“Survivor” appropriately named for its ability to withstand a devastating hurricane has all the comforts of home and more! With five bedrooms and three baths this luxurious beach retreat easily sleeps 14 or 15 in its 2,880 ft. of living space! Survivor is perfect for a quiet family vacation, multi-family trips, and even has enough room for the in-laws!

Survivor is located directly ON THE WATER! The calm and relaxing Mississippi Sound is only footsteps away from the back of the house and the more active Gulf of Mexico just several hundred feet or about one minute from the front of the house. You really get the best of both worlds

with Survivor! The backyard beach is private and the Gulf beach is accessible with deeded access. Most prefer the backyard beach with its white sandy beaches, calm, cool, and shallow waters! It’s perfect for families with kids and is ideal for swimming and relaxing without having to worry about strong currents, waves, or rip tides. There is a small bait pond occasionally refreshed by the high tides ideal for catching bait! You can set up your chairs and umbrellas and not have to worry about hauling them in every night, it is private property remember! You can even beach a small boat or Jet Ski right in your own back yard! However if you are in the mood for more active water simply walk across the street to the Gulf side and boogie board, skim board, or body surf in the Gulf of Mexico’s mighty waves!

Survivor features a spacious living room with 12’ ceilings, flat screen TV, VCR/DVD,

surround sound, stereo system, and gas fireplace serves as the perfect place to entertain large crowds, view the remarkable sunset, or simply relax with the family. Finding somewhere to sit and eat won’t be a problem in Survivor, there is a custom built dining table that seats ten and bar seats four! Renters love the kitchen! Our fully loaded kitchen houses coffee maker, toaster, blender, microwave, oven, flat surface stove, assorted pots and pans, silver wear, walk in pantry, dishwasher, plates, cups, and many more!

Five spacious bedrooms serve as the perfect place to for crash for the night and lounge about in the morning.

The two master bedrooms have access to the upper deck perfect for watching the sunrise or set. Each upstairs bath has its own

coffee maker, no need to worry about waking up anyone downstairs!!! Jack and Jill bathrooms connect the four bedrooms upstairs, with an exquisite Jacuzzi on one side!

2,000 sq. ft. of deck space encompasses the back of the house. The decks are partially shaded for relaxing and lounging and the other part is ideal for sunning, viewing sunsets, grilling out, and tanning.

About Carol Haas

I currently live in Mobile, Al. I am a teacher and I have always loved the ocean! My whole family likes to fish and I could not think of a better place to do that besides Dauphin Island. Another one of my favorite things to do is walk down the beach and hear the waves in this peace and calm environment. Dauphin Island is a quiet, family beach and does not have a lot of loud partying going on. The houses are spread apart enough to remedy that situation.

I like living only forty minutes away so that I can use this spacious house when it is not rented. It is also convenient to take care of maintenance problems if they occur. Maybe one day when I retire I will be able to use my dream house more often. I have seen many couples start their marriage by renting this house for their ceremony. I tell them their marriage must survive since the name of the house is "Survivor"!

Carol Haas purchased this house in 2006

Why Carol Haas chose Alabama Gulf Coast

This property has two master bedrooms with Jack-n-Jill bathrooms to a queen bedroom and a queen and two twins bedroom. There is a bedroom downstairs with a daybed that has a trundle you can use as a double bed or two twins. The rooms are very spacious and you don't feel cramped. The den, dining and kitchen are very spacious also and equipped with the latest and greatest! There is a Safire grill(like a big green egg), for grilling. There is an outdoor cooker for boiling shrimp and crabs etc. The house has an ice machine for your fishing needs. There is plenty of deck space on Bay side and on Gulf side. I try to make people feel at home when they are on vacation and this house is" Home Away From Home"!

More than Survived it!

  • 5 of 5

The pics are exactly as the house looks in-person. No nasty surprises. It was a great set up for 2 familes; couldn't have asked for better. It's on a quiet street with an easy 5min walk to the beach. Also lots of fishing right from the dock.

Plenty of dishes, pots, pans, and pantry space. Tons of good bath towels, too!

Nicely done! Thanks!

Comfortable -- even for 10 people over three mostly indoor, rainy days

  • 5 of 5

Everyone said "wow" as soon as they walked in. So spacious. Plenty of room for all 10 of us to eat and share family experiences around the dining room table and then spread out in separate areas to watch football on TV, work on the house-provided puzzles, keep creating meals and snacks in the well-stocked kitchen. The fireplace was so cozy and warm when we could only look out on the decks at the pouring, wind-driven rain. Bedrooms and bathrooms were also spacious, comfortable and quiet. Owner, Carol Haas, is very responsive to questions, which I sent by multiple emails. I would rent this house again. Thanks, Carol!

So memorable!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful early Christmas at Survivor. The home accomodated our family of 10 perfectly. The grandkids enjoyed helping with food prep while sitting on the stools around the island. The dining table was perfect for our early Christmas dinner.. Room for all. The bedrooms were spacious and comfortable.

The fire pit was an added bonus.

Early mornings were perfect for walking and exploring on the bay beach or a short walk to the Gulf beach. Wonderful memories were made here and we are grateful!

Thank you for providing a lovely and affordable place for our family.

Perfect Long Weekend

  • 5 of 5

My family (well, most of them) came down to Dauphin Island for a long weekend to celebrate my graduation from the University of South Alabama. The booking process and communication with the owner was incredible and we were able to have any questions addressed quickly. The house is just beautiful and the layout was quite user friendly. Aside from a few cosmetic issues (which is to be expected with any house rented out to total strangers), the house was perfect. The beds were comfortable, the rooms spacious, everything worked, the water pressure was fine, and there were ample amenities such as dish towels, an ice machine, pots and pans, and towels. The view outside (front and back) was amazing. Our last night there, we took our wine out to the back porch (which is huge) and sat around the fire pit. It could not have been cozier. The island in the kitchen became puzzle headquarters but there was still plenty of space between the huge dining table and the ample counter space. My one recommendation would be to shower the night before departure to get a head start on the clean up for the next day. I have already started looking for any reason whatsoever to go back and stay there again. Truly relaxing!!!!! Thank you so much Carol and Ed for an awesome graduation weekend and family reunion.

Amazing time at Survivor!!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the Survivor for our wedding and family vacation in late August. We had 14 guests stay in the home and everyone was very comfortable and truly enjoyed the home. It was perfect to spend quality time with our family. We also had our wedding reception at the home and it was absolutely perfect!!! About 40 guests and we received a million compliments. We rented a tent for the back yard and it was just amazing!! The home was open and easy for entertaining (we actually had everyone over several times for dinner, rehearsal dinner etc, other than the actual reception). The deck was amazing for entertaining too. Most of our time was spent out on the back deck enjoying the sunsets in the evenings and many cups of coffee in the mornings. Carol and Ed were very easy to work with and they even called to check in on us while we were there. Storage room was stocked with tons of beach toys for the kids!!! New ice machine was installed during our stay and that came in very handy. Everything we needed was already there!!! Survivor was the stay of a lifetime and we will definitely be back!!!
