Here's what a recent guest had to say about Dolphin's Landing: "Dolphin's Landing is in the perfect spot on the beach. With lots of privacy due to the open lots on each side. A huge outdoor shower is very convenient with a new shower head and hot water. The new kitchen and bathroom updates are very nice. A huge picture window upstairs has amazing views of the ocean. We watched the dolphin's swimming every morning from our balcony. It is within walking distance to some of the BEST restaurants. A cozy little house to relax in after a long day on the beach."L.

The pictures of the place looked like it was well taken care of but a little dated, what we found was a place that was a lot dated and not taken care of. The floors in the place were all uneven like the place had settled unevenly. I set up my hammock under the large deck to find the problem, the beams were eaten away by termites. On top of that the beds were the worst, motel 8 has better beds...no really they do. We considered sleeping on the floor, however the carpet had foul smell to it, so that was out of the question. We purchased air mattresses instead to solve the problem to the tune of $160. There is also a dune on one side of the property that everyone has worn away by walking on it, making it a new public access for everyone that was renting on the other side of the street. Fantastic.
On the plus side the upstairs was much bigger than the pictures lead us to believe. The kitchen was well stocked with wine glasses that seemed to wisk the issues of this house away, at least temporarily. House should come with free wine, so that the floors didn't feel like you were in a fun house, at least then you would have a reason to walk unevenly. The deck was quite nice and the outdoor shower was a great addition.
Contains beach in front of the house so I guess that was worth the money we spent...

The location of Dolphins Landing couldn't be better! Close to shopping and restaurants. We were able to watch dolphins swimming from the back deck almost everyday. We were worried about the a/C since the description only listed the two bedroom a/C units but there is an a/C unit in the living room and one upstairs which kept the house comfortable with the high humidity. The locks weren't working properly when we first got there but they had someone at the house fixing it within 10 minutes. All around we had a great experience with atlantic Reality and Dolphin's Landing! Read more

Great Beach Cottage
Left on 08/07/2013 for a stay in July 2013 | Courson
We enjoyed our stay at Dolphin's Landing. The house is in a great location. The inside of the home is cozy and well equipped. There are fabulous ocean views from both floors. The upper floor of the house is an enclosed loft, but there is no door so if you have children sleeping up there, you really have to keep the noise down on the bottom floor. There is a lot of privacy underneath the house with a great enclosed outdoor shower which made beach clean up nice and easy. We also took regular showers out there. We barely used the indoor shower. We enjoyed sitting on and having meals on the large deck overlooking the ocean. Though there is really nowhere to put them, a washer and dryer would be a great addition to this house. My only complaint would be the rather loud air conditioning unit in the living room. When it turned on, it was hard to have a conversation or hear the TV. Read more

This house was great. Not too big or expensive, but well-appointed and very enjoyable. I will say that the main room's air conditioner was pretty loud, but if you're not planning on spending a ton of time indoors, you wouldn't even really notice. Beds were comfortable enough for my wife (6 months pregnant) to sleep through the night on. Can't beat the location. Dolphins just offshore every morning, and there was even a humpback whale! Atlantic Realty was also fantastic, very accommodating. All in all, an enjoyable experience. Read more

Right on the water experience
Left on 08/15/2012 for a stay in August 2012 | Steve
The value going for this property is that it is right on the water and without houses on either side. Therefore, the privacy makes it desirable. The property is well maintained with ample beach motif sprinkled throughout. The deck overlooking the beach and sea is "to die for" in properties of this type. From early dawn, to sunset, and into the night for star gazing from the deck is simply divine. One is able to relax on this deck and drink in the beauty from sunup, to sun down, and beyond. The property is in close proximity to all needed services - grocery store, gasoline station, shopping, and drug store, without having travel too far or fight the ever growing traffic. I only wish they would allow pets. Many others do and having your pet along, would be my desire. Read more

What an informative review...sure to help others when considering their vacation home! We are pleased that you had a great vacation, inspite of having to leave your pet behind. We do encourage our owners to be "pet friendly" and regret that this particular property isn't. We hope that you will stay with us again on your next OBX vacation!

