The whole place is full of charm! Everything you need is there from beach towels to umbrella and chairs. The furniture is super comfy and the porch is homey.

The house was the right size and close to the beach. Had the cozy old Florida feel. Love the porch!

Convenience to the beach was great. Quiet neighborhood was great for our three generations, two from each. House worked fine, great appliances and space, especially the screened porch.

We really enoyed our stay in the Starfish cottage. It was home from home.

We were a group of 5 adults and the beautiful house was just perfect! We felt home at once, loved sitting on the big nicely decorated porch.
The only thing I’d like to mention is, that the 2 beds upstairs are not made for tall people.
We enjoyed 3 wonderful days at the beach which is only a three minute walk away and would definitely come back!

This cottage was just what we were hoping for! It's very cozy and the beach decor is great. Our favorite was the screened in porch. The location is perfect, just a short walk to the beach, restaurants & shopping. Would love to return!

The cottage was lovely. We enjoyed the large screen porch and swing..many evenings spent rocking with my sweet family. The cottage is about a 2 minute walk to the beach and a 5 minute walk to Poppo's, The Doughnut Experience, The Creamery and the Sand Bar...our favorites. (Many other restaurants/shops within walking distance..) We did not love renting with Vacasa. They didn't answer their phone on numerous occasions. The door lock malfunctioned and we called for assistance, but could not get them to answer. Another Vacasa office in Iowa had to help us, but didn't have an emergency number. My husband had to walk all the way over to their office for assistance. When he arrived someone was there but still was not responding to phone calls. Also, called to receive information about tropical storm (never answered...after 20x finally had office pick-up after being routed all over tge US). Office thought I was on hold, but I could still hear them talking rudely about us to one another. Starfish cottage, you are lovely, but Vacasa-never again...never again..oh and cable does work in response to previous feedback.
Manager response:
We are very sorry to see this guest was disappointed with our services. We spoke with them several times prior to their arrival, and during these conversations the guest was informed the local office would be closed during their arrival due to the holiday. At that point in time we did have several agents on the phones assisting this guest with their various needs, and we also ended up sending local staff to the unit to assist them as needed. Thank you!

We really enjoyed our stay at Starfish. We rented bikes and a golf cart and went everywhere this way. We walked to Pine Street, to the great breakfast place on the corner Jinny and Jane E's, I think. Also Slim's the sports bar around the corner with incredibly good food!! No kidding. Had problem with AC not working when we arrived and Vacasa sent a very polite and sharp technician out immediately who fixed very efficiently!
It would have been nice if there was cable or satellite tv but this did not hinder our visit. Great stay!

I loved the large screened In Porch. The house was decorated well and definitely put you in the beach mood.

This is a great house. We love the exterior styling, the open floor plan on the 1st floor, homey feel, 2 very nicely finished bathrooms, superbly stocked, internet, bikes, etc!
