"We have been to Flagler Beach before, but only for a week at a time. The winters here, in Northeast Ohio,were getting colder, with ridiculous amounts of snow. On one -13 degree day, I said to my husband, we have to escape these winters. We were familiar with the area of Flagler Beach, so that is why we chose to go back . This time for eight weeks, and the only way we could do that, is to take our dogs, as we could never leave them for that long. We were lucky enough, and feel blessed to have found the Dolphin House. First let me say, it is BIG. Lots and lots of room. It is very clean, and inviting. The back yard is private, and fenced, which was perfect for the dogs and it is for sure, an outdoor living space, with all that it has to offer. The pool is beautiful and huge, and although some of the days were to chilly to go in, just sitting by it, was very peaceful and relaxing. The tiki bar was wonderful, for evening cocktails. We would fish in the canal, off the back (catch and release) and could even do that if raining, as we were covered by the large pavilion. The neighborhood is quite, and neighbors were friendly. I walked everyday, and there is a wonderful park at the end of the main street, that has boardwalks out to the water. We saw so many different birds, and also a large turtle. While were there , a new restaurant called Hidden Treasure opened on the intercostal, which is right around the corner . We went there a few times, and loved it! The Flagler Fish Co. and The Funky Pelican at the Pier, were also some of our favorites. Publix is exactly one mile away, so grocery shopping was easy, and fast. A great open kitchen to cook in, and a large laundry room were an added plus. Very comfortable beds, and that shower in the master bed room is fantastic! Deborah, was helpful with anything we had concerns about. The coffee maker acted up, and even though there was another one, she had a new one sent to the house the next day! I was sorry to leave but we have already reserved our stay for 2017, for 8 weeks and would even stay longer, if possible, but someone else has dates booked. We were so pleased and so happy, that we already are counting the days until our return."
