Guestbook Comment

  • 5 of 5

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!!

DolFUN Inn!

  • 5 of 5

Our families enjoyed our stay at the Dolphin Inn. We took advantage of everything the house had to offer, especially the playground and pool, as we had 4 under 4 with our crew! Thanks so much!

What a glorious vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful beach house could not have been more perfect for our long-awaited family vacation! It accommodated 16 adults, children, and babies beautifully. The swimming pool, hot tub, and sand volleyball court provided hours of "in house" entertainment, as well as the very short walk to the beach every day. The pirate ship play area was also a novelty. We had many meals at the large dining area table, as well. The owner, who was at the property when we arrived, doing some minor maintenance work, could not have been more helpful and gracious. The house was very clean, well kept, and in close proximity to so much, yet very private as well. If I could give this vacation spot 100 stars, I would!! We can't wait to go back :-)

The Dolphin Inn; a Perfect vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

TThe Dolphin Inn was perfect for my family. All accommodations were met. We were surprised to find things in the home such as fist aid kits, spices and condiments, a baby tub and highchair (which was a miracle since my grandson vacationed with the family), gym facility in the neighborhood, and so much more.

The lower level was great for the kids to enjoy their time away with all the noises being isolated, as the adult/master suites were located on the 2 upper levels. They played games and watched movies all night well into the early morning. In addition to the gaming system they brought along, we all utilized the Wii-U system that was provided in the home, along with games for all family members to enjoy. Also, the pool was a splendid amenity. The children stayed in the pool throughout the day. So much time, they were all sunburned.

One of the days there it rained cats and dogs. Luckily, there was a library of movies and books to enjoy. Afterward, we played board games that were provided in the home. The only one that we didn’t see was UNO. So we went to the Walmart and purchased a set of cards which we left behind for the next family to use.

The home was clean and well organized. I couldn’t think of a better place to choose to spend your vacation in OBX, NC.

Last but not least, the owner stayed in constant contact with us during our planning, the month of, the week of, during the week while at the home and when we returned; ensuring we made it home safely. I highly recommend the Dolphin Inn for your rental property. You will not be disappointed.

Dolphin Inn stay

  • 5 of 5

One of the most relaxing and enjoyable vacations we have ever taken. The accommodations at the Dolphin Inn in Southern Shores, North Carolina were fantastic. We had a large group of 17 stay and everyone was very comfortable. What a magnificent rental property. When we were not at the beach (which was rare) we were in the pool at the rental property. Everything you could ask for or want was supplied. There were shelves of DVD's, a small library, toys for kids,a volleyball court, playhouse for children, and deck balconies for everyone. Rooms were so clean and comfortable, and the air conditioning felt so nice on those hot July days. Our hats off to the owners for making everything to welcoming. Many shopping opportunities were close by. Attractions were close as well. Don't forget to go to Jockey's Ridge State Park to see the largest sand dune on the east coast. The only thing I can suggest is that if you go back over the bridge to do anything try to combine it with other attractions or shopping because the trip over the bridge is $8.00. We are up in age but would certainly consider this for our first choice if we were ever returning.
