Description

Description

''Sand Palace'' is the house for a one or two family vacation. The large yard is good for playing with small fry, horseshoe pit for older ones, and croquet for all. When you go to any of the numerous beaches on the island you may take the provided beach chairs, towels, and umbrellas. The town shuttle stops just across the street and the bike path to the beach and town is right there. The small deck overlooking the yard is where you'll clean off your sandy feet. The front deck has views of Hither Creek, the outer harbor, Tuckernuck in the distance, and sunsets. Bring your family flag to fly from the flagpole! The semi-finished basement with ping-pong table is large enough to make a nice play area for the odd rainy day. There are toys, high chairs, strollers, and stuff to play with... if you can find it you can use it. Weekly rentals generally start in June, however earlier dates can be negotiated. Normally the rental starts Sundays, however we can be flexible in May, June, and September.

Free unlimited domestic long distance phone calls. Wired and wireless internet.

Before you arrive we'll provide directions, house instructions, and our beach recommendations for this summer

Absolutely perfect stay in Madaket

We have rented many homes over the years, but Sand Palace exceeded even our highest expectations. The critical difference is that the home does not present as a rental - there are personal touches, big rooms with nice linens and furniture, and a very comfortable feel. The owners obviously take great pride in this house and are extremely helpful and attentive in the process.
Some of the highlights for our group of 2 families with children (ages 7-12): The basement, impeccably organized, stocked with toys and beach equipment. The location, on Madaket Road but set way back, with an awesomely huge lawn for whiffle ball and bocce. The perfect view of the famed Madaket sunset from the quiet and private front porch. And the little touches - the big bucket at the door for washing sandy feet, the plush beach towels for guests to use, and the crazy awesome first floor shower that made me not want to go home. This place is awesome. We will be back! show more show less

"The Sand Palace was the perfect home for our week-long three-generation family vacation. We were 10 people in four family units, housed very comfortably in this compact but spacious home. The kitchen is nicely remodeled. The furnishings all around are clean, and everything is well maintained. The basement is a gold-mine of toys, all available for use: ping pong table, beach chairs, kites, lawn games, sand toys, etc., etc. Also lots of baby equipment such as high chairs and strollers. Owners are thoughtful and generous. The shuttle was one of the great features of our stay. It stops right across the street and will take you to town, then on across the island if you want to go. We bought week-long passes and got a lot of use from them. You can also place your bike on the rack. We didn't know Nantucket when we made this reservation, but Madaket was a lucky choice. It is the "unfancy" end of the island, where homes are of reasonable size and people do their own gardening. No trophy homes out here. The beach was fabulous, and the bay also. Next time we will bring kayaks and put in at Madaket Bay. We rented bikes for the week, and could get everywhere on them (with supplement from the shuttle bus). Try the bike shop off the main drag on the way to the children's beach; they were generous and helpful. We hope to enjoy another week at the Sand Palace in the near future show more show less
