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.
