Sweet little place!
"This place was just as lovely as I had hoped. The owner was immensely helpful and welcoming. Check in was super convenient and on my schedule. Could be done with a lock box, but owner was there to welcome my husband and I, even though it was late. She helped us plan our days and gave us tips for dining and sightseeing. I loved having her there on the property to help if I had a quick question, but we also had plenty of privacy, too. The studio felt very separate with the layout and trees helping to give us some sense of coziness. The place itself was very quiet as the property is located nearly at the end of an already quiet street so almost no one drives by. The backyard is a little slice of heaven with lots of trees, including a sweet Weepin Willow cradling individual seating areas in a flagstone patio, with access to a grill if desired. A hammock is hung near the water between two trees with a string of lights draping over it to give you a lovely nighttime escape. And of course, the dock on the Sound is the best seat in the place to take in the beauty of the massive body of water. We were blessed with the most spectacular sunset reflected like a mirror over the calm waters while we were there. The land mass to the west is far enough away that it nearly disappears completely, leaving the most peaceful, serene view before you. Lighting hanging in the trees at night brings the space alive and everything felt so warm and inviting. Inside the studio was just perfect - everything we needed - and just the right amount of space. Just as cozy and welcoming as the lovely yard. We WILL be back and were sad to have to leave!!!"

"Loved the many decks! Great pool, but could have used another umbrella. Plenty of room for our big 3 generation family. Loved that property had beach cart, wagon, sand toys, beach chairs and two umbrellas so there was no need to buy or rent all that stuff. It was wonderful communicating directly with Kathy, the owner. Property was clean and very well furnished with comfortable beds, plenty of seating (inside, on decks and by pool), and quality kitchen equipment (a big contrast with other places we have rented). One minor issue: gas grill did not get very hot."

"We typically stay in Duck, but found this place on VRBO & saw the beautiful front-row views of the sound and decided to book this home. Wow, what a great view, sunsets were beautiful, evenings by the fire pit helped take the chill off (we came early in the season), and everyone of the 6 us was pleased! Most of us are from "up north" so it definitely had more of a "lake house" feel, which we loved! 2 of the bedrooms are on one end of the home, while 3 are in the other...helps with groups/families and allows for a "retreat" when quiet time is needed. The home was super clean, clearly the owners take pride in the home and use it personally, unlike many of the pure rentals in the area."

"The Dolphin Inn was a great place to gather our family of 15. The pool was a great asset for July! We could cool off without having to go very far! There is plenty of space for 4 families with kids. The house couldn't have more amenities! The beach was great... went every day to swim! Watched dolphins and pelicans play and feed most days. A fisherman pulled in a 7-foot shark. We went into the water when dolphins were not near us... and felt safe from sharks. Water was clear and warm! Evenings, we found the kids making their own popcorn in the downstairs microwave and watching a movie while the adults were similarly occupied upstairs. Plenty of choices for everyone! Though we thought we do more sightseeing, it was just great to hang at the house and beach. Plenty of relaxing family time! Jorge was always available for questions... very prompt replies ALWAYS!"
