Guestbook comments from the owner

We have now for the second time stayed here at the Dolphin house and have enjoyed it very much. The house is well equipped with all that we needed. It is also located in an area with a lot to do. We have visited the beaches and many of the state parks in the area. We have also biked every other day giving us an opportunity to really see the Cape Corals possibilities. Thanks you for renting the house to us.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5
We just simply loved our stay at the Dolphin house. Our 5-year old daughter was in love with her princess (canopy) bed and the pool in the garden. Everything you may need and then some is available at the house. The house is very clean and cosy, the fast wifi connection is an absolute plus and the neighbourhood is quiet and friendly.
We can recommend this vacation home to everybody and hope to return in the near future.

Dolphin House :-)

  • 5 of 5
The house is very spacious and the decor is lovely. The pool is clean and very nice anytime of day.
The bedrooms were large and the beds were comfortable, but the queen was very squeaky, on the other hand, the pull out was far more comfy than expected.
The kitchen was well equipped with basics and cooking supplies, as was the laundry room.
The bikes were okay for adults, but would be tough for even teenagers.
We did not use BBQ, but had breakfast every morning on the deck.
We really enjoyed the area with many beaches and loads of shopping option.
I would give our stay a 9/10!

When we arrived at the Dolphin house after a 23 hour drive from Michigan we were over joyed to find everything as we expected and then some! The home is a lot larger than I anticipated! Lots of Living Space. Fully equipped with anything and everything you could imagine. The pool area is where we were 90% of our stay! It's GORGEOUS and so nicely kept. Having the Laundry with small children was a major bonus. The House was clean and well furnished and in the perfect location to get to all our favorite destinations! The neighbors were Very friendly and the Owners able and ready to meet any request. We will Definitely be back! We are already making plans for next year to return! Thanks So much for sharing your beautiful home!

Nice and quiet place

  • 5 of 5
We spent wonderful 20 days at Dolphin house. We were with our new born baby and it was important for us the place to be quiet and clean. It was so even more than we expected. The home is really fully equipped. I found there everything that I needed as furniture, electrical devices, even games and books. We really enjoyed our stay and we will definitely come back again. I am glad we chose Dolphin house for our baby's first vacation. Finally I want to thank Leonie and Chano, thay are really correct, polite and ready to help.
