Dauphin Island, Alabama Rental House on Beachside

Wi Fi Provided for all of our guest.

Need an escape from your hectic lifestyle? Stay at our 'Cute-as-a-button' rental house (nicknamed 'Conch Shell') on Dauphin Island, Alabama, where your only worries will be deciding what kind of sunscreen to use? (678 -4880553) Come enjoy the beach, biking, walking, and birdwatching like a true local. Bird watching can be enjoyed on our wrap-around deck or while taking a stroll through Dauphin Islands', AL internationally recognized Bird Sanctuary.

A large family room provides you plenty of room for vacationing and entertaining. The cheery and colorful kitchen provides a wealth of space to set out a feast of hour'devors for the quick, constant desire for snacks, while enjoying the sun, sand, and surf. Imagine how relaxing it would be to enjoy a freshly brewed iced tea on the deck, while watching the dolphins swim across the water at dusk and hearing the children frolicking in the sand below. Delight in the instant access to the pearly white sands of Dauphin Island beach, by simply stepping out of the house and into our spacious front yard.

When all that relaxing creates a need for more relaxing, be entertained with a movie night that everyone can enjoy. Our three beautifully decorated bedrooms each boast a private television which includes a dvd/vcr combo, and still allow you to comfortably occupy 9 family members or friends. During the hot afternoon, let you children play underneath our beach house (cottage) in the shade. Feel free to bring all your fishing gear and make use of the public fishing piers located on the island.

A short drive or jog will take you anywhere you need to go. Our rental house 'Conch Shell' is found a half mile from the end of the island, where a least a mile of untouched beach is situated. Located down the road, the Estuarium lets you explore the deep waters of Mobile Bay and the reefs of the Gulf of Mexico, while educating even the most knowledgable on marine life.

A short drive leads to the Historic Fort Gaines, the Shrimp Docks, the Bay Ferry, and The Isle Dauphine Public 18 Hole Golf Course. Come let our 'Conch Shell' whisper our experiences of Dauphin Island, AL while allowing you to swim into a world of relaxation and fun. Do you hear the 'Conch Shell' mumuring your name?

Very close to beach

  • 3 of 5

House was ok, location was good. It is on the beach side of the road and sits 3rd back from the water. Not that this means it is a long walk by any means.

It did seem to have a good supply of hot water. I don't remember anyone complaining about not having a hot shower and we used every bed. The steps leading to the house have a warm water shower on the landing which was handy. Only improvement I could call for on that would be an enclosure of some sort for private showering. I have stayed at other beach houses and could take a shower and rinse the sand out of my suit in privacy and just keep a towel large enough to wrap around. It helps keep sand out of the drains, but they seemed to work fine.

Some things that were annoying-electric flashed on and off whenever starting the washer/dryer, turning on hairdryer. I would like to see larger beds. Outlets didn't work in the bathrooms until my dad found the breaker box and flipped the breaker back on.

Only other complaint was that I had to call the owner to get the keycode instead of it being automatically sent to us on the day of arrival like other houses.

Awaiting return of deposit.

Review of island-be sure you really want beach only vacation. There are not a lot of other activities to do within easy distance. Fort Gaines was very interesting, but the island is very small, so other tourist type things are limited.

Restful family retreat in early April!

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 4 had a relaxing time at Conch Shell beach house. Beautiful views from deck - we watched dolphins play three mornings in a row and the sunrises were amazing. The house is charming with a kitchen with all the things one needs to make family meals. Furniture and beds were comfortable and washer/dryer on site made life easy for packing. Though the house is 3 back from water, it was just steps to a white sand beach and from the waterside bedroom and deck you have clear view of water and sky. We rented an umbrella and lounge chairs from local vendor and he delivered! We arrived to a major storm, so weather could have been better, but not sure if that's standard for early April. Owner was easily accessible by phone. All in all a great family retreat for this family that needed to slow down and connect.

Great family retreat on the beach

  • 4 of 5

The amenities and decor are a bit dated, but the location (right on the beach) more that makes up for that -- after all, you do not plan to spend a whole lot of time inside :-). Having three full baths was a great feature when you are on the beach. We only had on minor issue: We have a king-size bed at home, and we found the full-size bed in the master bedroom a bit crowded for comfort. Overall a great location and would highly recommend for a cozy family stay.

Conch Shell Beach House - nice location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here during the first couple of weeks of July 2016, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location is great - quiet, no crowds, short walk to the water (house actually sits 3 back from the water's edge - but still a VERY short walk, and the views from the left deck is unobstructed). The house comes with everything you need for your stay - is clean and nicely decorated. The only downside we had was the inability to clean off the sand from our day on the beach - there are no working outside faucets, except 1, which is scalding hot water (hooked to hot water line of house). All other water outlets were corroded and completely nonworking. As a result, we spent a lot of time sweeping the house after our time on the sand. Would recommend if you're looking for a quiet, relaxing vacation away from the crowds. Just bring your beach chairs, beach towels and toys and you're all set.

Great location! Love this place

  • 4 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our week long stay at the Conch Shell. The views from the house can't be beat!! The kitchen is well stocked with everything you would need. The house is roomy and we didn't feel cramped at all. I sure miss sitting on the balcony and watching the sunrise, sunset and the waves from the Gulf!! Tammy, the owner, was easy to work with and we appreciate her sharing her home!! We will definitely return!!

Conch shell Beach house

  • 4 of 5

Our family of five enjoyed our recent vacation on Daulphin Island. If you are looking for a place to have some downtime, this is the place. There was plenty of room. We stayed on the beach all day and in the evening we were able to cook in the kitchen, watch tv on one of the four tvs or make good use of the wifi. The owner was easy to get in touch with. We would definitely stay here again.
