Welcome to King Dolphin a 4 bedroom palace with a private swimming heated pool and heated spa. You can even walk from King Dolphin to the beach and the Gulf of Mexico in less than 10 minutes—but that’s the least of this house’s charms. Located right on the bay, with a luxurious heated pool and spa, a huge balcony, and a spectacular outdoor living area, this 4-bedroom retreat is equipped with everything you could possibly want in a vacation getaway. Please note, this is a 1-week minimum stay.
Start your morning with coffee and croissants on the 2nd-story balcony that wraps around the house. Stretch out on one of the chaises and watch dolphins swim among the boats in the bay as pelicans dive for fish. You should make a point of setting your alarm at least once during your stay to catch the sunrise over the water--you won’t regret it!
After you’ve washed up in one of the 3 full bathrooms--including the master en-suite--savor a swim in the impressive heated pool, which even has its own heated spa! Swim a few laps, then dry off on a poolside recliner. The lanai is screened in, so you get plenty of that Florida sunshine minus any insects. **Please note that the bathtub in the Master Suite is temporarily unavailable, but no worries, if you are looking for a nice long soak, the other remaining bathrooms are available.
Now you’ve got to make some tough decisions. Do you cruise the bay in a boat? Walk to the beach for some parasailing, paddleboarding, or shell collecting? Or head nearby to Lovers Key State Park, where you can hike, bike, canoe, or kayak among mangroves, manatees, and other flora or fauna?
Catch up on your favorite shows in full view of endless skies, palm trees, and sparkling waters: Now, that’s luxury!
If you spent your afternoon fishing, you can grill your catch on the large outdoor barbecue, then dine on the lanai. There’s plenty of room for the whole group!
Should you prefer to cook and eat indoors, you’ll love the open, roomy kitchen, with its sparkling stainless-steel appliances and gleaming granite countertops. Cookware, prep tools, tableware: The kitchen has it all. There’s even a breakfast bar with stools so that friends can keep the chef company or the kids can pitch in and help.
Next to the kitchen is the dining table. After dinner, clear the table and enjoy a game of Monopoly or rummy. Or settle into the adjacent living area. The sofa and armchairs are so wonderfully comfortable, you might never want to get up! Then again, with a huge smart TV with WiFi in the room, not to mention free high-speed internet access, why should you? Kick back with drinks and snacks and make it a movie night!
Or you can walk to the island’s Times Square area; it’s just 10 minutes away. You’ll find a wealth of restaurants and nightspots to choose. Isn’t it great to enjoy an evening on the town without having to hop in the car?
Once it’s time to call it a night, you have 4 bedrooms to choose from, each decorated in the same breezy yet pampering style as the rest of the house. The master bedroom includes a king-size bed, a large HDTV with WiFi, an en-suite bath, and direct access to the balcony. With its queen-size bed, the 2nd bedroom is nearly as large as the master; the 3rd bedroom, with 2 twin beds, is perfect for kids. Both of these bedrooms have their own flat-screen TVs. The 4th bedroom has a queen-sized bed
We provide all the bedding and towels, of course, so you don’t have to load your luggage with linens. In fact, because King Dolphin has its own washer and dryer, you can pack extra-light… and even return home with a suitcase full of clean clothes!
At King Dolphin, every detail has been attended to, so that from the time you wake up to the glorious views till you sink into bed and drift off to sleep, you can focus on one thing: making this your best vacation ever.
