About Kathleen Holbrook

Kathy along with her husband David and friend Blaise own this home. Blaise is retired and enjoys the place off-season while Kathy and David are looking forward to retirement in the near future which will allow them more time for Nantucket. Kathy and David live in Boston while Blaise lives in New York. We all bring different strengths to this venture but hospitality is our common goal.

Kathleen Holbrook purchased this house in 2012

Why Kathleen Holbrook chose Nantucket

After years of vacationing on Nantucket, we decided to see if we could actually purchase a place on this special island. We consider ourselves extremely lucky to have found 12 Old Tom Nevers. This duplex was once Naval Officers Housing and having been built by the government is exceptionally sturdy. Renovated in 2011 it is a very comfortable home with good-sized bedrooms and an expanded deck. The classic cottage style house is landscaped with native plant material, has excellent light and wonderful ocean breezes with the sound of the surf at the front door. The neighborhood is quiet and a short stroll takes one to community stairs accessing the beach. We have continued to upgrade and improve this property and enjoy having the opportunity to share our home with others.

What makes this house unique

12 Old Tom Nevers is an excellent location to just kick back and relax. Rise early to catch the sunrise over the beach, watch the rabbits frolic on the lawn, enjoy morning coffee on the deck, play lawn games, grill lunch, take a nap on the beach, freshen up with an outdoor shower, fine dine at one of many restaurants in town, and star glaze before bedtime.

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

My 4th time staying here with 5 other people in our party. Clean and well maintained. Short walk to the beach. Quiet area. Nice to get away from the crowds in town and at other ACK beaches. Everything you need to have a relaxing vacation.

Beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

We rented this lovely house , which is in pristine condition for a week in late June . It was well stocked with all the basics , all the appliances and decor were pastime. The deck and garden are very comfortable, the stroll to Tom Nevers is easy access to cycle paths and Sconset and the light house are an easy cycle, it is also close to the great bus service if you have multi generations and don't want to taxi them into town .

We loved staying here and hope to get back there again soon.

Great house, lovely owners, wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5, including 3 school-age kids, were fortunate enough to spend a fun, relaxing and very active week in this beautiful home over the July 4th weekend and following week.

The listing and photos accurately describe the home and the amenities, but there is so much more to love about the place - starting with the owners, who were so pleasant and helpful and made us feel so welcome in their home.

A 5-minute walk to one of the most beautiful ocean-side beaches on the island, which is essentially a private haven for the neighborhood. The 2-tiered deck is perfect for a family dinner or just lounging, and the private backyard is large enough for the kids to play.

Inside, the house is the ideal set-up with enough living space to cook a nice meal, enjoy it at the dinner table and then relax with a book, board game or watch some TV in the living room area. Everything down to the comfortable beds and soft sheets to the abundant and clean linens made our stay enjoyable and easy.

Honestly, there is nothing in our experience we would change, and we hope to spend another wonderful week, (or more?) here in future years.

Well maintained, short walk to beach, great value.

  • 5 of 5

The best value on Nantucket. Well maintained, clean, open floor plan. You can hear the ocean, which is a short walk away. The beach is never busy. Quiet neighborhood for long walks. We had seven people here for a week and had a great time. Large deck in a secluded back yard. You've never seen so many stars at night from this deck. Highly recommended. We will be back.

An enchanting Nantucket getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We met with friends in this totally charming house. The location of the property is ideal for those who enjoy their privacy, but they can also be in town after a short drive to experience unique shopping opportunities, restaurants, and all Nantucket Island has to offer! The beach is within walking distance. The house is perfect for large families and entertaining. The bedrooms and open concept living area are spacious. The two-tiered outside deck is perfect for outdoor entertaining or relaxing, and the cozy fireplace in the living room is ideal for cool Nantucket evenings. The kitchen is fully equipped, and towels and linens are plentiful. The house is bright, comfortable, and beautifully decorated with quaint details. The landscaping and grounds are impeccable. We cannot wait to return to this property to experience the magic of Nantucket Island once again!

Gorgeous! Pristine and excellent location...

  • 5 of 5

Our family were lucky enough to have stayed at this gorgeous home on Tom Nevers for a week this past summer and had the time of our lives. The home has a terrific private backyard and deck where we enjoyed our happy hours and they even had outdoor games available that we entertained ourselves with as well! The interior was meticulously kept and a perfect size for all of us. Location was prime! We will be back next year for sure and every year that follows.
