About The Owner

We are a family with four children, who often travel with grandparents or another guest.

Why The Owner chose Nantucket Island

Nantucket is a wonderful family place, great for gourmet food and peaceful vacations too. The waterfront and beach are amazing, and the people are welcoming and always interesting.

What makes this house unique

Quiet sunsets, private yard and patio. Close enough to town for walks, and yet far enough for privacy. We have had parties on the deck, crab races,and wonderful gatherings with friends. A great place for a weekend or reunion.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"The kitchen was superbly supplied allowing us to prepare any and all locally provided sea food and fresh vegetables."

A true home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

My little boy and I had an unforgettable vacation in this peaceful haven. The serene surroundings in this neighborhood made us feel like we were coming home. The house was very spacious inside, and the outdoors was perfect for entertaining, sunbathing, playing ball, napping, etc...The sounds of nature greeted us every morning and we truly appreciated the serenity that being next to conservation land affords. We loved the ode to island history and local life that was incorporated in the decor of the home. It was also clean and well appointed. We come to Nantucket every year all the way from southern California. It surely has been a blessing to be able to find a true home away from home in this property, and look forward to our return to this peaceful haven.

One of our best weeks on ACK!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four with two young boys had a wonderful time on Nantucket at this home. We have rented all over the island and we loved this location, their yard and proximity to town and bike paths. We rode our bikes to different beaches each day and walked or cycled to town. Dinners on the deck while the boys ran around the yard created lots of wonderful memories. We hope to return soon!

Best family stay on Nantucket!

  • 5 of 5

Our family has made a tradition of going to Stroll for many years. We have stayed at a few different properties and this home was by far the best accommodation we have ever had! Karen was a pleasure to deal with and the home is ideal for families. There is plenty of room for everyone to have their own space, the grounds and views are spectacular, and the house just feels like home!

Wonderful rental property on Nantucket

  • 5 of 5

We brought our family to this rental on Meadow Lane in Nantucket. We've rented for over 10 years on Nantucket, and know the island well. This is our favorite rental for our family among the 7 or 8 different properties we've rented through the years.

The property is close enough for walking to town easily. We rode bikes (Youngs Rental) for the week, but often walked in to town for dinner, shopping or evening strolls. The biking is very accessible for easy rides to the beach, town or favorite spots.

We love the location of this property as it's "just right" for about everything: close to town for walking without being too close for noise or traffic; close to best beaches (Dionnis, Steps, Childrens, Surfside) without being too far out or too expensive for a waterfront rental; plenty of space for Nantucket evenings on the spacious porch with no close neighbors like many intown rentals we've had through the years.

Appliances, linens, lobster pot (mandatory on Nantucket) were all super with no issues or concerns.

The house has plenty of comfortable easy chairs both inside and out for our family with two teenagers.

No issues with owners or transactions - we've occasionally encountered some difficult interactions with owners in other rentals through the years; but everything was smooth here (thanks VRBO!).

The Blackberry bushes were in bloom during the week we rented - this was a special treat for ice cream in the evening and pancakes in the morning.

Bottomline: we love this house for a family rental and plan to return with family or for a romantic getaway this fall - everything was perfect for our needs!

lovely, comfortable home-away-from-home

  • 5 of 5

Calm, enjoyable indoors & outdoors. Special comfort features I liked: kitchen well supplied; handy laundry machines; outdoor shower: so nice after the beach!

The house is so spacious, as is the front & back yards. I especially liked being able to walk to historic places, as well as the movie house, & eating places. A bus stops near enough to make the way "home" easy, if I get tired of walking.
