Welcome to our Long Island home!
Experience suburban bliss in this charming 3 bedroom house in Massapequa Park, Long Island. Enjoy a spacious 1700 sq ft 3-bedroom home, 5 level home that is within easy reach of Manhattan, nestled between the big city and leisurely Hamptons.
Our home is located in the south shore of Long Island, right smack in the CENTER of the Island, a quick drive to most towns like Plainview, Seaford, Glen Cove, Manhasset, Dix hills, Merrick, Lindenhurst, Amityville, Jericho, Woodbury and other surrounding towns. The Hamptons is a 90 minutes drive, Wineries of North Fork is also a 90 minutes drive, and a big plus is you can walk to the LIRR station to catch a train to Manhattan. Yes, a walk and it's very convenient.
Breathe in the clean air that surrounds with nature, hear birds chirping in the morning with a cup of coffee/tea on hand, perhaps have breakfast on our deck in the warmer months. The house is decorated made for casual living, with a tuscan feel, lots of reds, yellows and greens, with super gleaming floors, and browse in our 1000+ books collection and be inspired to conquer the world. There are tapestries, and paintings all over the house that reminds us of a time and place and lovingly collected in our travels abroad.
Start your day with a cup of coffee or tea in our open floor plan quaint newly renovated kitchen facing the deck, even on cloudy and rainy days, the skylight gives off so much energy and natural light, it's incredible.
If you are a fan of landscapes, our den powder room has been hand-painted with a floor-to-ceiling rustic palette, reminding us of a beautiful landscape in the Hudson Valley, upstate New York. A local decorative artist was commissioned to paint this room, and the end result is simply stunning!
In keeping up with our love for travel, the house has been imbued with an aesthetic that is fresh, open and eclectic, with European, Middle Eastern and a little bit of Asian influences. All rooms entice with comfort, color and the promise of sensual delights. This is a home designed for family gatherings, with guests in mind, where comfort reigns and where guests are meant to feel immediately at ease. Nothing is too serious here. We hope you'll enjoy our Long Island home as much as we have.

If you are looking to stay on Long Island, in a lovely home, in a perfect location, accessible to city and coast, look no further - we think this is the perfect place.
It is really lovely and has absolutely everything you could ask for.
Massapequa Park is close by and has a supermarket, restaurants and nice shops. The railroad station is just down the road and offers access to NYC one way and to Montauk to the other. Jones Beach is 15-20 minutes in the car and has a gorgeous sandy beach and facilities; we saw dolphins on our last day.
Carol is really nice and professional and we loved everything about the home and we hope to visit again in 2018. We would give this A+, 10/10, all just marvellous. We've been visiting the US and Europe for years and this is the best place we have ever stayed.
We we in NY for a family reunion. We stayed at Carol's Massapequa home. It was a beautiful house and property. Very clean and well appointed. We had two families staying, 4 adults and 4 kids.
There was plenty of room for us to spread out, even extra space in the basement, so everyone had a quiet place if they needed it. Since we were there for almost a week, it would have been nice to have something to unpack into, but we had so much room, it was nice to not feel like we were on top of each other. The kids loved playing in the lower family room. Lots of games available and spaces to play.
Carol was great and provided a double blow up mattress which we were able to move where we wanted. This enabled us to give the kids options on where they slept each night. There were plenty of extra sheets and blankets.
The kitchen was great to cook in. For our families we could have used more cups and bowls, but there were plenty of cutlery and plates. Every condiment and spice you could think of! Cupboards were well stocked.
The backyard was lovely, we loved sitting out on the deck. We were able to get to the city and the beach and visit our family. There is a shopping mall right across the way. We stopped for some great pizza in town and bought fresh ravilois one day.
We were very happy we had a lovely home to come back to each day!
This is a beautiful home and has been lovingly taken care of! We very much enjoyed our stay. It was close to everything but secluded enough to be nice and quiet. The landscaping is beautiful too. The homeowners have put a lot of time and love into this home.
