About Steve Friedman
We have lived in the mountains of Colorado and Utah since the 70's but always searched for the perfect ocean getaway. We found it on Nantucket and Brant Point in particular. Both of our sons are skiers and surfers so our family has the best of both worlds here in Utah and Nantucket. I taught them to ski and they taught me to surf. We also love to fish, ride bikes, and paddle board.
Steve Friedman purchased this House in 2005
Why Steve Friedman chose Nantucket Town
Our first vacation on Nantucket was in 1984 when our sons were just 1 and 4. Until we purchased our first home on Nantucket in 1996 we rented different homes from nearly one end of the island to the other. But we always gravitated back to Brant Point. You just cannot find a better location for a vacation on Nantucket for the convenience of being able to walk to shops, restaurants, beaches and the ferry, not to mention the 'Juice Bar' for that homemade ice cream. When we sold that first home we owned on the island in 2005 we bought our new home just 5 houses down the street. We just could not leave the island or Brant Point.
What makes this House unique
Location, location, location. A short walk to great beaches, downtown, and all the restaurants, bars, shopping, and the best ice cream on the island at Juicebar. This home is great for large families or two families who want to vacation together. It's great for entertaining indoors and out. Lets make some memories!
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Beautiful Nantucket !
This was a wonderful house! The location was the excellent. The house was very large and lovely! The owner was so responsive and even brought us umbrellas! We can’t wait to return to this house!
Perfect house for family get together. Plenty of room for everyone even when it rained. Very comfortable and close to town and beaches.
Amazing home and location!
We had such a lovely stay at this home - the pictures don’t do the open second floor justice. The house was spacious and well appointed and was stocked with anything you could want during your time on island - plenty of beach towels, beach chairs, coolers and a fully loaded kitchen as well. The location cannot be beat - extremely easy walk to both town and beaches. We have two small children and Steve was so helpful connecting us with a rental for baby equipment. We will definitely be back!
Great house, great location
This house has everything you need for a great vacaton.
Great location, great accommodations,.
This house was everything we expected and more, great layout, clean, well appointed and we could walk to town and the beaches!
We rented this house for a girls weekend. I have rented many houses and this is, by far, one of the nicest. The house is HUGE! Great location. Owners were incredibly responsive and helpful. The house is incredibly well stocked.
Thanks for the review.
We are located in Brant Point, considered to be the best location for your vacation on Nantucket Island. Our location is great for a true family beach vacation you will never forget. Brant Point is close to all the downtown amenities from the Steam Authority and Hyline Ferry terminals, beaches, shops, bars and restaurants, grocery stores, liquor stores, and museums.
For an ideal day at the beach, walk to Jetties where they have a playground, life guards on duty, restrooms, changing rooms, and a full restaurant bar called Sandbar. This is the most family friendly beach on the island close to your doorstep. We recommend catching the sunset and packing a picnic at Steps beach, or oysters at the Sandbar (their calamari is also worth trying)!
For those with a sweet tooth, Nantucket Island’s best ice cream is 2 blocks away at The Juice Bar. Get the waffle cone, it’s worth it. They do special flavors daily so be on the lookout for something truly unique. And for those who are dairy free, not to worry, they have coconut based ice cream flavors daily.
For those who like to be in the scene with waterfront dining, Cru is one of the best places to be. The lobster roll is unbeatable as is the people watching. If you want to have a cocktail on the sand try the Galley restaurant just down the street.
For a more family dining environment try Brotherhood of Thieves. They have an excellent atmosphere, great food and drink so there’s something for everyone.
Half a block away is the Island’s premier wine emporium called Epernay. The owners know their vintage and share their love for wine with frequent wine tastings, specials, and anything you could ask for in the realm of beverages.
We have plenty of parking but a car is not needed while vacationing in Brand Point. If you want to travel around Nantucket island the bike baths are well maintained and there are a number of bike rental shops near our home. Cook's is just down the street. Once you wash the sand a salt off in the outdoor shower at the end of the day, all evening festivities are a short walk away from sunset to restaurants.
If you are using a car we recommend leaving it at our home at night. You can easily walk to Jetties beach or Steps beach for the sunset, or downtown for food, drinks, shopping and all evening activities.
