About Jorge and Susannah

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.

                                                                    Tammy K.

We highly recommend the Dolphin Inn. The owners were pleasant, honest and were eager to help us make the very best of our vacation. All around comfort.

                                                                    We recommend the High Cotton BBQ and Hurricane Moes. Both were reasonably priced, good service and atmosphere as well as tasty. The Inn is exactly as you see it...no gimmicks. Go and enjoy you will not be sorry.

                                                                    Everything was very well kept and comfortable.

                                                                    Exceeds Expectations

                                                                    Jorge asked me for suggestions to make the home better for future guests. I had none, we were overwhelmed with the thoughtfulness and attention to detail. We had three generations; the youngest being 5 yrs old. She had her own TV with cartoons and was never bored. The supplies were off the charts for a rental home. We not once needed a utensil or tool in the kitchen that was not available and easily located. I had a couple of unusual requests for a late winter / early spring rental and those requests were accommodated. Lastly, rented many large homes before, first time ever we had adequate trash receptacles for a weeks stay. My Granddaughter said "Thanks Gramps for the best vacation ever"!!!!!!!!

                                                                    Fun Girls Weekend at the Dolphin Inn

                                                                    Eva S.

                                                                    After finding out the house we were supposed to rent was flooded out by a broken frozen pipe we had less than a month to find a space that was affordable and nice for our 7 women. The Dolphin Inn caught my eye for the affordability, location and space. I must first let you know Jorge is a pleasure to work with and really cares about his home and his tenants. The home was very comfortable and so were all the beds. The weather wasn’t great that weekend, which we know we are always taking a chance that time of year, however that’s why we want a clean comfortable home to stay in and we found that with this the property. They offer so many amenities such as membership to provide discounts to different activities in the OBX. It’s great to spend time with my girlfriends but it’s even better to spend it at a nice, clean relaxing home. Thank you Jorge!

The house was clean and had everything we needed to relax and enjoy our family. We enjoyed going to the fitness center which is included with the rental, as well as, the discount card to the OBX Bowling alley. The house was within walking distance to the ocean. Jorge was very accommodating and we highly recommend staying at the Dolphin Inn.

                                                                    Comfortable & Relaxing Beach House
