About the property

House, 6 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 11)

A very quaint and charming house built in 1807, plaqued by the Nantucket Historical Society. The house has 10 fireplaces, and much of the original character. Perfect for just a couple or a large family or group of friends, (as the house has a 3rd floor) and can sleep up to 10-12 people. Nice level fenced in backyard, perfect for children and BBQs. There are ceiling fans and speakers in each room, and plenty of amenities, including newly renovated bathrooms and an outdoor shower. Also an easy walking distance from the ferry, and to all the shops and restaurants downtown. Just a quick drive to any number of beaches and close to many biking and walking trails and the supermarket. Also with many historic sites and museums just around the corner.

Wonderful family week away

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing week staying in Pleasant Times! There were six of us that stayed for Labor Day week. The house was clean, comfy and had so many amenities, but the best was location, location location! We were able to walk to so many places but also have a great quiet home to walk back to. The kitchen had everything that you could possibly need, It felt like being home. We loved every minute of our family vacation on our favorite island. Thank you so much for letting us stay in your home.

Nantucket stay

  • 5 of 5

We are so sorry that we cannot give you a review as we never made it to Nantucket due to Hurrican Jose. I am sure it would have been lovely and the owners seemed so nice! Maybe some time in the future we can experience Nantucket.

WOW, just wow, couldn't have been better!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about our stay this past weekend was amazing! Marti and Mark were fantastic, have to give a special shout-out to Marti. I couldn't think of a better person to work with and rent from - THANK YOU times a million! On top of that, the house was fantastic, it was roomie yet cozy. The backyard was awesome (extra points for outdoor shower) and it was a super simple walk to/from downtown. Suffice to say, we will most definitely be renting from Marti and Mark again. Absolute no-brainer!

Incredible charm, close to town, fantastic hosts

  • 5 of 5

We wanted a big, beautiful and charming house within 5 minutes walk to downtown Nantucket - and we found it at Pleasant Times!

We hosted a family reunion with 11 people (8 adults, 3 kids) and everyone was smitten with the history of this spacious captain's house and the historic street where it is situated. No one wanted to leave as everyone slept comfortably and the Nantucket whaler motif permeated throughout the house. We felt like we went back in time reading books, playing cards and exploring the local sights.

The owners Mark and Marti went above and beyond providing local knowledge to beaches that the non-locals would not have known about. When we had a question - they were quick to respond which was an added bonus.

The extra amenities provided were perfect for all of us. Beach toys, umbrellas, chairs and multiple bikes with trailer for pulling kids. Their BBQ setup/outdoor space was spectacular as was their lawn to host an outdoor gathering. Mark and Marti even made sure we knew about the ice fridge in the basement - a great help in the June heat.

I would recommend this house to anyone who wants location, spacious, history, charm, and fantastic hosts. I look forward to returning.

All our best, Marti & Mark.

Quaint, charming, historic home.

  • 5 of 5

"Best house we've ever rented" said my husband. Our family shared this amazing home with our good friends for 4 days. 9 of us in all including 4 teenagers and a 10 year old. The house is incredibly spacious with room after room of charming period pieces. The house is full of supplies, from kitchen items to towels to bikes and beach supplies. Great location. Super easy walk to town and a great starting point for bike rides to either end of the island (if you're feeling energetic). The owners were great to work with and made the rental process super easy. They truly wanted to ensure that we had a great stay in their home on the island that they love.
