    About this property

    Gated Dolphin Ridge Luxury~this Home is Absolutely Stunning!

    In musical terms, 'adagio' refers to a slow, graceful, and leisurely tempo. This showplace exudes tranquility and serenity and serves as the ideal family retreat! Reconnect, recharge, and rejoice at Adagio! Nestled in the upscale and gated Dolphin Ridge community, Adagio in Sea provides travelers with southern tropical elegance, timeless charm, and modern conveniences in this 7 bedroom, 5.5 bath well-appointed and stylishly decorated PET FRIENDLY beach home. The ocean views from the top floor of Adagio glisten through the prolific windows of the open living/dining/kitchen floor plan. Lovingly renovated by the owners, of whom one is a professional interior designer, the living area boasts 10 full size recliners and a nooked bench seat. Gather around the 55 inch Smart TV with sound bar in the living room or watch a game of pool played across the room on the magnificent Oldhausen pool table. There's plenty of room as red leather bench seats hug two walls of the pool table and kitchen areas. The dining area graciously hosts three separate dining tables, a large rectangular table that seats 8 comfortably, a charming table of four, and an elevated bistro table for 4 at the bar. And the kitchen~~my goodness! The kitchen provides everything you could possibly desire to cook, prepare, and serve a gourmet feast. This well appointed kitchen is delightfully equipped with two dishwashers, two refrigerators, 2 coffee pots, and all the necessary appliances and utensils. The laundry room is perfectly situated off of the kitchen and features the aforementioned bonus refrigerator and stacked washer/dryer. A half-bath is located off of the dramatic top floor staircase. Two bedrooms, a playful children's room with twin trundle beds, and an impressive grand master suite with direct deck access complete the inside of the top level's floor plan. The middle level of Adagio boasts the majority of the home's bedrooms, all exquisitely decorated in a vibrant kaleidoscope of majestic colors. Two of the four king bedrooms are highlighted with direct ocean deck access. Three of these four king bedrooms are en suite (be sure to check out the gorgeous picture of that illustrious tiled bronze and pumpkin bathroom!) The remaining king bedroom shares a hall bathroom with the queen bed/twin sleeper/sofa chair bedroom. Splendor, rhythm, and sophistication afford each bedroom its own character and every bedroom features a flat screen hi-definition, Bluetooth-compatible TV with Blu-Ray DVD player. Yes, in every bedroom!! For early risers, a second floor coffee station will start your morning as you slip outside to watch the sun peak over the water. Positioned perfectly on the bottom floor of Adagio is a quiet, 'get-away from it all' crash pad for children of all ages! This bonus/media room features the same premier TV system as in the living area so snuggle into the comfortable king-sized davenport and catch up on your favorite programs and movies! Don't forget your popcorn and drink! The third refrigerator is located right outside the media room~easy access for guests using the pool/hut tub/media room.....and there's a microwave in the media room to boot! The bottom floor opens directly to the six person hot tub and refreshing swimming pool. The enclosed lawn around the pool sports a delightful lounging area~just add sunshine! Upon entering from the bottom floor, guests will find immediate elevator access for ease in traversing the remaining floors of Adagio. There's nothing more delightful than strolling down your own private walkway to that endless blue sea! A double benched landing affords guests the most panoramic of views. Adagio abounds with plentiful deck seating on both decks as well. You'll want to watch the sun rise and set off of the two spacious decks stocked with rocking chairs, lounges, and picnic table. The owners provide beach chairs and beach towels for guests' use. Parking is never a concern as the driveway will comfortably allow up to seven vehicles. As the owners are fellow dog lovers and owners, they understand the importance of bringing your dog on vacation. Adagio is pet friendly! Please understand a non-refundable pet fee will be charged per dog. PLEASE NOTE: Adagio rents on a SATURDAY TO SATURDAY basis. ABSOLUTELY NO SMOKING!

    Beautiful, well equipped beach house!

    Adagio was a beautiful, clean, well maintained and equipped house. Comfortable beds, so nice to have the linens provided and beds made on arrival. Shannon and Brian were wonderful to work with, even called to check on our family after some beach rescues had taken place in rip currents. Great location on the south end of the island, shops, grocery stores, and restaurants nearby.

    5/5 Excellent

    Nice place for a getaway

    Stayed for a week with four friends. Very nice house, clean, well maintained. The elevator came in handy for suitcases and for two ladies with stair issues. The beach was beautiful and was not crowded. I enjoyed my sunrise walks with a mug of coffee. Nice ocean views from the decks. Great place.

    5/5 Excellent

    Vacation to remember

    Outstanding property. Great location with excellent beach access. We filled the house with family and it was still very quiet throughout. Plenty of space for everyone to do their thing. I even set up a small recording studio in the media room. The April ocean was warm enough for some of us. Kitchen is well stocked and we had a brand new grill outside. Excellent support from the management team for the duration of our stay. I'm looking forward to our return.

    5/5 Excellent
