My family and I stayed at the Beach House for a week last month. It was FUNTASTIC!! There was something special for everyone. The little ones loved playing on the beach right in front of the house!! The BIG kids fished and swam and relaxed. The size of the house is wonderful! Perfect for a large family. I would highly recommend this beautiful home to anyone that needs a week of relaxation.
PS My favorite were the schools of dolphins which followed the shrimp boats which circled in front of the house every day. I highly recommend that you don't forget your binoculars!!
Although it was literally right on the beach we had 3 little ones that were able to play in the shade in the sand and we didn't have to drag umbrellas out because they were able to play in the sand under the deck shade. We saw dolphins in the gulf water and had an occasional bird on our deck rail. The house itself is very spacious and the kitchen was awesome. We brought our own food and cooked all but 2 times. I had a little OCD and had to organize the dishes/utensils which seemed to be wherever. It was perfect for our family of 13. If I could I would definitely stay there again. I'd love to see it after they get get the beach restoration done.
Before I start I want to say that I did not report any of this to the rental company during my stay because while it was very disappointing to arrive to this low standard it did not impede our trip. I had higher expectations for the money we spent to stay here. I also took several photos of all the issues I am declaring. The house is located directly on the water and at certain times it swallows up what little beach area there is. Many problems related to cleanliness and maintenance of the home. Many dishes which were put away as clean had food stuck on them. There was a yellow stain on a piece of baseboard which looked like an animal PEED on it. The trash can in kitchen stunk like dead fish. There was a cockroach in the downstairs stairwell area. The upstairs queen room with bathroom had a shower curtain with mold all over it. There were several missing light bulbs and lights that were missing globes. Some of the windows did not latch properly and do not have screens in them. The living room ceiling has a big water leak stain spot and there were several areas throughout the place which needed drywall repairs. Downstairs hall closet ceiling was wide open to the attic space. The decking on the balcony had several nails sticking up. The concrete pad at the bottom of the home was all broke up at the ocean end and huge chunks of concrete were laying around. All the appliances were updated to stainless except the refrigerator which was rusted and moldy with broken shelves. Has an ice maker which was separate from the refrigerator. It was very nice to have. Bedding was not comfortable at all. Master bath shower door frame is separating from the wall which causes the door not to shut properly. the master bedroom door is not hung right and sticks before it shuts proper. The glass cooktop stove was broke in one corner. A broken window (glass) in the kitchen above the sink. no door stops on balcony doors which caused the doors to swing open and put holes in the side of the home. The holes were filled with foam but never stucco and repainted. Many door locks are not working properly. The living room floor has major structural issues as there is a noticeable slope.
Our family loved this house! It was very inviting and comfortable. The glass window/door ocean side provided beautiful views all day and night. This house sits practically on the water, so not a lot of beach area, but that was perfect for us as we were there to enjoy the water. The sound of the surf could be heard in some of the bedrooms at night, making for a peaceful experience. The large deck and chairs provided a great place to grab some sun during the day or to enjoy the beautiful night sky. The house itself was well cared for and very comfortable. The layout is convenient and inviting. The kitchen is well stocked with everything needed to prepare meals. Although, the gated community was never "gated" the time we were there, the neighborhood was still very private and quiet. The couple minor issues we encountered were handled quickly and professionally by the caretakers. It was truly the perfect place for our perfect vacation.
The house is right on the beach. The beach isn't very wide at this point, but it is right outside your door. It worked great for us. Beautiful. The house is in a small neighborhood of houses so this stretch of beach is nice and quiet and not too crowded. The refrigerator has some duct tape holding the shelves together. Other than that, the kitchen and living room are beautiful and in great shape. The bedrooms are huge. We would stay here again.
The Beach House was everything and more than we expected from the pics on the internet, which can always be a gamble. The house was very nice, big and roomy; loved the whirlpool tub in the master bath; deck has the most amazing views; house is located almost directly on the water with just enough beach in front of house to have plenty of fun! Great location next to the bird sanctuary; plenty of beach to walk in either direction; saw dolphins numerous times from the house, absolutele paradise! Our second visit to the island, and we have fallen in love with Dauphin Island, everyone is friendly, beautiful public beaches, numerous parks, bike trails, learning opportunities at the estruarium and historic Fort Gaines, and the best steamed shrimp we've ever had at Skinners almost every day! Making plans to stay permanently one day!
Comfortable, not decorated like a beach rental; more like home. Much appreciated. Surf was spectacular! No traffic! Quiet! Moon! Warm! Sunny! Fireplace at night! Life is great @ The Beach House! Beds...comfortable.. .not so much but everything else made up. Kudos to the owners, well appointed , maintained & decorated. We appreciate sharing your home & would have you in ours!
We had a wonderful time at Dauphin Island Beach House...You can't get any closer to the water unless you are in a boat!! Carla and her staff was just great!! We slept 10 very comfortably!!!...We would return and would highly recommend!!! Great Job Carla!!!
