Our stay was amazing. The house far exceeded our expectations. The decor was so lovely and felt so much like home away from home. Our families enjoyed our vacation and look forward to coming back again next year.

Good experience overall

Let me start with the positives about the house. It was clean and well stocked with needed items. We did buy some washcloths and leave there because there wasn't quite enough and we also bought a can opener as well. The one there was rusted and didn't work. The view was nice even with the house that was built right in front, the porch is big enough to enjoy an open view from the left side. Check in was easy. The location was nice. One of the king size bed was awful, really needs to be replaced. The other two was fine. The 2 twin beds were ok, suitable for children. The air conditioning unit was not big enough for the size of the house. It works but its hard to keep up with heat from about 10 am till 10 pm. At night it cools well but the bedroom I slept in did not cool good at all. I did enjoy our vacation in this house, but next time we hope to rent the one that's right in front of this house or another a couple houses down.And the couch covers needed a good bleaching, it was stained and didnt appear to be very clean, not sure how often it gets washed.

The house was beautiful, and views were great!! The house was very clean and accommodated our needs. The beach was nice and clean, and when we come back next year, we want this house again!!!Internet worked great, and was happy for the near by attractions to see...

This is a big, comfortable home beach close. The children were safe from traffic in a nearly private beach. The nearby rentals were stocked with playmates close in age. The "sand box" beneath the house was a perfect retreat from the hot, mid day sun. We adults appreciated the large, well equipped kitchen and ample dining table.

Wonderful house!
Posted on: 6/12/2013
What a pleasant surprise to walk in and find such a nice home! Love the layout...the kitchen was wonderful! There is a house in front of this house but it is kinda catty cornered, so it doesn't disturb the view very much. The bay is right across the street. Our kids had more fun in the bay catching crabs and finding dead stuff! Boys... It was a very relaxing atmosphere, with hardly anyone on the beach. All in all, a wonderful experience and great memories were made. Thank you Dauphin Island Rentals!

enjoyable and relaxing vacation

We enjoyed our stay at beach break. You can hear the waves from the gulf and watch the sunsets from the back deck. The house is in a perfect location, steps from the gulf beach front and across the street to the calmer bay beach. The house is well maintained, bed was comfortable, everything was in good working order. Large kitchen with plenty of work space. Appreciate the outdoor furniture including a swing. The only minor complaints are what has been stated previously. No working remote for TV, charcoal grill has some issues and the wifi password was not easy to find or read. Would definitely consider staying here again. Love the peace and quiet of Dauphin Island and this location and house was perfect for our needs. We have used this rental company before and appreciate the easy check in process and quick response to questions.

Great experience-with two small areas for improvement
Posted on: 5/16/2013
For work I travel 80% of the year and I get the luxury of staying at 5 star hotels so please understand that this review is coming from that point of view. The house is immaculate!! I always worry about houses on the beach but this one could not have been any cleaner, and with two little boys under 4 this is always a big concern! The space was perfect, the rooms were huge and the bathrooms were also nice size. The kitchen was really large and everything was laid out perfectly. I was a little hesitant to know that a house was literally right infront of this house, I was afraid it would obstruct the view of the ocean. Though the house did prevent us from having a full view, we could still sit outside and enjoy a beautiful view. The only two comments that I would like to share that are not as positive is that we did not have the code to the wifi and we called and left a message but never heard back. Also the tv's were really outdated and one of them did not have a remote control. Though you would think that a beach house you would not need to watch TV nor be on the computer, but since it rained 3 out of the 4 days we were there, those things became critical. Overall the house is in a great location and it is a nice rental, I would stay here again.

a great get away that was beautiful and peaceful
Posted on: 5/10/2013
loved dauphin island. the rental company was extremely helpful and knoweledgeable. alll in all, we would use your rental company and come to the island again. very quiet and peaceful. lots of dogs and families. lovely long walks on the beach. island could use a few more resturants, but all in all a great and interesting vacation. lovely long walks on the beach that goes on forever. we thought the house was a bit bare and smaller an expected. cockroaches in the dishwasher, an odd smell in the house that lasted for several days and a broken modem. all and all a great time and minor complaints. however, for the price, i would expect better. will use rental company and come to island again, however.

Relaxing get away

An excellent home with a good view of the ocean. The back deck was excellent for relaxing and enjoying the sound of the sea 24/7. I would stay there again.

Very relaxing wonderful beach house
Posted on: 11/14/2012
Our family of four stayed at the house for four nights and it was great. The house has everything you need and is very spacious. The beach access is amazing, literally steps to the water and you have your own beach area. The rental process was easy and friendly, we made the reservation at the last minute (one day before) and there were no issues at all. We will definitely be back!

Beach Break was super clean, very spacious, would highly recommend this beach house ! First time there, will not be the last !Our dog enjoyed the beach also !

We had a lovely time at Dauphin Island.
Posted on: 11/14/2012
Our stay at the Beach Break house was a wonderful experience. The house was very comfortable. There is one suggestion I would like to make. Since a house was built in front of the Beach Break house, you may want to place blinds on the windows and door in the living room to add privacy.

