    Dolphin House is located on Little Hickory Island, surrounded by the Gulf of Mexico and halfway between Naples and Ft Myers. Private residences only are permitted in this section of the beach, and the lack of crowding testifies to this. The beach is 150 feet west of the front door and is teeming with ocean life, especially in summer. May through August is turtle nesting season, with tracks and nests dotting the shoreline. Shelling and bird watching is excellent here also with heron, egret, eagle, osprey, pelican and gull all present. This owner-maintained residence has been completely refurnished, including new leather furniture and carpeting throughout. The gas heated, screen enclosed pool provides a private place to relax after enjoying the beach, where the gulf water temperature in summ... more

    Additional Location Information
    Dolphin House is located on Little Hickory Island in sub-tropical southwest Florida. We are surrounded by the Gulf of Mexico to the west and Fishtrap Bay to the east (see aerial photo). The setting is authentic Florida with coconut palms and seagrass on the beach dunes. This section of Bonita Beach is residential single-family housing only, and the beach is very natural and uncrowded. From the beach, Fort Myers is visible to the north and the Naples skyline can be seen to the south. During winter months, southwest Florida is the warmest spot in the U.S. and during summer months, an ocean breeze moderates the temperature. Bonita Beach has great opportunities for shell collecting along it's six miles of sand beach. A fishing pier is located in Fort Myers Beach, a 20 minute drive north along the coast. Along the way, numerous restaurants line the waterways offering everything from fresh seafood to grilled steak.
