Description
Cinnamon Beach Dancing Dolphin, 6 BRs, elevator, private pool, spa, hdtv

Treat yourself to an unforgettable vacation at Dancing Dolphin, our luxurious ocean-view house at Cinnamon Beach. You'll enjoy ocean sunrise and lake sunset views from our balconies, a private pool with spa, an elevator, a state-of-the-art gameroom, and more!

Brand new and designed for large family groups, Dancing Dolphin is just steps from the glorious Atlantic Ocean, where dolphins do indeed cavort in the waves off the shores of Cinnamon Beach. This private beach is composed of coquina-shell sand -- the only one of its kind! -- and is magnificently unspoiled, with rock outcroppings, sparkling waves, and beautiful vistas.

While you're at Dancing Dolphin, you have access to all the amenities of Cinnamon Beach, including swimming pools, a Jacuzzi, an exercise room, clubhouse, kids' splash zone, and café. This gated community offers 24-hour security for wonderfully peaceful beachfront living. You're going to love it!

But you don't really have to leave Dancing Dolphin to indulge in a wide range of games and activities! Our large gameroom on the ground floor offers a 60-inch HDTV with Surround Sound, Xbox, and an all-in-one billiards, ping pong, and air hockey table. The full wet bar includes a small fridge, sink, and wine rack. And it's a good thing we put a sofa sleeper in here, because some members of your party will never want to leave. (And they really don't have to -- there's a bedroom and full bath on this floor, too!)

While the rowdier crowd is indulging its love of games, another group can enjoy the second-floor living room. This lovely space also offers a 60 inch HDTV with Surround Sound, as well as ultra-comfortable seating. And the second floor is surrounded by large balconies with a great sound system: rhythmic ocean waves and the occasional birdsong!

The 2nd floor also contains the kitchen and dining areas. You'll feel as though you've walked onto the set of a television show when you enter our big kitchen, filled with new Bosch appliances. In the cabinets you'll find the full complement of cookware, dishes, glasses, and utensils -- everything you need to transform that bucket of just-caught fish into trout meuniere! Or, if your style runs more to ordering off the menu, you'll appreciate the microwave, blender, coffeemakers, and dishwasher, which all get you out of the kitchen more quickly!

The dining room is designed for a feast, and you'll find yourselves gathering around the spacious table, but meals at Dancing Dolphin tend to make their way to 2 places: the balcony overlooking the ocean and private pool; or the downstairs patio with gas grill facing the sunset!

In addition to the one on the ground floor, there are 5 more bedrooms at Dancing Dolphin, including master suites on both the second and 3rd floors. (When you're traveling with a crowd, 2 masters come in very handy!) Both of these suites offer king-sized beds, big HDTVs, fabulous views from private balconies, and en suite bathrooms with Jacuzzi tubs and walk-in showers. Is this a house or your own private full-service spa?!

Of the other 3 bedrooms, 1 has a queen-sized bed and 2 each contain a twin over full bed with pull out trundle. That is 6 beds in those two rooms alone. Every bedroom has an HDTV, and these 3 rooms share 2 fully equipped bathroom. The 3rd floor has beautiful balconies as well, with breathtaking ocean and lake sunset views.

Your favorite area of all just may be the pool and patio. Our heated pool is fenced, with space for sunbathing. Our propane grill with table and chairs may convince you to cancel the restaurant reservations in favor of throwing some steaks and hot dogs onto the grill and playing Marco Polo with the kids. And the crowd coming home from the beach can go through the outdoor shower, then jump right into the pool! Ah, there's nothing like beach living!

Dancing Dolphin is the ideal vacation venue for groups up to 14. Ideally located, wonderfully spacious, & luxuriously furnished (travertine flooring, crown molding, & charming architectural detailed.)

Dancing Dolphin - Great 1st Family Vacation
A guest from Cary, NC recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in September, 2014
Thanks for sharing your wonderful home with us! Grandma and Grandpa hosted 3 married children, 5 grandkids, and 2 dogs with ease. We enjoyed getting up early for sunrise walks on the beach. The kids loved the home and Clubhouse pools. The gathering places on the 2nd floor kitchen/living room and 1st floor game room were great, and there was privacy for all in the bedrooms and baths on all 3 floors. We even went for crab hunts at night on the beach with the kids and flashlights. Walking in the neighborhood was very nice, too. It rained very hard before we checked in, flooding the back pool area, but we just swept it out and VRPros called in a pool guy pronto to fix the tripped off pool heater. Both grill LP tanks were empty on arrival, but VRPros offered to supply 1 the next day or reimburse us, so we just refilled one at Walmart on a grocery run, and it all worked out smoothly. We reported some little things that need fixing, but overall our stay was a successful 1st time get-together for our family. Yay!?Daniel - Cary

