"Island Haus II" is a great little 3 bedroom beach house, and a great value, too! This beach cottage is located directly on the Gulf of Mexico beach, just a few houses back from the water, which means you don't have to cross the street to get to the beach. It has everything you need for your stay, and has an added bonus- a full-span screened porch, which adds lots of living space and a comfortable place to eat or hang out.

This home is bright, clean, and even has partial Gulf of Mexico views. This is a great way to stay at the beach at a very reasonable price!

We had such a lovely state in Dauphin Island. The house was wonderful. The only maintenance issue I can think of is that one of the rocking chairs on the porch seemed unsteady, some of the rods were not connecting on the legs, so we just moved it to a corner and didn't use it during our stay.

Wonderful beach without commercial distractions! House had everything needed for three adults and 5 children. Could have used more cooking utensils for casseroles and larger meal preparation.

Pleasant stay but with some issues.
Posted on: 6/4/2015
The house was pretty much as expected with respect to location and amenities, although they did leave out the fact that it had air conditioning in the property description. Pretty important I'd say in 85+ degrees weather. Was a pleasant surprise. Overall we enjoyed the stay but it had a few downsides. First off, the wifi didn't work and we had no hot water! The managers came out the following day and replaced the breaker for the HWH so we had the hot water after that. They couldn't repair the wifi and had to order another router which of course never showed up during our short 4 day stay. The kitchen blind became inoperative and was stuck with one side up and the other hanging way down. Couldn't fix it. We spilled some water on the kitchen floor and when we wiped it up the paper towel was filthy. Didn't look like the floor had been cleaned since heaven knows when. The beds were fine as were the appliances and utensils. The front porch was a delight although some of the screens were flapping in the breeze and should have been repaired. Not sure we'd stay again given the opportunity.

The rather nondescript exterior belies the bright, cheerful, clean and tasteful interior of this beach house. The kitchen was very well equipped with pots, pans and dishes. The pantry was stocked with essentials such as aluminum foil, ziplock bags, salt, pepper and coffee filters. The bathrooms were fresh and clean and there was ample storage space. A basket near the back door holds colorful beach towels and mats to use at the beach which is just a few paces from the house. The porch rocking chairs could have used a bleaching but as it was too cold for us to enjoy them, it didn't matter. Wi-fi is available and there is a basket of family movies to watch if you are so inclined. We will be back! Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!

As an earlier reviewer noted, the photos don't do the place justice. The exterior is rather nondescript, but the inside is clean, bright and cheerful. The kitchen pantry is stocked with some essentials and the collection of dishes and pots and pans is very generous! Nothing tacky about this place - furnishings and artwork are very tasteful. We will definitely be booking Island Haus II again! Highly recommended!

Pure Relaxation & Convenient
Posted on: 12/12/2014
We were a weary bunch, arriving after midnight due to Baton Rouge holiday traffic. Directions were perfect, key in the lock box, the house was very clean and the a/c was just right. The quiet neighborhood was so cozy & safe. Although I brought all listed supplies, there were plenty of extra left by other kind souls. I love the "pay it forward" of nicer rentals. Call me practical but my favorites were the clean tape across the toilets showing they were cleaned, the washer/dryer that saved me bringing home stinky laundry, and the screened in porch where my mom sat recovering from neck surgery and my busy 6 yr old rode her riding toy & played. We brought our boat & there was plenty of parking. It was a perfect home away from home. Ironically, my mom had been two yrs. earlier & stayed at the same exact cabin. We had no idea it was the same!

Lot better than it looked
Posted on: 12/12/2014
The house was a lot better than it looked from the outside. It is located just a short walk to the beach. One of the best features was the enclosed front porch. Had a small ant problem but was prepared from a previous review. The house was completly equipped with all you need. We ate at the house 5 of the 7 nights and were pleased with kitchen. The only thing that wasn't up to par was the BBQ grill. It appeared that the last people to use the gas grill used it as a charcoal grill. We cleaned their mess out and hooked the gas up and it worked with some extra cleaning. All in All a very nice beach house. WiFi did not work but we brought our own.

Beach Haus II was exactly what I hoped for when I decided on an old fashioned family vacation at the beach (beach house versus a beach area condo or hotel/motel).

