Nantucket rental

For the full Cape Cod experience, a rental property is the way to go

Who doesn’t want to escape to Nantucket for a bit? The island is renowned for its alluring beauty, quaint streets and sprawling shorelines. If you’re planning your next big event or vacation, there’s no better place to go, and this rental home in Quidnet provides the perfect opportunity for a large family getaway or a fun trip with friends.

“This is something that two families could share equally with the two master suites,” explains Kenan Giguere, owner of Nantucket Retreats, adding that the property can comfortably accommodate at least three cars. “It’s great for family reunions.”

From spectacular views and a sprawling green yard to a home filled with luxurious amenities and rich character, this property embodies everything that makes Nantucket special. “Our goal at Nantucket Retreats is to give people the best experience we can. They’re here to create lifelong, lasting memories while on vacation on the island,” says Giguere. “We want visitors to have the best experience that they can. Every family’s different with what they want.” His best advice when renting a home is to find a reputable source with whom to book to ensure the security of your investment.

One such source is, an online database specializing in rental properties specifically on the Cape and Islands. “We are a vacation rental marketplace where visitors can find the ideal vacation rental on Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard or Nantucket,” explains Marketing and Communications Manager Tyler Pyburn. Indeed, visitors to the site can quickly and easily find this Quidnet home using the website’s detailed search functions. “It’s an absolutely stunning property that would certainly make any family happy,” Pyburn comments.

“Rental properties are becoming an industry as a whole,” says Pyburn, explaining that there is an incredible variety of homes here, including modest but charming cottages, classic sea captains’ mansions, and modern, upscale homes. It can be challenging to find the perfect home with the Cape so in demand, but rental platforms like this one make finding the ideal space as simple as the click of a button. “We want to help as many people get back to the Cape and Islands as possible,” says Pyburn. “We think it’s such a special place that everybody should enjoy it.” The Quidnet rental provides the perfect opportunity for vacationers to do just that, with plenty of indoor and outdoor space for families to entertain themselves and for children to explore.

“Basically half of the house is brand new, so one half is very modern and the other half, as you’re walking through it, starts getting into the old house. It’s a neat feeling,” says Giguere. His favorite room is the sunroom, which used to be a screened-in porch. Improvements now have it enclosed with windows, yet the interior walls  have remained shingled. “As you’re looking at it, you get this feeling of being outside while still being protected inside,” says Giguere.

As Pyburn puts it, “The Cape and Islands are unique, and no two homes are the same.” Homeowners across the region take pride in their properties and in sharing them with excited visitors. With this particular home, there’s so much to discover both inside its walls and across the island—with access and views of both the Atlantic Ocean and nearby Sesachacha Pond—and it’s a big enough space that large groups can enjoy their time while not feeling cramped. Plus, the home is the perfect spot for a reunion photo or an entire album full of images that perfectly illustrate your latest vacation, complete with classic Nantucket hydrangeas adding pops of color in the background. What more could you want from your island retreat?
