Beautiful sunrise and sunset, and white beach and awesome home!!
Posted on: 3/26/2015
The home was clean, excellent floor plan and very beautiful with everything we needed for a wonderful week at the beach. Appreciated the extra linens, towels, washer, dryer, kitchen well equipped with what we needed. We had beautiful sunrises and sunsets and white beach to walk on. Did not really go swim in the water because it was to cold but walked the beach and that was great. Saw a few dolphins which was good. Enjoyed the location because it was close to the Fort Gaines, Sea Lab, USS alabama and Golf Shores by way of the Ferry. We would hope to come maybe later in Feb or early March and the weather might be a little warmer next time. Would definitely recommend this home and area to my friends.

Dauphin Island Beach Rentals made the check-in/out process fast, painless and easy. The home was very comfortable and the setting perfect. We loved the gorgeous sunsets and barely saw any other people the 5 days we were there. Loved, loved, loved that they were dog-friendly, so we could enjoy a stay at the beach with our pups (one 14.5 years old). It was off-season, but since we are from Colorado, we thoroughly enjoyed the sand, the seashells, moderate temperatures and listening to the ocean waves. The kitchen had everything we needed, the washer/dryer were nice to have and the bed was comfortable. The Island itself is rather isolated, but we saw quite a few birds and dolphins swimming in the water. We were there to decompress and relax---perfect! Thanks for sharing your home!

Wonderful Ocean Front Home! Thankful this home was available on such short notice. Flipkey management was very professional. 4 Bedrooms accommodated our family of four, & two dogs. The only thing you need to bring is your food, & coffee. This home has all cookware, kitchen utensils, paper products, beach towels, plenty of bath towels, and to top it off, beach toys for a family with little ones (we used it to collect seashells, hermit crabs, & the larger sand crabs). The furniture was up to date, 2 flat screen Tv's, free internet & long distance phone service. The owner of this property should be commended for putting such thought into our short term needs. If you want to get away, and just enjoy your family & the ocean, this is the place. It is located at the end of the island, on the sand! P.S. we did overstock our personal needs, with extra toilet paper, trash bags, & paper towels. The home did have these items, but if you are staying longer than four days, we would recommend packing these extra items. There are also deck chairs, a gas grill, & a picnic table on the back deck for your use.

Relaxing Stay - Excellent Location
Posted on: 3/26/2015
The house was immaculate and decorated well. The balcony over the gulf in back was phenomenal. We had all of our meals there each day. Every day we saw dolphins and plenty of other fish while sitting out there. There is a retaining wall now, so the deck actually sits over the water. The sunrises and sunsets are indescribable - a thing of true, natural beauty that words cannot capture. There are three different spots to hose off the sand before going into the house from the beach area. Plenty of pillows, blankets, pots, pans, detergent, towels, and any other amenity a guest could want. There is a house directly behind this one. It had three different guests while we were there, but none were obtrusive or noticed as the West Beach house is quite private due to the way it sits on the gulf. Even when it rains, this house affords a view and a deck that cannot be missed. The deck has a nice gas grill that we used twice. If you do not want to cook, go to Skinners and have your seafood steamed - it's excellent. The Lighthouse bakery is worth a trip at breakfast. Drawbacks: none, except the oil rigs that sit out in the gulf - that's anywhere on the alabama/Mississippi coast. Excellent house, nice sand, great location, wonderful amenities, plenty of good food and things to see and do on the island for low-key, nature loving vacationers.

Posted on: 3/26/2015
This Rental company is wonderful! 3 generations vacation here for the tranquility and family atmosphere. Beautiful views and gorgeous beaches. The best thing w found is peace of mind and no worries when we book with this rental company. They offer some of the most beautifully appointed beachfront homes on the island. They also go out of their way to accommodate your concerns. This is the 2nd time we have vacationed here and the 2nd year in a row where the weather was forecasted for potential Hurricane possibilities. The Rental company went out of their way to ensure our safety and still be able to enjoy our vacation. They moved us to a safer location both years. They called us and made sure everything was to our satisfaction and that we were comfortable. We had a toddler and 3 month old there so to say that everything they did was so appreciated is the absolute truth. The weather turned beautiful after 1 day each time. We will definitely be back and choose this Realty Company again for our needs. Michael and Wendy

Perfect family get-a -way!

