Guestbook comments from the owner

Four adults and three dogs all loved our short time at your house - the beach was perfect, not crowded, easy to walk too, and dog friendly. The house was so comfortable, easy to live in, and had all the comforts of home. We liked that it was a quieter area of the Delaware beaches and we could walk to the bay side in just a minute for lovely sunsets.

Thank you again.

We stayed for a week in July with my two older parents. The location was ideal – a quick walk to the beach. The beach bathroom and shower downstairs were very convenient. My parents don’t like to be in the sun too long so being so close to a bathroom air-conditioning made the week perfect. House was clean and cared for. We would definitely stay again!

Bright, Comfortable, Convenient Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the Starfish Cottage in Dewey Beach. With easy off-street parking, a charming deck, and a roomy, cheerfully furnished interior with plenty of space just a few steps from the beach, it was a perfect home away from home. Really appreciated all the beach chairs and the convenient outside shower on the ground floor. Nice quiet neighborhood still close to all the great restaurants and activities in Dewey. Our dog loved it too! Odds are, we'll be back!

Quiet, relaxing cottage

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay, the house was very clean and well-kept, and showed no signs at all that any other pets had been there (other than the guest journal entries). The owner was very helpful and quick to reply to any questions. We and our pugs would love to come back again.

Great location, I love fall at the beach when the crowds are gone. Plenty of good restaurants open.

We had a very relaxing 5 days here, can see the ocean from the deck and hear it all the time. The cottage had everything we needed. It was the best place for our 2 golden doodles as the ocean is only steps away! Valerie the owner stopped by and had a nice conversation about the property and the history of the area as it has been in her family for years. Nice rental for a couple or small family as there are only 2 bedrooms.

Nice little cottage in a very quiet area.

Place was clean despite dogs being allowed. Plenty of windows to let in light. Nice outdoor deck area with gate. So close to the beach that I left my shoes at home. Great place to bring your dog on vacation. We will definitely be back!
