Nantucket House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

This gracious and comfortable vacation rental is tucked away in a bucolic setting of rolling moors, yet is only minutes from Nantucket town, just over a mile to Cisco Beach, one of the island's most popular beaches, and is in close proximity to hiking trails, ponds for kayaking, and bike paths.

Situated atop a grassy slope overlooking a duck pond, Slack Tide is the ideal retreat for families, or wedding parties. The well-landscaped grounds, with mature plantings and wraparound deck, open up the home to outdoor living, while the cook's kitchen makes whipping up a meal for a hungry family a pleasure. The open-plan kitchen and dining with adjacent formal living room, and den, are conducive to entertaining, yea also allow plenty of separate spaces for busy families with varied interests.

After a day of biking or beaching, settle into one of the comfortable chairs in front of the fireplace as you watch the deer meandering in the yard at sunset, or gather the family for a game of billiards or ping pong in the downstairs game room, or on the rolling lawn for a game of badminton, croquet or bocce ball.

First Floor: Open kitchen, dining, and formal living room with fireplace and wet bar. Sunken living room with window/bar open to kitchen. Barn doors open to the patio. Dining room opens to a large deck that overlooks the pond and bird life.

Second Floor: Master bedroom (queen), with private bath (Jacuzzi tub/shower),gas fireplace, California Closet, flat screen TV, and balcony.

2nd bedroom (queen/daybed)share hallway bathroom with shower.

3rd bedroom (twins)share hallway bathroom with shower.

Lower Level: Great family game room with billiard pool/ping pong table, large flat screen TV/surround sound. Bedroom (queen) with bathroom with shower.

Owners are very ''hands-on'' should any concerns need to be met.

A Great House for a Great Nantucket Family Vacation!

About Thea Kaizer

I am a Nantucket native and a second generation innkeeper. My husband of 41 years, Peter, is a charter fisherman, aboard the owner operated Althea K. We built Slack Tide 15 years ago, and have enjoyed many holidays and family memories there. To us Slack Tide is happiness.

Thea Kaizer purchased this house in 1999

Why Thea Kaizer chose Massachusetts

We chose this lot to build our home because we loved the secluded spot in the moors, and the duck pond. We also loved the close proximity to and Cisco beach, and town, and all the miles and miles of walking trails right outside our door.

What makes this house unique

Slack Tide is the perfect place for family gatherings. We have had weddings on the lawn, birthday celebrations, christenings, and many holiday family dinners. The open plan house is conducive to entertaining, yet still quiet and away from the hustle and bustle.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Many thanks for your warm hospitality once again. We so look forward to coming to Nantucket each year, and your home makes our stay perfect.

Awesome house, we loved it & we'll be back!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful house for a family to rent. This home is open and spacious, has a great kitchen. The deck is right off the kitchen, we could watch the kids in the yard while enjoying the view & cocktails. Love the location as well, the bike path is close by, we rode to the beach almost everyday. We're already booked for next year!

Perfect Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family rented for a week last fall. What a lovely setting, and comfortable for the family. They loved the game room, and croquet on the lawn, and all of the walking trails nearby. Had several family dinners: there are all the plates, serving dishes, and cooking utensils you could ever want or need, a cook's kitchen for sure. This will definitely be my family's Nantucket getaway!

great family house

  • 5 of 5

This house was set up perfectly and had everything we needed. It had a great location for us..access to bike trails, easy drive to beaches, bike or take shuttle to town, and it was on a quiet sandy road with a great view. With the number of bathrooms (3 1/2) for my family of eight...perfect. There was plenty of space to get together or find a quiet place to read. We will definitely rent this house again if we return to Nantucket.
