Wonderful beachhouse for the entire family

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this house - it has everything you need. We had 8 staying here. Plenty of room and well laid out. Kitchen is beautiful and well equipped with plenty of dishes, utensils ... you name it. Bedrooms are all very nice - comfortable beds, nice linens. Beautiful ocean view - Right on the beach (great for little kids - no long walk) - hoses to wash off with. Outdoor shower is great for after a day at the beach (some of us never used the indoor shower). Walking distance to the Bogue Inlet Pier, but it is far enough away from the pier that the crowds the pier attract are not a factor. We had a great time and this was a great house.

Owner's Response: Welcome to the Double Dolphin family! We are so pleased that you also enjoy the house on the ocean and our beautiful Emerald Isle beaches. I hope that you found the town permit that allows our guests to leave their tents on the beach for a week without removing them. Hope to see you next year for another great vacation.

Top notch ocean front property - amazing value!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing views, high-end furniture/electronics/appliances (including WiFi), super convenient beach access - we are coming back! We were impressed from top to bottom in terms of layout, space, and furnishings. We built sand castles every day, visited the NC Aquarium, went out to dinner, ordered pizza, cooked in the spacious kitchen, and had an overall fantastic vacation. The entire family enjoyed themselves (age 2 to 40+) and we made memories to last a lifetime. We had 8 people and used 4 of the 5 bedrooms.....10 would easily fit. Ocean water was warm (in the low to mid 80's) and we stayed in the water for extended periods - great body surfing and boogie boarding. Several of us went fishing and crabbing - from the beach and from the nearby pier. We couldn't have hoped for a better house. Thank you!!!

Owner's Response: What a great review for The Double Dolphin! You certainly captured the fun of vacationing on the ocean with all of your family activities. We loved seeing the pictures of your sand castle village and think it may be the biggest ever built on Emerald Isle. We are so pleased that you beach lovers are returning for another summer visit to our beautiful island.
