My family and I stayed at The Dolphin Inn during September. Coming from all over Virginia it was important for us to find a home away from home and that is exactly what we found as it had countless amenities and extras. We have been staying in the Outer Banks for many years in many nice places, but this is the last place we will stay- We loved it!!

Fantastic Place to stay in OBX

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at the Dolphin Inn this past week and I have nothing but great things to say about it. The owners are incredibly response, helpful, and friendly. The Inn itself is beautiful and is full of countless amenities. I highly recommend staying at the Dolphin Inn if you are interested in going to the Outer Banks.

much needed vacation

  • 5 of 5

We have taken family vacations in the past and it has always been all business with the rental agents, but this time it was like our family was renting us their home for the week,the owners were most accomadating , we arrived early on check in day, because we had traveled all night from upstate NY, not a problem with jorge and susanah they let us unload and get settled into rooms that had been cleaned, they were in the process of getting it ready for our stay , but took time to explain some things to do and how to use some of the equipment, which wasnt necessary, because they have all the bases covered instructions step by step in a book and next to every piece of equipment, ...I love to cook and didnt have to worry about needing anything to prepare it was all covered, If we come back to the banks then the dolphinn will be our first choice

A great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family of thirteen and a pup had a wonderful vacation at the Dolphin inn. The owner Jorge was not only nice but very accommodating. The house had everything needed for an enjoyable stay. We even made friends with the next door neighbor who is a year round resident who gave us some tips on good restaurants. An abundance of cd's were available for down time. The young adult as well as the older members of our party enjoyed the spa every night. After we were settled in The owner called to check if the house had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. It was a magical time for our family and we would recommend this property and owner without hesitation. It was everything it was advertised and more.

Perfect in January!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in January. What a fantastic experience. The home was perfect. Despite it being 48 degrees outside we played volleyball and some basketball in the driveway. With the bright sun it felt like 60! The kids had plenty to do. There is a TV in every room with an internet media player to watch Netfix if you are bored. There is a small gaming table on the bottom floor for the kids to play on and a large tv in case you want to bring your xbox or ps4 to plug into. The top floor has a very large library of very good DVDs. We loved the big fireplace on the top floor. Everyone seemed to gather around it at night. It turns on with the push of a button on the wall, very easy. The queen size bedrooms on the second floor were awesome. Just like the rst of the house, they were all very clean/spotless. The balcony views for each were also very nice. The third floor bedroom is also very nice. A really nice balcony view from there as well. Oh yeah, that bedroom has a very nice jetted tub. Whether it's 95 degrees in August or 48 degrees in January, this is a home you want to stay it if you have a large family. Jorge the owner is also one of the nicest people you'll ever speak to in your entire life. He checks on you to make sure your stay is comfortable and reminds you of the discounts you can get.. for example he told us about the bowling pass on the refrigerator which saved us some $$$ the second night we were there. He was ALWAYS accessible if we needed anything. Lets see.. the kitchen had everything you needed.. pots and pans, oven, microwave, you name it. On a scale of 1-10 I would rate our stay a 10.. on a scale of dealing with the owner, on a scale of 1-10 I would give Jorge an 11.
