This house is very comfortable and has everything that was advertised. The walk to the beach is short, just past the house next door and past the dunes. The beach on this stretch of the island is beautiful.
John A. Sep 2020
Very clean and very comfortable. The views are beautiful. The outside shower is a must. We would stay here again.
Pam H. Jul 2020
New, very clean, short walk to the surf, quiet, plenty of towels and linens, equipped kitchen, charmingly decorated, full shower outside. We lacked for nothing during our 3 -day stay. Very quick response to texts regarding questions. We would stay there again in a heartbeat.

The front porch alone is reason enough to rent this house again. From sunrise to sundown we had shade and a wonderful breeze off of the gulf . The high end decor gives that resort feel and the short walk to the beach worked great with 4 grandkids .
Karen C. Jul 2020
We were looking for an uncrowded, quiet experience. We got that, plus serenity and peace in a bright, clean home-away-from-home.
Stacey D. Jun 2020
The kitchen was well stocked, beds were comfy, living room furniture was comfy and great view of the beach!

We love Dauphin Island and renting a home so close to the beach is the best way to go! The whole family loved this house! It’s a short walk to the beach, our sports wagon made taking stuff to the beach easier. The house is beautiful Inside and out and had lots of items like a keurig and regular coffee pot which our crew enjoyed. A couple of pans, a muffin tin, blender, utensils, plates, cups, prep bowls of various sizes...I was able to cook all the meals I had planned with what they had in the kitchen and a roll of paper towels also plenty of cloth hand towels and they provided a few dishwasher soap pods and few trash bags. The laundry was super convenient (we forgot detergent but easily picked some up at The Package Store) Each bathroom had two rolls of tp (plenty for our four night stay!) The House was stocked with plenty of fresh bath linens and there was even a basket of blue towels that came in handy to dry off with on the porch after rinsing the sand off! We would recommend this home and would love to book it again!

This house was great for our beach vacation. It is beautifully decorated, comfortable, and well-stocked. There are plenty of pots and pans for cooking, and the space is well laid-out. My only wish was that the beds had cotton blankets rather than duvets- the duvets are too warm and the sheet too cool. There were a couple cotton blankets stashed around the house, but not enough for every bed. The pictures make it look like the house is on the beach directly, but it is set back one to two houses from the beach. Still very easy access, but the area is a bit crowded with houses. Overall, a good experience.

Nice and clean. The house was well kept and had no issues with the home. Check in was easy. The kitchen was well equipped. The only thing is there were no hangers in the home. We loved the location, great place to watch the waves. It is 25 minutes to Mobile and 20 minutes to the nearest grocery store so stock up before you arrive. Over all, a great getaway.
DAVID M. Feb 2020
The house was comfortable and gorgeous. You could see the Gulf out of the front and side windows. I could picture myself living in a place like this. I would like to rent this house again.
Jade C. Nov 2019
I loved everything about this home! It was spacious, beautifully decorated, stocked with the essentials you need for your stay, and the beds were very comfortable! The only thing I would change is to add a couple rugs to the bathrooms! The floor can get slippery and chilly in the winter, but overall we loved it and would definitely book again!
Manager response:
Thank you!
Karen H. Oct 2019
Beautifully decorated! Even though it sits behind another home, we still had great views from the nice porch and a short walk to the beach. Everything we needed for a great vacation! I would definitely stay here again.
Becky S. Oct 2019
We loved our stay at Barefoot Sands! The home was very clean and well stocked with everything you could possibly need to get your beach vacation started.
Edward M. Sep 2019
We just needed a quick getaway before school picked up and this place couldn’t have been more perfect. It was so clean and comfy, not to mention it had an amazing view. It was well kept and had everything we needed and more. We will definitely be back!
Bridget B. Aug 2019
Everything was comfortable and exactly what we needed!
Dana R. Aug 2019
This beach-house was the most perfect place for a beautiful relaxing fun spot! I’d book again in a heartbeat should we decide to return to Dauphin Island!!! So enjoyed our stay!!!
Linda S. Jul 2019
We loved our stay at Barefoot Sands! The house was so clean! The furniture was very beach friendly. The house was spacious and well supplied. Parking was easy. Getting to the beach was easy as well. We highly recommend it!
Denise B. Jun 2019
Great location. The house was even more beautiful than the pictures!! It was equipped with everything you could ask for. I can’t wait to go back.
Jason P. Jun 2019
The beach is a short walk away but a cart to carry your things is advisable. The sounds of the surf and breeze across the covered deck make for a relaxing evening. This house is well-appointed with extremely comfortable bedding and furniture. Kitchen has utensils and cookware enough to meet most needs. We stayed here as a group of five adults and four kids 8-15. There was enough space so as to not feel cramped. Plenty to do in the area.

Loved the house and location. Can’t wait to return!
Rebecca B. Mar 2019

Beautiful home
Keri R. Oct 2018
Overall we had an amazing stay. Beautiful views of the beach and quiet. It’s the perfect place for a family getaway with not as much beach traffic as a lot of other places.
Jodi L. Sep 2018
The house was more than you could ask for! Exceptionally clean and decor was amazing! I would recommend this rental to anyone �� The only complaint I had was that I had to leave ��
Will B. Aug 2018
Beautiful home with plenty of room for our family. The kids loved the bunk room. Close to the beach
Janie K. Jul 2018
Beautifully decorated and perfectly clean! Loved this house. We had plenty of room for the 5 of us. Not right on the beach but a 2 min walk , and we could see and hear the beach from our deck! Great outdoor shower!! Only suggestion would be to add to kitchen stock: a griddle pan, other necessities we assumed they’d have so didn’t think to bring (dishwasher soap, etc). Dauphin Island is a favorite!!
Shannon l. Jul 2018
This beach house is beautifully decorated and high-end. My family had a relaxing stay and lacked for nothing. It is a perfect place to stay when you want a break and to be close to the beach every day. When you are done on the beach, the porch is perfect for sitting and listening to the waves.
Jeffrey L. Jun 2018
Beautiful house and wonderful atmosphere on island. The view from the house was obstructed by other houses but walk was not bad at all. The beach was never crowded and very peaceful. All in all, a great time.
Brenda R. Jun 2018
We had a Great Vacation. The house met all our needs. Beautiful both inside and out. Very close to the beach.
Kristi D. Mar 2018
It was nice.
Lori B. Jul 2017
Our stay was great. The house was beautiful, close to the ocean with a light house view. House had all we needed except a pizza cutter and directory for the television. Neighbors were very friendly.
TOM V. Jul 2017
This is the second time we've rented a house on the island and absolutely loved the experience. The house is brand new and within a 1 minute walk to the beach. The house has a great open floorplan which was very accommodating for our family. A very relaxing and enjoyable experience for all of us.

The deck is a great place to enjoy the ocean breeze and you can see the gulf from the living room and kitchen.

We absolutely loved our stay and would recommend this property to anyone else.
Treva H. Jun 2017
The house is about 100 yards from the beach with one other
property in front of it. Great porch furnished to seat all of our group
with tables to eat outside and provided a place for kids to play also.
Beds comfortable. Outdoor shower was a hugh bonus for keeping sand out!
