“This is a great place for a vacation!!”

Reviewed 29 May 2015

We went just before the season started and it was fabulous. The Dolphin Inn has everything you need to make your vacation fun...pool, hot tub, volley ball court, children's play area, dog kennel, clean and attractive rooms with TVs, DVDs, Etc. Add the ocean and local events and places to eat and it was perfection. This property is perfect for any size family and has enough diverse play/ret areas that everyone can do what they want all the time. The owners stay in contact to ensure everything goes well and to provide any advice for things to do.

“Pet-Friendly Destingation”

Reviewed 16 Feb 2015

As a 'Pet-Blogger', I am always looking for great places to holiday with our two dogs Henry, and Reese. More specifically, somewhere we can 'enjoy' with the dogs without having to worry about what to do with them when we visit restaurants, shops or go sightseeing. The Dolphin Inn was the perfect place to stay! This trip was arranged as a group get together; my husband, parents, in-laws and sister with her husband and two small children. The spacious accommodation meant no one felt as if they were tripping over one another. Although we didn't eat evening meals as a group, we enjoyed breakfast together at a large table located beside the spacious kitchen on the upper level. Because of the layout and quiet location of the Inn, we were comfortable leaving Henry and Reese to relax comfortably when we went out to do 'people only' things. Our hosts were very helpful with suggestions regarding things to do and see in the area. Upon arrival we found guides with locations and contact information, as well as preferred rates on several activities for guests of the Inn. I am happy to recommend The Dolphin Inn to groups or families with or without dogs!

“Perfect in January!”

Reviewed 7 Feb 2015

We stayed in January and what a fantastic experience it was! The home was perfect. In fact, in spite of it being 48 degrees outside, we played volleyball and some basketball in the driveway and had a wonderful time. With the bright sun hitting the court it felt like 60! The kids had plenty to do while we were there. There is a TV in every room with an internet media player to watch Netfix if you get bored or just feel like relax for a bit. There is a gaming table on the bottom floor for the kids to play on, and a large tv there in case you want to bring your xbox or ps4 to plug into. The top floor has a very large library of very good DVDs. We loved the big fireplace on the top floor. Everyone seemed to gather around it at night and it gave us a great excuse to engage in some good conversation. The fireplace on with the push of a button on the wall, so it's very easy to use. The queen size bedrooms on the second floor were awesome. Just like the rest of the house, they were all very clean/spotless. The balcony views for each were also very nice. The third floor bedroom is also quite comfortable. There's a really nice balcony view from there as well. Oh yeah, that bedroom has a very nice jetted tub as well. Whether it's 95 degrees in August or 48 degrees in January, this is a home you want to stay it if you have a large family. Jorge the owner is one of the nicest people you'll ever speak to in your entire life. He checks on you to make sure your stay is comfortable and reminds you of the discounts you can get around town. For example he told us about the bowling pass on the refrigerator which saved us some $$$ on the second night we were there. He was ALWAYS accessible if we needed anything. Lets see..the kitchen had everything you needed to cook and prepare food... pots and pans, oven, microwave, you name it. On a scale of 1-10 I would rate our stay a 10... as far as dealing with the owner, on a scale of 1-10, I would give Jorge an 11. Thanks for the hospitality.

The Dolphin Inn is a very fun and family-friendly vacation home. It's close to the beach, but you don't even need to leave to have a great time! The private pool, free Netflix, and volleyball court in the backyard kept us thoroughly entertained. We slept great each night in the comfy beds with mattress toppers...after winding down in the hot tub of course! But perhaps the best part of our experience was working with the owners. We have never dealt with more sincerely kind hearted people in all our years of coming to the Outer Banks. We're so glad we are part of the Dolphin Inn family!

“A Memorable Vacation”

Reviewed 28 Aug 2014

: We were a party of eight, aged from 17 to 70, staying at the Dolphin during the second week of August. Within one day of our arrival we decided that this was a fantastic place to spend a week. Among the best things about the Dolphin are these. The owner could not have been more helpful, calling us several times during our arrival to answer all of our questions and ensure that everything went smoothly. The house itself is well designed to give everyone their own space and to provide a large and comfortable place for everyone to gather. The pool and hot tub are beautiful and situated for maximum privacy. The home has many amenities and is meticulously maintained. Lastly, it is located very near the beach and convenient to restaurants and attractions. On the way home we agreed that this was the best family vacation ever.

