About David 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.

David Holbrook purchased this house in 2012

Why David Holbrook chose Tom Nevers

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.

Very enjoyable!

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful slice of heaven in this charming, well stocked home located in the quiet Tom Nevers neighborhood. Walk to beach & short bike ride into Sconset.

Hope to return soon again!

Great family house, close to private beach!

  • 5 of 5

Great backyard/deck for family; quiet neighborhood away from town but close to private beach; four bedrooms - plenty of space for family of five; afternoons on the deck; fun lawn games and plenty of beach supplies included. Hosts were wonderful and attentive; they had a great guide book for the island of things to do, etc. We have been vacationing in Nantucket for 10 years - one of our best property experiences ! We will be returning!!!

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.
