Description & Details of Shelter Island Hideaway - Hamptons Vacation Renta
This past year we were booked solid from May through September, judging by the early bookings this year we expect the same.

Here is some additional information about the cottage, please let me know if you have any questions or would like to reserve the property. 

Though constructed in 2003 and updated 2008, we have just completed a new Spring update and makeover. The cottage has many pieces of new furniture, new Roman Shades throughout  the entire 1st levels of 16 French doors and windows, and new flat screen TV's on both levels. The 2nd floor Master Suite just had new Martha Stewart wall to wall carpeting installed, some new furniture and a refresh of the bath, assuring our continued top ratings and more importantly your comfort and enjoyment.

I will be sending you this email twice, once with no photos as some spam filters block emails with pictures attached.

Our Caribbean style Beach Cottage was featured on CBS National television show The Price Is Right Valentines Special in 2009, and a weeks stay was given away on the Price is Right Valentines Day special show as part of the Showcase Showdown. As you could imagine, there are thousands or even 10's of thousands  of rental properties in the Hamptons they could have chosen, but they chose our romantic Caribbean inspired cottage for the Final Showcase Showdown. FYI, the people that won, came, stayed and absolutely loved it!

Last summer Shelter Island Hideaway was included on OffManhattan article bout biking and staying on Shelter Island you can read the story here. in OffManhattan article

Our Shelter Island Hideaway Beach Cottage is now the top rated and highest viewed property in the Hamptons and Shelter Island on many websites. You can find our properties featured (and maps to them) on  Google,  Yahoo, Local.com, and TripAdvisor only lists 1 property, ours,  for Shelter Island Vacation Rentals (scroll down to see) as well as being featured on over 1 dozen other websites.

There cottage is located across the street from a beautiful semi private beach with a long stretch of beach to the left with the Crab Creek Inlet opposite (great for kayaking),  a boat launch and the Estate section of the Island to the right.  If you have a boat,  you can put in the water right across rom the house as well as easily arrange a mooring or dockage for your time on the Island. 

The following is some additional information you may find helpful about Shelter Island, our Shelter Island Hideaway cottage, as well as some photos of our cottage, the property, our beach and waterfront,  the boat launch across the street, as well as a few reviews from past guests. 


Our Shelter Island Beach Vacation cottage is located between the South Fork's Sag Harbor and the North Fork's Greenport, just few minute ferry ride from either side, and yes, you can easily take your vehicle with you, or cross on foot or bicycle. Once on the Island the house is just and 2.5 miles from the North Ferry and 3.5 miles from the South Ferry. The Shelter Island Hideaway property is located in the Estate section of Shelter Island (homes are all on 1-10 acres), beautiful, secluded,  unique and meticulously maintained. Custom designed and built by an International Travel editor in 2003 and recently redecorated, the cottage is unique and brimming with charm and character, delightfully showcasing the beautiful European and Caribbean influences.

The following are a couple of the reviews of over 100 posted online by past guests.

 Great getaway!, August 18
By Gerri and Steve (Eatons Neck, NY USA)
This was such a peaceful and tranquil setting for our vacation. Anyone wanting to get away from it all should come here. The pools, waterfall and beautiful wildlife make it unique and relaxing. We just left and miss it already! Gerri and Steve

 Your search for paradise has ended, July 14
By Diane Piegare (Glenmont, New York USA)
How wonderful to know that a luxurious accomodation in a truly natural setting still exists! The best of both worlds, the rejuvenation of a spa but not closed off from the outdoors, instead you are living among nature. Sounds, sights are so fulfilling . Walk to beach and returning for a dip in the pools. The covered patio was a pleasure, it was a way to enjoy the sound of the rain and still be outside and not worry when the sun would return. Even when you are indoors you are always enjoying a glorious view due to the mulitude of windows. The cleanliness was excellent throughout, top to bottom. A hot and cold running water outdoor private shower. Ahhh... or an upstairs bath/jacuzzi? That was my dilemma for the day. The lovely owners assisted us in any way possible to make our stay stress free. Books abound if you forget your own. The island itself continues the unhurried life style. We will return without a doubt. A+ Sincerely, Diane and Andrew Piegare Albany, New York

 Just one word AHHHHH, April 21
By Katherine Stevens (Manhattan)
Even nicer then described, this cottage was just so peaceful and relaxing, just what I needed in my escape from the city (NYC). The sound of the waterfalls, the birds and being able to open up the wall of doors made you feel as f you were one with nature. Great place for romance and located across the street from the water was the best, there every day. Highly recommend this property

The cottage property is very secluded and sound of the 3 waterfalls lulls you into a sense of well being and relaxation.It is professionally landscaped and maintained weekly by our grounds person Mariano. Both our guests and the many species of birds on the Island love the over a dozen different types of flowering ornamental trees including cherry trees, Dogwood, Lilac, Pear and Russian Olives, Evergreen,  Bamboo and flowers. The Butterfly bush attracts so many butterflies every day, kids and adults alike can sit and gaze for hours. The 2 pools are serviced week, and the pond and fish are cared for by our property caretaker. If you would rather swim in natural water or walk a quiet beach, simply cross the street to our serene semi private beach or the calm inlet, Crab Creek.

