only complaint we could have was the internet was down but it was due to a storm that knocked out the cell tower so it really could not be anyones fault we had a great time

Great family house. Had party of 4 adults and 1 baby. Weather was cold and very foggy but the home was warm and cozy. It is roomy and my only suggestion is tgat more eating utensils are needed. It can sleep 10 and even though we only had 5, we were constantly washing utensils. Great home, good location, great back deck and chairs for sunning. Resort Management took care of our request gor more towels as soon as we made the request. They were also very pleasant and professional. I highly recommend them.

This vacation was different than most of the beach vacations I take in the fact that I had never stayed on Daulphin Island. The entire experience was wonderful! The house was gorgeous, the bedrooms were perfect and the view was spectacular!!!

To start, the location of the house is great and the house is very nice and fit our needs perfectly. This said, not all the linens on the beds were clean and we had to wash them. As well there were power issues that caused the lights to flicker the entire time we were there. And the internet/cable went down for a day or so. The management company was great and responsive and sent people out to fix the issues as they presented themself. My biggest issue with the house is that were a lot of cockroaches. We probably picked up/killed about 20 of them. This was not good. They came and sprayed but it was an issue the entire time and we stayed a week. I would go back again if that issue alone was taken care of.

We vacation in Dauphin Island every year and love to stay at Southern Shores! The house is beautiful and has all the amenities we want. Best of all it is gulf front. Island Resprt Management provides flawless service. They always have the house ready for us and are quick to correct any issues we encounter during our stay and the only issue we had was the wifi password wasn't working and they gave us the remedy over the phone. We are already looking forward to next year's trip!

Family vaca age 4 months to 87 years. Fabulous home with private beach. Loved the local fish market, outdoor movies and fireworks display. Island was quiet - didn't feel like July 4th crowd. YEA! Will definitely go back to Dauphin Island - South side!!! Would recommend taking an iron skillet and a good knife. Towels had to be washed again- folded damp and mildew had set in. Need some simple instructions for getting tv on.

This trip was dubbed 5 Sisters: 4 by blood, 1 by love. My three sisters, myself and a life-long family friend spent a glorious week at Dauphin Island. The house was amazing and the perfect size for us. We each had our own comfortable bed and the bathroom setup worked perfectly.
The house was exactly as described, clean and with excellent views. We loved the beach access and the ability to wash the sand off on both decks before entering the house.
We were notified upon arrival on a Saturday afternoon that the grill electric start was not working but on Monday it was fixed - we were provided a manual ignition to use in the interim.
We didn't partake of many local attractions or restaurants, but we did pick up some fresh seafood from Skinners to eat. So delicious...and a second visit netted some to take home!
We all enjoyed Dauphin Island so much and will be returning! I intend to stay at Southern Shores again!

Very windy and chilly

Beautiful home. Loved the location, view and upgrades and layout.
However, it needs a deep clean. Surfaces were clean, but baseboards, under furniture, window sills, cabinets etc. were dusty and dirty. Also, dishwasher had large chunks of food in it and smelled horrible. Dishes in cupboards had been put away dirty (with food on them) and we had to wash almost every dish we pull out the first day or two. The grill is also in very bad shape.
Management company staff was very friendly and helpful!
We would love to visit again!

Everything was great! We had the best time ever! The house was perfect, very comfortable, great views, just steps away from the water. This beach house and Dauphin Island is our place to vacation from now on!!!

Last year was our first trip to Dauphin Island and we absolutely fell in love with it. This vacation home was perfect for our family of five and pet. The rental homes are truly furnished as a "home away from home". Location was great and the stairs leading down to the beach was a perfect adder.
We tried several of the Island restaurants this year and highly recommend "Rainbow Pizza".
We also highly recommend "Chase-N-Rays" for beach loungers and umbrellas. Called as soon as we arrived and had them delivered and set up within 15 minutes.
Can't wait till next year!!
Best vacation spot on DI! Right on the beach! Beautiful! Only downsides: Internet service did not work—nor did it last year. Kitchen and other towels allowed to mildew and we could not use them. Grill ran out of propane in the middle of our only grilled meal. Nothing major, but irritating things, considering premium price paid for “premium” property.
Otherwise, best family vacation spot on island!
The beach house was in a beautiful gulf front location. There were numerous issues with the house which included: dirty bedding, broken grill, broken gate on deck, broken coffee pot that wouldn't close, dirty/old filter in freezer for ice maker, direct tv only works on a few tv's, not much water pressure in shower and limited pots and pans to cook with.
All of us had a beautiful rental right on the beach for a family reunion. With the Beach and the ocean right down stairs and the small town with 3 restaurants not far of driving distance all with pleasant atmosphere's and great food we couldn't have picked a better place for our vacation!
Everyone had great time. Loved the location and layout of the home. Will definitely consider it next time.
Lovely house, very clean, spacious, and just a few yards from the Gulf. The appliances worked well. Layout of rooms is nice. One minor complaint: There were a lot of plastic lids in the kitchen, but no bowls to go with them. This could be easily remedied by the management. There weren't any beach chairs, but we bought some cheap ones at Walmart and left them for the next family. The island is very quiet, but there are some nice restaurants.
The house was perfect for our family. There were three adults and our three kids in our party. Plenty of room for all of us. It even had two master bedrooms with ocean views. The only complaint we had were towels and washclothes. There were two washclothes and six towels for all of us the entire week!! Other than that-perfect. Will definitely try to stay there again.
The pictures accurately depict the condition and amenities of the house. The view from the rear deck is amazing (dolphin watching on a daily basis). The house is large enough to accomodate a family of 7 easily. It is in a perfect location on the beach with only one house neighboring closely to the east and a nice distance from the water. Although water clarity isn't ideal, it doesn't detract from the overall experience and enjoyment of Dauphin Island vacation in this house. Only issues experienced was lack of adequate supply of toilet paper, trash bags and dish soap. Since this is the first house we have rented, not sure if that was our responsibility. In any case, be sure the bring some. We absolutely loved our vacation and plan on making this beach house our annual vacation destination.
Wonderful home on the beach! Great for a vacation with family and friends! Great support from the rental company. This was our second stay at Southern Shores, we look forward to vacationing there again soon!
