Family memories are made here! Overlooking the romantic moors of the south shore of Nantucket Island, you can hear the waves crashing in the distance. Situated on a quiet beach road, just five miles from the bustling Nantucket town, we offer privacy and solace in an intimate seaside neighborhood. This house is not a generic rental home, and the owners are constantly remodeling and upgrading to give their guests the best vacation experience possible at this very special island retreat.
This 1900 square foot classic shingled beach house offers windows galore that make you feel as if you are outside all year long. Spotlessly clean and impeccably maintained, this lovely home features a classic island "upside down" design, a light and airy living area, hand-painted seascape murals, custom tile work, a tropical fish aquarium, freshly cut hydrangeas from the garden, country pine and leather furniture, antique artifacts, cathedral ceilings with beams, reclaimed oak flooring, upgraded stainless steel appliances in the kitchen with a huge island, two decks and a rich, soothing cranberry master bedroom suite with a huge king bed, full bath and its own private entrance.
There are three air-conditioned bedrooms on the ground floor featuring firm high quality mattresses, plus a full loft on the third floor (accessible by ship's ladder)offering a queen sleeper sofa. On the main floor, there is an additional leather queen sized sleeper sofa and another bathroom. Your home away from home!
We leave nothing to chance regarding comfort and convenience for our guests, with appointments in every room and special attention to details. We even offer our own private Nantucket nanny, for those evenings out in town! The HotSprings hot tub off the master bedroom deck bubbles under the starry Nantucket sky; rinse off in the adjacent enclosed outdoor shower, if desired, or move on to the stone patio with a firetable and Adirondack chairs.
Houseguests enjoy amenities including a welcome gift, a grand wine and cheese/tapas platter on the afternoon of arrival, linens, terrycloth robes, bath towels, beach towels, beach chairs, two beach umbrellas, rain umbrellas, coolers, boogie boards, pails, shovels, gas barbeque, Cuisinart, Super Nintendo, Playstation 2, Wii, four TV's (featuring Comcast digital service), a safe for your valuables, two irons, great toys, baby equipment (high chair, booster seat, a pack-n-play), even popsicles in the freezer await you! Books, current magazines, a huge video/DVD library (popcorn included), board and card games, and a large fully landscaped fenced-in yard to relax in.
Far enough from the crowds in Nantucket, yet closer to the supermarket and other services than most other outlying areas on the island. Bike paths will take you either to the picturesque village of Sconset or to the more than 80 miles of Nantucket beaches. The Tom Nevers area of the island features natural foliage, a surrounding ring of conservation land, expansive views and miles of secluded beaches. Upside down houses with sizable yards and spacious decks are scattered throughout this wide expanse, home to a mix of year-round and summer residents. Despite its density, Tom Nevers has a rural atmosphere. You might hear a rooster crow and many bird species enjoy this natural habitat. At the end of Tom Nevers Road, there is a playground on the former Navy base.Tom Nevers and its road along the bluff are close to the beautiful beach and approximately ten minutes from mid-island shopping. The higher elevation and gentle rises offer cooler breezes than the rest of the island.
Tom Nevers/Madequesham beaches are only 1.8 miles from home and offers some of the best surfing and fishing on the island, (without the summer crowds). Other popular beaches can be reached via the shuttle bus that stops just down the street at the intersection of Tom Nevers and Milestone Roads. We are one mile away from two of the best golf courses in the world. The town is an easy twenty minute bike ride or ten minute bus ride away.
Take your four-wheel drive out to secluded Great Point to fish and see the sunrise! Enjoy numerous shops and restaurants, museums, library, art galleries, live theater and entertainment. Try a historic stroll or even a ghost walk at night! At the wharves you can sign up for fishing trips or join available bus, taxi or walking tours of the island.
If you like quiet enjoyment of nature, relax on our upstairs deck overlooking the moors, grill out some fresh fish gazing at the ocean or try star-gazing from our telescope at night! Fogged in? Our house offers so many games and activities for your entire family to enjoy! Great for reunions, weddings or entertaining! Have an amazing vacation at Sea Castle.

Yes! We love kids! Little Tykes and Fisher-Price play equipment, toddler bikes, large toy box, play kitchen and tool bench in children's room. Lots of books and board games. Children must still be supervised, as the house caters to all generations, containing some breakable items and normal household hazards.

Last year, we added a playroom to the nautical bunkroom, creating a 'suite' effect....moreless

Pets Not Allowed:
Even though we adore all pets, we sadly will not allow vacationing pets inside the house or on the property itself. Animals taken out of their own home often tend to get stressed and can be destructive to property other than their own. They also shed, and its just too hard to clean up before our next guests in the allotted time! There are several excellent boarding facilities and private caretakers on-island, which we would be happy to help you find. It should be noted that during the off-season, our yellow lab Tobey lives in the house....moreless

About the owner: What is it like to be in love with where you live? Let us count the ways . . . We have been Nantucket homeowners since 1993. Tired of the 'shuffle' back and forth, we sold our Seneca Castle, New York six bedroom farmhouse, moving here full-time from the Finger Lakes area in September 2007. It was the best thing we ever did. We love Nantucket! Karl owns a property management company on island and Christine has a private family psychotherapy practice and does part-time consulting at Nantucket Cottage Hospital. We love hosting families who come to visit the island and pride ourselves on going the extra mile to make sure their long-awaited vacation is everything they have dreamed of. From fishing advice to helping find babysitters, because we are on-island, we are here to help you. You will not find another rental home that offers the personalized 'B and B' touch quite like ours. We take your vacation seriously and love getting to know families that return year after year. We look forward to meeting you! Sunny Regards
Why the Owner Chose Tom Nevers (Tom Nevers Pond):
We chose to build in the Tom Nevers/South Shore area because we love the solitude and peace it offers. You can bike or walk to the beach easily. Years before, when we used to rent, we would stay in town. Although this offered convenience because we could walk to the downtown area, we craved sunlight and respite from the traffic and noise summer crowds bring. We can now spend a lovely day at the beach, and continue to enjoy nature well after we return home, as we sit on our upstairs deck and enjoy a cocktail as the sun sets. What could be better than this?
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The main living area is all windows, and there is nothing quite like that first peek out on Nantucket in the morning, while everyone still sleeps. Its like our piece of heaven, scenic and tranquil. And, of course, everyone's favorite is the hot tub and firetable!
