Overview
Holiday Rental House -
5 Bedrooms, 7 Bathrooms, Sleeps 12
Nantucket, Massachusetts
Winner 2012 and 2013 Flipkey/TripAdvisor Top Vacation Rental Award! The moment you drive up the circular shell driveway and see the stonework, gardens and wrap-around farmers’ porches, you're going to feel all the comfort and delight of being at your own dream home. From sunrise flooding the breakfast area until the last rays of the sun set over the moors, the entire house glows with the beauty of Nantucket’s ever-changing light. Custom built and brimming with unique architectural details and appointments of the highest quality, it is a house sophisticated enough for entertaining but comfortable enough to just kick off your flip flops, put on some music and relax after a tough day at the beach. “Incandescence” is decorated in a warm English country style with plenty of antique pine and chintz. And although this large (4,800 square... Read more

We rented Incandescence for 4th of July week with our group of friends and had the greatest time. Ron and Lauren were beyond accommodating and were quick to fix any issues we had. The house is spacious, private, and beautiful - absolutely perfect for a bigger group or large families. So nice to not be on top of each other...
