Overall, White Elephant is the quintessential New England/ Nantucket vacation with variety of lodging option and offering luxury amenities of larger resorts. The location and setting cannot be beat. The service was excellent. It could use a bit of tighter management of care of property as to the guest it is evident that it is in hard use such that the price of stay is not entirely justified.

excellent, worth the money
Our stay was amazing. Too short. the amenities, room, and staff were all excellent. It was so great to have the shuttle to all of the local beaches along with chairs, towels, and umbrellas. Pool was great as well. Room service was also very delicious!