Sham the lack of maintainance gives a gorgeous place a bad rap.
A guest from Shepardsville, KY recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in August, 2014
Place was beautiful, however I had to make 7 calls within the 1st 2 days with everyone passing the buck. Ice maker and hot tub didn't work. Toilet ran continuously. No outside lights at front porch or garage. Came in after dark and couldn't see. There were pieces of orange crackers on rug, couch and over the fabric kids chair. Top drawer in bathroom had whiskers, hair and toothpaste all over it. Outside table was so rusty we could not set at it. Place was such a nice home it was a shame. At the clubhouse pool You could not bring any drinks or food not even a big mug of ice water. A big family could not afford to buy $3 per drink.

Dancing Dolphin
Jim V. from Cumming, GA recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in July, 2014
I've rented from Vacation Rental Pros a couple of times now at Cinnamon Beach. They are a great company to work with. That said, this experience could have been better. Dancing Dolphin is a beautiful home. But we were almost 2 hours late in being able to check in. We had 14 people, groceries and luggage. But the house hadn't been cleaned yet. And they had to do a rush job to get it done. The pool had sand in it until the Friday after we checked in and actually turned green. The power I. The bathrooms didn't work but I couldn't immediately get to the breaker box to resolve things and the front door knob fell off. We paid a considerable amount of money. Overall, we still had a great time and enjoyed the house. We just wished we could have had less issues. Everything got resolved. We just should not have had to deal with things.

Dancing Dolphin 4th of July Family Vacation
Denise R. from Milton, GA does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 7 days in June, 2014
It did not begin well. The jacuzzi tub had two jets that needed parts. The hammock needs to be thrown away! The master tub would not drain. The toilet on the game room floor did not work. They fixed the toilet and tub. The porch had not been cleaned. By Tuesday afternoon we began to enjoy our vacation.

Todd V. from Stotts City, MO does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 7 days in May, 2014
A gated area with very strict rules, a lot of dogs on the beach. No where to eat out if you wanted too, other than fast food. No shopping areas to waste evenings or just to walk and watch. Pool at house was never was right, heater was stuck on, which was fixed within hours of us calling, but then filter did not work. So nothing bad, just didnt work for us.

Great location....DIRTY home
Sarah C. from Reese, MI does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 7 days in April, 2014
We will be sending in a detailed email including photos of the condition of this home. We found animal feces in the media room, empty pop bottles, popsicle sticks and other debris. The furniture was moved together in places and couch cushions were misplaced. We found a used Band-Aid in the living room and MOST DISTURBINGLY a Ziploc bag of pills under the dresser in the childrens room (purple room) I am BESIDE MYSELF with anger. The pills were found after I spoke with the VRPO rep on Wednesday. If my child had found that bag first and taken one of those pills there would be some very serious consequences. I have photos and complete descriptions of everything that was found including date/time stamped photos to show that the majority of these items were found immediately upon check in. I am still contemplating how to proceed with my complaint. I do not feel that the $100 credit that was offered is sufficient. The VRPO reps were great (especially Nancy and the man I spoke with on the 9th - Richard??)...your maintenance company should be fired. You will be hearing from me soon.

Our Family Vacation
Peggy C. from Marietta, GA recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in September, 2013
Dancing Dolphin is a beautiful Home. We enjoyed our stay very much.....loved the lay out of the home. We had 10 people and we could get away to ourselves if needed. We had a couple of problems but were fixed. There were a couple of things we were disappointed in: the kitchen is poorly equipped for cooking in. Some of the plates were plastic, along with bowls and cups that I saw at Walmart. There was a place setting of 10 in the regular dishes no extra's for serving. The house is suppose to be for 16 people. The pillows on the beds were flat and needed to be replaced. I would return to this house again but the view to the ocean will be blocked from the house they are building in front of it. What a shame! Our family enjoyed our stay and plan on coming to the area again but would rent another home because of the beautiful view that will be blocked.Thank You to the owners for sharing their beach home.The Clevelands

Great family vacation
A guest from Jacksonville, FL recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in September, 2013
We stayed for a week in early September with our kids, my parents, and my husband's parents. The house had plenty of living space so that everyone had plenty of space to hang out and be alone if they wanted. We would highly recommend the house with only one small complaint--the kitchen utensils are poorly stocked. We would like to rent the house again in the future, but if we do we will bring some things with us from home. Otherwise, wonderful experience!

