Overview

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.

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.

Comfortable, clean and great location!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Dolphin house with my husband, daughter and son in law was fabulous! The master bed was luxurious and the large shower with skylights was great. We enjoyed the 3 outdoor seating areas, access to bicycles, putt putt golf and air hockey. Also loved being near the ocean and the quiet neighborhood. Definite 2 thumbs up!!!

A beautiful, nicely located, spacious home!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful spacious and highly functional home that provides all the little touches (Wifi, Smart TVs, Kitchen, Gameroom, BBQ, Putting Green!) that would serve a group well on vacation. I live locally and thought it was so clean that I plan on hiring the same cleaning service for my personal home. James is highly responsive and a genuinely nice guy. I highly recommend renting this place.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at dolphin house. The house is so comfortable and well equipped. We cooked quite a bit and had everything we needed including a spice rack. There were beach bikes, beach chairs, wetsuits, plenty of towels. We loved the outdoor areas and had most of our meals outside. Highly recommend this lovely property.

Clean, Airy, perfect place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have picked a better place for our girl's weekend away.

The Dolphin house was just perfect for 6. Plenty of places to hang together and places to hang if one wanted private time. Proximity to downtown Huntington Beach and Pacific City and the beach couldn't be better. We could walk/bike with the 6 bicycles provided by James, or an Uber ride was 5-6 dollars. Love the little nuances he thought of to make your stay so comfortable and enjoyable. I will definitely stay here again.
