- July 27, 2009

'A hot week but cool, spacious residence! What a beautiful beachfront and home!!'

'We had the best Spring Break ever at Dolphin's East this year - the kids (and parents) are already wanting to go back next year! The location was perfect, right on the gorgeous beach (close enough to see lots of dolphins) and away from the traffic in Orange Beach.'

'Lots of room for entertaining and hanging out, with everything we needed, so no reason to leave except to replenish our supplies of seafood and beer. Thank you so much for making your fantastic home available to us!! '

Fantastic getaway! Right on the beach, too!

  • 5 of 5
This beach house is everything it claims to be. You can sit out on the deck or the screened-in porch and watch the waves hit the beach. Every day, at least twice a day, we saw dolphins, jumping and playing right before our eyes. I think the adults were as excited as the kids were! Plenty of room - there were 14 of us, stayed for a week. Clean beach, white sand, the boys loved playing and building sand castles. You can rent a canopy, to shade you from the sun. Took the ferry over to Dauphin Island and visited the aquarium there - that was fun, too! When you get tired of the beach, the pool is also clean and very close to the house. You need to drive about 30 minutes into town, but that was just fine with us. We wanted more of a peaceful retreat rather than the bustle of a public beach and traffic all around. But if you want shopping and good food, the drive into town is not bad at all. Kitchen is well equipped - with lots of pots/pans, dishes etc and the charcoal grill came in handy, too. We were sad to go! The owners were responsive to our questions both before and after arrival. Especially when we arrived and had NOT written down the code to get in the door! Everyone thought someone else had it! Thanks, Shawn for sharing your big house with us! It was a charmer!

Great week at Dolphin East!

  • 5 of 5
We traveled with our daughter, her husband and 2 little boys, and could not have been happier with our week's stay at Dolphin East! Our priority was to be ocean front with a great view----and this home delivered! But, we also were so pleased with the casual elegance, spacious layout, cleanliness, and many, many extras!
The master bedroom with remodeled bathroom is like an upscale resort with an amazing balcony. In addition to a few flat screened TVs, there were plenty of beach toys and games to keep entertained.
What a beach! The sand is that beautiful soft sand with a gradual incline into the ocean with good but not crazy wave action. The community pool was also a great asset as one grandson loved the beach and the other one loved the pool.
The owners were very responsive to our questions and very organized and efficient!
It is a long way to town, but worth going to The Track and then to LuLus. And, a short walk across the road is a marina and Tacky Jacks!
We overwhelmingly recommend Dolphin East!!

Amazing multi-family vacation

  • 5 of 5
When we decided to take our first vacation as an extended family (6 adults and 5 tweens/teens) we wanted something that would be on the beach with enough room for everyone. This place delivered! The kitchen/living room/dining room had plenty of room for everything. We had all the comforts of home, including a washer and dryer which was great! There were enough bedrooms and bathrooms that everyone had their own space. The kitchen provided everything necessary for cooking, baking, coffee, etc. (only one non-stick pan though which was interesting). The location to the beach was awesome! We really appreciated all of the beach supplies...from beach chairs to toys, we used them all. We also enjoyed being in an area that had more of a quiet beach area. We had the opportunity to meet the owner, and he was great, even brought us more beach toys! Overall the description of the property is very accurate as it appeared in the listing. I would definitely recommend this property!

Awesome family time -Great accomodations

  • 5 of 5
Thanks so much for providing your home during this past week. We pray that this week during Hurricane Issac the house and beach area are being spared. The house provided us a great atmosphere to relax, spread out and enjoy our family. It was our Cooper's (4 year old)first time to the beach and he loved the "beach hide-out" upstairs for watching video's. Thanks again for providing us a wonderful week in your home and again prayers this week and hoping the storm again spared this great place.

The Quick Family July 14-21 2012

  • 5 of 5
This was our third trip to the Gulf Shores area for a family vacation and this was the very best! Spacious and perfect location, three families shared a week together and we never got in each other's way. The dining area had room for all 13 and the kitchen area had room for numerous chefs and bottle washers! We could not have asked for anything more. Beach was perfect for teenagers and boogie boards, little ones with sand buckets and adults under umbrellas. Added plus was drinking coffee in the morning on the deck watching the dolphins swim past.
