  • Excellent stay


    We had a wonderful time staying at this property for our visit to Nantucket. The location was ideal and the home was clean and accommodating. With super convenient access to the grocery store, we cooked in the well equipped kitchen each night.

  • Great place, amazing location!


    I loved both the townhouse and the location. I t had everything we needed. The extra bathroom and laundry capabilities came in handy for sure. Loved the decor and the best part was walking out right into the thick of the town. I'd stay again and again. Thanks, Ken!

  • Amazing Mini-moon Destination


    Island Thyme was an amazing place for our mini-moon on Nantucket. The property is in an amazing location, just steps from the ferry landing. Easy access to all the downtown restaurants and shops. The property itself was perfect for our stay, including a full kitchen, washer/dryer, 2 bathrooms and a comfortable bedroom. We didn't need anything more!

  • Fantastic stay in a great location!


    We had a wonderful stay at “Island Thyme”! The owners had great communication before, during, and after the trip which made the logistics easy. The town home is in a central location very close to the ferries, grocery store, restaurants, and bike shops. It can get a little loud at night but that’s expected given the location and the air conditioning units (which were brand new looking and worked well) helped drown out the sound a bit. The home is decorated beautifully and really everything inside seemed brand new. We could tell a lot of care was taken is furnishing the apartment and we felt we had everything we needed throughout our stay. The kitchen was fully equipped and the washer and dryer were great to have. There are even two beach chairs that were easy to transport - we put them the back of bicycles and rode out to the beach. The owners sent us some great recommendations for things to do too. We would highly recommend a stay here!

  • WOW!! Best location in Town


    We love to visit Nantucket in the Springtime when the crowds are not scurrying. Finding this townhouse smack in the middle of Town was incredible. There is no need for a car when everything is at your fingertips. A short couple min walk to the beach, and we found heaven. We will be back to your lovely home next Spring.
