Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Casa Dolphina is not a 5-star resort in itself, but the experience certainly is. The home is a house that has been remodeled into a vacation rental.

You really can't beat the view. Almost every night we had an incredible sunset. We spent hours on the dock fishing (not much luck), kayaking, and just enjoying the view. The kayaks were a huge hit with our family. It was rare that someone wasn't out on them (we had our children and grandchildren, and our group ranged in age from 8 months to 66 years old). We absolutely loved the electric lift to take the kayaks in and out of the water. We made many trips to the nearby island and enjoyed visits there with the locals. We even found some coconuts, clams and crabs. It was great that there's so many of them so several people could go out together. We even had a couple of night rides along the shore, checking out neighboring properties. So peaceful and serene.

We paid to have the pool heated, but Mother Nature had other ideas. Although we had mostly sunny days, temperatures were mainly in the 60's so it took over 3 days for the water to get warm enough to swim in. Fabienne generously returned our money--something she certainly didn't have to do, since you can't control the weather. We also enjoyed the sauna and hot tub, but again, not as much as the kayaks!

I was impressed with the amount of outdoor furniture. It really seems like they've thought of everything: loungers, stacking chairs, plastic chairs to sit on the dock.

Our favorite room was the sunroom, which became my teenager's temporary bedroom. He loved sleeping out there, listening to the waves and watching the sun set. (It was chilly in there, but we're northerners, so the young adults thought nothing of sunbathing when it was 53 degrees). It was our favorite place to have family dinners, with a large table and beautiful scenery.

The beds and bedrooms were very comfortable. The furniture is all high-end, albeit a little eccentric, which we loved. There are little "surprises" everywhere, like a monkey hidden in a tree.

A couple of tips: be careful when walking towards the dock. There's a step in the concrete that tripped us up a couple of times. If you like to fish, throw a couple of reels in your luggage. If you need anything, just ask. They are incredibly accommodating.

We had a wonderful time and made many great memories. Wish we were still there!

Beautiful house for a large family to vacation.

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great stay. Gerold and Fabienne are wonderful hosts. When we first arrived they gave us a house tour and showed us quite the spread Fabienne fixed for us. The kids went kayaking, played in the pool, and used the put putt golf area. The hosts even brought over champagne with glasses for the new year. Would highly recommend this house!

Fantastic Experience

  • 5 of 5

From the initial booking through checkout, we have never had such wonderful hospitality. Three parts of our family from ages 75 down to 8 stayed over Christmas this year. The owners from day 1 provided us with local recommendations and information. They decorated the house, and even put up a Christmas tree for Santa to find.

Upon arrival we were met with wonderful finger foods, and an all inclusive tour of the property. Then periodically they checked in to ensure everything was to our liking.

If/when we return to this area, there will be no hesitation in returning.

If anyone would like more information, please feel free to contact us at anytime.

Luxury stay with a resort experience!

  • 5 of 5

Our entire family stayed at this beautiful home. From the moment we walked in, we felt comfortable and at home. Fabienne and Gerold have attention to detail and went above and beyond what we expected. They provided us a fabulous tour and explanation of the home and amenities and had a delicious spread waiting for our arrival. This is a one of a kind home and property. We were amazed by how spacious the outdoor patio and pool are. The hot tub and sauna were also used daily. The fishing was amazing. The entire family did not intend to fish and it became a daily activity filled with fun and excitement. Everyone was excited to see what type of fish they would catch next. I believe there were over 14 species of fish caught and released. Dolphins went by every day. The kids took the kayaks fishing and to the private island. It is also very convenient to St. Pete Beach as well as shopping and spa services! This home is on our list to come back to!

Wonderful and Relaxing Property and Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

There is not much to want at this beautiful location and property. We arrived directly from Tampa airport to be greeted by Fabienne and a large assortment of lunch and dessert items. What a nice treat!

We chose to shut off the A/C and let the breezes flow into the large Florida room (where we spent a large amount of family time!) and into the bedrooms facing the ocean.

Highly recommend heating the pool. Having pool, hot tub, sauna, putting green and basketball hoop at our fingertips was so much fun. Our extended family of 10 had plenty of together time and plenty of space to separate as needed.

We also loved the lift that lowered us while seated in the 5 available kayaks into the water so we could explore the many homes on the water and the island so close by.

If you want a relaxing space with lots of activity options ....or the ability to just sit in the many comfortable pool chairs, this is your place.

A wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much Gerold and Fabienne for the use of your property. It really felt like we were at a resort but even better. We had the entire house to our advantage! Everything we needed was there for our group. The house and grounds were extremely clean and organized. Casa Dolphina is rightly named as we saw dolphins swim by daily. The location is beautiful. We paid to have the pool heated and it was just beautiful for our young children who swam in it all day. We seldom left the property but if we did, the children begged that we go back to the house so they could swim. The guys loved to hang out in the game room and us girls would lounge by the pool in the all season room which we practically lived in! If we had a question or concern Fabienne and Gerold were quick to respond. Thanks again for everything; we all hold wonderful memories of this beautiful place!
