About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Nantucket is an Island of dreams and our family home has been ours. We would like to share our 3 bedroom 2 bath ranch home on a quiet residential street. The house has an open floor plan, is full of light, sleeps 6, has a large spacious kitchen, living room, and a private backyard deck that is the length of the house. Our island home is well equipped with beach chairs, beach towels, a few bikes, and wireless connectivity available for your use. Arrive at 12 Meadow View Drive ready to enjoy your Island vacation only needing your bathing suit and a few good books. The house is centrally located on the Island in the Hussey Farm area between town and the major beaches. Town is a 20 minute walk, a 10 minute stroll to the 'Old Mill', a 10 minute walk to the world famous Maria Mitchell Observatory, and the beaches are a 'bike ride' to Cisco, Surfside, or Ladies Beach. If you prefer, you can hop on the NRTA, the local shuttle bus system, to reach Madaket, Siasconset, or Main Street .

Enjoy our photographs and plan your summer beach vacation before the snows change to spring flowers.

To make this Nantucket vacation as easy as possible we have a caretaker in case of emergencies, and someone to clean upon your departure.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had an enjoyable long weekend in Nantucket. The communication to schedule and logistics details were excellent . The owners were flexible with dates, minimum stay, check in and check out time. I couldn't have asked for more. The house is spacious, clean and well equipped. They even left a bottle of wine to enjoy. The house is between the beach and town so an excellent location. I would highly recommend this rental. I hope to rent it again in the future.

Perfect House for Family Trip

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful house in a great location. Just a short drive to town and very close to surfside beach. It was perfect for myself and three kids. The large deck was great to sit and relax after long days at the beach, or to grill up dinner while enjoying the Nantucket sunset views. The owners were very accommodating and easy to reach throughout the trip if needed. The house had everything we could possibly need and we will definitely be returning for next years trip!

Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I stayed here for a week in June and had the absolute best time. Location was amazing, close to town and Cisco beach! On mornings we could talk a walk into town and in the afternoons we would borrow beach chairs to sit by the beaches. Plenty of room and a large, amazing deck to share dinner together! I would recommend this spot to anyone, and I can't wait to stay at this property again!

Great home in very convenient area!

  • 5 of 5

Myself and a few friends rented this home for an extended weekend trip in late June - and loved our stay! The home was very comfortable and clean and had everything we needed for our stay. The beds were all very comfortable and it was so nice to have two full baths. There is a great back porch that we sat on in the evenings to enjoy the beautiful weather. The home is very conveniently located - we utilized the bikes provided to make the short ride into town as well as to ride to both Cisco beach and Cisco brewery. I would definitely stay here again - and recommend to others!

Great house for families

  • 5 of 5

My family rented this property in late August. It lived up to everything that was described on the website. Great area for families. 3 mile bike ride to Cisco beach. Close to the bus route so the teenagers had independence to go into town on their own. Stop and Shop nearby. Would highly recommend this property.

Wonderful property in a centrally located area!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this property over the 4th of July weekend/week with a few friends/couples. We were pleasantly surprised as to the proximity of the house to key areas of the island and the accessibility to public transportation. The house was a few miles from the large Stop n Shop in one direction, a few miles to the downtown area, and a short ride to the beaches. The bus stop was located a 4 minutes walk from the house and the bike trails were easily accessible from the property. The nice part was that the owners allowed us usage of 3 bikes which was convenient and a great cost saving when staying a week on the island. The house was in a quiet, safe neighborhood with a large backyard with plenty of sitting area and a grill. The inside was well kept with 3 decent sized bedrooms and two bathrooms. the house felt spacious and modern enough that I would definitely consider staying again! Overall a great choice!

Stayed here twice! Fantastic both times. Perfect for families without a car.

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of five who have been coming to Nantucket every summer for over 25 years and have rented a wide variety of houses. We have rented this house twice, in July 2012 and July 2015, both times for two weeks. For us, this house is absolutely ideal, in size, but especially in location. We come from California so we don't have a car on the island and go everywhere on bikes. So, for us, the house's central location is ideal - i's an easy 5-minute ride to town, a ten minute ride to the main grocery store, and a 15 minute ride to our favorite beach at Cisco. If you're too tired to bike, it's a short 2-minute walk from the house to stops for two different Shuttle lines. Even though you're close to everything, the house is far enough out of town to have peace and quiet (and some truly wonderful stargazing) at night. The house has a nice open kitchen for cooking large family meals and we ate every meal out on the wonderful backyard deck. The master bedroom is large and comfortable with its own bath. Although we never took advantage of it, the two twin beds in the second bedroom are trundle beds so the house can accommodate a lot of people. There's a day bed in the third bedroom. Prior to our arrival and even while we were staying there, the owners were incredibly attentive, confirming our arrival time, making sure we had no problem moving in and who to contact if there was a problem (there wasn't), and then following up after we left
