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? 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 during a fish fry or hamburger cookout with the kids. 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?

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.
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.
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!!
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.
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Conch Shell for the month of February 2016. Conch Shell is a clean and wonderfully decorated beach house with all the amenities and supplies one needs. We went on many long beach walks and enjoyed lots of great seafood dinners. The weather was great and the people are friendly. We plan on a return visit!
I love this place! ..... Unsophisticated in an awe inspiring setting that lets you relax and enjoy yourself without a care in the world. Plenty of privacy without feeling isolated, this was the perfect beach vacation for me! I can't wait to return.
We found everything just as advertised and really didn't need to bring a thing except sunscreen and a beach umbrella. The cozy house was well equipped with everything you need to prepare a meal, watch the game or a movie, but the best part for me was being just a few steps from the beach.
Fresh seafood just minutes away or on your way in at Skinner's was a big plus. Our group included several kitchen divas so we enjoyed preparing our own meals but there are several restaurants and a wonderful bakery nearby. The owner provided information about the island and all the ' must see and do' things. If you like to take pictures, DO NOT forget to bring your good camera. Photo Opps are endless! From sunrise to sunset not a moment to be wasted.
