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.

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.

Beautiful, Fun HB Beachhouse

  • 5 of 5

The property is clean, well put together and accessible. We loved being just down the street from the beach, close to a shopping center and not too far from the freeway to visit other cities on our family vacation! There was plenty of space and everything you could need- fully equipped kitchen, washer/dryer, bikes and games for entertainment, as well as roku boxes for evening relaxing. There is a precious putting green in the back and a barbecue plus big table for enjoying the beautiful weather. We will definitely be staying here again!

Clean, Quiet, Comfortable, Close to Beach & Stores

  • 5 of 5

We loved the Dolphin House. To see the virtual tour, just google "Dolphin House Huntington Beach. Great location near the beach, stores and restaurants. Amenities include: 3 flat panel HD Smart TV's with all the movie and sport channels, a putting green, an air hockey table that can turn into a pool table, 6 bikes, boogie boards, wet suits, ice chest, modern washer and dryer, WIFI at 150 upload and download, key coded door locks and the parking is close just behind the rear gate. The house is very clean and the owner texted to make certain that we arrived safely and asked if we needed anything. The kitchen is well stocked with plates, pots and pans and we will definitely be back.

Great home in Huntington Beach

  • 5 of 5

This is a great home with many "extras" for your stay - loved the putting green as well as access to bikes to ride (10 minutes to the downtown area of HB). Also, all of the beach things you could imagine - wetsuits, boogie boards, towels, etc! So nice that we had use of those things. I appreciated the extra items in the house too such as cleaning products, laundry soap, garbage bags, etc - nice to not have to add those to our shopping list! The home is laid out well and has ample sleeping space. It is in a nice, safe, quiet neighborhood. Only downfall is no air conditioning but their are plenty of fans to help keep the home cool - certainly didn't hinder our stay in any way. The home's owner is EXTREMELY attentive and helpful with recommendations on the local area. I would definitely consider staying here should we ever vacation in Huntington Beach again.

Surfing vacation with sons

  • 5 of 5

My two teenage sons and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Dolphin House. The house was a very short distance to the grocery store and several restaurants and only a short drive to the beach. All necessary amenities were supplied and the kitchen was fully equipped with plenty of dishes, pots and pans, etc. There are two separate "living room" areas, which is great if two parties want to watch different things on TV. The garage was also stocked with beach equipment including chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards etc. James even allowed my son to use one of the surf boards, which worked out very well for us. We would definitely stay here again if we come back to the Huntington Beach area.
