Recent Dauphin Island vacation rental reviews

House was great for our family and dogs! There was plenty of room to spread out and direct beach access! The gated back deck was perfect for our dogs to soak up the sun and watch the waves all day.

We loved the access to beaches on the bay (as part of the property) and on the Gulf (across the street). The floorpan works well, with an open living area and 4 bedrooms (two on each side of the living area). The kitchen was functional and well equipped.

This is the first time staying on Dauphin Island. It was wonderful having a home right at the waters edge. There was plenty of room for us to visit with family and space for the kids. The house was great and we would definitely stay again. One thing to note (not good or bad just to be prepared for) if you are used to homes with some extras. This home will have the basic rental starter kit (toilet paper, paper towels, a small bottle of dish soap, a few dishwasher and washing machine pods) if you are used to other homes that have some misc basics like salt and pepper (and on occasion other basic condiments) you will need to make an extra trip to town if you do not have these items. We preorder groceries when we fly down and pick them up on our way to our rental so if that is your process too it is just helpful to know you will need any and all food items. We were pretty well covered but didn’t think to get salt and pepper so we had our family grab some on there way out. :)
