Property description

A relaxing seaside vacation awaits you at Frankie Starlight, a cozy 3 bedroom cottage in Madaket!

Experience the best of the West end of Nantucket from this ideally located home. Beautiful Madaket beach is a 2 minute walk down the street, and an NRTA shuttle stop is around the corner. With serene water views over Hither Creek out to Nantucket Sound, this home rental is your perfect destination spring, summer, or fall! Away from at all, the boundless moonlit sky will amaze you at night.

Savor the famous Madaket sunset from an Adirondack chair on the back deck. At night, the calming sounds of waves crashing ashore will lull you to sleep. The kitchen opens into a cozy family room with a wood-burning fireplace, perfect for those cool Nantucket nights. There’s cable TV, DVD, and a stereo system for family enjoyment. The house has 2 spacious and sunny bedrooms featuring splendid water views. Attached to each bedroom is a private bath. There is a separate guest cottage with a Queen bed and private bathroom.

Additional amenities include wireless hi-speed internet, washer, dryer, parlor games, beach chairs. The backyard is equipped with four Adirondack chairs, a picnic table, and charcoal grill: perfect to enjoy a relaxed family dinner outside. A well-behaved pet is welcome, but no smoking, please, inside the house.

It's only a three minute walk to one of Nantucket's favorite restaruants, Madaket Millie's, offering ocean-view dining and serving some of the best food on the island. The take-out window is open late for Ice-cream and dinner, with outdoor dining. Right along side is the best little general store offering supplies, ice cream, wine and beer, ice and just about anything else you need to avoid a trip to the busy town.

Stop at the grocery store when you arrive, load up, and park your car in our driveway. Chances are you won't need to get in it until you leave!

Of all the locations on island, Madaket is known to have retained the old world feel perfect for a family that wants to relax, walk and ride bicycles to the country's best beaches and to simply be together.

Don't forget to take the beach cart, loaded with your picnic supplies and a bottle of wine, to the beach at the end of the day to watch the sunset into the water each night. The sky will be ablaze. You will see that other happy families arrive to do the same.

Quiet and simple, this cottage is a perfect home-base to explore the very best of one of the best Islands in the world.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2005

About: We are a large family (6 children and 2 dogs) from Westport Connecticut. Frank first came to Nantucket in the late 1970's taking the slow ferry across Nantucket sound. Nantucket emerged from the fog, a long landscape of boats, quaint houses, church steeple's and beaches: its enchantment remains. Water has always been a part of our lives and while Nantucket is a long way from our main home in Westport there is nothing quite like the ferry, the drive to Madaket and finally the walk to the beach. Our kids love everything about it. We selected Madaket because it is quite, peaceful, private and the house has water views. It's also close to amenities and safe for the little ones who can swim (with floaties) in the shallows off the beach in the quiet waters of Smith Point. Some of us like the surf at what the kids call "big wave beach" just down the road. We hope you will enjoy the house and make memories that continue to build the amazing energy of the Starlight Cottage.

Why Madaket, Nantucket, MA, USA:
We had two homes on the island, one on Cliff Road and this house. We held them both so we could decide which we loved the most. After a family vote, Madaket remained. The population of Nantucket soars in the summer, something like from an off-season count of 10,000 swelling to over 60,000 in the season. In town becomes a disney world experience compounded with traffic and day trippers and shoppers. It's fun to be part of that for a day or two, but its the beach experience and quite that we wanted.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our Madaket is the quintessential beach house close to both beach and bay, overlooking the gorgeous sunsets. We have a large family with little and big kids. We chose this house so that we would please every person in the house (not easy), and it does. The big kids head to the cottage and the little ones get the guest room across from the master bedroom in the main house. The guest room bed has two options: a california king or a twin bed set up. Kids that aren't old enough to drive can safely walk to the bus, which comes ever half hour, and ride to town for two bucks each way. They love the autonomy, and Nantucket is the safest inhabited island in America, probably in the world. The little kids love the yard and the deck, the kids beach, the ice cream and candy at what they call "down town" - the general store at Madaket Millie's. We all love the privacy of the location, the outdoor shower, the bikes, the beach cart and the sunsets. At night, the landscape transforms to a canopy of stars that fascinate the young and the old alike. We rest here and get closer to each other. And when we are close enough we can find places to be alone - a bike ride, a walk to the beach with the lab, or the front or back porch. It's not perfect, but the feeling we get while we are here is as good as it gets for us.
