"I rented the house with friends for a September wedding weekend. Five couples stayed in the house, and everyone loved it. The location is convenient - walkable to town, a short cab rides to the ferries and airport. The house itself exceeded our expectations, and none of us wanted to leave!"

Absolute Gem of a Madaket Beach Cottage! Nantucket Summertime Perfection!!
"Wow!! Having spent a number of summers on Nantucket, but never before at the beach in Madaket, I can now say I know exactly what all of the insiders have long known; Madaket IS Nantucket summertime perfection! It is exactly why people flock to the island. And "Abigale' is the most perfect location to be. Stunning sunsets, steps to the beach, and sleeping to the cool sea breezes. A traditional beach cottage, with the amenities but without the pretense, it is cheerfully decorated, comfortable, and has really comfortable beds!
We spent the days kayaking, clamming out at Esther's Point, swimming in the ocean and the harbor, taking long walks, and just relaxing on the front yard Adirondacks, watching the beachgoers walk by, and BBQ-ing the day's fresh catch. It is such an incredible atmosphere; laid back and with a pace that begs for relaxation.
And if you happen to not feel like beating down the summer traffic in town, you can either procure the evening's meal next door at the mini-Millie's Market, or just pop in to Millie's for some excellent fresh fish tacos and 'Madaket Mysteries'. Also convenient is the island bus and bike path, right out front. You needn't even bring your car.
The owners are wonderful people, and right in the neighborhood, should you need anything. They know everything there is to know about the island....a great source of local info for the tourists. (Neal even took us out fishing for a day)!!
All in all, it was probably the best week we've ever spent on Nantucket.....and that's going back quite a long time! We give this beach cottage a perfect '10' and highly recommend it to anyone looking for that authentic Nantucket beach experience!"
