Description

Description

Our 2 bedroom, 1 bath cottage is perfect for vacationers who want to enjoy Nantucket the way the locals do. The cottage has over 1400 sq. ft. of indoor living space with a relaxing outside grass yard and is a non-smoking and animal free home. When you read our consistently fantastic reviews and comments from past guests you can feel confident when booking our special spot.

This vacation rental is best suited for solo travelers, 1-2 people who are friends, a mature couple or two couples vacationing together. Due to the size, configuration, property location and safety concerns the cottage is not appropriate for children and those with mobility issues may find it challenging. There is one queen sized bed in each of the 2 bedrooms and each bedroom will accommodate 2 adults sleeping in the same queen-sized bed. The bathroom is on the 1st floor. We maintain a smoke free and animal free home for the comfort of all our guests and make no exceptions. This cottage and neighborhood is not a party area and we have been pleased with keeping a low-key clientele.

The house has ultra-quiet, wall mounted air conditioning units, two large size bedrooms with queen size beds, comfortable mattresses and sumptuous bedding, tiled kitchen countertops, exposed reclaimed beams, pine floors and brick accent wall. We provide free, fast and secure Wi-Fi in the cottage and reaching out to the yard. The first floor has an open layout with one bedroom and bathroom downstairs and comfortable seating in kitchen and living room. The upstairs has sitting room with a 40'' TV and the 2nd bedroom, all with a great mix of furnishings from Nantucket’s local shops. There is a full, dry, clean and bright 400 sq. ft. basement with a washer and dryer for vacationers to use.

We are year round, on-island owners, Bob and Christine and have custom built this cottage. We live in our separate home on the property and use the same driveway that passes the cottage. We will welcome you to Nantucket and provide friendly insight to island living especially if you are a first timer to Nantucket. Whether you would like to celebrate a honeymoon, a babymoon (that great romantic fling before the little one arrives), a special anniversary, or just have time away from it all as a couple, our location in Tom Nevers East will be perfect for you. You will quickly make your own Nantucket memories!

OTHER THINGS YOU'LL WANT TO KNOW ABOUT OUR LOCATION AND PROPERTY: There is private parking for two cars on site in a well-kept, safe neighborhood with eight miles of private paved roads. There are private, no fee tennis courts with pickleball within the neighborhood for your enjoyment. We also provide 4 beach chairs, 4 beach towels, cooler, beach umbrella, tennis rackets, a lobster pot and starter items such as toilet paper, soap, dish and laundry detergent, some paper goods, spices, etc. Our location has easy access to the Milestone Road (Sconset Road) Bike Path, NRTA's seasonal shuttle bus service, ''The Wave'' and beaches. Main Street Nantucket is 6 miles away, just a quick 11 minute drive by car and mid-island necessities such as the Stop & Shop grocery store, Nantucket Cottage Hospital, pharmacies and bank branches. Restaurants such as The Downey Flake, Sea Grille, Pi Pizza, Island Kitchen, Crosswinds at the Airport, Fusaro's and Kitty Murtagh’s are all only 5 miles and minutes away. The village of Sconset with all its own charm and its own zip code (02564) is less than 3 miles from our cottage.

Tom Nevers East is a well preserved island treasure: Delicious, pure well drinking water-no need for bottled water, abundant wildlife, natural beauty, non buggy side of the island, and our famous clear, night sky for stargazing. At our cottage you'll smell and feel the sweet green grass under your feet after taking your post beach rinse off in our enclosed outside shower. You’ll want to hang out in the yard, fire up the grill while sipping your beverage and listen to the pounding surf in the distance. Delight in the birds and bunnies and watch the unique light of the island as you enjoy the bounty from the gardens, farms and waters of Nantucket.

We hope you decide to ''Go Local'' and book with us in our vacation home for your relaxed island vacation and have yourself a full week of fun, food, sand, surf, shopping and sightseeing.

    Like coming HOME!

    This isn't my first time staying at this property ... it had been a few years ... but returning was like coming home!

    The cottage is impeccably kept, showing no signs of wear and tear since I was last here five years ago. The kitchen is well equipped and the beds super comfy. When I arrived both Christine and Bob were there to greet me and there were yummy treats inside :)

    A house is a house, but these owners make this rental a home. It's like staying down the laneway from family (family you like!) They are available if needed but leave you to vacation at your own pace. It's peaceful in Tom Nevers with the view of a beautiful garden right outside the kitchen window.

    I cannot recommend this property enough.

    A wonderful vacation house!

    We just returned from two very enjoyable weeks at this beautiful and well-appointed house. Having vacationed in Nantucket for many years, and having rented many places, this was the best place we have stayed. Christine and Rob are such considerate and thoughtful hosts and made our stay so enjoyable and look forward to going back. It was such a pleasure to stay in this house! We were impressed by how clean and well-maintained it is and all of the thoughtful details throughout. I should also mention this house is in an excellent location and the yard is beautiful. We give the hosts and this house our highest recommendation. show more show less

    We are so pleased that our beautiful property and cottage are appreciated by such wonderful couples during the seasons. It is very gratifying to know that our cottage oftentimes is considered "the best place we've ever stayed". S&C were certainly some of our 5 star guests this year. Thoroughly enjoyed getting to know you and I hope you'll be able to spend some time on Nantucket again next year.

