Why Mary Arnold and Michele Caputo chose Ocean Isle Beach
After vacationing for many years in Ocean Isle at homes that looked great in the photos but unfortunately showed a great deal of wear and tear and a lack of care, we decided to purchase our own home. We live in Maryland but travel down there 4 or 5 times a year just to check on the maintenance and update the décor. Our kitchen is fully stocked and bedding is replaced regularly. We have an excellent cleaning service as well as local handymen should any issue arise during your stay. We own 3 other properties on the island so we have a great deal of experience now and know what it takes to keep a steady stream of repeat renters. We think you and your guests will love this home as much as we do.

My husband and I stayed at the Starfish Cottage with our 7 year old and 2 year old twins. The house is amazing as soon as you walk in you feel the excitement of being a kid again! The bedrooms are large and comfy and waking up at 5am to hear the waves and watch the sun come up with a cup of coffee is so relaxing. It rained a bit the first couple of days,but your at the beach! We went out to the beach flew kites and played the entire time. The weather cleared up we built a sand fortress and many castles one which our son named the Starfish Castle! Michele one of the owners was extremely helpful with pretty much any questions we had. The kitchen is fully equipped so we saved a lot of money just getting groceries when we got there. There are televisions in all of the bedrooms and the living room,but who needs TV it’s the beach! Not to mention you have your very own private pool in the backyard! The boys would come straight from the beach,go in through the back where there is a shower area rinse off and jump in the pool. Michele was so kind and allowed us to bring our dog. He loved walking on the beach, but no pool time for him! This home has EVERYTHING you need in a beach house. We will definitely be back to enjoy the magical Starfish Cottage! We would also like to thank Michele for being so attentive and cool. Everything was perfect and we truly enjoyed our stay.
Stop looking! This is the house!
Loved Starfish Cottage, in spite of a very cold week. The house is adorable, nicely decorated, comfy, and well-equipped. The star is the deck, the fabulous views, the pool, and a beach opening quite close. The perfect spot to unpack your flip flops, suntan lotion, and make great family memories. Enjoy!
Thank you for the great review. We really appreciate your feedback. I know you owned a home in Ocean isle before, so your knowledge of what a guest likes is very important to us. We wish we could control the weather but the sun does beat down on the back porch so hopefully it warmed you up. We hope you come back to this house or one of our other homes.
Mary and I have four, oceanislebeachrental is our site. Safe travels back to Chicago.
Clean, but small
The house was as advertised however with the weather forcing us inside it was not a very comfortable stay. The house was very clean which is important however the bathrooms are small. The deck space was nice however the views are blocked by the front row homes. The beach access is nearby but still much further than we like. The were also correcting the beach from erosion the entire time we were there which limited the beach usability. All in all I think you get what you pay for with this choice. We didn't get to use the pool either. It was way to cold outside.
We are very sorry to hear that you didn't have good weather and that they were doing beach work while you were there. Neither of those things are under our control and fortunately the beach work has been completed now. As you stated, the advertising is accurate. We keep up-to-date photos and house information. I believe the photos show that there is a house between us and the ocean so views are limited, which is why the house is so much less expensive than oceanfront homes. We hope that you will return in the Spring or Summer months for a better experience.
Very comfortable well equipped house..
Starfish Cottage is a very nice, comfortable vacation destination. The house is located in a quiet neighborhood close to the beach with nice beach views. The pool area would be perfect for families with kids (we are kidless). The house is very convenient to restaurants, grocery stores, golf courses, etc. We would recommend this house to families with children or for adult getaways. The owners were very responsive and helpful. We will definitely consider Starfish Cottage for our next visit to Ocean Isle Beach.
WHAT A FIND!!!!!
My husband and I spent Christmas week with our children, granddaughter and family dogs at Starfish Cottage. The house could not have been more perfect for us all! Plenty of room, stylish cottage with great amenities - we wanted for nothing! The back deck was great as the sun during the afternoon really heated it up which allowed us to sit out. Close to the store for whatever we needed. Cooked all meals together at the house - very well stocked kitchen with plenty of dishes and anything else we needed. Beds were very comfortable - once, again, it was a wonderful week! We surely hope to be able to go back to Starfish Cottage. Owners were very helpful with good communication throughout the rental process! Needless to say, we sadly had to leave and come home but were thoroughly spoiled throughout the week!!!
Mary and I want to thank you for taking such good care of our house. We really appreciate all the kind words. We are glad you could enjoy the sun on the back deck during those cold days. We are glad you enjoyed our new fully stocked kitchen too. I hope you an come back in the spring and enjoy warmer weather and the pool.
Wonderful stay in Ocean Isle!
My family and I stayed at this wonderful house in ocean Isle for 1 week during the busy season. When we arrived the house was clean and ready for us to unpack. There were 8 of us that stayed in the house and plenty of room for all with the 4 bedrooms. The distance to the beach was perfect with 4 kids and all their beach toys and the pool was great for when we returned to take a quick dip before showers and dinner. My family and I had a great time in Ocean Isle and we would definitely stay at this property again!
