Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in The Heights - Shelter Island Modern and Pool

3 bed, 2 bath, pool, hot tub, fireplace, close to beach

Sleeps 4 adults or 7-8 with kids.

Stay at our newly renovated, light filled home! In the warmer months lounge by the heated pool in the private tree-filled yard, relax in the hot tub that overflows into the pool, nap in the shade of the pool house, then rinse off in the outdoor shower. Read a book in the hammock or on the porch rocking chairs. BBQ on the big back deck and hang out by the outdoor fire pit to roast marshmallows in the evening. In the colder months, stay in the mid-century modern style living room, play board games and watch a movie on Netflix with a roaring fire in the stone fireplace or walk to the best sledding on the island. Cook in our well appointed kitchen and eat while watching the sunshine and stars through the dining room skylight. You will never have to leave the house for an incredibly relaxing vacation! Perfect for a family get away any time of year (we also have toys, pool toys, and a Wii with lots of games) or for a place just to get away from it all.

And when you want to get out to explore Shelter Island - we are less than 1 mile from beautiful Sunset Beach! Beach by day, have a cocktail at the bar to watch the sunset in the evening! Walking distance to the public golf course. Or take the Ferry to Greenport or Sag Harbor for an easy trip! Ride the bikes to town for lunch. From the house it's an easy walk to the ice cream shop and Ice Pond Park.

The house is situated on a very quiet, dead-end street with a beautiful, tree filled, and large yard. We have privacy for relaxing, but are close enough to Shelter Island Heights, the North Ferry to Greenport, the South Ferry to the Hamptons, and other conveniences to make this the perfect vacation location.

We'll provide you with maps and tips for exploring the island's beaches and restaurants. Before purchasing this house we rented on Shelter Island for many years, so our goal is to make your stay as perfect as we can.

IMPORTANT: **Must be 30 years or older to rent the house. Families encouraged. 4 adults maximum.

About Jennifer

We live busy lives so purchased this home on Shelter Island so we could spend more time on this amazing island with our family.

Jennifer purchased this house in 2015

Why Jennifer chose Shelter Island

After vacationing first in the North Fork and then on Shelter Island for the past 10 summers, we felt that the extra trip across the ferry really made Shelter Island feel even more special. Yet we are still close enough for many day trips to the North Fork and to the Hamptons. It's ideal.

What makes this house unique

Inside, the vaulted ceiling makes the small home feel surprisingly larger than it looks from the outside. And outside with the pool and hot tub in the summer, the beauty of the leaves in the fall, the flowers in the spring, and the snow in the winter - it's great year round.

Comfortable modern home with big front/backyard, heated pool/jacuzzi leaves little else to wish for

  • 5 of 5

We were 4 adults and 4 children staying in mid-June. We were pleasantly surprised to find the house was located at the end of a quiet street, with a large front yard with big mature trees, Adirondack chairs and a fire pit. The back yard and the pools are fenced in. All this made for a comfortable stay with children, that could roam pretty much as they wished. The house is not that pretty from the outside, but quite modern and tastefully decorated on the inside. The master bedroom as a very small bathroom with a shower. The nicer bathroom is shared in the hallway. The master bathroom is overlooking the pools and has sliding doors, but a small balcony with no direct access to the pools. Jumping the fence for the morning swim became standard. The deck has a large table and a barbecue, but some of the landscaping has grown so big that it was engulfing on the space and blocked the view to the pool. In order to be able to eat and keep an eye on the kids in the pool, we moved the table to the lawn. The wifi was lightning fast, good for those who needs to work. All in all, it was hard to find reasons to leave the house, and we only went beach combing twice in 8 days!

Perfect house with a fantastic pool & hot tub!

  • 5 of 5

The newly renovated house was clean and beautifully decorated with comfortable beds and a fully equipped kitchen. The grounds around the house were equally as beautiful with a large wooded front yard with fire pit and swing, and a large backyard with a gorgeous pool and hot tub. My family included 8 year old twins, a couple of 19 year olds, and 4 adults and there was something for everyone including books and toys for the smaller ones, and a great pool house where the teens could have their privacy. The house is walking distance to the local ice cream store, and very close to the ferry, Sunset Beach (Crescent Beach) and the supermarket. It was a perfect vacation for all. The owner was very helpful and responsive as well. We can't wait to go back!

Wonderful stay in this little treasure

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with another couple and had a 4y, 3y and 1y old with us. The house is newly renovated and everything is in top notch shape. It is child friendly and the pool and jacuzzi are just the right size. We loved the outdoor fire pit and watched fire flies in the evening will grilling marshmallows. The house is very close to Sunset Beach (Crescent Beach) and a short drive to the supermarket. The owner is very responsive and friendly, and answered within the hour. We will be back!

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this location, which was perfect for three adults and two older teens. Amazing pool / hot tub area, with tons of pool toys and a wonderful yard for games. The house is bright, cheerful and very clean, and feels modern yet cozy. Everything feels new or very well maintained. The owner is very responsive, and the instructions / recommendations very thorough.

Families with small kids in Shelter Island may find the dining options a bit expensive - not a problem if you're willing to cook, which we did most nights in the gas grill.

Overall, a great house and highly recommended!

Perfect first time home rental

  • 5 of 5

The nicest owner and super friendly. Our first time renting a house with my husband and toddler. They made it worth the 3hr drive from NYC. Didn't even know there is a huge strawberry farm in Long Island. We rented the house with 2 couples and they all enjoyed the pool and the whole house. The light up pool and the jacuzzi was our favorite. The grill was nice and big , we cooked 50% of the days. It was solo much fun being there and listening to music outside while playing batminton and volleyball ( we brought our own net). Over all great price and worth every penny.
