This place was perfect for a guys fishing trip.
Jacob M. September 5, 2018
Our 2nd year renting for a friend/family event and we loved it, 26 total and you couldn’t tell, enough room in the screened in breeze way, the small pool is big enough and the massive kitchen dinning is awesome will be booking it again only down side is the drier was missing the nob for the timer, staff was great too

The home was lovely but we were somewhat disappointed. One side of the house did not have working air conditioner and the maintenance man came for a whole 5 minutes and said he was unable to fix, so that half of the family was hot and sticky from humidity the whole stay. For a home that holds a lot of people there was not enough trash bags, paper towels and no dish towels which we had to go purchase. This may sound like little things, but this is not a cheap place to stay at. So overall not very happy, and do not recommend this home and will not stay here again.

The set up was great. We had some hiccups with the blender and the doors, but maintenance was timely and helpful. The pool was a plus and the fire pit was put to good use making smores! The out door showers were strategically placed through out the property. The beds were comfortable and the double appliances in the kitchen was so helpful.

we had 24 adults/children and this place was fantastic. Lots of room, pool, we rented golf carts to go back and forth to the beach. Great places to eat and drink close bye.

Our family had a fabulous time at Dolphin Cove. We make it a point to take a big family vacation each year and it can be hard to find a home big enough to accommodate everyone! This house was perfect! It had more than enough bedrooms. And, unlike many rental homes, the sleeping spaces were all private. The rooms aren't full of multiple bunk beds. The house layouts are renter friendly. We loved that the kitchen had double of everything; it make cooking easy. It was also nice that we were all able to enjoy the same space while cooking. The mosquitos in Port A were vicious during our time there but a huge portion of the porch is screened in. It was wonderful that we were able to enjoy the outside and not have to swat at pests. We will be back to this wonderful home.

This place is amazing. This was our fourth time staying here. We had 16 adults and 8 kids going to the beach and the Dolphin Cove house fits us all with room to spare. We love coming back to the private pool after a long day at the beach. Even though it was 90 outside, we still manage to use the fire pit. The kitchen setup is great. You can't find another house in Port Aransas with two refrigerators, two dish washers, and two stoves in the same kitchen. I suggest to bring sponges and dish soap.

I have dealt with Louann, Shana, and Silver Sands for six years now. They know what I want and like. I would not deal with another management company in Port A.

We loved the Dolphin Cove!

We had a large family Thanksgiving gathering over that holiday weekend. This place had so much room for everyone. Everything worked and was clean and very nicely done.

Great layout too, with a huge kitchen and family room on one side and bedrooms all over the place. The screened in areas are so nice. We had ping pong and dart tournaments - so much fun.

The only thing you need to be aware of - and we were aware so it was not a negative - is that you need to walk a long distance, or bike, or golf cart or drive to the beach. It's close (as the crow flies) to the water, but no direct access to the beach unless you go outside the Village Walk subdivision. Again, not a big deal for us as we take our car down to the beach anyway, but good to know if you didn't know.

We were lucky because it was warm enough in the day to swim in the private pool and cool enough at night for a fire in the fire pit to sit around and talk.

Would recommend for large groups. We had 14 and could have easily had 10 more with no issue. This is a fantastic place!

We were in VW 68 for the months of Jan and Feb 2017. The house was lovely and so exceptionally well furnished and very clean. The only thing missing was clothes hangers and a deck it's lack of dressers and bedside tables. The pool was amazing and we enjoyed the evenings spent around the fireplace. Our every question was answered by Denise and her staff @ the office. The beach was so much fun and enjoyed by all our companies. We made a lot of memories and hope to return in 2018.

