Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 8

This lovely Gulfside island cottage is perfect for a family getaway. With a homey feel, a beautiful porch for tanning or reading, and astounding views, you'll want to come back year after year to be "Beachside!"

This beautiful bungalow has it all! Just one house back from the Gulf, it is so close you can take ten giant steps and dip your toes in the Gulf of Mexico. The large master bedroom, with a king bed and flat screen TV, has an incredible view of the Gulf-front deck. The master bath has a double sink vanity, large garden tub/ shower combination. The bedrooms on the opposite side of the house share a large bathroom. One has a queen size bed, flat screen TV and a spectacular view of the Gulf and the other bedroom has a king size bed and flat screen TV. Be sure to check out the aerial drone video and the Google Map of "Beachside" in the Media Tab above.

This wonderfully equipped kitchen is open to the great room and not only has an unbelievable view of the Gulf, but also has a beautiful view of the Sound from the kitchen window. There are plenty of cabinets and a large bar for food prep plus seating for 4. A huge pantry and a laundry room just off the kitchen. This home also has a gas grill, perfect for summer afternoon barbecues! The main table has seating for 8, perfect for family meals. The great room has French doors leading to the Gulf porch with a commanding view of the beach and water. There is plenty of seating, including two sofas and recliners. One of the sofas is a queen sleeper. A 55” flat screen TV is centrally located in the great room so that it is easily viewed from the kitchen and dining area and there is plenty to choose from on the movie channels offered.

Out on the porch, you’ll find the perfect place to get a tan, read a book, and watch the perfect sunset. And sometimes you’ll even be lucky enough to spot the dolphins…

If you can't leave your furbabies at home, Beachside is a Dog Friendly Property. A non-refundable of charge of $100 per dog is required for each one that comes to Beachside. All pets must be reported at the time your reservation is made. We will require the total number of dogs, their breed, and weight. All dogs must be on a flea, tick and heartworm prevention program and have all current vaccinations. The Town of Dauphin Island leash law requires dogs to be on leash and properly secured when outdoors and also requires that dog waste from rental property yard, beaches and public areas be picked up and properly disposed of.

There is a new house being built next to Beachside to the southeast. The new house recently started construction. We anticipate the house being dried in by April 8, 2017 and completed by June 1, 2017. Beachside is a great house in the same great location although no longer the last house before the beach.

"Beachside" had everything we needed for a great week at the beach.Property manager provided excellent service; the A/C went out one day and it was fixed the same day. We enjoyed Fort Gaines and taking the ferry across Mobile Bay. We also enjoyed at "Pirate's Bar and Grill" a circular-shaped restaurant near the golf course. We would definitely recommend Dauphin Island and this house to friends and family.

Reviewer Comments:

The house is about 120 ft. from the beach. It’s beautifully decorated with a huge deck. The deck is a bit weathered but we enjoyed every evening out there. The spacious kitchen is well stocked with utensils and cookware. Bring a few plastic containers for left overs. We left a couple there. The ice maker is a bit slow. The master suite is very spacious. We absolutely loved our vacation to celebrate my parents 70th anniversary! I loved this house and the island! I recommend Skinners and Islanders for good food.

Reviewer Comments:

You cannot beat the location and view from this property. Directly on the beach, have your coffee while listening to the waves and watching the dolphins swim by. We saw dolphins every day during our visit. On the downside, I would recommend that the owner upgrade kitchen tools. Also providing some additional serving bowls and platters would be helpful.

Reviewer Comments:

Was a bit disappointed. The new house in front of Beachside does take up a LOT of the view and when the families from that house spill out into my direct view of Gulf, well, that's no fun either! Also, if the property (Beachside) is up for sale, which it currently is, then you need to let renters know that people will be coming in and out on their dime. I didn't appreciate, after a LONG drive, that I was asked to have people walk thru. I allowed first ones, but then was asked AGAIN... almost pushing us out the door so the next people could look at it! Checkout is at 10 a.m. but the people wanted to look at it at 9 a.m.!!! Yes, we left early due to subtropical storm, but that is beside the point! I pay a LOT of money for me, to have my peace for a week. This time I had a walk thru, a termite guy, and a request for another walk thru - DURING MY RENTAL TIME!!! And you need a new shower curtain liner in the master bath or soak it in bleach! I am marking I'd not recommend to a friend as it is a nice house overall, but with this experience... Just not thrilled with it as much as I was first time I rented it... And if I do return to Dauphin Island, I will probably look for something else.
