About Michael Reed
I'm a Boston-based real estate professional who has been going to Nantucket for over 30 years. My fiancé and I are both New England natives, and my family has summered on Nantucket since the 1940s. I searched for decades to find a special Nantucket property of my own, and knew instantly when I came here that this was it for me.
Michael Reed purchased this House in 2016
Why Michael Reed chose Tom Nevers
Whales Watch Estate has the BEST views I have seen on Nantucket. The property is elevated and right along the water, so not only do you get unobstructed views for miles along the coastline, but you can also see for miles out into the ocean. And with Tom Nevers pond on the other side, there is basically a water view out of every window. Most mornings you can see seals along the coast or up on the beach, and on rare occasion you can see whales out in the ocean (hence the name). The land is also teeming with wildlife - especially bunnies and deer - as Tom Nevers is tucked away from the busier areas of the island. The best part of Whales Watch in my opinion is that half of the acreage is a private beach. So while the lawn offers ample room to host a large party, it doesn't feel like an event space. You can walk down the steps at any time to the sand and say hello to the seals. I know this sounds cheesy but this land has a really magical feel to it.
What makes this House unique
Direct access to owner and his fiancé who have combined island connections going back over 50 years - ensuring you the best service and experience during your stay! We stay here often as well and have renovated to our liking the last few years so you can trust that everything is top-notch.