Great little house each morning we got up to see the sun rise and also the dolphins almost every morning. The girls laid in bed upstairs and watched the sunrise, great view from the upstairs window. Outside you have everything you need nice chairs on each side of the deck. A few things it needs but, you barely miss cause everything else is so good,
is a washer and dryer and more than one TV in the house. I would recommend this house to anyone, and i will definitely be staying here again. Thanks for a wonderful vacation. Read more

We stayed here 2 years in a row and had a great time each year. We loved watching the dolphins each day. The weather was good, with the exception of Beryll! We enjoy Kill Devils Custard and Fries for dinner. Best brownie sundae say my 4 kids. Read more

Memories at Dolphins Landing
Left on 06/29/2011 for a stay in June 2011 | Renise & Jack McCraw
This was our second stay at Dolphins Landing and we loved it just as much or more this time. We had a new family member (son-in-law) join us and this house and the beach made the bonding between all of the family even more amazing. The first time I had one grandson who was 2 and now is 15 and now have another grandson who is 6. The oldest brought his best friend and we all just blended and co-existed so well. The views were unforgetable as was everything. Thank you so much for our time there. There was only 3 things that I would add 1) washer and dryer(you go through so many towels) and a queen bed upstair and move the little tv upstairs and add a flatscreen downstairs for those rainy days.But, it was cozy and warm feeling and I hope to return to this house soon.

I have vacationed the outer banks most of my life, but after finding the "Dolphins Landing" I cant seem to go anywhere else. This is warm/cozy home that the home-owners have been nice enough to rent out and let others enjoy this great property! Thanks again, see u next year!!

Perfect location, nice updated kitchen. Bed not so comforable and could use central air. But we would stay there again. Love the Outer Banks and the Dolphin's Landing...

Nice Vacation Rental in Prime Location
Left on 06/17/2010 for a stay in June 2010 | Mike
Really enjoyed our stay. The house is in a perfect location, with great ocean views and an uncrowded beach. In close proximity to restaurants, shopping and other necessities, Can watch dolphins and pelicans right from the deck. Nice separation from neighboring houses too. House is well kept and well stocked with kitchen dishes, cookware, appliances and utensils. Only complaint is the largest bed was on the small side and somewhat uncomfortable for two average sized adults.
Best place on the beach!!!

We strongly recommend this quaint 3 bedroom cottage because of its beautiful view, location, deck , well stocked kitchen, and history!! We enjoyed not having homes on either side and cozy at-home feel. Easy access to the beach and due to being in the middle of the peninsula we were able to go on tours of the light houses, whale head club, hatteras, roanoke island, 4x4 beaches and much more!! At the same time we would like to thank the owners for sharing this slice of heaven w/ the public. Thanks again Martin and Joanna. We'll be back next year! Read more

Reservations, check-in, etc. was great. The place was neat and clean when we arrived. A few lesser things (such as miniblinds and fans) were quite dirty. The location was great. Loved being right on the beach, and the beach wasn't crowded. Having the outdoor shower was nice, although the fixtures were rusty and not too inviting.
The kitchen was very well stocked with everything needed if you felt like cooking. The deck and chairs were great. The house needs some refurbishing. Living room furniture was not very nice and the carpet felt icky and needs to be replaced (maybe carpet isn't the best option anyway with the damp salt air...) Rusty tub... Beds were very comfortable though. Would be nice to have the double bed upstairs with the sitting room and the twin beds downstairs (personal preference!)
All in all, we enjoyed our stay.

Dolphin's Landing is a quaint, no frills but comfortable, cottage type house right on the beach, wonderful location, with empty lots on either side. It's location couldn't be more perfect and the outside shower was used more than the inside one because of convenience. This was our second visit to Dolphin's Landing. Would sit on the deck each morning to watch the sun come up and the dolphins swim by....beautiful!! We recommend this home for smaller families and for the price. We will be back!!
superb location and view
Left on 04/24/2009 for a stay in August 2008 | CC
The location of the house is wonderful, no house left or right and a
wonderful view of the ocean. You can see the dolphins swimming right
from the deck!
Luckily the weather was great, so we spent most of the time outside.
The beach is clean and even in August there were hardly people
around us. The house would need some renovation, especially the
bathroom and kitchen. A dishwasher would have been nice to have as
well as a washing machine. The bathroom, with only 1 toilett was an
issue for us, a family of 5, but we often used the outdoor shower
which was great to have.
We think fondly of our days at Dolphin's Landing and with a bit of
renovation inside , it would be almost perfect.
great cabin but needs some updates
Left on 03/31/2009 for a stay in July 2008 | loveobx
This was a lovely home for a family. The views were spectacular and it was comfortable. However, I think some updates would really benefit this place. The wall AC did not work very well downstairs. The living room furniture was pretty old and uncomfortable. I don't care about fancy but I think these few updates would really improve this place. I loved reading the journal of all the people that had been there. It was like being in an old movie.
