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!!

Wonderful

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay at the Dolphin Inn.

We had a large family of 14 and there was plenty of room. The pool was delightful.

It is but a short walk to the beach ,even with small children

Most important, Jorge, the owner, was attentive to our every need.

I highly recommend the Dolphin Inn for you family vacation.

Gracious Host at Well Prepared Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 11 (children and grandchildren) enjoyed at wonderful time at Jorge and Susannah's home at a perfect Southern Shores location. Daily we reached the beach after a 1 1/2 block walk which was most convenient. The beach was perfect and the Tommy Bahama chairs that the Dolphin Inn provided were a great addition to our stay. Each room was perfectly prepared, clean and well appointed. Our family ranged in age from 17 months to 70+. The pool was a delightful, well maintained/clean place to enjoy the young children. The sand volley ball court and children's captain ship were welcome amenities. (Our 17 month old grandson mastered the steps up to the main boat deck and went down the slide multiple times. Yes, this was the first time he had done something such as this ) Oh, yes the big guys took advantage of the Dophin Inn's membership to Kilmarlic Golf Club. This is a well maintained, very beautiful course about 10 minutes from the Dolphin Inn. I highly recommend this course. For our dinners each family took a day and prepared the evening meal. The kitchen is fully featured with dishes/tableware/cooking gear, etc. etc. You can imagine that the two refrigerators were filled; the second refrigerator was a welcome feature. The most important feature of the Dolphin Inn was our host. Jorge provided additional emailed information about our upcoming visit which was most useful for a first time visitor to the Outer Banks. After our arrival he phoned to see if everything was OK and if we had any questions. Later in the week, he called again. This contact and the friendly, professional effort was the best of any experience we have enjoyed. The owners truly care for their home and most importantly, their guests! If you stay at the Dolphin Inn, you will definitely want to come again.

Outstanding

  • 5 of 5

The Dolphin Inn was great. We had our 40 anniversary family event and it couldn't have been better. Everything is exactly as it was pictured and

advertised to be. None of us had been to the outer banks before and we all definitely want to go back and that's not only because we fell in love with

Duck, NC but also because to accommodations were outstanding.

Beautiful place! Perfect for a large family!

  • 5 of 5

Our family just returned from a wonderful vacation at the Dolphin Inn. This was our first experience of the Outer Banks, and this house made a great first impression on us. We had a large family of 18 people stay (5 separate families) and the layout was perfect for all of us to be together or take a break in our own space. Jorge was very friendly right from the beginning and so very helpful with everything. The house is organized and labeled amazingly, making us feel right at home with no questions on how anything works. The beach was a quick walk and it was quiet, some days feeling like it was our very own beach. We would highly recommend this house and location for any size family. We created memories here that we will never forget!
