About Arnie and Georgia Sohlstrom

Owner Arnie Sohlstrom spent many a summer on the Long Beach Peninsula. His family owned and operated Holiday Charters out of the Port of Ilwaco in the "60's and 70's. His love of sport fishing, clamming and crabbing on the peninsula has spanned decades. Arnie is always happy to share his local expertise and folklore of the peninsula.

Arnie and Georgia Sohlstrom purchased this condo in 2016

Why Arnie and Georgia Sohlstrom chose Long Beach

We love the the coast and the sound of crashing waves. Since the Long Beach peninsula is home to some of Arnie Sohlstrom's best childhood memories, it made sense that we buy a vacation rental home here. We bought Starfish in September of 2016 and had it managed by a local vacation rental property manager. They did a great job at keeping starfish booked, clean and desirable. Since Georgia Sohlstrom is a licensed realtor in Oregon, she thought she could do the job just as well and without having to pay the heavy property management fees thus making Starfish more affordable for our guests. Over the past year Starfish condo received 10 five star reviews and lots of positive feedback from happy beach lovers. Unfortunately, with the change in management we couldn't bring our fantastic reviews with us. Please be sure to leave us any thoughts, comments etc. after your stay.

We love the fun, yet peaceful, artsy not stuffy vibe here on the peninsula and hope you will too.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Cozy & well kept. View is beautiful. Truly feels like home away from home. Kitchen fully stocked, BBQ, kite, beach chairs, even a first aid kit. Fire place for stormy nights. And gracious owners! I will definitely be back!

Nice and clean. Cozy like home. Great beach vibe. Awesome ocean view.

  • 5 of 5

Great spot for a beach getaway. My 4 person family was very comfy and felt like we had everything we needed to enjoy the beach and nature. Easy access to all the fun stuff in Long Beach and great views inside for when we needed to duck out of the rain. (early April weather). The condo was well decorated and quiet. Overall a great time and we plan to come back again.

Nice condo

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our stay. The deer are way cool. The view is Ok, would be nicer if the room was closer to the water, but you can tell from the pictures what you are getting. Well stocked so cooking was easy. Do wish there was a guide on which channels the TV got and maybe a TV in the bedroom too. But over all nice and quite place.

Good

  • 3 of 5

Overall good. The beds could’ve been a little bit more comfortable. And was not happy at all with the Internet service. Or the cable for the TV .

Owner's Response: Hi Denice, Your review is not the typical review we get at Starfish. Our guests are always so thrilled with the view, the cleanliness of the condo, the well stocked kitchen and open spaciousness of the condo itself. We hear comments all the time about the wildlife, the great local restaurants, and lovely strolls on the beach. I want you to know that your opinions are important to us. This March has been extra stormy and windy. Sometimes that can affect the Internet and cable connections at the beach. The guests just prior to your arrival had a difficult time with reception too. I will check with our carrier and see if there is anything we can do to improve our reception. I appreciate your letting us know about this problem. In our guidelines and etiquette page in the guest book, our phone number is there and we are always available to help. If you should happen to stay with us again, please know we are happy to receive calls and work through any issue you may be having. Hope to see you again, Georgia
