Sweet Shell-ter

Our stay at Sweet Shell-yet was great. The house is beautiful and equipped with everything you need. There are two decks where we spent a lot of time enjoying the view. The owners were very responsive. They even left us an ice cream treat in the freezer which my grandchildren loved. I would recommend this house to anyone.

Thank you, Martha! We are so happy you all enjoyed your stay at Sweet Shell-Ter and that your grandchildren liked the ice cream treats. We certainly hope you will come back and visit again. Kind regards, Sheila Lanier

Peaceful retreat

Sweet Shell-ter was perfect! It was clean, kitchen was beyond stocked with every piece of glassware we needed. The views from the porches where priceless. The house is a home that was built with detail. The Window in the stairwell had views to the ocean and of course the elevator gave our in laws and easy trip to each floor. The decor was soothing. A family member said “it’s like vacationing in the Hamptons”. I loved the area and the house felt like home. We will return to our Sweet Shell-Ter!