You will find our cottage to be open yet intimate and Zen like,  immediately transporting you to what feels like your own private Caribbean Island. The cottage is flanked by two 10' x 12'  (4+' deep) Roman Dipping Pools with a waterfall in each one. A large Pergola covered Bluestone Veranda sits just beyond the third side of the completely glassed in room. With 15 with sliding French Doors that open the boundaries of outside and inside blend together as one. You can actually sit inside the sun soaked room, yet dangle their feet into either of the 2 dipping pools and if you feel like, just slide right into the water. Of course there is a kitchen with everything you could need to dine and cook indoors. 4 burner stove, microwave, dishwasher and a full array of pots, pans, dishes, cups and glasses.

Downstairs sleeping is accommodated by both a new Full/Queen sized sleeper sofa as well as a new Full/Queen day bed. Guests on the first floor have their own ½ bath and can feel decadent and use the enclosed outdoor shower area.  Upstairs in the Master Bedroom suite is another fireplace, 2 sided so you can enjoy from both the bedroom or while lounging in the tub. The bedroom has Queen sized bed  with skylight above and the Master Bath also has a skylight, oversized tub and twin pedestal sinks. 

The property is truly special and we have a huge 75' pond with Koi, Goldfish and Aquatic plants, water features and a 6' waterfall surrounded by ornamental trees such as Cherry, Dogwood, Pear, Evergreen,  Russian Olives and Bamboo among others. We have had many photo shoots done here and you may see the property in movies, TV and magazines.

Need a little exercise or just a pleasurable diversion? Whenever possible we do our best to include bicycles, or maybe you prefer to walk or jog down the charming tree canopied street, Nostrand Parkway,  past the beautiful multi-million dollar estates and mansions along the waterfront. where you will eventually cone to the famous Sunset Beach/ Crescent Beach, is just a bit more than a mile away.  Shelter Island has many beaches, inlets, and sanctuaries along with quiet streets for endless exploration.

Are you a Foodie, or just enjoy good eats? There are many terrific dining choices both on Island and in nearby North and South Forks. Have breakfast at one of the town favorites, great egg sandwiches at the popular Stars is a choice spot for Islanders and visitors alike. For dinner that is unsurpassed anywhere visit the place where the movie and TV stars, locals and visitors alike dine the elegant and awesome food of (recently on The Food Network) Vine Street Café. If you or go to where you also might bump into a yacht owner (Barry Diller) or a TV and movie stars gazers go, the very cosmopolitan Sunset Beach Hotel and bar and restaurant. Sweet Tomatoes is another island favorite for extremely good Italian Food. Mark it with a G, an amazing Parisian bake shop now serving gourmet pizza too. 

Prior to your arrival we will supply you with our Shelter Island Cottage book, with pages and pages of information about both the cottage the Island and surrounding area, you know where to go, what to do all the hot spots , etc. For instance take home gourmet meals and food, you can visit Redding Gourmet and take home one of they're amazing Long Island Crispy Ducks and other gourmet treats. How about staying home and firing up the BBQ? Choose the Weber gas grill, or the Weber charcoal grill, go to one of the Islands fresh fish markets Bobs and Commander Cody's  or the IGA grocery store on the Island. There are other smaller markets including a newly opened Deli just a mile away, 2 liquor stores, a few ice cream shops and many other choices on Island. 

Just across the street from the cottage is our semi-private waterfront where each nights spectacular sunsets surpass the previous. We have a very quiet ¾ mile long semi private beach just across the street, perfect for swimming and boating. We have some of the Islands BEST sunsets every night at our beach, no permits necessary, either walk across the street of load your car up and drive, no permit needed. Opposite the beach is an inlet area called crab creek that is calm as can be and great for kayaking, canoeing or just floating and swimming. 

Parking permits are only needed for town beaches, they run $35 a week, or $75 per month and can be obtained at the Shelter Island Town Hall. There are 4 large Town beaches on the Island, the closest is 1 ¼ mile away, Sunset Beach (Crescent Beach). Take the kids swimming, or grab one of the Margarita or Martini glasses and head over to watch the areas most gorgeous of sunsets.

If you prefer to go off Island the two ferries will whisk you on a few minute ferry ride, each for is known for different things and there are unlimited choice, attraction, dining and places to go. The North Fork Ferry has great wine tasting, quaint towns, antiquing and much more. The South Ferry over to Sag Harbor and the Hamptons, dining, celeb watching, farm stands, shopping and the big waves of Montauk. 

Shelter Island is peaceful, relaxing, tranquil and bucolic.
