The Dolphin Beach Home has a mirror image duplex home that is called the Sea Turtle Pool & Beach Home (VRBO #1021417). You may be interested in this also for multi-family gatherings. The Sea Turtle and Dolphin homes are both beautiful with similar functionality and layouts. Most of the beds, furniture, TVs, Internet and appliances and are exactly the same for both the Sea Turtle and Dolphin. The Sea Turtle Beach Home is on the north side of the property so during the winter (November to March) it is a little more shaded while the Dolphin Beach Home is on the south side of the property that gets a little more sun and natural light coming in. Due to the position of the pool and lanai with the home and the driveway, the Sea Turtle has two bedrooms with direct views onto the lanai and pool while the Dolphin has one bedroom (master with king bed) with direct views onto the lanai and pool area while the other bedroom (guest/kids bedroom) looks out to the green garden area and driveway pickleball court. Otherwise, there are no substantial differences. The Pool, Pickleball Court / Badminton Court, and area to play Cornhole or Golf Ball Toss Game are the only shared areas. There are separate pool lanai seating areas and tables for each Beach Home, separate Grills, separate Fire pots, and nothing else is shared.

The home was clean and enough space for everyone. We enjoyed the pool a lot during our stay. Its close to everything including shopping for groceries and restaurants. I would come back again. Rex was very easy to work with. Anytime we had a question he was available to help us. Thank you Rex!
We rented both apartments with a group of 9 people where all our expectations got overachieved from the aspect of houses / BBQ Equipment / location / environment / beaches and also the provided beach ware. We simply loved the place !!!
We rented both sides with a group of 14 people. Perfect for all of our needs! There was everything at the house that we needed from beach chairs, umbrellas, beach toys to cook wear. We couldn’t be happier with our stay and look forward to returning. LOVE the area!!! Thank you so much for having us!
We loved our stay at Dolphin house. We missed the fact that it is a duplex, so just know it is a duplex and pool and lanai is shared. The pool was wonderful, heated, large, pristine. Quick walk to the beach. Great sand toys, beach chairs and umbrellas, boogie boards, paddle boards, kayaks, bikes, beach wagons etc . Having all the gear made our stay especially fun and easy. Well outfitted house with very nice towels, sheets, , even soap, paper products, and some spices provided. Would definitely go back. Also Rex was an amazing landlord, interested, flexible, and considerate of our schedule needs. Thanks Rex!