Great house close to beach
Posted on: 12/12/2014
The house was great. Looked better in person than it did in the photos. We stayed on the patio a lot - being screened in it stayed cool even though it was is the mid 80's during our stay. Like other reviewers stated there was an ant issue. We went to the store for ant traps but still saw a few stragglers- bottom line no food is safe left out even when covered. The main bathroom is very small and the shower doesn't drain very fast. Great distance from the beach. Overall would stay there again! As far as the real estate company goes it was hard getting them on the phone before the stay it always went to voice mail. Someone would have to call back after I had called, and emailed. They were closed on the Saturday we arrived. We never had a maintenance issue but it concerned me that I might not be able to get in touch with someone.

Best beach spot for vacation with kids!!
Posted on: 12/12/2014
We had 4 adults and 4 children ages 10 months, 4, 6, and 8 and we had the best spot. Close enough to the beach to take an early morning walk and far enough where the kids wouldn't run into the water unattended. The screened in porch blocked those windy nights and also allowed the 10 month old to crawl around safely. The house layout was also great for the kids and adults to easily maneuver around without bumping into each other. I would rent the Island Haus II next time we go.

we found our condo online, specifically for the heated pool in the winter. unfortunately, they made a mistake about how heated the pool is in cold weather. we contacted our manager, and she was incredibly helpful and made sure she could help us fix what wasn't up to our expectations...including the possibility of moving. i appreciated the owner and manager's attention to detail, and would contact them again in the future.

A spacious, well equipped home a short walk from a splendid beach very suitable for young children. During the week, the beach was quiet and pristine. The rental company is well managed and professional. We had an ant attack during our stay and we got both an exterminator and rental company manager directly. The kids (5-8) did not want to leave at the end of the week--that is the the best review I could offer

We were overall very pleased with our stay at this rental. It was very comfortable for four adults and a toddler. The staff worked with our schedule with our child for check in/out. We arrived at our rental a little early and drove by and noticed that the screen of porch door was broken. We called the rental company and went to lunch. When we returned the issue had been fixed. The location was great and the porch was almost as good as the beach. We will definitely come back and stay here again.

The porch makes this rental worth putting up with it's '50's style. Furnishings were nice & comfortable for 4 adults. Nice to have access to amenities used on the beach. Floors & baseboards were dirty and there were ants. We would rent this house again.

A very nice family vacation at the beach.
Posted on: 12/12/2014
The location was great. The beach was amazing. The layout of the house was nice, however it was not very clean. The bathrooms all had hair in the sinks and tubs. The master bed linens had long dark hairs all over under the top sheet. The house needed a good dusting because the vent covers were actually fuzzy. The screen in the screen door was loose and flapping in the wind. All that said we really did have a nice trip and enjoyed ourselves. The screened in porch was probably our favorite place to sit while there. We loved the porch swing and all the rockers.

We thought the house was well organized, although the wireless internet connection at the kitchen bar wasted some valuable prep space. All appliances worked perfectly and there were more than adequate supplies such as pots and pans and dishes. The rooms were comfortable and the deck was nice. We were disappointed when the metal legs of the picnic table on the deck collapsed due to salt-air induced corrosion.

The plusses are numenerous - a couple are: location near the water - this kids could walk to it, and comfort of the house - the layout was great for the number of persons there - the windows were the best. they were a main reason for choosing the house - great light. we were a bit surprised by the low water pressure and the lack of better restaurants on the island, but neither was enough to make us reconsider coming back next year, and neither was enough to prevent us from inquiring about real estate prices. We loved the area.

Posted on: 12/12/2014
We found the house very charming and clean. The windows make it airy and light. The beach is a short, quick, easy walk. Walking to the house helped us dry off and knock some sand off. We enjoyed the screened in porch a lot. Small fans helped us stay cooler on the porch. It was very comfortable with 7 people. Great for families, or as a romantic getaway. We lacked for nothing - all amenities were readily available. We highly recommend the parasailing, riding biles, tour the fort. My son & daughter said parasailing was a blast. We had trouble using our key at first, and the maintenance man was there minutes. (key problem was user error) We never had to call on him again, but knew we had help if we needed it.

Don't be fooled by the outside! Inside of home was beautifully decorated with all the necessary amenities. Brand new washer and dryer. Beach chairs, towels, boogie board all available at the house. Just steps away from a quiet beach location. We thoroughly enjoyed our first ever family vacation there. Would highly recommend this property to our friends and family.
