A Wonderful Vacation Experience!
My girlfriend, puppy and I had a great vacation at Holly's home in September. I believe the fact that it is down a 2 mile dirt road helped keep traffic on the beach very light. We had long walks with our dog off leash on a beautiful morning where we didn't see a single person. Other times there may be 3 to 5 couples/groups on the beach within sight. The beach is gorgeous and we loved hearing the waves crashing along the shore.
The house was just right for us. The bedrooms were really comfortable, and the open living/kitchen areas worked well. We spent much of our time on the deck with probably 500' of uninterrupted beachfront!!!
The only downsides for us were:
1. The public access road right next to the house leaves cars parking for the beach directly between the house and the ocean views. Thankfully there was plenty of time where there were no cars, and even if there were cars, there is still plenty of uninterrupted views given the 500' or so of shoreline in front of the home. And I believe many visitors would not even mind the cars being parked there.
2. The covers on the couches and dining chairs could use replacing or a good cleaning, as there were stains. I don't think they were actually dirty, just stained. And once you settle into the beach house vibe, you get used to it.
If not for the public access road, we would definitely return for another stay, and might do so anyway if we're lucky enough to be able to!
Magical Place...do not hesitate!
We just come back from Nantucket. This has not been our first trip to the island. We have stayed before in town hotels, at Madaket and in the Sconset Village. This has been so for our most favorite place. A magical Place. With lots of privacy and Nantucket ambiance. Exactly what we need it and were looking for. Will definitely be back if Holly will have us...
The pictures of the house doesn't do it justice. The house is beautiful! Well designed, specious, clean, outfitted in whatever you might need. Beech chairs, umbrella, boogie boards, lobster utensils, towels, etc. All you need is a good book and a bottle of vino! It is also adjacent to less known local beach that allows dogs. It is a hidden gem...If you are considering staying on Nantucket and want quality, space and tranquility...Holly's house should be your house :o)
Great location and beautiful view of ocean
If we could have stayed longer, we would have!
This house far exceeded our expectations and we could not be happier with our decision to stay at this property. As mentioned in the title, If we could’ve extended our trip we would have without hesitation. The views from the deck are incredible and the layout is open and airy. You instantly feel as though you are at the beach upon pulling up to the house. While it is a bit further out from town, we loved the quietness and had no complaints about the drive. Beach access is a stones throw away and was an absolutely beautiful spot. We can only hope we have the opportunity to rent this house again in the future.
Beautiful beachfront house
This place was GREAT! Plenty of room, but not too huge. Loved the open concept in the main area, very easy to keep warm with the gas stove centrally located (looks like a wood stove, gas fired and controlled by thermostat - not the cooking stove!! haha) TONS of morning sunlight into the big glass doors on the south side. Panoramic view looking south so you get to see the sunrise as well as the sunset. Great place in the fall, so I bet its incredible in the summer. Holly was incredibly accommodating and responsive. The place was perfect when I got there. If I have to come out for an extended stay again next year, this is the first place I'm checking for availability!
A Dream Come True!
I have always wanted to stay at a beach front cottage and had the opportunity to rent this wonderful place, for three weeks, while renovations were being done on my home.
The timing was mid October through first week of November and the weather went from stormy to warm and wonderful! Exciting to watch the ocean change with the wind and I loved walking the area......literally, having it all to myself. Just beautiful and beyond relaxing!
Inside, everything is there! New appliances, comfy furniture and beds. Kitchen is thoughtfully
stocked, too, from spices, to tableware, small appliances, trays,......everything!
So, if you are looking for a wonderful stay, for yourself or your family, I highly recommend this home. The owner, Holly, is quick to respond to any questions you might have. The TV
didn't work, one night, (I had pushed a wrong button....) and the repair man, showed me how to manage remote, almost immediately.
I live on Nantucket but I never had visited Madequecham, because it's not one of the more popular and touristy beach areas. I understand from friends, that the beach here, is probably the most beautiful on the island. I agree!!!
Thank you, Holly, for sharing your home and creating such wonderful memories, for me!
