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!!

Feels like coming home

  • 5 of 5

This was our 4th year staying here and we absolutely love this home! Sharing the house with two families can have its challenges, but this home provides ample room and great places to gather. We especially loved coming home from the beach, using the outdoor shower and gathering on the deck with a cocktail to reflect on our amazing days in Nantucket!

Peaceful Sanctuary, Gorgeous House & Gardens

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this house! Sharon was the best host imaginable. She provided us with a lot of detailed information about her family's favorite places to go on Nantucket. She communicated with us to be sure that we had everything we needed and were comfortable. She even left us a welcome basket of delicious foods produced on Nantucket. The house is stunning, with beautiful finishes, artwork, and decorations. Every possible thing has been provided to make the guests feel at home. The gardens are fabulous, and we felt as if we were in our own private oasis at the house. We look forward to returning to this beautiful house!

Best beach vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

This Nantucket home has everything you could ever need to make a week's stay on the Island the best vacation ever!! Every detail has been thought of--beach chairs, umbrellas, plenty of beach towels, coolers, drink thermoses--you don't need to bring a thing!! The home is immaculate and prime for large groups to gather. We were two families totaling 7 and enjoyed cooking meals in the well-stocked kitchen, eating outside on the deck, enjoying our outdoor morning coffee...we didn't have enough time to enjoy the various sitting areas around the property and all the beautiful gardens!! The beds were so comfy, bathrooms wonderfully appointed--all the comforts of home were provided. Working with this owner was a complete joy--they couldn't have been more accommodating! This beautifully decorated, privately sited, well-equipped home a short drive to Tom Nevers beach (where we saw whales and seals every day!!) is a must if you are planning a trip to Nantucket!!

Our vacation rental in beautiful Tom Nevers far exceeded our expectations. The gardens were spectacular and so enjoyed by our party ranging in age from 7 to 78! One of our favorite memories was a night-time s'mores roast at the fire pit in the "Secret Garden!" The owners have done an amazing job with every exquisite detail and amenity! Imagine 3 sets of washer and dryers to accommodate all those beach towels! We can't wait for next year!

Gorgeous home and grounds on Nantucket near Tom Nevers Beach

  • 5 of 5

Our family with four young grandsons had a wonderful time at this lovely home with the most enchanting gardens surrounding the house and guest house over the garage. The layout and furnishings were so comfortable and top-of- the- line; the artwork displayed on the walls was fascinating; and the gardens provided many hours of peaceful relaxation. The location couldn't be better and the house is very privately situated on a side road.

Gorgeous, Private Nantucket Estate

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I returned to this fabulous home for another vacation with four other couples. This home has become a favorite vacation spot for our group. The house itself is impeccably decorated and furnished, and the chef's kitchen is the focal area for our foodie friends. There are several outdoor "rooms" where we enjoy total privacy and gorgeous landscaping.

The owners have thought of every convenience for their guests, and clearly take pride in offering a superb vacation experience to all fortunate enough to stay there. Can't wait to return next year!
