Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed at the fabulous Sands of Time (Blue Dolphin 2) house last week. The house was amazing. The decor was great. I loved everything about it. From the well equipped kitchen, the furniture, the lawn fountains, the pool and backyard, down to the great monkey in the palm tree in the front room (I called him Bobo, I am sure he misses me), and my favorite thing, the dual lion heads in the sun room! I will be remembering many times during our Ohio winters how much I loved it. Thank you 😊

Wonderful house!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic vacation. The house was a perfect match for us. It was plenty big for six adults, two teenagers, and four ages 2-6. The little ones loved playing in the sand and pool. We loved the being close to everything the gulf has to offer--beaches, sites, restaurants--yet far enough away from the crowds. Thank you so much!

Gorgeous Property!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 16 (ages 2 to 72) spent a wonderful week at this property. The home is very spacious and beautiful. The yard was well manicured with colorful trees and bushes. There was quiet sitting areas in the front and a large patio in the back. Home and yard very clean! Young children enjoyed the sandy play area, the teens loved the water volley ball in the pool while the adults sat in the gazebo playing cards or working puzzles. The hot tub was relaxing after a busy day. Perfect location to all types of shopping, dining, the different parks and most important the beach. Will definitely play another stay.

Wonderful property!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 9 stayed in this spacious home very comfortably. Our children played in the pool and sand area for hours. The home was very well equipped and even provided a crib and playpen of our 1 year old. I will definitely stay here again.

Destination wedding

  • 5 of 5

The house and yards are breathtaking beautiful. Everything we needed was at the house, plenty of linens, pack and play, pool toys, kitchenware, box fans for those who can't sleep without a fan (that would be me) The house was plenty large enough for all of our guests, the wedding ceremony and the wedding reception. I could go on and on .... Bottom line - we had a wonderful time, the house is beautiful and we will be back. oh, and I forgot to mention the property manager was very helpful as well. Thank you!!!

A Perfect Week Get-a-way!

  • 5 of 5

We had 3 families of 4, and 1 family of 3 stay an entire week. We had plenty of room for everyone. The kids loved camping out in their own room (Sun Room.) The home was very cleaned, and the owners were wonderful to work with. The kitchen was huge, we had plenty of room for all of us to move around and get things done. Everything we needed was there (pots, pans, etc) The pool was amazing. The kids stayed in there every moment we were at the house and awake :). Most def. will rent this home again. Location was great. We were just far enough away from the crowds and town, but close enough so that if we needed anything we didn't have to go far to get.

Exceptional home

  • 5 of 5

We had several family members stay for a weekend and then a smaller group stayed for an entire week. The home was outstanding. Everyone loved the size, the decor, cleanliness, sufficient beds for sleeping, as well as a more than sufficiently stocked and spacious kitchen. The covered pool was awesome and so convenient for relaxation and fun for the kids. The hot tub was akso great for the adult relaxation. The cover to the hot tub was a bit worn but the tub itself worked very well. The kids and the adults enjoyed the sand play area with the airplane seesaw and multiple sand toys to play with. It was not necessary to leave the house to have all the fun one could wish with such conveniences. However, the hot air balloon festival nearby was so beautiful and inspirational and for those who love to shop, the Tanger Outlets and other shops were mere minutes away. Multiple eating establishments were also near for those who do not wish to use the lovely kitchen--highly recommended is Lambert's Cafe (best rolls to be had anywhere). The beach was only minutes away and our grandson got to see the ocean for the first time, having a marvelous time chasing the waves along the beautiful, white sandy beach. This location has just about anything a person could want for a lovely vacation--lots to do or just a place to relax--whatever a person would choose to do. One phone call had an immediate response for help accessing the internet with a personal visit within five minutes of the call. They were very gracious and responsive to any questions we had. We would definitely recommend this for anyone with a large group. It is more than a small family would need but it would still be an awesome place to stay.