Great week at Cinnamon Beach
A guest from Macon, GA recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in July, 2013
We just returned from a fantastic week with our family at Dancing Dolphin. The whole area is beautiful. My family used both pools at the resort and the beautiful beach. Some reviews mentioned the rocks on the beach. There are some, but if you use the boardwalk right in front of the house there are not rocks directly to the front and on the immediate left. The house was great. Spacious enough for our group of 16 without feeling crowded. We had a few instances that needed attention, but help promptly came and fixed the problem. If i could make a few suggestions they would be: 1). the kitchen could use a few more tools for cooking. 2) they really need a separate ice maker 3) a knife sharpener or some new knives. Hard to prepare food with what they have.

A guest from Orlando, FL recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in May, 2013
Positive comments include excellent location and facilities (beach pool at house and community pools), new house with modern design and pleanty of room (and safety features) for 6 adults and 4 kids. Negatives include not being able to visit ahead of time, not being able to determine bedroom locations by floor before arrival, average at best for cleanliness of floors and grill, lack of maintenance for important but non critical equipment,lack of kitchen cutlery, dish towels, poorly maintained pots and pans dishwasher and garage doors.All negatives are easily correctable. We all had a great vacation and the a bit of poor maintance and housekeeping was just a minor inconvience to an outstanding vacation home.

Perfect for Relaxation
Mike R. from Belleville, FL recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in April, 2013
Wonderful location with great amenities. Hammock Beach is FL best kept secret and Dancing Dolphin is the perfect example. Great vacation for the entire family and a true "home away from home". Favorite part was lying in the hammock on the 2nd floor balcony after the sun went down. Very relaxing getting the sea breeze and listening to the ocean waves.

Great Beach House
A guest from Whitehouse, OH recommends this property.
Stayed for 6 days in March, 2013
Overall a really great house and great location. There were a few minor issues as it is a new house and I think they are still working on a few items... the pool has no instructions how to control the heat (and had to walk around the side in the mulch to change anything or turn on hot tub) pool did not drain water from around the pool so large puddles usually around the deck to walk through and into the house... all the bathrooms drained water extremely slow so it built up as you go, no kitchen pantry, but lots of cupboards, grill had some serious flame up issues, garage lights did not work, elevator did not work while moving in (would have been nice with 3 flights of stairs), but did get fixed the next day, location was great to the beach, the beach view and to the clubhouse pools... nice to have a garage to park in or store things, fire pit and heated pool were great, pool was on the small side for a house that holds 16 people, wi-fi was a weak signal and did not cover whole house, awesome master bedroom and bathrooms, overall house was better and larger than the pictures show it to be...

Pool and Internet :(
A guest from Rockford, MI recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in January, 2013
House was beautiful and so was the view. Huge house, great for large families.Internet is extremely slow and spotty. There are 3 or 4 wifi connections with the same name and password which was difficult to figure out. It would connect to different ones depending where you were in the house. When you could connect it was slow and if you moved you might lose the signal.It would have been nice if someone turned the pool and spa on to a comfortable temperature before we arrived. Since no one turned it on I had to call maintenance because there were no instructions on how to use the pool and spa. After waiting a few hours maintenance came out and showed us how to use it.The next day the pool quit working again. I called maintenance again and without even coming out to look at it they said the pump must be broken. They said they would have to call the pool company and have them take a look at it. After waiting 2 days for them to "call the pool company"... which they didn't do apparently, because they sent a new maintenance guy out to look at the pool and he fixed it for us and told us the last maintenance guy showed us wrong.It would be really nice to have some written instructions on how to use the pool properly and have someone turn it on prior to arrival.Other then those 2 issues we had a great time and the house was great.

Beach Fun
Sue T. from Keshena, WI recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in December, 2012
We arranged for our entire family to enjoy a Christmas vacation at Dancing Dolphins. We were very happy with the house. There were 14 of us, including a 2 and 4 year old and a baby. I was extremely happy that the pool was child proof and safe for them. There were not enough chairs for all of us to eat around the table, but we managed. We have rented many houses of this quality in the past years, this was the first house that didn't have the basic kitchen staples, not even salt and pepper. The maintenance crew came on Christmas Day to get the pool and hot tub heated, they were very accommodating and easy to reach. The beach view from the master suite was spectacular. I would recommend this house to any large family. Thanks for the great memories.

