About Malcolm and Carolyn Starkey
Been a Straddie local resident since 1984, after marrying Mal who grew up here. We've raised 5 children who all went to the local school, played in the local footy team (except our daughter!), spent days out fishing with Mal, many hours at the beach or lakes and brought up on fresh fish, sunshine and fresh air, mostly all while being bare foot (shoes weren't a compulsory part of the uniform at the local school until recently - true story!)
Malcolm and Carolyn Starkey purchased this Cottage in 1984
Why Malcolm and Carolyn Starkey chose Point Lookout
We bought this property early 1984, being young and free, and after paying a mortgage on a house in a place we didn't want to be living (as it wasn't near the water) we made a choice of one of these 2 - buy a block of land at Straddie, or travel around Australia. We bit the bullet and bought our little piece of paradise, worked our butts off, started a family 3 years later, and we kept working our butts off, in the fishing industry, and tourism industry. We built our small cabin (now called 'Starfish' - which is a reference to our name - Starkey - and that we are the fishing industry) and lived in it for about 5 years while we saved and built our current home, which is on the same block of land. Now we offer our cabin for holiday rental for those wishing to enjoy the simple things in life, away from the busy main part of Point Lookout, but close enough to be there in 5 minutes
What makes this Cottage unique
We have made the space in Starfish simple and basic - It has no airs and graces, but everything you need for comfort and practicality. The mattresses are good quality, and the reverse cycle air conditioner works very well for instance. Behind Starfish is natural bushland, so wildlife is often seen on the footpaths or crossing the road (kangaroos, echidnas, and even koalas when they are on the move)
