Seal Beach Starfish Cottage, February 2017

  • 5 of 5

Steve and I returned to Seal Beach for 5 weeks this year to avoid Salt Lake City's wintertime "bad air" - our air even made the national news this winter! In 2016, we rented Pineapple Cottage from Kye & Elana . We moved to Starfish Cottage this year due to availability. We loved Pineapple so much that I feared Starfish might disappoint. But not at all. It is as lovely as Pineapple in every way - and Kye & Elana are the best hosts. Starfish has a large and sunny front porch that faces the street where people ride by on bicycles and walk dogs and ounge on their own porches. Neighbors are friendly - one couple had us over for drinks & dinner at their house just a few doors down. The back porch is nice for mingling with guests in the Starfish one-bedroom, like the very nice New Englanders who left the previous review. The location is perfect, just blocks from Main Street and the Pier and only half a block from the beach. I especially love the music at Bogart's Coffee shop on Friday and Saturday nights. This February was stormy and rainy for Seal Beach. We spent those days visiting Orange's Historic Old Town, the Temecula wineries, trying all the best tacos in Orange County (see Orange Coast Magazine, Nov 2016), and even took in a showing of "The Price is Right", where my 81 year old mother made it on stage with Drew Carey! Winnings (or not) are top secret till the April 25th showing!! We are looking forward to returning to Starfish in 2018.

Owner's Response: Jayne & Steve: We really appreciate you taking the time to leave a 5 Star review with lots of details. Having you both back as guests was very enjoyable and we are glad you enjoyed the Starfish Bungalow as much as the Pineapple Bungalow. We try hard to make our guests happy. What a joy to hear about your mom with Drew Carey. :) Your Home Away from Home will be ready for you in 2018. We have you offically on the Calendar. Cheers Elena

A wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of renting the 2-bedroom Starfish Bungalow the week of June 11, 2017. This cute home was the perfect fit for our family of 5. We enjoyed days on the beach as well as visiting the various theme parks (Disneyland, California Adventure, Universal Studios). This location was perfect for everything we wanted to do. Seal Beach is the perfect location centrally located to everything we wanted to do in So. Cal while also providing the perfect beach experience. We couldn't be more pleased and this accommodation was just right. I would highly recommend and would look to stay agin. Thank you!!

Starfish 1 bedroom

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Starfish 1 bedroom in January to escape the New England winter. The cottage is perfect for 2 ..... very comfortable and charming with all amenities. Fabulous location (just a few blocks from beach, pier, and Main St). Loved having the garage to store our bikes. The private patio was perfect for sitting in the sun and catching up on reading. Elana and Kye could not be more accommodating, they make you feel right at home, perfect hosts! We're looking forward to a return trip to Starfish in 2018.

Owner's Response: We so much enjoyed having you both as guests again in Seal Beach. I love the energy you both have about life. We saw your husbands photo in the Seal Beach paper again when he was surfing. Way to go. Cheers Elena

Grand kid visit

  • 5 of 5

We spent the month of January at the Starfish visiting our daughter and grand kids who live 15 minutes away in Rosmor CA. Starfish was perfect-clean, well appointed and very comfortable. 10-12 minute walk to restaurants and shopping on Main St. as well as the Pier. Owners were great and very responsive when heater went down. Great location for visiting all the many tourist attractions in LA and southern CA areas.

Owner's Response: Robert & Nancy: I was a pleasure meeting you both. I am happy to hear you enjoyed the cottage with your Grandchildren who live close by. The Starfish can always be your home away from home when you visit. Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. That was kid of you. Cheers, Elena

This was our first time renting a home and our stay was wonderful! The owners go above and beyond making sure you feel right at home. The inside of the home is decorated lovely and the outside of the home is surrounded w/ beautiful green succulents. There is both a front porch and a private backyard patio area. The home is very clean and filled w/ everything you need.

We will definitely return. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

The Starfish Cottage and The Pineapple Cottage

  • 5 of 5

I rented the Starfish Cottage for approximately 12 days. The cottage was beautifully decorated, spanking clean, everything you could possibly ask for as far as dishes, towels...totally modern!! Not only did I have the Starfish Cottage, but my longtime friend came for a visit and rented the Pineapple Cottage! The beach, Main Street, everything at our fingertips!! I HIGHLY recommend these rentals, to families or even if it's a business trip. I WILL be returning!! Loved every minute...not one complaint!!
