Pam and guests
I'm delighted you and your family members enjoyed the cottage Pam especially enough to want to return! Thank you being for great guests, hope to welcome you again in future.
This is a beautiful home and perfect for our vacation
clearly a lot of thought has gone into making this a great holiday home.
The decor makes you feel very relaxed, it would be perfect for a short or long term rental, equipped with everything you could need, a real home from home.
We loved it and can't wait to return next year and would not hesitate to recommend this delightful cottage.
Much appreciated Jane, it was a pleasure to host you and your family. We hope to see you again soon! Best wishes Sophie
Excellent stay at the Dolphin Cottage
We enjoyed 4 weeks of fun in the sun in Dunedin.
Sophie's cottage is in a great location, walking distance from town.
She was an excellent host and addresses any concerns promptly.
She has a masterful job decorating the place, would recommend.
Thank you Matt for your kind review. I'm delighted you and your family enjoyed your vacation at Dolphin Cottage. Best Wishes.
A lovely cottage with special touches
My husband, two teen daughters, and I stayed at Dolphin Cottage for a week in April. Last year, at another rental, we had a bad experience, so were a little hesitant about trying again this year. Fortunately, we opened the door to the cottage and it was exactly how it looked in the pictures we saw online. The rooms are clean and nicely decorated. Books and brochures, beach towels and sunglasses had we forgotten our own, and linens were all available. There was even a jug of water, some soda, and a bottle of wine in the fridge. My husband was delighted to find some ground coffee and a French press to make coffee in the morning. Staying here felt like staying at a really thoughtful friend's house without the feeling of imposing on anyone. We hope to stay here again the next time we come down to visit my Florida family.
Your review is much appreciated Stephanie, I'm so pleased Dolphin Cottage delivered a positive experience for you and your family. Thank you for being such kind & considerate guests. Hope to see you again next time. Sophie 🐬
A Lovely Spring Vacation
My husband and I spent 8 nights in this lovely cottage in the heart of Dunedin, Florida on a quiet, tree-lined street. This sweet bungalow was open and airy, beautifully decorated and well furnished with a comfortable bed and furniture. Central air enabled us to maintain a comfortable temperature throughout the cottage. The kitchen had everything we needed for those rare occasions when we actually chose to eat in. We enjoyed the cottage's proximity to Pinellas Trail, which we biked each morning, to nearby restaurants and shops and to beautiful area parks and preserves. We also enjoyed taking in a baseball game with the Toronto Blue Jays at the Florida Auto Exchange Stadium. There is much to see and do in Dunedin and the outlying area, but this sweet cottage makes staying "home" pretty special, too.
Thanks for painting such an inviting picture Joan. We're so glad you felt the cottage was home away from home - that's true success for us. Thanks for choosing us and hope to see you again.
Right out of Coastal Living...
We loved this house. Super cute. Very well decorated. Very clean. Sophie has thought of all the details to make your stay comfortable. A really nice location. You're within walking distance of the town and the marina, with really nice restaurants and unique shops. Only about a 10 minute drive to the beautiful Honeymoon State Park. We would definitely stay here again.
Your title could not be a better compliment Joanne! Hope to welcome you again. Thank you Sophie
