Dolphin Way condo description

Your personal Sanctuary................... elegant, professionally decorated, private, quiet and conveniently located on the 4th floor of 'B' building in the Dolphin Way community. This 1BR unit is 10% larger than the typical 1BR unit. (Size is important!) It is located directly on the beach and only steps (135 feet) from the sugar-white sand. Dolphin Way is a gated 14+ Acre community with 400+ feet of beautiful beach frontage and ONLY 75 owners, located on the north end of the very private Little Hickory Island in an area known as Hickory Point. You will feel as though you have your own Personal beach. As you can see in the pictures, the community is meticulously maintained with an unusual amount of green space. The first level is for your covered and Reserved parking. Elevators are available in each building. No walking up 5 flights of stairs with groceries in hand. This unit, although located on the 4th floor, is on the 5th level as the first level is for parking (not true for all communities). From the beach you can see an illuminated Naples or Sanibel at night. Truly impressive visuals from this unit. It has a Penthouse view without the Penthouse price.

If you don't care about the details, read no more.

The unit has been completely remodeled and upgraded with very high quality materials and furnishings. This premium unit has chair rail moldings throughout, special decorative trim on the doors and crown moldings. The entry, hallway, bathroom, lanai and kitchen have imported travertine earthtone tile. The Family Room and MBR have soft plush carpeting to keep your tootsies warm. The kitchen has custom cherry cabinets with Professional series stainless steel appliances. The built-in microwave also has a convection feature. The stove has a 5 burner ceramic top, convection oven and a warming drawer. The french door refrigerator and bottom freezer also has an ice maker. And when it is time to clean up, the dishwasher makes the clean up incredibly simple. Want to elevate your legs, then relax in the family room with His and Hers Barcalounger recliners. Watch your favorite movie or game show on the Sony 40' XBR Bravia 1080p flat screen HDTV. Use the Xfinity on Demand to view all of your favorite shows for viewing on YOUR schedule. Enjoy your favorite music selections on the Yamaha receiver. Klipsch surround speakers (5) give you an awesome listening experience, regardless of your audio choice. A Samsung 3D Blu-Ray DVD player with available Netflix brings you the best in high definition entertainment. The upgraded individual (3 section) motorized hurricane shutters can be raised or lowered effortlessly by the touch of a button, conveniently located Inside the unit. No need to get wet when it's time to lower the shutters. The upgraded Turtle Tinted glass sliders opening to the lanai, have Movable (not fixed) panels that allow you to open up the space to either side (your preference) and have 67% of the glass area open at anytime vs the usual 33% opening. This permits twice the airflow into the unit and increased accessability to and from the lanai. Could it be any easier? The MBR has a new Samsung 40' Smart TV mounted on the wall. There is a folding chair in the MBR closet if you choose to sit next to the bedroom sliders and watch TV.
You will share a washer and dryer, just down the hall walkway 23 steps from the front door, with not more than 2 other owners on the floor. Each floor has its own washer and dryer. Secure wireless high speed internet services are provided through Comcast. An Epson all in one printer is available to print, scan or copy your directions to local dining establishments or shopping malls or your boarding pass just before you leave. VOIP telephone service enables you to call family and friends back home to share the local weather forecast and temperatures. Go ahead, rub it in!!! Significant savings over Diamond Head, Pink Shell Beach Resort, Lover's Key or other comparable beachfront hotels. International visitors welcome. Extended stays are available.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2007

                  About the owner: Young couple from the Hoosier Heartland looking for a quick getaway with a change in latitude and a change in attitude. We swapped a week at our RCI time-share for a week at a friend's condo in the Dolphin Way community. After we enjoyed a very relaxing vacation in this small, private beachfront setting, we decided to consider a possible purchase of our 2nd home.

                  Why the Owner Chose Dolphin Way:
                  We just fell in love with the community. Everyone we met was nice. We participated in the ritual of watching the evening sunsets with friends and fizzies. We can get to our condo with a direct flight in about 2 hrs and 15 minutes. Pick up the rental car and be on the beach in another 30 minutes. The flights are readily available and very reasonable, so we can go on the spur of the moment. The views from the lanai are spectacular!!! The change of environment immediately changes your facial expression to a big smile!!

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  There is an excellent selection of restaurants in the area . The weather, compared to our northern exposure in central Indiana is usually very favorable. Being here at the condo is an opportunity to get away from the busy hustle and bustle of running a business, telephones ringing, deadlines approaching and trying to meet budgets. Depending on the season, we can just sit on the lanai view the Gulf, the beach, and listen to the windchimes while enjoying the morning coffee and juice.
