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 recommend...so 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!

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!
