Recent Nantucket Town reviews
A Wonderful Vacation House!!
"We spent our annual family reunion at this wonderful house. It was fantastic. The house was tastefully decorated, comfortable, spacious, quiet, well equipped,and accessible to many beautiful quiet beaches. The sunsets were spectacular as were the views from the dining room. Although the town and stop and shop were close by, we didn't experience the heavy traffic that you'd find elsewhere on the island. This is the second home that we have rented on Nantucket and Polpis is by far our favorite area. An amazing and wonderful week in a beautiful spot."

"Very peaceful house in central location. We found the neighborhood quiet and serene, with easy access to bike paths to Surfside Beach and other locations. We had numerous visitors, including elementary aged children who were quite comfortable with the pool and the house facilities. There were plentiful chairs, towels and bikes to accommodate most families. Owner very accessible with information, suggestions and guidance on how to make the most of our stay."

"Wonderfully peaceful location even in the super high season of mid-August. Easy and quick access to a fabulous beach which, thanks to Tom Nevers being a private estate, was never crowded. As the marketing description presents, even with resident seals!
The cottage is clean and well presented. The bikes and beach kit are a welcome bonus.
We were a family of 4 with children of 15 and 13. Everything worked out fine for us, however the size and lay-out of the house is best suited to a couple or a family of 3 to 4 with younger children.
For an active, older group no need for a car. By bike, Sconset (nearest shop) is 20 minutes Nantucket town around 30 minutes. With Frank's (the owner) recommendation the culinary highlight being the lobster supper take-out (delivered by taxi) from Sayles. A must-do, good value meal in an otherwise expensive restaurant environment.
Finally, a major reason we would return and definitely recommend to others is the owner - Frank Matarrazo. Frank was very helpful and responsive through the renting process (we were coming from Europe) and very attentive during our stay, eg the Sayles recommendation.
Overall, 4.5 stars review with the only point being the size/lay-out vs family size."

"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."
