About Owner/Property Manager

As of 10/15/2014 I have turned over the management of 'Our Beach House' to ACP Real Estate. I am familiar with them and choose them over the other real estate businesses on the Island because of their great reputation and my personal experience with them. I know they will keep 'Our Beach House' to the standard my guests have come to expect.

a great stay at the beach

  • 5 of 5

We recently came down for a short fall break beach trip. The house was a great fit for our family of 4 plus my mom and uncle. I really liked that two of the three bedrooms had 2 beds which permitted a variety of sleeping arrangements. The main room of the house is spacious and opens onto the deck, and we spent most of our time at the house split between the deck and living/dining room. In the mornings the kids would go down and play in the little sand "yard" that is visible from the deck, before we all went down to the beach.

There is a short walk past 2 other houses to the beach, maybe 50 yards or so. Short enough that we made the trip several times a day. The beach is private and so you don't have to be as paranoid about leaving things if you want to go back inside for meals. This was nice for us as our only previous trip to the gulf was Destin, Florida, which is much more crowded. That said, those 2 houses do obstruct a majority of the direct view of the beach from the house; this wasn't a big issue for us.

There is a LOT of sea life in the water here. That combined with the cooler temperatures of early October meant that we did not swim per se, more like heavily involved wading. There were a decent number of dead moon jellyfish on the shore and tumbling in the shallow surf, but manageable. The kids played in the surf just fine and no one got stung. We also saw many varieties of fish and a few small sharks.

We cooked almost all of our meals in the kitchen, having brought a decent amount of food with us in a cooler, and picking up a few odds and ends at the island's "Ship and Shore" mini mart. Everyone told us "there's nothing on the island so come prepared" but honestly I found this not to be the case, we went looking for Worchester sauce at the store and found it, so, there you have it. The kitchen in the house is EXTREMELY well stocked with everything you need to make all your meals, not just dishes and basic pans - lots of bakeware, small appliances like a waffle iron and a hot plate, mixing bowls, etc.

We really enjoyed everything about this trip and will definitely return to Dauphin Island. We liked it much, much better than Destin!

Close to the beach!

  • 3 of 5

The proximity to the beach is the highlight of this property! Step outside, walk across a dune, and you're there! This was our first beach trip so I don't have much to compare it too but.....though the house was well stocked it was shabby. The couches are stained and smell, our pillowcases were stained, the plumbing was backed up so we had to plunge a tub and a toilet, the ice maker stopped working, and water poured in under the door when it rained. Not sure we'll pick this one again, but we made the best of it and had a lovely time at the beach!

Great Girl's Getaway!!!

  • 4 of 5

Stayed a week here early June of this year and we had a wonderful time. The beach was so clean and there was virtually no seaweed. The walk

over the dunes was a workout but not so bad that we felt it was too much to walk back to the house for lunch and then back to the beach in the afternoon. We were a group of women on a girl's vacation and never felt unsafe. Would have enjoyed a more unobstructed view to the beach, but all in all it was a really nice place to stay.

A great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 11 just spent a 3 day weekend at this great property! It was very roomy, clean, and well-furnished. THe location is great and had a straight shot to the beach. We saw dolphins every day. My grandson even saw a ray. I would definitely recommend this beach house to anyone needing lots of sleeping accommodations. Cid was very easy to communicate with while making arrangements. Deposit returned very promptly!!

A Little Slice of Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family of ten had an amazing experience in this Dauphin Island home. Everything we needed was supplied, and it was clean, comfortable, and we had plenty of space. The location of the home is the perfect distance from the gift shops and restaurants. It is such a quiet, family-friendly place. We had just a short walk out back to get to the white, powdery sand, the clean, private beach, and the best sand crab hunting one could imagine! Each morning, from the deck, we watched the dolphins swimming close to shore. We made some incredible memories. The people in this beach community are among the friendliest you will ever meet. Cid was extremely helpful in making sure we were comfortable, and answered all questions we had. I highly recommend this property to anyone wanting a quiet, family getaway.

Great Beach Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

After planning a beach camping trip with 12 friends to perdido key for the weekend, the forecast took a plunge and was calling for thunderstorms all weekend. I quickly began looking on VRBO for an alternative option for our getaway. Cid was incredibly accommodating and easy to work with. With only a 2 day notice, we were able to smoothly rent the house and were excited that our weekend wasn't ruined. We had such a wonderful time regardless of the rain, lounging on the deck, cooking, sitting on the beach, and playing board games. The house was fully equipped with anything we might have needed. I definitely recommend this beautiful home and will be coming back to rent another time!
