Mystic Dolphin 1, 2 Bedrooms, Sleeps 4, Walk to the Gulf
Mystic Dolphin 1 is a tropical paradise; Just a 10-minute walk from the beach and the Gulf of Mexico, it sits on a quiet street overlooking an inlet of Estero Bay. From the living room and the screened-in patio you can look out at lush mangroves and palm trees; once you step outside and stroll out on your private captain’s walk you can watch manatees play in the water as you fish. Vacation getaways don’t get much more idyllic than this!
A two-bedroom, two-bathroom home in a duplex, Mystic Dolphin 1 can sleep up to four people—and a four-legged friend or two as well. Because each bedroom includes a queen-size bed, the home is as well suited for two couples as it is for a family.
Speaking of the living room, it’s wonderfully spacious. The smooth tile floors will feel refreshingly cool under your feet when you return from the beach. Stretch out on the sofa or the settee and watch TV (there’s a Chromecast so that you can access your streaming channels), surf the web via the free Wi-Fi. Gather around the coffee table for a game of Scrabble, or treat yourself to a well-deserved nap beneath the gentle breeze of the ceiling fan. (Don’t worry: Mystic Dolphin 1 has air-conditioning as well; this is Florida, after all!)
Sliding doors connect the living room to the patio. Furnished with chairs and its own ceiling fan, it’s sure to be a favorite place to savor your morning coffee and to chat with friends until late at night. As the salt-fresh breeze rustles through the shrubs and fronds you’ll congratulate yourself for choosing such a glorious locale for your vacation.
A highlight of any getaway is trying new restaurants. Sometimes, though, nothing is as relaxing as eating in. Mystic Dolphin 1’s bright, open kitchen makes cooking a pleasure. Stainless-steel appliances, a full array of cookware and tableware, with plenty of counter space: This kitchen has it all. One of the counters doubles as a breakfast bar, with stools so that friends can keep you company as you prepare your feast—and while they’re sitting, you can hand them a peeler and put them to work! Beside the kitchen is the dining room. There are chairs for four, but the table is large enough for you to pull up the stools so that up to six can dine together.
Both bathrooms include a combination shower/tub. When you arrive you’ll find plenty of clean towels, the beds perfectly made up, and extra bedding ready and waiting. Mystic Dolphin 1 has its own washer and dryer too, so feel free to pack light.
Be sure to bring your sunscreen, however. As relaxing and comfortable as Mystic Dolphin 1 is, you probably won’t be spending all that much time inside. The home has a large backyard where the kids (and the dog!) can run around, and just beyond is the walkway to the inlet. Even if you don’t fish, you should come out here at least once first thing in the morning so that you can catch the sunrise—it’s that spectacular.
For equally wonderful sunsets, head to the beach and the gulf. Of course, you’ll want to head there other times of day as well, to swim, paddleboard, canoe, kayak, race jet skis, bodyboard, collect seashells, or watch dolphins frolic among the boats bobbing in the water.
When you stay at Mystic Dolphin 1, for a small fee you will have access to the Bay Oaks Recreational Campus, which has a pool, tennis and basketball courts, and a gym. You’ll also want to make time to explore Lovers Key State Park, where you can hike, bike, canoe, and kayak, and to check out the restaurants, nightspots, and street performers of the island’s Times Square.
However you spend your days, you’ll love returning to the serenity and comfort of Mystic Dolphin 1 afterward. Book your stay today, and get ready for the ultimate Fort Myers Beach experience.
