      Fun in the Sun at a beautiful place!

      It was an easy, informative and professional experience renting the house.

        Great getaway at Dolphin Watch!

        The minute we walked into the house and saw the wall of windows looking out over the ocean - we were hooked. Cozy and comfortable. Well kept and a nicely stocked kitchen. We will definitely be back!

        5/5 Excellent

          Wonderful, cozy stay

          Dolphin Watch was a perfect place for our New Years getaway. The island was quiet which we expected and enjoyed. The weather could have been a bit better but no one can control that. The screened porch was wonderful for those rainy days and the pups loved their view of the beach. We had plenty of walks in the beach. We saw dolphins on more than one occasion which was neat. The house was clean and comfortable and everything was in working order. Greg was quick to respond with questions and made sure we had everything we needed. We will definitely come back again! Thanks Greg!!

            Wonderful, cozy home with an amazing oceanfront porch!

            We had the most relaxing Thanksgiving we’ve ever had at Dolphin Watch. This little house was perfect for our family of four plus our two dogs. There is plenty of storage and a well stocked kitchen. The screened porch was awesome! The bench swing and rocking chairs were well utilized and enjoyed! We hope to return in the future!

            5/5 Excellent


              Even though we had to leave early, thanks to Florence, the time we had there, 3 days, was absolutely wonderful. The home was clean and updated since we were there last, 8 years ago. Kitchen has everything you need if and when you make meals. Access to the beach, proximity to shops and restaurants are wonderful. The owner, Greg Craft, kept me informed about when the evac. would take place. He is a great person to deal with. We will be back again.
