Quaint and Roomy Island Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Moonstruck is a warm and inviting cottage a short stroll from the heart of downtown Nantucket. The house was roomy and inviting on the inside, and the sizable backyard was perfect for the kids. It's approximately a 10-15 minute walk (we had small children; without it'd be less than 10, easily) to downtown, but walk in the other direction for 10 min (again, less without kids), and you'll hit some great restaurants and a larger Stop & Shop. It's also 1/2 block from the bus stop, and we discovered on a rainy day that the bus system in Nantucket is very easy and convenient to use. The owner was responsive and promptly returned our security deposit. We had a wonderful weekend and would highly recommend Moonstruck and Nantucket to anyone looking for an island retreat!

Charming Nantucket home

  • 5 of 5

Moonstruck is the perfect place to enjoy Nantucket. Twelve minute walk into town, and a ten minute walk to the Chicken Box. We had an amazing time. The house is perfect for one couple and kids, or two couples and kids. Just a great house. We will be back

Lovely rustic Nantucket cottage

  • 4 of 5

Moonstruck is a charming home near the main town. We were a group of three women with the goal of seeing as much of Nantucket as we could fit into 2 days. With three bedrooms and 1 bath, it was fine for our group. We didn't spend too much time at the house but it had all the basics we needed. It was clean and comfortable. The home did not have AC. We were there on a particularly warm weekend. The ceiling fans were OK but the house did get very warm. The backyard was lovely and it was nice to sit outside in the afternoon.

Fabulous vacation week on Nantucket Island

  • 5 of 5

After 28 years living in the Boston area we finally went to Nantucket Island where we had an incredible week. Moonstruck was the perfect location and the perfect size house for us. Moonstruck, it's a quaint three bedroom one bathroom house five minutes walk from Stop & Shop supermarket and 10 minutes walk to the downtown shopping area. We arrived on the island at 8:30am and check in was not until 3pm but Kathy made arrangements for us to drop off our bags on the back deck which allowed us the day at the beach which was terrific. We strongly recommend Miacomet beach especially with teenagers.

Cons. I have an extra large SUV and it was quite hard to get into the driveway and open all doors, but we survived. You don't need to be famous to live in Nantucket but you certainly have to be rich very expensive.

Charming house in good location.

  • 4 of 5

Charming house in good location with a 10-15 min walk to downtown Nantucket and 10 min walk to supermarket shopping area. Kitchen was very well equipped and bedrooms were comfortable. It was a little too chilly during our October stay to spend time on the deck, but in warmer weather, the enclosed, private area with grill and fire-pit would be much appreciated. One small problem was resolved very quickly after a phone call to Kathy who was always very responsive. Thanks for a wonderful stay!
