Interaction with guests
We love to talk to guests. New to the Outer Banks? Trying to find a house with the right amenities? Give us a call. We'll sort out your questions about the area, booking process and house details. Feel free to share our contact info with your group, especially for specific things like kitchen, beach, and baby/kid gear. After making the final payment, you’ll receive the door access code. We often keep in touch on check-in day, just in case the house is ready early. We want you to have a hassle-free week, so we never mind a call, even for small things like figuring out the TV remote or finding the best family-friendly happy hour. We appreciate receiving damage or repairs reports in a timely manner so we can secure a qualified vendor.

About the neighborhood
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?

Since all beach parking in Southern Shores is permit only, the beaches are enjoyed by owners and their guests. There are no high...
Getting around

Our slightly altered Saturday check-in/check-out time, at 9 AM and 3PM, is engineered to help guests with an easier check-in. An earlier check-out means that the house is cleaned sooner and ready for the next guests to start vacation just a little earlier!
