"I loved my stay at this pretty house!" Kylee, Richmond, VA
"The house was perfect and felt like home!" Dawn Greene and the Greene family
Please note that this is a vacation rental. We generally do not do rentals for the entire season. When requesting rental dates please only input the dates you really want to stay. Please check the calendar, if dates are blocked then that means they really are unavailable.
We provide high quality linens, beds, towels, kitchen appliances, cookware and serviceware and glassware. We do not want to lock these away from you for safe keeping, we'd rather you enjoy using them. We trust that you use these as if they were your own, please respect them!
Absolutely no smoking in the house and please no candles or open flame.
Of course we expect you to have fun and enjoy yourselves and your group, but our house is located in a residential area. Our neighbors (and police) take notice of parties quickly. Also we consider this our home, so we hope you will treat it well.
The house was adorable, with lots of room for our party of six. It is located a little out of the way, but once you get familiar with the bus system, you hardly notice that. Also, Rebecca was wonderfully flexible with us and our ferry schedule, allowing us to drop off bags before check-in and to check out a little bit late. We had a great stay!
The house has a great homely feel and is very well equipped throughout.
Our hosts were readily contactable and always available if we needed to speak to them but they kept themselves very much out of the way otherwise.
The location of the house worked very well for us as a family of 6. We walked from the airport with our luggage, which took about 5 minutes! Despite being so close to the airport, we were in no way disturbed by airport noise.
We relied on buses (frequent, with 2 stops at the end of the road heading into town) and bikes to get around (lots of easily accessible bike paths) which was easy and fun.
The local neighbourhood was quiet but friendly when we did see anyone. The road itself was also quiet and far enough away from the busy airport road to not notice the traffic at all.
We very much appreciated the garden which offered a cool shady haven during the day. It is almost completely secluded by plants and trees and has enough sunny, grassy space for the kids to play in too.
We very much enjoyed our stay.
The Macy's Lane house was excellent! The pictures online really don't do it justice, especially the backyard/patio area and open kitchen and living room on the first floor. It really is beautiful and relaxing. On top of that, Rebecca and Mike were great hosts. They were extremely responsive and accomodating, even allowing us to leave our luggage in their car while we waited for the ferry home. I hope we can go back soon!
Rebecca met me at the house and let me check in a bit early. She was super helpful, spent about 15-20 minutes with me showing me around, even helping with taxi's and bus schedule.
The house was beautiful and super affordable considering the popular summer season. There's a patio and garden in the back that was perfect for hanging out after the sun went down.
We couldn't have been luckier to find Rebecca's house. Relaxed Nantucket style, indeed. We absolutely loved it. Warm hosts and a convenient mid-island location on a quiet street.
We were three couples and children meeting from Boston, New York and London and had plenty of space, with a large private yard.
Thanks, Rebecca, for making our annual trip to the island so special.
Rebecca is a wonderful host and the house was perfect for our group. It's much more spacious than appears from the photos. The house is well stocked with practically everything you may need for a stay in Nantucket and the back yard is perfect for BBQs. Highly recommended.
Everything was great! The description and photos were very accurate. It suited our needs very well. It was clean and fully stocked. They basically had everything we could possibly need. It was a nice bike ride or 10 minutes drive from downtown. I would definitely stay there again.