“A bit of paradise”

Reviewed 6 Aug 2014

We just got back from our vacation in the OBX and stayed at the Dolphin Inn. The owners were fabulous from booking through our vacation. They promptly answered every question we had and even called when we arrived to let us know if there was anything we needed they were just a phone call away. My family, parents, sister and brother's family stayed (14 in all) and we had plenty of room. Never felt crowded and were fortunate to all be able to eat together in the 3rd floor space. Playing volleyball was a blast and the kids enjoyed searching for pirate treasures were hid on the pirate ship in the backyard. We used the pool daily and were pleasantly surprised by the amount of beach items that were available for our use. The only downside was that getting across NC12 to walk to the beach was sometimes trying as people didn't always stop. Eventually (within a very short period) a kind person would stop and let us cross. Was an extremely easy walk to the beach and never once did the two 8-year olds, the 5-year old or 3-year old complain about the walk - that is how close the house is to the beach. To top it all off the weather was perfect! Definitely a vacation for the memory book! Special thanks to the Herrada's for sharing their home with us.

“The best rental home on the market - 5 stars”

Reviewed 16 Apr 2014

We have stayed at the Dolphin Inn rental home in Southern Shores (Duck), NC for four years now. The home owners are fantastic to deal with, very accommodating and gracious hosts. They take pride in their home always looking for ways to upgrade their offerings to the most discerning guests. This home has everything you would want in a rental home (7 nicely decorated bedrooms, large deck spaces, pool and hot tub, large children's playground called the pirates ship, sand volleyball court, basketball, gas grill, beautiful landscaping, Wifi, more TV channels you could ever imagine, a huge movie library, flat screen Tv's in every bedroom and living room, kids bunk rooms, 1 block from the beach, ocean views from the decks and second and third level living areas, memberships to a great local golf course - bowling alley, movie rental store, etc., This home is like a 5 star resort and I should know as I am in the luxury resort business. the home is clean, very well maintained and has excellent owners (George and Suzanna). everything you need is located onsite to include easy to carry beach chairs for the beach and a book that tells you everything you need to know about the local area and places to visit. I could not be more pleased about my vacation visits to the Dolphin Inn and will be back for many years to come, sometimes twice a year!

“Great Family Fun!”

Reviewed 27 Mar 2014

My family and I recently stayed at the Dolphin Inn and could not have been more satisfied with our experience. The house was very clean and well kept, kid friendly activities were nearby, and the owners were extremely helpful and accommodating. Jorge is very friendly and wants to ensure you have the best vacation possible while staying at his house. He keeps in touch with you and offers much advice on where to dine and where to go for fun activities, especially for the children. Whenever I called him, he could not be happier to help answer any questions I had. We did have an issue with the hot tub not working when we first arrived and he was able to have it fixed within 2 days, amazing turnaround time...with that said, we definitely will be returning for another family vacation next year!

“A Great Getaway Week!”

Reviewed 22 Mar 2014

We arrived and were most pleased with the accommodations. We were able to relax and to enjoy the area as well as the house. It was indeed a very restful week. I have rented homes similar to Dolphin Inn in Fenwick Island, Delaware on a couple of occasions. The Dolphin Inn is an excellent alternative to the Delaware accommodations. Thanks so much for the opportunity to enjoy this home. We hope to visit it again.

“The "Dolphin Inn" is a gorgeous beach house!!”

Reviewed 21 Mar 2014

The owners are very responsive to meet your needs to ensure your perfect vacation experience. The home has been thoughtfully and tastefully decorated with unbelievable attention to detail. Take time to review the amenities provided on their website. The rooms are large and comfortable. The home layout with three levels is perfect allowing privacy for everyone. The bedrooms on the upper and middle levels each have a sliding glass door to the balconies so you can go outside and not disturb others in your party. The fully equipped kitchen has everything you need to prepare meals. Centrally loaded to stores and restaurants, I am certain everyone will have an enjoyable vacation. Once you are settled in, please take a few minutes to read their welcome binder that provides you with detailed information about the area. I highly recommend this home for your vacation. It will be a memorable vacation.
