We came here on a family vacation with my 2 toddlers and inlaws and I absolutely loved the house.
PROS
1. The house is in a VERY convenient location to the public beaches AND FOOD.
2. The house is on a canal... its BEAUTIFUL. The sound of water as you sit on the back porch swing at sunrise and sunset is just absolutely amazing.
3. The house is clean - I work in a hospital... I know clean when I see it. The bed was clean, the yard was clean, very impressed.
4. The house is very well stocked. Dont worry about bringing dishes... ANY dishes. Complimentary laundry detergent (and the dishwasher) is beyond helpful when you have toddlers! Ice maker was a huge plus too!
5. The neighbors across the canal are extremely friendly.
6. We fit 4 adults and 2 toddlers comfortably. Very well laid out.

CONS
1. The house is a little dated - for the price, it was expected - we still give 5 stars.
2. A few minor fixes should be done like the nails on the stairs, and the closet (and small bedroom door) were off the track and had been previously damaged.
3. The refrigerator had a funny smell... like jalapenos.

Overall, we are extremely happy with our stay, and will probably book this same house again. It was great and we look forward to staying again.

Quiet, basics all provided. If you're looking for a place that'll you'll basically just sleep at, this'll meet your needs.

The cottage smelled freshly cleaned when we checked in. There were plenty of clean bath and kitchen linens with an available washer/dryer. The porch swing on the covered deck is a perfect spot for relaxing. This home is a good value for Dauphin Island. Will come back again!

We had a wonderful time at Canal Cottage. Well stocked. Master shower and closet did have a strange smell. Other then that it was a quiet neighborhood easy to get around.

We rented a large house across the street and then added this one for extras. It's an older home. Closet are full of stuff so we left clothes in draws.
