Come and enjoy a truely quintessential Nantucket vacation. 'Escape Hatch', our oceanfront 'cottage of yesteryear' has been a family treasure for 75 years. The southern exposure combined with the 180 degree unobstructed panoramic view of dunes & ocean is truely tonic for the year. Let the sounds of the surf wash your troubles away. Meticulously maintained but with modern conveniences, this 1920's 'Beach Cottage' will transport you back to old Nantucket.

Oceanfront enclosed sun porch with fabulous view. Working kitchen with ample counter space. Master bedroom with full bed, ocean view & private bath with shower over tub.

A red brick walkway leads from the street through a white picket fence with arbor to the irrigated lawn with assorted flower beds with lily of the valley, daffidils, blue hydrangeas, black eyed susans, scotch broom, and pink roses on trellis. The ocean side of the cottage has a ground level deck with teak table and chairs plus a red brick patio with BBQ and outside shower. Follow the private boardwalk path from the yard through the dunes to the beach 800' in front. No need to get in your car and drive to the beach! Lifeguards are only 500' up the beach. Seasonal shuttle bus and bike path to town are only a three minute walk away, with the heart of town only 2.5 miles away by; car, bus, taxi, bike or foot. ENJOY!!!

Oceanfront on Surfside Beach, a true beach cottage, quintessential Nantucket
average rating of 5.0 based on 1 reviews

This is our favorite rental!

  • 5 of 5

Our family has vacationed on Nantucket many times, and this year's rental is definitely our favorite.

We loved eating our meals on the large oceanfront deck, enjoying the ocean views, and having direct access to the beach from our own beach path.

The house has the charm of a Victorian cottage plus all of the modern conveniences and supplies that we needed for a great vacation.

The owner was was available and helpful when needed, and the cottage was clean and well cared-for.

Also, it is so close to the Surfside bike path and bus route that we won't bring our car next year.
