Nantucket House Rental Photos and Description

Roomy, 1100 Sq Ft, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2-3

Take 10% off Special - 7 day stay Sunday July 24 - Saturday July 30......Naushop is a charming community of 200 single-family homes with quiet streets, brick sidewalks, white picket fences and classic Nantucket architecture. This house is one of only two duplexes that were built in the neighborhood and this listing is for the right half of the building shown with it’s own separate front entrance, off street parking, private front porch and rear deck and private fenced front and back yards. This property is comfortably designed for two adults; however additional arrangements could be made to accommodate a small child as well. Clean linens are provided. Passes are available for unlimited access (all week) to the neighborhood pool, clubhouse and tennis courts, which are two blocks away. The bike path and bus stop are also within a stones throw away from the property. The bathroom was updated in September of 2013 and brand new living room and dining room furniture were installed in 2014. Also, the house was repainted in 2015 and new curtains were added throughout the house. Please note: No recent testimonials are shown because I've stopped asking for them (most of my guests are repeat visitors).

About Bruce Fall

I am a Real Estate Broker in Northern Virginia within 20 minutes of the nations capital. I lived on Nantucket between 2006 - 2009 and now enjoy maintaining this duplex as a vacation rental. I make annual trips to Nantucket before and after the summer season to oversee a thorough cleaning, update where necessary and make sure the linens and appointments are in great shape and ready for my summer guests.

Bruce Fall purchased this house in 2006

Why Bruce Fall chose Nantucket

I bought this property because it enjoys the best of two worlds - 1) a premium island getaway that is approximately 40% in conservation and will stay that way forever and 2) a lovely classic New England style cluster of 200 single family homes providing a safe neighborhood, quiet streets and easy access to anywhere on this island.

What makes this house unique

The house is one of three duplexes in a neighborhood of big homes. Most of my neighbors don't even know my house is a two-sided duplex - because it looks like a single family house on the outside. My duplex has a fenced front and back yard and front porch that provides loads of privacy. The street /house sits at a high elevation and enjoys nice ocean air breezes.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Bruce,

I just wanted to send you a quick thank you to let you know how much we enjoyed our vacation! The house was perfect, it had everything we needed! We left a boogie board out back with the beach chairs, I figured you might be able to use it. I also left a movie with the DVD collection. I'm sorry that I wasn't able to finish the laundry, we really waited until the very last minute but it still wasn't done. I also left the lilies figuring it would be a nice way for the next couple to arrive.

Thanks again for all of your help and hospitality, we had a great time because of it.

Have a great summer,

Sandy & Rob

Everything Needed for Relaxing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time returning to this vacation rental that is perfect for a couple . Convenient location, responsive owner, totally equipped with luxury brands of everything needed, comfortable, and exactly as described in the writeup. Far more value than any hotel room on Nantucket. We hope to return for many years to come .

Peaceful, Lovely House

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Nantucket. The house is perfect for two people. The house was well-stocked, e.g., beach chairs, umbrellas, and comfortable. The Naushop community is beautifully well-kept, and has a pool and tennis courts. The location of the house is perfect, as the shuttle stop is right on the corner.

We would absolutely rent the house again.

Bruce was a great host and even drove us to the airport on our last day. The condo was perfect for us and the community is really nice. I liked how well situated the condo is to the bike paths, the airport, and the shuttle stop. The condo is well equipped and has everything you would need for your stay. I highly recommend it.

Thanks for a wonderful late summer stay. The condo was perfect for the two of us plus our 6 month old son. Great mid-island location. Very convenient to use the shuttle as well as a nice walk to town on the bike path. We would highly recommend this well-equipped and comfortable house to others and would certainly return ourselves. Hope to see you next year.

We had a delightful time in Nantucket. This condo was super. It was close enough to town to ride bikes easily and far enough to feel private and out of the way of lots of people. The bed was super comfortable with extra thick sheets! Amenities were fine - everything we needed. The owner is friendly and accomodating. I would stay again and recommend highly to anyone wanting an affordable, pretty and private place to stay on Nantucket.

Thanks for a wonderful stay on nantucket. We enjoyed your rental for its quiet privacy, the pool, and the back yard where we grilled our bluefish straight from the nantucket surf! It was great to have the bike path just steps from the house allowing a short ride to the supermarket, downtown, and the beaches. Many thanks, and hope to be back soon.

This Mid-Island location has a wonderful appeal to vacationers with the advantage of being a short drive or bike ride to Nantucket town, while being away from the hustle and bustle of in-town activity. Mid-Island is also the hub that connects you to all the island’s bike paths and bus lines. The NRTA bus shuttle can take you into town for shopping, an evening dinner out or to the many beautiful beaches. The shuttle runs regularly and the shuttle stop is less than one block away. Surfside beach is less than a mile away.

Other Activities: boating, shopping, kayaking
