Waterfront Downtown Apartment on Nantucket Harbor - As Good as it Gets!

Bedrooms 2
Space 900 sq. ft.
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 0 - 7 nights


About the property

1 bedroom plus large loft, sleeps 4

Imagine yourself sitting on this second floor deck with a glass of wine as the wind quiets down and the harbor turns to wavy glass. The evening light just before sunset gives the anchorage and Monomoy shore a warm pink glow. It’s magical,……… and it’s still the same serene setting as you step through the French doors with your morning coffee. This is what every Nantucket vacation should be like, but very few can claim it.

~~~~~~There is truly nothing else like this on Nantucket!~~~~~~

This new second floor apartment has it all: The charm and convenience of being downtown and on the waterfront, with incredible views of the harbor from every room.

The apartment is just two blocks from Lower Main Street on Commercial Wharf above the owner's very quiet architectural office on a cobblestoned side street.

The usual statement from our renters as they first enter the apartment is: “Wow, this is even better than the pictures!”

Guestbook comments from the owner

Oh my goodness did we ever love it!!!!! It was perfect. Our daughter said she wants her first place to be just like that. Ralph and I would love to come back and just have a romantic getaway, but only if we could stay at your place. The location was incredible - so easy, we walked everywhere.

Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your wonderful home, we are so grateful. It was everything we hoped for and more.

Beautiful Downtown Apartment

I had the pleasure of staying at this downtown apartment last weekend. It is the perfect place to stay in Nantucket. The apartment is beautiful and the views are amazing. If you are looking for the best place to stay in Nantucket I highly recommend this spot.

Well-appointed cottage

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful location. Stroll into town or sit and enjoy the breeze on the deck coming off the harbor. The interior layout is convenient and the design and craftsman's attention to detail are perfect. If you're looking for the perfect backdrop to a Nantucket getaway, you've found it. Bright, airy, on the water with all the amenities. Quiet, but steps from the action!

Excellent Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at the apartment and found it to be a perfect location! Walking distance to the charming downtown cobblestone streets with many shops and restaurants. The view incredible. It is beautifully decorated and well-appointed with everything needed for your convenience. Would undoubtedly stay again. Great accomodations for 2-4 people.

Nantucket Mini Palace

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this wonderful 2 bedroom, 2nd floor cottage very close to town and right on the water. It was beautifully furnished, fully equipped and had all the amenities necessary for a great vacation. The design is superb and the construction is high end. It has a deck off the "great room" with a terrific view of the harbor. What more can I say.
