Enjoy the sunset each night and the night sky with a spectacular vantage point for star gazing. Opportunities to walk, jog, bike, kayak, canoe, bird watch, collect beach glass and more, just steps from your door.
If you get up early enough you have a different set of views to enjoy, as the watermen begin bringing back some of their days catch, and the water glistens as the sun begins to rise. Every window offers a different view, depending on the time of day. Even thunderstorms are a sight to behold, and you can do so safely in the screened in porch out front.
Huge yard that reaches all the way to the BAY, with a huge fire pit, benches and chairs to enjoy the view. You can play badminton, bocci, horseshoes, fly kites, or just sit by the bay, watching the sunset and the cruise ships pass by.

What Can You Expect At Hoopers Island Bayside Haven?
As we strive for the Bayside Haven to be a truly 'get away from it all' location, we do not provide internet access nor cable TV. We do have plenty of DVDs and local & network TV stations. We have central AC, a ceiling fan, along with window shades (which you WILL need as we get a lot of wonderful sunshine all year long). Eight windows for catching the breezes, which are plentiful.
If you want to stay connected, you must bring your smart phone and/or patronize either the Hoopers Island General Store (formerly Island Pride) or Old Salty's to use their internet. But really...traveling out here encourages you to unplug for a little while, enjoy the scenery, the wildlife and the simplicity...the sunsets are amazing, you may notice others pulling out their chairs around 'sunset' time up and down the bay, as they all admire the wondrous views, the ships going by, and the fabulous birds flying by or swimming in the water . We often have our neighbors over and enjoy it together. Old Salty's is our local (within walking distance) seafood restaurant, where you can meet the locals and the folks that drive from all parts of the Easter Shore to eat here.
We have crisp cool 400 count 100% Cotton linens, organic and/or made in the USA when we can find them. We use steam to clean soft surfaces (pillows, mattresses, cushions, etc.) between guests, to keep down the allergens and just to offer you a comfortable stay. All bedding are encased in bug proof, allergen free materials. We are picky about where we stay, and apply these standards to our vacation rentals as well.
If we are in residence on the first floor, we offer Complimentary Happy Hours for our guests. (we have a separate entrance and separate outdoor deck, to stay out of your way)
You can rent kayaks/canoes or go on a charter fishing boat tour, or just a scenic tour, right on the island. The land is flat, perfect for biking or going for a long walk from bridge to bridge.
Rural area,TRASH REMOVAL is NOT provided, you may choose to bring it with you when you leave or pay the removal fee of $15. Your choice :)
We're still tweaking a few things here and there to make your stay as lovely as possible. Check back for updates!
*Holiday (Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day) and Marathon Event (Ironman/Eagleman etc.) Three Night Getaways are an additional $25 per stay.
