About The Owner

My wife's family has vacationed on the Outer Banks for years. My first visit was with her shortly after we were married. We decided to purchase a house here and wanted to be close to the restaurants but still in a quiet and peaceful neighborhood with the ocean just one block away.

The Owner purchased this house in 2003

Why The Owner chose Northern Coast & Outer Banks

This home is located in the heart of Kill Devil Hills within easy walking distance of shops and restaurants. It is located one block back from beach road and far enough away from the bypass to maintain some peace and quiet.

What makes this house unique

I enjoy being close to the action in Kill Devil Hills but secluded enough that the traffic noise isn't a problem. The traffic is pretty light in this location and it is a nice area to walk the dog or let the kids ride their bikes.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Overall very nice, comfortable, plenty of room in bedrooms, living and dining area. Kitchen gets a bit small though with just 2 people in working in it,counter top has minor cosmetic damage to the right of the stove. Closet track hardware in upstairs bedroom needs attention-it squeaks-metal on metal when opening/closing closet doors-the plastic part of hardware is missing. Overall it was very good!

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying at Dolphin's Run in September of 2003 a couple of weeks after hurricane Isabel roared through. Even though the hot tub was not working, we had a FANTASTIC time. This was our first time renting a house at the beach and we would recommend Dolphin's Run to anybody. We were impressed with the layout of the house and also how clean and well equipped it was. Even though it was too cool for us to go in the ocean, we had a great time wading, walking on the beach and just relaxing. If I may, I would like to make a "pitch" for the YMCA immenity that came with this rental. Unfortunately, we didn't use it until the night before we left thinking that it would not be a big deal. That was a BIG MISTAKE! The staff was very friendly and helpful and there were plenty of activities for every member of our family! They have a beautiful indoor pool and hot tub. I could go on and on about the resturants,shops, and attractions in the area, but suffice it to say that the next time that we stay at the beach, it will be at Dolphin's Run.
