About Jill

We live in northern Virginia and first visited the Carolina Beach area several years ago. We fell in love with the crystalline water, incredible Carolina blue skies, perfect weather, and the historic and hip city of Wilmington. We were fortunate to be able to find this amazing property and purchased it in the spring of 2013. We are enjoying spending time at the beach with friends and family and adding some personal touches for our guests' enjoyment.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We just returned from the beach and wanted everyone to know what a great place this was for a large family group. We took all of our children(3), spouses(3), and 4 grandchildren under 31/2 and had ample room for everyone. The kitchen - family room area was very large and for once we were not on top of each other. The large dining room table was great for meals and held all of us. Having all the bathrooms was great for getting everyone ready at once. Also, liked the 2 floors of living area for when I needed to sneak away from the children for 10 minutes of quiet! Thanks for making our vacation one of many memories. See you next year!

Great Beach House

  • 4 of 5

Multi- generation vacation week at the beach that everyone enjoyed. Lots of space, plenty of bathrooms and great porches with view of beach. The house has open concept kitchen, dinning room and den which makes it a pleasure to cook a meal for the entire family and still feel included with "all the activities". Thank you for sharing your beach house with our family. We plan to return next year.

Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time visiting Carolina Beach and Dolphin Watch. The purpose of the trip was a girl's getaway and the house was a perfect fit. The main floor has three bedrooms, a very spacious living room and updated kitchen. There is a big table for dining and a large veranda with another large table. The top floor has a master and one additional bedroom both with their own bathrooms. We found the house very clean with everything we needed for a long weekend away. The walk to the beach is super quick and there is an outdoor shower for rinsing sand from feet and beach chairs. We are beach lovers so we never used the pool but it was right next door. We have already talked about renting this house again. Occasionally foot steps could be heard when on the top floor however we didn't find it bothersome. More importantly, the ocean can be heard while snoozing in the Master BR, priceless!

Our Australian niece, her husband, and three young children (4,6,8) had a splendid time (April 2-6) at the magnificent Dolphin Watch. The family had arrived from Melbourne a week earlier for a two week stay in North Carolina. They were enthralled with the facility and the location. We were joined by daughter, son-in-law, and young child (4) from nearby Wilmington. The facility gives new meaning to elegance, comfort, and ease of transition. It is wonderfully equipped, spacious, welcoming - and easy access to the beach, proximity to shops (a nice walk by street or the beach), all made for a very pleasant stay. An Easter Egg hunt for the children (and some of the adults -:) was very easy and effective given the number of places to "hide" goodies. We were also fortunate to have stunning sun and moon rises, which added brilliantly to the already amazing vistas from the various balconies. When the opportunity arises we will certainly return and in the meantime highly recommend Dolphin Watch to others.

Thanksgiving at the beach

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had the time of our lives Thanksgiving at Dolphin Watch. The location directly on the beach is wonderful. The place is luxurious and well maintained. The spacious layout gave us enough room so that even though there were a lot of us, we were all quite comfortable. I could watch the sunrise from the master bedroom that opened to a private balcony. The kitchen was well-equipped for our Thanksgiving dinner preparation. The huge dining table was great for our holiday spread.

There was plenty for everyone to do. We played games and watched movies at night. We walked and rode bikes on the beach. The whole family enjoyed football and Frisbee on the beach. The kids were able to rent surfboards and wetsuits to explore surfing. There were great local restaurants near by.

I would recommend this vacation property to everyone.

A Classy and Comfortable Stay at the Beach

  • 5 of 5

I'm usually expecting a bit of "shabby" when I go to the beach. This place was such a pleasant surprise! It had everything we like: nice kitchen, large open spaces, fantastic views, comfortable beds, cozy living room, pretty wood floors. The beach was a few steps away and very peaceful. The walks to town were very pleasant, both on the beach or on the road. We even rode bikes on the beach! Truly lovely. I'll go back!
