This is my second stay at Southern Shores. I love this house and wouldn't think of staying elsewhere when in Dauphin Island. The location is perfect - offering private beach while close enough to the events of the town. The open floor plan inside as well as large deck provides so much space for a bigger group to share.
Now, for those people who will be staying at Southern Shores in the future, I offer the following information. This is information I wish I would have remembered from my first visit! :-)
1) The house is stocked with nice plates, bowls, utensils, pots and pans. If you love to cook (as I do) and have your go-to gadgets at home - bring them with you if you plan to cook.
2) If you drink coffee, the current coffee pot takes Cone #2 filters. (Current as of June 2019.)
3) Refrigerator has built in ice-maker, but not enough to keep up with larger groups on warm days. Buy a bag of ice on the way to the house!
4) Bring a rubber-backed rug of some kind to put on the tile floor at the entrance way of the sliding glass door from the deck. That area collects a lot of sand and/or water from rinsing off the sand from the beach. The tile floor gets slippery from both the sand and the water so do yourself a favor and bring a rug from home to wipe your feet.
5) Towels and wash cloths are in under the sink in both bathrooms - in case you are looking for them!!
6) Enjoy! It's a great house!
Southern Shores was absolutely perfect for our family! The home is spacious, updated, and SO close to the water! This was our first trip to Dauphin Island & certainly will not be our last!
The house was clean and very welcoming. And the deck, where we stayed for the most part, was wonderful, with the beach just afew steps away. The kitchen was nice, and spacious, with ample counterspace for meal prep. The comfortable bed and sliding doors in the bedroom made the experience even more luxurious, with the breeze and waves lulling you to sleep. Overall, I would rent this house again, and would highly recommend it to others who are looking for a really relaxing vacation.
This house is beautiful, beach front, and has everything you may need. We enjoyed our time on the beach, with it's soft white sands, and no competiton for the perfect spot. Outdoor shower made cleanup easy. Pleanty of room for 8 people even though our party only had 4. And they do have a propane grill which made cooking fresh seafood all the better! Highly recommend stopping to get fresh catch seafood up the road and grilling on one of your beach days. The area is cute with some good resturaunts and little shops. Property management was easy to deal with and answered questions. Would definately return for another trip!
This was a girl's trip for myself and 3 friends. "Southern Shores" is an amazing beach house and had everything we needed for a long weekend stay. Clean, comfortable and perfect location. We will definitely be back!
We loved the house. It was gorgeously decorated, modern and so comfortable. As a family of 7 we were so excited to see the house was very spacious. Being right on the water was so convenient and we have the beach to ourselves 90 percent of the time. We'd love to come back!
roomy, great location--will be staying here again
We have stayed in this home three times over the past three years. This home is dog friendly and yet is very clean. Tile floors throughout, so a simple sweep gets rid of the sand and hair. The split plan is perfect for two families.
Excellent location right on the beach! Every morning, I could just walk down the steps and wander along the shore. Loved that it was pet friendly and we were able to enjoy our vacation with our dog. Very roomy with an open layout and a large master bedroom. There were a few little things, like many light bulbs were burnt out, but that was about the only issue.
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and were able to take advantage of this home's stellar location! Thank you for letting us know about the lightbulbs so that we can make sure they are replaced. In the future, please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any needs that arise while in the home. We are happy to assist in addressing any questions or concerns to make sure you have an excellent stay. We look forward to hosting you again!
Right on the beach and as clean as you could ever hope for.
Wonderful open concept beach house with great views. All amenities need for a couple night stay were provided. No complaints here. Thank you again!
We had all rooms filled at one time some of the beds were not very comfortable. The beach front rooms were great. I loved the house it was a great set up for the beach life. We enjoyed use the home we had every thing we needed. The dishwasher was ok the stove fridge were good the washer and dryer we’re excellent. I left a list of things with the rental place that needed some attention. I would rent this home again.
We came down for a last minute trip on Labor Day 2018 with some friends. Luckily we left on Monday before the tropical storm hit. Always love DI.
This house is a great location and private towards the western end of the island and facing the Gulf. We had an awesome stay with perfect weather. There are signs of age showing inside and out, especially with furniture, beds and kitchen items.
only complaint we could have was the internet was down but it was due to a storm that knocked out the cell tower so it really could not be anyones fault we had a great time
Best vacation spot on DI! Right on the beach! Beautiful! Only downsides: Internet service did not work—nor did it last year. Kitchen and other towels allowed to mildew and we could not use them. Grill ran out of propane in the middle of our only grilled meal. Nothing major, but irritating things, considering premium price paid for “premium” property.
Otherwise, best family vacation spot on island!
Great family house. Had party of 4 adults and 1 baby. Weather was cold and very foggy but the home was warm and cozy. It is roomy and my only suggestion is tgat more eating utensils are needed. It can sleep 10 and even though we only had 5, we were constantly washing utensils. Great home, good location, great back deck and chairs for sunning. Resort Management took care of our request gor more towels as soon as we made the request. They were also very pleasant and professional. I highly recommend them.
This vacation was different than most of the beach vacations I take in the fact that I had never stayed on Daulphin Island. The entire experience was wonderful! The house was gorgeous, the bedrooms were perfect and the view was spectacular!!!
One of the best vacations we have taken.Had to leave alittle earley because of Nate. I hope this place is OK.
We vacation in Dauphin Island every year and love to stay at Southern Shores! The house is beautiful and has all the amenities we want. Best of all it is gulf front. Island Resprt Management provides flawless service. They always have the house ready for us and are quick to correct any issues we encounter during our stay and the only issue we had was the wifi password wasn't working and they gave us the remedy over the phone. We are already looking forward to next year's trip!
Family vaca age 4 months to 87 years. Fabulous home with private beach. Loved the local fish market, outdoor movies and fireworks display. Island was quiet - didn't feel like July 4th crowd. YEA! Will definitely go back to Dauphin Island - South side!!! Would recommend taking an iron skillet and a good knife. Towels had to be washed again- folded damp and mildew had set in. Need some simple instructions for getting tv on.
Other than tropical storm cindy, for 2 days ,our stay was great
All of us had a beautiful rental right on the beach for a family reunion. With the Beach and the ocean right down stairs and the small town with 3 restaurants not far of driving distance all with pleasant atmosphere's and great food we couldn't have picked a better place for our vacation!
This trip was dubbed 5 Sisters: 4 by blood, 1 by love. My three sisters, myself and a life-long family friend spent a glorious week at Dauphin Island. The house was amazing and the perfect size for us. We each had our own comfortable bed and the bathroom setup worked perfectly.
The house was exactly as described, clean and with excellent views. We loved the beach access and the ability to wash the sand off on both decks before entering the house.
We were notified upon arrival on a Saturday afternoon that the grill electric start was not working but on Monday it was fixed - we were provided a manual ignition to use in the interim.
We didn't partake of many local attractions or restaurants, but we did pick up some fresh seafood from Skinners to eat. So delicious...and a second visit netted some to take home!
We all enjoyed Dauphin Island so much and will be returning! I intend to stay at Southern Shores again!
Everyone had great time. Loved the location and layout of the home. Will definitely consider it next time.
Beautiful home. Loved the location, view and upgrades and layout.
However, it needs a deep clean. Surfaces were clean, but baseboards, under furniture, window sills, cabinets etc. were dusty and dirty. Also, dishwasher had large chunks of food in it and smelled horrible. Dishes in cupboards had been put away dirty (with food on them) and we had to wash almost every dish we pull out the first day or two. The grill is also in very bad shape.
Management company staff was very friendly and helpful!
We would love to visit again!
