Air conditioners are not easily to operate. One leaked all night our first night of stay and kept us up all night! Internet and Roku needs attention as its slow and easily overloaded. House lighting fixtures on first floor are bright daylight and not warm color, with no shades… not ideal and felt cheap to us. Neighbor left bistro lights on their balcony which meant bright shining light into our bedroom window the entire trip. Golf cart had no park brake mechanism so had to park on flat surfaces and the plug outlet is coming off. House also strangely has no easy outside access to the outdoor shower/ hose which would have been useful after beach. So the price was right but this house is clearly a low budget version of the houses in this development. If these little things are important look elsewhere around Dune Allen. We love this development for easy access to the public beach access…. We won’t stay at this house again though!

Best vacation house!
5/5 stars
Great vacation location! The area is lively but also relaxed. The rental house was beautiful! Everything was clean upon arrival and held our large family very comfortably! I would recommend this spot to anyone. We will be back!

A wonderful gem close to the beach!
5/5 stars
We stayed at Dolphins and Dunes for a little winter break and had a fantastic time! The home was clean and even more spacious than I expected! Perfect for a family or a small group of friends. The neighborhood was peaceful, and the house felt like a home away from home! It's a short 5-10 minute walk to the beach, or you could use the provided golf cart if you have several things you want to take with you. The house itself is decorated so nicely and feels current, but cozy. There are so many fun features - a balcony you where you could relax with a drink and watch the sun go down, a small reading nook upstairs, a nice front porch, a full, spotless kitchen with all the appliances and cooking implements you'd ever need. We will definitely be back and are looking forward to it!

In need of attention
2/5 stars
The home itself was decent, and the location was great, but the furnishings are in need of serious attention. Furniture is mismatched and some is even broken. Furniture in living room is terribly uncomfortable and dirty. Rugs in common areas are cheap and dirty. Carpet in bedrooms is very dirty. Headboards in bedrooms aren’t attached to beds and just flop around between bed and wall. Rodent poop fell out of air conditioning unit in upstairs master. The layout of the home is great, and all in all it really could be a very comfortable home with a little attention and new furnishings. Unfortunately, we will not stay here again.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review! While it is always our gaol that our guests have a stress free and “issue-free” stay, we are always looking to improve in any area we can for our guests and truly value any feedback. With that being said, there is feedback that is fair and constructive and there is feedback that just is inaccurate. Unfortunately, this review is one that falls into the “inaccurate” category in many regards. This home (and all other iTrip homes) is routinely treated for any pests (pests of all sizes including bugs and up to rodents) as a preventative measure and we have zero evidence of “rodents” in or around this house. I am unsure what you saw and I am truly sorry it caused distress, but it wasn’t from rodents in this home. Additionally, the rugs and carpet are regularly, and had recently been deep cleaned. These carpeted rooms are being replaced with hardwood soon. I’ve shared your opinion of the furniture to our team to look into. I wish you had reached out to us during your stay and allowed us to handle any discomforts for you. We would have gladly sent someone over right away to address all of your concerns had we known there were any. Again, we value our guests and their experience more than anything and I’m sorry yours was less than 5 star.

Wonderful Family Vacation!
5/5 stars
Dolphins and Dunes is a lovely house in Santa Rosa Beach, FL. My family spent a wonderful vacation there recently. The house has beach decor in soft shades of blue with art work throughout. Full service kitchen with everything you need to cook in. If eating out is your thing there are many excellent local restaurants nearby. Three and a half bathrooms, two master bedrooms, a bunk room and sleeper sofa provide room for families. A beach buggy is available for driving you and your beach paraphernalia to beach just down the road. There is a community pool to enjoy. The area is beautiful!

Wonderful weekend get away
5/5 stars
This house is so cozy that it feels like home. My best friend and I wanted a beach spot for a quick weekend with our college kids and this was perfect. All the comforts of home with plenty of room. Each bedroom has a private bathroom which is awesome when traveling with multiple families. Plus an owners suite on the ground level, that is perfect if you have older family members traveling with you. Great beach access with the golf cart. Clean, spacious, and lovely. We will definately go back to Dolphins and Dunes.

Upon our arrival we noticed a maintenance employee was outside the home working on what appeared to be a drain hose. When we entered the home we were immediately hit with a horrible mildew smell. The closer we moved to the upstairs carpeted area we knew it was the source of the smell. Sadly the majority of our party was dependent upon the 2 bedrooms & 2 baths upstairs during our stay. The upstairs air units were leaking on the carpet & had obviously been an issue for a long time in the past. Our allergy sufferers were symptomatic within the hour. I contacted itrip & was told they had no other properties to move us to. The air units blew out an equally horrible smell & the water continued to accumulate. A maintenance worker arrived the following day & agreed with the horrible smell & confirmed the ongoing problem with the drainage issue. In addition the gas cook top malfunctioned leaving us having to eat out when we had food laid out to cook. Maintenance came & fixed the following day only for the problem to occur again. We finally discovered the breaker threw with each use. On top of these things, this home is horribly dirty. To pay $5K for a week & then experience a 2 star stay is so disheartening. I am hopeful that itrip will look into this issue & demand better for their properties before renting to someone else.

