Comfortable beach house with all amenities one could wish for
Posted on: 3/19/2015
Lots of extras like beach toys, indoor games, well-stocked laundry room, chair pads for deck furniture, and abundant kitchen cookware; water heater was a bit small in capacity and the bathtubs needed some sort of nonslip option. Overall, we would recommend this home for a true island getaway. The surf was excellent at times and the rest of the island amenities were all a short bike ride away! A highlight was the great blue heron who came to our deck several days to check up on us!

Comfortable

We really enjoyed our stay. Everything was wonderful, from the stocked kitchen ware, towels and linens. We loved that we were 100 yards from the beach. The only real drawback was the big house built right in front of the Seafari house (the picture in this review was taken from that house). But it was not too bad, because you don't want to sit on the deck and look at the beach, you want to be on the beach. Would be nice for a kiddie/doggie gate for the porch, as the weather was nice enough to leave our dog out, but couldn't. Overall, very satisfied.

This Beach House Exceed our expectations. We never before have we stayed in a rental cottage that was better equipped with linens, beach toys and cookware. We wanted for nothing! The decor was charming and the unit sparkled! We had one need during our stay and it was handled quickly and efficiently. Thank you helping make our stay memorable and enjoyable winter break vacations. Our pet Muffin enjoy her first time on the beach. These are the place that you definitely have to comeback.

Enjoyed my stay with my sweet dal for a long weekend, away from the normal hustle & bustle of the working world. Great area, with very few people on the beach and pet friendly. The cottage was very well maintained, clean, with all the amenities that anyone needs. The extra Mardi Gras goody bag was awesome too. Thank you for the much needed R&R; at "Seafari"

Peaceful and renewing
Posted on: 12/12/2014
The process to rent and arrival was very easy. The home was as described, location steps from the beach with good partial views of the beach/ocean. We went off season, and it was very peaceful...great to walk the beach, hear the waves, and enjoy nature without human interruption. Location and amenities were very good. We had a wonderful break from winter, and would recommend it to all.

A great get away even in the winter
Posted on: 12/12/2014
No one could ask for a better place if you have pets, being able to put the gate up and leave the dogs on the deck was a great help. The only thing that anyone needs to bring to this home is what they want to eat and drink. The people on the island were all Very nice. There is a lot to see and do even in the winter, two nights were in the low 20's but you never knew it in the house. The next time we go it will be when the weather is a little warmer, every thing else could not have been better. Thanks for the easy way to rent, check in and out.

Perfect every time
Posted on: 12/12/2014
This is the second thanksgiving we spend in Seafari. It is the perfect house for a family of four with family dogs. The house is well equipped for cooking and for young children. There is also wifi and satellite tv. Last year we had warm weather and this year it was bitterly cold. Both experiences were equally fun and the house provided everything we could ever want. Even though there is a house directly in front of seafari, you can still see a lot of the beach and the gorgeous sunsets from the balcony. There is also ample seating outdoors out of the wind and/or sun. The dcor is also hilarious. We love it!

Fantastic Value!
Posted on: 12/12/2014
Very short walk to the beach. The house was immaculate when we arrived. Very well stocked kitchen. Mattresses and linens top quality. There are beach toys, books and games for the kids. There's even a gate to block off the deck so you can leave the dogs outside to dry off. You can get most of the sports channels. The Wi-Fi worked very well. Decent view of the beach, there's a couple of houses between Seafari and the beach but that was a good tradeoff for very reasonable rates. We will definitely be back!

Jelly fish mating season & oil rigs & no way to call Nancy
Posted on: 12/12/2014
I would suggest anyone thinking about taking a vacation to do your home work about the changes that are happening all over this country. I think the island is beautiful, the people were nice but it was a big disappointment to not be able to walk the shoreline without fear of an encounter by jelly fish, to see so many oil rig, & not have a good view of the ocean. We took our golden retreiver & was too afraid of the jelly fish to let him in the water. But what really upset me was that when I tried to call Nancy about the rental, her answering machine was full. We felt the home was nice but we did not have a good view of the ocean as was promised by Nancy. We do not have a lot of money so it was a sacrifice to go but the island is really pretty.

Yes, there is a house right in front of this place, but it only blocks out a tiny, tiny portion of the rest of the gorgeous view. You are just steps from the water and the house is great. It is the best stocked house I have ever stayed in anywhere.

We had a wonderful time at Seafari! The house was perfect for us, and the kitchen is truly fully stocked! The location was ideal and the beach access is great! The weather didn't cooperate with us but it didn't dampen our experience at all! We had great service by the rental company and will definitely stay here again when we're in the area!

Seafari Review July 2014
Posted on: 5/5/2016
We had a great time down in Dauphin Island. There was only 4 of us and did not need a really large house on the beach. The house was clean and some normal wear and tear from being a rental property on the beach. We did not have any issues with the booking or any issues with the house. Great location on the island if you enjoy the beach and a very close walk down to the beach. Was easy to hook up to WIFI and had DirecTV in living and bedrooms. The closet was full of items to use at the beach. There were plenty of outdoor chairs and we even enjoyed using the BBQ grill to cook out. We seen many jealous people walking from 1-3 blocks away to get to the beach as we just had to walk off the deck and about 50ft to the beach. Had a great time!!

Great little family get away!
Posted on: 12/12/2014
We stayed here a week and had a wonderful time... There's not a lot on the island- just what we were looking for. My husband, 18 month old daughter and myself stayed at the rental property. The house was fully stocked with cooking supplies and it was a great location. From the house's porch you could see the ocean to the left and the bay to the right....

We loved our stay here – very relaxing! We came off season and it was very peaceful. We walked on the beach at night and rode our bikes around the island during the day. We spent one day at the USS Alabama and it was a lot of fun (and I don’t even care for that kind of thing). The information left in your book was very helpful! We picked up pizza from Rainbow Island and it was yummy! All in all...excellent!
