Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 8

You’ll love the new great room furniture in this wonderful beach house! We listened to the reviews and made it even better than before. This beautiful house has a large great room with cathedral ceilings, perfect for a large family getaway. With 4 bedrooms and 2 baths, Beach Bum comfortably sleeps 8. Large windows give you a picturesque view of the beach just across the street and it’s a very short walk to the water. Be sure to check out the aerial drone video and Google Map of "Beach Bum" in the Media Tab above.

The huge, open kitchen is well-stocked with cookware, ice maker, microwave, oven/cooktop, toaster, dishwasher and coffee maker. An expansive bar offers plenty of counter space for entertaining, and the dining room has a large table for 8.

The bedrooms are set up perfectly for couples to share the house or for a large family with 2 King bedrooms, 1 Queen bedroom and a fourth bedroom with two twins. All bedrooms have flat screen TVs. The Master bedroom has a king bed and flat screen TV, and the Master bath has a garden tub, separate shower, and double sink vanity. Another bedroom connects to this bath. This bedroom has a queen bed, flat screen TV, and closet. Down the hall, you’ll find two more bedrooms. Both have flat screen TVs and one has a king bed while the other has two twin beds.

Enjoy the gulf breeze on the great front deck overlooking the Gulf of Mexico or relax on the shady screened porches on the north side of the house. There’s nothing like a raised beach house to get a fabulous view and wonderful sea breezes. Another great feature of this raised beach house is underneath the house where you’ll find a picnic table and charcoal barbeque for those great afternoon cook-outs. There’s also lots of parking plus room outside for the children to play in the sun. So many options for family space together or apart.

Best of all, Beach Bum is a Dog Friendly Property. A small non-refundable of charge of $100 per dog is required and must be disclosed at the time your reservation is made. Just let us know the total number of dogs, the breed, the weight and confirm that each dog guest is on a flea, tick and heartworm prevention program with vaccinations up to date. On Dauphin Island, our beaches are dog friendly too. The Town of Dauphin Island does have a leash law requiring dogs to be on leash outdoors and that dog waste from vacation property yards, beaches and public areas be picked up and disposed of properly. So bring those pooper scoopers and help keep our beaches dog friendly!

The owners have provided everything to make sure your vacation is comfortable, fun and relaxing so you can be “beach bums” too.

Reviewer Comments:

This property was exactly as described with one exception...the bedroom with the two twin beds has been switched with the Queen room. Didn't pose a big problem...we were staying at the house with our sons family and had planned to give them the king bed with the twin beds bedroom and adjoining bathroom so they could have the larger area and more of a family suite. With the twins being moved, they moved to the other side of the house with the hall bathroom vs the master. But other than that minor inconvenience, the house worked perfectly for us. Semi busy street between the house and the gulf side beach, but the bike lane made walking between very easy. A beachfront home would have been ideal, but for the price and location, Beach Bum was a great alternative. Island Resort Management was very easy to work with and addressed the minor problems we had (light bulbs needed changed) quickly and were very friendly, making sure all our problems were addressed. Would definitely stay again!

Beach Bum is a very nice, spacious beach house across the street from the beach. Just cross the main highway, down a street for a short walk To the beach. The extra fridge in the laundry room was very helpful to keep water & drinks cold.

The couches were worn out and very uncomfortable. ....The carpet was very very dirty...needs to be replaced with tile...easier to keep clean...the beds were very comfortable. .The towels were very clean and plentiful.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us and for adding your comments to help us improve Beach Bum. As you know, it is a great house and we are always looking for ways to make it better for our vacationers to enjoy their stay. The owner of Beach Bum has replaced the great room sofas and chairs since your stay. We had not heard anything about the sofas prior to your review. They also added a picnic table to the front porch. We clean the carpet regularly when the house is vacant and do our best to spot clean if anything comes up during the busy season. Thank you again for your recommendation and we look forward to your coming back to the island soon.

Reviewer Comments:

We loved the house! There was sooooooooo much room. everyone had space, and the kitchen was so nice for HUGE family get-to-gathers. I think there needs to be 2 trash pickups or 3 cans. that was the only thing we had to deal with. the air conditioning works good, the lighting was good, TV was excellent, and the laundry room was wonderful, even having a 2nd fridge!The property was clean. it was close to the lane that took you to the beach, and I would highly recommend this property!
