Check-in time other than precisely at 2:00 p.m. must be arranged prior to arrival. If not, the guest may find himself locked out until the owner returns. Guests enter and exit through the garden door (not the front door) at the rear of the home which is accessed through the driveway gate. Quiet must be maintained after 10:00 pm because of the location of the home in a residential neighborhood. Smoking is not permitted except in the garden.
Beach towels are available by request. Bathroom towels must remain in the room. Checkout time is strict, but luggage may be left in the shed after 10:00 a.m. should a guest wish to remain on the Island for the day. No guests of guests are allowed anywhere on the property.
Thomas is an excellent host. It's clear why he has so many positive reviews. He's warm, welcoming and very hospitable. We loved our room, and the location couldn't be beat for The Christmas Stroll. He even gave us a ride to the ferry on a cold and windy morning when most of the ferries had already cancelled. Thanks for such a great experience!
Thomas was a very gracious host; very attentive, and very respectful. The room was fantastic and in a great location.
Thomas was an excellent host to me and my friend Jess! He is very informed about the island and helped us navigate it with ease. He also prepared a lovely breakfast for us each morning and chatted kindly with us at the start of each day. I would recommend his accommodations to anyone looking for a great escape. We hope to return.
Thomas is a wonderful host! He made us feel most welcome and had the room in impeccable shape when we arrived. The house is charming, and staying there felt like a step back in time. Our room was beautifully decorated, with a great bathroom en suite.
The location of Thomas' house is superb. We were able to walk into town and to different restaurants, shops and bars, as well as a Saturday farmer's market. The walk from the ferry is easy to navigate and very close. It allowed us to walk through the town center and get our bearings.
I must add that Thomas makes excellent coffee! It was lovely to sit in his kitchen in the morning and chat with Thomas and 2 other kind guests that were staying in another room.
Thomas was a wonderful, welcoming, kind and hospitable host; making our stay on Nantucket even more lovely then it already was! The room was spacious and clean with a private bath and air conditioning. Thomas' home is on a gorgeous street, just a few blocks away from Main Street and downtown Nantucket. He offered coffee and breakfast every morning. He even offered to take us to the airport for half the price it would have been to take a taxi! I would love to stay with Thomas again and absolutely recommend his property to anyone looking for a cozy place to stay on the island!
My husband and I just got back from our 3 day trip on Nantucket. It was an amazing experience. It was our first time using Airbnb and we are very pleased. Tom was very hospitable and made us feel right at home. The room is clean, the location is within 2 minutes walk to downtown and most major bike routes. Tom was super friendly, prepared a light breakfast for us each morning where we chatted briefly about each others travels and he gave some great local insight to the island. We hope to be back their soon and would recommend Tom's place to others.
Thanks Thomas! We had a great time. Extremely convenient location in the downtown area. Thomas was very friendly and is highly knowledgable about all things Nantucket. A great host - we'd return any time.
