"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 have been renting this property for many years, it is perfect for our family! Close to Tom Nevers beach offering beautiful breezes and sunsets. Located between Town and Siasconset making it easy to explore the entire island. The house is bright, clean, and offers all the conveniences we love (upscale bathrooms, gas grille, outdoor shower, washer, dryer, dishwasher and linens). This has become our second home, we will continue to rent this property for years to come!"

"My family and I stayed in Honeysuckle left for my daughter's wedding. We all totally enjoyed our stay. It was perfect for our needs and was an easy walk to town. I appreciated what a well-maintained and well-made cottage it is from shower curtain to cabinets, furniture and sheets, and so cozy. Everything we needed was provided. I would not hesitate to stay there again."

"My family & I rented this house for a week in June. There were 8 of us and we all fit very comfortably. There was a great big room for all of us to sit around that was connected to the large kitchen. The shuttle stop to different places was on the road of the house. We walked into town which was less than a mile. Working with the owner, Roland, was wonderful. Talked with him a few times prior to our visit. While we were there I had a question and left a message; he called me back right way so I was very happy about that. I would highly recommend renting this house! Thanks again, Roland!"
