About the property

3 bedrooms, 3 baths and a den with queen futon sleeps 6


At the end of a long driveway you’ll find this centrally located, tranquil and secluded country home on 1.5 acres and abutting 15 undeveloped acres. Surrounded by lawn and trees including a large tastefully fenced front lawn, outdoor shower and barbecue. Gentle breezes keep the house cool in the summer and there is little need for the AC( though we have it !)

Sunset Beach is just down the street. Golf, tennis and the Heights are a few minutes away. All other island beaches just minutes away by car

The house's airy open plan features a generous living area, large furnished decks on both floors, dining inside and out, and a gracious cook’s kitchen. Ground floor includes a bedroom with queen bed and an adjoining full bathroom, and a den with a queen futon. In the master bedroom, you’ll find a romantic four poster bed under the cathedral ceiling, with ensuite bath and generous deck. The cozy second bedroom upstairs has a full sized bed and another full bath. An embracing retreat from city life!

Great Shelter Island Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Mara's Shelter Island home offers everything you'd want or need for a perfect Island getaway. It's cool, quiet and comfortable. Set back from the main road, you're provided a wonderful retreat with comfortable rooms, an open living space and a great deck to relax on and gaze at the stars. Or if you insist on staying connected to civilization, there is wireless, a television, DVD and all the modern amenities you'd find at home. In fact, by the end of our two week stay we felt like we were home. Thanks, Mara! We would definitely stay here again.

Lovely home, with all the right touches!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a great weekend in Mara's home! It's a lovely home, with everything you'll need for a wonderful vacation - summer, fall, winter, spring. The 3 bedrooms are very comfortable - the master bedroom is quite large and beautifully appointed. Each bedroom has its own bathroom. Lots of books, up to the minute magazines, wireless in the TV room/den, fireplace. Close to Sunset Beach (a great walking destination). We will definitely return.
