Guest Book - Some Kids Comments
I was here and I’m having the best time of my young life. So far this week is the best thing I ever did.
This place is really cool. I really like the pool and the hot tub. Also I really like the big TV in the room by the kitchen. - Age 10.
This is a really nice place. I love the pool, the hot tub, the kitchen and living room on the third floor. The volleyball court, the bathroom on the staircase, the amazing view, and the beach just down the block. I love it because it is so different from where I live and my house. Dolphin Inn is a very, very nice house. Thanks. PS I had a great time doing other things too! - Age 11.
I had a super time! Especially with my mom, dad, and grandpa and grandma. Though we’re leaving tomorrow, I have a feeling we’re coming back. - Age 8.

Jorge & Susannah, Thank you so much for letting us share your home! It is very lovely and accommodating. We had a wonderful week of fun and memories. We had multiple families with children and they loved the pool and the sand in the volleyball court! Our dog Otis (Black Lab) was very thankful for the kennel. Thanks again and we hope to come back again!
The occasion was a “significant” birthday, a reason to unite the family in one location for a few days of love, laughter and catching up with each other. The result is a lifetime of memories. For some it was seeing the ocean for the first time to watch in awe a school of dolphins, to laugh & run from jelly fish. To recall favorite childhood memories and create new ones. Most importantly for me it was the first evening when I looked down the dinner table and saw all the people I love in good health and good cheer gathered together. The beauty of the Outer Banks has been captured in your beautiful home and the design and amenities make it the perfect home for sharing meals, swimming and late night whispers. Thank you for your hospitality. God Bless you and your family with continued health and love.
Dear Jorge and Susannah, This is a most wonderfully designed home … especially for the multi-generational family that we are! Rob and I have four adult children with spouses and three grandchildren who all enjoyed each other’s company. This home lends itself to quality time, both with others and alone! :) Your kitchen, dining, living area is well-equipped and user friendly! We ate “in” every night and found everything we needed. The pool was clean and refreshing and the grandchildren loved the pirate playhouse! Thank you for allowing us to visit this beautiful homestead! Reading, PA
So … there are a bunch of guys who met each other 15 years ago in college. Everyone lives in different states and countries now. The guys now have wives and girfriends. The guys now have toddlers and babies on the way. But they are a tight group, these men from Villanova. We had a week vacation in the Outer Banks – Eleven of us … We played in the pool, slept on the beach, ate dinners together around the table every night & went out for red wine, every night. We jammed to music, read trashy magazines, played golf, ran the dunes and searched for wild horses. But most of all, we spent time together, we laughed. We created bonds, pictures & quotes. We made memories. Until next year … Thank you for sharing your home with us.
This is the end of our all too short week’s holiday –Our family reunion. It included California, Maryland, New York, and Switzerland family members. We were blessed with great weather, the kids (and grown-ups) were thrilled with the beautiful beach. Not to mention the well-used pool! Good company, great meals and lots of fun for all.
Jorge & Susannah, Thank you so much for the use of the Dolphin Inn! My family had a great time here in the Outer Banks! The comfort of your home really brought our extended family together. Thank you so much! NJ.
Jorge & Susannah, Thanks for letting us share your home! The weather was great all week – except for the smoke that occasionally drifted from Roanoke Island. We can’t wait to come back again next year – the house was perfect for our size family. We enjoyed many of the amenities such as volleyball, swimming, hot tub, basketball, & badminton. The beach chairs were a surprise bonus that got used daily. Thanks again – We’ll see you next year!! Kearneysville & Morgantown, WV and Fayetteville, NC.

Dear Jorge & Susannah, Great accommodation for a large extended family – kitchen marvelously well equipped!

Thank you both for sharing your lovely OBX house with us. PS The guide is very well done – we enjoyed it a lot.

I had the best time ever. It was wonderful to stay in your beautiful house. You house is huge. I love the pool and the hot tub :) They are great. The beach was very fun too. Thanks for letting us be here.
Having a wonderful time in rental. Look forward to coming back in 2011.
Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with our family. We all had a great vacation. There was plenty of room for all and the amenities make traveling so much easier. The kitchen was fully stocked and functional for the adults and the movie selection was great for the kids. We spent countless hours on the volleyball court and the Pirate Ship was a hit with our toddler. The weather was great compared to home in Vermont where it was snowing!! We loved our time on the OBX and hope to return someday.
This was a multi-family vacation and we were blessed with this large comfortable home and hot (80 – 89 degree) weather. The kids “lived” in the play room and pool and the adults spent our afternoons on the second floor veranda! Dinners and breakfasts around the large table were happy moments. We thank the Herrada’s for sharing their home with us. – Michigan.
We are so thankful for our time at the Dolphin Inn. This house is so beautiful and has the perfect amenities. We had such a fabulous and relaxing week – and enjoyed ourselves more than I could tell you. Thank you for sharing this gift with us!! - Virginia.
We stayed for a week in your beautiful home. A wonderful time was had by all. This was our “combined family” vacation. Thank you for allowing us to use your home. We would like to come back. - New Jersey.
Thank you so much for a great week at your home for a large group. Maybe, someday we will return.
Thanks for a great week. We love the house, pool and hot tub. It was great to be close to all there was to see and do. We had a great time fishing!! We went to a play about the Lost Colony that was excellent. The Dolphin Inn Guide was extremely useful. Thanks again.
Thank you for the lovely week. We had a great time at the beach and on the bike trails. We spent time seeing the local attractions such as Kitty Hawk and Roanoke Island. The location here is great for sightseeing and the beach. We appreciate all the amenities in the house as well as how clean everything was. We will recommend this to our friends. – New York and Virginia.
We have enjoyed our stay here at this house. We appreciate all the extra items that are kept here. This was the first time my three children have visited the ocean and this has been the best vacation so far. We came here with my mom, step dad, aunt, uncle, memaw and great aunt. Everyone was impressed with the house and how close everything is. Thank you.
Our family really enjoyed themselves. We look forward to our next stay. Thank you.
We had another great vacation at the Dolphin Inn. This year we brought a new addition, a 7 week old son. The hot tub was great and the weather was wonderful. We will be back again next year. Thanks. – New York.
We had a brilliant time. The kids were entertained 24/7 and constantly outside digging fortresses, climbing trees, conquering pirates and beating us at volleyball! There was no need for TV!! We will definitely come again. We shared some very memorable moments. - Virginia.
