We had an amazing time in Carlos and Erikas wonderful house!
We came with our two girls (1 and 3) and we felt right at home. The house is beautifully decorated and perfectly organized. You will always find what you need! Even toys are there and everything is clearly labeled!
Carlos is a wonderful host who thought about everything in advance and is very quick to reply to messages.
The house is located in beautiful woods hole, a perfect place for a family vacation. The playground behind the house fulfilled all our needs and the beach is very close by. Btw Stoney beach is actually a sandy beach and is very very nice! All the recommendations Carlos made in advance were great and we especially loved the pie in the sky and landfall restaurant!
I can highly recommend this house and I hope we'll have a chance to come back!
We had a fabulous stay at this cottage!!! It was even nicer than the pictures! A little piece of Heaven ! There was a delicious jar of jelly to welcome us ! There were plenty of linens and towels , the beds were very comfortable , we couldn't have asked for anything more!The cottage is perfect! Thank you so much for your beautiful cottage , we enjoyed it a whole lot!! The hosts are wonderful , easy to get in touch with , we would definitely recommend this cottage and we hope to be back one day! THANK YOU!
We were a group of 6 young adults and this house was perfect for us. Definitely is more family oriented, with kids bedrooms as displayed in the pictures, but it worked perfectly for our group as well. The location is a 5 minute walk to the beach, and less than 10 minute walk to the main strip of shops and restaurants. Also easy access to the ferry to both Nantucket and Martha's vineyard. The pictures are exactly how the house looks. We had a great stay!
The host was very accommodating especially when I asked if we could check in earlier than 3PM and he actually got the house ready the night before and told me we were welcome as early as the night prior. That was awesome. The pictures do not do this house justice, one of those things you have to see for yourself. The house is spacious, well organised and yes, PRISTINE!.
Location was perfect to get to Martha's Vineyard and close to Hyannis port and all the little small towns around. The local town was a KM away and so much great food. Me and my 3 other girlfriends fell in love with this place and Carlos' home made the experience all the more amazing !
We had a wonderful stay! Carlos and Erika have a beautiful house in which we felt right at home and were very responsive in communications. There were wonderful little touches throughout the house that demonstrate the care that they put into their home and making guests comfortable. Woods Hole was a great little community with plenty of family friendly activities. Had such a great time and hope to be back again soon!
I honestly don't know where to start!
Carlos is the best host I have encountered on airbnb so far. His house was indeed "pristine" and exactly as described. Carlos was extremely responsive to the emails I sent him, usually replying within 10 minutes and checking in and out was a breeze. When we asked for a couple of hours for a late check out Carlos offered us to stay a couple extra days at no cost! Now, that's customer service at its best!
The location was perfect for our family and we walked everywhere! Thank you for this amazing week! We will find a way to come back or at least tell our friends about you! ¡Muchísima gracias a usted, su familia y Annalisa, por supuesto!

About the Host, Carlos
My heart goes to Woods Hole, where Erika, our two boys and myself have our true home. We live now in México City.
We tried to make our vacation home uncluttered and simple, not an easy task on the age of ebay and e-commerce. A good kitchen is a blessing for us, and here in México we learned how to make tortillas from scratch, so we try to put it to good use.