Great week away at Beach Break
Posted on: 11/14/2012
My family really enjoyed our stay at Beach Break. The cabin was spacious and comfortable for me and my family (wife + 5 kids ages 12-20). Check in is about as easy as it gets. Everybody had a wonderful time. Even though it is now a second row house, we still were a mere 30 second walk to the water! My favorite activity was getting up early and walking to the bayside (a 3-5 minute walk) to catch speckled trout. Fresh pan seared trout with my morning cup of coffee? Well, it didn't suck! If I had to nitpick and find some negatives, I'd say one is the DVD player needs a working remote. We had a couple days where lightning storms chased us indoors. Watching movies without a remote for the DVD player meant if somebody stopped the movie midway, we had no way of fast forwarding and had to rewatch to that point...minor complaint and easily remedied. I meant to leave a note for the owners to that effect on our departure, but I forgot...sorry :) The only other complaint about the house would maybe be the BBQ was on it's last legs and needs a replacement. My only other issue would not be with the house but with the beach. Beautiful sand. Beautiful water (when it wasn't all stirred up by storms)...but there are some danger spots under the surface. I am guessing what we felt were the remnants of old beach house piers claimed by all the hurricanes in recent years. Me and the kids were unfortunate enough to get cut up a couple times by these...especially at low tide as you came down after bobbing up on a nice wave. This may be an issue all over the island and not just the beach near Beach Break though. I didn't notice it at high tide at all though and I am 6'2"...just be aware. All in all I would definitely recommend this rental and plan on returning to the area again in the future.

Fabulous Getaway despite Debby
Posted on: 11/14/2012
This was our first ime to Dauphin Island and we are already planning next years return trip. The house was absolutely perfect and when we walked in I was so pleased with everything. We had to leave the island the next morning because of the rising waters of Tropical Storm Debby, but Nancy was wonderful. She went above and beyond to help find us alternate lodging for the nite. We were able to return the following morning and the vacation couldn't have been better. There was lots of time spent on the back porch and just enjoying the serene waves of the gulf. The dolphin sightings were almost daily after the waters calmed on wednesday. This house is perfect for a large family like ours. Plenty of space and lots of living area for eating and game playing. We will return next year to the same home and are talking of making this an aannual trip. Thanks for such a memorable week!!

the service was very good, the home was very clean & well furnished, we loved the home the childern wanted to stay! Location was very good, just the one home in the front but still a great view. I loved the peacfullness & the beach.

A great relaxing getaway!
Posted on: 11/14/2012
This place was great! The only concern I had was the house directly in front of Beach Break. It was also a rental..but the renters were extremely rude to us while we were on vacation. A great rental for a big family:)

Absolutely peaceful and relaxing!
Posted on: 11/14/2012
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the "Beach Break" house in Dauphine Island. When we arrived it was very clean and everything was exactly as described and exceeded our expectations. Even though there was 1 house between us and the beach, we still had an excellent view of not only the Gulf but also the bay area on the other side. It is a nice and peaceful with very little traffic from vehicles or pedestrians to worry about. The beach was nice and clean. The bedrooms and living area were very nicely appointed. We had plenty of bathroom space and kitchen space. Can't wait to go back.

Relaxing with a great location
Posted on: 11/14/2012
We stayed for the weekend in early May 2012. The house is great- perfect sized and well equipped. We loved the back porch which had a swing and a few rockers. There was a covered and uncovered section which was great to get out of the sun. We used the grill on the front porch and that worked well. The house is in a great location - you are on the beach and there is just one house between you and the water but really you feel as though you are right on the wave line too. The beach was quiet and we really enjoyed ourselves.

Home, not a rental
Posted on: 11/14/2012
That rental was amazing. We are veteran vacation renters, and neither of us could even come up with one complaint. That is a home, not a rental. Thank you.

Great views, great fishing
Posted on: 11/14/2012
Our first time to stay at Dauphin Island - we usually stay in North Florida or Orange Beach. The kids loved picking up the sea shells, the fishing for spec's from the surf was very good, the house was well laid out for 8 to 10 people, the sand was white and nice and clean, the response times to get the air conditioner repaired and the bath tub drain to be cleared was really good - over all a great place to stay. Also, the bakery on the island was super nice to go to each moring for breakfast.

We just loved this vacation home - very comfortable, had everything we needed and right on the beach. Loved watching the dolphins, crabbing and shelling! A great place to relax for the entire family!!

watch out for big brother....he's watching
It was a beautiful home, but big brother was watching.....
Posted on: 11/14/2012
Beach break is a very beautiful rental. It is very spacious and comfortable. However, it is very uncomfortable having the rental agent and owner watching your every move. The final straw was when the owner called to remind us to put the lawn chairs back on the deck before we left. I would rent from someone else to have the privacy I paid for.

