About Richard Schmohl
I am retired from the fire department and bought the home from my family. Two months later hurricane Katrina totally removed the house from the lot. We rebuilt finishing March 2008. During winter of 2016 we began a total update with paint, appliances, heat/air, and furniture.
Richard Schmohl purchased this House in 2008
Why Richard Schmohl chose Dauphin Island
The original house was built by my grandfather in 1956 for the pleasure of his daughters family. As a child I had full freedom running the beach with very few houses in sight. In 2005 my family wanted to sell and I did not so I bought it from them. Hurricane Katrina totally removed the house from the property two months later. Heart broken, I began to rebuilt on August 12, 2007 finishing March 21, 2008 naming the house 'Grace Like Rain', with my first rental client checking in on 3/22/08. When you experience it yourself, you will understand my love for the location.
What makes this House unique
THE PRIVATE Plunge POOL: House features an elevated fiberglass pool. We have a Private, heated Pool facing the Gulf beach of Dauphin Island. House Books Quickly. Pool is Pre-Set @ 90 Degrees oct thru mid May however, that is not to imply that it will be 90 degrees or even be warm enough during the winter to swim. (PLEASE NOTE THAT WEATHER CONDITIONS MAY CAUSE POOL TO BE HOTTER OR COLDER THAN SETTINGS) POOL SIZE IS 8'X15'(4 feet deep). (holds 10-12 People) We cannot guarantee performance and function of the pool and no discounts will be given due to any issues with the pool. The house itself is better than advertised. It is well stocked and everything you would need is available and works. A perfect place for a large group. The living/dining/kitchen area are spacious, with plenty of room for everyone. Great location on the beach. Vacant lot next door same owner. Volley ball net and tether ball.

A perfectly beautiful place for a beach wedding
This house and beach property are amazing. You can't get anything even close to this anywhere in Gulf Shores or Orange Beach. It is quiet, peaceful and relaxing. We were married there on the beach 2 weeks ago where God blessed us with a beautiful day and perfect weather! The house is beautifully decorated and was just perfect for our family members who came from out of town to stay with us before and after the wedding. It is obvious the owners have thought of anything and everything you could possibly want and need to have the most relaxing and enjoyable time at the beach. Our wedding on the beach and reception inside turned out better than we imagined. Every single person who was there told us how impressed they were with the house, the way it is set up and how well furnished it is. Of course, we were thrilled that they all were as happy with our choice for the wedding venue as we were. Even the workers building a new house a couple of lots down the beach from the wedding were respectful and stopped working (to reduce noise) and watched the wedding ceremony. We saw very few other people on the beach during our stay too which was also a plus. And the beautiful shells on the beach!!! We can't say enough about this property. We now know what so many other people who have stayed here know: Richard and Gloria have done a superb job making this house a place for a memorable vacation for everyone who stays here. It is heavenly! Thank you Richard and Gloria for allowing us to have such a memorable wedding and vacation experience at your home!
Our clan Go-To destination!
We have spent Easter Week here 2016, 17, & 18; a multi-generations clan. Our senior in college & the junior in highschool rearranged their schedules to be included; unprompted! This home is clean, spacious, and fab equipped. 3 generations on a remarkable holiday provided with lovely sleeping quarters, a huge kitchen, fit grill on the deck, music/dancing, shared movies in comfy chairs. Plus, all the interactions guaranteed by white sand - ocean swims - pool soak on the deck - wind for the kites - beach soccer. Jeepers, we all really like this stay! Allow me to express our appreciation to the detail put into this property year after year; it just keeps getting better for us.
The Perfect Beach House
The house was perfect for our families to gather for a Thanksgiving holiday beach week. It was well stocked with cookware for large groups (adults and children). The home was also well-stocked with comfortable seating inside, deckside, and beachside (plus kid beach toys for plenty of sandcastle creations). The community area inside the home was larger than the photos appeared so we were even happier when we arrived. There was space for everyone to either be together or find privacy somewhere inside or out. The kids loved the hot tub and played in it every day. The house was well-positioned to enjoy both sunrise and sunset and there were water views from almost every room. TVs in every room although we didn't use them very much. We loved it and would go back again!
The best place we have stayed!
Everything you need is in this place. Beautifully decorated and spacious. Owners are the greatest as well!
Can't beat it!
Wow! 'Grace Like Rain' is a beautiful home full of all the amenities you could hope for -- beautifully decorated, well stocked kitchen, comfortable beds, etc etc. It was perfect for our large family (great grandparents down to 18 month old!). Unfortunately we had to be relocated due to Hurricane Nate but we are so grateful to Richard for setting all of that up for us! He went above and beyond to help us enjoy our vacation. We will most definitely be returning and staying at this beautiful home! We could not recommend this home, or its owner, any more!!
Visit the Sea Lab, Historic Fort Gaines, view birds and wildlife and explore secluded beaches at the Audubon Sanctuary, fish on the beach or charter a boat for sightseeing or deep-sea fishing, swim, bike, walk, collect shells, or just RELAX!
