House, 5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)
About Jamie Gries
I have been in the garment industry for 20 years in NYC. I purchased and remodeled this house over a three year period to turn it into my personal sanctuary. My slice of heaven. I have three children who have vacationed on Nantucket for the past 14 years. We truly love this island and this house.
Jamie Gries purchased this House in 2001
Why Jamie Gries chose Tom Nevers
Nantucket has been my very favorite travel destination for the past fifteen years. I love the beach, ocean, biking, kayaking, shopping, history, fine dining, and spending time with family and friends on Nantucket. It is the ideal spot to do all these things.
What makes this House unique
Peace and quiet. Beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Outdoor activities and dining on the property. Many friends have said they never had to leave the property. The house kept them entertained and happy. Most people chose to sunbathe, garden, enjoy outdoor activities, and dine/party right on the property.

Jamie is a wonderful host. Since this was our first visit to the island, she provided great information and introductions as we prepared for the trip. Once we reached the island, we found her recommendations - a full page of restaurants, jeep and bike rentals, beaches, sightseeing and other activities - to be very helpful. During our stay, the new washing machine was not working, so she picked up laundry and arranged for it to be commercially laundered. The interior of her home is well-decorated, as shown in the listing photos. The exterior is under construction and was not particularly usable during our stay. The hot tub mentioned in the listing was not functioning and the master shower was out of commission. The location shown on the map is not as close to the beach as the vrbo map suggests. We enjoyed our stay on the island immensely and as the ongoing renovations are completed, Jamie's house will be a very attractive location.
an absolutely beautiful home!!!
Nirvana ! A slice of heaven on Nantucket . A beautifully decorated home with a warm welcoming feeling from the garden room to beautiful bathrooms, sumptuous bedrooms to a magnificent great room, you feel like you are in a 5 star hotel ! I will always make this gem my Nantucket retreat
Perfect family vacation spot
My family has returned to this house numerous times. My sister loves to come to this house to escape the extreme Texas heat, and she loves the ocean breezes you feel at this spot.
From the second and third floor you can see the ocean and sweeping views of Sankaty lighthouse and Sconset.
Every room in this house is done to perfection.
The beds are all extremely comfortable and the rain shower in master bedroom is a family favorite.
There are many spots inside the house that need to be enjoyed. Every room on the second floor have French double doors that lead out to a second story deck that goes the length of the house. Perfect spot for grilling and dining or just listening to music. The kitchen has every appliance and gadget you could imagine and the wet bar in the great room is well appointed.
The great room is where the whole family has spent many nights watching movies and the house has a game table and many games to play.
House is big enough that we never felt crowded even though there were ten of us,
This is a spot we will return to for many years!
Most beautiful relaxed vacation with ocean views
This was our first time to Nantucket, and this house and location surpassed all of our expectations. The way the house is oriented, allows for magnificent ocean breezes through the top floor of the house. We spent most of our time relaxing on the patio watching fog roll out in the morning, and playing Bocce in the yard. The location in Tom Nevers is a little out of the way ($35 cab ride from the ferry), but that is part of it's charm. As a guest you truly feel like you can relax and take a breather.
The owner has a few games / puzzles in the house, along with bikes to ride to the beach ( 1/2 mile away). I would recommend this house to anyone that wants to explore the island past downtown and experience what Nantucket is really all about.
Could have been better
We were on Nantucket for a family reunion. The house was lovely and more than enough room for all of us. The hot tub did not work and we were told it would be fixed, which never happened. The care taker was rather rude when asked about different items we were unsure of and used foul language the day we checked out because we were unsure of the exit instructions. I tried calling the owner with no luck. My family may be from Nantucket, but not all of us live there and know the ins and outs of Nantucket society. The owner seems to accommodate those they choose to and not others. I will look for other accommodation's for the next family reunion.
I knew we would have a different perspective when my neighbor texted me a picture of a sign that was erected at the end of my driveway that said "Kemick Family Reunion Here."!..........
Amazing home on Nantucket
My family of 5 and my parents stayed at this georgeous home for 3 weeks last summer. We were greeted with a bottle of wine and a lovely hand written note from the owner. This home has all the best to offer. Beautifully decorated, georgeous ocean views, an amazing garden, dishes for all types of entertaining, the best linens on the beds, plenty of space to be together and many quiet areas to curl up with a book. This vacation home feels like your own vacation home. We couldn't wait to return and have already booked for summer 2013!! My search is over for the perfect house to return to year after year!!
