There are 4 bedrooms (2 Queens, 3 twins, bunk beds) and a loft with 2 futons. There are 3 bathrooms as well as an outdoor shower.

The fully equipped kitchen even has an espresso machine.

The house is equipped with cable/HDTV, DVD player, and wireless internet.

Laundry room with washer and dryer.

Gas grill on the deck.

About Celeste Theis

Ellis Island is owned by a small group of long-time friends who met many years ago in graduate school at Brown University. We came to Nantucket on vacation and fell in love with the natural beauty and historical quaintness of the island.

Celeste Theis purchased this house in 1995

Why Celeste Theis chose Tom Nevers

This is a wonderfully comfortable house in a quiet, private neighborhood. There is a large yard, perfect for playing croquet or frisbee. A great, kid-friendly house perfect for a couple of families to share.

It is a short drive to town, the ferry, the airport, Sconset, and the beach.

What makes this house unique

We love:

- The peace and quiet of Tom Nevers.

- Morning coffee on the deck, listening to the birds.

- Reading a book in the rocking chair on the front porch in the late afternoon.

And in between: going to the beach, shopping, biking, walking.

All you could need.

  • 5 of 5

Three good size bedrooms and two full baths on the first and a large, private master bedroom with large full bath on the second. Second has open floor plan as well, including kitchen area with breakfast counter, dining area with seating for eight and living area with couch, loveseat, two rockers and an overstuffed chair and ottoman. You can access the large deck from the living area and master bedroom. There is also a nice front porch with a rocker and bench. Very private lot with room for kids to play. It is just two miles or so from Sconset, a quick car ride or nice bike ride. The kitchen is well stocked for all your cooking needs and there are plenty of beach towels, blankets and household supplies. Highly recommended.
