Hi, I'm David!

My wife and I own these two beautiful beach homes on Shelter Island, they were originally build by an international travel writer. The 4+ bedroom home is styled after a European Home and the second house is very Len like smaller Carribean style Cottage. They sit on adjacent properties and for intents and purposes are completely self contained and separate. As an added benefit, there is a hidden gate that can be opened and the two properties connect and become one large compound.

The houses are OUR homes, they are NOT typical rental properties, we also live there and rent to help in paying for these two beautiful beach homes. Insides is decorated tastefully, it is NOT full of cheap furniture or worn out items. We pride ourselves in their style and upkeep, we only rent to couples and families and every year update both homes, even though they are only 8 years old. Last year we installed a beautiful new kitchen update with high end appliances and high solid surface counters. If you read the descriptions, you will see other updates we have made in the last few years. We also update the cottage every year with new furniture etc. A stay at our cottage was actually given away on the Valentines special CBS the Price is Right, chosen out of the thousands of properties out east.

Our homes have some of the highest ratings in the Hamptons and on Shelter Island and as you can see from the ratings, everyone that has stayed has loved it. Please feel free to ask any questions you like and we welcome you to our homes.

Here are my properties:

Wonderful Family Vacation

“ Excellent ”
October 2, 2011
We stayed at this amazing house from Sep 10-17 and had the best time (we = two couples and two toddlers). The house was perfect. Great location with all the amenities you can imagine inside and outside the house (pool, large back yard, outdoors storage for bikes, grills, 4 bedrooms (one of them a loft), the best kitchen, nice entertainment room, etc.The house was also just 2 minutes away from a very nice beach, totally quiet, literally across the street. The owner was very easy to deal with and everything was done very professionally. We had a small issue with the fridge and called and he responded right away. Problem solved in 5 minutes.There were really no cons. Maybe the fact that you have to bring your own garbage to the local recycling dump but that was not a big deal because we knew about it from all the information that the owner gave us.We would love to come back next year.

Wonderful Surprise - a Mini Retreat

“ Excellent ”
July 25, 2010
After many years spent summering on Block Island, it was time for a change. The Shelter Island Hideaway cottage was better than we could have imagined. In an easy trip from CT, we were enticed by the farms and vineyards of the North Fork - reminiscent of Provence with farm stands and fields of lavender and sunflowers. Once on Shelter Island, it is easy to relax and forget about everyday concerns. Reddings and Greeny's Markets provide a wide variety of quality specialty foods to bring back to the cottage. Once there, it is difficult to find reason to leave, except to walk to the nearby beach at sunset. The open sun room flanked by two lap pools brings the outdoors in and the sound of the fountain flowing into the nearby Koi pond provides the perfect soundtrack. If the mood strikes to become social or to head out for a meal, there are good choices to meet most tastes on the island, with the South Fork a brief ferry ride away. Shelter Island Hideaway was the perfect respite for my two teenagers daughter and myself - relaxing and inspiring in a charming, zen-like setting.
