We want to go bACK!

  • 5 of 5

My family rented and stayed in the Gaol Break home this July (2016) and had a magnificent stay. The home has such a cozy HOME feeling and does not feel at all like a rental property. Extremely spacious house and the open kitchen/floor plan was great for morning gatherings for breakfast before starting our days. A very short walk into town. We walked to Jettie's beach which is do-able if you do not have a lot of stuff. Love the history of the place and the accessibility to the bike path. Highly recommend this home and we are definitely going to be coming back to ACK next Summer!

Memories Made Here

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect island location, it is close to both town and country lanes. Here you are right around the corner from historic sites--the old jail and Maria Mitchell's House (an early astronomer who discovered a comet). Just down the street is the town Civil War Monument. The house is perfect for families, girls or guys weekends. There are two independent levels, so the kids could be down stairs and adults above. Very well equipped kitchen, so cooking meals is easy and fun. Big dining table next to a wall of windows, perfect for family memories! It is a very easy house to immediately relax in and enjoy--lots of natural light, comfy seating, everything you need. It is also a restored 200 year old house and the owners have incorporated the original beams and doors into the design of the interior-beautiful. Being on Nantucket is like stepping back in time. Gaol Break is the perfect place to relax and enjoy this magical place.

Gaol Break

  • 5 of 5

The 4 beedroom, 3 1/2 bath home was perfect for four golfers on a long weekend. The home was beautifully appointed with upgrades and decorated with local memorabilia. Everything worked very well. The kitchen was complete. Plenty of everything. Logistics from the owner was perfect. Would definitely recommend to others. We plan to return next year.

Your quintessential Nantucket home and for that reason it was absolutely PERFECT.

  • 5 of 5

I had the pleasure of staying at Gaol Break Cottage for a girls trip in Nantucket this past weekend. We loved so much of what this house had to offer: a quick to respond (and accommodating) owner, BEAUTIFUL decor, spacious layout, and quiet street with a close proximity to town. Everything we could need for cooking and relaxing were included, making it that much easier to relax and enjoy the Island. I am already trying to think of my next reason to return for a stay. This would be ideal for a girls getaway, couples trip, family vacation, plus so much more. Look no further than this home, you will not be disappointed!

Beautiful home. You won't want to leave

  • 5 of 5

Just a short walk into town, in a lovely neighborhood. What a beautiful home! Everything is up to date and decorated in a beachy/nautical theme. You will feel so comfortable that you won't want to leave. Many private rooms which is perfect for traveling couples/families. Each shower is new with 2 shower heads with perfect water pressure. There is a kitchen for entertaining the group or cooking. 2 indoor seating areas to eat and an outdoor table. The house has Wi-Fi, cable and a Wii if you get stuck in on a rainy day.

We have stayed at few houses on the island and this has been the most clean and well maintained. Teri was a pleasure to work with and made the rental process very easy. I look forward to stay here again.
