We really enjoyed our stay at the cottage. It is exactly as promised in the pictures, and very comfortable. The beds were each very comfortable and the kitchen was well stocked with dishes, including lots of glasses, which is much appreciated when traveling with kids. The location is convenient for Rathstrevor and Parksville- a nice walk to the beach, but a bit long for younger kids. However, there is plenty of parking at Rathstrevor, so you can also reach it in a few minutes by car.

The cabin was clean and nicely decorated. We loved being across from the pool. Nearby amenities and many recreational spots are a plus. We would love to stay here again.

Great unit, access, location, and property manager. It’s an above average property for those looking to stay awhile, and I’ll definitely be looking this up next time around.

This beautiful cottage really is a home away from home! We are very picky when it comes to staying somewhere other than our own home and Starfish Cottage was perfect! Julie was very easy to communicate with, check in was super simple, and the cottage had all of the amenities you could ask for and then some!

We had the most wonderful time staying at Starfish Cottage. Wonderfully located, close to a lot of beautiful beaches (Parksville Community Beach & Rathtrevor beach), and local restaurants (The Black Goos Inn!). The kids loved the warm water indoor pool and spent hours in there playing the first couple of days we arrived when the weather was a bit to cool for the beach and ocean swimming. Our kids loved it! Evening swim after dinner to drain their batteries! Our host Julie was friendly and easy to communicate with. It was a pleasure dealing with her. Starfish Cottage was clean, comfortable, and very welcoming. The cottage provided a home-away-from-home with a well stocked kitchen of dishes, cups, and the basic cooking pots/pans, and utensils, allowing me to prepare a simple dinner on our first night and simple breakfast of bacon and eggs in the mornings since we're all slow when first waking up and like to lounge around before hitting the beach around 1130am. I loved the coffee maker provided that allowed me to preset a timer for the next day were I wake up to freshly brewed coffee waiting for me. And THANK YOU for providing coffee too! (insert heart emoji here). Check-out was very easy and Julie didn't have a long list of chores for us! Expectations at check-out was basic common sense and very acceptable. Respectful to both host and guests. Most definitely my family will be returning to Starfish Cottage in the years to come.

Spent 4 days in the cottage, and it was great. We were worried about the hot temperatures, but even without AC the fans in the rooms/bedrooms and the shade kept the cottage from getting too warm. Great location to walk to the ocean. Would stay again.

The cottage was great. Very clean with a well appointed kitchen! Very close to the pool which is a great facility. Owners were very quick to respond to our requests! We had a great time with our family for the week. Thanks again!

Our group of 5 recently stayed at Starfish Cottage. We found the cottage to be exceptionally clean throughout and we had no issues during our stay. The cottage is perfectly located within the development as it is very close to the indoor pool and is only a 3 minute walk to the mini golf. We would not hesitate to book here again in the future.
