Overview

Dauphin Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

This house sits on an extra large gulf front lot with plenty of sugar white sandy beach to enjoy.

Combined with 2 (currently empty) lots to either side of this home, you will enjoy an ocean view literally the size of a football field!

Because our lot has such a large beach, we have installed a volleyball court with rope boundaries and a shuffleboard court for our guests to enjoy. We have also provided chaise lounge chairs (8) and 9 ft. wooden umbrellas (4)for use on the beach.

Everything you need is right here!

Our home consists of a master bedroom with a king-sized bed and private bath. A second bedroom contains a queen-sized bed while a third bedroom contains 2 twin-sized beds. Additionally, there is a sleeper-sofa in the main living area.

A wrap-around balcony with plenty of seating allows everyone to enjoy the amazing views of the Gulf of Mexico.

The property is locally managed, so any needs that might come up during your stay is just a phone call away.

We know that you will enjoy our new beach home as much as we do!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Mary & Scott,



What an awesome time! Thank you so much for sharing your home with us. We loved relaxing on the beach and the deck. Your home offers so much, & we felt completely at home. From watching the dolphins in the surf to barbequing and shuffleboard, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. All of the little details like wifi and a terrifically stocked kitchen made our experience perfect. You do a great job on how how you manage things here. We look forward to a future visit. So sad to leave today. Thanks again.



P.S. Capt Mike's Deep Sea fishing & Skinners Seafood were both amazing!!

Wonderful Get Away

  • 5 of 5

Truly Enjoyed our stay at Sunny Pit! The house is right on the beach, set well apart from the neighboring homes, quiet and private. It was clean and comfy and had all of the things we needed, very well equipped. The sound of the water was so very relaxing. The covered deck was awesome. The owners graciously answered all of our questions pre-trip through the Facebook page so we knew exactly what we needed to pack . It was very difficult to leave. We would love to return! (Linen service was well worth the cost.)

Great Vacation at Sunny Pitt

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from a four day stay at Sunny Pit. This was our first time taking our kids to the beach. They loved it! Sunny Pit is in a perfect location. Right off the road and just a short, short walk down to the water. We loved the shuffleboard and volleyball net/court. I liked the large wrap porch and the table/chairs on the porch. We ate a few meals outside. The house was well stocked. It was easy to prepare meals. I loved the bookshelf full of books, movies, and games. That was a pleasant surprise. Everything was very clean. We had 6 people in all that stayed at Sunny Pit (4 adults and two children). It was the perfect size and space. We loved getting up every morning before sunrise to take walks. We utilized the lounge chairs and umbrellas for the beach. The way the house was decorated was nice too. Thank you for making our vacation so nice and relaxing!

Great location, comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We loved Sunny Pit! The location is perfect - not too close or too far from the water. The house is clean, comfortable, and provided everything in the kitchen that our eat-in crew wanted. Wish I had known you had a Keurig, but I'll be bringing my K-cups next time! And there will be a next time; I have already booked it! Our dogs loved it too. They loved the large deck where they could watch the birds. We loved the fact that bringing our furry family members was easy to include in our vacation. See you again soon!

We thoroughly enjoyed your home the past week. The covered deck is great to take a break from the sun, and still be able to enjoy the gulf. Also ejoyed playing shuffleboard, great family game and the large sandy beach. Hope our schedules work to rent next year. :)
