Guestbook Comment

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at The Dolphin Inn during September. Coming from all over Virginia it was important for us to find a home away from home and that is exactly what we found as it had countless amenities and extras. We have been staying in the Outer Banks for many years in many nice places, but this is the last place we will stay- We loved it!!

Fun birthday weekend celebration!

  • 5 of 5

Not sure I could say enough good things about my experience with Jorge and at Dolphin Inn. Jorge was a great host! He went above and beyond to make sure we had all the info we needed and always reassured he was just a phone call/email/text away. Anytime I reached out to Jorge he always responded quickly. The house its self was also great- Looks just the pictures! I was most impressed with the kitchen. It was stocked with just about anything you could need and had plenty of dishes and silverware. Also, Jorge has gone above and beyond to label and keep everything organized in the house which made it easier for us to find what we needed. And I mean EVERYTHING! Even the movies were organized by ratings. The house is also in a perfect location. Surrounded by only houses, it felt remote. But, everything you needed was only a very short drive away. Overall, the house was very well maintained and helped make for a wonderful long weekend celebrating my husband's birthday! I would 100% recommend this house to a friend and would rebook for future visits without any hesitation.

The Dolphin Inn—It Doesn't Get Any Better!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have utilized VRBO for a number of trips to France and in the United States. We’ve always had good experiences. However, I have to say that our weeklong stay at Jorge & Susannah Herrada’s Dolphin Inn at the OBX of Southern Shores, North Carolina, was no doubt the best experience of all! Not only was the location ideal with its proximity to the beach (as well as the amenity of free membership privileges in a local athletic club!), but the spacious house and grounds had everything you could think of and was beautifully maintained. Check out the description of the Dolphin Inn on VRBO. It’s all true, plus the price was very reasonable for us four couples…perhaps the best deal we’ve ever gotten through VRBO. However, the pleasant surprise was Jorge’s personal, proactive communications and his speedy response to any questions or needs we might have had before or during our stay. We four couples never felt so “cared for” before by the owner of a vacation rental property. It was like we were old friends rather than renters! I give the Herradas and their Dolphin Inn a 10 out of 10. Rent this place! You won't be disappointed.

Our families enjoyed our stay at the Dolphin Inn. We took advantage of everything the house had to offer, especially the playground and pool, as we had 4 under 4 with our crew! Thanks so much!
