About Gary Sher

I am a physician, who has spent 25 years vacationing on Shelter Island, together with my wife and three children. The Island has been a place of beauty and relaxation for my whole family.

Gary Sher purchased this house in 2011

Why Gary Sher chose Hamptons

This home is overlooking the best beach and view on Shelter Island. The house is new modern and serene, with a great deck overlooking the garden and the ocean. It has every amenity for a restful vacation away from the big city!

What makes this house unique

You are on your own beach!

Great cycling, walks and restaurants nearby.

Your own tranquility, with a short hop to the busy Hamptons, and Hampton beaches.

Modern beach cottage in pristine condition - delivered as promised!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 adults spent 9 nights at this lovely beachfront property in July 2014. Trust these photos as they depict everything just as you'll find it. The clean modern lines and decor made for a fresh and uncluttered environment. The kitchen and laundry everything we might need; this is the best equipped rental we've ever encountered. The cottage is spacious, very clean and well-maintained. The large yard is great for playing games, and the private beach access has you on the best beach on Shelter Island in seconds. We really enjoyed the many creatures that visited our yard daily....deer, bunnies, chipmunks, squirrels, and tortoises. We snacked on native blackberries as we crossed the berm to the beach. The neighborhood is quiet and the locals we met on the beach were friendly. From my first phone contact with Gary, the owner, he was very responsive and helpful in describing the property, neighborhood, and the island amenities. He was committed to making our stay fun, easy and informed. We'd love to return and would rent from Gary again. Trust me, you'll love it here!

Excellent modern beach front house!

  • 5 of 5

I absolutely enjoyed my stay here during the summer of 2014. The house was in immaculate condition and has all the modern amenities you would expect from a vacation home; large wall mounted TV, central A/C, high-speed internet (wifi), a great deck for checking out the waterview. It even has a garbage disposal! The large backyard leads down to a private beach where you can lounge, or launch a paddleboard, kayak or sailboat. It's a short drive from the south ferry and centrally located to everything. The owners were great, very responsive and a joy to deal with. I encourage anyone interested to inquire about this property, I know I will look forward to my next stay here.

Wonderful experience at this fantastic property

  • 4 of 5

I rented this summer cottage for the summer of 2013. The photos and listing description are 100% accurate. Directly on Wades Beach and beautifully decorated- description and photos accurately show the property. The home is clean, maintained with the highest standards, and equipped like no other rental property I've seen. The owners have taken great steps to make this cottage feel like home and they've succeeded. I highly recommend this property for anyone looking for the a great beach location, fantastic owners, and worry-free, easy summer living.
