We proudly present our Caribbean Island Dolphin View, the latest Caribbean Island we planned from scratch and which was custom built to our plans.  

The third vacation house of the Caribbean Island Class came out as a very special shining juwel - it will catch your eye due to the elegance, Caribbean flair and colors.
We would like to emphasize the very fancy and unique pool- and sundeck on a length of 82 ft 4“ and the pool and whirlpool of a total length of about 54 ft – a daydream in blue.

The outstanding location in the easy accessible and very popular community Gold Coast Estates is another big plus for the Caribbean Island Dolphin View. All houses in Gold Coast Estates are waterfront houses, which means a very well-kept neighborhood.

The pool and lanai of this beautiful house are facing to the Southwest on a very wide canal with a grand view above the long and slightly curvy canal, named Keats canal and above intersecting canals. There is sun all day – you will enjoy beautiful sunsets in Cape Coral.

Boaters who prefer short rides to the rive will be glad to learn that you reach the river in about 2 minutes and still are in a protected area to moor the boat.
No long rides through the canals any longer. The location has direct and sailboat access, i.e. there is neither any lock nor any bridge to pass.
Bring your own boat to moor it at our dock - Horton park with several boat ramps is just around the corner. As Keats canal is the deepest canal in Cape Coral, pretty wide and we offer a big dock, even a cruise ship could be tied up at our dock.

Due to the fact that the house is located close to the river there are often dolphins, stingrays, big tarpons as well as Manatees (in the winter months) in the canal close to the house. Our guests frequently point out that they like watching the frequent “visits” of those - some times pretty sized - creatures.
We named the Caribbean Island Dolphin View due to the fact that from day 1 we found that lot several dolphins have been our spectators – they are often playing “in our backyard” and like the area.

Our house design, which we planned ourselves from scratch supported by a very experienced architect, came out very well. The house was based on very elaborate scheme. It is not too ornate or pretentious, but an exclusive upscale custom vacation home overwhelming ourselves and also our customers due to the sophisticated pool / whirlpool design. We offer your superlative family vacation home!

We offer on the oversized premises of more than 12,939 sq. ft. an outstanding vacation home of approx. 3,069 sq. ft. under air featuring 4 suites all located ground floor. Suite Antigua and Suite Barbados are both similar in size, also regarding the adjacent master bathrooms. The Coca-Cola Suite offers a pool bath and Suite Route 66 is also en-suite von its own bathroom. 3 of the 4 suites are located with direct access to the pool area and each bedroom is equipped with king-size beds. Suite Route 66 offers 2 extra long XL twin beds, which we can convert for you to a king-size bed as well. Big flat-screen-TVs –60” Sony HDTV in the king-size suites and a 46” Samsung in Suite Route 66, are all connected via cable and have internet access. The Caribbean Island Dolphin View is superlative family destination and offers a 5-zone A/C, i.e. each and every suite and also the living area can be individually be controlled.

The house was built with ICF blocks (ICF=INSULATING CONCRETE FORM), which gives greater comfort due to stable temperature throughout the home.
ICF walls reduce air infiltration by 75%: The effects of hay fever, asthma, and other airborne allergies can be greatly alleviated. The house is quieter.
ICF walls allow less than one-third as much sound to pass through than regular frame walls. A house built with ICF block is considered to be earthquake, tornado and hurricane resistant. A study of Texas Tech University proves that wall built with Insulating Concrete Forms withstand the damage and projectiles launched by tornado or hurricane strength winds

Pool, Sundeck and Lanai

A daydream in blue – The Caribbean Island Dolphin View offers a unique pool- and sundeck on a length of 82 ft 4“ and the infinity edge pool including a disappearing edge whirlpool of a total length of about 54 ft. A sun shelf of the size of approx. 18 ft / 5.50m width and 6 ft / 1.80 m length and a shallow water of 6” / 15 cm offers plenty of space to splash, play and relax. There are hurricane-proof shutters, which offer you the opportunity to protect the lanai on windy or cooler days and also from the sun. You are able to look to the outside but not from the outside to the inside and grant you privacy. The pool area spreads out on 2 levels. On the upper level there is the pool and spa and sundeck and as well an outside shower next to the entrance to the pool bath. On the lower level there is a walkway along the silent waterfall. At one end of the walkway there is a fire pit and a nice group of chairs and a love seat with a cocktail table, where you may relax and enjoy the nice warm air. From this level you get over a pavered walkway down to the captain’s walk and to the boat dock.

