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.
