Surfside Nantucket House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 2 1/2 bathrooms, property sleeps 9

(**Please note that this property owner does NOT advertise on

Craig's List. Any listing on Craig's List referring to this property named 'Never Better' is not legitimate).

Charming Nantucket home, named 'Never Better', is located in mid-Island Nantucket in a beautiful, pristine neighborhood. 1.3 miles from Town and 2 miles from 4 very different, gorgeous Nantucket beaches. 'Never Better' is located across the street from exquisite conservation property which has a walking path that leads directly to the beach. This beach is only 1 mile away. Decorated with Nantucket colors, this lovely home is tastefully decorated to reflect the flavor of the Island. Landscaping design includes Island-famous hydrangeas, rosa rugosa and trellises with burgundy color roses. Spectacular 50' deck and outside shower also in back of the house. Spacious rooms, open floor plan conducive to entertaining. A sure recipe for a great vacation!

The Owner of this property also owns an advertising company, named Entree To Boston, that caters to the restaurant industry. If you need any restaurant recommendations, please do not hesitate to ask since the Owner, Deb, is well-versed on Nantucket restaurants!

This property is also located near Miacomet Pond! You can walk on an exquisite walking path through conservation property which leads you directly to Miacomet Pond and the beach!

**Please note that there is a large Sub-Zero Refrigerator in the basement for additional refrigeration space

for food and beverages. Great for entertaining needs!

**We have a 'shared condiment' option. In the large Sub-Zero Refrigerator in the basement, there are many condiments. Guests are welcome to share these condiments and are asked to replace any item that they

have used up. Guests are encouraged to leave any condiments left over from their vacation that they wish, and place them in this refrigerator. This is a very popular idea which has been greatly praised and appreciated by our guests because it saves a substantial amount of money from having to invest in each and every item individually.

From RENTER REVIEWS, the MOST POPULAR feature of our home is the 50' deck!

The bedrooms and bathroom upstairs have been newly painted with uplifting Nantucket colors and Nantucket historical colors. There is new tiling in the kitchen which resembles sand and adds yet another distinctive Nantucket accent, in addition to sand in the family room paint, otherwise known

as Ralph Lauren's 'River Rock' paint.

The 50' deck, which has also been called the 'Never Better landing strip' since it is so expansive, is the number 1

mentioned accolade from our renter reviews. It actually creates the equivalent of an extra 2 large rooms of space outside for guests to enjoy. With new wrought iron furniture and pots of beautiful flowers, there is plenty of 'eye candy' for our guests to enjoy. Watching the stars at night at 'Never Better' is almost as good as being at the Maria Mitchell Observatory on the Island. The stars absolutely sparkle and shine vividly from our location.

Owner provides top notch cable service and WIFI internet access

There is a beautiful public golf course, Miacomet Golf Course, located approximately 1 1/2 miles from 'Never

Better'. It has a great course and also, as a bonus, has a fabulous restaurant which is a bit of a 'hidden gem'.

Highly recommended by golfers and diners!

Certainly is Never Better

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful stay my friends and I had at Never Better. We went for the famous Christmas stroll weekend, and the house was all decorated for christmas, including a christmas tree, garland, and other beautiful decorations spread throughout the house. It really made us feel like we were at home. Deb is such a gracious host and so lovely to work with. I would hands down recommend this place to anyone, you will be very happy.

Best Vacation Ever, Never Better

  • 5 of 5

I was planning a trip with my family - my wife and kids, my parents and my brother and needed a place that was good for the whole family. From the moment I spoke with Deb, I knew we were in good hands. She was so caring and inquisitive about my family and suggested activities that would be great for us. She followed up with emails to make sure that our visit would be perfect. The house is very warm and welcoming, and was exactly what we were looking for. The children enjoyed the deck and the yard and we all enjoyed the outdoor shower. The house is in great condition, very clean and well cared for. The layout of the house is warm and open downstairs with a great living room and large dining room, perfect for all of us to be together. The house was well stocked from beach chairs and boogie boards to beach toys for our kids. Great location, near town, near Miacomet beach and Miacomet Golf course. We loved the house and Deb and are counting down the days until our return next year.

You'll Never Have it Better!

  • 5 of 5

I don't usually take the time to write reviews, but in this case I had no choice because it was a trip of a lifetime! I rented this house as part of my 40th birthday/ girls getaway and it could not have been a more relaxing, enjoyable and accommodating experience. Deb, the owner couldn't do more to make us feel special and assist us in every way. She has great restaurant recommendations, she sent us fresh flowers - I mean the woman is a treasure! The house is super adorable, spacious and in a great location! Never Better is filled with everything you could ever need in the kitchen, bikes and even fully stocked on things like TP :) We loved Never Better and Nantucket so much that we are looking to make this an annual trip! Total bargain for the price!

Beautiful and Amazing trip to "Never Better"

  • 5 of 5

I arrived to 'Never Better' last Thursday morning with my sister and best girl friends for a long weekend girls get-away. When we pulled up in the driveway we knew we were in for treat just looking at the great yard and patio, but the interior was just as great. You feel welcomed and at home immediately. There was plenty of comfortable sleeping space for each of us and the kitchen was great for cooking for our group. We were just a short distance to Barlett's Farm and Cisco Brewery- which are a must see, i think we went every day of our trip. The beach isn't too far and town is just a short bike ride! I can't wait for our next trip to the island- I will definitely be in touch with the owner for my next visit! She was a most wonderful host, and though we've never met, she made my group and I feel so welcomed and that I cannot say enough about! Thank you, 'Never Better' for an unforgettable weekend!

Best Rental Experience EVER!

  • 5 of 5

We rented “Never Better” for the Christmas Stroll weekend. We were looking for a cozy home with great Nantucket charm, and boy did we luck out finding “Never Better”! It was perfect in ALL aspects. The size of the home slept 9 comfortably and it was very family friendly. The home was immaculate and everything was in great working condition. Because it was so chilly out, we spent a lot of time inside the home cooking meals together as a family and then enjoying them around the dining room table. The location of the house was perfect. The neighborhood was quiet and quaint and it was just a quick little drive to get into town. I wish we could have taken advantage of the beautiful deck outside, but the cold weather kept us bundled up by the fireplace (which wasn’t such a bad thing at all!).

My favorite part about our experience with “Never Better” would have to be the dealings with the extremely gracious homeowner, Deb, and ALL that she did to make us feel SO very welcome in her treasured home. Words can’t describe how wonderful she was to work with in planning our trip. Once we walked through the door, we could tell how much she wanted us to enjoy every second we were there. The home was beautifully decorated for Christmas, which really put us in the Holiday spirit! Deb went above and beyond what we would have ever dreamed a homeowner would do for their renters. And I can’t thank her enough for all that she did to make the trip EXTRA special for my 4 year old son (and for my birthday too!). Deb, you are the best! : )

This is definitely going to be our “go to” home each and every time we visit the island! We can’t wait go back when the weather is warmer so we can really enjoy all that it has to offer!!

A Great Week at Never Better

  • 5 of 5

House is exactly as described. Comfortable, well-stocked and convenient to island attractions. Deck and yard were perfect for my 5 year old. We stayed for a week in late September and the weather was gorgeous and the island wasn't too crowded. We took the walk through the preserve to the beach, went to the Cisco Brewery and the store at Bartlett Farms for sandwiches (great store and nice alternative to Stop and Shop). Also went to the Whaling Museum - very interesting and rented Jeeps and went to Great Point. Would definitely stay here again.
