Best Beachfront Rental on Nantucket

  • 5 of 5

We have rented Dreamhouse for the past 7 years and wouldn't stay anywhere else. It is the perfect beach rental. The house is so comfortable, the owner is very attentive and makes sure that the house is always perfect, and you simply cannot find a rental like this on Nantucket that is directly on its own vast private beach. It is a gem. The neighborhood is very quiet and peaceful. Constant breezes keep the bugs away. Mille's restaurant is short bike ride away for dinner or lunch. They also have a small general store if you need ice- they also get daily deliveries from the yummy bakery Petticoat Row! so you don't have to run into town for a chocolate croissant or morning bun! yum! Book your trip sooner than later so that you won't miss out. We consider ourselves to be extremely lucky to return to this special house each summer! see my reviews below for other specifics-

NANTUCKET FUN AT ITS BEST!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here with our family for a few years now . It is truly our favorite place . Ideal for kids and adults alike. You feel like you are on the edge of the world. The waves slowly put you to sleep at night. The owner is very easy to work with and she keeps this house very clean and up to date. She is extremely responsive and truly care about the people who stay in her family home. I would is agree with the only 3 star rating I viewed on here . this is a beach house not a mansion downtown so don't expect marble floors and 70 inch flat screen TV's , expect the best views you have ever seen and a beautiful private beach! this year she replaced the dishwasher and added a great DVD player for those rainy afternoons. this property has the charm of old Nantucket with more spectacular views thank you could imagine. we look forward to spending time here again next year.

Dream House is a Dream- Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting this house for many, many years. It is a charming, wonderfully appointed home. The house boats three bedrooms- the master bedroom has a fireplace and big comfortable bed & en-suite bathroom with a huge bath tub. The ocean breezes are a constant presence. The deck is wonderful for watching the best sunsets on the island. There is a nice outside shower. The most amazing thing about the house is that it is steps from a vast, gorgeous private beach. There are not many homes available to rent on Nantucket that are directly on the beach like Dream House. The waves can be rough at times so pack swim vets for younger children. You simply cannot beat the location. It is truly amazing. We return to Nantucket every year and would never rent another property.

Awesome setting house needs some repairs

  • 3 of 5

Pros: The setting of this home is as good as it gets! Some of the best views on the island! and you do have the beach to yourself.

Cons: water pipes in the lower level shower and kitchen sink need repair as they shake and squeal and water pressure is poor. The oven never gets hotter than 300 degrees( baking anything takes forever). The dishwasher though new never ran a complete cycle so we had to hand dishes for every meal. The refrigerator handles are all taped up- falling apart. Laundry takes 2 hrs to dry. The worst though is that you pay a ridiculous amount of money and then you don't find out until you get there that you are responsible for cleaning entire house- vacuuming and doing all laundry before you leave. Quite honestly then I am not sure what is the purpose of the cleaning people. With the right upgrades and repairs, this place indeed could be a dream house - however not for me on this trip.

Owner's Response: I understand your concerns. I take reviews very seriously. It is too bad you did not have a perfect experience. The problems you experienced seem to be with equipment and the changeover policy. The changeover policy is standard for all rentals on Cape Cod and the Islands. The cleaning crew inspects the house to make sure it is perfect and all equipment is in order for the next tenant. I do not have control over the water pressure. It is a general issue of the area. The manuals for the new appliances are left in the kitchen, easily found, in case the tenant needs help using the equipment. I sincerely hope you did enjoy the beautiful sunsets on the deck over the ocean and direct access to the beach. Nantucket is a special island.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

The vacation was a good as it gets.

The house is charming, with a very well-stocked open kitchen/dining room (plus couch) set-up that is a wonderful, sun-filled place to do everything and anything - cooking, eating, reading, hanging out. The master bedroom (it was just me and my wife) is charming.

The deck is spacious, facing the water, with plenty of chairs & chaises and tables. We spent a lot of time there.

Perhaps best of all (for us) - is the location. Very private, very quiet --- you feel like you are the only people around --- and twenty paces from the deck is your own private beach on Madaket. It was heavenly - swimming, gazing at the waves and reading, and watching the seals come by and do some people-watching of their own from the sea.

As I said --- the house and the location made it all---perfect.

Our favorite spot on Nantucket

  • 5 of 5

We consider ourselves truly lucky to be able to return to this lovely home year after year. It is a beautifully appointed home with stunning views of the ocean- a well-stocked kitchen, cozy outside shower, luxurious linens, 2 full baths, big comfy couches, nice TV, and a huge deck perfect for watching the spectacular sunsets. The house is also steps away from one of the best beaches on the island- a vast private beach with fun waves for swimming, body surfing, kayaking, and fishing. We even see surfers off the shore. If you are not familiar with the island, there aren't many rental homes directly on the water like this- it is a gem. It is also very near 300+ acre nature reserve with sandy trails perfect for mountain biking, running, bird watching and plein air painting. The owners are so accommodating and friendly and the house is always in perfect condition. We wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else on the island. You will love it and want to return year after year after year......
