                                                      We’ll equipped and comfortable cottage.

                                                      Randy A.

                                                      The relaxed atmosphere of Dauphin Island and location of the cottage made for an enjoyable stay. All of the conveniences of home were at hand. The cottage was clean. The owners were responsive in a timely manner. Reasonably priced as well.

                                                      We were extremely pleased with our stay!

                                                      Ashley W.

                                                      My family and I have stayed at several vacation homes. This was our first experience with VRBO and we were extremely pleased. Dennis and Kim's home was the cleanest house that we have stayed in so far and it was equipped with basic necessities. This house Is very pet friendly, our fur babies enjoyed laying on the deck soaking up the sun. It was a short walk to beach. The Island is very relaxing. Our family will definitely be returning in the new future. I would recommend this home to anyone.

                                                      Great Little Beach House, Everything You Need

                                                      Zackrey S.

                                                      First time to Dauphin island and It was awesome. The house is dated and a touch small but I fully expected that after reading the other reviews and honestly it beat expectation. The wrap around porch is awesome and the screened in porch is a perfect place to eat. Just a block from the beach across a slow two lane road is the beach. You'll find a cart, 4 camp chairs and a ton of sand toys for your use. The kitchen is really fully stock, we all the basics we needed to make the 10-15 meals we ate there. I suggest the dollar general about 15 miles north to stock and then ship n shore for any last minute needs. We can not wait to go back as soon as possible. Thank y'all.

                                                      Great beach house with everything you need!

                                                      Jason B.

                                                      My family and I stayed at this house for a week and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Everything is as described by the owners who are very responsive and thoughtful. We would definitely stay with our pup again.

                                                      Exactly as described!

                                                      Diane D.

                                                      This was a lovely cottage and we enjoyed staying here. Very clean.

                                                      The owners were wonderful to work with and very friendly. The people on the island were friendly and nice. Fantastic beach within walking distance. Food was excellent at the restaurants we visited. I would definitely recommend this rental to anyone who loves islands and beaches. We hope to return one day!
