STYLISH SHELTER ISLAND HOME WITH POOL AND WALK TO BEACH.

Shelter Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Clean, modern and uncluttered with a focus on comfort, this property will make you feel as though you are staying at a chic boutique hotel. Recently renovated and decorated. Everything is fresh!

Laze around the pool in the spa like setting or stroll 2 1/2 blocks to the beach to collect shells or watch the sunset. Take a short bike ride (3 provided) to Hay Beach for a dip in the water at the best swimming beach on the island. Relax in the spacious living room with wood burning fireplace or in the roomy den where you can stream your Netflix movies on the new 46' LED TV. The covered front porch is a great place to enjoy a good book, an afternoon nap or glass of wine before dinner. Fire up the new Weber gas grill and have a meal outside overlooking the sparkling pool or in the formal dining room featuring a breathtaking green onyx table and vintage chandelier. After dinner have your dessert out on the deck while looking at the stars above.

Mornings in this secluded neighborhood are calm and quiet, perfect for sleeping in. Each of the three bedrooms has new wood floors, soft area rugs, designer linens, down comforters, cotton throws and plenty of pillows. No one will feel like they got the reject room! The master has a queen bed and private bath, the second queen looks out on the pool and the adorable twin bedroom has dapple morning light filtering through a giant tree. The brand new chef's kitchen features a Viking stove and high end appliances and is well equipped with cookware and tools, new dishware and glasses, and basic pantry items. Use your laptop and our WIFI to catch up on e-mails or surf the internet while sipping coffee at the the bright kitchen table overlooking pool. Head out for a peaceful early morning walk around Hay Beach point and be back in time for breakfast.

Don't feel like cooking? Head to town, only 5 minutes away, for the best coffee at Stars Cafe, an addictive lobster roll or flat pizza at Redding's Market or a top quality gourmet meal at Vine St. Cafe. Pick up toys and beach items at the Deering Harbor department store, shop the beautiful boutiques on Grand St. or head over to Marika's to find a treasure at her eclectic antique store.

Reconnect with nature in the Mashomack Preserve, a 2,100-acre wonderland with ten miles of coastline, creeks, forests, salt marshes and quiet meadows owned by the Nature Conservancy. Hit the hiking trails for quick and easy (1.5 miles) or lengthy and rigorous (11 miles) walk. Other outdoor activities include fishing, golf, tennis, biking, and sailing. You'll find information about where to go for what in a folder at the house or you can just ask one of the many friendly people you will come upon during your stay.

Rest and Relaxation

  • 5 of 5
If you are in need or want a little R and R, this house provides the ultimate in rest and relaxation. We spent 10 wonderful days here and honestly were a little heart broken we had to leave. The decor of the house is hip yet comfortable. Super clean! The kitchen is stocked with everything you would ever need. Nice outdoor grill and comfortable outdoor/pool furniture. The yard/pool was private and beautiful! Great location, close to beaches and restaurants. Bikes are available to ride around the island. The owner of the house was fantastic and so helpful with information about the island. Shelter Island is a sleepy coastal town, and every inch is beautiful. If you get a chance, visit the local farmer's market. We hope to go back next year and would recommend this house to anyone.

Stylish Shelter Island Home

  • 5 of 5
This was one of the best weeks that I have spent with my family. The house was perfect for us - plenty of room to spread out and relax. The pool, the focal point of our vacation, was great. We arrived to a clean, uncluttered, chic house with everything from baking tools to pool toys to bicycles in easy to find places. The photos accurately reflect the house and the owner was always available to answer any questions we had. We fell in love with Shelter Island, with all of it's nooks and crannies, restaurants, shops, places to walk and collect beautiful shells and stones. Vine Street Cafe was a high point, as was lunch of raw clams and bloody mary's at Salt. We hope to go back next year and would recommend this house to anyone.

