About Malcolm Brooks
I have lived year round on Nantucket for 30 years and own an advertising/web design company. I'm a designer and multi-media artist. I rent the house for extra income in July and August, get off the island for 5+ weeks, take a road trip with my girlfriend and visit friends and family.
Malcolm Brooks purchased this House in 2004
What makes this House unique
This house is in the woods, abuts 25 acres of conservation land, super private and secluded with no nosey neighbors. It's at the very end of a dead end street that has no traffic on it. You can drive to town in eight minutes (depending on traffic). Deer walk through my property often, you can hear the ocean and breaking waves. It's a very special location!

Lovely and Comfortable Home
Malcolm was an excellent host, and the house was perfect for us. Excellent kitchen, great living space, and very clean and comfortable. Good biking distance to several beaches, easy drive to town. Overall a wonderful rental.
I'm glad you and your family enjoyed you stay and vacation at my house. I hope you have a great rest of summer.
excellent visit to Nantucket
Our stay in Malcom's home was excellent. We like to cook and the home has a fantastic kitchen - well equipped and spacious. The location is very private. The bathrooms are great and there is comfortable furniture in the living room. I have two suggestions (not criticisms):
put a tv in the living room (instead of the 2nd bedroom, perhaps) and some cushions for the outdoor furniture. Malcom is helpful and welcoming.
Great Nantucket Getaway
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!
Thank you for the great review, Im glad you had a wonderful vacation in my home. Come back soon :)
Great Space, Good Location
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!
Thank you for the great review, Im glad you had a great vacation and enjoyed staying in my home.
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.
Thanks for the review, Im glad your family had a great week and vacation in my home.
Great Location and House
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.
Thank for the review and I'm glad your family loved staying at my house for 2 weeks. Yes, its a fantastic location. You are more then welcome back next summer. Thanks again!
