Description

Welcome to Sea Castle! We care about YOU and your vacation and look forward to helping you plan your time on Nantucket! We welcome many of the same families year after year, and take pride in personally helping you plan the best time possible!

Overlooking the romantic moors of the south shore of Nantucket Island, ideally located between town and the fishing village of Sconset, you can hear the waves crashing in the distance. Situated on a quiet beach road, just five miles from the bustling Nantucket town, we offer privacy and solace in an intimate seaside neighborhood. Conveniently located minutes from one the most beautiful, pristine and secluded beaches on Nantucket. This house is not a generic rental home, and the owners are constantly remodeling and upgrading to give their guests the best vacation experience possible at this very special island retreat. We believe that hospitality and homes go hand in hand; when you stay at Sea Castle, no minor detail is overlooked.

This 2000 square foot classic shingled beach house offers windows galore that make you feel as if you are outside all year long. Spotlessly clean and impeccably maintained, this lovely home features a classic island ''upside down'' design, a light and airy living area with air conditioning, hand-painted seascape murals, custom tile work, freshly cut hydrangeas from the garden, country pine and white furniture, antique artifacts, an extensive collection of Nantucket fiction and history books by local authors, cathedral ceilings with beams, fireplaces in the living room, master bedroom and brand new sunroom, reclaimed oak flooring, upgraded stainless steel appliances in the kitchen with a huge granite island, two south facing decks, a rich, soothing cranberry master bedroom with an oversized king bed, attached screened in solarium and its own private entrance. There is a safe for your valuables, fun and current beach reads, two irons, great toys, baby equipment (high chair, booster seat, nursery monitor and a pack-n-play), even popsicles in the freezer await you!
There are three air-conditioned bedrooms on the ground floor featuring firm high quality mattresses, Somus Sleep supreme memory foam comfort pillows in both master and guest rooms, plus a full loft on the third floor (accessible by ship's ladder; no a/c) offering a queen sleeper sofa. Your home away from home!

We leave nothing to chance regarding comfort and convenience for our guests, with appointments in every room and special attention to details. We even offer our own private Nantucket nanny, for those evenings out in town! The hot tub off the large guest bedroom deck bubbles under the starry Nantucket sky; rinse off in the adjacent enclosed outdoor shower, if desired, or move on to the stone patio with a fire table and Adirondack chairs, a sauna and outdoor bar area!

Houseguests enjoy amenities including a welcome gift, a wine and cheese/tapas platter on the afternoon of arrival, linens, terry cloth robes, bath towels, beach towels, beach chairs, two beach umbrellas, rain umbrellas, coolers, boogie boards, pails, shovels, gas barbeque, Cuisinart, Playstation 2, Wii, four TV's (featuring Comcast digital magazines, a huge video/DVD library), board and card games, and a large fully landscaped fenced-in yard with a large back deck, fire table covered by twelve foot cantilever with heater and lights, infrared sauna and huge hot tub to relax in.

Far enough from the crowds in Nantucket, yet closer to the supermarket and other services than most other outlying areas on the island. Bike paths will take you either to the picturesque village of Sconset or to the more than 80 miles of Nantucket beaches. The Tom Nevers area of the island features natural foliage, a surrounding ring of conservation land, expansive views and miles of secluded beaches. Upside down houses with sizable yards and spacious decks are scattered throughout this wide expanse, home to a mix of year-round and summer residents. Despite its density, Tom Nevers has a rural atmosphere. You might hear a rooster crow and many bird species enjoy this natural habitat. At the end of Tom Nevers Road, there is a playground on the former Navy base. Tom Nevers and its road along the bluff are close to the beautiful beach and approximately ten minutes from mid-island shopping. The higher elevation and gentle rises offer cooler breezes than the rest of the island.

Tom Nevers/Madequesham beaches are only 1.8 miles from home and offers some of the best surfing and fishing on the island, (without the summer crowds). Other popular beaches can be reached via the shuttle bus that stops just down the street at the intersection of Tom Nevers and Milestone Roads. We are one mile away from two of the best golf courses in the world. The town is an easy twenty minute bike ride or ten minute bus ride away.
Take your four-wheel drive out to secluded Great Point to fish and see the sunrise! Enjoy numerous shops and restaurants, museums, library, art galleries, live theater and entertainment. Try a historic stroll or even a ghost walk at night! At the wharves you can sign up for fishing trips or join available bus, taxi or walking tours of the island.
If you like quiet enjoyment of nature, relax on our upstairs deck overlooking the moors, grill out some fresh fish gazing at the ocean or try star-gazing from our telescope at night! Fogged in? Our house offers so many games and activities for your entire family to enjoy! Have an amazing vacation at Sea Castle.

    Heaven on Earth

    We have been renting Sea Castle for years, and it is by far the best rental on the island in my opinion! I love waking up and having my coffee outside listening to the birds. We loved the hot tub after a long day at the beach! It is just such a special place and Christine and Karl take such pride in their house! We can't wait to go back!

