My husband and I rented this dog friendly cottage for the week! It was close to the beach, restaurants, shopping and trolly stop. It was great relaxing on the private patio. The place was clean and comfortable. Owner was very responsive! We would stay again!

Lovely cottage, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We just got home from a week at the Starfish cottage. We had a great time! The home was clean, comfortable, and very close to the beach. We loved having the enclosed patio for our two dogs and enjoyed the grill and patio furniture ourselves. Karen was very accommodating and professional, I enjoyed working with her. She was even great when we accidentally took home one of the keys. She allowed us to mail it back to her, no big deal. The cottage is within walking distance of great restaurants and shops in Dewey and the Jolly Trolly (to Rehobeth) picks up right on Swedes street.

What a lovely cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned home from another relaxing trip to Dewey Beach and enjoyed Starfish Cottage so much I had to write a review right away. What a lovely cottage! All of the necessities are there and then some, and I loved all of the special little touches throughout the cottage. Also, the fenced in patio was great for our two-year-old and Westie.

Charming cottage with the best location at the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Starfish Cottage is the perfect environment for a beach vacation. The cottage is located just 4 houses from the beach & is nestled within a peaceful hometown street! The cottage has every amenity that you could hope for. The décor is charming and it provides such a cozy relaxing atmosphere. Every detail is tastefully done and the home is spotless and inviting. It was wonderful having the enclosed patio area for the dog. We were able to be outside and I didn't have to worry about his safety. Karen was very helpful throughout the process of booking my trip & I look forward to many more stays at Starfish Cottage.

Authentic Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5

You can't get this feeling from a condo, apt, or hotel!! This cottage is the real deal and swedes st is just like being at the beach in the good ole days! Karen is a wonderful host, truly accommodating and kind. We so enjoyed this cute, clean space, with just a few steps to a clean, guarded beach. The patio is wonderful and private. Although we didn't bring our beloved Gloria Jean dog-child this trip, it is wonderful that pets can come along when you stay here. Thank you Karen!

Cozy, clean, and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent time in Dewey Beach this year! The best one so far!! The cottage was simply amazing, very cute, extremely clean, and all the amenities you could possibly need. The best thing was that we could bring our kids (our 4-legged kids!) and enjoy the front patio, keeping them enclosed and safe. So close to the beach, amazingly close to the ocean, and all the local Dewey restaurants and shopping. Excellent location. My husband is also disabled, so having no steps on the property was nice and gave us peace of mind. We can't wait to rent next year and do it all over again :)) Thanks again for a great house!
