About Jamie Gries

I have been in the garment industry for 20 years in NYC. I purchased and remodeled this house over a three year period to turn it into my personal sanctuary. My slice of heaven. I have three children who have vacationed on Nantucket for the past 14 years. We truly love this island and this house.

Jamie Gries purchased this house in 2001

Why Jamie Gries chose Tom Nevers

Nantucket has been my very favorite travel destination for the past fifteen years. I love the beach, ocean, biking, kayaking, shopping, history, fine dining, and spending time with family and friends on Nantucket. It is the ideal spot to do all these things.

What makes this house unique

Peace and quiet. Beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Outdoor activities and dining on the property. Many friends have said they never had to leave the property. The house kept them entertained and happy. Most people chose to sunbathe, garden, enjoy outdoor activities, and dine/party right on the property.

Could have been better

  • 3 of 5

We were on Nantucket for a family reunion. The house was lovely and more than enough room for all of us. The hot tub did not work and we were told it would be fixed, which never happened. The care taker was rather rude when asked about different items we were unsure of and used foul language the day we checked out because we were unsure of the exit instructions. I tried calling the owner with no luck. My family may be from Nantucket, but not all of us live there and know the ins and outs of Nantucket society. The owner seems to accommodate those they choose to and not others. I will look for other accommodation's for the next family reunion.

Owner's Response: I knew we would have a different perspective when my neighbor texted me a picture of a sign that was erected at the end of my driveway that said "Kemick Family Reunion Here."!..........

Most beautiful relaxed vacation with ocean views

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to Nantucket, and this house and location surpassed all of our expectations. The way the house is oriented, allows for magnificent ocean breezes through the top floor of the house. We spent most of our time relaxing on the patio watching fog roll out in the morning, and playing Bocce in the yard. The location in Tom Nevers is a little out of the way ($35 cab ride from the ferry), but that is part of it's charm. As a guest you truly feel like you can relax and take a breather.

The owner has a few games / puzzles in the house, along with bikes to ride to the beach ( 1/2 mile away). I would recommend this house to anyone that wants to explore the island past downtown and experience what Nantucket is really all about.

Amazing home on Nantucket

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 and my parents stayed at this georgeous home for 3 weeks last summer. We were greeted with a bottle of wine and a lovely hand written note from the owner. This home has all the best to offer. Beautifully decorated, georgeous ocean views, an amazing garden, dishes for all types of entertaining, the best linens on the beds, plenty of space to be together and many quiet areas to curl up with a book. This vacation home feels like your own vacation home. We couldn't wait to return and have already booked for summer 2013!! My search is over for the perfect house to return to year after year!!

Beautiful house and setting for relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved our stay in this house with our 3 children under 5, my parents and a babysitter last 4th of July week. We had a wonderful experience -- the interior is beautifully decorated, the views are breathtaking and the house is roomy and afforded each of us enough space and privacy. The children loved playing in the yard and it was a quick trip to the beach or downtown. The owner was so nice and gave us excellent advice for our first trip to the island. It was such a relaxing vacation and we hope to return again this summer. We highly recommend this property!
