About the property

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.

Quaint, charming, historic home.

  • 5 of 5

"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.

Perfect location and setting for a Nantucket adventure

  • 5 of 5

I cannot recommend staying at Pleasant Times enough! Marti & Mark Marache (Owners) and their caretaker, Herb, were incredibly responsive and helpful whether by phone call, text message or in-person stopover. For instance, there had been some initial confusion with the home away-vrbo online booking system (turns out I had 2 accounts that the system was mixing up) and the Maraches were patient and helpful in figuring it out (much more so than the home away help desk).

Whether you want to grill pizzas, while friends and family lounge comfortably in the backyard, listen to music throughout the house with the Sonos system, or head out for a bike ride or to the beach, this house has it all.

The backyard is the perfect combination of shade and sun (and there's a fantastic outdoor shower). The basement is amazingly stocked with bikes, beach chairs, coolers, beach umbrellas, boogie boards and even corn hole (aka "bags")! The house is delightfully charming and oh so New England - Nantucket. You can't imagine being anywhere else than where you are.

Book it and enjoy!

Wonderful house, great in-town location!!

  • 5 of 5

We love this quaint and beautiful house with it's original charm and modern updates! We especially love the lush backyard, the outdoor shower, and the attic playroom/bedroom with the lookout. As parents of toddlers, we appreciated the convenience of being just a few blocks from town and Children's Beach. It's also just a bike ride from the Chicken Box, Cisco Brewery, and other points of interest.

Comfortable, Convenient and Quaint

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved the original charm and character of this home. The location is close to town, which made it easy and convenient to go out to the museums, tours and some of the best restaurants we have ever been to. The home has the perfect mix of historical charm and modern amenities, a great table to eat outside in the backyard and plenty of room inside. The owner was extremely friendly and accommodating, going above and beyond to make our stay as enjoyable as possible.

Perfect Fall Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Pleasant Times certainly lives up to its name. We descended on Nantucket for a beautiful weekend away from the city and had a great experience at this property. It is perfectly positioned to get down town and not too far from other popular destinations (Cisco Brewery/Chicken Box). The "Beauty Shack" was the highlight of the sleeping arrangements by all guests present, an attic with 3 twin beds, perfect for late night pillow talk.

I would certainly look to reserve this property in the future and I recommend others do as well.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your nice comments and taking the time to give us valuable feedback. We look forward to hosting you again at Pleasant Times. We are making some neat enhancements to the "beauty shack" that I think that you'll like but that will maintain the character. Take good care. All the best. Marti Oh may I have your address please? I would like to send you something in the mail. I wanted to have it on the dining room table for your arrival but it wasn't ready on time.
