Hidden Gem

Our house was just off the road. Three stories-just perfect for four people. Very well maintained with a person on call all the time for any arising problem. Would rent again.

Perfect house.. Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Maison D' Etre provided such an amazing trip for me. It's perfectly laid out and appointed. The front yard with its large umbrella offers a great place to relax in the sun. I could walk to town, yoga, and the grocery store. The owner thought of every detail. Jim the property manager was also great to work with. I would like to have stayed even longer!

4th Year Renting

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have have rented this charming home for four summers straight and always happily come back! It is extremely well appointed with everything you could need from cooking in a chef's kitchen to heading out to the beach. The interiors are very well kept and clean to the point that everything always looks brand new year after year. The exterior of the home has a beautiful petite landscaped yard as well as an outdoor lounge area and dining area with grill for summer BBQ's. It is a professionally managed property with a local contact on island which is comforting should you need assistance with anything {we have never had to call, but nice knowing it's there}. One of the greatest aspects of the home is it's location. It's a short ten minute walk to town which is great for dining out & not having to worry about parking in the busy town. The lower level is great for guests as it has it's own living area, two beds, walk in closet & own bath. The 2nd floor is a large master bed with a comfy bed & half bath. The full bath on the first floor is spa like with luxurious finishes. We just booked our 5th trip & look forward to returning!

Chicago Trip to Nantucket

  • 5 of 5

The house is very nice and as described. Its a short 10 minute walk to town and where everything is located. The top floor has a large bedroom with a kind bed thats comfy. Upsatirs has a bath but the shower is on the first floor. Can easily sleep 2 people upsatirs. The lower (basement level) has a queen and twin bed that can also sleep two. I dont think you can get 2 ppl in the full bed downstairs and be comfortable. I would stay there again but I think 4 ppl is really tops.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the 5 stars! Yes , as I recommend it on the site this is a great place for 4 adults, or 2 adults and 2 or 3 children. We have a king size bed in the Master Bedroom. In the Lower level we have a regular full bed as well as a twin bed. We have 2 full baths, one on the main level and one on the lower level/Junior Suite. The second floor has a half bath.

Wonderful trip

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the property for a week over the Labor Day holiday, and it was everything we hoped it would be and more! The pictures accurately represent the property, the kitchen was well-stocked, and we were able to see the whole island throughout the week. The property is within walking distance to the harbor/town and even the big grocery store in the other direction. I would recommend a car if you'd like to experience the whole island, but if you'd like to stay close to town, you could definitely stay here without one. The owner was wonderful to work with, and any questions we had were answered promptly We'd love to come back next year.
