  • A week to remember

    "Had an excellent time at Franky Starlight. Not only is the house in an ideal location, it is well kept, spacious and a great place to relax. Can't wait to come back next year."

  • Spectacular!

    "First the basics - Seaduced is exactly as advertised, the listing and pictures are accurate, the house is clean and well maintained, the owner was pleasant, helpful and honest, we would recommend staying here to anyone and the beach is right out off the deck. My wife and I stayed here for a week with our adult sons, their significant others, our dog and my wife's mother. It was the perfect choice - everyone had their own sleeping space and plenty of common area to enjoy eachothers' company. All the room are fully furnished. None of the rooms are small. Perfect! The main living area is comprised of the entrance, kitchen, dining room and living room (all open), from the main level 3 steps down to two bedrooms and a jack and jill bath, from the main level 6 steps up to two bedrooms and a jack and jill bath. All those rooms have swinging or pocket doors. Nice! The house is outfitted with everything you need for a week at the beach - ample kitchen with cookware, tools, appliances, dishes, glasses, flatware, etc.; beach chairs, towels, umbrellas, boards, kites, etc.; gas grill; deck furniture; a garage for the car; grass area for the dog; a path through the brush to the private beach; outdoor shower. Wonderful! When we arrived the house was spotless, all the beds were freshly made, plenty of blankets, towels, and pillows. Convenient! The house is very secluded, it is on an easy to navigate dirt road, directly on the beach, NOT within a stones throw of the next house. If you see another person, you take notice. Private! Pleasant sea breezes, the sound of the surf 24/7, beautiful sunrises, sunsets and moonlit, starry nights. Spectacular!"

  • Absolute Gem of a Madaket Beach Cottage! Nantucket Summertime Perfection!!

    "Wow!! Having spent a number of summers on Nantucket, but never before at the beach in Madaket, I can now say I know exactly what all of the insiders have long known; Madaket IS Nantucket summertime perfection! It is exactly why people flock to the island. And "Abigale' is the most perfect location to be. Stunning sunsets, steps to the beach, and sleeping to the cool sea breezes. A traditional beach cottage, with the amenities but without the pretense, it is cheerfully decorated, comfortable, and has really comfortable beds! We spent the days kayaking, clamming out at Esther's Point, swimming in the ocean and the harbor, taking long walks, and just relaxing on the front yard Adirondacks, watching the beachgoers walk by, and BBQ-ing the day's fresh catch. It is such an incredible atmosphere; laid back and with a pace that begs for relaxation. And if you happen to not feel like beating down the summer traffic in town, you can either procure the evening's meal next door at the mini-Millie's Market, or just pop in to Millie's for some excellent fresh fish tacos and 'Madaket Mysteries'. Also convenient is the island bus and bike path, right out front. You needn't even bring your car. The owners are wonderful people, and right in the neighborhood, should you need anything. They know everything there is to know about the island....a great source of local info for the tourists. (Neal even took us out fishing for a day)!! All in all, it was probably the best week we've ever spent on Nantucket.....and that's going back quite a long time! We give this beach cottage a perfect '10' and highly recommend it to anyone looking for that authentic Nantucket beach experience!"

  • A perfect week in a wonderful home

    "We just spent a week at this beautiful house and had the absolute best time. The owner is absolutely wonderful, very easy to communicate with and work with, and left lots of information regarding the island. Gorgeous views of Hither Creek and the wrap around deck is amazing for watching sunset. This house encompasses and exudes the charm Old Madaket and of the island-- from the beautiful architecture of the house to the decor with oil lamps, baskets, photos of Millie, and shelves of books to choose from when you need something to read. It was such a treasure to get to spend a week away at such a warm, welcoming home. I felt truly immersed in the history of the island by staying here and felt as though I was staying in a family home-- filled with history and memories, not just a rental property. Walking to Madaket Beach is an easy, fun trip, and we actually ended up walking/hiking about 40 miles around the island during our one week stay. Eel Point is also a short walk (about 2 miles) from the house, and a must see! We had a wonderful time navigating the island primarily on foot-- as we were able to explore many of sights hidden along the Madaket bike path, that cannot be appreciated from a car. Bicycling is another great option to get around the island and into town. Would absolutely recommend this rental to friends and family, and would love to return next October! Trying to convince some girlfriends to come for their first trip to Nantucket! Thank you so much for sharing your home and island with us; we can't wait to return!"
