About the property

Video Tour, Google "Huntinton Beach Dolphin House" , For Quality, Active People

After a 7 month remodel the Dolphin House Huntington Beach opened on November 1, 2016. To take the virtual tour, just Google "Huntington Beach Dolphin House" and judge for yourself. The 300MB download speed WIFI powers all your devices and covers the entire property. Free Parking next to property. We positioned 3 flat screen "Smart TV's" where the family could gather in the Dolphin Room and watch Netflix on the 55' UHD screen, or scatter to view their preferred programs. The cooks in the clan will not be lacking in the kitchen with an assortment of pots and pans, dishes, wine glasses, coffee maker, cutlery and many staples already stocked. And the if you prefer, there is a very nice gas barbecue in the back yard. The washer and dryer are new and we already have the detergent. Also in the garage the kids will find an air hockey table and a nice assortment of bikes. The adults may prefer to play a few rounds on the 3 hole putting green. Parking at the Dolphin House is free and easy. 10 steps behind the rear gate is a cul de sac that is very safe, there is no through traffic and is empty most of the time or you could also park in front of the garage door. So I invite you to take the virtual tour of the Dolphin House and let me know if you have any questions.

Watch the virtual tour and let me know if you have questions, Google "Huntington Beach Dolphin House".

Guestbook comments from the owner

Me and my boyfriend had the pleasure of staying at James "Dolphin House". We has so much fun and created great memories. The house was just perfect. I love the bedroom with the way the windows are and how the sun comes in. James was also very helpful whenever we had a question. We stayed a little over a month and I hope whoever else comes has a nice as a time as we did. And the jacuzzi is great. Lots of Love

Great family vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

The house more than lived up to its online description. It was clean, spacious and had all the amenities we needed for a “home away from home” vacation. It was extremely hot the week we were there but the host had made sure the AC units/cooler and fans were on so it was comfortable when we arrived. The house has a fantastic outside seating area in the back as well as one side of the house so we were able to have family dinners and grill out most nights we were there. The location, about 2 miles from the beach, was very convenient and accessible both to shops/stores and local attractions. The host was extremely accessible and made us feel welcomed. If we had a question about the house or needed assistance, he responded right away and was very helpful. At the end of our trip, we realized we had made a mistake with our booking. The host was extremely understanding and worked with us to extend our stay one more day. We hope to visit the Dolphin House again. We had so much fun—from air hockey games in the garage to cooking together in the kitchen. I highly recommend this house for families who want to enjoy some together time close to the beach but away from the fray.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the kind words. It is very rewarding for me. I may have told you that this is my only rental, in fact it is my house, so you appreciate upgrades that exist in a home and not necessarily in a rental. And as I care for my my 96 year old mother I LOVE that others can enjoy the property.while I am absent And thank you so much for taking care of my home.. I am, and will be at your service at your next visit. I really feel that the guest that are staying at my home are family and even though I cannot visit, I will do anything to make their stay the best. And you must have had a wonderful walk (or bike) and if you want to get to the pier and beach quicker it is only 1.25 miles down Main Street. Biking is the preferred way of travel in HB if you can manage. No parking hassles and you cover much more ground. I have 7 bikes, helmets and bike locks. But I also have a free State Beach parking pass when you want to pack the chairs, cooler and the rest of the beach gear in the garage. Looking forward to next year, Warm Regards, James Mushen

The Perfect California Getaway

I’ll always come back to this house because of the wonderful hospitality the host always provides. The extra amenities that come with the house is also great, took the bikes out for a spin a couple times.

Great Location in a quiet neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Five stars! The home is open and airy with plenty of natural light from rooftop skylights. Master is large and bed is comfortable for a good night's rest. Convenient location close to shopping center and restaurants. Distance from beach is walk-able, or very short drive. Owner is responsive and pleasant to work with. Highly recommend.

Well appointed, Comfortable Bed, Bright and Clean.

  • 4 of 5

Very nice property. Everything functional and clean. Large master bedroom with comfortable bed. Very bright inside with natural light from several skylights. Two very nice outdoor dining options, one covered and one open air. One large indoor dining table adjacent to kitchen. Ample linens and good hot water supply. Very close to shopping and local restaurants. Short easy drive or moderate 1.8 mile walk to beach.

Perfect getaway home

  • 5 of 5

The Dolphin House surpassed our expectations! There was plenty of room for all of 6 of us and never felt cramped. On top of taking advantage of the putting green in the back, we also used the beach towels and beach chairs provided in the garage for our trip to the beach. There are plenty of restaurants close by, as well as an Albertson's for groceries. All in all, it was the perfect place for our trip!
