a perfect family getaway

  • 5 of 5

I look forward all year to our family vacation on this beautiful quiet island and this year we created more wonderful memories at this charming house. It was spacious with many choices to gather for sharing a meal or a cocktail. Our family of 5 sprawled in comfort. The central location to the ball courts/field, food shopping and short bike ride to the beach made it easy to keep all ages happy. The owners are responsive and easy to work with. A perfect family getaway location!

Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My husband, my married son and his wife and daughter, as well as my single son and his girlfriend, spent a relaxing weekend at this beautifully decorated home. As soon as we walked in, we felt our moods lift. First impressions were right--this well stocked, charming home created the perfect setting for our retreat. We loved the togetherness as we cooked and ate family meals; but appreciated being able to get some alone time too. There are plenty of private areas in and outside of the house to sit and read or even to take a nap. Central to one of the two Shelter Island towns, we were able to walk to a great food market and wine store to pick up last minute additions to our meals. We did more than just cook and eat and sleep and read! (At least some of us did.) The island has wonderful beaches that are perfect for my young granddaughter to swim in and the adults to snorkel in. A couple of us rented bikes. And a few took a walk in the Mashomack Preserve. We left feeling renewed and looking forward to spending more time together. Thanks to the magic of Shelter Island and the comfort of this wonderful rental.

Beautiful Shelter Island Home

  • 5 of 5

This handsomely decorated house was a delightful place to spend a summer week away from the city. My husband and I had a wonderful few days alone enjoying the airy rooms, inviting outdoor areas and beautiful gardens. Then, for the weekend, there was plenty of room for our adult kids and their spouses. With the large, well-equipped kitchen, barbecue and the outdoor spice garden we prepared and serve feasts and the central location gave us good access to beaches, tennis courts, restaurants and shopping. I would recommend this lovely Shelter Island rental enthusiastically and look forward to visiting it again soon.

My girlfriends get-away weekend was wonderful in this lovely home on Shelter Island! We had plenty of room for all of to have our own space throughout the home - bathrooms and bedrooms were clean and welcoming. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to make dinners and such. The owner was very welcoming and helpful when we made our travel arrangements; eager to accommodate our arrival times.

We loved our time on the island and can't wait to go back - highly recommend this property!

great find!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. There was lots of space inside and it was close close to everything we needed. You can easily walk to baseball and basketball fields, a playground and shops. But our favorite part, far and away, was being able to enjoy the garden and let the kids pick tomatoes and blackberries.

Perfect Summer Escape

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely August family getaway in this beautifully decorated 4 bedroom home on Shelter Island. Vacationing with our young teenage children we found this airy and spacious home well suited to accommodate everyone's needs and interests. With numerous seating areas -- a large living room, spacious porch and lovely gardens -- there is a hospital environment for family time and also room for everyone's individual pursuits. My husband made an office away from home on the porch while I favored the garden for reading and the kids had friends over in the sprawling living room area. We had great summer family meals prepared in the well-equipped kitchen and outdoor barbecue. Shelter Island is perfect for biking, swimming and picnicking at the beach. The owners of the house were very helpful in directing us to the best fish stores, sunset beaches and gave good recommendations for local restaurants. I think this house is a lovely place to unwind and savor the best of summer in Shelter Island.
