Property type cottage

Overview

About the property

THE SURF SHACK IS A (1)BEDROOM (1) BATH BEACH COTTAGE THAT WILL SLEEP 2 GUESTS WITH A QUEEN SIZE BED. THE COTTAGE IS DECORATED WITH AN ECLECTIC RETRO SYLE AND THE COTTAGE WALLS ARE HUNG WITH ORIGINAL ARTWORK BY A LOCAL ARTIST. SURF SHACK HAS A LARGE , OPEN BACK DECK SURROUNDED BY TREES WITH CHAIRS FOR RELAXING AFTER A DAY AT THE BEACH. THE COTTAGE IS NON SMOKING AND NOT PET FRIENDLY. THERE ARE PLENTY OF RESTAURANTS WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE, DORITY'S BAR AND GRILL ARE RIGHT NEXT DOOR AND PROVIDE GREAT FOOD AND LIVE MUSIC. FOR EARLY RISERS COFFEE AND BREAKFAST IS ABOUT A 2 MIN WALK TO A LOCAL LANDMARK, THE LIGHTHOUSE BAKERY. RESTAURANTS WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE TO THE SURF SHACK ARE DORITY'S, MIGUEL'S BEACH'N BAJA, JT'S SUNSET GRILL(PELICAN PUB UPSTAIRS FROM JT'S), SKINNER'S SEAFOOD MARKET (TO GO SEAFOOD GROCERY, WILL STEAM FOR YOU AS WELL), CHEVRON GAS STATION SERVES A GREAT BREAKFAST AND HOME COOKED DAILY SPECIALS TO GO, AND SUBWAY. IF YOU PREFER TO COOK WE SUGGEST YOU BRING GROCERIES, THE CLOSEST WALMART IS IN TILLMAN'S CORNER. THE LOCAL GROCERY THE SHIP N SHORE IS RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER FROM THE SURF SHACK IF YOU FORGET ANYTHING, THEY ARE JUST LIMITED IN SELECTION AND HIGHER IN PRICE THAN YOUR NORMAL GROCERY. THERE IS SHOPPING WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE TO BUY GIFTS , WE WOULD RECOMMEND GOING ON THE DUKE FOR A SUNSET CRUISE (BRING YOUR OWN FOOD AND BEVERAGES). THERE IS MUCH MORE TO ENJOY ON THE ISLAND, TOO MANY GREAT RESTAURANTS TO MENTION ALL! SEE YOU SOON!

Old but neat place. Quirky but intetesting.

  • 4 of 5

Got there after big rains. Yard was flooded. Parked in drier area to unload next to private property sign from neighbor. Weather was cold, no heat in living room, bathroom. Three steps between living room and rest of house so maybe "not handicap accessible"should be noted. Could not figure out coffee maker so instructions would be nice. Bathroom is tea tiny. A wall hook would have been great for towel or bathrobe etc. Kitchen has all

essentials so that was nice. Maybe i'm a pillow snob but i thought theirs awful though bed was comfortable. Good location. Washer/Dryer a plus!

Exactly as it is described - comfy and rustic. It was perfect for us for the weekend.

The property manager is extremely

Accommodating. We needed an iron and hair dryer and she made sure we had them. The coffee left for us was excellent and an example of the little touches that we appreciate. The bathroom is extremely small - that’s the only down side.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to stay on Dauphin Island. You're close to the beach, and if you don't mind a small walk, you'll be at the beach in no time. For the price, it's a nice, quaint getaway. Kitchen was clean, and towels were plentiful. Thank you for your hospitality.

Cute but

  • 3 of 5

Not a great neighborhood, bed left much to be desired, needs to be replaced. My husband is short but his feet hung over, the indentations meant it was used a lot. We did not stay the second drove home

We loved being in the middle of the island and loved that there was not much traffic!!! The music next door was loud but ended by 10pm
