                            My husband and I and five friends rented Surfside and we had an absolutely wonderful vacation. The house has a great location with beautiful views and a clean, wide stretch of beach that's uncrowded. The common areas of the house have lots of comfortable seating and the table is nice and big, for communal meals and playing board games. Only a couple of small downsides - the gas grill doesn't work very well, though it is functional, and the blender doesn't work at all. Still, worth a five star rating because the rest of the house is just great. Also, it was spotless when we came in, and the rental company was friendly and responsive. We couldn't have asked for a better stay, really. Highly recommended.

                            Recommended for: Families with young children, girls getaway.

                            My family had a thoroughly enjoyable vacation on Dauphin Island mainly because Surfside was such a wonderful home away from home. There were 10 of us and we were all very comfortable....the house is spacious with a great kitchen and dinning area that allowed us all to eat together and even have company join us. The views were spectacular from the wall of windows across the front and back of the house. The home provided everything we needed (don't forget to pack your own paper products and laundry soap, etc.) for preparing food and keeping us entertained. The best part was the back of the house that faced the ocean had a porch overhang which meant we could avoid the hassle of setting up a tent. We had family in another house so we totaled 16 and Surfside became our gathering spot because of this wonderful shady spot on the beach where grownups could sit and talk and kids had the beach/ocean right there as well. (Can easily keep an eye on the kids while sitting in the shade) I would highly recommend this home to any family!

                            My family and I spent a week in this "perfect, beach" vacation rental. The house was right on the beach so the kids could play in the water as I sipped my drink on the wrap around deck or in the shade below the deck. The floor plan was wide open! We could see down the beach in both directions from the living room or gather together in the large kitchen. The vacation was perfect and we cannot wait to be back at Surfside again.

                            My family stayed here during late July 2012 and are looking forward to our return visit in the summer of 2013! This home is perfect for a beach vacation - spacious, elegant but still beachy and comfortable with the big denim sofas and high ceilings. The light is terrific and the views from the beach to the bay are breathtaking. Dauphin Island has its limitations in "activities and dining out options" but for people who just want to cook at home and play on the beach with the kids - it's ideal. Thank you so much for making this home available for rent.

                            Description and photos were accurate and descriptive. This is a very nice house, very close to the surf. We originally had reservations for another property but Hurricane Isaac delayed our trip by 30 days. That original property was still VERY heavily involved with moving sand and we were upgraded to Surfside by the agent upon our arrival. Our "comment card" would reflect that the beach was NOT ready for visitors! The sand was so deep from heavy equipment, without any contour, that it was impossible to take walks on the beach and at the surf the sand sloped too markedly for walking! Wa Frequent beach walks were part of our plans. The toilet in the MB was loose at the floor. Trash was to be collected and at the curb for Tues and Sat pickup; there was ONE trash can liner provided for the week. We were to wash a load of towels upon departure but no laundry detergent was provided. We were surprised to find the golf course on the Island had been closed (again apparently) in July or August - another notable disappointment. Since the bakery was closed for the week the ONE good place to eat on the Island (Islanders) was not open until Thu-Sun. That meal on Friday was a TREAT. BTW, one should avoid Barnacle Bill's. A first timer on the Island should be prepared to travel back towards Mobile or ferry to Ft. Morgan/Gulf Shores for dining. One week on the Island was probably three days too long. This property itself is very nice and would be great for a gathering of 6-8; there was just the two of us retirees this trip.

                            Manager response: So glad you love our house! We love it too and wish we could use it more ourselves. We were sorry to hear that the beaches weren’t what you expected but Mother Nature really threw us a curve ball with Hurricane Isaac. I hate that FEMA and the Town of Dauphin Island were working in our area during your visit, but at the same time, we’re really glad they were able to restore the beach to its previous pristine condition so quickly. After speaking with Island Resort Management, the company that handles our house, they reminded me that they furnish a starter supply of paper products and trash can liners but the guests need to bring or buy more if needed. Now that you’ve pointed that out, I’ll make sure to add that to the description of our house so everyone knows what to expect. I hope you’ll return to Dauphin Island and our Surfside house in the future. We’d love to have you!
