We had a memorable experience at the Dolphin House. Was different than the surrounding properties. Offered privacy and charm. I will definitely book this again. Great place for a large get together and had everything we needed. The owner Debra was wonderful to work with.

This house was amazing! We did not want to leave. It was close to everything including a place to rent bikes, great places to eat, and the bay and the beach.

Charming house at a relatively modest price

  • 5 of 5

The Dolphin house was an excellent value for our family vacation. The location was perfect. Just steps away from Mission Bay. Just across the street from Mission Beach. Walking distance to Belmont Park. Walking distance to eating places. 13 of us crashed at the Dolphin House. There were enough beds for all of us. We were afraid that only two bathrooms would be a major problem, but everybody just used the bathrooms whenever they were free, and we didn't have any problems or long lines. The place was not modern, but clean. Deborah was very nice. Overall, this was an excellent value.

The perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

We have been vacationing in Mission Beach for the past 9 years, bouncing from property to property. This last summer after meeting you and your wife and getting our tour, we knew we had hit the jackpot. The tropical theme through out the house and garden created a very relaxing paradise. We especially enjoyed the Sea World fireworks.

Your Dolphin House was just perfect for our two families and when we left we took with us meny special memoriew of our fun filled holiday. You can expect to see us next summer and we hope menyu more to come. Thank you, Deborah

Our family of six were extremely comfortable here! Thank you so much, Mike and family for the wonderful sand pails personalized with the kids' names! That was such a nice surprise! We found the house to match your descriptions perfectly! We enjoyed the new grill and dining at the Tiki bar! We lit the tiki torches almost every night! Thank you so much for such a wonderful week of relaxation and family memories!
