Many Castles is a completely furnished and equipped "upside-down" house located on the south side of Nantucket Island. Access to Many Castles is provided by a privately maintained road which winds through more than a mile of conservation land in beautiful Maddequecham Valley. This exclusive area of the Island is protected by Nantucket law and consists of only a dozen or so homes nestled among several thousand acres of moors, meadows and beaches. Yet you are only several minutes by car from the shopping and excitement of Nantucket Town. Built in 1983 in a style reminiscent of the Federal Period with its hipped roof and ornamental widow's walk, Many Castles is situated to take maximum advantage of 180 degree ocean views from the expansive second level walk-out deck. A broad, sandy ocean beach, well known by island natives for its privacy, beauty and excellent fishing is just a ten minute walk down an idilic path through unspoiled heartland and meadows. Or enjoy volleyball at our backyard court.

Many Castles Nantucket, MA

Review submitted: July 11, 2014   Date of arrival: June 28, 2014

Excellent vacation at Many Castles Nantucket, MA. Listing description was accurate and the listing photos were accurate. The house is very comfortable. Top of the line electronics (diverse and large DVD library) and household amenities, including new stove; perfect for cooking lobsters! Hmm. Lots of board games for the kids. Ocean views from living area and spacious ocean facing deck as described. Beds were very comfortable and all linens, towels, and comforters top of the line; like staying at a hotel. Location was quiet and quiet not crowded beach nearby as described by owner. All other beaches easy driving distances. Excellent paved and dirt biking paths which traverse the island. We rented bikes from Island Bikes. Island Bikes was excellent and their bikes were top notch. They also deliver and pick up for free. Others charge $10. We rode bikes more than drove car. A compact car will meet your needs; unless you expect to go offroad --which you will have to do to reach distant fishing and beach spots. Then you will need a four wheel drive. The town of Nantucket has many fine restaurants, taverns, and candy stores. More gummy bears, if you please. There are many historical sites in and around town. The Whaling museum is a must stop. There is great fishing from the beach and a myriad of private boats. Several tackle stores nearby to rent gear; boats supply everything. We caught 30 fish and cooked many of them on the excellent new gas grill on the deck. The house is very clean and very well maintained. Outdoor shower (enclosed except for roof) is fantastic. I showered only once inside. Night stars are incredible. Very little ambient light. Owner very helpful, friendly and responsive. I would recommend this property to family and friends. In fact I already have.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Most Relaxing Week at Many Castles

Review submitted: September 21, 2013   Date of arrival: September 7, 2013

Hi Nancy,

Here is the review, for you to enter onto the VRBO site.

We had the most relaxing week staying at Many Castles. The house is slightly off the beaten track, making it a real escape and the perfect place to wind-down. We loved having breakfast on the balcony with fabulous views out to sea. The kitchen is really well-equipped and there's a great DVD collection to dip into on quiet evenings. The outdoor shower is a real highlight and the outdoor grill is great for cooking up any fish caught locally. Only criticism is that the sun-beds could do with some cushions! Other than that, we had a lovely holiday and would highly recommend Many Castles.

All the best,


Owner Comment:
We take guest suggestions seriously. For 2014 we will have lounge chair cushions and also, a 2013 guest requested a salad spinner. A new salad spinner will be in the kitchen for the 2014 season. Thanks for your thoughtful suggestions. Nancy
