“Nice beach house in a great location”
Reviewed July 1, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We had a great vacation in this beach house. The owners supplied us with a lot of valuable hints with recommendations for beautiful beaches, nice excursion and good dining. The house is equipped with everything you need. The beautiful pictures do not match reality as the house is not as new, clean and big as it appears to be. After a little disappointment at arrival we got used to it and enjoyed our stay.

Hello Dieter and Family,

I am glad you had a nice trip to The Outer Cape and that you found our local hints helpful. I especially appreciated your easy going candor via texts when your stay overlapped the birth of our second child. Our caretaker also indicated that you all left the house in very nice condition upon departure. A+ guest review :)

I have to say that any deception regarding the cottage is purely accidental and in the eyes of the viewer. For anyone reading this review: I will be very explicit about all the things this guest found "disappointing." I will further note that we have only had 5 star reviews regarding all this, and more, on the other site we list with.

Sea Star was built in 1950 and was completely renovated between 2014 and 2015. Every item in the house (appliances, furniture, fixtures, mattresses, linens, you name it) is less than 1 1/2 years old, besides a couple cabinets, dressers and the dining table which give the home a bit of its old charm. We are working all the time to add both aesthetic and functional upgrades.

The cottage is 800 sq. ft. inside, which is very spacious by Outer Cape standards. If you take a look around, particularly in our price range, you will find it to be about twice as roomy as most properties listed for sleeping 4. We live at Sea Star full time for a couple months each year and find it very comfortable, even when hosting numerous guests.

Sea Star is cleaned, of course, between each group of guests, by our trusted local friend. She strives to make it just as we ourselves would hope to find it if we were to show up as renters. Her job includes making sure renters find the home well stocked with the essentials, plenty of propane in the grill, happy plants in the window boxes, etc. Her directive is to utilize only the safe, effective, green cleaners we provide, so no, the house will not have a chlorine bleach sparkle or scent, but you won't be breathing or ingesting harsh chemicals either.

I hope this all proves helpful to anyone making a decision about a future stay.

Your Host,
Sarah Sahl

We stayed at the Sea Star with our two toddlers and loved the place. Lots of toys that the kids enjoyed!
Great location and very cosy and clean. Kitchen is fully equipped and we enjoyed the free Wifi/Netflix/Roko. The cottage is small with two bedrooms - just perfect for a couple of days. Sarah and Taylor also had a bbq on the back yard, perfect for making meals in the evening.
Only thing negative, there has been animals (cats) in the cottage, both me and my spouse are very sensitive and allergic to fur animals. It would be great if this was stated in the ad in the future.

English translation via Google:
The house is very nice and tastefully decorated and in good condition. The decor (kitchen, bathroom, bedroom) is appropriate and good, the beds good and firm. With the two bedrooms the house is suitable for families with 2, maximum 3 children or for 2 couples. The house is essentially quiet, sometimes a bit uneasy because the neighboring boats lends and cleans this morning etc. From the house you can walk to the beach or - by car - beautiful activities (dimming walk, Whale-Whatching ...) . The information of the landlord is available early and complete.
