Really enjoyed the trip; frat place to stay lots of room

  • 4 of 5

The house was great; only concern was number of steps; several in our group had bad knees so stairs were a challenge; we really enjoyed the house and the trees; good location. Beach is short distance away.

Very uncomfortable....

  • 1 of 5

House was nice but has camera watching you. I had teenage girls there and did not notice camera on wall untill 2nd day so they got video of young girls in panties and bra. Im sure there were cameras elsewhere we just didnt find them. Terrible feeling knowing someone is watching you.

Owner's Response: I have asked repeatedly for you to remove this review yet you have not. The electronic sensor is not a camera - it is a sensor for the remote control systems in the house. There is paperwork in the home stating this as I pointed out to you over the phone. This is a very serious accusation which we do not take lightly. Please reconsider removing this review. Any future renters, feel free to give us a call and we'll be glad to discuss this incredibly beautiful house and make your vacation exceptional on Dauphin Island. Thanks, ACP Real Estate, Inc. - Management.

Absolutely lovely

  • 4 of 5

We so enjoyed our stay at the Bough house. It was completely stocked with everything we needed-especially the kitchen! Comfortable, clean and roomy. We had a large group of extended family with is, who stayed at a couple of other houses, but there was plenty of space for us to do meals and get together there. Loved the porches and deck space. So peaceful . My husband and I also admired the lovely pottery- we both have our own wheels at home. The only thing I would change would be to have more sleeping space, so more of us could stay under the same roof.

Overall great stay, just don't count on internet!

  • 4 of 5

The house was beautiful. Plenty of space for our large family and well stocked with everything we needed. Internet NEVER worked the entire time. Property managers said they didn't have rights to call the internet company and they couldn't reach the property owners to get permission. I planned to work a few hours each morning while I was there (until the kids woke up) but was unable to do so. House was centrally located, clean, and in a quiet neighborhood. Only a small viewing area of the beach and beach is not accessible by a direct walk.

Fun Place

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in the house with 4 couples over a 3-day weekend. We loved the house. Unique, but very functional furnishings. Loved the downstairs mini-fridge. The kitchen had just about any appliance, serving ware, or utensil you could think of. Very roomy with tons of windows and natural light. Had a great time hanging out on the balcony and downstairs deck. We all brought our bikes and biked to the public beach on the nice paved bike bath. It's located in a neighborhood with decent sized lots, so you don't really have many neighbors. There isn't really a view, but it was nice feeling secluded and it was really quiet. It was convenient having a washer/dryer and little handheld vacuums.
