Loved how I could hear the waves when I went to sleep each night. So soothing. And the easy 2 blocks walk to the oceans edge and the peace and quiet. Loved it!!!!!
Jennifer H. Nov 2021
Small but perfect for 2 couples close to the beach. 2 queen beds and shared bath. Nice view. Gas fireplace. Very cozy and comfortable. We would stay again.

Close to an almost endless piece of the Pacific Ocean. Home is well equipped and comfortable.
Dien N. Jul 2021
Location is superb. Starfish’s deck is facing the ocean and wonderful. Improvement Opportunities: 1)Need a unit number (#3) on the unit to match up with the legal street address sent. 2) Tell the realtor not to show the unit when there is occupants in it and don’t lock renters out after the showing, very concerning, privacy issue 3) some fire ants around the kitchen. 4) Fix the rotten railing on the deck, someone may fall if leaned on. Other than that, great.
Manager response:
Hi, Dien! We are sorry for the issues you had during your stay. The property manager is working on your concerns to improve the guest experience. Thanks!
Debora B. Jun 2021

Kathryn P. Jun 2021
Close to Pacific Beach State park and the beach. Views of the ocean. Cozy cottage, clean, well decorated, good beds
Joel T. Jun 2021
Proximity to the beach. Cute, cozy and warm when it was chilly.
Tim j. Jun 2021
Small but comfortable house. Easy beach access. Had a great time!
Kellean F. May 2021
This is a cute, well located cottage. It needs to have a heavy clean done. The bathroom sink was clogged, the floors were not clean and the pots and pans have lost the coating. Be sure to bring bed pillows. The two I was given were both completely flat. The outside grounds were very well kept up and are lovely.
Manager response:
Hi, Kellean! We do apologize for the disappointment you experienced during your stay. We appreciate your review and will see to it that your feedback reaches the appropriate staff. We do hope you'll give us another chance to impress you in the future.

Small but sweet little cottage perfect for our family of three plus one dog. A few small upgrades could make this one 5 stars. We overpacked on kitchen items after reading previous reviews regarding the kitchen supplies, but it was not lacking except for some ancient saute pans that were scary to use (losing Teflon coating). If you love coffee, you might want to bring a french press or plan on make several pots, and the coffee pot is currently a tiny 4-cup hotel size. We loved the enclosed deck, and the large front windows made the place feel much bigger than it might have otherwise. The provided doggie food/water bowls were a nice touch. The decor is beachy, but not tacky. Overall, a really wonderful stay.
Lisa M. Apr 2021
My husband and I found it so relaxing here. You can see the water from the main room. And the beach is beautiful here. We so enjoyed walking on the beach each day. Good set up for cooking, games, relaxing and reading. If you don't feel like cooking there are several wonderful choices nearby for breakfast, lunch, dinner, great coffee and snacks. We will definitely be back!
Letty A. Mar 2021
Location to beach was perfect! Cute little cottage, nice for a weekend getaway!
Phyllis R. Mar 2021
We really enjoyed our stay at this adorable little beach cottage with the cozy gas fireplace and beachy décor. It's just a short walk to a nice beach next to the state park. There were few people around and that's exactly what we were looking for. The coffee shop on the corner was handy as well. It was a very relaxing stay for the two of us and our doggie. We always appreciate a pet friendly home.
Chris L. Jan 2021
As advertised. East beach access. Warm and lots of natural light. The change to a 10 am checkout is only downside.
Jason P. Jan 2021
We really enjoyed our stay! The weather was quite wild but the view of the water was great, the decently stocked kitchen was perfect for our part of 2 needs and the extendable table was great for doing a puzzle. The fire place is a great addition for maximum coziness.
Carol A. Dec 2020
Great location. A quick walk to the beach, coffee and pastries. Condo is very comfortable and bright. Security of deck for our dog was a bonus.
Katherine B. Nov 2020
We loved staying at this house. It was only a block to the beach and you can see the beach from the porch and living room. It had all we needed in the kitchen, Wi-Fi, and comfortable furnishings. Would love to go back!
