                        We booked our vacation a year in advance for this fantastic home along with 4 other couples and children. I would have to say that this was the most fantastic vacation that we have ever had. The accomindations were top level. Everything exceeded our expectations and we will be returning for many years to come. From the balcony on the front of the house you can see the spot where my wife and I were married back in 2009. Note for the owners..thank you for allowing us to create a life time of memories with the use of your home. 10 stars if that is possible!!

                        House was perfect and just as described. A perfect location for rehersal dinner for 50! We slept 35 at the house comfortably. Would do it again. Paradise Beech folks do a great job, easy to work with and quick and easy check in/out.

                        This house far exceeds the photos on line-this is our 2nd year staying at the Dolphin House and both years were wonderful-we just left yesterday and had 12 adults and 14 kids ranging from age 5-18 and everyone had a blast-the pool is such a nice retreat from the hot sand. The kitchen table is awesome-and the owners are like family! We will be back next year! LuLu B

                        what a magnificent home. Each room is spacious and beautifully decorated. So comfortable and the lay out of the house is perfect. Many happy, big family meals were shared by both sides of the family. We appreciated the houses proximity to shopping and down town events. The owners bent over backward to meet our needs. They are a wealth of information. This is the perfect way to house a large group......comfortably and reasonably. My daughters wedding day was a great success. The catering company loved the huge kitchen, double dishwashers.....HUGE family room that easily transformed into a gorgeous wedding reception room-seating 50 with ample room...AND GREAT VIEWS OF THE OCEAN RIGHT BEHIND THE BRIDE & GROOM...Thank you so Much! Jodi & mike

                        Owner response: Thank you Pat! We are so happy that we could make your daughter's big day an extra special one! We try to be as helpful as we can and we appreciate your compliments. We hope that your family will consider staying at the Dolphin House again and make more great family memories at Pensacola Beach!

                        Stayed in the Dolphin House for a long weekend this past week. Had 25 of us staying in the house and never felt like it! Enjoyed a beautiful beach wedding ceremony in front of the house and the celebration on the front deck and in the main level kitchen/living area. This house was beyond my expectations! Incredibly clean and beautifully decorated. It had everything you could possibly need for a beach vacation. I wish it had been warmer so we could enjoy the pool and tiki bar area. The only things I wish were different were the pool to be heated and the house could use some area rugs to help with the noise absorption, you could definitely hear everything going on in the house at night time when it was quiet. Other than that, I really can't express how wonderful our time was there. I would recommend this house without any hesitation. The owner was incredibly helpful and prompt with answering any questions. My family is already planning a return to the Dolphin House : )

                        Owner response: Thanks for the nice comments and we are glad you enjoyed the home. The pool is not allowed to be gas heated due to the closeness of the Gulf front beach. We have had area rugs in the past but with so much business and beach going guests, it was impossible to keep them clean and up to our high standards for our many guests. Please do come back!

                        We had our wedding here last weekend and couldn't have asked for a better place for it! Our priority for the weekend was to be able to spend lots of time with our guests and the house made that happen for us. We were able to have our immediate families and most of the wedding party stay there and the house was also a gathering spot for people staying at hotels. It didn't feel crowded, even with over twenty people staying there. The big kitchen and two dishwashers were great and we loved the huge kitchen table for everyone to gather around. We used it and two round tables for our rehearsal dinner with about 40 people and it worked out great without even any decorations. We put all of the food on the bar and showed our photo slideshow on the TV in the living room. The direct beach access was perfect. We had our wedding on the beach across the street and reception under the house. The pool area would have been ideal with the bar and space for our band and dance floor. Unfortunately, it was too cold and windy, but the area under the house was just fine with rented tent walls and heaters. It was so convenient to be able to rent tables and chairs right at the house and with new chairs, no need to worry about chair covers. Mike and Jodi were so helpful, particularly all of Jodi's suggestions for vendors since we're not from here. We got so many comments from our friends and family about how perfect the house was for something like this. Maybe we'll have to throw a big anniversary party in a few years so we'll have an excuse to bring everybody back!

                        Our family had a great reunion at the Dolphin House in August 2012. There were 30 of us. The house was perfect. We traveled from several states and there was plenty of parking for those who drove. The decor was beautiful and very very clean. We had persons ranging in age from 1 to 80, and there was always something for everyone to do. The beach sand is like fine white sugar. The pool and the tiki hut were used every day. We loved the front porch with ample room for all of us to enjoy. We gathered there every morning for coffee before breakfast. The kitchen table was perfect for our large family. We were able to have buffet serving on the long granite kitchen island. The owners were helpful and quick to respond when we had questions or needed anything. I can't say enough about how pleased we were with our accomodations. I highly recommend this property for large families or reunions.

                        We have been staying in different beach homes every summer for several years now. The dolphin house is by far the best place we've ever stayed and we are excited to make this our permanant destination every year! The owners were great and to sum it up, they thought of everything when building this home...details like double appliances, the TV's in every room and even child safety features! There was plenty of room for everyone in our group. The bedrooms were more than spacious along with huge closets, the cubby rooms were perfect for the kids and most importantly there was a bed for everyone. The kitchen area was huge with a dining table that was large enough to sit 22 of us together at one time. The pool area was perfect with plenty of space around the pool for everyone to lay out in chairs or cool off in the pool and we loved the Tiki Hut equipped with outlets!. Even the porch was large enough for all of us to sit and relax together. Also there are no homes between the beach and the Dolphin house giving you a perfect view of the beach and so close to the water that you could go back and forth all day long if you want. We are looking forward to coming back next year and every year!

                        This house and its' owners are in one word "incredible"! The whole experience was so amazing I don't know where to begin. This house was rented for a wedding and reception which could not have gone any more smoothly thanks to the owners. They were in touch with suggestions and references. In January here there can be surprise wind, rain and cold but there were alternatives no matter what the surprise. Luckily, we only had wind and cold but the owners were there to see that our plan went accordingly. When you try to coordinate many people to put up walls, tables, chairs, and large propane heaters timing is everything. Everyone showed up as scheduled taking the stress off of me, the mother of the bride. The house will hold many, many people but with so much space it never felt crowded. The kitchen and prep bar was the center of many meals. We were even able to have a catered rehearsal dinner for 50 on the first level of the house without being cramped. With the game room upstairs, we hardly saw any children because they were always upstairs or playing outside. The views of the ocean and sunsets were awesome from the front porch. In this house we made new friends, it holds many wonderful memories and we will be back for future visits.

                        Owner response: Wow is my first reaction and our family appreciates you. Thanks for the kind words and we did our best to make sure you were satisfied and that the bride was pleased!

                        The pictures do not do justice to this house! It is so much more beautiful in person. We immediately fell in love with it. The biggest problem we had is that we were in town for an event that kept us away from this house during the days. We wish we could have spent more of our trip actually in the house. We had dinners at the HUGE table, easily fitting all 17 of us around it. The view from the kitchen is fabulous, too. There are no other houses blocking your view of the gulf. There was so much room & everybody got to sleep in a bed...a real bed. In the past when we've rented houses in the area, some people have ended up on futons or bunk beds, but not here. The owner is very friendly, too. He even stopped by on our first morning there to make sure everything was OK.
