Maggie and Matthew C. Apr 2022
Apartment overall was nice and clean but it could really use a facelift! Upholstery was worn and dirty, as were the rugs/carpet. Kitchen was well stocked, but three of the cabinet doors would not stay closed. We are not overly picky, especially on a beach vacation, and for the price ($97/night) we felt like we got a pretty good deal. If we had paid a lot more than that, though, we would have been dissatisfied. The jacuzzi tub didn’t work. Also, when we used the air conditioning the unit vibrated loudly, which made it hard to fall asleep. Hopefully they will get that fixed ASAP! Great view of the beach and Gulf from the balcony. Complex property is very well maintained.
Manager response:
Hello, Maggie and Matthew. Thank you for sharing your feedback and bringing some items to our attention that need to be addressed by our team. We will make sure to clean any worn areas on the carpet and upholstery. While we have not heard any issues with rattling or vibration from the AC unit, we will check it. The jacuzzi tub is not working and is not included in the advertised amenities of the home. There are no plans to fix it at the moment. We hope we can have another chance to host you!

Second floor condo with gorgeous views of sunrise/sunset and everything else. Nothing between me and the white beaches of the Gulf. Miles of walking beaches with few to no people in sight. Lagoons, forest with bird sanctuary, calm bayside of island with trails to loud wavy gulf side!!
Was lucky to catch local Mardi Gras parade within easy walk from condo.

Great condo with an affordable price. Easy access to everything on the island with a beautiful beach view.

Loved the location
Abby W. Jan 2022
Loved the place, large open space, balcony, 2 bathrooms, open kitchen, walked on the beach every morning, heated pool was awesome! The only bummer was the jacuzzi wasn’t working when we were there. Vacasa refunded some of the cost to make up for that.

This place was comfortably large enough for 4 people. Nice patio to watch gulf and hear waves with no buildings in sight. Not many people around so quiet time was easy to find. Access to beach down nice boardwalk. Nighttime sky was amazingly clear and bright.

A crowded Beach this time of year means upwards of 20 people with miles of sand to view. At times mine were the only footsteps in the sand. Watch ghost crabs as they wandered, spotted dolphins very nearby while they fed. Sunrise and sunset was beautiful be the sky cloudy or Crystal clear. Lots of sand with an easy firm walk at low tides and soft walk when the waves were heavy and the tides are in . Second story view was the best I could ask for. Enough restaurants nearby with all the seafood you could want. Beach walkers were kind with many hellos.

We are so grateful to have been able to spend 5 restful days on Dauphin Island. The community is working hard at cleaning up from Hurricane Sally, which hit 2 weeks prior to our visit. The condo complex and beach area were pristine, and, thankfully, undamaged, as far as we know, except for some roof issues that were under repair. Our condo was lovely, spacious, and clean, with a beautiful beach view. Very few people were around, which made it easy to socially distance and enjoy the beachfront. Sunsets and moonrises were spectacular!
The kitchen is supplied with a few basic cooking tools. Towels and toiletries were generous.
Coffee filters, dish soap, kitchen sponges, and salt and pepper are not provided, and would be helpful to have.( We left some filters for the next guests.)
The few negatives were: AC wasn't cooling the first 24 hours. ( However, Vacasa Team was easy to reach, and very responsive. It was refilled with coolant around 5:30 PM and all was fine afterward.) Slider screen had a fist-sized hole in it, which welcomed mosquitoes. ( Could've been recent storm damage. We just stuffed a tissue into it.). Balcony table top was missing, but that, too, could've been from the hurricane. We know it takes time to set things right after such an awful weather event. So glad no further damage was evident for the owners!
We would definitely recommend both Vacasa and this rental unit!
Manager response:
Hi, Teresa! We do provide dish soap and a new sponge and apologize if housekeeping missed this. We greatly appreciate your patience as we set everything back to rights after the hurricane and hope to see you again.

