Wonderful weekend on Nantucket!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful long weekend at Belle's Gift. The house is well stocked with everything you could need to enjoy your time on Nantucket, from bikes and beach chairs to linens and pots and pans. The backyard is spectacular with loads of space for our dog to run around! Bob was incredibly responsive in arranging the rental quickly and communicative throughout our stay. I would highly recommend a stay at Belle's Gift! We are looking forward to returning in the future!

Felt like home

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Belle's Gift! Twelve of us came in for a girls' weekend to check out the annual Nantucket Christmas Stroll. It was the perfect house for playing games, cooking and watching movies by the fire. It was a bit hard to find - even for the locals - but felt very cozy and just like home when we finally arrived.

A Memorable Thanksgiving

  • 5 of 5

It takes a special place to make a Thanksgiving away from home feel like you are in fact home. The Vidoni's home with all the amenities and furnishings is warm and cozy, you instantly feel a sense of relaxation. In all the years we have vacationed in Nantucket, this is the first time we did not stay in town. I now see Nantucket in a whole new light. Quidnet is expanse of peace and calm. The Pilgrims' 1st Thanksgiving may have lasted three days but our 5 night stay was pretty special..

Thanks so much to Bob and Virginia.

Beautiful, idyllic, peaceful, perfect

  • 5 of 5

Ever since I can remember we have spent our Nantucket summers in town. This year we went up-country and are now converts. Quidnet is a beautiful location with easy access to a number of beaches and walks. The house surpassed our expectations in every way and the owner was exceptionally accommodating and quick responding to a number of requests we had during the first few days of our stay. Especially appreciated - the big yard which was perfect for the kids, the kitchen with every machine and utensil imaginable, the induction stove which is perfect for boiling water for corn and lobster en masse, and a very comfortable living and dining area which easily accommodated our large and boisterous family. We absolutely loved our time here.

Rabbit Hill by Robert Lawson 1944 first edition

  • 5 of 5

I believe the greatest compliment we can pay our hosts is the say that we truly felt as though we were actually their own personal guests and the ONLY thing missing was them!

Of all the places we have traveled over many years both here and abroad, we can easily say this is among the most memorable. And being able to stay with our canine family just completed our bliss. As a matter of fact on one of our lazy afternoons our shepard, Anais and I decided to retreat to the hammock down beyond the house only to be joined, much to our delight, by not one but three resident rabbits. And so there we were laying on the grass, me holding Anas' collar of course, observing our company and enjoying every bit of it, hence, my opening title. Rabbit Hill is actually a beloved book from childhood.

Every morning and every evening we would see the rabbits appear on the knoll of the hill.

Upon first settling in one would truly think you were in a stunning countryside, certainly not 1 1/2 miles from the sea. I do believe this may well be the only rental on all of Nantucket to offer such a setting. Unique in everyway!

The home is so well-appointed that it is nearly impossible to note everything and for that do it justice!

Belle's Gift is just that, a beautiful gift extended to all who stay. And to the owners who so graciously share such a magical destination.

Cannot wait to visit once again.

Tranquil Nantucket Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We've been enjoying Nantucket for the past 20 years and this was the first year we've stayed in Quidnet. The location was not only great for avoiding much of the notorious summer traffic mid-island, but also a photographer's dream. From the moment we pulled up the shell driveway, we knew we found a nonpareil destination to get away from it all!

The vast, beautiful yard was perfect for outdoor fun as a family or peaceful summer reads at the back of the yard—alone in the hammock. The amenities were beyond ample, with high-end essentials provided...everything necessary to cook wonderful meals in the kitchen, grill on the patio or relax in comfort with the endless supply of luxurious linens and blankets throughout the house. The huge upstairs deck was our favorite spot for morning coffee, looking out over the beautiful landscape, where we'd watch our 3 boys and dog thoroughly enjoy morning play in the yard...and don't forget evening cocktails on the deck, watching the sunset—a definite must for anyone enjoying this home.

Between the beautifully furnished main house, comfortably quaint cottage and island location—you couldn't ask for a better setting to allow for rest and relaxation, nature excursions, bike rides to Quidnet beach (much quieter than most of the island beaches), and serene privacy to create wonderful family memories.

The owners have certainly created a "serene oasis" at Belle's Gift and we were grateful for Bob's warm and attentive nature, making sure our stay was first class. We can't wait to return!
