About the Property

4 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8


Looks are deceiving! From the outside, Tucked Away appears to be a small house, but when you open the door you'll be amazed!!
The bright and spacious custom kitchen opens to both the living and dining spaces - both designed for gathering and entertaining family and friends. A large deck with a Weber gas grill and dining for eight is located off the kitchen.
For those rainy days and cozy nights, the family room has a 55" smart HDTV and BluRay/DVD player. There is a 40" HDTV in the loft. Wireless internet is available for those who just can't disconnect. Our guests will enjoy a beautiful outdoor shower and central air conditioning upon their return from the beach or sight-seeing!

Two bedrooms are also located on the first floor - the master with a king bed, TV and adjoining full bath; and a queen with an adjoining full bath. Upstairs boasts a loft for reading or watching TV, as well as a queen bedroom and a twin (2) bedroom that share a full bath.

'Tucked Away' is located in a quiet neighborhood in Madaket only minutes from the beach and town. For those who don't bring or rent a vehicle, the wave bus stop is just a short walk to Madaket road.

Visitors can enjoy the most beautiful sunsets every evening at Madaket beach or while having a drink at Millie's.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: My husband and I have lived in New England for most of our lives. We did most of our growing up in Maine and currently live in Central Massachusetts - on the 'mainland.'

Why the Owner Chose Madaket, Nantucket, MA, USA:
We first visited Nantucket in 2011 and fell in love with the island - we actually went house-hunting during that first visit! In August, 2012 we visited again and decided we definitely should buy a home on the island. We purchased our Madaket home in October, 2012. Since we aren't able to live there year 'round, we decided to share our home with others who want a comfortable place to stay.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
What we liked best about our home is that it felt as though we were 'tucked away' from the hustle and bustle. We also loved the feeling we had when we first opened the front door. The home was so inviting! While it had great bones, it needed some love. Over the winter of 2012/2013, we renovated the property, inside and out! Each off-season we continue to do more work on our island home. :) We survey all our guests and take their opinions to heart.
