About Holly Wetherholt
Our family has called 30th Street home for more than 20 years. We personally manage the property and live a few houses away. Close enough when you need us and far enough away for your privacy.
Holly Wetherholt purchased this House in 1996
Why Holly Wetherholt chose Balboa Peninsula
We chose this property because of the location, location, location! We like to be able to park our car and walk places. On 30th Street, everything you need is conveniently located within a short walk. Our family loves the beach and the bay. Whenever life gets too hectic, a little walk with a beautiful sunset puts everything into perspective.
What makes this House unique
Starfish cottage will always be special to us because both of our children were born while we lived here. 30th Street is a nice community with great neighbors. Our family enjoys being outdoors. Living on 30th, we never run out of things to do or places to go. We enjoy having public parking near by for family holidays and celebrations plus friends love to visit Newport Beach!

The perfect vacation place -
Holly - thank you for sharing your piece of paradise with us. Cottage was decorated so cute and the location is close to everything you need. We didn’t need a car - close to beach, restaurants, stores, Starbucks. Just a fantastic place to stay. We are hoping to return next year for 2 weeks. Thanks for letting us have the perfect vacation.
Starfish cottage is the best!
Thank you so much Holly!
Your cottage is perfect and we could not have asked for a better first get away without kids! The place is amazing, clean and has all the things you would need for a great stay. We will definitely be coming back!
Great Beach House in Great Location
My family thoroughly enjoyed out stay at Starfish Cottage! It is in a great location less than two short blocks from the beach with many restaurants and stores within walking distance. The house was clean and very comfortable and all of our beach supplies were provided. Holly was great to work with and gave us good advice about nearby places to eat. We had a wonderful time!
Holly is a great host
Holly was fantastic to deal with and I would definitely book with her again

My husband and I spent 16 nights in the cottage For our annual two week getaway from the north east weather in February. The weather was a little cooler and rainier than usual but it did not dampen - LOL - our stay one bit . We had family visit and some great memories were made around the white round table as my first cousin from Torrance noted. We grilled lobster tails and oysters and generally lived it up. We took the ferry to Catalina island from Long Beach which was memorable and also got up to the Getty Villa and my favorite restaurant at the Santa Monica pier, The Lobster. It’s pricey but it is to die for. If you like to cook, the kitchen is amazing .
We turned out two pies there and several amazing meals . Of course we did not cook all of the time and hit some of the neat restaurants in Newport Beach . I recommend Fish and Fly on the boardwalk for the happy hour where they have oysters, Malarkey’s which is one block away for a great happy hour and socialization, and Bluewater Grill which is fabulous. Also be sure to hit the fish market by the Newport Beach Pier which has great seafood if you get there early enough on the weekend . Obviously we did not have children with us so this was more of an adult vacation. I highly recommend Starfish Cottage. Holly and Drew are great owners and are responsive if you might have any questions.
