About Jorge and Susannah Herrada
Though we love to travel the world, our best memories happen at the Dolphin Inn. We bought the house when our kids still believed in the magic of pirates and princesses. These days, they don't ask us to play make believe on the Dolphin Inn's pirate ship playground. Still, a little magic happens when we're at the Dolphin Inn. Maybe it's the salt air or the slow pace, but we seem to laugh more. The kids linger longer at the table. They go for walks with us. We find time to play games, tell stories and rewatch favorite movies. It's a special place to our family. Maybe that's why we love to share it with other families. We hope we can help your family make memories at the Dolphin Inn.

What a welcoming, comfortable beach house for our family of eleven, including four under five! Cousins delighted in challenging their muscles and minds in imagination play on the private pirate ship playground.
The home is pleasant, comfortable, with many thoughtful entertainment offerings.
Pool, hot tub, convenient walk to the beach. Close enough to take toddlers back and forth multiple times in a day.
Plenty of room for everyone
My family and friends just returned from vacationing at the Dolphin Inn and all had the best time. We were four families with 10 kids in total ranging from 9 months to teenager and never did we feel cramped. The house was fully stocked with so many extras from the kitchen to the high chair and playpen and all of the beach equipment. There also was plenty of entertainment for all ages. When we weren’t enjoying the beach (within walking distance) we spent time in the pool and hot tub. On the rainy day there were board games, movies and a Wii in the house for use. We were sad that we never got to play that game of volleyball (yes there’s one in the yard) but the week flew by so quickly. The owner Jorge was super helpful with an abundance of information and recommendations from the point of reservation until arrival. He also made us feel welcomed and was easily accessible for questions during our stay, which we really did not have any because everything was thoroughly outlined in the house manual and labeled throughout the house. I definitely recommend staying at the Dolphin Inn while staying in the Outer Banks.
Great Family Experience!
We did a lot of searching and the Dolphin Inn seemed to best fit our large families needs, it did not disappoint! Booking was extremely smooth, Jorge was very helpful and informative! Property was beautiful and pool and hot tub was amazing. It was large enough for our huge family. House is close enough to everything . Very short walk to beach! We made some great family memories and would definitely rent again!!
Outer Banks Bliss
The Dolphin Inn was more than my family could have hoped for! What an amazing beach house, and more importantly, what an amazing host! The owner of the house, Jorge, could not have been more accommodating. He always replied to my messages right away and was very kind and pleasant to talk to. I have never had an easier time with a property host. Thank you, Jorge!
My entire family and my husbands entire family (16 people all in all, including a handful of kids) comfortably stayed at the Dolphin Inn for our first ever vacation together. It was a tremendous success and it's safe to say that staying here was a huge factor. Everyone had their own space and there was always a part of the house and property that was being used by someone. We spent tons of time at the beach, which was only a short walk away, and took great pleasure in using the plethora of beach chairs provided by the house. When we weren't at the beach, we were lounging by the pool or soaking in the hot tub. We even had some pretty epic family volleyball games while the kids played in the awesome wooden playground that is right next to the volleyball court. The main living space is inviting and fit us all comfortably, weather we were sitting around the sofa watching tv or using the large dining table for group dinners.
The area that the Dolphin Inn is located is such a gem. It's close by to all the stores you could want, but in a much more quiet and calm strip of the Outer Banks. So Peaceful!! We loved staying here! If you are considering this house for your next beach vacation, don't hesitate! Book it! :)
60th Birthday Family Vacation
Our family 8 adults and 2 children spent a week at Dolphin Inn. Jorge was so helpful in planning our trip and activities for my husbands 60th. The house was clean well supplied. Gourmet kitchen. Large pool and hot tub. Minutes to the beach and close to everything. We used the discounts to the golf course and gym. I would highly recommend
