The master bedroom is upstairs with king-sized bed and ensuite bath, the second bedroom hosts twin beds with ensuite bath, and the third bedroom is on the main floor with queen size bed and ensuite bathroom opening onto deck. Kitchen is fully equipped with dining for 6-8 people. Home is well stocked with linens and towels and is super-clean with cable TV and air-conditioning for humid nights! Outside you will find a lovely grass yard, stone patio and deck with table and chairs for outside dining, with pastoral views! Or, sit on the front covered porch in the glider and read-contemplate the lovely natural views on all sides! If you are staying in late June, you will get beautiful views of the wildflower meadow of coreopsis, daisy and lupine, just to name a few! Surfside Beach is a quick 10 minute walk, and is great for an early morning walk to the beach when it's quiet or all day for sun, fun, and surf! Shopping, nightlife and restaurants are a quick 10 minute ride away, you can bike, drive or ride the 'Wave' our own Nantucket shuttle bus.

About Galen Gardner

I lead the very active lifestyle of public school PE teacher/mom. I have many hobbies and interests including just about every type of exercise, reading, traveling, bird watching and all things nature. I love home-building, music, sports, cooking, gardening. I was born and raised here, and my parents operated a very successful summer rental cottage business here on island in the late 60's , 70's and 80's.

Galen Gardner purchased this house in 2004

Why Galen Gardner chose Nantucket

I always loved the Surfside area, the lovely beaches and it's also a local teacher neighborhood-many public school teachers living nearby. It's close to work for me, and yet close enough to the beach to get away for solitude and joy. I have built a number of houses on the island, and have lived in this one the longest.

What makes this house unique

If you are looking for a real quality home, peaceful and quiet, yet close to the beach, and you have a family, then this house is for you. It is very well appointed, my guests always remark on this. I will go the extra mile for you, to ensure that your rental experience is a good one!


Car: necessary

Surfside is a lovely south shore beach community on Nantucket. Surfside beach has it's own snack shack complete with facilities for changing, and beach chair/umbrella rentals, with lifeguard protected beaches. If you love the sound of surf, beach combing, beautiful sunrises and sunsets, surfboarding, boogie-boarding, body surfing, and good bike trails with your family, this is the home for your stay!

wonderful summer.

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed in this house for the month of July 2013. We could not have been any happier with the house and the owner. The property is well maintained both inside and out. The owner thought of every detail when it came to a renters need. House was beautiful inside and had a perfect layout for a family with children.Everything was clean and fresh. Plenty of clean sheets and towels. The owner couldn't have been more helpful and kind. This house really felt like home for the month that we were there. I would highly recommended this house and the owner.
