C-Shells is the perfect get away. It was peaceful, the quarters we darling, the grounds are, without a doubt , some of the most beautiful we experienced on our honeymoon. The hammock is so peaceful, and Cheryl and Jorge couldn't have been more helpful. Will definitely return

We stayed at CShells for a week and it was wonderful! The rooms are clean, comfortable and have a small kitchen. The central location on Long Island made it easy to get to various places. We enjoyed being so close to the water and having a fire on the beach at night as we watched the sunset!

The owners are gracious hosts. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The beach and views great. Loved swimming, snorkeling and paddle boarding. Having a fire at night on the beach was very relaxing. I will definitely visit again!! This place is nice and quite. Just about anywhere you go you practically have the beaches all to yourself.

C Shells continues to provide exactly what we need when wandering off the beaten path. Wonderful accommodations, centrally located on the island, with its own private beach.
