Neat, peaceful, well maintained.

  • 5 of 5
This little house is perfect for a couple, or small family, to have a peaceful, stay on Dauphin Island. The house actually reminded me of a renovated version of the home my grandmother and grandfather lived in back in the 50's. However, that's a good thing. Robert and Patricia have the place very modernized, well decorated, with all the modern conveniences of any condo on the market. The house is just a block from the main highway through Dauphin Island. However, it is extremely quiet and peaceful. There are bicycles available, although we didn't have a need for them. The ferry is close, the restaurants on the island are close, Fort Gaines is close, the airport is close, the public beach is close. Everything is close to Sandy Hook. Robert and Patricia were very easy to deal with, renting the home, and Robert has all the background on the home, the area, and the island, and was nice enough to give us a history lesson upon our arrival. I would definitely stay at Sandy Hook, again.

Relaxation!

  • 5 of 5
We arrived at 4am with ease. The porch was great for coffee time and watching the kids ride the bikes that were provided. The house was put together perfect for us 5. Enough space to move around, cook and space to sleep! We made majority of our meals at home and enjoyed the island relaxing! The guests I brought, had a great time in and outside of this home. It was their first time and they'd love to come back again! Everything was provided in the kitchen, large unique bathroom, laundry room and extra tv room for the kids was awesome and sit down meals together was awesome!
Great location with shade and short walks to the grocery store, shops and bakery was an absolute plus! We'll be back to stay here again!

Cozy and clean!

I rented this cottage for my daughter, a US Army Sgt, and her friend. They loved it and want to rent it again. The cottage is decorated beautifully and has been stocked generously to welcome each guest. The key was available and there was not one single need not provided. We felt like our friend from Maryland received a true Southern welcome in this delightful cottage.

This place was amazing. There was plenty of room in the home! The owner even took us on a boat ride around the island and gave us some history on the island! The home was very clean and is located sort of in the center of the island. They had bikes that we could ride and everything is very accessible from the home. The only thing we had an issue with was the wifi but who cares! It was well worth it. We made some great memories with our child's first time to the beach in this home! We will stay there again and would reccomend it to our friends!

Didn't want to leave!!

Didn't want to leave!!

We absolutely enjoyed our stay at Sandy Hook. The weather was perfect while there, the location of the cottage was easy to find and the property was nicely remodeled. Our kids didn't want to leave and were begging to stay longer. If it hadn't been booked for the next few days, we would have considered staying longer. In fact, every time we get in the car now, my 2 year old hollers "To the beach house!!!" Robert was very helpful and willing to do anything to make our stay as comfortable as possible. When I asked about what laundry detergent was used for linens (due to allergies), they were willing to use whatever brand needed to prevent an allergic reaction. We will definitely keep Sandy Hook at the top on our vacation list for this area of the country!
Thanks for making this stay so enjoyable!

Enjoyable stay at Sandy Hook

  • 4 of 5
We very much enjoyed staying at Sandy Hook. The house was very clean and the towels and sheets nice and plush. The kitchen was well stocked. We enjoyed riding the bikes around the island. The weather was pretty cool while we were there so didn't get to use the nice porch very often but it is very inviting. Robert was attentive and replaced the DVD player when we reported to him that there was no remote for the DVD. I did detect a mold smell in the living room only which sort of bothered me. My husband didn't smell it but I'm more sensitive. I reported this to Robert so he can look into it. I would certainly stay at Sandy Hook if ever on the Island again.

Dauphin Island is a barrier island located three miles south of the mouth of Mobile Bay in the Gulf of Mexico. Entry to the island is made by crossing a three mile long high rise bridge which was opened in July, 1982 after the original draw bridge was destroyed by Hurricane Frederic in 1979. An automobile ferry from the eastern shore also offers an entry point on the eastern end of the island. The island is approximately 14 miles long and 1 ¾ miles wide at the widest point. The eastern six miles are inhabited while the western 8 miles are undeveloped and privately owned. It is estimated that 1300 permanent residents call Dauphin Island home. The number of residents soars during vacation and holiday times. The entire island has been designated as a bird sanctuary and thousands of visitors come to experience the annual migrations.

You're able to walk to most activities and bicycle riding gets you to the places that walking doesn't. Three of the islands 5 restaurants are walking distance. The beaches are accessible via bicycle, short car ride, or the town's public transportation (two minivans). The cottage is one block in one direction and 1/2 block in the other direction from the bicycle path. The path is a separately paved trail that runs nearly the entire length of the Island. There is a large bird sanctuary that provides excellent walking paths - you'll see beach, forest and swamp on the walk. We love to go there. There is also a small forested bird watching area that we like to walk through as well (an old Indian mound). The Estuarium is also great. They often have fun classes as well as a great tour through their fish/sea life exhibits.
