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.

Perfect stay!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our week-long stay at this property. It was clean, close to the beach, and quiet at night. Couldn't have asked for more! The owners were very friendly and helpful. Our visit was a true delight and we look forward to returning!

Good Value with Great Hosts

  • 5 of 5

A short and pleasant walk through Nantucket moors and you are on your own private beach. The house was neat and well equiped and our hosts were very helpful and informative (not to mention interesting). Don't let the airport dissuade you because being so close to the beach is a nice bonus. If you don't have a car you'll need bikes, but if you know the island it is very easy to get to everything you need. Would definitely consider this house again.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for the great review. You were great guests and we admired the way you rode bikes everywhere. Despite the threat of Hurricane Matthew, you both took it all in stride. Thank you for taking such good care of the cottage!

Our Stay at 73 Pochick

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Barbara & Marks cottage was absolute perfection. The cottage was very clean & comfortable and equipped with anything you might need. The cottage is in a very private and serene setting. Barbara and Mark were gracious and helpful. Anyone would love to come here. Obtained a Beach Buggy permit and went to the end of Ester Island. Also went on Nobadeer Surfside and Eel Point beaches Would recommend this property to anyone. Bob And Rena Whiting N.J. P.S. FREE BUNNIES

Owner's Response: And, Bob and Rena were terrific tenants! Despite having not the best of weather, they were adventuresome and headed for the beaches regardless of fog, rain or drizzle. They left the house spotless and we hope that they will return next year. We will still have free bunnies!

Perfect Nantucket vacation at the cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was advertised just as it was and we loved our stay at the cottage. Barbara was very helpful and checked in on us to make sure we were settled in and gave us information about traveling the island. Much of the time we were content staying in the cottage instead of traveling out because it was so beautiful and peaceful. We sat on the deck and grilled while listening to the ocean and watching the birds and the bunnies. We saw a few white tailed deer on the bike trails. The cottage is updated and is equipped with most everything you need. We only traveled with bicycles as our mode of transportation and we wouldn't do it any other way. Once you learn the bike trails a little you can navigate throughout the island nicely and get to town in about 20-25 minutes. A few times we took a cab when we wanted to shop or dress up and that was about a 10 minute cab ride for around $20. We thought this property was well maintained, in a great location, and affordable. Thanks again Barbara and Mark!

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!
