"Hornbeam" is a dreamy oceanfront house just steps away from a large, private beach. Located in quiet, secluded Wauwinet on Nantucket Island, it's the ideal vacation home for people who like to surf cast at sunset, cookout with friends on a large deck or fall asleep to the sound of waves lapping against the shore.
Owners use the house throughout the summer so it's perfectly maintained inside and out. Fully furnished with big comfy Pottery Barn couches and a bunk room for the kids, it's the perfect house for families. Beach chairs, linens and beach towels are also included with the house.
This is the place to be if you want the sound of the ocean, total privacy and incredible ocean views. Well outside Nantucket Town (8 miles), Wauwinet is an escape from the summer hustle and bustle. A hidden gem filled with charming beach houses that have been in families for generations.
Stock up on groceries before you get there because we guarantee you won't want to leave.

My family (grandson in surf) has be coming to Nantucket since the early 1900's. My grandparents purchased "Hornbeam" in 1958. I inherited it from my mother. My 4 siblings own houses in Wauwinet; a brother being next door. We, our 2 children and 3 grandchildren use the house in June and August.

I grew up in Wauwinet every summer. This house was my grandparents'.
privacy, warm days and cool nights, extensive beach access, surf fishing, access to shopping and entertainment but far enough away to not be overwhelmed by it.
