Property description

Nantucket Style on Mission Beach

Our Home is a brand new quintessential beach house designed and detailed to match its sisters in Siasconsett on the north coast of Nantucket Island. From its elegant copper roof, eastern white cedar shingles, obligatory Dutch door or its warm Douglas fir floors, every room embodies the old style energy of what a beach house is all about.

A beach house is not a beach house without the beach, and this house delivers with 25 short steps to the sand and sit down water views from the first, second and third floors. This home has a strong water presence, improving after sunset as the night lights of Riviera Drive light up the waters of Sail Bay so you can enjoy the warm summer evenings on the third floor deck.

You will be coming in off the beach early to enjoy this classy old style home. The kitchen is one of the most beautiful kitchens we have seen. Yes, we know it’s ours, but just take a look at the pictures.

You will be coming in off the beach early to enjoy this classy old style home. The kitchen is one of the most beautiful kitchens we have seen. Yes, we know it’s ours, but just take a look at the pictures. We’re not sure if it’s the open beam ceiling, the warm colors, the lighting or the mix of materials, but it’s got a special energy that will keep you home for dinner instead of going out. It’s just too easy to open a bottle of wine and toss some fish or steaks on that huge Viking grill and relax and maybe pop in a movie on that 50” plasma screen. Don’t worry about leaving to find a movie; there are over 100 DVDs in the case under the home theater system. If some fun family time is desired, we have an outstanding collection of Board Games.

The house has two small cottage style bedrooms on the first floor, each has a Queen bed with a full bed on top (updated from the pictures). Each of the rooms sleep 4 comfortable for a total of 8. If you want the Full Beds can be raised to the ceiling and out of the way. Also a large office has 2 twin air matresses for your use, so really 3 bedrooms downstairs. Vintage Nantucket beach houses were well known for there funky little sleeping rooms and more extravagant quarters for the masters of the house. These rooms have an office area with a computer and printer for your use. The computer is hardwired to the internet with wireless broadcasting from the second floor. The first floor bath is beautifully appointed with hot water fed from a tank-less water heater. There is a two car side by side garage with laundry on the first level.

Off the front of the home is an outstanding large deck with a BBQ along with tables to sit up to 12 people. Great views of the Bay are available.

The second floor is home to the living room with fireplace, dining room, family/TV area, adjoining kitchen and a beautiful powder room finished in classic cottage style. The living room has large French doors on the second floor deck that open out, joining the living area to the covered balcony. There is no shortage of space or seating with plenty of room for everyone to find their own personal favorite place to sit and relax. Also included on the second floor is a Queen size air-dream pull out sofa. If you have never slepted on the air-dreams you are in for a treat and you just may be fighting to use the second floor pull out for your sleeping quarters.

The third floor houses the master suite with cathedral ceilings, huge dormer windows, desk area, beautiful window seat (sleeps one person if needed) and a great master bath with huge skylights to let the summer sun inside. A few steps from the master is a powder room that serves the master as well as guests on the large roof deck

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: Hi, I have spent 12 years of my professional career outside of the United States. Most recently 7 years in Europe. With all this time abroad, I have learned an appreciation for what is desired when traveling. I attempt to bring this through in my rental home.

Why the Owner Chose Mission Beach, San Diego, CA, USA:
After traveling the world I came to understand one thing, San Diego is one of the best places in the world to live and visit. This home is in one of the best locations you will ever find with both the bay and ocean available for your use. It did not seem fair to keep the home for my private use and not share it with others. This is the reason for providing the home as a vacation rental.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This is not only a rental, it is my pride and joy. We have so much more than any other property you will find and this is highlighted through the guest comments. We want nothing more than to ensure your experience in our home is one to remember. This is the only vacation home we have and when it is not rented out, it is used by myself and friends/family.
