We enjoyed our stay at Playa Mariposa. Clean and nicely decorated. Vacasa team was very helpful when we accidentally locked ourselves out. I am so appreciative of the Vacasa team 😃

We absolutely loved this house!! There’s a closet full of beach chairs, sand toys, and games. The kitchen is well stocked (toaster, multiple coffee pots, crock pot, and a magic bullet. Plus tons of cookware.) We also had access to a kayak and paddle boards. Having the deck was WONDERFUL!! There’s a hose and shower, which made it simple for us to fill a kiddie pool for my toddler when he got tired of the waves and the sand. Beds were comfy! And FYI, the couch pulls out into a bed and there’s trundle beds not only under the twins, but under the bunk beds, too! We will be back SOON!!
Manager response:

We love this house. We packed it full with our 6 month old twins, dogs, and adults. Perfect house for the group they can’t make the beach all day. Makes you feel directly at the beach the entire time.

This home has it ALL!! Beautiful and spacious, this home offers something for everyone! The owners have thought of everything and made our vacation memories better than we had hoped possible! We saw so much oceanlife right from our balcony (sting rays, dolphins, blue crab, etc.) - it was amazing!

I loved the house, the location, the island, the people. Falling asleep with the waves crashing was so restful. While the house is listed as sleeping 12 it could easily sleep more if you have children or teenagers. There are 2 huge beanbag chairs that our kids slept in several nights, Also the couch was slept on at various times. Everyone had a bed but the house was just overall comfort.

We loved the house, it is just as the pictures show. It was amazing to be in the water (inside the house). The beds and pillows were so comfortable. Everything was so clean. The cleanliness was appreciated, as our original reservation in Fl through another company was filthy. We left that day and were lucky to find this house. Everyone said they wanted to come back next year!
Jackie N. May 2021
Location was great. The local management was so helpful and responsive. The house had everything we needed. Very nice stay!!
Nick B. Apr 2021
Everything about the house and location was perfect. Management was great with answering questions. It was awesome being able to hear the waves throughout the house, even with the windows closed. The owners of this home are very nice and have lots of beach / water equipment to use.
Lisa B. Apr 2021
You will not regret this stay! Private, beautiful, very clean and literally over the gulf! We swam, fished, collected shells, and laughed until our cheeks hurt! We will be back! Don’t think about it, book it!
Amy B. Aug 2020
The house was literally steps from the water. The owners have kept the property very clean and have it stocked with anything you might need. We ate dinner every night on the deck and watched the waves roll in. We saw several dolphins every morning while we had our coffee. We will definitely stay here again. It set the bar very high!
Jason U. May 2020
The house is super kid friendly, they had lots of toys for them. Super cute 4 bedroom right on the water! We enjoyed many activities while we stayed and had the most amazing time! I highly recommend especially if you have kiddos!
Lucas S. May 2020
Awesome island, awesome house. Just what we needed for a long weekend!
Heather S. May 2020
I can’t say it enough. The location is the TOP on all of Dauphin Island!!
Kim D. May 2020
First time to Dauphin Island, want be the last. Beautiful place. If your looking for quite, relaxing, RIGHT ON THE BEACH, look no further. Clean and great decor. 2 beach chairs, paddle boards, kayak with life vests. I miss it already.
WESLEY R. May 2020
We just finished up our visit and could have stayed longer. There was plenty of room for my family of 5 and our family friends of 4. The kids (and parents) had a blast social distancing here! The owners happened to be in the area and were kind enough to loan us extra paddle boards and an additional kayak. Thanks to them we were all able to enjoy time up close with a pod of dolphins that were straight out from this beautiful home. We can't wait to visit again soon.
Wendell I. Apr 2020
Loved this beach house and how it sits right at the waters edge. We stayed here for 8 nights and could have stayed much longer!!
Kelly B. Mar 2020
You cannot get any closer to the water than this house as it literally is right on the water! We booked this house a week before coming as our Disney World trip was canceled due to Covid-19. This was the absolute best place to social distance ourselves from the rest of the world while still getting to enjoy this slice of heaven on the beach. The views from the two rooms with king sized beds is breathtaking. I woke up every morning looking out on the water & enjoyed stepping out onto the deck directly from my room. The other bedsrooms had plenty of space with one having two twin beds with trundles & the other room with a twin/full bunk bed/trundle. You can feel the Gulf breezes through the house with the windows open. The house was as described in the pictures. Clean, bright, and plenty of space to stretch out. Two of us are emergency department RN's & we were able to unwind to the sounds of waves crashing while reading books on the deck or beach. Plenty of sand toys (we used them to carry our haul of nice shells), a kayak, boogie boards, two paddle boards & a few beach chairs to use. Plus an outdoor shower to get the sand off before going into the house. My 2 adult daughters, 1 teen daughter & I had an amazing time here. We had never been to Dauphin Island before but we WILL definitely be back!!
Jonathan W. Mar 2020
Awesome home everything was as described great local people and the fishing was awesome and they have plenty of toys for sand and water for the kids will definitely be back soon
Brannon G. Mar 2020
We loved everything about it. The location, the weather, the accommodations. I highly recommend this to everybody who is considering this island. Thumbs up!!!

