About Jared Geller

We are a mother and son from Brookline, MA. By training we are both heavily involved in the healthcare field as a healthcare consultant and practicing nurse practitioner, and a dentist, respectively. We both share strong patriotic ties to our country, as a retired US Navy Captain and an active duty US Navy Lieutenant Commander, respectively.

Jared Geller purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Jared Geller chose Nantucket

We have both been vacationing on Nantucket throughout our whole lives and have each spent years on the island as year-round residents. We absolutely love being near the ocean, and who could resist the quaint feel of the cobblestoned streets and historic downtown.

What makes this cottage unique

Location, location, location! A short walk from everything.

Beautiful, family-friendly cottage close to town

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from our stay at 132R Main Street and we had such an incredible experience. I cannot say enough great things about the house. We were 4 adults and an 11 month old, and all comfortably fit. The layout of the house worked perfectly for us, as there were two full baths. At night, we grilled fresh fish for dinner and had cocktails on the front patio. The house was incredibly clean and we were impressed with its condition. As for location, you really cannot beat it! Our only complaint was that we should have booked it for a week!! Big thanks to Jared, too, for being so responsive and making the entire process from A to Z so easy. I am sure you will be hearing from us next year. :)

Adorable cottage, amazing location!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this cottage for a week's stay with my parents and newborn the week following Labor Day. I was a bit worried from the pics that the cottage would be a bit tight for 4 adults and a baby, but was pleasantly surprised to find it was much bigger in person.

The downstairs open living space is nicely furnished with a dining table, sofa, loveseat and tv. The kitchen was well stocked and the downstairs bath recently remodeled. We spent our mornings drinking coffee in the Adirondacks on the front porch admiring the gardens and enjoying the late summer sun. Parking spot was a huge added bonus!

The upstairs bedrooms are small, but plenty of room for what we needed (even fit the Pack n Play in the room with us!). There is a common den area with a futon and tv which we didn't really use, but was nice to have the extra space. The upstairs bath is older and tight, but very cute old clawfoot tub (and better water pressure than downstairs shower!).

The location can't be beat. Plenty of charming old Nantucket homes to drool over on your short walk into town (5min to the top of Main St, 10min max if walking slow), but still super quiet and quaint. Overall had a fantastic experience and would absolutely stay here again!

Awesome cottage and location

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful vacation is this very clean and comfortable cottage. Everything we needed was provided for. We could walk to town easily and avoid having to find parking (which is very difficult). However, the cottage does have parking for 2 cars (which is rare) so we could explore the rest of the island in our rental.

I highly recommend this very well maintained and located cottage.

Charming, Cozy & Convenient!

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay during my first trip to Nantucket! The house was spacious enough for 5 adults and 1 toddler (a pack & play was provided). It was clean, there were ample bath towels and linens available. Large washer & dryer, so you don't have to go crazy packing. Kitchen was well equipped, making meals was a piece of cake. There is a small side yard adjacent to the house, with plenty of room to sunbathe or kick a ball around but we found that the quiet alley in front of the home was just awesome. You can really have a good catch or play some paddle ball out there. Very seldomly did we see a one of the neighbors drive by. It's very quiet and private where the home is located but it's really only about a 5-10 minute walk right down main street into town. There is a beautiful garden in front of the house which the landscapers prune daily. They quietly come and prune/water and are on their way. Very sweet people. My daughter loved watching them in the garden. She also loved the bunnies that came around everyday (notsomuch the bunny poop lol).

Most days we would walk down into town, window shop, have a bite to eat etc. The walk into town is very peaceful, shady and you get to take in all of the beautiful homes on the way. We had a car with us and would drive to jetties beach but easily accessible by bike or bus. We found our 2 yr old was a huge fan of this beach because of the awesome sandbars and mellow waves, as well as the playground they have there. Highly recommend Jetties if you have small children! The house also provides some beach toys and chairs which definitely came in handy!

Above all us I would highly recommend biking or driving Nantucket end to end. Such a cool place to explore. Who knew parts of Nantucket look like the Serengeti?!

I would absolutely stay here again and we're considering it for next year! Would highly recommend it to my closest friends and family! Thank you for the memorable week!

Owner's Response: Wow! What a thorough and kind review of our property. You've highlighted many of the things we love most about our home. Kudos are definitely in order for our fantastic landscaping team. We made some major upgrades in 2015 and the crew takes wonderful care of the property. More upgrades still to come! Jetties is a great, family friendly beach which is conveniently located about a mile away. Positioned on the outskirts of town, the house, as you've mentioned, is a great jumping off point for exploring the rest of the island. From Madaket to Sconset, the island is about 14 miles wide. The south side of the island, where you'll find Cisco and Surfside beaches, is about 3 miles from the house. Even if you don't have a car or bicycles, you can see a lot of the island by taking advantage of the Nantucket Regional Transit Authority shuttle buses. We are so glad you enjoyed your time at our home and look forward to hosting you again! ~Jared

Lovely place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We have spent two summers vacation here and we have been so happy. We love working with the owners as they are more than accommodating and just really nice and honest people who want their guests to have a great time. We love the location and walk to town each morning for a coffee and muffin. It's also great for getting out of town and heading to the beaches as you don't get stuck in town traffic. We have nothing but positive things to say. Thank you Jared for another wondering summer vacation on Nantucket.

I was in Nantucket for a wedding and stayed at this beautiful home with friends. The location is perfect, really close to town, we walked everyday. The house was very clean when we arrived and felt right home the whole weekend. I highly recommend to anyone visiting Nantucket to stay in this house you wont regret it!
