Dolphin House by FVC

4 Bedrooms 5 Bathrooms Sleeps 10 Longboat Key

Welcome to one of the most picturesque views on Longboat Key. Elegance, privacy and nature abound in this stunning Longboat Key waterfront home that is professionally managed by Florida Vacation Connection. Nestled on half an acre at the bay end of one of Longboat Estates' coveted canals, The Dolphin House, designed by local architect Las Casitas in 2003 and named after the abundance of marine life that can be seen at any given time from the 200 ft of waterfront, is a perfect marriage of serenity and style.

From the moment you approach the complex, you enter your private retreat. Walking through the front door, you and your guests will be greeted by the columns of elegance where you inevitably will be drawn to the incredible water views across the room as the bay waters call to you like a Siren. Traveling through the home you are greeted at any turn with a view out to the calm waters. This serenity is reflected in the furnishings of every room.

This incredible home is a 4 bed plus den, 4 car garage, Mediterranean-style residence. You can almost hear the cliff divers splashing into the Aegean Sea. The thoughtfully designed floor plan allows each family member or guests their private and luxurious space. Gather in one of the many public spaces in the kitchen, or family room, or just lounge on one of the covered decks enjoying the morning sun, or watch the colors change and the marine life play in the bay as the sun goes down. High coffered ceilings enhance the expansive layout.

This quality home subtly reminds you of your success and that you deserve to be here. Picture yourself on the pool deck or getting ready to launch your boat off the dock for a day of deep-sea fishing in the Gulf of Mexico. Or just idle to one of the areas of fine dining opportunities on the island.

A ground-floor guest suite allows the separation of guests for privacy. Your ground-floor office offers plenty of space to command your empire - but a note of caution that you might get distracted by the incredible views from the windows and be tempted to walk out the French door onto the open-air deck.

Ascending the oversized stairwell or whisking up via the private elevator, you enter the home's private gathering space where you can read bedtime stories to the children or grandchildren or play board games prior to your slumber. Two additional guest rooms and your master suite await. Each guestroom boasts its own incredible water views.

Your large master suite will be your oasis of luxury as you pamper yourself in the soaking tub or just sit and gaze at the tranquil views. The walk-in closet was constructed to hold your formal wear, tuxedo, or your casual beach attire. Your day ends as you melt into the master king bed and drift off to a silent repose.

If you want to go shell seeking or swimming at sunset, you can access the residents-only gate to one of the prettiest stretches of the Gulf of Mexico hidden behind a bank of luscious sea grapes. Choose to kayak or paddle board in the protected bay that is a haven for some of the local marine life. Watch the dolphins or sight the manatees just off the sea wall. And don't forget to say 'Hello" to the resident blue heron as well as other feathered friends who come to regularly visit the pool and yard daily.

Attending IMG Academy? This is a great home to call home base while your sport professional is receiving training.

You are enjoying some of the most stunning panoramic views from almost every room in the house.

You are home.

You are here. Don't miss your opportunity.

by David and Eileen

This is one of the best houses/villas we have ever stayed in for multiple reasons including the view, wildlife and sea life we can see from the patio.
