7 Bedrooms , 7 Bathrooms , Sleeps 17
Southern Shores, Outer Banks, North Carolina
The Dolphin Inn makes it easy to invite the whole family, even the dog! This impressive 7-bedroom beach house in centrally located Southern Shores, Outer Banks, NC, sleeps 17 and is pet-friendly. It's set on a spacious, landscaped property with something for everyone in your group, including a private pool and hot tub.

Beach lovers appreciate the short walk to the beach (1.5 blocks) and the convenience of the Tommy Bahama backpack beach chairs and beach wagon. Playful pirates can’t get enough of the pirate ship playground, spacious yard and whimsical “crews quarters” on the entry-level. Early risers appreciate the horizon ocean sunrise from the quiet nooks on the multi-level decks.

The quieter pace and less crowded beaches in Southern Shores make it easier for everyone to get away from it all, while still enjoying the convenience o...

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.

My wife and I have utilized vacation home rental agencies 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...

The Dolphin Inn provided the perfect stay for our long-awaited family vacation! It housed 16 adults, children, and babies comfortably. The house was in top condition. The swimming pool, hot tub, and sand volleyball court provided hours of "in house", relaxed entertainment, as did the very short walk to the beach. The pirate ship playground was also a novelty attraction....

About the neighbourhood
The Dolphin Inn is conveniently located in Southern Shores, North Carolina 27949. Why drive to the Outer Banks and then have another hour or two in traffic just to get to your vacation home?
