About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8) Underneath parking

After spending time in the Laughing Dolphin you'll provide your own superlatives to describe your vacation in our beach home. This single family home on stilts was built in 2000 and has been lovingly maintained by the owners. It has provided countless days of enjoyment and relaxation for our family gatherings, and our guest.

Watch the sun rise from the rear deck overlooking the community pool (only 13 homes have access) and end your day relaxing on the covered front deck or step across the street to the beach for a gorgeous sunset over the Gulf.

While you are across the road you can stroll for miles on the white sand beach or throw a line in the water and catch your dinner. Either way, be sure to watch for the dolphins who can be frequently seen playing near shore.

We accept VISA & MASTERCARD Cards for your convenience!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Rick & Patricia,

Thank you so much for sharing your lovely home with us. It was great having direct owner contact. The beach house was inviting and very comfortable. We read, fished, walked on the beach and watched a beautiful sunset. The home met our needs and we were able to relax! We are so glad we found you guys and look forward to our next trip. Thank you for the gifts. We will always remember the wonderful trip to the Laughing Dolphin.

Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from Laughing Dolphin. This place was perfect for a big family. Plenty of room and just steps across 98 to the beach! We also loved the quieter end of the beach, away from PCB. If you are looking for an incredibly comfortable and affordable place to stay, this is it! We will be back.

Wonderful place! Be mindful, the bunk beds are small and literally in a closet!

  • 4 of 5

Need more supports on the stilt foundation. The whole building shakes with one person walking in the home!
