Description

Si Bheag Si Mhor (shuh-BIG-shuh-moor) is a beautiful, 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom home located on the south shore side of Nantucket Island, in the residential neighborhood known as Surfside. Entrance to the property is via a white clamshell driveway.

The name Si Bheag Si Mhor is Gaelic (Irish) and although there are some discrepancies over the history-it's commonly translated as ''so big so little''. When I built the house, my son who was so little and a budding violinist, and I (so big). I knew over time that our roles would reverse he would grow so big, and I diminished in older age, so little...Quarterboards are iconic features of Nantucket homes, reflecting the owner or the area of the island, often with good stories attached. I wanted to find something that spoke of my son and I. I settled on this name as my son was playing fiddle tunes, and I loved the story of Turlough OCarolan, who was blind and got his musical education paid for by a lovely lady of means, she knew he could only provide for himself if he had a skill. He wrote many tunes, but this may be his best known tune-you can listen to many versions of it on youtube!

The home has a beautiful covered porch with glider. Enter the house and the gourmet kitchen is on your right with a dining area surrounded by windows. Enjoy the Wolff Stove and Subzero refrigerator while cooking in this well equipped, beautiful, mahogany kitchen. On the east side of the house, there is a stone patio with a gas grill and outside dining table and chairs for six people. To the left is the living room, which is comfortable and cool in the summer as the house has central air conditioning. On the main floor, there is one bedroom with a queen bed and en suite bathroom. Upstairs, there are two bedrooms - the first has twin beds and en suite bath, and the second is the master suite with a walk-in closet, king bed, and en suite bath with ''Tea for Two'' soaking tub and a separate shower.

Si Bheag Si Mhor is immaculately clean, has matching good quality linens, is well maintained, and nicely landscaped. In addition to central AC, amenities include cable TV, Internet, a BBQ grill, and an outdoor shower. The property also comes equipped with beach towels, beach chairs, umbrella, and cooler.

This home is located in a pastoral section of the Surfside neighborhood, surrounded by wildflower/grass meadow and large, well-groomed lawns. The house is 10 minute walk to the beach or drive there in about three minutes, and 10 minutes to town, shopping, restaurants and nightlife.

Fantastic family vacation spot

Our family of five rented here last June and had a fantastic week. The house is in immaculate condition and is peaceful and secluded. All of the bedrooms are comfortable and the gourmet kitchen is stocked with great equipment and amenities. It's a 15 minute walk to Surfside Beach and a short ride to town. Galen is a wonderful hostess and a pleasure to rent from. We give Si Bheag Si Mhor five stars and recommend it to anyone looking for a great spot in Nantucket!

I have deep island roots. Many of my family ancestors and current family members worked or are working in merchant marine, farming, local government, law, local farm and education. Nantucket is a very special place to me. I grew up on the south shore of the island where my family owned and operated Mt. Vernon Farm for many years. Most of this land our family sold to conservation within the last 30 years. My parents owned and operated a summer cottage rental business for 20 years, and eventually sold it. I grew up catering to rental clients and so feel that I offer a quality rental that is charming, clean and well-maintained. I want your trip to be special, so please let me know what I can do to make this happen for you.

What is special about this property?
My property is centrally located yet is very pastoral and quiet. I think the architecture of the house and grounds is quite pleasing. The house was custom built, and it is the third house I have built on the island. It's very easy to get to the beach, and lovely to see the stars at night or hear the sound of the surf as it lulls you to sleep. Although I grew up in the Cisco area, I absolutely love Surfside - much quieter! This is a great family vacation rental, and you will be glad you have chosen it. I have rented this house every summer since 2006 and have met wonderful people who always tell me that they enjoy staying here and my attention to detail. This is a high quality rental!

What is special about your town?
Nantucket. It's so special - home to unique glacial land formations, bird, animal and insect populations. Beaches that are pristine, national treasures that are local to we who live here and a delight to those who visit. We have a unique maritime history that is such a wonderful thing to share with a young family, as well as great restaurants, health club facilities and boutique shopping in the core district. In addition we have miles of beautiful bike paths, and lots of preserved green space throughout the island. There are an incredible array of water options available: water skiing, wake boarding, tubing, sailing, windsurfing, kite boarding, kayaking, swimming. In addition we have many summer children's camps that focus on athletics, dance, gymnastics or science through the Maria Mitchell programs. Biking, hiking, and running are also popular with a variety of small road races throughout the season. We have many summer festivals including film, wine, yoga, Nantucket Cottage Hospital benefit. Incomparable sunsets, and bright beautiful stars!
