The 'Sconset Market has a variety of groceries and also bakery items. Their special attraction is their selection of ice cream. The beach is a short walk away. 'Sconset is served by bike paths for those who wish to venture out and explore the island. The Siasconset Historic Trust has created a nice park at the historic Siaconset Lighthouse about a mile to the north.

A home with true Sconset charm

  • 5 of 5

In the heart of Sconset on a quaint street with amazing Atlantic ocean views. There are many places to walk and see the historic cottages and beautiful gardens. The shuttle into town is a short walk, as is Sconset beach. The amenities were as described and the communication from the owners was clear and easy. There was plenty of space in the house. My favorite space for morning coffee was the front porch- shady and green watching the town wake up.

Absolutely Fantastic

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here in August and have to say we had a blast. The house is very spacious and open. Great location, just a few minute walk to the beach and to Siasconset Market. We had six adults in our group and everyone had a great time. Great views from back bedroom...we woke up to a full ocean view every morning, you can't beat it. The owners were great and the house was very clean. You won't find a better value in Siasconset. We can't wait to return.

A terrific location and a great value

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have stayed at Nonantum for each of the past three summers. Without exception, our experience has been excellent. The location in 'Sconset could not be better -- just a few minutes walk to both the beach and the village center. The owners are easy to deal with and keep the property in good shape year to year. For larger parties in particular (we typically have 9 people), this is one of the better values in 'Sconset.
