The property was perfect, offering all one needs in a vacation rental from beach chairs to bicycles!
As the name denotes, this house is truly a Special Place, situated in a quiet neighborhood, but close to great ocean beaches in Madaket, and Sound beaches within walking distance. Mark is the best host, very quick to respond to inquiries, and offering us recommendations from fine dining (Oron Mor - fantastic!) to late afternoon fun at Cisco Brewery (a blast - try the GRIPAH!) and where to shop (Sayles for fish & lobster and Bartlett Farms). The house has everything you need and more to enjoy a great ACK vacation. We will be back!
Glad you enjoyed your stay on the Grey Lady. Happy to have you back next year.
Had a great vacation - house was nice and loved the short walk to the beach
Had a great vacation- the house was nice and we loved the short walk to the beach!
Perfect rental for families!
We loved our stay here. The house is comfortable, spacious, clean, and well stocked with everything needed. Our kids (age 9 and 12) loved access to the bunk beds, bikes, many board games, WiFi, and cable TV. The kitchen had all of the supplies we needed, and bathrooms had plenty of towels. It was nice to be able to do laundry. We found the location to be perfect—a short 5 minute walk to the bus stop. We could easily take the bus to town, and through the bus we had access to Madaket Beach, Jetties Beach, Surfside Beach, and Sconset. We went to all, but found Surfside to be our favorite! It is also about a 15 minute walk to 40th Pole Beach. Renters have access to a variety of bikes, beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, etc. The kids loved the short walk/bike ride to Long Pond to try to catch turtles. The owner, Mark, is extremely helpful and easy to work with. He did everything he could to make this a perfect vacation. It is evident that he enjoys giving others the opportunity to get to know the island that he loves. We were sad to leave, and hope to return again!
So glad you enjoyed your visit. Thank you for your kind words.....
We loved the house, backyard and the neighborhood.
The house was great and Mark checked in a few times to make sure we had everything we needed.
Thank you. I am glad you enjoyed your stay.
Recently rented this house for a week to complete a large job on Nantucket. Location was perfect house had everything we needed . Unfortunately working got in the way of enjoying this location as much as we would have liked. Great spot, very quiet. Had everything our crew needed for the week
Stocked with everything you need for a summer stay in Nantucket. Had air units in each room, cleaning and laundry supplies, paper towels and toilet paper, tons of bikes, balls, tennis rackets, boogie boards and other beach toys, beach towels and chairs, ice chests... the house was a little cluttery and mildewy, but overall was a nice place to stay in a very quiet neighborhood with a bus stop close by if you don't have a car. Took us about 15-20 minutes to walk to 40th pole beach from the house which we thought was the best beach on the island. The water was playable for kids there instead of most of the beaches where big waves crash right on the shore and the sand was soft and you can drive your 4X4 vehicle onto the beach there as well so it's easy to unload beach gear.
Thank you for the review. I am glad you had a good time!
