About the property

On Brant Point's ONLY private lane. Gourmet kitchen. Water-view widows walk.

Perfect for a multi-generational family, two families with children or for five couples. Bedrooms on first and second floors. At the end of a private oyster-shell lane, this beach house has a wonderfully quiet location yet is close to town and beaches. New AC on first floor.

The widow's walk offers 180-degree views from Nantucket Harbor to the ocean. Tranquil and lovely. Adjacent to 2 acre Land Bank preserve.

The house faces south, so sunlight floods the living room, great room and kitchen. It has a light and airy feel. There's an outdoor shower, of course. Large deck and large Weber gas grill, too.

2016 house lift makes the most of views of conservation land, sweeping harbor and Sound views from widows walk. See the Boston Pops and July Fourth fireworks from a marvelous rooftop perspective. New marble bath with clawfoot tub, new floors, all new furniture and decor.

Children's Beach is a 1/4 mile away. Jetties Beach, with it's snack bar, changing rooms and bathrooms, is a half mile away. Many guests don't bring a car but walk or bike. There is two parking spots on the private lane.

We don't allow weddings or parties, apologies.

Great House

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 10 that stayed here for Memorial Day Weekend and it was perfect. The house is in great shape and is such a close walk to downtown and/or the beach. There really is no need to even bring a car as you won't even use it!

Also, the house comes with a great deck and backyard so were able to enjoy some of the nice weather for a little backyard cookout. I'd recommend this house highly to anyone looking to stay in Nantucket!

Super Friendly and Helpful - A pleasure!

  • 5 of 5

When looking for a house during Christmas stroll weekend we contacted many listings on HomeAway. The owner the most responsive out of any inquiry we sent out and quick to answer all of our questions. Before arrival she sent us a list of recommendations and reminding us to make dinner reservations before arrival on the island. I highly recommend booking this house for your Nantucket vacation and working with the owner!

Perfect ACK Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Southern Sass for a long weekend in September (22-26). The home was perfect for us. We had 7 adults, although it would easily accommodate 10. We loved the location...just a quick walk to town, Jetties Beach and The Galley. We rented bikes and never needed a car. The outdoor shower was amazing, and the large open living room, family room space with the kitchen island was just what we needed for our gathering! The owner is very attentive and mailed us a tip sheet with details on the house as well as local ideas for food etc. The kitchen was well equipped, although we ate out at night. We loved it and we will be back!

Family Reunion Week

  • 5 of 5

Great house in a perfect location in Brandt Point! Walk or bike to town where you'll find great shopping, restaurants (our favorite for dinner, Galley, Juice Bar (is worth the wait) and of course, Provisions, for awesome sandwiches). Owner decorated the house beautifully and our family loved the new outdoor shower. Rode our bikes to a different beach every day. Nantucket is magical and our family will be back! We would highly recommend this house and hope to stay here again.

Wonderful House and Amazing Location

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (two adults, two small kids) stayed in this great house with another family (also two adults and two small kids). We chose the location because of the proximity to the beach and to town, as we did not bring a car on the island. We absolutely loved the house and the location. The kitchen and BBQ were great for making meals at home, and the house was close to great restaurants when we wanted to go out. Jetties Beach is only a 10 minute walk, and downtown is also about a 10 minute walk (or less). We will definitely be back!

Great House!!

  • 5 of 5

A group of 6 of us rented this house for a long weekend early in the season. It is in a great location walking distance to the beach and town. The owner has done a great job with the house and it is very comfortable for a group of this size. I would highly recommend this house to anyone looking for luxury and location.
