"I rented 'The Scallop' for family that was visiting for a long weekend this October and I can't say enough good things about our experience! The cottage was a perfect fit for a family of six, small enough to feel intimate yet large enough to not be cramped. The cottage's location is near perfect within yards of Madaket beach, views of Millie's bridge and the harbor, and short walking distance to Smith's Point and Jackson Point. In October Madaket's only restaurant, Millie's, is closed, but the house is equipped with everything you might need for cooking at home. There is even a rake and basket if you'd like to try your hand at scalloping in Madaket Harbor, which we did and loved (with a shellfish permit from the Town of course.) Another huge perk are the modern accessories provided for your use. The kids were thrilled to find a Google Chromecast and a bluetooth sound system. The sound system makes it easy to stream music from your phone without having to plug in and the Chromecast allows you to stream video, Netflix or HBOgo, from your phone or laptop. Having lived on Nantucket for awhile now, I've come to find myself loving the serenity of Madaket over the other areas of the island. If you're looking for the same, this rental is right for you." - October 2014

"My family of four stayed at his beach house this summer and it was great. The top floor is completely open with a living, dining and kitchen areas that look out at the ocean. Plus there is a walk-out deck. The three bedrooms work well on the ground floor. Easy walk to the beach with the wagon and beach chairs and toys that are available. Would recommend this property." - Jonathan Herlihy, September 2014

"Great ocean and sunset views! The house is in a quiet setting and has all the necessary amenities for a great beach vacation. Having stayed in town for many trips to Nantucket, the serenity of 'The Scallop' was a welcome change In addition to being close to beach, the house is a short walk to the shuttle bus and bike trails for trips around the island. Property was clean, well maintained and the owners were very helpful and quick to respond to questions. Our group loved it so much we are already looking forward to next year." - Rich Pettibone, July 2012
