Starfish Cottage -- for Daydreams and Making Memories

Relax in a hammock with a book, your daydreams, or just enjoy the sound of the ocean and salt-kissed breezes on the wrap-around deck at Starfish Cottage -- a classic Carolina beach cottage in Duck.

You, your loved ones, and friends will feel at home in this affordable, family-friendly, comfortable retreat, featuring four bedrooms, 2-full baths, full kitchen, children’s swings, a grilling area, enclosed outdoor shower, and more – except unlike home, you’ll be less than 100 yards from beach access!

As if this weren’t enough to ensure a memorable vacation, Starfish Cottage offers good views and a nearby-by 6 mile jogging and bike trail. Enjoy the offerings of two water sport centers a half-a mile away, where you can rent a kayak, sailboat or paddle-board, Jet Ski or pontoon and cruise the Currituck Sound. For a more relaxed pace enjoy the boardwalk and trail meandering around Duck and take in the lush maritime forest setting.

The charming town of Duck offers shopping, nightlife, superior dining, a boardwalk and Town Center with morning yoga and exercise classes, many children's activities, movies and free concerts.

A sampling of what vacationers to Starfish Cottage are saying in their own words: wonderful, large outdoor shower; peaceful decks on two levels; beach toys for the kids; a wonderful home that is comfortable for adults and kids alike; a treasure so close to the sea; evening walks to the sound; dolphin watching; surf fishing, sand bars and warm sea water; tuna on the grill; naps in the hammocks

Reviewer Comments:

We decided at the last minute to spend a week in the Outer Banks, and this was such a nice little house for us! We have been going to the Outer Banks for over 30 years, and although this is an older home, it is quite charming with many little touchs and admenities. Also very close to the beach and lots of great shopping and restaurants. We had such a fantastic time!

Reviewer Comments:

We had a great time at the cottage. It is such a good location, just a quick walk to the beach on one side and to the sound on the other. We loved the sound side pier that was added a few years ago. Great sunset watching. I love the wrap around deck, a great place to hang out after the beach. The kitchen set up is great with the long bar and stools for people to hang out together.

Owner's Response: Dear Joanne I knew you would love this home! So close to the beach and a kitchen designed to be just what one needs! We just went by the home and took some pics of the sound-side pier- it is just lovely! We'll add them to the website real soon. Thanks again for staying with us! See you soon!

Family Fun

  • 5 of 5

Have stayed here many times and have always been pleased. Great enclosed, outdoor shower, grill area, and even fish cleaning sink for your daily catch. Bedrooms are good sized with comfortable beds. The cross-ventilation on summer evenings is wonderful while listening to the ocean. Don't miss trying out the hammocks!

Reviewer Comments:

Our rental experience was fine. The home didn't look quite as it appeared online. The upstairs shower curtain liner was covered in mold, luckily there was a replacement below the sink. The stairs and entrance were covered in spider webs and bugs, which made entering and exiting with a 2 month old a little more difficult. There were a number of outlets that just did not work or wouldn't hold a plug in. The location and proximity to the beach were great, however the home could use some updates and some TLC. It appeared to not have been really looked at or cleaned up prior to our arrival.

Owner's Response: Dear Justin, Thank you so much for taking the time to review STARFISH COTTAGE. I am extremely disappointed you encountered a number of housekeeping issues upon your arrival. As you can see by other reviews, this is NOT the way we would like to welcome our guests. Our Vice-President, Debbie Hartlove, will be contacting you shortly to offer her apologies and to make things right. We are delighted you found the proximity to the beach and Carolina Shores Vacation Rentals to be wonderful and we hope to see you again next summer!

Reviewer Comments:

We loved staying at Starfish cottage. It had everything we needed, well appointed with all the comforts, appliances and amenities from home. We enjoyed the very short walk to the beach every day, the outdoor shower after our day at the beach and lounging on the deck and in the hammock. We enjoyed the feeling of being in a "home away from home". Highly recommend for a family holiday. 1 week is not enough.

We liked the location of Starfish Cottage, it was an easy walk to the beach access boardwalk. We were happy with the bedrooms, but the bathrooms and the kitchen could both use an update, and the carpet in the living room looked like it was also due to be replaced
