Despite the shutdown of the city and beaches, the home offered a great deal of amenities best of which was the lanai pool. Kids had a blast. Charter fishing was close as we're other carryout options such as Ice cream. Beach is a 10 min walk to the water. High end appliances and we'll equiped kitchen for cooking. Great all around.
Curt, thanks for the review. We're glad to hear that you and your family enjoyed your stay. Apparently you were using beach access #1 which is a 10 minute walk south from Dolphin House. Beach access #3 is located just across the street from Dolphin House and that makes going to the beach a 2 minute walk.
Place was great.Great location great pool. We could not have found a better space
Just wonderful . We could not be happier with our choice.
Thanks for the review Jim, and we are very glad to hear that your stay was great!
Location, location, location!
We had a perfect stay. The owners are responsive to any inquiries you may have. The home has been beautifully updated and fully equipped with all the comforts of home. Beach is across the street and we used the pool daily. Several wonderful restaurants are close. Thank you Tim and Connie!
We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay Mark and Lori! Bonita Beach is such a beautiful and relaxing place. We look forward to your return visit.
Responseiveness of the Owner
We really enjoyed out stay in this unit. The owner was extremely supportive and responsive to any of the issues we encountered. When we called he initiated a response within 24 hours to work on resolving any issue we had. We definitely would recommend this unit to anyone especially since he was going to initiate a complete remodel of the unit after we departed. We reviewed his plans and were impressed with the potential outcome. Thanks to Tim for all his help during our three month stay.
Thanks for taking the time to write a review Steve. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay and hope that you can return some day.
Perfect Location. Love having a private pool.
This home is located in an excellent location and is our 2nd year renting it. It’s just steps away from the beach with beach access two houses down and across the street. Owners are available and responsive. The pool is awesome and clean and the screened enclosure is new thanks to Hurricane Irma.:( The house itself could use a few updates but overall met our needs. The only two things I will highly suggest are getting a TV in the 2nd bedroom and a door on the master bathroom. Other than needing a few very minor updates, we love the house, pool, location and the owners are great! We would definitely recommend this rental and look forward to renting this home again.
Debbie, thanks very much for sharing a review of your stay at Dolphin House. We are initiating a renovation next year starting in April.
Dolphin House is located on Little Hickory Island in sub-tropical southwest Florida. We are surrounded by the Gulf of Mexico to the west and Fishtrap Bay to the east (see aerial photo). The setting is authentic Florida with coconut palms and seagrass on the beach dunes. This section of Bonita Beach is residential single-family housing only, and the beach is very natural and uncrowded. From the beach, Fort Myers is visible to the north and the Naples skyline can be seen to the south. During winter months, southwest Florida is the warmest spot in the U.S. and during summer months, an ocean breeze moderates the temperature. Bonita Beach has great opportunities for shell collecting along it's six miles of sand beach. A fishing pier is located in Fort Myers Beach, a 20 minute drive north along the coast. The convenience of walking across the street to the beach provides easy access to the natural beauty of the ocean, providing for a carefree and relaxing vacation.
