FIVE MINUTE WALK TO BEACH FROM THE DOLPHIN HOUSE

Admiralty House House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Dolphin House is a award winning Key West courtyard style home that was designed and built in 1997 by a Florida architect as his personal vacation dream home. We purchased it in 2003 and have spent many pleasurable and relaxing vacations in it over the last eight years. Your no smoking allowed vacation paradise home is only a five minute walk to Marco Island’s new public beach access. Resident’s Beach is also a five minute walk for any rentals of one month or longer (access requires a pass that can be purchased from Marco Island’s Civic Association). You will also be located just 1/2 block to Marco Island’s lovely Catholic Church.

Dolphin House recently received many updates including whole house paint/wall treatments, new flooring, bathroom upgrades, a front load washer/dryer, Kenmore Elite kitchen appliances, granite kitchen counters, and a beautiful private salt water spa/plunge/and wading pool with automatic controls. Attached to the front porch is a separate casita bedroom with its own bathroom, microwave and dorm fridge. The interior of the house is professionally decorated in a Tommy Bahama style and features four cable TVs (all are LCD flat screens), two DVD players, a stereo, and wireless internet connectivity for your electronic devices.

Outdoor features include six ceiling fans to cool the lanai/pool area, covered patio dining area with a BBQ and front porch from which you can watch a sunset or tropical rain storm with your favorite beverage. The back yard is fully fenced with two huge mango trees that you can harvest from May through July. Well behaved, housebroken, small dogs with acceptable documentation that they are current with vaccinations and are taking flea/tick prevention medication are welcome.

Marco Island has miles of beautiful white sand beaches and warm water for myriad outdoor activities including shelling, jogging, boating, fishing, and wildlife viewing. Restaurants, shopping, attractions, entertainment, and other activities are close to round out your perfect vacation. We live nearby to answer any questions and address all of your needs are met during your stay.

About The Owner

We are retired state government workers from San Diego, California that have loved southwest Florida since first visiting Marco Island in the 1980's. We were fortunate enough to purchase our Marco Island vacation dream home in 2003 for our family to enjoy.

We now live in nearby Naples FL. with our two West Highlands, Max and Madison. We would love to introduce you to southwest Florida and all it has to offer for you to enjoy!

The Owner purchased this house in 2003

Why The Owner chose Admiralty House

We love the feel of a small and safe city that still has nearby amenities and activities.

What makes this house unique

Dolphin House is so close to the beach that you can stroll over for a walk or shelling on the spur of the moment without having to pre-plan, pack up the car, and look for parking.

If you have been searching for that perfect vacation getaway - search no more! THIS IS IT !!
Since retiring 2 years ago my wife and I have spent the better part of the last two winters at the Dolfin House. All the reviews that you can read below are accurate and unanimous. The only thing they leave out is how consistantly great the weather is! For location, amenities, ownership, style, comfort and extras too numerous to mention we can't imagine why you would look anywhere else. Add to that the fact that Marco Island was just voted the #1 Island Destination in the United States by Trip Advisor and you'll understand why we've spent so much time here recently.
One last thought. Upon visiting Dolfin House for the 1st time this year, our grandaughter stated, "Gram, Pop, this really is Paradise! We could'nt agree more!

Even better than pictures

  • 5 of 5
This home lacked nothing. It was even better than pictured. Clean, kitchen well stocked, pool area and spa fabulous. Home is short walk to beach. Owners great! You will not be disappointed. The bedroom layout with the separate casita was perfect for our blended family.

All the information regarding the listing were accurate. Although, the listing and photos were accurate the house actually exceeded our expectations. It was very clean, beautiful, and well maintained. The property owners were helpful and available if we had any questions regarding the property and we would definitely recommend it to others. It was a great location with a short walk to the beach, restaurants and shops. Tiger tale beach was great for shelling, kayaking and enjoying the beach. If you have pets, we recommend Mackle Park, walking and running with a fenced in area for dogs to run loose. If you have time to spend a day in Naples, it is worth the drive (about 15-20 minutes) for shopping and restaurants. Marco Island is very beautiful and clean, we will definitely return and stay at the Dolphin House.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5
This house is 5 star for cleanlyness and equipment. Nothing is missing in the kitchen and the outside area near the pool is fabulous. There's always a nice breeze coming onto the patio!
We were only 2 adults: so plently of place for us to relax, enjoy, get some rest. It is really 5 minutes walk away from the beautiful beach of Marco Island.
I would definitely recommend!

1st vacation since retiring....life is grand!

  • 5 of 5
I spent my first "retirement vacation" at the Dolphin house and only wish that I did not have to leave! The house was better than described. So very elegant and comfortable. All amentities were "high-end", beds were all very comfortable and living space very light & airy. The enclosed porch and pool area was my favorite area to spend time. My friends and family that visited on and off while I was at this house were very impressed by the layout and the comfort. The separate casita was perfect for another room with privacy for my friends to stay. The owners were absolutely wonderful. Always available if I had any questions and helpful with suggesting restaurants. It was so nice to have the patio and pool checked & cleaned by the owner periodically during my stay. The beach access is very accessible within walking distance & the beach chairs, umbrella and cart to bring down to the beach were very appreciated. I brought my little 12 pound dog with me and we loved walking the quiet neighborhood every day. Don't pass this house up - I highly recommend it!

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5
My husband, nine-month old and I stayed here for a week. It was a perfect vacation. The owners are very kind and helpful. They are so conscientious about making sure you know how to use everything, being accessible and keeping the house perfect. The house is absolutely beautiful down to every detail and decoration. It has everything you need for the house and the beach. We spent a lot of time in the courtyard, swimming, sunning, grilling, relaxing, etc. The jacuzzi/pool/wading pool were perfect for us, particularly with a baby. The beach is so close and beautiful - absolutely no need to drive, especially because the owners allow you to use the beach cart. We also enjoyed a stroll every morning to a nearby bagel place. There is a lot in walking distance. We even strolled to the Catholic church that Sunday morning and attended. We are going to try to go back every year.