Cori D. Oct 2020
This home feels good the minute you go through the door! The southern exposure and view out to the waves breaking on the beach are lovely. The decor is perfect for the setting. We loved it here. Of all the towns along this stretch of the coast, Pacific Beach was definitely our favorite. If you need any special equipment for the kitchen, you may want to bring it with you. It is adequately supplied. It is very clean. We were surprised with the DVD player and many movies available. The location is just superb being a 2 minutes walk from Pacific Beach State Park.
Sandy J. Oct 2020
We really enjoyed our stay. It was very warm and inviting.
Karen D. Oct 2020
The house is comfortable, with a wonderful view. The beach and access is right across the street. We had a great time and look forward to coming back.
Louise W. Aug 2020
Exactly what we wanted - to get away from the hustle and bustle of work/life and unwind listening to the waves and seeing that gorgeous ocean view.
Heather M. Aug 2020
Our family of 4 plus pup loved are stay! We will definitely be back. It did NOT smell at all like a dog house. :) Was nice and clean. Such a great location and the front porch is SO inviting. Close to everything. Kitchen is bare bones, so come prepared!
Amanda M. Jul 2020
The location, the deck, the fireplace.
Jessica G. Jun 2020
I really appreciated the random kid friendly puzzles the house had. My 2 year old loved them. One set of shades were broken but we were fine with it. The location is perfect and the deck was great. Super clean.
Kim m. Jun 2020
This is a really nice cabin with a big front porch with an ocean view in a little vacation town. Loved The location a block from the beach made a nice walk and all of the amenities provided made our stay really nice and relaxing for Father’s Day weekend!
Lou K. Jun 2020
Clean, comfortable, great place to kick back. Deck with view of the Pacific just a block away is awesome. The walk to the beach easy and close by. We stayed here this past Christmas. Wanted to see the place in better weather. Did not disappoint. We will return again.
Melanie M. Jun 2020
The Starfish cottage was just perfect for my 2 daughters, our dog and me. We had a wonderful and relaxing getaway there with all the comforts of home. We really loved how close the cottage was to the beach, and the fantastic view of the ocean out the front windows.
Darby M. May 2020
This was a great little place for a mini getaway. Great view & a great little porch out front for coffee.
Theresa G. May 2020
Great stay and close to the beach
sally p. May 2020
This cottage was clean, cute and a few steps from the trail to the beach. We had a perfect vacation at a perfect location.
Kayla B. Feb 2020
Great little cottage! Equipped with everything you need for a relaxing beach weekend!
Heather P. Feb 2020
Perfect weather!!! The unit was super clean, close to the beach, pet friendly, cute decor!!! Would definitely visit again!

The whole house was cute, loved the view from the wall of windows. Will come again. Loved the fact that we could bring our furbaby with us. Thank you so much.
Heather L S. Jan 2020
It was a cozy place, close to the beach, short walk. Had everything we needed there.
Tracy W. Jan 2020
Location and view was wonderful
Matthew B. Dec 2019
Starfish is the best Pacific Beach location. Beautiful views that's the Pacific Ocean. A great retreat, and refuge.
Lou K. Dec 2019
My wife, I, and the dog decided to spend Christmas at the beach, down from the Auburn area. Great size for us. Quiet, great view to the ocean a block away. The unit was fantastic! We plan to spend a week later this year. Short on personal storage if you travel heavy, but perfect for our needs
Kelli S. Nov 2019
Very cute and comfy! Will def book again!
Amy D. Nov 2019
Very clean and bright. I would definitely go back and stay again
Colleen L. Oct 2019
This cottage was everything I had hoped for. So cozy bright and warm on a chilly October morning. Loved the charming beach decorations, the gas fireplace and the big windows facing the beach. Loved how close and accessible the beach was. I would definitely like to return.
MJudith S. Sep 2019
Really loved coming here "off season". Walked the beach every day; watched kite flyers. Bright, welcoming home with big windows on a quiet street. Beds very comfortable.
