Lovely Location With Easy Beach Access & Unencumbered Water Views

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much as it is an extreme departure from where we live and we absolutely love easy access to the beach whenever we travel. This home surely provided that! Although not a particularly well-kept secret on sunny days, those who live on island and are "in the know" recognize it as a superb it's not possible to keep other beach-goers from utilizing the public access drive/parking areas when the sun it shining. Who can blame them is a great beach and with no steep steps to have to negotiate to get there, it's an easy decision. We only had one person actually ask us if they could park in our driveway because there were no other places available to park given the volume of activity on the beach whenever the sun was out. It didn't disrupt our enjoyment of the location as we spent every morning walking our pup on the quiet beach before people started to make their way down the 2 mile dirt road from the main paved road to get to this spot. The neighboring airport didn't bother us at all as the flight paths of nearly all the incoming and outgoing air traffic was not directly overhead. In fact, it was interesting to see planes coming in and leaving from time to time and any airplane noise was brief either way. The interior of the home is adequate as a beach spot without there being anything particularly upscale about the finish detail. Everything worked as it should and it was very pleasant. We did not feel the need to use the window-mount air conditioning units that are available if one so chooses as there was a comfortable cross-breeze with the windows open. Having a dog we love as much as anything in the world, it was critical that we could bring our pup along on this adventure and he was completely comfortable making for a great experience all the way around. We were also able to capture some whale sightings right from the house which was really lucky and incredible to see! We would definitely return again should circumstances allow for another visit and I don't believe anyone would be disappointed with the property or it's location as long as they are aware that this is an "A+" beach that does indeed have public access directly adjacent to the home's private driveway which savvy residents and beach-goers know exists...not surprising on a small island. Enjoy it as much as we did and you will want to return as well! Thank you again for a wonderfully memorable time away!

Nature and Relaxation

  • 4 of 5

We were in for a treat at this beautiful home on Madequecham beach. The house was exactly what we were looking for...away from it all, yet steps from a beautiful beach. The home was well stocked with everything we could possibly want. It was very tastefully decorated and extremely comfortable for my family. We spent our days relaxing and swimming at the beach and our nights relaxing in the comfort of this home.

I was initially concerned that the water might be too rough for my 8 year old son, but he quickly felt comfortable without a life jacket. A short distance down the beach was a sandbar where all of the children on the beach enjoyed playing safely in the waves. During the day, we were thrilled to watch a pod of right whales feeding off shore. It was our own personal whale watch, without the boat ride.

The large deck was a wonderful place to relax after a day at the beach. The view was beautiful and relaxing. The house was welcoming and felt like coming home.

We had a wonderful stay!

Beautiful property and house!

  • 5 of 5

Some of the privacy is lost with the public access road being right next to the house and the path to the beach, but the house is very comfortable and the views from the deck were breathtaking.

Charming and Delightful Waterfront Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in this precious cottage on Madequecham Beach could not have been more perfect!! With just a trip to the market, adding some flowers and candles, we spent two glorious week enjoying the beauty of the wild yarrow, waves, beach, sand, --all of it! Nantucket is a jewel, and the Nelson Cottage is also one...and I might add, cozy and warm with a darling wood stove for rainy, windy days! The kitchen is fully equipped-right down to the lobster pot and accessories, which we enjoyed with a traditional lobster dinner, complete with special napkins!

Holly is responsive in the moment-every question answered immediately and any needed help given- we could not have been more pleased with the "nuts and bolts" aspect. Plenty of beach towels, washer and dryer, beach chairs and umbrella--all of the necessities are here. For any family or 2 couples looking for a perfect beach holiday, this rustic but charming cottage is heaven!!

Fantastic Beachfront Setting

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for a week with my wife and another couple. Beachfront setting can't be beat! Beautiful views of the ocean from the deck and fabulous outdoor shower. The master bedroom has an ocean view, as does the main room (kitchen / living room). There is a washer/dryer in the bathroom. The home itself was clean, we were charmed by the rustic and local decor. We loved the beach-- fun for swimming and surfing. The kitchen is well stocked with cookware and everything you need to prepare meals, plus there is a gas grill on the deck. We loved eating meals outside on the deck. House equipped with beach towels and chairs. The house is located close to the Nantucket Airport, we did see/hear planes coming and going from time to time but it wasn't loud, we didn't really notice or mind the noise. For those not familiar with Madaquecham, the home is located towards the end of a 2 mile dirt road, bringing a car is recommended. Holly was responsive and easy to deal with. Loved the house, hope to stay here again!

Incredible property, unbelievable sunsets, perfect Nantucket beach location!

  • 5 of 5

I have had the unique experience of staying at this fantastic property for two months now. The open floor plan, cathedral ceiling, tremendous porch, beach access, and ocean view are just incredible. The house is warm, inviting and just downright charming. The kitchen is made for entertaining, the house is thoughtfully stocked, the wifi is ripping fast (but really...put down the iPhone and soak in the ocean breeze, the sound of crashing waves, and hit the beach), and the fireplace adds to the great vibe. The manager is super accommodating and understanding and has tended to my every need.

The beach is 100 yards away! Great surfing and paddle boarding. I could not recommend this property more highly. I have no doubt I will be back year after year!
