My Happy Place
After reviewing some rather dated reviews about this particular rental, I was leery of renting it but went on faith and am I forever glad I did!!! Loved the stay and accommodations. The place could use a little work but nothing major. For example, the exterior door knobs are very difficult to unlock, but manageable. Great spot and great views all around and up (the upstairs balcony for star gazing) is just what this ol' gal needed and hoped for! I'd go again!
Disgusting carpet, pet stains all over and ripped in front of the sliding glass door which was almost impossible to open. Door knobs were very loose! Positives were the AC was great- and plenty of hot water. The ACP real Estate company was very helpful, and the area was beautiful. But the house needs multiple repairs.
Thank you for bringing these issues to our attention. We will look into this. We are glad that you enjoyed the area and that we could be helpful and we will check into this. We hope that you will consider us again in the future.
Great location and very spacious.
The house was large and quiet. The location was perfect! The tile floors are perfect for bringing dogs to the beach. The only suggestion is to assure that the fire alarms are connected and that the dinnerware is a complete set with all cups and bowls.
We are glad you enjoyed your stay and will look into the concerns you brought to our attention.
Great location, home repairs/accommodations need repair
Location is great. Pleased we could bring our dogs. Here were the items that dissatisfied us:
Prior pee and poop stains on carpet
Laundry and pantry doors broken
Main double doors sealed shut and can not be open
Only one pan to cook with
Beach chairs rusted and broken
Upstairs sliding door very difficult to open
Grill rusted shut
Upstairs bathroom vent covered in dust and toilet paper holder broken
Master bath drain cover loose
All this was noted to the rental agency.
Wonderful location, irritating accomodations
Here is our list:
1 - could only get into the building thru one door and it took work to open it. Please inform future renters which door opens with the keys.
2 - Outdoor doorknobs very loose and rusty.
3 - Kitchen garbage can was a 5 gallon can vs the usual 13 gallon can. One extra garbage can included. I left a full box of 13 gallon garbage cans.
4 - Upstairs bedroom screen leading to deck torn at the bottom corner, taking away guest's ability to hear/feel the surf.
5 - We had to replace 4 outside bulbs on the main deck, plus one on the upper deck.
6 - Ice maker was not turned on prior to our arrival. Most renters do this.
7 - No light over stove cooktop?????
8 - No lighting for the outside stairs. There are 24 stairs. The really should be illuminated.
9 - Living room center double doors are foamed shut and locked, making it impossible to totally enjoy the sea breeze.
10 - BBQ Grill: Rusted close. Could not use.
11 - Camp's location is prime, but considering our remarks above, it is not worth the money. Owners don't make sure "creature comforts" are there: coffee filters, Dish soaps, laundry detergents, etc. Please provide a minimum of tools: hammer, pliers.
12 - Inside sign states there are 9 kitchen towels. We found 3. Same type of situation with other towels, wash cloths.
13 - 2.5 Bathrooms advertised. One of the full bath downstairs has a raced floor and peeling paint by the window. Floor of shower is a safety issue. Chrome drain cover not secured - another safety issue.
14 - Living room: eiling fan to the left of back door missing chain to moderate fan speed.
15 - Toilet paper holder in upstairs bathroom non existant.
16 - Upstairs bath: shower did not work - shower head there.
WHEN POSTING AN AD FOR THIS UNIT, TELL PEOPLE TO BRING EVERYTHING. HOUSE ONLY INCLUDED IN RENT.
Lovely beach stay!
We enjoyed our stay in Dauphin Island at the Beach Comber! The house was cozy and had cold A/C, all the comforts of home, and working appliances. DirectTV was available in several rooms. The beach was just a short walk away and the kids were able to play in the surf and find lots of shells. The neighboring vacationers were quiet and we had the time of our lives. This area of the island is not too crowded - definitely recommended for those who are looking for a beach spot to call your own.
There were several things to do on the island. We also took several day trips to nearby Mobile and Gulf Shores. Be sure and check out the Island Chevron and the Lighthouse Bakery for breakfast.
Thanks again, from Kansas.
