About Melanie Kotalac

The owner is a 9th generation Nantucketer, a builder and fisherman by trade.

Why Melanie Kotalac chose Nantucket

The owner built this house in 1982. Custom wood work has been completely renovated in the winter of 2017/2018. New floors have been installed in the main living space as well. New mattresses purchased in the Fall of 2017.

What makes this house unique

privacy, beautiful location, it is a special place, reminiscent of an older Nantucket cottage feel. The views are outstanding, both sunrise and sunset can be seen from every room in the house, as well as the sound of the ocean.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a lovely vacation! The house, the view, and the weather made for a wonterful 2 weeks! Between the pond and the ocean we were spoiled-especially Oscar (our golden retriever) He loves to swim! We loved sitting on the deck and watching the birds. The sun casts such a beautiful glow all around near sunset!

One of the Best Vacation Weeks Ever!

  • 5 of 5

Two couples went up and had the house without children. We spent our mornings taking long bike hikes along the extensive bike paths that the island offers. Sometimes we would eat lunch out along our journey and other days we would eat back at the house. Afternoons were for swims at the beautiful south shore beach, and then back to the house to sit on the awesome porch overlooking the freshwater Miacomet pond and enjoying the sunsets with a cocktail. One of the best things about this house is that you are close to the market and town for eating but you feel like you are in the middle of nowhere, and it has a well equipped kitchen for making delicious dinners. The listing was accurate regarding the location. The photos were accurate. The property was clean and well maintained. The owner was helpful in answering our questions and responding to any issues, such as equipment that had been removed by previous tenants. I would definitely recommend this property to a friend or relative. Nearby you would find the best beaches in Nantucket, a beautiful freshwater pond, kayaks, The Cisco Brewery, Bike Paths, and many excellent restaurants in town if you want to go out to eat. It doesn't get much better than this for escaping from the world!