For the 4th year we have booked this house for our growing family and plan to continue to do so. We have 14 Adults and 10+ kids (all under the age of 8). It is the perfect setup to promote "togetherness" while also allowing space to separate from the group. Each family has their own bathroom and bedrooms. We have 1 family of 7, 2 families of 5 , 1 family of 4, 1 family of 3 and grandparents. The rooms are positioned so that our families with younger ones can retreat for naps/early bedtime and not be disturbed by those still up. The screened in porches make it possible for us to relax knowing our children aren't running into the street. The pool onsite provides much entertainment throughout the days. The one kitchen has 2 of everything making it the perfect place for cooking meals for all. We use the tables inside and picnic tables outside for eating. The upstairs porch is a great place for small groups to retreat to play games. Only a short drive to the beach, bay and marina-it's the perfect home base for a large group - and we haven't found a setup like it anywhere else.
2 washers and dryers make it great for keeping clothes/towels clean. There's also a ping pong table.

This year we had issues with cleanliness upon arrival in a couple of the rooms. and the pool pump had ceased to work the first day. The prop. mgmt group addressed it in a timely fashion. There is a grassy spot near pool where we setup an EZUp cover which provides shade for those wanting to be near the pool. (While we were there a week - The grassy spot never was mowed and did have a few stickers.) The picture of the exterior is outdated - as the plants have grown taller than the fences you see - allowing for more privacy and shade from neighbors. All in all-I'd recommend this to anyone wanting to go with a bunch of families or couples!

Great place for multi family and kids. Had all the needed kitchen items. The only thing that wasn't so great was the yard by the pool. It was not kept up and had tons of stickers. Bushes overgrown. We had to go and pull the stickers so that we wouldn't have the kids stepping on them. The flowers around the pool were pretty, but attracted Bee's. Not a good place to have bee's and kids. Possibly put the flowers out of reach of the pool. The bed types in the carriage house did not match up to the description listed on the site.
LaDonna M. September 25, 2015
we had a great time the lay out of this house was perfect for my family there was enough seating for all of us to enjoy meals together but separate areas for bedrooms where we could retreat from the noise and rest the only thing that would have helped us is a amp to the downstairs bedroom it is only two steps but very hard for my mom to navigate even those. the house was clean and had everything we needed lots of tvs. every thing worked great house
Chez R. April 24, 2018
This was a perfect place for all of our family to stay!! Could not have been better!! Plenty of room for everyone to spread out. The kitchen and living area are perfect for large groups. We had 24 and never felt like we were into of one another. The weather was unusually cold our weekend but the firpit was AMAZING!! Thank you for a wonderful weekend!!
Melonie T. July 12, 2015
I chose this home because of the size, the pool, and the kitchen. We had 9 kids and 10 grandkids (all under 8 yrs old). This home was perfect! Two of everything in the kitchen to accommodate our large crowd yet plenty of room for each to have their own space. We spent 5 days here and loved every minute.
John W. July 22, 2015
We had our 4 children with spouses, 10 grandchildren & 4 close family friends stay. It was perfect for all of us. A safe environment for the kids to play with minimal supervision. We had several issues/repairs with the house come up. All were taken care of quickly - very impressive. The only thing I saw not satisfactory (& we should have said something) was that ceiling fans & air vents were full of dust, as well as under the beds. Many in our family got sick with sinus infections & have asthma/allergies that got worse during the stay. The house was close to the beach & fishing. We all enjoyed seeing the dolphins.This was our first visit to Port Aransas & a very good one. We would highly recommend this home for any other large group. Service was excellent!

