"Amazing Vacation Experience"

"This was an amazing trip to say the least! Stefanie and her husband could not have been more accomodating. We inititally had booked the home for Labor Day weekend as a last minute getaway. Then Hurricane Dorian threatened the coast and we were concerned about the trip. Stefanie was kind enough to allow us to rebook before end of September 2020. We had never been to this area of Florida. Despite the difficulties of still recovering from Hurricane Michael, the area was amazing and the people even more so.

The beaches were largely empty other than families and lots of pets. This is a very pet friendly area and our 1 year old Roscoe absolutely loved his first ocean experience. I was able to fish off the 2nd sand bar and my grandsons each caught their very first fish (they were visiting as well from GA).

What more can I say, we can't wait to rebook next year this quiet, out of the way area. One thing of note, if you don't want to make the trip back to Port St. Joe from Cape San Blas, make sure you hit the Piggly Wiggly in town, and the outfitter next door for your beach,camping, and fish needs.

The outfitter has the most extensive fishing supplies I Have ever seen in my entire life.

Thanks again for making it a very memorable experience.

Mark, Diana & Roscoe (the American Bulldog).....

"Dolphin House had everything our family needed for a great vacation! We plan on a return visit!"

"This townhome was very clean and spacious! It was close to the beach and pool which is great for the kids. The kitchen is well equipped and we appreciated having a washer/dryer in the home. They also had comfortable beach chairs, umbrellas, fishing poles, coolers, beach toys, etc. available for us to use. The beaches were not crowded and the water is so clear! If you have a dog, this is the most dog friendly beach location we have experienced. There is a lot of green space to walk your dog and clean up bags are provided. The community is gated and we felt very safe here. We will definitely be comjng here for another vacation." — Barb Gordon Jul 30, 2018

"We had an amazing stay at the Dolphin House. It was beautifully maintained and steps to the beach. We can’t wait to return." — Crystal Litle Jul 05, 2018

"Perfect Getaway"

"We loved the townhouse and 'neighborhood' like atmosphere. Patio deck view is very relaxing and enjoyable. The house is so close to the beach which makes it really easy go back and forth with kids. The townhouse itself is great, very nicely decorated and well equipped with everything we needed.. Would definitely stay here again. We had a great time!

"Dolphin House is the Perfect Gulf Getaway!"

"We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Dolphin House! This was our 2nd year here and we will be returning in 2019. This condo is perfect for us and Barney, our 15-lb russell yorkie terrier. It is so comfortable and well-equipped and is just steps from the glorious Gulf of Mexico.
We appreciate working with Debbe, Stefani, and Bob who take great care of us!" — Joanne and Jim Berry Jan 13, 2018

"Nice Location. Unit needs work plus parking a challenge with medium sized suv."

"Loved the location. Parking was a bit limited with narrow parking area on corner lot. Was not the unit that we originally rented but agreed to move. None of the sliding patio doors lock. The townhouse complex was very well organized and a great place to walk alone or with pet. People were very friendly. If we did it over again we probably come to this development would want a unit that had better parking and patio doors that locked with functioning screens." — Michael Metzen Mar 10, 2018

"Beautiful place to stay!"

"Our stay was wonderful! Because other family members were staying nearby and on the beach, we didn't have enough time to experience "all" that this condo offered. So I would like to tell you the things we did experience. The condo was beautifully decorated and very clean. The carpet on the main level was older and worn, but you could tell it was clean. It was just the 2 of us and our dog, so we only used the master bedroom. However, the 2nd bedroom was a good size and well appointed. The master bedroom was huge. It had a very comfortable king size bed. The master bathroom had a large tub and a separate shower. The shower had good water pressure and hot water. We didn't use the tub. The condo is equipped with an abundance of towels and a large size washer and dryer for your use. The master bedroom has many outlets for your charging pleasure. The master bedroom also had a huge walk-in closet with lots of hangers. The kitchen was large and appeared to be well equipped. There were separate thermostats on each floor. Both worked excellent and kept us cool. There is parking underneath this condo for 2 smaller vehicles, but it is a little tight . Overall this condo was a nice place to stay, but it is a little expensive when you add in all the fees.

"The condo was adorable and had the "beach" feel about it. Very well stocked with all your needs"

"We thoroughly loved our week of vacation. The condo was wonderful!!! Easy pool and beach access. Will definitely be back!!!!'" — Beth Walker Jul 08, 2017

"Great Place and a GREAT Location!!!"

