Loved Madakat and the House!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful stay at this house. It was perfect for our family and was such an easy walk or bike ride to the beach. The house was wonderful and well-kept and had everything we needed! Would definitely stay here again!

Thanks Susanna!

Charming and Private!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year staying at this house. We love Nantucket and have been coming to the island for years. This rental is clean, beautifully furnished, private and just a short distance from Millie's and Madaket beach.

A fantastic home for your stay on Nantucket!

  • 5 of 5

Our third stay in this wonderful home. Quiet, secluded and just a few minutes walk to the beaches on Madaket. Bring clothes...everything else is there for your stay.

Nantucket at its best

  • 5 of 5

Outstanding location, beach is very quite, and easy to access. Property is very nice, well maintained, spacious and clean. Landscaping is very well thought out and is certainly worth mentioning - you will spend as much time inside as out

It is easy to understand all the positive reviews. If staying in Madaket again, this will be the first place I check for availability.

Great Family House!

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved this house! You feel welcome as soon as you walk through the door. The owners have clearly taken great care in making this a comfortable and carefree vacation retreat. The house is very well maintained, with comfy, crisp white and blue furnishings in the family room and fun carpets throughout. Our kids loved the bunk room, as well as the loft for relaxing and t.v. watching after a day at the beach. The house is immaculate and had everything we needed.

The neighborhood is truly wonderful and peaceful. The house is in a private setting, tucked in behind some shrubs. We loved both walking and taking the bikes along the quaint, sandy road to the beautiful beach not more than 5 minutes away. A big thanks to the owners for providing all of the beach gear, including pails, shovels, boogie boards, chairs and plenty of bikes! It was great not having to bring or buy anything once we got on the island. Our 3 kids had the best time wave jumping and enjoying Long Pond, located within eyesight of the beach-amazing!

The property is also only a 5 minute walk to the shuttle stop and bike path. It is also an easy bike ride to Millie's restaurant/store, where you can get an ice cream, eat a delicious meal, or pick up some necessities.

The owners were so gracious and accommodating in answering all of our questions and more. Their tip about where to go to feed the ducks was an especially huge hit with my kids!

We highly recommend this house. We have been renting nice homes on the Cape for the past 9 years (from Great Island in W. Yarmouth to the rolling hills of Truro), but this Nantucket location beats all. We are returning next year!

Great Place for a Family Trip

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful week at your beautiful home. We had everything we needed and appreciated the fact we were a short 5 minute walk from the beach. The beauty of Nantucket coupled with the warmth of your made this a very special trip. Thank you!

At the very West end of Nantucket, Madaket is famous for its fabulous sunsets. This area has great sandy beaches with lots of fun waves for sun worshiping, swimming, and surf-casting for blue fish and it boasts a protected harbor for boating or just taking in the beautiful views.

Other Activities: clean beaches, great shopping, historical sites, fabulous restaurants, great family area

Scroll map down to see how Starbuck Road dead-ends at the beach, a short 5 minutes away from our house. Where the road ends, the beach begins.
