You will enjoy 650 interior square feet, plus a screened lanai. This is not a studio unit -- the bedroom is completely separate from the living spaces.

This unit is on the top floor (3rd) and one of the closest to the beach, affording beautiful views reaching all the way to Naples.

Dolphin Way is near the north end of Bonita Beach, on a quiet cul-de-sac. It is a premium gated condo community featuring tiled walkways, a beachfront pool, and on-site management.

Your under-building parking space is directly next to the elevator.

The interior is crisp and clean, with 16-inch diagonal tile throughout, and many newer furnishings.

The kitchen is fully equipped for the chef -- utensils, cookware, and spices. Your bedroom and bath are stocked with plenty of high quality linens. Plantation shutters in the bedroom allow both plenty of light as well as privacy.

There are flat panel TVs in the living room (with DVD player) and master bedroom. The living room also features a stereo system with CD player and iPod docking station. The unit is equipped with high speed WIFI, and has a landline telephone that allows toll-free calling within the United States, and low rates for International calls.

In addition to A/C, the unit has ceiling fans in the bedroom, kitchen, living room, and lanai. The front door and the bedroom slider have screens which create wonderful flow-through breezes when cooler weather allows the lanai sliders to be kept open.

The unit has beach chairs, plenty of beach towels, and floats ready for surf and sun.

Laundry facilities are conveniently located a few steps from your front door.

Dolphin Way is 10 minutes from Lovers Key and Barefoot Beach State Parks, and 30 minutes from the Fort Myers airport (RSW). And this unit is about 90 seconds from the Gulf of Mexico (by foot).

PLEASE NOTE: This is a TOBACCO-FREE unit -- No smoking nor other use of tobacco is permitted in the unit, nor on the lanai, nor on nearby walkways where smoke may draft back into this or nearby units. Users of tobacco should not rent this unit. Any signs of smoking or other tobacco use in the unit or on the lanai will result in loss of deposit.

Sorry, no pets due to condo rules.

Rental occupancy is limited to three persons. The sleeper sofa in the living room is suitable for one person only.

Please don't hesitate to contact us if you'd like additional information or more photos!
