My wife and I stayed in Starfish Cottage in early July this year. Our eldest daughter lives in Plymouth so we took a break to visit her. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left we felt so much at home! The cottage has everything you could possibly want from a holiday rental. It was very spacious, well equipped (especially the kitchen and family room), comfortable and felt homely. Lots of room for families, air conditioned, beautiful gardens and close enough to Plymouth centre without being in town. Rita made us feel very welcome and we enjoyed our chats! We really had a great time and hope to return in 2016! Thank you Rita!
When deciding to take a vacation to visit our children. We found Star Fish Cottage listing. By the pictures and reviews we thought this would be the perfect place so we could spend time with our children and grandchildren. When we arrive at the cottage to our suprise its pictures did do it justice. The cottage gives a real cozy feeling like a home not a hotel. The rooms are very spacoius you have room to move and there is plenty of room to entertain. There is plenty to do and see in plymouth we went on the Ghost walk visited the shops , the rock, museum and many other things wial we were out there. Rita was very nice . We had no problems what so ever during out stay. Everything was provided that we needed . We enjoyed our Stay at Star Fish Cottage and would recommed it to anyone who wishes to have a quiit, cozy place where they can enjoy family . The cottage was big enough to accomadate all of us with no problem. We enjoyed the games with the children and grandchildren that Rita provides . The yard is very nicely landscaped and the property well keep. All around great place to stay. Do not have a second thought on recommending Star Fish Cottage to anyone. Thank You again Rita it was so nice to meet you and your son. You made our trip very enjoyable! Tracy and Denise Nielsen Braidwood, il
My wife and I left the New York Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade to arrive at Starfish Cottage in beautiful Plymouth Harbor. What a lovely place to bring my daughter, her husband and the grandchildren. As the ad suggested it is a very child friendly place and the grandchildren had so many things to play with and everything about Starfish was lovely. It is handily located right next to the entrance of The Plimouth Plantation and we had scheduled the seasonal Thanksgiving dinner with the Pilgrims and Wampaog Indians. It is close to The Mayflower and don't miss the important Monument of our Forefathers. Can I suggest staying at starfish and take a daytrip over to Boston and visit the Boston Harbor Museum. You and your children will love the experience of throwing tea into the Harbor! So much to do all around Starfish and it was an experience we will always treasure. So glad Rita came over and met the family one evening. Such a very nice person and wonderful host. Sorry we didn't get to meet the daughter. Can I suggest that you spend some time in Plymouth showing your family where it all began and if we get back we are going to be staying at Starfish Cottage! Randy....
We rented the Starfish Cottage for the day so that my bridesmaids and I could get ready before my Pymouth area wedding. It was perfect! Our hair and makeup artist set herself up in one room, the upstairs rooms were open for the photographer to take pictures of my dress and then for me and the bridesmaids to dress. There is a cute kitchen, dining table and living area, so we brought food and champagne and made a day of it. The place itself is charming and cozy. When we were all dressed, we took some gorgeous pictures in the yard. It was the perfect place to start our day and I hope that my now husband and I will be back soon to spend a longer stay!
Stayed for 5 weeks in the Starfish Cottage with my family. Had a great time !! Thanks Rita.
This cottage has a great location for Plimoth Plantation and the beach. I walked to the beach a few times with my little ones (a stroller plus a 5 and 7 yr old walking). There is a sidewalk most of the way. The beach is mostly a rocky beach, especially at high tide. At low tide, there are sandy stretches. Although the house is located on a main road, the cottage is back from the road so we weren't bothered by traffic at all.
The A/C kept the main living spaces downstairs cool, but the playroom/futon sleeping space did not stay as cool. Although there were 3 beds in the twin room, one was right under the A/C so we chose not to use it. Seemed a bit loud in this location.
Due to the 3 twin beds and the various toys available, this is mostly a good cottage with kids. However, I would not recommend it for the crawling through about 4 age group. For one, no tub. I was able to wash my baby in the large kitchen sink, but at 20mo and petite, she was about maxing out the size for that. Also, the kitchen "cabinets" are actually curtains which was a hassle with a little one who was so curious and always wanting to open them and pull on them. Rita did provide gates for the stairs upon request, but the upstairs gate didn't work right, so that could be an issue for some. As another person mentioned, the stairs are VERY steep.
Rita was wonderful to work with and very quick to handle any mishaps.
This property has a wonderful large yard and a shed full of stuff to use in the yard and at the beach.
A lot of cobwebs, some dirty dishes and some stained towels, so its not for the nit-picky, but I didn't feel dirty staying there.
Lots of restaurants, Walmart, Target, and a couple of major grocery stores as well as a couple of malls provide anything you might need while there (within about 15 to 20 mins away)
Overall a great stay.
Close to all Historic sites, Plymouth Rock, MayFlower 2, Beaches, Whale Watching, Deep Sea Fishing, Plimouth Plantation, Seafood Restaurants, State Parks, & much more
I accept credit card directly and have been since 2005, not through the site. The site charges fees for this service!
