We LOVE Daulphin Island & this house was just perfect!! Can’t wait to come back 😊
Elaine B. Oct 2021
Beautiful home, great accommodations. Pictures are a bit deceiving in that it is not clear there is another house in front partially obstructing the view. Upkeep on outside of home is much needed but didn't bother our stay any. Had a great time!
Joyce F. Sep 2021
Loved everything about this house! The beach was right there. Very clean and loaded with all what you need
Amanda H. Aug 2021
The house was beautiful and the staff was amazing to fix a few minor inconvenience quickly (internet ect…) The house had just about everything we needed and was very clean. I would recommend it over and over again! The only thing that we would say you need to keep in mind is that the water pressure in the showers isn't that strong but it’s Adequate for cleaning up.
Lana W. Aug 2021
We had a group of 5 couples for a weekend getaway. Overall, the house was wonderful. Great location and it comfortably fit us all! The only complaints were that the siding is gone from two sides of the house and I’m afraid the house is starting to mildew some because of it. It had a slight smell of mildew when we arrived. The swing downstairs is also broken and needs to be replaced. Other than that, great place. If the siding gets fixed, we will definitely be back.
Manager response:
Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us, Lana. We are glad to hear you enjoyed your stay at our home and we appreciate your suggestions for improvement. We have a contractor scheduled to repair the sliding in the next weeks. We haven't find mildew in the home. Our maintenance team will also replace or repair the swing. We look forward to hosting you again soon!

The house is really cute, very clean. Perfect for our family. Walk right out onto the beach.
Stacy M. Apr 2021
We enjoyed our stay at Goin' Coastal. The house was very clean and well-maintained. We brought our dog and the back deck was perfect for her to run around. Was so happy that there was a gate to the deck so we had no worries about our dog getting out. The view is partially obstructed by another house on the left side but, you still have a good view of the ocean. We had a wonderful time! Can't wait to go back.
Jennifer S. Apr 2021
The location - right on a quiet beach without a condo in sight - is fantastic!
Tom D S. Apr 2021
The house was great for our family. It was not too far from the beach. However it is in need of some serious repairs on the outside. The siding was off and what was left the wind kept banging on the wall day and night. We had a bad storm come through and lost our satellite and internet service. The maintenance person and manager tried to help but could not reach the owner. Direct TV was a no show. I didn't mind too badly but the grand kids weren't connected. We would come back again if assured the repairs were made.
Manager response:
Hi Tom! Thank you for taking the time to leave us this feedback! We apologize that we missed a few details prior to your arrival, as it is never our intention to disappoint. We have passed these comments along to our local staff and homeowners so that we can get these issues addressed as quickly as possible. We do hope that we have another chance in the future to impress you!

We loved everything about the house. The decor is beautiful. Will definitely be coming back.
Patricia H. Nov 2020
The oven doesn’t reach temperature and kitchen doesn’t have everything you need to cook. Called for help with internet and no call back.
Manager response:
Hi, Patricia! We are so glad you stayed with us and apologize if we missed getting back to you during your visit. We will ensure all contact numbers are up-to-date, and maintenance will handle the oven and internet. Thank you!

House has everything we needed.
Joy M. Jun 2020
The house was gorgeous. I love the decor, the big space and the view! I wish we could’ve stayed longer. We’ll be back next year!

We loved everything about our stay at the property- highly recommend!

This was our family's first time to visit Dauphin Island. It did not disappoint. Goin' Coastal was a great fit for our family of 6 (4 kids). There's a nice view of the Gulf from the back deck. House is situated only yards away from the beach. Great spot for morning and evening walks (when tide is not too high), scavenging for sea shells, building sand castles, fishing from shore, swimming, riding wake boards, or just relaxing on the beach. We saw several dolphins most mornings following the shrimp boats. We also enjoyed the frequent "flybys" from brown pelicans and sea gulls. Goin' Coastal has a cluster of houses near it for those who don't mind having neighbors. Even with neighbors, we still had at least 20-30 yards of open on each side of us for those concerned about social distancing. Kitchen is equipped with appliances (including blender) and cookware you will need to cook while you're there. For those used to staying in beach houses that provide it for you, please be sure to bring your own beach towels, umbrellas and chairs as they are not provided. Our family loved our time on Dauphin Island and staying in Goin' Coastal. We look forward to our next visit.

as advertised, family had a great time -- thanks!!
Christian B. May 2020
You’re directly on the beach (yes there is a house that partially obstructs the view, but you still have great views). Clean, well-appointed. Bring beach towels. Property management was extremely responsive and helpful, but the internet was out for the entire stay. Would definitely stay again!
Curt T. Feb 2020
House was beautiful, vacation was great. Deceptive pics of location- there is a house directly in front blocking the beach- not shown on the website. Not cool!
Frank S. Jan 2020
The house is perfect and exactly as pictured. As well, we called Vacasa on two occasions (locked ourselves out and the internet) and they helped us quickly and with smiles on their faces! Will be back!
Mark G. Dec 2019
Great house with all the amenities needed for a relaxing stay, and its right on the beach too!!

