Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Thomas was a very easy going host and check-in was a breeze. The location of the home is a lovely and very short stroll from Main Street, which for me is an ideal location.

  • Our stay in Nantucket was great. Thomas was kind and easy going. The room had everything we needed for our stay .. Towels, extra blankets, blow dryer etc... The space is small and tidy and reminds you that you are in an island full of history and beautiful old structures. Location is close to Main Street with everything walking distance. We recommended a stay at Thomas's. A bonus is Thomas prepares a small early breakfast if you request it.

  • We felt welcomed from the first moment. Tom showed us the spaces we could consider "ours", including a garden table and chairs, the passage through the historic house up the winding stairs to the bedroom and bath. He went over the various points on his checklist and asked our preference for breakfast timing. He also gave us good advice on where to eat, which bike paths were new, and how to get to Downy-Flake for their wonderful donuts. He offered us juice, freshly-ground coffee and toast with jam every morning.

  • Tom was friendly and helpful. The room is quite comfortable. I was able to use the yard to relax. Highly recommend.

  • I had 2 days on Nantucket and wanted to see it all. With Tom's advice I did just that. If you are a single female and worried about staying in the home of a single man DON'T BE. Tom is as kind as the day is long. Perfect location to downtown. Would go back again for a longer period of time. Thanks Tom.....
