"We stayed in this house with 5 adults and 3 babies. (Two families and a nanny) It was the perfect size. There was also a trampoline which is not in the ad but which our Toddlers loved (and was a real life saver). The house was modern and immaculate, just like the pictures. We had been concerned about the railings and stairs with the toddlers before arriving due to the pictures but it was completely safe and not a problem at all in reality.

"The house was perfect for a big family. The kids loved the bunk room. The deck was perfect for breakfast and dinner every day and accommodated everyone easily. The neighborhood was quiet and a nice oasis in the shade to cool off from the beach. We took the quick, drive down to Madaket Beach to watch the sunset almost every night.
We are definitely planning to return."

"We have stayed at this property twice and thoroughly enjoyed both times. It's on a cul de sac so great for families with small children or those who are seeking a bit of peace. The property is near the bus line, a short walk to the beach, is well kept, modern and well equipped. Compared with other properties we've looked at on island, it's good value for money and the owner was very responsive to any queries."

"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."
