Splendidly located in the centre of town and a short jaunt on the complimentary bikes (or hotel car if you prefer) to the beach, the WE Village is a relaxing haven from the hustle and bustle of the bars, shops and restaurants and a pared down luxurious retreat from a day on the beach or the water. We (dad and and 3 teenage girls) stayed in a two bed residence with 2 bathrooms and a kitchen/lounge. Quality furnishings and accoutrements throughout. It is pricey but if you have no complaints, maybe it’s worth it. See you next year.

We arrived on Sunday for the last day of the Wine festival. The staff was more than accommodating. They took our bags and held them for us because we arrived early. The rooms and bed were so inviting. No complaints here. The private van brought us to Ferry on Monday am. We will definitely be back again! Thank you

We are property owners on Nantucket and booked a one bedroom residence when our home was rented. This place is true luxury with the same service of our favorite four seasons Hotel. We arrived with a toddler and infant in tow. We were welcomed by an incredibly friendly staff and any travel stress was quickly dissipated. A crib was set up in the room along with a few toys and special surprises that delighted our toddler. The pool is great for kids with the snack bar and a chest full of pool toys. There were several other kids our sons age and he was able to play with them And make friends. Our one-bedroom residence was large and we liked having a washer dryer and full-size refrigerator. We highly recommend this for anyone traveling with children that would like to be in town. It’s great for a few days. Before kids we liked to stay at the Cliffside beach club. Their location is unbeatable if you like to be right on the beach. But they are not as family friendly, for example they offer very limited pool hours for children ( just two hours a day) and don’t have the same amenities.

Dear IslandGirl102616; Thank you for choosing the White Elephant when your home was rented! It is nice to do a "staycation" sometimes isn't it? We do provide complimentary cribs and pack and plays for our youngest of guests and of course the pool is a big attraction! We hope to welcome you again soon. Sincerely, Bettina Landt General Manager

The room was great, double sinks in the bathroom, nice big shower, turn down service, chocolate covered cherries, chocolates on the pillow. Amazingly comfortable sheets and king bed. Added perks of ice cream and fruit at the pool, coffee, croissants, and cookies in the lobby. The shuttle service from the ferry and car service was also great. Looking to go back soon!

I have stayed at the White Elephant but not the Residence. I was very impressed starting with the pick-up service staff at the Fast Ferry, the moving of our luggage and friendly nature of the driver. We arrived at the Residence and was greeted with smiles and warm cookies. The room was nicely appointed, super super clean with ample space. The bedding was comfortable like sleeping on a cloud. The front desk could not have been niceer. There is no food service at the residence however the main hotel is around the corner plus 100's of other places to eat. I found nothing negative in our stay except I would have liked to have stayed longer.

Dear X7828YEmarkc; Thank you for taking the time to write about your stay. The Residences are indeed lovely. They provide the extra space for our guests when needed. It is often so nice to have the full sized refridgerator and a dining table etc. We hope you stay longer next year! Sincerely, Bettina Landt General Manager
