"We have rented on Nantucket for close to ten years and have stayed at various areas. This property was by far one of the best - from the modern decor, the pool, and the sun filled rooms to the basement theatre and beautiful distant water views. The house hit all the buttons you need on a vacation and then some. An impeccable property esp if you have kids - since a pool is a godsend for most and so is the giant screen in the basement."

"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 really enjoyed our stay at the Pineapple House. The location - near two beaches - was ideal, and it offered the peace and quiet we were looking for. My 5-year-old loved her bedroom, and I loved the large deck. The kitchen had everything we could possibly want. It was the perfect place for a great vacation."

Great Vacation home near the best Nantucket beaches & Water views!
"Great house for family vacation. Updates of new decks on ground & second floors make this house fantastic. Our family (2 adult & 2 teens) enjoyed inside and out. Inside lots of space to relax both upstairs and downstairs. Outside was fantastic. We spent many afternoon and evening hours on the deck. There is a large dining table and multiple chairs to relax in. We had dinner outside at least 4 times. Outdoor shower as well. We loved the outdoor ping pong table - epic family battles. The outdoor gas grill was High quality Weber, which we made use of. We enjoyed the many Sunsets from the deck & widows walk.
5 minutes down Warrens landing road is the Madaket bike path that we rode on just about everyday. We also took walks to 40th pole beach on the other side of Eel point road, just a half hour walk.
The house was well equipped, for our vacation as the landlord supplied just about everything. No AC but the ocean breeze kept the place remarkably cool."
