Description of the Madaket vacation home rental

"Thistledew" is the name of our fabulous beach home in Madaket, located on the ocean at the western end of Nantucket. The ocean is just steps out the front door and the sunsets are famous. The home has a large deck extending off the back of the house, facing East for beautiful mornings and views of Hither Creek and Nantucket Sound. A short private path leads to our little dock in the Creek where kayaks and an old rowboat are stored for your use. This home is within a private compound of three homes all owned and operated by our family. Due to the foresightedness of our parents we have been fortunate enough to spend our summers here for over fifty years. We care greatly for this island and our land and homes here. We are always available if you should need something.
If you have always dreamed of a beautiful ocean-front beach house with water views from every window and everything you might need to enjoy your vacation, then think of Thistledew.

Area Information

The house is located in a private compound before the bridge to Smith's Point at the end of Madaket Road. Nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and Hither Creek the location, water views and the magnificent beaches and starry nights are exhilarating
Nantucket's fabulous bike paths end right at your driveway and the NRTA--Nantucket shutle bus leaves from Millie's Restaurant every half-hour from 7am until midnight. The walk to the Shuttle is less than five minutes from the house.Shuttle passes are available from NRTA--Nantucket Regional Transit Authority. The shuttle delivers you to the heart of town. And, avoids the complications of parking, especially in summer.
If you enjoy biking into town (6 miles) and decide that you don't wish to bike back, no problem, the shuttle will take your bikes and you can ride comfortably until the last stop.
You will love the views, sounds and the time you spend here.

Other Vacation Rental Amenities

Madaket is the furthest west you can go on the island. The sun sets in the ocean. The air is the finest. There are bike paths that enable you to go all around the island safely. The NRTA or Nantucket Shuttle bus runs in and out of Nantucket Center and then connects to other locations all over the island. It leaves every half hour from The Westend Restaurant about a five minute walk from the house.
The Atlantic Ocean is just out your front door. Every room and every window has a waterview.The calm waters of Hither Creek and Madaket Harbor are enticing from the privacy of your deck. You can enjoy the sunrises and sunsets and then the Night Sky and Milky Way from your Beach House.
What's not to love' Spring and Fall are also some of the greatest times on the island. If you desire more information or would like to reserve some island time, please call or e-mail me anytime.

Unbelievable spot

There isn't a place more special than Madaket at Thistledew. Could do with less clutter in house and needs some cleaning up.

Madaket Beach House

Just ended a wondrous week in Nantucket at this Madaket Cottage as close to the ocean as you can get without being washed away. Surf casting for Bluefish within steps of the front door. Location, location, location! Fred C

Owner Supplied Testimonials

Guestbook

Thistledew enabled my family and friends to luxuriate in the "Beach House Life" for two weeks.
Five of us, 3 kids--18, 15, 10 and several friends all found peace and pleasure during our stay. The water and the views are gorgeous and the house itself was clean, wonderfully equipped and delightfully decorated. Enjoy!

This was our first Nantucket experience and we were thrilled beyond belief. Everything is the way it should be!
My husband, two sons and I enjoyed the privacy, the ocean and the beauty that is everywhere.
You can't go wrong with this vacation or this house and its location. The house has all the 'stuff' that we could have asked for plus more.
We will be back.