Gail C. Sep 2019
We really enjoyed our stay in Starfish. The cottage was cute beachy, clean and new. Love the landscaped courtyard and the short path to the beach. We stayed 9/9-9/10 and practically had the beach all to ourselves which our dog just loved. The area is low key but had a great convenience store so we made use of the kitchen. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.
Angie B. Sep 2019
This cottage was exactly what we hoped for when booking or anniversary trip to the coast with our dogs. Quiet and on the corner, this cottage was literally walking distance from the beach and a coffee shop. The gated deck was a perfect match for our dogs. They spent most of our stay out on the deck. The place was clean and cute but we still covered the furniture so our dogs wouldn't get anything dirty. Only downside was that there's no AC. Other than that we loved it!
Beverly D. Sep 2019
Home is very nice. Need to do a little maintenance. Like fix blinds and trim hedge so you can see beach
Manager response:
Hello Beverly, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We have notified our local management team to address these issues. We do hope we can host you again in the future.
Jane B. Sep 2019
The grounds haven't bee touch since the last time we were there at the beginning of May. The deck needs serious attention!
David H. Sep 2019
Clean, great layout, great location. No problems.
Claudia F. Aug 2019
Loved the house and location. The only thing is that it could be better cleaned.
Margaret L. Aug 2019
We loved our time at the Starfish. Cute cottage and decorations and a lovely view. One fix we would recommend is fixing the slow drains and plug in the bathroom - minor issues.
Deborah K H. Aug 2019
House was great. Very clean and comfortable.
Gail R. Aug 2019
Weather was great, we always enjoy the cottages, good place for dogs on beach.
Charlotte G. Jul 2019
Close to the beach. Comfortable for the dogs.
Neat and clean.
SUSAN A. Jul 2019
Very close to the beach, quiet and very comfortable. Nice private outdoor space with deck and patio.
Kristine S. Jun 2019
Super beach very close, ocean views. In the heart of tiny town with Surf Cafe ice cream a block away.
Cabin living room and kitchen spacious. These alone, and the dog proof vinyl flooring sold me. Matching bedrooms small with window blinds that don't block all the light and not stellar pillows. For the reasonable fee, worth bringing your own
Brad and Sandra G. Jun 2019
We love Pacific Beach as a get-away from the city. Our week at the Starfish was wonderful! The accommodations were decorative, clean, convenient, and comfortable. Perfect!
Theresa K. Jun 2019
So cozy and right by the beach! Very clean and comfortable!
Kayla B. May 2019
Clean and cozy! Had everything we needed. Would absolutely stay again.
DOUG S. Apr 2019
We have stayed at several places along the north coast, and none had a better view and easier access than Starfish. It was awesome! The big bright windows let in a LOT of light, which was perfect, and we could watch the waves even when it was raining. The places did need a few repairs, but we had a wonderful time. Thank you!
Kacey . Mar 2019
A beautiful space, cozy and comfortable and a great view. Close to the charming town of Seabrook and a short walk to the beach. Everything was neat and tidy and inviting! For your consideration there are no closets or dresser space at the moment so that may be something to think about when packing, however it did not affect our experience in the slightest. Again 5/5 stars would highly recommend and I would stay again!
Shannon M. Feb 2019
Cottage was perfect for our weekend. Has everything you should need to do as much or as little as you want.
D.J. . Feb 2019
This is a great location - a block away from the beach. It was a joy to hear the ocean all times of the day. We visited during the off season so very quiet and relaxing. Definitely plan ahead and bring books, games, etc for yourself and any kids, just in case the WiFi is finicky due to weather. We were surprised to stay in a place without closets so plan ahead(new management says they are working on a plan). Overall, seven days at this Airbnb met our expectations.
Tami . Dec 2018
great view and easy access to beach. Loved the fenced in porch for the pup
Mary C. Oct 2018
The Starfish is very clean and comfortable. The sun coming in through the front windows felt so good on the brisk October days.
