About the property

4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms

Our Shelter Island beach house is within a 5-minute walk to beautiful Wades Beach. The house was built in 2010 and has brand-new appliances, fixtures and furniture in four bedrooms and three full baths. The house is available from Memorial Day through Labor Day.

It offers guests a peaceful and quiet spot for an unforgettable vacation only 100 miles from New York City. Our beach house is situated on more than one acre on South Midway Road, about 1 mile from Shelter Island Heights, with easy access to the surrounding restaurants, shops and Mashomack Nature Preserve. Our house is just a short walk from the house to the sand and the water. The Hamptons are minutes away.

The interior features 4 bedrooms (2 master bedrooms with private bathrooms) and 3 bathrooms in a sunny two-story-style layout (dual zone Central Air equipped). There is a fully equipped gourmet kitchen with all new appliances, including dishwasher. High-quality linen and towels are provided.

The backyard has a wraparound porch with furniture and grill perfect for a barbecue. The large backyard is ideal for summer evening entertaining.

This is a great place for an easy vacation. The house was very well stocked and immaculately clean. The best part was the close proximity to the beach.

Wonderful, spacious house steps from the beach

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this property a number of times and we keep coming back! It is the perfect place for family and/or friends to relax and enjoy all that the North Fork has to offer. Literally steps from Wade's Beach, and a quick drive into town, this is a wonderful house, and perfect for children or adults. And Christina and Kevin are the consummate hosts! They know all of the best local spots and have been great to work with.

Wonderful Weekend & Tranquil Oasis!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic long weekend with my fiancee & 2 nieces. The property is a tranquil oasis set a little back from the road & a short walk from Wade's Beach. The house is surprisingly large with a fully stocked open kitchen that looks out into a vibrant green backyard. Plenty of beach gear on hand including a Radio Flyer wagon made the short walk to Wades Beach very convenient. We'll def be back!

Some tips:

*- The backyard porch is perfect spot for a leisurely breakfast

*- Take the most peaceful nap ever in a hammock under a tree in the backyard as you fall asleep to the chirping of birds

*- Wade's Beach is a bit rocky so grab some water shoes. Once you get past the first 15 feet or so it clears up.

*- Take in the sunset from the sunroom in the front of the house

Cozy, Roomy, and Close to the Beach

  • 5 of 5

We were two couples with three kids and my parents. What was nice about this house is that it has 2 master bedrooms, with their own full baths, on separate floors. We put my elderly parents upstairs and we used the three bedrooms on the main floor. It has an open living room and kitchen area which was nice to spread out in (exposed beam ceilings are nice). The sun room with the TV was good to stick the kids in while we were on the other side of the house. It has a large backyard of about an acre. The owner left beach chairs, umbrellas, and toys in the shed. The greatest part is that the walk to the beach is 5 minutes! It's four doors to Wades Beach, which is a very good spot for kids because it's on the bay. The property was meticulously kept, it had garbage pickup, and we used their cleaning women to come weekly. The owner was very nice and answered my emails and texts right away. If you are looking for a big house near a beach, this was a good value and a really nice vacation house.
