About Barbara A. White

My husband and I are retired Nantucket teachers. I am a local historian, too, with several books at the local bookstores.

Why Barbara A. White chose Massachusetts

We love our island location, close to town, close to the beach and on a dead-end road so that we have privacy.

Wonderful Surfside

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is well equipped, a 7 minute walk to the lovely beach and nicely appointed. The location is central to everything-food stores, bakeries, restaurants, bike paths, the airport and bus service. The property is quiet and private. We could hear the surf at night! The hosts are friendly, accommodating and responsive. It's a lovely property and a great rental.

Nantucket Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had not visited Nantucket in twelve years and so, of course, we were very excited to return. Our two weeks in Barbara and Mark White's beach cottage can only be described as stellar! The cottage is very well equipped with up-to-date appliances throughout. Flat screen TV's and WiFi keep you connected even though you are on The Far Away Island! Ambience is the buzzword here. Listening to the Atlantic pound the shore at night is special! There is a four-burner gas grill on the back deck. The Whites provide beach chairs and towels. The cottage is only 400 yards from Nobadeer beach.

For pointers on what to see and do on Nantucket, Barbara is a local historian and a wealth of knowledge concerning the island. The island is a treasure trove of history. Wining and dining can't be beat. Everything from pizzas and salads to Topper's at the Wauwinet featuring it's Wine Spectator Grand Award cellar and exquisite food. (Take the Wauwinet Lady boat from The White Elephant, across Nantucker Harbor, to arrive at Topper's dockside! The return trip features gorgeous sunsets!)

The Whites are gracious hosts and we plan to stay in their beach cottage whenever we visit Nantucket!

Owner's Response: And, these were wonderful tenants! They left the house immaculate and even knitted us a pot holder! Having people like this in our cottage makes renting so worthwhile. They obviously love the island and visited museums and restaurants and also did a lot of relaxing. We look forward to their return any time they decide to visit the island and hope that they don't leave it for another 12 years!

We loved staying by the beach. It was nice to go into town and experience all that the harbor area had to offer but it was so nice to come back to the beautiful and peaceful surroundings of this property. We were able to get bikes delivered to the house, and we took advantage of the many bike paths on the island. The house itself has everything you would need and Barbara and Mark were very friendly and accommodating.

Everything was perfect. This is the perfect place to experience the island. The house is just as advertised. Cozy, clean, everything you need is there. Grilling on the deck most nights just seemed so relaxing. Private, very short walk to the beach which never seemed too crowded. Its a short bike ride to pick up official bike paths and you can get anywhere that way. The owners (Barbara and Mark) were very responsive and helpful with all questions and really gave the impression that they will do anything for you to ensure a great experience. I can't say enough good things about this truly was one of the more relaxing vacations I had and everything was flawless. A car is not needed if you plan to do some biking, maybe a couple cab rides here and there but - I would say leave the car at home and get the bikes! We plan to return! Thank you Barbara and Mark!!!

Quiet, clean, peaceful getaway!

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful house within walking distance to Nobadeer Beach. The house was perfect for our family of 4. Beautiful views of the ocean from the second floor bedrooms. At night we fell asleep listening to the waves crashing and felt the ocean breezes-amazing! The house was clean and well equipped. The owners Barbara and Mark were wonderful to work with. We highly recommend this cottage!

Peace, quiet, comfort

  • 5 of 5

This is the place to stay if you want to get away from the activity of Nantucket Town, but be only a 10 minute drive away. Located on the moors a short walk to the beach, the cottage is comfortable and bright, has a sunny deck, and the kitchen is well-equipped. Miles of back roads to walk on. Barbara and Mark are very friendly and helpful, got us on a bird walk and lent us their binoculars. This is a gem.
