Beautiful Inside Even When the Weather was Stormy

  • 5 of 5

We felt like we were living outside in this gorgeous home. The windows in every room brightened the interior...unique window placement added light in unexpected places. We had some pretty wet days during our stay, but we felt safe and dry within. Great way to watch lightning!

The pictures of the setting are exactly what we were wanting. Vistas of the ocean, a sense of isolation, and easy access to the beach.

The interior of the house was perfect...the decor brought the nautical theme throughout. Loved the blue fish tile in the master shower...including the slightly raised shell tiles on the floor. All the bedrooms were husband and I were in the large master bedroom suite...our daughter used the bedroom that had access to the deck through a sliding glass door...perfect since she had brought her dog.

The kitchen had all the tools we needed for cooking. A couple items we also look for when we rent are a wooden cutting board, a rubber spatula, and sharp knives. This house had them all.

Two large dining tables with views of the ocean allowed us to enjoy the outside even on cool wet days.

We didn't get to use the deck or wooden porch as much as we wanted...the weather was not cooperative, but the house invited the surrounding to fill the space within, so we were very content.

We were glad we had a 4-wheel drive Jeep to get to get around on the island. Not necessary to get to the property, but if you want to explore the island on some of the back roads, it really is necessary.

Would love to return again!

Comfortable and beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying in Love Sand. The house is very comfortable and in a perfect location. Only ten minutes from town but secluded at the end of the island. We were a bit irrratated that the doors were hard to open and lock. Overall I would recommend this house without hesitation.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for the good review. We are working on the door latch issues. They are hurricane latches and we have yet to find a service that can repair them so they work all the time. The purpose is to keep the doors from being forced open by storm winds. I am still trying to find a service to repair so we don't have to buy entirely new entry doors with a new latch system. We hope to have you all back next year.... Sincerely

Picture Perfect

  • 5 of 5

For my friends, and me, the location was fabulous. Hearing & seeing the ocean was our main intent, and the lovely home was the icing on the cake. The master bedroom is fabulous w it's own sitting area & fireplace. It was a great gathering spot for coffee, and watching the morning unfold.

Loved cooking in the kitchen, and the living area so comfy & inviting.

Thank you - several of my guests stated they'd be calling you next!!!

Beautiful house, beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

The house is spacious, comfortable and very nicely decorated and well maintained. The master bedroom suite is particularly attractive! The location is very quiet and remote, about six miles away from the town centre. It's a short walk to beautiful Madaket beach (it's important to use the public access path to the beach to avoid walking on the dunes). The last 1.4 miles to the house is an unpaved road.

Karen, the owner, was very helpful and responsive to any questions we had.

Beautiful and well kept home!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I really enjoyed everything about Love Sand. It's quietly nestled on the south west shore of the island in Madaket. We honeymooned in Nantucket and will go back to Madaket every year - the sunsets are fantastic (especially from the master suites porch!).

Karen is the property manager and she couldn't have been more pleasant or easy to deal with. We will absolutely try to get back to Love Sand next year!

Truly was a home away from home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at Love Sands to celebrate my 50th birthday. The home was immaculate and had every amenity you could think of. Clean linens, towels, beach towels, the shed was stocked with boogie boards, beach chairs and beach pails. My husband and I spent an entire day just sitting on the deck looking out into the ocean and caught upon our was just so relaxing, private and quiet. My children are no longer children (19 and 22 years old) absolutely loved the island and the house and the location. I do recommend renting a jeep because of the location of the house it is helpful to get to and from the house, but not a complete necessity.

The house sits back from the road and is surrounded by beautiful homes and friendly neighbors. We met 2 of the neighbors that own and are very friendly and answered any question we had about where to go, where to eat and where to explore.

The quiet dirt roads were perfect for the runners in the family and for our dogs that just loved the long walks.

We took advantage of the large and fully stocked kitchen to cook and also used the grill.

If there is one thing I wished the house would have had, would be a fenced in area just so the dogs could be turned out while we sat outside. However, that is such a minor issue compared to all the house had to offer.

Enjoy your stay and we are hoping to get back again next year.
