great location and lovely beach

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Dolphin Reach. The house was the perfect size for our family of 2 adults & 3 children. The main living area was light filled and comfortable. We all shared the top upstairs bedroom for lounging, playing cards and views of the ocean, including balcony sitting for morning coffee and evening drinks. The top balcony was a great spot for hearing the waves and shore birds while sitting in the shade. The small kitchen was remarkable efficient for preparing simple meals and cleaning up, with everything in reach. If you want to do any serious cooking, just bring a couple sharp knives. But we managed to prepare all our meals in, and enjoyed dining outdoors on the deck. Beds were comfortable all around and our kids enjoyed having the ground floor sleeping and living areas mostly to themselves. The outdoor private shower was great and we made use of it daily. A plus to have a washer & dryer on site. The walk to the beach was super short on a nice sandy path, and the beach area relatively wide and uncrowded and a good spot for lounging, games, walks and enjoying the waves. We appreciated the proximity to the beach and quiet neighborhood.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We are staying at Dolphin Reach as I write this review. Perfect! Amazingly clean and has everything you could want. Room to spread out and have three separate families stay comfortably. Very short walk to the beach and the beach is beautiful with tide pools for the kids!

I have rented places before that I felt like I had to clean when I got there, or the furniture was dirty and I didn't even want to sit on it, but not at here.

Owners have kept in touch too, even letting us know that we were able to arrive early because it was clean and ready to go!

Thanks Zeb Cummings - a class act.

Thanks for everything!

Sisters at the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Dolphin Reach may appear small from the outside, but it is large on the inside! The loft area is like a "treehouse" with a view of the ocean including the sunrise, a sitting area, and a private balcony. We love the outside shower with hot and cold water! The beach is just across the street and over the dunes in a quiet family area. The paved trail is perfect for walks, runs, or biking. Shopping for supplies is just a short drive away! Our families love staying here and look forward to returning!

Great Family Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at Dolphin Reach! We have never rented directly from an owner before but it was so easy and convenient. Zeb was an absolute pleasure to talk to. He answered every question we had prior to arriving in Emerald Isle for the first time. The home was very well kept and in a perfect location. It was great having the loft bedroom and the separate area downstairs as well for all of the kids to hang out. The kids and my husband had the best time fishing from the giant pier on the sound side - every single morning AND evening! I enjoyed my morning walks to the pier searching for shells and shark teeth. We didn't explore the area too much but we did visit the Go Kart track and the kids had a blast (although it was pricey!!) We would definitely return to Dolphin Reach for another family vacation.

Great Week at Dolphin Reach

  • 5 of 5

Place was spotless, the small kitchen was not an issue for our group of 6. The beach was a very short walk and the outside shower was perfect. We had great weather and the ocean was Emerald Isle green the whole week. Owners were great with all communication and refunded our security deposit within 24 hours after we left. Looking forward to a return visit at Dolphin Reach.
