About Eric

We are architects and love beautifully styled homes. We have conducted business, vacationed and owned homes in Nantucket for years.

Eric purchased this house in 2010

Why Eric chose Nantucket

Nantucket Island, with miles of empty beaches, 80% of all land held in conservancy, and an architecturally preserved building stock and townscape, is one of the most naturally beautiful, historical, and sought after resort destinations in America.

Charming house in ideal location

  • 4 of 5

This was a very charming historic house in a perfect location 5 minutes walk into town. I think there is space in this home for at most 8-10 people, and it is nice that the house has 2 bathrooms and a nice backyard for the kids to play in.

The pro's:

- location was perfect, back yard is large, kitchen is nicely appointed. wonderful round table in diningroom perfect for any group up to 8-10 people. Photos are very accurate.

- Bedrooms are cute, and most have nice cotton sheets. Double single bed rooms ideal for children.

- bikes in basement for both the kids and adults

- internet service was very much appreciated by our family.

- if you rent during the winter, there is a heating system (though we did not test it out) which was nice to see.

The con's:

- floors are white, so any dirt that is brought into the house shows immediately and we had a few rainy days, and 3 kids, so that tended to be a problem. Owners want you not to wear shoes in the house so bring your own house shoes...

- the house is nicely appointed, but there seems to be a lot of stuff everywhere and no place to put or charge say an iPad.

- Closets are also full so there is little/no space to put/hang your own stuff so if you stay a whole week that might be a problem (we only stayed a long weekend so it wasn't as big of a deal).

- sheets have to be washed before you leave the house. (that was probably the biggest hassle, luckily 3 of us took a later boat and it rained the day we left, so we had time to do this, but if you use most of the beds that means you have to schedule in at least 3 loads of wash and dry)

- chairs and couches are relatively short, this might not be so ideal for older guests, we brought my mom and uncle (in their 80's) it wasn't easy for them to get out of them once they sat down.

I would most likely rent again. For our group, it worked out very well. Again, it's a very charming house.

Memorial Day Group Rental

  • 5 of 5

This house provided the perfect Nantucket experience. Everything about it -- the space, the decor, the piano, the yard -- was wonderfully appointed and suited our group of 10 nicely. With five bedrooms, you can comfortably fit friends and family, and the close proximity to town makes exploring a breeze. Additions like bikes, a hammock and an electric grill round out the experience to create something truly memorable.

Perfect Weekend!!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing Valentines weekend!! The house was absolutely beautiful!! It is a five minute walk to town along the harbor. The beds are extremely comfortable, the bathrooms perfect. Every amenity you would need for a weekend getaway. When we weren't wandering through town, we were sitting by the fire enjoying a selection of books to browse through. I have been in plenty of homes in the past seven years in Nantucket, and this was our favorite. Cant wait to go back!

Perfect retreat

  • 5 of 5

My wife and i invited my son, his wife and their 2 yr. old and had three blissful days in this perfect cottage last September. The house is not only beautifully furnished but also modern and comfortable. Great beds, great kitchen, wonderful modern and large bathroom , lovely garden and all in wonderful condition. It is so close to town one can walk everywhere, including restaurants and shopping. We were delight, and would recommend it highly to anyone.

The Neighborhood

Windswept beaches, sand dunes, blinking lighthouses and a charming pace of life await on this 50-square mile island. The world's former top whaling port is now designated a National Historic District. Leave the car and take the shuttle or bike around. Seaside cottages, old whaling captains' mansions and historic harbors contain quaint inns, boutique stores, chowder shacks and upscale dining delights. Swim, surf or load up the tackle for Nantucket's excellent striper, bluefish and bonito fishing.

Getting around

Nantucket has car and moped rental services, bike rentals, taxis, and public transportation. Coming to the island without a car is much easier with all of these options. Downtown Nantucket is pedestrian friendly, and it can be faster to get around on foot due to the congestion in the summer. The island has an extensive network of bike paths which make traveling by bike quite efficient. Walking and biking are also a great way to experience the many historic sites and natural beauty on Nantucket.
