We had an excellent time, all services were done as quickly as possible due to storms and we understood any issues. We will be back in January for a month at Indian beach there with your company.

Between rescheduling due to Covid and dealing with Tropical Storm Sally we were pleased with how quickly we heard back from you and your updates on weather. We Would have appreciated a discount for loss of cable and internet for several days while stuck indoors however. Great house!

Super cute little house. Very neat and clean.

I stayed here for a week in September and did liked the place. Nice updates, very clean and neat. It was a nice place to stay but I was a bit disappointed with the houses next to us obstructing our view of the beach. The pool was a bonus, especially when the flies were eating us alive on the beach. However, the pool skimmer wasn’t working properly so we had to constantly skim the bugs out of the pool. Not a big deal. The beach was beautiful and very private. Every day was warm and sunny with a nice breeze. The beach was a short walk as long as the neighbors don’t mind if you cut thru their property. Luckily, The houses next to us were empty so it didn’t matter. Otherwise, we would’ve had to drive down the road to the main beach access. We ended up renting a golf cart to take chairs, umbrella, cooler, towels, etc. The bedrooms are adorable, with only one downfall, only one bedroom had a dresser for clothes, the other two had closets with a few misc hangers which were thankfully left by other guests. Wasn’t so happy living out of a suitcase. Over all, it was a nice time, I don’t think I’ll go back to this house again but I will definitely be going back to Cape San Blas thru natural retreats. They were great to work with and were only a call or text away for anything we needed.

Best of both worlds!

Blue Dolphin was a great rental that offered beach access and a private pool.

Loved everything!

We stayed at The Blue Dolphin in August and had a great time! It was close to the beach and the kids loved the pool. We loved everything about it. It was clean and cared for. We also loved the beach gear that was included and the free ticket to activities. Overall, it was the best vacation we have taken in awhile. Check in was a breeze and communication with the manager when we lost water (it was an area wide outage) was great!

We will be back!

After hurricane Micheal there was a little issue with our vacation rental not being ready in time. I was sad to hear the news but Natural Retreats took care of us and switched us over to the Blue Dolphin at the last minute and it was a dream come true. The house has been beautifully remodeled after the hurricane and the views were amazing. We were much closer to the beach than we had thought and it was lovely. I can't say enough nice things about the house, location, and the owners. We had the pleasure of meeting the owners, they were a true highlight of our trip, sweet and hard working couple. We have fallen love the with Cape over the years and we have had the pleasure of staying and quite a few lovely homes but the Blue Dolphin takes the cake. We will definitely be back with the kids and the dog and hope to run into our new friends while we are there! Blessings to you all and thank you for opening up your home to us.

Perfect for us

We really enjoyed our stay; perfect size for us and our dogs. Very close to the beach with a private pool to enjoy as well. Outfitted well in the house; only downside was common room didn't have DVD player to watch our own movies that we brought.

Easy walk to the beach and pool a plus

The location for a house not directly on the gulf was great. There were unobstructed views of the ocean from the deck, and it was a short walk to the beach. The pool was also great to use when we weren't at the beach and our daughter wanted to swim. The house could definitely use some TLC, though. The ice maker in the freezer was broken and there was a big rip in the carpet, among a few other things. None of these really impacted our stay, though. Overall, a great trip to San Blas as always.

Pool , view, location are great

Great family vacation home... pool on premises is the outstanding feature ... too hot for beach with 3 grandchildren saved my sanity having it right there.

Loved the view!

We had a great time at Blue Dolphin. The shaded front porch with the beach view was wonderful to sit on every morning with my coffee. The only problem we had was that there was no broom! The sand became horrible by the end of the week. I would love to see this house get finished painting inside as only half of it is “updated” and for there to be even just slightly updated oven and dishwasher. They might be from the 70’s!

Pros and Cons...

Great location with easy beach access. House all on one level is very nice, but a few suggestions: An umbrella for shade out near the pool would be nice. Also, the appliances desperately need to be updated. It is very difficult to cook on the stove or bake in the oven due to the age of the appliances and the heat is very difficult to regulate. I also noticed the dishwasher didn't seem to clean very well due to the age. The bed is VERY uncomfortable as are the couch and recliner. The house definitely has some pros and cons and some easy to fix issues.

Comfortable enough but needs updates and some TLC

Home is comfortable but it needs some regular maintenance and attention to appearance. Furnishings look to be "early Goodwill" . Cable (WiFi) not the best and home location was a dead zone for our cell phone service (apparently the Cape is known for spotty cell service).

Great little beach cottage!

Our family rents houses on San Blas every year. This year, my fiance and I decided to stay at the Blue Dolphin and I'm glad we did! The living room/kitchen is a big open space, perfect for entertaining. There is a sliding door to a screened in porch that was perfect for morning coffee or a night cap (they could use more lighting out there, but this might be for turtles). Kitchen is well appointed with plates, glasses, silverware and cookware. There is a grill outside for cooking too! The pool was a great addition! We could not figure out the TV in the living room, but had our Apple TV which was sufficient for us. Washer/dryer and dishwasher were both great to have. There is a key pad with a code for entering, very nice to NOT have to worry about keys on the beach! One negative- there are ants everywhere. We had a number of them come in- the culprit? A tiny crumb on the floor. If you have children, it might not be as easy to keep the place clean and rid of ants but once we identified the problem we had no further issues. Perhaps something the management company can address. There are also a lot by the pool area. Overall this was a great property and we will return (perhaps will make sure they spray before we come to avoid the ant issue we faced this time!).

Nice Partial view and Location - Needs Updates

The location to the beach and partial beach view was great. Appliances in kitchen very old - 70's. Carpet in hallway and master was nasty. Needs replaced with tile or flooring. Decks in need of repair and doors were broken.

Great views, close to the beach, best vacation.

Stayed at the Blue Dolphin with my Daughter, Son-in law and 2 Grandchildren. Had a wonderful time. The beach was great, the kids had fun in the pool that was just the right size for them. And we enjoyed the view of the ocean from our screened in deck. Loved the Blue Dolphin. Will be back.
