About the property

Captivating sunsets on the Gulf of Mexico! Beachfront setting and pool!!

Welcome to Dolphin Way Condos on Little Hickory Island in beautiful Bonita Springs! This is a private gated community of 75 condos between 3 buildings. This is a rare find on a huge 400' beachfront property!


PLEASE NOTE: We apologize, those that smoke any type of product should not inquire or read further. This is a completely smoke-free unit, only non-smokers should continue.

Our condo is perfectly situated on the second floor with an outstanding view of the beach, mesmeric waves rolling in and the lush grounds surrounding the pool. All floors are raised up one level to allow for your assigned, covered parking spot. Being raised up allows for even better views of the shoreline and impeccable grounds here.

The unit is conveniently located on the second floor, steps from the elevator, and stairs are located at both ends of the tiled walkway. Each of the three floors have their own coin operated washer and dryer area for use.

You will have access to a very large heated beachfront pool. There are restrooms, outdoor shower, and cold water at the drinking fountain. Tables, chairs and chaise loungers are available for your use. On the sun deck, you may find it enjoyable to stretch out on a lounger and be lulled by the rolling waves rhythmically entrancing you!!

No matter where you are on the grounds, you are only steps away form shelling, walking the beach or bird watching!

You will find everything you need to enjoy an extended vacation, or winter getaway in our unit! This 640 square foot condo has one separate bedroom, one bath, living/dining area and kitchen. The 100 sq ft lanai is perfect for listening to the waves roll in!! We have a tankless hot water heater for an endless supply of hot water for your long hot shower or relaxing bath after a day at the beach. High speed WIFI is provided.

Brand new flooring has been installed with a rich wood look! We have completed a redecoration of all the furniture and bedding, with a sleek modern contemporary feel!! We now boast a crisp clear 47' LED TV for entertainment, as well as a new Sony Blu-Ray WiFi enabled DVD player. You can stream free movies during your stay. A beautiful and stylish modern leather sofa, and additional leather chair for your comfort, is waiting for you too!

The lighting is bright and cheerful, and makes reading, games or crafts easy.

In the private and spacious one bedroom, we added brand new furniture complete with all new bedding, 500 count thread sheets, pillows for maximum sleeping comfort. The new bed and bedding are queen size, allowing an open uncrowded bedroom. There is a fresh clean atmosphere in our well set up condo, directly on the beach. of course!! All of these updates have been made to enhance the comfort and enjoyment of your stay!

Come and experience the joy and peace at Dolphin Way! It is truly a relaxing spot, with dolphins frolicking, bird watching, and shelling beckoning you!

We cannot accept guests that smoke. This is a non-smoking condo, not in the unit, not on the lanai, nor the hallways leading to the condo.

We apologize, we are not set up to accommodate wheelchairs, O2 tanks, or any handicap devices. No pets of any kind are allowed on the DW grounds. This condo is NOT set up to accommodate additional overnight guests. Two adult guests only are permitted, sorry!

About Carol Covinsky

We LOVE DW and the properties that we own here! We have been blessed to enjoy this location, and own three units here. We are very hands on, and think this is the best location along the Gulf of Mexico!!

Carol Covinsky purchased this condo in 2013

Why Carol Covinsky chose Florida South West

Because it is secluded, yet easy to access everything. It is impeccably maintained, on the largest beachfront property on Bonita Beach! Over crowding is not an issue at DW condos!

What makes this condo unique


We are truly a beachfront location!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Carol,

Mary and I enjoyed our stay in your Dolphin Way Condo. We enjoy and treasure the gorgeous ocean view and the spectacular sunsets. Also, your condo is so nicely decorated and appointed with tasteful,comfortable furniture and up to date

appliances. The peace and quiet of Hickory Island and Dolphin Way's proximity to amenities and restaurants makes it the perfect spot for us to "get away from it all". We are already looking ahead to next March and hopefully many more great times. We might also add that the people we have met, including you, have been friendly and gracious and we hope to cultivate those friendships in the coming years!

Best Regards,

Mary and Paul

Dolphin Way Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We have been vacationing in the Bonita Beach area for many years and have stayed at Dolphin Way a number of times. We found this condo to be the nicest yet. The owner was very courteous and helpful before we arrived. On arrival, we found the unit was clean, neat, and well appointed. The owner was always available and supportive. We will absolutely stay here again and recommend to our friends.

AMAZING condo with a great view!

  • 5 of 5

A friend and I planned a girls getaway in the August of 2015. Carol, the owner, was extremely easy going with making the arrangements for us to stay. She even communicated with us upon arrival and suggested some local places to eat. Big Hickory is right down the road and I would highly recommend trying the place out. The condo is well decorated and definitely comes with all the amenities...but who has time to stay inside when the pool and the beach is just a few steps away? It's in a great location with easy access to shopping, local restaurants, and I would recommend this place to our friends. We had an AMAZING time during our stay and we will definitely come back to stay...soon I hope!

Great Condo, Steps away from the Beach!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I visited Bonita Beach to celebrate our anniversary and loved every minute of it! This condo was right on the beach and had a gorgeous view that we enjoyed every morning. The condo was very comfortable and had everything that we needed. We even had a blender and a crockpot that we used to make smoothies and prepare a slow cooked dinner while we soaked up the sun just steps away! The condo was VERY clean and also had brand new appliances! The owners provided all the information which made our stay effortless and were quick to respond to every email and phone call if we needed them! We mostly relaxed on the beach or by the pool but took advantage of the many Groupons available in the area and went on a guided kayak tour and rented paddle boards. We had great weather and at this time of year there was hardly anyone on the beach! You can't be any closer to such a beautiful and quiet beach! We had a much needed relaxing trip - if you are looking for a quiet getaway with great views, just steps away from the beach, look no further and book this condo now!

The Condo exceeded my expectations

  • 5 of 5

I have been vacationing in Bonita Beach for 20 years and this is by far the nicest Condo I have stayed in. I will definitely be coming back next year. The owners were very accommodating and friendly. They communicated with me prior to my stay and upon my arrival to make sure everything was to my satisfaction and to make sure I had everything I needed for my stay. The parking was close to the elevator and a cart is available to take your belongings up to the Condo. The Condo itself is not very far from the elevator which made it very convenient. I had everything I needed for my stay in the condo and it was very clean and comfortable, decorated very nicely, steps to the beach and the view was spectacular. I highly recommend this Condo if you plan to stay at the Beach!

Everything you would want in a beach condo!

  • 5 of 5

Our visit to Bonita Springs was perfect! The accommodations were just right for the 2 of us! Also, the cleanliness and comfort of this condo is far above other similar accommodations. You will not regret staying here if you want a relaxing, restful, quiet vacation! The pool and beach were pristine as well- this is truly an all around wonderful vacation rental.
