Fit the immediate need of a large group

Leigh M. from cheektowaga, NY recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in Jul, 2017
Our stay here was okay , it definitely met the needs for 13 people , it was also close to a beach access. The property itself was a lot to be desired. It needs some tlc of any type. When we arrived the inside was not clean. We had to clean before we could do anything and that could be because it was not rented the week before. The grass was not cut so we could not use the volleyball at all. It did not get cut until Thursday. The totes from the people who stayed there from 2 weeks prior of their linen was still there. They were left opened and soaked therefore it smelled. Any type of update would help this property. The back door along side has no spring on the door and it slammed the back of the one of the guest back leg it was a little kid and he could not move fast enough, it cut his leg up pretty good . It just appeared that owner does not want to take care of the property. Customers have a lot of choices with different homes to rent why not make this property more desirable so everyone will want to rent this property. I understand it costs a lot of money to take care of a property of this size. Again the property took care of the immediate need

Very nice home, spacious with great pool and hot tub. Excellent view from the upper "crows nest. Six bedrooms were very nice and 3 refrigerators was a big help. Pool was very private- surrounded by shrubs/trees.

dolphin's delight

Brian L. from Everett, PA does not recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in Jun, 2015
the picture on the website is pretty old because the paint is all chipping of off the front of the house. Also the ice maker in the refrigerator upstairs didn't work all week even though we called multiple times and the problem was never fixed. other than that the inside was nice and a short walk to the beach.

Manager Response

Dear Brian, Thank you for reviewing DOLPHIN'S DELIGHT! We apologize about the appliance vendor not reporting to repair the icemaker while you were there. I will gladly discuss this with our Maintenance Director. Also, the exterior of DOLPHIN'S DELIGHT is slated to be re-painted this fall so that the outside looks as amazing as the inside. Please come visit with Carolina Shores Vacation Rentals again in 2016!

House for 13

Sidney S. from Manassas, VA recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in Jul, 2014
A house for this large a group was difficult to find but Dolphins Delight suited the bill. It fit the group well and everyone was happy with the house. There were some obvious maintenance issues, particularly with the exterior paint. Otherwise it was well maintained. Plenty of outside sitting areas and table space to sit our entire group and that was important. As advertised, it was a short walk to the beach, a nice beach. The only real problem was that I was dinged for another $300 after checking in, ostensible for towels and linens when they were included in the contract and I had a paid in full receipt. Also, I was not made aware where to pick up keys for the house and, having arrived after office hours, had to call twice to ascertain where to pick up the keys.

A Guest from Pickerington, OH recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in Jun, 2014
This was our first time at the OBX -- we normally travel further south. After this trip I understand why people come back year after year. We enjoyed having the room for our whole family and the private pool was a plus. We would make the trip again!

Lovely vacation home

Patrice I. from West Lafayette, IN recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in Jul, 2013
Our family has rented Dolphin's Delight for several years and have never been disappointed. This home is well-stocked and provides many extras, such as bicycles, a beach cart, and a lovely gas grill large enough to cook a meal for the entire family without having to eat in shifts. We highly recommend Dolphin's Delight.

Wonderful Whalehead Week

Steven A. from Rahway, NJ recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in Jun, 2013
Perfect house for a family vacation. Finely appointed kitchen with new appliances and every kitchen item you would need. Used the provided bikes every day. The house needed a few minor repairs but nothing impacted the vacation.

From the driveway to the beach access, a 3 minute walk. Location was great!

The house location was great. All the extras in the house where great, pool was nice size. The appliances were very nice and kitchen well stocked. Loved having bikes, nice touch.
The house was a bit smaller than I thought it would be from the pictures. A bit worn down, ie carpet and paint on decking. Otherwise a great house.

Delighted with Dolphins Delight!

A Guest from LINVILLE, NC recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in Jun, 2012
We loved the house! The rental pictures didn't even begin to show how beautiful and confortable the house was. The kitchen had everything we needed for our family of twelve and then some. We loved the trash pick up, bicycles, grill and hot tub. The only thing we could think of that the house did not have was a hammock. The only thing we wished we had in the Corolla area was a fishing pier. Other than that we found the area and home perfect. We had a great time! A special thanks to all the reservation staff and maintenance staff that helped with our vacation!:)
