Why The Owner chose Shelter Island Heights

Shelter Island is by far my favorite part of the Hamptons. I found this little gem of a house 6 years ago and have been meticulously renovating and upgrading it ever since. My favorite part is the expansive backyard, with its full fusion of colors in bloom all season, and its soft summer breezes. Its centerpiece is the heated gunite pool, graced by the gentle arc of a 100+ year old black cherry tree -- all viewable from the elevated deck. A long time renter, I pride myself on the details, and in anticipating your every needs -- ensuring the house is stocked accordingly -- so that you can relax and enjoy your stay without a care in the world.

Family friendly relaxation

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing introduction to Shelter Island! This home is in an ideal location --- easy drive to town, sunset beach (could walk!), local golf course, ice cream, grocery store and great seafood!

The owner, Susan, is beyond pleasurable to deal with. Extremely responsive and helpful.

Plenty of interior room for our family, but the outside space made our stay. Beautiful split level deck and stunning pool lead to an expansive fenced in back yard. Our dog and two young children loved every bit of it!

Great time in Shelter Island!

  • 5 of 5

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!

a lovely late summer retreat

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I and our two little dogs spent a week at Susan's home and it was just what we needed. The house is fully stocked, the backyard is massive (and closed in for the pups to run wild) and the location is close to the shops and restaurants and in walking distance to beautiful sunset beach where we enjoyed champagne while we watched the sun go down on several evenings. Easy ferry to either Greenport or Sag Harbor for day trips. The owner was very accommodating prior to our stay and in fact when we had a hot water issue (likely due to the house not being used for a couple weeks) she had it fixed the very next day. We really had a lovely time!

Owner's Response: Thanks Karen! I loved having you. That hot water situation was indeed a one time fluke situation, and I am glad I was able to resolve it within hours for you. You, husband and pups are welcome back any time. Please do visit again!

Perfect Holiday Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We spent nearly two weeks at the end of the summer at this lovely home. The pool, deck and backyard were amazing -- larger than we expected. The home itself is nicely done, with plenty of room for 6 of us. It's conveniently located near Sunset Beach (about a 10-15 walk) if you're into that, but we loved barbecuing in the backyard so much we barely made it down there.

We had a couple of questions during our stay and the owner responded immediately with all the info... we will definitely be back. Highly recommend staying here!

Great Family Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely weekend here. Because the weather was so nice, we spent most of our time outside. Most of our meals were enjoyed on the deck, but the house is actually located very close to shops and restaurants. Our kids really enjoyed the expansive yard and the pool. The house is also very comfortable with nice bathrooms and kitchen.

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from this property and it is a perfect getaway! All the amenities of home but with much, much more. The house is wonderfully decorated and has a warm, cozy feeling but everything electronic you need for a modern day experience. Great backyard with a pool and an outdoor shower I wish it had been warm enough to try! Very impressed with the large and fabulous deck. Had a

question during the stay and Susan, the owner, was very responsive.

This place is conveniently located near several great cafes and markets (we mostly

did our own cooking in the sit-in kitchen). Every day we took a walk to and

along the beach (the house is just a few blocks from Sunset Beach hotel)! We had

such a relaxing time we now say when we get city-stressed - 'oh, I wish I was

back on Shelter'. Enjoy!
