About Beth Durrett
We live in Madison, MS and purchased the home at Dauphin Island so we could spend time with family in Mobile. Spent summers at the island as a child and have always loved the laid back atmosphere, friendly people and beautiful beaches.
Beth Durrett purchased this House in 2000

Best equipped house we have ever stayed in!
Considering the pool wasn't open til our last day and none of the parks or attractions were open due to Covid-19, we still enjoyed our stay. Wonderfully equipped kitchen, children's areas, and every convenience! The outside areas were wonderful including a huge sandbox for the kids, lots of lounging chairs, screened in porch and swings. Close to the beach and pool and bikes are a lot of fun in this area. You truly do not have to bring anything to this house but yourself and food. Thanks for having us !
FULLY STOCKED Resort style vacation
The Porches is a great property, we really enjoyed our stay. Everything we could need is at the house -- beach chairs, carts, umbrellas, coolers, boogie boards, beach toys, everything! Beth was very responsive and helpful. I highly recommend this house
Great summer getaway
Loved The Porches, lots of room inside an out. We had 6 adults and 4 kids plenty of room. Well stocked kitchen. The grill was a great we used it several times. We all enjoyed the beach and the pool very family friendly resort.
Very relaxing vacation - we will be back and hope The porches will be available next year.
Family vacation was fun.
Easy rental. Other than not right on the beach, the location was good. Could use some repair work in a few areas. This was reported directly to the owner who assured the repairs would be done for next guest.
We had a great stay at the Porches. The Porches had everything we needed so that my family could enjoy our stay. We loved the porches and spent every morning there before we started our day. We had one injury while there and I would caution people on the back stairs as they are steep and should not be used by any one with walking issues or young children. Still could not have enjoyed our stay more.
Soo glad you enjoyed your stay!! Sooo sorry the stairs were an issue!! Really hope it wasn’t serious!!! They are a bit steep for sure but have never had any injuries on them, so sorry y’all did!!!