The house was awesome! Great layout and easily accommodated our large group!
Anonymous December 29, 2016
Our family met for a different kind of Christmas. This property was great for this. There was plenty of space for us to play games and lots of separate rooms for a little privacy. The kitchen was perfectly equipped for our own version of "Chopped". Overall, our experience was fabulous.
Karen B. June 15, 2015
We have been coming to Port A for 17 years. Our family has grown to four adult children with spouses and 15 grands. This house accomadates all with some privacy. We are still able to have meals together and hang out. The only improvements I could suggest
making sure there is access to both washers and dryers which we were only given when then dryer broke that we had access to. This size house needs two laundry areas. The management was good about accomadating us with more towels when we needed them due to
not being able to do wash. We will definitely being using this house again.
Michael G. October 20, 2015
Overall I would give it an excellent rating. The houses were clean and well kept. Our grill was quite dirty so we did not use it and only one dish washer was working. Everything else was as expected. Thank you.
Tariq B. July 6, 2016
So we pretty much get this house every year! This house is great for big families or a big group of friends. Everyone has their own space. The layout is awesome. One big kitchen with two stoves, two refrigerators, and two dishwashers. Two tables that will sit your entire party. The best part of this house is the pool and fire pit. Even though its hot outside the fire pit came in handy to make the little ones smores.
Karen B. June 15, 2016
The house is perfect for several families to be able have their own space but still able to spend time together. This was our second year to rent this house and would like to continue but the upstairs that you enter from screened in area had a relly musty odor. The house was clean but we had to wash a few of the comforters that were visibly dirty, I love the screened in area for the kids to be able to play in large dining area for dinners and games.

All 21 of us grown kids as well as grandchildren. We had a great time.The pool area need trimming,every day we had leaves and flowers to clean out. With 11 grandkids ages 20 to 8 they all had a super time in and out of the gulf and pool.
Sue A. July 2, 2016
All 21 of us had great time. We enjoyed the pool and the fire pit the most! We had a problem with the grill outside and the Internet. But overall it was wonderful!.
Luis M. May 11, 2016
The house was beautiful and very spacious. Everyone had their own room and bed to sleep in. We loved hanging out in the communal rooms. The kitchen was very big and had plenty of room. The only issue we had with the place was the coffee maker did not operate correctly with the filters there. Not sure if the coffee maker just didn't work or if they provided the wrong filters for it. Also, we did expect to have at least salt and pepper, was a little dismayed that we had to go and buy our own on that, but it wasn't a bid deal at all.

Amazing time, loved it, we all did, would definitely go again! :)
Frank G. July 12, 2016
The home is beautiful. It is well stocked with all that is needed. The layout was perfect for our group. Some suggestions would be as follows: the ping pong area is very hot, could of had a couple of fans. 2nd the scrubs needed cutting. We cleaned the bbq pit, it was so dirty. We cleaned out the pit in the middle of the court. Some of the items didn't work (washer N dryer in main house). Upstairs carriage house needs a new lock. Other than that we had a great time. Once all that has been done it's great. The wifi wasn't working, but they sent someone over the next day. The staff was very helpful. It's summer and we knew they were busy. Over all we would rent this property again. We also rented a golfcart, which they delivered. That was nice. Again the layout is perfect for 24 people. See you Dolphin Cove Next year!

Wonderful experience, we will be back! Great rooms, kitchen big and accommodating, lots of space, great for large family gatherings. Only feedback we have is the upstairs rooms on the kitchen side of the house had a moldy smell to it, suggest checking it for mold. And the AC controls where a bit confusing to work, mind leaving instructions for it? But all and all, very positive we loved the house will defiantly stay again!

For the past 3 years we have come together for a family reunion with 7 families. There are 14 kids ranging in ages of 5 months to 12 years old. Each of the families with 3 and 4 kids are comfortable with their own bathrooms and their own "suites" complete with a bedroom for the parents and a bedroom for the kids. The smaller families with 1-2 kids stay in the bedrooms with one large bed and bring a cot for their child so they can sleep in the same room. Each family is able to have their own space to retreat to - while we are still able to come together at meal time and in the common areas for togetherness as a big group. The kitchen is perfect for cooking for 24 with double stoves, ovens, microwaves sinks and refrigerators. The fact that there are picnic tables and SCREENED IN porches truly extend the living space for a large group making plenty of space for playing games and meals. The pool is a good size for a bunch of little ones including the 1 foot area at one end of the pool. The only bummer is that there is not direct beach access - but rather a very short drive in the car or golf cart to get there. The neighborhood itself is precious and what one would expect to see and be a part of as a classic "beach" community.

