Wonderful space for a big family!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Wonderful property.....only 2 days to enjoy

  • 4 of 5

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.

Monkey Barrel

  • 5 of 5

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..........

Beautiful place very well laid out.

  • 5 of 5

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.

The PERFECT Nantucket Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

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.
