Girls weekend- location, location, location!
"Loved this house! It has old charm but updated bathrooms and kitchen. Easy walk from ferry and main street on quaint cobblestone streets which was so important since we didn't have a car. The visitor center was off main street from which we took a courtesy shuttle to Ciscoe brewery for a day trip. We also spent some time in the private, well manicured backyard cooking on the grill. The owners were super helpful and made sure we had everything we needed. I would definitely recommend "pleasant times" to family and friends! I hope to return soon!"

"We stayed in this house with 5 adults and 3 babies. (Two families and a nanny) It was the perfect size. There was also a trampoline which is not in the ad but which our Toddlers loved (and was a real life saver). The house was modern and immaculate, just like the pictures. We had been concerned about the railings and stairs with the toddlers before arriving due to the pictures but it was completely safe and not a problem at all in reality.

"Wow! My wife, children, and I decided to take our in-laws to Nantucket, a love of theirs, for their 50th wedding anniversary. It had been 12 years since my wife and I had visited Nantucket and we had no idea where we wanted to stay. That was of course until we located this house (12 Folger Ave.) online. For such a special occasion we wanted everything to be perfect, and PERFECTION is what we found. It was obvious from our first contact with the owner that she was different from all others we were dialoging with about rentals on Nantucket. She truly cared about our experience and went well-above and beyond expectations. She was flexible, knowledgeable, blessed with a marvelous personality, and responsive; all solidifying that we could trust her and that we were in good hands.
Then we arrived at the house. We traveled up the gravel driveway (incredibly well-maintained) and parked our cars. Two large Salix trees created a natural archway leading toward the front of the house. As you walk between the Salix, suddenly your eyes fall upon the remarkable winding stone walkway lined with beautiful flowers. As your eyes lift you're in awe of the private from porch with the swing and chairs. Hydrangea line the front of the porch. Inside the house, it is decorated meticulously. No detail missed. My in-laws comment summed it up. "This is the nicest rental house we have ever stayed in throughout our years of travel (They travel constantly). Our family agreed. It amazed me that my best memories of the week on Nantucket are all at the house. It is that special.
Of course having it stocked with bikes, Tommy Bahama beach chairs, everything a kitchen could need were all wonderful; but what makes 12 Folger different than any other rental is true care for the property and the rentals we experienced from the owner. There is no doubt that the next time we travel to Nantucket we will be staying at this house. It would be virtually impossible to top it."

Great location, beautiful home and gardens, very comfortable and private
"I have stayed in several homes over the past ten years, and I highly recommend this home. The pictures on the site are great, but the home and the gardens will exceed your expectations. It is taken care of very well, and features a great location since it is very close to Milestone Road in Tom Nevers, which allows you to get everywhere quickly. Yet, you would never know that you are a few blocks from Milestone Road given the privacy and the serenity at this home.
This is a very good property for families. The rooms are comfortable, the kitchen is large, and there are several areas for families to enjoy. There is a secret shade garden with a fire pit, a large deck with a grill and plenty of other garden space (the kids enjoyed Wiffleball contests on the lawn). I especially enjoyed the library, which was a perfect place to unwind and enjoy a drink, replete with dark wood and comfortable chairs (and a TV). The rest of the house is bright and sunny, in the usual Nantucket style. In addition, the property features a very comfortable guesthouse apartment.
We stayed at this property in late June, and since we like to explore the entire island, the location is perfect. There are private beaches down Tom Nevers Road, and plenty of places to go for a nice drive (we rented a jeep and enjoyed the trail off Milestone Road and others).
In short, as a frequent traveler to the island who has stayed in several homes, I highly recommend this vacation rental. You will not be disappointed!"
