All within walking distance to Stella Maris Resort and beaches.
The just renovated Sunset Residence is shining. There are sweeping views of both sides of the island.
Whether you are a couple, or a group of seven, this house has an intimate feeling of warmth and comfort. The upstairs living space is just as nice for two as it is for more people.
From the huge deck, one has the views and soothing sounds of the ocean on both sides of our island. It's a special place to star gaze at night.
This unique home has four bedrooms and two baths on the ground floor and a beautiful upstairs with a large 'Sunset Deck', great room with a nice kitchen and a spacious lounging area. The bedrooms are in groups of two, each set with a shared bathroom.
This beautiful home is in within walking distance to the Stella Maris Resort, well known for its rum-punch parties and The Moonshine Bar, to the Stella Maris swimming pools, to the Love Beaches and to snorkeling. It's minutes from the Stella Maris Airport and to some of the most pristine and beautiful beaches in the world.
It's also just minutes from the "Main Road", bringing you North or South to all the other wonders of Long Island. To the North are the famous Cape Santa Maria Beach, Columbus Bay and Monument, and the Adderley Plantation Ruins. To the South are the famous Deans Blue Hole, Clarencetown and the Flying Fish Marina, wooden smack sloop building...and more.
Long Island is just remote enough to be away from the "tourist kitsch" but not remote as not to have a great availability of good food, drink, high speed internet, etc. One can mingle with others for a "sundowner" or be the only person on a beach. The weather is wonderful: not too hot, breezy, and generally sunny.

About Susan Koster
We, Rolf and Susan, are a Swiss and American couple who have lived on Long Island for many years. Of all the beautiful places on the planet, we chose to reside here. We travel all over the world and are sensitive to the needs of our guests. We enjoy sharing the magic of our island with our guests.
Why Susan Koster chose Stella Maris
The Sunset Residence, in addition to its location on one of the most narrow parts of Long Island, with views of both coasts, has a warm ambiance all about it.

beautiful property with a great location
This is a great house with plenty of space. It's in a great location and walking distance to the Stella Maris resort if you fancy a drink in the evening.
Susan and Rolf were exceptionally kind and courteous. Myself and my friends were extremely happy about the house and would do it again.
Thank you Susan
Thank you for your kind words. We enjoy sharing our island with nice people. We hope you'll return!
Susan and Rolf were gracious hosts, entertaining my husband and son until I arrived a few days later. My son loved watching the hockey game with Rolf!!!
The magnificent views from the rooftop patio are superb. We spent a great deal of time enjoying the ocean and island views. Great location, minutes by car to the Stella Maris pool/resort. The breeze upstairs through the kitchen and dining area was refreshing throughout the hot days(lots of windows), keeping us cool throughout the hot days. The washer/dryer in the residence was very handy and the bedrooms very roomy. The spiral staircase may be tricky with small children, but our children are older so we were fine. We miss the island already and wish we were at Sunset Residence right now-watching the sunset.......
We enjoyed meeting you and your wonderful family. We also are pleased the house worked well for you and look forward to your return. The spiral staircase can be a challenge ...we agree. It's a very good thing there is no need to carry suitcases upstairs :)
Two weeks of reconnecting and disconnecting...
The Sunset Residence gave me a chance to reconnect with my family, and disconnect from the daily stress of every day life with two small children. The home is so tastefully decorated that it was wonderful to watch the children decide which bedroom would be theirs. I worried about my 3 month old baby, and whether or not his "wake up calls" would wake up my sister & her children. However, that was not the case at all. Due to the unique design of the home, the only person he awoke was me. In the evening, my sister and I were able to reconnect upstairs while our children peacefully slept downstairs. Each morning, the views encouraged us to get out & enjoy Long Island; waking up to almost 360 degree views of pristine waters will do that to anyone! Long Island provided us with such an array of activities; even with an infant, we were able to do so much. So sincerely grateful to have had the time to watch cousins play together while I reconnected with my sister in a home as beautiful as The Sunset Residence.
Ah, dear Bridget......We were thrilled that you enjoyed the house and Long Island.
Wonderful holiday in a wonderful house
We spent two weeks in the sunset residence on Long Island. The house is very spacious and offers a terrific view on the sea (view on both sides of the island, i.e. Atlantic and Carribean). We can recommend this house without hesitation.
Long Island is the perfect hideaway from everyday life: beautiful deserted beaches, crystal clear water, nice snorkeling spots, lovely people and, and, and…
We loved it so much that we will try to come back as soon as possible!
Thank you for your kind words ... we loved watching you enjoy Long Island.
Long Island is filled with natural attractions: Cape Santa Maria Beach is rated one of the ten most beautiful in the world, Adderley's Plantation dates back to American Revolutionary War Days, Dean's Blue Hole is the deepest in the world, Coral Reefs with snorkeling and scuba diving surround the island, the bone fishing is some of the best anywhere. There are many hiking trails, there are frequent fly-ins to our local airport, there are Rake 'n Scrape Bands, and frequent Rum-Punch Parties, and the list goes on and on and on. With all this beauty, what guests remember the most, are the local people of Long Island. They are hard-working, spiritual, honest, and fun!
