Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Allan:

Just a note to wish you and your family a Happy Christmas and to once again tell you how much we enjoyed staying at Candlehouse with all its wonderful improvements. We found the new kitchen a wonderful gathering place for all the family with card games and puzzles going on at the table and others cooking or chatting around the counter. The sitting room on the first floor worked well which we converted to a bedroom as well.

We trust that you found everything in good order after we left and we'd like very much to return there next Thanksgiving.

Happy Holidays,

Nov 2013

Wonderful Light And Airy Just Renovated In Town

Great house in a perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

This house is beautiful, decorated nicely and very clean. Every single imaginable accoutrement that you could ever need or want at your own house is at this house. Great kitchen area with top end appliances including 2 dishwashers which a major benefit after big dinners. The three full bathrooms came in handy as well when we entertained extra guests. Beds and sheets that rival most 5 star hotels in comfort. The upstairs attic space is perfect for lots of little kids to crash. Not displayed in any of the photos is a huge back deck area with a 12 person teak dining table and chairs, other seating areas and an outdoors shower leading out a small yard surrounded by hydrangeas. The deck area is a great spot for dinner, playing board/card games, reading, entertaining or just relaxing after the beach. The house is on a quiet street with a field at the end which was great for the kids to go and play and they could ride their bikes up and down the street with little worry because of the light traffic on the street. Most importantly the house is a leisurely 5 minute walk into to town which made it simple for everyone to cruise into town for breakfast, lunch, dinner or to just to run errands/go shopping. Multiple parking spots and a garage to store your bikes and other beach stuff. Bottom-line we will be renting again and recommend this place highly.

Nice home, but sour ending

  • 2 of 5

Our family has stayed in this home under previous owners 2 other times. It has provided us with wonderful memories! The location is great and the home is spacious enough for our family to be comfortable. The new owners have made nice improvements by updating the kitchen and expanding the deck..which provided us with lovely outdoor suppers. The sour ending involved a nasty memo and withholding some of our deposit. The amount withheld was not much when you consider the amount of the rental, but the issues noted were offensive. The housekeeping staff supposedly said we used all of the bed linens and towels, which was ridiculous. We were also criticized for not watering the outdoor flowers often enough. We love Nantucket and will surely return in the upcoming years, but if you choose to stay in this home, beware and possibly document/picture how you received the home and then how you leave it.

Owner's Response: I have never withheld any portion of any security deposit from any other tenant. As could only be expected, the "review" has not provided the complete story. Here is what I wrote to Her: While the lease clearly stated there were to be only 8 adults in the house, there were clearly more as welll as some children. The number of dirty sheets was doiuble the total number of beds. The table cloth on the large dining room table in the living was stained with permanent markers which we made the mistake of leaving in a drawer. Why would anyone let anyone (child) use permanent markers on a blue and white table cloth worth $200? The grill was so dirty and seemed top be covered in melted plastic that we had to buy new grates. While I believe I am entitled to withhold at least $300, I am retaining only $125. I cannot explain my generosity In the face of what appears to be a total disregard for our home. I cannot explain why Debbie Nichols would trash me in the face of the facts outlined above, but no accounting for human nature.

The house was beautifully decorated and very clean! Every appliance worked great, bathrooms worked great. Plenty of room for all. We loved the back deck area! And so nice to be able to walk into town!
