“A Dolphin’s Delight' offers fantastic oceanfront views! Our home is right on the ocean with direct views from the kitchen, living area, and master bedroom. Relax on our 60 foot deck. Stairs to the beach are directly off the deck with an enclosed outdoor shower with hot and cold water. If you stay for a week, skip the hassle of making up the beds! Linen service is provided and all beds are professionally made before you arrive. A Dolphin’s Delight features 4 beautiful bedrooms, 2 full baths, a great kitchen, and a huge living and dining area with amazing oceanfront views! Bring your laptop and enjoy 30 Mbps Internet speeds with our secure WiFi and wired Internet access. There is a 47 inch flat screen TV in the living room and all bedrooms have wall-mounted flat screen 32 inch TVs with DVD players and Netflix for relaxing after a fun day in the sun!
The deck runs the entire length of the house on the ocean side where you see the dolphins playing as well as keeping an eye on the beach and ocean. You can enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning and relax on the porch swing while you watch the sun rise. At night, this deck is a perfect place to star-gaze and see the moon when the weather is clear. It is awe inspiring to see a lightning storm far out over the water at night, if it storms then while you are visiting.
In the master bedroom, see the moon over the ocean from your king-sized bed, or watch the flat screen TV, mounted on the wall. Plenty of storage space in the mirrored closet and separate sets of drawers. A bathroom with tiled shower is between the master bedroom and another bedroom at the end of the hall. This bedroom has a double bed and twin bunk beds. It also has a mirrored closet and storage in chests of drawers. This hallway also has a full-sized stackable washer dryer. There are two bedrooms on the other side of the house. The Shell room has a queen bed, with a mirrored closet. Down the hall from the second bathroom is the Lighthouse room, which has a queen bed and another set of twin bunk beds. We can provide a Dream-on-Me 40 inch crib and a Graco high chair at no charge. Just let us know you need it and it will be available when you arrive. All bedrooms have 32 inch flat screen televisions, a dvd player and Netflix.
The kitchen has Corian counter tops, a big refrigerator and stove with microwave above. It is stocked with the pots and pans and things you will need to cook meals when you aren’t sampling the great restaurants on Topsail Island. You can eat your meals with spectacular views of the ocean, at our table that seats 8 to 10 people or at kitchen bar that seats 4 people, or wander out onto the deck. Also available is a built in charcoal grill located at the bottom of the stairs. Under the house is covered parking for up to 6 cars.
The living room has a sofa, loveseat, recliner and another comfortable chair. A 47 inch flat screen TV with HD cable and Netflix. Stunning views of the ocean can be seen from every angle in the kitchen-dining-living area of our home.

There are lots of things to do on Topsail Island, from kayaking, fishing, para-sailing, and golfing to mention a few. The North Shore Golf and Ocean Club is in Snead’s Ferry to the north of the island less than a half hour away! There is a bike lane across the street that goes north towards Surf City, and south towards the end of the island. There are many great places to eat for breakfast, lunch and supper and fresh seafood markets on the island too. Several antique and consignment shops are close by, across the bridge as well as numerous gift shops and of course beach shops like Wings and Bert’s Surf Shop.
The classic beach town and a great beach house with incredible views and amenities are a perfect combination for your next vacation!
'A Dolphin's Delight' will DELIGHT your family and friends!
My husband and I were visiting Topsail Island for the first time and this house was just what we were hoping for. Well kept, clean property, comfortable furnishings and nice, bright beachy décor. Loved that the ocean was always right there, whether sitting in the living room or out on the deck, the view was terrific! The proximity to the ocean made it convenient for surf fishing and walks on the beach. We saw shrimp boats come down the coast and all the activity that accompanies them as well as dolphins frolicking in the surf on several days. The one-story floor plan suited us perfectly as our old joints don't take to stairs as easily as they used to. We only have two suggestions to make for a totally perfect stay: higher Adirondack style chairs to give you a clear view of the ocean over the deck railing and a hot tub to relax in and take in the clear night skies over the ocean. Hope to return soon!
To be honest, our experiences regarding beach rentals before has not been very good. Something seems to happen between when the photos posted online and our arrival....perhaps years have gone by? At any rate we have never actually rented a place that actually looked like it did as posted online, until NOW!! This place is AWESOME and looks exactly as it does online! The location is fabulous! It is right in the beach and the sunrises are to die for! I simply cannot sing the praises loud enough about this cottage! The owners are great to work with, the cottage is awesome & the beach is gorgeous! I think we have found our place.
We just arrived home from a great week at the beach. This house was perfect for our family - you can't get much closer to the beach! The grandkids loved the soft sandy beach, and we loved the warm outdoor shower to clean the sand off of them! The views were amazing from the family room and kitchen - huge windows and doors. The very large deck offered space for everyone, and when the dolphins were swimming by, we all were able to see them well. We saw dolphins every day! The house is clean, comfortable, and well equipped, and the beds were perfect! The keyless entry was great - some of our party arrived late at night, and they were able to let themselves in without disturbing us, using our password. Aside from all of the wonderful amenities, the owners were amazing to work with. I cannot say enough about them. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Danny and Sandra! We will be back next year!
Great rental! The house was great, well appointed with more amenities than listed. Truly appreciated the baby crib and high chair. The beach was very clean and spacious, home was in excellent shape. Danny was quick to respond to Email prior to our arrival and the fact that we didn't have to stop and pick up keys to access the home was a first for us. We loved our stay and hope to reserve again!
This was our 8th summer vacation on Topsail Island: this is the best house we've ever rented. We were there for 2 weeks. Right on the beach with beautiful views ( we saw dolphins almost every day). Well-equipped, spotlessly clean, everything in working order. Good kitchen set-up, nice charcoal grill right outside, great tv system and lots of dvd's. Owner was easy to work with. I'd recommend this place to anyone.
This was a family vacation for my husband's side of the family. We selected Topsail Beach, as they are all originally from Wilmington. Some still live locally and some not, so the location was perfect for all!! None of them were able to actually recall the last time that they were all together. We had rain the first three days, but A Dolphin's Delight had so many options to keep the family of all ages entertained. The ages of our party ranged from 7-73 years old and an amazing time was had by all! The house looked exactly as the pictures posted online and exceeded all of our expectations! We cooked in all of our meals and the kitchen was well stocked that all we needed to purchase was the food. It was as if we were home in our own kitchens. You can tell that the owners genuinely care about the property, as the upkeep and continuous improvements are very noticeable. We thoroughly enjoyed our week long vacation and have already talked about doing this again next year. We would definitely recommend this property to anyone. Thank you A Dolphin's Delight for an AWESOME Family Vacation!!
