Recent Nantucket Island reviews

  • Really enjoyed our stay

    "My family of four spent a lovely and relaxing time on Nantucket. The house is very comfortable and well-suited for us. (We have a 5 year old and 8 year old.) There was plenty of space for us and all of the stuff we brought along. The starry skies were amazing. We loved the bike paths and the beautiful miles of beaches. We left my children's stuffed animals by accident and Nancy and her crew had them reutrned in just a few days. Nancy was very open and receptive to feedback. I really had the sense that she wanted us to have a wonderful time while we were in Nantucket."

  • Memorable Vacation

    "Sea Castle was terrific and my family and I had a wonderful time. Christine and Karl are wonderful hosts and went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable. Everything from a welcome cheese platter and treats for the kids to a perfectly appoiinted house with everything we needed for the beach too. I can't recommend Sea Castle more. Nantucket is a beautiful island made even nicer because of Christine and Karl."

  • A Perfect Week

    "Without a doubt, this was voted our best home ever! From your first correspondence to our departure, you have been so helpful and inviting. You really made us all feel so at home. Unlike some rentals, we truly felt like you were lending us your home for the week. The wine, the roses, and your note made us all feel so welcome. I have never seen a better equipped house, especially the kitchen. We really appreciated all of your recommendations. We always have one night for a clambake so we have tried many different places. By far, Gliddens was our our best ever. We even discovered your Stubby's late one afternoon to take home for the kid's dinner...they gave the panini, cheeseburger and chicken fingers thumbs up! Many an hour was spent on the bocci court...from my 86 year old father to our 9 year old grandson, it was a big hit. As always, our time there flew by. We are all looking forward to our next visit."

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.
