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!!

Dolphin Inn, Southern Shores, NC

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been more pleased with our stay at the Dolphin Inn. The owners were terrific to work with. The house is fantastic.

The kitchen is fully stocked and opens to a large dinette area which accommodated our family. The bedrooms were all spacious and having

all the baths was a big plus. The backyard swimming pool was great and so refreshing. It is a short walk to the ocean, which we all

enjoyed. The waves were very high and the kids loved it. The location of the home is perfect and is just a short distance to Duck

with tons of shopping & restaurants. We rented bikes and rode them to Duck which was fun. The week went by far too quickly with

so much to do. The kids loved the sand dunes and we also went to see the wild horses. All in all, a super great vacation. I am

recommending the Dolphin Inn to all my friends.

Perfect Family Vacation House

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful stay at the Dolphin Inn with my extended family, 14 of us, youngest was 10. Short walk from the house to a beautiful quiet family beach, there was some traffic on road to cross but the cars stopped to let us by. Location in Southern Shores was perfect, easy access when arriving/leaving.. close to Duck for shopping/activities like paddle-boarding, parasailing, centrally located to either head down to Nags Head or up to Corolla. The house setup was perfect for our 4 families with 4 masters and 3 bedrooms downstairs for the kids, large kitchen table to fit all of us, tv's everywhere, two fridges, pool, hot tub, volleyball etc. Owner is extremely organized with directions for everything you can think of and labels everywhere to find everything. House also has many amenities like golf membership, club membership, tennis etc. Had everything we needed! We made lots of great memories at the Dolphin Inn!

Perfect Multi-Family Rental

  • 5 of 5

This rental has it all! We wanted an affordable family friendly rental - and this is it! With 7 bedrooms (4 masters) and 3 kids rooms our group fit perfectly in this home. The layout is ideal for groups. The owners have spared no expense with on site amenities as well as off-site clubs/attractions. This is not a house, it is a home - and the owners take special pride in this rental. From the communication prior to arrival, to the immediate availability of maintenance (should it be required) - these owners WANT their guests to LOVE the home as much as they do. This home is located a block and a half from the ocean. I was apprehensive about the distance, but it was an easy walk even with our 3 year old - and the house has plenty of wagons to transport all your beach items. In fact, this house was so well appointed, when we return (and we will) we will bring about 1/2 of the luggage. Clothing, shoes, toiletries and beach towels are really all you need - everything else is provided. The pool was very clean and was a welcome cool down spot for everyone. The description of the property (written by the owners) is totally accurate - the property will exceed your expectations as will the customer service. Highly recommend!

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.