Perfect place to relax and unwind

  • 5 of 5
We spent two weeks at this property and absolutely loved it. The owners have taken excellent care of this home and it is very well equipped. The outdoor area is fantastic - we loved the mini bar area beside the BBQ and the outdoor dining unit. The weather was great so we ate outside almost every evening and loved it. The pool and gardens are also very well cared for.
The home is situated in a very peaceful neighborhood so perfect for relaxing. It is ideal for walkers, joggers and cyclists as the roads are quiet and there is a speed limit of 35 mph. Hay Beach was the closest beach and was our favourite. It is great for swimming and also for Paddleboarding (you can rent nearby). The owners provided a recommendation list for places to visit in the area including some great suggestions for restaurants.
The amenities within the property are as described and in good condition. The wireless was excellent and worked in the outdoor areas in addition to all the rooms within the house.
The only downside in the property was the fact that two of the bedrooms did not have an AC unit which made them quite uncomfortable during the night.

Stylish Shelter Island Home needs just a little TLC

  • 4 of 5
Overall, this is a wonderful property as rental properties go. With a little more TLC, it could be truly outstanding. Many of the rooms are "super" and the beds are very comfortable. The kitchen is wonderfully equipped and well organized. For those of you who care (we did not), there is no microwave. The bathrooms are good and the master bath is fantastic. So, what's not to like? I guess I would say the family room (the ONLY one with a TV) was really not very comfortable. The couch saw better days years ago and leaks feathers when you sit on it. The patio furniture is plentiful and comfortable but seems to be deteriorating a bit from being in the weather because it leaves white "lint" on you whenever you sit on it. The house comes with plenty of luxurious beach towels and I suggest you use these on the chairs before you sit. The pool is great. The one thing that is missing (and we missed it!) is central A/C. There is a wall unit in the family room and another in the master B/R but they are not adequate when the humidity is up. The other two bedrooms are hot! Fans (provided) help a little. It would be nice if the bed rooms had blackout shades (they do not) All in all though, I don't think you can go wrong with this property. The owner is attentive to your needs.

Owner's Response: In addition to full renovation of the kitchen, central air, tv/cable in master bedroom, brand new outdoor teak dining set and chaise lounges, black out curtains in all rooms, a microwave and new sofa cover (sofa was designed and made for jonathan adler and is fabulous) were added in 2013.

Lovely House

  • 5 of 5
Our family of four had a wonderful stay at this lovely home. The house was clean and very comfortable. It seemed no detail has been overlooked to provide for a great vacation. We particularly liked the kitchen which had ample supplies for cooking and baking! The house is perfectly situated in walking distance to the beach and an easy drive to town. Kate is a gracious and stylish host indeed!

A lovely spot

  • 4 of 5
We are sticklers for beautiful design, and always find it hard to find just the right place... Kate's home on Shelter Island was modern, comfortable, a lovely place to stay - and equipped with everything you might need to have a home away from home. Everything was within biking distance, include one of the nicest beaches on the island. We recommend it highly.

Shelter Island is an ideal vacation destination, away from it and yet close the the happenings of the Hamptons. It is truly New York's best kept secret! This island, accessible only by ferry, is only 8,000 acres and yet it offers some of the best restaurants in the Hamptons as well as beautiful beaches, sailing, golf, fishing, boating, cultural events and bird and animal watching in the 2,500 acre nature preserve. Enjoy sunset at one of the many quiet beaches, a quaint little pub or head to Crescent Beach for a cocktail among the jet set at Andre Balaz's Sunset Beach restaurant.

You needn’t leave the island but if you choose to, Greenport and Sag Harbor are just a ferry ride away. Venture a little further and explore the north fork, known for its quaint towns, vineyards and farmers markets, or head to the south fork for the hottest fashion stores and restaurants, movie theaters, ocean beaches, and fish markets.

Other Activities: Going for walks on the beach, napping by the pool, reading by the fire, watching a movie on the HD tv, cooking a wonderful meal to enjoy with friends and family, coffee at stars cafe, dining at one of the many great food purveyors, watching sunset from Hay Beach Point or Sunset Bar and Grill, antiquing at Marika's or Beall and Bell, shopping at local boutiques, going to vineyards for wine tastings, shopping in greenport, movies in Sag Harbor, biking around the island, and relaxing in the sun by the pool.

Golf: There is a 9-hole public golf course. Quaint little place with beautiful views.
