About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4). Minimum rental is one week.

The property sits on a quiet street just outside of Nantucket Town. It is perfect for 4 people - two couples or family with up to 2 children. Having been a 2nd home for years, it has been treated and cared for more as a home than a 'rental'. Morning coffee on the deck? A walk or bike ride into town for shopping or just exploring? Friends over for an afternoon barbecue? Everything is there to make your vacation easy.

Keywords: 2BR, 1BA. Quiet street. Walk to town and beaches. Great deck out back. Outdoor shower.

About Dave

I originally helped my mother build the house back in 1990 and bought it from her several years back. I love Nantucket and have been visiting the island since 1953 (yes, this is a long time ago...) when we would rent for a week each simmer at the west end of the island.

Dave purchased this house in 2002

What makes this house unique

We have a wonderful deck in the back of the house that I built with one of my sons. The garden that surrounds it is filled with herbs and flowers. I cannot think of anything more peaceful than a summer morning, book and coffee in hand, sitting on the deck and hearing the birds at the feeder. All this and a short walk to town and beach. It really does not get much better.

Lovely Home, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We were extremely comfortable in this adorable house. The kitchen is large and has all you need, new applicances and even a dishwasher and garbage disposal. The location is great because it's not far from town - 20 min. walk and not much traffic so it's quiet. If you have a car you can get to Madaket Road and into town, Cliffside, etc. all easily. The backyard has a nice deck and grill to relax. We'll be back.

Charming house!

  • 5 of 5

My Mom and fiance and I stayed here for a week in July and absolutely loved it. It was so peaceful and very quiet, a real escape. The house comfortably fits 4 and has a lovely back porch for grilling out or enjoying sunset cocktails. We'd rent it again in a second!

There are many things to do day and night on Nantucket. We have compiled a book on the many things you may want to consider including dining, beaches, nature hikes, biking, theater, arts, etc.
