Absolute Perfection

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at The Treehouse for our first visit to Nantucket and it was magical. Rarely can a rental be described as 'perfect' but this was. Everything was exactly as promised, if not better than promised in some instances. It was close enough to town to be convenient but yet totally removed when we were ready to retreat. Lauren is the most gracious hostess I've encountered and she and Bobby have not missed a single detail in making their guests comfortable. From the beach towels/chairs, to the comfy furniture and linens, to the thoughtful notes about the home and Nantucket - I promise you - they've thought of everything! Thank you Lauren & Bobby - we can't wait to return!!

P.S. Totally unrelated to the house but - Rent a Jeep!!! Although a car is not necessary, having a Jeep to take to some of the more remote parts of the island made the week especially fun for us.

The home was fantastic and secluded

  • 5 of 5

We liked the back room to relax in after long days at the beach

Kitchen was wonderful to cook in when we decided not to go out to a restaurant

The Treehouse was beautiful and extremely comfortable. My family and I enjoyed hanging out, cooking and just be together in the space. We had a short bike ride to town or took the bus from the location. The owners were quick to respond when I had a question.

Perfect place to celebrate our 10th year anniversary!

  • 5 of 5

My husband found this HomeAway gem after searching for an ideal place to celebrate our 10th year anniversary! A perfect fit for us! We escaped our busy lives for one week to shut down, reconnect, enjoy each other and explore new surroundings. The host/hostess of this lovely home made for a warm welcome and peaceful stay. Although they were close by in proximity, we were never interrupted or even saw them, or any worker, as they continued to care for their property and keep the grounds lovely. They left no stone unturned as they equipped this 'treehouse' with EVERYTHING you could think of or need. Everything that is, except a blender. We searched and searched, and came to the conclusion, there just wasn't one. In a frantic state, we contacted the owner via text, who confirmed it. We then sat back and laughed, coming to the realization that it was such a blessing that we didn't have one!! We had escaped our busy lives, blenders included, in hopes of entering into total rest. We turned it down a notch, walked to the supermarket, found everything we needed there, and decided to cook most of our meals at home, which is a passion for us! We found this home to be one of the most perfectly equipped, beautifully decorated & peaceful settings, we had ever vacationed at, tucked in, away from the hustle and bustle, but close enough if you wanted it. Everything was a bike ride, walk or bus ride away. There is shopping, nightlife, tons of beaches, touristy stuff, etc.

We explored the island during the day on our bikes that we rented. (delivered and picked up at our door!) We shopped, cooked, beached, dined out, and met and talked with locals. We found everyone so friendly AND super courteous of those bicycling. We LOVED it, hope to return, and would recommend this for couples or even singles. A great little place to retreat. Favorite restaurants for us...The Atlas, Millie's, and The boat ride and experience to Toppers! Also, we attended a wonderful service at The Summer Street Church! We enjoyed every minute of our 10th year anniversary celebration at this location. This truly had it all, except a blender.....which was perfect! Paul & Caryn

Lovely, quiet space, perfect for relaxing

  • 5 of 5

It was a lovely place, perfect for 2. It was clean and tidy and very charming. Pictures do not give it justice. The hosts were very accommodating and we would definitely stay there again. A 30 minute walk to town and 40 minutes to Surfside beach. We tried to bring in a rental car but could not get a ferry reservation 2 months prior. Uber is hit and miss for time delays and costs, but when on vacation it does not matter as much. There is a bus service every 30 minutes or so but it does not go everywhere. We had a lovely week in Nantucket, but plan your transportation accordingly.

Upscale & Private

  • 5 of 5

The owners are lovely and available to answer all of your questions pre-arrival and during. The home was well appointed and stocked. I've used VRBO in the past and had to purchase many things myself which was tedious and tiring. The owners had everything ready (early) and available for your arrival which was really appreciated after a long travel.

The house was close to everything and easily accessed from main roads. I will come back. If you love Nantucket, stay here and you'll love it more! Thank you Bobby and Lauren.
