Starfish Wishes a 10

by Green Bay Wi

5 of 5

Overall Comment

Amazing location with a short 9 minute walk to the beach. The whole whole Sea Grove community was great for morning and evening walks. Home was perfect for our family. Short drive to store to buy firewood for outdoor fireplace. The grill should be replaced, would not turn on after many tries but not the cleanest, very rusty. Restaurant recommendations Bruno's Pizza and The Big Chill in Watersound and Pickels Burger and Shake in Seaside for kids and adults.

Wonderful Fall Break

We had a great time at Starfish Wishes. We rented bikes and used the car solely for grocery runs! The house is like new and the bunks in the bunk room are really queen size! The property was clean and a short bike ride to the beach and Seaside. The kitchen could use a few more spoons, but otherwise well stocked. We had a great time and would stay there again. The neighborhood is nice and private - a little off the beaten path, but still close to everything.

Our family of 8 had a wonderful stay! It is clean & spacious. The bunk room was perfect for the 4 kids. Being able to walk to the community pool, basketball/tennis court was a dream for our kids. The beach access was good, too. We will definitely stay here again, if we travel back to the area.

Beautiful Home

Overall Comment

I was very impressed with Starfis Wish. I did not know it had recently been renovated and when arrived the interior was impeccable. The space was perfect for my group and everyone was very comfortable. The outdoor patio with fireplace is lovely to have for after beach evening cocktails. The location is great as well easy to get to beach access and restaurants. I definitely will book again. Only drawback, don’t bother trying to wash your clothes the washing machine is terrible, it works it’s just a terrible machine. The small toilet by the front door should only be used lightly as it is slow to flush/ clog.

We stayed for a week and it was great! We would definitely stay here again. The walk to the beach was about a quarter of a mile so you need a wagon to carry everything. Overall the house and neighborhood were great!

Great house

Love the neighborhood and the house was what was promised and expected. The one thing that was disappointing and cost us more - was the grill was rotted out and not useable. We like to cook in and grill and had to go out most every night.

A great vacation rental

We enjoyed this house and neighborhood. It is in a great location (between the two pools) on a quiet street. We were very glad to have the two screened in porch areas. The outdoor shower was very helpful to have with young children. The kitchen had all the cookware and storage containers we needed and was of good quality. We would gladly stay here again!

This was our first time renting a house, while visiting Florida, so I wasn't sure what to expect. Starfish Wishes was such a great place. We had more than enough room for 7 people and I loved the location. I would highly recommend this house and area.

Perfect Family Getaway

by Windham NY

Overall Comment

I am from Birmingham, AL and grew up coming to the beaches of Walton County and now live in New York City. I wanted a home setting in this lovely part of the world for a family reunion with my sons, my mom and step-dad, aunt and close family friends to meet my sweetie from NYC (who had never been to these beaches) and Starfish Wishes was absolutely perfect! No we all did not stay in the house it was just five us us the rest of the crew had their own accomodations close by, but the open kitchen, screened porch and deck with fire place and grill offered the perfect setting for a cookout with the family and it meant so much to me to have a place to host this large group and feel like a family again. We loved it and hope to book it again next year!

Thank you for submitting your review! This is what it is all about - making family memories that will last a lifetime. We are so glad you chose to let us be a small part of this! We also have several other properties in this same area - Grove By the Sea - so if you have a larger group we can work with you to get everyone in the same neighborhood! With the pool and the beach just down the road this is truly a fantastic location. If you haven't experienced the beaches of 30A in Walton Co then you are missing out! Get this on your bucket list now and give us a call - we can help make this dream a beautiful reality!


BEST location!

Overall Comment

Starfish Wishes is indeed a "cozy" cottage - a little bit small, but the layout is perfect. It's nice to have the back porch for dropping off things when coming in from the beach. The interior was clean as could be, but the exterior could do with some power washing / clearing of leaves & pine needles. The Queen bed was mushy and the King hard as a rock, but the linens were nice and felt new. We LOVED having the bikes. We had a few minor issues come up during the week for which we had to contact the property service and they responded very quickly and courteously. This neighborhood is so lovely and truly relaxing.

Thank you for submitting your review and we are so glad you enjoyed your stay! We are absolutely looking in to the various beautification projects we need to do for all of our properties. This is a great neighborhood - definitely has that "Old Seagrove" feel which is exactly as you said - "truly relaxing". We do hope that you join us again soon!
