6/10 Good

The room was very small, hard to move around, no folding or luggage stand, so we had to put our carry on on the floor and the worst part was the bathroom. Water will not drain properly, so I had to wait a while and let it drain every couple minutes while taking a shower.

Life House is a must stay!
The Life House is beautifully decorated, every detail thoughtful and quirky. The spaces are clean and felt comfortable to be in. The outdoor spaces are adorable and fun to escape to. Celso and Maddie are very hospitable, and always greeting us with a smile. Delicious cocktails and s'mores at night, and light breakfast in the morning. Only bummer was no bikes available for use, but we rented downtown. Overall a must stay experience you won't forget!

Life hack: Choose Life House.
The stay at Life House was exceptional in every sense of the world. The rooms were lovely with amazing details, the staff went above and beyond (for a birthday celebration), and the location was fantastic. Highly recommend if planning to stay on Nantucket Island.
