Transportation on the island: As seen in many of our reviews, the cottage is so conveniently located that a car is not necessary. However, if you choose to bring your vehicle you must make a reservation at the Steamship Authority well in advance to ensure space is available during the week of your visit. Due to the limited availability on the car ferry, the island offers several options for bicycles, moped and car rentals. Additionally the NRTA Island Shuttle goes almost everywhere on the island for only $2.00per person each way. The closest NRTA stop is just a few hundred yards down the road. The shuttle runs on a regular schedule, approximately every 20 minutes. For more information on car, bike and moped rentals please feel free to call or email us!
Dining on the island: Nantucket is an island of the culinary arts! There are countless restaruants to choose from. The cottage comes with a guide to all the hot spots on the island. Keep in mind, being an island, Nantucket offers some of the best seafood in the world! If seafood is not your preference, there are many other establishments that you will certainly enjoy!
Best of all, dining on the island is comprable in cost to dining on the mainland. While many may think that as an island, prices would be much higher, they are in fact not! They are comparable to prices in most metropolitan areas. There are plenty of family friendly establishments that are perfect for families with little ones. There are plenty of sports venues for the sports enthusiast and for those couples trying to escape it all... there is no place with more intimate, more romantic restaraunts than on the island of Nantucket!

Charming home in a great mid-island location
Charming home in a great mid-island location
My family of four (two adults and two kids, ages 2 and 4) stayed at this darling cottage this past summer. It was our second trip to the island, first stay at this home. The house is as described: nicely furnished and appointed, well-maintained and clean. It had everything we needed: pack-n-play for our little guy; booster seats for both kids; some toys and books for the kids; beach chairs and a grill. The mid-island location was perfect for reaching the spots we frequent most: Sesachacha Pond, Jetties, Sankaty Light, and town. The bike paths make it walkable to the Stop-n-Shop and Lola Burger. Andrew, the owner, is fantastic. He was easy to work with, responsive and a good resource for restaurants and activities on the island. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to family and friends.

**BACKDROP FOR A PERFECT NANTUCKET VACATION**
**BACKDROP FOR A PERFECT NANTUCKET VACATION**
Where to begin.....we got very lucky and managed to book a week at this cottage due to a cancellation. Otherwise the cottage is always rented for the entire summer! It was our first visit to Nantucket...we have always vacationed in Chatham, and were looking for something a little different.This house was perfect for our family of two adults and four children ages 7-14. The location was perfect , close to everything! Monomoy beach is just a short walk to the beach access, although we often hopped in the car for a quick drive to Surfside where the kids rode huge waves for hours each day! We ran every morning on the bike path just across the street, had coffee on the peaceful back deck while the kids played in the yard. The cottage is in a small U shaped cul de sac off the main road, so we never had to worry about traffic or the kids being safe, and there was plenty of room to spread out. The furnishings in the home were great, comfortable beds, seating at dining table, plenty of outdoor seating. Two full baths enabled us to get everyone showered and ready to go easily. The laundry in the master bath was such a nice and convenient bonus! When we arrived at the house it was clean, and loaded with EVERYTHING you could possibly need. The owner even supplies basic cleaning products and paper products, which was convenient, and replenished before we left. I could have cooked all of our meals right there with a fully stocked kitchen and a two minute drive to Stop and Shop ( pharmacy, Downylake (yum).....BUT there are too many great places to see and eat that we didn't have time to cook! We did pick up a birthday cake at nantucket bakery that was awesome and celebrated one of the kids birthdays! There were beach chairs, sand toys, boogie boards...although we did buy 4 and leave them at the cottage ~ Andrew the owner of the house was such a pleasure to work with, offered many suggestions and ideas to make our trip wonderful. It is the kind of place you walk into and feel right at home. As we told Andrew, the hardest part of our entire summer........was LEAVING!! Can't wait to return......oh , and one week is not nearly long enough!!!

Owner response: We are so thrilled that you enjoyed your stay and that you wiill return in the future! You are absolutely correct that one week is just not enough. While it is certainly enough time to unwind and disconnect it leaves you longing for more... It is truly our hope that our guests will treat our cottage as their summer home and that they will return year after year. Each year staying a little longer than the year prior and each year adding to the lasting memories of family vacations spent on Nantucket. Thanks for choosing our home we look forward to many future returns.
This was our first trip to Nantucket and while we were not familiar with the lay of the land so to speak, we could not have found a more conveniently located rental on the island. You are just a quick trip to the Stop n Shop, local restaurants and private secluded beaches. The house is perfectly appointed- very well maintained and sweetly decorated, and for us especially, well stocked with everything we could need for traveling with a toddler: a pack and play, booster seat, and even some toys and books are available for renter use. We made the mistake of packing our own toys, and of course, they were never used! Add on the washer and dryer, this was one of the most relaxing trips we have had as a family. Since we were traveling with a small child, we took advantage of the fully stocked kitchen every evening, including of course, the dishwasher! On the couple of evenings we chose not to cook, we perused the menus left by the owners and ordered terrific take-out pizza from the local pizzeria- right down the street- Pi Pizza. Very good! We were able to take advantage of the amenities offered by the rental as well: the great deck and grill, the electronics (we rented some DVDs from the Redbox at the Stop N Shop), and of course the prime location. Thank you to Andrew for such a great experience! We really enjoyed working with you- our communications were quick and friendly, and any questions were promptly answered if not already addressed. It is no wonder your rental is in demand!

