About This Listing View Location >>
Bed Configuration: Bedroom 1: King | Bedroom 2: Full | Bedroom 3: King | Bedroom 4: 2 Twins | Extra Bedding: 2 Full Sofa Sleepers.
Sleeps 9, 4 bedrooms, 2.5 baths plus outdoor enclosed shower. Spacious 2000 square foot open floor plan with 2nd floor loft/parlor overlooking living room. Huge windows with bay views everywhere in the soaring 18 foot high living room. Well equipped kitchen has everything. Large laundry room with washer/dryer and sink. Free Wi-Fi internet & 4 large flat screen TVs with DirecTV DVRs. Huge bay-front deck with covered and open areas. Covered deck on south side has view to Gulf beach. Plenty of chairs and lounges on the decks along with a gas grill and picnic table.
Pier with 2 story dock / sundeck. Private sandy beach with the best location on the street. This is the last house on the street and there is a long stretch of beach to the east that has no docks and very few people. Bring your boat. Bring fishing gear - dock has tons of mounted rod holders, lights, electricity, and running water. Enclosed outdoor shower under house. Covered concrete parking pad under house. This is the Pet-friendliest place you will find - lowest pet rate, highest pet limit on the island. Crates and dog beds supplied. Get the dogs out on the beach right out your back door.
The bay side is a great place to be. The Gulf Beach is just a short walk, but here you have your own wide, sandy bay beach right out the back door. And with this house you have your own dock, too. Even if you don't have a boat, the dock is great to fish from or just relax on. You will spend more time outdoors when you have a dock, and that's why you're here. There are only 2 rentals on the island with a bay beach and their own boat dock. This is one of them, and it's the only one with modern TV and internet. We have full DirecTV with DVR on each TV. That means hundreds of channels, in-demand, programs saved on the DVRs, plus Sirius and Pandora Radio built into each TV. You're not here to watch TV, but trust us, you will get tired of 40 basic cable channels on old low definition TVs at other rentals. We are the only place with a bay beach, dock, and modern audio/video.
Bedrooms: 2 Kings, 1 Full, 2 Twin, Futon, & 2 Full Sofa sleepers. All bedrooms have ceiling fans and light-blocking window treatments with black-out backing. You will not be woken by unwanted sunlight at the crack of dawn. The Master bedroom is on the main level and has a King bed, TV, double vanities and full private bath along with a sliding door to the sundeck. Also on the main level is a smaller bedroom with a Full sized bed and a private walk-out to the Gulf-facing deck. There is half bath next door to this bedroom. Upstairs is a huge loft/parlor area that overlooks the entire open-floor plan downstairs and has great water views to the bay and sound. This area has a 50 inch TV, 2 couches and a game table.
Also upstairs are two bedrooms and a full bath with tub/shower. One bedroom has a king bed and TV. The other has a pair of twin beds. Both have walk-in closets and water views to the bay.

Great house in a great location. I'm local so I knew this would be a great spot and it didn't disappoint. Pier for boys to fish from and tie up boat. Beach for wife and daughters to sunbathe. The dog loved the beach and water. House has a great set up and floor plan. Only draw back and it's not a big one, is that the house is starting to show its age. A little paint and minor repairs needed. Possibly a den furniture upgrade for the really nit picky. Overall a grade of A.

We love Dauphin Island and the quaint community. For us, we love the Bayside with the private beach areas and the pier. The kids fish at night and we get to enjoy the water say and night!

Fish bones was amazing! Very comfortable and everything you could possibly need was provided! Our group consisted of my family of 5 and my mother in law and we had plenty of space! The pier was great for fishing while the kids played in the beach area. We hope to go back soon!

Fish Bones was an ideal place to stay for our family! Perfect sunrise/sunset views. Clean, spacious, and very pet friendly. Awesome dock that accommodated our 20ft bay boat perfectly. Shallow waters for our kids to play in. Fish Bones will most definitely be our first choice next year! Side note: the master closet is so big that we were able to set up our baby's portable bed in it, giving her her own room tucked away from all the noise from the rest of the house!

This was truly a family friendly house. We loved the dock and the sound side even more than we thought we would. Our old girl dog loved it too.

The house was fine, plenty of room. No DVD players, not a huge channel selection (no BTN network). great dock for relaxing, fishing whatever. deck on house needs some tlc, but we had no real issues. We stayed at Summer Breez last October and that house was fantastic but had no dock, so it depends what you want. BBQ grills worked fine, gas grill has no push start button for a spark to light, so you need a long match, again no big deal.

We loved the house, loved the dock, loved the island, and the beaches are unbelievable! It was an amazing vacation with memories that will be with us forever. We can't wait to go back!

Beautiful and very clean beach home! Even better than the photos. Very pet friendly. Out the back door is the gorgeous Mississippi Sound with great fishing dock. Out front door and a short walk across the street to the ocean. Surrounded by sand, water, and quiet! Had a couple issues that management/owner handled very quickly.
We will very likely be returning!
Great location. Spacious 4 br/2 bath house on the bay. Hope we get to go back again.
dauphin is a great place to visit. off season is laid back and uncrowded. skinners seafood is unreal and the bakery was fantastic. cant say enuf good things. mgt co and owner and property were top shelf. hope to return and do it all again. one month not enuf time.
We loved the property and had an awesome time. Our dogs loved it too! We communicated with the owner on several occasions and he was very pleasant and very helpful with the questions I had about what was at the house for us to use and where to eat on the island. We will go back.
The picture is a little outdated of the surrounding area. There is a lot of natural beach grass growth now and a several more houses on the gulf side. You have to drive to the beach parking and enter the gulf beach there. There are large sand dunes between the road and the gulf side houses now. Nothing bad just not what I expected from the pictures.
Our family had a wonderful time staying at Fish Bones. The house and views were spectacular. My only negative is Island Resort Managements "hurricane policy". This was almost a deal breaker for me. As far as the house itself though, you couldn't ask for a better place.
This is David Carnes, our vacation was amazing, fishbones was fantastic and we would def rent there again. the dock def is the renting factor of the house. The layout of the home was perfect for our family. having the living space upstairs gives everyone there space when needed. of course the downstairs and decks makes for fun family time also. we want to thank Ron and island resort Management for there great service and hospitality. we love the island very much and looking forward to another trip next year.
Great place for a family vacation. Children and grandchildren had plenty to do, swimming ,fishing, playing in the sand, sight seeing, etc.
For the first stay on Daulpin Island, we had a blast!! Loved being there. The bay view from our wonderful vacation rental(Fish Bones), was awesome and beautiful. We are a family group of eight with three dogs. Fish Bones was very comfortable, nicely decorated with good taste, and everyone loved the private beach and the double deck for fishing. The dog friendly rental was a big plus!!!! We enjoyed havingThanksgiving together and if you go to Daulpin Island, be sure and visit Skinner's Seafood and the Light House Bakery. We will definitely be back to Fish Bones and Daulpin Island. Loved every minute of being there.
