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?

Great beach adventure

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful location with great views over the ocean. We enjoyed the walks with our dog on the beach. The house was well equipped, and we had plenty of room for a party of seven. Because of the cleanliness of the house we just rated 4 stars. But the houseowner was very cooperative and willing to adress the issues.

Great location. Nice house

We came during a storm, so wifi wasn't working, but who needs electronics when you are at the ocean?! Our kids loved it. The deck has a wonderful view.

The house has great views of the gulf and you even see the bay from the front. It really is just a few steps in the white sand to the georgeous beach. Loved our stay!

Conch Shell - Just what the Doctor Ordered

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we crossed over the bridge to Dauphin Island it felt magical. What a wonderful place and a wonderful house. The house was very nice and well appointed. The description for the house is right on point. We enjoyed being able to spread out in the 3 bedrooms and 3 baths. The best part was the open den and kitchen. That allowed us to to enjoy each others company while we cooked. Also enjoyed the views looking out at the Gulf of Mexico from the house and deck. We loved having a place to wash off before entering the house. The deck look like it had just been replaced. What a fun place to have a quiet family vacation. Other things that we enjoyed was sitting under the house and long walks on the beach. You have a great view of the ocean from under the house. So bring your hammocks. The owner was so easy to work with and very attentive. We will be back to enjoy the brilliant sunsets of Dauphin Island.

Great family vacation beach home

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five stayed at the Conch Shell from 7/8/17-7/15/17 and we had a great time. The house was only a few steps from the beach and we basically had a large area to set up our chairs, tent, beach games etc. because it was not crowded like many other places we have stayed in Alabama and Florida. The kitchen was well stocked and there were plenty of bath and kitchen towels too. This was our first time to vacation on Dauphin Island and we will definitely be coming back! Thanks Tammy for sharing your home!!

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.
