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!!

Perfect vacation spot for a (large) family gathering

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a fantastic week together with family (siblings and spouses and a few extras mixed in). The Dolphin Inn was the perfect spot for our reunion. It is well located and easy to find. There are so many things to do in the area... something for everyone. But the biggest bonus of staying at the Dolphin Inn is the great care that Jorge and Susannah take to insure that you have a wonderful stay. There are books they compiled with information on the area and its great history as well as thorough information about everything you need to know to enjoy your stay at the Dolphin Inn. The house is large and comfortable inside and out; there is plenty of space to be together and great privacy in the bedrooms, if that's what you need. We had an absolutely marvelous time... couldn't have been more perfect!

Wonderful resort like home with the ideal location!

  • 5 of 5

The Dolphin Inn is a wonderful home away from home. It is roomy, well maintained and offers a great floor plan. The sleeping accommodations were ideal for our three families visiting from all different points in the U.S. The main living room, kitchen and dining area were great meeting spots for meals and entertainment. The kitchen was well stocked and easy to work in. Morning and afternoon walks to the beach were causal and just a few minutes away. The Inn is close to a variety of activities in the OBX area. We went on a day trip to visit lighthouses, on a "wild horse" tour and saw the lighted kite celebration in Kitty Hawk. There are many specialty restaurants worth visiting. You are also minutes from familiar brand grocery stores, coffee shops and fast food restaurants. Traffic was very light for a holiday week. Jorge went out of his way to communicate prior to our vacation and during our stay. He was genuinely interested in meeting our needs and ensuring we had a pleasant stay. The Dolphin Inn is a vacation location you will want to add to your frequent trip list.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time at the Dolphin Inn. The home has everything you could ask for in a rental-neat, clean, more than enough space, pet friendly, pool, fully stock kitchen, etc. Went for earlier morning walks on the beach and saw the dolphins swimming. Jorge was very responsive to the few questions we had and takes great pride in making sure you have a fabulous time. I highly recommend the Dolphin Inn!

The house had everything!!

  • 5 of 5

This house really lived up to the reviews. We had three families staying in the house and had plenty of room. The house was very clean and came stocked with so many things you may need. I brought my own stroller and ended up using their jogging stroller every day because I like it even better than my own one. The house is just a short walk to the beach and we loved getting to see the Dolphins swimming in the water. We also went to the beach at night to see all the sand crabs running around which was a really cool experience. The pool was a huge hit with all of us. It was great to have that as an option if we didn't feel like going to the beach. We all loved the location of the house. It's very close to the bridge and to things like supermarkets and restaurants but yet you are away from the hustle and bustle. The best part of this experience was dealing with the owners. Jorge was great at communicating and answering any of my questions. We are already talking about when we can go back.

Loved it!!!

  • 5 of 5

The Dolphin Inn was a great place to gather our family of 15. The pool was a great asset for July! We could cool off without having to go very far! There is plenty of space for 4 families with kids. The house couldn't have more amenities! The beach was great... went every day to swim! Watched dolphins and pelicans play and feed most days. A fisherman pulled in a 7-foot shark. We went into the water when dolphins were not near us... and felt safe from sharks. Water was clear and warm! Evenings, we found the kids making their own popcorn in the downstairs microwave and watching a movie while the adults were similarly occupied upstairs. Plenty of choices for everyone! Though we thought we do more sightseeing, it was just great to hang at the house and beach. Plenty of relaxing family time! Jorge was always available for questions... very prompt replies ALWAYS!
