This wonderful private property is set on two acres just minutes from two of Nantucket’s loveliest beaches. This architecturally designed home has been completely renovated and is light, airy and thoughtfully decorated. The first thing that hits you when you enter the space is the gorgeous light. The large spacious living room has wonderful high ceilings, warm bleached oak flooring and a beautiful over-sized window that draws your eye out over the lovely entertaining area and large green space outside. Enjoy your morning caffe in the warmth of the sun in the butterfly chairs by the large window or kick back in the sofa at night and enjoy a movie on the large flat screen tv. The dining area is graced by a stunning, commissioned one of a kind dining table made of bleached antique oak. What could be better after a day at the beach than picking up fresh fish, grilling on the new Weber outside and enjoying a delicious dinner with your friends or family around this table! This open plan living space flows onto an over-sized outdoor deck where you can sun on the loungers, enjoy an apertivo or dine alfresco in the evening!
Enjoy cooking in the lovely open concept kitchen with walk in pantry, custom cabinets, granite and stone countertops and new high end stainless appliances including an Italian Bertazzoni gas range, microwave, Miele dishwasher and Viking fridge with filtered water.
The gorgeous master bedroom suite exudes a feeling of relaxation with it's high ceilings, organic lighting, layers of white linen, a hanging chair to sneak some time on your own with your favorite book and a modern king size four poster bed that awaits you every evening. There is ample closet space and your own access to the outdoor deck.
Start your Nantucket morning in the stunning, modern, glass tiled walk in shower, walk across the glossy white tiles underfoot that you can warm with the underfloor heating or keep cool to the touch ... your choice. The beautiful double vessel sinks ensure no one is having to wait their turn.
The serene second bedroom gives you the feeling that you woke up in a cloud as you are encased in a sea of white with fresh white painted floors holding your queen size bed layered with beautiful earthy pink linens.
The third bedroom is also host to a delightfully layered queen bed, this time in tones of fog grey and white. The organic undertone of the house continues here with the natural texture of the bedside lights juxtaposed against the modern lines of the furniture. Above this room you'll find a delightful glass encased sleeping loft with two twins ... this is the perfect spot to take an afternoon nap! This bedroom also has it’s own private deck. These two queen bedrooms share a bright full bathroom with a modern wall hung vanity with vessel sink and a lovely glass encased tile shower. In addition to this bathroom, there is also a half bath.
There is a separate laundry for your convenience with a large sink and high efficiency washer and dryer. There is a huge yard, an outdoor shower, a new Weber BBQ and plenty of parking. All the beautiful fresh new linens are included in the rental, as is a four hour clean at the end of your stay. We also provide cable, a dvd player, bose ipod player, phone, wireless internet, beach chairs, beach towels, beach umbrella and a cooler.
The popular Surfside Beach with all the amenities is 1 1/2 miles away on the bikepath. For a change of pace, Miacomet Beach (which also has lifeguards and bathrooms and is a favorite of ours) seems like the best kept secret, and is just a short bike ride away at the end of the street.
This location is so convenient to town but still gives you the feeling that you are in the country as it is nestled in two acres with no apparent neighbors. There is easy access to the Nantucket shuttle bus service and bike paths.

After living on Nantucket for 15 years, Scott and I purchased this gem of a property in 2010 and began a full renovation on the property. My love of design gave me the lead on the renovation and I enjoyed the entire process from beginning to end, working closely with all the wonderful tradespeople to perfect every detail. Although I am constantly adding and changing things within the space, the bulk of the work was carried out that year and we initiated the beginning of what would be a very successful rental business the following year. I am a perfectionist and I take pride in addressing every detail of the rental. I believe it is always the small things that make the end result! Scott and I are both originally from New Zealand and although we began our journeys separately to Nantucket, we were both thinking we were just coming for the summer ... 21 years later, this is now where we call home. We hope that we can share some 'down under' hospitality with you and you will create some of your own wonderful memories within the walls of this beautiful home and this magical little island!
Amanda purchased this House in 2010
Why Amanda chose Nantucket Island
Before we even laid eyes on this property, we both knew from the pictures online that it was the one. It just has amazing architectural bones! We both love a totally light filled space and this house is just that. The high ceilings are fabulous and the entire house just had that x factor quality you always look for in a house. The property was so private and being from New Zealand we loved the idea of being surrounded by plenty of green space with not really a neighbor in sight! Feeling like you are in the country but being in reality, about a six minute drive from downtown Nantucket was a real bonus! We have made the beach at the end of the street our preferred choice as we think it is one of the best kept secrets on the island ... it is never overcrowded and is just stunning! One stay in the house and you will understand how we fell in love with this great spot!
What makes this House unique
So incredibly private, beautiful down to the tiniest detail, an incredibly large yard for friends and family to kick a ball and just hang out and enjoy and convenient to everything
Sports & Adventure Activities
Both Beautiful and Comfortable
Rarely do you find the perfect combination of exquisite furnishings and total comfort all in one place. Amanda has thought about every detail and it shows throughout the home. She was eager to help with island information, restaurant tips and anything extra to make our stay more enjoyable. And the home's location is equally spectacular -- close to town but the large yard is totally private and secluded. If you're lucky enough to spend your vacation there, you will not be disappointed.
