About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

Waterfront at its best! "Landfall" is located directly on Nantucket harbor with its own private bay beach, short walk to the ocean beach, and 50 yards from the Wauwinet Inn. The home was recently gut renovated and is designer-decorated. The property boasts a large yard and offers immense privacy.

Sweeping views of Nantucket harbor dominate the 20' x 30' great room with cathedral ceilings, custom millwork, top of the line appliances (wolf, subzero), 42" flat screen TV and cozy sectional. Enjoy morning coffee from the tranquility of your covered porch overlooking the beach or cocktails while watching the sun set over the harbor. Walk down to your own private sandy beach which is great for kids, swimming, collecting shells, sailing and boating. Hop on your boat (a boat mooring is available for your use - bring your boat or rent one!) to town, Coatue, or wherever the day brings. Walk across the street to a semi-private path to the Atlantic ocean. The property is also located just 3 houses south (50 yards) of the Wauwinet Inn, which boasts award-winning fine dining, a bar, and spa and tennis facilities. It's a dream house in a dream location.... Read the reviews!

About Jon Walker

Family with 4 young children.

Jon Walker purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Jon Walker chose Nantucket

We've owned a summer house in 3 different locations on Nantucket. This is the best and a forever keeper. The ability to walk to the harbor and the ocean AND to walk to the Wauwinet Inn for drinks and/or dinner, tennis and spa services is incomparable on Nantucket.

What makes this cottage unique

Ideal location on Nantucket. We moor our boat right out front, walk to the beach, and just play.

Perfect Nantucket Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This meticulously maintained beach cottage is perfect for any couple for small family. The location is unbeatable and is right next to the Wauwinet Hotel and it offers very convenient access to Great Point. We let the air out of our tires at least once per day, visited Siasconset for ice cream and went into town daily as well after spending the mornings on the beach. The decor is impeccable and the owners really take special pride and care in the property. I want to return to this delightful piece of heaven hopefully soon. The kids really enjoyed their stay at Landfall.

Relaxing home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This was our first VRBO experience and unfortunately spoiled us for every other property we may stay in afterwards. The owners were very accommodating and easily reachable for questions & concerns.

The house is lovely and is exactly what you see in the photos. The location is close enough to almost be part of the Wauwinet Inn. We were attending a wedding held at the Inn and this house was much nicer than their cottages, which were almost directly across from the property. We were happy to be close enough to walk to the festivities yet still be able to have our own space. It is, as others have mentioned, about a 15-20 minute drive to town. I wouldn't rely solely on the Wauwinet shuttle to get around. The grounds are very large with direct access to the beach. There is a slightly steep section so it may be a little difficult for some to walk down. We loved the covered porch in the back and spent quite a bit of time sitting out there with a nice cold Whale Tail Pale Ale and a book. It is a cottage and you need to remember this when considering your space needs. The 2nd bedroom is very smartly configured with 4 bunks but full sized adults may find the bunks on the short side.

We were highly recommending it to other wedding guests in attendence.

Our only disappointment was in not having more time to spend at Landfall.

Fall in love at Landfall

  • 5 of 5

Welcome to "Landfall."

My husband and I just enjoyed an amazing vacation with our 7 month old little boy in Nantucket at "Landfall." We are looking forward to next year already. A bit about it....

Resort-style island living achieves a new benchmark of luxury in this very romantic designer inspired cottage. Serenely beautiful in an almost impossible waterfront setting, showcasing unobstructed Wauwinet Harbor views, this home will take your breath away. Decorated with artful sophistication, the owners have not missed a detail. From a comfortable and lush, white sectional, a recessed 42 inch television, high-end appliances including a Wolf range and a Sub Zero refrigerator/freezer, an Electrolux washer/dryer and a chef's kitchen complete with All-Clad pans and Spiegelau wine glasses to a Weber grill overlooking the bay and beach toys/chairs/umbrellas, this home is perfectly functional and luxurious to a fault. Fringed with lush foliage right at the doorstep, this island beauty blends the finest custom finishes with a waterside bank of windows to create a magical experience for all audiences.

The property is extremely private and quiet. It's located a short 15 minutes from town, next to the renowned Wauwinet Inn, situated with the Sound on one side and the Atlantic Ocean on the other. The Wauwinet features a wonderful spa and a spectacular Relaix and Chateaux restaurant. For a more casual affair or a sunset cocktail, they offer a deck menu for lunch and dinner. Breakfast and brunch is not to miss either.

Whether seeking a relaxing and intimate vacation, with your toes in the sand, quiet nights and the ocean's breeze, or an adventure filled get-away complete with biking, kayaking/boating, windsurfing/kite boarding, fishing, and late night dinners downtown- "Landfall" creates a dynamic venue for all tastes.

AMAZING would be an understatement!

  • 5 of 5

We rented LANDFALL the third week in August 2011 and to say we were happy would be the understatement of the year! It's hard to know where to start, everything is so fabulous!

The cottage is BEAUTIFULLY done; top of the line everything (Sub-Zero, Wolf range, freezer drawers, etc), really comfortable, completely user friendly, anything and everything you could want, and honestly it looks like it should be in a magazine, it's that great! The expansive kitchen is a chef's dream and the super-comfortable living room, with its reccessed LCD TV, was perfect for watching the morning news or, even better, watching a movie on a dreary afternoon!

The only thing better than the cottage itself was the setting! As I said, we were there in August, a normally busy time on Nantucket, yet we felt like we had the Island to ourselves. The views and sunsets from the cottage are like the ones you see in a postcard, spectacular! And what could be better than waking up, jumping in the outdoor shower overlooking the harbor, making some coffee, and walking down onto your own private beach to welcome the day?! The harbor-front beach is a wonderful place to spend the day. An excellent place to catch some sun, go for a swim, use the kayak, and perfect for children to play in the warm, calm, shallow water.

While town is a short 15 minute ride away, the Wauwinet (one of Nantucket's top hotels) is less than a 2 minute walk away. My wife and I loved going over for a drink while watching the sunset and Toppers (the restaurant) is a true dining experience. If a massage is what you want, they have a Spa as well.

The owners have thought of everything when it comes to this cottage and you certainly will not be disappointed. We hope everyone has as good an experience as we did, but just not the week we are hoping to rent it again!

Upscale Wauwinet Gem

  • 5 of 5

Ideal location, beautifully appointed and perfectly maintained cottage, wonderful owners. Photos and listing description accurately reflect property- both the indoor & outdoor amenities.

Wauwinet is our favorite spot on Nantucket- beautiful, uncrowded beaches; stunning views and sunsets on the harbor; access to water sports, biking, running & walking paths.

We are a middle-aged couple and this house was the perfect size for us and we look forward to returning again next summer! We would have loved to be here when our kids were young- the second bedroom is great for kids, but would be crowded with 4 additional teens/adults ( consider 2-3 max).

The Wauwinet Inn is right next door, no transportation needed! Would recommend having a car to be able drive into Town for restaurants, shopping & nightlife.
