“Beautiful beach house with great views”

Reviewed 3 Sep 2016

We loved this place. It was clean, great location (private), very short walk to the beach, beautiful views from living room and 2 bedrooms, lots of space (also nice little nooks to hand out like hammock, porch swing...), we LOVED the outdoor shower, the bikes looked very nice but too hot to use while we were there. The decorating was so cute and beachy feeling! . Emerald Isle reality was a snap to pick up/drop off key. We really had a great experience with this rental.

“Could not have been better”

Reviewed 16 Aug 2015

My only complaint is a terrible coffee maker, but they had a kurieg. Also, the hot and cold were reversed on the washer. This place is clean, comfortable, very well appointed and close to the beach. The kitchen was also well equipped. This is so well taken care of I am sure the above concerns have been addressed. Another added plus, very close to a grocery store.

“Greatest Rental EVER”

Reviewed 19 Jul 2015

This is the second time we've rented Dolphin Lookout. It is second row, but has AMAZING views from all the decks, which are located on each floor. We loved the huge, spacious kitchen with all the amenities. There was room for all of us 7 adults and a baby! We all had a terrific time! Thanks for providing the bikes, gas grill, linens, etc. This beautiful home is close to Emerald Plantation and has easy access to the bike bath (where we had our daily walk), grocery store, restaurants, etc. The beach wasn't crowded and access is just a few feet from the home. The home made our vacation the best ever! We weren't piled on top of each other, it was roomy, lots of bathrooms, and very well decorated. I love this place!

“Great Beach Property”

Reviewed 29 Aug 2013

We'd been vacationing in Topsail for the last 7 years, so this was our first summer beach trip to Emerald Isle. Great experience all the way around. The people at Emerald Isle Realty are very responsive if there are any issues at all, and the property itself is a gem. The kitchen in particular is very well apportioned. Each bedroom is unique in terms of furnishing and decor. The place is clean and nicely decorated overall. Great view of the ocean from the balcony. Yeah, the driveway is a little steep, but get over it. That added elevation is what provides the lovely view. It's a few hundred feet to the walkway to the beach. Great property. We already booked it for next year.

“We really enjoy Dolphin Lookout and have been rented this house”

Reviewed 8 Aug 2013

Dolphin Lookout meets all of our needs for my family. The kitchen is well stocked and this makes cooking great meals easy. The house is always clean when we arrive, it has plenty of room. My boys love the enclosed outdoor shower, the xbox, the flat screen tvs, the speaker they can connect their ipods too. I love the porch swing, the fact that you can see and hear the ocean from both porches, and all the nice decorative touches all over the house. It feels like home when you are there. The shed has sand toys, boogie boards, beach games, and even a couple of beach chairs. We love the location!! The beach access is close by and easy enough to walk back and forth to. It is close to restaurants, Food Lion, and Mini Golf, local beach stores, ice cream, and other specialty stores. It is also close to the bridge so you can get to Beaufort and Morehead City very easily.

“terrific vacation”

Reviewed 11 Jul 2013

This house is amazing! Kitchen is wonderfully stocked with all needed cooking supplies. The place is beautiful...(we didn't mind the driveway)! The 8 of us enjoyed the bikes, the beautifulviews, the easy beach access and closeness to Emerald Plantation shopping and dining, the porch chairs and swing...everything about it! There were a few complaints about the beds in the guest rooms not being as comfortable, but our master suite bed was terrific. Thank you so much for sharing your home! We hope to come again.

“Excellent family value”

Reviewed 4 Apr 2013

We have stayed at Dolphin Lookout multiple times. It is convenient to the beach, a reasonable price and very well appointed. The drive way is steep which can be a challenge for the very young and very old. But it also means great views from the top deck! We will be back.

Response from the manager It pleases me to know that you and your family enjoy revisiting Dolphin Lookout each year. The driveway of this home is steep because it is situated on a high lot and, as you mentioned, boasts great views because of this. We look forward to your next stay with us at Dolphin Lookout. Please call us if we can be of assistance as you continue to plan your trip to the Crystal Coast - 1-888-832-0140.

“Great family home”

Reviewed 2 Jul 2012

We have rented this house 6-7 times, have lost count. Great location, fantastic family beach. Sure the driveway is steep, but that means fabulous views from both the second and third floor decks! Kitchen has everything. Looks like 2 new bikes and a new gas grill. No beach chairs this year - were counting on tem being here since they have been in past. Couple of video game systems plus board games. Your family will have a great time at Dolphin Lookout and Emerald Isle.

Response from the manager Thank you for your review of your stay at Dolphin Lookout. It pleases me to know that you and your family enjoy revisiting this home each year and we hope you'll return for many more vacations. Please call us when you begin making plans for your next stay - 1-888-832-0140.

“A nice home, clean, furnished nicely, and a great kitchen”

Reviewed 28 Jun 2012

The only down side is the drive way as it is dangerous for driving and for children. My wife has had two knee replacements, and she could not walk down the drive - she asked the neighbors and they let her use their driveway.

Response from the manager Thank you for your review of your stay at Dolphin Lookout. It pleases me to know that you arrived to find the home clean and nicely furnished. I am sorry to hear of the challenge which the steep driveway posed for your wife. This home is on a high lot so while the views from the beach are great, the driveway is steep. While Dolphin Lookout is a lovely home, I understand that it might not work for you for a future stay. Please call us when you begin making plans for your next Emerald Isle vacation and we'll happily assist you in finding a home - 1-888-832-0140.

“Great View/Well Stocked Kitchen”

Reviewed 25 Aug 2011

Great place one of the nicer ones I have been in the past 15 years. Recommend new couches and porch furniture---plastic chairs not easy to get into, uncomfortable. Make sure you keep the steepness of the driveway in your ads. All in all, if I come back to Emerald Isle, I would use this house again.
