About The Property

Spend time in one of the most magical places on the Intracoastal Waterway! This cozy waterfront cottage offers a taste of vintage living with all the modern amenities you’ll want for your vacation. Dolphin Cove sits just 2 blocks from Ocean Isle Beach, and features its own private pier and floating dock with 2 boat slips–Perfect access for deep water boats, kayaks, small crafts, jet skis and fishing. Nestled on a 2-acre point with the Waterway to the south and Little Field Slough to the west, this spot guarantees 180 degrees of unparalleled “world class” water views! Spend time doing as little, or as much, as your heart desires. Start the morning with the sunrise on the pier. Eat breakfast on the large deck or inside the screened porch shaded by ancient live oaks, and watch trawlers, sailboats, and fishermen making their way out to sea. Bring your fishing gear— excellent fishing for a variety of species from the pier! NOTE: This property requires a $300 Security Deposit Hold and a Separate Traveler Agreement. More info below, and in the house rules.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY: "Sitting on the deck looking out at the dolphins playing in the Intracoastal Waterway, I forgot for a minute that we were less than 1 mile from parks, shops, Lowes Foods, Publix, surf shops, boat launches, and more..." -Guest, Nov 2021 "It was the first time I've ever seen a dolphin in real life!**" -Guest, Jan 2022 OTHER INFO: -Parking for up to 3 vehicles -Room for 1 boat trailer -Nearby available rentals: boats, kayaks, canoes, bikes, golf carts, fishing gear, ATVs, and more!

The road coming into the property is recognized as being one of the most beautiful roads in North Carolina, with a canopy of live oak trees dripping with Spanish Moss. Gause Landing is the site of the famous "George Washington Tree," where our nation's first president visited and vacationed in the 1790s, and you'll drive by it on the way in and out. The road is narrow and curvy, and you'll wish all roads were that beautiful. OTHER THINGS TO NOTE: Yes, we advertise that this home "Sleeps 8," and it definitely can and does. 2 queen beds, 1 full bed, and a sleeper sofa. However, please keep in mind that the home has one bathroom, and it's only about 1179 square feet total. This home is a "cottage," and if 8 fully grown adults showed up for a week with 8 fully grown suitcases, then it will absolutely be a little cramped. The ideal amount of humans for this size space is probably 6, but it will fit 8, especially if some of those people are not fully grown adults. Pet fees are $50 per dog, and if your OTA does not support multiple pet fees, we will collect it separately before check-in. NO PUPPIES, Pit bulls, or Rottweilers. Red Carpet Rental Agreement: After booking, we will send you a Red Carpet Rental Agreement to sign to complete your reservation. It's a no-nonsense Agreement that protects the guest, host, and the property, and is allowed within the policies and guidelines of all travel booking platforms. The Agreement will come to you as a link, and we require all guests to sign it to rent any of our properties, no matter where the reservation came from. "Pack 'n Play" (Travel Crib) available by request, and must be requested at least 48 hours prior to check-in.
