Quaint Beach House

  • 5 of 5

This house worked well for our family. The beach access is directly across the street. There are three common areas, which gave our teens a gaming space and then we used the main floor common space for family gatherings. The kitchen is tight, but is open to the eating area and common area so making food was easy. The house was very clean when we arrived. All linens were placed on each bed in their wrapped packages. I appreciated not having to sort through all the bedding and towels when we arrived. Zeb called me when the house was clean! This was much appreciated. It was a perfect house for our vacation on Emerald Isle.

We love coming to Emerald Isle and staying at Dolphin Reach! What a great property and great value!

  • 5 of 5

There is plenty of room for our family of 7. We like so much about this house. The only downside is the small kitchen but it's something we're fine with for only a week's stay. Beach access is right across the street which is a quiet street with a cul-de-sac at one end. Great property!

Great home with easy access to th beach!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Dolphin's Reach. The home had gorgeous views and lots of room. The outdoor shower was the best, with convenient access and great water pressure. The third floor bedroom had a bonus sitting area and work space. The kitchen was tiny and had little storage, but we made it work, and ended up cooking and eating in 6 out of 7 nights. A nice grill was available outside as well as a water hose for easy beach clean up. Great location-I would highly recommend.

Beautiful beach home!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 5th stay in Dolphin Reach, which indicates how much we like staying at this property! The location is superb in a quiet community with the beach access directly across the street. The home is beautifully decorated and always clean! The owners are great, responding to any inquiries quickly. Emerald Isle is one of our favorite beaches and we look forward to returning next year!

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.

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!