loved the feel and location of the house. things you should know. they have bath towels, but no beach towels available. they have extra bath towels under the bath sinks in the cabinets below. they have a couple of beach chairs available to use, and on the deck they have some lounge chairs to use in for laying out, or taking a nap.
the washer and dryer is full sized and work great. they washer has some mildew, because of the area, and it being a front loader. the screen door on the right was broken when we arrived. the nonshared bath room has a bath/shower combo which is great for kids, but the door is hard to close and move back and forth. i assume it's rusted, or off it's track. definitely needs attention. lastly the recliner in the living room has an area where the material has come off at the footrest.
as for dauphin island is concerned the beach is good. it's not the emerald waters of the panhandle, but the kids still enjoyed it, and i enjoyed picking up all the oyster shells that wash up.
the sealab, and fort gaines were enjoyable for us as a family. we went to greers in bayou la batre for groceries. they are open till 9. dinner was there too at was really good!
Manager response:
Thank you for staying with us, Matthew! We will be replacing the screens right away. We have discussed protocol for keeping the washer clean and fresh-smelling with our housekeeping team, and maintenance is handling the bathroom door. We hope to see you again!

Peaceful dreams! Couldn’t have had a more relaxing time anywhere else in the world. Felt like we were the only ones on the whole island.
Melissa B. Aug 2019
Great vacation home, plenty of room for 5 adults and 2 kids !
Melinda G. Jun 2019
Loved the openness of the Goin Coastal beach house. The Gulf facing deck with nice sturdy outdoor furniture/ table was so nice to sit outside first thing in the early morning to have coffee/ breakfast. Very well sound insulated home & comfortable beds. It was quiet & relaxing.
Susan M. May 2019
We spent most of our time by the beach and on the back deck with that picturesque view of the ocean. Modern updated furniture, fixtures and appliances. So close to the ocean you could also see dolphins and search for crabs at nighttime. Thanks for a great family vacation.
Brian W. Apr 2019
Very nice house. Lovely beaches.
Zachery G W. Apr 2019

Satin H. Jun 2018
Loved the house (space, character, furniture, and kitchen) and proximity to the beach.
michelle s. May 2018
We vacation at the beach every summer and wow - this home is a showstopper! Right on the beach, one story so you don't have to climb a billion stairs each day. This home was clean, newish everything.. and a great layout! Will be looking to rent again!
Jennifer M. Mar 2018
We had a great time at this beach house. It was clean and gorgeously decorated and I loved the floor plan. It is right on the beach although there is another beach house blocking about half of the view was still gorgeous and perfect for us!!!
Karen G. Jan 2018
We had a wonderful relaxing time in this beautiful home. This is a new home with very nice furnishings. The beautiful unobstructed ocean view was breathtaking. I loved hearing the waves and completely enjoyed watching the birds. We found new shells every day! In addition to the wonderful house and great views, the local people are welcoming and friendly. This was our first trip to Dauphin Island but we plan to return!
Karla W. Nov 2017
My family and I decided to do something different this year for Thanksgiving. I brought my mom, both of my children and their families for a beach Thanksgiving. The house was fantastic! Right on the beach and plenty of room. We will definitely be back. Thanks for sharing your beach house with us.
Elizabeth S. Sep 2017
We loved the house and loved the island it was a great vacation for our first family trip.
margot m. Aug 2017
Goin Coastal was the perfect place for our family vacation. It fit the five of us with plenty of room to spare- four yr old, 2.5 year old, three month old, husband and myself. Oh, and our dog! The house was clean, right on the beach, had everything you could need in the kitchen.
The air conditioner broke our last day there and the rental company was very helpful in getting it fixed. They were so kind, and easy to rent through.
Sara R. Aug 2017
Had an amazing time staying at Goin' Coastal! Beautiful home, well laid out for our family, & very well organized rental company. Can't wait to return!

This was a beautiful home in a beautiful location! We couldn't have asked for anything more. ????
John M. May 2017
Wonderful even though it rained every day.
Estelle D. Apr 2017
The experience with this rental co was superb. House is new and has top notch appliances and furniture. Very close to the beach with a great view. Just be prepared for meals because not many choices close by and grocery availability on the island is limited. Also be sure to check closing times for shops etc. Lighthouse bakery closed at 3:30 and Ft. Gaines closed at 5:00. This was in April so it probably varies in summer months. Beach was very clean and people very friendly.
Shannon D. Mar 2017
Great private location for spring break. We have a family of all ages and everyone was pleased. Will rent again!
Nisey S. Mar 2017
Beautiful home & Perfect location on the beach! You can't go wrong with this property!
