PRIVATE & SECLUDED LOCATION (1.25 acre property)

This ''Green'' Nantucket home was designed and renovated in 2005 and is a Green home. The house has a large Solar panel on the bedroom southwest facing roof that provides 100% of the hot water May through October.

The house has 2 bedrooms and sleeps 4. The first floor is 1400 square feet, the lower level 700 square feet. The home is open like a loft, bright, airy with a lot of windows and light! There are ceiling fans in the kitchen, great room and master bedroom. This is a 2000 square foot 2 bedroom home, NOT a small, cramped cottage.

(Refrigerator, Propane Range with Convection Oven, Dishwasher) There is a microwave and toaster. Fully stocked with pots, pans, dishes, silverware, utensils, popcorn maker, coffee maker, etc...

There is an island bar with seating for three, and a John Boos® kitchen table that seats 4. Full size standup washer and dryer unit is housed in the kitchen closet for easy access.

Bins outside for garbage and recycling are steps from the kitchen door to encourage the green lifestyle. Weber® charcoal grill for outdoor grilling. There's also a table and 4 chairs on the deck for outdoor dining.


The great room is big with a 20 foot ceiling and ceiling fan. The room is full of modern retro furniture with a large comfortable couch and lots of artwork.

Bathroom is beautiful with PA black slate non slip floors. A large walk-in shower with black late walls and floor with a glass shower door. A shower head with great water pressure and a handheld shower head. Theres a 40' X 60' glass block wall on the outside wall so it feels like an outdoor shower.

Bedroom on the lower level has two single twin beds, AC, 32' TV, Cable, DVD. Bathroom with tub, shower, slate floor, laminated Pergo® floors, large windows and private entrance. New cotton bed linens.


Located at the end of a private road in a very private, secluded spot surrounded with woods, secluded and quiet! It is about 3 miles from town, 1 1/2 miles to Surfside beach and 3/4 of a mile to the south Shore. A bike path is at the end of my street to Surfside Road. There is also a shuttle stop for a quick ride into town. A car is recommended however. Don't be surprised if you see deer walking thru the yard early in the morning and early evening.


When you rent the house you get a beautiful, clean and organized house with all of the above. This is not a hotel. Plastic bags, laundry detergent, shampoo, soap, dishwasher detergent, saran wrap, sandwich bags, charcoal for the grill, etc... are the Renters Responsibility.

Great Nantucket Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We - a German couple with our 8 year old son - really loved our stay at Malcom's House. It has a great private setting and a wonderful open space feeling with a lot of sun light. We liked how Malcolm furnished his home with a lot of love for details. Malcolm was a great host, very responsive and helpful. We took the bikes to get into town and to the beaches close by, but the car to get to Cisco Beach which is great for surfing and boogie boarding. Nantucket Surf School offers high standard surf lessons there. Our son loved it. All in all a perfect location for our summer vacation! We would have loved to stay longer and hope to come back!

Great Space, Good Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 9 nights and this house was an excellent fit for our family of 4 - very open, bright, clean and comfortable. The kitchen is perfect - everything you could possibly need, easy to work in and keep clean. The beds are comfortable too - which is usually hard for us to find. We had some very hot days and the AC downstairs kept up with it and we never had to turn on the AC in the upstairs bedroom.

Location is good - we definitely needed a car. The beach at the end of the road was closed for nesting birds so we drove to a beach every day. It's an easy drive into town and good central starting point for any adventure.

Malcolm is a pleasure to deal with - I highly recommend this home!

Great location

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful week, and Malcolm's house was perfect. We did a lot of cycling and having a bike path at the end of the private road was very convenient to get into town or to the beach. It was wonderfully quiet and peaceful. The house was well appointed, especially the kitchen which had everything you needed. Beds were very comfortable. Thanks Malcolm for sharing your home.

Great Location and House

  • 5 of 5

House is in a perfect location, about 1.5 miles up the street from Surfside Beach - our favorite - and a few miles from town. Bike path is right at end of lane, from there you can run or bike all over island. My athletic teens took an am run or bike ride down to Surfside or in o town every morning

Kitchen is well-equipped and first floor is very large and sunny. House is extremely private and peaceful, which was very important to us. EXCELLENT WIFI and cell service, which was also important since we both had to stay in some contact with work. Easy drive to town or large/new Stop and Shop for groceries.

We stayed for two weeks and hit every beach on the island depending on the day. Highlight was driving out to Great Point - in our SUV - glorious day and we had the beach to ourselves.

Perfect Nantucket getaway house for two

  • 5 of 5

A friend who had stayed at this house the summer before recommended it to us, and it was the perfect choice! My husband and I rented for two weeks, and we didn't want to leave. It looks even better in person than in the pictures. The house has a great modern layout - lots of light! -- and it is impeccably maintained.

Also, the house is nicely appointed on the lot with plenty of privacy. Some nights, you can even hear the ocean, and there are beautiful birds; it's just lovely. We spent a lot of time out on the deck, which is the perfect place for a cocktail or dinner.

The house had everything we needed - was well appointed with appliances, pots & pans, a washer & dryer, etc. And it's really close to town so we were able to take advantage of many of the great restaurants Nantucket has to offer.

We've already booked Malcolm's house for later this summer. This house is a Nantucket gem!

Owner's Response: Im glad you enjoyed your stay. Everyone who stays or visits the house says it feels like home and they love the privacy. I would recommend bringing a car however, the island is a lot bigger then you think. Thanks for your review!

Nice space but needs attention to detail

  • 3 of 5

PROS: This great private house is in a central location. There's lots of privacy and the first floor has a nice open floor plan, great circulation of air with the fans and modern appointments. The transaction with Malcolm was easy and he let us check in early.

CONS: My biggest issue was the pervasive mold/mildew smell in the downstairs basement. Nantucket is very humid and this was a rainy season but the smell was unbearable despite a constantly running humidifier. Had I known this, it would have been a deal breaker. If you need one bedroom and didn't need this downstairs space the rental would have been fine. The other issue is that the place needs to be PROFESSIONALLY cleaned before guests stay. Dirty floors and cobwebs all over were not what we expected. Also, the very basic amenities like hand soap, paper towels (would have helped me keep it cleaner!) and garbage bags are inexpensive and should have been left for guests so they don't have shop for these in town.

Owner's Response: As far as a smell and stuffiness downstairs: There was an AC unit in the window of the downstairs bedroom and if you run the AC there is no smell or stuffiness at all. You can not open the windows downstairs because of the extremely high humidity on the island, and the house being 3/4 of a mile from the ocean. (A sheet is sent to all renters with tips about staying in the house and this issue is addressed) There's also a dehumidifier. As far as supplying soap, plastic bags, paper towels, household items, etc... That's the renters responsibility. The house is professionally cleaned. She cleans the entire house, top to bottom, drawers, floors, shelves, etc. between each rental. There has never been a complaint about the above issues in the past. I want everyone to have a 5 star experience and stay at the house.
