Fabulous in every way!

  • 5 of 5

Our trip was so great because of four factors:

1. The house was large enough for all of us to have our own "space", which is important to a family of six adults and two children. We each had room to spread out.

2. We were a block away from town, which was wonderful for all of us. There was always someplace to go or something to do, if one was looking for activity: nobody was ever "stuck" or trapped. I should add that we're a very close family, but maybe more so because we don't insist that everyone always be together.

3. The bathrooms, kitchen appliances, laundry appliances, and the outdoor shower ALL worked perfectly, AND they were all clean. EVERYTHING was clean! What a gift.

4. When we had a question or a problem (once we couldn't find a key, and once we blew a fuse), Eric picked up the phone when we called and walked us through the solutions. Quick, easy and responsive: problem solved.

I couldn't have asked for more for my family. It was an A+! Thank you, Eric!

Beautiful home that can fit larger parties/families! Plenty of space, beautiful outdoor area, and you can't beat the location only 5 minutes walking from downtown. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a getaway home in Nantucket, wouldn't stay anywhere else!!

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Eric's property on Nantucket. The house is great for a large group of people. Charming antique qualities, but also updated where necessary (bathrooms, kitchen, etc.). You couldn't ask for a better location! 5 minute walk into town was ideal, particularly with no car. The house also has a wonderful outdoor space (large outdoor table, lawn space with chairs, wooden swing, etc.) - which we made great use of. Eric is very responsive and easy to work with. Would definitely recommend - thanks for a great weekend!

Great place for Memorial Day weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Eric's place on Nantucket on Memorial and will definitely be returning again soon! The property is located on a quiet street close to town. It is very nicely decorated and has plenty of room for a big group. Eric is very easy to work with and a great communicator. Thanks for a great weekend!

Great place

  • 5 of 5

Pleasantly surprised at how new and antique charming the house was. We kept it full and for the people who had never been to Nantucket in our party, they were thrilled with the charm. Highly recommended.
