We take pride in the condition of this property and the quality of the accommodations and amenities. We have intentionally positioned this house as a premium property - largely because we live in it a significant portion of the year. We keep our headcount limits lower than most in order to ensure your comfort. We aim to serve those that recognize their vacation time as highly valuable and wish to spend it in quality and comfort.

Guest Limit of 10 total, with no more than 8 adults. No exceptions, children count regardless of age. This is strictly enforced. Violation WILL result in eviction.

4 bedrooms, 3 baths. Spacious 2350 square foot open floor plan with high ceilings. Very private - not another house within 150 feet. Huge windows with bay views everywhere in the living space. Luxurious upstairs private master suite has its own living room, huge bath with 2 person jetted jacuzzi tub, and private deck. Well equipped kitchen (renovated in 2017) has everything. Laundry room with washer/dryer and sink. Free wifi internet & 4 large flat screen TVs with DirecTV DVRs. Huge screened-in deck. Plenty of chairs and lounges on the decks along with gas and charcoal grills.

Brand new dock with electricity/lighting and fresh water, Fish, crab, and relax in the shade on the dock. Pole holders are mounted everywhere. Bring your boat. You are not just renting a house – you are renting this pier, too, and you will be glad you did. Private sandy bay beach out the back door and the Gulf beach is just steps out the front door. Covered concrete parking pad under house. This is the Pet-friendliest place you will find - lowest pet rate, highest pet limit on the island. Crates and dog beds supplied. Get the dogs out on the beach right out your back door.

The bay side is a great place to be. The Gulf beach is directly out the front door and across the street. It’s no more than just a couple hundred feet. Out the back door you have your own wide, sandy bay beach and your own dock. There are not many rental houses with a dock on a sandy beach. This is one of the very few. We have full DirecTV with DVR on each TV. That means hundreds of channels, in-demand, programs saved on the DVRs, plus Sirius and Pandora Radio built into each TV. You're not here to watch TV, but trust us, you will get tired of 40 basic cable channels on old low definition TVs at other rentals.

Bedrooms: 2 Kings, 1 Full + Twin, 2 Twin. Bedrooms have ceiling fans and light-blocking window treatments with black-out backing. You will not be woken by unwanted sunlight at the crack of dawn.

The first Master Suite is a huge upstairs area that has a King bed, a master bath with two-person jetted jacuzzi tub and separate shower, a separate living room with large screen TV, mini-fridge, and coffee maker, and a walk-out private deck with bay view. This suite can be used to sleep additional guests or can just be enjoyed as a massive luxurious suite for two.

The second Master bedroom is on the main level and has a King bed, TV, and private bath.

Also on the main level are two more spacious bedrooms. One with a Full and Twin. The other has a pair of Twin beds. Between them is a large bathroom with double vanities and separated (by doors) toilet and shower rooms.

Turnover Day is typically Saturday: The vast majority of rentals on this island are weekly with check-in/check-out on Saturdays. In order to avoid interruption of the norm (and avoid turning our calendar into a jigsaw puzzle), we may choose not to accept short stays or reservations that don't begin or end on a Saturday.

Pet Friendly - dog fee only $10/night per dog. (Snowbird pet fee $100/per pet) No stated dog limit, but owner must review if more than 2. Pets may reduce the number of people allowed. Contact us for details.

Special Note regarding young children: While the bay water is very shallow, the pond in the back yard was cut out by machine and is 8 feet deep with some steep entry points. If you have young children, you may prefer our other (pondless) property, Fish Bones, VRBO #471724.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: We've been coming to Dauphin Island since moving to Alabama in 2001. We've always found it somewhat difficult to travel with our dog pack, so we finally bought a house called Fish Bones (VRBO listing 471724) so they could come with us and enjoy the beach. We put a lot of hard work into Fish Bones and it is now renting so much that we hardly get to go there. When this house became available, it all just kind of fell together perfectly and we couldn't let it pass us by. Now we have the two dog-friendliest houses on the island. We run an animal rescue organization in Birmingham. Visit at FCDF.org.

Why the Owner Chose Dauphin Island, AL, USA:
Dauphin Island has the Gulf of Mexico on the south side and just a couple hundred yards away is the Mississippi Sound / Intercoastal Waterway on the north side. Dauphin Island is also a uniquely dog-friendly place, unlike anywhere else. There are very few places like Dauphin Island. If you're looking for a 'shopping mall by the sea', look elsewhere. There's no shortage of beach towns that have turned into neon lights, franchise food, and upscale mall stores by the ocean. We have none of that here. No Pizza Hut. No Tommy Hilfiger store. Just uncrowded beaches and throwback style restaurants. Come to get away.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
You are renting a dock with this house. We cannot overstate what that adds to your stay. The Gulf beach is great, but having your own dock on the bay beach is a completely different experience. It’s like having a little cabin right on the water. This house is on the west end of the island where the land starts to get pretty narrow. So it is a very short distance from the house to either the Gulf of Mexico, or the Mississippi Sound (aka, the bay). Out the back door is the beach on the the bay. This beach is great for swimming, fishing and walking. This is about the last house at the west end of the group of houses on Bridgeview Dr. There are not many houses beyond us to the west. So there is a long stretch of open beach to the west that is usually pretty empty. The fishing is great here. You can wade out a couple hundred yards from shore and have all the space in the world to cast. Out the front door is the Gulf of Mexico. You need only walk down the driveway, cross Bienville Blvd, and enter the beach area right at Seneca. You do not have to pass thru anybody's lot or turn down the street to find beach access. It is just right there in front of the house. Take your pick - bay beach or Gulf beach. They're both extremely close.
