About Steve Friedman
We grew up in White Plains, New York and Toledo, Ohio respectively but we have lived in the mountains of Colorado and Utah since the 70's. We always searched for the perfect ocean getaway and we found it on Nantucket, Brant Point in particular. Both of our sons are skiers and surfers so our family has the best of both worlds here in Utah and Nantucket. I taught them to ski and they taught me to surf. We also love to fish, ride bikes, and paddle board and do our best to take advantage of every inch of Nantucket island.
Steve Friedman purchased this House in 2005
Why Steve Friedman chose Nantucket Town
Our first vacation on Nantucket was in 1984 when our sons were just 1 and 4. Until we purchased our first home on Nantucket in 1996 we rented different homes from nearly one end of the island to the other. But we always gravitated back to Brant Point. You just cannot find a better location for a vacation on Nantucket for the convenience of being able to walk to shops, restaurants, beaches and the ferry, not to mention the 'Juice Bar' for that homemade ice cream. When we sold that first home we owned on the island in 2005 we bought our new home just 5 houses down the street. We just could not bring ourselves to leave the island or Brant Point.
What makes this House unique
Location, location location. This is what makes our home truly unique. There really isn't a better location for a Nantucket island vacation. It's close to downtown, close to Jetties beach yet it still feels quiet and quaint. We also love the layout of the upside down home, especially the large social space on the 2nd level. It brings our family together when everyone wants to be social and allows everyone to have their privacy on the first level.

Beautiful home, amazing location
We absolutely loved this house! It was clean and so close to everything in town! The owner was extremely helpful and answered right away to any questions we had! I would strongly recommend this house to anyone.
The house was clean, the owner was very easy to contact, access was super easy. Great location. Walk to town, bike ride to beaches. Loved the upside down layout for vacation, bright morning and pretty skies at night.
Apres Ski was great for my extended family vacation. Plenty of space and privacy for everyone. Perfect backyard for kids to run around and easy access to the beach and town. Well stocked house and Steve was very communicative and friendly.
Location of house was perfect in terms of location - easy access to both town and the beach as well great house for having house guests with plenty of space for everyone!
My son was getting married the weekend we rented the house near Brant Point. Where do I begin to express appreciation for our overall experience having this beautiful home available to us. Steven thank you so much for sharing your incredible home. The upside down layout really a treat. To walk up the stairs in the morning and have the sun shining in, birds singing from the top of the trees that were at eye level was such a delight. The location alone was perfect for all our wedding events. We walked to Brant Point Lighthouse every morning and then into town for coffee.
I could go on and on about the loveliness of this home and all that it provided our family of eight that stayed there. I will end this review by saying this home is THE home to rent to capture the beauty of Nantucket.

Awesome property will be back
We are located in Brant Point, considered to be one of the best locations for your vacation on Nantucket Island. Our location is great for a true family beach vacation you will never forget. The Brant Point area is close to all the downtown amenities from the Steam Authority and Hyline Ferry terminals, beaches, shops, bars and restaurants, grocery stores, liquor stores, and museums.
For an ideal day at the beach, walk to Jetties where they have a playground, life guards on duty, restrooms, changing rooms, and a full restaurant bar called Sandbar. This is the most family friendly beach on the island close to your doorstep. We recommend catching the sunset and packing a picnic at Steps beach, or oysters at the Sandbar (their calamari is also worth trying)!
For those with a sweet tooth, Nantucket Island’s best ice cream is 2 blocks away at The Juice Bar. Get the waffle cone, it’s worth it. They do special flavors daily so be on the lookout for something truly unique. And for those who are dairy free, not to worry, they have coconut based ice cream flavors daily.
For those who like to be in the scene with waterfront dining, Cru is one of the best places to be. The lobster roll is unbeatable as is the people watching. If you want to have a cocktail on the sand try the Galley restaurant just down the street.
For a more family dining environment try Brotherhood of Thieves. They have an excellent atmosphere, great food and drink so there’s something for everyone.
Half a block away is the Island’s premier wine emporium called Epernay. The owners know their vintage and share their love for wine with frequent wine tastings, specials, and anything you could ask for in the realm of beverages.
We have plenty of parking but a car is not needed while vacationing in Brand Point. If you want to travel around Nantucket island the bike baths are well maintained and there are a number of bike rental shops near our home. Cook's is just down the street. Once you wash the sand a salt off in the outdoor shower at the end of the day, all evening festivities are a short walk away from sunset to restaurants.
If you are using a car we recommend leaving it at our home at night. You can easily walk to Jetties beach or Steps beach for the sunset, or downtown for food, drinks, shopping and all evening activities.
