Hi Rita,

I've been very remiss in thanking you for the wonderful time we all experienced at "Starfish Cottage" It was a great week spent with our family and exploring the local area. We didn't even mind the cold weather!

Thank you so much for doing everthing to make our stay more comfortable. We hope the cottage is a great success for you and your family.

Exceeded our expectations on our wedding weekend!

  • 5 of 5

The Starfish Cottage exceeded our expectations! Rita and her generosity and hospitality was just incredible. She even had a bottle of bubbly and 2 amazing chocolate covered strawberries waiting for us when we arrived!We got married in Plymouth, MA and wanted a beautiful place to stay that could also be used on the wedding day for the ladies of the wedding party to get ready. The whole experience was one of ease, joy, calm and togetherness. The cottage was perfectly quaint and lovely in every way. We even did our First Look photos in the yard and they were stunning!! We couldn't recommend this place enough. It felt like home.

Charming cottage, ideal location, attentive lovely Owner!

  • 5 of 5

Quaint cottage, with beautiful grounds. Loved the charm and touches of the cottage. The outside seating area was a wonderful place to unwind at the end of the day. Close to downtown, beaches and all historic attractions. All of our expectations were met and we truly enjoyed our stay. Rita and her daughter were very accommodating and helpful to our stay in Plymouth becoming a wonderful memory for all.

Comfy cottage for a small group

  • 4 of 5

We thought the Starfish Cottage was great! Close to public beach access, plenty of space for our 6 people, cute place. If you like to cook for yourself while on vacation that part is a little tricky b/c the kitchen is quite small and only has minimal cooking appliances, but we did make 2 dinners in (using the grill) and that was fine. Rita is very responsive and helpful. Thanks for a great stay!
