"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."

"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."
