Quiet, clean, great location to all of DI. Beautiful sunset views, well appointed. Easy walk via boardwalk to uncrowded dog beach, great fresh seafood from Skinners. True nature lovers paradise.

Nice condo on the Mississippi Sound side of the island. All the necessities there for cooking in the kitchen and playing on the beach. It is a lengthy walk to the ocean because the beach and dunes are very wide there. If you want some peace and quiet, DI in April is the place for you!

Very comfortable place to stay
Mackenzie W. Sep 2020
We had a lovely and very relaxing stay here! The condo is exactly as pictured. The furniture is all nice and comfortable and the kitchen had everything we needed in it to cook throughout our stay. The master bath was fantastic too- plenty of room! Everything was very clean as well with just one exception- the carpets are looking pretty rough and covered in all kinds of stains throughout the whole condo. There was also the faint smell of dog urine in the corner of the living room near the sliding doors and when we checked in it attracted our dog to it like a magnet, so might have been fresh. Being a dog friendly condo we understand things like that are going to happen and it wasn’t bad enough to diminish our stay, but I think it would be good to consider ripping out the carpets and putting down hard floors throughout so it doesn’t get to be a bigger issue. Other than that, we had a great stay and would certainly come back.

A few notes:
The beach is across the street but it has a fairly long boardwalk and a small set of stairs to get out there. It’s not technically far, but it feels pretty far if you are lugging a heavy cooler and a bunch of stuff. It takes like 10-15 min. Bring a rolling cooler if you can!!!

DO NOT try and get to the beach any other way than the boardwalk though unless you want to get completely mauled by mosquitoes...

Don’t leave the condo without bug spray!

The beach is beautiful and quiet and well worth it once you get out there.

Check out Skinners down the street for some really good seafood. We bought several things raw by the pound and cooked them throughout our stay. The blue crab claws and grouper we got was particularly good!
Manager response:
Mackenzie, thank you for your feedback! I'm so glad you loved our home. We apologize for the dirty carpets. We will let the owner know so we can get a solution planned. We hope to get another chance to host you in the future!

Dock area
Maddie J. May 2020
Several things were broken or might as well be broken. Amenities listed were not accurate. Left our high chair and play pen because we thought the home had one as listed, but that was inaccurate. Dishwasher doesn’t clean anything so you have to wash by hand. All the dishes were dirty in the cabinet when we arrived. We cleaned the entire place due to covid and it was astonishing the amount of dirt that came off the floors. Their mops were dry when we got there and there were guests immediately before us. We did have a surprise of kayaks provided to the building and we did not have use of the boat dock right by the building for whatever reason. Pretty quiet stay overall and because of the location we had a great time. The condo itself was a little disappointing though for the price we paid.
Manager response:
Maddie, we're so sorry for the disappointing experience during your visit. We are working diligently to ensure that all areas of concern are addressed appropriately. Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. We hope to have another opportunity to host you.

The availability of this condo was a welcome. The price was as reasonable as a motel room with much more amenities. Highly recommend this rental.
