CHARMING HOME 'NEVER BETTER'--BEST RATES AND VALUE ON ISLAND!

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!

Best Rental Experience EVER!

  • Submitted: Dec 12, 2013

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

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.

The moment I walked into the house I thought, "This is the house I want!" The pictures do not do justice to how nice and relaxing this home is. The inside and outside of the home was well maintained, manicured and clean! Its location truly is convenient to everything. The size of the home easily accommodated 7 sisters and still had a warm cozy feel to it. Thanks Deb to a wonderful home on beautiful Nantucket! Can't wait to return!

I had the opportunity to stay at Never Better over Columbus Day weekend for a girls' getaway, and what a treat it was. Everything about our stay was absolutely perfect. The house was immaculately clean, comfortable, and spacious. The grounds were manicured and there is a lovely wrap-around deck perfect for star gazing at night. Never Better is conveniently located with easy access to town, the beach, the brewery, and the bike path. There is a transit stop just a few minutes walk down the road...
The owner, Deb, was so accommodating and attentive to our needs. She recommended a great cab service that got us to and from the ferry, and helped with general info about the island so we could better plan our stay.
I really can't say anything even slightly negative about our trip and our stay at Never Better. Nantucket is a beautiful place, and we can't wait to go bACK. Deb's home will definitely be our first choice of places to stay during our next visit.

Our family had a wonderful time here in Nantucket. The house is located in a nice neighborhood, great for kids to ride their bikes and play in the yard. We brought 3 bikes but used 2 of the bikes in the basement as well. Its so nice that you don't have to bring everything- they even had a baby gate for us to use at top of stairs. We had nice meals cooked on grill and enjoyed relaxing on the private deck both morning and night. The home was very comfortable and clean, with everything you need (spices, lots of baking pans and utensils, etc). We thought it was a great location, central to shopping, beaches, bike path, Bartlett Farms and Cisco Brewery. Deb really cares about her beautiful home and that her guests have fun! We would defin stay here again:))

Nantucket is an Island 30 miles south of Hyannis,

Massachusetts. The Island is 20 miles long and has

many beautiful beaches. This charming Nantucket home is located mid-Island and is incredibly convenient to Town and also

to Miacomet and Surfside Beaches, as well as Jettie's and Children's Beach. 'Never Better' is the #1 BEST and MOST convenient location on the Island.

'Never Better' is located in Pine Valley, a beautiful, pristine neighborhood which abuts exquisite conservation property. The conservation property has a picturesque walking path which leads directly to Miacomet Beach. Pine Valley is centrally located and is on the NRTA Shuttle Bus Line which services most of the Island.
