About The Owner

I lived on Nantucket during my college summers, fell in love with it and have been going back to visit ever since.

My favorite things to do: body surfing the waves at Surfside and Fishermans. Fishing at sunset with the grill going and rods ready. Four wheeling to Madaket for a sunset. Kayaking the inlets of Nantucket Harbor with the kids. Heading to town for a chocolate frappe at the Nantucket Pharmacy. Early coffee and bagel at Black Eyed Susans before the crowd arrives. Margaritas with Dave at the club-car.

The Owner purchased this house in 2012

Why The Owner chose Nantucket

Great location near Surfside beach.

What makes this house unique

If you like to go for a morning run or walk then you'll love this house. Take a right out of the driveway, down the dirt road past the horse farm, then take a path through the dunes staying to the left which leads past the youth hostel to Surfside beach. On the way back walk the beach and cut through the dunes back to the house. When you return take a relaxing shower in one of the outdoor showers, then enjoy a cup of coffee and newspaper on the deck!

Our Favorite Nantucket House!

  • 5 of 5

Our family has been going to Nantucket every summer for the last 6 years and has stayed at a different house each year because we have yet to find "the one"... until now.

The Big-Shoe was absolutely perfect for us! We travel with a group of 10 - 4 adults and the rest of the crew are teenagers. The house was set up perfectly to accommodate two couples - for privacy - and the kids could hang out everywhere comfortably. The back yard was HUGE and perfect for all of the baseball and football games we wanted to play. I also have to note how organized and well supplied the home is - everything you need is there and easy to find.

The location is fabulous - walking distance to our favorite beach and the kids are old enough to bike to town or take the Wave.

It's taken a few years but we've found our repeat home on Nantucket!

Big Shoe was Great

  • 5 of 5

The house was very large with a huge kitchen area. That is where everyone always ends up socializing while dinner is being prepared. The house was within walking distance from a great beach. The back yard was huge for the kids to play catch and run races. You need a vehicle to get around the island but the location was very central. The house is well decorated and very clean. All the beds and furniture seem new. Overall there is a very comfortable, clean, island feel to the property.

Spacious house, great location

  • 5 of 5

Stayed a long weekend with family who know the owners. The house is beautiful with plenty of room. Great location, only a couple of minutes drive to Surfside beach and maybe 10 mins to town. Had everything we needed - towels, beach chairs, etc. Loved the outdoor showers (there are two!) Great deck for enjoying a glass of wine. Only thing missing is a fire pit on the patio (maybe to come soon?) Highly recommend.

Wonderful women's weekend at the Big Shoe!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 7 women stayed at the Big Shoe last weekend and absolutely loved the house, the location. Really relaxing, lots of space for all of us, beautiful back yard and patio. We really loved buying our own seafood and cooking our own dinners. Highly recommend this lovely vaction rental!
