Tom Nevers House Rental Photos and Description

5 En-suite BRs, 5 full baths, 2 half baths, House sleeps 12, Cottage sleeps 4.

CHRISTMAS STROLL WEEKEND: During Stroll Weekend this year, December 5-7, 2014, we are offering rooms at 'Incandescence' on a Guest House basis. A hearty continental breakfast is included in your room rate. We are also making arrangements for a shuttle van into town twice in the mornings at no additional charge. (You'll be on your own to get back to Tom Nevers when you're done with your activities in town.) Contact us for more info about available rooms and rates.

Don't miss our 'Incandescence' VIDEO TOUR (See link below or copy and paste this link: https://vimeo.com/28339834)

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 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 a collection of vintage Ralph Lauren linens. And although this large (4,800 square foot) house comfortably sleeps 12, it is chock full of unpretentious places, intimate spaces, and the quirky little hideaways that make a classic Nantucket home linger forever in your memory ... [click More Details]

The Bedrooms and Baths: 'Incandescence' is spacious enough for two or even three families to vacation together. Each of the five bedrooms has its own beautifully tiled en suite bath, and there are two half baths off the 'public' rooms.

The huge master bedroom on the second floor boasts a private covered balcony and a spa-sized, luxurious, tumbled-marble bath with a jacuzzi tub, from which there are beautiful views across Tom Nevers and out to sea. The master bath also has his & her sinks and a large two-person, glass-enclosed shower with double shower-heads and multiple wall jets.

Two of the bedrooms on the first floor - one with a king bed, and one with a full bed and futon -are off a large, private hallway. Both rooms are large (particularly the king), and could easily serve as second 'masters' when two or three families vacation together. Another bedroom - with two twins (that can be converted to a king) - is off the living area. Bedroom #5 has a queen bed and is on the second floor.

The 'Living' Areas: The living room features cathedral ceilings, high gable windows, a wood burning fireplace, and French doors out to the deck, which is equipped with table, chairs, umbrella, gas grill and an outdoor shower. A wonderful gourmet kitchen with butter-yellow glazed cabinetry, limestone counters and stainless steel appliances awaits your culinary flair; an open floor plan to the large dining area allows hosts and guests to feel equally at home. Off the kitchen is a charming, inviting family room with stereo, TV and games for the whole family, plus a gas-fired fireplace to take the chill off those late summer/early Fall nights. Air conditioning, cable, high speed Internet, and WiFi allow you to remain comfortable and stay in touch, even on the “Far Away Land.”

An experience to always remember!

  • 5 of 5
This house is an absolute gem that I had found one day thumbing through flip key. I was getting ready to make arrangements to have my family over on Nantucket for my wedding and though what a perfect idea to have them all stay within the same house. Our plan was to be married at Brant Point lighthouse, and what a day it was! We had all of our family and friends ( 12 in all ) to just have a celebration and relax in this magnificent house. I can't convey enough what a pleasure it was connecting with Lauren. She was very hospitable and welcoming. I will always remember my wedding day on this charming Island and spending the week in this beautiful house! What a find

The best way to experience Nantucket!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this beautiful home for a week with my family. The house fit 8 adults and 3 kids perfectly. It had amazing space for us to congregate as a family and for each of us to have our own private space to read. And the house had tons of books including many written by Nantucket authors so you can learn about where you want to visit and the history of Nantucket. One of my favorite parts was the wrap around deck in the front. The yard was awesome for the kids to play in and we all enjoyed spending some time up on the widow's watch and yelling across to some neighbors while they were on their widow's watch. The house was clean and comfortable. The owners are sweet people that are very invested in their home and making sure their guests have a great stay. We liked being in a quiet neighborhood and having space so that we could choose when we wanted to go to town in the hustle and bustle. If you can't tell... I highly recommend this home for a memorable Nantucket vacation - we will definitely come again.

Great vacation home Beautiful house!

  • 5 of 5
This house is so beautiful, it has gorgeous woodwork and tile! It has a wide open floor plan and is so bright and has beautiful furnishings as well! There are so many bedrooms and bathrooms, each bedroom has an adjoining one and there are two extra as well! Centrally located, the beaches nearby are so quiet and private, you feel like you are on your own deserted island. So perfect, will definitely come back!

Charming and spacious home close to beach

  • 5 of 5
We were thrilled with this lovely, expansive home close to Tom Nevers beach. We needed a property that could accommodate 10 of us comfortably and this fit the bill perfectly. The owners were gracious and attentive to our needs which impressed us greatly. We loved the location since it was very private yet only took us three minutes to get to the beach. There were no crowds and plenty of parking. It was almost like having a private beach of one's own. Having a rental on as much land as this one is made us feel like we were in our own private compound yet we were really only about 4 miles away from town. Home had all the modern conveniences that we needed and we particularly loved the deck and yard. Would definitely return!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words of appreciation. I'm so glad you mentioned the proximity to the beach and how much you enjoyed it. Many people are familiar with Surfside and Jetties but don't know or forget that there are a lot of other beautiful beaches on the island, including the one just down the road from our house (Tom Nevers Beach) which is both unspoiled and uncrowded. Thank you for being terrific guests. Ron and I took delight in your delight! We look forward to hosting you and your family again.

Tom Nevers
Car: recommended

Located in the quiet Tom Nevers East section of the island, this lovely home allows easy access to all the pleasures of Nantucket summers even while sitting serenely on three lush, private acres, surrounded by gardens, up a long, private winding driveway. Since the part of Tom Nevers we are in is all zoned for 3 acre lots, there is a lot of privacy -- few houses and a lot of vegetation. There are lovely distant ocean views from the second and third floors. From the easily accessed widow’s walk, enjoy views of the South Shore, the Cranberry Bogs, Low Beach and Sankaty Lighthouse. After returning from the beach or your adventures in town or hiking through the nearby Middle Moors, enjoy outdoor games in the spacious backyard, pull up a chaise lounge or curl up on the wicker furniture on the sprawling front porch, grill the day’s catch on the back deck's gas grill, take a nap in the hammock, watch the incredible night sky just outside your door - without the lights of town interfering - and delight in the best of Nantucket!

We are only minutes from the bike path, and a WAVE (shuttle bus) stop into town (which is about a 12 minute drive), about a 7 minute drive to 'mid-island' -- where you'll find a Stop & Shop and several pharmacies, and about a 4 minute drive to the village of Siasconset ('Sconset), where you can park your chair on the gorgeous beach, catch some rays, read a good book, and when you get hungry, leave everything there and walk up the stairs from the beach right into the middle of the quaintest, most charming village. There's a general store with all kinds of good things, including the most delicious coconut and ginger ice creams. Then take a stroll around and look at some of the famous rose-covered cottages -- all framed by the sparkling blue sea. 'Sconset offers five restaurants (besides the general store): a cute sandwich shop (Claudette's); the beach-side bistro at the Summer House; the upstairs bar and restaurant at the Summer House; The Sconset Cafe, which has a really nice breakfast, offers lunch and a BYOB dinner (the liquor/wine shop is adjacent to it); and The Chanticleer which offers an upscale dinning room and a more casual bar dining area (lunch in season).

We are about a mile and a half walk to the closest beach (Tom Nevers Beach). This summer, two sets of our guests simply raved about Tom Nevers Beach, saying they couldn't understand why it was so uncrowded but that it was beautiful and they felt like they were on their own private island. You get there by just walking straight down the road until you come to the sea. Probably about 15 or 20 minutes by foot.
