Bed Configuration: Bedroom 1: King | Bedroom 2: King | Bedroom 3: Queen | Den: Queen Sleeper Sofa
This beach front bungalow has it all! Nothing between you and the beach so take ten giant steps (Mother, may I?) and dip your toes in the Gulf of Mexico. Large master bedroom, with king bed and flat screen TV, has an incredible view of the Gulf-front deck. The master bath has a double sink vanity, large garden tub and separate shower. The bedrooms on the opposite side of the house share a large bathroom. One has a queen size bed, flat screen TV and a spectacular view of the Gulf and the 3rd bedroom has a king size bed and flat screen TV.
This wonderfully equipped kitchen is open to the great room and not only has an unbelievable view of the Gulf, but also has a beautiful view of the Sound from the kitchen window. There are plenty of cabinets and a large bar for food prep plus seating for 4. A huge pantry and a laundry room just off the kitchen. The main table has seating for 8, perfect for family meals. The great room has French doors leading to the Gulf porch with a commanding view of the beach and water. There’s plenty of seating, including two sofas and recliners. One of the sofas is a queen sleeper. A 55” flat screen TV is centrally located in the great room so that it is easily viewed from the kitchen and dining area.
Out on the porch, you’ll find the perfect place to get a tan, read a book, and watch the perfect sunset. And sometimes you’ll even be lucky enough to spot the dolphins.

This was an excellent place to relax. If you like a natural beachfront view to relax, this is the place for you. The place was clean and was very enjoyable. There are a couple of rigs you can see from the beach in the gulf but does not take away from the beautiful beach.

This was our first experience with a beach rental. We have previously only stayed in hotels. We are hooked! The house was clean and well equipped. The pictures were quite representative of the house. We brought the dog and were very pleased to see the leash laws were generally well respected (our dog is not friendly with other dogs, so loose dogs are a problem). We were also very happy to see gates on the deck landing, which allowed the dog to be off leash, but safe, on that wonderful deck.

This home has seen better days. floor in bad condition soft and spongy in spots. Wi-Fi weak to not on 50% of the time we stayed. deck gates broken had to tie closed, we have dogs.
There were 5 different remote controls to TV in master bedroom. Kitchen was ill equipped. drinking glass with mildew in bottom, cooking pots were dirty. Old food in cabinets. no safety grab bars in bathroom. broken mirror in master bath. Overall not what you would expect in a luxury vacation rental more like a fish camp worn out rental. decks should be replaced kitchen is not well equipped.

Had a wonderful time! Great location. Island resort was great to work with very friendly staff. Highly recommend to anyone
To get your groceries and supplies BEFORE you get to the island or even to Greers...very high priced

"Beachside" had everything we needed for a great week at the beach.Property manager provided excellent service; the A/C went out one day and it was fixed the same day. We enjoyed Fort Gaines and taking the ferry across Mobile Bay. We also enjoyed at "Pirate's Bar and Grill" a circular-shaped restaurant near the golf course. We would definitely recommend Dauphin Island and this house to friends and family.

The house is about 120 ft. from the beach. It’s beautifully decorated with a huge deck. The deck is a bit weathered but we enjoyed every evening out there. The spacious kitchen is well stocked with utensils and cookware. Bring a few plastic containers for left overs. We left a couple there. The ice maker is a bit slow. The master suite is very spacious. We absolutely loved our vacation to celebrate my parents 70th anniversary! I loved this house and the island! I recommend Skinners and Islanders for good food.

You cannot beat the location and view from this property. Directly on the beach, have your coffee while listening to the waves and watching the dolphins swim by. We saw dolphins every day during our visit.
On the downside, I would recommend that the owner upgrade kitchen tools. Also providing some additional serving bowls and platters would be helpful.

Was a bit disappointed. The new house in front of Beachside does take up a LOT of the view and when the families from that house spill out into my direct view of Gulf, well, that's no fun either! Also, if the property (Beachside) is up for sale, which it currently is, then you need to let renters know that people will be coming in and out on their dime. I didn't appreciate, after a LONG drive, that I was asked to have people walk thru. I allowed first ones, but then was asked AGAIN... almost pushing us out the door so the next people could look at it! Checkout is at 10 a.m. but the people wanted to look at it at 9 a.m.!!! Yes, we left early due to subtropical storm, but that is beside the point! I pay a LOT of money for me, to have my peace for a week. This time I had a walk thru, a termite guy, and a request for another walk thru - DURING MY RENTAL TIME!!! And you need a new shower curtain liner in the master bath or soak it in bleach! I am marking I'd not recommend to a friend as it is a nice house overall, but with this experience... Just not thrilled with it as much as I was first time I rented it... And if I do return to Dauphin Island, I will probably look for something else.

