"CASA DOLPHINA" Private Luxury Waterfront View of St.Pete Beach & Gulf of Mexico
average rating of 5.0 based on 101 reviews

Perfect location for relaxing family getaway

  • 5 of 5

6 adults/ 6 kids-We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Casa Dolphina. Kids and adults both took full advantage of all the amendities; sauna, hot tub, heated pool, kayaks, pool table and basketball. Views of the water and sunset were spectacular. Nothing beats watching dolphins and jumping fish in their natural environment, especially when they swim between the kids kayaks! Great location for day trips to hot spots such as Tampa, Clearwater, Anna Maria Island and of course St Pete Beach. Fabienne and Gerald are attentive hosts and proud of Casa Dolphina, as they should be!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

First of all I need to thank the hosts, Fabienne and Gerold, for welcoming us to their vacation home. As soon as we met face to face we felt an immediate connection and felt at home. The home met all of our needs perfectly for our family reunion with our 9 adults and 5 children under 4. There was plenty of bedrooms with king size beds and washrooms to serve our needs. We loved the eclectic style of this wasn’t the typical barebones rental. Each room was lovelier then the last with lots of things to look at for the children and adults alike. But there was one room in the home that we spent nearly every minute and that was the sunroom, with magnificent views of the pool, hot tub, inter coastal and perfect for dolphin watching. We didn’t eat one meal in the house!

What impressed us all was the thought that went into the supplies in the home, with plenty of dishes, utensils, cups, pots and pans to cook for larger groups and all the additional electric appliances, like a crockpot, egg boiler, etc. It really had everything one would have at home. The hosts were extremely responsive to any request we may have and checked in with us during our visit by text message to make sure we had everything we wanted.

I think my favourite thing about this home was the pool and hot tub for the cooler evenings. The children had so much fun on the putting green running back and forth. We were initially worried about how open the property is to the inter coastal, but there was so much for them to do they never seemed too interested in going too close.

Thank you Fabienne and Gerold, for making this our most memorable family gathering to date.We are already looking forward to another visit next year!

Fabulous Family Time

  • 5 of 5

Family time, always special but Casa Dolphina made it even more special. This beautiful house and location was the icing on the cake and our hosts Fabienne and Gerold were very attentive. We arrived to a fridge full of lunch and drinks. We were there as a celebration for my birthday and Fabienne and Gerold had birthday balloons, flowers and best wishes for me. There was 11 of us, 6 adults and 5 children and we always had something going on, between swimming, dolphin watching, kayaking, basketball, putting green or just enjoying the view we were never bored. On Valentines Day Fabienne and Gerold brought us an apple tart pie that Fabienne made for us it was very yummy. Thank you for many great memories, Casa Dolphina was amazing.

FIVE STAR FABULOUS location, property and owners!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Dolphina was a dream vacation and our family group of twelve found so much happiness enjoying the multitude of activities on this very lovely property! Our hearts were touched by the dolphins which came up to the dock daily to feed and play! Our boys fished from the dock for hours and we all loved kayaking to the island. After relaxing and refreshing swims in the heated pool, we retired to the hot tub and then the sauna. We spent lots of time in the enclosed porch talking, eating and playing games.The vacation of a lifetime for our family...such great memories and special time together. AND to top it off, when we arrived, Fabienne and Gerold welcomed us with a delicious tray of refreshments and a bon voyage gift when we departed. We highly worth the investment!

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!
