Overview

About the property

Dauphin Island, Alabama

Let this spacious 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom Dauphin Island vacation rental cottage serve as your home base for exploring the Sunset Capital of Alabama! Nestled in a quiet beach community, this 1,200-square-foot abode comfortably sleeps 8 and is ideal for warm weather travelers and snowbirds alike, ensuring a relaxing trip with incredible views of the ocean. Create memorable days lounging on the warm white sand as your fellow travelers play in the calm Gulf of Mexico. At night, gaze up at the clear stars from your private porch. Your seaside retreat awaits!

THE PROPERTY

The moment you arrive, you'll simply fall in love with the unit's breathtaking setting, surrounded by picturesque beach scenery, reminding you how close you are to the warm sand and rolling surf. All the essential amenities you want in your ultimate home-away-from-home are here, including air conditioning, in-unit laundry machines, and a gourmet kitchen.

You'll enjoy easily communicating with everyone in the open-concept layout of the great room. Relax on the plush furnishings while watching your favorite shows on the TV or disconnect with a good novel.

Look forward to enjoying your early morning coffee outside on the cottage's lovely private deck, where you can take in the gulf views and relish in the tranquility of the area. After the sun goes down, convene with your loved ones on the deck to observe the spectacular display of twinkling stars across the night sky. Thanks to the absence of glaring city lights, the stargazing here is amazing!

At the end of a memorable day spent playing at the beach, come home to prepare a tasty meal in the fully equipped kitchen. Essential appliances and ample counter space allow you to create meals as though you never left home. Savor hearty feasts at the 4-person dining room table before gathering around the sitting area on the lower level patio.

3 bedrooms offer a comfortable place to rest and recuperate after exciting days on the beach. The master bedroom features a queen-sized bed and en-suite bathroom for guest's privacy. Additional guests will sleep soundly on the full beds of the 2 other bedrooms.

THE LOCATION

Ideally situated at the West End of the island, this charming cottage will let you enjoy easy access to everything Dauphin Island has to offer!

From here, you'll be a stone's throw from beautiful beaches, great seafood restaurants, prime bird watching opportunities, and the historical Fort Gaines, notable for its important role in the Battle of Mobile Bay during the American Civil War.

Bellingrath Gardens is also nearby, home to a fascinating 65-acre public display garden and mansion on the Fowl River in a suburb of Mobile, Alabama.

Wonderful home

  • 4 of 5

We just got back from our mini vacation in this beautiful home, It had everything we need and plenty of room for us to stretch out, not right on the beach from close enough you can see and hear the waves. I would consider renting this home again next time we come to Dauphin Island.

The House Could Be Nice, but.....

  • 3 of 5

Overall, this house could be great, but it was lacking a lot. It was very obvious guests who have stayed here have trashed the place a couple times and are too lazy to pick up after themselves. I can see where at one point this was an amazing house, but due to guests destroying items and the owner not keeping up with what was broken/dirtied, the house is no longer in its prime.

We were very disappointed with our stay, and most likely will never rent this house again. My three stars are comparable to what I would judge a hotel I would stay in for a week.

Pros:

-Short walk to the beach

-AC works GREAT! (temps in upper 80's and low 90's during the week we stayed here)

-Great WiFi

-The price is better than most in the area

-There are tons of kids DVD's and Coloring books in the hall closet

Cons:

-House was still dirty when we arrived. I do not think the owner is the one who is cleaning it, but a cleaning service. Sadly, I feel the owner is being taken advantage of. (One example is the fridge had not been cleaned out in over 2 years, I threw away an entire trash bag of EXPIRED condiments, drinks, & food, just so we could fit all of our food)

-There is random junk in all the closets, which make them unusable if you want to move luggage out of the way

-The local TV barely works

- Pictures ARE NOT UP TO DATE!!! The house looks completely different

- Grill does not work and is disgusting (we had to purchase a tailgating grill just to prepare a planned meal based on the fact this place had a working grill)

-Beds are VERY VERY firm... if you like a firm bed, then this will be a Pro for you

-Non working Dishwasher (I understand this is no longer considered an amenity, but when I booked in Feb it was)

-Despite the pictures, there is no toaster oven (we had 4 kids under 5 so a toaster oven is great for a quick lunch, and we were disappointed)

-Light bulbs out in two rooms (including the Master, which obviously was not replaced after the last review)

-There are no patio tables to have dinner outside, just chairs. There is no place to relax and entertain outdoors like stated in the listing

-Under the house is dirty and cluttered, the bed is just a mattress and there is no table or chairs

-There are holes in the Master Bath door

Owner's Response: Hello Jennifer, Thank you for providing us with this feedback and we apologize for the few issues you experienced during your stay. All of these concerns have been addressed with the homeowner and she plans to make many upgrades during the off season, including a deep clean and replacing furniture. The grill has already been replaced with a charcoal grill and is ready for the next arrival. After these updates have been made we will be sending a photographer out to get accurate and current photos. Cheers, The Evolve Team

Great Location, plenty of space.

  • 4 of 5

The house location was AMAZING, the beach an easy walk across the road. Running lane on the side of the road. Fun restaurants and shops! The house was adequate, and for its size had plenty of space and beds! The house could use a deep cleaning and organizing! It was clean, just the cabinets could use a little TLC. Simple things like toilet paper, dish soap, etc were NOT provided. So plan accordingly. The only little grocery store is limited, and expensive, so plan for that too. I would rent this place again!!!! We had a great week!!!!!

Very nice. Master bedroom needs a light bulb replaced.

  • 5 of 5

Beach house was very attractive. Weather could have been more cooperative!!!!!

Maybe you should put in your info that no paper products are furnished. We weren't aware there would not be any garbage bags, bath tissue or paper towels. It can be inconvenient when you run out and there isn't any more without a trip to the store.

Overall great place. Love the Island !!!

It's quirky

  • 3 of 5

As you may know the dishwasher does not work. So, if this is a deal breaker, don't come. Now, positives:: The beach butler worked and was a pleasure. The a/c worked well all week on 72. Internet was fast. The location is good, close to the beach. The gas grill worked. It was well equipped if you could find it.

Negatives: The place needs a good deep cleaning. Master bed was hard and lumpy. Bed swing downstairs is just a bare mattress (fix it up or take it down). Generally things didn't work well.

Like I said, quirky.

Owner's Response: We appreciate your feedback! While the listing is not advertised with a dishwasher, we have taken additional measures to clarify in the listing that this is not an available amenity. We understand that expectation setting is important and want to ensure future guests are aware. The master bedroom mattress is firm, and that suits many travelers, but not all! You feedback was sent and acknowledged by the property owner and we hope for the opportunity to assist you in your future travels! Best, The Evolve Team
