About Us

Sea Star Coastal Vacations

Sea Star Coastal Vacations was born out of a love of the beach, and a desire to share that special beach feeling with fellow renters and owners.

Oak Island

Catherine’s first visit to the beach on Oak Island was in 1966. She and her family returned as renters almost every year until 1983, first traveling from their home in Illinois, and then from their new home in Arizona. In 1983, her father bought an ocean front beach house, and the family has been sharing their home with renting guests ever since.

Feel The Fun

From fastidious maintenance and property care, to luxury linens and concierge service options, whatever you need we will strive to provide. We want all of our guests and owners to feel the fun and excitement of a trip to the beach, where the biggest worry is how long before their toes can touch the water!
