Loved our stay here! Everything we needed was already in the house. Grace includes a binder full of recommendations and specifics about attractions, how to get to the beach. She is prompt in her communications for any questions you have. We had a great vacation.

Grace was wonderful to work with throughout the process. My family and I loved the house and the close walk to the beach. The toys inside and out were great for my kids and the house had everything we needed for the vacation. We'll be back! As a side note, St. Waves Seafood - just down the road - had...

We love staying at the Blue Dolphin. It's always clean and taken care of. We've stayed at a lot of beach houses over the years and this one is definitely our favorite. Perfect for your family with kids. They have stocked it with toys, videos, games, etc.

About the neighbourhood
The home is located in a quiet neighborhood on lovely Hatteras Island. Enjoy the comfortable Tri-Village area, with it's quaint shops and quiet atmosphere. Life here is much slower paced so be prepared to unwind. The home has many of the amenities of modern living yet the pace of life on Hatteras Island is friendly but notably slower.

The proximity to the ocean is wonderful. Once you arrive at the private beach path, the walk across the dunes is amazing - the wildlife peeping out of the dunes is enjoyable for both kids and adults alike (many times we have seen deer munching on the greenery on the dunes). When arriving at the beach, you are met with an expanse of beach good for either beach volleyball, or simply digging a large sandcastle. The ocean temperatures are notably warmer th...

How to get there
A car is necessary on the island. There is a ferry to Ocracoke Island to the south. Closest airport is Norfolk, which is a 2 hour drive north of the home.

Pay very close attention to the speed limits when on the island and in the surrounding vicinity. The North Carolina police are VERY stringent and will give out tickets to 'out of towners' caught speeding or not obeying the local traffic laws.
