About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8) Private Beach Access & Great Views

Spend your vacation at one of the nicer beach homes available in the Outer Banks. The Lucky Dolphin is located on Virginia Dare Trail “The Beach Road” at mile post 6 in Kill Devil Hills. This central location is just minutes from grocery stores, surf and novelty shops, cafes and restaurants. Visit the Avalon Fishing Pier, Jockey’s Ridge, Wright Brother’s Memorial, Putt Putt or play a round of golf and one of 5 fabulous golf courses.

While on the property you can enjoy the sights and sounds of the ocean. Lucky Dolphin boasts two decks overlooking the beautiful Carolina Coast. You will experience breathtaking views. The Lucky Dolphin offers a spacious and roomy floor plan sure to meet your accommodation needs.

A PRIVATE beach access is located in front of the house, just steps away. This is perfect to enjoy family time or a romantic stroll. When the day is done, wash off in the outdoor shower that offers both hot and cold water. There is an area on the lower level for you to store all your beach gear.

Renting directly from me, the owner, there are never any hidden fees or charges. I will be happy to answer any questions and assist you in planning your vacation.

Why Wayne and Denise Cochran chose Northern Coast & Outer Banks

We love our home and it's location. Centrally located we are close to grocery stores, restaurants, novelty shops and activities. We are a 30 sec drive to the Avalon Fishing Pier and Awful Arthur's.

What makes this house unique

Our house has a great view of the beach. The three lots across from us are undeveloped and are owned by our friends. This affords us amazing views and a private beach access - which is not the case with most houses on beach road.

A great 2 years of 3 generation family vacations

  • 5 of 5

We had 2 years of staying here for our August family vacation and great experiences both times. Denise was helpful and flexible and the house meet all our expectations and more. The house is right across Beach Road from the ocean, so you get all the perks of being on the beach without people walking across your yard and invading your privacy (and without the extra money for sandy toes). Close to a Food Lion, great coffee, and within walking distance of the restaurant/bar Awful Arthur's and the pier. We will definitely be back in the future. Thanks for a great 2 years!

Great Deal, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

1/2 the money of oceanfront across the street from private access. Great views, contemporary and bright inside, working central air, convenient outdoor shower so you don't track sand into the house. This is important since this is a 'self-clean' house, and you want to keep the mess to a minimum so you don't spend your whole last morning cleaning. Personally I would have preferred to pay for a cleaning service, but it is made completely clear that you're on your own. Accomodating & friendly owner-operators, you don't have to go to some manager's office during office hours to get keys. Sunday-to-Sunday avoids the traffic on Saturday turn day (though even the Saturday traffic wasn't as bad as expected).

As noted, house is bright and modern inside, you can find wear if you look with some of the personal property but you've got what you need and whatever else you get from K-Mart walking distance away. The house is really at a perfect standard for a beach house, you don't have to wear white gloves. Since the public beach access is some ways down, this stretch of beach is not very crowded and there are no condos, hotels, or apartments right here. Pretty much all the surrounding houses are seasonal rentals, too, so the beach is populated by other families on vacation - really quite pleasant. As is typical, you do not have access to the garage but there is covered parking for 2 cars plus the driveway.

So no complaints and we'll certainly look this place up the next time we decide to drive cross-country. Thanks.

Beach Week

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay, Great location. The house is exactly as described/shown in pictures. Very clean and comfortable. Kitchen well furnished. Owners were helpful and very easy to work with. I would definitely recommend this place to others, will love to stay here again in the future.

Easy to get to the beach, beautiful beach views. You can always see the ocean. Like being close to grocery stores and "Wings" for beach needs.

Spacious and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Lucky Dolphin! The house is big, modern and comfortable! I enjoyed sitting on the top deck every morning drinking my coffee and looking at the ocean. The walk to the beach was short and easy. The king size bed has the most comfortable mattress, I slept so good every night! The jetted tub was the answer to the long drive down on our first night. It was reasonably priced with excellent accommodations. Close to everything, great views, we would definitely stay at the Lucky Dolphin again!

Good Times at Lucky Dolphin

  • 5 of 5

The Lucky Dolphin is a great value. The location and accommodations were perfect for 2 adults and 3 college age kids. It was clean and well maintained, the photos shown are very recent and accurate. You can walk to Awful Arthurs, the Pier, the K-Mart and the beach access path is 2 doors down and across the street!...maybe 100 feet at the most to the access and another 100 feet across the dune to the beach. Close enough to go back and forth for lunch and snack breaks. The kitchen was very clean and well equipped for breakfasts and lunches, but since we were on vacation we ate dinner out every night. The useability and cleanliness of the outside shower was a real bonus.... If you're a cyclist, this location gives easy access to the soundside bike trails by crossing US158 at the 5th street light.

The owners were real easy to work with and we would recommend this property to friends and relatives. The only drawback is that it is tenant self-cleaning, but it was left to us in sparkling condition by the previous tenant.

Nice house, great location, we had a good stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for four nights in May. This was our first VRBO experience and it was good! The price was right, the owners were very easy to work with, and the location was perfect because we could always see the ocean, whether in the kitchen, living area or on the two decks. (Caution: it does front the beach road, so there is noise, especially in the busier times, but we thought the hammock chair swing and views were worth it.) The house is also within walking distance of Kmart if you forget anything.

The house has a reverse floor plan, and that's the only level we used. The King bed was comfortable, the jacuzzi tub was relaxing, and the flat panel TV made us feel right at home. The kitchen had what we needed to fix seafood everyday and the unit was clean. Overall it was a very comfortable house and enjoyable stay.

Several rental companies near by offer motorized parasailing, kiteboarding, jet ski, boat, surf board and bike rentals. Less that 2 blocks south of the Avalon Fishing Pier
