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 Nantucket

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 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 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 in 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. 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 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.

Additional information about rental rates

Damage Deposit $1,000

Up to 6 hours of post-stay cleaning is included in the rental. After that there is a $50 / hour charge.
If you stay is longer than one week, mid-stay cleaning is required at your expense ($35/ hr.) - minimum of 3 hours. This is to keep sand to a minimum, perk up bathrooms and change linens. This is paid directly to the cleaning women by you. It is NOT TAKEN OUT OF THE SECURITY DEPOSIT.
To save on "end of stay" cleaning time (6 hours is allotted - anything one this is charge to renter), do whatever you can:
Start the laundry - do towels first as they take the longest to dry! Strip beds on morning of departure (and put in laundry room), empty trash cans and refrigerator of leftovers. Food is NEVER left for the next tenant.

In full on reserving. $1,000 security depose due. Personal or registered check.
