About the property

Townhome, 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

What a great summer we're having on Nantucket! For the past 5 years our townhouse has been booked every week from Memorial Day weekend thru early October so don't delay in making your summer 2018 reservations. Keep in mind that June, September and October are great months to visit the island because it's still very warm, all of the restaurants are open, the crowds are smaller, and prices are lower.

My parents and I bought the townhouse in Spring '12 and my parents and friends have enjoyed staying there when it isn't rented. The pictures will show you how we've decorated with a new sofa, comfy upholstered chair, bed linens, dishes, artwork, and antiques, and a gas grill on the private patio. We have a great housekeeper, Clover, who makes sure it's immaculately clean for your arrival.

Our vacation retreat is located on the beautiful, exclusive island of Nantucket in the centrally located and super family friendly Naushop community. This two story townhouse has cathedral ceilings and a bright, cheery decor. The front patio is a nice private oasis with an outdoor dining table and chaise lounge- all beautifully secluded by a privet and hydrangeas, roses, and perennials. Upstairs is the living quarters with a kitchen that includes everything you'll need if you choose to cook and an extensive directory of the wonderful local restaurants for Nantucket dining at its finest. Steps away you'll enjoy meandering bike paths that will take you all throughout Naushop and beyond- Nantucket has some of the best bike paths on which you can ride all over the island- to the beaches, to the Old Historic District, and of course shopping! The NRTA bus stop is a just a short walk from the house the buses will drop you off all over the island as they run on continual loops. After a nice day at the beach or in town shopping or sight seeing, you'll love the amenities that Naushop offers. The heated pool, baby pool, tennis courts, shuffleboard courts, playground, clubhouse, and extensive walking paths throughout the clean and safe neighborhood provide hours of leisure activities. You will truly love this island retreat!

About Susan Renzulli

This picture is of my son and me at Oran Mor Bistro, (fabulous restaurant!!) Thanksgiving 2012. My family and I have been coming to Nantucket for years. I purchased a second home on the island several years ago, and in 2012 my parents and I decided to purchase this adorable townhouse so that they can enjoy the island several times throughout the year. We live in Florida and really love getting up to Nantucket during the different seasons. Easter and Thanksgivng are two times of the year that I love spending time up there- and of course, NOTHING beats Nantucket in the summer and September/October! It must be the most wonderful climate in the US during July, August, and September!

Susan Renzulli purchased this townhome in 2012

Why Susan Renzulli chose Nantucket

It is a unique piece of property very close to everything- beaches, town, Old Historic District, airport. It is also connected to the island's bike paths and the bus route- which will take you to all of the beaches, town, airport, shopping, etc., is just a minute walk away. Also, right across the street from Naushop is a little diner, convenience store, and package store you can easily walk to. Naushop is a very beautiful neighborhood that is kept in pristine condition.

What makes this townhome unique

Staying in this townhouse is so comfortable- it has large windows facing three different directions so the natural sunlight and cool island breezes are very appealing. We love the private patio; it's a great place to lounge, cookout, and dine. The tennis courts and swimming pools are a huge bonus- there is so much to do. And, the people in Naushop are so friendly! It's a very safe, family friendly community. If you don't bring your bikes you can easily rent them- the rental shops will even drop bikes off and pick them up for you!

Adorable unit with everything you need for your Nantucket vacation.

  • 5 of 5

Host Susan was incredibly responsive and accommodating. Perfect central location for a fun Nantucket vacation.

Our girls loved the boogie boards and the washer and dryer really came in handy.

Naushop kiddie pool was a hit too.

Thank you Susan. We highly recommend this host.

We had an amazing time on Nantucket. This condo was well appointed and very comfortable. Susan was great to work with--very responsive without being intrusive. The community was charming and made our stay that much better. Can't wait to return!

Perfect place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Just came back from a week here- we had a fantastic vacation. As opposed to other places we've stayed at on Nantucket (which we also liked), this felt much less sterile and more like a home. Susan thoughtfully provides everything you could need. The neighborhood was beautiful to stroll around and incredibly convenient. We loved being away from the crowds but a quick Wave ride away from anywhere we needed to go. We did & saw a lot during our stay but it was a luxury to just be able to spend a day here or there playing tennis and lounging at the pool. The garden patio is beautiful and we absolutely loved having dinner there most nights. We hope to book all future summer plans here- thank you Susan!

Perfect Memorial Day Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome stay at Susan's condo over Memorial Day weekend. The space was great and fit four people very comfortably. We spent a lot of our time enjoying the outdoor patio, it was very private and was the perfect place to hangout and grill. The listing description was spot on and the space actually ended up seeming larger than the pictures showed. I would definitely recommend this property to friends and relatives! Hopefully we will be back too!
