About the property

4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathroom, 9 Sleeps

Tucked away down a sandy lane is a charming two story beach cottage with a bright clam shell drive. Located in Pocomo, this is one of the most secluded and private areas on Nantucket Island. The house is a classic cape cod style cottage, with four bedrooms and two full bathrooms, plus an enclosed outdoor shower. With one queen, two double beds and three twins, the house accommodates up to nine guests. Bright, large and modern kitchen with a gas stove, dining room with vaulted ceiling and windows on three sides which look out onto the moors. A large deck wraps around the front and side of the house perfect for viewing stunning Nantucket sunsets. A short walk will take you to Pocomo Point, one of the most secluded beaches on the island as well as a world class windsurfing and kiteboarding destination. On the harbor side, gentle ocean waves are perfect for children. Close to Quidnet and Sconset, and Great Point beaches, and an easy drive or bike ride into town. This is a great house for families, very private, tons of board games and puzzles, as well as high speed WiFi. You won't want to leave.

A short walk to Harbor beaches and scenic Pocomo Point there is plenty to fill your vacation within walking distance. Toppers at Wauwinet - Nantucket's most exclusive restaurant - is short distance away. Nantucket's historic town is only a 15 Minute drive from 28 Pocomo and a stop on the bus route that circles the island is within easy walking distance.

Our Stay at 28 Pocomo

  • 4 of 5

Owner responsiveness: The owner responded promptly to questions and gave many helpful details.

Location: The house was secluded and quiet; the only sounds we heard were those of the construction crew building a new house next door, but this was minimal. There was a beach at a convenient short walk from the house. The bus stop was about 1 1/2 miles away, so we recommend bringing a car or bicycles to the island. We were happy to discover that the busses can carry 2 bikes, so if you ride to the bus stop, you can take them into town with you on the bus, and back again.

Pleasant characteristics: There was a nice, roomy outdoor shower that some people liked to use, and the partly wrap-around deck was comfortable and a pleasant place to enjoy morning breezes or the star-filled night sky. There is a selection of board games at the house and we enjoyed playing the word game, Apples to Apples. There is Wi-Fi at the house and no TV, but we did not miss it.

Appliances: There is an AG washing machine requiring the appropriate soap, and a clothes dryer. In the absence of the special soap, we were careful to use a small amount of regular detergent. There is a drip coffee maker and microwave. The stove and oven are gas and you need to carefully push in the knobs as you turn them.

Beds: The two upstairs bedrooms are larger than the two downstairs. Upstairs you will find 3 single beds in one room, and a double and a single in the other. One downstairs bedroom has a double bed and the other a queen. So, be prepared for smaller beds than you probably have at home.

Negatives: The only drawbacks were related to the cleaning service, which we felt could have done a better job preparing for new renters. They had left the washer tightly stuffed with clothes which had caused it to leak and we found a puddle on the floor when we arrived. Some areas of the house needed dusting and the kitchen floor needed a good cleaning. There were old stuffed animals on one of the upstairs beds that we felt should have been packed away (or discarded) when renters are in the house. Having said all this, these cleaning-related issues were not viewed as big problems by our group of friends.

Overall experience: We enjoyed our stay in this cozy secluded house. As mentioned above, renters should come prepared to deal with the distance of the house from the bus stop and from downtown Nantucket. Bicycles or a car are a necessity unless you are especially fond of very long walks.
