About Christine E. Smith
What is it like to be in love with where you live? Let us count the ways . . . We have been Nantucket homeowners since 1993. Tired of the 'shuffle' back and forth, we sold our Seneca Castle, New York six bedroom farmhouse, moving here full-time from the Finger Lakes area in September 2007. It was hands down the best thing we ever did! We love Nantucket! Karl owns a property management company on island and Christine owns a private family psychotherapy practice, Nantucket Family Counseling. We love hosting families who come to visit the island and pride ourselves on going the extra mile to make sure their long-awaited vacation is everything they have dreamed of. From fishing advice to helping find babysitters, because we are on-island, we are here to help you. You will not find another rental home that offers the personalized 'B and B' touch quite like ours. We take your vacation seriously and love getting to know families that return year after year. We look forward to meeting you! Sunny Regards!
Christine E. Smith purchased this House in 1995
Why Christine E. Smith chose Tom Nevers
We chose to build in the Tom Nevers/South Shore area because we love the solitude and peace it offers. You can bike or walk to the beach easily. Years before, when we used to rent, we would stay in town. Although this offered convenience because we could walk to the downtown area, we craved sunlight and respite from the traffic and noise summer crowds bring. We can now spend a lovely day at the beach, surfing and whale watching, and continue to enjoy nature well after we return home, as we sit on our upstairs deck and enjoy a cocktail as the sun sets. What could be better than this?
What makes this House unique
The main living area is all windows, and there is nothing quite like that first peek out on Nantucket in the morning, while everyone still sleeps. Its like our piece of heaven, scenic and tranquil. And, of course, everyone's favorite is the hot tub and fire table! We live on the next property over, but will always respect your privacy. Having an owner close by allows you to enjoy some of Sea Castle's unique features, including a spotlessly clean and organized home, live indoor plants, fish tank. koi pond, hot tub, gift bag and homemade curated cheese and charcuterie platter with marinated olives, dips, dried fruit and nuts upon arrival. We LOVE to spoil our guests!
Please consider the following guidelines when booking this property:
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Charming 2-story Cape, close to quiet beach
This family of 5 loved the house right near the beautiful Polpis bike trail, Claudette's Sandwiches in Siasconset and the Nantucket Shipwreck & Lifesaving Museum. We could have been happy and comfortable if we never left the immediate area: (beach, food, entertainment) all are a stone's throw from the Sea Castle located on a quiet street. But the bustle of town was a short bike ride (or drive) away. Immaculate and welcoming we felt right at home. Christine is an amazingly attentive host as she makes sure every little detail is covered. Highly recommend for both families and singles.
Thank you so much for all of your kind words Mary. We loved having you as guests of Sea Castle!
Perfect Vacation Rental in Nantucket!!
We loved staying at Sea Castle!! The owners, Christine and Karl, were very welcoming and accommodating from the time we booked until the day we left. Without a doubt, this house exceeded our expectations! From the welcome basket of wine and cheese upon our arrival (and the birthday cake in the fridge,) to the perfect layout of the house and relaxing times in the hot tub, we couldn't have asked for more! We loved sitting out on the deck to eat , read and just relax. But the highlights for us were the hot tub and outdoor shower! We would definitely recommend this rental to others and plan to come back again!
Thank you so much for this great review Aimee and Barry! It was a pleasure meeting you and your lovely family! We sincerely hope to see you all again on your next visit to Nantucket!
Amazing place! Best we have ever stayed in!
This home is simply beautiful! Every detail is precise and well maintained; it wants for nothing! We have never stayed in a nicer more relaxing place! Our favorite was the hot tub and fire table! Its close to Sconset where we biked down for coffee and a newspaper every morning, as well as Tom Nevers Beach, another five minute bike ride. The owners are island people and even helped us get steamship tickets for our car. We will see you next summer, Christine and Karl!
Thank you so much Amy and Bob for the kind words! We sincerely try to make our vacation rental different from any other with personalized touches that say we care. So glad you enjoyed it! Enjoy the rest of your summer and see you guys next year!
Great House that Became our Home for the Stay
We have been visiting Nantucket for 10 years now and Sea Castle is one of the best houses we have rented. The house is immaculate and exactly what is represented. The owners are nearby and made sure that we had everything we needed during our stay. They understand that the little things count and there are many personal touches that mad the house a home for us. Our kids are a little older now so Tom Nevers beach is a great location to enjoy an almost exclusive beach.
Beautiful house. Great for families!
Sea Castle was a perfect rental for our family of four. Quiet location, nearby secluded beach and playground, a room fully stocked with toys and books for the little ones. Thanks again to Christine for being such a gracious hostess, for all the recommendations and providing treats on our arrival! We hope to return next summer!
Thank you so very much for the lovely comments! Please enjoy the rest of the summer and keep Sea Castle in mind for next year!
A Sea Castle Nantucket rental is a real treat! The owners did everything to make our visit enjoyable including the delivery of a tray of food and wine upon our arrival! They were nearby ready to assist with any problems which might develop, but never intrusive. Before our arrival, they sent a very large packet of Nantucket information which would be most helpful to people who were not familiar with the island. The home was immaculate and equipped with every convenience possible to make our stay a pleasant one. Our grandchildren visited for a few days, and they found every beach toy they could possibly want in a shed behind the house. And, the immaculately clean hot tub and fire pit were real pluses for them! The kitchen had lovely new appliances, and the washing machine was "state of the art"! We never ran out of hot water no matter how many showers were taken, and this is rare for a rental on Nantucket! There were TVs in each room and a huge library of most interesting books and games for those rainy days! Sea Castle is a winner!
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 crowds) as well as a brand new playground. Other beaches can be reached via the shuttle bus that stops just down the street. 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 theatre 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.
