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.

Loved It!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent 5 nights at Starfish Cottage and wanted for absolutely nothing during our stay. Access to the beach was only a couple minutes to walk, the pool just a few steps, the supermarket a short drive. Everything with this visit was stress-free including a virtually empty beach. It was almost like we had it to ourselves bearing in mind that our stay was early May although, I can't imagine the beach here will ever be as crowded as the beaches to the south.

Upon arrival, we had zero complaints about the general cleanliness of the cottage. Everything was spic and span. We brought our own linens so all we had to do was make the bed. Whatever we needed with regard to you basic appliances was provided. The pool, while not large, was clean and definitely a big plus as the temps were above normal during our stay and provided a nice way to cool off or just float and relax. The back of the cottage is nicely fenced so we didn't have to worry about our dog Midas touring the neighborhood and even has a gate on the deck to prevent him from going down to the pool area when we didn't want him down there. Finally, the owners were super nice and responsive on the occasions that I did need guidance and I suspect strongly that our paths will cross again. :-) We loved our stay here!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed our home and everything met your expectations. We have done a lot of work to this house since we first purchased it. The pool and kitchen are new and we are glad you could enjoy it. We do take pride in the cleanliness of our homes so I am glad everything was good. We hope you come back. We love that we could share our home with you. Remember we have two other homes down the street that sleep 18 and then a townhouse on the West end. Please think of us again and thank you for taking care of our house.

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!!!

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, relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this house for two nights and had a wonderful time. The owners were extremely responsive and friendly and had great recommendations for local dining options. The house was super clean, the kitchen was well stocked and the beds were very comfortable. There was a great back deck and it was a short walk to the beach. I loved my stay and highly recommend the house to everyone!

Wonderful stay in Ocean Isle!

  • 5 of 5

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!

good time

  • 4 of 5

We had a really great time at this house. We all loved the pool and the close proximity to the beach. Especially the kids. We were actually lucky enough to have the house in front vacant for the week so our ocean access was right there. Otherwise the access is just a couple hundred feet down the road. There were no surprises here. What you see in pictures and description is what you get. Not luxurious but yet, all of our needs were met. Also, as said many times before in reviews, owners very responsive to any inquiries, which is very important.

My recommendations include a new shower head for outdoor shower. We found the hose to be way more effective. Also, as mentioned in at least one other review, there is a queen mattress in the back left bedroom that is so worn it is actually concave. I can't speak for the other mattresses. Thanks for allowing us to have a great vacation in your home!

Owner's Response: We really enjoyed talking with you and having you as our guest. We appreciate you letting us know about the shower and mattress. We have already installed a new shower head in the outside shower along with some hooks to hang clothes and towels. We are replacing that mattress on Saturday during our switch over day. We are glad you enjoyed the pool and the beach. Please think of us again if you come back to Ocean Isle. We have a few different homes we would love to share with you.
