*Rates are initial season special discounted rates for 2013 season. Please write for current rates. Rates subject to change without notice. Rates are not final until a standard lease is agreed upon, signed, and executed with described payment terms, etc. Security deposit is not included in rent. Typically takes the cleaners / staff a couple weeks to get us their check out reports, can take longer is they're swamped to catch up on paperwork of houses need extra cleaning, have damage, etc. Just depends on how things are left and how busy they are. If renters clean the house and leave it nice usually takes the cleaners 8-10 hours to make it truly ready for the next group as it's a large home. If renters don't clean takes longer. A professional 3rd party cleaning company does the cleaning and they're meticulous to make sure our renters arrive to have a great first impression of the home. :) Please plan accordingly and pre-book/pre-pay for discounted cleaning rates in addition to the minimum charge we start with up front and the time needed for cleaning and budget for extra time to clean it as we don't include cleaning in our rent to keep it fair to everyone (those who clean well ahead of time get a smaller bill, those who don't get one for over the usual 8-10 hours). We usually travel during the week for work and will try to cut back a deposit return the weekend after we get their reports when we're home. Keep it simple. :) We're also not a full time agency, just homeowners with other full time jobs who rent out the house out ourselves at a discount to keep charges down for everyone. Thanks for considering our property! :)
Our standard lease must be signed by two co-signers and executed with 24 hours of booking (if not same day and prior to using house) with all payments processed and cleared before Tenants/Renters will be allowed on premises / in the house. Failure to do so will result in all monies paid by Tenant / Renter being forfeit as we cannot allow anyone to use the house without a lease and all payments clearing to protect ourselves and our tenants / renters. If you have questions on the lease please review it prior to booking as a request to book and booking through this site is final, there are no refunds as we're not a hotel that can quickly and easily rebook something etc. Check in 5pm, out 10:30am. A SECURITY DEPOSIT IS REQUIRED, you must select that option not the insurance homeaway offers as we do not accept it even though they force that offering as we cannot turn that offering off.
***DO NOT CALL TO SOLICIT BUSINESS OR SERVICES, ONLY USE PHONE NUMBER FOR RENTING PROPERTY. Thank you. Was getting annoying telemarketing calls so had to put that in there. Sorry to my potential renters who had to read that. :) If you're still reading, yes that's me with the lions in South Africa at a rescue I volunteered at, now have a yellow lab, she doesn't eat as much or think I'm lunch, always a bonus.

Bought this house in 2010 and renovated / upgraded it in 2012 and beginning of 2013. I live in Boston but spend time during the different seasons either on Nantucket, NYC, or VT.
Owner purchased this House in 2010
Why Owner chose Nantucket Town
Perfect location, open floor layout, and ability to have multiple families in it is why I bought the house. It's in town and close to the best night life and restaurants, island breeze, shaded area for a couple hammocks, grocery store and liquor store right nearby too. Also on the bus line to go to the beach and elsewhere. Plus I've always wanted a place on Nantucket as the island is just fantastic.
What makes this House unique
Location, location, location. Harbor is about 3 blocks away. Close to everything in town, you and your friends won't get lost trying to find it. Couple of hammocks, very beachy feel. We want everyone to have a good nights sleep in a comfortable bed. Instead of the thin cheap mattresses our trundle beds have normal large mattresses on them, just like the rest of our beds. To accommodate their height we raised the beds so everyone has a nice comfortable mattress to sleep on. :) Private deck on 2nd floor off the master bedroom, French doors upstairs and main level for island breezes. Beach bus / town bus goes right by the house. Walking distance to town / Main Street restaurants, shops, bars, pharmacy, Chicken Box, and grocery stores. Close to everything! :)

A Great Memorial Day Weekend!
This was our second time renting this house for Memorial Day Weekend and it exceeded expectations once again! We had a group of 20 and there was more than enough room for everyone to sleep comfortably. The house has a lovely backyard with plenty of space to sit and hold outdoor activities. One thing we all love about this rental home is the location. It is only a short walk to the town center which allowed us to check out the local restaurants and shops without the hassle of finding a ride. We all look forward to returning to the island again very soon!
Great spot, great home!
This house is a quick walk to town and was perfect for our group. 6 families all with young children (infant to 4 yrs). The common area served our group perfectly. We never once felt like we were running into each other. We hung both inside and outside with our group grilling and eating mostly at home b/c of our children's bed-time. The house is equipped with plenty of bath & beach towels, beach chairs so leave these extra items at home! Bill was very accommodating & responsive when it came to reaching out to him while we were there with questions. When it came to check out our group striped all the beds, ran loads of laundry and re-made all the beds to keep the cleaning cost down. We will be back next year!
A Memorable Two Weeks
A beautiful, accommodating, spacious house that delivered more than expected. Our group was 18 people at a peak for 3 nights and averaged 12 for another 5. The remainder was no more than 6. The entire time we never felt crushed nor cramped. Having all of use around the dining room table for dinner was special. The living room and kitchen area more than provided for our needs. We ended up eating in more than out. The location is super. Short walks into town and simple bike rides to the beach. Also great location to get out to Miacomet Golf Club for several rounds. The backyard was perfect for games, lounging and we even had a catered lobster/clam bake that provided more than enough space using both picnic tables. All bedrooms provided more than sufficient sleeping quarters and the bathrooms are spacious, clean and modern. The house is a must stay for your Nantucket vacation.
