NEW LISTING! Gulf-front home w/multiple decks & amazing views steps from beach
Built in 2017, this Gulf Front elevated two-story beach house sits directly on the Gulf of Mexico's white sandy beach, with unobstructed views of both the Gulf of Mexico and the Bay. Located on Dauphin Island’s West End, you'll have three spacious decks to sit and watch the kids play in the Gulf, enjoy breathtaking sunrises, or occasionally spy for dolphins.
The main living area of the home features gorgeous Gulf views and an open floor plan that opens to a large partially covered deck. The lower deck is on the beach and offers shade from the hot summer sun, as well as an outdoor shower with hot and cold running water. The kitchen offers plenty of counter space and a large island with seating for five. A built-in stainless steel commercial microwave and dishwasher, as well as a full-size electric range and refrigerator, complete the fully equipped kitchen.

The location of this house is wonderful, at the end of the beach, quiet, close walking distance to the public beach. The unit was in excellent condition, very clean, well stocked, loved the layout. The decks are small, especially the lower level one. We read in one review that bikes were available, but we did not have any, however there was a kayak and paddleboard. The major negative of the unit is no outside lighting at night. We did not realize this when we left in the morning and did not return until after dark. I actually tripped on a piece of blacktop that was in the sand. Also, it would be easier to get to the unit if a path was cleared through the sand.
Hi Don, I really appreciate your feedback and I'm very sorry to hear that you were unhappy with your stay. Longboard has motion sensor lights on the beach house, but the direction of the lights are adjusted for both safety and for sea turtle conservation efforts. I will check that the lights are working properly and readjust as needed. Additionally, most paths that are man made are only temporary on the west end of the beach and the sandy terrain changes weekly, if not daily. I will note this in our description so future guests are aware of their sandy path to the door. Again, thank you for your comments.
This was our first beach house. I absolutely loved the island and how close the Beachhouse was to the ocean. We had plenty of room on the front side of the house and the back side for the kids to play. We enjoyed the paddle Board and kayak greatly. The house was stocked full of games and dishes and was very well-kept and clean.
From beginning to end, this vacation was fantastic. Booking online, ease of communication, promptness of services and quality of product. My family and I were very happy with the home! The cleanliness of the home on arrival was amazing(I am very particular about hygiene)! Location, location, location! Morning walks on the beach and ending with crab hunting at night- perfect destination! ( No jellyfish!) The kids loved the wakeboard, paddle board, beach toys and bikes that are with the home- that was a great surprise!!! Two outdoor areas to rinse off the sand were well planned. The kitchen was well thought out and stocked with many items to make the week flow easily. Dining/living area were perfect for a crowd!!! Of course the two decks were amazing! Privacy and views were incredible! The game closet was so thoughtful- we stayed to busy to utilize any movies or games but having them just in case was nice. The beds, mattresses and linens were of good quality and no one complained of not getting a good nights sleep!
Can’t say thank you enough for a memorable vacation!
The Longboard was an amazing retreat for our family of 13. We loved the remote aspect of the House and the Island itself. The house was outfitted with many amenities that we didn’t expect like paddle board and kayak! The location was amazing with your own private beach. We were completely satisfied and are considering making it an annual event provided our family doesn’t grow any bigger. Do yourself a favor and pick this place for your next vacation!
Our family of 6 adults and 5 kids had a blast here! Some of the family never left the property because we enjoyed it so much! We didn’t have a DVD player upon arrival and had some WiFi problems but the office fixed that ASAP for us! They also brought a new bike to the house which was perfect because we were wanting to ride bikes! Loved every minute of it! Perfect! Except for the gnat bites! Be sure to bring bug spray!
Great home, amazing location, peaceful island, and much more. This is a perfect getaway to Dauphin Island. The rental process was super easy from initial reservation all the way through departure. We will definitionally be back!
We had a wonderful time with our crew of 9 at the Longboard! The home was equipped to make us feel right at home. We have been to a variety of beach homes and this one was definitely the closest to the water. The shell hunting and wildlife were fantastic. What a fun week. We plan on going back.
Spent 7 days relaxing. So close to the beach and played with the dolphins everyday
