Paradise on Dauphin Island! Great Views! Pet friendly!
This one has it all! Step into "Set Sail" with its high ceilings, open floor plan, tons of windows drenching the house with the Island's natural light. Unobstructed, panoramic views of the emerald waters of the Gulf of Mexico to the south, and the gentle waters of the Mississippi Sound to the north.
The Great Room offers two separate seating areas divided by the kitchen and dining area. On the Gulf side, gather around the comfy seating and fireplace. On the Sound side, you'll find an ample, L-shaped sofa, a large coffee table stocked with lots of board games, and a TV with DVD player and DirecTV. The functional kitchen offers plenty of prep area for the cook, a stainless steel double sink, dishwasher, side-by-side refrigerator with ice and water, microwave, range/oven, coffee maker, toaster, blender, electric can opener, and all dishes, glasses, pots/pans and silverware. The breakfast bar seats 4 and the dining table seats an additional 8.
The four bedrooms flank the house. On the Southeast, the Gulf side bedroom offers a set of bunk beds and a sleeper-sofa, with a DVD player/monitor for movie watching - perfect for the kids. The Northeast Sound side bedroom is furnished with a queen bed and extra seating. TVs with DirecTV are available in the two West bedrooms which also have queen beds. Between the bedrooms, guests will find Jack-n-Jill bathrooms with separate single vanities. In addition, there is a 1/2 guest bathroom. Each of the four bedrooms has its own french doors that open on to the wraparound deck. You also have a utility room with a washer/dryer.
Enjoy the covered, wraparound porch with views from every angle and seating on both Gulf and Sound side. The Sound side porch is screened in and great for napping in the Island's breeze. The lower Sound-side deck with bench seating is perfect for tanning. There is a boardwalk to your own private pier/pavilion with hammocks and steps down to the sand. You can fish in your own "backyard" or swim there, if you do not want to make the short walk right across the road to the Gulf Beach (where the waves are). Underneath Set Sail, you will find a charcoal grill, picnic table and swing overlooking the Mississippi Sound waters. Perfect for the cook who needs company on the sand while grilling.
Linens are provided, however you will need to bring your own beach towels. HVAC with ceiling fans inside and out. Parking for 4 cars under the house. The house is graciously stocked with books, games, and DVD films. Sleeps 10. Bring the 4-legged members of the family for a small fee. Two camping cots with camp mattresses are great for kids if they want to sleep on the screened-in deck.
Amenities: WiFi, private pier/pavilion, pet friendly, washer/dryer, DVDs, charcoal grill, a beautiful beach house!

The house was just what we needed to prepare for my father's 80th birthday party in Bayou la Batre. Location was great for us and we explored the entire island. The living area is nice and open. The beds could have been more comfortable and the linens were not great. Corners and baseboards were dirty and there was dog hair under the couches. Doors need a little work because of salt air. Great spot that I would rent again.

This place is a wonderful hidden treasure. It is great for large families. The gazebo in back with hammocks is wonderful for relaxation as well as the 360 porch around the house. My large family had a wonderful time the week we stayed there. House is fully equipped with kitchen and washer/dryer. (although some of the pots in kitchen were rusty)
The reason 4 of 5 stars is because 2 of the beds were covered in what I assume/hope was dog hair and we had to change the sheets the day of arrival. Plus the beds were not very comfy.
