Renting a Nantucket Vacation Home vs. Staying in a Hotel

Nantucket Island is a New England vacation destination like no other. Visitors that choose to book their vacation on island come to experience the combination of historic charm and seaside elegance that only Nantucket can deliver. Choosing to stay in a Nantucket home versus a hotel can help you to live like a local, without the stress of a hotel, as you experience the island in a whole new way.

Why a Nantucket Home?

With a roomy vacation home, you have plenty of room for everyone on your list. You don’t have to sacrifice space just because you’re with a large group. When you chose to stay in a home, you have the luxury of being able to spread out in your own space, while staying together as a group. Whether you need space for friends, kids or both, experience the fun of being close together, while still being able to close the door behind you as needed.

Freedom to enjoy the pleasures of home while you travel

Somedays, having one less thing to worry about can be priceless.

Vacation homes are stocked with the amenities you won’t have to stress about packing. Shampoos, soaps, towels, and the comforts of home are all at your fingertips. The perfect island day can continue once you come home, not back to the hotel, where you’ve got everything you need.

A fully-stocked kitchen equipped with cutlery, dishes, and appliances gives you the freedom to choose more than take out when you don’t want to experience the hassle of going out. Shop for organic, island-grown ingredients and cook your favorite meal like an islander in your own private kitchen. From pancakes in your pajamas to lobster on your deck, feeding your family and friends can be about making memories, not reservations.

Traveling with kids? No problem!

Having a spacious living room can be pure bliss when you’re traveling. Hotels rarely have enough space for the whole family to hang out, outside of a bedroom, without feeling cramped. On average, vacation rentals offer about 1,000 square feet more shared living space than a hotel room.

The time we spend together on vacations is priceless, make it comfortable too. Whether that means building a fort on movie night or lots of space for elegant entertaining, you can focus on being together better, by staying in.

One of the best qualities of a private home rental is privacy. When you close your front door, you can be alone with your family (without sitting on beds). In addition, you’ll get even more privacy inside as many homes have their own ensuite bathrooms. That means no waiting in line to shower and a better chance of making your dinner reservations.

Later, spend those long summer nights however you please with plenty of privacy to watch a movie, read a book or listen to the waves. Enjoy the magic of a quiet night for two at home, no matter how many people you’re traveling with. With Nantucket vacation homes, privacy is still a luxury everyone can afford.
