Thank you so much considering The Monkey Barrel for your home while visiting Nantucket. We call this house “The Monkey Barrel” because with all of the fun, laughter, and antics that take place while we’re at the beach…this house sometimes happily feels like a barrel of monkeys!

Two bedrooms include a master with a king bed and comfy reading area, and the second offers two full beds with luxury linens. Shared full bath with new cast iron tub and custom tile.

Ample parking in house’s driveway for 3+ cars. A quick 2 mile bike ride or walk to Surfside beach and 1 mile to downtown Nantucket on bike trail across the street from the house! Shuttle bus stop half a block away. Convenient location close to town and beaches, restaurants and shopping.

Great experience

  • 5 of 5

The house was exactly as advertised - great location, comfortable for a large group to stay, very well kept-up. Unfortunately the weather kept us from using the grill, but it looks great too. Kirby was very communicative and made it easy for us. No hesitations recommending it!

The PERFECT Nantucket Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough good things about the owners or the Monkey Barrel itself. Kirby was extremely responsive, organized and professional, making the stay very easy. The property is immaculate from the inside out, and is completely stocked with every accoutrement you can think of. The home was very clean, the appliances are high end, and (my personal favorite!) the Monkey Barrel has an amazing hot tub and backyard. Location is perfect as you are within short walk of 2 cafes (45 Surfside and Yummy), a bicycle rental shop, and still close to town. I am so grateful that we found this property - by FAR the best value on the island for a completely updated home with this guest capacity. Thank you Kirby and family for the wonderful hospitality and for allowing us to experience your wonderful spot.

Great House - So great I keep going back

  • 5 of 5

I've had the pleasure of staying at the Monkey Barrel on more than one occasion over several different summers. It's centrally located on the island that makes for easy access to Surfside Beach on the south side of Nantucket (by the bike path or a short cab ride) and easy walk into town for a night out. The house is gorgeous, recently renovated with high end appliances/outdoor deck and high end gas grill, and of course, the HOT TUB! Bedrooms on three separate floors and a sitting area upstairs gives people privacy to relax (or god forbid have to escape to do some work while on vacation). Kitchen is fully equipped with pots, pans, knives, grilling utensils and so on if you like to stay in and cook as a group. I'm sure I'll be back when I can!

Beautiful house, central location for all ACK fun

  • 5 of 5

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 not my first stay at the Monkey Barrel and hopefully won't be my last.
