The best vacation ever

I planned a family vacation for May 2010 and because of a family emergency had to reschedule for Sept. 2011. It was well worth the wait. The house was perfect. Right on the water and the view was breathtaking. The house is stocked with everything you could ask for. Top of the line. Anyone who chooses this location for a beach vacation will not be disappointed. Shawn, the homeowner, is great.

On the day of our wedding, the weather was mercurial, however, this did not spoil anyone's spirits or fine time. The house afforded us enough space for everything we needed, including our live musician. The house was a perfect setting, and the boardwalk with the beach view was fantastic.

Our families would like to thank you for the BEST vacation ever. We do a family vacation every year, and for the last four years its been Florida. All that is going to change since we've stayed at your home. Our kids and grandchildren keep asking can we go back? We've only been home 10 days. If anyone asks your kitchen is completely stocked, which was my concern with so many of us. We can't wait till we start planning next years vacation. We feel you have a little piece of heaven in Alabama. Thanks again for making great memories for our family.

We had an awesome time here doing everything from building sand castles and laying on the beach to just hanging around on the deck.

This house was WAY MORE than we expected it to be; and we love how the beach was not crowded.

The kids LOVED the "secret room" upstairs as they called it. (beach hang out room)

We are already planning our next year's vacation here at the Dolphin East!

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!! The Jones, Hunter and Urtz/Blazek families from Iowa.
