3 Dolphins offers everything you need to enjoy a luxury beach vacation in Wrightsville Beach.
From the three levels of oceanfront decks, you can watch the sunrise over the Atlantic Ocean in the morning and enjoy a relaxing and comforting ocean breeze in the afternoon. The two hammocks on the covered deck are perfect for reading a book or taking a nap after a sun filled day on the beach. This superior vacation home offers something not found at many, a large back yard leading to private beach access.
Once inside 3 Dolphins you'll fall in love with the beach décor throughout the house that will truly enhance your vacation. From the large open floor plan in the main living area to each bedroom being a suite with its own bath, you'll find 3 Dolphins will not only meet but will exceed your expectations.
On the entry level there are three bedrooms along with a family/kids room. The first bedroom has two twins each with a trundle, the second a twin bunk plus access to its own deck. The third and largest bedroom has a queen and a full size bed, with ocean views and direct access to the lower oceanfront deck which spans across the entire ocean side of the house. You may also access the oceanfront deck from the family/kids room.
On the next level you will be swept away by the large open floor plan. Standing in the bright and airy gourmet kitchen with stainless steel appliances, you can look out beyond the living and dining room and see the ocean through the floor to ceiling windows and sliding glass doors. Gather for a meal or game night at the large dining room table. Want to be a little less formal, sit down to a light meal or snack at the granite topped island in the kitchen with wrap around seating for six. Relax in the living room and watch a movie or show on the HD flat screen TV with a deluxe sound system. From the main living area you can access the second level deck which also spans the entire ocean side of the house. On this level you will also find a king bedroom suite with access to 2 private decks, not facing the ocean.
Proceeding to the top floor you will find a king master bedroom suite with outstanding panoramic ocean views from both inside and out on the private deck. Picture yourself having breakfast in bed as you watch the sunrise over the ocean. Spectacular! Also on this level is an additional bedroom suite with two full sized beds.

"Breathtaking views and tons of living space and rooms!! Won’t disappoint."
"This house is the best house we have rented in our twenty plus years of renting at various beaches! Excellent location, well stocked, very clean, every thing you would want for a beach rental (chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, bikes) there is plenty of room for everyone in a large group! Truly a wonderful rental and we will be renting again!!!"
"very good - love 3 dolphins. There were a number of bedside table bulbs that were burned out - otherwise, terrific!"
"Great House. Nice to see the large ice maker 3/4 full when we arrived. "
"great house, great location. Was a wonderful fun filled week with family and friends. House was perfect, clean and comfortable."
"The house was beautiful. Had the amenities we needed including the Atlantic Ocean in the backyard! :) Strongly recommend 3 Dolphins if you have a large group. "
"We had a wonderful relaxing time at beautiful Wrightsville Beach, staying in a lovely spacious home near the center of town, so we were within walking distance of restaurants, etc."
"We rented 3 Dolphins for a family reunion/celebration of our 50th wedding anniversary. We found more than ample accomodations for 12 attendees. The location is perfect, with views of both the ocean and Banks Channel from the several balconies. The kitchen was very well stocked with appliances, service wear and utensils."
"We were a party of 12 staying in Wrightsville for a big birthday celebration. Everyone loved the house. Excellent location, well designed and furnished, lovely ocean views, well-stocked kitchen. One person did get stuck in the elevator but Intracoastal was immediately responsive, getting an elevator repairman there on a Saturday evening of a holiday weekend! Everyone wants to come back next year. One of our guests was so impressed, they tried to reserve the house in upcoming month,but it was unavailable."
"As usual, our stay in this vacation home was superior in all respects."
"We had a full house with many extended family members. 3 Dolphins lived up to it's name (we saw the dolphins). The house was very comfortable and met all of our expectations. What a pleasant surprise! I was extremely pleased with our house selection and the depictions of the property online. Thank you for a fun vacation location, we do plan on returning. The dedicated Ice machine is an awesome addition for a large group. Nana and Papa truly enjoyed walking to church 2 houses away, plus a very well kept street. We also enjoyed walking to Roberts grocery instead of getting in the car to get incidentals. Great location and a gorgeous Beach."
"We have two college-age sons (NC State and UNCW) who had Fall Break straddling over a weekend in October, but different weekdays of course. I chose this house because I wanted to have a large home right on the water, have a great location where everyone could walk to everything and we could hang out on multiple decks to enjoy the ocean. It definitely delivered! It was also great in the fact that when the kids got sick of us (or we got sick of them) they had their own space on the bottom floor and we could hang on the middle floor, so perfect for multigenerational entertaining. I had to do a lot of cooking for the boys and the friends that would spontaneously show up at meal time, and other than people not being able to figure out how to use the microwave to make their midnight popcorn, the kitchen was easy to cook in. I would definitely recommend for a large group; we will be back. The house was done very well and is in great condition. Also, if you're thinking of coming this time of year (early October), its great."
"Home was amazing. We loved it and plan to book it again for next year. "
"We had a tremendous weekend at the 3 Dolphins. The place was beautiful and in a perfect location right on the beach."