Our stay in Dophin Cove was a wonderful experience for our entire family, including children, grandchildren and other members. The place is very well equipped with all we needed in the huge kitchen. The game room was a big hit with the youngsters as was the fire pit. (We went at the end of December) All the beds were comfortable, although no all the remote controls were working. Only complaints were the insufficient amount of toilet tissue and the central heating. The single control thermastat for both levels was very ineffective. A system with with several zone controls would be best. In other words, a mini split system.

Everyone in our party had a great time, with space for everyone.
Anonymous January 12, 2014
The property was perfect for our family reunion. Plenty of space to be together or alone depending on our individual needs. We had a few problems figuring out the TVs and found that most of the remotes needed to have the batteries replaced. We found the condo clean but short on TP and paper towels. We had to buy more for our use. One wheel on one of the dishwashers was broken but it was still usable, just hard to move the rack. Otherwise the kitchen was great, as were the other spaces. We did have a little trouble adjusting the thermostats and several of the bedrooms were either too hot or too cold at night.
Overall, the space was great and we would use it again and recommend it.

We stayed at Dolphin Cove for my wedding weekend. All most all of my friends and family stayed in the house with us. It was such a fantastic weekend. The house is amazing. Tons of room, love having the private pool and fire pit! I highly recommend this house for large parties.
LEEANN B. July 15, 2014
The house is in a very convenient location, a block or two from the beach. In general, the house was clean and pool was nice. The set up for large groups was great. The only issues we had was a very dirty gas grill, the A/C was not cooling properly on the left side of the house and the majority of the tv's, remotes and outlets in the bedrooms and bathrooms didn't work. Management was great and very responsive to the a/c issues. The bushes in the patio area around the pool needs to be trimmed. Very overgrown, bad for bees and mosquitos. Overall even with these minor issues, we would stay here again.
Anonymous October 14, 2014
The place was perfect! We had a lot of couples and singles. The layout allowed everyone to have privacy while the common areas were large enough for everyone to use.

We had a group of 21 guys stay here for a offshore fishing trip. Plenty of room for everybody.

The house is perfect size for entertaining a large group or family. It just down the street from the beach and just a few miles from all of the restaurants.
Candace S. December 2, 2014
This house was the perfect combination of privacy (10 bedrooms and not a bad one in the house) and party (lots of fabulous and unique common space.) The actual home is very well built and it came furnished with all of the extras to make our beach trip a breeze. We will be back, Dolphin cove.
Vershall R. January 6, 2015
Our family had a wonderful week together in a very comfortable facility. We complained about the weather (cold and windy) and we're happy to stay inside. Some concern about lack of wi-fi availability- we coped.
Doris F. July 29, 2014
We rented this property for a multi-family get-together. Worked out great. Plenty of bedrooms and baths to accommodate everyone. Pool was a great plus for kids. Only issues we had were TV in smaller living room nonfunctioning, one of two dishwashers did not work, and game room consisted of a broken ping pong table and TV. But, overall, despite these small issues, we had an enjoyable time at this property.
Joe T. October 29, 2014
I rented this property for an Executive retreat. It was the perfect location and the perfect amount of space for each Executive. Great space for meetings as well as afternoon activities. Will visit again.
Anonymous April 30, 2015
Pool was very over grown, they say to bring towels and you should bring many as they only give one per person. The agency was very helpful and accommodating. The house was great for a large group with many families. Could have been better stocked with some of the little things that I usually find at other VRBO houses, as salt and pepper, laundry soap, and trash bags.
Sean P. March 31, 2015
We selected this house because it had ten bedrooms and could accommodate our staff easily. The property was in excellent condition, was in a great location, and exceeded our expectations. I'd highly recommend this property!
