Chris purchased this house in 1976

Why Chris chose Monomoy

This is a great neighborhood for a family summer vacation.

Amazing View

  • 5 of 5

Always wanted to stay in Monomoy and this house was a dream come true. Wonderful view of the harbor from the top deck. Just sat and watched the ferries come and go. Great location. Not too far from town but enough for peace and quiet. Absolutely loved the house and location and will be back again and again.

Amazing Weekend

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for a long weekend, and the house could not have been better. It was clean, very spacious, and just the perfect Nantucket home.

We spent a lot of time in the large living room, where 8 or more people could more than comfortably hang out. We spent most of our time on the enormous front deck, on which we ate breakfast each day while gazing out at the ships coming into the harbor and used the large grill to cook the majority of our meals.

The bedrooms and bathrooms are all clean and comfortable. The outdoor shower was such a refreshing experience each morning. The kitchen is decent sized and had all the tools necessary for cooking for large groups.

This house could not be better for a vacation in Nantucket. I honestly was hesitant to post a review, because I want to be able to get the house again next time I visit. It was perfect.
