Delightful stay in Shelter Island

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Ed's house this summer around Labor Day weekend. It's a charming house with nice bedrooms and bathrooms that look just like the pictures. Almost every room has a beautiful view of the harbor. The grounds are nicely shaded by old walnut and maple trees with plenty of room for our young kids (3 and 5) to play in either the front or the back yard. Our older son didn't want to leave.

Although the weather was bad, we still had plenty of diversions. We saw a family of wild turkeys nearly every day patrolling the neighborhood. We also caught several fish off the dock and spotted crabs, birds, and even a sea turtle in the harbor. At many points, Ed checked in to make sure we were having a good stay. In advance of a bad storm, he checked in to make sure we would be prepared.

We had a great time and hope to be back soon. Thanks Ed!

Idyllic for Creative/Strtgic/Family Getaways of Entreprnrs, Politicos/Diplmts, Writers Seeking Prvc

  • 5 of 5

Loved this property so much that less than a month later, I was back again, spending overall nearly 2 weeks there all together, by myself, and finding new inspiration every minute. If you're an entrepreneur, celebrity, diplomat, politico, writer seeking to do some privacy-ensuring R&R, visionary work/thinking by yourself or with your close cadre, away from the nosy scene of the Hamptons, this is the island and this is the property.

Located right on the harbor, with its own dock put in by Ed just a few years ago, and some of the best views on the Eastern seaboard, it provides the perfect, absolutely perfect ambiance for creative/strategic/visionary work, be it summer on the veranda or in the living room by the fireplace, overlooking the harbor, boats floating around it, and $25mm mansions accross it. In the summer, the sunsets over the harbor are unbeatable and the plethora of birds dancing in the air and squirrels, chipmonks, and deer playing in your 2 acres of land between the house and the water, is just magical. Inside, Ed's wife did a superb job decorating - the house has a charming, slightly rustic (and hence even more charming) feel to it, with fully renovated bathrooms, and overall Hamptons' style decor that will suit even the pickiest. If you're looking for Aman Resorts, Mandarin Oriental or One & Only, this isn't it. If you're looking for the best alternative to a destination club's villa or a chalet, a lodge/chalet/cottage, this is a charmer at an incredibly affordable price with an owner that truly cares for the property and for its guests (Ed, hope you won't hike up the price on me in the future after this comment :)).

The property has absolutely everything you will need - you just need to show up with your groceries and a cook (if you want one). I came by myself, did not have a car (Hampton Jitney (North Fork to Greenport) from Manhattan>8min ferry ride from there to Shelter Island >short 5min taxi ride and in 2hrs, you're door-to-door); and didn't get out of the property AT ALL, except every morning for jogs around the island - some of the best I've had globally - truly phenomenal views, great air, and very friendly fellow joggers from all walks of life, if you decide to strike up a conversation.

Ed, thanks for your incredible hospitality. Look forward to coming back!

Best Place on Shelter Island

  • 5 of 5

We rented Ed's place for 5 days in June 2016. We are a family of 5, 3 young kids, ages 9, 7 and 3, and we had guests for two nights. The house is perfect, the waterfront location has an amazingly breathtaking view. You can sit outdoors by the grill, stare at the water, eat outdoors staring at the water, basically do everything while taking in the view. The owners were fantastic, responsive to everything we needed and they made a lot of great recommendations for where to eat, what to do, what beaches to try etc. This is a great place to escape the bustle of the city with family and friends and to really and truly relax!

family fun

  • 5 of 5

I booked this waterfront property for my family and my girlfriends family to spend time together and relax we all loved the house and property , from the quaint fully restored 200 year old farm style house to the spacious 2 acre property. I brought my 21 FT center console fishing boat and docked it at the floating dock at the end of our own 100 FT pier dock to fish the extensive fishing grounds surrounding the island. we also took friends and family out tubing and to private beaches to explore what a blast thanks for the memories

Best view on Shelter Island

  • 5 of 5

Just back from two glorious weeks. The house sits on a beautiful piece of property with a spectacular view. Perfect spot to drop your paddleboard or kayak and just spend the day on the Sound. There was no reason to leave. Everything we needed was there for us to have a beautiful vacation. The owners were super to work with. Thanks - until next year!

Home on the Harbor

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a long weekend during the 2015 Memorial Day Holiday. The House is so charming with unmatched views overlooking Coecles Harbor across a beautiful lawn with the perfect number of old-growth shade trees. We had everything we could ask for to satisfy the needs of our family which ranged from 3 children under the age of 5 up to the In-Laws enjoying quality time with the grandchildren! Everyone remarked all weekend long how peaceful and tranquil the views and home were to experience.

Truthfully, we barely got started exploring and experiencing all that this property has to offer before we had to return to reality. Looking forward to the chance we can visit again! The owners are incredibly helpful and very accommodating.
