About the property

4 Bedrooms/2.5 Baths, Sleeps 8

Bula Cottage is on a tree-lined street that is perfectly situated in town: a five minute walk to some of Nantucket's best restaurants, Main Street, and the ferry; a ten minute walk to Jetties, Children's, Steps, and Brandt Point Beaches; and convenient to bike paths and the exclusive Cliff area.

Antique pine floors and a fireplace add charm to the nice-sized living room -- you can enjoy watching the large flat-screen t.v. or work a puzzle on the game table. The dining room is graced with antique pine floors and a crystal ship-shaped chandelier. The dining table will fit all eight guest comfortably. You will find our kitchen updated and equipped to handle all of your cooking needs. A half bath is situated between the dining room and kitchen. A large master bedroom with a king-sized bed and an en suite bath completes the first floor.

The second floor has three bedrooms-- two bedrooms have twin beds and one bedroom has a queen. The upstairs bathroom with toilet, sink, and shower over tub, has a washer and dryer discretely tucked away for your convenience.

Enjoy Nantucket's nice weather on the patio. There is a table with six chairs, 2 chaise lounges, and a gas grill for outdoor dining, or for relaxing with a good book.

**Also, if you are wondering about the name Bula let me explain: Bula is a word used in Fiji much like the word Aloha is used in Hawaii. Bula literally means life and is most commonly used as a greeting. Using it as a greeting is to wish someone happiness and good health -- what more could you ask for!

About Carla

We were born and raised in the South but have lived in San Francisco, California for over 25 years. We have two children in college and a dog, Thor.

Carla purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Carla chose Cliff

We love Nantucket and have enjoyed visiting the island over the past few years. I started looking at property a couple of summers ago when I was on-island. I continued my search throughout the fall and winter by checking out all of the island's new listings daily. When this house came on the market I finally got on a plane. I fell in love with the house's charm and the location is perfect!

We loved staying at Bula Cottage. We were a party of 6 adults and two children (three generations), and we enjoyed staying at this well-appointed property. At the northern edge of town, it was an easy walk to all the fun spots including Children's Beach and the Whaling Museum. The owner, Carla, was very responsive and helpful, even giving me restaurant recommendations and advice on bike rentals; she couldn't have been nicer. We needed the convenience of a house because of a toddler and baby, and staying at this lovely and clean property felt special. We hope to return someday. Highly recommended!

Wonderful Nantucket Getaway

This property was immaculate, beautifully furnished and very close to downtown. The owners were fantastic to work with. Can't say enough about this property.

Perfect! Stop looking & stay here.

  • 5 of 5

Bula Cottage is a special place. Beautiful decor, immaculate, stocked with everything you need for a perfect vacation on Nantucket. We stayed for 3 nights on a girlfriends' weekend in April. The kitchen is small but perfectly laid out for meal prep, all appliances & equipment are top notch. The living room is large and comfortable. Master bedroom with en suite bath is also spacious and the mattress & linens are very comfortable. The heated bathroom floors are a very nice touch. Upstairs bedrooms are on the smaller side (not unusual in an older house). They were also well-appointed & everyone agreed the beds were great. Wi-fi worked great the whole time we were there which is always a plus. You can walk to just about everything in town; while some of us walked with our luggage from the ferry, I'd recommend taking a cab. Carla is excellent to deal with - friendly & great communication. Our only disappointment was the weather, spring was a long time coming to New England this year. Would stay here again and would recommend to friends!

Nantucket House

We had a wonderful stay at your home on Nantucket. It was just perfect! We especially liked sitting out back in the yard having our morning coffee - so peaceful. Can't wait to go back and would highly recommend staying at your lovely home!
