Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, Sleeps 8 with 3 Queen Bedrooms and 2 Twins

This is a FRIDAY TO FRIDAY RENTAL (easier to get boat reservations). Private home, not just a rental house. NEWLY RENOVATED, beautiful bed linens (ironed for you - beds made for arrival). House is immaculate.

Located on a private lane, covered with shells. Just 8 summer homes in this quiet neighborhood. Traffic is minimal and a safe place for children rather than traffic on an in-Town street. A short 5 minute walk to historic

Main Street, past whaling captain's houses to quaint shops and 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, Cisco or Madaket beaches. Four beach chairs are provided along with a beach umbrella and beach towels for the entire family.

Entire yard is surrounded by 6 foot high privet hedges for privacy with arched hedges on every entry. Sweet perennial garden, edged with boxwood with bird bath amongst white impatients, cosmos, lilies and blue hydrangeas. Yard has a few chairs under an umbrella for easy reading or relaxing. 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.

New mahogany deck covered with a white 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. Wicker dining table on porch with 4 cushioned chairs. Gas grill.

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

NEW KITCHEN: SubZero refrigerator, induction glass cooktop stove, convection oven, Miele dishwasher, stone countertops

and new floors throughout downstairs. Eat-at counter with 4 high-top chairs.

DINING ROOM: Located just off of the kitchen with white table (with leaves to seat up to 10) and chairs. Silver chandelier with driftwood woven throughout its arms.

MASTER BATH AND BEDROOM: Located on the first floor with white, high gloss floor. New marble bathroom with an open glass, walk-in shower.

UPSTAIRS: Stairs to second floor are painted in a white, high-gloss marine paint. Beachy and beautiful. Three bedrooms (1 with 2 twin beds and two with queen beds). Twin has its own private bath and queen bedrooms share a bathroom.

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

Small private, quiet, clerical basement office of owner on side of the house that is not seen or used by renters (hours are Monday -Thursday, 10am - 3pm - beach hours), when renters are at the beach. In 15 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 40 years and understands how important coming to the Island to vacation is. It is not just a summer rental that is opened up and smells musty! This house provides a welcome feel and is immaculate and well appointed.

Deborah M. Anderson purchased this house in 2004

Why Deborah M. Anderson chose West of Town

This 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 herself for this same reason. It has little traffic and one side of the house has a white 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 on a hill.

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 throughout the house. The back deck is shaded by a roof and has a hanging porch swing for relaxing. There is a white wicker table and chairs and a BBQ grill nearby. Dinners on the deck are wonderful. Yard has Adirondack chairs and an umbrella for shade. Shade is also provided by the cherry tree in the perennial garden and privacy by 5 foot tall privet hedges surrounding the property.

Each room is decorated in a unique style with many pieces found at antiques fairs locally and 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's publishing company produces .

Car: not necessary

House is located on a quiet shell lane in-Town, just a 5 minute walk to historic cobblestoned Main Street. A car is not necessary to get to Town. You will want a bike or car to get to the beach. Convenient to restaurants and shops and easy for teen-agers to "be on their own!" One bike path from the house will take you to famous Surfside Beach where there is a large beach with some waves. I also has bathrooms, a shower and a snack bak. Another bike path, a short distance from the house, will get you to Cisco Beach (the surfers beach). A farmer's market, brewery/winery and fish market are found on the way to this beach. In the other direction, towards Town, you will find many beaches, shops, bike rentals, restaurants, theaters, art galleries, docks and boat lines. Always something to do and see!

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.
