About the property

3 Bedroom / 2 Full Bath On Water With Boat Dock / Lift And Pool

Longboat Key, often referred to as Paradise. Our rental home has just been totally remodeled from the floor up. Everything is brand new, with all the amenities. The house is on a very friendly and inviting residential street ( your bound to make new friends if you wish ).

Just a short walk to the private access beach, as well as upscale restaurants and Durante Park with wonderful walking paths leading back to the bay. Shopping is not far away at St. Armands circle and Sarasota.

About Pam Rogers

My husband and I are a retired couple and have lived on Longboat Key for the past 28 years. We love this little slice of heaven.

Pam Rogers purchased this house in 2013

What makes this house unique

We love the lay out of this home. It's quite deceiving from the out side as the inside is very spacious. It has been renovated from the floor up, everything is new. ( great space for entertaining if you wish ) The pool is very private with all the Palms around it. Located on a canal which is not uncommon to see a Dolphin or Manatee swimming up the canal.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Pam,



We had a blessed vacation. The house is great. I wish I had this much openness and space. One problem, was to clean. HA! You had everything in case we forgot. We were blessed with great weather, sunrise, sunsets beautiful ocean. The birds are amazing. We got to see a Mama and baby Manatee which was a gift from God on our great boat ride.

Everyone had a fabulous time.



Thanks for everything.

Dolphin House is perfect for your Longboat Key vacation

  • 5 of 5

We spent the month of January at Dolphin House and found it to be all that we had hoped it would be. The house and all of its furnishings are impeccably clean with a closet full of linens for the comfortable beds. If you are a cook, you will find every imaginable piece of cutlery, dishes and other equipment you could possibly need. There is a gas grill in new condition, and beautifully landscaped grounds. Although we don't have children, the house is equipped with all kinds of beach toys and games to play. Having sung the praises of the Dolphin House itself, perhaps the best part of our experience was dealing with the owner, Pam, who lives next door with her husband, Ed. Never intrusive but instantly available when called upon, Pam was a pleasure to deal with from start to finish. Just one example: we felt the beach chairs that were provided were too low for older individuals to use comfortably. Within 24 hours of hearing that comment, Pam brought us four brand new beach chairs that were both higher and more adaptable. We have rented places thru VRBO both domestically and internationally, and I can honestly say we have never had easier and better service from any owner.

The home was awsome, very spacious and comfortable, the kitchen was beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation was very enjoyable and we are looking forward to our week stay in May of 2017. We would highly recommend this property for anyone who is looking for a nice quiet neighborhood to spend a very relaxing vacation. The only issue we had was the pool was not heated or have a solar cover so the water was very cold for a Dec. Visit.

Home Away From Home...Really!

  • 5 of 5

This is by far one of the best experiences we have had with a VRBO rental - and we've always had good ones! We were 6 adults in town for a family reunion - house was the perfect size for us. The house looks small as you drive up to it; but wait until you open the front door! It is beautiful - completely updated with an open floor plan; 3 great sized bedrooms; the best equipped kitchen we've ever seen; dock for relaxing or fishing (which we did!) on the canal; and a wonderful pool. It's a short walking distance down the street and across the road to the gulf beach. Great location close to grocery stores, restaurants, and shopping. We ate most dinners in because we all love to cook - the dining room table can be sized to fit 8 people easily. The owner lives next door and she stopped in within an hour of our arrival to ensure we were settled in and to let us know how to reach her if we needed anything. We would have loved to stay for a month - can't say enough great things about or recommend the Dolphin House highly enough. Thanks, Pam!

Great Place For A Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic Fourth of July week at Dolphin House! The location was perfect and we couldn't have asked for more in the way of accommodations. The layout and open floor plan were perfect and the place was more than well stocked. We saw the owner several times during our stay and she always made sure we were having a good time and had everything we needed. We are already thinking about a return trip to stay there again.

Beautiful, amazing and well stocked!

  • 5 of 5

Everything you could possibly need, is in the house or garage. We enjoyed fishing off of the dock, swimming in the pool, and loading the wagon for a day at the beach. The kids road the bikes, and we walked to the beach. The house is beautiful. It was our first time renting a house for vacation, and the minute I walked in the door, I was amazed and relieved. The house I was so nice, and spotless! I would recommend the "Dolphin House" to any family. We plan on making it a yearly trip. Thank you for an amazing vacation, and incredible memories.