    The warmest and most welcoming home

    I can't say enough good things about this fabulous home and its hosts. In person, it was even lovelier, cozier, sunnier, and more spacious than I had hoped. The house was spotless and so comfortable. Even our children remarked upon how well they slept in the beds! The kids' room with the bunk beds and toys was such a fun bonus. We enjoyed the hot tub one night - really nice after a day at the beach! The hospitality was top notch - we have rented so many vacation homes and Christine is the very best hostess. She gave us so much helpful information and all of the lovely and thoughtful welcome gifts were so sweet. I only wish we could have stayed longer! Couldn't recommend more highly. show more show less

    Welcoming home

    I was astonished by the complete packet of information that the owners sent us prior to our arrival. That thoughtfulness continued with a welcome surprise in the kitchen and an attentiveness through out our stay. The house itself has this beautiful upstairs family room that more than satisfied our needs with most comfortable bedrooms downstairs. The hot tub, sauna were enjoyed after some beautiful days at the beach and other activities. And, such fun, the house is stuffed with books both fiction and nonfiction in case of a moment of leisure.
    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

    Quintessential Nantucket

    Everything about the house and hosts were top notch. We received tons of information about beaches, restaurants, grocery stores and things to do on Nantucket before we even got on a plane. The house is even better than the pictures. The beds were comfortable and there's plenty of space to hang out in the living room. We used the jacuzzi almost every day. The hosts left us an amazing welcome basket filled with all sorts of goodies. I would absolutely recommend this vacation spot! We loved it so much we are planning a yearly trip every summer show more show less

    Best Place on Earth

    We have been renting Sea Castle for many years and always look forward to coming back every year! The owners take such pride in this house and it has everything you could possibly need! The yard is so amazingly peaceful and the house is so cozy! You feel like you are in your home away from home! The homeowner is always so helpful in providing suggestions and is available if needed. We look forward to next year!

    Wonderful property!

    This trip was our first time visiting Nantucket and we loved our stay at Sea Castle. It was far enough from town to feel like an escape from the crowds yet still close to everything we wanted to do. The property is impeccably maintained and was exactly as listed/pictured. We found things to be very well-stocked, extremely clean and comfortable.

    Delightful Stay

    We enjoyed a wonderful Nantucket vacation staying at this comfortable Tom Nevers home. The owner was very welcoming, sharing helpful island information before our arrival and gifting a welcome basket with yummy treats at our check in.

    The bedrooms were very comfortable and kitchen well supplied with cooking, serving and storage items. The 2 full bathrooms plus outdoor shower made getting refreshed after a day at the beach very convenient.

    I loved my daily morning walk to the local and quiet Tom Nevers beach and we all loved our visits to the many quaint treasures throughout the island. show more show less

    Magical!!

    We had the most amazing vacation! This is by far the most well-appointed vacation home we have ever rented. The owners literally thought of everything. From the fantastic welcoming gift, to the daily fun of enjoying the beautiful house, this was our favorite vacation ever. We used the hot tub every day and had cocktails on the deck every night.

    I highly recommend this vacation home to anyone and everyone!

    Perfect Stay at Sea Castle

    My husband and I stayed at Sea Castle for a week in celebration of our 1st wedding anniversary and my birthday. The house far exceeded our already high expectations! As we walked through it for the first time, we just kept saying, "Wow!" The house is incredibly clean, stocked with everything you need, and decorated down to the smallest details. Christine was an incredible host, from the packet of Nantucket information she mailed to us ahead of time, to the wine, cheese & crackers, birthday cake and welcome gifts she left for us upon our arrival. Having use of a private hot tub felt so luxurious, and we spent almost every night in it gazing up at all the stars--it was honestly perfect. My parents came for one night, and said it was the nicest rental on Nantucket they have ever stayed in (they have been going to Nantucket since the 70s). They already want to stay there again next year. If we are lucky enough to visit the island again in the future, we would stay at Sea Castle without hesitation. show more show less

    What is it like to be in love with where you live? Let us count the ways . . . We have been Nantucket homeowners since 1993. Tired of the 'shuffle' back and forth, we sold our Seneca Castle, New York six bedroom farmhouse, moving here full-time from the Finger Lakes area in September 2007. It was hands down the best thing we ever did! Karl owns a property management company on island and Christine owns a private family psychotherapy practice. We love hosting families who come to visit the island and pride ourselves on going the extra mile to make sure their long-awaited vacation is everything they have dreamed of. From fishing advice to helping find babysitters, because we are on-island, we are here to help you. You will not find another rental home that offers the personalized touch quite like ours. We take your vacation seriously and love getting to know families that return year after year.
    We chose to build in the Tom Nevers area because we love the solitude and peace it offers. You can bike or walk to the beach easily. Years before, when we used to rent, we would stay in town. Although this offered convenience because we could walk to the downtown area, we craved sunlight and respite from the traffic and noise summer crowds bring. We can now spend a lovely day at the beach, surfing and whale watching, and continue to enjoy nature well after we return home, as we sit on our upstairs deck and enjoy a cocktail as the sun sets. What could be better than this?






    What is special about this property?
    What makes this House unique?
    The main living area is all windows, and there is nothing quite like that first peek out on Nantucket in the morning, while everyone still sleeps. Its like our piece of heaven, scenic and tranquil. And, of course, everyone's favorite is the hot tub, infrared sauna and fire table! We live on the next property over, but will always respect your privacy. Having an owner close by allows you to enjoy some of Sea Castle's unique features, including a spotlessly clean and organized home, live indoor plants, fish tank. koi pond, hot tub, gift bag and homemade curated cheese and charcuterie platter with marinated olives, dips, dried fruit and nuts upon arrival. We LOVE to spoil our guests!
