Our home is conveniently located close to historic downtown, beautiful beaches, public transport, museums, etc. Only 5 minute walk down the street to bike rental shop and healthy snack bar. You’ll love our spacious guestroom with skylight in private bathroom, desk for your laptop, TV, AC, and fresh flowers for all my guests. Enjoy backyard garden and deck, friendly host & sweet dog, easy access to bike-path, good coffee/tea. I usually offer a welcome beer, glass of wine, or iced tea.

The space

We have lots of trees and and I love gardening. My guests seem to love our private backyard, which stays pretty quiet because we are on a dead end street so we don't have much traffic. Please check out our other listing "Cozy Cottagette", backyard bedroom, which everyone loves, but is only available until late Fall because it is not winterized. I have small heater for shoulder seasons though, and it's very charming and cozy out there.

Guest access

I allow guests to put drinks/snacks in my fridge, and have access to coffee & tea. If I we are sitting by the fire during the lovely off-season, you are welcome to join. During nice weather you are encouraged to relax on the deck, in swing hammock, etc. I'm happy to offer small cooler for bike rides or the beach, and if you forget your backpack, I have one to loan out. Beach towels, chairs and umbrella are also available for your use.

Interaction with guests

I really enjoy hosting guests and meeting new people. I respect your privacy but am available to chat over coffee and give you directions to all the great sites, along with my favorite restaurants, etc. I always have maps, pamphlets, etc in your room along with the latest event magazine so you have plenty to read and find out about all the arts & culture, and fun things to do during your visit to our special island. If I am heading to town or the beach, I will offer you a ride.

Jill's place is far enough off the beaten path to gain quiet calm and close enough to town and beach to travel with ease via either very economical public transportation or cab. Her cottage is absolutely lovely as is she. Jill gave us wonderful insight into events, what to see both day and evening as well as where to satisfy our taste buds. We would love to return to the Faraway Island to spend time and stay with someone who feels just like a friend.

I had a wonderful stay at Jill's place. Jill couldn't have been more accommodating, even inviting me to join a small party she hosted one evening, where I found myself sitting by a fire, singing along to a band with a bunch of locals. It was great! I would recommend her place without hesitation for a relaxing stay on Nantucket.

Nantucket was such a great experience and Jill was a big part of it. Her hospitality and knowledge of the island is outstanding. For example, our GPS was not locating a beach we were trying to find so rather than just give directions she hopped on her bicycle and led us directly to it! Her home is quaint, comfy, and centrally located. jill is a great host! Highly recommend!!

This being our first trip to Nantucket we weren't sure of what to expect. Jill was a very welcoming and gracious host. She is a long time resident of the island and very knowledgeable. Location is close to public transportation and downtown. Charlotte is a sweetheart!

JIll's description and guest reviews are spot on. We had only two full days on Nantucket and Jill helped us make the most of it with providing insider recommendations and great conversation. She made us feel like we were local friends spending time over wine and seafood from her son's market. The location is central to town and beaches with easy access by foot, bike, scooter, cab or Uber. The home is very Cape Cod and Charlotte is a sweet dog.
