About Bob

Yes, I like to fish. This beauty wasn't caught here on Dauphin but you should have seen the one I had in the surf the other day....

I also enjoy cycling and usually do a few 100 mile rides each year for charitable organizations.

Why Bob chose Alabama

I've been coming to Dauphin Island for years. You can't beat the peace and quiet and friendly folks that are here.

We've been working to update the property each year during the off season. For 2015, we added a fireplace (electric), updated the master bath, and added an outdoor shower. For 2016....Main bath remodel - new layout with new fixtures. New floors in the family room and kitchen. New stairs and decking.

If you're a returning guest, we think you'll be pleasantly surprised. If you're a new guest, you'll see the types of updates we add to make each vacation a great, comfortable stay.

What makes this house unique

2 ride on top kayaks, a mix of bicycles from a Barbie bike with training wheels to a tandem, and a few other sizes between. Last count was 8 I think but I keep bringing more each time I go......

Amazing Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The Tiki Hut was amazing! This house offered everything we needed and more! Between me, my husband and three kids (ages 10, 12 & 15), I'm used to packing everything but the kitchen sink to make sure we have everything we need. It took about 10min after arrival to realize that i packed way too much! The owners made sure there was no need to run to the store to pick up those things we often forget. The cabinets were stocked with everything from extra toothbrushes, razors, shaving cream, bug spray, cleaning products, laundry detergent, extra blankets, beach towels, blow dryer, coffee w/filters, sugar, even brochures on local attractions/activities/resturants/maps! Although we had packed all the necessities, it was nice to see them there just in case. Having the washer and dryer was so handy, especially when we got back home and the only laundry that had to be done were the clothes we wore home! My husband especially liked the stacked washer and dryer which meant we didn't have to bend down to get clothes out of the dryer! (he's now on a search to buy one for home!) The Tiki Hut was located just a very short walk to the beach and was extremely private, which was my favorite part! Because the beach is so private in this area, i was able to to take my camera and tripod and get awesome family pictures on the beach without having to worry about other people being in the photos!The owners even had a little wagon we used to take to the beach for the cooler and some beach toys which was way easier than carrying everything. We were all able to go on bike rides with all the bikes included with the house. (we also brought 2 bikes, just something else we didn't need to pack) Me and my husband were able to get up every morning and go kayaking before the kids woke up. One morning we took a bike ride to the end of the island to Fort Gaines. There are great bike/walking paths on the entire island! One day we took the ferry and spent part of the day at Gulf Shores just to break things up a little and let the kids do some shopping, but it was nice to know we didn't have to deal with the massive crowd every day, one day was more than enough! We took a daulphin & lighthouse tour on the "Duke"one day and rented jet skis the next. The kids had a blast! The kids were even able to walk to the beach at night without us while we were able to relax in the house with no worries. All in all this was a great family vacation and we've already talked about coming back next year!

Perfect long weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and two kids (10&8) went here for a long weekend when they were out of school for MLK day. The location was perfect for us. There is a public piece of property with a little mini-beach across the street which made for easy fishing and kayaking. The beach is an easy walk( <5 min) on a dune trail or bike ride away (about 2 min). We rode bikes to Skinner's seafood market and to Cadillac park/ Fort Gaines/ Estuarium each day on the public bike trail (2-4 miles one way). We also rode our bikes to the West end beach which seemed to be about 2 miles. The house was perfectly situated in the middle of both sides of the island making it conveniently located to everything. We did not use our car the whole time we were there but everything would have been less than a 5 minute drive from the house. We brought our kid's bikes b/c we weren't sure of the bike sizes at the house, but there were multiple bikes of all sizes, including a tandem bike which was super fun. There were 2 kayaks/ paddles/ life jackets etc there as well. Although we didn't use any of the things b/c of the time of year, there was also all types of water toys/ umbrellas/ chairs/ kickboards-wave boards/buckets etc available. The house itself was adorable with an awesome deck which we used quite a bit for morning coffee and our meals. The kitchen was very well supplied with everything I needed and more. The bedrooms and bathrooms were clean and nicely decorated with plenty of towels/ washcloths/ soap etc. Bob was also very easy to work with and responded quickly to all of my emails/ questions with great suggestions. I also had to call him once when we got to the house and he walked me through the situation. Overall, the house was perfect for my family and what we went there to do and I would highly recommend this place to anyone.jb

