About the property

6 Bedrooms, 4 1/2 Baths, Only 12 people allowed to stay in house.

Relax and enjoy yourselves at our beach house with a great private beach. We think it is the perfect beachfront house to get away from it all. Our house has 6 bedrooms and 4 1/2 baths with 2 decks. It is comfortable and we know you will feel right at home.

We just 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.

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 Alabama

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.

House located perfectly for ease of getting to and from beach.

  • 4 of 5

We had several family members including small children that had to have splinters pulled from their feet because decking has not been treated and sealed. It's very hard to constantly remind kids to wear their shoes on the deck.

Also, house did not cool off as well as we would have liked.

Owner's Response: I am so sorry about the deck. We are getting the entire deck replaced this week. We had not received any complaints about the deck or the air this summer. We came down for the 4th and realized you were right about the deck. We did not have any problems with the house cooling down, but we have the AC guys coming out anyway. If the doors are open too much it is hard to cool it down. I hope you enjoyed your stay otherwise.

The house and beach were even lovelier than the pictures. Owners responded quickly to any ?

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent time! We are a group of 3 families who came down for Spring Break with our teenagers. Plenty to do- the island is beautiful. The house had everything we could need. We would definitely come back! We made some wonderful memories here, thank you for sharing your pretty home.

Beautiful home just off the Gulf, very friendly homeowners. Wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

This is the first home we've rented and we were so thrilled! The home is beautiful and spacious. The kitchen is well stocked with nice appliances, many utensils, dinnerware and serving pieces. Each bedroom is decorated in fun colors and is so comfortable. We loved the wagon to haul chairs, toys & towels to the beach. I'm glad they provide beach towels so we didn't have to fly with those.

Not only is the house amazing, but the island is too. We stayed for a week with our 5 kids and could have stayed at least 2 with new adventures every day.

We are hoping to come to Dauphin Island again and definitely want to stay in this home!
