New kitchen (SubZero refrigerator, induction cooktop, Miele dishwasher, convection oven), stone countertops, new floors throughout downstairs, new marble Master bath with with an open glass, walk-in shower. AC throughout.

New mahogany deck. Covered by a bead-board cathedral ceiling with a clay-beaded chandelier and a cushioned porch swing allowing you to enjoy being outside no matter what the weather. Dining table on porch with 4 chairs.

This is a FRIDAY TO FRIDAY RENTAL (Fridays are easier to get boat reservations). Private home, not just a rental house.

Many extra amenities provided by the owner as it is a year-round home. Decor is "shabby-chic" in white and turquoise/seafoam green. Bright and sunny, mix of modern and casual furniture, accented with chandeliers and mirrors. Living room couch and chairs are slip-covered with washable fabric. Child friendly.

Bedroom floor and stairs to second floor painted in a white, high-gloss marine paint.

Located on a private lane, covered with shells where 8 summer homes are located. Traffic is minimal and a safe place for children rather than traffic on in-Town streets. Just a 5 minute walk to downtown. Historic, walk to Town past whaling captain's houses to downtown shops or restaurants. Guests and teens feel independent to walk or bike from this location). Also, an easy walk with a baby carriage or for elderly family mambers. Many beaches nearby via easily accessible bike paths to Surfside or Cisco beaches. Four beach chairs are provided along with a beach umbrella and beach towels for the entire family.

Well-maintained yard with perennial flower gardens . Entire yard is surrounded by 6 foot high privet hedges for privacy with arched hedge on every entry. Outdoor shower to rinse off from the beach or enjoy in the morning listening to the the birds. Three pairs of cardinals and their summer offspring inhabit the property.

Small cottage on property (not available for rent) with their own private patio. Separate entrance away from main house. No access to main yard.

Small private, quiet, clerical basement office of owner on side of the house that is not seen or used by renters (hours are from 10am - 3pm - beach hours - Mon.-Thurs.), when renters are at the beach. In 10 years of rentals, it has never been an issue for tenants. Tenants are unaware of it's existence!

About Deborah M. Anderson

Owner has lived on the Island for over 30 years and understands how important coming to the Island to vacation is. The house provides a welcome feel and is clean and well appointed. It is not just a summer rental that is opened up and smells musty as some rental are.

Deborah M. Anderson purchased this house in 2004

Why Deborah M. Anderson chose Nantucket

This is not your typical summer rental. It is a year-round home that has all conveniences. The owner wants you to be confident that everything will be ready and waiting for your arrival. The house is located in a quiet neighborhood (off-the -beaten path) where there are just 8 homes (mainly summer residents). You feel as if you are out-of-Town, but are really in-Town. She chose this property for this reason. It has little traffic and one side of the house has clam shell-covered road. There are not many of them on Nantucket, so this is special. There always seems to be a nice breeze on the property, as it is slightly elevated.

What makes this house unique

The house is mainly decorated with a clean white background accented with the colors of the surrounding Nantucket waters (sea foam and turquoise). Collections of shells are found in containers throughout the house. The back deck is shaded by a pergola which is draped with wisteria vines. There is a white wicker table and chairs and a BBQ grill nearby. Dinners on the deck are wonderful. Table is covered by a large white umbrella.

Each room is decorated in a unique style with many pieces found at antiques fairs and pieces found in Paris. Attention to detail is a strength to assure that your stay is memorable.

A booklet will be in the house offering helpful suggestions and local magazines, which the owner publishes.

Nantucket vacation house rental

  • 5 of 5

The house is a large, traditional Nantucket house that is immaculate. It's a short walk to the center of the town, but located in a quiet area where there are no noises from traffic or noisy neighbors. The owner is very friendly, and was very helpful in providing us information about the island, things to do, places to go, etc. Overall, an excellent experience.