Fun getaway for the whole family
Leah L. from Satellite Beach, FL recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in November, 2012
My family of 14 enjoyed our stay at Dancing Dolphin. Upon arrival we had a few issues, but after calling maintenance, Daniel arrived to fix everything. Our entire stay was wonderful and comfortable.The property provided lots of space to spread out and things to do (pool, game room, tv, etc.) The only suggestion i would have for the owners is that they advertise to sleep 16, but the kitchen table didn't provide enough room for our 14. There should be some extra chairs and maybe a folded table tucked away to use when needed. THe outside area was the same situation. Not enough seating for all of us. I also would suggest they have directions to heat the pool/spa, and instructions for the big tv's. Other than that, we had a fabulous time. thank you.

A Home that truly radiates: "Welcome Home"
Paul S. F. from Hendersonville, TN recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in October, 2012
Our family of children, grandchildren (11 of us in all) came to Dancing Dolphin and were delighted by the beautiful home and its many wonderful amenities. The "Maintenance Staff" (especially Danial) were very responsive in helping us with several minor things that came up (we found out that the house was brand new, thus had several things to work through as new houses do). The location is fabulous. We had such a marvelous time, and thank the owners who built such a beautiful home, and opened it up so that families like ours could come together because it was truly such a wonderful home!!!

Almost perfect stay...
A guest from Washington, DC recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in October, 2012
We were so happy with everything (the roominess of the house, the location, the cleanliness, the amenities, etc.), but the pool and hottub were not working, which was very disappointing. I emailed but got no response. I had emailed upon arrival about setting the temp and got immediate response, but I received no response when I emailed that neither were working properly. That's the only reason the entire visit didn't get 5 stars.

A guest from Steubenville, OH recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in September, 2012
Overall our stay was great and the area is beautiful. Appreciated email reminders about trash, etc. Community is safe but a little too quiet. Not much to do in the area so we had to drive to St. Augustine or Daytona Beach for fun. This community seems more like it's a retirement community.

Wonderful multi-family vacation
A guest from Atlanta, GA recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in August, 2012
Beautiful large home close to the pool and beach. We looked at several different properties as options for our vacation. Ultimately, we decided on Dancing Dolphin because it had 6 bedrooms. We didn't realize however, that being just 8 houses away from the Clubhouse & Pool would be so important. It was a super easy walk for our toddlers and made it easy to "run back to the house" when we forgot something. If we had chosen a house at the back of the community we wouldn't have had that luxury. Also, being across the street from the ocean was amazing. You could see the ocean and hear the waves... truly relaxing. It does look like there will eventually be a house built in the vacant lot between this home and the ocean, but for now it's perfect! It's a new home so there are still a couple of kinks that need to be worked out... Elevator didn't work... no summer kitchen as described - just a BBQ grill... no binder with all the "secrets" to make the grill, hottub, etc work. I'm sure these things will all come together in the future.We'd definitely recommend this home.

Dancing Dophin beautiful but not quite ready....
Joann S. from Tallahassee, FL recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in July, 2012
We just returned from a weeks stay at the Dancing Dolphin.The house itself is beautiful and we could not have asked for a better location for the walk to the beach and the clubhouse. We did have some concerns. When originally booking the house the description said that there would be a summer kitchen. A summer kitchen to me is a large grill with maybe a cooktop and a sink with a small fridge. When the pictures were put up it showed only a grill so I called and asked about it and was told that it wasn't quite finished and it would be there when we arrived. After that the description changed on the website. Ok...a little disappointing. We were also ok with 3 floors because the house had an elevator to help with bringing luggage, laundry, etc up and down. It broke down on Tuesday of our stay and we had to call maintenance to fix it. He came the same day and said he would be back the next day....never heard from him again.He told us that he had already been out the week before to fix it and other things as well. That nice refrigerator that you see in the picture was sitting on the outside balcony because it was broken. It had been replaced by a much smaller white one that had no ice maker. We bought a lot of ice during the week....and had to use coolers for some of our food and drinks since the replacement was so small. My bathroom had a couple of issues. The towel rack fell out of the wall when I put my towel on it. It seems that no one put anchors in the wall to hold it up in the drywall. Even I know to do that. The toilet seat was also broken. The screw to hold it in place fell out the first day. For such a beautiful house it seems that they rushed to get it ready and did not do things properly which is really a shame. Like I said the house is beautiful...but I would not have rented it out until it was completely ready. I would make sure these issues were taken care of before renting this home.

