Approach with caution.
For context, this reviewer rents two or three properties a year at around the price point of this property. Overwhelmingly the experiences are positive, this one was less so.
The house itself is well located on the outskirts of the town of Nantucket. Originally a modest salt box, it has been converted to accommodate as many rental tenets as possible by digging the foundation deeper and turning the basement into four, cramped, dark, cold (<64F when upstairs 72F ) bedrooms.
Some of the downstairs bedrooms have trundle beds that are difficult to use as the size of the rooms does not allow them to be fully deployed.
Similarly, the layout of the rest of this 2200 sq ft house is unfortunate (The front door can’t be used as a couch blocks it from fully opening) and spaces are cramped.
There are some higher end touches from the renovation but the underlying build quality of the spaces is shoddy. Countertops are granite, but the cabinetry is pressboard and plastic, overhead lighting is harsh without dimmers, some towel bars are noticeably out of level, some bed frames wobble severely, some of the taping is rough. This is not the quality one expects at this price point.
However, the biggest problem is that fire alarms can trigger in the middle of the night when humidity is high. Like us you may find your group awaked at 3, 4 then 5am grabbing children and running from house. Like us the next day you might find yourself dazed, cross, and wondering if a sleeping bag on the beach might be a better choice for the coming evening.
Owner interactions were strange. The lease was e-mailed as an old Adobe file that could not be filled out digitally, and was dated 2017 for a 2019 rental. Instructions were to print the file, cross out the dates on the lease with a pen and then write in the correct dates in by hand. After that, fill out the rest of the lease by hand then make a PDF of the lease by taking pictures of it, print two copies and mail one back. Huh?
Also odd was communication with the owner prior to arrival requesting decision on the amount of cleaning time to book. This mattered because the owner charges hundred dollars/hr for cleaning but if you tell him how much cleaning you'd like in advance, he will sell you cleaning at sixty-five dollars/hr.
Finally, the rental is plagued more than the usual VRBO add on fees. Expect to ultimately pay about 35% greater than the quoted rate.
Hope this helps, best with your travels!
Great spot for lots of guests!
Honestly the overall experience was amazing. The house is VERY equipped to have multiple people there with regards to the # of towels, kitchen accessories and bathrooms. The photos on the website are tough to really gauge how the property actually looks but it is very nice!! The contract process is a bit of a pain but it all worked out perfectly and it was a great spot to have our getaway girls weekend :).
Location, location, location
This house was in the perfect location for our mixed age group of 12, with a well-equipped kitchen and beautiful living space with plenty of room to spread out. Some in the group liked to walk downtown to The Hub for coffee, while others hopped on bikes and road down the bike path to Surfside Beach, only a few miles away. We heard that Downyflake has the best breakfast (a half mile away) but we never did make it there. The caretaker was easy to contact to help with minor issues like a loose doorknob or lightbulb replacement. The weather was perfect except perhaps for the high humidity, which made the basement rooms damp, even with the humidifiers running. But all in all, a great place for a family vacation.
Thanks so much Gayle and for providing all the detail for future renters, love to have you back! :)
Perfect for large gatherings and extremely convenient near town, restaraunts, and transportation.
The house was perfect for my 30th birthday celebration on Nantucket. Friends and family had a great time and slept comfortably. The house rules are very strict so be sure to have someone responsible in the group who will read through them thoroughly and organize a proper clean/laundry run for the last day. We managed ok since everyone pitched in.
Thanks very much Carolyn, happy bday again, and love to have you back! :) Note* - For future renters, the island has a strict recycling/trash separation program so everyone on the island has to separate trash from recycling and even the recycling into separate bags of paper/cardboard vs. glass vs. metal vs. plastic etc. We provide separate recycling bins in the kitchen and outside to help make it as easy as possible for our renters. :) Also, cleaning is by the hour to make it fair to everyone and we can get discounted cleaning rate for advanced purchase/scheduling to make it easy and stress free for you. :)
