This home sleeps a total of 22 people so it's a great home for 4-5 families with children. If you have a group of all adults (no children), then it is most comfortable for no more than 18 adults. Or if you have a larger group, we have 4 houses, all right next door to each other! (See our listings for Over the Top, A Swedish Fish, and A Chesapeake Cottage).
Right ACROSS from the BEACH on Scenic 98, this incredibly nostalgic, Nantucket-style is home offers a beautiful, newly renovated kitchen, new carpet & furniture, plantation shutters, vaulted ceilings, and a completely remodeled 3rd floor with OCEAN VIEWS. Recent renovations have added modern conveniences for your comfort, while preserving the unique retro-charm of this large, New England-style beach home.
“Nantucket House” easily accommodates 14 adults and up to 9 children (in beds--not sofa sleepers!) with 6 BEDROOMS, including 4 KING Masters, a Triple Queen Bedroom (3 queen beds), and a 3rd floor Bunk Room with 2 sets full-over-full beds (yes, that’s 4 full-size beds). It also has 6 FULL BATHROOMS. And an added extra bonus for your large group, we have installed TWO sets of full-size washers & dryers.
There is also plenty of room for everyone to gather in the spacious living area and the open, custom kitchen and dining area has everything you’ll need to prepare and enjoy meals for your large group. You’ll love the beautiful screened-in private pool with plenty of outdoor deck space to enjoy relaxing mornings and evenings, semi-secluded with beautiful oleander trees. And when you’re ready for the beach – it’s just across the street!
We keep our home clean and well updated, and pay attention to amenities you expect, such as high-speed internet, nice flat-screen TVs, high-definition cable, high quality linens, hair dryers in each bathroom, and more. We also provide items our smaller guests may need like a high chair and pack-n-play.
Inside this exceptional home, you’ll find a bright and inviting living area with gleaming tile floors, a brick fireplace and beautiful tongue and groove wood details on the walls and ceilings. The leather sectional, chaise and side chair are all brand new, and you’ll appreciate the big HDTV with DVD player. Double French doors open onto a large deck with seating and a natural gas grill for great meals outdoors.
The wide open spaces continue in the beautiful updated kitchen, with new high-end stainless steel appliances, including an extra-large refrigerator with a French door freezer. It has 2 ice makers - really nice when you’re feeding a crowd! In this well-appointed kitchen, you’ll find all the dishes, pans and utensils you may need, a Keurig D-Cup coffee maker, as well as a regular drip coffee maker, and even a few spices, to get you started. There’s room for 12 at the custom banquette with new table and chairs, and more dining space and seating at the long kitchen counter. We want you to feel at home, and the large, open layout is a perfect gathering spot for your family or friends.
