About Joe

I'm a family man who loves spending time with my wonderful wife and 4 kids. I enjoy spending time on the beach, swimming, golfing, biking, eating at great restaurants, and drinking outstanding wine.

Joe purchased this cottage in 1999

Why Joe chose Siasconset

Fell in love with Nantucket in the mid-90's...found a great house and have been enjoying the island ever since. I welcome the opportunity to provide you with 'insider' information about Nantucket's greatest treasurers - i.e., beaches, restaurants, shops, camps, babysitting, etc.

What makes this cottage unique

Our cottage is clean and bright and has everything you need for a relaxing vacation in beautiful 'Sconset...minutes to the beach, Sconset market, and great restaurants.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful time. The house was perfect for our family of 6. It's very cute, clean, and in a great location.....just about a 10 minute walk to the beach and the quaint town of 'Sconset....and the shuttle bus stop.

One half of a Duplex!!!

  • 2 of 5

Although it was a shocker at first, this house is a Duplex. Didn't see much of the people living in the other side of the house, but you still know you are shareing the house.

The inside of the house was adequate for 6 people not eight. As a party of eight, it was crowded in the house.

John Capolla ( the landlord) also has a timer box on the hot water heater in the mechanical room, so you can only shower with hot water at certain times. Although, I find this Ridiculous , it is very easily fixed. Just take the off pins from the gray timer box off and you can have hot water all day. Oh boy ,what a treat!!! Thee closet door in the second bedroom has to come off also and stored outside while you stay there because the tv in the room is in the way of opening the door. Easily fixed though. There is a toolbox in the mechanical room also where you will find a Phillips head screw driver. With this tool you can easily take the door off the hinges and just put it outside up against the shed.

So other than a couple other hiccups in our stay , Joe expects you to be up and out by 10:00 AM with all the sheets, bedding, the towels,washed , dried, and folded before you leave. This is unreasonable. Be warned though, he will deduct money from your deposit, and tell you, you left a mess and he had to pay cleaning service extra to straighten the house up. ( What a joke. ) obviously he has a financial issue of his own, if he has to deduct your deposit, to pay for things he can't.

Be ware future renters!!

Owner's Response: Your review is very disturbing given all that I did for you to help you with your trip (before and during) as well as to figure out how to operate a brand new washer and dryer that you claimed were not working. It's clear that you never have used a washer and dryer before - i.e., you need to close the dryer door before turning it on...and that you need to push the the "start" button in order to turn on the washer. In addition, the fact that you left the house a mess and were not able to leave it the way you agreed to per the lease agreement that you signed, is indicative of the kind of person that you are. So, for all those who read your review, you should be ashamed of yourself for providing derogatory and uncalled for commentary. If you were upset, you should have called me the same way that you called me many times before and during your stay. You were clearly being spiteful by writing what you did.

Nantucket vacation

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time. Perfect for our family of 4. Cottage was clean and comfortable. Walking distance to market. Boys enjoyed the boogie boards and bikes provided. Thank you for sharing your home on Nantucket with us.
