Dauphin Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

This three bedroom home is located across the street from the beautiful beaches of Dauphin Island. The home has awesome views of the Gulf of Mexico and the Mississippi Sound from several rooms and the large front deck. It also has easy beach access with a short walk.

The interior of the home has been recently redone with new paint and new floors. The kitchen is ideal for families whereas the dining table expands out and seats eight. There is plenty of yard space for outdoor activities such as soccer or volleyball.

The master bedroom has a king bed with private bath with views of the Gulf of Mexico. The second bedroom has a queen bed and views of the Gulf of Mexico and the third bedroom has two sets of bunk beds. All mattress sets are new!

This home is located in the residential, non-commercial west end of Dauphin Island. The beach and area streets are secluded and low density with minimal activity. Excellent for family walks and bike rides. You can also take an enjoyable ferry ride located at the East end of Dauphin Island to Fort Morgan for a day visit.

There are four Beach Chaise lounge chairs available on the deck

The home is no smoking

This review is primarily about the owners.

We had scheduled our stay months in advance. However, due to a change in work schedule we had to cancel the dates. Dwight (owner) didn't make a fuss over the cancellation. He communicated very well over email. I never was left wondering what was going on and he was very accommodating about getting our refundable balance.

If for anything else, when renting this property know you are dealing with professional, kind, understanding people.

Great house

  • 5 of 5

I have been going to DI for many years and have stayed in many different accommodations including hotel, condos, and several other houses. This was my second time to stay in this house and I highly recommend a stay here. It is spacious and roomy with a well stocked kitchen! You have a great view of the gulf from the deck and a very short walk to the beach. Turtles nesting on the beach was an awesome bonus during this trip!! Also, a very short walk to the Sound side where we were able to launch the canoe provided by the owners. Great fun !! The owners are very accessible, friendly and helpful!

Nice to have bedrooms for everyone plus great location.

  • 4 of 5

My main goal for our family vacation was to be able to sleep everyone in beds and not on couches. I was able to get up early to enjoy my coffee on the deck listening to the sounds of the ocean without bothering anyone. The owners were so helpful supplying us with everything from kitchen needs to linens, beach towels and large book of references about the island.

Looking forward to coming back again.

Amazing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We just got home from our annual Dauphin Island trip. This is the first time we have stayed in this house and it was amazing! The house is plenty big for 7 people. If you do stay with a bigger group, make sure to bring some extra bath towels (we managed, not that big of a deal). We enjoyed sitting out on the deck most of each day, when we weren't relaxing at the beach. We set up our sun tent and beach items one day and left it set up the rest of the week with no issues. You can see you things from the deck. If you are a runner, this location is perfect. I ran to West End Beach a few mornings and it's the most relaxing run. Lots to observe while your out for a longer run. The new East End Beach is very nice as well, just not as easy to get to. If you are looking for a vacation with nothing to do except to enjoy your family and the beaches around you, then this is definitely it! The bakery is amazing, remember to call ahead for the cinnamon rolls! The restaurants on the island are good, and the pizza is great from Island Rainbow.

Dwight was easy to work with and is very helpful. He even called the day after we arrived to check to see how it was going. We enjoyed our stay and have already booked for 2017. We love the island life and can't wait to go again next year!

We have stayed at this location several times and each time has been restful and enjoyable. Restful because it is a quiet and friendly beach and enjoyable because it has a number of places to explore, i.e. bird sanctuary, the Estuarium, fishing, golfing, Bellingrath Gardens, Alabama Battleship, Fairhope, AL, and the ferry ride across the bay from Ft. Gordon to Ft. Monroe.

There are also several nearby restaurants for seafood and other dishes as well places to purchase groceries and sundries.

The accommodations of the home are comfortable and the kitchen adequate for preparing of all meals. The owner is easy to work with and accessible if needed. It's a short walk from the house to the beach, and from the house you can daily watch dolphins chasing shrimp boats or view them from the ferry.

Don't forget viewing a sunset from the west end of the island. It has been noted as the best sunset viewing spot in Alabama.

Great location and House

  • 5 of 5

Extended stay Feb 27 to March 30, 2016. Home has everything you need. Kitchen well stocked with everything you need . Beds comfortable and linens and towels are high quality. Three flat screen TV's and 2 DVD players, so I could watch March Madness while my wife watch a video. Living room has leather chair, ottoman, and couch. Porch is massive (10 x 45), with 2 comfortable adirondack chairs. Walk to beach is less than 5 minutes. Beach was also empty in the morning with a few more people in the afternoon and weekends. Can't imagine them being that bad even in the summer, since parking is limited on the island. Take out shrimp dinner from Skinners is excellent and believe it or not the pizza from the Chevron Gas Station is some of the best I have had. Only thing I might add to the home would be a chase lounge on the deck. Owner provided info on Dauphin Island prior to our trip which was very helpful.
