April 2016 vacation

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property for a family vacation in April 2016. Two adults and two teenagers stayed in the house and had plenty of room. The pool was a great addition and made the week very enjoyable!

A few very minor issues were encountered during the week. The property owners responded in a very timely fashion taking care of everything!

The house is but a 5 minute walk to the beach as well as several quality restaurants and stores.

Looking forward to a return visit!!

Pleasant Stay on the River

  • 5 of 5

My family had a great stay at Casa Dolfino. The house was as expected, an older Florida river home, and we were very pleased with the location. It was exceptionally clean, and the owners are very responsive. They answered any and all questions very promptly and were very helpful. It was lovely to have a refreshing pool to jump into after a day at the beach or on the river. The fenced yard was perfect for our dog, and she enjoyed exploring every corner. The kids loved fishing from the dock, and we were able to walk to a boat rental business, rent a boat for the day, and bring it back to "our" dock for loading and unloading. That was a wonderful convenience! The yard also has easy access to the water for kayaks. Daytona Beach Shores has some great casual restaurants, and our favorites were all within five or ten minutes (driving) of the house. Sunsets were lovely, and there was always a great breeze when we were there. We wouldn't hesitate to return to this rental.

Comfortable Family Vacation Home On the Water with Pool!

  • 4 of 5

We have enjoyed our time at this VRBO for the second year in a row - both times with our entire family for a lovely vacation. Like other reviewers have said, this is not a luxury getaway, but a nice, clean, comfortable home for a great family time. The pool and dock are winners, as is the spacious family room. As a fairly large family we enjoy the various media offerings as well.

Our first year we noticed there were a few things that needed 'fixing', and the kind owners were quick to respond to our needs. This year we were pleased to see that the owners had looked after everything, making sure the jetted tub now worked and part of the decking was replaced. There was even some new bedding and, I think, beds, which was greatly appreciated.

Perhaps an electric kettle would be a great addition to the kitchen inventory. During our stay, the electricity and internet cut out, not due to anyone's fault - just weather and city timing. It took some doing to have it reinstated, but it was restored. Although I am sure this hardly ever happens, perhaps a booklet with instructions as to what to do/who to contact would be a good thing to include with the house inventory.

These owners are very nice, kind people and we have greatly enjoyed their guest accommodations! Don't hesitate to book this property!

Loved our visit

  • 4 of 5

We spent a week at this cottage and loved every minute of it. The fishing was great and we had fresh fish filets several nights. The neighborhood is quiet and it was very relaxing. My small dog loved having a fenced yard. We rented a pontoon boat from Water Toy Shop Boat Rentals and spent a wonderful afternoon on the river. We found the home to be clean and comfortable, the pool was very nice, and the location is close to all sorts of activities. We loved the water view and saw a few dolphins (as the name implies). There is a jet ski rental place just down the street for those who enjoy a faster time on the water! For a fun time in a nice cottage, we would definitely recommend Casa Dolfino.
