About Gary and Julie Holloway
Gary and Julie Holloway West Plains, Mo, 65775 We have retired from business and have loved the Gulf Shores area for family vacations. We hope to have you visit our cottage and find the area as relaxing and fun as we do.
Gary and Julie Holloway purchased this House in 2017
Why Gary and Julie Holloway chose Gulf Shores
When Hurricane Ivan destroyed the previous beach house (Sunflowers) the former owner moved this house (Sea Stars Cottage) from the lagoon shore across the street to it's current site. Originally designed for a large family 2009 was the first season for us to be on a rental program. Beach life is unique, particularly if one is a naturalist... it is a certain paradise. This cottage provides ample space for a large family vacation.
What makes this House unique
The majestic and ever changing Gulf of Mexico serves up fresh scenery regularly, from aero-squadrons of pelicans soaring above to pods of dolphins passing daily. Fishing is excellent. Photo ops abound! Our white 'sugar sands' beach is unusual and occasionally gets written up as one of the worlds best beaches. Sea turtles nest here, mostly Loggerheads with a rare Ridley to be precise. We monitor the nests and assist in hatchings. Our guests are welcomed to watch these incredible proceedings. The house is expansive and is uniquely furnished with our guests' comfort and pleasure in mind. We hope you love it as much as we do!

Excellent house for a family retreat.
We have stayed at several Gulf Shores properties over the last 25 years. This was the best yet. Eight adults and an infant had ample room to be together and large bedrooms for quiet space. The kitchen was first rate, we cooked every meal here. The decks, beach equipment and grill were very good as well. Owner and staff responded within an hour to a text request and very helpful.
Amazing Sea Stars Cottage was the perfect choice for our family reunion!
The memories our 11 member extended family created at Sea Stars will last a lifetime! There were many other activities going on during our stay, but it was next to impossible to pry our grandkids off the beach here! This home has it all...eclectic beach decor, welcoming open layout, incredible views, fantastic kitchen, plenty of room to entertain both inside and out. Beach chairs and toys for guests' use was a big plus.
It is truly a home that makes you fall in love with it from the moment you step inside. Wish I had a dollar for every time one of us said "I LOVE this place." Hopefully we will be returning again and again. Cathy & Bill Burford
Fantastic Beach House
Sea Stars Cottage beach house is a great place to stay! My family and I stayed here during Labor Day weekend 2016 for our vacation and was amazed at all the amenities this house provided. Beach front views were fantastic with only steps away from the beach. Owner was great to work with! House was clean and layout was good for my family of 12. Kitchen has all utensils needed. Bedrooms & bathrooms well stocked with linens & towels for your stay. We enjoyed so much, we definitely are coming back to this house, and recommend this beach house to anyone searching for a house to stay with great gulf front views and all amenities needed for your stay. Plus many toys for the kids. 'The Carter Family'
Always a great stay.
We have been traveling to the Gulf for some 25 years on a continuing basis. One trip each year is the family week and we bring a big crowd. In 25 years of "beach week"ing this has been the best place of all. Impeccably maintained, fastidiously appointed, and completely comfortable. This beautiful property is well cared for, and you can tell that those who rent this place give it the respect and gentle treatment such an elegant property deserves. If there were ever a definition of "good energy housing at the beach" this would fit perfectly.
Thank you SO much!
We rented Sea Stars Cottage from 6-11 to 6-18, 2016. My daughter got married on the beach right out in back of the house, and then we stayed for a week's family vacation. The house is just wonderful and the perfect backdrop for a wedding. You can tell that it's well taken care of by the owners and the renters. It's beautifully decorated and we had everything we needed. Sherry was wonderful to work with, and we all hope to make it back very, very soon! I can't tell you how much we enjoyed our stay and how much fun we had at Sea Stars! A definite "high five" review!!
Thank you, Sherry!!
The perfect getaway!
This is a beautiful property with a great location. It looks just like the pictures, is super clean and feels like home! It is only 5 or so minutes from a great little grocery and the kitchen had everything we needed. The owner was easy to work with and quickly responded to any question we had. The icing on the cake was the "practice run" over the beach by the Blue Angels, the dolphins playing right off shore, and the abundance of sea shells up and down the beach. It was a fabulous Thanksgiving retreat!
