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.

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"!

Wanted to let you know the bath tub on the west side of the house was very slow. It would hardly drain.

Otherwise the house was perfect!

Spacious enough for a big family

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week at Survivor with the family (11 in total). From my parents down to the grandkids. The owners answered any questions I had in a timely manner and were there to make our stay awesome. We loved spending time on the beach playing in the water and fishing. The decks on the back of the house were perfect for hanging out and taking in the great views. The kids loved having their own room and playing hide and seek in the big house. We all fit around the large dinning table to enjoy dinner together. All in all, it was a great time. For the accommodations and price, you can't go wrong with Survivor.

Nicest, Period

  • 5 of 5

In my opinion you can't do better than Survivor. Its big, close to the water, modern and clean. The owners (Carol) are perfect and dedicated. Three of us spent four days and can't wait to come back. Fishing in the back yard was awesome as was the sun and sand. The house is spacious, well appointed, completely operational and very clean. The entire experience was much more than we expected. Carol has thought of, and provided, everything... We really over-packed not knowing what to expect. Don't hestitate on this property, you can't go wrong. JC

Wonderful Dauphin Island Getaway.

  • 5 of 5

We loved Survivor. We had 3 families and 11 people and we were all able to spread out and have plenty of space. The decks were wonderful. I especially liked that the upper deck on the first floor was raised to have no obstruction of the beautiful panoramic view of the sound. We spent hours watching the birds and the sunsets. The children loved the hermit crabs in the sound. It was also just a short walk to the gulf side for the bigger waves. The house had lots of linens and a fully stocked kitchen. We will be back next year!

Would definitely recommend!!!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for us and had everything we needed to enjoy our stay! All of the beach equipment and sand toys were really nice to have so we didn't have to bring our own or buy new. The kitchen was also well stocked with anything you would need (minus the food of course). Carol was really easy to work with and answered all the questions I had for them! We will definitely be coming back!

Great for a family reunion!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this large beach house for our family reunion this summer! It has 5 bedrooms (most have a large closet with it's own AC vent- large enough to sleep a child in a pack n play), 3 bathrooms and a wonderful spacious living/dining/kitchen area. The back deck is great as well! We enjoyed visiting the bay behind the house, and also walking across the street to swim in the ocean. We also enjoyed fishing in the bay, the small pond on the property, and the ocean. The sunrises and sunsets are spectacular. We really enjoyed the wonderful local places to eat (Pirates Pleasure (breakfast & lunch), Island Rainbow (icecream and pizza), Miguels Baja (tacos), Billy Goats concessions, Skinners Seafood (for fresh steamed shrimp, sausage, potatoes & corn), and Lighthouse bakery (for donuts/pastries). We also enjoyed several of the things to do on the Island: Dolphin boat tour, the Estuarium (aquarium), local playground park, Ft Gaines, and local shopping. Ship n shore has lots of groceries and household items you may need! We had an amazing week! We will definitely be coming back!
