Perfect Getaway

An absolutely wonderful week! Christine and Bob are terrific hosts, the house is great - quiet, well-appointed, comfortable. I particularly loved the setting - lots of privacy and very relaxing. A ten-minute walk to the bus to town, great biking. And the fall weather was perfect all week - not quite sure if Christine and Bob had anything to do with that, but I wouldn't be surprised. This is nearly my 20th visit to Nantucket and this is my favorite place!

Oh, thank you so much for a thoughtful review. Very much appreciated! We are so happy to be able to offer the peace and quiet, safety and cleanliness all vacationers seek out for their well deserved vacation time. Our area known as Tom Nevers East is one of the island's best kept secrets. It has a neighborhood feel for your walking or biking around with quiet enjoyment of the outside space and abundant sky. We look forward to seeing you again.

Great stay at cute cottage in Tom Nevers

My husband and I stayed at Christine and Bob's cottage for about a week in late September/early October. It was wonderful. The cottage was extremely clean, comfortable, cozy, and conveniently located. We really liked the two levels and all the space it gave us. It was easy to get around to several parts on the island in our rental car and we loved how quiet it was versus staying in town. The cottage is about a 5 3-5 minute drive down to the beach and we spent many mornings and sunsets walking along, enjoying the views and seals.

Christine and Bob have thought of everything when it comes to ensuring their guests are comfortable - extra blankets, beach towels, coolers, chairs, coffee, tea, other kitchen items, etc. They also treated us to some fresh tomatoes, cucumbers, muffins, and cookies. Any time I thought, oh it would be great if they had XYZ, it was pretty much always provided. This made our trip extremely easy. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to couples or two couples looking for a relaxing place to stay.

We appreciate the wonderful remarks you gave detailing all that our cottage has to offer. The location of Tom Nevers East, the relaxed and quiet outdoor setting of the area, easy access to town, bike paths and beaches and our honest efforts to offer you a clean, comfortable "home away from home" during your vacation week. The garden was at a good point with an abundance of cukes and tomatoes and basil to share for a refreshing Island treat. (I wish we could grow bacon!!) We know that it takes a lot of planning, time and money to take a vacation and we are so happy to provide our fantastic cottage to enhance your Nantucket experience.show moreshow less

Perfect getaway

Thank you to the Collettis for the perfect Nantucket getaway for our honeymoon! We couldn't have asked for better or more attentive hosts. The house is absolutely beautiful, comfortable, clean and cozy and Christine made sure that every amenity we needed was available to us, right down to chilled beer glasses in the freezer, cranberry muffins for a snack, and fresh cucumbers from the garden!! I've been coming to the island for eighteen years and this was one of the best stays I've ever had. Christine made everything easy and stress free. We are so looking forward to coming back! show more show less

Thank you so much for your 5 star review. Wow, it really is a great honor to be considered one of the best places you've stayed at in almost 20 years! We know COVID19 derailed so many of your wedding plans and 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, riding out to Madaket, to see the sunset, walking the Sconset Bluff, biking the Moors, playing in the surf or just sitting at a quiet beach again and again and again. Nantucket's magic is only enhanced when LOVE is involved! We are excited for repeat guests...it feels good to share..show moreshow less

Great Stay in Tom Nevers

What a great trip to Nantucket. We stayed at the "Oh So Cute" Cottage for 10 nights in Sept 2020, and it was almost perfect. Christine and Bob were so accommodating to our needs after our original rental cancelled due to the current Covid situation. They even allowed us a few additional nights that we were going to stay in hotels!

The cottage was spotless upon arrival, and have everything we needed for a great trip - kitchen items, linens, towels, and the beach equipment we used as much as possible. The grill worked great for the few meals that we had at home. The neighborhood is beautiful and quiet, it was great for getting out and about on our rental bikes. It was also a perfect location to take a quick ride to Sconset - Don't miss the bluff walk! - but also perfect for a little longer ride towards Town.

Our party of 3 loved the cottage set-up, with a quiet area for reading (and some competitive card games!) downstairs, and a seating area for those that wanted to connect to reality via the TV. Beds and chairs were comfy, AC worked great to keep the humid ocean air outside. And Christine/Bob were great hosts. They gave us a great tour of the place when we arrived - after 8pm on a Weds! - and even left us some great muffins for our first few breakfasts. They were available whenever we needed, yet we always felt on our own the whole time. If you want a quiet, secluded, Nantucket vacation, while being close enough to reach everything quickly - Sconset, beaches, Cisco, town, etc, this is your place. We hope we can make it bACK next year. Thank you Christine and Bob!

Beautiful cottage stay in Nantucket

Christine and Bob's Nantucket cottage is a dream. It is equipped with everything (and more) that you could need. The beds are comfortable, and Christine and Bob have thought of everything - the chocolates were a particular treat. The cottage is in a relaxed, charming and peaceful setting, and is bright and spacious inside.

