Sea Stars cottage has a casual elegance that is user friendly while being plump with pillows and comforts.


Below the house is covered parking on the road side. Pass through the gate/doors to find a small fenced in yard and patio/party area on the beach side. Aside from two bedrooms (one King, one queen) and a large shared bath on the main floor there is the huge open area which consists of living dining and kitchen. The kitchen offers a 6 burner restaurant style gas restaurant stove with electric oven, and seperate side by side freezer and refrigerator as well as every cooking convenience we could think of.


Behind the kitchen is additional pantry space and the "Duet" washer & dryer. The living area faces the great Gulf of Mexico mere steps beyond the covered 10 x 30' deck, which holds a dining table and chairs. The bar has a wine refrigerator. There is a wide screen TV above the gas fireplace and cushy seating for many.


Upstairs find the very special "honeymoon suite" Gulf side, complete with king canopied bed, private deck with seating and an attached private bath. Additionally on the 2nd floor are 2 bedrooms (1 queen, 2 twins) on the north side, facing the lagoon, 2 more bathrooms and a library with two twin beds.

Beautifully appointed and impeccably maintained, this is the perfect place for our annual "Beach Week."   We look forward to returning in future years.  For 25 years we have been going  to "Beach Week" on the Gulf.  Never have we stayed in such a place as well cared for as this.

Sherry, when we booked our vacation in Oct., 2010, we had no idea how much we would need "a get away" by July 2011.  We were both working in the hospital the day of May 22 when an F5 tornado ripped thru our community of Joplin, Mo. The weeks that followed left us all physically, mentally and spiritually exhausted. Your home gave us the perfect place to rest, heal, and rejuvinate.

We are really enjoying our stay at Sea Stars. We've stayed in many homes over the past 26 years at numerous beaches and we've determined yours is our favorite. Your kitchen is fantastic...extremely well stocked with everything we could ever need. My in-laws came in for a few days and we spent Christmas at the beach...a totally new experience for us, and one we'll probably do again. They are leaving tomorrow morning, but tonight we'rere heading to Louisiana Lagnaippe for a farewell dinner.

Thanks again for providing such a wonderful home. We have to look at our schedules for the coming year, but it is very likely we will be booking again--either Nick spring break or the holidays. Hope you and your family have a healthy and happy new year!!
