About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

Charming, rustic waterfront 2 bedroom + loft cottage in a quiet harbor neighborhood on a sandy beach in Nantucket.

This quintessential, rustic cottage with a fantastic beachfront and panoramic water views is a rare find in Nantucket. It accomodates 6 people, with off-street parking. The queen bedroom is to your left when you enter the cottage and a 2-twin bedroom is to your right. The short hallway opens up to an airy, pine-planked, cathedral ceiling living and dining area with panoramic water views.

There are hardwood floors throughout, with a tiled kitchen containing a full refridgerator, microwave, dishwasher and stove. A ladder in the hallway leads up to a separate loft bedroom with 2 twin beds suitable for children or adventuresome adults. The kitchen is adjacent to the dining area and the full bath is off of the kitchen and a hot outdoor shower. A pull out sofa bed in the living area is available for additional sleeping room.

There is a hot outdoor shower off of the wrap-around-deck. The deck faces the beautiful sunsets in the West. The property is adjacent to the neighborhood-shared beach access stairs that lead down to the sandy, shallow harbor beach. There are 4 beach chairs, beach towels, a cooler and a beach umbrella at your disposal. The gas BBQ, patio table and loungers allow you to enjoy your meals with direct views of the famous Nantucket harbor and sunsets. Your stay in this cottage will make for an unforgettable Nantucket experience.




From Main St. in Nantucket town, turn LEFT onto ORANGE ST. Follow the road approximately 1.0 mile. Enter the roundabout (you will see the Rotary restaurant on your right) and take the THIRD EXIT onto MILESTONE RD. Drive 0.3 miles then turn SLIGHT LEFT onto POLPIS RD. Drive 3.1 mi and turn LEFT onto QUAISE RD (this is 0.6 miles past the Life Saving Museum). Follow the road until it curves to the left. Quaissez Faire will be the 5th house on the right (37 Quaise Rd), on the water.

About The Owner

My husband and I purchased this property in 2007. Some of the locals say it's the best location on the island given our water and sunset views.

The Owner purchased this house in 2007

Why The Owner chose Nantucket

It's great for families, given the shallow, sandy beachfront, or great for couples seeking solitude outside of bussle of town.

What makes this house unique

This is one of the few beachfront properties on the island. It's five minutes from town if you want to enjoy all of Nantucket's activities and sights or far enough away if you would prefer to avoid the crowds.

Great Family Beach House

  • 5 of 5

A great beach house for a family vacation in Nantucket. We have a 2 1/2 year old son and we could not have picked a better rental for the week. From sleeping in the loft, chasing the rabbits and the deer, walks on the beach, kayaking from our doorstep, biking on the bike paths, and heading to the beaches, it has everything a small family will want. The house comes with everything you need from chairs, umbrella, boggie boards, etc.

The hidden surprise for us was discovering the junior ranger station at the salt marsh about a 15 minute walk on the beach from the house. For a small donation, the jr rangers spent the morning exploring (10am daily walks M-F) the salt marsh with my son catching fish/crabs and teaching my little city guy a lot about Nantucket's wildlife and plants.

Peaceful, relaxing, beautiful sunsets!

  • 5 of 5

This was the most relaxing vacation I've had in years! We have 8 year old twins and they had so much fun playing, swimming, watching bunnies and deer, and jumping on the bike path. The house is exactly as it looks on line. The owners are very responsive.

Family fun

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time at this cottage. Kathy was so easy to communicate with and quick to help us. The view is amazing from the deck and the beach is so peaceful. We enjoyed long walks on the beach at low tide. It was easy to drive to town and all of the beaches. We can't wait to stay here again. Thanks, Kathy!
