Recent Southern Shores reviews

  • A great vacation home

    "The Dolphin Inn was a great place for our Family get together. It's a beautiful house, and well maintained. Clean. Great pool and spa to enjoy when not out and about. It has a wonderful layout through out the house. We were close to the beach, stores and restaurants. The beach is private to only home renters in that area so it felt peaceful. And even the beach was clean. Just so beautiful. The owners were so pleasant and helpful to us when we had questions. Just a wonderful place to visit. We didn't want to leave."

  • outstanding time

    "Just a note to let you know how much we enjoyed out time at your home. We have been going to Outer Banks for the last 5 years, and this is the first time the kids didn't keep asking what are we doing next. They had plenty to keep them happy. We made use of everything there and enjoyed all of it. The highlight of the week, we were all out by the dock fishing and two members of our family had taken the canoe out right out in front of us, when 5 dolphins appeared and circled the boat twice and then went on there way. The kids loved it. Thanks again for the use of your home. Shiffletts from Shenandoah, Va"

  • Little oasis of peace

    "Spent 4 nights here with an old friend of mine from Durham in october. The place is perfect for 2 to 4 folks. Friends or a couple. Very nice clean and cozy. The fact that it is surrounded by trees makes you feel some privacy. We loved the backyard with the nice fire place, and the canal that leads to the sound. We rented a canoe, it was nice to paddle around. Malissa is a very nice and thoughtful person, she provided more than other other cottages i have rented in the outerbanks. Also, the location is nice to find out about the outerbanks, especially not very far from the nice corolla, and nags head piers. My girlfriend who couldn't take vacation this time wants already that we come back together!"

  • Great family vacation home!

    "This house was perfect for our family reunion of 17 (10 adults 7 children). The beach was an easy walk. The pool and kiddie slide were great for our young ones learning to swim and the hot tub was a real plus for the adults. The house was spacious and the view terrific. There were many amenities nearby."