Very spacious for my family , pool area was great, and great beachfront view
Kyla E. Jul 2020
Door broken in smaller bathroom. Master bed was very uncomfortable, not enough towels and pots and pans. But that was all overlooked until discovered the dryer did not work and couldn’t get anyone to come fix it. Other than that great beach and pool. Loved our first trip to DI!
Manager response:
Hi, Kyla! Thank you for taking the time to share your review. The dryer and door have been repaired, there are new towels, pots, and pans, and the mattress has been flipped. We hope to see you again!
Erick F. Jul 2020
The location and whole property were great, this particular unit is old and worn out.
Manager response:
Thank you for staying with us Erick! We are happy to hear that you enjoyed the location of your stay. We value your suggestions surrounding the condition of the home and welcome the opportunity to improve our homes for future guests. We hope to host you again!
Ryan M. Jul 2020
The condo was great! Beautiful view, short walk to the beach, and places to eat right across the street! The Master bed could use some love. Very hard, even just an egg crate would help.
Ashley K. Jun 2020
Loved this condo, had wonderful views and short walk to beach!
Kyle J. Jun 2020
Great location, short walk to the beach and food. Semi-private beach that was not crowded at all, and two heated pools to relax at night. Great family friendly location.
Jw M. May 2020
206A at Beach Club had everything we needed for a perfect stay at Dauphin Island! Excellent location, easy parking. Paradise view from the living room-kitchen- and private balcony. Plenty of cooking utensils in the kitchen and so much room inside the condo! We loved staying here, Thanks!!!
Jonathan H. May 2020
Was a fabulous couple of days! Condo was furnished great and had all the towels and kitchen utensils we needed! Only a couple of down falls from the trip. The page doesn’t tell you how long the walk is to the beach, so you must have a cart to carry your beach essentials. The queen bed is VERY VERY STIFF! And if you have a partner who is restless in their sleep, you will hear, and wake up to their every move during the night. The front door is a bit weak of a door, so the whole time we had a stench of weed in our whole condo that came from the adjoining condo. Finally, for some reason the gate code you are given they the app stops working after the first day (Luckily there was a owner of a different condo coming in behind us, so they let us use their code the rest of the trip), when trying to contact the customer support text message you are given upon arrival (at 4:55PM), I finally received a text back (at 11:16PM)..... Kinda late response in my opinion.

Overall I would recommend to “friends,” but for me to invite my family I would recommend some upgrades.
Manager response:
Jonathan, we appreciate your thoughtful feedback. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay. We apologize for any inconvenience you experienced during your stay. To clarify, this unit is about an 8-minute walk to the public beach. There is also direct beach access from the Dauphin Island Beach Club. Along with that, this property does not permit any smoking on the premises. We apologize for any issues regarding the smell of smoke. Lastly, we apologize for the delayed response regarding the gate code. Our team has been experiencing an unprecedented number of calls and messages due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We hope to have the opportunity to host you again!

The condo is large and has lots of room, the pools are nice and the beach is not crowded. That is where my compliments stop. This condo was not clean and we had to call to have it cleaned upon finding nail clipping and food under furniture. We could not walk around barefoot without have black foot beds after. It is in need of some basic updates to the furniture and clearly the floors.
Manager response:
We are very sorry that the home was not as clean as it should have been. Cleanliness is one of our top priorities at Vacasa, so this should not have been the case. We are following up with our local staff to make sure this does not happen in the future, we appreciate your feedback!
Millette G. Mar 2020
This was the absolute best family spot we’ve ever booked. We will be back soon!
David L. Mar 2020
The view of the beach and the Gulf from the deck of the condo was incredible. We enjoyed the easy access to the beach for taking walks. We felt the bed had seen better days and needs to be replaced as it was not very comfortable.
Manager response:
Thank you for your feedback, David. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay. We will be sure to bring your comments about the bed to the attention of the local staff. We hope to host you again soon!
PATRICIA T. Mar 2020
Great layout. Loved the furniture on the balcony. Comfortable chairs and the table was a great addition. Everything was clean. And pictures on the website are accurate. Weather was iffy but at least we didn't have to shovel.
Traci S. Oct 2019
We were very happy with our stay. There was more than enough space for our family and the kitchen was stocked with everything we needed to prepare our meals for the week. The condo was clean and tidy. The only thing I noticed was that some of the cabinets and doors were a little sticky (just from regular use) when we opened them. The bathrooms were stocked with plenty of towels and the washer and dryer in the unit was a plus. We did have a little trouble with the lock on the outside door to the 2 units.

Over all, we were very pleased. The view from the balcony is wonderful. We loved that the beach wasn't crowded at all. We went in October and maybe saw a dozen people at most on the beach each day. A walk down to the far East end is definitely worth it.

Peaceful serenity Clean, spacious and comfortable
LISA G. Sep 2019
The condo was very nice, beautiful view and had all you needed. Both pool areas were supper clean and everyone was very friendly.
When we got there the 2nd bathroom toilet did not flush so I called to have it fixed they came out and said it was more then he could do he would come back the next day. We never heard from them and only had 1 bathroom working for our stay.
The other thing not mentioned is that this condo is A shares a front door entrance with B. People in B for our stay were very loud into the late night. Their voices could be heard all through out our condo. I put a towel under our front door which did help a little but not completely.
Other issue was the door lock was extremely had to turn to lock and unlock.
Manager response:
Hi, Lisa! Thank you for staying with us! The toilet and lock have been addressed by maintenance. We hope to see you another time!
ANN M. Sep 2019
