Why Susanna Sheehan chose Madaket

We bought our house in Madaket after years of renting in Wauwinet at the very other side of the island. Madaket has a fun vibe that's great for families. It also has lots of pristine beaches. We like to go to the one down our street and then also explore the local roads to find access to the other ones that are more hidden but still close by. We love going to Smith's Point, too, because you get an ocean beach and a harbor beach and it's great for picking up some scallop shells.

We also love the history in Nantucket - all the old homes - and the unique shops and fine dining. What's great about the island is that for all it stays the same, it's always changing, too and there's always something going on in town. For a week's vacation for both relaxing and sightseeing there's no place we'd rather be in the summer! We're into our 19th year!

Wonderful Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

This Madaket beach home was wonderful! The home was clean, well appointed and located within walking distance to the beach. The owners were friendly and accommodating. We've been vacationing in Nantucket for over twenty years and this home ranks at the top of our list.

Great Madaket Home!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at this wonderful property for a week in early July 2017. We loved the layout of this house with its open living and kitchen area and spacious bedrooms. We originally were worried that the house did not have air conditioners, but no need to worry, we always had beautiful ocean breeze and the home has plenty of fans. The separate laundry room, fully stocked with beach towels and an extra bathroom was very convenient. The house is stocked with everything you need, beach chairs, great beach umbrellas, bicycles, even an extra cooler. I would highly recommend this house to any family looking to rent in beautiful Madaket! The house is only a short walk to private beach. The yard is beautifully maintained and the house is very private! The home owners responded quickly to one issue with had with trash pickup. If we vacation again in Nantucket, I will look at renting this house again!! Overall a great property all the way around !!!

A fantastic home for your stay on Nantucket!

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.

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.
