This was our first experience with a beach rental. We have previously only stayed in hotels. We are hooked! The house was clean and well equipped. The pictures were quite representative of the house. We brought the dog and were very pleased to see the leash laws were generally well respected (our dog is not friendly with other dogs, so loose dogs are a problem). We were also very happy to see gates on the deck landing, which allowed the dog to be off leash, but safe, on that wonderful deck.
The house was beautiful and very convenient to everything. Than you
The house is about 120 ft. from the beach. It’s beautifully decorated with a huge deck. The deck is a bit weathered but we enjoyed every evening out there. The spacious kitchen is well stocked with utensils and cookware. Bring a few plastic containers for left overs. We left a couple there. The ice maker is a bit slow. The master suite is very spacious. We absolutely loved our vacation to celebrate my parents 70th anniversary! I loved this house and the island! I recommend Skinners and Islanders for good food.
You cannot beat the location and view from this property. Directly on the beach, have your coffee while listening to the waves and watching the dolphins swim by. We saw dolphins every day during our visit.
On the downside, I would recommend that the owner upgrade kitchen tools. Also providing some additional serving bowls and platters would be helpful.
This was our second stay at this property. As expected everything was great.
Absolutely loved the location and the cleanliness of this home. The only thing that would improve would be to have more of the staples in the house such as oil, paper towels, beach towels etc. But overall I would definitely go back!
The home was decorated with style and very clean. Fantastic master bedroom with comfy King bed, dual sinks and walk in closet. Very open plan so you can see the water from kitchen, dining snd living area. Nice large deck although the cold weather kept us from fully enjoying it. Rental staff very nice and helpful. We hope to return someday.
We enjoyed our stay at beachside! Very comfortable, steps to Gulf and beach. Rental was clean and comfy
Excellent vacation home lived up to the pictures...Well maintained, clean and very nice...all the close to the Gulf...We had a perfect week of weather, immediate;y before the Texas hurricane....Kudos to the managing company for a job well done.....The Island was very quiet as school had started for many....I think rent rates should drop in mid-August to reflect this rather than Labor Day....School starts 2-3 wks earlier than when I attended....We were surrounded by empty homes.......Peace and quiet in a lovely place
It was our first experience in Alabama/Dauphin Island! Booking, Communication and solving minor issue (grill was out of gas) was pleasant and Easy. Few steps from the beach, comfortable house.
Our stay at Beachside was amazing! The house was perfect for our family of six adults and two young children. Right on the water so we could easily go back and forth between the house and beach. I highly recommend this property!
We had a wonderful vacation at Beachside the first week in July. We arrived during a downpour, but the rest of the week was sunny (and a bit windy). The wind cools down the heat so wouldn't have changed it. The ocean was fabulously warm and the sand is so white! (I am more familiar with the Atlantic Ocean beaches so this was a real treat.) The house is well-appointed, but bring lots of groceries since there isn't a fully-stocked grocery store on the island. We frequented the seafood store, which was great and owned by a nice family.
Phil was super -- the kitchen faucet wasn't functioning correctly but he promptly sent a very nice plumber to replace it. The grill hadn't been cleaned in a while, but other than that the place was spotless. The house used to be the first on the ocean, but another house has been built slightly to the left of the ocean view. Not a problem if your expectations are set. You can rent kayaks delivered right to your doorstep! Will be back!
