We enjoyed the private oasis with dolphins playing right off the deck!
Sigrid L. Dec 2020
We loved everything about this house and the location can’t be beat! It was clean, modern, and has everything that a family would need for a home-away-from-home. We thoroughly enjoyed the deck with the most beautiful sunrise and sunset. We even saw the Christmas Star from it. The only thing that was a bummer (a slight inconvenience) was the dishwasher was broken the whole time we were there. But other than that, it really was a relaxing, most perfect beach vacation. We will definitely be back!!

Loved that this home was right on the beach....I mean, right on the beach! It was great for our family. The home was very clean and roomy! The deck was great! Views were spectacular. We enjoyed our stay and would love to return!

Great place to take the kids and get away from society!
Amy M. Jul 2020
This house worked out great for us. We stayed with our son and daughter and their families. Each couple had a room with bathroom and the bunk room was perfect for the kiddos. Very close to the ocean. My only complaint was getting in and out. You have to go through deep sand and steps are very steep. We had a wonderful week!

If you are looking for a house on the beach... it doesn't get any closer! We do a family beach vacation every year and this house made a top 5 memorable vacation.

Everything about it was wonderful! Only complaint is getting to the house. Sand dunes between house and parking area.

The house is large with an awesome deck to view the sea and the magnificent sunsets. It is very clean and well stocked.

We loved the size of the home and location. It was hard getting the luggage up and down the sand dunes, but we managed. We had beautiful days watching the sunrise and sunset, and enjoyed looking at the shrimp boats passing with the dolphins and birds all around us. It was very relaxing.
Peggy P. Nov 2019
House is decorated beautifully for beach stay, simple and inviting open floor plan. Beach just down the front steps. Great location to walk to west end beach and explore. Tons of shells and boat watching. Quiet private drive and lot

Location and local ambience were wonderful. Other vacationers were very friendly. Beach house was great. We couldn't get shower to work in the hall bathroom, but we used the one in the bunkbed room-just an fyi for maintenance I have shared with friends that your rentals are perfect, especially Sand by me!
Manager response:
Thank you for your review. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay at Sand By Me! We have alerted our maintenance technician to take a look at the shower and repair it as necessary. We hope to host you again soon!

House was perfect for our family of 7. Everyone had their own bathroom and their own tv. The deck was so awesome. Every night we sat on the deck listening to the waves and watching the moonlight shimmer on the water. Every room was spacious. The kitchen table was big enough for our entire family to sit together. Plenty of dishes for large family. Plenty of storage. The blender had preset buttons for frozen drinks that's a plus, made great frozen margaritas. Highly recommended this property.
Karen C. Sep 2019
I have been to DI many times but this is the first time I’ve stayed in a house on the waters edge. It was a wonderful opportunity to view the Gulf unimpeded by other houses. The house was perfect accommodations for my group. I would stay there again.
Julie A. Sep 2019
Loved it. My only recommendation for the owner is some lounge chairs for the deck. Other than that it was perfect.
Jeremy T. Aug 2019
Was a great week house was perfect for all our needs. only downside is the stairs and the walking distance from the car to house because all of the sand had not been removed from recent storm. But looking forward to staying again

Our trip started out a little rocky due to the flooding on the island. We had to stay in Mobile, AL for the first two nights due to being unable to reach our rental home. Vacasa, and the local manager, Joanne were both AMAZING to work with!! They offered us a refund for the two nights, and were extremely helpful with everything! Vacasa customer service was supurb! We had another family go with us in a different house with a different rental company, and they are still fighting with insurance to get a refund! Once we got into the house, it was perfect! The perfect size, and location. The house was beautiful, and it had more than enough amenities. We have stayed in another house on the island before, but this one will be our "go-to" house when we return. Thanks again Vacasa for the amazing customer service!

Great house and wonderful vacation w family if only Barry hadn’t showed up and cut us a day short!!
Sheila C. Jun 2019
We loved the house and being right on the water. Love the back deck because we had two little ones and didnt have to worry about them going down the steps.
Mary C. May 2019
The location and arrangement of the house was awesome.
Andrew A. Mar 2019
This place was amazing!!!! Great place to stay!!! Loved having my sliding glass door open at night to hear the gulf!!!
naomi D. Feb 2019
Loved that this house is almost in the ocean and away from the town. It's also right near the most beautiful park and very quiet and peaceful.
Joyce M. Jan 2019
We loved the four spacious bedrooms and the four bathrooms. The kitchen was well stocked with all the items that you would need to cook. The deck was awesome and we enjoyed beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Great place to reconnect with family
Laura N. Dec 2018
We loved the uncluttered and laid back atmosphere of Dauphin Island. The house was beautiful, nicely decorated and the kitchen well-equipped with nice, new appliances, pots, pans and dishes. The beds all had new, comfortable mattresses and fresh linens, lots of towels too! The best part was the large deck overlooking the Gulf, great place to watch the sunset and sunrise! having part of the deck covered was convenient for a rainy afternoon. My son and husband appreciated the large flat screen TVs in almost every room! My only complaint would be the steps going up to the entrance are very steep, I noticed some of the other homes on the island had outside lifts, a lift would be great for hauling up all your stuff. Thanks, cant wait to return for another vacation!
William C. Aug 2018
We were on Dauphin Island for a week for a family reunion. The house was great, providing the perfect base for our group.
Sue F. Jun 2018
We had 3 families with grandkids join us! No need to go to the beach because we were on the beach!! Beautiful home with upgraded amenities. Worked out beautifully whether we were cooking or grilling out! Beautiful deck overlooking the Gulf. This is a quiet place away from the hustle and bustle! No chain restaurants! Just a few local restaurants.
Julie M. May 2018
Could not ask for anything better. The house is beautiful! After a little AC issue was fixed we had no problems at all. Make sure you bring anything you may need beyond what is listed as being there such as spices to cook with! I can't say enough great things about the whole experience from booking to checking out!
