Manager info

Year Purchased: 2012

About: We bought this wonderful property in 2012 and try to visit as often as we can. We own a well known restaurant on Cape Cod, Gerardi's Cafe and come from a long line of wonderful chef's. We have two young children, and lots of family who love to stay at The Dolphin House.

Why Private Homes:
When we first looked at this house to purchase we were very impressed with the wonderful plants and flowers on the property. All sorts of fruit trees abound including mango, oranges and grapefruit. The house is well laid out with split bedrooms, and baths and a large lovely screened lanai. It's a short stroll to the private deeded beach access and restaurants and tourist attractions are all very close by.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Ideal location to the beach, restaurants and tourist attactions. House is comfy, very well equipped (especially since the owners are professional chef's) and everyone who stays at the property loves it...read the reviews! We are very reasonably priced for Sanibel and will consider allowing well behaved pets to stay with their owners.
