Plus, you can easily walk out your front yard to the water's edge to kayak and fish!

Great location for a laid back beach vacation. Quiet spot off the main road. 10 min walk to the amazing lighthouse bakery for lattes and breakfast. Saturday they have omelettes. Go early (they sell out of things) and be prepared to wait a little. It’s worth it and the line moves quick. They are closed on Sunday and Monday. 15 min walk to the little grocery/beach shop/package store.
Lovey bay view from living room and both bedrooms, each with its own porch. The middle porch is screened and has a ceiling fan. We had kayaks delivered, we’re able to put in from the house and took a day to kayak around the bay. 10 min drive to the west end beach. $10 for all day parking at all 3 island beaches. We did take advantage of the private beach parking pass, as well, which puts you steps away from the shoreline. There is a spot to hose off your sandy feet/self under the house. We used this daily.
The beds left a little to be desired as far as comfort goes but I always prefer my own bed. The hot tub was huge and wonderful. The home was clean. Lots of pots and pans but we did not cool. A little dated but very cozy. Plenty of space for our family of 4. We had a great time. Would definitely recommend and return in the future.

This was our second visit to this property. It has a beautiful vista overlooking the water. Perfect for a relaxing vacation. We intend to return again.

This laid back home was just right for my family of four + two dogs. It is cozy and cute and comfortable. We really enjoyed our stay!

The house is in a beautiful part of the island in a nice quiet neighborhood. Can walk to Beach Souvenir shop and a Mexican food take out place. There are bird sanctuaries through the neighborhood. The house is clean except the sliding glass door track which makes it difficult to open. We were there for the month of February when there were high winds and it was quite chilly. On those days it would have been nice to get comfortable and watch tv. However there was not one comfortable chair in the house. The pull out couch was also very uncomfortable to sit in. The internet was iffy at best. Streaming tv was a challenge due to all the buffering. The master bedroom bed was very comfortable. Master bedroom could use an update as well as kitchen. Also no screen or windows in guest bedroom so hard to get fresh air. The only option is to open the French doors to deck to get fresh air. Should also have directions on setting air temp. The view in the back facing the bay is beautiful and hot tub was nice.
Manager response:
Thanks for sharing your feedback with us, Joann. We are sorry to hear you found the seating in the home to be uncomfortable. We have passed your comments and suggestions along to our local manager to review and work with the homeowner to make any necessary changes, additions, or upgrades. We hope to host you again soon!

An older home but very nice place with a view of the bay. We had trees on the property, a lot of the homes are right on the beach in a cluster of other homes with really no privacy or shade. Plenty of outdoor room.... lots of deck, parking and places to play.
Indoors was very nice with a view of the bay from any room on that side. The kitchen was stocked with probably any appliance that would be needed for a vacay. The first morning we awoke to find that the coffee maker did not work, called vacasa immediately and another coffee pot was delivered within 2 hours. :) Local communication as well as a toll free # made this emergency solved pronto. :)
There is no real grocery store on the island that we saw, only a liquor store and a couple of convenience stores. Lots of restaurants though.
If we come back to Dauphin Island we would definitely rent this house again! :)

Nice rental off the main Eastern beachy strip. Place is clean, soaps, towels and bedding provided. You'll want to bring any food you might need except sugar. There were 2 five # bags in one of the cupboards. No coffee, salt, pepper, oils, etc. There is a drip coffee maker and filters. There are plenty of sharp knives, cups, plates, spatulas, cutting boards. No measuring cups, but there are measuring spoons. Sink has an instant hot water tap.

It was in the 30s°F when I visited and the heat worked. There are extra blankets, too. Master bed has a firm memory foam topper that I found very uncomfortable. They've replaced the white couch in the pics and I thought it was fine for napping and lounging.

House is not 100% private and could use some curtains in the bedrooms. However, it's not like anyone can see from the road since the place is elevated.

I really liked the location. It's an easy 1ish mile walk to the Audubon Sanctuary, or keep walking another mile for the aquarium or beach.

Swimspa was amazing. There's a little algae growth at the water line but otherwise seemed and smelled clean.

I would consider this place again if I were to return to Dauphin Island.

It was perfect for a pre-thanksgiving get away. No issues, we will rent again.

The house was very clean, well furnished and in a cozy location. The outdoor equipment that was provided (bikes, kayak, chairs, grills, cornhole boards) was a pleasant surprise and we enjoyed them! The place could use a few updates, but overall I would recommend! The only issue we had with the place was not having blinds or non-see-thru curtains in either bedroom.

We enjoyed our selves very much . we wished we had rented the house for the whole week. Everything was nice and clean . the view from the back deck was wonderful day or night. Your house was just what we needed for the first few day of married life . thank you. P. S. The couch is not very comfortable for a newly married couple to cuddle on . thanks again we was very impressed.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Gary, we are so happy to hear your party had an excellent time! We apologize if the couch wasn't suited for your party. We will be sure to pass your feedback along to our property manager to review and address as needed. We look forward to welcoming you back soon!

We took just a couple of days to completely decompress on the island. We did nothing and this house fit the bill for what we needed.
