Beautiful home in a great location. Every amenity you could need for a 5 Star stay. Incredible private beach and walkover. Best kept secret on 30A. Neighborhood has 2 pools but they are very small with limited seating.

Manager's Response

Thank you for submitting your review. We also appreciate your kind words and your patience as we all tried to navigate the issues brought to us by Hurricane Michael. Isn't this place adorable? It has a quaint "cottage" feel but is so spacious and comfy! The decor is lovely and it would be the perfect spot for a girls getaway with the large, open kitchen, dining and living room space.

Starfish cottage was a perfect spot for our fall family vacation. A cozy house with plenty of room to spread out. Great proximity to the neighborhood pool and beach access. Can't wait to bring the family back next year!

Overall, we had a very pleasant stay at Starfish Cottage. Great location, easy access to beach (definitely a walk to the beach but a pretty walk). Good house layout for family or several couples. The only reason I didn’t give 5 stars all the way down is the house felt pretty bare (no bath mats or kitchen rugs, kitchen supplies weren’t that great, and not even an extra trash bag) and it was a decent walk to the beach. But overall, the house is a good rental.

Manager's Response

Thank you for your review - we do appreciate all comments! This is a spacious house so there is plenty of room for all! Great open concept and it is all one level - no stairs! We will be taking inventories soon so we will make sure all the needed items are available in the kitchen so that all guests have what is needed to create some great family memories! Call Benchmark today - we would love to tell you all about Starfish Cottage and The Preserve at Grayton Beach!

Our family had a wonderful time! The cottage was beautiful, spacious and so comfortable! Everything was clean, organized and well kept. The kids loved the bunk room. We enjoyed the accessibility to the beach. We all wish we could have stayed another week. A perfect retreat for a small family.

Manager's Response

Thank you for your review! So glad you loved Starfish Cottage - we love it too! We couldn't agree more - it is very spacious and cozy! Great open concept so the whole family can be together while cooking a meal or watching Netflix! Starfish Cottage is also located in a beautiful, gated neighborhood and the beach is just a quick walk away! And just down the road in either direction you have some of the finest eateries on 30A. There is so much to experience in Walton County and Starfish Cottage is a great place to stay while taking it all in! Call Benchmark today and we will set you up!

Great Vacation, had some rain but made the best of it

Manager's Response

Thank you for submitting your review! We know how disappointing it can be when the weather doesn't cooperate! Fortunately most days are not completely lost and often times through the rain we see some amazing rainbows that form over the Gulf! This is such a wonderfully cozy home to share with your family! There is an open concept living and kitchen area that has plenty of room for everyone! There will be many family memories made around this table while cooking and dining together! The home is also located in a very quaint neighborhood with tree-lined sidewalks and an exterior gate to help ensure your safety! Oh and we cannot forget to mention - just a quick walk down the street and across 30A to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world! Call Benchmark today - we would be happy to help you secure your reservation at Starfish Cottage - family memories await!

This cottage is just beautiful and charming inside and out! When I conjure up a mental image of a cottage, I imagine a small dwelling, but he Starfish Cottage is extremely spacious! Decorated beautifully, appointed with anything you could ever need, great location, etc. We like the restaurants and shops in Seaside, and had a quick, easy ride there. Beach access is a bit of walk, but I enjoy that. I think if my kids were still small and I had to haul their toys etc., it might feel like a bit of a hike. But for me, the walk down the wooded path to the beach was gorgeous! I have no criticisms, but If I had to make one suggestion, it would be to get a bigger coffee table. Would highly recommend Starfish Cottage, and I am hoping to stay again!

Manager's Response

Thank you for your review - we couldn't agree more! This is a lovely and spacious cottage! The location is fantastic - great neighborhood atmosphere and very close to shops and restaurants of Grayton Beach as well as Seaside! Community pools and just a quick walk to the beach make this a great vacation choice for your family! There are limited dates available so call for your reservation at Starfish Cottage today!!
