Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

The Starfish Cottage was perfect for our stay! Kelley has done a great job of accommodating a family and their pet(s) with what they may need while visiting Dauphin Island, right down the dog bowl. The kitchen is nicely stocked with cooking utensils and dishes. There are plenty of towels in the bathroom, even a few beach towels in case you forget yours. Having a washer and dryer was a space saver on packing and no dirty laundry to worry about when we returned home! Our family of four felt right at home here. The only negative I can list is, my husband has back problems and the queen bed was not comfortable for him, so if you have back issues you may want to take that in to consideration. We have discussed it and we would love to return to Starfish Cottage(with our egg crate mattress topper in tow)!! We left our vacation feeling great about our choice of stay and will hopefully be returning in the fall! Thanks for all your hospitality Kelley!

Cozy cottage, perfect for our family of 4!

  • 5 of 5

I have nothing but good things to say at Starfish Cottage! It was nice and tidy when we got there. Kelley had it stocked with just about everything you need...plenty of cookware and dishes, towels, spare sheets, blankets and pillows. It truly felt like a home away from home. We hope to return someday!

Cute, rustic island cottage

  • 5 of 5

We loved this cute little house! The comfortable furnishings (not fussy or over-the-top) made us feel right at home. It was very clean. When we arrived, the air conditioning was on and the door was open. What a wonderful welcome after a long drive! The kitchen had everything we needed. The washer and dryer were awesome to have. It was an easy walk to the beach. The main road of the island is less than a block away. This made it very convenient to get to anything on the island. However, the neighborhood was quiet. There were several evenings that we enjoyed sitting on the porch after a day of exploring and the playing on the beach. This was our first trip to the island, and we have no regrets! We couldn't have been more pleased with our stay.

This was a very special get away for my wife and youngest daughter who had grown up and not been with for a very long time. We had a wonderful time. We hope to be back.
