Beachfront home with direct access to private beach. Wrap-around deck with ocean-views and great sunsets. The first floor has a large eat-in kitchen with country-style dining table facing the ocean. It also has a breakfast bar for those quick meals. The living room has a fireplace in case you have a cool night, two sofas, TV, DVD, VCR, and a view of the ocean. There are two bedrooms downstairs with twin beds and a full bathroom. Upstairs there is a large master-bedroom also facing the ocean and a fireplace for those romantic evenings. There is another full bath off the master bedroom. For your convenience, there is a trash pick-up twice a week.
We have been renting this house for many, many years. It is a charming, wonderfully appointed home. The house boats three bedrooms- the master bedroom has a fireplace and big comfortable bed & en-suite bathroom with a huge bath tub. The ocean breezes are a constant presence. The deck is wonderful for watching the best sunsets on the island. There is a nice outside shower. The most amazing thing about the house is that it is steps from a vast, gorgeous private beach. There are not many homes available to rent on Nantucket that are directly on the beach like Dream House. The waves can be rough at times so pack swim vets for younger children. You simply cannot beat the location. It is truly amazing. We return to Nantucket every year and would never rent another property.
Pros: The setting of this home is as good as it gets! Some of the best views on the island! and you do have the beach to yourself.
Cons: water pipes in the lower level shower and kitchen sink need repair as they shake and squeal and water pressure is poor. The oven never gets hotter than 300 degrees( baking anything takes forever). The dishwasher though new never ran a complete cycle so we had to hand dishes for every meal. The refrigerator handles are all taped up- falling apart. Laundry takes 2 hrs to dry. The worst though is that you pay a ridiculous amount of money and then you don't find out until you get there that you are responsible for cleaning entire house- vacuuming and doing all laundry before you leave. Quite honestly then I am not sure what is the purpose of the cleaning people. With the right upgrades and repairs, this place indeed could be a dream house - however not for me on this trip.
The vacation was a good as it gets.
The house is charming, with a very well-stocked open kitchen/dining room (plus couch) set-up that is a wonderful, sun-filled place to do everything and anything - cooking, eating, reading, hanging out. The master bedroom (it was just me and my wife) is charming.
The deck is spacious, facing the water, with plenty of chairs & chaises and tables. We spent a lot of time there.
Perhaps best of all (for us) - is the location. Very private, very quiet --- you feel like you are the only people around --- and twenty paces from the deck is your own private beach on Madaket. It was heavenly - swimming, gazing at the waves and reading, and watching the seals come by and do some people-watching of their own from the sea.
As I said --- the house and the location made it all---perfect.

We consider ourselves truly lucky to be able to return to this lovely home year after year. It is a beautifully appointed home with stunning views of the ocean- a well-stocked kitchen, cozy outside shower, luxurious linens, 2 full baths, big comfy couches, nice TV, and a huge deck perfect for watching the spectacular sunsets. The house is also steps away from one of the best beaches on the island- a vast private beach with fun waves for swimming, body surfing, kayaking, and fishing. We even see surfers off the shore. If you are not familiar with the island, there aren't many rental homes directly on the water like this- it is a gem. It is also very near 300+ acre nature reserve with sandy trails perfect for mountain biking, running, bird watching and plein air painting. The owners are so accommodating and friendly and the house is always in perfect condition. We wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else on the island. You will love it and want to return year after year after year......
While this wasn't our first visit to Nantucket, it was our first stay. We rented Dream House for 2 weeks and could not have been happier with the property. The pictures don't do justice to what an amazing location this is - your own private beach just steps from the back deck. The sunsets were to die for, and the occasional seal sitings kept the kids entertained. Our favorite thing about the property was that after a busy afternoon of exploring the island, the private, quiet location on the beach in Madaket was a perfect place for our family to wind down and relax. Other than an internet connection (which the house didn't have, but our phones and iPads did fortunately), you have everything you could possibly need - from beach chairs/toys to grill/accessories to tv/cable to a fully stocked kitchen. The owners were gracious hosts, easy to deal with, and had everything prepared as we expected. We had no problems and a wonderful family vacation, and we'd welcome the chance to return here any time. Thanks for sharing your home with us! - RLHWA&A :)
Enjoy the beach. Bicycle the island on the many wonderful bike paths. Bird watching, fishing, hiking, wind-surfing, kayaking, tennis, golf. BBQ on the deck or enjoy the many first class restaurants.
