    A Wonderful Experience!

    From our arrival until our reluctant departure, Curtis was the superlative host and the cottage was both beautiful and exceptionally welcoming. Clean, well stocked with amenities, and conveniences, its perfect location left us with a lasting and positive impression of Nantucket. Sunset Hill Cottage, and its remarkable host, Curtis will also remain with us and provide fond memories for years to come. Thank you, Curtis!

    With our highest recommendation, Mike and Kathy

    A very special cottage

    From the moment we got off the ferry and were greeted by the owner, we knew this was the start of a wonderful getaway. Curtis is an amazing host and he made the stay so special. From the farm fresh eggs (his own friendly chickens), to the bottles of wine and helpful island tips galore, we were made to feel like his new best friends.
    The cottage is lovely and was perfect for three friends away for a long weekend on the island. We had everything we needed and could walk to town in 10 to 15 minutes. We were blessed with great weather, so I will put this vacation at the top of my list and will definitely try to stay again if I can find a date open in the calendar. : ) Thank you to Curtis and his wonderful family. show more show less

    Perfect cottage

    We have been staying at the cottage for a few years now and it one of our favorite places. Our kids absolutely love the loft and it's perfect for our family. It is so close to town but very quiet. Curtis is always the best host and he is so kind and helpful. He suggests beaches and playgrounds for the kids and spots to eat. We have just returned from our vacation and can't wait to come back.

    Perfect as usual

    We have been coming to Sunset Hill for just about five years now and it never disappoints! Curtis is the most gracious host and the cottage is wonderful. Our kids have come to think of it as one of their places and we look forward to our visit each year. The location could not be better, you are close to town but not quite in the hustle and bustle so there's space and quiet. We continue to come back year after year to this special place!

    A Cozy Nantucket Cottage

    From the first moment we arrived on the island, Curtis was the perfect host. He met us at the ferry, and throughout the week, he went above and beyond to offer suggestions for activities and restaurants. The cottage itself is cozy and comfortable. There are many windows that provide light and a lovely view. We walked downtown each day, which was just a few minutes down the road. We were truly delighted by all Nantucket has to offer. We enjoyed every minute of our stay and will certainly plan to return. show more show less

    Home away from home

    This little cottage is my home away from home. Nantucket is my favorite place to be and staying in Curtis's cottage makes me feel like I'm staying with my family.

    The cottage is the perfect distance from town. You are far enough away from the hustle and bustle but close enough to hear the Ferry whistle, walk in for dinner or if you prefer Uber and cabs are easily accessible. You have everything you need when you stay here including the washer and dryer.

    Sit on one of the decks with a good book, cup of coffee or glass of wine and you will be lost. I cannot wait to return again this year...see you soon! show more show less

    Wonderful Property!

    This was our third stay at [this property] and, once again, we had a wonderful time! The cottage is comfortable, cute, and fun. Our favorite things about staying there are the gorgeous yard and the easy, beautiful walk to town and quick bike ride to the beach. Mr. Barnes never fails to be the most courteous, friendly, and accommodating host! He always makes us feel so welcome! Nantucket is so special to us. We love the long bike rides, beautiful beach walks, and delicious meals. Highly recommend [this property] and this beautiful, special island! show more show less

    Perfect for families

    We have been to Curtis's several times now and each time it is hard to leave! I would not want to stay anywhere else. The location is perfect - close to town but private, walking distance to gorge at beaches and restaurants, next to great walking trails and the open space at the "oldest house." The cottage itself is perfectly equipped and we have never wanted for anything at any of ours stays. We will be looking to come back soon.

    This is where you want to stay with your family on the island!

    Location is perfect - short walk to town but very quiet at night. We stayed with our two children who shared the twin beds in one room and we had king bed in other. Comfortable, safe and very charming.

    Mr. Barnes is the ultimate host checking in on us, dropping off eggs from his chickens and was so helpful with transportation and ideas of what to do as we were newer to Nantucket.

    Highly recommend as a place to rent for a week (or two.. ;)

    Spectacular!

    This was our sixth time staying here and we love it. It’s so easy to walk or bike to town and the beach. Extremely convenient to everything! The cottage is clean, light and airy and beautifully decorated. There’s a nice private deck to relax on at the end of the day. Curtis is very helpful and always accommodating. We love it and can’t wait to go back!
