Recent Shelter Island reviews

  • Delightful stay in Shelter Island

    "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!"

  • Charm, comfort, scenic beauty, and hospitality

    "I echo all the good things that the other reviewers have said about Lynne and the house, and add the following: Many thanks to Lynne for providing a list of what was in the kitchen before we arrived so that we could plan accordingly. I really wish other homeowners would follow this model of hospitality. It's so sane... To other guests: I recommend that you set up a separate receptacle each for paper, cardboard, plastic, and metal, and just separate as you go during your stay. If you have a dog, save one of the yellow shelter island garbage bags to collect your poop bags in. It will all make your life much easier with the tricky rules that the island has for trash. The layout of the house is good for together-time and alone-time. There's a door between the living room and the dining area, so chatters can sit in the dining room and chat without disturbing tv watchers in the living room (and vice versa). The kitchen has a bar/counter separating it from the dining room and another doorway off to the front entry and living room. If you have a dog or toddlers that benefit from a gate or two, this first floor layout is perfect for you. The study on the first floor has a trundle bed and its own doors out to the deck. There are two bedrooms upstairs as well, so introverts can easily escape to solitude. The deck is also well-designed for gating off. Another aspect of the house worth mentioning is the assortment of books on the shelves. Norton anthologies, John LeCarre novels, Sherlock Holmes, social commentaries, histories, and more. If you're a reader and you forgot your kindle, this house probably has something for you to curl up with and read (or re-read). We visited off-season never had to wait more than 5 minutes for a ferry (bring cash and take advantage of the same-day roundtrip tickets). A lot of the restaurants on Shelter Island and also in Greenport were closed, so our choices were limited. What was available is pricey, but good. Good burgers at the Shelter Island House Tavern for a reasonable price. Lunch at Stars Cafe, and dinner at the Red Maple. I also recommend taking a drive around the whole island to see the scenery and the gorgeous houses. Frontline your dog before coming. Tick warnings everywhere. Many many thanks to Lynne for being so gracious, communicative, and helpful. I hope we can return sometime. This is a wonderful house on a beautiful island."

  • Inspiring and beautiful

    "I am a professor at NYU and took my research group here for a five-day writing retreat. We were a group of 9 to 11 people (at various times). We could not have chosen a better place. Bob and Sylvie's house was quiet, clean, stylish, and right by the water. It had lots of light, lots of space, couches and nooks for everyone to work, and a well-equipped kitchen. The art around the house was fascinating and orders of magnitude better than the average VRBO. Bob and Sylvie responded promptly when we couldn't figure out how to use the sink garbage disposal; a handyman came over and helped us, although in the end it turned out that we had ourselves misplaced a part. Very strongly recommended!!"

  • Great time in Shelter Island!

    "My wife and I stayed at Susan's house with some friends while attending a wedding in Shelter Island. We enjoyed the house, which was conveniently located for enjoying the island. The house and property are clean, well maintained, comfortable and as advertised. Susan is a great host and was very helpful and accommodating in setting up the visit and provide recommendations and advice for our stay. Would definitely stay here again. Thanks!"