West Beach was just perfect for our little family of 2 adults and 4 little ones. The pictures of the unit don't do it justice. We were amazed at how spacious it was. Kudos to the cleaning crew as well because the entire house was absolutely spotless. Anything that you could possibly need in the kitchen was provided. There were an abundance of towels, wash cloths, and beach towels as well as beach chairs and toys. The house truly is right on the water! There now is a sea wall surrounding the house for protection, but it did not take away from the beach being litterally right out the door. As a matter of fact, the wall was a blessing for my fisherman husband and children! He caught dinner right in front of the house! There is another house that abuts up to the back of the house, but we never felt any privacy issues. There were even a few days we were the only ones on the beach! Tips: Get groceries off island. There is a store that carries a variety of stuff, but you will still need to stop before the island. You can eat solely on island if you'd like. Check out the Estuary on the island. There was only one day the surf was too rough so we checked it out. Our kids (ages 8,6,4,3) all enjoyed it. The ferry to Gulfport is pricey, but there is lots to do. (Go to Lulu's!) We had a wonderful stay on this magical island. Our kids had fun playing on a clean, safe beach. We are already looking at our calendars for dates to return.

Wonderful place to stay!
Posted on: 3/26/2015
This home is comfortable and laid out well for a family get together at the beach or to give a family space to spread out and enjoy the beach. We loved the location which allowed up to watch dolphins coming across the gulf and rays swimming up around the sandbars. We will definitely be coming back!

West Beach House
Posted on: 3/26/2015
This vacation beach house had everything we needed. The four bedrooms made our stay very comfortable. The kitchen was fully equipped with everything we needed to cook. My favorite part of the house was the long covered back porch which looked over the water. We ate every meal on the patio. Looking out from my bedroom, it looked as if I was on a cruise ship. This was one of our favorite family vacations. We were together, yet had enouch room to spread out. I will definitely return. Make sure you go to the Lighthouse Bakery.

A wonderful location and just about perfect
Posted on: 3/26/2015
Just finished a week in West Beach and had a wonderful time. The picture doesn't show but there is a second house north of you on the same lot. West Beach is between that house and the gulf. We set up to the west of our house on a private beach area and neighbors were on the east side of our houses, also private. The neighbors were also from arkansas and very friendly, but it could be an issue if you didn't have good luck with your neighbors. The house is lovely and the perfect layout for our family. 5 adults and a toddler. The split floor plan 2BDR, 1B each side of the combined living/dining area allowed for family privacy. The back deck was perfect for dolphin and pelican watching and toddler napping. Cooler gulf water, no jellyfish and a close walk to the north side of the island which had tons of crabs and shells. Locals were very friendly, although food/restaurant choices were limited, especially if you are more used to Gulf Shores/Orange Beach area. Cooking yourself is likely a better option. Skinner's Seafood was an extremely well run operation and offers multiple take out choices if you don't cook. Note their closed day. Small bare windows in both of the back bedrooms mean bright sunlight. We stuffed the bedding pillows that were covered with shams in the window sill and were able to darken the room nicely. Great for naps when the sun has drained you or sleeping in. Or you can use a sleep mask like my daughter. Apliances are older but in good shape, I was able to bake and cook with ease. Furniture is a little sparse for 5 adults and a 40 pound dog and one bedroom did not have a dresser at all. We took pictures and moved furniture around to suit us. An added loveseat and larger rug in the living area, a dresser in the one bedroom and some table lamps would round it out. It certainly didn't detract from our visit but it did feel a bit like musical chairs when everyone was in the living room together. Lol

An awesome vacation

West Beach was just what we were looking for! The privacy and non-commercial feel of Dauphin Island made this location the ideal get away for our family. The home is right on the water. Many mornings we sat on the front deck and felt the ocean's spray. The house was immaculate and included everything we needed for our 7 night stay. Fishing, fresh seafood, and seclusion with a top notch ocean front home; this place is perfect!

West Beach house
Posted on: 3/26/2015
My recent stay was very memorable. We did alot of beach walking toward the public beach area and felt totally away from it all. The house was fantastic, comfortable and had everything we needed. I would plan an repeat stay there anytime in the future. I highly recommend it to anyone seeking a special place to rent. I would have appreciated a sign down below on the house pier discouraging non renters from fishing below me as it was disturbing at times. Overall I loved the time I spent there.

We really enjoyed our stay at this West Beach cabin. We went the week before Hurricane Isaac hit. I remember when we left, the storm was in the Caribbean. Hope there was no damage to this beautiful rental. It was clean and we really enjoyed the back porch. It sat right over the Gulf and the views were spectacular. The house was very clean and it had everything we needed. We had the beach to ourselves and we really enjoyed it. It was my husband and myself and our 19 year old daughter that stayed. We all had our own space. It was one of the most relaxing vacations we have ever had. Hope to go back next year!

