6 Bedrooms, 4 1/2 Baths. Fully stocked kitchen in the house. Kayaks and bikes.

Great for families to relax and enjoy themselves with a wonderful private beach. We think it is the perfect beachfront house to get away from it all. Our house has 6 bedrooms, 4 1/2 baths and. And outside shower. There are 2 decks and you can see the water from both. We cleared out lower branches of the pines for a much better view. It is comfortable and we know you will feel right at home.

We had new decking installed under the house and on the bottom balcony in July 2018. We also installed a new washer and dryer, refrigerator, oven/stove top and dishwasher in the Spring of 2016. There are 2 full refrigerator/freezers for your use. We are constantly updating the house.

Here are a few quotes from our guest book. "You have an amazing beautiful home! We are so grateful that you shared it with us. The first hour alone was worth every mile and penny! Everything was PERFECT! We all wish we could live here year round." Here is another one, " Beautiful home! Great beds, so comfy. Plenty of room for lots of Rest and Relaxation." When we read these messages in our guest book it gives us so much joy to know others have enjoyed and loved our house as much as we do.

We are in a gated community which is a safe and fun place for kids to explore and bike ride. It includes a community pool with restrooms, tennis courts and a playground. The Isle Dauphine Golf Course is near by, as well as The Audubon Bird Sanctury. Kayak, bike and scooter rentals are available on The Island.

The main floor has a fully equipped kitchen ( we love to cook) with a dining area, large family room and a big deck with plenty of seating and a picnic table. Part of the deck is covered and part is in the sun! There are 3 bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths on this floor too.

The upper floor has 3 bedrooms, which includes a master suite. The master suite is the best! It has a full bath with a shower and a jacuzzi tub, and its own deck with incredible views. There are also 2 other bedrooms and one full bath.

Under the house there is an outside shower, fish cleaning station with sink, a sitting area and a gas grill. We have a big wagon to haul everything down to the beach, plus we have beach chairs, a kayak, and pool and beach toys. Driveway chalk is also down there!

Inside we have games, puzzles, cards, a few dvd's and lots of great books and magazines to read.

There are linens and towels for your convenience. Please bring your own beach towels.

Have great time on Dauphin Island and make a lot of great memories with your friends and famliy!

About Meg Moreland

We love Dauphin Island. It is peaceful and relaxing. We've had a house on DI for over 30 years. This is our 3rd house and we just started renting for the first time in the Spring of 2015. Our home is comfortable and we hope you make as many good memories as our family, of over 20, has made through the years. All of our children, grandchildren and their friends have had a lot of fun on Dauphin Island. Several have been baptized in local churches on The Island, because their parents love it here so much.

Why Meg Moreland chose Dauphin Island

As we said above, this is our 3rd house on "The Island" and it is our favorite house. We have been on the west end, in the middle and now we are on the east end and we are here to stay. We live in Mobile, so we are able to come down a lot and we love it! We are in a gated community with a community swimming pool, playground and tennis courts. It is a great place for children to ride bikes and explore. You can hear the waves clearly from the house, but the distance from the beach is great, so you do not have to worry about small children near the water when you are up at the house.

What makes this House unique

Dumbwaiter to send packages and groceries up to all floors. Fish cleaning station and outdoor shower. We have two refrigerators.

                                                                  Melissa O.

                                                                  The perfect house for a family vacation

                                                                  Marilyn N.

                                                                  Loved it!

                                                                  Shirley C.

                                                                  All of my family were there for some portion of the week. Wonderful, relaxing time together. The beach was great. The weather was great. Could not have asked for more. The house is very nice. Felt like home and grew to love it more each day. I couldn't believe how much was provided, even down to flashlights! Meg is wonderful! I truly wish I could rent from her each year, but my family likes to visit new places. Overall it was a blessing and privilege to rent the house and spend time with my family.

                                                                  Everything you need for a perfect vacation!

                                                                  Lynn B.-

                                                                  We rented this beach house for a late-summer trip with friends and had a wonderful time.

                                                                  The owners have left many things in the unit to make your stay more comfortable and enjoyable. There are many extras left in the kitchen (foil, ziplocs, dish soap, detergent, spices). This was a nice surprise (although if I had known, I would not have taken as many of these items). The bikes were nice- two bikes were in great shape and we enjoyed touring the island on them. The two new kayaks (?) have replaced the old kayak. The new ones are for folks under 150 lbs... and for the smaller folks were great!

                                                                  We loved looking at the water from the decks, the porch fans made it more possible to sit outside on hot days... the toys and chairs were much appreciated. The downstairs area with table, chairs and grill were also appreciated.

                                                                  The master bedroom was beautiful and spacious. We felt pampered!

                                                                  We would definitely recommend this home!

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Thank you for nice review. We are happy that y'all enjoyed your stay at our home on The Island. Thank you for taking great care of it, we really appreciate it.

                                                                  The bikes and kayaks are there for you to enjoy. We have them down there for our children and grandchildren, so we figured we would share them with guests.

                                                                  We don't leave ziplocs, foil and wrap. The last renters must have left those behind. Y'all lucked out :)! We do leave one roll of toilet paper for each bathroom and pump soap at the sinks, plus a bar of soap in each shower/tub. And we leave one roll of paper towel.We leave pods for one load of dishes and one for the washing machine. Otherwise, you do need to bring those with you for the rest of the week.

                                                                  Well kept. Clean and ready. It was perfect for our large family.

                                                                  Gail D.

                                                                  We had a blast here. The location to the beach was a plus for us. The house had pretty much all you need to have a great vacation stay..

                                                                  Owner's Response:
