About Todd Becker

I've come to Nantucket for more than 40 summers, first as a teen and now with my own family. While we live in California, we treasure our summer vacations in this house. Even though it's on the opposite coast, the time spent traveling seems short when you are headed for this magical island. We leave the house full of family photos and my mother's oil paintings, and hope you'll feel at home when you stay here.

Todd Becker purchased this house in 1980

Why Todd Becker chose Dionis

I come from a family of architects. The whole family collaborated to designed and build this post-and-beam house in 1980. It combines a traditional New England salt box structure with a very open, contemporary living area framed by exposed rough hewn beams. And windows everywhere to take in the beauty of the western moors of Nantucket.

What makes this house unique

This vacation home has a wonderful open feeling ideal for gathering with family and friends and entertaining. It is privately located with panoramic views to the north and west, overlooking 50 unimpeded acres of open conservation land. The sunsets are incredible.

Charming house, beautiful views!

  • 3 of 5

Loved staying in this house for the amazing views, beautiful widows walk and charming post & beam construction! Having access to 6 bikes was also incredible & provided such a great way to travel around and see the island.

Nearby Dionis beach is beautiful & great for swimming - easy and quick bike ride to get there.

While the house provided an excellent stay, overall cleanliness was somewhat lacking & more attention could be paid to detail within the home. Great place to stay for a family or large group based on the abundance of beds.

The house was equipped with an abundance of beach towels, kitchen utensils, and games for enjoyment. That said, there was a lack of paper products (toilet paper, paper towels, etc.) at the beginning of the stay (one of each maximum). Just something to note for future guests.

Overall great spot on the island!

Living the Dionis Dream....

  • 4 of 5

Great house for large family. The first floor is perfect to cook, eat and play together. The deck is great for sitting in the sun or watching sunset. We loved the one mile walk to the beach as did the kids who biked, walked or ran as well. Eel Point area is great for running. Easy drive to town, Cisco Brewery, Millie's. Todd (Owner), always accommodating if there are any issues!

Great relaxed place to vacation on Nantucket, nice and private yet only 10 minutes into town

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time at the house. It has a laid back open design and a very private yard which made it easy for us to have a relaxing time. We have 4 kids ranging from 15- 22 who came and went on different days throughout the week with different friends. They all had their own unique fun experiences. Easy ride into town for groceries, fabulous restaurants and bars, superb shopping, and local beach less than a mile away. The house was clean, well stocked with supplies, towels and sheets which was an added bonus. Overall a fantastic vacation.

A wedding long weekend!!!

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful time had by all! The house was perfect for our family. Two daughters, their husbands, my aunt and myself. The kitchen is well laid out for a large group and the dining area and living room worked well for us. I love the post and beam. The house listing as to location was right on as were the photographs. The house was clean, the beds made, towels laid out and all kitchen amenities were clean and scrubbed. It got quite chilly the last 2 days I was there and the lack of heat was a bit off-putting. I had not known that we were not supposed to use the woodstove--although I understand the owners' concerns. The bathrooms were heated which was delightful. I would definitely recommend this property to a friend or relative. Millie's restaurant in Madaket is great and not too far away. I loved the fact that the house is located away from the town and on t he moors.
