In Town--Walk Everywhere!

Nantucket, Massachusetts

Bula Cottage is on a tree-lined street that is perfectly situated in town: a five minute walk to some of Nantucket's best restaurants, Main Street, and the ferry; a ten minute walk to Jetties, Children's, Steps, and Brandt Point Beaches; and convenient to bike paths and the exclusive Cliff area.
Antique pine floors and a fireplace add charm to the nice-sized living room -- you can enjoy watching the large flat-screen t.v. or work a puzzle on the game table. The dining room is graced with antique pine floors and a crystal ship-shaped chandelier. The dining table will fit all eight guest comfortably. You will find our kitchen updated and equipped to handle all of your cooking needs. A half bath is situated between the dining room and kitchen. A large master bedroom with a king-sized bed and an en suite bath completes the first floor.
The second floor has three bedrooms-- two bedrooms have twin beds and one bedroom has a queen. The upstairs bathroom with toilet, sink, and shower over tub, has a washer and dryer discretely tucked away for your convenience.
Enjoy Nantucket's nice weather on the patio. There is a table with six chairs, 2 chaise lounges, and a gas grill for outdoor dining, or for relaxing with a good book.

**Also, if you are wondering about the name Bula let me explain: Bula is a word used in Fiji much like the word Aloha is used in Hawaii. Bula literally means life and is most commonly used as a greeting. Using it as a greeting is to wish someone happiness and good health -- what more could you ask for!

    Bula Cottage is in the perfect location. It is one block to town yet far enough away to be serene. We had dinner on the patio several nights and always had coffee and breakfast there in the mornings. We were lucky to be there just as the hydrangeas were blooming. The flower beds around the patio are landscaped beautifully. The home is much larger than the pictures look online. It is well appointed with everything you could possible need for a wonderful Nantucket vacation. The owner/manager is exceptional. So friendly and very efficient. Bula cottage gave us the perfect spot for a wonderful vacation. Thank you Carla for sharing your lovely home.

    Bula Cottage served as a perfect getaway for four "young" ladies celebrating our 60th birthdays! A short walk to town led us to island tours, fine dining, quaint shops and walking tours. Great location! Carla was fantastic to work with - always quick to answer questions and/or phone calls when needed. Home is beautifully decorated and kitchen fully stocked with anything you might need. Lovely back yard and a driveway for a car if you do bring one. Absolutely loved our stay. One note - recommend a cab to/from the ferry if you have luggage as the streets are cobblestoned!

    Love this house! The house is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. I especially loved the large bedrooms with their comfy beds. The appliances and fixtures are of a high quality and nice design, both beautiful and functional. There is a nicely furnished patio just off the kitchen, and we enjoyed sitting outside in the late afternoon. We brought our car, and it was a plus to have a parking space. When we arrived, we found the house sparkling clean with plenty of bath and beach towels and nice bedding and the essentials. Carla is a lovely host, quick to respond when booking and throughout the stay. I highly recommend this house to others if they want a great place to stay. It is in a convenient central location with easy access to everything.

    From the moment the front door of Bula was opened, we knew this was not just a nice house, it was a home, filled with comfort and care by truly nice people. Thank you for sharing your historic residence with our family, we loved everything about it. We walked back-forth to the bakery, market, shops, ferry several times a day, the convenience factor invaluable. And your comfy beds, marvelous back yard, fully-equipped kitchen, roaring fireplace all contributed to a marvelous week on this special, special island. Magical.

    Not a good house for toddlers - the incredibly steep stairs are a hazard that I wish I would have known about before booking. House was not clean: The master bedding was stained with an unknown substance and had obviously not been washed (the substance was kind of crunchy) . Gross! Behind every bed, on most every windowsill and under almost every piece of furniture there was dirt, dust, grime (and a few dead bugs). The dust bunnies were even attached to the walls. The upholstered furniture in the living room and master bedroom is stained, dusty and in need of a vacuum AND a professional cleaning. The bottoms of my white socks were dark gray if i didn't wear shoes. Thouse was not what I would call well stocked: There was one box of tissue in the entire house, and not enough toilet paper to last us 9-10 days. There were a only a few tabs of dishwashing detergent in a crumpled up opened package and only a 30% full bottle of mini dish soap. There were a only a few mismatched and incredibly worn beach towels - not enough for a family of 4 to use two days in a row. Many of the bath towels and washcloths were stained and bleached out (both the gray and white towels). The master bedroom bedside lamp did not work - which is a huge problem if you are on vacation and hoping to relax and read a book in bed in the evening. The property manager said this was a known problem and on his list of things to fix, but they were not able to fix it during our stay. Cable TV didn't work in the back 2nd floor bedroom. Cable TV in the living room looses the connection about 1-2 times/30 minutes. There was a loud water leak inside the wall of the master bedroom. In addition to the noise, there was no water in the master sink for one of the evenings/mornings. The queen bed on the second floor has a sagging mattress - big time. The a/c, despite following the welcome instructions to a T, did NOT work well upstairs. The first floor powder room has an odd urine smell that lingered thought the two weeks even if we left the door open. Upon returning home, I emailed the owner, Carla, about the details above. She told me that the furniture looks dirty because it "is "antiqued" by design to go with the historical nature of the cottage" . Trust me, it was just dirty. She also told me I should have complained immediately about the unclean property, cable problems, bed problems, a/c problems, lack of supplies, etc.

