We returned to Nantucket to celebrate our 20th Wedding anniversary w/family. Having stayed on island for many years we were very happy with the central location--both close to downtown and beaches, as well as restaurants and the bike path. Yet it is a very quiet location, near the State Forest with many walking, and biking trails. The house was lovely--very spacious and well decorated. Pictures are very accurate. We will definitely to returning--sooner than later.

Incredible house the best deal on the island!
Incredible house the best deal on the island!
We've been going to Nantucket for 20 years and have stayed at this home the past 5 summers. We were thrilled when we found this home and have been back every year since, including Christmas. The house is amazing and perfect for a family or large group. A great location, close to town and the beach, yet you still have privacy. The state forest is basically in your back yard for wonderful walks and shortcut to the beach. When we stay here we feel like we're at home vs a rental. It has that cozy feel with plenty of space. The master bedroom and bath are incredible. The huge tile master shower has 2 shower heads and a luxury sunken tub. Master bedroom has a french door to the deck and beautiful grounds where we enjoy our morning cup of coffee. Four big bedrooms that sleep 10. My favorite room is the family room with a huge stone fireplace, open to the kitchen, dining room, and large wrap around deck. It is the heart of the house. The kitchen has everything you need and I love the new fun beach look. There is also a living room for those that want to curl up with a book or separate place for the kids to hang out and watch their shows. This is the best deal on the island, a real hidden treasure. We love staying here and are happy to recommend this property.

Beautiful home with great spaces
Beautiful home with great spaces
We stayed at this home at the end of the 2011 summer for two great weeks. The home is beautifully laid out with a spacious great room, kitchen island and dining area large enough to seat many guests staying in the 4 big bedrooms. We had great times on the porches wrapping around the house with guests after a day at the beach. The large back yard was perfect for entertaining. Very convenient location close to town and beachs, and the house has all of the amenities you could need. We are dying to go back to this great house.

About the owner: We are a family of 6 (with lots of relatives) and enjoy the layout of this house as it has 2 family rooms , a big kitchen, wrap around porch, and lots of outdoor space for family fun. Walk, bike or ride to the south shore beaches 15 minutes away.
Why the Owner Chose Surfside:
This location is mid-island. Very convenient, yet private setting out-of town, away from crowds and traffic, yet easy access. We love the waves on the south shore beaches a mile away.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Hear the faint harbor fog horn from the house on a foggy night, State forest protects from noise or island activity, convenient to town and bike path or back dirt roads lead to the beach. Safe for kids to play outside in big yard protected by a wrap around hedge on a quiet dirt road. Organic market 2 blocks away and fresh fish market is walking distance too, Nantucket Bake Shop walking distance, Island Bike Rental walking distance.
