Great location. House needs some TLC.

  • 3 of 5

The size of the house was perfect for our large group and being right on the beach was amazing. On the flip side, the linens in the house need updating as the towels and sheets were extremely thin. There were a couple of appliances with broken/missing parts as well. I felt it should have been better maintained for the price we paid. We enjoyed Dauphin Island and plan to return, but we will search for a different house on the beach next time.

This was the perfect getaway for our family! The location couldn't have been better and the extras - the deck pool, rec room, and crow's nest were great touches to the already amazing house and beach we enjoyed every single day!

Strand Castle

  • 5 of 5

Having recently enjoyed our stay at the Strand Castle property recently, we would like to thank you for the opportunity to do so and look forward to working with you again perhaps, as we plan to return to the area periodically in the coming years.

The amenities including the game room, small pool and observation deck were second to none. The shops and restaurants on the island were nice and even driving thru the neighborhood on the east side and going thru the fort was a lot of fun. We liked it some much we never left the island. Everyone is so friendly too.
