Guestbook comments from the owner

Having spent just a day at Sunshine Bungalow, I still couldn't recommend this place highly enough. If you are planning a quick weekend getaway or just looking for a nice beautiful vacation house in Shelter Island, you wouldn't be disappointed. The rooms are clean and well equipped and there's a peaceful and beautiful garden. Great location and a very nice host!

Needs some work, but an ok start

  • 3 of 5

While the house and grounds are in great shape and fine for a couple or small family, the owners have to do some work in terms of equipping the house for rental. A similar comment was made by a prior renter. I'd expect things like: a microwave, a toaster, drip coffee maker, platters, cutting board, kitchen knives, washcloths, dishcloths, not to mention some kind of lighting in the bedrooms.

Owner's Response: Your feedback is very much appreciated, Josh! Firstly, I apologize for any inconvenience that it has brought you. As we're just new to renting out the house, there's always a room for improvement and we highly take into account our guests' reviews. Recently, we've already added more kitchenware such as bowls, knives, chopping boards and the like. Oven/toaster will be added soon as well. We are also outlining plans to renovate further for guests' convenience. Regarding the coffee, there is a Nespresso coffee machine in there, not sure why this was not enjoyed by your group. For the lighting, there was an issue with the wall switch at that time but the remote was working otherwise and was answered in the message. Nevertheless, rest assured we'd make sure the house will be ready with more stuffs esp. for the next peak summer season. Thank you again! :)

Shelter Island bungalow

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay at the bungalow. It's kept very well, has great outdoor space, and loved the bikes as a means of transportation on the island. Definitely spacious enough for the four of us, although in order to share a bathroom between four people, it's best to be close. If there was one improvement to be had, it would be the kitchen: the equipment is limited, and cuts down on the amount of cooking one is able to do. But for a long weekend, with so many little spots to visit on Shelter Island, there's really no need!
