My hosts John and Diana were very responsive and defined their flexibility when I needed to rebook my dates. They checked in to validate arrival/departure logistics and upon arrival had information and tips about getting around and the features in the apartment. The accommodations were warm, cozy and charming. Really comfortable and beautiful views surrounding and from the roofwalk. Diana and John are so friendly, and easy going I felt very comfortable staying in their home and sharing in some conversation along the way. I look forward to staying in their great location on Orange St. again!

We had a blast at John and Diana's home. It's centrally located so everything was in walking distance including restaurants, shopping, the children's beach, and bike rentals. We visited with our 10 month old son and he also had a blast. The view from the top of the house is amazing...we sat up there quite a bit while the baby slept. John and Diana were very helpful with recommendations. We can't wait to visit again!

We had such a great time at John and Diana's Nantucket getaway. They were exceptionally knowledgeable about the island and were wonderful hosts. The roof walk is not to be missed. The view is worth every penny. Do not miss it. We also enjoyed the delicious continental breakfasts which hit the spot. John also went above and beyond to make sure we got to our departing ferry successfully and we really appreciated it. If you're looking for a place to stay on Nantucket we couldn't recommend John and Diana's place more.

This is a beautifully decorated top floor suite in an impressive and pretty house in the heart of town and with panoramic views over the harbour. Comfortable beds with elegant bed linen and a row of vibrant geraniums on the window ledge. John and Diana are very helpful - with a plethora of local knowledge on restaurants and leisure pursuits. There is a modern high definition television with DVD player and a music system and plenty of storage in each of the bedrooms.

John and Diana were very welcoming! They were accommodating about our early arrival. John provided a tour of the space, including the amazing widows walk with incredible views! The location was perfect, quick walk to town!

We had a great stay. The location was great and the suite was completely as described, perfect for the 3 of us. The jewel in the crown was the roof top and we loved sipping wine and watching the harbor in the evening. It was very good value considering how expensive Nantucket has become. John was a great host.

Love Nantucket, music, old movies, fishing, boating and cooking. Active in my church and communities. As a host, I can be a friend or just the landlord, or anything in between-it's really up to the guest.
