About Lisa McAleer

Our Starfish Cottage has been in our family for over 30 years. Tastefully remodeled in 2012, it is an inviting 'home away from home' in beautiful Teaticket, Falmouth, Cape Cod.

Lisa McAleer purchased this house in 1976

Why Lisa McAleer chose Teaticket

Starfish Cottage is on a nice, quiet dead end street, with the elementary school playground at one end, and Perch Pond which is great for kayaking or canoeing, at the other end. Guests can walk about a 1/2 mile to the Great Bay boat landing where you can swim or walk along the beautiful bay walk and watch the boats.

There is a great yard with a deck to relax and unwind, and grill and dine together. Historic downtown Falmouth is just a short drive away for great restaurants, shopping, and an old-time arcade with games and bowling for the whole family.

Falmouth boasts many sandy ocean beaches, including Bristol and Falmouth Heights, only 1.5 miles away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed at this cottage 4 times, and are coming again for two weeks this summer. The place is wonderful - very clean, cozy, and very convenient. It was recently completely renovated; bathroom and kitchen were remodeled (among other things). There is a very nice basement with a playroom and futon. Backyard is spacious, the deck is new. The location is perfect - beautiful beach is only a couple of minutes of driving, all the stores are near by, and an excellent playground for children is within walking distance. The place is perfect for families with children.

The owner is wonderful- very understanding and responsive to all our needs. She has been so helpful and made our stay even more enjoyable!

We love every minute of staying in this house and hope to keep coming there every summer!

Great little cottage!

  • 4 of 5

My wife, 6 month old, and I had a great stay at the starfish cottage. Very close to Bristol, Heights and Menahunt beaches. Bristol is closest at ~1.5 miles. Old silver is also an easy, short drive. The dirt road along Great Pond (Great Pond St/Rd) is a great place to walk/run!

Very inviting cottage.

  • 4 of 5

It was very convenient to several Falmouth beaches. It was a good location to a neighboring community I was also visiting. The reference to on Perch Pond I found misleading as property is not directly on a pond although there are many ocean beaches and ponds/ lakes in area.

This was a fantastic rental!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was perfect for me. A 1 1/2 mile walk to Bristol beach, conveniently located to downtown Falmouth. I enjoyed taking the Island Queen to Martha's Vineyard, visiting Mashpee Commons, spent a great day in Hyannis, visited the Bass Hole Boardwalk, Falmouth Farmers Market, Nobska Lighthouse, Highland Lighthouse, and Provincetown.

The cottage itself was perfect! It was immaculately clean. It had all the essentials for cooking at the cottage, having a barbeque on the deck. I enjoyed sitting on the deck with my coffee in the morning, or a glass of wine at night.

I brought my dog with me. We enjoyed taking a walk every evening along Great Pond.

This is a perfect rental cottage.

Cute cottage with a great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. The cottage was clean and had everything we needed and the owner Lisa was so helpful. Even our little dog had a good time going to the pond down the street every morning. The location is perfect, close to beaches, restaurants and church. Overall a very nice place to stay.
