Beautiful upstairs apt in an incredibly centrally and well-located row house. Bonus was the view from the roof walk, which guests have access to. Great spot!
We a perfectly lovely stay at John and Diana's suite in Nantucket. The suite itself is just as described in the listing. The hosts were outstanding in every respect. They were in touch with us from the reservation through confirmation, and arrival. The location of the home is wonderful, easy to find and just down the street from the main drags in Nantucket. We were only able to stay one night, but would definitely go back. Thanks!
We felt most welcomed at John and Diana's. We felt like old friends who had come for a visit. The listing was very accurate, and our room was charming, cozy and pleasant. The views from one of the bedrooms and the roof walk are amazing.
John and Diana have a lovely historic home in Nantucket that was perfect for our stay. Unfortunately we did not have a chance to meet Diana, but John made arriving in Nantucket stress free and he was waiting for us when we arrived. Upon our arrival he made us feel very welcome. The private suite is cozy and gives guests access to the most incredible rooftop terrace which gave us a birds eye view of the harbor. John was a very gracious host and we would recommend John and Diana's home for your next visit to Nantucket. We are already talking about going back to visit.
For our first trip to Nantucket we stayed at a great home. The hosts were very welcoming and gave us good tips for tours and restaurants. We loved having so much space for a week long stay and the view from our rooms and the rooftop were the best I have ever seen. The location of this home was perfect so we could walk anywhere we wanted to go and we didn't need a car. We hope to return someday and we would definitely stay here again!!
Diana and John were great hosts and they have a lovely historic home with beautiful views. We had a great time at their home and in Nantucket. We did lots of walking and biking and swimming.
There were 3 of us so it was great to have our own space on on top floor and have use of "widow's walk." Thank you to John and Diana for a great stay.