    Amazing Stay

    We absolutely loved our honeymoon at Christine and Bob's Tom Nevers cottage. We could not have asked for a better place to stay. The property was beautiful, we thoroughly enjoyed sitting out on the lawn, under the trees, as the bunnies hopped along. Peaceful is an understatement. The inside of the house was immaculate, and even better than the pictures. The cottage is equipped with everything you need. We had one rainy day during our stay, and still had plenty of fun as there is a plethora of interesting books on the bookshelf, plus of course the tv/internet. We rented bikes as our main source of transportation, and had no problems navigating the island. Highly recommend going to Sconset, only a 15 minute bike ride! The nights we had reservations for dinner, we used Clyde's cab. To make the trip even better, Christine and Bob are some of the sweetest people we've ever had the privilege of meeting. I've stayed in a lot of different vacation rentals and this was by far my best experience, due to the hosts. If you're lucky enough to see an opening, book it while you can! 11/10 We can't wait to stay here again! Thank you Christine and Bob! show more show less

    Thank you so much for your 5 star review. Wow, it really is a great honor to be able to contribute in making this such an exciting and memorable trip. We were happy that you chose our place for your honeymoon retreat. The best part of choosing Nantucket as your honeymoon destination is that you'll be able to celebrate anniversary after anniversary by strolling down the cobblestone streets, biking to Sconset for the sunrise, riding out to Madaket to see the sunset, enjoying the vibrant downtown scene or just sitting at a quiet beach again and again and again. Nantucket is a magical place and it feels good to share be able to share our beautiful property in Tom Nevers East! We are excited for repeat guests.....So ya'll come back now!show moreshow less

    Impeccable and PERFECT!

    If we could give this property 10 stars, we would! It is nothing short of impeccable and was PERFECT in ALL ways for us. The location is exactly where we wanted to be and so private and beautiful! We feel we hit the jackpot with this property. The Hosts could not have been better. Very helpful and kind. The cottage was spotless and it had EVERYTHING you could want or need and nothing that you don't. Upon arrival there is a delicious plate of homemade baked goods, the refrigerator has condiments, spices, coffee, sugar, etc. There are maps, bus schedules, all kinds of books on Nantucket, etc.... We HIGHLY RECOMMEND this property and we will not hesitate to rent it again in the future. We have been coming to Nantucket for decades, and this property is our new "GO TO" property. You will not be disappointed if you rent this property. It's simply PHENOMENAL, as are the Hosts!! THANK YOU Christine and Bob for a VERY "well done" property and for your hospitality! #PlusQuamPerfectum #HiddenGem #Treasure show more show less

    A Glorious Week

    My fourth (fifth?) year in this perfect place - comfortable, secluded, incredibly relaxing. And I'm starting to think the fantastic weather - all week - comes with the rental. The best I can say is I keep coming back.

    The Perfect Place

    My third year at this delightful property - a great place to relax: quiet and comfortable, in a beautiful, secluded setting. Great place to bike or walk - and if you've never been to Nantucket, the biking is terrific - there are dedicated bike paths all over the island. And Christine and Robert Colletti are the perfect hosts. I'll be back next year!

    Thank you so much for your fantastic 5 star review. You really hit upon what makes our cottage so special and we could tell you were appreciative of the "little things" we try to do for our guests. We enjoy sharing the secret trails, beaches, restaurants and walks that gives you a true sense of the hidden gems on the island. Taking a morning walk in the safe and friendly neighborhood in Tom Nevers East is a special treat as you plan the rest of your day and lazing in the yard under a canopy of sassafras trees while reading or catching up on emails makes for a nice afternoon. Looking forward to seeing these two awesome vacationers another time!show moreshow less

    Great location vacation!

    We had a wonderful stay at the cottage during our vacation this summer! The clean and cozy cottage is set in a great location in Tom Nevers and was a nice bike ride away from Sconset! We started our mornings with rides to the Sconset Market for ice coffees or walks to the beach! After long beach days a nice outdoor shower and relaxing in the yard was the perfect way to wind down! Our hosts were very helpful and accommodating! Great place to stay!

    We especially love having this super nice, friendly and warm couple year after year. They do it right...enjoying every precious minute of Island Time. Biking, Beaching, Shopping, Eating in, Ordering takeout, taking selfies with famous authors, engaging with people they've met over the years. And then Relaxing & Unwinding at our comfortable cottage to get ready for another glorious day.

    We were young, newly-married and excited when we bought this property in 1979. There were only a handful of year-rounders and very few pieces had sold in this newly developing ''forever wild'' area on the east end of the island. So many people tried to talk us out of it, asking, ''Why are you buying in Tom Nevers? It is so far from Town. You'll hate it.'' Boy, are we glad we didn't listen to them! Wish we had the money back then to have bought a few more parcels!

    What is special about this property?
    Our property is special to us because of its location in Tom Nevers East. We are part of a homeowners association, that for 35 years, has taken great pride in the efforts made to maintain our six miles of private, surfaced roads that are well marked, easily accessed and in good condition, always with the safety and security of our friends and neighbors in mind.

    Our cottage is situated in a garden like setting, quiet and private with nature all around, yet only a few short miles to Nantucket Town and Sconset. The house is meticulously clean. The property setting is quite unique with our green grassy yard, shade provided by the sassafras trees and scrub oaks and parking for two cars. If you are here at the right time...some fresh tomatoes, cukes, and basil from our garden can be part of your dinner! We love it and are very proud of what we can offer a visitor to the island.


    What is special about your town?
    Nantucket, as an island, is precious to us. We respect and are grateful for its hearty, welcoming residents, as well as the visitors that help boost our economy. We hope that everyone does their part in protecting our open spaces and beaches and they leave the island with a better understanding of the need to help preserve the island's fragile and finite resources. We often think about and reflect upon what the writer/naturalist, Henry Beston wrote in 1928 in his book, The Outermost House: ''Nature is a part of our humanity, and without some awareness and experience of that divine mystery man ceases to be man.''
