4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, Sleeps 10

Dolphins are whimsical and playful, and that's just how you’ll feel in this new beach cottage. Ideal for two families this warm and contemporary designer-furnished home has space divided equally among all the bedrooms, a kid’s room with two sets of bunk beds, and a large, open living/kitchen/dining area with eat-up bar. You’ll have as much fun as Flipper in your private, seasonally heated pool, complimented by a large furnished patio, outdoor shower, and convenient bath just inside the back door.

During Spring and Summer this home requires a 7-night, Saturday to Saturday stay. Any other time we require a 4-night minimum stay.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Our family recently stayed at the Dolphins Cottage, 3/28-4/4-15 during our first visit to Destin. We had a fantastic visit and the Dolphins Cottage worked out perfectly for the 4 of us. Plenty of room for all of us. We loved the simple layout and being one floor. Our boys loved the bunk beds and the queen mattresses were very comfortable. The house was very clean and not cluttered with stuff. The heated pool was the highlight of the house. One day the heater was not working and someone was out to fix it promptly. Easy check-in and check-out procedures. The beach was an easy short walk from the house. The house was conveniently located to everyday stores as well as tourist attractions. A great stay and will look into Newman-Dailey Resort Properties again for our future Destin visits! Thank you!

2 families with small children

  • 3 of 5

Pros: The location was good. The space was just right for 2 families and 4 small children. It is walking distance to the beach.

Cons: the air conditioning is awful. The place never cooled down below 79 degrees. It's obvious the unit needs to be replaced and has been "rigged" several times. There are roaches everywhere and one even came home with us in my car from one of our peices of luggage. There are also piles of fireants in the backyard around the pool. The refrigerator, dishwasher, and washing machine do not work correctly and all should be replaced.

The house is cute and the pool is just the right sized for kids just learning how to swim.

Bottom line is the owners need to spend the money to get this place working for families to stay here comfortably. No one wants to be up all night in sweat from the house not cooling down. It took 3 days for Popsicles to freeze, the washer is covered in black mold under the deal, and the dishwasher smells terrible.

This home was perfect for our visit. We had 2 families and the set up was perfect. Loved the back yard with the heated pool and the short walk to the beach.
