We bought this home in the Fall of 2012 and immediately began renovating. Pretty much everything is NEW! Our guests will enjoy a beautiful outdoor shower and central air conditioning upon their return from the beach or sight-seeing!
The bright and spacious custom kitchen opens to both the living and dining spaces - both designed for gathering and entertaining. A huge new deck with Weber gas grill and dining for eight is located off the kitchen. For those rainy days and cozy nights, the family room has a brandy-new 55' smart HDTV and BluRay/DVD player. There is a 40' HDTV in the loft. Wireless internet is available for those who just can't disconnect.
Two bedrooms are also located on the first floor - the master with a king bed, TV and adjoining full bath; and a queen with an adjoining full bath. Upstairs boasts a loft for reading or watching TV, as well as a queen bedroom and a twin (2) bedroom that share a full bath.
Enjoy the peace and quiet of Madaket - much of this part of the island is protected by the Nantucket Land Preservation Association so you will see unobstructed views of rolling, natural landscape. Miles of bike trails are just around the corner, as well as walking and running trails. Several wonderful beaches are just a few minutes from the front door.
The historic town is a 10 minute drive away and is filled with fabulous shops and excellent restaurants. Be sure to visit the Whaling Museum!...moreless

Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: My husband and I have lived in New England for most of our lives. We did most of our growing up in Maine and currently live in Central Massachusetts - on the 'mainland.'
Why the Owner Chose Madaket: We first visited Nantucket in 2011 and fell in love with the island - we actually went house-hunting during that first visit! In August, 2012 we visited again and decided we definitely should buy a home on the island. We purchased our Madaket home in October, 2012. Since we aren't able to live there year 'round, we decided to share our home with others who want a comfortable place to stay.
The Unique Benefits at this House: What we liked best about our home is that it felt as though we were 'tucked away' from the hustle and bustle. We also loved the feeling we had when we first opened the front door. The home was so inviting!
While it had great bones, it needed some love. Over the winter of 2012/2013, we renovated the property, inside and out! Each off-season we have done more work on the house. 2015 now sees a beautiful new shed for all the beach equipment and coolers! Guests can also shelter their bicycles from the weather. :)
We survey all our guests and take their opinions to heart. We've heard that more light is needed in the family room, so we are addressing that before our first 2015 guests arrive.
