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.

Incredible Beach Front Madaket Gem!

  • 5 of 5

I just returned from a week at Love Sand with my family and absolutely LOVED IT! It is a magical home in an amazing beach front location - views of the ocean from 3 of the 4 sides of the house. Great for kids, Incredible privacy. Well appointed and beautifully decorated, with fresh linens and beach towels for your use. Very accurately portrayed. Very clean upon arrival. I highly recommend it. Karen, the manager, was a joy to deal with. A 10 minute beach walk in the morning to Millie's for coffee and muffins. Incredible sunsets from your decks. I can't wait to return next year.

Of Note - The beach has had some erosion in the past few years so it has a few steps down a small set of stairs to access the beach - which may be an issue to older renters.

An Island Treasure

  • 5 of 5

To say that we enjoyed our visit to Love Sand would be a gross understatement. The seclusion and view was just what we had hoped for and the home was beautifully appointed and well-suited for our needs. Amenities are abundant and proximity to the beach and ocean made it ideal for rest and relaxation. Though the property is already rented next year during the week we enjoyed this year, it will remain high on our list of locations to keep in mind for future visits to Nantucket. We couldn't have been made happier and Karen (our property manager representative) went above and beyond to make sure our stay was extra-special...mission accomplished!

Thank you again with our very best!
