Beautiful Ponte Vedra Beach is all yours when you stay at Blue Dolphin, our oceanfront house right on the sands! Enjoy ocean views from two decks as well as a cool, shaded screened porch. Then go indoors to relax in comfort with the latest electronics!

Blue Dolphin couldn't have a better location. Here you're just behind the dunes, mere inches from the sands of one of the First Coast's most beautiful beaches. Quiet and unspoiled, with golden sands and gentle waves, our beach is perfect for families. Stroll along the surf at low tide and gather seashells and sharks' teeth; build sandcastles in the sun while sea birds dance along the edge of the water; boogie-board in the water and play bocce ball on the sand. Or just pull up a low beach chair, put your feet in the surf, and bliss out in the perfect balmy breezes of Florida!

The sun rises at your feet every morning at Blue Dolphin, so if you can manage to wake up early one day, you'll be enthralled by the Technicolor changes in the sky. Watch from the comfort of either of the open decks overlooking the beach, or recline in comfort on the screened porch and let the day unfold before you. You can even see the sunrise from the master bedroom!

Blue Dolphin is a family house, spacious and well appointed. If you're accustomed to hotel rooms, prepare for a treat -- everything you need is here, from a fully stocked kitchen to a laundry room to ultra-comfy beds and nap-worthy couches. Pack light, stop for groceries on the way to the house, and you're all set for the best vacation of your life.

The living area at Blue Dolphin is huge, with a wall-mounted 55-inch HDTV with Blu-ray and a DVD player above the fireplace. Sink into the couch or easy chair and enjoy a movie together while the kids spread out their Legos and Bionicles on the floor. For the game players in your group, the dining room table is ideal -- set beneath a soft light, it's great for everything from giant 2,000-piece puzzles to that ongoing game of Settlers of Catan! It also makes a great computer station -- you have free WiFi at Blue Dolphin.

Of course, it's possible to dine at the dining table too (!), but we find that we wind up taking most of our meals outdoors for that al fresco feeling! Wherever you dine, you'll love preparing your food in the kitchen at Blue Dolphin. Fully stocked with cookware and dishes, it will delight the chefs in your group. Even if you're just reheating pizza in the toaster oven or brewing that first, delicious cup of coffee in the Keurig, you'll love this space. There's plenty of counter room for working, and you're connected to the living and dining areas in here.

The living and dining areas of Blue Dolphin are open and connected, keeping the whole gang together even as everyone indulges in their favorite leisure activities. But when it comes time to sleep, privacy and quiet are what is needed, and that's just what you'll get at Blue Dolphin. Each of the 3 bedrooms is spacious, restful, and comfortable. The master has an en-suite bathroom, and a second full bathroom joins the second and third bedrooms. (A half-bath serves the living and dining areas.) So convenient!

The master suite is one of the jewels in Blue Dolphin's crown. You'll find that sleep comes easily in the ultra-soothing king-sized bed. But if you can manage to stay awake, enjoy a late show on the private TV, or do a little reading in the comfy chair beside the two long windows. Ah, the joys of free time!

The en-suite bath is lovely too, with enough space for both of you to get ready at the same time during the morning rush. All towels are provided, as are linens for every bed.

The second bedroom also offers a king-sized bed, perfect for grandparents or a second couple vacationing with you. And the third bedroom is great for kids or singles, with 2 twin beds and a 32-inch wall-mounted HDTV.

Come stay at Blue Dolphin next time you visit Ponte Vedra. You'll have the time of your life at the most beautiful place on earth!

Property Reviews 
Delightful Days
A guest from Wilson, WY recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in October, 2014
My three sisters and I had a fabulous week, "sister trip," here at the Blue Dolphin. It was ideally situated to alternate beach days with sight seeing in Savannah, the coastal islands of Ga., Jacksonville and St. Augustine. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you'd need to cook all week. However we went out most nights and found wonderful waterfront restaurants like Caps. Our only suggestion would be new, more comfortable living room furniture. Over all we all felt it was a good value, very functional, not deluxe.

House needs improvement.
Michael R. from Tucker, GA does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 7 days in September, 2014
Master Suite was fine. The bedroom with the king bed need to be reversed with the bedroom facing the beach. The king bed is not comfortable at all. I would switch to a Queen size bed. The windows in that room needs sound abatement. The traffic will keep anyone from going to sleep. Can't sleep late or nap on Sunday afternoon with the motorcycles. The whole place could use some window dressing.

Relaxation at the beach
A guest from St. Johns, FL recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in August, 2014
Our family spent a week at the Blue Dolphin in August of 2014. Overall the property suited our needs nicely, offering easy access to beach activities. I would however make the following suggestions for improvement. 1. We experienced insect problems in the house (ants & roaches). The issue is apparently on the radar as the odor of freshly sprayed insect spray was prevalent upon arrival. Maybe routine preventive treatments would be more effective. 2. Install a garbage disposal. In addition to offering a huge convenience, this will likely help with the insect problem too. 3. Replace the 1970's vintage microwave and dishwasher. Overall a good time was had by all.

