Amazing Vacation Home

by Brian L.

5 of 5

What an amazing vacation home for a family of 6. The neighborhood is quiet and pretty with a fantastic community pool. A short 5 min walk to the beach access is always a plus!!! My family and I loved the comfort of the house. The master bed mattress was extremely comfortable and the kitchen is well stocked with all the necessities. We really appreciated the stocked keurig pods!!! Looking forward to next years stay

Great Vacation!


5 of 5

Dolphin Dance is a lovely home and a great size for a family of four. Located in the very private Grove subdivision it's short a 5 minute walk to the beach and just a mile from the hustle and bustle of Seaside. The owners have thought of everything you may need- FYI bikes are no longer included. We will be back!

Response from Benchmark Management

Gina, thank you so much for taking the time to review your stay at Dolphin Dance! It is truly a one of a kind home. Located in the quiet neighborhood, Grove by the Sea, this lovely home has everything you could possibly desire! You are just a short bike ride to the famous Seaside and while bikes are not included with the home, we do offer a credit with Vacayzen. With this daily credit, you can rent bikes, beach chairs and much more! We look forward to welcoming you back to Dolphin Dance on your next beach vacation.

Dolphin Dance

by dallas TX

We loved our rental at Dolphin Dance. It had a wonderfully stocked kitchen along with a perfect wrap around screen porch. It was nestled in the woods but had very easy access to the beach within easy walking distance. The staff was attentive when we needed assistance. A great spot for making memories at the beach!

Our first trip to Seaside

by Harrison OH

We traveled in early June 2020 and absolutely fell in love with this place! The house was clean, beautiful, had everything we ever needed in kitchen. The porch was one of our favorite gathering places as a family! The property came with bikes and beach chairs which were a big plus! This was our first time to seaside and we will definitely be back!

Perfect Retreat

by Washington DC

5 of 5

The house was perfect for our quick trip to Seaside. The house itself is beautiful and very clean. The kitchen and bathrooms were well appointed with a number of thoughtful touches from the owners. Access to the beach is a quick walk away and the town center of Seaside is a quick bike or car ride away. Our whole party was very happy with our stay.

We are glad you enjoyed your stay!

Dolphin Dance Review

by Birmingham AL

5 of 5

My stay at Dolphin Dance was a great experience. The house was very well outfitted with everything I needed and more than I expected. There were even small housewarming treats waiting for us from the very thoughtful owner. The house is updated with a modern feel mixed with plenty of charm and was super clean. The community pool is wonderful and very close to this property. Note that there are cameras set up out front and out back so the owners will see all of your comings and goings. That didn't bother me. I would recommend this rental home.

Response from Benchmark Management

Sandy, thank you for your review! Dolphin Dance is truly one of a kind. Nestled in the beautiful neighborhood Grove by the Sea. The professional designer/engineer owner tends to every detail of this home and it shows! There is a very nice community pool close to the house. This property comes with 4 adult bikes ,Beach Cart to carry beach gear, and 4 backpack chairs for beach use. This makes packing very easy. Don't this one slip away form you! Call Benchmark to book Dolphin Dance today!

Wonderful Family Beach Week in Dolphin Dance

by Knoxville TN

5 of 5

We loved our week at Dolphin Dance! The location is so wonderful. We had a baby and a toddler in the group and it was a short, easy walk to beach. The beach access was right at the end of the street and you didn't have to get out in the 30-A traffic to go to the beach. To top it off, the pool was diagonally across from the house and right on our way home from the beach. The house was well decorated and was a great floor plan. Our family of 7 fit perfectly. The kitchen was well supplied. I would suggest a traditional coffee maker be added for the real coffee drinkers (not just a Kurig). Publix and the fish market were within a 5 minute drive and great restaurants in both directions on 30-A. I would definitely return and would recommend to others!

Sea grove beauty

by Lafayette IN

We enjoyed our stay . Actually preferred over Seaside due to traffic and quiet!

Response from Benchmark Management

Thank you for taking the time to submit your review! This is a truly fantastic community isn't it! Dolphin Dance is so close to the action but yet tucked away where you can experience the tranquility of the area. Especially in this home - the screened in porch allows you to enjoy the evening while the balcony off the upstairs Master suite allows a quiet area to sip your coffee before the rush begins! The interior is amazing as well - the owner has put much thought into the design and comforts of this home for your enjoyment! Come enjoy it today - you owe it to yourself to experience the beauty of 30A!

Wonderful beach getaway!

5 of 5

We arrived after dark, unpacked and opened a bottle of wine. Both the living room and the screened porch are great places to relax, and the luxurious Cal-king bed did not disappoint! The next day we were ready for action, and walking the beautiful and quiet white sand beach suited us just fine. We visited the nearby Publix for provisions and enjoyed the well-appointed kitchen - it was easy to feel right at home. We also took the first of several bike rides, a really nice way to see the communities along 30A! When our daughter, son-in-law,, and five year old granddaughter arrived, we were ready to explore the area’s parks and beaches! Our daughter exclaimed, “This is like a luxury hotel,” so getting them out the door took a little coaxing��. Once we did, we particularly enjoyed Grayson Beach State Park, walking along the dunes at Deer Lake State Park, and exploring the historical structures and nature trails at Camp Helen State Park. Though we particularly enjoyed buying fresh fish to grill “at home,” we did love the Seagrove Village Market Cafe. Too bad the community pools aren’t heated - they were a bit too cold for swimming while we were there. All in all, a great experience!

Response from Benchmark Management

Thank you for your glowing review of Dolphin Dance! This home truly is a gem - for all of the reasons you mentioned! This beauty is tucked inside the wonderfully quaint neighborhood of Grove By The Sea - where you can ride your bikes, walk with your loved ones or just sit, relax and listen to the birds singing! Just across from the beautiful community pool (which Mother Nature will have heated for us soon) and an easy walk across 30A to the beach you are never far from the water! Today is a great day to experience the cozy comfort of Dolphin Dance!

this house made our trip even better!

by kingston springs TN

5 of 5

We go to seagrove every year for fall break. It's become our favorite time of year. We usually try a different house everytime we go, b/c there are so many to choose from. We look at location, size of home and comfort.
We hit the jackpot this time! We loved the décor, ALL the little extras, these owners thought of everything!! We loved the porch, the openness of the first floor and the master bedroom/bathroom was perfect.
We will definitely come back to this house, it truly made our stay even better!

Response from Benchmark Management

Thank you for submitting your review - we are so happy you enjoyed your stay at Dolphin Dance! This is such a great property - the neighborhood is charming, the pool is right across the street and the beach is a short walk across 30A! Not only is the location great but the property is truly a gem - the owners have been very thoughtful in the design as well as the amenities provided. They want you to have a 5 star experience and they work very hard to ensure your comfort and convenience! We do hope you will choose Dolphin Dance for your next visit to 30A - you owe it to yourself to have this experience!
