                    My husband and I rented this house for 2 weeks in September. The only thing we regretted was that we didn't rent it for 3 weeks! Everything went very smoothly with the owner/manager regarding contract, and communication. The house has everything you could possibly need for a beach vacation.....chairs, umbrellas, toys etc. There are bicycles for everyone from toddlers to adults! The kitchen is well-stocked with dishes, pots, condiments, paper goods etc. All you have to supply is the food to prepare. Or if you don't feel like cooking.....Millie's (good restaurant)is a very short walk from the house. And the best part of the vacation is that you are a very very short walk to the beach! There is a front deck and back deck...lovely, quiet and great for early morning coffee. We hope to be back next year!

                    Recommended for: Families with young children, tourists without a car, age 55+, pet owners.

                    What a wonderful location and perfect layout to give each of our guests their own privacy and their own bathroom! The shared space never felt crowded and the back deck and daybed were perfect for sunset dinners and relaxing. There are water views from almost every point of this house and there is a wonderful outdoor shower with amazing water pressure! The proximity to the beaches and our beloved Millie's restaurant was ideal. We walked everywhere. This is a great rental for adults or adults with kids - very safe, quiet street, barley any traffic. I highly recommending renting Frankie Starlight! We will be back!

                    This property was neat and tidy. Had all the ammenities needed for the stay. Location was perfect. Easy walk to beach for sunsets, easy short drive to beach access for 4 wd vehicles. Loved sitting on the back deck watching boats go by, and feeding the ducks at the dock was very fun....but they will peck your feet when you run out of bread!! Great, Great Vacation !!

                    Once you get to Frankie Starlight (a little difficult the first time at night) you will know that your vacation will be awesome. The house itself is very cute, clean and comfortable. The 2 decks allow for ample reading and relaxing. A short 5 minute walk brings you to Madaket beach, but one just needs to look out the windows for a water view. If you tire of boat watching or bunnie watching you only need to wait for sunset-then the real show begins! People come from all over the island to watch the sunset at Madaket for a reason-it's spectacular. The view from the house is amazing, but it's also fun to join the happy crowds at the beach. Millies, a restaurant at the end of Madaket Road provides yummy food and drinks for an easy meal out. The garage full of bikes allows you to enjoy the scenery of Nantucket at your own pace. I would recommend Frankie Starlight to anyone looking to enjoy Nantucket without the crowds. It's a very peaceful place.

                    Recommended for: Families with young children, families with teenagers, romantic getaway, pet owners.

                    We had a wonderful time! Great location, very clean and tasteful cottage, perfect for kids, a garage full of beach stuff, bikes, sandtoys, ... Brilliant private sunsets on the deck. Best beach on Nantucket in walking distance (unfortunately more than a few steps from Switzerland, we feel homesick for Frankie Starlight).

                    Loved our stay at Frank's Madaket place - so close to the beach and a short drive into town (would recommend bringing car to the island). The house is perfect for small families as well as the friends / in-laws with the extra cottage. All the amenities are there (bikes, charcoal grill, charcoal, etc.) for your fantastic stay. Wish we could stay there full time...
