About John Merson

Why John Merson chose Nantucket

After purchasing this home in 2004, we moved it 100 feet back from the ocean and completed a thorough renovation of the interior and exterior.

Beautiful house with amazing ocean views

A touch of modern

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying in this home and our host John could not have been more accommodating! The home is unique in the area as it has a much more modern feel to it than most in Sconset. Loved hearing the roar of the surf right outside our windows at night.

Airy, spacious, immaculate home with sweeping views of ocean.

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect vacation home for our large family with the quintessential Nantucket feel of being in the middle of the ocean. We will be back! Many thanks to John for his attentiveness. Kathyn and Chalmer Taylor and family.

Perfect weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The house was so lovely and fully equipped with everything we could ever want - towels, sheets, beach chairs and an umbrella, cooler, etc. John was very nice and accommodating about check-in and check-out times as well as helpful with household items. We were right on the beach with a beautiful view and could not have asked for anything better!

Sconset Bluff Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

We fumbled to find an alternate place to stay when forced out of our chosen property at the last minute. Wow, what a happy accident! The house is as beautiful as the photos, and the owner was extremely proactive and accommodating. And a Property Manager to call in case anything went amiss!

Views were beautiful, even during the Nor'easter that blew through for a few days shutting down ferry service to and from the island...didn't matter from this place. We made soup and enjoyed Mother Nature's show. Kitchen up to date with good cookware and appliances. Great walks along the Sconset Bluff down to the beach and through the charming town. Easy stroll to Sankaty Lighthouse which was open for tours and climbs to the top.

We have rented several houses on Nantucket, been coming here for over 40 years, but this one is definitely our new favorite. We cannot recommend this property highly enough. We look forward to returning many times...And our Security Deposit was returned the day after we left...well done John! Many, many thanks. And thanks for taking Maddie our Black Lab as well...You saved our vacation!
