About Hadley Dutra

Our family lives on Nantucket year round. My husband owns a pool building and landscaping company Waterscapes by Jesse Dutra and I own a small outdoor furniture business called Teak by Hadley. We have three children ages 9, 7 and 3. My husband built and the pool and spa at this property so there is a lot of loving attention to detail. The gardens are also spectacular in the summer and are maintained by his landscaping company.

Hadley Dutra purchased this house in 2005

Why Hadley Dutra chose Nantucket Town

The location of our house affords both privacy and a close proximity to town and beaches. The lot the house sits on is quite large and it is adjacent to a lovely walking trail that is ideal for dog walking or taking kids on a nature walk. The house is across the street from Prospect Hill Cemetery and the famous Maria Mitchell Observatory may be seen from the front yard.

What makes this house unique

Private pool and yard, pet friendly.

Wish we could have stayed longer!

I've rented houses all over the island and this one was really top notch. The hosts live on the island so easily accessible if anything comes up. House was spotless considering it is pet friendly. The property is well maintained. LOVE the outdoor grill with fireplace and huge picnic table. Kitchen was well stocked. Pool is heated. Owner strongly prefers no one under 18 stay in the cottage. It is located within the pool area so although my two teenage kids were disappointed, I understood the owner's position. Highly recommend this house.

Beautiful house and property! Good location. The backyard, pool, hot tub and grill area are all amazing. Had some issues with the hot tub at times but the owners were very prompt and responsive.

A Wonderful Stay!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I recently stayed here and it was as good as it gets. For the last 4 years we’ve stayed at different houses on Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard and this was no question our favorite. The location was excellent, the house was extremely clean and well maintained and the pool/hot tub/outdoor area was exceptional.

Location wise, it’s about a 15-20 minute walk to town or a 5 minute drive. Stop and Shop is just down the road. Regarding restaurants, obviously in town there endless options but we had a 4 month old baby so we did take out most of the time. Our favorite places were The Sea Grille (right next to Stop and Shop) and Lola Burger. Both were about a 5 minute drive for pick up.

Regarding the house, the first floor has a nice living room/kitchen, dining area, washer/drier, full bathroom, master bedroom and nice porch area. The second floor has two bedrooms and a half bathroom. The cottage has an additional bedroom and full bathroom along with an additional cable TV.

The outdoor area is just awesome. Heated pool, hot tub, full kitchen/BBQ area (all fenced in), and a large lawn area with a hammock. One of the things we were most impressed with was how private it felt.

Finally, the owners (Hadley and Jesse) were as nice and professional as they come.

Just a great place to stay at that we’re looking forward to visiting again in the future.
