Property description

***WE WILL NOT RENT FOR FUGAWI WEEKEND!!! NOTE: We rent by the week only starting the week before Memorial Day weekend continuing through Labor Day. Additionally, because Memorial Day weekend is also Fugawi on Nantucket, and because of its reputation, we will only rent to families that week. Thank you ! ***

Bula Cottage is on a tree-lined street that is perfectly situated in town: a five minute walk to some of Nantucket's best restaurants, Main Street, and the ferry; a ten minute walk to Jetties, Children's, Steps, and Brandt Point Beaches; and convenient to bike paths and the exclusive Cliff area.
Antique pine floors and a fireplace add charm to the nice-sized living room -- you can enjoy watching the large flat-screen t.v. or work a puzzle on the game table. The dining room is graced with antique pine floors and a crystal ship-shaped chandelier. The dining table will fit all eight guest comfortably. You will find our kitchen updated and equipped to handle all of your cooking needs. A half bath is situated between the dining room and kitchen. A large master bedroom with a king-sized bed and an en suite bath completes the first floor.
The second floor has three bedrooms-- two bedrooms have twin beds and one bedroom has a queen. The upstairs bathroom with toilet, sink, and shower over tub, has a washer and dryer discretely tucked away for your convenience.
Enjoy Nantucket's nice weather on the patio. There is a table with six chairs, 2 chaise lounges, and a gas grill for your outdoor dining, or for relaxing with a good book.
* We are replacing some of the furniture that you may see in the pictures.
**Also, if you are wondering about the name Bula let me explain: Bula is a word used in Fiji much like the word Aloha is used in Hawaii. Bula literally means life and is most commonly used as a greeting. Using it as a greeting is to wish someone happiness and good health -- what more could you ask for!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: We were born and raised in the South but have lived in San Francisco, California for over 25 years. We have two children in college and a dog, Thor.

Why the Owner Chose Nantucket Town:
We love Nantucket and have enjoyed visiting the island over the past few years. I started looking at property a couple of summers ago when I was on-island. I continued my search throughout the fall and winter by checking out all of the island's new listings daily. When this house came on the market I finally got on a plane. I fell in love with the house's charm and the location is perfect!
