Exceptional vacation

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I recently stayed at this home and had a great time. The home is very clean with updated appliances. We brought our 19 ft. Boat and the dock area was perfect. The garage area was huge with plenty of room for our boat and fishing gear. There is a park nearby with a nice large boat ramp. The home is within biking or a long walk to waterfront shops and restaurants. It is in a very nice neighborhood. The large heated pool was wonderful after a day out on the boat. The master bedroom is separate from the other bedrooms so very private and quiet. The king size bed had a mattress that was extremely comfortable with the softest sheets. Nice towels and plenty of them. Washer and dryer are high end front loader. My husband is very tall and the master bath shower was a large step-in which he really liked. The owner, Lisa, is so nice to work with. She is very gracious and tries to accommodate your every need. The home has WiFi so my husband was able to stay in touch with his office everyday. This was one of our most relaxing vacations. We thank Lisa for allowing us to rent her beautiful home and will definitely rent again when in Punta Gorda.

Great Vacation Property

  • 5 of 5
Our vacation at the Salty Dolphin was one of our best so far. The house is very clean with three large bedrooms which came in handy when the familty arrived. The pool is also large with a sitting area and BBQ near by that made great afternoons for the family.
The canal was interesting with lots of fish and I actually saw a Dolphin looking for food.
It is possible to walk to the 'Fisherman's Village' if you are an energitic walker or makes for a leasurely bike ride. Sidewalks run from the house to the downtown area.
We joined the St Andrews South Golf Club for the month of March which is only a five minute drive from the house. This was a great investment due to the location and it the friendliness of the club staff and members.
You can not go wrong by renting the Salty Dolphin for your vacation.

A very nice place to stay in the winter

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed at the Salty Dolphin for 2 months this winter (we are senior snowbirds). Lisa ( the owner) was a pleasure to work with; the minor problems that arose during the rental were quickly handled and the security deposit was returned immediately following our departure from the Salty Dolphin. The swimming pool was a real treat and its heater worked very efficiently to keep the water temp comfortably warm (without a large electric bill). As a result we were able to use it almost every day.
The home is well laid out and is situated in a very quiet neighborhood. The home's listing description was accurate although we both felt that it was not quite the "luxury" home that its owners believed it to be. However Lisa did all one could hope for to make our stay a pleasant one.

WOW... The Salty Dolphin is a FABULOUS home. The owners are wonderful to work with and have ample supplies of EVERYTHING but your toothbrush. Quiet, private area with large inground pool on a saltwater canal that our son, niece & nephews love to fish it! (Caught dinner a few times) VERY, VERY clean, caribbean vibes that allow you to relax, rest & enjoy the view. Close dining and shopping at Fisherman's Wharf. Close to the Yacht Club and quick access to interstate if you want to visit Ft. Myers, Sanibel, Sarasota or Siesta Key... Loved staying here.
