We are Leonie and Ron owners of the Dolphin House. In daily life Ron is IT manager at the Netherlands Defense college in the Netherlands and Leonie works as an Office manager for a recruitment company. We both fell in love with SW Florida many years ago and when we aren't staying at the Dolphin house our self, we are happy to let you come and enjoy our home. We have our family living in Cape Coral full time and are also our local property managers.
We had a delightful stay at Dolphin House. A bit too cold to use the pool much. But the house certainly met our expectations and we'd stay there again. Thank you for a great vacation over Christmas!
