House is well layed out. Everything was provided. Great location
We had a great time, beds were very comfortable with a great private beach area. We truly enjoyed our stay, loved the screened in porch area.
Nice home in a beautiful, laid back setting.
This was the best vacation ever! The beach house was perfect. We had 8 guests and everyone was comfortable. Sunrise & sunsets were beautiful. We found shells on the beach, signed one and left it in the jar by the fireplace. The local restaurants were very good. We recommend the Escape fishing trip with captain Mike and crew. I would definately stay at Set Sail again!!!
The home was perfect for our seven adults and 2 kids. The location was perfect to have the kids out to the calm Mississippi Sound side and the waves from the Gulf side. The home had a open main area with kitchen in middle and two setting areas on both sides. The table was nice and large for all of us to eat together. We do want to come back to the same home and same location.
The layout of the house was amazing. The setting on Pelican Bay/Mississippi Sound was perfect. You had the Bay to the back of the house, and just walk across the street to find the Gulf. Most Restful/Peaceful week I have spent in a long time. I will recommend this location and probably request it again!!
This our 5th year doing a fall family getaway before the holiday season gears up and this is our second time staying at Set Sail; love the house and the location and with 2yr. old and 4yr. old granddaughters the beach on the sound is perfect; the “noisy beach” (as our oldest granddaughter calls it) is a short walk. Would highly recommend this property; with 6 adults and 2 children we had plenty of room to relax and the beach front gazebo is wonderful! Great week!
Best vacation we have had at Set Sail and this was our third family vacation there.The house is clean and makes you feel at home. My grandkids loved the private beach where they swim a while then take a break and try to fly cash for
Fiish. I listened to my audio books lying in the. Hammock.weather was sunny with no rain driving which was great, Did have a wind storm come thru one night
I would recommend this property especially with is so safe.
This was our 4th year to stay at Set Sail, I don’t think we could find anywhere that we’d like better. Our ages run from 6 to 72, with the Gulf access and the Bay, there is always something for everyone to do. My favorite time was having coffee watching the sun come up, reading my book and then taking a long walk on the beach. You don’t need to bring anything, kitchen has everything you’d ever need, there are games galore, fishing is great, the beach is great and the list goes on. We love Set Sail, I don’t think anyone would be disappointed with their stay there. Last year we were there for the hurricane and still had a wonderful time.
This was our third visit to Set Sail. Had a great time. House is perfect for the kids and grandkids.
This was my extended families second stay at Set Sail. We love the house, it is very roomy and the deck completely around the house is and added bonus. You can see the gulf and bay from the house. We used Set Sail again this year because we all loved the gazebo and the boardwalk to the gazebo. Seeing dolphins several times and other wild life is always fantastic to see. We would recommend Set Sail for anyone to use.
We were very happy with this rental. The kitchen was very well equipped, we were able to find everything we needed. Our party included two families and the floor plan of the house was perfect to give us plenty of private space while also some great joint space. Overall we loved the house and hope to visit again soon!
The rental was very well appointed both with respect to furnishings and kitchen. Would definitely recommend to others. There are places where it could use a little paint, etc.
We had family between 4-76 yr old and 1 was wonderful time for all!
Searched for rental on line. Most looked like decorated from college dorm room and basement leftovers. This house ver tastefully decorated and very comfortable. Private beach and dog friendly. Will be back.
A beautiful home and island. Very peaceful and relaxing. Beds are very comfortable and amenities were great! Negative was the Gulf beach was across the street and past a row of homes. Would definitely stay here again.
Our only complaint is the mattresses on the bunk beds and the sofa bed were
Terrible and need to be replaced. Several of the pots and pans were not clean.
Those who had the updated beds were happy.
We had a great time and can't wait to come again! The house was beautiful and Resort Management was great and so friendly We had some issues with Wifi and they were on top of it. The house is gorgeous and very well taken care of
Set Sail is the best of both worlds. Gulf side is great for big kids and the Bay for younger kids. Everything you need is provided. We love the games, fishing, shelling, porch sitting, swimming, etc. We've talked about going somewhere else but can't think of a reason, we truly do love this place.
Amazing, a true escape from hectic life. We slowed down and just enjoyed our family. We caught up , recharged. Returning as soon as possible. The house was beautiful and well stocked.
Took our three children ages 17, 19, and 21 and had a great time enjoying the bay, the gulf, and the unhurried atmosphere.
This was our first time renting a beach house, and it did not disappoint! Upon arrival we found a beautifully decorated house, that was very welcoming, and had views for days! The kitchen was fully stocked with whatever cooking utensil we needed. All towels (besides beach towels) were supplied which was amazing! There was a book shelf with endless reading materials, DVDs, and a game drawer, which were all utelized! All of these little details helped make our stay wonderful. We had 6 children with us and the house was very "kid" friendly. The beach was beautiful, and it was a nice perk to be able to have access to the bay and also the gulf, across the street! The cabana was equipped with hammocks, which were nice to swing in while the kids splashed in the bay. The wrap around porch was used to view dolphins daily as they passed on the bay side and also the gulf side! The kids enjoyed the Estuarium and also the Bird Sanctuary. We also made frequent visits the the island bakery...the cinnamon rolls and danishes are to die for! I spoke to Valerie, the home owner on more than one occasion and she always very friendly and informative. The memories made in this house will be lasting! Until next time Dauphin Island....
This home was just what our family needed - so spacious and comfortable. You have the bay in the back yard when you want to relax and the ocean in the front when you want to play in the waves. We loved sitting on the porch and watching the sunsets. I would recommend the house and the location to friends and family who want to get away from it all and create lasting memories.
Some light bulbs were out, several plastic chairs on the back deck were broken, the washing machine was very slow. Views were fantastic, location could not have been better, furnishings were great. Booked for next year already.
We chose this home for our "girls trip", and we couldn't be happier. The home was very nice, and the private beach access was perfect. Great views of both the Bay and Gulf sides! We will definitely return!
