Wonderful home all the amenities!! Right on the water

  • 4 of 5

This house is beautiful!! We loved every part of it!! Now having said that, mother nature had a different story the first two nights we were there & since the house is almost completely in the water at high tide some huge logs were banging into the pylons of the house, so no one slept very well. The driveway flooded and we had to dig out of the sand and help someone else to get out of the sand at the house next to us the first morning that we were there. Which was a little crazy (after not sleeping)!!! The second night it did the same thing so I called Nancy and she was AMAZING!! She said that was not normal and the next day I had to call her again as the dishwasher quit working!!! Ahhh so I had to wash dishes on vacation, which was crappy but ok. Then get ready for this..... the air stopped working halfway thru the last full day of vacation(we only stayed 5 nights😳?) so I called Nancy yet again!! She had someone there and he fixed it as it was 84 degrees in the house in the heat of the day😳?😳?

Anyhoo... the house had everything u could hope for nice patio, great unobstructed views of the ocean, clean bathrooms. BUT NO BEACH IN FRONT OF THE HOUSE!!! it is on both sides and very nice but there is no beach in front to play on which is why we booked it! We had some issues but we enjoyed our stay! Made memories and got to spend time with friend who seem like family!!

Great House that needs a little attention

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay at Dauphin Island and the house was great. The open floor plan was great with the people that stayed with us so that while preparing meals, you could still visit with the rest of the group. I was sad to see the beach erosion since our last trip to the Island. A few years ago, this house had a beach in the front. It no longer does. The Gulf comes right under the house.

A few things that need attention: the pots & pans. Seriously, we could not even cook pancakes because there was no decent skillet in the home with which to do so. Knives: all are dull and need replacing. There was dust behind every TV & knickknack. I know the cleaning crew wants to get in and out of there asap but time needs to be taken to dust everything. The TVs in the bedroom are embarrassing. They are all tiny and only 1 is a flat screen. I realize that we are at the beach and some may think that one does not go to the beach to sit around and watch TV but, at the end of the day when you are wore out from being in the sun all day and it's night so there's little to do, watching TV is a good pastime.

Don't get me wrong: overall this is a great house. All I am saying is that the owners need to improve a few things so make it the best beach house ever.

I have been to Dauphin Island numerous times and this was the craziest wind ever! Many memories were made with my friends. The Gumbo Festival was wonderful. We loved the house! It could not be any closer to the water or it would be in the water. It was nice sitting on the porch and looking at the gulf. We would love to come back to this house! Hopefully later this year.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time and we already want to go back. The only con was the TV's need to be updated and some light bulbs were out.. There was a turtle nest that we could see from the front deck we were hoping they would hatch while we there. Nancy is so easy to work with ..

Great family vacation home

  • 4 of 5

The home was a great place to stay. We had a truly great vacation. Nice to have king size beds and they were all comfortable. Need to add teaspoons, we had toddlers and there was only tablespoons instead of teaspoons to eat with other than the forks. Had 3 coffee pots and none worked, so we bought one and left there for the next family to enjoy... Hope it's still there next year when we come back. Storm blew in on Thursday night and took the patio table with it. Loved hearing the crashing of the waves, except that stormy night. I felt like I was on the cruise ship without the motion of the ocean. Very relaxing sound of the waves. Loved it. Hoping to return next year
