July 2017 Stay
Perfect size house for 10 people. Great location to beach and Newman was quick to respond to any issues.
It was such a sweet place to stay. Our large family loved it. The pool was amazing. Very clean and beautifully landscaped. We booked it on Saturday (a very pleasant experience) and were there on Sunday. Thank you for the perfect vacation! We will be back!!
2 families with small children
Pros: The location was good. The space was just right for 2 families and 4 small children. It is walking distance to the beach.
Cons: the air conditioning is awful. The place never cooled down below 79 degrees. It's obvious the unit needs to be replaced and has been "rigged" several times. There are roaches everywhere and one even came home with us in my car from one of our peices of luggage. There are also piles of fireants in the backyard around the pool. The refrigerator, dishwasher, and washing machine do not work correctly and all should be replaced.
The house is cute and the pool is just the right sized for kids just learning how to swim.
Bottom line is the owners need to spend the money to get this place working for families to stay here comfortably. No one wants to be up all night in sweat from the house not cooling down. It took 3 days for Popsicles to freeze, the washer is covered in black mold under the deal, and the dishwasher smells terrible.
Thank you for writing this review. We appreciate all of our guest's feedback. We agree that Dolphin’s Cottage has many great amenities. One of the main draws is the location. Being a short distance to the beach and access to many local shops and restaurants, it does not get better. We are sorry you experienced these issues during your stay. We are happy to report that the owner just completely renovated the home. Including adding square footage to the property. There is new bedding, paint, flooring, appliances, stackable washer/dryer, renovated bathrooms, new A/C unit, new siding, and the list goes on. We would love to have you revisit this property and experience all the upgrades. We know you'd be “wowed.” We hope to see you soon.
Wonderful set up for 2 families. Large spacious living and dining area. Amazing back yard
This home was perfect for our visit. We had 2 families and the set up was perfect. Loved the back yard with the heated pool and the short walk to the beach.
