About Bill Beckett

Bill Beckett is a native of Massachusetts and Carla Kindt was born and raised in California. 3Buoys is named after their 3 sons.

Bill Beckett purchased this house in 2003

Why Bill Beckett chose Madaket

We are long-time sailors and have spent many years cruising Cape Cod and the island, but of all the harbors we have enjoyed Nantucket has always been our favorite. We love the quiet of Madaket and spend long weekends here during the off season.

What makes this house unique

What makes 3Buoys special is that you really get the feeling of being away from it all. Nantucket has a remote, beachy feel that we love and the yard is very private. Make sure you head outsie on a cloudless night. The entire Milky Way will unfold overhead. Madaket has one of the darkest skies in the US and is perfect for stargazing. And the front porch is a great place from which to watch the sunset. The outside shower is a great way to relax after a day at the beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were so impressed with the care and attention you have given to your lovely home. Everything was so crisp and clean! We loved the area and the feeling of the neighborhood.

Thank you for making this wonderful vacation for our whole family.
