Glad you asked...

When does the pool open/close?

Seasonal pool/hot tub weeks start at the end of April. We usually close the pool in October. Let us know if you'd like the hot tub available off-season. Though our pool is not heated, it has a southern exposure and stays quite comfortable, especially into the fall. 


Is the Dolphin Inn the right house for us?

A great beach rental property is where memories are made. To make sure the Dolphin Inn is the best fit for your getaway, let's talk before you book.


  • Is the Dolphin Inn the right size for your group?

  • Can everyone comfortably access the home?  

  • What unique interests or activities would you like to make a part of your vacation?


We want to bring families together for the best possible experience. If the Dolphin Inn is not a good fit, we’ll be glad to point you in the right direction.