Happiness on the beach
Posted on: 11/14/2012
Our 3 granddaughters aged 7, 5 and 1 loved the house, the beach, the water, the town, the weather and especially the hermit crabs. This was their first time to any beach and it meant a lot to us that they had a nice lovely home to stay in. The house was everything the website had claimed it was. First day we had a problem with the air conditioning which Nancy promptly took steps to rectify and we had no more issues. We will definitely come again. The Teagues

Relaxed and Loving It
Extremely Relaxing
Posted on: 11/14/2012
My husband and I shared Beach Break with his Dad and Stepmom and I can honestly say that it was one of the most relaxing, laid back and enjoyable vacations I have enjoyed in a long time. Enjoyed daily walks on the beach with some fantastic shelling. The house is great for multiple families. With three master bedrooms and 3 baths we never had to worry about getting in each others way. We very much enjoyed the ocean view right outside our balcony. You could sit on the couch in the front room and enjoy the ocean view or you could go out on the porch swing and enjoy the same view. The porch swing was one of my favorite spots. The only negative thing I could say about it was that there was only one porch swing and it would of been great to have two porch swings! An area that could stand improvement was the parking -you had to park too far away from the house and had to walk through extremely soft sand to reach the stairs and there was only one staircase in the front of the house. It would benefit if there was a driveway that you could park in or at least a path from the street parking to the stairs that would eleminate the need to walk through soft sand while carrying your luggage up the stairs. It would of been nice to have a staircase with direct beach access off the porch facing the ocean. I would highly recommend this house to anyone desiring a relaxing vacation in a clean, conveniently located to the beach, comfortably furnished house.

The house was great!!

Beach Break was a great house to stay in...We loved it, maybe a little too much. The kids liked their rooms better than their rooms at home. We would love to come in the summer, when the weather is warmer.

beautiful beach stay
Posted on: 11/14/2012
We had a lovely time staying at Beach Break. The views all around were fabulous and being that close to the water was the best feature. The home was well maintained and taken care of, the amenities were great. I would recommend Beach Break for families with younger children who are happy just playing on the beach and adults without children. My 25 year old daughter said that there wasn't enough to do. You should also let older adults know that the closest hospital is about a 45 minute drive from Dauphin Island. Unfortunately we had to find this out. Overall, we had a wonderful time and would return again.

This house is wonderful! From the bed linens to the crock pot, everything you need is here! We had 6 adults and 4 children ages 2-8 and everyone had a comfy bed. The view and sounds of the waves were wonderful. One thing I don't like about the area (same for gulf shores) is all the oil rigs out in the gulf - detracts from the view. Would also be careful with small children swimming as there are posts of rebar at intervals down the beach (can't tell what the purpose is) and can be mostly hidden if the tide is high. We would be coming back for summertime if we could!

Perfect family getaway! A must do away from the hustle and bustle of work and the city. Though, close enough if you need to go to town.

Wonderful break
Posted on: 11/14/2012
What a wonderful break we had at Beach Break home on thew Gulf at Dauphin Island, so close to the water, wonderful shelling, walks on beach, peace, relaxation, renewal of spirit, sunsets amazing, watched the Shrimp Boats, followed by Dolphin Pods. Home is well appointed, very comfortable, and also contributes to one's wellbeing. This was a spur of the moment trip, well worth it, and our third trip to the island. Thankyou Nancy, for facilitating such a lovely mini vacation. Kind regards to all. The people of Dauphin Island are also very special. We will return in June 2010.

A Memorable Vacation
Posted on: 11/14/2012
We had a fabulous time at Dauphin Island this past week. The beach house was so very wonderful. Actually, it was perfect. We had each one of our kids and grandkids to tell us their favorite experience at Dauphin Island. We loved the ferry and watching our kids/grandkids feed the "scavenger" birds left-over bread as they followed the ferry. Our two granddaughters loved the Estuarium and being able to touch the sea creatures, as well as, looking at the octopus climbing his rock. Our grandson was fascinated with swimming/boggy boarding in the ocean and listening to its sound. One of our sons and his wife strolled the beach at night with flashlights looking at the sea creatures and picking up sea shells. Another son enjoyed "hanging out" with his dad on the deck watching the sunset over the ocean. As you can see, we had the best time ever! We will always cherish the memories Dauphin Island provided us. Thanks for everything,

Exactly what we were looking for!!!
Posted on: 11/14/2012
Our stay at the Beach Break was awesome!! The location is great with lots of privacy and a beatiful beach right outside. The house is well equipped and was perfect for us traveling with 2 small kids. We had a wonderful 5 days there and when we asked to extend for a day that worked out perfect without any problems. Would go through the same agency and to the same house again if I had the chance!!

Beautiful, clean place right on the beach!
Posted on: 11/14/2012
First off, this house is very nice and the layout is very conducive to both family interaction and privacy. The beach is very close to the house and is quite beautiful. However, take note that the photos here, while beautiful captures of the house, are not up to date. In fact, there is a house nearing completion directly behind this house in between the house and the beach so the view of the beach is almost completely obstructed by the new house being built. That being said, we're planning on returning sometime soon.
