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.

This is a beautiful home with everything you need for an amazing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We vacation all the time in this area and this is by far one of the nicest rentals we have stayed in. The house is very modern and clean and has everything you need for your stay. The pool was warm, there were beach chairs, beach toys, towels and even a wagon to pull everything to the beach. The beach was beautiful and very private. The area is great, there is a corner store at the end of the road and plenty of good restaurants close by. The owners of the renal live next door and are happy to help you with anything you need. Our family of 6 had an amazing time and will definitely stay here again!

Comfortable & elegant home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This was a return trip and continues to exceed our expectations...so clean it feels brand new, stocked with everything needed..and more. Walking distance to beach, Durand Park, good food...if you want to leave the pool and comfort of the house itself. Pam is an excellent combination of respecting privacy and being available & responsive if needed. Quiet, luxurious...a lovely place to relax & enjoy.

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.

  • 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.
