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.

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.

Our family has been coming to OIB for 25 years. It is smaller but very clean and comfortable .

  • 4 of 5

The pool was very nice with some shaded areas. Beach access was close. Linens from Shirley Spivey were very nice. Bedrooms were good sized. The Beach House decor added a homey feel. Nice updated kitchen.

Enjoyed pool, close beach access, updated kitchen and bathroom and the back deck viewing the ocean.

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed the short walk to beach access on oceanside, private pool, back deck with ocean views, updated clean kitchen and bathrooms. The owners were very friendly and helpful in booking our stay. The bedrooms need upgrading. Overall it met our needs.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your trip but sad to see three stars. We just recently replaced two rooms with flat screen tv's and will have the other rooms replaced in the fall. All of the bedrooms are remodeled with new furniture, bedding, and coordinated decorations. We also just purchased two comfortable coral glider rockers in front. All of the pictures on our website are current. We just love this cottage and the location and views.

Awesome, Relaxing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the Starfish Cottage! Such a nice and relaxing beach house that we barely left except for a couple occassions. Beach access is very close and it was perfect for what we were looking for.

Would definitely stay here again!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind words. Starfish Cottage is a great house with beautiful views. The pool and deck overlooking the ocean is where we spend most of our time. Thank you for taking care of our house. We would love to have you back. Remember we have four homes on our website www.oceanislebeachrental.com All of them are on vrbo too. Michele and Mary

Nice place but quality not as high as expected and missing key supplies

  • 3 of 5

We had a nice time and the owners were easy to work with. I do think the pictures on VRBO do not reveal the amount of wear and tear that exists for the property. One of the queen beds has a very thin and bad mattress and some key supplies (like toilet paper) were missing.

Owner's Response: We are so sorry that you were disappointed with a few things. The house is not newly built so you may have noticed some structural wear but we hope that nothing that gets in the way of our guests' enjoyment. We make sure the house is very clean, nicely decorated and stocked with the kitchen supplies you would need for your stay. Thank you for telling us about the mattress -- we will check it out this week and replace. As for paper goods such as toilet paper, we ask our housekeepers to ensure that there is toilet paper on the rolls but we do not claim to provide any of those items. We send out a "what to bring" list to our guests in advance so you area aware. It is simply a matter of logistics that our housekeepers cannot stock paper goods. We do supply the house in the beginning of the seasons and ask that guests replace if they use the last of something but unfortunately that doesn't always happen. Thank you again for your feedback.

Wonderful way to recharge our "batteries"!

  • 5 of 5

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!
