“Perfect Little Beach Cottage”
Reviewed July 27, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

This is a perfect little beach cottage. Nothing fancy, very low key. I will be booking again! Great for a weekend getaway!

Reviewed April 23, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Very good stay. Convenient location and very nice for the affordable rate. Ms Joy is wonderful to work with on booking! If you haven't been to Dauphin Island it's a great place to visit and get away from the hassle of typical beach trips. Ms Joy has the house and cottage in the back that's perfect for families. Will definitely take another trip in the fall.

“Dauphin Island Week”

Our stay at 1409 O'Hara Lane on Dauphin Island was very relaxing. It is a basic beach house. Joy took very good care of us. 5 of us with 2 dogs the first 2 days, then just my wife and me with our 2 dogs the next 3 nights before our son finished his camp at Sea Lab. Water was warm. I enjoyed kayaking
and wading along the bay beaches. The house met our needs and we hope to return next summer if not before.
The tree frog and geckos on the front porch were fun to watch at night. The gas grill on the side porch was nice.
We took our WI-FI hot spot and enjoyed movies and internet the entire stay.

We are happy you enjoyed Dauphin Island and the beach house. These guest stayed in the 2 bedroom house, not the 1 bedroom, since they had family with them. I am glad to know that you can use a Wi-Fi hot spot for your internet needs. Welcome back anytime. Thanks, Joy Whatley

Great place to stay. Just right for a couple. Loved that it was pet friendly. Very clean, comfortable bed, just what we were looking for.

“Great beach vacation”
Reviewed July 28, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Stayed Saturday through Wednesday. House was perfect for 2 people. Enjoyed the oversized tub to soak in. Kitchen not stocked great (no spatulas for instance) but had everything we needed. Enjoyed having a washer and dryer in the house. The porch was great with the porch swing...would have spent more time there but it was too hot this time of year!. Walking distance to the beach not bad....about 5-7 minutes. Nice quiet neighborhood with little traffic. Beds were comfortable and bedrooms had adequate storage space for clothes. Only complaint was we ran out of toilet paper on the last day; thought it would be stocked but I guess that was supposed to be our job? Not that big a deal, though. Shower was kind of small, hard to shave your legs for the ladies, but we managed! The water pressure was good.
