Excellent communication with owner Paul when I was initially enquiring about facilities in this apartment. Even more helpfulness when on departing we discovered we had locked our iPad in the apartment. I rang Paul and although he couldn't get us back into the apartment in time to make our flight, he kindly posted the iPad on to us. The apartment was spacious and clean and had the most incredible views over the marina, the port and beyond to the hills. We loved sitting on the balcony in the evenings watching the lights come on then the planes preparing to land at Adelaide airport in the distance. Paul had left us wine, cheese and other items to start us off. There were books to read plus tourist information and downstairs on the ground floor was an excellent restaurant Portobella which did special takeaway deals for apartment residents - two pizzas or pastas for $25. We took advantage of this on several nights and enjoyed eating on the balcony watching the birds and occasionally the dolphins. Everything worked as it should and it was amply equipped with everything we needed, but there was no wi-fi in the apartment and that plus a mattress topper for the bed which was a bit on the firm side are the only improvements that we would recommend. We will definitely stay here again. It was minutes from the beaches, the Westfield mall and trains to the city, plus it was comfortable and had those incredible Port river views. Thanks Paul for renting your apartment to us. We had a great holiday there.

Our stay at Dolphin view was amazing, so peaceful, great views and so many things for the kids to do including the pool and spa, walk along the river and the playground across the other side of the river was not so far away.  Only a short drive to Semaphore the beach was lovely and the local maritime, aviation and railway museums were fantastic.  We certainly will stay again and definitely recommend Dolphin view at Nautica to friends and family.  Thank you so much!

We had such a wonderful stay.The apartment was absolutely beautiful to come home to each night.  We especially loved how easy it was to get to the city, Westfield shopping centre, the beach, and other various places we visited.  We have already been recommending it to family and friends.

Pauline & I would like to thank you & Debbie for a wonderful experience with our stay at Dolphinview at Nautica. What a beautiful quiet location with a superb view, waking up to dolphins each morning is something we could definitely get used to. I would highly recommend your apartment as an Adelaide must for accommodation.

Dolphins every day!  The apartment was exactly what we expected, my partner didn't believe me when I told him there are dolphins living in the port river, but we saw pods of at least 4 or 5 nearly every day from the balcony. It was easy walking distance from semaphore rd and west lakes and it was great having the secure car park in the basement.

Specatular Views  “Thanks Paul, our week in Adelaide was great and having such a nice apartment as our base was key to that. Spacious, modern, well appointed, spectacular views and everything works as it should. The heated lap pool/sauna/spa/gym complex was a great surprise – icing on the cake.”

Excellent location
From the simple booking to the personal welcome - the accommodation was ideal for our group of four. We enjoyed the views (and yes - the guaranteed dolphins) and the local walks. The easy proximity to local facilities made our stay very comfortable. Andrew and Helen Fithall and friends

"We booked Dolphinview after struggling to find a decent hotel room on the web. Glad we did. A large spacious luxury apartment that had all the comforts of home and it cost less than a hotel suite! Paul the host was there to greet us and helped us settle in with a bottle of sauv blanc and a cheese plate. He explained that we would see dolphins everyday - and we did! Plus a two metre shark that cruised around the marina for an hour! All the sights and city were within a twenty minute drive making it easy to get around. We will remember to book Dolphinview for any future travel to Adelaide. Thanks Paul and Debbie."

“We were delighted to arrive at Dolphinview and be welcomed by Paul, it was lovely to have wine and cheese in the fridge! The apartment was like home from home…clean comfortable beds, well equipped kitchen and laundry facilities. Sadly we didn’t see any dolphins, but there was plenty to do within easy reach of Dolphinview. The children enjoyed the lap pool at the gym on the days that were really hot after going to the beach! Thank you Paul and Debbie for a very enjoyable stay.”

"We had a wonderful stay at your apartment. It had everything that we could ever ask for and we're so glad we chose NOT to stay in a hotel. Dolphinview has more than everything that a hotel has to offer. It was so clean! Brooke had a fun time swimming in the indoor pool. Thank you for allowing us to check in earlier than the stipulated time. It really made our day! It saved us from driving aimlessly round the city for hours! Our friends love the photos of Dolphinview we posted on our Facebook pages and we have highly recommended this accommodation to them.  We will be back when Singapore Airlines has special tickets on promotion to Adelaide again!"

"The apartment is spacious and tidy, and located well for the local station (Adelaide city centre is 25 minutes away by train). The best thing, however, was the welcome we received from Paul and Debbie. Wine, bread and milk were provided (along with cake and a cheese board!) and Paul went out of his way to find answers to our questions. We are happy to recommend Dolphinview to our friends."

"A spacious & secure, modern, clean and very comfortable Apartment overlooking the Marina and river where the dolphins live and regularly pass by. The balcony view is expansive, serene and very picturesque with the added bonus of also having lovely views over the entire Semaphore area to the ocean from the rear bedrooms. A short or long stay here would both be entirely possible. Just a short drive to anything you would want to be close to on any holiday, leaving you spoilt for choice. Thanks to a very informative and accommodating owner, Paul, who greeted us warmly, assisted us with luggage, gave us flexibility; all adding to the ease of our 3 night stay."

"We have just returned from a wonderful holiday staying in this lovely apartment. Paul was wonderful to deal with - and made us feel very welcome when we arrrived - the wine , cheese and other goodies in the fridge were much appreciated. The location was excellent and we quickly travelled to the city and down the coast daily. The supermarket and shops are very close and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay - we will definitely be back to stay again"!

A beautifully presented apartment, perfect to relax in in air conditioned comfort during the heat wave while we visited for the week in February. Sempahore Beach, a day at the cricket, a visit to Barossa Valley and Hahdorf then through to Goolwa, and each night we returned to wonderful tranquility.Thank you for a wonderful holiday base.

"I want to thank you for the gift of cherries that you left us after fixing the airconditioning problem. It was most unexpected, but greatly appreciated. We also enjoyed the other complimentary wine, cheese and other items you provided this year. It is those little extra things that certainly add to the holiday experience. Our time spent in Adelaide was restful and enjoyable, thanks, in part, to the quality of your unit. I hope you and your family had a great Christmas and all the best for the new year."

" We have not stopped raving about it to family and friends. It was great! The position was excellent so close to public transport. We took the train into the city and had a great day. Also being so close to Semaphore Road there was no shortage of eating out options, and with the supermarkets at Port Adelaide so close all bases were covered. The kids loved having a pool in the building, dolphins out the window and the beach and fun park a short 5 minute drive away! Needless to say, we were just like other guests who advised they did not want to leave. Next time we are in Adelaide I am guessing the booking will be for two weeks.”
