Recent Alabama Gulf Coast vacation rental reviews

My husband and I stayed with our dog for 3 nights. This was our first trip to Dauphin Island and we loved how laid back and quiet it was (disclaimer- we visited in the middle of the week in mid-September but I doubt it's very rowdy even during peak vacation season). The house was cute and just a quick walk from the beach. Had everything we needed including a gas grill (igniter wasn't working but got it fired up fine with a lighter- property manager came to check it out the next day), stocked kitchen (just salt and pepper though, no oil or Pam or other spices so bring that if you need it), and lots of beach toys/wagon which we didn't use but nice to have available. There's a small grocery store and some shops on the island but would recommend getting your groceries/supplies in Mobile beforehand. We live in Birmingham so this was an easy getaway for us and we would definitely visit again.

This property was very clean and well maintained. Our family of 8 stayed there and we were extremely satisfied. It was great we all had our own bathroom. The pool area was well maintained and clean as well.

A fishing getaway with private covered pier out the back door was just what we needed. The ambiance of the Mississippi Sound with the bird watching and occasional dolphins swimming by was just beautiful and very peaceful. The neighbors attended their oyster farming pots on either side of the private pier and was fun to watch their daily routine. We were glad to drive a couple of miles to the Pirates Bar & Grill where they served up fresh raw oysters they said were from the other side of the island, probably the neighbors’ catch. The house exterior is a little rough but what house near the ocean isn’t? The house interior was spotless, fresh and adorable. Beds were comfy too. We would gladly revisit this rental and found it hard to leave when it was time because it had become “home”.

Alabama Gulf Coast rentals on Dauphin Island

Dauphin Island is Alabama Gulf Coast life at its finest. The beautiful (and pet-friendly!) beaches are easily accessible from the mainland by highway, so Dauphin Island vacation rentals are a popular escape from nearby Mobile. The Estuarium, also known as the Dauphin Island Sea Lab, offers a glimpse into the Gulf’s diverse underwater life. If you have a boat or want to rent one, put it in at the marina and explore the Mobile Bay’s calm waters.
