We bought this wonderful property in 2012 and try to visit as often as we can. We own a well known restaurant on Cape Cod, Gerardi's Cafe and come from a long line of wonderful chef's. We have two young children, and lots of family who love to stay at The Dolphin House.

Brooke purchased this house in 2012

When we first looked at this house to purchase we were very impressed with the wonderful plants and flowers on the property. All sorts of fruit trees abound including mango, oranges and grapefruit. The house is well laid out with split bedrooms, and baths and a large lovely screened lanai. It's a short stroll to the private deeded beach access and restaurants and tourist attractions are all very close by.

Ideal location to the beach, restaurants and tourist attactions. House is comfy, very well equipped (especially since the owners are professional chef's) and everyone who stays at the property loves it...read the reviews! We are very reasonably priced for Sanibel and will consider allowing well behaved pets to stay with their owners.

We had a wonderful month at Sanibel. The property was clean, well equipped and spacious. Having the bikes and beach chairs and umbrella there was very convenient. The kitchen was the best equipped of any vacation rental we have been to.the yard was well landscaped and provided privacy from neighbors. The hot tub was well used! The only negative was the lack of a bike path on Rabbit Rd.

I had a great time. the house was beautiful, but a little too "Rain Foresty" outside. Mosquitos and ants were abundant, but this is Florida. The walk to the beach was a bit far carrying all our chairs and stuff. It was nice having all the conveniences already there, the beds were comfy, the stairs were killer. Not recommended for bad knees.

We had such a relaxing stay at the Dolphin House. The house had everything we needed. It was very clean and comfortable. We enjoyed the bicycles, beach toys, beach towels, and even beach bags. The owners have everything covered!!! The location was an easy walk to the beach. Didn't think we would use the bicycles much but it was such an easy ride we used them everyday. The hottub is a nice added touch to enjoy as well. Oh, and the screened in porch was awesome as well. There was plenty of seating inside and out for all to be comfortable. We would love to stay here again. The communication for the rental agreement and any questions we had was a breeze before during and after our stay. I would recommend this property to a friend or relative even though I would love to just keep it my little secret escape from the world place. :-)
