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

Perfect Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We could not have asked for a more beautiful beach house or Gulf views. Everything we read in the reviews is true. Loved the privacy inside the house and outside and with 8 adults and 3 children we appreciated the expansive decks, pool and beach. Since we have professional chefs in the family we chose to cook all meals in the house -- the kitchen has everything you need and more! We all agree we can't wait to return.

Perfect Family Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5
This was our 2nd time staying at "Grace Like Rain" for our annual family vacation. It again was perfect for all of us.. my husband and I with our grown children and their young families. The home is big and comfortable, perfect set up, plenty of beach area all to ourselves, and the pool is an added touch. Our plan is to spend a week next summer there once again! Beautiful Place!

great house

  • 5 of 5
This house is great! It was big enough for my whole family of 16. There is plenty of seating whether you are eating, relaxing watching TV or on the deck. The pool was awesome for the smaller children. It was heated also. The owner is really nice and attentive and the house was very clean! No beach toys are needed or chairs. This house has about everything you need. I would love to stay again sometime.

Owner's Response: Thank You for your review. We also thank our clients for leaving their beach toys. The box gets full to overflowing so we have to reorganize it occasionally but it has made a nice entity for the children. We go to the house between clients' stays and check for maintenance and so forth and find that 99% of you are taking good care of our home. It is the only home we manage as a rental so that we can give full attention to detail. We believe that our clients are spending a lot of money entrusting their vacation to us and try not to have anything negative about their stay. Thanks again to you all for your visits to "Grace Like Rain".
