The house was absolutely beautiful and it’s just steps from the beach. We’ve rented several different houses on Dauphin Island and this has been our favorite!

We loved our stay at this beach house! Perfect location, lots of room, comfy beds and stocked with anything we needed during our stay!
We enjoyed sitting on the deck listening to the waves roll in and picking up hundreds of shells on the beach!
The elevator made everything accesstfor our son who uses a wheelchair, and our dog Maggie enjoyed romping in the sand!!!
We had a wonderful family getaway!
The Vacasa representatives were helpful, communication was great and the house so clean when we arrived!
We hope to return because you know... Whatever She Wants!!! 😊

We absolutely loved staying at this well appointed beachfront home with our furbabies. So close to the shops, restaurants & pier as well. Right at the house we caught Bull Reds, Pompano, Trout, Croaker, Catfish & Sand Sharks. We grilled up yhr Pompano and Trout from the deck on their large grill which was amazing. Elevator made it extra nice for carting luggage and such and it was especially nice for our bulldog to avoid the stairs when she was too tired to do so. Our Pointer Mix loved the elevator too. Always a plus to find a home that offers one. We would definitely stay here again in the future. Love visiting this island each and every time.

Last minute surprise trip for my husband turned into planning future trips to this exact house with our babies yearly. Cannot wait to rebook in a couple months for December. We are hooked!

We loved everything about this property! Just feet from the water’s edge (Gulf side), beautifully appointed interior, roomy to the nth degree, totally supplied with any utensil or linen we could possibly need AND the FROSTING on the cake was the elevator!!! We will never rent again without an elevator and WhateverSheWants is at the top of our list. Awesome place!

My family thoroughly enjoyed staying here. The home was clean, spacious and directly on the beach. The kids were really impressed with the elevator and ice machine lol. The home did not have the usual sway from being raised off ground level and in windy conditions you couldn’t tell you were in a beach home which was a huge plus for us. Plenty of seating, new appliances and utensils. And a holiday card with my favorite chocolates as a gift (I swear I think they spied on me to know this lol)! Our vacasa rep Lola was hands down the most responsive and friendly rep I’ve ever encountered while vacationing in a home. Overall would definitely recommend this home and will hopefully return in the warmer months.

Plenty of space for the whole family, fully stocked. It even had a crockpot and huge pan so we could cook our turkey (stayed at Christmas time). Gorgeous view!
Be sure to read the manual about the elevator and how to work the TV. I didn’t notice it was in the folder until our stay was almost over.
Amy K. Dec 2020
We loved everything about this place. The elevator caught our attention because we have a 15-year-old Wheaten Terrier with severe joint problems. It turned out that it was easier to carry him down the stairs, but having the elevator was such a nice touch. Would definitely stay here again. First-class!
Catelyn P. Nov 2020
This home was very beautiful inside and out. Plenty of room. Very spacious. Would definitely recommend it to others and would love to go back.
Gilda H. Nov 2020
D.I. and "Whatever She Wants" is the place to go if you want privacy, beautiful sunrises and sunsets, and a beach that is covered with sea shells. This rental is exactly as the pictures show: super comfortable beds, a huge kitchen filled with everything you need: coffee filters, paper towels, plenty of ice, pots, dishes, etc. And the bathrooms are stocked with lots of towels, soap, and toilet paper. It was clean and comfortable and we would recommend it to anyone. Be sure you have the codes for the door and the elevator before you arrive.
Richard G. Oct 2020
We spent one week at this wonderful home. There were multiple things that we loved about this home, the very spacious kitchen and living area, easy home access via elevator, large porch with close proximity to the beach. Our next family vacation to Dauphin Island will definitely be spent at “Whatever She Wants”.
Michael K. Oct 2020
House was wonderful and close to beach
Steve G. Aug 2020
GREAT great place - clean - bright - perfect!!!!
Everything we needed was already there - and we had a full house! Thanks Owners and Vacasa! We'll be back!!!!!
Rob H. Jul 2020
The home was extremely clean and in great shape. No houses are blocking the beach view/access which is a huge plus. The elevator was extremely handy while handling luggage and groceries. We had absolutely no issues with anything in the house or cleanliness. Book this house with confidence!
Anna B. Jul 2020
Right on the beach and super accommodating for a large family (or two!)
Justin M. May 2020
This house was perfect for our group of 4 adults & 4 kids, we didn't even use one of the bedrooms. The house is fully stocked with anything you may need. We really enjoyed watching dolphins from the covered porch. Our kids hunted crabs right around the house. We've stayed at other houses on DI & this by far takes the cake. The elevator made it easy to unload & load everything. We are planning a trip back in the Fall.
Shelly L. May 2020
The beach house was perfect for our family of 10!extremely well stocked kitchen etc, tons of room and directly on the beach!We had an amazing stay and never left the house or the private beach!We will be back!also, the beds were very comfortable.
Whitney Z. May 2020
The house as amazing! The kitchen had everything you could possibly need! I loved being on the beach and just walking out the door to take a walk on the beach. A big plus was being able to bring my sweet fur baby, Tessa, with me! She loved the beach!
John H. Mar 2020
Very nice home, beautifully furnished, with four large, comfortable bedrooms and three bathrooms. Fully stocked kitchen. Dauphin Island is a bit remote with limited restaurants and grocery. Beach is beautiful but narrow. This is a perfect spot if you’re looking for a quieter, more secluded beach vacation.
Joseph H. Mar 2020
This new home has everything. Very comfortable and fully stocked. The porch is lovely. Highly recommend for anyone looking for a wonderful and relaxing time. we will be returning.
Nancy L. Feb 2020
I love the fact that it had an elevator, for those of us who have more difficulty getting around. The view was awesome. Cold and chilly, but awesome.
I did feel like the sheets were not clean. There was stuff at the end of the bed on the sheets that was there when we went to bed.
But otherwise the house was beautiful.
Manager response:
Thank you for your feedback following your stay, Nancy. We are glad to hear you enjoyed this beautiful home. We apologize for the unclean appearance of the sheets and for any inconvenience this may have caused. We have passed your comments along for our local manager to address with the housekeepers to ensure they are through with each clean between guests. We look forward to hosting you again!
