Recent Nantucket Island reviews
"We have been renting in 'Sconset for years and I always loved Broadway and Center Street just north of the historic town pump. Ivy Lodge (as we learned on our tour) is one of the original 44 cottages of 'Sconset dating back to 1745. We also learned the old mulberry tree in the back yard is one of 3 remaining on Nantucket from 1740 when islanders made a failed attempt at growing silk worms. So much history and beauty within 50 yards of this home, I couldn't get enough.
This is not a gut rehabbed home that has been stripped of its fine character. You feel like you are walking right into a page of history. This home is situated smack dab in the middle of where most of the 'Sconset post cards are photographed and the well known artist/painter William "Bill" Welch does many of his beautiful water colors. It was a true Nantucket experience that we would highly recommend.
As for the house itself: The pictures are true to form. It is very comfortable, plenty of natural light. The front porch makes a nice setting for dinners or drinks after a day of exploring. The beds are very comfortable and it appears the mattresses are high quality and new. I particularly liked the second floor of North as it reminded me of sleeping in a whaling ship with all the beaded pine and angled ceilings. You can even hear the ocean from your bedroom, the air is so still and quiet at night. The heavy salt air had me sleeping like a baby."

"We had the best vacation, ever! And, it was mainly due to the fact that the house was perfect! With a large and growing family, finding a house to rent that can accommodate us all, in such comfort, has been a challenge. The house and location worked so well with our needs. We could stay at the house for an entire day and be totally entertained, or take the short drive to town or the beach when we wanted to venture out. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this property!!"

"We found this beautiful Upside Down House to be perfect in so many ways. The location sits slightly back off Madaket Road but near the Island Bus Line and the bike path. It is private but with easy access to Madaket Beaches , Millies Restaurant or a quick trip around the Island or into Town. The house itself is well maintained , stocked and furnished for a fabulous beach vacation ( truly everything you need is available for food preparation or an afternoon at the beach) . The second floor porch off the kitchen and living area gives you a front row seat to the famous and beautiful Madaket sunsets. This is a comfortable home perfect for a family vacation or a couple or two couples wanting to stay in a location outside of town. We had a great time here and the owners were very easy to deal with and accommodating - - Really a nice vacation house , what more can I say"

"This house in surfside was perfect for us. Very picturesque and private with a great yard and deck. It was close to the bike paths and beach .Very well maintained with lots of amenities. I was impressed by all the All-Clad pots and pans and such cute dinnerware. We will definitely be back. There was only 4 of us and it was more than perfect. Thank you again for renting to us!"
