After travelling 17 hours (all in one day) in a minivan with 4 daughters, opening the door to this lovely home was simply wonderful! We drove in driving rain, with poor visibility late into the evening. Having done most of the drive, I was extremely stressed and tired, but thankful to arrive safely. Once I opened the door, stepped in, the girls rushed to explore our home for a week. The accommodations were nothing short of superb! The privacy of the beach, the quietness of the area, low traffic, and general comfort of the home made our beach vacation. There were so many little details in the home that made it perfect. Play toys for the sand, plenty of entertainment available (games, books, movies), the entertaining deck below the home. Even an area of shade to play in the sand under the house. We fished from the shore, caught stingrays and local fishes. Our girls played in the water and on the beach daily. I just cannot rave enough about this home. What every you do, do not miss the mornings on the back deck or the sunsets from the beach! A complete moment of serenity.
Thank YOU home owner for sharing your space! I hope to visit again!

First of all, LOCATION! This was our first time visiting Dauphin Island, and I loved the slow pace. There were many times when my family were the only people in sight on the beach. We brought most of our groceries but also enjoyed some local seafood that we called in and picked up, steamed and delicious.

Then there's the home itself. Everything from the cleanliness, decor, and stocked features to the epic downstairs/ground level area to the hot tub on the back deck was flawless.

I will note: I must have missed that our beach is on the bay side, but it turned out to be just as well. My husband walked across the street to the ocean side and the neighbors said it was totally fine for us to come by and enjoy the gentle waves, but we ended up just staying on our side because of the privacy.

We weren't ready to leave and would love to return someday.

We loved this house for our family vacation. We had two families staying in this house. The two bedrooms downstairs were great for the parents while the kids had the upstairs to themselves. The outdoor living space was a nice alternative and I loved having access to both the bay and gulf sides of the ocean.

The house was perfect for our family of five and our dog! It’s so well equipped and the location was awesome. We loved being able to hear and see the Gulf from the front side of the house but have the serenity of the Bay from the back. We are already discussing our next stay there!

We loved everything about this house! Having your own piece of the beach just steps away is absolutely amazing! The beds were comfy, kitchen well-stocked, and the house very spacious for 7 of us. Thank you for allowing us to spend our vacation in your beautiful home!

Loved the beach on the quiet bay side. Home was perfectly laid out for our family. The deck underneath with hammocks and grill, the back deck, the front porch, the fabulous views from every window--made our vacation the best ever!

The home was wonderful!! Immaculate and beautiful. There were minor issues (wobbly table) but we fixed those with the help of the toy hammer. It was such a blessing to have a home on the island. We could not have asked for anything better!! The hot tub was a little disappointing but nothing to do with the company. Previous guests had allowed sand into the hot tub, so it was a little gritty on the bottom but the home and the surroundings are just contagious happiness. We will be back!!

Best home rental experience. They thought if everything and we needed it due to weather.

House was everything we expected. Plenty of room for our family of six.

This house was wonderful! We had no problems. Everyone had their own bedroom and bath. The location was awesome as well. We would definitely choose this house again. You won't be disappointed in this rental. The people on the island were welcoming as well. I hate that I've told others about it. They're going to want to rent it too! LOL!! Unfortunately, the best weather day was the day we left.
