This was a great stay for me and my family. Our 3 year old son had a blast fishing and having the awesome upstairs to himself! The pier offered excellent fishing, the patio was superb for family BBQ, and house was kid friendly. I would recommend this stay to anyone who wants to see what dauphin island has to offer.

Clean, comfortable and cozy. Great fishing from the dock. Beach was a little farther than walking distance for us but could be fine for others. Beach parking lots on some streets made it easy. Another thing was the owners not designing your vacation we could not manage the saturday to Saturday as most demand during the summer. They were also easy to work with. We had so much fun here! Definitely on my list to go back. Thank you for sharing this amazing place!

Second time to stay here was disappointing. House needs some work done on it, especially the deck around the house. Also, be sure you get rid of all garbage when you leave, or it will cost you $50 of your deposit. What I want to know is, where do you get rid of garbage the day you leave if the garbage ran at 5:00 that morning before you even got up?

From the moment we walked into the door we were in love! Breathtaking views, beautifully furnished and decorated. I just wanted to move in on the spot! :) It looked just like the pictures, very clean and well taken care of. The kids had a BLAST fishing off the dock and feeding the Pelicans and Herons. Could not have asked for a better view of the gorgeous sunsets! We even saw a couple of Dolphins! Loni was very accommodating and SO sweet! We will DEFINITELY be returning! Thanks so much guys!!

Great Vacation Home
Great Vacation Home
My family and I had a great vacation and experience renting Captains Quarters. The house was very clean and comfortable. I liked the house more in person than from the pictures on the website. There is plenty of room and all the bedroom are perfect for a beach vacation The owner was super nice and accommodating. My favorite thing about the house is the location. We left the door open almost the entire time because there was always a great breeze coming from the sound. The view is amazing and the sunsets were beautiful. It right across from the beach so you can have the bay and the beach. While staying here we fished, crabbed and swam from the pier. We also swam, fished and went for long walks on the beach. We ate the yummiest pastries from the bakery and chartered a fishing trip with Steve O at Mobay charters. We have never done that and can't wait to do it again. My kids parasailed and hung out at the marina a little bit. We rode our bikes and really just enjoyed being together. I always think of the island as not having much to do but there is tons of fun to be had.

This property was more than we expected. It was wonderful! Just what my family needed. My 8 year old grandson caught 20 fish off the pier and he couldn't have been happier. My husband would get up before 5 am every morning and he would be out on the pier fishing and that was the last thing he would do before going to bed. You can fish all day we would catch flounder and trout at 1:00 in the afternoon! The kitchen had everything needed to cook a full meal - we had 4 adults and 3 children and everyone had their own space. It was a perfect place and we look forward to coming back. Thank you for a wonderful time.

What a great time we had at Captains Quarters. We have stayed in a lot of beach houses and this is our favorite. Much better than beach front. We fished most of the time and caught a lot of fish, mostly white trout. Our 6 year old grandson was up early every morning ready to spend the day on the pier. And the house, I can't say enough about how nice it is, just loved it all. We have lots of beautiful pictures to look at until we can make a return trip.

My family spent the week recently in this lovely house. It was fully furnished with everything you need. My grandchildren couldn't get enough of the dock and fishing they practically lived there the entire week. I would recommend this house for anyone wanting to get away from the fast life. The evening sunsets were to die for, couldn't get enough of them. Although the beach was close by we spent most of the days fishing off the dock. We took the children to the nearby Sea Lab and they truely enjoyed that. This was our first vacation at Daulphin Island and can't wait to go back. I certainly can't think of anything negative to say. Loni was very sweet and let us know if there was anything we needed to call her day or night. We loved it.

Captains Quarters = Great Place for Families
Captains Quarters = Great Place for Families
Our family of 6 rented Captains Quarters from July 20-26th, 2011. The house was very clean and comfortable. We felt very much at home there. The pictures are very accurate and we were very happy with our dealings with the owners. Our kids especially enjoyed the deck and the water that was just out back of the home. We spent every evening there watching the beautiful sunsets and just enjoying our time together. We recommend this property and plan to go back in the future.

Why the Owner Chose Dauphin Island:
'Captains Quarters' was purchased as my primary residence 12 years ago and was never rented out until recently. I settled on Dauphin Island because it is the most 'laid back', relaxing place I have ever found. The fishing is fantastic, the beaches are beautiful, and the Sunsets are phenomenal!
The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
Sunsets, sunsets, sunsets!!! Fishing and crabbing off the 36' pier. Swimming or shelling a 10 minute walk on the beaches of the Gulf of Mexico. Scooter or jet ski rentals minutes away. Bike trails, best birding in the Southeast, Audubon Park, historic Fort Gains, Dauphin Island Sea Lab and Estuarium. The best offshore Red Snapper and sports fishing in the Gulf and inshore speckled trout, white trout, flounder, crabbing and red fishing on the private pier. Mobile Bay Ferry available for day trips to Fort Morgan or Gulf Shores. The casinos of Biloxi are 1 hour away and New Orleans a short 2.5 hours away.
