                                    Dancin' Dolphin is "The" perfect place to stay in Destin. It is close to everything but feels a world away. There are great restaurants & shopping within just a few blocks. Stacey is a wonderful hostess and made us feel right at home. The house is furnished beautifully and is very comfortable and spotlessly clean. It felt just like we were at home. Everything you can think of needing and more is right at hand. The pool is just the right size for relaxing in. You can hear the ocean as you lie back and enjoy the peace and quiet. They grounds and landscaping are beautiful and the side and back yards are completly surrounded by privacy fencing. Our dogs absolutely loved the yard and moped for weeks after we returned home. They loved this house even more than their own. We can't wait to return for another visit. This was the most wonderful and relaxing vacation that we have ever had. We love Dancin' Dolphin. Thank You Stacey!

                                    We had a great week staying here in Destin! The house was very nice & comfortable and although it was a little chilly to use the pool it was very nice sitting out by it. Our dogs loved the fenced-in yard and lying by the pool as well. The house had everything we needed and plenty of extras as far as linens and towels. We will definitely stay there again if we come back to Destin.

                                    My husband and I stayed with our lab at Dancin' Dolphin for a week. The house is located in a nice quiet neighborhood. We took our dog for a walk every morning and enjoyed looking at the houses and and yards. We liked our fenced in yard so the dog could roam about while we enjoyed our morning coffee on the patio. My husband used the grill to cook dinner a few evenings. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to prepare meals.The rest of the week we ate out at the many great seafood restaurants in the area. The beach is within walking distance, although dogs are not allowed on the beach. However, we took a short drive to Henderson State Park where there is a nature trail which allows dogs and we had a picnic lunch there. Grocery stores and drugstores are just a short drive away. Also, for people who like to shop, there is a huge outlet mall a few minutes away by car. We were there in early March and weren't able to make use of the pool, since the temperatures were mainly in the 60's during the week. It was nice and sunny though, so we enjoyed our stay thoroughly.

                                    This house is so convenient to everything...beach, shops, restaurants, and attractions. We stayed in the house a month and found it to have everything we needed. The kitchen was fully stocked. Comfortable bedding. Fantastic pool area but it was not the season to use it. Great fenced in yard for our dog. Very quiet neighborhood was an added bonus.

                                    What a comfortable home and beautifully decorated. Very convenient location to beach, restaurants, shopping, and movies. It was not quite hot enough while here to indulge in the beautiful pool, but we really enjoyed BBQ's in the fenced back yard. Our two little dogs were safe and really enjoyed the freedom. We hope to return again in a few months....An extra bonus was being a few miles from our daughter, son-in-law, and granddaughters. Also, wonderful neighborhood to walk and ride bikes in.Sunsets are amazing, as is the clear blue water and white sands. looking forward to a return trip as soon as possible. Would highly recommend!

                                    My husband, two dogs, and I had a great time at Dancin Dolphin. What you see is what you get here. All photos and descriptions are accurate. The property was very clean and well maintained. It is an older house but they have taken very good care of it. It was nice having a pool all to ourselves. It is a smaller pool, but perfect for a float and still very refreshing in the Florida heat. The beach is a very close walk. It is located in a great area with great restaurants nearby, two within walking distance ( The Crab Trap and 790 on the Gulf). It is located on a very quiet street without a lot of traffic. Stacey and Earl were great from the start. They always responded quickly to all emails and phone calls. They were very helpful in answering any questions and had great recommendations for activities and dining in the area. We hope to be back soon!

                                    The house its self I would say is about 300 to 400 yards from the beach, with the help of the Beach cart took less than 5 minutes. We have been coming to the beach from Panama City to Fort Morgan Alabama for the last 10 years. When you come between June and middle of August you got to get up early and put your your chairs out for a spot. So we would put our chairs out each morning before breakfast. Never had an issue getting a spot right up on the water. The house its self is roomy enough for 4 adults, 2 kids, and 2 dogs....would have been comfortable even with a few more in our party. The house its self is clean and not cluttered. There is every kind of Dish, appliance and bedding you could ever need. We always pack our own beach towels and toys but, the house had enough beach towels for the entire week and we would have never had to wash one. The gated area is nice for both the kids and the dogs. The pool is small but, its a dipping pool great for cooling off while you cook out on the gas grill. There are toys for the kids to play in the sand and in the water, we even left a few behind so we didn't have to carry the ones we brought back. Overall the house and area is great, I would suggest renting a golf cart to ride up and down old 98 as well. Restraunts and sites near by. I also recommend buying a bottle of Everglades heat seasoning. I got it at walmart and Publix...I left behind a bottle for future renters to use as well...Hope you enjoy as much as my family did.....

                                    I apologize for the late review. I am actually about to book our summer vacation and realized my mishap. The home was lovely and more than enough room for myself and family of 3 with small dog. My child and niece enjoyed the back yard until we had an un-welcomed visitor. I understand that being near the water and foliage comes with the territory. We just used the remainder of the week at the beach all day and shopping for upcoming mother's day gifts. The girls loved the bunk beds and we love the ease of walking up the street to the beach. The beach entrance was right up the street and we enjoyed seeing the same families daily. The home was clean and supplied toys for the children to use on the beach.We love to go play put-put golf, sit on the beach and read, catch up on movie rentals and allow my daughter to play in the sand (she is becoming a real beach bomb). The only issue we had was no cell reception but hey we were on vacation. We have to remind ourselves that from time to time because we both have demanding professions and staff to run. We return to Destin every year in April and will continue to do so. We plan to invest in a property one day. Thanks for having my family in your lovely home.

                                    My family spent the week at Dancing Dolphin during the middle of June. The house was very spacious and well stocked with towels, beach/pool toys, beach cart, and any kitchen utensil needed. We traveled with 3 toddlers, and 4 adults. The kids were really too little for the bunk beds, so 2 of them slept on the futon (which probably had seen better days - as we had to prop the end up with a bucket). This was our first trip to Destin, which was surprisingly "touristy". Everything at your fingertips, but the traffic to anywhere was terrible. This house is located just 3 miles outside of "Destin". We booked a dolphin boat ride and we nearly missed it because it took us 45 minutes to travel to the boardwalk which was at most 10 miles away from the house. Traffic. There is a nice sidewalk to the "public" beach - but upon arrival the first day - the beach was covered in PRIVATE Beach umbrella's. So we had to sit behind the hotel guests. We did travel to the State Park Beach which was much less crowded, but you had to pay $6 per car. If you've never traveled to Florida in mid June - it is HOT and Humid with mosquitoes. The house is surrounded by a lot of brush - which didn't help keep the mosquito population down. The outdoor shower was nice, to clean off in before entering the house from a day at the beach. The pool is rather small. Traveling with a party of 7 we weren't all able to fit comfortably in the pool at the same time. It is more like a large hot tub. All in all it was a nice place to stay for the money. Stacey was more than helpful and polite when we left an item behind in the home. The beaches were a little too crowded for our liking, and with littles (3 under 4)the house a little to far to the beach. I would recommend this to a family with older kids, or 2 couples vacationing.

                                    We stayed at Dancin Dolphin with our son, daughter-in-law and three grandchildren ages 1 1/2, 3 and 4 1/2. The home was perfect in layout for our needs. The very short walk to the beach was much appreciated with small children. We have stayed in several vacation rental homes and this is by far the best stocked with towels, dishes etc. Stacey and Earl were both very helpful with information. I would highly recommend this lovely home.
