Why Jared Geller chose Nantucket Island

We have both been vacationing on Nantucket throughout our whole lives and have each spent years on the island as year-round residents. We absolutely love being near the ocean, and who could resist the quaint feel of the cobblestoned streets and historic downtown.

Ideal Location

  • 5 of 5

Far more spacious than it appears, this cottage was perfect for 4 adults. Short walk to town, shops, docks and market. Well maintained, pristinely clean, and delightful in all respects!

Owner's Response: We loved having you at our home and hope you'll be back! Thank you for the very kind review. As everyone says, the location can't be beat. And as you astutely mentioned, the cottage is perfectly-sized for two couples or a small family. We will be sure to extend your kudos to the housekeeping, landscaping and care-taking crews.

Wonderful little cottage close to town

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I loved our stay at this wonderful cozy cottage. It was very quaint and comfortable and had everything we needed. The outdoor space in front is great for your morning coffee or an afternoon cocktail. The home is located to the rear of a home along main street, together with two other cottages. It's a 10 minute walk to town, or just a few minutes by bike. I would highly recommend renting bikes to get around, Young's bikes had very nice bikes and were easy to check out and in. The owner (Jared) was very responsive and helpful and made some great recommendations for restaurants and places to see. We definitely plan to return!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at our cottage!! Thank you for the wonderful review. The island is sometimes best seen by bike and Young's has been doing a great job renting bikes on the island for decades. Deciding on where you want to eat at night can sometimes be overwhelming. I'm glad my recommendations came in handy. I'm curious as to which ones were your favorite. We'd be glad to host you again on your next trip to the island!

Charming and conveniently located

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful and charming property. Just the perfect size for 2 couples for a weekend getaway. The location could not have been more perfect - an easy walk to town, shopping, restaurants and other activities. What a wonderful home base while we visited Nantucket for a wedding. The owners were a pleasure to work with, and ensured our check in and checkout were simple. Accomodations left nothing to be desired.

Beautiful, family-friendly cottage close to town

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from our stay at 132R Main Street and we had such an incredible experience. I cannot say enough great things about the house. We were 4 adults and an 11 month old, and all comfortably fit. The layout of the house worked perfectly for us, as there were two full baths. At night, we grilled fresh fish for dinner and had cocktails on the front patio. The house was incredibly clean and we were impressed with its condition. As for location, you really cannot beat it! Our only complaint was that we should have booked it for a week!! Big thanks to Jared, too, for being so responsive and making the entire process from A to Z so easy. I am sure you will be hearing from us next year. :)

Adorable cottage, amazing location!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this cottage for a week's stay with my parents and newborn the week following Labor Day. I was a bit worried from the pics that the cottage would be a bit tight for 4 adults and a baby, but was pleasantly surprised to find it was much bigger in person.

The downstairs open living space is nicely furnished with a dining table, sofa, loveseat and tv. The kitchen was well stocked and the downstairs bath recently remodeled. We spent our mornings drinking coffee in the Adirondacks on the front porch admiring the gardens and enjoying the late summer sun. Parking spot was a huge added bonus!

The upstairs bedrooms are small, but plenty of room for what we needed (even fit the Pack n Play in the room with us!). There is a common den area with a futon and tv which we didn't really use, but was nice to have the extra space. The upstairs bath is older and tight, but very cute old clawfoot tub (and better water pressure than downstairs shower!).

The location can't be beat. Plenty of charming old Nantucket homes to drool over on your short walk into town (5min to the top of Main St, 10min max if walking slow), but still super quiet and quaint. Overall had a fantastic experience and would absolutely stay here again!
