Vacay at the beach ....
The Starfish cottage is darling , decorated to a T . Very clean , only problem was the description states there is a/c which there is not . The house is very muggy even with the windows open and the fans on and it was a little difficult to sleep comfortably Otherwise it was great .

5/5 Excellent

Great Stay
Our family of three enjoyed staying at this property very much. The location is walkable to everything in Old Town and the neighborhood is very quiet. The host was very responsive and welcoming and the property was clean and well-maintained. We definitely hope to return!

Meets all your wants & needs
We stayed at the Starfish Cottage Jul 6-10, 2020 with 2 adults and 3 kids (16, 10, 7). It fit us all very comfortably and was clean and tidy. Owners are very thoughtful and kind. They greeted us to show all amenities. The kitchen was well stocked. Ample towels and linens were appreciated. The house has a great front porch with side alleys and a back shared patio with a cool surfboard shower to rinse off sand. We forgot to bring our umbrella, chairs and sand toys, so I was delighted they had plenty to borrow. Street parking was necessary because our large SUV was too tight for the garage, but it was pretty easy to find places anytime we drove. Cottage is a short walk to beach and Main Street. Overall beautiful home in a beautiful location - we would definitely book again!
