Overview

Nantucket House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

'Catydid' is an upside-down house completed in 1989. The second floor includes the original cottage built by my wife's father in 1967. We had it moved aside by a crane, while a full basement and brand-new first floor were constructed. Afterward, it was hoisted atop the new construction and enclosed. We expanded and renovated it again in 1999.

Thus, the house is a blend of old and new, as are the mix of contemporary furnishings and antiques.

From the western balcony, you can see most of Madaket Harbor as well as glimpses of Eel Point and Tuckernuck. A quarter mile to the south lies the Atlantic, where surf-lovers can enjoy one of the longest and most uncrowded beaches on Nantucket.

About The Owner

My wife grew up on Nantucket and insisted her two daughters spend as much time as possible enjoying life near the water, just as she did in Madaket as a young girl. That's why 'Catydid' isn't just a vacation house--it's our second home.

The Owner purchased this house in 1989

Why The Owner chose Nantucket

My wife inherited the original cottage now known as 'Catydid' from her father, Mike Todd, former marine contractor, town selectman, and well-known island figure. They can trace their lineage back to the whaling era.

What makes this house unique

Madaket for Nantucketers means access to the water, either by swimming and fishing in the nearby surf or boating on Madaket Harbor and points beyond via Hither Creek Marina. It has some of the most picturesque and uncrowded beaches on the island, all accessible from our house by walking or at most a short car ride. If you love the water, and spectacular sunsets from the beach, give us a call.

Ideal Island Get Away

  • 5 of 5

I have been enjoying my summers at this property for over two decades now and will never stay anywhere else. The location is perfect for those looking to retreat to a quiet get away while still having quick access to the livelihood of town. The home is also wonderful because of its ability to facilitate outdoor living in good weather and to provide a cozy nest on foggy days. Being one of the tallest homes in the neighborhood, it offers uninterrupted 360 degree views of Madaket harbor and the surf, with a generous deck to enjoy lobster dinners and the most magnificent sunsets imaginable. So many warm and wonderful memories were made in this house I cannot say enough remarkable things about it.
