About Michael Wheeler

We have been long-time visitors to Nantucket, starting to vacation here in 1978. We loved the island so much we decided to buy a property as our children were nearing completion of college in 2003.

Michael Wheeler purchased this house in 2003

Why Michael Wheeler chose Nantucket Town

With the location being just 200 steps from one of the main town streets, it takes just minutes walk to get coffee or the papers or to visit the many shops and restaurants in town. The property was also so sunny, airy and roomy compared to many others, we just couldn't resist.

What makes this house unique

Central air on the second floor to be sure you sleep in comfort. In-town location with easy access to beaches and rest of island. Just a short 7-10 minute walk to the ferries, so a car is not required for shorter stays but recommended for periods of week or longer. Gambrel-style architecture with several other interesting features, such as second floor 'cocktail' deck.

Great House, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We were 3 couples visiting Nantucket for a 4 day get-away and this house did the trick for location, and accommodations. All 3 couples (retired) agreed if we returned to Nantucket for another visit we would want to rent this house again. Convenient to everything. Every room was well painted (looked new) clean and comfortable. Plenty of seating for around dining room table and kitchen table and although we ate out most of our meals, the kitchen was well stocked for our occasional meals. Bedrooms & bathrooms all very nice. Owners were very accommodating with check in and check out. We recommend this house for your next visit to Nantucket.

We'll be back!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year renting this sweet house and we are already looking forward to when we can get back. It is the perfect house for our family as it is well maintained inside and out, roomy and very comfortable, bright and cheery, has a pretty little garden, and is thoughtfully organized and well appointed with all you need: comfy beds, tons of towels, beach chairs, a cooler, a grill, etc.....the owners have thought of everything. The best part about staying here though is the LOCATION. We LOVE being able to walk out the door and be in town within minutes, whether it's to pick up a yummy acai bowl from Lemon Press in the morning, walk to Cru for dinner, or hit The Juice Bar for an evening treat. We have taken our car with us on both visits (stayed 3 weeks one time) but it isn't necessary for a shorter visit. To top it off, the owners are lovely to deal with. Highly recommend!

After hours spent searching the internet, lucky to find the perfect in-town Nantucket home!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a house near all the activities connected to our son's wedding. I had no idea when I booked this beautiful home how perfect it would be! It was literally a short walk to the church, reception, rehearsal dinner, ferry, inns where all the guests were staying, shops, restaurants, the Whaling Museum, and of course, the beaches. PLUS it had that welcoming, "Cape Cod" feel I was hoping for, with lots of light, good screens for the windows, gracious and comfortable rooms, a large dining room table, flowers at both the front and back doors, peonies blooming in the side garden, and a fabulous deck area on the back side. When I discovered after leaving Nantucket that I had left 2 bags at the home, the caretaker immediately found them and got them to friends who were leaving on the ferry the next day. What a relief to have that personal attention! Clearly the owners want those of us who rent from them to have every reason to love their home as much as they do. We would absolutely stay here again.
