The management staff at Island Vacation Properties were quite helpful and easy to deal with, this is the first time we have used them on our many stays at the island. I would def use Island Vacation properties again.
Blue Dolphin Inn -Heron up is an older properties but is in pretty good shape the grounds are well kept, we stayed up stairs and were quite happy with our quaint island home. Even though it is a 4 plex we never heard our neighbors and our porch felt quite private.
I love that it is only a few short blocks from the beach. We always bring our bikes and ride to the Rod n Reel , the City Pier or to the many wonderful places to eat .Least not forget Jane and Jennies at the Old IGa for the best sweet rolls in town!
We will def be back to Blue Dolphin Inn. There is never a long enough time on the Island. Read more
Thank you for the great review! We're so glad you enjoyed your stay. We hope you can come back again soon!

We loved the Heron at The Blue Dolphin Inn. Yes, it could benefit from some updates (especially the kitchen), but it was perfect for us regardless. The location is wonderful, because you are within a quick walk to beautiful Bean Point. It's also an excellent area for bike riding (rather quiet and little traffic), but a quick ride will bring you to the shops on Pine ave. The unit itself was clean, spacious, comfortable, and had its own washer and dryer. We enjoyed the pool and had dinner in the outdoor seating area. Love staying on the north end of aMI...love the Heron!
P.S. You must try the Key Lime Doughnut from anna Maria Donuts on Pine ave. Best. Doughnut. Ever. Read more
Thank you for your review, we're so glad you enjoyed your stay! We will pass on your feedback about the kitchen to the owner. We appreciate your input!

Lovely place to be

I was there for 6 weeks and absolutely love the location. Being there that long I feel that I should have had a decent mop and some windex. The unit is fine, I bring items from home and lots of flowers to warm it up a bit. It is a very comfortable place but all four units are dark and could use more lighting.. This is a lovely place and a fabulous location. I wish they would allow small dogs.
I am looking forward to coming back to tHe Blue Dolphin Inn next year. Read more
