Great family vacation, walking distance to downtown!
"This was our second time visiting Nantucket, but our first since having children. This is a great house, and super convenient, right off of main street and less than a 15 minute walk to the Children's Beach. The house itself is excellently maintained with modern fixtures, while also keeping an historic charm. The kids especially loved the arts and crafts space in the attic. The large, eat in kitchen was great for family meals on rainy days, and the patio was perfect for grilling and eating outside on sunny days. Everyone got a kick out using the outdoor shower after a long day at the beach also! I cannot say enough great things about Pleasant Times, as it made a great vacation to a magical place even more special."

"We recently stayed in this lovely, well appointed home for a family vacation to Nantucket. The house was perfect - nice, new kitchen and modern furnishings. It was also on a very quiet street - perfect for two small kiddos to get to bed at a decent time. We would love to rent this house again!"

"In advance of our trip, Mary was a wonderful host. Her hospitality, responsiveness and personal touches made our family feel right at home staying as if we were going to stay with a close friend. My only regret was not being able to meet with her in person.
The home was in a private neighborhood in Madaket close to Eel Point and 40th pole beach. Surrounded by well manicured landscaping, sea shell driveway and window boxes, this house has the signature, gently weathered, Nantucket grey cedar exterior. There is a swing on the porch and chairs with plenty of space for golf clubs, fishing rods and coolers. Two double french doors in the rear open up to a north west exposure and a patio complemented with teak furnishings. The hidden gem on the exterior was a 2nd floor deck off of a rear bedroom where we could retreat and watch the best sunset on the east coast. The property borders a private wildlife sanctuary and we were happy to spend time observing the Kestrels on a nearby box that were easily viewed with some binoculars.
The interior was nicely furnished with attention to all the small details. Our first impression was to immediately go into "relax mode" because we didn't need to rush around to grab the normal odds and ends that are normally required during our stay (cooking, cleaning, charcoal for the grill, etc). We could get a sense that our host really took the time and effort to make sure their guests could just focus on enjoying their time in Nantucket. Good electronics, sound system and high speed wifi.
The location was terrific. There are only a couple "drive on" beaches left in Nantucket and 40th pole is one of them. We picked up a beach permit from the police station and could drive from the house to 40th pole in 5-10 min. Even without a permit, it is about a 10-15 min walk through the sanctuary to get to the beach which is north facing so the waves are typically smaller (and kid friendly) with plenty of shells and activities for all ages. I was able to enjoy some saltwater fly fishing each morning where I could easily wade from 40th pole all the way to Eel point almost always by myself!
No need for beach chairs, bags, towels, etc. All included.
We truly had a wonderful time in this home and will be looking forward to staying here again in the future. Thank you for making our time in Nantucket extra special."

We loved being here. Is in walking distance to Main Street and the center of the town of Nantucket, and a quick drive to beaches. We stayed here at thanksgiving...and it was a wonderful, comfortable holiday spot!"
