What an amazing & unique experience! Perfect family getaway!~
What an amazing & unique experience! Perfect family getaway!~
The home and amenities were exactly as expected and just perfect for this trip. We truly enjoyed every aspect and I would imagine will return again some day! Everything that was shared with us prior to the trip by the homeowner made our adventure so easy and truly enjoyable. The owner was kind, informative and quite helpful in making our experience just as we had hoped. The screened in porch was home to much of our non-beach time! Plenty of naps, meals and board games were enjoyed in the heat of the day and on into the evening. We found the ceiling fans to be just enough to cool the air when out of the sun even midafternoon. Exploring was a daily adventure and my children both toddler and teen had a ball! The beach was quiet and well maintained. We enjoy shelling and searching for sharks teeth daily as well as just relaxing and listening to the waves. I would highly recommend this trip and this home. The photos seen on the site exactly portray the experience. We intentionally did not venture out to any attractions or hot spots. Our goal was to get away and relax and we did just that. If you are looking for time to relax and recharge this is the place for you. We feel so fortunate to have found such a slice of heaven on earth. Dolphins Pass at Little Gasparilla Island will always be special to us.

Spring Break Retreat
Spring Break Retreat
Our family really enjoys Little Gasparilla Island for our annual spring break getaway. This is the 2nd consecutive year that we have stayed at Dolphin Pass. Over the past 8 years, we have not stayed at a location for more than a single year, preferring to experience different locations, but this location was our unanimous choice for our April 2013 vacation. The home has a well-equipped kitchen and is comfortable and clean throughout. The screened-in porch works well for an early breakfast, mid-day relaxation and nightly refreshments. The numerous amenities make this a great location for our family vacation: board games, collection of DVD movies, beach toys/umbrella, chairs, kayaks, fising gear, propane grill, fire pit, outside shower, clean and plentiful bath towels, washer/dryer, etc... Cindy and Stan have been very helpful in assisting us with both of our trips- They clearly care that their guests have a relaxing and enjoyable trip to the island. A trip to Little Gasparilla, with no groceries available on the island (except for friendly neighbors), requires a little planning in advance. Cindy was very helpful in advising what we should bring with us and efficient tips for making the trip as relaxing as possible. The guest book which is left at the home provides several years' of vacation feedback from visitor's to the home. From reviewing other visitor's comments, it seems that those that have stayed at Dolphin Pass before us have had positive experences, as well. Looking forward to Spring Break 2014---

Owner response: Hi there, So glad to have had you and family become our regulars. Hope the weather is better up north for you, my sister said [ one day 30's. next 70's] I remember it well. I'll let you know about the new to be finished 3rd bathroom and any other positive changes you will find on your next visit with us. Ask your daughter if we could provide any thing else for her during the next visit that could make it even more enjoyable. Definitely hope to meet with you and family in person to share a meal next year The wine you left us for a gift was well enjoyed for our anniversary . Hope your family stays, joyful, healthy with many shared great days. Enjoy your summer, and winter and we'll see you Spring 2014 again. Sincerely, Cynthia and Stan Dyrcz
Dolphin Pass house review
Dolphin Pass house review
The pictures on VRBO accurately describe this house--the property was very clean, well-maintained, and well stocked with beach towels, beach chairs, floats, boards, bath towels/linens. Cindy was very helpful in answering any questions I had planning our trip there. I would recommend this property. The screened-in porch was a bonus--lots of seating and hammock. Property close to bay and beach by short walk. Dolphin(s) sighting just about every day.

Our Island Getaway
Our Island Getaway
My wife and I had a very enjoyable week by ourselves on the island and then were joined by our daughter and family. That week was even more enjoyable. The island is an interesting place despite being small and the house was beautiful accommodation even when there were seven of us. The open kitchen/eating area combined with the adjacent living space made of some nice together time while giving a space for relaxation and reading when that was on the agenda. All in all a vacation that is well worth repeating. The weather wasn't great for the beach but we didn't mind. We were there from Mar. 1st to the 15th., 2013.

Great Family Vacation
Great Family Vacation
My parents had this home for one week and then my family of 5 joined them. The layout of the open concept living area was bright and inviting. The kids could watch TV and I could be cooking in the kitchen and everyone still felt like they were together. The new upstairs bedroom is beautiful and the bed was one of the most comfortable my husband and I have ever slept in. Cindy and Stan were really nice to work with and communicated well. Thank you! ~the Wests and Milicics~
