Overview

About the property

6 Bedrooms, 4 1/2 Baths, Sleeps 16, Upper and Lower Decks, New Appliances

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.

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!

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.

Privacy, Peacefulness, Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed this wonderful beach home. Everything needed was in this great home. Everything to prepare leisurely meals, late morning breakfasts, or midnight snacks was at your fingertips. I actually loved the fact that the places to go to and restaurants to eat at, were limited on this great island because I came here to get away from the "going" and "doing" that we left behind at home. I savored just enjoying "doing nothing except what I wanted to do" and "when I wanted to do it…or not do it". I came to completely get away from my usual routine, and this home and it's location offered exactly that. …If you're looking for a place that's full of 'busyness' , this is not your place. If you're looking for a place where you can read, paint, nap, walk your private beach, enjoy morning coffee on the porch with a beautiful breeze to kiss your mornings, then this is your place. We will be returning to be captured by this place again…to get away from it all…to truly 'live life to its fullest' in the way it was meant to live.

Perfect family time

  • 5 of 5

The home is situated in a gated community. The house is 100 steps from the owner's private beach area. The house is perfect for the family get away. Some of the family that stayed would go to bed early, others would stay up later. You could not hear the tv on the first floor if you slept on the second floor. Very sound house! There were plenty of magazines and books to read, lots of channels on the tv to watch. Having two refrigerators came in handy for all the guests to enjoy their favorite foods. The balconies were great in the morning and evening to just sit and listen to the waves and birds. The beds were super comfy. If you are looking for a place to stay that does not have the hustle and bustle, the traffic, the amount of visitors that Gulf Shores or Orange Beach has, yet still has the beautiful white sands of the beach, this would be it!
