About the property

Dauphin Island, Alabama

Let this spacious 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom Dauphin Island vacation rental cottage serve as your home base for exploring the Sunset Capital of Alabama! Nestled in a quiet beach community, this 1,200-square-foot abode comfortably sleeps 8 and is ideal for warm weather travelers and snowbirds alike, ensuring a relaxing trip with incredible views of the ocean. Create memorable days lounging on the warm white sand as your fellow travelers play in the calm Gulf of Mexico. At night, gaze up at the clear stars from your private porch. Your seaside retreat awaits!

THE PROPERTY

The moment you arrive, you'll simply fall in love with the unit's breathtaking setting, surrounded by picturesque beach scenery, reminding you how close you are to the warm sand and rolling surf. All the essential amenities you want in your ultimate home-away-from-home are here, including air conditioning, in-unit laundry machines, and a gourmet kitchen.

You'll enjoy easily communicating with everyone in the open-concept layout of the great room. Relax on the plush furnishings while watching your favorite shows on the TV or disconnect with a good novel.

Look forward to enjoying your early morning coffee outside on the cottage's lovely private deck, where you can take in the gulf views and relish in the tranquility of the area. After the sun goes down, convene with your loved ones on the deck to observe the spectacular display of twinkling stars across the night sky. Thanks to the absence of glaring city lights, the stargazing here is amazing!

At the end of a memorable day spent playing at the beach, come home to prepare a tasty meal in the fully equipped kitchen. Essential appliances and ample counter space allow you to create meals as though you never left home. Savor hearty feasts at the 4-person dining room table before gathering around the sitting area on the lower level patio.

3 bedrooms offer a comfortable place to rest and recuperate after exciting days on the beach. The master bedroom features a queen-sized bed and en-suite bathroom for guest's privacy. Additional guests will sleep soundly on the full beds of the 2 other bedrooms.

THE LOCATION

Ideally situated at the West End of the island, this charming cottage will let you enjoy easy access to everything Dauphin Island has to offer!

From here, you'll be a stone's throw from beautiful beaches, great seafood restaurants, prime bird watching opportunities, and the historical Fort Gaines, notable for its important role in the Battle of Mobile Bay during the American Civil War.

House was in decent condition and was clean.

  • 3 of 5

The beds are pretty stiff, so we didn’t really sleep well. There was also sand on our sheets. The house was nice and clean, although there was still sand on the floor, but we did somewhat expect that since it’s not far from the beach. It was pretty spot on with the description as far as closeness to the beach. Not far from any one thing you’d like to do while there. The deck could definitely use some updating as well. All in all we had a great trip and were happy with our vacation.

Great location on a laid back island!

  • 5 of 5

I'm going to be a bit long winded to be thorough!

I rented this home for our first family vacation to the beach and was not disappointed. The price was low enough that I was a little worried what we would find, but we took our chances. The booking process was so smooth, and the owner was very friendly and in contact with us.

The location is literally right across the street from the beach and is just a short walk. There's also a beach at the end of the road that was never very crowded. They even had a movie night while we were in town! Everyone was friendly. We loved Miguels restaurant for mexican food, and Foxy's waffle den and sugar bar for breakfast. The Estuarium was also fun for the kids. We didn't go on the ferry because I got a little sick at the end, but we are definitely going to next time! It was really a wonderful place. Our trip was quiet and relaxing.

To address what's in the previous reviews- the dishwasher worked fine, the air conditioner worked great, and there is plenty of seating outdoor (both upstairs and down) and indoor for everyone. The wi-fi worked the whole time we were there, and the satellite was great for the kids at night when they were unwinding. Also, there are plenty of dishes for whatever you will need. The home was very clean when we arrived. The outdoor shower is great for when you are done at the beach. And lastly, the beach butler was AMAZING so we did not have to carry all of our things up those stairs.

Overall, definitely a good choice for a beach rental on a wonderful island for families!

Cute, Clean, Cozy

  • 5 of 5

Really nice cottage feel, on stilts! Not on the water, but you can see the ocean in front and a canal to the bay out back. It was just my husband and I and we had plenty of down time to read on the deck. This was our first time in Dauphin Island. It's very quiet. There is a designated walking/bike path on the main road. You are not far away from anything.

The house has just about everything you need to cook, including platters and such for entertaining. Linens for the beds and towels and washcloths for the bathrooms. One of the bathrooms has a very large walk in shower. The other has a tub with shower. We spoke to the owner and she gave us a few good tips of things to do. You must stop at the Welcome Center in town. Lots of info.

Family Friendly Beach Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is adorable, and was perfect for our spring break trip. We loved the little touches (a book of all the Disney DVDs, the kiddos were overjoyed!) and I loved that our family of 6 could easily sit at the counter all together for our meals. Plenty of space to store our suitcases out of the way, the washing machine and dishwasher do their job and you can’t find that in a hotel đź’ś. The owner was quick to respond to our few questions, and to recommend some sights while we were there. Thank you, for sharing your house and we look forward to visiting again soon!!

The front guest room carpet is very stained and not appealing.
