Looking for a quiet and family friendly beach vacation rental?

Look no further! SURVIVOR HAS IT ALL!!!!

“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 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 boasts a GREAT kitchen, plenty of space to relax, 2,000 ft. of enormous deck space, beautiful sunsets, and a large private beach to enjoy! This is a great house for having weddings!!

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 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 wetland pond occasionally refreshed by the high tides ideal for catching bait! 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's, DVD's, 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. Upstairs bedrooms are equipped with deluxe bedding, large walk in closets, TV, and plenty of space to blow up an airbed or set up a cot! 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 inside 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. Partially shaded deck features a large outside dining table perfect for eating dinner outside. Back decks feature lounge chairs, fire pit, and gas grills!

Downstairs features a storage room perfect for storing sand toys and beach chairs, umbrellas, and ice chests. Ice machine located in the storage room, along with tiki torches, hammocks, and assorted beach toys! Outdoor shower located underneath the house ideal for washing off sandy feet! Boardwalk leads from outdoor shower to back stairs. Comfy wood swing is also located downstairs! Parking for cars under the shade of the house.

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 Dauphin Island

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"!

Wonderful!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time staying the the Survivor. We had 8 adults and 6 kids and not once did we feel cramped. It felt like anything that we needed was already at the house, from cooking utensils, to board games, and even beach toys. I would suggest to take your own bedding. We took our bedding because it would be hard to wash that many sets of bedding before a 10am departure. Overall, it was a great experience!

Wonderful Home for a Large Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had several families stay at The Survivor home and loved the house and Dauphin Island! It was perfectly accommodating and was very spacious. The seating was plentiful and so were the abundance of towels, linens, and cooking utensils. There were several coffee makers there, including a Keurig. We loved the fire pit in the evening to go with the gorgeous sunsets. The massive porch space was also very nice. The rooms were very good with blocking out sound and we also loved the ice maker and beach toys to use. Carol, the owner was super responsive and friendly. The only thing I would mention to change would be where you are asked to wash and fold your sheets before leaving. This was hard to do with a 10 am check out time and kids in tow. Other than that, we would highly recommend The Survivor home to everyone! Thank you again for the wonderful memories!

Owner's Response: Hi, I have already changed the rule about washing and drying the sheets of the morning you leave. We do ask that you keep up with the towels and washcloths during your stay. Since it is a big house and up to 14 guest the cleaning crew does not have time to wash all the linens during the cleaning period. We do realize it is hard to get packed and depart by 10:00 a.m. so the cleaning crew will take care of the sheets for the bedding. We hope that you will enjoy your Dauphin Island vacation! Carol

Great house, great location, great owner. What more can I say?

  • 5 of 5

The house is spacious and in good shape. Great deck on the back. It is located on the bay side but is an easy walk (maybe 150 yards) to the beach. The owner (Carol) is most helpful and is a prompt communicator. We look forward to staying there again in the future.

Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

With a large group of 14, it was the PERFECT house for us! The location was great, with it's own "backyard" and place to hang out. In addition, Carol does an AWESOME job of having amenities and making sure that everything is prepared and beautifully done. Would definitely recommend staying here and hope to come back one day!

Owner's Response: I am glad you all had a great time! Everyone needs to just get away and relax and concentrate on how beautiful nature is and this is the place to do just that. I would love every guest to be able to sit back and enjoy! That is what a vacation is all about!

Thank you for a perfect Thanksgiving getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Survivor. Everything we needed was easily accessible. The home was clean and well situated on the beach and inside, too. Plus, the holiday week provided the perfect quiet, relaxing setting for our family.

Thanks so much again!

A Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family vacation happened to be the week after Hurricane Nate and we still had a wonderful time. Even though sand was piled high on both sides of road and we had to have a pass to enter the West Beach, we still enjoyed the beaches. The Haas family was very hospitable, making sure we had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The house is large with plenty of room for the children to play. The grill and fish fryer were put to use. We prepared our first ever Low Country Shrimp Boil. Our family had a great time. We will definitely be back.
