Great location but too small.

  • 3 of 5

We absolutely loved the location of Dolphin Watch 1. You really can't beat it. It's directly located on the beach with direct access. The kitchen is fully equipped with whatever you might need. The parking was not an issue for us as the owners were not there so we were able to park 3 cars comfortably. The chair company, 30A Shade, was awesome. They had our umbrella and chairs ready each morning early. . We also LOVE Live Well and I highly recommend their services. We used them for boogie boards, paddle boards and a bon fire on our last night.

*Downside...

We had a total of 7 people, two 'grown' adults, two 10 year old girls, one 15 year old boy and two 18 yeae old kids. The space was really just too small for all of us. Also, the top bunk does not have rails that we could find. We called the manager and never heard back from him. We tired to purchase one at the two local Walmart stores but they did not have one. This presented a problem as we could not use the bed.

We'd stay here again if it were a little bigger and we'd bring our own railing for top bunk. :)

Well maintained, everything that was promised in the description, and a great location.

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent time, it was very convenient to be located right on the beach. The house itself was very nice and then you add the Gulf of Mexico and white sands. It can't get any better.

Wonderful Place

  • 4 of 5

We had a great Thanksgiving stay at Dolphin Watch. It was great being able to watch the kids from the balcony. The unit had everything we needed. This beach is one of the best areas - because you are between Seaside and Rosemary, but you are right on the beach, don't need to worry about parking and have a pretty quite beach. Will go back next year!

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic vacation here. My husband, daughter, son-in-law, 8yr old grandson, and I stayed from a Wednesday to a Wednesday. The owners were there, while we were, in the above unit. They are the nicest people you'll ever meet. Before we arrived she helped me with paperwork to get the fire permit to have a bonfire on the beach to cook s'mores. He fished and brought us fresh king mackerel to grill for fish tacos. He even let us take our grandson out on his boat to fish. They are truly delightful to deal with as well as to talk to but didn't interfere at all. To stay right on the beach is the way to go! It was great to have the ice maker. No buying and hauling ice! The kitchen was stocked well with what you need and I cooked quite a bit. It was also great to have access to an outdoor grill. We arranged to have umbrellas to be set up everyday thru 30A Shade but we took our own chairs. The 2 car only parking is no joke because it's on a cul de sac. When we had guests they parked at the end of the street. The only thing that I expected to be different was the queen bed in the master instead of a king. It is cozy and comfortable and well laid out. Coffee from the deck in the morning watching the Dolphin on 3 occasions, and a drink at sunset looking at that gorgeous beach--------is there much better?

This is where we go!...year after year after year

  • 5 of 5

This place is Amazing! We've been here so many times that I've lost track. The location of this place with your own private access to the beach both play a huge part in why we stay here.

With the private access we don't have to lug ton of stuff to the beach, if you want a quick sandwich, run upstairs make it and you'll be back in the sand in minutes. You have a private shower on the deck to clean off the sand and cool off before you go in. Our little ones love this place. When they would get tired they simply go upstairs take in a little AC, get a snack, maybe grab a nap in the bunk beds and come back to the beach charged up for another round.

The location is a couple of miles from Publix (grocery store). We're so jacked to get there and get everything unloaded, get to the Publix, buy way to much food, be back to the house unload the groceries and be in the sand with plenty of time to spare before the sun goes down on the first day.

My plan has always been same, once we get to the house, we would have no reason to leave....now the real story is that my wife and 3 daughters have a different plan than me. They love running down to the food and shops at Seaside, again about 2 miles away.

As amazing as this place has been for my family it's only second to the amazing people that own it. From the first time we stayed here they have always made me feel as if we were longtime friends and that means the world to me.

Great Beach House

  • 5 of 5

Dolphin Watch was a great beach house for 2 families vacationing together. Each family had their own bathroom and space, the kids had one room to play in, and the living area was large enough for us all. The kitchen was great for cooking meals when we wanted to stay in and we even grilled one night. We got to meet the nice couple who owns this house and they are very sweet, they even called Sunday morning just to make sure we arrived safely! We always enjoy vacationing in Seagrove and you can't beat being right on the beach.
