Grace Like Rain is the BEST!

  • 5 of 5
This is our third year renting this house and we love it! The house is spacious with lot's of seating in the living room and dining area. It is situated right on the water and you have a constant view of the water with so many windows in the house. There is a large deck that includes a pool facing the ocean. There are several Adirondack chairs to sit in and watch the dolphins move in and out of the water.

I have never stayed in a rental with a better equipped kitchen! They have EVERYTHING you will ever need instead of the standard dishes you find in most rentals. They have a crock pot, a blender, wine openers, platters, bowls, bakeware, and everything else you can think of which makes it easy to make and serve large meals for a crowd. It seems like everyone that stays there leaves a little something behind spices, aluminum foil, hand soap, birthday candles...etc so that there are lots of things for others to use. We do the same things and try to leave it a little better than we find it. They also have a gas grill on the deck that we always use to grill fresh shrimp that we purchase at Skinners.

The house is very clean and nicely decorated. They have plenty of regular and beach towels and a nice washer and dryer. There are lots of beach toys available for the kids to play with so we literally bring nothing with us except for the clothing we need. There are even books to read, some games, crayons and puzzles for rainy days. We always rent sturdy beach lounge chairs from Chase n' Rays on the island and they deliver them right to the beach.

The house has wireless and a nice sound system hook up. I really can't say enough nice things about this house. We think of it as our home away from home and we hope to go back for years to come! The owners are wonderful to work with and even though I have never met them, they seem like friends. When we visited last year, there was a hurricane coming our way. They were in constant contact with us and made sure our needs were discussed and luckily it was down graded to a tropical storm and we rode it out. It put my family at ease that the owners cared and were available for us to figure out what we should do. This house is excellent in every way!

Beach Wedding

  • 5 of 5
We held our wedding here in April 2014 it was great. We even had to have the reception inside/on the deck due to the wind tearing up tents and there was plenty of room for guests to get there food and mingle. The owner was great to deal with. Will be staying again!

Perfect Beach House!

  • 5 of 5
A group of 12 enjoyed this house for five days. The pictures do not do it justice! The house is beautiful, well maintained and tastefully decorated. The kitchen is stocked better than my own. Plenty of bath and beach towels, linens and extra bedding. Beach chairs and toys were all there, too! The view from the deck was amazing and only about 50 steps to the water's edge. Plenty of space for everyone. I would highly recommend this house to anyone, especially ones with a large group! We will be back next year!

Sibling vacation

  • 5 of 5
Last fall my brothers and sister and I decided we needed to reconnect as a family. Dauphin Island was recommended a relaxing spot for our vacation. We found your home on the internet and loved that it was directly on the beach. Upon arrival we found, as beautiful as the house appears on the internet, it was even more so in actuality. Your home is spacious, well decorated, and well maintained. The atmosphere is one of a home not a vacation rental house. We were surprised at how well stocked the kitchen was, from tools to pans to aluminum foil. There were plenty of towels with soap stocked in the bathrooms. The washer and dryer was very useful as well. We were all sad when our time in your home came to an end. I am hoping to use your home again next year and bring my children and grandchildren with me. Thank you very much for allowing us to use your home.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review on Grace Like Rain. We are happy that you had a memorable time and do hope you return. We pledge to make sure that the ones who work in the kitchen have what they need. It is pretty frustrating to try to cook a certain thing and find yourself in a jam because there is not a variety of options in cookware. It never made scents to us why you would have 8 of plates forks etc... We vacation there too, Thanks for your confidence!

Wonderful Vacation Home for the Family

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this beautiful,spacious home for our summer family vacation. It was perfect! We had our 8 and 11 year old children with us and they were always entertained. The house included everything needed for playing at the beach. The pool was great to have while the adults were up at the house relaxing. We cooked out on the grill several nights while we were there and enjoyed family time on the covered porch with a beautiful view of the ocean. The house was very clean and equipped with everything we needed. I would definitely recommend staying at this location.

Perfect house for multiple families!

  • 5 of 5
As good as the reviews were for this house they did not do it justice! Fabulous, spacious, clean, superb attention to detail. We had 7 adults and 6 kids from 6 months to 10 years old. The house is set up to give privacy if you want it, and plenty of room for together time when you want that. There is an abundance of cooking utensils, we cooked all of our meals there except one and never were in want of anything. The covered deck always provided plenty of shade no matter what time of day. The kids loved the pool! Plenty of towels, plus large washer and dryer to keep them fresh. You will have the beach pretty much to yourself, we saw people but never felt crowded. Everyone had a great time and we were all very comfortable. Richard was great to work with, he has made arrival and departure extremely easy, he answered all my questions, most before I ever asked them. Thank you for a great experience!!!

Owner's Response: Thanks Paul for the positive review, as my wife said this morning when I read the review to her “We try to make it for you like we like it for us”. We went down last week to check on things and spent about 12 man hours just "fixin and straightnin”. The pool gate wasn’t closing properly and things like that. Some issues have to wait till winter, when I get to enjoy it, just kidding but we are having good success from our work. Thank you and your families for coming to Dauphin Island and staying at our Grace Like Rain beach home. We have been so blessed by stories and pictures we get from our clients. We enjoy the work we do there because we know the home is blessing others. Have a great year and come back again!

Sincerely,
Richard and Gloria
