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.

Reviewer Comments:

We had a wonderful vacation at Beachside the first week in July. We arrived during a downpour, but the rest of the week was sunny (and a bit windy). The wind cools down the heat so wouldn't have changed it. The ocean was fabulously warm and the sand is so white! (I am more familiar with the Atlantic Ocean beaches so this was a real treat.) The house is well-appointed, but bring lots of groceries since there isn't a fully-stocked grocery store on the island. We frequented the seafood store, which was great and owned by a nice family. Phil was super -- the kitchen faucet wasn't functioning correctly but he promptly sent a very nice plumber to replace it. The grill hadn't been cleaned in a while, but other than that the place was spotless. The house used to be the first on the ocean, but another house has been built slightly to the left of the ocean view. Not a problem if your expectations are set. You can rent kayaks delivered right to your doorstep! Will be back!

Excellent vacation home lived up to the pictures...Well maintained, clean and very nice...all the close to the Gulf...We had a perfect week of weather, immediate;y before the Texas hurricane....Kudos to the managing company for a job well done.....The Island was very quiet as school had started for many....I think rent rates should drop in mid-August to reflect this rather than Labor Day....School starts 2-3 wks earlier than when I attended....We were surrounded by empty homes.......Peace and quiet in a lovely place

Reviewer Comments:

The home was great - excellent layout, ton of space, great location right on the ocean. The only thing that brought it down to 4 stars is the lack of amenities in the home. We've not rented a home on the coast before where we've had to bring along staple items such as toilet paper, trash bags, paper towels, beach towels, beach chairs, etc. It was a great home & we had a wonderful time - it just seems they cut a few unnecessary corners that would have made it perfect.

Our stay at Beachside was amazing! The house was perfect for our family of six adults and two young children. Right on the water so we could easily go back and forth between the house and beach. I highly recommend this property!
