We had a great time on the island! We arrived late on Saturday, but were still able to formulate a plan to get into the house. When we needed a big pot to do a shrimp boil, they drove all the way to Mobile to get one for us! Location was prime! Public beach across the street, your own private on the Sound out back.
If you're looking for a vacation destination without the hustle and bustle of tourism, this is it!

Had a great time on Dauphin Island . We stayed at The Getaway house and it was great. Had all the amenities of home with plenty of room for the whole family. Walk out of the back door and you were just steps away from the bay and the from the front for the Gulf was literally right across the street.

This is great property for a large group. The layout is perfect and location even better. Dauphin Island is the place to go if you want a quiet, laid back destination.

Guest house exceeded our expectations. The place was very nice, and the layout was fantastic. The dogs had a great time playing on the bay in the mornings and evenings. The only issue we had, was there was so many mosquitos under the house where all the grass was, which was ok for us because we could put bug spray on, was a little hard on our dogs. Overall the place was fantastic. We are recommending it to all of our friends. And the ladies at the office were fantastic and very friendly, it was a pleasure to deal with them. They made you feel welcomed from the second you book your trip!

We had a wonderful beach trip. The house was just right for our needs. Plenty of room for 6 adults and two babies. Close to both the Mississippi sound in the backyard and gulf coast across the road. Great location

We had a great time on the Island overall.We were a bit disappointed with the overall condition of rental. Not to a point where it affected our opinion of our vacation, but since you are asking, I will point out a few things that we noticed.
There were multiple light bulbs that were burned out throughout the house. Also burned out bulbs on porch and under house. When you pulled in under house at night, it was difficult to see. The toilet in one of the bathrooms did not flush properly. You had to wiggle the handle a bit to get the tank to refill after flushing. We thought the floors were dirty. It seemed that they were only swept and not mopped. I realize this has to be difficult with all of the sand. The return air vents in the ceiling were both caked with dirt / dust. Dryer was extremely loud. To a point that if you dried clothes at bedtime you could here it running while in bed.
As I said, none of these things ruined our stay, but I would think the cleaning crew would have a checklist of items to check at every cleaning, and some of the things would have been addressed prior to our stay.
We were discussing the possibility of booking another stay on the Island next year, and to be honest, It would be doubtful if we would re-book with your company as a result. You get one chance to make a first impression, and these are the things people think of when deciding to book again with the same rental company. Not trying to be disrespectful or nasty but I would want to be aware if I were the manager of your properties.

I'll give you the good & bad about this place. The good is the location & that it is close to the beach. The bad is almost too long for 2000 characters. When we arrived the floor was so sticky that our feet were literally sticking to the floor. They did not leave a mop so my mother in law mopped with a towel. There was nothing to clean with so we had to buy everything to sanitize. They didn't leave ANY dishwashing liquid so that had to be purchased. Normally there is enough for at least a day. There is no pantry to store food items. The coffee pot must have been purchased at the Dollar Tree. Same with the blender, it was broken. There was a broom, no dustpan. In a place with sand that is a MUST. The second master doesn't have a shower or closet. I'm not picky, i just expected for the price that we paid that it would be clean. It was not. The only way I would rent is if it was the last available option.

very nice location, no stores around and not many people to deal with just a great get away
There was mold on all air vents, some of the pillows, area on bathroom wall and door to laundry room. Went it rained, the entire condo reeked of mildew, to the point where we got headaches. The bathroom walls were stained black. The dishes were all dirty and had to wash them all on the first day. Dishwasher did not clean the dishes and they had to be hand washed, which is ok, if I knew this from the beginning.
We had an excellent time at the Guest House. Plenty of space for our family. Good location with access to both the Gulf and the Bay. Our group is looking forward to coming back to the Island in the future.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay the week of Christmas (2014). The house felt like home to us. It was certainly more house than we needed since it was just the two of us. Our boxer (Elvis) adjusted to his new home for the week. We both loved the jacuzzi bath tub in one of the master bedrooms. The house was just as it was pictured on the Island Resort Management web site. It was warm enough that week that we were able to sit out on the deck in the back of the house and enjoy the Mississpi Sound and could look at the beautiful ocean on the front deck. We would definitely spend another vacation at the Guest House.
We had a great vacation at the Guest House. The location was great for us. In the back we had a view & access to the bay where we picked up sea shells daily. The children enjoyed the beach access just across the street for swimming & night time crabbing! The accommodations were perfect for us. There were a few issues which we reported immediately but nothing to disturb our use or enjoyment of the property. Some chairs were replaced & the management people were friendly & accommodating. My new favorite beach due to the quiet uncrowded beaches & the local friendliness! I'll be back to Dauphin Island.
