About the property

Peaceful Nantucket home with sweeping ocean views

'Far and Away' is a perfect upside down home on the beach down Madequecham Valley Road. It's just far enough from town to feel truly secluded but close enough that you're never more than 20 minutes from dinner, shopping or a bike ride in town. Expansive back lawn can accommodate a tent for the perfect beach wedding or large event (additional fees apply)

The home features a large master suite, 2 smaller bedrooms and a bright and airy 'kids room' that sleeps up to 5 - all on the first floor. Kitchen and living room are on the second floor and feature a great wraparound deck in the rear with amazing ocean views.

We LOVE Far and Away!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed here three years in a row and there's nowhere on the island we'd rather stay. With the four bedrooms, it is perfect for our extended family of five adults and two kids. The house is in great condition and this year has a new gas grill, which was fantastic. We love the fact that the living area is one large room that includes the kitchen, dining and family room, all with 180 degree views of the ocean. The vaulted ceilings with wood beams are wonderful, as I'm sure the fireplace would be in colder months.

The house is remote, meaning a 10 minute drive down a dirt road, but that adds to the charm of it, with sweeping ocean views and beautiful sunrises and sunsets since the house faces south. The beach is beautiful, the best on Nantucket, and on the calmer days the kids love going out in the waves to boogie board.

All communication has been awesome with Kathy, as she's super responsive and very clear about everything the house has to offer and the house logistics (keys, trash, recycling, etc.).

The house is 20 or so minutes from town, so of you're looking to go into town a bunch and out to eat all the time, you'll spend some time in the car. But if you want to spend your week at the house, make meals on the grill while looking at the ocean and play games in the large back yard while listening to the waves, this is the perfect house. We can't wait to do it again next year.

Beautiful and Secluded House

  • 4 of 5

This house is great for a moderate to large group looking for privacy with an absolute joyous view. The Kitchen and Deck on the second floor look over a beautiful/large lawn great for games and just a short walk beyond that is the beach.

Great house beautiful view steps from the beach

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful week in august staying and Far and Away. The house was great very comfortable and had everything we needed for a week of relaxing and cooking and having fun. The view was incredible and so relaxing to listen to the waves at night and being steps from the beach made it all so easy. We look forward to staying again.

A wonderful family retreat

  • 5 of 5

This home is very private, located down a long dirt road on Madequecham beach. Everything was clean and in good repair, and we loved being so close to the water. Plenty of sleeping and entertaining room for a large group. Hope to return soon!

Figawi Weekend

  • 4 of 5

The Madequecham house is a real Nantucket house. Off a long unpaved Sandy road it puts tranquility and serenity at the top Of the list. We had a full house and there was plenty of room for all. The house was clean and adorable. I would definitely recommended this home to anyone who has a larger group. Especially for those families who want peace and quite away from town and the sounds of the ocean All the time this is your house.
