About Eva Carbonaro

My husband Steve and I fell in love with the Cape many years ago. We found ourselves drawn back time after time, driving through the night with our two boys still in their pajamas in the back seat looking forward to the relaxing days by the beach we would spend together.

Five years ago we decided to make Cape Cod our home. I am still discovering new and beautiful places, and smile when I drive along Route 6A past the rambling roses and hydrangeas bursting with blooms. I look forward to the changes that each new season brings. The long, lazy days of Summer... the color of the leaves in Fall and the crackling sound of the first fire in our fireplace. The beauty and tranquility of the first snowfall in winter, and waking up one morning after a long Spring rain and noticing that all is green again.

We found our little cottage by the sea and spent the winter of 2010 designing and building our vision of the perfect Cape Cod get-away. Having rented before, we wanted to create a place where you could relax, unwind and enjoy from the minute you arrived. I hope you too will have many happy memories of sun-filled days and starlit nights and find as many reasons to fall in love with Cape Cod as we did!

Wonderful Time

  • 5 of 5

It was such a pleasure to stay at Sonny by the Sea. Each detail made the cottage so warm and welcoming. I am having my home remodeled and use the cottage as a stay vacation. Location is excellent! Close by is a great coffee shop Nirvana and market. Quick trip to Hyannis and one of my favorite destinations for bread- Pain D'Avignon. The fish market, Osterville 2, had delicious fish.

What I loved most was the comfort of the cottage, the great front porch and back deck, the beach and sunsets. It is a special place. Eva, the owner, is fantastic and will help you in anyway. There were great suggestions on things to do and wonderful books on the Cape. It was truly a home away from home! Thanks Eva , everything was wonderful.

Perfect Everything!

  • 5 of 5

I originally chose this cottage as a girls' getaway weekend thank you gift to my mom for helping me plan my July'16 wedding. It was the perfect size for the two of us and great location. Eva (the owner) had emailed us a long list of activity suggestions before we arrived to kind of give us the lay of the land since neither of us had been to Cape Cod prior. Once we arrived we were blown away by how quaint the outside of the cottage was but even more pleasantly surprised once we entered. The layout was perfect and decor looked Home & Garden magazine-worthy.

The location was perfect - a 3 minute walk to whale watching (which we highly recommend - we saw 13 whales extremely close to our boat), the beach only a short walk away and Hyannis, not even a 5 minute car ride away. It truly was the perfect weekend and this cottage felt like home at the end of our 2.5 day stay. We actually looked forward to going back and relaxing on the front porch with a glass of wine. Eva was a delight to work with and secure our reservation and if we decide to go back to the Cape (which we are already talking about doing), we would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Thank you Eva!

Sonny by the sea was a clean cozy comfortable cottage. The owner has decorated it beautifully and practically for a wonderful vacation at the beach. The cottage was a short walk to the beach in a quiet neighbourhood. There are shops and a coffee bar within walking distance. We loved it and would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a Cape Cod vacation place to rest from the many activities available. Barnstable is centrally located to many sights and beaches and activities like whale watching or a trip to the islands. We like this part of the Cape and this property has all you need and more for a wonderful stay. Truly it was like staying at a friend's place as it was welcoming and radiated a warm and inviting atmosphere. we give Donny by the Sea a double thumbs up... we loved it and would love ❤️ to return again.

Sonny by the Sea is Awesome

We really enjoyed our stay in Cape Cod. The cottage is cute, nicely decorated, and located in a great location. Our host was very attentive and a joy to work with. We will definitely return.

Liebevoll eingerichtetes Ferienhäuschen im traumhaften Cape Cod

  • 5 of 5

Meine Frau, meine Tochter und ich hatten wundervolle 5 Tage auf Cape Cod im sehr liebevoll und vollständig eingerichteten Ferienhäuschen von Eva. In 3 Minuten zu Fuß am Strand oder am Hafen, von wo aus man eine beeindruckende Whale-Watching-Tour machen kann. Die fünf Tage waren, um Cape Cod ausreichend kennen zu lernen, definitiv zu kurz. Einkaufsmöglichkeiten findet man per Auto entweder direkt im Dorf (Barnstable) zu etwas höheren Preisen oder in größeren Supermärkten Nähe Hyannis in ca. 10 Minuten per Auto. Neben der vollständigen Hauseinrichtung finden sich auch ein Sonnenschirm sowie zwei Strandstühle für den Strand. Aber auch Regenschirm und Regencapes sind vorhanden. Versorgt wird man von Eva zusätzlich mit hilfreichen und individuell u.a. auf das Alter des Kindes zusammengestellte Tipps für Sonnen- und Regentage. Bezahlung und Rückzahlung der Kaution funktioniert problemlos und schnell.

My husband and I had a wonderful week in Sonny by the Sea. Great location, quiet neighborhood, cottage has very cozy feel. Walked to the beach, road bikes into town (great coffee shop, diner and well stocked market) and a central location for all of our excursions. We boiled lobsters and shucked oysters on the front porch! This was my first visit to the Cape and I know we'll be back.
