Peaceful Shelter Island Getaway-directly Across From Preserved Land

There is also another AC in the bedroom hallway which feeds the bedrooms . The upstairs has a large ceiling fan plus an ac unit. Often times the cross breeze from the screened in balconies and the fan is sufficient. About the Area: Shelter Island is unique to Long Island's east end because it's only accessible by ferry.

You may be happy to hear that the island has been dubbed the "un Hamptons" by some because of its low key, relaxed and quiet atmosphere.

There you find breathtaking views of fields, creeks, and shoreline. If you are in the mood for an adventure, hop on the north ferry towards Greenport or the south ferry towards Sag Harbor and The Hamptons.

Great Place at Shelter Island

We liked the house a lot - it's spacious, and it's located within walking distance from a tennis court, and a local grocery store. Also, water is with great pressure, and it's hot (in other places we've rented, it's either not hot, nor has enough pressure for a good shower). Our dog was also very comfortable with the plenty of trees and grass around the house. The windows on each side allowed a natural flow of fresh air, and the kitchen was never full with smoke. There's a TV, where one could watch ESPN for free, or just browse YouTube, or watch Sky News live, or just login many of the services available (subscription may be required). The host has made it all to the details - including real cloth dining napkins. Weather was great, so w didn't need to use the A/C units, but there was one in each bedroom, and one in the living room. Overall - if we are going back to Shelter Island, we would contact this property again.

Great, low-key family vacation on SI

My husband, daughter and I (and our dog!) enjoyed our stay at Andrew's home on SI. The home was great for a low-key family vacation with lots of grilling, beach days and time spent running in the grassy lawn. The property was located an easy walk to ice cream and mini-golf, plus a short drive to the grocery store, multiple beaches, and fun breakfast spots. Definitely recommend for families seeking a relaxed, homey environment that is dog-friendly!

Peaceful Shelter Island Getaway

This property really allows the beauty of the surroundings to be seen. There are lots of sliding glass doors and a small second level porch that is perfect for watching the birds, squirrels, deer, and the occasional wild turkey. Delightful.

Beautiful house!

Great common area for entertaining/hanging out. Easy directions for how to use the Internet, get into the house, etc. House has three double beds downstairs. We also enjoyed the board games and record player!