Christine and Bob are truly the most generous, kind and thoughtful hosts. We'd be incredibly excited to stay with them again in their charming cottage. Hugely grateful for their generosity during our time with them. show more show less

It's really satisfying to know that our guests always seem to be the perfect match for our cottage. Having conversations prior to booking about all our expectations is very important to us. When it is time to have your Nantucket R&R vacation you will know that 2 Sandpiper Way will always be "clean, quiet and oh so cute!"

Can't wait to rent again!!!

Christine's cottage was fantastic in every way. My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon and couldn't have been happier - we hope to make it a yearly tradition! Great location on the island (centrally located to many beaches, just a few minutes to quaint downtown Siasconset), privacy, and spectacularly clean. The furnishings are so classically Nantucket we fell in love with the house immediately! The interior and exterior of the home were spotless, and we were even welcomed by sweet gifts. Christine met us to go over the house, and was extremely responsive with any questions we had. The beds were wonderfully comfortable, fully stocked kitchen/grill (including basic groceries/spices, etc). We look forward to renting here again. show more show less

This has been our 3rd cottage stay for our Nantucket vacation. The cottage is the perfect choice ! The cottage is very clean, with a true Nantucket feel, it has all the amenities you may need to enjoy your stay. Plenty of room, and you will love the outdoor shower! A 4 min. drive to Tom Nevers Beach which is one of the best, and a short ride or bike ride to Sconset! We will definitely continue our tradition with such wonderful hosts Bob and Christine.

Another great 5 Star Review from two of our favorite summer people! Very much appreciated. We are so happy that this summer of Covid19 did not derail your vacation plans. Nantucket's great outdoors has so many out of the way spots to enjoy: beaches, walking and biking trails, conservation properties, little hideaways and of course our cozy, quiet , clean and air conditioned cottage. We hope you'll keep the island in mind for next year.

Wonderful, Quiet Cottage

My partner and I spent 20 nights in this cozy cottage and it was just perfect. Everything we needed for our extended Nantucket getaway was there - beach chairs, beach towels, coolers, outdoor grill, washer/dryer and a lovely outdoor shower! The cottage itself is very private with a sunny yard with lawn furniture, a propane grill, and even a clothesline (which we loved using). The kitchen had all the amenities we could have wanted (coffee maker, blender, lobster pot, etc).

The cottage is in the Tom Nevers area which we hadn't heard of, but it turned out to be a fantastic location. We loved the beaches closest to the cottage, but everything on the island is so close that we made regular trips to Sconset, Cisco and town. Rob & Christine were so sweet and so accommodating. They gave us maps, biking and hiking recommendations, beach tips and restaurant advice. They are true island locals so their recommendations were all on point!

This cottage is a hidden gem and a great value on an island where rentals are typically way out of our price range. We absolutely recommend this place and hope to return if they'll have us!

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 bike trails, beaches and walks that gives you a true sense of the hidden gems on the island. Night prowling around the neighborhood is a special treat when you can can take pleasure from the night sky, the nocturnal animals and the sheer sense of being in the natural world. Looking forward to seeing these two awesome vacationers next year!show moreshow less

Wonderfully private and clean house!

Well-equipped, immaculate home for a private getaway in the Tom Nevers area of Nantucket. Hosts Christine and Bob greeted us with cookies, lots of information about Nantucket, and their warm hospitality. Great place for a couple's getaway!

We were very happy that you chose our cottage to have some R&R on Nantucket. It's great meeting the interesting people that make the effort to travel to the island and we are glad you could explore and enjoy the slightly quieter time of September. You were great guests!

Perfect Spot for Us

My brother and I have been coming to Nantucket for our annual fishing break for over 30 years. We've stayed at a number of places around the island, but Bob and Christine's cozy cottage has been our best spot so far. Its set up and equipped for ADULTS - couples or two fanatical fishing nuts like us.

Kitchen has everything real cooks will need, including food processor, coffee grinder and plates and things for eating at the beach. We never go to town or eat out, except our last night, so a properly equipped kitchen is very important to us. Christine gets an A in kitchen.

The cottage is extremely well designed and built from top to bottom, and Christine's attention to details of what to have on hand is second to none. It's quiet and very private and a nice area to sit outside to chill for cocktails and whatever. Its easy to keep clean even if you spend 8-10 hours at Great Point everyday, like we do, and return with lots of sand and beach debris. Great outdoor shower, beautiful garden with lots of home grown veggies they share.

And finally Christine has an incredibly complex and extensive music collection she has set up on an iPod player (never seen one of these before) that will only require you to have an advanced degree in how to use the player, but lacks nothing for amazing play lists to satisfy even two music snobs like me and my brother.

The only problem I have with giving this review is that now they will get discovered, we won't be able to get our favorite weeks, and they raise their prices. In which case, I take everything I just said back. We love Christine and Bob and will keep coming back for many years to come, as long as we can still fish when we are two really old farts.

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 30+ 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.''
