We had a great stay at this awesome place! We would come back again, for sure! Thanks for everything!
Carlos place was very well set up. We were there over Xmas, not a beach vacation, and it was warm and toasty when we arrived. I look forward to a summer stay there when we can use the pool. Carlo was great with getting me a key even though he was out of town.
Beautiful home, great communication from Carlo. Lovely stay. Great kitchen!
Carlo's Place was absolutely wonderful for our family holiday gathering. Beautifully appointed kitchen for cooking our meals, comfortable surroundings for visiting and relaxing, and thoughtful touches that added to a lovely visit and experience.
Carlo was the perfect host, professional, warm and accommadating. His beach house was absolutely amazing - high-end renovations and well stocked with everything you could ever imagine. Perfect location - 5 minute drive to the beach, 8 minutes to a beautifule wildlife refuge, perfect for hiking, birding, nature walks and canoe/kayaking. We would love to return summer, spring or fall.
Carlo was a wonderful host- the house was exactly as described, very clean, and close to the beach! Would definitely recommend Carlo and would stay there again.
This is the perfekt spot to live
close to the ocean/ beaches, Hamptons, New York
GREAT house and garden and pool,
super help and communication with Carlo
would love to stay here again - anytime
Best loaction at airbnb I had up to now. Very clean, near to the beach. The apartment has a very nice pool, which was the absolute favourite place of my son. Me and my wife loved most the convenient veranda with the great barbecue grill. Inside of the apartment it's also a dream. Carlo is a great host. We surely come back on our next trip to the USA.
We stayed at Carlo's place for seven days during july and we absolutely loved it. It was even possible for us to stay one more night which was great!
Carlo was really helpfull with informations about the area and has a very good taste when it comes to decorate an appartement.
It's an amazing place for those who just want to chill out and relax, maybe unwind from all the stress around.
We spent our time, sitting around the pool, swimming and occasionally left the house to go to the beach, but we had everything we wanted allready there so we stayed in most of the time.
The Kitchen is very richly equipped, we found everything we needed and even more. And despite the bad weather at the beginning, we enjoyed every meal out on the balcony.
Overall it was an amazing experience staying at carlo's place. We definitely recommend everybody to spend some relaxing days in Shirley.
Five stars says it all. Carlo was very good to work with and responsive. Home is exactly as represented in the posting...maybe even a bit better (seemed larger in person than in the photos. No wide angle lens I guess ;-)
I think this location is great both for hanging at the pool or heading to the beach, which was very easy to access by car (5min) and an easy bike ride, too.
Bravo, and thanks!
