About Patty Kepenash
Hi, Let me introduce you to my family. I am Patty. I married Mike in 1990 after meeting here on the island. We bought our land in 1991 and Mike designed and built Dalliance for us the following year.
Patty Kepenash purchased this Cottage in 1991
Why Patty Kepenash chose Nantucket
We fell in love with the property the moment we saw it. The location is so perfect - close to the beach, to town, to mid island shopping and to the bike path, yet tucked away on the culdesac and totally private.
What makes this Cottage unique
One of the unique benefits of our home is that it is near to everything but secluded at the same time. The house is perfectly oriented North/ South, with the outdoor living space to the sunny, breezy south shore. There are lush natural plantings all around it, and no one can see you from the back yard. You can hear the waves pounding and Fiera whinney for breakfast and the faraway summer sound of voices of children playing wafting on the breeze.

Exceeded our expectations!
Our stay at Dalliance was wonderful! The pictures do not do it justice. At the end of a cul-de-sac, the property is quiet and secluded. The outdoor space is lush with greenery and wildlife passing through. I loved visiting Fifi, the owner's horse, and feeding her carrots. The cottage is cozy, yet spacious. Every detail has been considered and we immediately felt relaxed and at home. This is a property I would definitely return to.
Thank you for your kind review. We are so lucky that you chose to stay with us out of the hundreds of other choices. I am happy you had such good weather and that you and Fifi became fast friends. We are here if you are ever back on the East coast. Enjoy the rest of your summer!
Patty and Mike
Dalliance is a little slice of heaven
This was our first time on the island and will certainly not be the last. The property Patty and Mike have built is beautiful inside and out. We are already looking forward to our next trip.
Thank you Barry for your review and for your wonderful care and appreciation of Dalliance. We would love to have you return to reprise your experience and add to the vitality and history of our home!
Absolutely the BEST rental property I have ever discovered on Nantucket!
Patty and Mike's home is clean, beautiful, comfortable and the location is terrific.
The outdoor patio and grill lends itself to fabulous summer entertaining. It is a quick trip to any of the beautiful beaches and close to town. A wonderful rental for vacations, weddings etc..I will be back again this summer!!!
A Slice of Heaven
We can't say enough about Patty and Mike's vacation home. It was gorgeous and comfortable with everything you could ask for. Patty was an amazing hostess and gave us just the right amount of privacy while making it clear she was available for anything we needed. The outdoor shower was divine. The beach is in walking distance and the sound of the waves can be heard at night through the skylight in the master bedroom. A car is helpful for going into town but there is also a shuttle bus stop within easy walking distance if preferred. We can imagine being regular summer renters and are already looking forward to returning!!
Lovely Property & People
Dalliance is a beautiful home and Patty & Mike are great hosts!
We stayed for a week with our 2 year old son, and everyone enjoyed it. The place is lovely, clean and functional. The outdoor shower is amazing! Our little guy got a thrill out of feeding the horse carrots each day! The photos do not do this place justice!!!
We left our car on the mainland, but Patty was kind enough to pick us up and drop us off again at the ferry. We also appreciated the fact that she was always available via email to answer quick questions or update us on the Mid-Island Market!
Could go on and on, but words (like pictures) won't do Dalliance or its owners justice. We recommend you see it for yourself!
This cottage was even nicer in person than in the pictures. It was very private and quiet with a beautiful porch and backyard. We had breakfast out there every morning. It was so peaceful and relaxing. There is one bathroom and two bedrooms upstairs with very comfortable beds, a queen in one and two single beds in the other. The house was immaculate. And the details that went into the design of the house were simply amazing.
The house is about a 10 to 15 minute walk to the beach, right down Surfside Dr.which is about a block away. Or you can get on a shuttle bus, but we never did after the first time, once we realized how close the beach was. My personal recommendation would be to walk down Surfside, but you can take another path to the beach which lets you out in a less populated section of the shore. But then you are rather far from the bathrooms and concession area. The island is really easy to get around via any of several shuttle buses, but they run somewhat infrequently and, apart from the Surfside bus which also goes to town, they are a bit of a hike to get to. The problem with the Surfside bus is that it only runs until 6PM, as it is intended for the beach goers. If we had to do it again, we would rent bicycles or a scooter. I think a car would be more trouble than it's worth. There's quite a bit of traffic in town during the season.
In town, there are a number of very good restaurants, but nothing really reasonably priced, apart from the sidewalk storefront places. In the "Mid-Island" area, the Seagrill was great, but also pricey.
I cannot say enough good things about the property owners. They were incredibly warm, friendly and helpful. But they also respected our privacy. All in all, you couldn't ask for better hosts.
Oh, Nantucket! that wonderful spit of sand that teems with life all the year... summers of sun and art and music, or just quiet contemplation. A haven for artists for over a century, Nantucket boasts some of the worlds best artwork, restaurants and theater as well as many beaches, woodland and moorland walks and is a bird watchers paradise! World class golfing, fishing and whale watching too. Something for everyone!
