BeautifulPlaces Adds Nantucket's Harborview
Place to Villa Rental Portfolio

Pristine Waterfront Homes with Five-Star Amenities and Services In Top U.S. Travel Destination

BeautifulPlaces, the international luxury villa hospitality and experiential travel company, will now exclusively represent, Harborview Place, an enclave of prime real estate on Nantucket. “We are pleased to welcome Harborview Place into the BeautifulPlaces villa rental portfolio. Nantucket was high on our guests’ request list with its unique combination of historical significance, old world charm, exclusivity and modern luxury,” stated Patrick Smith, CEO and co-founder of BeautifulPlaces (www.beautiful-places.com). Added Smith, “These ten private waterfront residences which include five-star ‘on island’ amenities plus a dedicated concierge are a perfect fit with the exceptional lifestyle experiences BeautifulPlaces offers our clients. With Harborview Place as our anchor on the island, we will be adding other exceptional properties to our Nantucket portfolio. ”

Located on the waterfront, just two blocks from Main Street and Straight Wharf and adjacent to a secluded beach, Harborview Place was designed by noted architects, workshop/apd , to fit seamlessly into the Nantucket landscape blending modern sensibilities, restoration aesthetics and green elements with the classic cottage architecture of the region. Unlike hotel rooms, each of the one-three bedroom residences in the compound has a distinctive personalized décor including top of the line kitchens and bathrooms, plasma TVs, wireless internet, I-Pod docking stations and much more plus quintessential waterfront views. With its private club ambiance, Harborview offers guests a variety of exclusive five-star amenities with a professional staff including an on-site concierge to see to their every need prior to their arrival and during their stay including complimentary airport and ferry transfers, beach and boat services, spa appointments, and afternoon teas and events plus custom travel itineraries. Harborview is the rare combination of residential living and private club services in perfect harmony with the relaxed ‘on island’ lifestyle that makes Nantucket a most cherished destination.

“The timing could not have been better” adds Liza Graves, COO and co-founder of BeautifulPlaces. “We are ready to take reservations. Although July and August are the most popular months, the Nantucket tourist season has been lengthened with several popular events like the Daffodil Festival in April, the popular Wine Festival in May, a Film Festival in June and the many holiday-themed celebrations throughout the year.”

Nantucket, a small island located 30 miles off the coast of Cape Cod, was once the whaling capital of the world. Today it offers an old meets new philosophy with “all the creature comforts of the 21st century wrapped in an elegant 19th century package” (New York Times). The distinct character and traditional charm, carefully preserved thanks to local regulations, has made the island a popular secluded getaway. The island’s one town, Nantucket, hugs the harbor and features cobblestone streets, historic sites, bountiful stores, homespun restaurants and seaside attractions. Forty percent of the island is designated as conserved land with rolling moors, heaths, miles of exquisite beaches and charming landmarks including three lighthouses and an operating windmill. Cars are not a necessity which helps to preserve the fresh air, quiet tone and relaxed pace of the island.
