'We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation in your house. It was a wonderful experience. You had all the amenities and the location was perfect.' G.K., St. Louis, MO
'We loved Star of the Gulf!! Plenty of space and it was so nice to have so many things provided for us! We also loved that is was so close to the beach and that the beach was private. We would take walks down the beach and see some places so crowded and be so thankful we were where we were! And it was a great price for all that we got!' D.W., Lexington, KY
Star of the Gulf has been my family's beach house since I was a little girl. Our own children now enjoy this treasure. We are very happy to share it with other families.
Miriam Buono purchased this house in 2008
When my parents decided to retire, we just couldn't bear selling the house, so we bought it! Our children are so happy that we are now the owners of Star of the Gulf! We go as often as we can. It's the one place we can really get away from it all and relax.
We love our cozy little neighborhood, having the beach just a few steps away, and walking down to the corner diner for breakfast and lunch. The beach is a gem. White sand goes on and on for miles in each direction. We love having the beach to ourselves.
We enjoyed your home immensely. My husband is in the Army and we were traveling home for my daughter’s dance competition. Your home gave us the ability to “be at home” and have family there with us. The home is spacious and the proximity to the beach is perfect- just a hop skip and a jump and you are there. Everything you need for a beach getaway is on site. This is a great home.
We rented this condo for our family gathering. The Furniture is comfortable. The king bed was excellent. Plenty of bathrooms for everyone. Excellent communication with owner. Prompt response to all inquires. We would stay there again.
The location of this place is perfect, it was a short walk to the beach. We enjoyed the beautiful sandy beaches everyday. We had three families that came with us, so renting the two places were perfect. One family had a 4 month old and needed more quite time then the other two families. The overall decor of both places could use some updating but besides that the two places fit our needs the for the week!
My recent vacation was a success as a result of staying at The Star of the gulf. The property is exactly as shown in the photos. Its a short walk to the beach, with a great backyard patio where we enjoyed cooking dinner on the grill. We were able to easily accommodate 8 adults here for the weekend and always had room for everyone. In the morning we were able to walk next door to kenny's korner restaurant for a great breakfast. I look forward to my next vacation now that I know where to stay only steps from the beach. A+ Service. Thank You
Great location for a large family getaway. We rented both the main house and guest house and there was plenty of room for the 10 of us. Great place for the grandchildren. Just a short walk to the beach and beaches are exceptional. Owner was very professional and helpful throughout the entire process. Thank you!
We used Star of the Gulf as a family house for my Son's destination wedding. We had 10 people in our party and used the main house and the guest suite. Although the rooms are "slightly" smaller than the pictures appear, the layout is perfect. The guest suite is perfect for older family members because there are no stairs. It's only one block from the beach and is a very easy walk.
If you're like we were and are apprehensive about booking through VRBO, don't be about this property. The owner is very easy to communicate with either by email or by phone. This was one of our best getaways even though is was jam packed with activities.
Thank you for providing a home away from home for our family. We created lots of special Xmas memories during our stay in the Star of the Gulf. It was the perfect size to accommodate all 12 of us for meals while still providing quiet space between the 3 levels of well-designed rooms.
We especially enjoyed the cafe on the corner where Grandpa & grandson had breakfast together several mornings before the rest of us woke up.
The washers/driers were a very practical amenity. Enjoyed beautiful sunsets at the beach and being close to many other restaurants and attractions. The owner was very helpful, responsive, and easy to work with.
