Excellent walkout beach location and spacious interior!
My family and I recently stayed at the Blue Dolphin and had one of the best family trips ever! I was surprised at how spacious the house was given that from the exterior it appears small. The room above the portico was a very nice touch and was perfect for the 4 teenagers in our group! This house provides super easy access to the beach without the trouble of stairs which is a really nice set up. It's not something you can easily find on the island. Overall, the house and access to the beach was fantastic! The proximity to restaurants and ice cream shops was great and a very short bike ride away. I would recommend to the owner that the pool is serviced more than once during a week's stay. The shower in the back is great to get sand off, but you still have to trek over the back patio and side boardwalk to get to the pool and no matter how well you shower off, sand still gathers in the pool. Perhaps repairing the shower by the pool would help? We also had 2 bikes stolen from the portico, but found them down the road. Maybe a bike rack would be nice so renters could lock up their bikes? The exterior could use a little love and with some updated outdoor furniture you could easily make this house 5 stars! Again, my family had an amazing week. We will likely rent the Blue Dolphin again next year!
Hi Janine, thanks for the thoughtful review! We're glad you enjoyed your stay, and we'll get with the owner about some of the suggested improvements. Appreciate the input, and look forward to earning that 5th star next time!
Fabulous beach vacation!
Our family enjoyed staying at the Blue Dolphin. Great house that's close to the beach.
Very nice house
We loved the layout and location of this house. It's very convenient to everything on the Island. And we really enjoyed, as did all the previous visitors apparently, the absence of stairs to be climbed to use this residence. There were a few little issues & cosmetic things that need working on. The toilet in the bathroom of the master suite wouldn't flush on occasion (float valve in the tank has issues). The hot water in the bathroom closest to the main living room would take forever to get there. We just stopped using it. There were access panels to the attic removed in a couple places in the house. Not sure what that was about. All the windows were pretty dirty & coated with the salt air spray that covers everything down there. It just didn't look like they'd been cleaned on the outside in awhile.
Overall, the house was very nice & we would stay there again.
Hi Bruce! Thanks for the review, and glad you enjoyed your stay. That Beachfront + ground level combination is pretty special, isn't it?
Very much appreciate your attention to detail with the cosmetics and maintenance--sorry you had these issues, and I've gotten them right over to our Maintenance department to have them addressed.
The salt spray is a constant presence, especially in the winter. We could wash them in the morning and they'd be sprayed up by evening! But we'll get on that too. Hope you had a safe trip home, and see you again soon!
Had a lovely time at the Blue Dolphin .
The house is very inviting and the decor is eye-catching. The furniture and beds are very comfortable. We will definitely rent the house again. We also plan to tell our friends of this perfect beach retreat.
Hi Eilene! Thanks for the review, and glad to hear you enjoyed the home. We'll be happy to host you again--let us know what we can do to get that 5th star!
