Clean and comfortable. Right on the beach with beautiful views. Well supplied with essentials. Would highly recommend!
Raymond W. Sep 2022
the home made it so easy for us to relax and enjoy the beach
Dana B. Jul 2022
We loved the proximity to the water!!! The house easily accomodated our family and dog. Four generations were able to be comfortable inside and outside on the deck.
Lindsey M. Jul 2022
Overall, the house was really nice, and a perfect location. 3 stars for several minor issues... None of the interior sliding doors were on the tracks, the clothes dryer only heated on one setting, we had problems getting any of the TV's to work (we have small children and we had a few days of rain). No salt/pepper or coffee filters in the kitchen.
With that said, would definitely stay here again. Would be 5 stars with those minor tweaks. We met Monique who had brought a cleaning crew back to the house because it wasn't up to her standards... So I would say customer service is top notch. Again, sounds like I'm being picky but when you're paying these prices, you expect the best.
Manager response:
Thank you for taking the time to share your experience, Lindsey! We're pleased you enjoyed the prime location of our home, though we sincerely apologize the maintenance concerns you encountered during your stay with us. Our local management was made aware and has addressed the issues with the doors, dryer, and TVs. To clarify, Pantry items like oils and spices are not usually stored in the home for sanitary purposes. We encourage our guests to bring any food-related items they may need during their visit. We appreciate your feedback so we may continually improve, and we hope for the chance to host you again soon!

The home is exactly as pictured on the website. Each of the 4 rooms has a private bathroom, so it’s perfect for multifamily vacations. We had a wonderful time on the beach and lounging on the deck.
The only drawback was the inconsistent/non-existent WiFi with little to no cellular signal (Verizon). We intended to check-in with the office periodically and send email, but we were unable… streaming anything for entertainment was impossible.
Kathy W. May 2022
This was our third visit to Southern Comfort and it was like coming home!

The views of the sea from this home are simply spectacular. We began our experience with Dauphin Island for a New Years Eve several years ago and when it was booked for last New Years we decided to try coming in May. Wow! What a fantastic experience!

This home is always super clean and that means a lot to us. It’s also right on the beach so you can wake up and walk downstairs to have your feet in the ocean.

We absolutely love it here and have plans to come back next year.
José David T. Apr 2022
We had a great time at this property. Nice balcony on the beach, spacious facilities, can accommodate comfortably a lot of people. I would love to stay there again.
Laura G. Mar 2022
Could not be more pleased with the location of this home! We will definitely be back!
Carole R. Mar 2022
We loved the location
Steve K. Dec 2021
House was exactly as described ... well furnished, comfortable ... and a fantastic location! We all completely enjoyed our time at the house and on Dauphin Island!
Alicia H. Dec 2021
Everything was absolutely perfect. The weather, the house, it’s location and the water could not have been better. The house was very comfortable and situated without any obstructions. Sunsets were gorgeous especially from the master bedrooms balcony. Dolphins were seen everyday from the deck. Highly recommend the Southern Comfort house and Vacasa for being a great property management co. Dauphin island is the best hidden gem.
Veronica S. Nov 2021
This was such a fun vacation. To start the home was immaculate and smelled so clean. The beds are very comfortable. The view was priceless, doesn't get any better. You walk down the steps to basically your own private beach with a few people walking by now and then. Already planning to book again! You can fish, there were people swimming (was a little too cold for us), shell collecting and beautiful walks. The home layout is great. There are a few things in the house that may not be perfect, but help is a phone call away and comes very fast, if needed.
ALEXIS M. Nov 2021
We had a wonderful time at Southern Comfort. My husband was able to telework from the kitchen table, and we loved being able to bring our dogs. Having the ocean on your doorstep was incredible - I woke up for every sunrise (which is not usually my thing). We didn't see many people, which was exactly what we wanted. The house was very clean, convenient, and comfortable. We are already trying to figure out when we can go back! Dauphin Island might be our new favorite beach spot. Thank you!
Laura W. Jul 2021
We loved staying at Southern Comfort for a week at the end of June! The house is big and open, clean, and to say it is on the beach is an understatement. The deck is in the ocean which is so cool. It’s located at a great part of Bienville Blvd, there were never very many people on the beach, not crowded at all even so close to a holiday weekend. The weather was great, 83 and windy, thunderstorms most nights, and the water is so warm, we could stay in it for hours.
Tammy H. Jun 2021
Such a great deck for the whole family to hang out, right on the ocean, amazing views!
Lucinda H. May 2021
Right on the beach and water! House has more things that what the listing says. Pack and play, blow dryers etc. Lots of things available that we wouldn’t have had to pack if we knew. We would book here again.
Caroline D. May 2021
This house was amazing!!! Very clean and spacious! Loved the views!!
Dominique G. Apr 2021
We were impressed with the house, and the ease of vacasa's directing us to it and accessing it. It is in a great location right on the water, with a great deck and the house designed for families and couples with great bathroom design per bedroom. It was also nice to have separate A/C controls on each floor. My only note (very minor) is that the house is 1 house away from public parking & access to the beach so other fishermen and families were coming right by. With that, we loved the house and would go back.
Laura N. Apr 2021
A beautiful, clean home with a gorgeous view. We loved this house - spacious, clean, updated bathrooms, kitchen, appliances and an awesome TV. We noticed they are building more beach houses closer to each other, Southern Comfort has plenty of space around it and not blocked in by other homes. Loved the wrap around deck with sturdy deck furniture. The winds are very strong on the island and we did feel safe in the house when the storms picked up. Lost power and the dishwasher needed service, the maintenance guy was there within an hour to re-program the dishwasher, thanks! Hope to return soon!
Lennox B. Feb 2021
If you need a vacation on the beach, literally! This place is it, you are on the beach, about ten feet from the ocean! It has all the amenities needed for a short vacay, if you are looking for luxury, this isn’t it but normal folks won’t be disappointed. Waking up to the beautiful sunrise and taking a stroll down the beach while watching dolphins and picking up sea shells was wonderful! I was disappointed with the WiFi, very spotty, rebooting the modem didn’t help, we called customer service and although they stated someone would come out, they never did. We used our cell hotspot but cell service on the island wasn’t good either. There’s also a few maintenance items that needs to be done on the home. Overall, we had a good time and enjoyed our stay.
Dawn S. Feb 2021
Large deck that wraps around east, west and south sides of the house for amazing views of the sunrise, sunset, dolphins, etc. Odds are there is always a place to escape wind on a cold day! All of the doors from the great room open up to the deck for a feeling of one room.

