The Starfish Cottage


Great Place! – 5 Stars

“It was more than we expected, everything that we needed was there! The house was very roomy, plenty of room for 3 families, it was very clean and comfortable! We enjoyed the swimming pool it was the perfect size, not too big, not too small; especially after a long day at the beach it was nice to relax pool side. The outdoor shower was convenient, it made washing the sand off after the beach much easier, especially with kids. Overall, it was a great stay and vacation, we would recommend the starfish cottage to everyone! Almost forgot about the golf cart….AWESOME! We had a blast driving up and down beach road, which made lugging beach gear to and from the house quick and easy! Thanks Angela Moody and Starfish Cottage. We will be back!” – Jespher J.

Our Home Away From Home – 5 Stars

“Starfish has been our “home away from home” this winter season and we couldn’t be happier! The house is everything the listing description said it was and more. The decorations are stylish, furniture is high quality and comfortable (extremely important to us), and the stainless steel appliances and the granite counter tops give it an updated and current appearance. The beds are comfortable, the kitchen cupboards are well stocked with dishes, glasses and utensils and the towels, bed linens and bed coverings are of high quality, and in excellent condition. The layout of the house makes entertaining a breeze and we can’t wait to share it with our kids as they come to Destin to visit us. Having a dining room table that can seat 8 people is something that drew us to the house originally as was the additional seating possibilities of the great room. The high ceilings and the open layout gives the house an airy feeling. The house was very clean and comfortable when we arrived and is easy to take care of with the ceramic floors. The location to the beach is so convenient and is delightful for those who wish to take off for a walk. Having a garage is wonderful and the golf cart is a delight to scoot around on when warmer winter days (for us at least) present themselves. An extra perk are the bicycles in the garage to use for additional exercise. The back patio and deck are clean and neat and we often have morning coffee or lunch at the table by the pool. Although we cannot use the pool during the fall and winter months, it is nice to look at. The hot tub is a special delight, though, and its size and cleanliness is greatly appreciated! The property manager, Angela, has been and continues to be extremely helpful to us as we booked the property, as we moved in and as we continue through our stay. She is always available with a smile and answers questions or is available to us if a need arises. She is very professional, is extremely knowledgeable and is an excellent “people person” and communicator which contributes to her success as a property manager. She “gets the job done” and we appreciate her follow-through and timeliness. We are anxious to return to Starfish next fall and look forward to coming back to our “home away from home” in a few months.” – Sigrid and Arnie

Great Place to Stay – 5 Stars

“Stayed for a few days at the Starfish Cottage, was a great place to stay, very clean and nicely decorated, very comfortable. I was there with one other person but there were 4 bedrooms so would be good for families too. Nice pool with little waterfall in the back and stone patio with a grill, and nice hot tub out back too. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook with. It rained most of the days we were there, but we got to go to the beach a couple times, it was just a short walk to the subdivision’s private beach. Overall it was a very nice place to stay and I’d definitely stay there again next time I’m in Destin.” – Eddie Bliss

Starfish – 5 Stars

“We had a great stay at the starfish. House was clean, pool was nice. Golf cart is a must if taking a lot of stuff to the beach. Angela was very good to work with. Had a air issue at first and she had a guy there to fix it within the hour. Will definitely be looking to stay there again.” – R. Helton
