Recent Nantucket Town reviews

  • Family fun

    "Our family had a wonderful time at this cottage. Kathy was so easy to communicate with and quick to help us. The view is amazing from the deck and the beach is so peaceful. We enjoyed long walks on the beach at low tide. It was easy to drive to town and all of the beaches. We can't wait to stay here again. Thanks, Kathy!"

  • Perfect Location!

    "This was my first time ever renting a home through VRBO. I can only hope that any future rentals will be as seamless as this one. Annie, the owner, was fantastic and walked me through every step of this process. The house was the perfect spot for our group (5 couples). We all had plenty of room and never felt like we were on top of each other. My favorite part of the house was definitely the deck out back. It is the perfect place to relax during the day and enjoy a cocktail at night. The location can't be beat-- it is a very quick walk to town (and the beach). I will definitely be back to Nantucket and will be staying at this home!"

  • 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."

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.
