What makes this house unique

Relax on the deck with your coffee and muffins after taking a bike ride to Sconset. Then head out to swim or fish at any of the numerous private beaches only a few minutes drive away. Return to watch the sunset from the upstairs porch and enjoy a relaxed dinner outside on the patio. Life is good.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It was a privilege for our family to stay in this beautiful home recently! From the moment we spotted the brilliant purple/blue hydrangeas that welcome you in the circular driveway, we could tell this was going to be special. The owners have made sure that comfort is paramount. The house is spacious and immaculate with different areas of the landscaped outdoors offering privacy and tranquillity for all to spread out and relax. After a day of cycling to a few beaches, it was an absolute treat to come back and cool off in the outdoor shower and to prepare a meal in the gourmet kitchen equipped with everything you may need for a fancy dinner or a casual barbecue. We loved the different seating areas outdoors and my favorite was an almost hidden garden away from the house with it's own barbecue pit. The beautifully furnished bedrooms are so comfortable and bath and beach towels are plentiful. The owners have made it easy for one to just get on with having a great time because every detail has been covered. We cannot wait to go back!!

Best Family Get-Away in Nantucket

  • 5 of 5

My cousin and I have brought our families to Nantucket for the past 20 years, staying in a variety of homes in Sconset & Tom Nevers - this is our favorite by far! The house is spacious enough for two families with great spaces for gathering. The outdoor dining table comfortably seats 12 and we have many memories eating and laughing into the evening. The kitchen is very well equipped and makes it a joy to prepare meals. Our kids always ask to return to this house, we truly feel like it is our home-away from home! The owners are lovely and super responsive!

Idyllic Nantucket Getaway

  • 5 of 5

It's hard to imagine a more perfect family vacation.This was our second stay at this incredible, tranquil vacation home. The home and gardens are so lovely that we were tempted not to leave the house! It's hard to choose from among the many outdoor spaces to enjoy: the spectacular gardens; the lovely deck, the swing on the front porch. We enjoyed all amenities from the tasteful decoration, to the gourmet kitchen to the outdoor shower, dining on the deck with music, an outdoor fire, and the separate apartment. The owners have thought of everything, and were available to answer any questions quickly. The location is perfect for biking, running, and walking and we enjoyed the proximity of Sconset - and the practically private beach at Tom Nevers close by. We hope to continue this family tradition, as this is truly such a perfect home for an extended family vacation! Thank you!

Family Vacation - multiple families

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this home and had a lovely time. There was plenty of room for everyone and the layout provided great space for all to spread out and enjoy. Great kitchen, amazing deck (right off the kitchen), and bedrooms and baths all very nice. The owner was incredibly nice leading up to our stay - quick to answer any questions we had and gave great recommendations... which made staying here all the more enjoyable. A great way to end our summer....

Location very convenient - great food a few minutes away at Lola Burger and The Sea Grille.

The only negative was having to leave!

Tom Nevers Vacation with friebds

  • 5 of 5

We had the most unbelievable and memorable stay at this beautiful property! The owners were fantastic and caring and had the property immaculate upon check in. I felt like I was renting a family home without all the clutter. There is absolutely nothing I could have hoped for more than all this beautiful home had to offer. The setting and landscape was serene and green and maintained that made it that much more wonderful. Thank you thank you! We will be back:)

Great location, beautiful home and gardens, very comfortable and private

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in several homes over the past ten years, and I highly recommend this home. The pictures on the site are great, but the home and the gardens will exceed your expectations. It is taken care of very well, and features a great location since it is very close to Milestone Road in Tom Nevers, which allows you to get everywhere quickly. Yet, you would never know that you are a few blocks from Milestone Road given the privacy and the serenity at this home.

This is a very good property for families. The rooms are comfortable, the kitchen is large, and there are several areas for families to enjoy. There is a secret shade garden with a fire pit, a large deck with a grill and plenty of other garden space (the kids enjoyed Wiffleball contests on the lawn). I especially enjoyed the library, which was a perfect place to unwind and enjoy a drink, replete with dark wood and comfortable chairs (and a TV). The rest of the house is bright and sunny, in the usual Nantucket style. In addition, the property features a very comfortable guesthouse apartment.

We stayed at this property in late June, and since we like to explore the entire island, the location is perfect. There are private beaches down Tom Nevers Road, and plenty of places to go for a nice drive (we rented a jeep and enjoyed the trail off Milestone Road and others).

In short, as a frequent traveler to the island who has stayed in several homes, I highly recommend this vacation rental. You will not be disappointed!
