"With temperatures in the 90’s it seemed like a prefect weekend to head to Hood Canal. Starfish Studio Cottage was perfect. The cabin’s interior is dark because of the paneling but once the many wonderful windows are thrown open it lightens right up. We never closed them, not even during a stormy (lighting/thunder) day or in the evenings. (There were no mosquitoes) If you are the type that needs to take a break from heat the interior was always pleasantly cool. The house is situated so that our north deck with table and chairs had sun from early morning until 5 pm. For the two of us, there was plenty of room to leave the Murphy Bed down and still easily move around the cottage. The canal is just 6-8 steps down a concert stairway and was warm enough for swimming and there are oysters everywhere for the picking. During our slack tide times you do notice highway noise and the seals can make some pretty rude sounds during the night. Our first night we saw a 6 otters at play on the up turned row boat float and the highest number of seals out on the submerged float numbered 13! Our neighbors were great. One recommended the burgers at the Eagle Creek Saloon and the other recommend the hike and swim at the falls in Dosewallipis State park. For particular sleepers note that Suzanne uses feather pillows which can be squishy and the mattress is on the softer side. Kitchen was great, big sink, good stove and good sized fridge. There is a full dry spice rack, some basics: corn oil, vinegar etc in the cupboard and a good sharp knife. Bigger coffee cups would be a plus! Thanks Suzanne!"

"We had the BEST time! A home away from home, beautiful drive, great weather, well stocked waterfront home with hot tub. Do yourself a favor and stay here, you will be so happy you did. Fun for all ages."

"This condo is one of the best we've ever rented. From the décor, to the nicely equipped kitchen, to the well-stocked supplies, this place is top notch. When we arrived, we found Kleenex in dispensers, plenty of toilet tissue, dish detergent, dishwashing liquid, laundry detergent, and even Shout for stain removal. Sunrise, when clear, is an awesome event! Bedding is beautiful and very comfortable. Plenty of room for the three of us, and even enough space to entertain our extended family. The living space comfortably fit 7 adults and two small children for "Game Day." My only issue was the noise from busy Route 3, however, the noise does not prevent a quiet night's sleep. I would definitely rent this place again. Thank you, Rosanne."
