AMAZING!!!!

  • 5 of 5

It is impossible to put into words how amazing this house is...but I will try!

We had booked the house for a family group from the UK to stay in Florida and be close to our family living there. We envisaged ten days of visits to the beach, to the mall, to the wide array of tourist attractions nearby etc etc. However, we didn't move from the sunloungers (apart from taking a dip in the pool or relax in the Jacuzzi or try out the kayaks....) - the view from the huge waterfront property is breath-taking and we couldn't bear to leave it.

In addition to an amazing house, the owners are just the most amazing people. They did ABSOLUTELY everything they could to make our stay fantastic before, during and after our visit. We arrived to a fridge full of goodies and periodically they would pop by to drop off some homemade treats. And they were full of ideas and suggestions of where to go or what to do. Thank you so much Fabienne and Gerold for making our stay so special.

From sunrise to sunset the view from this house is just beautiful. If you want to combine nature with all the conveniences on your doorstep you MUST visit this house. We would love to visit again - we tried to book for Christmas and Easter next year but someone got there first!

Beautiful place!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Dolphina is truly a gem! We arrived late on a Saturday evening with Fabienne and Gerald waiting at Casa Dolphina to greet us with a wonderful assortment of sandwiches and treats - and to show us the property! It's even better than in the photos - the outdoor space is unmatched in anything I have seen or rented in the past - big saltwater pool (we paid for the extra pool heat which made it about 85 degrees F - which was perfect for the cooler days and evenings we had in March), hot tub, sauna, putting green, and outdoor hot shower. We pretty much lived outside - and in the glass room that faced the pool (with doors that opened all around). We used the barbecue daily - which was perfect - right by the pool so we could watch the kids (we were two families - including 4 kids under age 10). None of us ever wanted to leave the house :) - it's basically a resort without all the other people around you. The inside was also great - wonderful movie room - and very clean everywhere. Beds were super comfortable with lovely soft linens. Great set up - 4 bedrooms upstairs, one downstairs, and another just off the kitchen (if needed with murphy beds - which we didn't need or use - but a good option for bigger families). The fishing right off the dock was a huge hit - our husbands fished every morning and evenings too - often catching enough fish to make fish tacos - super good! We also used the kayaks to go over to the island in front of the house - the kids loved that! It was just the right distance away with a nice little beach over there. We also loved watching the dolphins and manatees that swam by us most days - sometimes coming up right to the dock. We also did manage to tear ourselves away from the house to go to two Blue Jays games in Dunedin (about 30 min drive away) and to watch the Leafs in Tampa (about 40 min drive) - both were easy drives. Fabienne and Gerald made sure we had a fantastic time - they recommended lots of places to shop for the best food and clothing - and restaurants too (we tried the Mexican restaurant they recommended in St. Pete's and it was awesome). Gerald even brought the boys a big light to attach to the dock so they could fish at night. Fabienne and Gerald are wonderful, lovely, warm people - super interesting to speak with and genuinely wanting to be sure we enjoyed ourselves. Fabienne and Gerald - Thank you for your amazing hospitality and for allowing us to enjoy your beautiful property. We will be back!

Beautiful house with awesome view

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time. Gerold and Fabienne were great hosts. We were there for a 50th wedding celebration and had several generations there, everyone had a fabulous time . Gerold and Fabienne surprised my parents with flowers and balloons. what a great way to start out. It was quiet and allowed us time to relax. some of us didn't even leave. They said " why leave when we have everything here." We went fishing, swimming, kayaking. and golfing right there at the house, and the theater room and pool table were hits later in the evening. We saw dolphins right in front of the dock every morning. This was a perfect fit for our family. were planning a return visit within the year,. best kept secret of St. Pete. We LOVE THIS PLACE!!!!!

More than exceeded expectations!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just left Casa Dolphina and had the most amazing time! We booked our trip over 7 months ago and Fabienne and Gerold have been perfect hosts ever since...they were even kind enough to let us visit the house when we were in the area last August. We traveled with 11 family members ranging in ages from 3 to 70 and each of us had a remarkable time. We were greeted with homemade appetizers and sweets and spent the rest of our vacation relaxing and enjoying the amenities! Our kids woke up each morning and played a round of mini golf while the adults sipped our coffee in the open air dining room...a few of us worked out on the deck while looking at the dolphins and water and then hit the sauna for an early morning soak...we kayaked daily and went across to the little island where we climbed the tree houses...the pool was warm and clean and the hot tub was the perfect way to end each day. The house was clean and well stocked with towels, blankets etc...we even enjoyed sleeping with the balcony doors open a few nights in the master suite. Each room had a ceiling fan and there are two ac units so we were never hot...Fabienne and Gerold were only a text away and came out after 10:00 one evening to shock the pool when we mentioned it looked a bit cloudy so by the next morning we were back in it...the service was top notch! Our last evening we were brought chocolate truffles as a good bye gift...we couldn't believe how quickly 6 nights passed by and are already ready to book another week for next year...look no further! This is the perfect place for a relaxing get away! Our kids never said the dreaded words "I'm bored" and we all had plenty of space to enjoy our time away!

The Home for our dream vacation

  • 5 of 5

We are two families 5+5, and this place has everything we could hope from our holiday and even more! There was so much activities to enjoy but we also relaxed just by being at Casa Dolphina, because everything in the house was in order! We spent a lot of time outside: taking sun, swimming in the warm pool, sitting in the hot tub, and because we come from Finland, we go to sauna quite often and we can honestly say that the sauna in Casa Dolphina is really a good one! Also the views and sunsets were perfect! Watching water birds fishing and dolphins swimming was spectacular! We loved kayaking and fishing from the pier.

We can recommend this dream come true -place to everybody. This vacation we shall remember and happy memories will easily take us back to Casa Dolphina!

Thank you so much Fabienne and Gerold! You are so kind and looked after us perfectly.

Hope to see you again!

This home is amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a week at this incredible property. We are all family with 6 couples staying there. The pictures online are exactly what it looks like.... Beautiful! The outside grounds and glassed in room was perfect and the only place we hung out. The sunsets are amazing! We used the pool, hot tub, and sauna everyday. We kayaked and had many putting competitions. We cooked all our meals at home and found the kitchen adequately stocked. We originally wanted to be on the beach but those properties didn't have the outdoor space and luxury that this home offered. We couldn't have been happier to have chosen this property. Plus we went to the beach a few times and its only 4 miles away. The homeowners are the sweetest people and truly want to make your vacation special. Perfect vacation. Thank you, Fabienne & Gerold
