Shelter Island Waterfront House With Dock And Private Beach

Bedrooms 3
Space 1,600 sq. ft.
Property type house


About the property

3 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, 6 Sleeps

Vacation house rental w/stunning views, private dock and beach.

Located minutes from South Ferry on pristine Smith's Cove, bordering Mashomack Preserve and overlooking Peconic bay, this spacious home with 3 bedrooms and 2½ baths comfortably sleeps 6. The house is set back from the quiet road, discretely nestled on a wooded half acre lot that sweeps down to a private dock. A minute stroll brings you to the private association beach while complimentary kayaks and bicycles can take you further afield. The house basks in wonderful light thanks to its Southern exposure, enjoyed best from the wraparound deck or garden hammock. The recently renovated interior features pickled oak floors, top of the line bathroom fixtures, new furniture, flat screen TV, wi-fi, fireplace, central heating and AC. If you're looking for somewhere to recharge, relax and rejuvenate then look no further. We could go on and on but the photos speak for themselves.

Great House! Great Location! Great View!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a great house, in a great location, with a great view, this is the house for you. The views are spectacular! We traveled for a long weekend with six adults, and felt right at home. Although we ate out most of the time, the kitchen is well equipped, as is the entire house. The house is very clean, and welcoming. If we find ourselves going back to Shelter Island, we would definitely stay at this house again.

loved it

  • 5 of 5

We booked this home for a quick getaway. The location and views are absolutely gorgeous. The owners take great care of their home. It is very very very clean. The bathrooms are gorgeous. There is not a lot of furniture in the house, but there is all the basics. Everything is pristine white and elegant. We used the kitchen a lot. Some of the appliances are old but they all work. We had beautiful dinners enjoying the view.

The kitchen could use more cookie sheets and ovenmits . It is great to do a lot of cooking and just sit and eat your meal - either inside or outside the views are incredible. The home has picture windows everywhere.

Stylish and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing stay. The house, the yard, the DECK, the private beach! The house was immaculately clean which is super important. I stayed here with my family and we were all super comfortable. This house was perfect for us (ages 25-65!). Simply decorated yet absolutely chic. Although we explored the beaches of shelter island it was nice to have a private beach to take a sunset stroll on; finding beautiful seashells and rocks was my favorite part about it.

The living room was bright, lots of natural sunlight. The bathrooms... we were all obsessed with them. State of the art showers, huge plus. Kitchen was BIT outdated but you know what, that did not matter to use because everything else was just so spectacular.

Chisato was responsive and helpful. I would love to rent this house again. For a family on a budget the house was perfect for us. We spent a lot of time hanging out on the deck, eating the Captain's famous fried chicken, drinking espresso and laughing. What a beautiful stay. I will be recommending this house to friends... although I may want to keep it as a family secret :)

Family reunion off season

  • 5 of 5

We had a family reunion during the off season and could have not selected a better home!

The views are amazing! You are right on the water and have your private dock!

The house was immaculately cleaned!

The sheets and towels were high quality and made for a perfect and very comfortable sleeping experience.

The house has been remodeled and the bathrooms are a truely work of art! Tastefully designed including rain fall showers and beautiful tiles.

The location is perfect! Great restaurants and close to the South ferry!

We will definitely stay again!

What an amazing stay. The island is as cute as can be with a mix of country and beach. It was such a delight, great food all around, farms, amazing beaches- nice and clean! But this stay would not have been nearly as amazing without Chisato's home. With breezy, slightly chilly nights the deck was the most perfect place to hang out, equipped with barbecue and serene backdrop of the bay. My whole family was beyond content. The pictures DO NOT do this place justice. Most importantly it was CLEAN which my family and I always appreciate. The showers were modern and grand, the living room aesthetic was simple, chic and comfortable... oh and spacious! I hope to rent here again :) The kitchen was also well equipped and spacious, a bit outdated but that is was gave it a little extra charm, as if it need more, totally NOT a deal breaker (for us at least)... The private beach is peaceful and beautiful, especially at sunset but wade's beach is larger and only 5 minutes away by car- what a sweet deal considering living in the city you have to travel 45 minutes to the nearest beach!! It was the cutest home, my family and i enjoyed every minute of it. I could go on and on for days about this home and Shelter Island it self... One last thing, go to Sunset Beach to paddle board and eat at Captain Codys but be prepared to wait!

A Wonderful Place to Spend a Blissful Family Trip

  • 5 of 5

What a gem! If you're looking for a serene, relaxing, beautiful place to decompress with family and friends, look no further. This lovely 3-bedroom house on the water is all that and more. We can't say enough about the location, just minutes from Shelter Island's South Ferry overlooking a picturesque cove and a quick stroll from a private beach (great for shell and rock collectors).

The house was recently remodeled, and the bedrooms, bathrooms, and living room are sleek and modern and very comfortable. The owner told us the kitchen remodel is in the works, although it's certainly usable as is (even with older appliances). I can't say enough about the quality of the bathrooms -- we loved the rain showers and the generous tub, which our two toddlers loved bathing in. Beds were luxurious and great; no lumpy mattresses here!

If you have young children, the house is particularly well equipped with toys, a high chair, baby gates, and a travel crib. Our kids loved playing out on the deck all day, and we felt totally safe to let them do so. We barely turned on the flat-screen TV because we were having so much fun outdoors -- beach-hopping, grilling, kayaking in the home's kayak, exploring the island's farms and historical sites, and just generally basking in the beauty of the region. We'll never forget the 10 days we spent here this summer. Can't wait to come back.
