About Cathleen and Mark Farrell

We had dreamed for many years of owning a home on Nantucket. This is a dream come true!!

Cathleen first visited Nantucket 32 years ago, working there during the summers and Mark started coming to Nantucket 22 years ago. We were engaged on island in 1994, and have returned many summers as our family has grown. We have 3 children and look forward to enjoying our little piece of heaven!

Cathleen and Mark Farrell purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Cathleen and Mark Farrell chose Nantucket

We stayed in this cottage in the summer of 2012. It was just perfect, just enough space for our children ages 11-15 and us. It offered great outdoor space, short walk to the beach, and the amazing view at the end of our road over the harbor of town. We knew it had been a rental property for many years and thought it made sense for our family. So here we are feeling so blessed. Monomoy has always been a special spot as it is quiet and beautiful, with that amazing view of town, yet is so close to everything. We hope you love this property as much as we do.

What makes this cottage unique

Location, location, location. It's close to everything. yet far enough away to allow you to experience the hustle and bustle of downtown, and then get away to a peaceful little haven.

Summer Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this cottage with a couple friends for 2 months this summer and cannot say enough about the house! The owners have done a beautiful job decorating the cottage and even stocked the house with any sort of household item you would need (laundry detergent, Williams & Sonoma hand soap & lotion, paper towels, etc). This was a wonderful unexpected bonus. The house is perfect for a couple close friends or 2-3 couples. It's walking distance to a beautiful public "secret" beach as well as Lola Burger, Pi Pizza and The Green. There are bike paths in nearly every direction from the house, leading to all the best beaches on the island. I've been coming to Nantucket my whole life and never knew how much I would fall in love with Monomoy and the beautiful little cottage in Monomoy Village.

Highly recommend!

First Time on Nantucket

  • 4 of 5

We were on Nantucket for the first time to babysit for our granddaughter while our daughter and son-in-law attended a family wedding. We were very comfortable in this cottage. The location is very peaceful and quite pretty. There is a grocery store within walking distance. It's even a reasonable walk to the town center. The owners were accommodating and helpful, informing us of the option to rent baby equipment while on the island. For part of our stay we had six adults and the baby but still had more than enough room. Having two full bathrooms was very helpful. Overall we had a lovely visit.

Amazing Nantucket Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed at this charming house for 3 nights and absolutely loved it! The location was ideal - we were just a quick bike ride from town. The owner decorated the cottage so well - it is truly the quintessential beach house. I appreciated the little luxuries like the Williams Sonoma hand soap, plush towels and new kitchen utensils/dishes. I can't wait to go back!

a month by the sea

  • 4 of 5

I rented this cottage for the month of June and was very comfortable , despite cold and damp weather. The new owners were very accommodating, leaving a lovely bottle of wine and welcome note on the table when I arrived. I could tell they had been working hard to refurbish the cottage with new kitchen ware, and many thoughtful decorative interior touches.Any small issues were dealt with instantly. The owners left an array of useful items-garbage bags, plastic wrap, soda,laundry soap etc. making it so easy to spend the first day/night without having to run to the stop and Shop-which, by the way, is nice and close. In forty years, it was the closest to town I have ever lived, and I LOVED the convenience. Although the house has two full bedrooms and to baths, plus a sleeping loft, it is a small space overall- a word of warning for an overly generous hostess. Four adults total is max here. All in all, it was perfect for my needs as a writer on a month long get away.

Quintessential Nantucket Cottage! Loved It!

  • 5 of 5

I've been going to Nantucket many years and have rented homes and cottages in various parts of the Island. This cottage in Monomoy has a great location, outside of town but close enough for quick trip into the shops and restaurants. The cottage was neat and clean but had a rustic, authentic, comfy, cozy feel to it. Cathleen, the owner, was a joy to deal with and appears to have a long history with the Island and was great at making suggestions for restaurants etc....even though I am fairly familiar with the Island myself she appeared to be up to date on all the "goings on." I had a great time, thought the pricing was very reasonable, and plan on returning again and again.

Monomoy is a great area of the island that is close to town, close to beaches, but is also quiet and relaxing! This cottage is part of a group called Monomoy Village. While the owners are new for 2013, the cottage has been a favorite rental for many years.
