You’ll want to hang out in the yard, fire up the grill while sipping your beverage and listen to the pounding surf. Delight in the birds & bunnies and watch the unique light of the island as you enjoy the bounty from the gardens, farms and waters of Nantucket.

About Christine Colletti

We are year round, on-island owners, Bob & Christine and have custom built this cottage. We will welcome you to Nantucket and provide friendly insight to island living especially if you are a first timer to Nantucket.

Why Christine Colletti chose Nantucket

Safe, quiet, and peaceful neighborhood. The house is meticulously clean. The property setting is quite unique with our green grassy yard, shade provided by the sassafras trees and scrub oaks, parking for two cars and if you are here at the right time...some fresh tomatoes, cukes, and basil from our garden!

What makes this cottage unique

Tom Nevers East is the island's best kept secret...SHHH!!

We are part of a homeowners association that for close to 30 years has taken great pride in the efforts made to maintain our six miles of private, surfaced roads that are well marked, easily accessed and in good condition always with the safety and security of our friends and neighbors in mind.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wow, what a vacation! Christine & Bob's cottage and grounds were immaculate (pics & description are accurate but do not do it justice!). They truly thought of everything down to the last detail. Loved the welcome note, homemade pound cake and mini bottles of Prosecco, yum! You can really see the pride they take in their home. It was such a pleasure to be their guests. Christine & Bob were so friendly and quick with helpful suggestions to make the most of our stay.

The location and neighborhood are perfect, a close bike ride or drive into town, but the backyard is its own private oasis! We enjoyed a great BBQ session one night and dinner under the stars!

If you're thinking of staying on Nantucket, your search is truly over!!! We can't wait to come back.

Adorable Clean Escape!

  • 5 of 5

My fiance and our friends were lucky enough to rent this little cottage over LDW. Having grown up on island, I'm pretty particular with where I choose to stay and this little abode exceeded all of our expectations! Its setting is quiet and serene and the property and home are so well maintained! Anything we might have forgotten was stocked in the house, beach chairs, coffee (score), plastic cups, etc. Highlights for us were the scenery and privacy, cozy tv room, proximity to Sconset via bikepath and the beautiful outdoor shower! We couldn't have been happier with our choice! Its the perfect escape for anyone!

Thanks again to the Colletti's for the warm welcome, the wonderful stay and the treats! We can't wait to come back!

Great cottage in Tom Nevers

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this cottage for our honeymoon. We had been to Nantucket before, but Christine was so helpful as soon as we had booked the cottage, she sent us recommendations for getting to the island, and as our trip got closer she kept us updated on everything about the cottage. They take pride in their home and you can tell, everything was clean, and well maintained. They were around all week to help us with questions and suggestions, they even had champagne and muffins waiting for us upon our arrival. Tom Nevers is a little far from town, but we had our car and had no problem getting anywhere. We also liked how close they were to the bike path, and it was a quick ride to Sconset. We would recommend this cottage to anyone, and hope to return soon!

Owner's Response: We appreciate the wonderful remarks you made mentioning all that our cottage has to offer and our honest efforts to welcome you to our clean, comfortable, peaceful “home away from home” during your vacation week. The location of Tom Nevers East seems so far away from it all yet it is only 11 minutes to Town by car with easy access to bike paths, beaches and all the great points of interest Nantucket has to enjoy. We are thrilled when a vacationer chooses our fantastic cottage to enhance the Nantucket experience.

Charming and lovely cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed at 2 Sandpiper Way for the second time. The first was for our minimoon and just last week for our babymoon. We love this cottage and the location. It's a close drive to Sconset, a few beaches and about 10 minutes to town. Christine and Bob are also very kind and keep a lovely cottage! We look forward to going back soon for more memories!

Our new favorite place...