Perfect Nantucket Rental!
Perfect Nantucket Rental!
I stayed at the cottage earlier this year with my wife, daughter, and two friends. let me start by saying we had a great time! The owner was easy to work with and very responsive. The cottage was clean, cozy, and kid-friendly. The owners left a lot of toys that my daughter could play with. The cottage is in a great location - it's close to the town center. With a bike, you could get anywhere in town within minutes. Also, the porch is quite nice and the backyard has a fire pit which was fun to use during the evenings. We will def. stay here again on our next trip back to nantucket!

Another Glorius Stay
We are having a blast! The only thing you really need are a few cutting boards - I looked everywhere and couldn't find one. The beds are really comfy and I love the layout of the house. We got tandem bikes and have been using the NRTA shuttle, which has been great. Another glorious stay! It's been great -

This cottage is even more charming than it's on-line photos and as we walked through the door it felt like home. It is very nicely furnished, comfortable, well supplied and very clean. Our days were spent biking out to all points of the island or exploring the village on foot and we found the cottage perfectly situated. And while we did not have a car we had no trouble shopping for groceries or enjoying nearby restaurants. The owner was a pleasure to work with from start to finish, and made more than the necessary effort to make sure we enjoyed our stay both at his home and on the island.

Owner response: Thank you for your kind review. We were so thrilled to have you in our home. You got our 2010 season off to a great start. As you know, we strive to provide the best experience possible with the hopes that our guests will return year after year. Thank you for considering our home for your vacation. We are thrilled that you loved it as much as we do. Please keep us mind for the future.
This is a very quaint & charming cottage, well appointed, and very comfortable. After 20 years of experience renting various vacation homes, we can definitely say this is an ideal rental property... from the cleanliness, to the decorating, and the amenities, right down to the linens. The owners haven't overlooked a thing! It is centrally located near town, near beaches and is just across the road from the bike path. This cottage definitely contributed to our wonderful Nantucket vacation!

WONDERFUL NANTUCKET COTTAGE
WONDERFUL NANTUCKET COTTAGE
Very clean, organized and well decorated Nantucket cottage. Owner always promptly replied to my questions/concerns and was generally very helpful and thoughtful. This well stocked house was perfect for our family of 4. Bedrooms are located on opposite sides of the house, each with their own newly redone bathrooms. Being centrally located near the rotary meant it was very easy to get almost anywhere on the island. Found it helpful to be a very quick drive to the grocery, liquor, pharmacy and post office. We enjoyed nearby Pi Pizzeria - awesome pizza. Great biking and running paths nearby. Young's Bike Shop delivered bikes right to the house. Spent a few nights enjoying the wonderful deck, grill, and fire pit. I would absolutely recommend this property to others!

Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: We fell in love with Nantucket on our very first visit back in 2007. After spending only 14 days on the island, we were hooked. We bought in the fall of that year, did major renovations over the winter and haven't looked back. One of our favorite things to do, whether its on the beach or strolling the cobble stones of Main Street is to look back on all the fantastic times our family has already had in our cottage and to dream about the what is certain to be a fantastic future on Nantucket! Our son and daughter, 7 and 3 years of age already agree that a little bit of Heaven can be found on Nantucket! It is truly our hope that you'll be bitten by the Nantucket Bug as well and that you'll consider our cottage your summer home for years to come. Most of our renters repeat year after year. We would love to add you to that list!
Why the Owner Chose Monomoy:
This cottage is all that Nantucket Cottages are meant to be. It offers the charm of years gone by, yet is furnished for the most sophisticated guests. While it is our cottage, it is our goal that you feel right at home from the moment you walk through the door. Therefore, we provide all of the amenitites that we enjoy while we use the home. What's ours is your's so enjoy! Aside from an outstanding location, you will have the pleasure of an attentive owner. You'll see in our reviews that we'll be in constant communication leading up to your stay and should you have any questions while your on the island, we're only a phone call away. Add to all of this a beach that is close enough to walk to, central air conditioning and a setting that is second to none and this cottage is certain to please!
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We purchased this property because it offered all that we hoped for in a Nantucket Cottage. It has the charm only found in old Nantucket Homes. It is within a mile to Main Street and you can walk to the beach. Add the shell drive and village setting amongst 7 other similar cottages, and our breath was taken away. We hope that you'll experience Nantucket the same way our family has for the past 5 years and will for many more years to come. While you have several homes to choose from, we're certain, and 5 summers of renters are certain, that you can't go wrong with this cottage. Read our renter reviews for more insights and give us a call when your ready to discuss your next island vacation.
