Starfish Cottage -- for Daydreams and Making Memories
Relax in a hammock with a book, your daydreams, or just enjoy the sound of the ocean and salt-kissed breezes on the wrap-around deck at Starfish Cottage -- a classic Carolina beach cottage in Duck.

You, your loved ones, and friends will feel at home in this affordable, family-friendly, comfortable retreat, featuring four bedrooms, 2-full baths, full kitchen, children’s swings, a grilling area, enclosed outdoor shower, and more – except unlike home, you’ll be less than 100 yards from beach access!

As if this weren’t enough to ensure a memorable vacation, Starfish Cottage offers good views and a nearby-by 6 mile jogging and bike trail. Enjoy the offerings of two water sport centers a half-a mile away, where you can rent a kayak, sailboat or paddle-board, Jet Ski or pontoon and cruise the Currituck Sound. For a more relaxed pace enjoy the boardwalk and trail meandering around Duck and take in the lush maritime forest setting.

The charming town of Duck offers shopping, nightlife, superior dining, a boardwalk and Town Center with morning yoga and exercise classes, many children's activities, movies and free concerts.

A sampling of what vacationers to Starfish Cottage are saying in their own words: wonderful, large outdoor shower; peaceful decks on two levels; beach toys for the kids; a wonderful home that is comfortable for adults and kids alike; a treasure so close to the sea; evening walks to the sound; dolphin watching; surf fishing, sand bars and warm sea water; tuna on the grill; naps in the hammocks

Another relaxing stay in Duck

A Guest from Keswick, VA recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in Aug, 2017
We enjoyed the newly restored beach! Well done, Town of Duck.
Our vacation goals of relaxing, reading and sunning were met.
We have simple vacation needs because we live and work complex career lives. However, we have been coming to this part of the OBX for over 35 years and there is something for everyone. You are what makes your vacation.
Hope to return next year!

Manager Response

Joanne, Isn't the completed beach nourishment great! This will definitely make Duck and all of the surrounding areas perfect for your OBX vacations. We are happy to hear that you thoroughly enjoyed your stay and plan to visit again next year.

Last Minute Getaway

A Guest from Exton, PA recommends this property
Stayed 6 days in Jul, 2017
We decided at the last minute to spend a week in the Outer Banks, and this was such a nice little house for us! We have been going to the Outer Banks for over 30 years, and although this is an older home, it is quite charming with many little touchs and admenities. Also very close to the beach and lots of great shopping and restaurants. We had such a fantastic time!

Starfish Cottage Stay

Joanne H. from Arlington, VA recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in May, 2017
We had a great time at the cottage. It is such a good location, just a quick walk to the beach on one side and to the sound on the other. We loved the sound side pier that was added a few years ago. Great sunset watching. I love the wrap around deck, a great place to hang out after the beach. The kitchen set up is great with the long bar and stools for people to hang out together.

Manager Response

Dear Joanne I knew you would love this home! So close to the beach and a kitchen designed to be just what one needs! We just went by the home and took some pics of the sound-side pier- it is just lovely! We'll add them to the website real soon. Thanks again for staying with us! See you soon!

Cozy cottage

A Guest from Asheville, NC recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in Aug, 2016
We loved staying at Starfish cottage. It had everything we needed, well appointed with all the comforts, appliances and amenities from home. We enjoyed the very short walk to the beach every day, the outdoor shower after our day at the beach and lounging on the deck and in the hammock. We enjoyed the feeling of being in a "home away from home". Highly recommend for a family holiday. 1 week is not enough.

Manager Response

Dear Valerie, Thank you so much for the wonderful review of STARFISH COTTAGE! Our team, at Carolina Shores Vacation Rentals, loves this home just like you! Don't be a back again real soon!

family beach week

Robert H. from Fairfax, VA does not recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in Jul, 2016
We liked the location of Starfish Cottage, it was an easy walk to the beach access boardwalk. We were happy with the bedrooms, but the bathrooms and the kitchen could both use an update, and the carpet in the living room looked like it was also due to be replaced

Manager Response

Dear Robert Thank you for taking the time to review STARFISH COTTAGE! We are so happy your family had an amazing time at this popular OBX vacation cottage. The convenience to the beach is unbelievable! Please come and visit with us again soon!