Robbie, thank you so much for taking the time to write such a wonderful review! I'm thrilled to hear that not only did you love the decor and detail, but you also felt totally relaxed and comfortable! It was a pleasure to have you and your family stay and hopefully we will see you again in the near future! Enjoy the rest of your summer!
The Perfect Vacation!
We were lucky enough to rent Amanda and Scott's beautiful home for the week of 6/252017. Our family (all young adults) were greeted with a bottle of champagne as we entered their house. The inside is more beautiful then the pictures shown on the website. It is bright and comfortable with beautiful flowers throughout. The outside deck is expansive and private...a perfect setting for dinner after the beach or coffee and a book in the morning. They have thought of every amenity from providing beach chairs, beach towels and umbrella to a choice between a french press and drip pot of coffee! The kitchen and family room are all one large space and perfect for family card games. The Scotts were available at a moments notice to answer any questions or concerns as they want to be sure that your vacation in their home is a memorable one. The property is down the street from the beach and is a short bike ride to town..the perfect setting. The only negative is that we couldn't stay longer!
Looking forward to next year at the Scott's!
Sheila, we are so glad that you all had such a wonderful relaxing vacation and thank you so much for your lovely feedback! It was a pleasure to meet you all and we will look forward to welcoming you back next year ... hopefully for a longer stay!!
My dream vacation with the most spectacular hosts!
I have had the good fortune to rent from Amanda and Scott both last year and this year. The house is spectacular! It is decorated beautifully and the finishes are of the highest quality. It's honestly my dream home and I never want to leave.
The location is spectacular. It is extremely close to the beach at the end of the road and a short drive into town. I often even walk into town for dinner (about 30 mins) and take a quick taxi back. Nantucket is wonderful place and this home is situated perfectly to take advantage of it.
Amanda and Scott leave nothing unattended. Everything is sparkling clean and your needs are anticipated. For example, I was doing a load of laundry and pulled the dryer sheet out and thought where am I going to put this? I looked down and there was a small trash can just for that purpose. Sounds small, but tells you the level of detail they think of. In addition, they are extremely kind. Just one example: Scott helped me with the laborious process of taking down the soft top on my rental Jeep. We have shared laughs over wine and dinner and they are the most gracious people and super fun to be with. It feels like home but they also provide as much privacy as you want.
To sum it up: It's perfect. You should go. It will be the best rental experience you ever have and a dream vacation. I will be back as often as I can!
A happy place
We first rented this lovely home in 2012 and were devastated to only be able to rent for one week this year (it was booked the other week!!!). The home is bright and airy, the furnishings absolutely beautiful (and minimal which we love), and the location ideal. My three children and I rode bikes into town every day to visit the Bean or grab a treat at Force 5 and down to the end of our road to hit the beach. The landscaping is also impeccable and the owners have anticipated every need (from beach towels and chairs to local recommendations). We hope to return again in 2016 for two more weeks!!
Sorry we couldn't get you in for two weeks this year Christy!! It was lovely to see you all again! We're so glad you had a wonderful time and I loved to hear that you all rode your bikes into town daily!! It really is the perfect location ... close to everything but still so private with loads of room for the kids to play outside!! We hope to see you back in 2016!
Repeat Visit in 2014 even better than 2011!
I wrote the first review for this property (below) and in 2014 I can say it was even better! The house has been meticulously maintained and we really enjoyed the visit. The owners replace towels, dishes, etc so they stay fresh. The owners are a lovely couple who go out of their way to ensure you have everything you need. Before we arrived I asked if there were champagne glasses in the house, and though there were not, she brought some over on a tray, bag of ice, ice bucket and a lovely bottle of champagne! The open space is great for morning coffee or cocktails before dinner. Would recommend and would return. :)
Thank you for your kind words! It is always lovely to welcome back families that have stayed before! We have a large number of return guests every year which we really enjoy as it is like welcoming back friends! I'm so glad you all enjoyed the house even more this time!! As you know, I am a firm believer that it is "all in the details" so I like to ensure all the little things are kept up with, so even if you return year after year, there is always something new to enjoy! Thanks for coming back!! We hope to see you all again soon!!
PS ... Glad you enjoyed the bubbles and your anniversary!
A Nantucket Gem!!
This house came highly recommended and it did not disappoint. It is bright, clean, and decorated with such a fine eye for detail. It’s like something out of Architectual Digest! My family had tons of room to spread out both inside this BEAUTIFUL house and outside in it’s large, very private yard. It is close to a pristine beach, and a short walk to great bike rental shop.
Amanda and Scott were perfect hosts, attending to our every need! We look forward to returning here soon. Nantucket is a perfect vacation spot and this house is the epitome of all that Nantucket is!
Oh my goodness, thank you so much for the wonderful feedback!! Scott and I really appreciate you taking the time to write such a lovely review! We're really thrilled you all had a wonderful time and enjoyed the house and property! We love to share our home with like minded people who appreciate all the details! Your family were a pleasure and we certainly hope to welcome you back in the near future!! Thank you again for your kind words!
Our best for the year ahead,
Amanda & Scott
