Amazingly charming beach house
The pictures on VRBO do not do justice to this house which is charming, very tastefully furnished, spacious, warm, perfectly located, entertaining and has the perfect access and view to water.
The view from the house is incredible. Most of the room overlook the water and you can hear the waves, caribbean style from the master bedroom. The house is also looking out west which makes for fantastic sunsets (better than at the nearby hotel sunset beach).
There is a private beach down the stairs which makes it feel that you are in a private island. It is a real natural sandy beach and again, make it look like the caribbean. The yard is also spacious and a lot of fun for the children to roam around, again with a full gorgeous view wherever you look... We could not get enough of it! On July 4th we got to see no less than 3 fire works on the north fork without moving from the hammock!
The house in itself is very well furnished and has a well stocked kitchen. It doesn't feel cold that so many rentals but it also doesn't feel like it is someone else home - so we really felt it was our own home very quickly. The bedrooms were very nicely furnished. There are 2 master bedrooms, 1 children room with bunkbeds and one large room downstairs which is good for a family. But note that the house can't be shared by more than 3 couples - with 3 couples and kids it is very comfortable.
The location within Shelter Island is great - in a very peaceful strip close to the few nice restaurants, harbor and markets of the island. The owner was very easy to work with, he would respond to any question in a matter of minutes and always very kindly.
Best spot on Shelter Island!
What a great spot for our family! This house was perfect for everyone (ranging in ages from 2yr-65yr!). It's close to town, right on the water and has everything a family could need for a cozy get away. We were thrilled with the versatility of the layout and the owner made everything super easy for us. We highly recommend it!
We rented the house for one week at the end of August and had a wonderful experience. The house is well maintained, perfectly situated on the water and very comfortable. I definitely plan to return in the near future. The owner stays nearby and was extremely helpful and responsive throughout the whole process. The sunsets are amazing from the terrace. The house is very thoughtfully designed.
Amazing Vacation Spot
The house is beautiful and immaculately maintained. The deck overlooks a grassy backyard with steps down to a beach with a dock. One bedroom has a screened in porch that also looks out at the water. There is a den with huge sky-lights, large windows, and sliding glass doors that still managed to be cool! There is no need to leave the house, but Shelter Island has a lot of fun things to do: pretty beaches, fishing, mini-golf, and some nice restaurants. I can't wait to go back.
