Surfside house description

(**Please note that this property owner does NOT advertise on
Craig's List. Any listing on Craig's List referring to this property named 'Never Better' is not legitimate).

Charming Nantucket home, named 'Never Better', is located in mid-Island Nantucket in a beautiful, pristine neighborhood. 1.3 miles from Town and 2 miles from 4 very different, gorgeous Nantucket beaches. 'Never Better' is located across the street from exquisite conservation property which has a walking path that leads directly to the beach. This beach is only 1 mile away. Decorated with Nantucket colors, this lovely home is tastefully decorated to reflect the flavor of the Island. Landscaping design includes Island-famous hydrangeas, rosa rugosa and trellises with burgundy color roses. Spectacular 50' deck and outside shower also in back of the house. Spacious rooms, open floor plan conducive to entertaining. A sure recipe for a great vacation!

The Owner of this property also owns an advertising company, named Entree To Boston, that caters to the restaurant industry. If you need any restaurant recommendations, please do not hesitate to ask since the Owner, Deb, is well-versed on Nantucket restaurants!

This property is also located near Miacomet Pond! You can walk on an exquisite walking path through conservation property which leads you directly to Miacomet Pond and the beach!

**Please note that there is a large Sub-Zero Refrigerator in the basement for additional refrigeration space
for food and beverages. Great for entertaining needs!

**We have a 'shared condiment' option. In the large Sub-Zero Refrigerator in the basement, there are many condiments. Guests are welcome to share these condiments and are asked to replace any item that they
have used up. Guests are encouraged to leave any condiments left over from their vacation that they wish, and place them in this refrigerator. This is a very popular idea which has been greatly praised and appreciated by our guests because it saves a substantial amount of money from having to invest in each and every item individually.

From RENTER REVIEWS, the MOST POPULAR feature of our home is the 50' deck!

The bedrooms and bathroom upstairs have been newly painted with uplifting Nantucket colors and Nantucket historical colors. There is new tiling in the kitchen which resembles sand and adds yet another distinctive Nantucket accent, in addition to sand in the family room paint, otherwise known
as Ralph Lauren's 'River Rock' paint.

The 50' deck, which has also been called the 'Never Better landing strip' since it is so expansive, is the number 1
mentioned accolade from our renter reviews. It actually creates the equivalent of an extra 2 large rooms of space outside for guests to enjoy. With new wrought iron furniture and pots of beautiful flowers, there is plenty of 'eye candy' for our guests to enjoy. Watching the stars at night at 'Never Better' is almost as good as being at the Maria Mitchell Observatory on the Island. The stars absolutely sparkle and shine vividly from our location.

Owner provides top notch cable service and WIFI internet access

There is a beautiful public golf course, Miacomet Golf Course, located approximately 1 1/2 miles from 'Never
Better'. It has a great course and also, as a bonus, has a fabulous restaurant which is a bit of a 'hidden gem'.
Highly recommended by golfers and diners!

                              Nantucket is an Island 30 miles south of Hyannis,

                              Massachusetts. The Island is 20 miles long and has

                              many beautiful beaches. This charming Nantucket home can best be described as 'quiet beach elegance'. It is located mid-Island and is incredibly convenient to Town and also to Miacomet and Surfside Beaches, as well as Jettie's and Children's Beach. 'Never Better' is the #1 BEST and MOST convenient location on the Island. In addition to being located near 4 different beaches it is only a small distance to the only large grocery store on Island, playgrounds, a fabulous public golf course-Miacomet, Cisco Winery & Brewery, restaurants, walking/biking paths, a premiere indoor ice skating rink which is open year round and a public tennis court. 'Never Better' is located in Pine Valley, a beautiful, pristine neighborhood which abuts exquisite conservation property. The conservation property has a picturesque walking path which leads directly to Miacomet Beach. Pine Valley is centrally located and is on the NRTA Shuttle Bus Line which services most of the Island.