It is always our top priority that our guests experience a stress free and enjoyable vacation while staying with us. Occasionally, there are hiccups, but we always do our best to fix any issues a guest may encounter. The same is true of your trip. I am sorry on behalf of iTrip that you had any issues at all! I can also acknowledge that we fixed every issue that was reported to us in a timely manner. We sent in professional cleaners to clean the carpet and remedy the smell. We had the AC unit professionally serviced and fixed, and once it was identified that the breaker was the issue with the stove, we fixed that as well. All of these issues became apparent during your stay. If we were aware before-hand, they all would have been handled prior to your arrival. While one of our maintenance team members mentioned this is an "on-going" issue, it is NOT an ongoing issue in this home. This type of AC unit is notorious for leaking based on it being gravity fed and does not have a motorized pump. Because of this, from time to time they tend to get clogged which then causes the very slow drip. So, this issue is not an ongoing issue specific to this home. I am sorry you felt you were told there was an issue we knew about and didn't fix, that isn't the case. As for feeling the home was "horribly dirty", as with all the other details we came and fixed for you promptly, had we been notified you were unsatisfied with the level of cleanliness, we would have gladly sent someone over to remedy that for you! As I mentioned before, I'm sorry your stay had a few issues and hope they didn't overshadow a great week in a beautiful home and location! We appreciate your feedback as we are always looking to improve and do our best for our guests!

Private and Relaxing
5/5 stars
My husband and I booked for a week stay. The home was very nice, clean and relaxing. The Master bed was very comfortable. The Master shower was so relaxing with the waterfall shower. We ate dinner at Stinky's fish camp twice! Fantastic food and service. We also dined at Down Island a new restaurant off of 98, Again, Fantastic food and service. Both places are worth the visit. We were very pleased with the service we received from Kat and Gina during the booking process. We will stay again.

Dolphins and Dunes Santa Rosa Beach 30A
5/5 stars
Dolphins and Dunes is a comfortable and well furnished cottage. This was a great place for us to stay with my family on our Fall break. The home is so warm and well-appointed - really could not think of anything more that they could have provided, the beds were plentiful and comfortable. And the management company provided great communication. They were very helpful when needed. The Cottage is in a great location! Easy access to the beach, restaurants, & shopping, I loved sitting on the upstairs balcony with my cup of coffee and a book. The public beach access had a ramp that was perfect for our wagon and clean restrooms for the children. We loved having access to the Golf cart. It was perfect to take our crew to the beach and to Stinky's Fish Camp. We enjoyed the outdoor shower and the neighborhood pool. I am looking forward to our next visit to Dolphins and Dunes.

Loved our stay at Dolphin & Dunes
5/5 stars
We had a great stay for 2 weeks at Dolphin & Dunes and highly recommend this property if you are looking at locations on the west end of 30A and Santa Rosa Beach. The house is spacious and well appointed and had all the things we needed to be comfortable and feel at home. With very young kids in tow we ate in most nights but it was easy to pick up food at a close by seafood shop and cook in the kitchen. The golf cart makes getting around super easy and we used it for trips to the beach and ice cream shops. Having the pool just out the back was very convenient and we took our boys there almost every day. Highly recommend Dolphin and Dunes.

Where Luxury Meets Cozy
5/5 stars
We had a wonderful week staying at Dolphins & Dunes! Perfect for a work-cation with solid wifi and lots of space to spread out and get some office hours in while also enjoying the beach. The house is just perfect, with luxurious touches that felt like a treat. The master bath's waterfall shower was amazing! And the professional open kitchen (and grill outside) had everything we needed to make great meals at home - top-of-the-line appliances and plenty of cookware/utensils. On top of that, everything also felt so warm and welcoming. The decor is tasteful, the furniture is cozy, and the beds/linens are soft and inviting. Everything we needed to feel relaxed and restful. When we felt like going out around town, the location provided us with plenty of options for great restaurants (some within walking/biking distance), as well as nearby access to walking trails and of course the beach! Dolphins & Dunes is also close to two state parks which were delightful to explore. The neighborhood is nice and quiet, and in close driving distance to grocery stores and gas stations too. We can't wait to book another week here soon!