    We loved staying at Bula Cottage. We were a party of 6 adults and two children (three generations), and we enjoyed staying at this well-appointed property. At the northern edge of town, it was an easy walk to all the fun spots including Children's Beach and the Whaling Museum. The owner, Carla, was very responsive and helpful, even giving me restaurant recommendations and advice on bike rentals; she couldn't have been nicer. We needed the convenience of a house because of a toddler and baby, and staying at this lovely and clean property felt special. We hope to return someday. Highly recommended!

    Bula Cottage is a special place. Beautiful decor, immaculate, stocked with everything you need for a perfect vacation on Nantucket. We stayed for 3 nights on a girlfriends' weekend in April. The kitchen is small but perfectly laid out for meal prep, all appliances & equipment are top notch. The living room is large and comfortable. Master bedroom with en suite bath is also spacious and the mattress & linens are very comfortable. The heated bathroom floors are a very nice touch. Upstairs bedrooms are on the smaller side (not unusual in an older house). They were also well-appointed & everyone agreed the beds were great. Wi-fi worked great the whole time we were there which is always a plus. You can walk to just about everything in town; while some of us walked with our luggage from the ferry, I'd recommend taking a cab. Carla is excellent to deal with - friendly & great communication. Our only disappointment was the weather, spring was a long time coming to New England this year. Would stay here again and would recommend to friends!

    We had a wonderful stay! The home is perfectly located!

    I had stayed at this home several times before the current owner bought it, and fell in love with it the first time we were there. It just felt like "home". It changed ownership last year and is now better than ever with fresh paint and décor. The location was just perfect for our family, which includes my husband, 3 adult children, and two small grandchildren. We are from Texas and Oklahoma, so we genuinely appreciated the room air conditioners which were more than adequate. There is lots of room for us to spread out in the large living room, which has a big flat screen tv, and the big dining room table easily accommodates all of us for family meals. The kitchen is well stocked and very spacious and modern with new stainless steel appliances. Four bedrooms, all very generously sized, are bright and airy, and the new owner has added cheerful new bedding in each room. There is a new washer and dryer in the upstairs bathroom, and all the bathrooms have been beautifully updated. Anyone who has a car on Nantucket knows the value of a private driveway, and thankfully this house has one! But best of all, it's so close to both town and the beach. Main Street is a very easy 5 minute walk right down Centre Street, and Jetties Beach is maybe 10 minutes away. When we have the little kiddoes with us, we drive to either Jetties or Children's Beach just because it's easier, but walking to either one would be a breeze. In the morning, I walk up Chester Street past The Oldest House and on up to Cliff Road. . .it's just a great, central location which suited us PERFECTLY! I went there this past weekend with 3 girlfriends, and they couldn't stop raving about how beautiful and homey and convenient the house is -- and believe me, we can be hard to please. Bula Cottage is both a great find, and a good value. The keypad entry is handy instead of having to keep up with a key, the patio was great for early morning coffee and our traditional last night lobster fest, and having a television in each bedroom is a nice touch for when we all needed a little down time. I just can't say enough nice things about the house, and the new homeowner is SO very nice and easy to work with. I've read some horror stories about other rentals, but could not have been more pleased with our stay at Bula Cottage. Two thumbs up for sure!

    Great house, great location!!

    We rented this house in order to attend Daffodil Weekend and we were completely satisfied. Carla, the owner, was easy to work with from our first contact, through our stay and finally upon our check-out. She provided us the name of the caretaker and how to reach him but we never needed him for any reason. The house was easy to get into through a keypad door handle which was nice because whoever got home first could easily get in. The house was a short walk from everything the festival had to offer and all of the sites that we wanted to see in Nantucket. We began our mornings with a short walk to the bakery on Petticoat Row and after a wonderful breakfast, we would continue down to main street. At the end of our very active days, we would return home to relax next to the fireplace that we easily started with the flip of a switch. There were many restaurants within walking distance and only ordered a cab once to visit one that was further out of town. The cottage is decorated in such a neat, authentic way to the island yet maintains clean, fresh lines. The longer we stayed, the more we fell in love with it. The beds were so comfortable that the morning we left, I laughingly told the couple that we were traveling with that I had stripped the bed so I could find out information on the mattress because it was a slice of heaven. To our surprise, they had done the exact same thing in their room the night before. Our only complaint was that we hadn't chosen to stay a few more days. We woke early on the morning that we were heading home and were on the ferry when I received a text from Carla letting us know that we could take our time checking out because she didn't have any renters checking in that afternoon. I reported in to my adult daughter throughout our days and let her know how great the island is and the wonderful shopping that was available. She was so impressed that she has decided that we need to return for a girls weekend. If we do, I will DEFINITELY rent this house again!
