Nantucket – Home Services


Josh Barrantes is the owner and founder of Nantucket Home Services Inc. He was born in Costa Rica and emigrated to the United States in March of 2001 looking for better opportunities and the possibility of owning his business with a reliable team. During the past few years learning the trade and making connections with the best subcontractors allowed him to offer his clients reliable services from simple grocery shopping and delivery to a large property remodel.

As a handyman, his clients can rely on him to fix a number of things or simply arrange the right help. He`s always available upon request and rarely gives a negative answer about helping his clients.

Also, he helps elderly Nantucket residents and veterans with deep discounts on prices and sometimes at no cost.

Josh has been providing caretaking, light construction, and general contractor services to our family for nearly two decades – both before Josh founded Nantucket Home Services and ever since. Josh is incredibly responsive, has a keen sense of pragmatism and craftsmanship, and is able to tackle any size project. He routinely handles small projects for us, as well as routine services, or emergency services. He has also completed large jobs for our families, such as the complete interior and exterior renovation of our “early 80’s” 2000 SF guest house. Josh never disappoints. We couldn’t be happier customers Josh and Nantucket Home Services.”

Josh is incredibly reliable. Recently we had no way to get to the airport, so we had to drive our car and leave it at the airport. Although Josh was on another continent (literally), he was easy to reach and he made sure our car got back to our house – we didn’t even have to pay for parking because it was there for such a short amount of time!
