This place is Amazing! We've been here so many times that I've lost track. The location of this place with your own private access to the beach both play a huge part in why we stay here.

With the private access we don't have to lug ton of stuff to the beach, if you want a quick sandwich, run upstairs make it and you'll be back in the sand in minutes. You have a private shower on the deck to clean off the sand and cool off before you go in. Our little ones love this place. When they would get tired they simply go upstairs take in a little AC, get a snack, maybe grab a nap in the bunk beds and come back to the beach charged up for another round.

The location is a couple of miles from Publix (grocery store). We're so jacked to get there and get everything unloaded, get to the Publix, buy way to much food, be back to the house unload the groceries and be in the sand with plenty of time to spare before the sun goes down on the first day.

My plan has always been same, once we get to the house, we would have no reason to the real story is that my wife and 3 daughters have a different plan than me. They love running down to the food and shops at Seaside, again about 2 miles away.

As amazing as this place has been for my family it's only second to the amazing people that own it. From the first time we stayed here they have always made me feel as if we were longtime friends and that means the world to me.

Great Beach House

  • 5 of 5

Dolphin Watch was a great beach house for 2 families vacationing together. Each family had their own bathroom and space, the kids had one room to play in, and the living area was large enough for us all. The kitchen was great for cooking meals when we wanted to stay in and we even grilled one night. We got to meet the nice couple who owns this house and they are very sweet, they even called Sunday morning just to make sure we arrived safely! We always enjoy vacationing in Seagrove and you can't beat being right on the beach.

Perfect family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Dolphin Watch! The house was clean and the kichen was truly fully stocked! The beds were comfortable and the house had a very relaxing atmosphere. The beautiful view from the deck was spectacular and we even saw the dolphins several times! Our family all agreed that it was a perfect vacation spot and would love to come next summer too!

Fabulous family vacation at Dolphin Watch

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful stay during my teenagers Spring Break. The home is lovely with large bedrooms, nice den, updated kitchen and fabulous deck ( huge) overlooking a gorgeous white beach! We loved the beach, took advantage of chair rental service which was super. This is a great location, bike ride or short drive to Seaside. We liked being in a quieter area than the hustle/bustle of Seaside. Enjoyed cooking in the big kitchen and also eating out several nights. Fabulous home, comfortable beds and great views!! We will come again!! Thank you to the Buntin family for their hospitality!!

Adorable home, wonderful owners, superb location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Dolphin Watch I and LOVED it. We actually got to meet the owners and they were just wonderful people. The house itself was very well maintained, super clean, and extremely well stocked. There were even a bunch of floats and boogie boards for our use there at the house.

The location of this house is the real key though. It is on a dead end street that ends at the foot of a very high end neighborhood with a private beach area. So, the area directly in front of Dolphin Watch is pretty much the least populated area of the whole beach. And, you are literally steps from the ocean. I don't think you could find a better location anywhere in the Seagrove area.

When you are there you should do the chair rental from 30-A Shade. It's well worth the money. They set up and break down for you each morning and evening and make sure you get the best spot right in front of the house. The owner, Jimbo, also does fishing charters. My husband did a 2 hour charter and literally caught a boat load of fish.

I honestly can't say enough good stuff about the house, the area or the owners of Dolphin Watch and 30-A Shade. We can't wait to go back next year.

Wonderful memories with our children!

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect place for a family. We have stayed at Dolphin watch 2 years in a row and are hoping to stay a third time in 2013. The house has plenty room, beautiful views to the beach and is just a short walk down to a little inlet where our girls love to play!
