About Aruna McDermott

We purchased these properties (House & cottage) in 2008 and have renovated them over the years. Every year we do a new improvement. We use the cottages ourselves so you know they are well loved and cared for. We love the cottages and area and know you will too!

Aruna McDermott purchased this house in 2008

Why Aruna McDermott chose Cape Cod

The house and cottage are a short 1/2 mile from both the ocean beach and the village of Dennisport. They are both decorated in a Cape Cod style that we think you'll love.

Put your feet up, read a book in the hammock, sit outside under the twinkle lights in the tree or stroll to Sundae School for the worlds best ice-cream sundae!

What makes this house unique

If your party is larger, you can rent both the 3BR/1.5BTH house and the 1BR/1BTH cottage next door.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had the most lovely stay at the Starfish Cottage!! It was the perfect house, on a quiet street, in a cute town!! It was close to the beach and walking distance to downtown Dennisport. The house was clean, adorably decorated, well equipped, and had super comfortable furniture. I highly recommend this place.. Such Great value!!

Long weekend family wedding

My family of four was very comfortable as the cottage was very clean, cozy and well equipped to meet our needs. Unfortunately it rained all weekend so we didn't get to enjoy the outside amenities.

Starfish Cottage- Great location and walking distance to many restaurants and ice cream.

  • 5 of 5

What a great week! Upon arrival we were excited to find a welcome gift of all the fixings for smores. We enjoyed those our first night by the gas fireplace. Our children ages 12,10, and 5 absolutely loved the loft area. It was like they had a private get away to themselves. The central location of the cottage was awesome! Walking distance to the Oyster Company with great outside dining. Nightly trips to Sundae School were great, again we were able to walk which was great. Aruna has the house filled with anything you may need to prepare your own meals; pots, pans, utensils etc. We explored many beaches during our stay and went whale watching in Provincetown. Can't wait to return to the Cape next summer.

Charming get away

  • 5 of 5

Just spent a week at the cottage. Plenty of room for my husband and I, our two children, and my sister and brother in law. It was in a great location on the cape to have as a home base as we visited the beaches during the day, and the towns in the evening. Highly recommended!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review Nicole! I agree with you that Dennis is a great central location on the Cape. Also, Dennis is one of the few town with beautiful beaches on the Bay & Ocean side. Please come back an visit anytime!

Starfish Cottage - Cozy, Clean and Comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

The three of us - hubby, me and our dog had a wonderful stay at Starfish Cottage. This is our second time staying at one of Aruna's homes. She has beautiful cottages that feel like a home, are nicely decorated and clean. And, we love that we can bring our yellow lab with us! Starfish is in a great location, an easy walk to the main street as well as centrally located on the Cape. Excellent cottage, highly recommend!
