Why Mary Arnold and Michele Caputo chose Southern Coast

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 family and friends spent two really enjoyable weeks at Starfish Cottage, the end of September. It was so great being only a short walk from the beach. The ocean views from the deck were relaxing, and the sunrises were special. Finding such a nice home which permits dogs, was an added bonus. The temps were still warm, so we were able to enjoy the private pool, as well as play in the ocean and on the beach. It was hard to leave, but it was just the respite we needed. Michele and Mary went above and beyond in being accommodating. If we had issues, they were very helpful and welcomed feedback. Would we consider going back? Absolutely!

Wonderful Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Starfish Cottage in September and we truly enjoyed our time there. The house is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. It had all of the comforts of home so we didn't have to worry about anything. The ocean views were all around and we loved sitting on the deck in the evenings and listening to the waves crash and feeling the ocean breezes. The beach access is very close and convenient. We loved having our own private pool as well. Normally we stay in Surfside Beach, SC but we decided to try a quieter, more low key town this year and Ocean Isle Beach was perfect. When it was time to go home, I didn't want to leave but we will definitely be back. The owners were very helpful and responsive to my questions and made the renting process very easy and stress free. Thank you so much Mary and Michele! We hope to come back next year!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed our house and Ocean Isle Beach. Thank you for taking care of our home. We would love to have you back to visit. We have four homes on the Island so we have something for everyone. We also have off season specials which make a last minute vacation affordable. It makes us feel good that you had a nice relaxing time and could enjoy the views. We really love this cottage and glad you loved it too. Mary and Michele

Wonderful, comfortable home. Clean and cozy and perfect for our family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

I really can't say enough good things about our vacation at this delightful cottage at Ocean Isle. This was our first visit to Ocean Isle and our family needed a retreat. We felt welcome even before we arrived thanks to the responsiveness of the owner, Michele. She was courteous and professional and made the reservation process quick and easy - all of the information and communication from her was clear and organized. She was also flexible with our family's unique needs. Once we arrived at the home, we were so pleased with the cleanliness, spaciousness, bright and tasteful decoration and comfy cozy feel. Everything was just as described. We loved sitting on the deck for coffee and the pool was nice and cool after a hot day at the beach. Beach access was a very short walk - very convenient for our smaller children and dog. I really want to stress the excellent service from the owners. I highly recommend renting from these particular owners and they have several beautiful homes at Ocean Isle. I would definitely stay here again (or at one of the owner's other homes depending upon how many people we have) on our next trip to Ocean isle.

Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves...

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with 9 people, 7 adults and two children.

The close on the beach location is awesome....

The cleanliness of the property... Awesome....

The amount of "stuff' already there we did not need to bring... Awesome...

Ice cold air conditioning :) awesome...

The responsiveness of the owners... Impeccable and awesome...

The grocery store (lows) is less than 10 minutes away... Awesome....

The enclosed garage... Neat and unexpected...

The newish gas grill... Hot and functional...

The "shaded by 2 pm" in ground pool - awesome spot to enjoy outside and stay cool even when you have had enough sun at the beach... The most appreciated asset on the property.

A week at a quiet, family oriented, absolutely beautiful location... Awesome ( and priceless ;) )

Thank you Mary and Michele!!!

We've stayed at Ocean Isle for 14 years now and have stayed in 5 different locations. My preference is VRBO because of the personal contact with the home owners and the fact that they are so quick in response to any small matter. Dealing with 2 of the realtors in the past left a negative taste for us....i.e.; being without A/C for a full day or unclean areas simply because there is not enough service providers to cover all the properties.

Starfish Cottage is beautifully reinavated and well taken care of. Owner communication is quick, specific, and very personable. We enjoyed not having to walk across the street and being pretty much "oceanfront" with a pool. The value was the best we found for all of those amenities with our amount of people. And lastly, the East end of OIB is our choice because of bike rides to the Sound and less people! We'd recommend this cottage and their owners to anyone!

Owner's Response: Shay, we are so glad you enjoyed the house as much as we do. We agree that the east end of the island is the place to be. Lots of streets right there for kids to ride their bikes on with absolutely NO traffic. Also glad that you appreciated the personal touch that Michele and I like to provide. We are fortunate to have awesome help on the island so if an issue does arise they are there to handle it *immediately*. Thanks again!

The Best Beach House for Family & Pets

  • 5 of 5

We have been vacationing at Ocean Isle for 5 years and we have finally found the perfect Beach House for my family and our two dogs. The fenced in yard is perfect for relaxing around the pool and having our two dachsunds by our side. The house is perfect inside and has plenty of room on the covered deck where we enjoyed the ocean breeze and playing cards and games with our grown children. Everyone wants to come back next year and we look forward to coming back. We couldn't have asked for a better vacation.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kinds words and thank you for taking care of our house. We would welcome you back anytime. Mary and I are proud of all the updates we made in the house--, new kitchen, pool, new windows. The views are incredible and we are glad you enjoyed your stay. The covered decks and lower level are great for the dogs to stay cool. Please think of us in the future.
