Guestbook comments from the owner

My aunts, cousins and I had a great time in your home for our girls' week out. We went to the beach, spent time together, gather around the grill and picnic table, and laughed alot. We loved the seaside breeze and sound of the waves. We feel blessed to have had this time together. Thank you for sharing your home with us. We hope to return next year. Peace out.

Fantastic stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a the best time Starboard Cottage. The house was nicely decorated and very clean. The location is unbeatable; all beach vacations should be oceanfront! Walking to the beach anytime, hearing the sound of the ocean while reading on the porch. We plan to come back next year!

Great Beach Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Starboard Cottage! The house had great beach access. We enjoyed watching sunset from the upstairs deck and walking on the beach. The house is well stocked with all we needed for our girls week out. The six of us were very comfortable in this house. We will definitely stay at this home again.

Starboard stay

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a fabulous week at Bald Head and a wonderful stay in Starboard Cottage. The house definitely exceeded our expectations -- the photos really don't capture the warmth and comfort of the home. We had a diverse group with many needs, but all were met nicely in this home. The only annoyance was that the refrigerator door, if not carefully shut, would pop back open and soon begin beeping as the temperature dropped. Happily, that was our worst concern for the week. We would definitely stay at this home again or recommend it to friends.

Fantastic Beach House

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful vacation we had! We only wish we had booked the house for two weeks instead of one! We have rented several houses on Bald Head Island, but this house is the best. The oceanfront location is great. Sunrise from the bedroom, sunsets on the beach are incredible. The house is lovely and very comfortable. Everything was great, the kitchen, the furnishings, the view. The owners are wonderful hosts and has equipped the house with all the comforts of home. Thanks. We are so happy to have found our home away from home and look forward to our trip next year.

Great Beach House, 2nd Visit

  • 5 of 5

This is our second visit to Starboard Cottage. We didn't think the house could be more beautiful, but we love all the new furnishings this year. Wow! Gorgeous! This house is our favorite place to unwind, relax, and kick off our summer vacation. We feel so at home here. The location is great. This time we saw dolphin in the ocean and pelicans by the house. The kitchen is well equipped. We cooked many of our meals and had great time gathering around the dinner table or the outdoor picnic area by the new grill. The owner (John) is super nice and makes everything so easy and comfortable for us. My children and I eagerly await our visit next year. Thanks for another incredible vacation. We love it here!

Fantastic cottage

  • 5 of 5

My parent, husband, our three children and I spent a wonderful four days at this lovely home in May. The oceanfront location is great. The house was prefect for everyone. My kids loved running to and from the house to the beach either to show us their seashell finds or gather more snacks. My parents enjoyed the privacy the crofter offered. I loved reading and hearing the sound of the ocean by the front porch and the masterbedroom. The home is very clean. The kitchen was very nice, well stocked. Linens and towels were provided. We received our information packet and key timely. The information packet was organized and helpful. The owner was very nice and responsive to any questions we had. The stay could not have been more perfect. Thanks for sharing your home with us. We hope to stay here again soon.
