The house was aptly described as an oasis. It exuded warmth and serenity, particularly the kitchen/living area. It had all the conveniences of home and Carol thoughtfully stocked it with groceries and emergency toiletries as well. It was my first time in the area and she picked me up on my arrival and showed me around. The house is very conveniently located for public transport. I needed a week of peace and quiet and the house was perfect for it. And Carol is a very considerate host who goes out of her way to make sure her guests have everything they need. Thank you again.

Fantastic place to stay in New Bedford. Short drive into town. King size beds were a nice touch and plenty of people could stay there. Communication was great as well.

We loved the little details... sodas,snacks,cold water in fridge etc. Very nice and clean. Prompt responses,etc. Did not get a chance to meet Carol but she was always ready to assist if needed. Overall great stay. Well worth recommending to any friends or family. Thank you so much for allowing us to stay at your place.

Response from Carol:
Gary tells me I need to leave some instructions for the TV and I will write & post some now. Also there is one flight of stairs to reach the unit and then in side the unit there is a flight of stair to the second level bed and bath but a bed and bath is available on the first level without needing to use stairs inside unit. Sorry about the stairs.

Lovely place to stay that was convenient to our activities in South Dartmouth. Lots of space, easy parking, peaceful vibe. Carol provided thoughtful touches throughout. Most delightfully, the host was clear and prompt in her communication, without overdoing it. It was everything we could have hoped for!

My husband, parents, baby, and I stayed here for the weekend for a wedding in the area. The place is quite spacious, clean, and very quiet with everything you need. And Carol was quickly responsive to questions. We'd recommend to anyone needing a place to stay in the area!

Spacious, clean, quiet, secure, only a few minutes away from many things to do and see in and around New Bedford. At first, we had difficulty understanding how to use the on demand hot water heater, but Carol was immediate and kind in teaching us, and didn't make us feel like we just got off the hay-wagon. I recommend Carol's place to anyone who wants to explore the New Bedford area, or to use New Bedford's central location to see the many, many things within an hours drive or less. Although we didn't use the kitchen, it is well equipped for those who like to cook and prefer to eat at home.

I am so glad your friends enjoyed their stay. I can't take all of the credit. Ms Santos is my right hand lieutenant and she made sure the stay was special.
