The staff was very friendly and helpful. The dockhands were very attentive to arriving boats to help them dock. Many times they were getting on the boats that were already in slips to fend off when boats attempting to dock were having trouble. The stay was very peaceful and relaxing. There were a few maintenance issues, the bathroom/shower facility for the marina had no towel or clothing hooks so when you took a shower there was no place to hang your clothes and towel except to put them in the sink. It looked like there had been one there in the past as there were holes in the wall outside the shower stall. In the bathroom/ pool-house the urinal was broken for days. It was covered with a large black plastic bag. There was a fundraiser party on Friday for the Shelter Island Fireworks, so you had two to three hundred people using that bathroom and it had one working toilet in the men's room. Towel hooks and broken urinals shouldn't go unaddressed for four days. The restroom/ shower facility for the marina should be expanded, to have one toilet and one shower as a single use facility meant if one person was taking a shower there was no access to the toilet. A few minor issues but when you are paying top dollar for a transient slip you should expect the facilities to be top notch as well.
