Great house close to town

  • 5 of 5

Great updated Nantucket house close to town. The owner was very helpful and communicative. We were a group of four adults and two children and the house was perfectly sized for us. We would happily stay here again.

We had the best time. Walked into town from the house, hung out on back patio, did laundry in house. Beds were incredibly comfortable and bathrooms were great!
