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!!

A Wonderful Thanksgivin

  • 5 of 5

Our family decided to spend Thanksgiving together in 2016 for several reasons. My husband had been diagnosed with cancer in August and had just completed six weeks of radiation and chemotherapy. We hadn't spent the holiday together in a number of years. We love the beach. Yet the whipped cream on the pumpkin pie was finding out we were going the grandparents again in April. We have two granddaughters, 14 and 17, and now our little 6 year old grandson will soon be a big brother. The house was a wonderful place to spend time with each other. It was spacious with a huge table for eating, playing games and did I say eating? The family room was comfortable for watching TV. All of the bedrooms were great. Beds not only provided a great sleep but decorated in wonderful beachy linens. Our grandchildren enjoyed the second family room on the first floor where they slept on a variety of bunk beds. Our grandson was in heaven with so many choices. The owners were so gracious when I called about something very simple and I thank them for making our Thanksgiving gathering so much fun. By the way, my husband is still fighting his cancer. Going to the beach was something for him to look forward to after radiation. Now he has a new grandchild to look forward to in April. We need to keep goals for him to stay with us. God bless you.

Family trip was fun

  • 5 of 5

We had so much fun on a family trip in Oct. We have rented placed before and one of the gripes I always had was the cleanliness. This place was very clean which was an immediate plus. You feel very at home when you get here and it had everything you need to just settle right in. Movies galore and games - funny how you have more family fun when this is right at your finger tips. Pool and hot tub were the kids fave and also the adults. And there was nothing like sitting on the balcony having morning coffee. Jorge & Susannah checked in to make sure everything was in order and that we were having a good time. I know our family looks forward to getting back here in the future.

Lots of summer fun at the Dolphin Inn

  • 5 of 5

We rented the Dolphin Inn on the HOTTEST week in the OBX this year. When we arrived at the house were grateful for the proximity to the beach and also the and inviting layout. We had a routine of getting up for a run on the beach at 6 AM, coming back to make an incredible breakfast with their well stocked kitchen for our friends. An added bonus was that our friends were not earlier risers but the multiple levels of the house allowed them to sleep like babies until the aroma of coffee and waffles awakened them. Breakfast was followed by a dip in the pool at the house and heading over to the beach before lunch. We were 1.5 blocks from the beach and it was super easy to get back and forth. We loved the beach items provided at the house, it made our packing less stressful and the Dolphin Inn had everything we needed. Having the pool on site was a godsend, as were the various games and movies.. the heat was sometimes unbearable at the beach so we had PLENTY to do at the house. The location of the house also makes it easy to go see the sights of OBX, we were especially impressed with the biking trails and ease to get to grocery stores and Duck Donuts! The children happily played games in the pool, completed puzzles and started a bumper pool and Wii tournament and bracket. The owners called us no less than three times to let us know the house was ready early, to make sure we had everything we needed and also to follow up on our overall experience. I would recommend this house to families looking for a great vacation or to friends looking for a meet up for a reunion.

Really nice location. Close to the beach access and restaurants. Nice backyard for kids. I would absolurecimend this for repeat trips. Also, the owners are very conscientious and have thought of all the amenities. They can be reached to assist with any questions or concerns. Good people. Good house. Great vacation.
