"I rented "The Scallop" for family that was visiting for a long weekend this October and I can't say enough good things about our experience! The cottage was a perfect fit for a family of six, small enough to feel intimate yet large enough to not be cramped. The cottage's location is near perfect within yards of Madaket beach, views of Millie's bridge and the harbor, and short walking distance to Smith's Point and Jackson Point. In October Madaket's only restaurant, Millie's, is closed, but the house is equipped with everything you might need for cooking at home. There is even a rake and basket if you'd like to try your hand a scalloping in Madaket Harbor, which we did and loved(with a shellfish permit from the Town of course). Another huge perk are the modern accessories provided for your use. The kids were thrilled to find a Google Chromecast and a bluetooth sound system. The sound system makes it easy to stream music from your phone without having to plug in and the Chromecast allows you to stream video, Netflix or HBOgo, from your phone or laptop. Having lived on Nantucket for awhile now, I've come to find myself loving the serenity of Madaket over the other areas of the island. If you're looking for the same, this rental is right for you."

"We visited Nantucket for the first time with our 14 month old son, my parents, and sister. The house is cozy and has everything you need for a comfortable and enjoyable stay. We enjoyed the large dining room table as we had many family dinners during our 7 day stay. The pool and club house center was a nice added touch, although, I will say it is definitely filled with and aimed at pleasing those that have little ones. The location of Naushop is pretty central and it didn't take us longer than 10/15 minutes to get anywhere. I would even say most of our drives were under 10 minutes. It's definitely a location where you need to rent or have a vehicle. We can't wait to plan another family trip to Nantucket. Many thanks to the owners for helping to make our trip to Nantucket so special and memorable!"

"My family and I stayed in this home during our trip to Nantucket in August of 2014. The home and surrounding area were absolutely gorgeous, and the view from the second floor porch was unparalleled. The kitchen was fully stocked with all of the appliance essentials (including a margarita machine!), the furniture was tasteful and comfortable, and the home was exceptionally clean upon arrival. I hope to book the Upside-Down house again in the future."

"We stayed in this house for a week in August 2014. The house is in a wonderful location, half mile from Jetties Beach and half mile from town. The house is on a lovely quiet street. We took multiple bike trips from this location. The house is large and well appointed with multiple bedrooms and bathrooms. It was easily able to accommodate our large family group of up to 11 people. Fourteen people can easily stay in this house without a problem. There are decks both in the front and back for very pleasant sitting and relaxing in privacy."
