Recent Nantucket Town property reviews

  • 3 Generations

    "With two master suites, three levels of privacy, a modern kitchen, parking for two vehicles, and a central location, this wonderfully decorated and impeccably clean five bedroom served our party of eight (ages 12 to 75) masterfully. Having rented homes before in Harbour Island, Telluride, Paris, and other hot spots, we whole-heartedly recommend 2 Cliff Road as a superior, in-town Nantucket property."

  • Terrifc Rental

    "This house in a prefect location for all types of activites which is what our family wanted for our visit to Nantucket. There was 3 famillies, 11 of us all together and we had plenty of room in this spacious home. I say home because you feel comfortable from the minute you step in the fromt door. The garden area is beautiful too and well maintained around the house. We rented bicycles in town and walked or rode everywhere even out of town to other beach areas. The owner was very helpful answering questions and giving us activites to do and names of babysitters, etc.,etc. You will not regret renting this house."

  • Perfect Nantucket Cottage!

    "Nantucket can be somewhat overwhelming when you are looking for a place to stay. However, if you are looking for comfort, simplicity and the most convenient location, THIS IS THE PLACE! I have been renting this cottage for four years running and we rent it several times a year... in the summer and in the fall. From this comfy cottage, you are within a 10 minute ride to everywhere... beach, town and Cisco Brewery. If you prefer to leave the car parked, Island bikes is across the street with affordable rentals and the town bike path can take you from one side of the island to the other. The owner is delightful and flexible, which makes renting this cottage that much easier. We absolutely love working with her."

  • A Delightful Stay!

    "This adorable cottage fit the bill for us perfectly: clean, well-maintained and not too small. There's even a sweet backyard area, nice for starting the day with some coffee or using the outdoor grill in the evening. As the previous reviewers said, it is a bit of a walk to town, but really not that bad! And if we were feeling a little lazy we would just jump on the WAVE bus that stopped nearby. The owner graciously answered any pre-visit questtons we had and was a delight to meet in person (and, although she lives close by, she made it a point to give us our privacy). The icing on the cake is that we were able to bring our little dog! If we were asked for suggestions on what can be done to make a stay at this cottage better, we wouldn't be able to come up with anything. We're already planning our return visit for next year."

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.
