Great house and not far from beach. Mosquitos were awful and could somewhat be prevented if flower bed wasn’t below deck. Overall great experience.
Great experience on the island- fantastic to hear! Appreciate you choosing Blue Dolphin for your vacation time and being such kind guests. And darn those mosquitos, they never seem to get that 'stay away' memo. Will pass long your feedback on the flower bed. Thanks!
We really enjoyed the house! It was everything we expected. We had 8 adults and 3 children. Plenty of room and easy access to the beach. There is NO DOUBT our crew would stay here again!!!! Marlon
Fantastic news! Happy your beach getaway was a success! Definitely come back for some more island time!
The house was very comfortable and so close to a completely uncrowded beach! It's quirky and we never gave up trying to figure out where the original house was vs various add ons, but plenty of space and spaces for everyone (we had 5 adults and 5 kids). Kitchen well equipped, great dining/gathering area & table. Quiet friendly neighborhood. Only drawback is that nearest real grocery (other than convenience type stores) is at least 30 minutes away in Lake Jackson, or Galveston, so plan accordingly and you'll be fine! Plan to eat out at Seahorse Bar & Grill near end of bridge at Surfside, excellent food and nice deck with water view.
Happy your group of 10 found our island accommodations comfortable and the beach uncrowded - plenty of room to roam! Thanks for being great guests, please come back for some more beach fun!~
Great home away from home. Not many steps to get to the main door. Clean and comfortable. Close enough to the beach that we could get a little walk in and get in the water. Quiet neighborhood and didn't worry about traffic. Major chain grocery stores about 30 mins away. And if your grill'n, you'll need charcoal and lighter for the grill that's at the home. Bait shop across the road has ice, milk, eggs...
Glad you found our home comfortable and clean for a great temp home away from home! Our little slice of the beach and coast is certainly less busy and pristine, thanks for noting and providing suggestions for the next guests. We'd love to host you and your group again - thank you.
There were eight of us total and the house was great. Three dads and five kids. Space was great and allowed for moving around as needed with five kids. We loved that it was out of the way of all the touristy stuff but not too far away if we wanted to go. Beach was right there and not too busy. Will definitely stay again
Sounds like your group of 8 had the perfect beach getaway! We'd love to have you back again. You were excellent guests!
The property was great. There was a lot of space to put everyone in different bedrooms. The decks were great just to sit outside and enjoy the views. Sand beaches only a short distance away. Comfortable seating areas in multiple locations which allowed everyone to group together. Was a lot of fun.
Glad you enjoyed the opportunity to be comfortable and spread out throughout Blue Dolphin inside and out! We're biased, but we do agree it's got a lot of cool spots to hang. We'd be delighted to have you and your group back again for some more beach time!
We had different age groups in our family and everyone was able to find their own space inside, but because of the house’s layout, everyone could still be connected.
Glad our home worked out well for your family, and hanks for choosing our home for your Spring Break getaway! You were great guests to host!
Our six kids enjoyed the bunk room with their own bathroom, multi level kitchen overlooking one living area was fun; one-block walk to sandy beach; two beds could use a separate AC unit; one daughter had to buy a box fan. $2 bridge toll back and forth to Galveston. Would return. VRBO did not automatically send me the access codes 2 days in advance like assured. Took me several calls to get the info one day before. The VRBO Experience Manager and owner were on top of a couple of issues.
We enjoyed our stay and the house was perfect for the two families that we there. The location to the beach access is a little misleading in the pictures however it is not a far walk/car ride to the beach access. Dishes were a little disarrayed in the cabinets and drawers, however there was everything needed to cook while we were there. We will be coming back to area again next year as we enjoyed our time very much.
If you want a beautiful place to stay. Stay Here!!!
The Thompson's have a beautiful home away from home. They were very accommodating to our needs. The home was very clean, well stocked with everything we needed which made our luggage much smaller, e.g. towels, bedding, beach towels, the kitchen was loaded with pots, pans, utensils, etc. My children and grandchildren loved it. There were even toys for my grandchildren to play with and many things for the adults to do even if we hadn't gone to the beach....:) but who would not go to the beach? Everything was supplied for that as well. You will not be disappointed in the stay here. As a matter of fact, my grown children wanted to stay and offer to keep the house up for Mr. & Mrs. Thompson. Thank you again Mrs. Nanci for your hospitality and making our vacation stay a very memorable one. Next vacation will probably be spent staying in your lovely home should we decide to come back to Galveston. (San Luis Pass) Thank you again for your hospitality.
Thank you Lanay for your review and your happiness with our house. Fabulous is know that all the different age ranges found delight and fun at the house, this is what a vacation should be.
Great house and location
My 3 teenage boys and I had a wonderful long weekend at the Blue Dolphin. The house was awesome and Nancy went above and beyond to make our stay extra special. She really thinks of everything. The house was equipped with everything; spices/condiments for cooking, beach towels, nice soaps/shampoos, toys for the kids. She even provivded popcorn along with a the huge DVD collection. We enjoyed relaxing with a movie each evening after spending the day on the beach and/or fishing. The boys love to fish and they caught red fish, flounder and blue crabs. Can't wait to go back! This place is amazing.
Candace we are excited to here that you and the boys had a superb vacation and enjoyed all the little extra's we have added to the house. It was a pleasure to share our home with you and your awesome family.
