About Francene Amari-Faulkner

I love Nantucket and delight in preparing my home for visitors and their pets to experience the beauty of this wonderful island. I take pride in providing a wonderful and well stocked place for people to enjoy the 'Nantucket experience.'

Francene Amari-Faulkner purchased this house in 2004

Why Francene Amari-Faulkner chose Nantucket Town

My home is a real Nantucket Greek Revival built in 1870 after the great fire. I continually make improvements to preserve this wonderful property each year. I always receive wonderful compliments from my guests and have many repeat tenants.

What makes this house unique

The location is what people always comment on how much they love. Even though many homeowners say they are 'in town' 82 Centre Street truly is. It is a 5 minute walk to Main Street and easy walking access to everything in town.

Great Nantucket Rental

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this Nantucket house. The location was great. It was a short walk to downtown. The house was very clean and had all the amenities we needed for a great family vacation. I am planning on staying there again in 2017!

Owner's Response: Absolutely wonderful guests who treated my home with as much care as if it was their own. I'm hoping you think of 82 Centre Street again when you want to return to beautiful Nantucket Island.

My family and I have rented this house 3 times over the last three seasons. We keep coming back to this house because of the location (very close to downtown), the cleanliness, the friendly layout as well as the size of the house and the attention paid to every detail. This property is literally the most perfect rental on the island! The house fits one or two families very comfortably. You could not ask for a better stocked house on the island. We have never needed something and did not find it in the house. The owner is very helpful and available for any questions that we have asked her over the years. Our kids are able to walk into town alone. I know this is a very busy rental property - but if you can find a free week you should rent this house. You will not be sorry! Cant wait for our week in 2017.

Absolutely the best place I have ever stayed!

  • 5 of 5

I love 82 Centre street! Everything was fantastic! The house was well stocked with basic supplies so we could begin our 2 weeks without having to run to Stop and Shop the very first thing when we arrived. The house is really clean, nice sheets and towels, soap in all of the bathrooms, etc. The home owner was easily reachable when we had a question. Absolutely fantastic location! My cranky brother in law from Texas was even happy! We had a wonderful lobster / clam bake and the dining room comfortably accommodated us all. Love, Love Love this house and location! And - the no key system was great. I didn't have to coordinate who had the key. Even our dog liked it! :-)

Excellent home in excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this wonderful home with an incredible location and for 2 weeks. The host has thought of everything including a sewing kit when my husbands button fell off! The house is very clean and our teenage kids could easily walk to talk and grab pizza when they wanted. Happy kids! Happy parents! We will definitely return to 82 Centre Street.

Fabulous home, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to experience all Nantucket offers. The house is exactly as described in the listing - very clean and maintained. It's a perfect place to stay, particularly if you decide to leave you car at home. Walk to beaches and downtown are quick and scenic. Walk to rental bikes, scooters, jeeps and island bus stops makes it easy to get all around the island. Bonus is the quiet, upscale restaurant next door, cleverly tucked in to the neighborhood. Owner was easy to contact and happy to work with our needs/schedule. Looking forward to returning soon for another wonderful family vacation on the island!

Exactly as hoped: just beautiful !

  • 5 of 5

The location couldn't have been better. Just far enough from downtown making an evening walk just perfect. Close enough to restaurants without the need of a car. Loved the interior of the house, clean, well kept and cozy. Really enjoyed our stay and plan on coming back to this property. Owner was a pleasure to deal with as well.

Car: not necessary

Incredible IN TOWN location - actual 5 minute walk from shops, restaurants, museums, etc. as well as beaches. Children's Beach 3 blocks away. Steps beach is 10 minutes and Jetties Beach is about a 15 minute walk. A car is not necessary from this location so there is no need to sit in traffic or look for a parking space when you are a few minutes walk from everything in town. This location offers privacy and comfort with its large yard.

Other Activities: Restaurants, shops, museums, beaches