Lovely family vacation spot right on the Atlantic Ocean.
Frances K. from Hayward, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in August, 2014
The Blue Dolphin with the screened in porch was perfect for our family. Even in August, we could sit outside during the day and enjoy the view. We had major problems with lighting. Stairs were not lit, dining room light didn't work and living room light was broken. We bought light bulbs and tried them but no luck. Finally called maintenance and someone came out to repair most of the problems. Elderly father had trouble with the stairs without lights.

Last Minute Change
A guest from Evansville, IN does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 7 days in July, 2014
we were placed in Blue Dolphin with about 12 hours notice after our scheduled rental the Windjammer Condos had an issue. Overall, I agree with the other reviews that it is an excellent location. Information provided in the rental indicates it's been owned by one family since 1985 - which leads me to believe it has long been paid for - so I am at a total loss as to why the owners haven't updated a single thing in the home since 1985. 2 new tvs and a Keurig are NOT updates. It's a great layout and it has so much potential and if the owners would do even minor decorative improvements it would be 1000% more enjoyable (yellow formica? really?) The house next door has been updated and they appear to fetch $500/wk more than Blue Dolphin in prime rental months so I'm not sure why the owners don't attempt to compete with the market. I did appreciate VRP's staff through this process, have rented from them before and I will again. I am putting 'will not recommend' only because there is no 'recommend with warnings' button to choose from.

Needs some updating...
A guest from Chesterbrook, PA recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in June, 2014
The property was in an excellent location, perfect for our little ones. I am a porch person so I definitely loved that! Appliances are very dated (I think the microwave was one of the first). Bathrooms and furniture need updating too. However, it was a great vacation.

Nice location,needs updating.....
Ralph S. from Putnam Valley, NY recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in April, 2014
Location is optimal so we had a great time. This house was big enough so we weren't falling over each other. Heat/AC worked well. Windows all stuck/jammed so they need maintenance, so do the electrical outlets. Beds were comfortable.You must be kidding me with the $150 non-refundable damage fee! We have never damaged anything in a house so to assume you will need $150 after our stay is absurd! Will look for another rental strategy if this stays in place.

Our Vacation With my Grandchildren
Annette M. from Colon, MI recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in April, 2014
We absolutely loved the location, the view, access of the ocean. The house does need to be updates in some areas. Some of the cupboards do not open and close. The wind catches the doors and makes them slam, either all doors have to remain closed at all times or some type of "quieting pads" need to be put on door frames. The screen kept coming out of the screened in porch screen door, my son fixed several times. The storage box that held the beach chairs and toys (Thank You, it was awesome to have those things available") is broken. The kitchen appliances are quite old. We were not able to use the dishwasher as it did not get the dishes clean. Like I said, some updating and repair maintenance is needed but we had a wonderful time and absolutely loved our vacation in Florida. Renting from Vacation Pro's was very easy and we had no problems in that area.

Great Spring Break Family Getaway on the Beach
Mary F. from Dubuque, IA recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in March, 2014
We could not have found a better place for stay with our 4 children ages 6 to 16 on our first family beach vacation. Location was perfect for longs days at the beach, with the convenience of being right there all the time. House was well equipped with all we needed to prepare and serves meals. Plenty of room to spread out. Views of the sunrise from the master br were awesome. Nice to have the screened in porch for a little protection from the elements on the days when the weather was rainy, but stilled wanted to be outside. Will definitely rent again. Thank you!!!

Needs attention, but can be very nice beach house.
Alina D. from Chipley, FL recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in December, 2013
House was neat but not truly clean. Terrible problem with ants. No lights in patio nor in the back for first 3 days. Hot water did not last more than 5 minutes. Was told by your company that someone would be coming in to look at it, and he never arrived. Given it was a rental for 6 people, this was quite annoying. The beach was beautiful. I was told I would be refunded the deposit, which has not happened.

Tree House
Dierdre J. from Brandon, Florida recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in August, 2012
The Tree House is in a fantastic location, we were only a five min drive to either the beach or downtown. Anastatia State Park backs right up to the neighborhood, and has a separate entrance from there. Only issue we had was that the house was NOT clean upon arrival, but VRPros sent a cleaning crew out immediately. The towels smelled like mildew (prob left in wash too long), but prop mgr came by with a complete change of towels for us! We had a fantastic time and will be sure to recommend this house.

A great place to stay
Karl G. from Bedford, VA recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in June, 2012
Overall my wife and I were happy. The upstairs was great. I liked the cathedral ceiling and the wood paneling. The kitchen was well equipped too. They even had spices in the cupboard. The location was great too. It's right on the edge of the park. They advertised a trail to the beach through the park. There was no such trail though. The bad: The basement was very musty. We avoided it the whole time. It was a shame...the bathroom down there was really nice. The housekeeper did a great job with general cleaning. But the house needed a good scrub down from the owners or they could pay the cleaning company extra to do this.. There were dark fingerprints all over the door mouldings and switches. There was balls of hair from pets under tables. But the main areas were very clean. It was the nooks and crannies that needed attention. We would stay here again. Maybe next time it will be more thoroughly detailed.
