It was a very quiet relaxing time at the beach. Saw a lot of marine life from bay side beach. Saw many hermit crabs, regular crabs, stingrays, and jumping fish. Had fun fishing from the beach. Caught a black tip reef shark and a yellow fin tuna. Beach had very few if any people on it. Pool was fun. Gulf side was more populated but, fun. Even visited the sea lab and fishing pier. It was a great week. Will be back in the future.

Jack's Shack is a beautiful home. It is beautifully decorated, yet functional. The kitchen has everything you need to prepare meals. The pool was a hit with the kiddos. Access to the beach was very easy. Access to the sound was a little bit of a challenge because the grasses had taken over the path. We notified the management and they promised to send someone out to trim the weeds. Unfortunately the weather was not cooperative (rainy days) and they did not get trimmed. Overall, the stay was very, very nice. We have rented a house for four years at Dauphin Island and this was BY FAR, our favorite house.

Jack's Shack was the perfect place to stay. The open kitchen and living room was great for all of us to hang out in. I loved being in between the water. We walked to the bay side beach every night and watched the sunset. The proximity to the beach was so easy. I kind of loved not being right on it. And the pool! So loved hanging in the pool while friends cooked on the grill. We've already been discussing staying there again!

Our family loved our time spent at Jack's Shack. he photos from the website did not do justice to the spacious retreat that we found upon our arrival. The home had a very family friendly and whimsically comfortable décor with many enjoyable artistic additions around the house. Though the home does not have a direct view of the ocean, it does have many gorgeous views of the bay. Additionally, we were surprised the discover that the property was covered in a plethora of diverse plant and animal life. We truly felt blessed by our time spent at Jack's Shack and will be thinking fondly of our time spent at the Shack for years to come.

We shared this home with another family over Spring Break with a total of 4 adults and 4 teens. There was plenty of room and lots of dishes available for us all to use and the location was FANTASTIC!!! Unlike other homes on the island where their view and access to the beach are impeded by another home, this one is set alone and just a short walk to the water's edge. We loved being able to access both the Bay side and the Gulf side and the guys loved fishing both as well. Public access to the Golf is directly across the road and so nice to have both as an option! If you are looking to get out of the crazy chaos and overpopulated beaches that are typical Spring Break destinations, this is your spot! Private, quiet and incredibly gorgeous sunrises & sunsets ♥ Absolutely a wonderful time had by all!!

Jacks shack was the perfect rental. The pool outside was great. We loved staying on the bay side because it was so peaceful and the houses aren't close together like the ocean side. It was a very short walk to the beach, which was absoulety gorgeous. The house came with everything needed and more. We loves that they had fans in the closet to use. We can't say enough good things about jacks shack and dauphin island. Wonderful vaca, one of our favorites ever!

We vacationed with our family and it was a great experience. We loved the location, the view, the size of the house and surrounding area were great for the kids to explore and they loved the pool! The house could have been a bit cleaner but we were able to overlook that. The showers are not set up correctly. If one person was showering another could not be unless they wanted a cold shower. :(
Our family, including our toy poodle, had a great time on Dauphin Island. The house was well appointed and the beds were comfortable. While in a bit of disarray, there was ample equipment for cooking.
The stairs were steep and may be an issue for individuals where stairs are a challenge. The back gate was hard to open, which caused a bit of concern since it opened out over the stairs. There was also overgrowth of weeds at the base of the steps. However, this did not detract from the quality of accommodations available inside the home.
Any questions we had were answered promptly by the management company.
The best part of the stay is the access to the water and being able to take our dog to the beach. Most people were extremely responsible for their pets, which was a pleasant surprise.
We had a good time walking through the bird sanctuary, going through the fort, and seeing the animals at the aquarium. The island is very relaxed and easy to get around.
When we return, I will plan meals a bit better and bring most of what is needed. The grocery stores are limited and expensive.
Overall, it was a very pleasant experience.
Nice house. Beautiful view of bay. Loved Dauphin Island!!