Start over
Johnny A. from Chesapeake, VA does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 7 days in July, 2012
I feel bad for having to write this, but I think this will help the people who invested money in this house. First of all, the place was not ready by 3PM, we were asked to wait outside, and some of us drove over 12 hrs. Finally, I asked if we could at least unload our luggage. We had to clean the sheets on 4 of the beds; one had blood stains on it. We did not have enough towels, wash cloths for everybody. The cleaning crew did not know how to operate the elevator and we were informed by the cleaning inspector, that it was broken. Two days later someone came to look at the elevator and found out it was an operator error and it doing so, he discovered with us clean linin, towels, etc. stuck on the elevator. No backup rolls of tissue provided for bath rooms, we had to purchase. The seating for dinning is cheap furniture and is not enough to accommodate 16 quests (one bar stool had screws missing). The refrigerator was too small and had no ice maker, the other one was broken and on the patio. The counter was not clean and crumbs were in the kitchen drawers and the floors had not been vacuumed. The coffee maker was not a standard maker, but a one cup, insert a cylinder; therefore our coffee grounds were useless. The kitchen was under stocked, as if most meals are to be eaten out. The game room is a three in one convertible system, which is not much fun because of its size and will not stand the test of time. We cooked on the grill two times and it was empty or stopped working, we did have an extra tank, but someone from staff came and took it, so we had to ask for another. We had to clean the grill before we use it, but we did clean it before we left. We were all family and were determined to make this vacation fun, so we tried to overlook all the negatives and make this fun. The house is nice and the location is perfect, but it needs an interior decorator to make it worked. I would not be offended it this were not posted, this is for the investors. Thank you.

New house with some problems

Stayed for 7 days in June, 2012
Hi!The house itself was really nice and loction was perfect. Just few steps and you were on the beach. But we have some problems as well. In the first night we found some water accident. When you went to take shower or you go to toilet in 3rd floor there came some water in living room. We had some visitors from maintenance department but they couldn't fix the problem and we never heard anything from them after visit.

Dancing Dolphin vacation
Becky R. from Cumming, GA recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in June, 2012
The home is new and beautiful, however, it was not clean when we arrived at 3PM (check-in time). Beds were not made, they had not vacuumed/dusted and one bathroom was not clean. It took them until 5 PM to finish. At midnight we discovered that one bed was not made at all. The sheets were in the washer wet so we had to wait for them to dry. The housekeepers had started the load, but didn't put it in the dryer. The front door handle was falling off. The refrigerator door squeaked terribly (even though it was brand new) and then the refrigerator stopped working completely the second day. They had to bring us another refrigerator. A towel rack was missing in the half bath and the toilet paper holder was falling off in another bathroom. Vacation Rental Pros was responsive, but the cleaning was not done properly. The maintenance items were taken care of, but it was not something we wanted to deal with for two days while we were on vacation.

Review of Dancing Dolphin
A guest from Rocky Face, GA recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in June, 2012
We stayed in this house the first week in June and were very pleased with our overall experience. The house had a very nice layout and was very clean. This was our first visit to St Augustine and we really enjoyed the area. The house had very easy beach access and was very close to the community pools. The rental company was very professional and easy to deal with. The only reccomendation we would make is that the owners add more outdoor furniture. We had a party of 15 staying in the house and spent most of our time on the balconies of the home. There was a huge balcony off the kitchen area but no furniture to enjoy this space. A hammock or some rocking chairs would be a great addition. We would definitley stay in this home again and would reccomend vacation rental pros. Thanks so much!

Nice place, but needs local restaurants
A guest from Plainfield, IL recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in April, 2012
Our property was new construction. So, as expected, there were a few glitches. The biggest was that the master bdrm did not have a door, few cooking utensils, nothing to clean the pool with... The location did not have any restaurants or bars nearby except the clubhouse cafe, which meant that you had to drive at least 20-30 minutes to go anywhere. With that being said the house was very nice, well decorated and near a beautiful beach. The clubhouses were also very enjoyable. All in all, our stay was a good one.
