Great for our family

  • 5 of 5

The family had the most wonderful time at your home! The bedrooms were perfect for our four family configuration. The suite over the living room for my sisters son, daughter in law and their three children; the downstairs bedroom for my daughter and son in law, the upstairs double for my son and daughter in law and their infant and the twin room for my sister and me.

We found the living room comfortable, the kitchen perfect for several cooks working together, the porch perfect for family meals and the hammock wonderful for young and old. My four year old granddaughters favorite part of the week was swinging on the hammock with her cousins. She will remember those rides long after she forgets the whales we saw, the swimming, the shell collecting and the rest that filled our week.

We feel very fortunate that we found you on VRBO, and we will highly recommend the Nantucket House

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. There's something to be said about relaxing on a summer day in the hammock! We hope you'll think of us again when you need some sand in your shoes!

300+ year old home with lots of character!

  • 4 of 5

We recently stayed two weeks at this historic Chatham home. We had three different family groups join us along the way and all had fun. It is in a great location with only a 15 minute walk to the beach through a delightful neighborhood and two great nearby restaurants. It is on Main Street. 3 miles from the town center and about two miles from a big Stop & Shop grocery store.

This home has many nooks and crannies that the kids enjoyed searching and the owners were very proactive in immediately fixing any problem we had. (I reported a leaking kitchen faucet in the am and the plumber was there to fix it later that same day.) With six bedrooms and six mostly small bathrooms there was room enough for 12+ people. The weather was extremely hot (heat index around 100) and each of the bedroom's room air conditioners were working full time. --- At times the kitchen and family room were uncomfortably warm.

All in all we had a great time with our kids and grand kids!

Lovely house in a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We love this house, close to the beaches and close to the quaint town of Chatham. The owners are very thoughtful, they provide so many extras that made our stay a pleasure. Lots of beach towels, beach toys, and plenty of kitchen equipment. We love the enclosed backyard that was a lovely sanctuary for morning coffe or a place to relax after the beach. We would definitely stay here again!

Wonderful, convenient and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

Our Cape Cod vacation was perfect! We had everything we needed for a comfortable stay in Chatham with our infant. The bedrooms were very comfortable and spacious . We were a easy walk to the beach and a short drive to the beautiful downtown. The dining room and patio area allowed for large family gathering without feeling cramped what so ever. We will definitely be back.

A Nice Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5

Our first visit to Cape Cod and our Family enjoyed our stay in this very nice home. There was room for all of us without feeling cramped. The kitchen is spacious, the BBQ grill is large and the areas for eating, drinking and playing with the Grandchildren were great. The children loved lounging in the hammock or just sitting around in the Adirondack Chairs. The adults loved sitting on the deck and just observing. The beaches were great, the restaurants were nice and the weather couldn't be beat. The outdoor shower after a beach day is a treat. We look forward to a return trip.

Perfect House for a family of 12!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a fabulous Cape Cod vacation and this home was absolutely perfect. The large kitchen and dining room provided the room we need to make meals together and eat at one table. The bedrooms were nice and had the perfect set-up for each of our families. Loved the 5 full bathroom and we never ran out of hot water. The dishwasher and washer & dryer were a plus. Played cards and snacked on the porch while the kids played in the yard. Close to all of our favorite beaches and attractions. Great house for a great time. Owners were amazing.