"Wonderful experience as usual! We will definitely be back and stay again. Thank you for such a wonderful time!! Truly enjoyed it! See you soon!!" — Ryan Heiden Jun 24, 2017

"Another great week at the Cape!"

"On of our favorite rentals at Barrier Dunes along with Family Affair which is in the same cluster of buildings and rented out by the same people. Dolphin House has a nicely furnished living area and the beds are very comfortable. Dolphin House is a very short walk across the street from the pool and the beach. We have rented from Debbie the last two years and will again in the future. She and Stephanie are very easy to work.

The only thing I can think of that would make the place better is an upgrade to the kitchen furnishings. The pots and pans need upgraded and it would be nice if the refrigerator had an ice maker instead of trays. But this is minor and would not ever keep me from staying here again. This is our seven year old's favorite condo at Barrier Dunes. She loves feeding the turtles and huge bluegill in the pond right behind the condo." — Mike Land Jun 15, 2017

"Beautifully furnished condo."

"Debbe is a wonderfully accommodating representative of VRBO." — Anonymous Mar 02, 2017

"Very warm and welcoming!"

"We loved the pond right behind the Townhouse!! The girls loved to fish and watch the Koi fish swim around the pond. They fed all the turtles and enjoyed the walking on the beach. My family will return very soon!!
Thanks for a great trip!!" — Ryan Heiden Apr 05, 2017

"We were able to visit for 4 nights and this space was perfect for our quick stay!!"

"From the kitchen to the living room to the bedroom and the bathrooms-such a cute little getaway!! The proximity to the beach and the pools-just couldn't be beat!! We will, for sure, be back!!!" — Heather Epley Apr 01, 2017

"Clean, well-stocked, centrally-located."

"Fit our needs perfectly. Fun to see all the dogs in the neighborhood." — Robyn Floyd Feb 24, 2017

"Gorgeous Gulf Getaway"

"We could not have asked for a more relaxing and enjoyable stay at Dolphin House! This was our 2nd year at this location (and 7th year at Barrier Dunes) and we loved it so much we are coming back next year. The condo is comfortable and well-equipped and the second floor master is perfect. We enjoyed beautiful weather with lots of beach time plus golf at St. Joseph Bay Golf Club. We guarantee you will never want to leave!" — Joanne and Jim Berry Jan 14, 2017

"The Perfect Paradise Getaway"

"This was our 6th year at Barrier Dunes and our 1st time at Dolphin House, and we couldn't have asked for more! We loved the location close to the beach. We also appreciated the large 2nd floor master bedroom, which was very spacious and comfortable. The condo was clean and well-equipped and the management was extremely attentive to any needs that arose.

We loved Dolphin House so much that we plan to return in 2017 with our dog. We challenge you to find a more accommodating and pet-friendly place!" — Joanne K. Berry Jan 09, 2016

"Wonderful Cape Vacation!"

"Very well maintained and extremely clean town home. It has everything you need. The only draw back is the refrigerator does not have an ice maker. I haven't used ice trays in years! Otherwise, the kitchen is well equipped. Couch and beds were very comfortable. The beach chairs were appreciated. Not having to bring your own was a plus. Dolphin House is a great place for a quiet getaway!" — Melody Tupper Jun 10, 2015

"Great trip"

"We had a great time and hope to go back soon!" — Colleen Shelfer May 22, 2015

"Perfect vacation !"

"We just returned from a wonderful trip to Dolphin House. It really was the perfect vacation spot, the unit is just as pictured, so well equipped with everything needed (and more) for a great visit. It is perfectly located close to 2 boardwalks to beach. It comes supplied with beach chairs, umbrellas etc which we appreciated as we didn't have to pack them. We chose this unit because it is pet friendly, Barrier Dunes supplies pet pick up bags to ensure the complex is kept clean. We loved watching the turtles from the decks overlooking the pond. The beach is perfect for young kids, as are the pools. The state park is right on the doorstep and well worth a visit. It is less crowded than the beach near the boardwalks. We enjoyed having a bonfire on the beach and star gazing. We also rode horses on the beach which was a great experience. We just weren't ready to go home! Book this unit with confidence, it is immaculate, clean and beautifully decorated. I'm sure you'll love it as much as we did. " — Karen White Jul 28, 2014
