Quidnet / Squam Gem
We've been renting on Nantucket for the past 11 years and have rented this cottage for the past 5.
The cottage is always clean, fresh, and bright. The views are lovely and the property is beautifully maintained, serene and private.
We walk to the beach and or Quidnet Pond (5 min walk) on a daily basis and the proximity to both is unique on Nantucket.
We rent for three weeks each year which speaks to our level of satisfaction.
That said...this cottage and its location make it truly a gem!
Great stay in Quinet!
I just want to say what a delightful time we had spending a week at the Nantucket cottage on Squam Rd. in Quidnet. So I was surprised to see the letter to VRBO that was so critical. Our experience was quite the opposite. Everything was fully equipped. We had no trouble finding the lobster crackers or forks, or anything else for that matter. We separated the trash with no problem, as we do at home. I can’t imagine not doing so. We had total privacy, spending almost every night either dining on the deck or on the patio completely alone.
The cottage itself is delightful, with lovely paintings and other decorations. It is comfortable and has great views of the ocean and pond. There are many good books to choose from for reading. The ocean was less than a five minute walk and our kids had a wonderful time at the pond, which was also less than five minutes away.
The landlords were great. They went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and that all was OK. They told us if we had any questions or needed anything to just let them know and they would take care of it. I’m not sure what the complaints were about, but for me and my husband we could not have had a better time.
This home is every bit as lovely as the pictures here show, but it's what they DON'T show that is the real story: This is an add - on to the owners' garage which is cheek by jowl to their home in which they live full time. The owners are a lovely retired couple but they will be working in the garage every morning
When you go to take the trash out in your pj's and will point out that you didn't do the recycling correctly, or, be working in the garden around your "2.3 acres of complete privacy" and point out that your daughter trampled her flowers ( for which she went over and apologized). There is nothing wrong with any of this, but it is not what it was advertised as being. I rented this house because of the privacy that was repeatedly mentioned, and found anything but, at least the minute you leave the back yard. This is just plain misleading advertising. Also, the "well-stocked kitchen?" Not so much. No tall or large drinking glasses; lobster pot, yes, but without claw crackers or pickers, hardly useful. Tv should be in a museum and only watchable from two feet away. A dangerous raised step into one of the bedrooms caused a serious fall for two of us and when I suggested to the owner that caution tape be added for future guests, I was told they they had never had a complaint about this before and clearly it was our problem. Also, every where you look is a laundry list of "don'ts" which is hardly welcoming or makes one feel that the owner is happy to have you enjoy their "2.3 acres of complete privacy."
Again, any of the above would be acceptable, with the exception of the step, as long as one knew what to expect. To arrive expecting to be greeted by "2.3 acres of complete privacy" only to learn that the owners will be around and visible 24/7 seems to me to be
dishonest and unethical, especially for the weekly rate being charged.
We are sorry our tenant did not enjoy her stay in our cottage. We are also sorry she got her facts a little mixed up. Indeed, we do use the garage, but only to store and retrieve garden tools. We don’t “work” in it and we are careful not to open the door until 9 AM at the earliest. We are not quite sure why she alluded to us as retired as both of us work full time. It must have just been another assumption.
Had the tenant bothered to read the cottage guidelines she would have seen that sorting the trash is dictated by town rules - not ours. In fact, if it is not properly sorted, it will not be picked up. The flowers, which the tenant never offered to replace, were destroyed by her daughter and friend in a rather bizarre incident. The two girls snuck out the window at night by removing the screen and climbing out the window, crushing the day lilies as they did so. Apparently, they were on their way to go skinny dipping and didn’t want the tenant to know, or so we were told.
We are a little mystified as to the tenant’s observation that there is no privacy. The fact of the matter is that there is a ten foot tall privet hedge between the cottage and main house and the cottage is built on a separate lot. There is a private patio and garden behind the cottage with vegetation all around it.
We are also mystified that the tenant said there were no lobster utensils. Had she just asked us, which she did not, we would have shown her that they were in a drawer next to the kitchen sink where we found them after she left.
Finally, we are sorry the TV did not meet her standards. We assumed, perhaps incorrectly, that people come to Nantucket to enjoy the outdoors and even some summertime reading. In any event, we are pleased that we have the chance to clear up any misconceptions and welcome tenants who enjoy privacy, a fully equipped kitchen, lovely grounds and peace and quiet on 2 plus acres.
This two bedroom two bathroom cottage is located a two minute walk from the pond and children's beach and 5 minutes from the ocean. It is situated on 2.3 acres overlooking wetlands. There is a brick patio in the rear with a butterfly garden.
