    Our family enjoyed our time at Starfish Cottage. The house was laid out well and very spacious for our family of 12. All one level is nice for anyone with mobility issues who can’t do stairs. Furniture was comfortable and very clean. The kitchen was very adequate as we did most of our meals at the house. The private pool was very convenient – outside BBQ grill worked well. Had an issue with the HVAC but it was resolved within 24 hours of notice. Golf cart functionality was not something we could depend on, so make sure you take your cell phone in case you get stranded like we did 🙁 Private beach access is convenient but kind of overrated; it is about a 10 minute walk and golf cart isn’t real helpful as it has to be parked like a car. We drove to 2 other beaches that were real nice: Dune Allen & Blue Mountain. Went out to eat at “Another Broken Egg” – great brunch place! Grocery store shopping was convenient with Whole Foods, Publix or Walmart all within 15 minutes.

    We had a great vacation time in Florida and this property met our needs nicely.

    My family and I enjoyed our stay at Starfish Cottage from May 28-June 6, 2016. The house was very spacious, clean, and tastefully decorated. The pool and patio are a nice addition to the home. We all enjoyed coming home from the beach to enjoy relaxing in the pool and grilling dinner. The golf cart, available for an extra fee, is another nice amenity to the home. Driving that cart about a block and a half to the beach access was not only fun, but also a lifesaver for my mom who has arthritis. The rental manager, Angela Moody, was very nice and accommodating to our needs. In addition to the home, the beach was gorgeous as always and the weather was perfect. My family and I would recommend this property and would stay again. Thanks so much.

    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!

    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.