We Loved EVERY SINGLE thing about this Home! Tastefully Decorated Home, with room to spread out, comfortable beds, and amazing views!😍
Rebecca E. Dec 2019
We arrived on a cold rainy night to find no lights, no heat, and no hot water. We were told the owner thought he had fixed these problems, but could not get someone out to fix it properly for two weeks.
We had rented this house twice before and wanted to introduce more of our children to its lovely location. It was not a pleasant first night, but we were offered a different house the next day and moved there for the remainder of our vacation.
Manager response:
Rebecca, we sincerely apologize that these persistent electrical issues prevented you from enjoying another great vacation in the home. Due to the home's location and positioning, it has proven difficult to fully address necessary repairs. We are happy to report that these repairs are scheduled and we hope to have them addressed shortly. We look forward to hosting you for a great stay in the future!

This house is in the water, You do not have to take any steps other that to walk out your front door to play in the water/sand. Perfect location for family with young children. You just walk up your steps for lunch, naps or bathroom trips.
Catherin G. Oct 2019
Great location, house is awesome- laid out perfect for two families with master/bath and a kids room on each side with common area in middle. Fishing off deck was a great time we all loved- will be back.
Debbie T. Sep 2019
I absolutely love this house, this is the 2nd or 3rd time at this house. It has everything you need, and you literally just walk down the stairs and your on the beach. Will definitely be back again next year!
Jeffrey C. Sep 2019
The house was a great stay and in a great location. couldn't have asked for better.
Caroline Z. Aug 2019
Nice place to stay for a weekend ! Beautiful scenery. Toys for kids to play with and a lot of utensils in the kitchen. It was our first stay so close to the sea. We liked it but may not try the experience quickly gets noisy and pushes you back indoors. However everything described was correct.
Ryan K. Jun 2019
Great house!!
Alison F. May 2019
If you want a relatively quiet, relaxing time, mostly hanging on the beach, and with your dog, this is the one for you. Being right on the beach makes it so easy. Great for walking the dog, collecting shells, building sand castles etc. The home has all the modern comforts including good water pressure. Comfy beds - the sound of the waves lulls one to sleep at night. Bed/bath layout I thought was ideally for two families with children but it suited us well enough - a married couple with grown son and his uncle. Great deck we used it for eating meals, watching the birds and boats and my son and brother did a spot of fishing. Mostly gorgeous weather, on a couple of days we had to take advantage of some shade under the house! A storm on the second night kicked out the power (which was resumed within 24 hours) - this added to the excitement of the week and gave us an opportunity to (have to) go to Mobile exploring! We all had a wonderful time.
Sarah M. Apr 2019
We had a wonderful time at this home. It was beautiful inside and out. The beach was relaxing, there was a blue heron that came to visit us everyday. Dolphins swam within 50 feet of the deck, we caught several fish along with a hammerhead shark and a bull shark off the deck. There was a hammock to hang under the home which would be wonderful once the weather warms up. There’s always a nice breeze on the deck also. All bedrooms were wonderful. We enjoyed the rooms that were connected by a bathroom in order to keep an eye on our three year old. There was more than enough supplies/utensils for cooking large meals. Truly wonderful memories here and enjoyed the island also.
Henry H. Apr 2019
The beach house was exactly as advertised and we enjoyed our stay very much. If you want to be right on the water (which we did) this is the place for you.
Michal W. Mar 2019
Everything was wonderful so I will mention two issues I found annoying. One, you can not pull up to the property. The closest you can park is about 20 yards away. Second, I am a light sleeper so I could hear the waves crashing through the night. Make sure to take the earplugs if you are a light sleeper like myself. Other than that, wondrful stay.
Maryleee C. Mar 2019
It was awesome.. We will be back next year for sure..
It was everything the pictures posted said it would be..
The staff was above an beyond helpful... ( Elton)

House was nicely decorated, had all the amenities and located on a beautiful area of Dauphin Island. Made our family Thanksgiving trip one of the most memorable. Would definitely stay there again
Danielle S. Jul 2018
Our family has nothing but good things to say about this home and this company! We had thirteen people at the home and still had more than enough room for everything! The home is the perfect size and the bedrooms are comfortable and accommodating. The bean bags in the living room made the perfect addition and gave us enough space for everyone. The dining room and back porch were perfect for playing games and sitting around. The location of the house is so cool sitting right in the water with access to everything. We enjoyed stepping right out onto the beach everyday. The kayak and paddle board provided hours upon hours of enjoyment for everyone, each morning we had a couple of dolphins we were able to kayak right beside! All of the employees were exceptional and dealt with all of us constantly calling to make payments without hassle! The home had everything we needed for breakfast, lunch, dinner and they provided us with a blender and coffee pot per our request. I would recommend this house over and over again!!
Jeff B. Jun 2018
We absolutely loved this home and working with this rental agency. The house was perfect. The sound of the waves crashing right outside the house at night was the most peaceful thing ever. We laid in bed at night overlooking the gulf and it was surreal. This house is super kid friendly. I love being able to let my kids play in the sand under the house, out of the sun. We saw king crabs and dolphins from the balcony. Book this home, you won't regret it.

A wonderfully quiet week on Dauphin. House was perfect.
