About the property

2BR / 2BA - Sleeps 4

Beautifully renovated apartment with modern conveniences and decorated tastefully with period furniture, antiques and original artwork, oriental and hooked rugs and designer lighting. Comfortably furnished, spacious living areas and roomy bedrooms. Luxurious linens, central air-conditioning, flat screen with cable, wireless internet access, music system, and washer-dryer complete your perfect in-town accommodation.

Located on the storied “Petticoat Row” in the historic town of Nantucket, this apartment is a quiet enclave on the top floor of a fully restored historic building. It has a private entrance and use of a rear patio.

You can walk to Nantucket’s premier restaurants, its museums, first-class shopping, art galleries, theaters, and the harbor for boat and fishing charters. Easy access to bike rentals, public bus transportation and car rentals.

The apartment is equipped with a gourmet kitchen with marble counter tops and top of the line appliances and a dining area, a master suite with a walk in closet and divine master bath and a guest room with an additional modern bath. The living area is full of light with special views of the town.

As soon as you enter you will realize this apartment is a special place. The view from each window gives you another perspective of the preserved town -- cobblestone streets, historic homes, widow's walks, flower boxes, and at night, the soft glow of old fashioned street lamps.

About John McDermott

My wife & I are retired bankers who are currently real estate developers with homes in NY, NJ, Nantucket, Oregon & Florida.

John McDermott purchased this apartment in 2009

Why John McDermott chose Nantucket

We developed a mixed-use commercial and residential property to the highest standards. After a year-long gut renovation of the entire building, we have enjoyed having friends and guests stay at our Historic Downtown Nantucket upper floor apartment. With restaurants, shops and services within steps of the front door, we offer the ultimate in convenience, comfort, luxury and relaxation.

What makes this apartment unique

Darya's Salon & Zero Main at Centre St. are right in the building. At Darya's you can have beauty treatments including hair, nails & massage. At Zero Main, you can shop for dresses, jewelry, shoes and more!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks so much for a wonderful place to stay in Nantucket! We've tried B&B's and small hotels in the past, but the proximity to town & the shuttles to the beaches can't be beat. You have a beautiful home on the island and we are happy to have had a chance to enjoy it too!

In Town-Beautifully Restored & Decorated Private Flat
average rating of 5.0 based on 8 reviews

Beautiful flat in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

Just as in the pictures online, the flat is drop dead gorgeous and fantastically equipped from the rainfall shower heads and beach equipment, to the top of the line appliances. Though it was only steps to the many good restaurants we visited, we totally enjoyed preparing meals on a number of occasions. We could walk to the Stop & Shop, and to the Bartlett Farm stand right on Main Street for great corn and tomatoes. Unfortunately, the flat is also, as my wife quickly discovered, in the midst of a number of fine shops. I hope the bills do not come too quickly

We whole- heartedly recommend Centerpiece Suite to all, but please leave time for us next year!

This is a great rental for all. In the middle of great shops and restaurants

You could not do better!

  • 5 of 5

If you love to be "in the middle of the action", this is the perfect place for you. And, yet it is remarkably quiet and restful. The owners have thought of every detail to make this very beautiful apartment comfortable and accommodating. I recommend it with only one reservation which is I fear it may become so popular and well-known that I won't be able to book it again! The Centrepiece Suite exceeded my expectations in every way. I know you will love it - it's a great way to enjoy all that Nantucket has to offer.

Nantucket- in town luxury

  • 5 of 5

This lovely flat in town exceeded our expectations in every way! Beautifully decorated & with all of the conveniences of home and then some. The owners so graciously provided wine, coffee, milk & fruit upon arrival- thank you! We enjoyed having a fully stocked kitchen for light meals, the washer/dryer and beach chairs, umbrella, towels & cooler were a plus. Walk to everything in town was a great convenience. Don't miss breakfast at Black-eyed Susans around the corner. Will definitely return & rent again!

A great place in a great location

  • 5 of 5

A great apartment in a great location. Close to everything, but not noisy. The apartment had everything we needed and more. All you have to pack is your clothing. Beach chairs, cooler and towels were provided. It was beautifully decorated. John, the owner could not have been any more helpful with our arrival. I would highly recommend this place for a great getaway to Nantucket. We will be back.

Wonderful Stay! Love it!

  • 5 of 5

I rented the flat with 3 friends to attend the Wine Festival. From beginning to end everything was amazing. The owners were so kind and friendly. They picked us up from & returned us to the ferry with our luggage. The Flat was like a luxury hotel. All high quality linens & pressed sheet on the beds. The beautiful decor of the Flat made us want to live there forever. In addition, the owners provided very nice details like 2 bottles of wine, milk for our coffee & fruit. The location in town was perfect, right in the center of all we wanted to do. Thank you Victoria & John. We hope to return again.

Special Place

  • 5 of 5

Wow. We wished it was ours. It felt like the perfect Nantucket getaway. Just as advertised in the heart of town. This apartment has the amenities of a five start hotel, is even prettier than the pictures and has a location that can't be beat. We'll be back.
