Property description

Beautifully cared for two-story house with many windows and a large deck where you can relax and enjoy looking out at the ocean and up the beach to Point of Breakers. A short 200 foot walk through the moors gets you to the top of the stairs that lead down to your own virtually private stretch of beach. This beach offers good swimming and, if you bring your rod, a good sized fish can be caught anywhere along this stretch.

The main house has two bedrooms upstairs with a shared full bathroom. One of the bedrooms has two twin beds and the other one has a queen.. Both upstairs bedrooms have beautiful views of the ocean and you will fall asleep to the sound of the waves. The main floor has a full kitchen, a dining area with an old wooden dining table and a bright, sunny living room with casual, comfortable seating. There is also a large bedroom with two twin beds and a half bathroom on the main floor. A private outdoor shower is provided on the back deck and is a favorite on warm days and after a swim.

Just across the driveway is a quaint one-bedroom cottage with a queen size bed, its own half bath and an outdoor shower. This is a great place if you want a bit more privacy. It also has a deck with a view of the ocean and its own covered front porch, great for reading and relaxing out of the sun. The whole property offers peace and quiet away from the crowds in town.

The beach just in front of the house is beautiful and stretches off in both directions for as far as you can see. After storms, large combers roll in and crash on the beach but when we get a period of calm, the ocean can be quite flat with hardly a wave. Most times the waves are just right for body surfing.

Downtown Nantucket is about a 15 minute drive and the market is a little closer.

The cottage is available for a minimum stay of one week, and the guest cabin cannot be rented separately.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: After years of renting this property we took the plunge and bought a half share with our cousin who was looking to share expenses and time at the property. We use it ourselves for most of the summer, but like to share it with others when we are not there, to help defray operating costs. The cottage is well-loved, very comfortable but not fancy. Great for families, couples looking for a getaway, or groups of friends who son't want to be in town or surrounded by lots of people.

Why the Owner Chose Madequecham (Nantucket, MA, USA):
We are biased of course, but we think this is the best place on the whole island. Thought we are close to the airport, we are not on the flight paths, so airport noise is never a problem. There are not many cottages along this stretch of beach so it is always quiet and we never tire of the beauty of the beach and the moors, or of the sound of the waves lulling us to sleep at night. In less than 15 minutes we can be downtown enjoying all that is on offer there, including world class restaurants, exciting cultural activities, and great shopping. But even when the island is at its very busiest, we can always escape to the quiet and peace of the cottage. We have no Wifi and this contributes to the feeling of disconnectedness and back to nature that we cherish.
