Perfect house. So much seated for meals and hanging out. Love the patio area
We loved our stay at The Easy Way on Dauphin Island. It was a short walk to the beach. When not on the beach we spent most of our time on the porch visiting with our friends/family whole enjoying the beautiful view of the gulf.
The house had all the comforts of home. We grilled out many nights and enjoyed the swing & picnic tables. Laundry & dishwasher was necessary for our 3 week stay. We even had a crab visit us a few mornings for a walk, his home near bottom of the stairs.
Our family and friends fell in love with Dauphin Island and we'll definitely be back and will rent this house again!
This was our first trip Gulf Shores plantation and the area. We came with my extended family who rented a condo from Plantation west and who rented the other side of this house. Hands down this was the best property between the three rentals. The kitchen is newly updated, big pantry, fully stocked cooking supplies. The island is a added bonus for extra cooking space and seating. This house is great for a family with younger kids. The owners have generously made available a high chair, booster chair, pack n play, stool, games, etc. They also allowed us to use their sand wagon, access to their beach chairs, umbrellas, and toys. The decor and furniture is updated and very comfortable. The king pillows were fabulous as well. Light switches, cabinets, drawers were are labeled and made it so easy to find things…label makers are the best.
The pool is just steps away and was nice. At times it was extremely busy with bigger groups that played loud music, smoked, and over drinking. I don’t think that is the normal though and at one point we saw security down there. With our 4 younger kids we headed up to the house when they started getting rowdy. The beach is a 3-5 minute walk which is great because we could do the pool early in the morning then head to the beach.
There was definitely construction going on at the plantation from hurricane Sally and they closed the pool closest to us for 1.5 days due to that. I talked with a local owner and he thought the construction would move out of that area in about a month.
Overall, we had a fabulous stay. The house was amazing and I’d think the grounds would be better after they finish construction. Thank you Head Family for opening your home. We appreciate your generosity. Be great to work directly with the owner and not have to go through Vacasa. I emailed them about hurricane damage and what to expect- they never responded.
