Surfside Nantucket House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms each with own bath, pool, cabana, loft and carriage house

We have a great upside down house just steps (200 yards) from Nantucket's best beach, Fisherman's Beach, in Surfside.

MAJOR REMODEL NOW UNDERWAY, lead by Nantucket's top architecture firm, BPC Architects. FOR SUMMER 2014 WE WILL HAVE A COMFORTABLE, FUN, FAMILY-FRIENDLY, MODERN BEACH HOUSE WITH A BEAUTIFUL POOL AND CABANA. We're putting in a new top of the line kitchen and adding en suite baths (with carrara marble) attached to all four main bedrooms. The kitchen will have SubZero, Dacor and Asko appliances, as well as stone countertops. We're adding a 40-foot salt-water swimming pool with a tanning ledge, a pool-side cabana with bar, game room, play lofts, bathroom, second washer/dryer for towels and an outdoor shower. We're also adding a new carriage house with a nanny suite above. Central air conditioning will be installed in the main house and we're adding on a study off the living room for those times on vacation when you need to make a conference call or just need a moment away. The study is not only for work with a desk and top-end wi-fi, it will have a new bath and a game table for puzzles and a balcony overlooking the pool. In addition to the new outdoor shower in the cabana, there will be a private outdoor shower grotto accessed directly from the master bath. In addition to the pool and cabana house, there' s large, flat and very green grassy yard for young and old to enjoy. Of course for rainy days, there will be new flat screen TVs throughout. I've put the architecture plans on-line in the photo section if you'd like to see them.

Ocean views from the upper floor, and hear the ocean at night in all four spacious bedrooms downstairs. The large yard is surrounded by hedges giving you privacy. There's an underground sprinkler system to keep the grass thick and green making it an ideal play area for kids and adults alike. The gorgeous gardens bloom throughout summer with fragrant New Dawn climbing roses and blue hydrangea.

Five new mahogany outdoor decks offer a great place to get the ocean breeze and grill your freshly caught fish or a steak from Bartlett's Farm. Star-gazing at night is amazing with clarity like no place else. Easy bike or walk to town and close to bus stop. The house is also close to town for shopping and restaurants.

Well trained dogs will be considered. Please email if you have any questions.

We purchased this house in Surfside in Spring 2013. We've been coming to Nantucket for years. Summer without Nantucket just isn't summer.

Kent Knutson purchased this house in 2013

There's no better beaches on Nantucket than Surfside, Fisherman's and Nobadeer which are all very close to this house. We love our sunny days at the beach, and s'mores by a firepit at sunset. There's nothing better than listening to the waves at night with a glass of wine after a big day playing in the surf and sand.

A major remodel was just approved by the Town, with significant improvements to the house and the addition of a pool and cabana with a bar, grill area and a game room as well as a carriage house.

This home is as comfortable as can be with a great yard for my kids to play in, and four bedrooms and baths. We arrived and met Jim the caretaker, a New Englander who has lived on the island for more than 20 years now, and a welcome letter with a bottle of the owners wine.

the house has the living space upstairs, with gorgeous ocean views and the bedrooms downstairs, We sat on the deck watching the sunset, enjoying our wine and waited for our dinner to warm. The kitchen is modern with all the conveniences of home. We started a fire as the air cooled at nightfall and enjoyed a meal with the crackle of a fire.

The sunset lingered for quite a while and then the stars came out! what an incredible show. I cant wait to go back!

This house is a short 200 yard walk to the beach. It is close enough that you can run up from the beach for sandwiches or to grab the wine for a sunset toast on the beach. It is also close to town, the bike path, the bus stop, Miacomet Golf, tennis and great shopping. Large decks with gas-BBQ overlook the robust roses and hydrangea spilling out of the garden. Watch your kids play wiffleball on the lawn while you catch the sunset. You can see the ocean down the path and listen to the waves break from your bed!