Important features on 1 view

  • Roomy pool area (approximately 2,154 sq. ft./ 200 qm) on 2 levels with Infinity pool / infinity spa with a very good view above the canals and surroundings as the evaluation of the lot was especially increased when the house was built, just to be able to get such an incredible view
  • Infinity pool / infinity spa in an eye-catching Caribbean blue and sundeck on a total length of approx. 54 ft / 16.5 m, pool and spa with electrically heat pumps

The shutters protect the area in case of hurricanes, but also against sun, and wind and if there are cooler days you still are able to sit outside. There is no need to put all outside furniture into the house, just on the lanai - protected from the shutters in case of any storms or hurricanes.
  • The Baby-Barrier Fence also divides the lanai from the pool area, to avoid that little children are able to access the pool
  • Outside loudspeakers: 2 in the ceiling of the lanai, 1 close to the spa, 1 on the right side of the sun deck, 1 on the lower level deck close to the chairs, 1 at the Tiki Hut, can be individually controlled – you are able to hear different audio sources inside and outside

  • Weber BBQ gas grill
  • On the lower area of the pool deck is a cozy area to sit and relax: 1 "Loveseat”, 2 seats and a cocktail table and a fire pit
  • High quality colorful pavers in the entire pool area

Boat Dock, Tiki Hut and Captain’s Walk

There is a pavered walkway from the lower pool area to the 103.5 ft. long captain’s walk and to the big boat dock of a length of approx. 65 ft / 20m, where you may moor a boat of up to 80 ft. The huge front part of the dock is ideal to catch the sun and there is also a nice tiki hut to relax. Enjoy the sunsets with an ice cold Coca-Cola or another good beverage and watch the dolphins or fishes play. In front of the boat lift is a little observation deck to watch the fishes at night when the fish light is active and attracts the fishes.

 

Boat Riding Times from our Caribbean Island Houses Caribbean Island Supreme Deluxe, Caribbean Island Grand Deluxe and Caribbean Island Dolphin View

Living Area

Great room, kitchen, dining room and game / poker room belong to the open style living area. The tasteful rooms are matching perfectly regarding furniture and colors. We paid attention to the fact that we wanted to have the best view possible from this area to the pool and canal.

In the entertainment center - which we also designed - you find a 70” Sony flat-screen TV cable-TV, with 3D and internet access, a home cinema, router, telephone, CD und blue-ray player.

    1. Contracting Parties
      The rental agreement (consisting of agreement and confirmation showing the rental period) is concluded between the guest/renter who is min. 25 years of age and the owners of the abovementioned houses Heidi Strohschein and Juergen Kroeger. The agreement is valid with one signature of the owners on the agreement. The contract is about the vacation house as shown and described on the websites. Any exemptions to the terms and conditions must be approved in writing in advance. Should the owner privately use closets or garages and it is not mentioned on the website the renter is not entitled to claim a refund of rent. Boats or other vehicles shown on pictures do never automatically belong to the house rental contract. Boats may be rented individually through the intermediaries Heidi Strohschein and Juergen Kroeger, house and boat rental contracts are not connected to each other. It might be the case the owner uses a part of the garage for a car or storage. There is no guarantee that the renter’s car fits into the garage. Most houses have a privately used and locked closet and garage. This is known and accepted by the renter.

     

    1. Rental Agreement / Rental Rates
      The rental agreement may be sent by e-mail or fax. Confirmed and signed rental agreements are required for any rental agreement and reservation to be valid. Any rental agreement is independent and not connected with any other contracts like flight tickets or travel insurances. The address of the vacation house is mentioned on the top of the contract. The renter is obliged to double check the rental address which is also clearly stated on the website and the rental rates before signing the contract which shows the address on top of the rental contract to make sure he rents the house he wants to rent. The renter has to avoid any misunderstandings possible due to the similar names and addresses of the houses. Rental rates shown on a rental agreement are binding. Changes have to be made if a pricing error is obvious and unmistakable and could have reasonably been recognized as a mispricing or calculation error. Further reasons for changing the contracts are adding additional guests or if new taxes, government or cleaning fees etc. are valid for the time booked. Prices are liable to change at any time, but rental rates changes will not affect agreements in respect of which we have already signed as a confirmation. The boat dock on the premises may be used if the owner will be informed upfront about the boat rental company whose boat will be moored or if you bring your own boat. The boat lift does not belong to the rental contract and may be used if you rent a boat over the owner with Cape Escape Boat Rental, L.L.C.. A writing confirmation of the owner has to be made in such cases before the arrival date.

     

    1. Security Deposit
      The security deposit is a refundable amount established as a safeguard against property damage. The security deposit funds may be applied for supplemental cleaning if the property manager determines that you did not leave the property neat and tidy, and in broom clean condition for the housekeeping staff. Security deposit is not meant to be to deduct any electric fees. Security deposit will be refunded within approximately 1-6 weeks of the departure date by check to guests from the US and Canada and by transfer to European guests. The renter makes sure the correct full address including zip code is supplied for the rental contract to avoid any problems sending the deposit back by mail. European guests please provide the IBAN number and the exact name of the owner of the account. Should a security deposit have been reimbursed unconditionally it does not rule out the option of asserting damage.

     

    1. Payments
      In order to reserve this rental property for the renter the owner must receive the signed agreement. The renter arranges the down payment mentioned in the contract within 1 week of initial reservation. Both the deposit and the payment of the balance including security deposit due will be paid 6 weeks ahead of arrival. Late reservations (confirmed within 6 weeks of the planned arrival date) will require payment in full. Payments are not accepted on arrival. The owners have the right to cancel the contract if payments are late. Failure to pay balance when due will result in cancelation of reservation and loss of deposit. You will still be liable for the balance due. The renter will accordingly be responsible for any consequences. The owners are entitled to cancel the contract if the renter does not make the payments according to the contract.

     

    1. Extra Charges
