Suitability

  • Minimum Age Limit For Renters
  • Children Welcome:

    As our own kids, who are now teens, have grown up at the Dolphin Inn, we have set up the house with kids of all ages in mind. The kids will love the pirate ship--and you'll appreciate it's location in the private back yard. You'll find everything from a high chair and pack-n'-play to cheerful plastic kid-sized dinnerware, beach toys and even a wide range of family friendly DVD's and board games....moreless

  • Non Smoking Only
  • Pets Considered:

    A mature dog is welcome inside the Dolphin Inn ($95 pet fee). While you're in the backyard, we have a fenced in dog-kennel area if you'd like to have your dog off-leash. Please don't leave your dog in the kennel outside alone for extended periods as what may start off as a cool shaded spot under the oak tree can get very hot as the sun shifts....moreless
