    My boyfriend + I absolutely loved our weekend at the Starfish Cottage. The location was perfect and the golf cart was a nice touch since we had lots of beach equipment! The House was clean + welcoming while still not feeling like we were borrowing a strangers house. It was really nice to go back and cool off in the pool after a day at the beach. I would 10/10 go back again! Also surrounded by great local restaurants!

    8/5/17-8/9/17 We came with 6 adults and 3 kids, everyone love the house. Spaces, clean, good location. We need to run the dryer few times to get the clothes dry, beside that everything else works probably.

    The property was very well taken care of. The furnishings were in good condition with exception of the black living room couches that are in need of being replaced. There were more than enough seating options. The kitchen was equipped with anything you may need down to a crockpot. The pool floats and beach toys were a nice surprise. The proximity to the beach was a nice quiet walk on the gated community sidewalk or a quick ride on the bikes provided. We also rented the golf cart for the week and would definitely recommend it. It made it easy to transport our beach gear as well as a fun ride around town. The pool was perfect for our family not too big and not too small. We will surely be back.

    The house itself was wonderful. It was extremely clean, nicely decorated, and well-equipped. The only complaint I have with in the house, all of the beds were extremely uncomfortable!

    The private pool was nice but extremely small!

    The location is a little more than just a short stroll to the beach. It is a little over a mile to the gate that leads you to the beach. and with young children it was not convenient. Had I known the true distance, I never would have booked the house.

    Overall we enjoyed our stay! It is a wonderful house but unfortunately, due to location and pool size, we would not rent again.
