Prior to a wedding, my family of ten decided to take a few days before to unwind and essentially just relax before the big wedding day. This house was perfect for that and it was so well kept and apportioned. The entire backside of the house has rolling windows and we simply left them open all the time to have an unobstructed view of the ocean, smell the salt air and watch the waves. The beach and our own private walkway was wonderful and we also loved having the outside showers to get the sand off of us. At the end of the day, this was a spectacular visit and house. Lastly, Wanda was so great to work with and she made it such a pleasure. We'll be calling here again soon!

Our vacation at Dolphin Retreat couldn't have been better. The house was perfect. We had 5 families from 3 states and two babies. We each had our individual space. Wanda provided the items we needed for the babies so we didn't have to pack as much. It was great to have beach chairs and beach toys. The beach was so peaceful and quiet. It was the perfect place to have our first vacation with our daughters, their husbands and new babies and our nephew and his family. Those who wanted to see the sites were close to the old city, Capp's and the Reef were wonderful dining experiences. My cousin's came from Jacksonville for a mini family reunion and it was perfect to cook-out, relax on the deck and the beach and watch all the kids play. Hope to be back next year.

Great Wedding Location!

The house was excellent. There were a few minor issues but Wanda took care of them quickly. She even had a plumber show up @ 10pm to fix the shower! Bed's were comfy and clean, no bed bugs here! Just an excellent home. Plenty of dishes, pans, and other cookware. The view from the living room, dining room and master bedroom makes this house. I will never forget waking up next to my new wife while looking out at the sunrise. Just incredible. The beach was amazing, water was perfect for swimming, some great waves and some nesting turtles during this time of the year. I highly recommend this home to any vacationing family, it is well worth it!

This was a beautiful beach house!! We needed a place large enough for at least 16...all girl cousins for our yearly get together. It was fully stocked with essentials. They thought of everything!! Very clean. More than enough room for all of us. The sunrises were amazing from the balcony!! Wanda and Ahmed were easily accessable when I contacted them. I would highly recommend this property and I already have to several friends.

Our big company stayed at the Dolphin Retreat for New Year's days. It was unforgetable time for all of us. Everyone had his own room.The house was really clean and nice. The kitchen had everything we needed for cooking and serving our holliday food. This property has really great ocean-view and clean beach shore. Also it was a short drive from the old town of St.Augustine and its main atractions. We will highly recommend this house for any kind of events for all our friends.

We had a wonderful family reunion at Dolphin Retreat over Christmas. It was a great house and met our expectations. Wanda and Dr. Bata were great to work with. We hope we can stay here again in the future.

We had the most beautiful wedding at Dolphin Retreat. We got married on the beach and it was wonderful. Our families and friends loved it. Dolphin Retreat had absolutely everything we could have wanted or needed. Can't wait to vacation again next year. We plan to do this every year. Thanks again.

Although my family's beach vacation didn't work out due to family conflict, Ahmed and Wanda were both very nice, informative and flexible. They answered any questions that I had in a timely fashion. If we are able to get things back on track for another vacation, we will definitely keep you in mind. I'm disappointed I didn't get to experience Dolphin's Retreat in person but hopefully one day I will. Thanks Ahmed and Wanda for all your help!

I can't say enough wonderful things about the home, location, and the property manager we dealt with. My youngest sister graduated High school this year and my brother's girlfriend graduated from her masters program. We are spread out all over the country and we converged on this perfect oasis and just had the most relaxing time ever. The set up is perfect. Everyone had their own rooms/bathrooms and enjoyed fishing from the beach, kayaking, deep sea fishing, and grilling out. I have recommended this place to all my friends and will probably enjoy future family vacations here.

This house was extremely large and very well equipped(especially the kitchen). Our extended family of 11(8 adults and 3 children under 5) had plenty of room and everything we needed to have a great week. The house has 20 steps to a non crowded beach with an abundance of sea shells, St. Augustine is 5-10 minutes away. The view from the main living areas is complete ocean and fabulous.One aspect that could be improved is the unseen cleanliness (under the beds and couches). We only noticed this looking for childrens toys. We would not hesitate to rent this house again and hope to in the future. All in all this was agreat experience.
