It’s wonderful to know that Shelter Island Hideaway has everything you need in a vacation rental. You get the best of both nature and the relaxation of a spa. The walk to the beach is a short one while the multitude of windows is enough to tickle your senses even when you remain indoors.
A 75' Koi Pond, rushing waterfalls, and Eastern influenced landscaping is just some of the wonderful surprises to be found at Shelter Island Hideaway. It’s a home away from home with a lot of extra perks thrown in.
A romantic getaway was what we wanted and that’s what we got at Shelter Island Hideaway. A semi private beach, secluded pools, waterfalls, and a cottage that would make you want to hand around for life. We found our true romantic getaway right here.
We too stayed at Shelter Island Hideaway, a perfect place with a private beach just across. If you are looking for an isolated beach and a wonderful place to stay with an outdoor porch with grills, we recommended you make your way to the Hamptons.
Wow, such a cool and beautiful place. We love nature and there was so much to enjoy. From the rabbits, the bright yellow and red birds in the pond, the sound of waterfalls and even a couple of deer.
The pools were fantastic, my son deemed the one on the right to be "his": while my husband and I used the other. Now that was really just perfect.
We used both the gas and charcoal grills for some lunch and 2 dinners and really enjoyed the choice of dining spots that the owner had told us about, every meal as great. The beach across the street was perfect, rarely did we see anybody else on it. We also went about a mile down the road to Sunset beach to hang out and enjoy all the "beautiful" people and their yachts.
We will most definitely be back, one of the nicest rentals we have been in, in many, many years.
We had an ecstatic sojourn at the Shelter Island Cottage, nothing short of a beautiful experience. The beach house has got some stellar sights, especially its serene & huge Koi pond. We just fell in love with the whole place that looks not just quiet & secluded but gives you a wonderful Caribbean flair to reminisce. Our room was very comfortable and spacious – nattily arranged with sheer white sheets and a pristine look. It was overall a lovely and unforgettable experience.
