About the property

Bedrooms 4, Bathrooms 4, Sleeps 16

"Kowbunga" is a great Dauphin Island Beach house with many amenities, including a small, private heated dipping pool, a Game Room, roof-top deck and great Gulf of Mexico Beach location. No wonder it's one of our most popular Dauphin Island beach rentals!

This pet-friendly Gulf-side elevated beach house sits just one house back from the Gulf, and so it has tremendous views! The rooftop crow's nest offers a panoramic view of the island. This home also has a small Game Room, which is great for those times that the weather isn't cooperating! The game room is also the 4th bedroom that has a sleeper sofa and a bunk bed.

This elevated, two-story home has a Master Suite on the first level with a private full bath. There is also a half-bath off the kitchen. The Great Room is large, open, and has a flat-screen TV over the fireplace. The Second Level has three bedrooms, two of which share a "Jack and Jill" half bathroom with shower. There is a third, full bathroom on this level, and a Game Room (great for night time, or rainy days). The rooftop has a "Crow's Nest" which provides panoramic views of the Island.

This house may be Pet-friendly, with prior written permission.

All of our Dauphin Island vacation home rentals come complete with linens, towels and fully-equipped kitchens; everything you need for a great family beach vacation. Pool is heated October - April.

4 Bedroom Beachhouse with Pool, Game Room and Rooftop Crow's Nest. Gulf views!
average rating of 3.5 based on 4 reviews

Really needs some work.

  • 3 of 5

The house was ok but with some caveat. It was generally clean but some things were not done well. For example the grill was totally disgusting, like it had not been cleaned in months. The middle burner control would not even turn. The whole place needed a deep cleaning. It also needs some maintenance work done

I had to fix the bathroom door latch to make it close in the master bedroom. One toilet off the kitchen would not flush with out taking the lid off and physically pulling up the flap valve to flush it.If you want pictures I have them. We did enjoy the pool and game room as well as the Crow's nest.

Overall good time, could definitely use some work.

  • 3 of 5

We had a great time at this house, but there are definitely some areas that could be improved. There are quite a few areas where paint has been rubbed off and small holes in walls. The bottom bunk of one of the bunk beds upstairs is being supported by a wooden block where it had been broken. The TV in that room was broken and not hooked up to the Direct TV. The TV in the main room is very nice, and that is plenty, but if you are going to have a TV in a bedroom, make sure it works. Overall, we actually really enjoyed our stay here....most of the areas that could be improved were just cosmetic.......just needs a little updating and touching up.

Could not have been more perfect

  • 5 of 5

First I'd like to tell you some things I was concerned about before arriving. The pictures showed two houses between Kowabunga and the beach. I thought it must be a long walk to the beach and the views must be blocked. I was wrong! The back stairs go down directly to the beach and the two houses between Kowabunga and the gulf actually have posts in the water (too close). There were great views from either side! We wanted to barbecue and I don't think a grill was mentioned, but there is a gas grill on the deck. My husband and I loved the fact that the master bedroom was downstairs while my adult children liked their rooms also. My two grandchildren (ages 5 & 7) were able to sleep in the room with their parents and I must say that they really enjoyed the dipping pool! The 3 1/2 bathrooms came in very handy for the 10 people in our family. There is wifi and cable and, I believe, a television in every room with a dvd player. I would highly recommend this beach house to anybody. Everything was in fine, attractive condition and worked perfectly. We had no need to ever call the owner. We were also blessed with perfect weather and no jelly fish, sting rays, or mosquitos!
