You can also find us on Facebook at "Sea Castle; Nantucket Island Vacation Home". We would love to chat with you and help you plan your holiday! We believe that choosing a home for your special family memories should be a personal experience.
Overlooking the romantic moors of the south shore of Nantucket Island, ideally located between town and Sconset, you can hear the waves crashing in the distance. Situated on a quiet beach road, just five miles from the bustling Nantucket town, we offer privacy and solace in an intimate seaside neighborhood. Conveniently located minutes from one the most beautiful, pristine and secluded beaches on Nantucket. This house is not a generic rental home, and the owners are constantly remodeling and upgrading to give their guests the best vacation experience possible at this very special island retreat. We believe that hospitality and homes go hand in hand; when you stay at Sea Castle, no minor detail is overlooked.
This 2000 square foot classic shingled beach house offers windows galore that make you feel as if you are outside all year long. Spotlessly clean and impeccably maintained, this lovely home features a classic island "upside down" design, a light and airy living area, hand-painted seascape murals, custom tile work, a tropical fish aquarium, freshly cut hydrangeas from the garden, country pine and leather furniture, antique artifacts, cathedral ceilings with beams, fireplaces in the living room and master bedroom, reclaimed oak flooring, upgraded stainless steel appliances in the kitchen with a huge granite island, two south facing decks, a rich, soothing cranberry master bedroom with an oversized king bed and its own private entrance. There is a safe for your valuables, fun and current beach reads, two irons, great toys, baby equipment (high chair, booster seat, nursery monitor and a pack-n-play), even popsicles in the freezer await you!
There are three air-conditioned bedrooms on the ground floor featuring firm high quality mattresses, Somus Sleep supreme memory foam comfort pillows in both master and guest rooms, plus a full loft on the third floor (accessible by ship's ladder) offering a queen sleeper sofa. Your home away from home!
We leave nothing to chance regarding comfort and convenience for our guests, with appointments in every room and special attention to details. We even offer our own private Nantucket nanny, for those evenings out in town! The HotSprings hot tub off the master bedroom deck bubbles under the starry Nantucket sky; rinse off in the adjacent enclosed outdoor shower, if desired, or move on to the stone patio with a fire table and Adirondack chairs.
Houseguests enjoy amenities including a welcome gift, a grand wine and cheese/tapas platter on the afternoon of arrival, linens, terrycloth robes, bath towels, beach towels, beach chairs, two beach umbrellas, rain umbrellas, coolers, boogie boards, pails, shovels, gas barbeque, Cuisinart, Playstation 2, Wii, four TV's (featuring Comcast digital magazines, a huge video/DVD library), board and card games, and a large fully landscaped fenced-in yard with a fire table and hot tub to relax in. Children will be especially delighted with the magical fairy garden!
Far enough from the crowds in Nantucket, yet closer to the supermarket and other services than most other outlying areas on the island. Bike paths will take you either to the picturesque village of Sconset or to the more than 80 miles of Nantucket beaches. The Tom Nevers area of the island features natural foliage, a surrounding ring of conservation land, expansive views and miles of secluded beaches. Upside down houses with sizable yards and spacious decks are scattered throughout this wide expanse, home to a mix of year-round and summer residents. Despite its density, Tom Nevers has a rural atmosphere. You might hear a rooster crow and many bird species enjoy this natural habitat. Pick fresh blueberries that grow on the property. At the end of Tom Nevers Road, there is a playground on the former Navy base. Tom Nevers and its road along the bluff are close to the beautiful beach and approximately ten minutes from mid-island shopping. The higher elevation and gentle rises offer cooler breezes than the rest of the island.
Tom Nevers/Madequesham beaches are only 1.8 miles from home and offers some of the best surfing and fishing on the island, (without the summer crowds). Other popular beaches can be reached via the shuttle bus that stops just down the street at the intersection of Tom Nevers and Milestone Roads. We are one mile away from two of the best golf courses in the world. The town is an easy twenty minute bike ride or ten minute bus ride away.
Take your four-wheel drive out to secluded Great Point to fish and see the sunrise! Enjoy numerous shops and restaurants, museums, library, art galleries, live theater and entertainment. Try a historic stroll or even a ghost walk at night! At the wharves you can sign up for fishing trips or join available bus, taxi or walking tours of the island.
If you like quiet enjoyment of nature, relax on our upstairs deck overlooking the moors, grill out some fresh fish gazing at the ocean or try star-gazing from our telescope at night! Fogged in? Our house offers so many games and activities for your entire family to enjoy! Have an amazing vacation at Sea Castle.
Make sure to ask about our beautiful one bedroom oceanview cottage available weekends only (two or three nights) for that perfect romantic getaway!
