Wonderful space for a big family!
The Monkey Barrel was the perfect home for our family get together! Excellent space for the 12 of us (8 adults, 4 children), great deck with hot tub, Viking gas grill, large table with enough chairs, and fenced in yard with great grass. The house has everything you could need, everything! Kirby and Mike are great hosts!
Thanks so much Pete for the kind review, and for treating our home like your own during your visit, as well as for providing helpful information for future guests. We look forward to you returning to our home in the future!
Wonderful property.....only 2 days to enjoy
My family and I planned our trip to Nantucket for my brother's wedding. Unfortunately due to Hurricane Jose and ferry cancellations, our family was only able to enjoy 2 out of the scheduled 4 days at the Monkey Barrel. Kirby, one of the homeowners, was easy to communicate with and dud crefit us for one nights stay, which we were most appreciative of.
This home was fully stocked with every type of utensil, appliance, glassware, dishes that you could possibly need for your vacation here. All 6 bedrooms were nicely decorated and the beds quite comfortable. The yard was definitely the entertainment spot! Built-in weber grill, refrigerator, ice maker and the cherry on top.....the hot tub! Plenty of seating and plenty of room for lawn games. We will definitely come back to the Monkey Barrel.
Glad you enjoyed your stay, even with the crazy weather! We hope you can return when you have more time to enjoy Nantucket!
This house is so great! It's a bike ride to Surfside Beach, which is one of the best beaches on the island (snack bar, lifeguards, and surfing waves). It's a bike ride to town as well as to the grocery store. The location couldn't be better. It's clean, and well cared for. Kirby is great to deal with, and provides a detailed over view of the house and the island which I referred back to several times! I hope to come back next summer.
Thanks Monkey Barrel..........
Thank you Tracey for the feedback and great review! We hope to see you and your family back again next summer as well!!!
Perfect house, perfect location!
Second time staying here and it's just perfect!
Thank you Joanne! We are so lucky to have wonderful guests like you!!! We look forward to your return.
Beautiful place very well laid out.
House is absolutely beautiful. Well maintained, clean and very accommodating for larger parties. My group of 13 had a blast and would def rent property again. The owner is super nice and easy to work with also. 5 star for sure on this one.
We really appreciate the kind words and helpful review! We hope you and your group will return soon.
The PERFECT Nantucket Vacation Home!
I can't say enough good things about the owners or the Monkey Barrel itself. Kirby was extremely responsive, organized and professional, making the stay very easy. The property is immaculate from the inside out, and is completely stocked with every accoutrement you can think of. The home was very clean, the appliances are high end, and (my personal favorite!) the Monkey Barrel has an amazing hot tub and backyard. Location is perfect as you are within short walk of 2 cafes (45 Surfside and Yummy), a bicycle rental shop, and still close to town. I am so grateful that we found this property - by FAR the best value on the island for a completely updated home with this guest capacity. Thank you Kirby and family for the wonderful hospitality and for allowing us to experience your wonderful spot.
