Why Julia Jensen chose Nantucket Island
This is the perfect Nantucket get away vacation home in Polpis that's a short drive to town but still a great escape from all the summer hustle and bustle. A short walk to a private beach and a beautiful new 11' x 40' black bottom heated swimming pool.

Perfect vacation home - hope to return!
We had a wonderful stay at 146 Polpis Road. The house was exactly as described and in impeccable shape. The photos also don't do it justice - it's more beautiful and spacious in person. We were 5 adults and 2 children, and definitely would have been comfortable with a few more people. The main house is organized as two "wings", meaning a master and another bedroom (with two twin beds) on each side, along with a living space...so ideal for two families to provide privacy. We also used the "guest house" above the garage which we found to be convenient and also very clean. A few pros I'd like to call out: 1) walking proximity to a private beach (about a 7 min walk down an easy trail); 2) cleanliness and overall amenities (house comes with everything you need, including clean and luxurious linens, bath towels, beach towels and beach supplies); 3) heated perfectly sized pool (who doesn't love that??); 4) very comfortable furniture and beds; 5) outdoor space for lounging (two decks provide comfortable seating, nice views and the front yard was great for the children to run around). The only cons: 1) have to drive to get to downtown the fastest (about a 3.5 mile distance); 2) wireless internet was kind of spotty (but you really want to disconnect anyway, so this didn't bother us much).
Julia was a pleasure to work with; extremely responsive before and during the rental if we had any questions. We really loved this place and highly recommend it - it has everything you need! I hope we can return some day!
Lovely, traditional Nantucket home
We stayed here for 4 weeks and were very happy. The owner is delightful and helpful. The house is well cared for and organized. The garden contains an abundant display of hydrangeas -- in bloom our entire visit.
We enjoyed the pool and the various living spaces inside. Each of us had quite a bit of privacy. This home feels larger inside on the first floor than it looks in the photos. We did not use the cottage bedroom. It looks simple but very nice with a high ceiling. The basement bedroom is very comfortable with a view of the pool lit up at night. However, we felt the best bedrooms were the one on the first floor and the two on the second floor. The A/C worked well throughout. Delightful rental.
The property was surperb! Newly renovated and decorated. Perfect spot on the island.
Sometimes pictures look better than the actual experience. Not the case here. The owners were extremely responsive and accessible. We had our family of 10 including two grandchildren and we had plenty of space and we didn't use the suite above the garage.
We have just returned from the most enjoyable holiday on Nantucket. We were pleased to find the pictures on the website accurately reflected the beauty of the house. There was plenty of room for everyone to spread out and the walk to the beach was quite lovely!
Wonderful, immaculate house in Polpis
146 Polpis is among the top houses we have rented over the years on Nantucket. Julia has done a wonderful job maintaining an immaculate, cozy and relaxing house. The views of the harbor at sunset are spectacular, the pool refreshing after a day at the beach and various sitting rooms of the house relaxing to have a cocktail or read a book. The house feels like a private home, not a rental (all the more apparent after we changed houses to an over-priced "rental" in Monomoy!). 146 Polis is highly recommended.
Amazing house in Polpis
This house in Polpis is quite a gem! Just close enough to town but also far enough away to escape the crowds. A huge, grassy front yard which was great for a family game of soccer, was a welcoming sight as we pulled in the driveway. Beautiful hydrangea and blue stone welcome you into this simply elegant home. Each bedroom was comfortable, the sheets and towels and pool towels were all great quality. The wonderful collection of books and board games assured no one was without an activity. The kitchen was well-stocked with all necessary cooking items and accessories for the times we cooked at home. The outdoor porch was fantastic and was our most-used "room" as it overlooked the pool and the quiet and peaceful surroundings. The newly installed saltwater pool and pool deck area were also wonderful. The landscaping around the pool was a beautiful backdrop. We walked to the gorgeous nearby beach where the owners keep kayaks available for guest use. The owners were always quick to respond with any questions we had. This wonderful house easily felt like home for our week long stay and we hope to make it back!
