"Barntucket is the most comfortable home. Yes it is full of the history of the island, beautifully laid out and decorated, but more, it is a welcoming house which absorbs people and invites relaxation and good conversation. There were 10 family members from all over the country staying in the house and eight others coming and going before and after my son’s wedding. One night there were 14 of us seated around the dining room table for dinner—all talking at once and having a blast. With the living areas on two floors there is plenty of space for puzzles, game playing or escaping to read. There is every possible amenity one could want and two kitchens when everyone wants breakfast in the morning. Among our group were knee and hip replacements and a wheelchair user. The owner offered to make some modifications to the entry ways to ensure the house was accessible, which made all the difference to us—He is definitely not your usual landlord and we are grateful to him for making our stay close to perfect."

My dream vacation with the most spectacular hosts!
"I have had the good fortune to rent from Amanda and Scott both last year and this year. The house is spectacular! It is decorated beautifully and the finishes are of the highest quality. It's honestly my dream home and I never want to leave.
The location is spectacular. It is extremely close to the beach at the end of the road and a short drive into town. I often even walk into town for dinner (about 30 mins) and take a quick taxi back. Nantucket is wonderful place and this home is situated perfectly to take advantage of it.
Amanda and Scott leave nothing unattended. Everything is sparkling clean and your needs are anticipated. For example, I was doing a load of laundry and pulled the dryer sheet out and thought where am I going to put this? I looked down and there was a small trash can just for that purpose. Sounds small, but tells you the level of detail they think of. In addition, they are extremely kind. Just one example: Scott helped me with the laborious process of taking down the soft top on my rental Jeep. We have shared laughs over wine and dinner and they are the most gracious people and super fun to be with. It feels like home but they also provide as much privacy as you want.
To sum it up: It's perfect. You should go. It will be the best rental experience you ever have and a dream vacation. I will be back as often as I can!"

"This is a lovely home. Well cared for. Well designed. Great flow. Nice mix of light and airy rooms, but also cool and comfy rooms to retreat to when you feel bleached out by the sun.
Immaculately clean. Appliances clean and fully functional. Lovely kitchen a pleasure to use. Owner has excellent taste and has furnished the home as though for personal use; quality linens, glassware, appliances, and so on.
Two bedrooms downstairs at some distance from upstairs master suite give parents with teens a little breathing space (unlike most rentals where a traditional format would have everyone in the same sleeping area.)
Location is ideal: near beach, but tucked away for supreme privacy and peace in an otherwise dense area. We spent days biking, hiking, beaching, but happily landed back at Clovelly for the comforts of home. Easy walk to delightful restaurants, and the bustle of Nantucket is only 20 minutes away if you need more variety.
We are already dreaming about coming back."

"This house is wonderful, is a perfect location to walk to the beach or ride a bike to Bartlett Farms, the Cisco Brewery, or the fish market. The beach and the bike path are across the street. The house upon arrival is always clean, great decorations, and supplied with very nice linens (many years brand new sheets and towels) beach towels, beach chairs, and nice outdoor grill. The yard is always well cared for, nice plantings and great space to play for the kids. The layout of the house offers great space with 2 living areas, so the kids can have their own hang out space, as the adults enjoy a separate living area. The owners leave a phone number to call if there are ever any problems, and the owners have many connections on the island if something needs to get fixed. We have rented this house, and another house from this owner for over 10 years, they are great to work with, very efficient with rental contract and security deposit process, we love this house and hope to rent it each summer for many more years."
