Description

Description

This is a 3 bedroom waterfront property in two adjacent rose covered cottages located on Hither Creek, Madaket. The front (waterside) cottage (''Goldfish'') consists of a Living/Dining Room with a large deck across the front, a galley kitchen (also with water view), one queen-bed bedroom with private bath and one double-bed bedroom with additional single (cot size) trundle bed and bath and sitting area. The back cottage (''Starfish'') includes the Master Bedroom, configured as a studio apartment with sitting area, coffee kitchen, and private bath. Starfish has a queen size bed and cot size window seat, and there is a cathedral ceiling and water views. This unique two-cottage layout gives the opportunity for a bit more privacy for those staying in Starfish.

The cottages are separated by a landscaped patio and, three steps up, a hammock and grassy sitting area with a view of Hither Creek and Madaket Harbor. At the Hither Creek edge there is water access for canoes, kayaks and sunfish. Easy access to the bike path, seasonal shuttle bus (4 minute walk), and all Madaket beaches (both surf and calm water).

Old & Charming Nantucket

We just returned from 2 weeks at Goldfish & Starfish, a charming pair of cottages sweetly landscaped and situated on Hither Creek in Madaket, the western end of Nantucket island.

Goldfish, a one-story cottage set closer to the water, serves as the main house with two ensuite bedrooms, a well-stocked kitchen, living room, pantry & laundry.... plus a fabulous water side deck with out of this world views of the entire waterfront, Smith Point, Tuckernuck & Nantucket Sound beyond.

Starfish, the smaller cottage, where we stayed, is set back and off to the side of Goldfish so that it has perhaps more privacy from the main house, but still has that same fantastic water view. Starfish is a simple bedroom/sitting room with a tiny fridge/tea & coffee setup, plus its own full bath.

Between the two cottages, there is a very sweet connecting brick patio with teak dining table, chairs and grill where we could cook and dine. I can imagine that the patio would be a beautiful, sunny refuge from nippy air or heavy winds while still allowing you to enjoy the outdoors on colder autumn days. However, none of us wanted to be anywhere but on that waterside deck with the outstanding views, so we never gave the patio a trial run, other than to use the grill, but admired it for the possibilities during less perfect weather.

Over the course of two weeks, we had a variety of family and friends visiting and staying with us. Everyone (NYC executives and New Hampshire relatives alike) appreciated the old Nantucket vibe - slow pace, peace & quiet, appreciation of nature, and a simple yet very comfortable home from which we could enjoy the best of old Nantucket. It had everything we needed - save, perhaps, easy tv set up and no internet reception in the big cottage - without ever feeling overdone. Beds and seating were all comfortable and simple, which was perfect for us. Good beaches are right nearby, as is a fun yet not fancy restaurant (the only one in Madaket) plus bicycling paths to the entire island. A mini-jitney bus is close by so that we did not have to drive our car into the impossibly auto-clogged streets of downtown Nantucket.

Bottom line: If you are looking for a “luxe” vacation, meaning, air conditioning turned on, 5-star television and internet connectivity, granite countertops, steam saunas, and expensive fittings, then this is not the place for you. But, if you are eager to experience the best of Nantucket, the old Nantucket - where the world slows down and the natural world abounds (did I already say there’s a deck with views were to die for?), where you can enjoy the peace and quiet, sleep with windows and doors open for fresh air, read a book with a pair of binoculars at the ready in your lap, and yet have easy walking/biking/driving access to the rest of all island offerings - then this is the place for you!

Our stay here was voted a unanimous two thumbs, way up, by everyone! We would be thrilled to return.

Madaket at its best

We were lucky enough to spend time at Goldfish and Starfish this summer. The cottages are thoughtfully designed and beautifully maintained. Located right on Hither Creek we were able to kayak from the back yard and loved clamming and exploring the waterways. We invited extended family to stay and having two charming cottages made it so easy and manageable.

The cottages are equipped with everything you would need and some things you didn't even know you needed! We love the low key vibe of this part of the island and sitting on the deck watching a breathtaking sunset is, well, amazing and one of our favorite activities. The garden is another delight. We were there during the rose season, and every morning I awoke to a rose nodding in the breeze right outside our window, a great way to start the day, and ending it with a beautiful sunset is what this property is all about. show more show less

We have rented this property every fall for the past 12 years. It couldn't be more perfect for our group of six friends and one child. The owners have carefully attended to every detail -- from thick towels in three bathrooms, to cozy chenille throws for chilly evenings, a wide hammock for napping on lazy afternoons, to a kitchen well appointed with every utensil needed for transforming fresh island fish and vegetables into delicious meals. The view from the living room is breathtaking. And the house is only a short walk to one of the island's most glorious beaches. Our sojourns at this tranquil spot are always rejuvenating. We will keep coming back as long as the owners will rent to us! show more show less

Every view from Goldfish is a treat for the eyes. The house is in the perfect location to watch all the activity of boats coming and going all day. There is no better pastime than sitting in the hammock, with your favorite book, watching the constant parade of boats. The owners have equipped the house with everything you will need for your stay, from soup to nuts. The house is decorated with the colors of the sea and is so comfortable. Madaket is a wonderful, quiet place to explore with endless beaches to walk. Perfect for kids of all ages. Even on rainy days there is plenty to do. Once you stay there once, you will want to return as soon as possible.
