  • perfect small family getaway

    "This cottage was perfect for our family of four. Our two boys 11 and 8 had plenty of space to play and we could relax in the front room. Its central location provides access to everything from coffee to beaches. The cottage is the perfect mix style and convenience."

  • Amazing Vacation Home

    "This home was absolutely perfect! It was exactly as represented on the site (even better than expected) and had all of the amenities our large group required - including A/C a must for us! We had four adults, 3 teenage girls and 4 children between the ages of 8 and 12. The house comfortably fit all eleven of us with room to spare! Having 3 full baths and one outdoor shower was an incredible luxury given the size of our crew. There was plenty of cozy space to hang out and relax with the family. The kitchen was large and easy to work in with every possible amenity you could want. The downstairs was beautifully renovated with high ceilings that made all of the bedrooms very comfortable. The best part of this property for us was the LOCATION!! It could not have been better... the walk to town was quick and beautiful. Getting to town was so easy we let our kids walk their on their own every day. Our boys used the baseball fields right up the street to play a week long whiffle ball tournament and our favorite beach (Surfside) was a short drive with easy parking or bike ride away. We cannot say enough about this beautiful home. This may have been our best Nantucket vacation yet and in large part because of the comfort and luxuries this amazing home offered!! We would highly recommend this rental to anyone!"

  • Stunning home!

    "This home is beautifully decorated and impeccably maintained. It is the perfect setting for a large family or group. The common areas comfortable accomodate a group and the house also provides ample private spaces to relax in. The proximity to town makes it easy for all to come and go as they please."

  • Great place to stay on Nantucket!

    "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this apartment! It was very clean and convenient to restaurants and shops. We were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go, except to the beach. There are bike rentals for that. We were there for a wedding, however, so took a cab -- a quick ride to the beach. Everything is so beautiful there -- we would love to return, and would stay at the same place! Debbie was very helpful!"

Nantucket Town Travel Tips

Need Nantucket Rentals for Your Next Trip?

Located just about 30 miles off the coast of Cape Cod is Nantucket Island. The quiet harbors, sandy beaches, old mansions and gardens, dramatic cliffs, and the interesting history give Nantucket rentals an extra edge over other Cape Cod accommodations. Though the island itself is small, people come in droves to Nantucket beach homes year after year. It is best seen during the summer, but Nantucket lodging is available throughout the year.

Getting into Nantucket Rentals

Because it is an island, the only way to access your Nantucket lodging from the mainland is either by air or sea. The name of the town literally means “faraway island” and that is the way locals and tourists alike prefer it. During the summer, there are plenty of ferries and small airlines that you can choose from. In the winter, while there are still such services, their timetables are reduced. Once you get to Nantucket beach homes, you may not want to return anyway!

Seeing the Island from Nantucket Beach Homes

The island is so small that you do not always need a car to get from Nantucket rentals during the summer. A great way to see the island is by using the various two-way paved bike paths which are along each major road on the island. If you do not already have a bicycle at your Nantucket lodging, do not worry! There are plenty of bike rental shops in town that can help your whole family. With a bicycle, you will have no trouble spending the day at the lovely beaches all over the island as well.

History’s Influence on Nantucket Lodging

You cannot book Nantucket beach homes without getting a glimpse into the island’s past as the whaling capital of the world. In fact, many Nantucket rentals are homes which were built back in the 1800s. Some of the red brick homes were owned by the wealthiest of whalers back during that time. Some historic sites to see while staying at Nantucket lodging include the Brant Point Light, Sankaty Head, the Oldest House, and the Old Windmill to name a few.