Nice and cozy little spot on the island

  • 5 of 5

After having my reservation accepted, I was excited to spend time here. I was even more happy with my decision after seeing how comfortable and well maintained the place was. A home away from home indeed. Myself and my fiancé really enjoyed our stay here. The house is well taking care of and I treated it the same as I would my own home. Thanks again Bob for allowing us to have such a comfortable time here! I've already recommended the place to friends and family. Dauphine Island is a gem of an island. Beautiful property and an awesome location. :)

Dauphin Island's Hidden Treasure!

  • 5 of 5

I sit here enjoying our last evening on the island for the year, and I can not believe how wonderful this week has been. We've been coming to the Gulf for a number of years, this being our second year on the island, and I can confidently tell you that this rental is the best one that my family has ever had the opportunity to stay in.

The rental is located just across the street from a very nice section of the beach. We went to the West End Beach our first day, then decided to check out the beach across from the rental...Sold! You won't find restrooms or a snack hut, but you will find a beautiful long stretch of beach with hardly another soul within hearing distance. You can see them, but you can jam to your music as loud as you want without fearing that you're bothering someone else.

As far as the rental itself, we saw the pictures, but in person it is SO much more! The floors and second bathroom have been redone since the last time we had looked at pictures. The carpeting in the bedrooms is still the same fabric, which be warned, can be a little rough on tender feet. But, it's nothing to deter you away! The deck is new, the grill looks new, the washer and dryer works fabulously!

This rental comes with absolutely everything you can imagine. In the kitchen, the only thing that we didn't find...a pizza pan. Other than that, you name it, it's here! There's even a slow cooker in the cabinets! Drawers and drawers of cooking utensils, plenty of pots and pans, cutting boards, and more plates/bowls/etc than you could probably use in a week! There are plenty of extra towels, blankets, sheets, washing detergents, fabric sheets, etc. We brought our own products since we always needed more than the 'starter packs' some rentals leave, but the only thing we had to break into was the toilet paper! As far as beach gear...We brought our own umbrella and beach tent, toys, you name it since we travel with 2 young kids. We didn't need any of it! The rental's shed comes with umbrellas, chairs, a beach wagon, kayaks, paddles, life vests, fishing rods, a kite, bikes, and I can't remember what all else. You MUST try the tandem bike, especially if you have kids! Our 7 year old thought that was just the coolest thing ever!

Overall, we can't rave enough. As a mom returning back to school, I don't know how we'll get back next summer, but I can assure you that we WILL be returning to the Tiki Hut some how! Do yourself a favor, don't debate on island rentals. Contact Bob.

Excellent spot on Dauphin Island

  • 5 of 5

My husband and our two youngest daughters (14 and 12) stayed a week at the Tiki Hut, and loved it! We took advantage of all of tourist spots--Fort Gaines, the Estuarium, bird sanctuary and even the indian shell mound area. The house itself is gorgeous, clean and well-kept. Love that it is so close to the lagoon area because we could quickly and easily walk over to kayak with the kayaks provided. We also brought paddle boards, and there was plenty of room beneath the house to store everything. Biked one day, and the island has plenty of bike paths and very little traffic, so we were not concerned about safety at all. Beach area is not much further from the house than the lagoon, and is very quiet and private--the wagon provided made transporting our beach stuff very easy. We did visit and pay to go in West Beach to see if the waves were bigger, but quickly decided that the spot across the street from the house was a much better overall option. I think we tried every restaurant on the island at some point, and our favorite food was at Barnacle Bill's. Favorite overall restaurant for combined food and atmosphere was the Islander.

We all four enjoyed our stay, and all four voted that when we start making repeat vacation trips, we would stay at Tiki Hut again! The owner always promptly responded to questions, and even left us wine to enjoy! Super nice!

Great beach vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to Alabama and we absolutely loved it. The house was perfect and very kid friendly. The owners take great care of their home and it really shows. I loved that so much was provided and I didn't have to bring a lot. We rode bikes, fished and kayaked everyday. It was wonderful having everything there for our use. The beaches were beautiful and not crowded at all. Everything about our vacation was great and I would definitely come back.
