About the property

Beautiful And Romantic Vacation Getaway

The original building was a boathouse that was built in the 1860’s. With lots of love, the owners have renovated and decorated to transform it into a modern designer’s paradise.

This one bedroom second story wonderland has a loft with a queen size bed that overlooks an open floor kitchen and living room that surrounds a built in gas fireplace and flat screened TV. The master Bedroom has its own balcony. You won't be surprised to find yourself sitting in the den enjoying a book or quite possibly an afternoon snooze.

If all this is not enough, you can open the French doors and step out on to the deck to the real magic. During the day you can look down and enjoy the folks engaged in activities at the Easy Street Basin below and as evening starts to fall you will be mesmerized by one of the most romantic views of the Nantucket Harbor at night.

Let’s not forget the real reasons for coming to this beautiful island. You can take a stroll down the cobble stone streets that are lined with quaint little shops, art galleries and antique stores. Or perhaps you prefer a day at the beach, which is also a short walking distance away. Don’t forget to bring your camera so you can snap some photographic of the beautiful ocean landscapes, sunsets and historic light houses.

Once you have worked up an appetite, you will be ready for some major decision making! You will have to choose a place to dine from the many five star restaurants that make Nantucket famous.

To be fair, I must warn you this vacation might be the start of many more Nantucket vacations to come, because as wonderful as this haven is in the summer, it is just as intriguing in the off seasons! These islanders know how to make the most out of beauty and they have their own holiday traditions with themed events, such as stroll weekend and daffodil weekend. (info on line)

Be careful, rumor has it that there is a fever in the air. Nantucket is Contagious.

About The Owner

Thirty eight years ago the owners came to Nantucket and fell in love with the island. They purchased the boathouse in 1997 and renovated it for their own personal use and have since invested in another property in Brant Point where they vacation with their children and family. On their getaway weekends, they love spending time at this amazing gem on the water in the heart of Nantucket.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 97

The best of it all right at my fingertips!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful experience on Nantucket. This home is so quaint and lovely. It has a very comfortable bed and amazing views from the balcony! We enjoyed the watching the sunsets and the starlit sky at night! It is a nice walk into town and also to the beach. We plan to come back again next summer!

A little slice of Nantucket heaven!

  • 5 of 5

This adorable apartment is everything you want from Nantucket. Amazing view of the harbor, perfect location in town without being on top of the noise, charming and comfortable surroundings, and a place that feels like home, rather than a hotel. The owners have provided all the creature comforts with a great design aesthetic and well-appointed interior design. The photos don't do this charming place justice. It is quintessential Nantucket!

The rental process and gaining access to the house were seamless.

Highly recommend this lovely home for anyone who wishes to experience Nantucket like one of the locals.
