We had a perfect experience staying at this property. We had 4 adults and tons of space - we definitely could have fit more people very comfortably! (there was an extra twin bed in the basement that was not listed) The house itself was charming, spacious, very clean and had just the right amount of modern updates (new kitchen appliances, counters, etc.). The house came with everything you could think of from beach chairs, beach bags, beach towels, high speed WiFi, smart TVs, etc. The hosts were extremely responsive throughout the booking process and during our stay. The owners live right next door and were so kind as to drop off extra charcoal for our BBQ since it was sold out everywhere else on the island. Last but not least, the location was very ideal! Tucked away on a lovely, quiet street, 10 min walk from the center of town, 5-7 min walk from Stop & Shop and great mid-island restaurants. Highly recommend staying here, we have zero complaints and hope to be back again!
Welcoming owners. Charming house. Convenient location on quiet street.. Highly satisfied.
Jim and Barbra were incredibly responsive, kind and accommodating. The check in and check out process cannot be any easier. The house is beautiful and all amenities were up to date. The back yard and porch are very nice as well. The house is just a short walk from down town and the ferries. Overall a great experience!
We had a wonderful time walking around the island and relaxing in a beautiful home close to everything.
Communication with Barbara & Jim prior to arrival was fantastic! Jim greeted us with great warmth & care! There was more than enough room for our family of 6 adults & 2 young children! The house has everything you need. Groceries etc can be found at a very close by Stop & Shop! Back street is within walking distance to so much of Nantucket’s beauty! Thank you Barbara & Jim!
The house was clean, comfortable and charming. The owners incredibly kind and helpful working around the hurricane so we could get on the island for a family wedding. Was a wonderful weekend. Hope to come back.
We had a wonderful stay on Back St. Easy walk to town and close to everything needed to have a great time on Nantucket! Barb and Jim were very accommodating and available to answer any questions, etc. We especially loved the kitchen and the outdoor shower! Thanks for sharing your house with us!
Yard and house were perfect for our family of 5 including three small children. Walk to town quick on a nice large sidewalk. Also 10 minute walk to the big Stop and Shop which was convenient and two minutes to Cumberland Farms. House was spotless and had all the amenities we needed for our stay. We loved the use of the outdoor shower for the kids after the beach. It was a 10 minute walk to a small harbor beach that was perfect for our young children. The yard was nice and big for the kids to burn off some energy.
Our stay at Jim and Barbara's house was lovely. The house exceeded our expectations and was very comfortable for our party of 6. Jim and Barbara were responsive and very accommodating to our travel schedule. The house is adorable and if we're back in Nantucket in the future, we would definitely stay again.
Our first VRBO experience was a terrific success! We had a great stay in this charming house, conveniently located between Pleasant and Orange Streets just outside of town. House and gardens are meticulously maintained; the backyard was a perfect venue for the bocce balls we brought along. And the deck outside the kitchen door was a great spot to enjoy a second morning cup of coffee or cocktail before dinner. The house has all the necessities, from Wi-Fi and flat screens to barbecue grille and beach chairs. The house is both cozy and light and airy. We had a party of seven which the house slept very comfortably. Ample towels and comfortable beds compete the picture. Barbara was very hospitable, giving us good travel recommendations and accommodating our late night arrival. Communication with her was timely and helpful. We will be back!
14 Back is a charming Nantucket home. It is located on a quiet street within easy walking distance of Main Street. It has a lovely yard and lots of privacy. The rooms are bright and cheerful and everything you need for a relaxing vacation is provided. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need to prepare a gourmet dinner. The owners are very helpful and will cater to your every need. Best deal on Nantucket.
My friends and I stayed in this beautiful bungalow in October and had the most wonderful time, despite the uncooperative weather! Barbara and Jim were incredibly helpful before and throughout our stay, the house had everything that we needed, and the location was perfect. I'd highly recommend this property to anyone looking to visit Nantucket!
This lovely in town property was perfect for our July holiday. Beautifully maintained. The yard is a backyard oasis with a deck for morning coffee, or evening cocktails. Private outdoor shower perfect for your return from the beach. The house is both, spacious and comfortable. The owners have thought of everything to make your island stay memorable. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us.
This house is perfect for a weekend getaway or longer! It is very clean and had everything we needed. The location is great as it is easy to get to bike routes and town. Barbara was so helpful and made it the perfect weekend for us!
Stayed here with 7 girls for a relaxing bachelorette weekend. The house was perfect! It was spacious and the location to town was perfect! Could not reccomend it more!!
We did a girls weekend and had a great stay at this property. It was very clean and the perfect location! Thank you and we'll be back.
This is our second year renting this home. The owners, who live next door, are accommodating and helpful, when needed. Living Room provides a great area for reading, relaxing, playing board games, and having conversation. There are 2 media areas, however no DVD players. Comfortable beds. 2 upstairs bedrms share full bath. Kitchen is bright and spacious. Location can't be beat... quiet street. Walk to town and convenient to mid-island grocery, etc. Jacuzzi tub downstairs is a treat, as well as, out door spacious, private shower. Lovely yard with charcoal grill. Nice to have beach towels, chairs, toys and boogie boards available. You will be pleasantly surprised and enjoy your stay in this lovely house.
This is a beautifully restored house. All appliances are new and the interior is completely renovated and the decor is very tasteful. It is exceptionally clean and comfortable. We were two families a total of eight (four kids) and it worked great for us. Although the house accommodates ten there are only three bedrooms and the other two beds are pull out couches. One room in the basement with a king size bed and a sofa bed in the adjoining room with a large screen tv worked well for one family. There is also a great bathroom and an excellent washer dryer. Upstairs both bedrooms have queen size beds and are connected by a smaller bathroom and tv room. This worked well for the other family. The kitchen is well equipped and great to cook in. You can cook a gourmet meal. The family room and dining room are very comfortable and we had many lovely family dinners around the table. There is air conditioning in all the bedrooms and we were never too hot in the rest of the house. The garden is perfect for kids and the deck was a great place for coffee in the morning or to sit and chat during evenings. Back street is a relatively quiet street so nice for kids to bike up and down on. Although not in the center of town the house is a 5 minute bike ride or 15-20 min walk to the pier. 2 minutes down the hill is a coffee breakfast place and a small convenience store. We had a car (and would recommend having one) and then you could pick up groceries easily at the huge Stop & Shop 2 minutes away, go to several good restaurants in the area and also drive out to any of the beaches with all the gear and little kids. Bikes of course are a must and we really took advantage as you could easily get onto all bike trails from Back Street. Jim and Barbara, the owners, live next door and are lovely. They were also extremely helpful and responsive if we had any questions and at the same time they were also extremely respectful of our time in their house. Our only regret is that we won't be going to Nantucket this year but we hope to be able to rent this house again for the following summer.
The house has been recently redecorated and remodeled and is in very good shape and very clean. The kitchen and living/dining room have lots of windows and are nice and bright. The back deck is ideal for outdoor entertaining, and the neighborhood is quiet but welcoming. It's just minutes from town and grocery shopping, and has off-street parking. We really enjoyed our stay here, and the owners couldn't have been more helpful. We hope to stay here again.
