Hello and thanks for considering the “Dolphin House” for your next Huntington Beach stay and if you have not done so already, (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) “Dolphin House Huntington Beach” for a video tour.

We completely renovated the Dolphin House inside and out and opened in November 2016. Since then we have hosted many lovely guests, perhaps you have read some of their reviews. We believe that the vast majority of visitors to Huntington Beach are extremely thoughtful and kind people, but on the advice of long time (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) owners and their attorneys, we created a rental agreement and list of “House Rules” to safeguard the “Dolphin House” from guests that may not be as considerate as you.

So please don’t be offended when we ask you to review these documents and either take a photo or scan back to us these pages plus a copy of the primary renters’ driver’s license.

1. The list, age and contact information of the adults in the Rental Party.
2. Credit Card information, if applicable. If you book directly through (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN), Home Away, Trip Advisor, Air BnB , we don’t need you credit card info.
3. The signature page, print and sign your name.
4. Copy or photo of the primary renter’s driver’s license.

My email is (EMAIL HIDDEN) to text or call me ((PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN).

If we do not receive these at least 2 weeks prior to your stay, your reservation may be cancelled. Please call me if you have any questions.

I apologize for the hassle, and I think that you, your friends and family will find the “Dolphin House” worthy of the effort. We hope so.

Thanks again, safe travels and see you soon,

James Mushen

The owner was very friendly & accommodating during booking and check-in. We were moving from another house nearby & he let us move in some of our items the night before. That was very helpful. The house is advertised as both "perfect ... for family" and "privacy in a quiet neighborhood", but our family didn't have this experience. The house has multiple cameras outside (front, back, side). A couple days into our stay, the owner texted us: "every couple days I check the security cameras ... just now looks like the kids are having fun on the putting green ... You may want to take them to a park." The kids were simply running around the backyard playing. The owner texted us again a couple days later that he "just checked the backyard" & was watching the kids play again. They were outside for less than 5 min. After the second text, we felt like we were being watched & the kids couldn't play outside. We had 2 days remaining on our pre-paid reservations but left early because we didn't feel comfortable staying in the house.

Response from James:
This house may not be suitable for small children, 1 or 2 years of age as described on Airbnb, because the house has features that can be easily damaged by poorly supervised children, as these 2 children were. My neighbors called me because of the noise as well. I gave this family a favorable review but needed to respond. If you would find the reviews, of this property on Home away, all 5star, many comments are about home clean the property is.
