Wonderful family week away
We had an amazing week staying in Pleasant Times! There were six of us that stayed for Labor Day week. The house was clean, comfy and had so many amenities, but the best was location, location location! We were able to walk to so many places but also have a great quiet home to walk back to. The kitchen had everything that you could possibly need, It felt like being home. We loved every minute of our family vacation on our favorite island. Thank you so much for letting us stay in your home.
Heather and Family
Dear Heather and family, It was a pleasure having you in our home. Mark and I are glad you enjoyed your family and your stay!!! We were delighted to host you at Pleasant Times and we hope to have you back again. Take good care. Warmly, Marti
2nd Times A Charm
This is our second time staying at Pleasant Times and once again it was perfect. Everything about the location will keep us coming back. Marti was very active in making sure we had everything we needed.
We are so sorry that we cannot give you a review as we never made it to Nantucket due to Hurrican Jose. I am sure it would have been lovely and the owners seemed so nice! Maybe some time in the future we can experience Nantucket.
Hi you will definitely experience Nantucket!! I will make sure of that! We were very sad that the hurricane delrailed your stay at Pleasant Times and on this amazing island. We will hold some days open for you and will make arrangements for you all have your vacation here at this very special, unique and historical place. Thank you for giving me your number so I can call you to make a plan! Don't worry you can keep Nantucket dreaming!! Until then take good care!!
All our best, Marti
WOW, just wow, couldn't have been better!
Everything about our stay this past weekend was amazing! Marti and Mark were fantastic, have to give a special shout-out to Marti. I couldn't think of a better person to work with and rent from - THANK YOU times a million! On top of that, the house was fantastic, it was roomie yet cozy. The backyard was awesome (extra points for outdoor shower) and it was a super simple walk to/from downtown. Suffice to say, we will most definitely be renting from Marti and Mark again. Absolute no-brainer!
Incredible charm, close to town, fantastic hosts
We wanted a big, beautiful and charming house within 5 minutes walk to downtown Nantucket - and we found it at Pleasant Times!
We hosted a family reunion with 11 people (8 adults, 3 kids) and everyone was smitten with the history of this spacious captain's house and the historic street where it is situated. No one wanted to leave as everyone slept comfortably and the Nantucket whaler motif permeated throughout the house. We felt like we went back in time reading books, playing cards and exploring the local sights.
The owners Mark and Marti went above and beyond providing local knowledge to beaches that the non-locals would not have known about. When we had a question - they were quick to respond which was an added bonus.
The extra amenities provided were perfect for all of us. Beach toys, umbrellas, chairs and multiple bikes with trailer for pulling kids. Their BBQ setup/outdoor space was spectacular as was their lawn to host an outdoor gathering. Mark and Marti even made sure we knew about the ice fridge in the basement - a great help in the June heat.
I would recommend this house to anyone who wants location, spacious, history, charm, and fantastic hosts. I look forward to returning.
Tom. Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a good and thorough review. We are honored that you loved and enjoyed our home as much as we do. I love that the history and charm were not lost on you all!!! It is just one of the things that make the house a very special place. We hope to host you again in the future at Pleasant Times!!! All our best, Marti & Mark.
Quaint, charming, historic home.
"Best house we've ever rented" said my husband. Our family shared this amazing home with our good friends for 4 days. 9 of us in all including 4 teenagers and a 10 year old. The house is incredibly spacious with room after room of charming period pieces. The house is full of supplies, from kitchen items to towels to bikes and beach supplies. Great location. Super easy walk to town and a great starting point for bike rides to either end of the island (if you're feeling energetic). The owners were great to work with and made the rental process super easy. They truly wanted to ensure that we had a great stay in their home on the island that they love.
Christa thank you so much for writing such as lovely review. We're glad you and your family enjoyed the house as much as we do. It is very unique and therefore precious to us as well. We hope to host you again at Pleasant Times. Our very best regards, Marti & Mark Marache
