Beautiful. Serene. Comfortable. Idyllic.
Rented this house for the month of June, 2018. Loved every second of it and hated to leave. The house is at the end of a quiet drive and looks out onto Coecles Harbor. The view is stunning. Everything about the house- the layout, the furniture, the linens, the view of the harbor- everything exudes beauty, comfort and calm. As if the house itself isn’t perfect enough, the owners Edward and Tracey are the nicest people you will ever speak to or meet. They are easy to work with, are very reasonable and accommodating, and responsive. I do not have the slightest negative comment to make about the house, the owners or my trip. If I could go back tomorrow I would.
Wonderful spot to experience Shelter Island
This home was a perfect spot for our 3 generations to spend time relaxing on and exploring Shelter Island. The master bedroom on the first floor and 3 additional private bedrooms on the second floor suited us well. The enormous yards both front and back made us feel we were the only ones on the Island. There was no one else in sight. We enjoyed cocktails and apps on the deck with the views of the water and under fabulous tall trees. The dock was a great place from which to swim and feel the warm sun. Without moving the car you can bike anywhere on the island or take long walks into the Center or out onto Ram Island. We also took a lovely walk through Mashomack Preserve which offers 12 miles of inland and coastal trails. An afternoon on Silver Beach provided some sand. The cozy living room was just the place to watch the storms across the water when we had a rainy day.
Shelter Island Home is a cozy delight for sisters' reunion.
Shelter Island was a very cool vacation destination. This rental house was charming. Bedrooms were very comfortable - providing excellent nights' sleep and spectacular sunrises over the water. Were snowed in one day but had brought in plenty of food so with hot coffee and tea and some DVDs, we were set. So easy to use the ferry to get to wineries on the north fork and sightseeing and shopping on the south fork. It was a great stay. Perhaps we will try this again when the weather is warmer. Thank you Edward for your hospitality.
We are old hats at the Home Away game and have stayed in many many homes over the years. Our trip of 4 nights during the Thanksgiving holiday to this lovely Shelter Island property was really amazing. This is property must be ranked as one of the best amongst some pretty tough competitors. Firstly, the owner Edward was absolutely fantastic to work with. He is a consummate professional, responsive, and so communicative, and simply said, so nice. Secondly, the home was exactly as described: clean, serene, functional, historic but cozy, relaxing, and so user-friendly. We spent time walking the grounds, cooking in the kitchen that overlooks the harbor, and sitting by roaring fires while sipping Irish Coffees, what could be better? To top it all off, the house truly feels like a home, not a rarely used second house.
Aside from the great photos and look of the property, part of the reason we wanted to stay at the home was all of the great previously written reviews. After our stay, I am happy to add to that roster and we will plan to surely be back again.
Edward - thank you again for all of the communications leading up to our trip, it was a blast!
Amazing Stay - Perfect Home!
We are "old hats" at the Home Away game and have rented properties all over the country, some were great, some were subpar. This Shelter Island home is ranked at the very top of the list for many reasons. Firstly, Edward (property owner) was absolutely amazing to communicate with. He is flexible, communicative, and so helpful. Secondly, the house itself was more than a house, it truly is a home. It is warm, cozy, clean, and has a real cared for feel. Unlike some home rentals, where you feel that the property is a second house used for income and seldom cared for and enjoyed by the actual owners, this home feels very lived in, loved, and very up to date. You feel that in the home immediately upon entering! Further, the property was beautiful, quiet, serene, and a the home has a real "step out of time" while still feeling so comfortable, what a perfect blend, just amazing (house dates to the early 1800's).
The kitchen is highly functional, the bedrooms are clean and quaint, all linens were in top repair, and the fireplace (wood burning) was just awesome for those cold nights. The house was larger than we expected, but still very comfortable for a small party of just two! Really delightful.
The house, property, and the fantastic owner make this an easy answer to any desired seaside North East vacation. We are looking forward to many returns in the future. It was an awesome 4 day holiday. Thank you again, Edward!!
Perfect Home for a Long Island Getaway
Absolutely beautiful property. Edward was extremely accommodating. Our time at the home was better than we imagined. We left wishing we could stay longer! We'll definitely be coming back.
It was a total pleasure to have Diana and her family as our guests. She is an excellent communicator and was very friendly and easy going. We were thrilled to hear what a nice time they had at our house. We hope they come back and stay with us! -E
