Charming cottage close to beaches and attractions

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 4 looking to get away for a week or R & R. Holly's house was a great place to do that. It is a cute, lovely home, very clean and comfortable. Centerville is close to the beach, restaurants, shops and attractions. The property is well maintained and the owners are always available to answer any of your questions. We explored many neighboring towns to see other beaches and enjoy the scenery. Thank you Holly & Eric for sharing your home with us.

Beautiful Sea Star Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

When choosing a property, regardless how much research you do there is always an element of a leap of faith.

Boy we struck lucky when we chose Sea Star Cottage for our week in Cape Cod! What a wonderful place, Holly & Erik have obviously put so much time and effort into creating this house, we felt we were the first people to have ever stayed there, it was immaculate, so many little details that make a difference, gorgeous colour coordinated beach towels, chairs for the beach, a parking pass for the beaches in Barnstable (a day parking at Craigville Beach costs $20 without it).

Holly paid a visit to introduce herself as soon as I let her know we had arrived and gave us directions to the supermarket so we could stock up on food.

When I notified Holly the gas for the barbeque has run out, it was replenished the next day.

As for location, Centerville is ideal, 5 minute drive to Craigville Beach, 10 minute drive to Hyannis, 17 miles to Falmouth should you fancy picking up a boat trip to Marthas Vineyard.

Perhaps the next improvement to the property should be aircon for the second bedroom, my daughters found the room hot and the fan supplied ineffective.

I would not hesitate in recommending this property.

Adorable, happy cottage with wonderful owners

  • 5 of 5

The photos do justice to most of this adorable house, and it's truly a gem. Everything you need for a week away - all the details and then some- the owners have taken care of. They have a great eye for interior design and there's a ton of sunlight to this house.

The owner Holly is incredibly responsive, warm and friendly and went above and beyond to make sure we had a great stay (she even checked in with us mid-trip to see if we needed anything else -- how nice is that?).

This was our first experience with VRBO, and it was so easy to confirm/process and this home was so perfect that we definitely hope to repeat this vacation annually. We had a terrific stay!

Perfect cape cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our stay in the Sea Star cottage. The home is beautifully decorated and it's clear the owners put so much thought into making sure everything you could possibly need would be there for your stay. Exceeded my expectations based on the description and the home was sparkling clean. Convenient location with quick access to many Town of Barnstable beaches (rental includes the landlord pass so you can go to the resident only beaches like Covells and Dowses) the playground, library, and even ice cream at Four Seas. Highly recommend this home for families or couples. The owner was so responsive and I really appreciated that (even left us a welcome gift of taffy!)

Très agréable cottage, parfaitement décoré et équipé, situé dans une charmante petite ville, près d'une très belle plage, d'une grande aire de jeux et de Hyannis. Les propriétaires ont été charmants et très disponibles. Parfait pour une famille de 4/5 personnes. L'ensemble est vraiment charmant et très confortable. Idéal pour sillonner la presqu'île.

Perfect summer getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our first family summer vacation, couldn't have been any better. Holly and Erik were so welcoming and helpful. The house is appointed perfectly to keep you cozy. Air conditioned, beautifully decorated, outdoor shower, patio with gas grill, cable and wifi. All the comforts of home but in a quiet seaside town. Evening walks to playground and four seas ice cream. Beach pass to 15 area fresh and salt water beaches, priceless. We couldn't ask for anything more. We will be back.
