Interaction with Guests
We are a busy family with 2 small boys 9 and 10. I am certainly there to answer questions and help with any island info they need. My husband is 4th generation, born and raised here so we know the island pretty well. We are Happy to help with anything guests need. My children usually sleep in and we are not coffee drinkers, but there is a place a few minutes away Something Natural or walk into town and there are PLENTY of places. We try to meet all our guests, but we work and people on vacation here are usually not home much either so it can be tricky, but I think we have gotten to know all our guests except for two. You can certainly text me at any time with questions or concerns, I am here to help.
It is one of the most sought after streets in town, close walk to Steps Beach (a hidden gem) + other beaches in town, bike path, bus route, town and your morning walk/jog will never be dull with all the beautiful homes to look at on the Cliff.
Yes, there is a bus shuttle that will take you pretty much anywhere or taxis are readily available, but more expensive. Most people rent or bring bikes.
Other Things to Note
We do rent the entire house out for 2 weeks per summer at 30K per week. We have a 3 nt min over weekends during peak season and some holidays like Memorial Day, but the site does not allow you to be that specific.
I would just expect them to be respectful and use their own good judgement- if you think you probably should not do something, then that is probably a good gut instinct. I have been in the hospitality and house rental business a long time, but never in a situation like this so it is hard to say. If you like to sleep in just let us know so we can be extra quiet, but typically it is pretty quiet here. From time to time we may have friends over, but that I cannot predict when and we try not to disturb anyone, but usually our guests are out since there is so much going on here.
Debbie was an excellent host making our stay very comfortable. Upon arrival, together with the children Debbie nicely welcomed our family and offered our toddler boy toys to play with, which he was incredibly happy about. The room and the bathroom were impeccably clean, nicely furnished, and contained all amenities as described in the listing. The location is premium - away from noisy downtown streets, but in a short walking distance to the town center, Children's beach, several great restaurants, and sandwich/coffee shops. It was the best experience we could possibly imagine when using the AirBnB booking for the first time and for the last minute reservation. Highly recommended host.
Debbie and her wonderful family were so welcoming and our experience was more like staying at an upscale Inn rather than simply renting a room (the basement room
was great!) However, don't expect all the frills as this is just a room. The fact that your hosts are so kind and gracious is a plus not be taken for granted, but we definitely hope to be back. Alex, James and Paul
Debbie was a wonderful host.
We like to come and go without interruption, a private entrance and a clean quiet room is all we required. Perfect!
I will stay again.
Debbie was a very gracious host and her place is in a prime location. Great space too.
This was the perfect space and totally met our needs. The host was very hospitable and easy to work with!
Very quiet and clean. Wonderful hosts. I would definitely go back. Great location too.
My husband and I enjoyed our stay at Debbie's house over Labor Day weekend. The house was very clean, comfortable, and as-described. Debbie and her family were wonderful hosts; their suggestions for food and activities were all great. The house is a short walk from the ferry, the beach, and the town. Debbie was there to greet us when we arrived and she was available throughout our stay if we needed anything. Just a reminder, the room a basement apartment and while it's quiet and comfortable with a seperate entrance, it is a part of the main house and the family does stay on the premise. This didn't bother us, especially since we were out most of the time...but just FYI for future guests. We hope to visit Nantucket again and we would definitely recommend Debbie's house for anyone who is consisdering a visit to Nantucket!