The master bedroom has its own balcony with a perfect view of the sunrise from your bed.

We stayed here for the entire month of January 2021 and enjoyed it very much.
Melissa B. Dec 2020
We’ve been to Dauphin Island many times and loved our stay in this house. You can hear the waves all day and night long, and the. Just trot down the stairs and have your toes in the sand. House is very clean and comfortable.
Rhonda B. Sep 2020
First of all, we only got to stay for 2 nights because Hurricane Sally ran us out. The house itself was really close to the water which was awesome. The unit was updated and nice! The kitchen was well stocked. One issue I had, was there was not a hairdryer (I asked the chatbot and it said there was) and the mattresses need replaced. Also, The sink in the master bedroom would not drain. All these things could be fixed. Someone just needs to address it.
Teresa W. Jun 2020
Very spacious house with plenty of room for your family. Very close to the water.
Jenny M. Jun 2020
We had the best time at the beach this year! The house is so close to the beach which makes it super easy to take a few things down with you but go back up for that one toy you forgot. There are a few things needing updates. Door knobs. Light bulbs. Kitchen utensils and pans. But overall a great house. Also, I didn’t realize the house was close to what seemed to be a public access area of the beach. So there were a few more people close by than I expected.
Peter A. May 2020
You are right at the beach in this one. Really clean and what you would expect to see well furnished. Kitchen had all you need plus some. Jack and Jill bathroom on first floor was different.
Greg S. Mar 2020
The large enclosed furnished deck is right on the water and is the highlight of the house. The deck opens off a large comfortable great room gives the whole place an indoor/outdoor feel. The location is perfect and the house is perfect for the location.
Rechele M. Feb 2020
We loved that this house was right on the beach. We went to bed every night to the crashing of the waves and beautiful sunsets. We also woke up every morning to the crashing of the waves and beautiful sunrises. The house had everything we needed and could have wanted in a rental property. I would recommend this home to all my friends and family. A great time as had by all. Thanks!
Russell W. Jan 2020
We spent four days here and couldn’t be more impressed by the house, the beach, the island!! It was all amazing! This house is immaculate and I loved that it is right on the beach! The kitchen is well-stocked and they have spices in the cabinet for you! We came to relax and enjoy the view and loved it so much that we are already planning a return trip later this summer!

What a great place to relax and unwind! The beach is quiet, the house is spectacular, And the beds are super comfy.
Joseph L. Dec 2019
Beautiful place to stay!
Michael D. Dec 2019
The Southern Comfort home on Dauphin Island was a great choice for a family Thanksgiving at the beach. The rental, check in, and check out processes all went very smoothly. The home was clean, well stocked, excellently situated, and had everything we needed.
Leah P. Jul 2019
This home is beautiful and very comfortable. It worked beautifully for our entire family. Plenty of space and and large common area. Being right on the beach was wonderful! Definitely want to stay here again.
Terry T. Jun 2019
We loved this home and the family atmosphere of the island. We arrived and the waves was actually crashing under the house! We will definitely be going back.
Laramie G. Jun 2019

