We had a great time and the blue dolphin was the perfect accommodation for our extended family. Plenty of room for everyone. The backyard beach and pool were a hit for all. Thanks for showing us the spooky fun in the garage as well

Beautiful and spacious.

  • 5 of 5

This spacious rental accommodated our large family perfectly. The heated pool, hot tub and volleyball net were definitely favorites. The location was perfect, only minutes from grocery stores and also the beach. We had excellent and prompt customer service. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend this rental if you're wanting a relaxing vacation while still having the option to get out and visit some attractions.

Great for families

  • 5 of 5

We had 6 adults and 4 children between my parents, my sister's family and mine. The house is great to keep the kids occupied with tether ball and the pool, and has enough space that we weren't on top of each other. The beds were comfortable, and everyone slept well. My Father especially enjoyed their Bunn three burner coffee pot. We need a lot of coffee in the morning, and it was a nice touch!

Blue Dolphin Manor

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for a family reunion. It was great. 5 grandkids had a great time at the beach, the private pool, the private hottub or the fenced yard that was all sand with plenty of toys. 5 bedrooms and 3 baths. Huge living room, tvs in every bedroom. AC worked great. Kitchen had everything we needed. Used the outdoor charcoal grill a couple of nights.
