Great House - So great I keep going back

  • 5 of 5

I've had the pleasure of staying at the Monkey Barrel on more than one occasion over several different summers. It's centrally located on the island that makes for easy access to Surfside Beach on the south side of Nantucket (by the bike path or a short cab ride) and easy walk into town for a night out. The house is gorgeous, recently renovated with high end appliances/outdoor deck and high end gas grill, and of course, the HOT TUB! Bedrooms on three separate floors and a sitting area upstairs gives people privacy to relax (or god forbid have to escape to do some work while on vacation). Kitchen is fully equipped with pots, pans, knives, grilling utensils and so on if you like to stay in and cook as a group. I'm sure I'll be back when I can!

Beautiful house, central location for all ACK fun

  • 5 of 5

The Monkey Barrel is a barrel of fun big enough to accommodate a large group. The house has a renovated kitchen, it's tastefully decorated, well-maintained, and clean. Spacious backyard has an amazing grill, and there is a hot tub! The lovely downtown area of the island and the beautiful beaches are a nice walk, or short cab or bike ride, away. This was not my not my first stay at the Monkey Barrel and hopefully won't be my last.

We had a large group so finding something with enough space was key and this was the perfect fit!

Beds were comfy, deck and hot tub were great!! It's a little far from town for walking so we ended up renting jeeps which made the stay that much more comfortable. We will def consider this house for our next Nantucket stay!

Amazing Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Our family just spent the most incredible week at the Monkey Barrel. The home was exactly as described, maybe even more beautiful in-person. We had 11 people total at the home. 4 adults, 7 children (ages 5-16).and our dog Jackson.

Everything in the house was top of the line. It had a beautiful "beachy" feel and every amenity we could have wanted was included (the A/C was very much appreciated given the hot weather we had all week). We were so pleasantly surprised at how cozy the beach towels were and that the beach chairs were comfy. We took a risk leaving all that stuff at home and it truly paid off and made our packing a lot easier!

The location of the home was also perfect for us. The kids could ride their bikes to the beach or to town - which we did every day. Also there were a couple of athletic fields right next door which were amazing - they must have played over 50 games of whiffle ball.

Honestly I cannot say enough about this place. It was an absolutely beautiful and comfortable home. There could not have been a better "barrel" to house all of our little monkeys.