"Lovely location and good lay out. Home is a bit tired with a number of things needing fixing or unable to use because broken. Delayed response by rental company to fix issues. "
8/1 This is one of our most rented properties, so things do need replacing quite frequently. This owner is always quick to respond to guest feedback, I know they will be doing work this off season. We look forward to having this guest again! CMM
"Great location, clean, beautiful home. Great access to beach and dining options in Wrightsville Area"
"Great house! Great location for Wrightsville beach. Was perfect for our family group of 11. Enjoyed the porches- great view of ocean and the flotilla/ fireworks.
Kitchen appliances need work- dishwasher did not clean and the control panel did not work. The microwave was hard to use and could only use for 30 second increments. Den furniture needs to be REPLACED- very uncomfortable and messy (feathers everywhere). Beds were very comfortable. "
12/20 Will make a note to maintenance about the dishwasher, microwave, and furniture. Glad they enjoyed the stay and the unit, this is an amazing house! CMM
"The house was beautiful. Lots of balconies so people could escape to isolation. The kids had loads of room to play. Ping pong was enjoyed by all."
"We had a wonderful time as always. We have been visiting Wrightsville Beach for more than 25 years and feel its an extension of home for us. We have been greatly satisfied with 3 Dolphins and will continue to rent this property for years to come as long as it remains on the rental listing. "
"The bathrooms were not clean. The dishes were not clean The ice machine was broken. The door on 3rd floor was broken . The house itself was great as was the location. The cushions were soiled. "
We are always disappointed when a guest doesn't have a great vacation. The maintenance issues were addressed while the guest was here. The cushions have been recovered, and the cleaning issues have been addressed. CMM
"This is a premier property in a premier beach vacation area. It has its own beach access, is quiet, is in walking distance of restaurants and shops, and is an excellent property for a family beach vacation."
"Cockroaches in beds
Serious mold in master bathroom
Broken: bed frame in master bed, oven vent, blender, toaster, outdoor/indoor speaker system
Listed but not in house: pool table, putting green, rooms listed have been changed from what is currently in the house"
So sorry to see this guest had difficulty. Everything on the website accurately reflects in the home, we are sorry for any confusion this guest experienced. We will be sure to check on the mold, bed frame, and small appliances. CMM
"It was very very nice but I would suggest taking a look at the sofas and chairs in the living area. They were pretty dirty at the start. Perhaps they are slipcovers and can be washed. It would also be helpful if we had some granite cleaner to use during the week. Those countertops were difficult to clean off with just a sponge or towel. My last suggestion is to have more hooks in the bathrooms and bedrooms for bath towels, night clothes, wet bathing suits, etc. Just a few small items that would be helpful given the weekly rate! A real positive was the house was available by 3 o'clock which is SO fabulous after a long drive. Thank you for everything."
So glad they enjoyed their stay, and thank you for the feedback! We will be sure to look into the cleaning and the furniture, and will discuss the bathrooms/bedroom hooks with the owners. CMM
"Problems with showerheads, water pressure, location of correct pier. Furniture off kitchen is nasty and uncomfortable. No useable ping pong table. Putting green is not a putting green as there is no hole to try and putt the golf ball into, etc. etc."
So sorry this guest felt there was mis-information. There unfortunately is no putting green, that is just the back yard. There is a ping pong table in the garage with an array of other amenities. We also have ensure the pier is now clearly labeled. Hope to have them again and show them a better experience! CMM
"The rental was more than nice. Property management company was helpful and courteous. The weather was great. Thank you for a great vacation."
"The house itself was fine, large and spacious for our family. Furniture was tired and rickety. Chairs were unstable and falling apart (Lots of big boys in our group). The grill was a fire hazard and unusable for safety reasons. We had very little toilet paper, kleenex or paper towels and had to run out and purchase all of that upon arrival. We rent our house out in Colorado and all of the amenities are included. My husband got out the windex to clean all the salt off the windows so that we could have a clear view of the ocean. For the amount of money we spent for the rental (big bucks$$$$), we were expecting a little more TLC than we received."
We always have to see when a guest is disappointed. All items that are supplied are listed in our contract, I'm sorry if that was not clear before their arrival. We have addressed the grill situation and are always happy to come do things like reclean windows if we are notified. Look forward to having this guest again and showing them a great vacation!
"The house is a great rental. We can not wait to go back in the summer. Unfortunately the rental company did not clean the house, left doors open, and shorted us sets of sheets and the air broke. They were unresponsive to fixing any of this until the 5th phone call. I hope things are better when their busy time comes around. "
So sorry this guest had difficulty! They were calling the wrong office line, so we unfortunately did not receive any of their messages. They ordered linens themselves, and ordered the wrong amount. We got the right items out, and once we got in touch with them on the proper line we got all items resolved. Look forward to having them again, and showing them a great experience!
"This wonderful house is located near all the amenities of Wrightsville Beach, NC, but even though there are other houses close by, it is quiet and secluded in effect. Each bedroom has unique features (a private porch, a unique bath, a fourth floor view
of the ocean and beach etc.). The kitchen and dining area are well equipped to accommodate good eating. The house is located on the ocean and within walking distance of several really good restaurants. It has a pier with a gazebo on the sound side that is
wonderful for boating and viewing sunsets. The house itself is very comfortable, well furnished, and cool in the summer heat. The elevator provides easy access for anyone to all the house's living levels."
