Custom 4 bedroom, 3 bath home. Gulf side, west end beach.
Dauphin Island Real Estate, Inc.
The house itself was really nice. Just steps from beach. I wish there had been more restaurant choices on the island.
We loved the house. It had everything we needed. The only draw back was the oil rigs. If we could move this house to a different beach we would rent it again. The people on the island were wonderful. Five stars to the house.
Lovely property - if you love ROACHES
The house, beach and island were superb. However, on the first night our family discovered a single roach in the upstairs master bedroom. Hoping it was a fluke, we eliminated it and ignored the anxiety until another two roaches were found in the kitchen the next night. The company did send an exterminator out the next day, however they didn’t seem to do anything to address the problem. For the remainder of the trip roaches were a common sight both inside the home and on the front deck. To make matters even more disgusting, we found roaches in our luggage after coming home from the vacation.
While this house remains a great property, I’m shocked at the infestation. Hoping that the real estate firm might sympathize with my experience, I shared my frustration with them again after coming home. It seems that once the check clears they have little interest in creating a satisfied customer. In short: find somewhere else to stay.
Karma is a great house and we always want our guests to have a positive experience. We are very sorry that you had issues during your stay. After your departure, I personally spent a long time in Karma organizing the linen closet and kitchen. I was determined to find the "infestation" however, I did not see any roaches. I have also asked other guests if they had issues and no one has complained. A lot of time was spent trying to decide how to handle this issue. Had we received any other complaints or notice from the pest control company that there was an "infestation" we would have reached out to you.
All of our rental units are sprayed monthly by a professional pest control company, inside and out. We always advise that you keep food put away and doors closed. Often times, when the pest control inspector arrives at a house with bug complaints, all of the doors are left wide open. During the hot summer months, insects may try to come inside the house to find water. This is common for all properties on Dauphin Island and anywhere in the south.
Pest Control was called when the original complaint was made and again upon your departure. They did not see any problems and we have had no complaints since your departure.
We take every precaution available to control insects. Insects are part of living in the south. With today’s environmental laws, insecticides are limited in their effectiveness.
Again, we are all very sorry that you had issues during your vacation.
Lots of space, great location, perfect set up
The cabin had more than enough space spread out in all the right way. Everything was comfortable. The location was exactly what a vacation should be. The only downside that I had was in the evening, the front deck was directly in the sun with no way of getting out of it. Overall it was a great experience and great place to spend a vacation.
Great location, beach & Home in great condition!
Awesome accommodations, smooth check-in, no complaints, whatsoever!
Upon arriving, we were a little disappointed because the house was further back from the beach than we had anticipated. My mother traveled with us and she doesn't walk without a walker so with the beach being further away she was only able to enjoy the water a couple of times. The house was very spacious so everyone had their own rooms, which was a blessing. We would have loved to enjoy the hammock located under the house, however, you would be attacked by mosquitoes as soon as you stepped off the steps. Bug spray wouldn't even help. Overall our stay was enjoyable, weather was great and spending time with family was priceless. Having four bathrooms was a plus. The kitchen was fully equipped with anything we needed. Dauphin Island is a great place to unwind and relax.
