Recent Nantucket Town reviews

  • Wedding Week

    "Our family rented Barntucket for the week of our daughters wedding. The layout is fantastic to accommodate a large family. The kitchen has all you need and the towels are white fluffy. The decor is rich with history and antiquity; Yet it is comfortable and welcoming. The dining table is the best for entertaining and when you have a wedding you are entertaining guest coming to the island before hand. It has it all and it's close to town. The backdrop for pictures for the before wedding shots are award winning. You will not be disappointed."

  • Wonderful Stay - A BEAUTIFUL home!

    "I cannot say enough about how fantastic our stay at The Kaster home was. Communication leading up to the arrival was perfect and the actual arrival was flawless. Everything was ready for us! We were on-island for the Thanksgiving holiday and our son's baptism. As you can expect, lots of family and friends about! There was plenty of room for everyone and endless compliments on how well-appointed the house is. The kitchen was fully-stocked and just waiting for our groceries. We were able to entertain with ease. Plenty of serving-ware, sheets, pillows, blankets - all ready and waiting. Easy 10-15 minute walk to Main Street, close to mid-island (stop and shop)... really and ideal location. The in-home compendium outlines all the home amenities and who to call for what. We felt welcome the minute we walked in the door and wished we didn't have to leave so soon! We are looking forward to our next opportunity to stay at this home and want to thank the Kaster family for such a lovely space for our family and friends!"

  • Perfect cottage

    "We stayed at the cottage for our honeymoon and it was perfect! It was close enough to town to walk; however, we mostly rode the bikes into town, which was a quick and easy ride. Having the bikes available was wonderful and we took them all over the island as the cottage was in such a central location. The actual place was clean and had everything we needed - we especially liked having the kitchen so we could save some money by cooking for ourselves. We loved this place and cannot wait to come back!"

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.
