Vacation Rentals

Updated on Dec 6, 2017


Located in: Siasconset
Three prime weeks still open. In September this house will be going on the market, making this possibly the last opportunity to rent.

Located in the enchanted hamlet of Sconset, this house has documented evidence to support its claim as the island's oldest house. In it's remarkable history, it has been a boarding house, a tavern, a general store, an official US Post Office, a brothel, a fishing shanty and of course a private home.

Located on the eastern-most part of the island, the town of Sconset is a spellbinding collection of unique and historically significant houses, originally built as a fishing outpost in the summer. It became celebrated during 1920s when the nation's most famous actors flocked to the Sconset Casino to apply their skills when the theaters in New York City started to struggle. Some even suggest it was the country's first "summer resort". Today, it is a dreamlike hamlet of serenely beautiful rose-covered cottages and narrow roads. To stay in Sconset is to experience the real Nantucket of old, in all it's glory.

My family purchased the property in 1964, but have only been renting it for a few seasons, and are probably not going to again after this one.

There are two structures, a Main House with a Master Bedroom, and 4 single beds upstairs in a two bedroom a-frame configuration. A detached Guest Cottage built for two with a Queen Bed and private bath with shower completes the property. Shanunga boasts a unusually large yard for Sconset, with a hedge around the entire property that gives it a high degree of privacy that is rare in Sconset proper. We have all the modern conveniences with the exception of A/C (which most cottages don't have because the cool ocean breeze does the trick), and if there is anything you need to make your stay even more comfortable, or your experience even more memorable, we'll accommodated it if we can. Our Caretaker is on island and will deal with anything from a leaky faucet to a restaurant suggestion.

Conveniently located a mere block away from the small town of S'conset, Shanunga is only a two minute walk to either the beach or the shuttle service that runs virtually everywhere on the island. Golf, tennis, and a great restaurant are all less than a quarter mile from the house. Bike paths abound. Plus all the necessary amenities to make your stay comfortable and memorable as we can.
