Dauphin Island house description

This charming, Non-Smoking, beach house is located on Ryan Court. It has a large oversized deck facing the Gulf with plenty of seating. Downstairs you will find a charcoal grill, picnic table, swing and a double hammock. Stepping stones lead you over the sand dunes and out to the beach! Inside you will find a bright, sunny decor with a large open living/dining room/kitchen area that includes a large bar with six stools. The entire front of the house is windowed and has double windowed french doors offering you a fantastic view of the Gulf.

Dauphin Island is known for it's fishing! There are plenty of charter boats available for full and half day excursions. There are also plenty of bike and walking trails, a wonderful bird sanctuary and historic Fort Gaines. Lets not forget the golf course with a view of the Gulf!

There is plenty to do on Dauphin Island but you are also close to many other attractions! Take the ferry to Fort Morgan and explore both the Fort and beautiful Gulf Shores. Visit Mobile and see the USS Battleship Alabama, Bellingrath Gardens, and the historic antebellum houses. You are also close to the Gulfport/Biloxi casinos and New Orleans, Louisiana is only two hours away!

                                After planning a beach camping trip with 12 friends to perdido key for the weekend, the forecast took a plunge and was calling for thunderstorms all weekend. I quickly began looking on VRBO for an alternative option for our getaway. Cid was incredibly accommodating and easy to work with. With only a 2 day notice, we were able to smoothly rent the house and were excited that our weekend wasn't ruined. We had such a wonderful time regardless of the rain, lounging on the deck, cooking, sitting on the beach, and playing board games. The house was fully equipped with anything we might have needed. I definitely recommend this beautiful home and will be coming back to rent another time!

                                Manager response: So glad y'all had fun in spite of the rain! We hope you come back soon! Thanks so much for the kind words!

                                I don't know if Cidnee is the owner or manager, but she is THE most accommodating rental agent ever! The house was perfect for four friends on a girls get-a way. The kitchen is equipped with everything. There were beach toys and chairs available to use. The beds were comfortable and the deck had plenty of lounge chairs to sit and watch the dolphins swim by! The property is not directly front and center on the beach but it is a very short walk to get to it( and you can see the water from the deck.) There is a book in the house with a map, brochures and general info ( restaurants etc) about the island. I would recommend this house !!

                                This is our second year vacationing here. We love the island and the house is perfect for us. Cidnee is wonderful to work with and very easy to contact. Everything you need to cook is supplied. The house is clean and comfortable. Awesome views of the beach from the deck and very easy access to walk to the beach. Recommend eating at the Islander and Sunset Grill. The Sea Lab was very interesting and we enjoyed walk through the Bird Sanctuary. This has become our vacation home for sure. Already planning for next year.

                                We booked this house with only seeing the pictures on the web site. We were not disappointed! We spent 3 months in the house and everything was provided! There were lots of dishes, silverware, pots/pans, crock pots, blenders, etc. The owner even provided trash bags! There was an extra apartment refrigerator that we used for over flow from the regular refrigerator. The house was very comfortable and fit our life style to a T! The view was great from the deck! If we had problems (like hot water heater or TV), Ci was right on it and got it fixed. We really appreciated the use of the house for the months of October, November, and December. We would recommend this house to everyone for a short stay or a long stay! Ci is one the nicest people you could find to rent from! She really cares for the people that stay in their beach house! We would have booked for 2013, but we think we will be moving to the Island before next fall!

                                Our story starts out rough, after planning our trip and setting everything into motion, mother nature decided to strike in the form of hurricane Isaac the week before we were scheduled to arrive. We were devisated, however, cid worked to make sure the house was ready, and in perfect working order for us when we arrived!! She also offered to refund, or reschedule if we didn't want to stay b/c of the storm. The house was absolutely perfect, the breeze coming in of the water, and the sky bright with stars so close you could touch em, and the fishing was fantastic!! Thanks to cid and her team it was the perfect week away from the crazy world. We have decided to make this our yearly getaway!!

                                Our family of 7 (4 adult and 3 kids, ages 11, 9 and 4) just returned from our trip to the Island. The house was perfect for us. We all spent a huge amount of time playing on the white, sandy beach. We came during our spring break (last week in March). The water was chilly but we soon got used to it and it was perfect. We mostly had the beach to ourselves; it wasn't crowded at all. One of the highlights for our trip was chartering a fishing boat and fishing in the Bay. I highly recommend StevO with Mo Bay Charters (mobaycharters.com). He was very helpful and nice... the kids loved fishing with him! We caught a ton of fish. I also recommend the Dauphin Island BBQ. The opened early 2012 and we ate there the last night of our stay. If we had found it sooner, I would have eaten there every day. (A little east of the main road coming in to the island on Bienville.) The house was very cozy and well stocked. Had everything we needed during our stay. Just bring the bug spray! Thanks Cid!

                                I found this property to be as described. My reason for 4 stars instead of 5 has more to do with the attention to detail than with any flaws or deficiencies. I'm referring specifically to maintenance issues with the home. There were many, many burned out lightbulbs throughout the house; some rendering light fixtures completely inoperable (like the main light in the master bathroom for example). I looked in the closet for more bulbs but found only the larger globe bulbs, not regular lightbulbs. I found myself prioritizing which fixtures I wanted to work and robbing others to make them functional. The bathroom door in the master bath sticks and does not close properly. The water pressure in the showers leaves much to be desired. Honestly I don't know how my wife was able to rinse her hair completely. It's not that the showerheads are designed to be low flow, there's simply insufficient volume and pressure supplied. To identify and alleviate these issues I recommend all property owners maintain a method at their properties whereby tenants can annotate and comment on any concerns they have. That way, upon checkout the tenant has essentially done an inspection for the owner and all the owner needs to do is remedy the issue. I didn't bring these issues to the attention of the owner during my stay because quite frankly they were pretty insignificant and I didn't feel like spending my vacation time doing anything but relaxing. All in all the location can't be beat. You're a stone's through from the shore (literally) and on the calm days you can watch the dolphins porpoise past from the comfort of the porch. While the weather wasn't ideal during our stay I knew I was taking a gamble when I booked during this time of the year. Suffice it to say my family had a wonderful time on the Island and the kids are already asking when we can return. We'll probably come back next year, but plan on September when the air and water are hopefully warmer. I recommend this property without reservation.

                                Manager response: Wow! What perfect timing for your review! The house has been booked solid this year and I just happen to have the it blocked out for inventory and repairs this week. We always welcome feedback from our guests. Usually housekeeping tests the lights after each stay, I am so sorry that I was not notified of the light bulb inventory being depleted. As to your other concerns they will be addressed during my stay! We depend on you, our guests to keep us informed of any problems you may encounter during your stay! Our goal has always been to insure that you have a relaxing, stress free stay at our Beach House. We do hope to see you again! Thanks, Cid
