One of the best things to do in Shelter Island is to enjoy the beaches scattered throughout the region. Many of these are quiet and secluded, often feeling as though you have landed on a private beach. A local favorite is Crescent Beach.

— I love All the Rooms because instead of having to check one place for home rentals, another for hotel, another for bed and breakfasts, and yet another for a room rental in a private residence, I can finally see EVERYTHING at one site; saving me considerable time
— When I plan a trip, I no longer waste time visiting multiple websites in search of the best accommodations. Now, I just go to AllTheRooms and immediately find everything from luxury villas to pet-friendly rentals! All in one place
— My favorite thing about AllTheRooms is that it combines both rentals and hotels available so you can see an entire view of what is available in a certain area. I was able to see listings on AllTheRooms that I never even saw on other travel sites!
