The Starfish Experience

Thank you once again for another great holiday in Starfish Cottage. This is our third visit and most certainly not our last. This time it was especially nice as we got to meet you Cindy. We have four more days of holiday before we fly home and wish we could stay here instead of getting "on the road" again. We really feel at home.
All the best,
Susan and Bennie

Onset Cottage

Thanks for sharing your cottage with us. Our family loved coming back here after a fun day at the beach. We really enjoyed Onset. We took some beautiful walks and ate at some great restaurants. We also took day trips to Hyannis and Provincetown. Now that we've stayed at the Starfish Cottage a few times, Onset feels like a second home to us. Thanks for making us feel so welcomed. We had a great time!

Another Wonderful Vacation

My family and I stayed at the cottage in Onset for the second year in a row. Again we had a relaxing, enjoyable stay--just what we needed. The cottage is beautifully decorated and had all the amenities. We were comfortable in the cottage and slept well. Relatives visited us and they were impressed with the furnishings and comfort of our rental. The location is perfect -- walking distance to the beach, restaurants, and shopping. In addition, staying in Onset meant easy access to Cape Cod, Boston, and Martha's Vineyard. Highly recommended! show more show less

All I can say is wow!! My husband and I spent our honeymoon here, and it was absolutely perfect! Cindy and Dean were very flexible with us and provide so many amenities. It made for a very stress free preparation for our trip! It was also in a great location, we were able to walk to town for dinner or if we needed anything. We can’t wait to come back! I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone. You will not be disappointed.

Thank you so much, Shelby and Brett, for the lovely review and for choosing Starfish Cottage for your Honeymoon! We are so happy to hear that it was relaxing and comfortable after what I am sure was a busy but beautiful wedding! We love to hear that our guests felt "right at home" and that they will come back again.

We want to wish you both all the best in your marriage and hope to see you on your Anniversary!

Happy Summer!

Starfish Cottage

My sister, daughter and I stayed at the Starfish Cottage in Onset this past fall. The cottage is so tastefully decorated, cozy and has every amenity one could want. I had to communicate with Cindy several times because of changes in my travels. She was always quickly responsive in getting back to me and very accomodating to the changes in my plans. The cottage is extremely clean and very close to the Onset beaches and town. This is a very delightful cottage.

Fun time

I stayed at the Starfish cottage with my two teenage daughters. We had a wonderful time. The cottage was cozy, warm and very welcoming. Cindy and Dean thought of everything and truly made it a home away from home. The cottage was a short walk to the beach and the town. There were great restaurants and a few shops. I also liked that Onset was located just outside the hustle and bustle of the Cape, yet a short drive to so many things the Cape has to offer. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants a quiet Cape getaway. For a family or a couple getaway. I would like to mention that our hosts were wonderful ! show more show less

Thank you, Dawn, for the very complimentary review! It is so nice to hear that the cottage was "a home away from home" for you and your girls. That is music to our ears! You expressed exactly how we felt the first time we stayed in Onset before we had our own cottage, and we still feel that way. Thank you for putting it into words for other guests to read as it will help make them comfortable to book our cottage.

It was a pleasure having your all here and I do hope you can return again soon!

Clean, equipped, and as advertised

We couldn't have been happier with the rental of Starfish Cottage. Cindy and Dean were great with quick responses and all that they provided. Upon arrival, we found the cottage to be immaculate and was close to town and stores to grab anything needed. Highly recommended.

Dear Cindy and Dean,
We really enjoyed our stay at your lovely cottage. We felt at home, straight away. We did not want for a thing. Everything was provided. Some family members stopped by for a visit and all were enchanted. We are definitely thinking of coming again next year. Thank you for sharing your Cape Cod gem!

Cindy and Dean have lived in beautiful Newburyport, MA for the last 34 years and love living by the water! Cindy was a travel agent for 25 years, and also owned The Stage, a Dance and Music store for 16 years. Dean was a helicopter pilot for 15 years, a builder and then became a computer software engineer. ''Besides the ocean, we love theatre, antiquing and traveling!'' Together they have 3 grown children, 7 grandchildren and 1 great grandchild. ''We have been vacationing in Onset for years before fulfilling our dream and buying our own cottage which we love sharing with our guests!''

What is special about this property?
Starfish Cottage has a warm and welcoming feel. We furnished it with new and old and fun retro finds that we hope our guests will enjoy. ''We have tried to think of everthing so you can get right to your vacation and relax and explore during your getaway.''

What is special about your town?
Onset has long been called ''the gateway to the Cape'' and we think it is a secret place, The Victorian seaside village of Onset which is part of Wareham was once a vacation destination for the likes of Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald, Benny Goodman, Big Bands, and other Broadway entertainers and also had a casino that drew tourists to their summer cottages! It is a special place and many families come back each summer for generations. Besides miles of beach, it offers free outdoor concerts every week, fireworks, and numerous festivals during the summer without the hassle of going over the bridge! There is a listing of activities and things to do at our cottage.
