About Christine Vineis

For 30 years, we have been enjoying Nantucket. Our kids grew up fishing, clamming, scalloping here. we love the island in any season starting with Daffodil Weekend in late Spring when every nook and cranny is filled with the bright flowers to Christmas Stroll in early December. We love to share in the intensity of renters' fondness for this most special place and hope the house serves as a great jumping off spot for most special vacations.

Why Christine Vineis chose Nantucket Town

Centrally located, there are so many extras one would not expect from a summer rental. We know as we rented for years in a dark, moldy, one bathroom cottage with thin mattresses and linens that weren't changed in 15 years! The experience here with heated bathroom floors and top of the line appliances, bath fixtures and very pretty yard is one we hope just ameliorates our renters' experience on Nantucket. Our goal is a special home for your holiday!

Lovely and immaculate five star Nantucket rental

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at 8 Maclean Lane and we would return again and again! The house is immaculate - plenty spacious for our family of five to spread out and well appointed to make our stay easy and comfortable. House is airy and bright and with air conditioned bedrooms if needed for really hot summer nights. We like the central location with easy access to downtown, bike trails and beaches, especially Surfside. We loved biking to Sconset for breakfast at Claudettes , beautiful Surfside beach, sandwiches from Something Natural, checking out the late afternoon scene at Cisco Brewery and of course, sunsets on Madaket. Still many things left to do on our Nantucket list!!

Perfect rental home on Nantucket!

  • 5 of 5

Chris house was an excellent rental home for our family. I would highly recommend it on many levels. The house is incredibly clean and well maintained. The finished basement and garage were a real bonus for our kids and storage of our gear. The private garden was extremely enjoyable after a day at the beach.Chris was a delight to work with and always available when we had questions. We can't wait to rent it again next summer!

Easy Access to Town and Beaches

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time on Nantucket and are so grateful to Chris for renting her beautiful home to us. The location is perfect and the house has everything we needed for a comfortable and relaxing vacation. Our children (ages 13, 9, & 6) loved playing in the yard while my husband and I relaxed on the back deck. Beautiful!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your great review! That backyard with its wall of trees on 3 sides does provide great privacy as well as a long croquet or badminton court! It is so affirming to receive reviews like yours and the others listed here from discriminating renters who appreciate our hard work at ensuring the house is bright, clean, comfortable - all a vacation spot should be! Please come again.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with my wife and two kids, ages 12 and 10, for a wonderful week in August. Had stayed in Surfside before and knew that we wanted to be close to our favorite beach. Very lovely house tastefully appointed with ample sized bedrooms, modern kitchen and large living room. Furnished lower level basement as well. Deck with table and chairs in back all surrounded by well manicured landscape and enough room to play catch in backyard. Short bicycle ride to beach with rental shop (Easy Riders) close by and near other neighborhoods and downtown areas too. (Morning bike rides down well marked paths to Downeyflake Donuts and back became our routine!) Chris was extremely helpful with local knowledge in advance of our trip. Information about the property and handy tips to use while staying there was available to us too. We were so happy to stay at her home and already looking forward to next summer!
