About the property

Close to Beach, Stores, Quiet, Comfortable and a Putting Green

After a 7 month remodel the Dolphin House Huntington Beach opened on November 1, 2016. To take the virtual tour, just Google "Huntington Beach Dolphin House" and judge for yourself. The 300MB download speed WIFI powers all your devices and covers the entire property. We positioned 3 flat screen "Smart TV's" where the family could gather in the Dolphin Room and watch Netflix on the 55' UHD screen, or scatter to view their preferred programs. The cooks in the clan will not be lacking in the kitchen with an assortment of pots and pans, dishes, wine glasses, coffee maker, cutlery and many staples already stocked. And the if you prefer, there is a very nice gas barbecue in the back yard. The washer and dryer are new and we already have the detergent. Also in the garage the kids will find an air hockey table and a nice assortment of bikes. The adults may prefer to play a few rounds on the 3 hole putting green. Parking at the Dolphin House is free and easy. 10 steps behind the rear gate is a cul de sac that is very safe, there is no through traffic and is empty most of the time or you could also park in front of the garage door. So I invite you to take the virtual tour of the Dolphin House and let me know if you have any questions.

About James Mushen

A Huntington Beach local since 1980, I love Huntington Beach and would be delighted to help you make the most of your visit to surf city. I am close by if you need me for anything or have questions. There is what I call "The Dolphin House Bible" on the kitchen counter which is full of local information, restaurants, shopping, local attractions, hiking/biking routes etc. Vacations are an investment and let me help you make the most of yours.

James Mushen purchased this house in 1980

Why James Mushen chose Yorktown

There are not many/any 3 bedroom 2 bath vacation rentals in Huntington Beach of this quality at this price. Look at the reviews and comments that we have gathered in a few short months. You have quick access to the beach and are close to the stores, major highways, Disneyland in a very quiet and safe neighborhood. Watch the virtual tour and let me know if you have questions, Google "Huntington Beach Dolphin House".

Guestbook comments from the owner

Me and my boyfriend had the pleasure of staying at James "Dolphin House". We has so much fun and created great memories. The house was just perfect. I love the bedroom with the way the windows are and how the sun comes in. James was also very helpful whenever we had a question. We stayed a little over a month and I hope whoever else comes has a nice as a time as we did. And the jacuzzi is great. Lots of Love

5 Star Accommodation at a 3 star price.Fantastic!!

  • 5 of 5

Cozy and classy beach decor. The master bath and bedroom are incredible. The bed is one of the most comfortable I have ever slept in and I have the same $800 bathroom faucet fixtures in my house. The property and house were extremely clean ( and I am a clean fanatic). In the garage we found bikes and all the beach gear we could ever need. Towels, beach chairs, wet suits, boogie boards, surf board, and coolers. No need to pack and bring beach things.James was a delightful host and willing to do anything to make our stay the absolute best. We will definitely be back!!!!! Thank you James.

Me and my family loves everything about house, it spacious, bright with nature light in the morning. Love the back yard and the set up in front so cute where you can enjoy in the morning with the breezy wind in your face. I wish the weather would be a little warmer so we can enjoy more outside. Very Quite neighborhood, easy access. I really appreciate how James checking in to see if everything is good when we arrived. We definitely will be back!!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you Sophia and the weather was a little cool this time, it can be be 80 this time of year, but any one that chooses to read this should know that Sophie and her crew were the perfect guests. Very respectful and the cleaning crew had little to do. Thank-you Sophie, hope to see you again.

Where do I begin.... James, the owner is very hospitable, happy man to rent from. So clean! So much natural light, the softest bed linens ever, 3 patio areas - nice and private. The spa tub was lovely after a day of activities. I really enjoyed the outdoor shower, bikes, and having the kitchen with anything you might need. He made it very homey and comfortable! He thought of all the details!!

The home was fantastic! Close to the ocean and a well supplied kitchen (I like to cook my meals). Separate living areas for the kids and adults. Plenty of room to move around. Lots of amenities for entertainment - bikes, air hockey table, miniature golf, nice large TV. I recommend this home and hope to vacation here again!
