Very clean, spacious and convenient house
We stayed three days at Lazy Pineapple house. We were 15 people.
The house was very clean. The kitchen is well equipped. Living room and dining room areas are very spacious.
We had to call to customer service for a simple requirement and they came Immediately.
The beach is just three blocks from the house. There is a large parking lot (7 cars).
They should pay attention to the extra mattresses . It’s time to renew then. They need blanket for winter time.
, I would recommend Lazy Pineapple house.

Great house with pool, in-laws house and close walk to beach!
We ended up booking this house at the very last minute! We were a large group with kids and adults and were headed to Dauphin Island when the hurricane hit! Luckily our homeowner there was gracious and let us cancel. We found this house and booked it the same day we checked in. Overall the house was great! The master bedroom, bathroom and closet are HUGE! The other rooms are decent size as well as the bathroom. There were several extra mattresses in closets with clean linens if the bed arrangement doesn't work- floor space in master bedroom and in law quarters. The living room is a little small but the large dining room table and breakfast bar are great for the size of the party we had. The extra house (room) was great with an extra fridge, bed and bathroom as well as living room. The cons- the walk to the beach was about 5-7 minutes with no parking and a very small section of "public" beach between two areas of private beach. There was a sidewalk! The parking at the house was VERY limited- 1 lane, fit 3 cars back to back. The house was clean, but the pool was not! There had just been a hurricane so leaves, etc are understandable, however there was NO chlorine at all in the pool or system. We had to clean the pool ourselves. There was only one hot pad and limited towels for kitchen use. There was NO broom- staying next to the beach a broom is necessary! Overall the house was great! We will return! The layout worked well for our family!

My family and I will definitely be back to the Lazy Pineapple! It was close enough to the beach that we could walk- it's so nice not to have to worry about driving and finding parking at a beach access! The private pool in the backyard was amazing! I don't know if my kids liked the pool or the beach more! The beds were very comfortable and the house was immaculately clean. I love how it was stocked with all the basics to get us started! We couldn't have asked for a better place to spend our family vacation! I can't wait to come back!!!!

House was good size but floors were dirt walking barefoot on house made our feet black from the bottom. Carpet on stairs dirty. Ran out of toilet paper there was only one roll of toilet paper per bathroom for 20 people not enough. The pool and area around pool were dirty/trashy. The wifi was turned off 3 hour before our departure time. In kitchen no extra trash bags.
Hi Ana, we're glad you appreciated the size of this beautiful home and hope you enjoyed the close proximity to shops and the beach. We send every guest information about what to expect as far as starters of toilet paper and the like so that you will know what to expect. We will send out an inspector to determine whether we need to schedule a deep clean early for this property. We do not turn off wifi, maybe there was an issue there at the end of your stay. We are uncertain what you mean with your comments about the pool area but are getting quotes to spruce up the landscaping around the pool and adjusting the pool company's cleaning schedule. Thank you for your feedback.
