Tom Nevers House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms 2.5 bathrooms, sleeps 6, central air conditioning

Our best secret... Come to Nantucket in the autumn off-season when it's quieter and still beautiful! Our rates are discounted too.

Enjoy beautiful ocean sunrise and sunset views from this lovely 3 bedroom, 2-story family home complete with central air conditioning, 4 decks and an outdoor shower.

This serene location sits on a quiet road, just 5 houses from Tom Nevers Beach. Here you can get away from it all while you are still close enough (less than 7 miles) to Nantucket Town. In town you can enjoy the historic feel and charm of cobble-stoned Main Street with its numerous shops and restaurants.

The 3 bedrooms are located on the ground floor, leaving a completely open, spacious second floor with 14-foot ceilings and open kitchen, dining, and living areas. This unique living room offers new French doors on the east and west corners of the room leading to outside decks where you can sit and enjoy the ocean views during sunrise and sunset. A half bath is located off the pantry on the second floor.

The master bedroom has a queen bed, walk in closet, and access to a private deck via new French doors. Adjoining master bathroom has an 8-foot marble shower with 3 shower heads. The second bedroom also has a queen bed and the third bedroom has 2 twin beds and access to its own private deck. Second full bathroom is next to bedrooms.

Weekly rentals are available. Check calendar below for current availability. All linens, bath and beach towels, beach chairs and umbrellas, and new gas barbecue grill are provided for your use during your stay. Wi-Fi high-speed broadband internet access and Xfinity Comcast cable HDTV with Google Chromecast available. Off street driveway parking.

Beautiful Home in Tom Nevers!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this home for 9 nights and truly enjoyed our stay. The owner was a pleasure to deal with from the start which makes the total experince that much nicer! The layout was great, the yard was beautiful, we really loved the second floor decks with ocean views!! The master shower was amazing , the second bathroom was also very nice. Tom Nevers beach is like a private one, so nice and quiet and the bike paths are so accessible from this location which was great! Great place to vacation in Nantucket away from the hustle and bustle!

This home has a certain "Je ne sais quoi".

  • 5 of 5

Nestled in a beach neighborhood with amazing views and yet a quick ride into town, the location offers the best of both worlds. The house is fresh and clean. The owners have thought of everything to make your stay comfortable. I sensed they really want you to enjoy your stay and fall in love with the island (if you have not~ already). The home is prettier than the photos. The grounds are well kept and often sprinkled with adorable rabbits. There is something about this home and the location that makes for a true Nantucket vacation.

Fantastic Holiday Location on Nantucket

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property (HomeAway No.: 964942) from August 8 to 18, 2014 with a party of six. In preparation of our stay the owner of the property was very forthcoming and always extremely pleasant to deal with and helpful.

The house is located in the quiet Tom Nevers area of Nantucket. The (unguarded) beautiful beach is 5 min. walking distance from the house. Despite being there during peak season it was quiet and felt almost private.

The House was very well maintained and clean. All technical amenities (dish washer, washing machine, dryer, kitchen, bathrooms, WiFi etc.) were in proper state and worked perfectly. We very much liked the "upside down" architecture with the spacious, very nicely decorated main living area and open kitchen on the second floor (above tree level) with two terraces and great views over the island (sea view in the distance) and always one terrace in the sun.

For shopping and most restaurants one needs to drive (10 min.) to the town of Nantucket. Popular guarded beaches, such as Cisco Beach or Surfside, are a 10 to 15 min. drive away. Picturesque Siasconset is in 5 min. drive distance.

We truely enjoyed our time at this house (and love Nantucket!) 100%. We would love to come again and definitely recommend the house to friends

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words! With the great views and quiet location, we always considered our area of Nantucket the best kept secret on the island.

Paradise on Tom Nevers

  • 5 of 5

Summer of 2012 will be our fourth year renting this wonderful house. My husband, daughter and I have been going to Nantucket for two weeks every summer for many, many years. We love the Tom Nevers area and now that we have discovered this perfect house, we cannot imagine renting anything else. Our daughter is now married (her wedding was on Nantucket, of course!) and we look forward to many more vacations with our expanded family in this special house. The house is lovely and very well decorated- spacious and open with fabulous views in every direction but still manages to be cozy and inviting-plenty of comfortable chairs and couches to curl up or snooze on. We love the two upper decks-our " breakfast, deck (east) and our "drinks before dinner" deck (west) as well as the lush private yard. My husband is the cook in our family and he loves the fully equipped kitchen and the gas grill on one of the decks- and the availability of so much fresh seafood on island and the choice of fruits and vegetables (and much more!) at Bartlett's Farm. And, of course, Nantucket has so many wonderful restaurants,so eating out is always a pleasure, as is exploring the unique shops in town. From the house you can bike to Sconset or into town (with ice cream at the Juice Bar as a reward) or take a long ride along the miles of bike baths. We walk or bike to Tom Nevers beach-never crowded, it feels like your own private beach. Nantucket is a special place where you can do as much or as little as you like, and having this house as home base is the icing on the cake.
