A Great House

  • 4 of 5

We arrived after 5 on Saturday and the key that was left for us didn't fit the locks. We panicked but it was resolved within the hour.

The house is ocean front but set back maybe 80 yards from the water. Perhaps to save the pine trees that are there??? The front exposure is with the weeds trimmed away. It was a little overgrown in July 2017. And there is an abundance of stickers so plan on wearing your shoes until you're at the water's edge.

Us old folks stayed on the main level but we did tour the whole house and it's huge. The living room furniture is well placed and adjacent to the kitchen and the glass doors leading to the deck and Gulf. It's a great view. The main deck facing the Gulf has numerous chairs for lounging.

Everything worked well and was functional. Except maybe for the exterior lighting. It needs help.

This was our 7th house we've rented as a family and the worst beds we've encountered. They crunched when you sat on them and crunched when you got up. Our queen bed may have been the best but it was still not good. On some of the king beds you could feel the coil springs pressing on you. The beds were very disappointing.

We never ran out of hot water with 8 of us bathing. That includes 2 teen boys! The water is very hard and does not lather. We used bottle water most of the time for drinking.

We enjoyed the large kitchen because we like to cook together. That was a plus!

I would say for the price Dauphin on the Gulf was OK. We had a a large, clean and well working house on the waterfront.

Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

What a great house!! We visited during Easter, which you would expect to be busy but it was very quiet there. The beach was not crowded and we saw very few people. The beach is untouched and rustic, which we absolutely loved. The house itself was well kept and we did not experience any problems during our stay. We definitely plan to visit again.

Perfect place for families

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place! Plenty of room for 3 families, and it was a short walk down to the beach. House was clean and very well maintained.

Cabin was roomy, well supplied, and close to water!

  • 5 of 5

Six ladies on annual beach trip - found this cabin to be one of the best we have ever had! It is very large, was clean and well kept, and best of all, just a short path down to the water. Loved that it had an uncovered deck on second floor, and covered one on first. Never turned the TV on, but WiFi and A/C worked well. Good restaurants close by, and lots of friendly island people!

Very nice beach location and house

  • 4 of 5

The house and location were perfect for our family get-together for 4 nights and 3 days. The kitchen is very well supplied with pots, pans, baking dishes, utensils, etc. The beach is a short walk from the house. The house has unobstructed views of the Gulf, and three of the bedrooms had french doors to a deck overlooking the Gulf. The only downside was that the wireless internet never worked and the rental agency was unable to arrange for it to be fixed. The internet provider needed account information from the owners, which was not available to the rental agency nor could the owners be contacted during our stay. We ended up spending at least $50 extra dollars on phone plan data so that we could create our own wireless via phone hotspot.
