This was our second family trip to the Outer Banks. We chose this house based on the location and the great photos. For the most part the photos were very accurate and the family had a great time. We were a little disappointed by the very dirty AC vents and the water damage in the basement. Also the pool table was a disaster. We made the most of all the other great amenities and would consider this rental again next year.

Our Vacation week Aug 25th thru Sept 1st was a great experience in Corolla at the Dolphin's Delight, plenty of room for everyone, Beds were very comfortable. We enjoyed the accommodations inside and out, the negative side of this house is 1.) No working Ice machine or maker in any of the Refrigerators 2.) The Carpet through out the house is dated. We are considering staying at this same location next year.

The house was fully equipt with all the essentials, even bikes and basketball hoop. It is a true 3 min walk to the beach, the beach access doesnt have many stairs so my 90 year old grandparents were able to make it out there twice. Pet friendly is a SUPER PLUS as my pups love love love the beach. This house had everything for the kitchen and great updated sink and counters. Only thing is the kitchen utensils were a bit worn out, and the baking sheets and cutting boards also have seen their day. Great Fiestaware plates made up for all of that though. the carpet was great at hiding the sand, but a bit worn in places. We had a small bout with plumbing but who can prevent the previous tenants from flushing paper towels... not anyone's fault, was fixed rather quickly. Overall i would stay there again in a heart beat. thank you!

Great location. Pool and hot tub were clean and great to use. Very disappointed in state of house. Property was clean but not maintained very well. Was very worn out. Carpet was very dirty and looked like never replaced. Many items broken or not working (ice maker, phones) Bikes all had flat tires. We could not use the lower level rooms due to the strong mold and musty smell. Crow Nest was biggest disappointment, could not use due to poor state of table. Fire alarm kept going off the last day we were there. For the price we paid, I expected a nicer place. Clear owner has not done any updates to property.

Fit the immediate need of a large group

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.
Dear Jeffrey
Thank you for the review of DOLPHIN'S DELIGHT!
I need to share the huge changes the home went under this off-season to excite you even more!
The kitchen has been remodeled with new cabinets. counter-tops, refrigerator and dishwasher. Wait until you drive up to the home as the exterior and the rails have all been freshly painted.
Beautiful, I must say! Simply beautiful!

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.
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!

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.

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!

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.

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

We had everything we needed and more.

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!:)
