Overview

Nantucket House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5)

Nantucket Island provides an historic and relaxing sea-side escape; our property is located in the Nashaquisset community with on-site rental and property management. Featured in the Design Issue of Nantucket Today, this adorable Nantucket country cottage is an ideal spot to enjoy an island vacation; a short walk from downtown and conveniently located to shopping, markets and beaches.

Our air conditioned home is named Tuitions End; we purchased the property after we had 'almost' finished with college payments. We thought this was a very special location for vacations with family and friends. It is beautifully decorated in a blue, yellow and white color palette, with comfortable furnishings and a place for everything. A galley kitchen that would delight the most demanding chef, includes culinary items required for fine cooking or entertaining. We installed an ultra quiet, high efficiency, whole house air conditioning system in 2011 to ensure August summer comfort for all guests, just in case it's needed.

A spacious side yard is ideal for playing croquet or other lawn games. It compliments the shaded patio that is a refreshing spot to dine or entertain outdoors any time of the day. Adjoining the main patio is is a second, large circular patio with deck chairs and umbrella, which is perfect for sunning or afternoon reading. For those who enjoy outdoor activities, it is just a few minutes walk to the pool and (2) Har-Tru tennis courts, in addition to bike paths and beaches.

The layout includes:

1st Floor:

- Living room with two comfortable sofas, love seat and fireplace

- Dining area with built-in banquette

About Ronald Lilly

We were drawn to Nantucket by it's history with the Sea. We had vacationed on Nantucket several times and then had an opportunity to buy our home in 1995, which we named Tuitions End. We have added many custom and personal touches which enhance the comfort of our guests, as well as high tech features, such as high speed wireless internet, computer and printer, stereo system with Sonos and IPhone connections, plus CD player and music library. Digital cable HD TV's, with attached Apple TV's, provide access to over 100 new and classic movies from each TV in the loft/media room and both bedrooms. We have kept the home unique with a beach side country decor, comfortable sofas and custom bookcases loaded with collections of Nantucket history, cook books, reference books, novels and European travel books. The spacious and private patio has both sunny and shady areas to accommodate reading, relaxing and entertaining. Tuitions End is a short walk to town, shopping, restaurants, the waterfront and beaches.

Why Ronald Lilly chose Nantucket

Tuitions End is a close walk to everything (downtown, food, shopping, beaches, bike paths), yet far enough away for privacy. The home is unique with it's comfortable furnishings, spacious private patios and side yard, rental owner management for responsive service and well maintained grounds. Extensive biking and hiking paths connect the island with our local access path less than 2 blocks away. The island WAVE bus network has a stop one block away and provides transportation to the popular beaches and downtown.

Terrific Nantucket home

  • 5 of 5

It was wonderful staying here. The home is very nicely decorated and extremely clean and charming. Indeed the photos do not do it justice. The owner was incredibly responsive over a very minor issue at the start of our stay. The neighborhood is also charming. It's conveniently located to shops yet a stone's throw from beaches. Access to the pool and tennis courts was an added bonus. We hope to return again!

What a wonderful house for our mother- daughters getaway! From the well- stocked kitchen to the bubbling outdoor fountain, Tuitions End provided us with all the amenities for a very relaxing week. We look forward to a return visit next year.

Perfect for our family of four

  • 4 of 5

Tuition's End was such a charming house and provided us with all of the comforts of home. It was within walking distance to town and a good central point to explore all sides of the island. Every amenity was provided and we were very comfortable. The pool and tennis courts were located right next door for easy access. Thanks for a memorable experience!