Nice House, Difficult Owner
It sounds like we had a similar experience to the renter below who gave the house 2 stars. Please notice how many of his 5 star reviews on here are from the day after a person had departed (& before they got their security back) or where he had multiple people write reviews for the same stay (5 reviews for the same Christmas Stroll in 2013). The house is really nice and it would rate a 5 however the dealings with the owner, Bill were a complete headache.
*He also asked us to draw our check out of a particular bank and overnight it.
*He gave us a discounted rate (thanksgiving time) but then requested a security deposit of more than 50% which was significant. When I questioned him about this he said it was the cost to replace the large sectional in the living area and that people often walked away from smaller security deposits. This raised a red flag for me but I hoped for the best.
*The lease had a check in time of 5pm. He said if we wanted to check in at 3pm when our ferry arrived, he would have to add another 1/2 day to our rental costs. When I indicated that we would pass he said he would allow us to checkin at 3pm if we wrote him a "glowing review" the day we checked out.
*I did a thorough cleaning of the whole house even though we did not use the whole home because the owner let us bring our dog . I appreciate that so I am obsessed with leaving homes we stay at in better condition than they were when we arrived. He stated that the cleaning people said we left the place in "nice shape" but that it took them 7 hours to clean it properly because the tubs and toilets had hair on them (I cleaned the jets of the tub even though we only showered and they appeared to have not been cleaned in awhile).
He kept asking for my glowing review before he would return my deposit. I told him that I do take the time to write reviews but only do so once the transaction is complete. He kept trying to negotiate with me over the cleaning fees as if he were giving me a break when these charges were not valid. Eventually after much back and forth he finally sent my deposit less a few hundred dollars which is his minimum cleaning fee. This guy acts like he is going you a big favor. The sad part is the place is really nice and would be great for multiple families, bigger groups and if he just gave people their deposits back and acted reasonably he would get good reviews but instead he withheld our deposit for a "glowing review" and in attempt to keep some money.
• It’s unfortunate Kim feels this way as we went above and beyond for her family. She loved the house and seemed us too until she got her cleaning bill. She’s mad about the 3rd party cleaning bill and taking it out on us. She shouldn’t have been surprised as it’s all disclosed on the web page, and later emails and lease. It takes what it takes to professionally clean and prep our big home, please don’t be mad at us for what it takes to make house truly ready for next group. Here are the facts below so you can decide if we did everything with excellent customer service. Thanks for reading! :)
• Professional 3rd party cleaning company is a well known and reputable.
• No surprises - web page states security deposit amount and our home takes cleaning co. 7-8 hours to clean when home is left “ready/nice” for next group (she left the house nice but didn’t scrub toilets inside and out, etc. as most people don’t). Please budget for the professional cleaning of 7-8 hours if left nice.
• A renter had trouble leaving a review, they ended up leaving multiple, homeway knows about it but left them up, and looks like 1 or 2 people left review at check out (unchanged and all very positive).
• To SAVE RENTERS HUNDREDS of $ off vrbo electronic payment option we accept overnighted check instead.
• She couldn’t afford the rent, in the spirit of the holidays we gave her a deep discount and they agreed in return IF they liked the house they’d leave a glowing review at checkout (win win, we all signed lease). Weeks later she asked to arrive early but didn’t want to pay normal charge to come in a half day earlier. We proactively asked cleaners to come early without usual extra charge and we left house early to help accommodate Kim for FREE provided she kept her word and left a review upon check out. She again agreed to do that.
• After her stay she didn’t leave review. She didn’t want to pay for her cleaning even though it was just as stated on the web page and charges as described on the the lease. We discounted it to help her yet again. She promised again to leave great review for all we’d done and didn’t, instead you see what was written. Such a shame after all we did for Kim’s family. We went above and beyond several times and kept our word. It’s unfortunate and discouraging this is what we get when we tried to help a family for the holidays. Hopefully you agree we went above and beyond for this family. Thanks for reading and please have an excellent day! :)
Beautiful home and yard for a great weekend in Nantucket!
We stayed at 8 Atlantic Ave for Memorial Day Weekend, 2016. The house was gorgeous, with the top of the line accommodations. The back yard was perfect for relaxing. Additionally, we were able to walk to all of the prime spots that we hoped to venture to once on the island. Bill was a pleasure to speak with, and we would return to this home in a heart beat. Thank you so much for an amazing weekend! We enjoyed ourselves immensely.
Thanks so much for such nice comments Kelly, very happy you had fun! :)
Beautiful home on Nantucket !
We stayed at 8 Atlantic Avenue for the Daffodil Festival weekend. The home is impeccable and beautiful - spacious with gorgeous hardwood floors and a kitchen meant for entertaining. Close to town for shopping and restaurants. Owners were a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend this property! We loved every aspect of our stay and will definitely rent there again.