This was our second stay at this property. As expected everything was great.
Stacy A.on 03/24/2018
Absolutely loved the location and the cleanliness of this home. The only thing that would improve would be to have more of the staples in the house such as oil, paper towels, beach towels etc. But overall I would definitely go back!
Patricia G.on 12/22/2017
The home was decorated with style and very clean. Fantastic master bedroom with comfy King bed, dual sinks and walk in closet. Very open plan so you can see the water from kitchen, dining snd living area. Nice large deck although the cold weather kept us from fully enjoying it. Rental staff very nice and helpful. We hope to return someday.

Excellent vacation home lived up to the pictures...Well maintained, clean and very nice...all the close to the Gulf...We had a perfect week of weather, immediate;y before the Texas hurricane....Kudos to the managing company for a job well done.....The Island was very quiet as school had started for many....I think rent rates should drop in mid-August to reflect this rather than Labor Day....School starts 2-3 wks earlier than when I attended....We were surrounded by empty homes.......Peace and quiet in a lovely place

The home was great - excellent layout, ton of space, great location right on the ocean. The only thing that brought it down to 4 stars is the lack of amenities in the home. We've not rented a home on the coast before where we've had to bring along staple items such as toilet paper, trash bags, paper towels, beach towels, beach chairs, etc.
It was a great home & we had a wonderful time - it just seems they cut a few unnecessary corners that would have made it perfect.
Radek S.on 07/08/2017
It was our first experience in Alabama/Dauphin Island! Booking, Communication and solving minor issue (grill was out of gas) was pleasant and Easy. Few steps from the beach, comfortable house.
Cheryl S.on 06/24/2017
Our stay at Beachside was amazing! The house was perfect for our family of six adults and two young children. Right on the water so we could easily go back and forth between the house and beach. I highly recommend this property!

We had a wonderful vacation at Beachside the first week in July. We arrived during a downpour, but the rest of the week was sunny (and a bit windy). The wind cools down the heat so wouldn't have changed it. The ocean was fabulously warm and the sand is so white! (I am more familiar with the Atlantic Ocean beaches so this was a real treat.) The house is well-appointed, but bring lots of groceries since there isn't a fully-stocked grocery store on the island. We frequented the seafood store, which was great and owned by a nice family.
Phil was super -- the kitchen faucet wasn't functioning correctly but he promptly sent a very nice plumber to replace it. The grill hadn't been cleaned in a while, but other than that the place was spotless. The house used to be the first on the ocean, but another house has been built slightly to the left of the ocean view. Not a problem if your expectations are set. You can rent kayaks delivered right to your doorstep! Will be back!

Just a few Steps from my chair on the beach, this house is the perfect beach house. Beautiful decor, lots of patio furniture on the covered porch overlooking the gulf. The beach wasn't crowded and dauphine island is a great place just to relax and enjoy. Island resort mgt is the best. C u next yr.
This was our 1st ever visit to DI and I was very happy with Beachside as our rental. It was just two of us on this trip so space wasn't an issue for us. The place was very clean when we arrived, even the fridge was spotless. My husband appreciated the big TV and two comfortable couches. The kitchen was nice and well equipped. We didn't really lack for anything. The view off the back deck is the #1 amenity and main attraction. I could have spent the whole week just sitting on the back deck. You are probably 50 steps from the beach here. There is a house built to the left and closer to the beach but there is still plenty of unobstructed view. We brought our dog and the deck was perfect for her with the gates at the bottom of the steps so that she could stay out there with us. I thought Island Resort Management was a great company to work with and I would use them again.
We stayed on Dauphin Island for two months. It was as advertised, nice view, nice home, until the last two weeks. Then the bulldozers and construction workers came to build a new home in front and back of" Beachside" the place where we were staying. A very active construction site is not compatible with a relaxing stay on the beach. Since neither the homeowner nor the property management organization was at fault we just put up with it until we left.
We were very happy to find this pet friendly property. The location's fantastic. The house is very well kept. We enjoyed our stay. We will be back. The rental agency provided clear communication and support for all inquiries.
This rental was all we could have asked for and more. Could watch the kids play in the water right from the deck. Very clean very nice and the rental company checked in with us every couple of days. Had everything we needed in the kitchen except a pizza cutter. Although there were plenty of items we didn't use available including a blender 2 air mattresses and a beach pop up tent. There are foot washing stations at each door and a shower under the deck. The BBQ grill was propane and clean. Wow what a dishwasher! Our family of 6 had plenty of room and space. Would and have recommended this rental to family and friends. We had an awesome week thank you.
