Wonderful Stay

By: Trip Date: 03/14/2020
This was the perfect house for our two families. We were nervous about being so far from activities as some had warned us, but the pool, hottub, kayaks and extra space made it worth it. It was not a problem to drive to the things we wanted to do and we loved coming back in the afternoon and enjoying the evening at the house. We cooked every night and the house had everything we needed. There was more than enough space for all 9 of us. We had 4 adults and 5 teens. Only thing I wish could have been different is the ability to turn the AC down more. It was mid 80s when were there and the nights did not get very cool. It was hot when we slept. But honestly- that was worth the many positives this house had to offer. Would definitely stay again.

Wonderful family vacation

By: Trip Date: 02/21/2020
We had a wonderful relaxing family vacation at Dolphin Cove. We watched the dolphins come by every day and fished off the dock with the supplied fishing rods (actually caught fish.. bonus!!) Adult and kids alike enjoyed the pool and closed in sitting area. The bikes and kayaks were a great added amenity. We had no need to use the beach area which is only a 5 minute drive away because our house and pool was so great. We did not utilize the man cave as much as we could have, only played a few games of pool but that is also a great touch. Thank you for having us.. we will be back!!!

Fantastic Vacation Rental

By: Trip Date: 11/17/2018
Fantastic home for our Thanksgiving getaway. We were 3 generations, and all of us loved it. Beautiful spot right on the water. The pool and hot tub were great. We had fun kayaking and biking. Loved the 'man cave' with pool table. Nearby beaches are beautiful and we enjoyed eating at the local Greek restaurants. House was immaculate and well stocked with kitchenware for our Thanksgiving feast. Sunsets from the pool are spectacular. We all hope to come again soon!

7/28/17 The best part of the house was the pool, had lots of fun in the backyard. We definitely suggest Caladesi Island and Clearwater Beach. Crabbies is also a great restaurant.

Beautiful House Tucked Away

By: Trip Date: 07/23/2017
This is a beautiful house tucked away in the back of a nice neighborhood. There is plenty of space inside and outside the home. The pool is huge and has a deep end which was very nice, plus the grotto was a really nice touch. Thanks for the hospitality and accommodations Brian! Our family loved the home!

This was perfect for our 3 generations.

By: Trip Date: 07/03/2017
7/3/17-7/6/17 Dimitris on the Water - Superior service, exceptionally family friendly, very generous portions of outstanding food. Rusty Bellies - Very similar experience as Dimitris. Top Notch!

Thanks for everything.

This is a beautiful, well appointed, clean and comfortable home.

By: Trip Date: 01/31/2017
This is a beautiful, well appointed, clean and comfortable home. We were gathered as a family with babies to grandparents and found it roomy and open with places to play and places for quiet conversation. The pool and spa are lovely, the kitchen is very well equipped and there are plenty of things to use for entertainment from bicycles to kayaks to beach chairs and sand toys. The location is close to shops and restaurants and minutes from Howard Park and its white sandy beaches. Brian was very helpful and quick to answer any question we had. All in all, delightful and we would use this home again!

Kayaked with manatees!
