Description

Description

Near Main Street, bike paths, and Steps, Brant Point, Jetties and Children's Beaches is our quintessential Nantucket home located on an idyllic Belgian brick paved private lane. The central air conditioning is rarely needed as flower scented breezes flow through this bright and airy property.

We have a fully equipped modern kitchen complete with granite counter tops, new appliances, and Sub-Zero refrigerator. There are fresh linens and towels, crisp and tasteful furnishings, and four flat screen TVs. The house has broadband TV and Wifi. Our home abuts conservation protected land, so there are always an abundance of birds passing through our hydrangea filled garden.

The first floor is prefect for entertaining or sharing a cozy family evening. The welcoming front hall includes a gracious staircase, guest closet and powder room. To the left is a sunken living room that leads to a mud room at the rear of the house. The other side of the first floor offers a library stocked with an assortment of books and games for all ages. The Library flows into the dining room, breakfast room, kitchen and patio deck. The deck is fully furnished for an outdoor relaxation and dining after grilling dinner on our Weber gas grille. We set up badminton on our lawn for outdoor fun.

The second floor includes a generous landing and sitting area that leads to three bedrooms with en suite baths. The master bedroom includes high ceilings and a ceiling fan, king size bed, dressing room with ample closets, and a double sink bath. The other two bedrooms on the second floor each have a queen bed, their own baths, and large closets.

The third floor is one enormous room with its own bath, a double bed and twin bed, lots of storage space and room for inflatable mattresses. It is a favorite space for children and young families.
Our washer and dryer, backup refrigerator and utility sink are in our basement. We also have a ping pong table in the basement that is fun to use on a rainy day.

Included in our rental fee is the full-time care of our family friend and housekeeper who lives in the studio above our detached garage when we have guests. She provides cleaning, laundry, shopping, light cooking and cleanup support for our guests as well as babysitting for their children so parents can enjoy an evening out. She has been a part of our family for over two decades and is a veteran of the island so is a great resource for questions during your stay.
I also am able to be reached on my mobile anytime and provide all guests with my list of favorite Nantucket activities and locations.

We rented this house in August and had a wonderful stay. The home is close to town and has all modern amenities. The house is located on a quiet street but just a few minutes from the center of town so you have the best of both worlds. Our family and friends loved the ability to ride our bikes all over the island. The owner provided us with wonderful suggestions for activities, restaurants, beaches, etc. on the island. Their family friend who resides on the property was so sweet and helpful. She watched our children and just made us feel so welcome in the owner's beautiful property. We highly recommend this property and hope to stay there again. show more show less

We rented this house for a week in August and can't say enough good things. The house is beautifully appointed, but very comfortable. Our kids loved being able to walk to town and ride their bikes without worry. We really enjoyed having the housekeeper there as well - she is delightful, knowledgable and helpful. Will stay here again!

Our family had a wonderful vacation in Nantucket last July. We are still thinking about what a great time we had over a year later. The owner went above and beyond to make sure that our stay was perfect and that our one year old daughter was comfortable in their home. They provided various baby necessities and even had some toys for her to play with!

The home is beautiful, clean and comfortable. The neighborhood is peaceful and relaxing. We enjoyed being able to make the short walk to town but also have a short drive to many family friendly beaches. The owner also had wonderful suggestions that made our stay in Nantucket more enjoyable. We can't say enough kind words about their housekeeper who made sure all our needs were met. She was friendly, thoughtful and good with our young daughter. She was as available as we needed her to be without being intrusive on our family vacation. We highly recommend this vacation home in Nantucket. It's like staying at a 4 star resort in the privacy of your own home! show more show less

I found this home on VRBO the first day I looked at the website and was attracted to the pictures/decor immediately. We were so thrilled when we arrived that the house was as beautiful as the pictures. Really well built, very clean, updated and light airy colors. And the fact that it came with the owner's housekeeper was so great. We had our 2 1/2 year old grandson with us and having a babysitter who knew Nantucket so well and was delightful with our grandchild made it a relaxing vacation for us and his parents. We loved the street and the convenience to town and bike paths. The owners were also wonderful making sure to have baby equipment and toys for us. I agree 100% with the previous review. All true. I definitely would recommend it to my friends and family. We had previously always stayed on the beach and loved that. But now we're converts to in town living. Perfect for multi generational families. Everyone had the freedom to go and do, with ease. show more show less

We are a family of four who live outside Boston. We feel fortunate to have a beautiful home on Nantucket that we use all year round. It has been a joy to share our home with other families. Many of these families have returned year after year.

We have just cancelled our listing on VRBO because of the extra fees charged to home owners and renters so unfortunately our very favorable reviews were not able to be transferred. I will include some quotes from previous guests below: ''The house was beautifully appointed...kids loved being able to walk and ride their bikes without worry...enjoyed having the housekeeper...she was available but not intrusive...it's like staying at a 4 star resort in the privacy of your own home...we will stay there again...''. And they are in fact returning this August.

What is special about this property?
Apart form it's comfort and cleanliness our beautifully appointed home is extremely conveniently located in walking distance between town and some of the most beautiful beaches on Nantucket. We are also avid bikers and enjoy riding on the Cliff bike path for a fun ride. Our street is also very conveniently located for driving in any direction to avoid some of the worst summer traffic.

And certainly, the help that our guests receive from our housekeeper during their stay has been extremely well received by previous visitors. Many parents and children return year after year to see our beloved family friend who takes such good care of each guest.

I am also a very involved and helpful owner and act as a remote concierge if guests have questions about island activities, rentals, or reservations. Before arrival, I always send each guest a list of my favorite recommended activities on island and remain in touch whenever needed. We also have an on-island caretaker who provides support to our housekeeper when I am not on island.

What is special about your town?
Nantucket is quite simply one of the most beautiful islands I have ever seen. The summer community is very active and there is a vast variety of activities to please any number of interests. If you enjoy live theater, star gazing, nature walks, historical tours, art classes or quite anything else you might imagine, you will love Nantucket because all of these activities take place over a backdrop of glorious seaside and pastural nature. I hope you have the opportunity to enjoy Nantucket and our home.