Amazing beach house!!
Posted on: 3/26/2015
My family thoroughly enjoyed this beach house and island!! It was exactly what we were looking for and more! We could watch sting rays, all kinds of schools of fish, numerous dolphins following shrimp boats, and even a shark from the balcony overlooking into the water! The house was extremely clean and we loved the open floor plan! The owner came right over when we had a small issue with an appliance and had it fixed immediately. He was very polite and kind. It was an awesome experience for our entire family and one we will remember for years to come! We have already booked again!!!

Fabulous Family Vacation Spot!!
Posted on: 3/26/2015
We have 3 daughters ranging in ages from 18-20 and this place was perfect for us! With only two houses between us and the public beach on one side and the next lot being empty, we had one side of the beach to ourselves the entire week, and yet we were still close enough to "town" to be there in just a few short minutes. The house was great! There were plenty of sheets, towels and extra blankets and someone had even left a few extra cleaning and washing supplies behind. The kitchen had everything needed for cooking except for some storage containers with lids for leftovers. We really appreciated the beach chairs that were provided as well as the sand castle building stuff that we used for sand sculptures. We were at the house for a week and never left the island except for going on the ferry to visit Fort Morgan. Everything we needed could be found somewhere right on the island. Plenty of things for us and the kids to do without all the crowds. We went to the Sea Lab, Fort Gaines and Fort Morgan, Parasailing, frequented all the shops and most of the eating establishments and dolphin watched off the front porch just to mention a few things. We loved everything about our stay except for having to leave! We will definitely be back!

The house was right on the Gulf. The owners have put much thought into making the house comfortable for guests. The covered deck was excellent. The two front bedrooms look out on the Gulf and you can hear the surf at night. Note: there is a house directly behind this house about 40 feet away but nothing but sand and water on each side.

Most awesome experience!
Posted on: 3/26/2015
My family and I had the best experience staying at West Beach. We came down for Mardi Gras and weren't disappointed. I have vacationed in Dauphin 4 times now and this was one of the best homes we have stayed in. We were able to watch dolphins frolicking right from the porch of this home, and fall asleep every night listening to the crash of the waves. David and Nancy answered questions and emails promptly. The home was everything described and more. I would recommend this home and Dauphin Island rental to anyone looking for a great experience in every sense of the word!

Our family had such a magical time at West Beach. What a beautiful home! The location was perfect. We plan to return hopefully very soon! It really means a lot to us when we find a place that is friendly to bigger families with little ones. Our four children played happily and safely on your beautiful shoreline. Thank you so much for sharing your magical island with us!

Furniture is a little sparse for 5 adults and a 40 pound dog and one bedroom did not have a dresser at all. We took pictures and moved furniture around to suit us. An added loveseat and larger rug in the living area, a dresser in the one bedroom and some table lamps would round it out. It certainly didn't detract from our visit but it did feel a bit like musical chairs when everyone was in the living room together. Lol

An awesome vacation

West Beach was just what we were looking for! The privacy and non-commercial feel of Dauphin Island made this location the ideal get away for our family. The home is right on the water. Many mornings we sat on the front deck and felt the ocean's spray. The house was immaculate and included everything we needed for our 7 night stay. Fishing, fresh seafood, and seclusion with a top notch ocean front home; this place is perfect!

My recent stay was very memorable. We did alot of beach walking toward the public beach area and felt totally away from it all. The house was fantastic, comfortable and had everything we needed. I would plan an repeat stay there anytime in the future. I highly recommend it to anyone seeking a special place to rent. I would have appreciated a sign down below on the house pier discouraging non renters from fishing below me as it was disturbing at times. Overall I loved the time I spent there.

We really enjoyed our stay. The house was very clean and convenient. Everything we needed seemed to be there. The house is so peaceful being right on the water. We enjoyed the pelicans and dolphins. This is something we will definitely do again. Thank you so much for such a wonderful experience.

Dear Nancy,

I just want to take time to thank you for helping us to find this place to stay on our vacation this year.
 

The house and setting directly on the water was amazing. The family really enjoyed being able to wake up in the morning and walk out on the porch to eat breakfast; not have to cross a street to get to the beach, and loved being so close to the west end beach with the parasailing and jet ski rentals.

I could go on and on but I think you get what I'm trying to say.

Thanks again and we hope to see you next year.
