“Beautiful house and great location for having all the fun on Nantucket”
Reviewed 24 March 2017 for a stay in September 2016

The Monkey Barrel is a barrel of fun big enough to accommodate a large group. The house has a renovated kitchen, it's tastefully decorated, well-maintained, and clean. Spacious backyard has an amazing grill, and there is a hot tub! The lovely downtown area of the island and the beautiful beaches are a nice walk, or short cab or bike ride away. This was not my first stay at the Monkey Barrel and hopefully won't be my last.

“Such a beautiful vacation home inside and out!”
Reviewed 23 March 2017 for a stay in July 2016

person found this review helpful

I stayed here several times last summer. Such a beautiful vacation home inside and out! Parking is not a problem here, which I’ve found can be an issue with large groups! Great backyard with a hot tub, grill, and outdoor fridge on a large deck to keep the party rolling without interruption! A/C to help enjoy your time inside with spacious bedrooms and top of the line appliances. Location is perfect; short distance to the beach or town, but just far enough away to feel like you are in your own retreat. Owners were a joy to work with - I truly recommend this house! Only thing left is to book your ferry or flight!

“Amazing home”
Reviewed 23 March 2017 for a stay in May 2016

Amazing location, Amazing home. Walking distance to town, walking distance to beach. This is the perfect house for a large group of friends or family. Everything you need to enjoy your time on nantucket. We stayed there with a group of friends and the layout allowed everyone to have their own space. We will be back.

“Magnificent Monkey Barrel”
Reviewed 23 March 2017 for a stay in July 2016

This is an amazing home conveniently located between the Surfside beaches and town. It is big enough to accommodate large groups with 6 bedrooms and a bathroom on each floor. It's comfortable furnishings make you feel like you are at home instantly. The backyard is the best part of the home and was perfect for entertaining and our family dinners.. There is a hot tub, commercial sized grill, expansive deck, ice maker (big plus for cooler filling) and large table out back for relaxing. My favorite part of the house was the outdoor shower...a must for any beach house. Mike and Kirby are accommodating and organized and will make sure your stay is perfect. The Monkey Barrel had it all for our perfect Nantucket Vacation!
