Madaket House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

Looks are deceiving! From the outside, Tucked Away appears to be a small house, but when you open the door you'll be amazed!!

The bright and spacious custom kitchen opens to both the living and dining spaces - both designed for gathering and entertaining. A huge deck with a Weber gas grill and dining for eight is located off the kitchen.

For those rainy days and cozy nights, the family room has a 55" smart HDTV and BluRay/DVD player. There is a 40" HDTV in the loft. Wireless internet is available for those who just can't disconnect. Our guests will enjoy a beautiful outdoor shower and central air conditioning upon their return from the beach or sight-seeing!

Two bedrooms are also located on the first floor - the master with a king bed, TV and adjoining full bath; and a queen with an adjoining full bath. Upstairs boasts a loft for reading or watching TV, as well as a queen bedroom and a twin (2) bedroom that share a full bath.

About Ann Kerouac

My husband and I have lived in New England for most of our lives. We did most of our growing up in Maine and currently live in Central Massachusetts - on the 'mainland.'

Ann Kerouac purchased this house in 2012

Why Ann Kerouac chose Nantucket

We first visited Nantucket in 2011 and fell in love with the island - we actually went house-hunting during that first visit! In August, 2012 we visited again and decided we definitely should buy a home on the island. We purchased our Madaket home in October, 2012. Since we aren't able to live there year 'round, we decided to share our home with others who want a comfortable place to stay.

What makes this house unique

What we liked best about our home is that it felt as though we were 'tucked away' from the hustle and bustle. We also loved the feeling we had when we first opened the front door. The home was so inviting!

While it had great bones, it needed some love. Over the winter of 2012/2013, we renovated the property, inside and out! Each off-season we have done more work on the house. 2016 now sees a beautiful new shed for all the beach equipment and coolers! Guests can also shelter their bicycles from the weather. :)

We survey all our guests and take their opinions to heart.

Made our first trip to Nantucket spectacular!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Nantucket and we are soooo happy that we chose to stay at Tucked Away! The owners are very nice, responsive, and easy to work with. The house was spectacular and VERY clean and spacious. They provided all of the abundance of towels, beach towels, and blankets. The kitchen had everthying we needed and more. There were lots of fun board games for the kids and dvds to choose from. The outdoor building with beach chairs, cooler, and sand toys were a great bonus along with the outdoor shower. The kids loved every inch of this house and it was so nicely decorated with a nice Nantucket beachy theme. The deck was nice and spacious and we ate many meals out there. We also received a very thoughtful, fun welcome gift on the kitchen counter! :)

Madaket Beach is right down the road and the sunsets there are spectacular. We also enjoyed eating dinner and ice cream at Millie's which is right down the road too.

The bike trail is at the end of the street and was very enjoyable!

We would absolutely stay here again! You won't regret booking this house!

Could not be better....

  • 5 of 5

This house was wonderful and we loved staying there. The owner was responsive and generous with all the supplies and activities equipment.

Ann has it decorated perfectly and it had all that we needed and more. Great location and the layout works well for a vacation. The outdoor shower was a highlight. The owners did a great job with the house. We are looking forward to next year.

A wonderful week with the family an grandkids

  • 5 of 5

"Tucked Away" was the perfect home away from home to spend time with our kids and grand children. Great quite location, layout and amenities were welcoming & just perfect. Beach toys and umbrella and cart were nice surprises. Back yard was tons of fun with lawn toys provided. Next time we may bring a baby sitter as there was room for everyone. We rented bikes locally on had them delivered, great for riding to the Beach for the great sunsets! Awesome.

Pictures don't do it justice.

  • 5 of 5

I had the pleasure of visiting Nantucket for the first time. I stayed in a beautiful home called TUCKED AWAY. This home has everything you could ever need to make your vacation a nice one. The pictures online do not do this home justice. You have to stay there in person whether you are by yourself or with family and friends

The location is so peaceful it's a short walk to one beach and about. 5 minute car ride to another. How about just a walk or a bike ride around the area, or you can just sit on the deck and enjoy the sunset. Just wanted to thank Mike and Ann for opening their wonderful home and making my first time to Nantucket a very amazing and memorable one. Whether it's your first time or returning to the island this home is a must stay you will fall I. Love with it.

Beautiful home, great location ....

  • 5 of 5

Tucked Away is a beautiful home. The house had everything that we needed. Plenty of room for 8 people. Each of our three daughters had their own room and enjoyed the loft area upstairs. This would also be a great house to vacation with other couples. Peaceful location. A short walk to the bus stop (and bike trail). We used the "Wave" often to go back and forth into town. Very Convenient. We really enjoyed the deck and watching the bunnies in the backyard. The outdoor shower was my favorite!

The owner, Ann, was wonderful to deal with! We will return and would love to stay at "Tucked Away" again. It was an amazing vacation!!

'Tucked Away' is located in a quiet neighborhood in Madaket only minutes from the beach and town. For those who don't bring or rent a vehicle, the wave bus stop is just a short walk to Madaket road.

Visitors can enjoy the most beautiful sunsets every evening at Madaket beach or while having a drink at Millie's.

Enjoy the peace and quiet of Madaket - much of this part of the island is protected by the Nantucket Land Preservation Association so you will see unobstructed views of rolling, natural landscape. Miles of bike trails are just around the corner, as well as walking and running trails. Several wonderful beaches are just a few minutes from the front door. The historic town is a 10 minute drive away and is filled with fabulous shops and excellent restaurants. Be sure to visit the Whaling Museum!
