Overview

About the property

Beautiful 3 Bedroom, 2 full bathroom+outdoor shower, sleeping 8

Whether Beach Walking or Birdwatching is your preference, you will find that 'Above and Below' is the perfect destination on Dauphin Island. This home is centrally located on Bienville Boulevard, across the street from the Public Beaches and Pier.

The property is set back in the woods, with a screened-in porch and outdoor ceiling fans, allowing for enjoyable, insect-free birdwatching. You will be within walking distance to local restaurants, however, preparing your own fresh daily catch in our fully stocked kitchen may be your choice. Perhaps you'll want to charter a deep sea fishing trip. The Dauphin Island Country Club is open to the public for golfing, canoe rentals, and beachside swimming pool . History and Nature are yours on this non-commercialized, earth-friendly island.

For a day get-away, you can travel less than one hour to Mississippi casinos, take a 45 minute Ferry to Gulf Shores, 30 min. to Mobile, and 2 hours to New Orleans!

Pets welcome during off season, October through March

Cozy house.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a month at this cozy house near the beach and trully enjoyed the house and the area. The house is near the beach, about 15 minutes walk to the water, which we enjoyed walking to daily. The beach is pet friendly and was not crowed in the winter months.

This house is very comfortable with a fairly well stocked kitchen. The house is very nicely decorated, and comfortable. It is located off of the main road, where there is a consistent flow of traffic. Overall, its a great place to stay, we enjoyed our stay and teh owner was very responsive. Thanks for the hospitality!

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

My family with 2 small kids stayed for a week. We had a great time! The rental property was just what we needed. It was in a great spot just a short drive to great public beaches. You can walk to shops and restaurants. Thanks again!

Abdolutely Wonderful!!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this beach house the past two years and it is wonderful! Nice open floor plan and just a couple minutes from the beach! It's nestled in the trees so you don't see any close neighbors and has a very relaxing secluded feel. The screened in front porch is wonderful, and also has a private outside shower in the back for washing off sand. The owners are very nice and helpful and everything has been easy and simple both times we have stayed here. I highly recommend this beach house!

Dauphon Island Stay

  • 1 of 5

There were several issues with the location where we stayed. It claimed to be right across the street for the beach but it was a very long walk to actually get to the water. Secondly we killed so many bugs in this place it was disgusting. There were roaches and palmetto bugs all over the condo and they kept showing up. Someone needs to really spray that place. No one said anything about needing a permit to go to other beaches which was also the case. My family had to go to the police station to get a permit to park at another beach because the beach "right across the street" was such a long walk.

Owner's Response: We are surprised and disappointed to hear that your stay at our home was not to your liking, and want to address your comments and hope others will also understand. Our house is situated back within the woods on the island, and bugs do appear from time to time. In the case of this particular week, nature produced several big storms and it appears that these bugs wanted to take shelter. We have an amazing emergency contact family that is always available to address any issues such as this, and as stated in our contract, all our guests have to do is place a call and the problem will be solved. We do regularly spray for bugs, but if there’s an issue, rest assured it will be corrected. Dauphin Island’s shoreline is constantly shifting, and distance to the shore is indeed a bit of a walk this year, we’ll modify the distance that is stated on our home description, but as you can see by other guest reviews, we rarely have guests that complain about this walk – it’s really a matter preference of wanting privacy and shade when not at the beach vs. being on the water and in the sun throughout the day. This year, Dauphin Island added public parking areas on the island; some of these spaces are open parking, and others require a permit and are marked as such. This is another great option for island guests that want quick access to the beach and the ability to throw all their gear into the trunk and drive a short distance. Of course the requirement for permits or paying for public parking is dictated by the Island government, not by the individual owners of the properties. I wasn’t aware that weekly guests could obtain permits, but it’s good to know because it sounds like all guests have to do is take your contract to the police department and they’ll issue a pass for the week. Hope this helps with any concerns others may have regarding our property.
