About Kent and Dianne Bein

We are a blended family with four children. She is a Hospice and Palliative Medicine Nurse Practitioner, former arts and travel writer; frequent user of vacation homes through this site; he is twenty-years government, managing Army, Navy, Air Force medical facilities from an office out of Northern Virginia. They have three rescue dogs (well behaved). They hope to one day retire on Nantucket (her Paradise). He thinks it's a great place, too. He coined it 'Love of My Life' , knowing full well her passion for Nantucket.

Kent and Dianne Bein purchased this cottage in 2002

Why Kent and Dianne Bein chose Cliff

This was her home for five years while living on Island year round. She just couldn't bear to sell it. He saw the competition was Nantucket. She married him. They kept the house. Smart man!

What makes this cottage unique

Upper deck expanded June 2014, lower deck expanded 2015 to provide the best place on Nantucket for soaking in the salt air. We have a great Weber on the deck for grilling fresh fish and veggies you'll want to pick up at Bartlett Farm or the fish market. The cottage is in a wonderful start point for walking, biking, and jogging, and a cozy nest among the Cliff's large multi-generational summer homes. Walk to the Sound beaches. Hear early morning fog horns from the nearby Sound when the fog rolls in. Beach chairs, beach towels for guest use. Deck space for perfect outdoor dining. Flowers and window boxes everywhere. A charming cottage with a lot to offer. Just describing it makes us miss it all the more!

Lovely Home with Lovely Owners

  • 5 of 5

I rented this home for a gals weekend in early June 2016 and we had a wonderful time!! The house is immaculate, well cared for and the owners Kent and Dianne couldn't be nicer or more responsive! We enjoyed cooking breakfast in the well-appointed kitchen and sitting on the deck in the evenings. The decor is very charming and almost anyone would be more than happy here. The 3 bathrooms and upside-down layout is also very convenient for a small group of friends, a family with kids or combination. The house is in a beautiful area just outside the bustle of Town, but a quick cab ride to all of the popular spots. A must stay on the Grey Lady, I hope to make this spot part of my annual trip for many years to come!

Very Comfortable Home with Awesome Owners!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I rented this home in 2013. The home had a great lay out and was comfortable for our family of 3. My teenage daughter especially LOVED the basement, because it was like her own private apartment. This home is in the Cliff Road section of town. It was walk-able to town, which my husband did on a daily basis. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you would need, including a NICE gas stove. Kent and Diane, the owners could have not been nicer. They were caring folks, who were very easy to deal with.