Stephen W. Jan 2019
House was perfect and exactly as advertised. Absolutely stunning views and relaxing atmosphere! Didn't want to leave!
Kimberly H. Sep 2018
True comfort, Awesome home, Awesome views, Awesome R&R
Jeremy S. Sep 2018
The house was clean and comfortable. The views amazing. Being on the west end is preferable for us as we like quiet and relaxed. My family and I will definitely be back. You cannot go wrong with this house.
Tracey C. Sep 2018
House was in very good shape and had all amenities as described in the brochure. Location of both the house directly on the beach and the island overall were perfect.
KATHY C. Aug 2018
The home was very clean and lovely. We had internet connectivity issues a time or two but the staff came out immediately to correct it and was as kind as they were responsive. A great week with family and it was exactly what we needed.
Kristen B. Jul 2018
Southern Comfort was wonderful. The home is clean, modernly updated with a comfortable and beachy interior. We LOVED the huge deck overlooking the beach. Walking just steps to the water was a huge plus! We saw a lot of sealife and late night crab hunting was awesome! The only downside to the area is a lack of activity. 5 our of 7 days the beach was not swimable due to jellyfish and we ran out of things to do fast. However, we did put our car on the ferry and played in Gulf Shores and that was an easy/fun way to fill the time! Don’t get me wrong- if you want a week to relax in a great home on the beach- this House is perfect!
Nancy C. Jun 2018
Loved the how close the house was to the beach. However towels needed to be replaced badly. Also kitchen pots and pans.
Ted S. Jun 2018
Very comfortable home. Highly recommended for groups of 6. Only negative is the second bed upstairs was only a double. Wouldn’t be comfortable for 2 people. Small room.
Laura H. Apr 2018
A wonderful vacation in the perfect house right on the beach!
Janet A. Apr 2018
My husband,myself, 3 adult children and spouses and 3 grand babies ages 2, 1 and 2 months. Each couple had their own room and bath. Loved that the upper deck was gated so the little ones could safely play outside when we weren’t on the beach. Loved all the windows! Kitchen was supplied for the home cook. Great location! Would highly recommend this home! Not one complaint!
Benjamin B. Mar 2018
We spent our Spring Break at Southern Comfort and loved every minute. The home was spacious, clean, and well cared for. We woke every morning to a sunrise and waves lapping on the shore and closed the day with beautiful sunsets. In between, we filled our days with sitting on the beach, walking on the beach, and swimming. If you’re looking for a week to remember, rent Southern Comfort and you will have a great vacation.
Susan M. Oct 2017
My husband and I rented this beautifully renovated home in October 2017 and enjoyed our stay. The floor plan is open with excellent views of the water while the kitchen has all the utensils and cookware needed. The master suite and bath are upstairs with a lovely gulf view.
Aaron M. Sep 2017
An excellent property in a beautiful place! We loved our time spent here!
Scott L. Sep 2017
Very relaxing weekend. Family friendly. Get up at sunrise to enjoy the dolphins. Chase the crabs on the beach at night.
Tom B. Jul 2017
Great location - great house - doesn't get any better.
Gary K. Jul 2017
good times
Susan H. Jun 2017
The house was wonderful....even better than expected. Lots of extras. Table and chairs in the shade near the water. Hoses to spray off on both sides. A deck with great furniture. The kitchen have everything you could need. Nice gas grill. We will be back.
Patricia R. Jun 2017
Great location, didn't have to drag things to the beach, we were living on the beach! House had everything needed. Plenty of deck furniture and under the house! Thanks!
Steve R. May 2017
I’ve had the opportunity to stay in many VRBO properties across the US and Mexico. Some of those properties were quite large (8+ bedrooms) and/or expensive ($10 - $15K a week). Previous VRBO properties were (mostly) accurately described, complete with professional quality photos. I’ve never had a “bad” experience as I typically get exactly as expected (and paid for).
This property was different. The experience far exceeded my expectations. The owner and the management company have done an excellent job keeping the property in top notch shape.
The layout of the home was nearly perfect. Master on the second floor. Each room has its own bathroom and shower. The two bedrooms on the main floor have their own bathroom and share a shower.
The location is one of the best on the beach. While we had people camped in front of the unit’s beach one day (the public beach access is a couple of houses down), we simply “camped” our beach chairs directly in front of the unit and our space was never encroached upon again.
The property’s ACs crank out cold air. Most nights, my group turned up the temp as they were “cold”.
The weather during our stay was mid to high 70s with rain each day. On some days, we shut off the AC and opened the doors and enjoyed fantastic ocean breezes. Alternating the sound of waves, rain and thunder. It was fantastic.
The deck furniture was top notch and we enjoyed breakfast and dinner on the deck each day.
Thanks to previous guests (or the management company) we had many of the staples you’d expect – trash bags, foil, salt pepper, tea, coffee, etc. We replenished what we consumed and hope the next guests enjoy leftover trash bags, paper towels, etc.
The management company was responsive and prompt when we had an issue (even on a USA holiday, three-day weekend).

We will be back and bring more family next time.
