Leisure :: Beachside Lounging

"On the beach, you can live in bliss." ~ Dennis Wilson

THE PURSUIT: A locale where the reward for merely strolling outdoors promises warm sun on skin, soft sand in toes, and cool breezes that carry the calming, salty scent of the ocean; where lounging is at the top of the agenda, and, other leisures, such as reading, light napping, and picnicking, are effortlessly accomplished from the comforts of a perfectly picked spot . . .

THE DISCOVERY: BEACHSIDE HOMES

It is said that life at the beach is different, that time does not move hour to hour, but mood to moment; that those lucky enough to call the beach home—for any amount of time—live by the currents, plan by the tides, and follow the sun. It is this leisurely sensibility that inspires us to seek such a place for an afternoon, a weekend, or an extended stay. Accordingly, here are 6 destinations, worldwide, for your beach lounging consideration

Shearwater :: Nantucket, MA, US

Conceded a waterfront paradise, Nantucket is the perfect home to Shearwater, a 2-story, 3200 square foot seafront cottage where 5 spacious bedrooms are prepared to generously accommodate 10-12 guests, and still, there is plenty of space to entertain, from the completely remodeled gourmet kitchen to the family room with barn doors that open onto the large stone patio and expansive yard beyond; and of course, one of the best amenities being the breathtaking 180-degree views of Nantucket Harbor, nearby towns and creeks, and natural preserve—a waterfront paradise indeed.
