About The Owner

I am a New York City based interior designer, wife and mother.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2015

Why The Owner chose Silver Beach

We love this house! It's a wonderful spot that is incredibly private, quiet and so relaxing. Having a meal on the covered deck is my favorite thing in the world.

Exactly as described, a piece of tranquility on a stunning island, the ultimate getaway - PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5

The property & House were even BETTER then we expected - the pictures don't even come close to doing this property justice.

It was in a stunning & quiet part of the island, right by a perfect, private little beach as well as a tranquil "pond-like" area where you can take a canoe out & experience something different. The pool is HUGE (about 60 feet long) The house had ALL the amenities one could wish for & more. Everything worked perfectly, awesome outdoor, hangout & barbecue area. There is even a Table tennis area that provided hours of fun.

Our Favorite part was the outdoor shower (Hot water included) We went with 3 generations of a family & it was perfect for each one, not a moan was heard from anyone the entire time, except when it came time to leave.

I could go on & on with how seriously happy we were with EVERYTHING! The Owner, Starrett, was ALWAYS just a text away to answer any questions we had & as she has a background in Interior Design, the aesthetics of the home were truly beautiful & very tasteful!

The only thing that nearly stopped us from giving this such a positive review was that we were hoping to keep this our little secret so it was available when we wanted it next!

Even our friends who have been coming to the island for years & are very informed said we had the Ultimate find! They were all jealous! Seriously, it's that good!

Starrett, thank you SO much for providing us with our own little oasis, a real home away from home, we will definitely be back!

Off season too

  • 5 of 5

Great hosts and lovely shelter island home. We used it in the off season and enjoyed the leafy woods surrounding the property. The house is bright and modern with wonderful quirky features that make it fun at the same time it is warm and cozy. Beautiful furnishings and comfortable beds.. A keeper.

Beautiful location and house but...

  • 3 of 5

A lovely house, beautiful location, amazing pool. One caution is that owner is somewhat finicky - kept half of the security for a broken lamp (totally fair) and to deep clean the sofa and chairs. Not the best for families with kids, who will inevitably be a bit messy. Kitchen also needs new appliances.

Owner's Response: Dear Hyo, I am sorry that you thought I was finicky for keeping actually just over a third of the deposit. I felt that it was fair as the deposit is to cover damages to my property, which you did indeed do. We have had many families with us now and have never had this problem (we also have a toddler). You broke a lamp and stained the entirety of the sofa and 5 out of 6 dining chairs with everything from pink juice to crusted sauce which did not come out after professional cleaning. We have since bought a new refrigerator, I am sorry it was not in advance of your stay. In addition to all of the above, you left rancid garbage all over our garage which has nothing to do with the deposit, however is very telling about the type of renter you are. I am surprised and disappointed that you would paint us as difficult in this situation considering the facts. Alas!

Awesome Shelter Island Retreat!!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had an awesome week away. We were 3 couples and it was the perfect size. Starrett, the homeowner was extremely responsive and ensured that everything was ready for our vacation.

This house has everything you need. The pool is HUGE and it is just a short distance from the private beach. We had long days by the beach, and came back each night and grilled out at the house. There is also an outdoor pingpong table area which was REALLY fun.

The light in the house is incredible. The house was tucked away, so you really felt like you were away from it all.

We look forward to coming back again, we had such a great time !! Thank you Starrett !!

Additional information about rental rates

cleaning fee $150
Refundable damage deposit $3,000

We do not cover the gas bill for heating the swimming pool and we recommend NOT using the pool heater due to the size of the pool. It is very expensive. We require a refundable security deposit to cover the cost of the gas, should one decide to use the pool heater, as well as any accidental/excessive damages.

  • 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