Few days in Ducks

Sebastien D. from London, XX recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in Jul, 2016
Ducks is conveniently located and the property is few steps away from the beach. It's a large house with all the required facilities, very quite and relaxing. Some redecorating would definitely improve the quality of the stay.

Manager Response

Dear Sebastien Thank you for the great review of STARFISH COTTAGE! I am delighted you found this popular OBX vacation home so clean and convenient to the beach! All of us, at Carolina Shores Vacation Rentals, look forward to seeing you again this summer.

A Great Week in Duck NC

Chuck A. from Waterford, VA recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in Aug, 2015
We had a wonderful week in Duck with family and some of my siblings. The weather was perfect, the accommodations spacious and clean. and the fish were biting near shore from Oregon Inlet (recommend). Long walks on the beach to the research pier are recommended too. Make sure you hit the soundside boardwalk at sunset or anytime of the day.

2015 Summer Vacation in Duck

A Guest from Keswick, VA recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in Aug, 2015
We had a wonderful stay in a true beach house in Duck.
The house was very clean and met our needs if a beach house a nice stroll from ocean and sound and comfortable seating for the reading we love to do at the beach. The one rainy day we had was perfect for reading and catching up together over the house board games. The natural landscape attracts many birds and even deer. Perfect family vacation!

Delightful Duck House

A Guest from Annapolis, MD recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in Jul, 2015
The Starfish Cottage was a delight! A perfect size for three adult couples. Mornings were spent reading and sipping coffee on the wrap around deck. We walked back and forth from the beach throughout the day (so close!). The well equipped
kitchen/dining area has an open floor plan, ideal for family dinners and game nights. The house was clean and well maintained, could use some updating but overall a fantastic stay. Watch out for spiders!

Manager Response

Dear Chelsea, It is wonderful to read about how much you enjoyed your stay at STARFISH COTTAGE. Isn't this a great OBX vacation home? The homeowner works so hard maintaining this super property so her summertime guests have a wonderful time. She'll be tickled pink reading your review. Come back and stay with us again in 2016.

Great beach access

Sherry P. from Medina, OH recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in Jun, 2015
Loved the convenience of beach access. A bit far to walk into shopping area, but we rented bikes for the week, which made it better getting around. The house could use some updating. Poor lighting...could not get several of the light fixtures to work. Several wall outlets were not functional as plugs would not stay inserted which was frustrating. Kitchen was well equipped. This house served our purpose but would look for a different house for next year.

Manager Response

Dear Sherry, Thank you so much for reviewing STARFISH COTTAGE and we are delighted you had an enjoyable stay. This cool property is definitely close to the beach and is a staff favorite! We will gladly share your suggestions with this great homeowner. She is always right on top of any suggestion.

Family Reunion at Duck

Corette P. from Durham, NC recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in Jun, 2015
My parents, siblings, their families, and their children's families have been getting together each summer for about 50 years! For the last 30-40 of those years, we have been vacationing together in Duck in the Carolina Dunes subdivision. Cottages have been added as the group has expanded. The Starfish Cottage has always been in the mix, and it is our favorite with the hammocks on the deck and the no fuss, old style atmosphere.

Manager Response

Dear Corette, Thank you for taking the time to review STARFISH COTTAGE and we certainly thank you for being a repeat client! The homeowner will be delighted with our review and can't wait for your return in 2016.

Diamond in the rough

A Guest from Arlington, VA recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in Aug, 2014
Starfish Cottage is in a prime location, just north of Duck. It is a very short walk to the beach. The upper deck had views of the ocean and sound. It comfortably fit our family of four. But the cottage would benefit from updating, such as new paint, etc.

Duck cottage

A Guest from Davistonville, MD recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in Jul, 2013
The house is a good size for a family of 5. The location, given that it is beach/sound view vs. ocean front was good - 3 houses down from the public entrance to the beach. Great weather, beautiful beaches as always. The traffic getting to/from this house, and Duck in general, is ridiculous on Saturdays and if it rains its even worse because the main road floods...
