About the property

Charming and cozy, Perfect For A Week's Vacation Or A Wedding Weekend

Many updates in 2015 and 2016! Located on a private lane just a short walk to town and easy access to bike paths and beaches, our property is a quintessential Nantucket getaway. Our property consists of two cottages, duplex style, with separate entrances and decks and a large shared yard (see listing #994545 for our other cottage). There is also a separate studio on the property that the owners use occasionally.

Cottage A (Leeward) has two bedrooms, 1 bathroom, and main living room with efficient kitchen and living space. The first bedroom has a full size bed, and the second bedroom has two twin beds. The deck overlooks the large shared, nicely landscaped yard, and with comfortable outdoor furniture and a gas grill (new Weber grill in 2016). There is also ample off-street parking. Linens, beach chairs & towels provided.

Kitchen is newly renovated in 2015 and has an LG refrigerator, compact stove, microwave and a dishwasher. Everything that you would need for a week's getaway is provided.

The bathroom has also been updated in with marble floors and tile walls with a modern glass shower surround.

Outside features a large professionally landscaped yard and a large outside shower (new in 2015). The outside shower features hot water and a dressing area for privacy.

While just a short walk to Main Street- the cottage is down a secluded lane that is quiet and private. You will feel like you are miles away from the hustle and bustle.

WiFi and a flat screen TV with Cable TV are provided.

Guestbook comments from the owner

1 Boyers Alley is centrally located and puts you within reach of beaches at all ends of the island and a nice walk into town.

We had a great time spreading out our laptops and dinners/breakfasts on the dining table and watching World Cup TV. The deck is really so nice in the sun. Comfy house for the two of us. Hope we can visit again and sign the guest book for 1 Boyers B!

Great Columbus Day Weekend Visit!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Cottage B for two nights over Columbus Day weekend with our dog and had a great trip. The cottage was clean, comfortable and fully equipped. It's a great location - short walks to everything - and the deck was perfect for sitting outside in the sun. We'd definitely stay here again!

Great first trip with a young family.

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from 5 nights in Boyers Alley and the property was exactly what we were looking for. This was our first trip as a family of four (kids are 2 1/2 and 10 mos) and the property fit our needs perfectly. Close enough to Town to be able to walk in and enjoy, but also removed enough to relax while we were home. Also accessible to restaurants, the beach, the store, etc. The property was clean and comfortable. Kendra and Phil were great and very accommodating and were great to work with. We would definitely recommend this rental!

Charming Rental

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic Nantucket vacation. The cottage is charming and had everything we needed for a memorably stay. After a day of exploring the island, it became our routine to return back and relax on the deck or in the beautiful backyard. The owners are great to interact with too. We hope to return next summer!
