Guestbook comments from the owner

1 Boyers Alley is centrally located and puts you within reach of beaches at all ends of the island and a nice walk into town.

We had a great time spreading out our laptops and dinners/breakfasts on the dining table and watching World Cup TV. The deck is really so nice in the sun. Comfy house for the two of us. Hope we can visit again and sign the guest book for 1 Boyers B!

Great cottage!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed for Columbus Day weekend with my husband and 11 month old son. The cottage is cute, clean, neat and close to town. The convenience of having 2 bedrooms with a baby can’t be beat! Kendra and Phil were great to work with and we had a great time during our stay.

Convenient and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

Kendra and Phil's place was a perfect home base for my husband and I during our week on Nantucket. We had another couple visit for the weekend and we fit 4 adults just fine. We enjoyed being walking distance to town (10-15 mins) as well as close to all the bike paths and bus lines. We were able to explore 6 or 7 different beaches easily! The place itself was clean and tidy, with a nice contemporary style and just the right size. We appreciated the nicely sized patio and spent some time outside each evening. We would have grilled too, if there weren't so many great food places close by! The kitchen had everything we needed and to our delight, a dishwasher too. The only thing we couldn't find was a wine bottle opener, but our neighbors were friendly and willing to lend one. The outdoor shower was a big plus. I could go on, but I'll just say we had a great experience and we would highly recommend this place!!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Jenna, we are so happy that you enjoyed your vacation in our cottage! We agree that the location is very convenient, making it easy to visit a lot of the island, but tucked away enough to have a quiet evening on the deck. We do try to provide everything that would be needed for an island vacation. We're not sure what happened to the wine opener but we will replace it asap! Thanks again, and let us know if you'd like to visit again!

Great location and very clean, the house has everything you need for an enjoyable stay on the island

  • 5 of 5

This house is great for two or a small family. Great location, easy to walk to downtown and is in a nice quiet area. Spacious and easy parking was definitely a bonus.

Cute little cottage

  • 4 of 5

Cute little cottage. Looks exactly as pictured. Kitchen was new and well-equipped. Bathroom also new. Closets were tiny. Yard perfectly manicured. Location was great as it was walkable to town and It was an easy drive to the beaches. We enjoyed having a car which let us explore the different parts of the island. We had a problem with construction noise but Kendra handled it.
