Why Jared Geller chose Nantucket

We have both been vacationing on Nantucket throughout our whole lives and have each spent years on the island as year-round residents. We absolutely love being near the ocean, and who could resist the quaint feel of the cobblestoned streets and historic downtown.

Perfect Weekend

  • 5 of 5

I was in Nantucket for a wedding and stayed at this beautiful home with friends. The location is perfect, really close to town, we walked everyday. The house was very clean when we arrived and felt right home the whole weekend. I highly recommend to anyone visiting Nantucket to stay in this house you wont regret it!

Excellent Spot

  • 5 of 5

We had a great weekend on Nantucket staying at Main St. It was extremely convenient to be able to walk downtown and to have outdoor space. The kitchen was clean and open, perfect to prepare breakfast and dinner. The owners were great to work with!

Charmer in town

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful cottage that is walking distance down Main Street to town. Nice to have private parking spots right in front of home. Situated near bike paths. We rented bikes and went out to the beach in Madaket one day and Cisco Brewers another. We used the grill in the backyard a few times. The owner is very quick to respond to inquiries and was a pleasure to communicate with. A highlight was sitting out on the front deck in adirondack chairs at the end of the day and watching the stars as we talked about our day. A great vacation!

Cozy Cottage with Easy Accessability to Town & the Madaket Rd Bike Path

  • 4 of 5

Cozy cottage, simple, adequate Pottery-Barnish decor. Lovely, spacious downstairs newly remodeled bathroom. Upstairs bath a surprise --- tiny wall hung sink, old fashioned tub/shower with wrap-around curtain. Two upstairs bedrooms very small -- no closet in one, no dresser or chest in the other. Small but adequate window ac units. Nice cross breeze in downstairs with windows, front and back doors open.

Owner very responsive and communicative. Excellent information provided to begin our stay. However, arrived and WiFi not working. As this was a working vacation, we spent anxious hours trying to connect with the island caretaker to remedy the problem. Finally, the next day, we did reach him and he advised us to unplug the modem, wait and replug. Presto, all was fine and worked well during the entire week.

My husband and I were in one bedroom, my mother in the other and my adult daughter on the sofa downstairs. Not the best arrangement for privacy or sleeping in. Would highly recommend this cottage for a couple or parents and young children, but older children might not like the sleeping accommodations downstairs. Definitely would not recommend for two couples at all!

Great location. Easy 1/2 mile walk into and out of town. My 85 year old mother did the walk with ease, often twice a day. We rented bikes for the week from the Nantucket Bike Shop which delivers and picks up for no extra fee if you spend more than $150. The house had bikes and helmets but not in the best condition. Rented bikes (with helmet & lock) were excellent.

Kitchen more than adequate but no lobster pot. Restaurants where we ate, all excellent: Straight Wharf; Corazon del Mar; Oran Mor; Proprietors Bar & Table; Ventuno; Languedoc and the Nantucket Lobster Trap for ordering pre-cooked Lobster dinners.

Would definitely return to this cozy cottage, even with my mother, but would not want anyone sleeping downstairs in the living room again. We were charmed by its sweet front porch, a blooming garden and a super location for easy access into town. Did not need or miss a car. The shuttle bus service in town was more than adequate to travel further afield. Awesome vacation, one of the best we've ever taken!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the extremely thorough review and your kind comments about our cottage! It is small, but it is cozy, it is classic Nantucket, and it is certainly situated within easy walking distance of downtown. We agree that the living space is best enjoyed by a small family or by one or two couples. The listing is correct in advertising a queen-sized bed in each of the two upstairs bedrooms. If it isn't clear that the pull out sofa is in the downstairs living area, we will emphasize that point in revisions to the listing. We will also add square footage estimates to offer additional perspective. We are aware of the storage limitations in the upstairs bedrooms, and while the arrangements are typically adequate for guests staying only one or two weeks, we are considering the addition of another bureau. Kudos are definitely in order to our outstanding caretaker, who is extremely responsive to the needs and requests of our guests! In our experience, most renters on vacation appreciate the convenience of precooked lobsters that can be picked up or delivered by The Lobster Trap (nantucketlobstertrap.com/). As such, the kitchen is not equipped with a lobster pot. The bikes and helmets at the cottage are not for use by renters and the listing does not advertise the availability of bicycles or helmets. If you are looking to rent bicycles and gear, we recommend Nantucket Bike Shop (nantucketbikeshop.com/) and Young's Bicycle Shop (youngsbicycleshop.com/). Both are reputable companies that have been in business on the island for decades. Thank you again for all of the feedback. We are so happy you enjoyed your stay!
