About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

Unassuming Sophistication! Sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean from second floor master bedroom deck. Situated only 300 yards from private beach stairs leading to one of the quietest beaches on the island. Indulge in a bit of serenity while relaxing in the quaint English style courtyard. Enjoy the gentle, soothing sound of the ocean while you relax in this ''Quintessential'' Nantucket Beach Cottage.

Short gentle walk to one of the most SECLUDED, CLEAN, PRIVATE salt water beaches on the island.

This house is far enough from the crowds in Nantucket, yet closer to the supermarket and other services than most other outlying areas on the island. Bike paths will take you either to the picturesque village of Sconset or to the more than 80 miles of Nantucket beaches. The Tom Nevers area of the island features dense natural foliage, a surrounding ring of conservation land, expansive views and miles of secluded beaches. The higher elevation and gentle rises offer cooler breezes than the rest of the island.

For a truly memorable experience, take your four-wheel drive out to secluded Great Point to fish and see the best sunrise on the island!

Enjoy the numerous shops and restaurants, museums, library, art galleries as well as live theater and entertainment. You might even try a historic stroll or even a ghost walk at night! In town, at the wharves, you can sign up for fishing trips or join available bus, taxi or walking tours of the island.

Deck/porch/patio, BBQ-grill, outdoor shower, washer & dryer, dishwasher, microwave, coffeemaker, linens included, cable TV, VCR or DVD, high speed Internet, no pets, no smoking.

Why Frank Matarazzo chose Nantucket

After having visited the island for over 20 years as a renter, we realized that Tom Nevers offered the best of Nantucket. This house is far enough from the crowds in Nantucket, yet closer to the supermarket and other services than most other outlying areas on the island. Bike paths will take you either to the picturesque village of Sconset or to the more than 80 miles of Nantucket beaches. The Tom Nevers area of the island features dense natural foliage, a surrounding ring of conservation land, expansive views and miles of secluded beaches. The higher elevation and gentle rises offer cooler breezes than the rest of the island, with no mosquitos!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Frank,

I hope all is well.

I wanted to let you know that we had a great week in Nantucket. We loved Great Point and cruised there with a jeep; I have never seen so many seals in my life in their natural habitat; we had great ice cream in Sconset and Nantucket town, did some trail walks, saw the sunset in Madaket, went to Jetties and Steps beach and saw all three light houses. The remaining time we spent in our favorite place – the 'house beach'. 

Thank you for a great relaxing week – we will come back to Nantucket and bring our daughter along then.

I really appreciate all the hints and tips. Thank you again.

Best regards,

Like the song, lovelier the second time around

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year staying at the cottage. And it was even nicer this time. The cottage is clean, comfortable and really feels like "home away from home." The ocean is only a minute's walk away and we were blessed by visits from several seal friends this time while walking on the sand on Tom Nevers Beach. If you have any apprehension about renting a place you haven't seen firsthand, let me assure you, this cottage is wonderful and worry free and Frank couldn't have been more accommodating to our needs.

This property has everything It advertises!

My wife and I have been renting on Nantucket for years. We have an 11 year old boy and an 8 year old girl. We Love the beach and enjoy riding bikes. This house is in a quiet neighborhood and offers a short walk to a very private beach and its close to miles of great bike riding. In fact you are about 1.5 miles from Milestone road bike path, 4.5 miles from the little town of Sconset and 11 miles to the Lola Burger circle. Btw- there is a public WAVE bus line stop at the end of Tom Nevers road. (Look it up if you don't know how great this public service is)

The house is new and very clean. It's also very dry. It comes very well equipped with beach chairs, beach towels and two adult bikes. The kitchen is well stocked for all you need to cook inside and out. There is both a coffee maker and a Keurig. There is a nice bathroom and a good kids room with a trundle bed. Laundry is good. The outdoor shower is great and powerful. I never used the inside one. My kids say it was good. The upstairs bedroom is large and has plenty of room. The bed is very comfortable and comes with sheets and blanket. The only thing you need to know is the upstairs bedroom is the whole floor and has no door. The best part of the bedroom is the southern facing door that opens up to a great sitting porch with fantastic views.

The owner, Frank is also very nice to work with. He was always available and very quick to respond to any of our inquiries.

I think this is great spot, well stocked and worth your consideration. We had a great two weeks.

One side note- there is a similar house on the property. It is owned by the owner and he said he doesn't rent it nor was he using it. This insured our privacy. I would be sure to ask if the 2nd property is in use or not.

A Great Spot

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Nantucket for years and Tom Nevers is among our favorite parts of the island. It's quiet, while not being too far from the grocery store or town, and it has a beautiful and usually empty beach. Frank's cottage is peaceful, comfortable, and a short walk from the beach. Morning coffee or an evening cocktail on the balcony is just about as good as it gets. And Frank is probably the most responsive and hospitable property owner we have dealt with in all of our years coming to the island. Thanks very much, Frank.

Darling Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, daughters and I enjoyed our stay at this relaxing cottage in Tom Nevers. The serene surroundings were great for our morning walks and the private beach was so convenient! I especially liked the deck off the master bedroom. It was perfect for enjoying a quiet breakfast in the morning, reading a book in the afternoon and stargazing at night. We have been to Nantucket several times and would definitely come back to stay here again. Our heart truly belongs to this beautiful island!

Rest and Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

I've visited Nantucket many times and Tom Nevers truly has the best beach on the island. We especially loved no crowds, the long expanse of beach. Really beautiful. The water can be rough but that didn't keep us from swimming daily. Frank's small quiet cottage offered us all the basics for a lovely restful stay. Clean and comfortable with all the beach stuff you need. I'd stay here again. Loved the outdoor shower. Best to rent a car if you want quick access to town. Although we enjoyed the bikes and exercise. My only wish was more pantry space and cooking utensils/tools. We were there for a bit and I enjoy cooking. Frank - you need a decent set of knives!
