About the Property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 11),outside shower

This unique, single-family beach house is located at the end of a dirt road and abuts the state forest. Bike path or backroads lead you to the surf beach (southside of island, near surfside beach) about one and a half miles away. Trails through the state forest are great for hiking and easy mountain biking. Awesome for children! Disc Golf in State Forest. Bring or rent bikes.

Relax on the wrap-around porch while others play on the grassy lawn. Private yard with hydranges. Landscaping of this house is spectacular. Gardens galore! This location allows easy access to the beach, town, and the airport (about ten minutes to all). Bakery, Restaurant, Organic food Market, fish market are all walking distance away (less 0.5 mile). Very convenient, yet completely private.

Inside living area remodeled with modern everything... Dishwasher, Drink refrigerator, pine floors, master bedroom opens out onto the wrap-around porch. Outside shower. Upstairs reading nook for quiet time. Warm, and peaceful getaway. Top floor has 2 bedrooms (2 twins and 2 queen beds) and two bedrooms on lower level (master king sized bed, with pullout couch in Master bedroom, and 2 twin beds in second bedroom ). Easy to keep clean for Mom's vacation too!


BOOKING: We do not use the VRBO online booking. If you wish to do this please let us know. There will be an additional fee on your rental charged by VRBO for online booking. Our reason for not using it is that we have been renting this house on VRBO for over 10 years and have never ever had a problem with overbooking, or security deposit return. We find the extra fee to you to be unnecessary.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: We are a family of 6 (with lots of relatives) and enjoy the layout of this house as it has 2 family rooms , a big kitchen, wrap around porch, and lots of outdoor space for family fun. Walk, bike or ride to the south shore beaches 15 minutes away.

Why the Owner Chose Nantucket, MA, USA:
This location is mid-island. Very convenient, yet private setting out-of town, away from crowds and traffic, yet easy access. We love the waves on the south shore beaches a mile away.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Hear the faint harbor fog horn from the house on a foggy night, State forest protects from noise or island activity, convenient to town and bike path or back dirt roads lead to the beach. Safe for kids to play outside in big yard protected by a wrap around hedge on a quiet dirt road. Organic market 2 blocks away and fresh fish market is walking distance too, Nantucket Bake Shop walking distance, Island Bike Rental walking distance.
