Texas Beach Vacation

They’ve thought of everything

Dolphins Beach Cottage has earned the rare Blender Bonus Award from my family, meaning that a blender was included without having to request it. And, for the first time in our experience, there was even a slow-cooker, outdoor cooking utensils, potato masher, salt and pepper, and cooking oil along with what I would expect and everything else I could think of. The included items were, by far, beyond those we’ve experienced elsewhere during our travels at extended stay and time-share locations. The thoughtfulness extends throughout the cottage that came stocked with games, movies, beach chairs, sand toys, folding TV tray tables, telescope, and a charcoal (you bring the briquettes and lighter) grill. The grill is near the downstairs foot wash and picnic table, and the deck/porch upstairs contains additional chairs with a side table and bench seating. We spent the majority of the time enjoying the sea breeze and views of the surf from the deck/porch with morning coffee, afternoon tea, and evening cocktails then nightcap. While adventure was certainly an option, we chose to relax with an occasional beach walk. We are not bird watchers but enjoyed watching different birds on the shore and the many brown pelicans dive for fish. Having everything we could possibly want already there really allowed us to de-stress more thoroughly than we ever have before. It was truly a revelation. We will be back.
