About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 bathroom newly renovated home, close to Town and beaches

'Le Petit Rien' ('A Little Nothing') is one of Nashaquisset's most charming three-bedroom cottages. Recently renovated, the house is fully air conditioned and decorated in happy colors of the sea, with furnishings that invite you to sit back and relax after a day at the beach, on the course, in the shops, or exploring the island's many beautiful trails (both by foot and by bike).

Located near Nashaquisset's pool and two Har-Tru tennis courts, Le Petit Rien features a modern kitchen furnished with everything to delight the most demanding chef, and the adjacent dining area is open and filled with light - all the better to enjoy your morning meal, mid-day lunch, evening dinner - or to work on that 5,000 piece jigsaw puzzle! Wireless internet throughout the house keeps you connected during your stay.

Outside, a beautifully manicured yard surrounds the brick patio, where a gas grill, dining table, and outdoor umbrella make al fresco dining 'de rigeur'. Rocking chairs on the front porch invite you to relax and reflect on island life: ahhhhhh - which beach will you enjoy tomorrow? Where shall you have dinner? What time does the sun set? Finally, step inside the outdoor hot shower and let the sun and sand slip away ... until tomorrow!

Le Petit Rien's layout includes:

1st Floor:

- Living room with comfortable sofas and overstuffed chairs

- Fireplace

- Flat screen television

- Dining area with farmer's table, six chairs, and two stools

- Kitchen with gas stove, dishwasher, refrigerator, disposal, microwave, other small kitchen appliances, washer & dryer.

- Bedroom with queen size bed, flat screen HD television and digital cable.

- Full bathroom with tub & shower.

2nd Floor:

- Bedroom with king size bed, flat screen HD television and digital cable.

- Full bathroom with tub/shower.

- Third bedroom with oversized bunk bed (full bed on bottom; traditional twin bed on top), flat screen HD television and digital cable.


- Private, fully landscaped brick patio with mature trees and other plants; dining area on main patio with gas grill.


- Front porch with rocking chairs

- Outdoor (hot) shower

Rental Details:

Nashaquisset features two Har-Tru tennis courts, as well as a swimming pool and sundeck; use of these amenities is included in the listed rent. Le Petit Rien will be professionally cleaned in advance of your check-in; if you are staying multiple weeks, a cleaning will take place each week of your visit; further details are provided in your lease. Check-in time is 4pm; check-out is 10am. (Sunday turnover.) No Pets. No Smoking.

Cancellation Policy: If you need to cancel reservation, all efforts will be made to re-rent the house. In that case, you will receive a full refund (less a $300 fee). If the house is not re-rented, then there is no refund. Please know, however, that this house fully rents each summer so it is extremely likely it will be re-rented. Please call Suzanne 617-680-1744 with any questions!

About Suzanne Del Rossi

Suzanne Del Rossi manages the rental of Le Petit Rien for the owners, who succumbed to Nantucket's charm and beauty the very first time they stepped off the ferry ten years ago. Their two sons were young; they were busy dentists; and Nantucket offered a respite that was just what the doctor ordered! Living on the South Shore of Boston, Nantucket gave them a quick, convenient break from their everyday commitments - within no time at all, they could shun dental scrubs and jump into bathing suits. Ahhhh ... life was good!

Suzanne Del Rossi purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Suzanne Del Rossi chose Nantucket Town

When 7 Autopscot ('Le Petit Rien') became available in 2013, the owners jumped at the chance to become a Nashaquisset homeowner. They had rented in Nashaquisset for a number of years and loved so much about it: its location (a short walk to Town, shopping, restaurants, the waterfront, beaches); amenities (pool and tennis courts); and upkeep (privet hedges, picket fences, abundant flora). They updated the cottage, including adding built-ins to the downstairs bedroom and the new third bedroom (formerly an open loft). They added furnishings to reflect their love of the island, and touches of whimsy throughout the house reflect their easy-going lifestyle. The house is furnished with rental guests in mind: they want you to be as happy in it as they are themselves.

What makes this cottage unique

'Le Petit Rien' is located on a shell path that leads to the neighborhood's pool and tennis courts. Its yards are welcoming, yet private. Multiple windows in the high living room ceiling fill the house with light, so even the occasional rainy day is not gloomy at all!

This is a beautiful, well-appointed property in a good location with a great pool.

  • 5 of 5

Home is charming inside and out, located in a great spot with access to Stop and Shop, town (bus stops nearby), and beaches. The pool and tennis courts were great. We enjoyed many meals outside on the patio and used the grille for several dinners.

Awesome home close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time renting a house on the island and we would rent this one again! It has everything including beach chairs and towels! Well appointed just as promised. Very clean and private. I would recommend this property to anyone. The manager Suzanne was great and always got back to me right away when I had questions or concerns. I loved that the Surfside bike path was right down the street!

Perfect for Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for one week in July at this wonderfully equipped home close to everything. This was our first trip to Nantucket and our house was the quintessential adorable Nantucket home with beautiful landscaping. The house was so well stocked and clean. Having the pool so close was a plus for early morning swims or late afternoon relaxation--our boys loved it. I loved coffee on the front porch in the cool mornings and runs to Surfside beach! The property manager was so attentive to our needs and responded quickly to answer any questions we had. We will never forget our family vacation in Nantucket and plan to be back next year! We would recommend this house to anyone!

Owner's Response: We are glad you and your family enjoyed staying at Le Petit Rien ... the proximity to the pool and tennis courts makes life easy, especially with younger children! Of course, "kids" of all ages can enjoy the house's amenities, location ... and the island's many wonderful beaches, restaurants, stores, and museums. We look forward to your joining us again next season!
