Cliff Cottage Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms/2.5 Baths, Sleeps 8

Bula Cottage is on a tree-lined street that is perfectly situated in town: a five minute walk to some of Nantucket's best restaurants, Main Street, and the ferry; a ten minute walk to Jetties, Children's, Steps, and Brandt Point Beaches; and convenient to bike paths and the exclusive Cliff area.

Antique pine floors and a fireplace add charm to the nice-sized living room -- you can enjoy watching the large flat-screen t.v. or work a puzzle on the game table. The dining room is graced with antique pine floors and a crystal ship-shaped chandelier. The dining table will fit all eight guest comfortably. You will find our kitchen updated and equipped to handle all of your cooking needs. A half bath is situated between the dining room and kitchen. A large master bedroom with a king-sized bed and an en suite bath completes the first floor.

The second floor has three bedrooms-- two bedrooms have twin beds and one bedroom has a queen. The upstairs bathroom with toilet, sink, and shower over tub, has a washer and dryer discretely tucked away for your convenience.

Enjoy Nantucket's nice weather on the patio. There is a table with six chairs, 2 chaise lounges, and a gas grill for outdoor dining, or for relaxing with a good book.

**Also, if you are wondering about the name Bula let me explain: Bula is a word used in Fiji much like the word Aloha is used in Hawaii. Bula literally means life and is most commonly used as a greeting. Using it as a greeting is to wish someone happiness and good health -- what more could you ask for!

About Carla

We were born and raised in the South but have lived in San Francisco, California for over 25 years. We have two children in college and a dog, Thor.

Carla purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Carla chose Nantucket Island

We love Nantucket and have enjoyed visiting the island over the past few years. I started looking at property a couple of summers ago when I was on-island. I continued my search throughout the fall and winter by checking out all of the island's new listings daily. When this house came on the market I finally got on a plane. I fell in love with the house's charm and the location is perfect!

A beautiful Nantucket home!

  • 5 of 5

This warm, inviting home felt like "home" the minute we walked in! The location is perfect, close to everything, but quiet enough to be the perfect place to relax! Carla was very accommodating and easy to work with. We asked for and received a late checkout. All communications were very quickly responded to. This was the first time we rented a home in Nantucket and we feel very fortunate to have had such a good experience, with both the home and the owner. We would not hesitate to stay at Bula Cottage again!

The Perfect Nantucket House

  • 5 of 5

I had stayed at this home several times before the current owner bought it, and fell in love with it the first time we were there. It just felt like "home". It changed ownership last year and is now better than ever with fresh paint and décor. The location was just perfect for our family, which includes my husband, 3 adult children, and two small grandchildren. We are from Texas and Oklahoma, so we genuinely appreciated the room air conditioners which were more than adequate. There is lots of room for us to spread out in the large living room, which has a big flat screen tv, and the big dining room table easily accommodates all of us for family meals. The kitchen is well stocked and very spacious and modern with new stainless steel appliances. Four bedrooms, all very generously sized, are bright and airy, and the new owner has added cheerful new bedding in each room. There is a new washer and dryer in the upstairs bathroom, and all the bathrooms have been beautifully updated. Anyone who has a car on Nantucket knows the value of a private driveway, and thankfully this house has one! But best of all, it's so close to both town and the beach. Main Street is a very easy 5 minute walk right down Centre Street, and Jetties Beach is maybe 10 minutes away. When we have the little kiddoes with us, we drive to either Jetties or Children's Beach just because it's easier, but walking to either one would be a breeze. In the morning, I walk up Chester Street past The Oldest House and on up to Cliff Road. . .it's just a great, central location which suited us PERFECTLY! I went there this past weekend with 3 girlfriends, and they couldn't stop raving about how beautiful and homey and convenient the house is -- and believe me, we can be hard to please. Bula Cottage is both a great find, and a good value. The keypad entry is handy instead of having to keep up with a key, the patio was great for early morning coffee and our traditional last night lobster fest, and having a television in each bedroom is a nice touch for when we all needed a little down time. I just can't say enough nice things about the house, and the new homeowner is SO very nice and easy to work with. I've read some horror stories about other rentals, but could not have been more pleased with our stay at Bula Cottage. Two thumbs up for sure!

Great house, great location!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house in order to attend Daffodil Weekend and we were completely satisfied. Carla, the owner, was easy to work with from our first contact, through our stay and finally upon our check-out. She provided us the name of the caretaker and how to reach him but we never needed him for any reason. The house was easy to get into through a keypad door handle which was nice because whoever got home first could easily get in. The house was a short walk from everything the festival had to offer and all of the sites that we wanted to see in Nantucket. We began our mornings with a short walk to the bakery on Petticoat Row and after a wonderful breakfast, we would continue down to main street. At the end of our very active days, we would return home to relax next to the fireplace that we easily started with the flip of a switch. There were many restaurants within walking distance and only ordered a cab once to visit one that was further out of town. The cottage is decorated in such a neat, authentic way to the island yet maintains clean, fresh lines. The longer we stayed, the more we fell in love with it. The beds were so comfortable that the morning we left, I laughingly told the couple that we were traveling with that I had stripped the bed so I could find out information on the mattress because it was a slice of heaven. To our surprise, they had done the exact same thing in their room the night before. Our only complaint was that we hadn't chosen to stay a few more days. We woke early on the morning that we were heading home and were on the ferry when I received a text from Carla letting us know that we could take our time checking out because she didn't have any renters checking in that afternoon. I reported in to my adult daughter throughout our days and let her know how great the island is and the wonderful shopping that was available. She was so impressed that she has decided that we need to return for a girls weekend. If we do, I will DEFINITELY rent this house again!
