This wonderful, spacious apartment is located in the heart of Downtown Nantucket, above the iconic retail store: The Haulover. Guests enter from a private exterior staircase into a large living room/kitchen (600sqft). The living room contains a sectional couch, dining table/chair set and bar seating (4) opposite the kitchen. A 42' Flatscreen with Direct TV and a wireless router are located in this room for entertainment or business (included). Room looks out through 8 windows on the quaint downtown scene below. In the summer, an air conditioning unit is installed in this room (as well as both bedrooms). There is also a large closet directly by the main door.
Kitchen is located off the living room, and has a 4-burner electric stove/oven, full-size sink, full-size refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher, coffee machine, toaster, ample cabinet and counter space, plus all the cooking utensils, dishes and glasswear you may need. Great open kitchen to gather with friends or family and cook your own meal of locally-caught seafood, or to prepare vegetables from one of our local farms. One bathroom and two bedrooms are located at the end of a short hallway. Also off the hallway is a small closet with a stackable washer/dryer and a fully-stocked linen closet (towels, sheets, blankets, toilet paper & paper towel provided). The bathroom has a shower, toilet, single basin sink and toilet. Both bedrooms are spacious - over 175sqft (very spacious by Nantucket standards!). Currently, we have 2 queen beds in the front bedroom and 1 queen bed in the back bedroom. We also have a spare twin bed that can be set up in the apartment. Both bedrooms have large closets, dressers, lamps, and bedside tables. Windows abound in the front bedroom, offering plenty of breeze (if you prefer to using the AC unit) and wonderful light. The back bedroom has two windows and a full size door that leads to a small back deck. It is possible to exit the apartment by this door and go down a second set of exterior stairs at the rear of the building. The deck area is not intended for outdoor dining, but big enough for a couple 'camp' chairs if you desire.
Overall, this apartment is unlike many others in downtown Nantucket. It is clean, with an open floor plan, and very bright. The building was constructed in the late 70's so it doesn't have the cramped rooms of many of the island's older houses/inns. The appointments and fixtures in the apartment are all in working order, but simple, allowing us to keep the cost below other apartments in the area. Personally, we are in our late 30's and have many friends (single, married, some with kids ages 1-12) who have stayed and think it is the best value for the price on the island.
We also rent in the off-season to many professionals (project managers, architects, etc.) who find the accommodations perfect while they are on-island for a week or two of work.
Please view the photos and feel free to contact with any additional questions. Nantucket has been our year-round home for over 6 years now and we are active members of the business community.
