Our family has taken to referring to 8M as "the enchanted cottage" because everything about our stay there was lovely and magical. We knew we made the right choice when, the first day that we had breakfast on the deck, we saw a red-tailed hawk sunning himself on a post in the lot across the street.
This rental is more than a cottage, though. It is a real home where every amenity you could wish for is available. We have so many happy memories of our time there, even with the ungodly heat wave, the threat of a hurricane (which never came to pass), the abundance of jellyfish and occasional shark sighting. We really needed to run the A/C while we were there and, because it is central, every room in the house was comfortable.
This home is impeccably maintained, well-equipped and full of wonderful extras like the hammock, bicycles, cooler and beach blankets. Last but not least, Cynthia and Ellwood are warm, welcoming and responsive hosts.
I have been renting homes on Nantucket for almost 30 years and this is the most special place I have ever stayed. We hope to return next summer if there is room for us!
