About Cynthia Dyrcz
Stan & I designed & built this house upon moving from up north 8 years ago as our future retirement home and ongoing vacation home for our family. Stan works as an Manufacturing Engineer in Gainesville 3 hours away and I am a retired teacher. Most of the year one or both of us are on the island in our house as well as our family members. My favorite things to do are making pottery/crafts and jewelry...reading...walking the beach for sea shells or fossils and gardening. Stan likes to fish and kayak.

A Bit of Old Florida
Dolphin Pass is a wonderful island home. We enjoyed the quiet and peacefulness of this beautiful beach home and Island escape. It is a short walk to the gulf for swimming, shelling, searches for fossilized shark teeth and picture perfect sunsets. The bay provided kayaking and fishing, delivering hours of enjoyment. Dolphin Pass was fully equipped for all our needs and felt just like home - right down to spices in the cupboard! Cynthia was terrific to work with and reliable with all the detailed information we needed. We look forward to another stay!
You will love the Dolphin Pass House and everything about Little Gasparilla Island
We absolutely loved every minute of our stay on Little Gasparilla Island. The house was perfect and exceeded our expectations in every way. It was beautiful, comfortable for our entire family, and was equipped with everything we needed. The location could not have been better. The kayaks were definitely worth the extra fee. The owners were very easy to work with. I can’t wait to plan another visit soon!
An excellent fit for our family of 6
Enjoyed the island very much. House was very accommodating for our family of 6 and our 12 pound dog.
Great Family Vacation
We are just returning from LGI, where we had a great family vacation! So great to unwind and unplug. The house was well suited for our family of four. It was an easy walk to the dock or the beach. The kayaks were great fun. On our final day, our kiddos asked when we could return! Thank you for sharing your home with us, Stan & Cindy!
