We rented this house for a week in July and were very pleased! There ended up being 16 of us in the house, 6 adults and 10 kids ranging from 8-17, but we still had plenty of room. We brought 2 blow up mattresses, however there were some already there so it wasn't necessary. Anything you could possibly want or need was provided. The house is very spacious and open, so we never felt crowded when eating meals either. The decks are huge and have a lot of seating for relaxing and enjoying the views. Our children preferred the Gulf side over the Sound side for swimming, so we made a lot of trips across the street. Thankfully, the house also had awnings to set up on the beach for shade so we could stay all day but still get some relief from the sun. The biggest pain is pulling the wagon through the sand with all the beach stuff, but totally worth it. Both the kids and adults had a wonderful time! Thanks, Carol!

We chose this house for our family vacation. We had 7 adults and 5 children ages 9 months to 8 years old. The location was wonderful we could go across the street to the gulf side for bigger waves but the kids really enjoyed just playing in the water on the Mississippi Sound which was easily accessible from our back deck. They spent a lot of time catching hermit crabs which they truly enjoyed. We took one day and went to Gulf Shores via the Ferry stopped at Lulu's which had a lot for the kids to do plus they loved the ferry ride across the bay. We also took a day and went to Louisiana for a gator tour and then to New Orleans for dinner. The rest of the time was spent on the Island playing in the sand. We did visit Fort Gaines and the aquarium on the island which were both very enjoyable. We were able to build a bonfire on the beach and make smores. It was a wonderful vacation. I would highly recommend this house. It is furnished beautifully and has everything you need. Lots of beach toys, high chair, pack n play, games plenty of things to do. Thank you Carol we had a wonderful time!!!!!

Fun in the Sun

  • 5 of 5
We selected "The Survivor" beach house for our family reunion and were very happy we did. We had 8 adults and 4 grandchildren in our party and the accommodations worked out beautifully. I was impressed with the location, the cleanliness of the house, all the amenities, and the stocked kitchen utensils, pots, pans, and dishware. We really felt right at home with the decor of the beach house... as a lot of the furnishings at the beach house, we have in our very own home. We had a well planned list of activities on our to do list while we were there and were able to enjoy all the sights and scenes both the Island and main land had to offer. We were 5 minutes from the ferry and made several trips to the mainland where we were able to enjoy that side of the beach also for fun and dining like Lulu's, the Oyster house, the Shrimp basket, and Lambert's. Carol and Ed Haas were very accommodating and easy to work with when I booked their house and would recommend both the house and the Carol and Ed if your looking for a great experience at the beach.

Owner's Response: Ron and family,
Thank you for taking good care of my house! It is people like you that take responsibility and let me know if things are not working right. You taking care of my house helps me keep the cost from going up every year. I try to be reasonable and keep the price affordable for that size house. Thank you for leaving the house so neat and clean and I am glad you enjoyed both sides of the beach!

2-Family Spring Break

  • 4 of 5
Very spacious house for 10 of us - everybody had enough personal space. The large dining room table was very nice for family dinners. We could play in the waves on the Gulf side but the water was too cold for swimming, but it was warm enough to sit out in the sun when it came out. Unfortunately we had a lot of stormy weather while we were there, but still had fun exploring the Sea Lab, Fort Gaines, the Audubon Sanctuary, and walking the beach for shells. We also went to Mobile for an afternoon and toured the USS Alabama - a big hit. We went to New Orleans for a fun day trip (only a 2 hour drive). NOTICE: if you're coming for spring break, be aware that the West End Beach is only open on weekends. There were very few people on the island while we were there, we had the East End Beach nearly to ourselves.

The Best of Family Time in the Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5
We, meaning my family, love to visit this beach house. We have been here twice and hope to return soon, maybe for a longer time next visit. The property is wonderful and well maintained, but the pictures do not do it justice as the back deck has been expanded - and how do you show the gorgeous sunsets without being there! The owners are very helpful and just nice people. I would recommend this property, and have, to friends.
There is so much nearby to see and do - for children and adults. On the island we like the Estuarium, Fort Gaines, and the ocean on both sides - Gulf and Bay. In Mobile, we like the Battleship Park and Museum. This time we took the ferry to Gulf Shores for fun shopping and great food. If you like to drive, there is a wonderful Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola. I'm sure there is much more but we just love to relax and sun. We also went to a Gator Farm in Mississippi and rode the air boat.
We like to cook our own food mostly - and highly recommend the fresh seafood market on the island.
As a Grammy, for me, the best thing about Survivor is that I have all the people I love around me in the same house. We all have our own space, and it is easy to supervise the young ones because of the back deck. We can fly kites or see the lovely white morning glories on the beach, put together a 1,000 piece puzzle, or pick up sea shells. We talk, laugh, make plans, take pictures, and leave the "real" world behind.

Awesome vacation!

  • 5 of 5
Our family, three generations (13 people) stayed here and absolutely loved it! I don't know of a better location for a vacation. The house is easy to navigate and very roomy. Two 3 year olds knew their way around and up and down in just a little while. Everything you could possibly need is in the house or in the storage area, even beach toys and a wagon for transporting them back and forth. The upstairs coffee pot got a good workout while we were there. Very thoughtful.
My favorite place was on the swing under the deck with my two young granddaughters playing in the sand nearby. Oh, the conversations those two had! The breeze and the shade were just right after many hours on the beach.
For a family vacation you can't go wrong staying here. Everything is comfortable and we felt very much at home. I hope to be able to visit again.
Thank you for sharing your house with us :)
