"We stayed at the Blue Dolphin this past Thanksgiving holiday week.
We won our stay at the Blue Dolphin at a fundraising event.
The house setting is serene and sublime. It is centrally located.
It is at a walking distance from the pier, and 10 minuted walk to the beautiful pink sandy beach. It faces the west allowing us to enjoy gorgeous sun sets everyday of our stay.
At night the neighborhood comes to life. We had a chance to wittness a couple of rehersal for the Junkanoo parade, joining them in dancing. The house is surrounded by grocery stores, Arthur-the best breakfast and bakery in town, several craft stores and restaurants.
As for the house itself, well we fell in love with it. It is charming, welcoming, can easily accomodate 15 people, yet you can have your own privacy as there are 5 seperate master-bedrooms. We enjoyed having breakfast on the back porch overlooking the secluded, well maintained, attractive backyard. We enjoyed relaxing on the hammock, under the palm tree, sitting around the fire pit surrounded by a tropical lush greenery. The owners, Kathy and Jamie made sure that we are welcomed and well served. The house came with a wonderful house keeper, a friendly gardner/fisherman (who could supply you fish if interested), and a talented cook, who happened to own a restaurant nearby that served Bahamian food.
As for the native people, they are extremely welcoming, friendly and happy to serve you- except for "grouchy Mr. Jonhson" from the golf cart rental shop. Do not worry, there are several other cart rental stores. Yes, most people travel using golf cart.
We enjoyed everday of our stay. We went hicking along the southern shore, deep sea fishing, walked everyday the sandy beach. It was also the most relaxing, beautiful vacation ever. It is a piece of Heaven on earth.
The day of our departure, a feeling of sadness took our hearts as we were not ready to go back to reality. We wished if we could stay longer. But deep inside we knew that we shall return. The Blue Dolpin is a MUST."
