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', which is now air conditioned, 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 Micomet Pond and Miacomet Beach. Never Better is 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!

**BTW, Miacomet Pond is perfect for toddler's to learn how to swim

since it is so shallow and warm.

There is a large Sub Zero Refrigerator in our basement

for additional refrigeration needs. Perfect to assist

with your entertaining needs and/or storing food and beverages.

**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 our 40 +RENTER 5 STAR 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!

Fantastic Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Never Better over Labor Day weekend as we were on the island for a family wedding. Since I started making reservations over a year and inquired into several properties, Deb was the best most responsive owner I dealt with. It was clear, before and during our stay that she wanted to make sure everything was perfect and it was. The house is awesome. There were 8 of us comfortably. We cooked a big family dinner one night where we hosted about 20 people. The kitchen, living room and dining area is perfect for entertaining. We rent a lot of properties and we cook and Never Better was by far the best stocked home we've rented. We used Diane's taxi to and from the wedding and she was awesome. The brewery at Bartlett farms and the beaches are not to be skipped. The deck goes around the entire property. An all around amazing experience. Thanks Deb for sharing your home.

Fantastic Women's Week

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful house for a week-long getaway. My girlfriends and I came to Nantucket for the Daffodil Festival and my 60th birthday. The house handled nine women easily, with plenty of room at the dining table and in the living room for relaxing after long days sightseeing and shopping. The kitchen was fully stocked with all the utensils, pot and pans, plates and glasses that you could possibly need. The property was clean and well maintained.

Deb is a great communicator and she helped with recommendations on what to do and where to go. She could not have been nicer. I feel like I have a new friend even though we have never truly met.

I would recommend this property to anyone who wants to visit Nantucket. It's not right in town, but within walking distance or a short taxi ride. There is a bus stop nearby when the busses are running during the season. We were too early.

Overall, we had a great time on Nantucket Island. The people were friendly, the service was top-notch and the Daffy Festival was great fun.

Thanks Deb for sharing you house and island with us all!!

Wonderful home for the perfect get-a-way weekend!!

  • 5 of 5

This house is a wonderful choice for your weekend or summer vacation. Deb is fantastic - truly excellent customer service and wonderful attention to detail. We had an amazing time on Nantucket - our first time to the island - and this place was great for a relaxing place to stay. The neighborhood is wonderful, and it is conveniently located near the many places to go to enjoy one's self while on vacation. From initial contact to checkout, Deb and the house were wonderful! I can't recommend "Never Better" more - it truly is never better when you rent from Deb! This house is a true "home away from home".

Great spot for 2 families

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with my famy and brother in laws family-4 adults and 5 kids. It was the perfect size for us. Enough indoor space for us to spread out and a huge deck and yard. This is a peaceful spot across from spectacular running trails that lead to gorgeous Miacomet beach. Also just 10 minute bike ride to town. The outdoor shower was fantastic-dry, clean, and great water pressure. The kitchen is well stocked. We had to get a little creative about storing our snacks/etc-but not a huge deal. All in all-had everything we could need and was an affordable way to enjoy a magical island.

Weekend at Never Better

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful time at "Never Better". From the beginning, Deb was an absolute joy to work with. She made everything so easy with reserving our weekend. I had never been to Nantucket before, and Deb gave me so many amazing reccomendations for our trip during Father's Day. When we arrived at Never Better, we couldn't believe our eyes! It is a beautifully decorated house that made us feel right at home. Deb made every effort to make our stay as perfect as she could.

While we enjoyed many different kinds of restaurants and beach days, the best part of the trip was staying at "Never Better". There were some nights we canceled dinner reservations just to enjoy our time on the amazing back deck. We can't wait to stay there 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 can best be described as 'quiet beach elegance'. It 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. In addition to being located near 4 different beaches it is only a small distance to the only large grocery store on Island, playgrounds, a fabulous public golf course-Miacomet, Cisco Winery & Brewery, restaurants, walking/biking paths, a premiere indoor ice skating rink which is open year round and a public tennis court. '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.
