"I have been coming to Nantucket for 30 years, and was thrilled to be able to rent the Firehouse condo. The location is perfect - walk out the door and you are in the heart of downtown. Everything is truly within walking distance - shopping, restaurants, beaches, etc. There's even a bakery directly across the street, as well.
The condo is located above a lovely retail shop on the second and third floor of the building. The unit is beautifully decorated, and has a nice layout. There were three of us staying there this time around, and there was ample room for us. I stayed in the master suite on the third floor, which has a super comfortable king sized bed, a TV, sitting area, laundry, and a large master bathroom. My friends stayed in the twin bed room on the main floor, which had a bathroom right outside their room. We all commented about how comfortable the beds were, and the living room was lovely, too, with comfy seating and a TV. We loved being able to cook meals in the kitchen when we weren't dining out, and eat in the dining room or on the little deck off the kitchen. The kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans, a blender, taster, coffeemaker, etc. The bathrooms had plush towels, hairdryers, and robes for guests, too. Firehouse is bright with lots of windows and skylights. There was also a small office with a desk and router (wifi) and ample plugs for laptops, chargers, etc., which I found most useful since I had to do some work while I was there during the week. There is no need for a car here, but if you do need transportation, there's the WAVE (public bus), taxis, and UBER. We found ourselves walking everywhere, though - to the beach, great restaurants, out for coffee and cold-pressed juice, and we were even able to walk to the grocery store. I just left the island yesterday, and I am already dreaming about coming back. The owner and the management company were a pleasure to deal with. My friends and I LOVED staying here, and we will more than likely rent the Firehouse again, if it's available next year!"
