Reviewer Comments:

The OBX is always a beautiful time and if you get this house for $199/night, you can't complain. However, we paid $500/night and for that, we expected a little more. It's a 8 min walk to the beach, the pool & hot tub are great. Kitchen was fully stocked with cooking necessities. We were worried that the fridge was very warm when we arrived & had just did a weeks worth of shopping. When we called to inquire, the response was that they had no control over the temp of the fridge- however, the woman that checked us in was kind. The previous reviews about the house being dusty have not been corrected, the fans are full of cobwebs. Dryer takes 4 hours to dry a load of clothes, a man did come out to fix the washer. The deck has a ton of nails that need to be hammered back down because little feet do get hurt. Pet urine on the red couch off of the kitchen. :/ I think if someone took the time to go to the property & correct the issues and update the home- it would be a great place. If the issues were fixed, I'd def recommend to a friend.

Reviewer Comments:

Our family enjoyed staying at Dolphin Splash very much. It was spacious, accommodating for a family gathering. We had 9 people there comfortably. The pool was nice, air conditioning worked well during a very hot, humid week. The beach was a little farther away than anticipated.

We had a lot of fun. But the deck has nails protruding that are very DANGEROUS. Broken glass in the outdoor shower we had to clean up and one toilet wasn't cleaned.

Reviewer Comments:

The house is in a great location and in decent shape for being a pet friendly home. However, this house is in need of a lot of TLC. If I had to guess, this house is owned by the realty company vs. a family (lack of warmth/personality in the decor). The screened in doors were missing/broken, there was clear broken glass all over the outdoor shower area, decor on the walls was broken, one of the glass windows upstairs has a large crack, there were no oven mits, but the most concerning issue was the deck. The nails on the deck are so warped that several family members cut their feet. Also, not a major issue, but there are only TV's In two of the five bedrooms. I think with a little attention to detail this would be a fantastic rental!! It was conveniently located near two grocery stores, shopping, and other attractions.

Reviewer Comments:

Overall, our vacation was okay. The weather, unfortunately was not the best which I know is out of the hands of man but led to a very worry-some vacation (end of August - 3 tropical storms and a Hurricane). This was our 3rd year staying at this property and the house is definitely in need of repair. My husband went to close the sliding door and the handle broke right off into his hand...we laughed but it was unfortunate because the house has such potential. The dishwasher was leaking all over the kitchen floor, the men in our group tried fixing it, as best they could. All lamps in the kids room had no light bulbs and the mattress on the bottom of the bunk beds is actually a thin cot not a mattress. A crack in the upstairs window remained (present for 3yrs now). There were also visible nails sticking out of the deck which made us all nervous with the kids walking around barefoot. We always enjoy our time in Corolla and of course make the best of our stays however, some updates to this property are REALLY required at this point. If updated, I would definitely return and also recommend to others. However, as of now, we plan to look at other houses if we return next year.

Owner's Response: It's unfortunate your vacation was affected by the series of bad weather we experienced during that time on the OBX. We do hope your next visit will be filled with sunshine. We encourage all of our guests to report maintenance issues directly to us so we may coordinate repairs. Had we been made aware of these issues at that time, we may have been able to resolve them. We would love to have you back for a fourth year. Thank you for the feedback.

Reviewer Comments:

After spending almost 2 hours cleaning before being able to move in, our visit was actually pleasant and enjoyable. The house itself worked great for our family and having the pool and hot tub were a great addition. Some of the kitchen applicances will soon need replacing, but all were useable. The cleaning crew needs to be more thorough in preparing the house between renters! Despite the lack of cleaning...we would rent this house again!

Owner's Response: We apologize for the unsatisfactory cleaning. Had we been made aware, we would have had housekeeping correct the oversights. In the future please contact your check-in office as soon as possible so we may rectify. Despite the cleaning issues I am glad to hear your family enjoyed Dolphin's Splash and we would love to see you return.
