Very unhappy and dissatisfied
This house needs a lot of work! Lets start with the kitchen, it said the kitchen was well equipped for 12 people since when is a 2 slice toaster good for 12! There was one 8 cup coffee pot! The cooking and serving utensils were very flimsy and not safe to use. several of the chairs in the dining area were broken and the cooking pots were dirty! Paint was peeling in the master bath and overall the whole place could use a fresh coat of paint (dirty walls). The bath tub in the hall bathroom would not DRAIN!!! and the floor outside of the tub felt like it was going to fall thru! The tub upstairs did not drain well either! It states that the grill should be clean when you leave well guess what? It was dirty!!! and the lid was broken on the grill!!! Trash was not taken out from the previous guests. The areas right inside the porch doors were soft and we had to be very careful when walking in or out!!! One of the guests had their cell phone and a radio sitting on a shelf by the fireplace and t.v., well guess what it rained and the roof leaked and ruined his radio and luckily the phone had a water proof case on it or it would have been ruined also!!! For the price we paid for this home I was certainly expecting better. Would NOT recommend this house!!!
Wonderful vacation rental experience.
We have been to Dauphin Island three different years and to Gulf Shores once on an annual family vacation. Son of a Sailor is my favorite rental of the four.
The location is the greatest! With the neighborhood swimming pool next door, and the tennis court in front of it; we could not have asked for a more convenient location. We were able to see the beach and water from the back bedrooms, the main living area and the expansive back porch.
girls weekend trip.
Great location for a girls weekend trip all celebrating turning 65 this year. I would stay here again. Bought steamed shrimp from Skinners and they were delish.
Perfect family getaway
This is our second stay at this home and hope to come back again next year. The bedrooms are large and comfortable, there are plenty of fresh towels and the kitchen is well appointed to prepare meals for a dozen people. The view from the back porch is spectacular, this was a favorite spot for the four adults.
Large home next to the pool
Great place, nice large home and plenty of parking.
Wonderful Location, needs some TLC.
I am giving Son of a Sailor 4 stars mainly because of the location. It is directly on the gulf, next to the swimming pool and tennis courts, all which the kids loved.
However, the house needs some TLC. The master bath's paint is peeling off the walls. There was only half rolls of toilet paper, no garbage bags, very little dish soap and no washing machine detergent. You are required to wash the towels and wash the dishes, but provided nothing to wash them with. The BBQ grill was gross. If the showers are in use there is no water pressure in any other rooms.
This is an amazing house in an amazing location, it just needs some work.
Glad you enjoyed your two days on the island. As far as the house and items supplied , the master bath has a faux finish on the walls and are not peeling. As stated in the contract signed, paper products, soap, garbage bags, are not furnished, there were two bags of laundry detergent above the washing machine and were still there when the house was checked after you left. The water pressure was fine and the showers were working fine. The grill had dust on top of it but clean inside.
I do appreciate your comments.
