This river front unit is one of only three 4 bedroom/3 bath units, located on the 2nd floor in a low density building (27 units in all). This is a family oriented condo, is very quiet, and a great place to relax and enjoy both the beach and river.
The unit has been newly updated with a new kitchen, floors, and new furniture. Master has a King bed, second and third bedroom have Queen beds, and the fourth bedroom is a bunk room with 6 built-in bunk beds. Cable television in all bedrooms (upgraded with Family package and Showtime), as well as high speed internet WiFi access. There is even a Wii console in the bunkroom with a number of games available for when the kids want to take a break from the beach. Fishing rods are also provided, so your family can fish the lights next to the fish cleaning station at night.
This unit will comfortably sleep 6 adults and 6 children. The kitchen is fully stocked with all the essentials for cooking, plus more (the owners are just an hour away and spend weekends when the unit is not booked, so we keep it well equipped for our personal use). Each bathroom is equipped with hair dryers.
The Unit has a gated parking lot and a private waterfront overlooking the Ole River and Ono Island. One of the best aspects is that Dolphin Harbor guests have beach access rights directly across the street through Dolphin Key Condominiums, where guests can use the pool and access the beach on the boardwalk. This unit is only one of two with an extended balcony with views both East and West, so you have beautiful unobstructed views. While cruising the back bay, you can watch the dolphins which will actually follow your water craft. You can also rent boats or wave runners a short distance from Dolphin Harbor..
Dolphin Harbor has 15 first come/first serve boat docks and a cleaning station for guests to use during their stay, for those who want to bring their own boat. When you leave in your boat, place the placard (see picture) at your boat slip and it will be open when you return. There are three public launches just a few miles away (you can check them out on Google Maps), so access is quick and easy. Perdido Pass is just a mile west, with great fishing in Ole River, particularly early morning and at night on lighted docks up and down the River. You can easily catch a mess of speckled trout, redfish, and flounder in the river, or head out in the Gulf for some Spanish, or other deep sea fish. Or buy a crabtrap and set it off the docks for a slew of Blue Crabs!
There are no boat trailers allowed in the complex parking for guests, but the owner can help with locating a short term storage location for your boat trailer. The River directly behind Dolphin Harbor is a no wake zone, with a sand bar on the north side of the River directly across from your balcony. You can anchor your boat next to the sand bar and allow your children to play in knee deep water, free from boat traffic.
Nightlife and your favorite places to eat are literally within a couple of miles, with FloraBama just 8/10 of a mile East of the Condo. The closest grocery store is Publix, located at the intersection of Perdido Beach Highway and Highway 161, just a few miles west of Perdido Pass. This unit is great for families with children, as you can watch your little ones play in the pool next to the River from your balcony, or go across the street to Dolphin Key and hangout at the beach and pool.
The complex is just a short drive to the Pensacola Air Station Museum. There are many opportunities to golf in the area as well.