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from our stay in this wonderful cottage. We have stayed in many places around the island and this was our favorite in this price range. The house is so lovingly maintained by Christine and Bob. They met us on arrival to give us a tour of the house, vegetables from their garden, a bottle of wine and a plate of delicious cookies! Everything is sparkling clean. The bed and linens are very comfortable. The sitting area off the upstairs bedroom is beautiful and very comfortable for relaxing on a rainy day. Christine has provided a good assortment of books and magazines. The kitchen is well stocked for cooking, there is a nice grill just outside the kitchen door. The yard is so quiet and peaceful for enjoying time outdoors. Great outdoor shower! It is very shaded with the sun just peaking through the branches. The sitting area overlooks their beautiful garden. Christine has thought of every last detail inside and out to make guests comfortable. Bob was always eager to hear our fishing stories when we met in the driveway. We really enjoyed getting to know this wonderful couple and learn their perspective of this beautiful island. We felt so welcome as they are very friendly but not at all intrusive. The location of this home is wonderful as well. In a neighborhood of well maintained homes with a lot of privacy, just a short bicycle ride to a quiet beach, and a nice ride to S'conset as well. It was a perfect place to relax and we can't wait to return again next year.

Owner's Response: What a fantastic review and thank you for taking the time to do that! You really touched upon all the niceties we like to offer our guests and your description of the house, property, location (and us) was so detailed and thoughtful. It is a wonderful complement to the pictures that we have on the site and rounds out our perception of the cottage. All of this makes me want to spend a night or two at the cottage!

Magical Place

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing vacation. The home was very welcoming, clean and neat as a pin. My daughter described it as a magical fairy house. As we first entered the driveway the green trees surrounded the drive and the house was sweetly nestled in. The owners had a beautiful garden and the bunnies would always be hopping around it eating grass. We spent a lot of time in the yard. There were colorful adirondack chairs and also an antique iron table and chairs. We would sit out there for almost every meal. Christine had herbs in a colorful pot right there if we wanted to use them. Everything we needed for cooking on the grill was supplied and propane refills are there if you need it. The outdoor clothesline was handy for when we came back from the beach. Christine and Bob had chairs, towels and a beach umbrella for the beach so you don't have to lug those over on the ferry. The kitchen had everything you needed for cooking and Christine started us out with condiments, oil, bags, foil etc. to get us started. The house had air conditioning units which enabled us to keep out any pollen in case you have allergies (and yes I do) so my allergies did great here.

The area is so beautiful with the natural vegetation left around all the houses and long dirt driveways leading in. It was like stepping back in time. We really liked how it wasn't full of mansions with manicured yards but natural and SO beautiful. Christine suggested many places to visit. Sunset at Sankaty Lighthouse, sunset at Madaket Beach, hike to Altar Rock (park in the third parking area for the shortest walk), sunsets at the Serengeti Fields off Milestone Road. There are so many different types of landscape here: moors, grasslands, beach, serengeti,and forest. Spend time to explore the island to check it all out. Walking around the downtown area is fun and the architecture is so beautiful and the cobblestone streets are quaint - just be careful of the one way streets if you are driving. There isn't a lot of signage on getting to specific places so pick up a good road map at the Visitors Center on Federal Street. My favorite spot was Sconset -it was like another world. The roses covering the cottages were in full bloom in June . There is a cliff walk along the front of the houses that starts in town between houses (no signs so just explore) and goes for about 1/2 mile. Cisco brewery/winery/distillery is a fun afternoon. We will definitely be back to this Island !!!!!

Owner's Response: A big thank you for your fantastic review. I really appreciate that you took SO much care in writing such a descriptive piece. You touched upon all the aspects of our cottage that I hope our guests will enjoy and appreciate such as all the amenities we provide and how they enhance the vacation experience. Also, from my understanding a review that gives some added insight to the area is very helpful to travelers. You did just that with your information about the nature walks, the best spots for sunsets, some favs such as the Brewery and Sconset Bluff walk and even advice on picking up the map at the visitor center.
