Nantucket Town House Rental Photos and Description

House, 6 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 11)

A very quaint and charming house built in 1807, plaqued by the Nantucket Historical Society. The house has 10 fireplaces, and much of the original character. Perfect for just a couple or a large family or group of friends, (as the house has a 3rd floor) and can sleep up to 10-12 people. Nice level fenced in backyard, perfect for children and BBQs. There are ceiling fans and speakers in each room, and plenty of amenities, including newly renovated bathrooms and an outdoor shower. Also an easy walking distance from the ferry, and to all the shops and restaurants downtown. Just a quick drive to any number of beaches and close to many biking and walking trails and the supermarket. Also with many historic sites and museums just around the corner.

Weekend to Remember!

  • 5 of 5

This is my second time staying at this location, and it was another perfect 10! Quick and easy walk downtown, plus short bike distance to the beach or even Cisco brewery. Even though we were close to all the action downtown, it was very quiet and relaxing. The addition of the outdoor table was great for eating dinner outside before the sun went down and the privacy of the enclosed backyard made it even better. There were even bikes available in the basement and yard games. As for the inside, the bathrooms are beautifully re-done, and each bedroom is spacious with Nantucket charm everywhere you look. Plus the owners were great about giving recommendations for food or activities and making sure we could reach them if we needed anything at all. We were all so sad to go, and look forward to our next trip here since we already all agreed we must come back!

Awesome home and location

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at this house a number of times now and absolutely love it. Situated just off of Main Street, the location is extremely convenient – it simultaneously provides the benefits of a very short walk into town as well as the quiet solitude you get from being nestled on a side street. Other destinations on the island such as the beaches, golf courses, brewery, and Bartlett’s farm are only a short bike ride or car ride away.

Inside, the house itself is well-maintained, spacious, and can comfortably accommodate either large numbers or small. The three floors are perfect for relaxing, spending time with family/friends, or for privacy. I think one of the coolest aspects of the house is that it is able to maintain its historical appeal while also being well-equipped with modern amenities from kitchen to dining to bedroom to bath to meet every need.

Outside, the house has a great backyard that is ideal for grilling or simply just relaxing on the lawn furniture. Maybe one of the more underrated features of the house worth mentioning is that it seems as if every detail related to enjoying a day at the beach has been thought of here. From the sheer quantity and high quality of beach supplies (coolers, chairs, umbrellas, games, toys) stored in the basement to the outdoor shower on the back patio, the house has everything you will need and more for a great day at the beach.

Finally, it needs to be noted that the owners here are extremely helpful and accommodating to make sure you have everything you need. I would highly recommend this house to anyone looking to spend time on Nantucket.

Great family vacation, walking distance to downtown!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time visiting Nantucket, but our first since having children. This is a great house, and super convenient, right off of main street and less than a 15 minute walk to the Children's Beach. The house itself is excellently maintained with modern fixtures, while also keeping an historic charm. The kids especially loved the arts and crafts space in the attic. The large, eat in kitchen was great for family meals on rainy days, and the patio was perfect for grilling and eating outside on sunny days. Everyone got a kick out using the outdoor shower after a long day at the beach also! I cannot say enough great things about Pleasant Times, as it made a great vacation to a magical place even more special.

Girls weekend- location, location, location!

  • 5 of 5

Loved this house! It has old charm but updated bathrooms and kitchen. Easy walk from ferry and main street on quaint cobblestone streets which was so important since we didn't have a car. The visitor center was off main street from which we took a courtesy shuttle to Ciscoe brewery for a day trip. We also spent some time in the private, well manicured backyard cooking on the grill. The owners were super helpful and made sure we had everything we needed. I would definitely recommend "pleasant times" to family and friends! I hope to return soon!

Wonderful Location, home and owners

  • 5 of 5

Despite a crazy trip due to weather and canceled ferries, we had a wonderful time renting Pleasant times. A nice couples trip to the stroll was even better do this awesome house and its amazing location a couple blocks from town. There is ample room for sleeping and lounging around and great amenities (probably even better in summer when its not 30 degrees with 30 mph winds). The best part was the owners though. After our ferries got canceled and we were stranded on the Island, the owners told us not to worry and allowed us to stay an extra night at no charge. This helped relieve the stress after being shut out of the last two ferries to leave the island. We would definitely stay here again and take advantage of the great house and location.
