We have made several trips to Dauphin island in the last few years. This was the best house by far! It was equipped with everything you could need, plenty of towels, beach towels, linens, fully stocked kitchen, plenty of plates..even the bbq propane tank was full etc. We have used other rental companies before and this was certainly a nice surprise. We had a relaxing three nights, enjoyed the view, and recommend this house, this rental company and dauphin island to anyone looking for a totally relaxing quiet get away on a beautiful beach.

Best Vacation ever

Our stay at Dauphin Island, Alabama was awesome. My kids enjoyed it and want to go back next year. It was very relaxing and beautiful. The beaches were clean and the weather was perfect. We all thought this was the best vacation ever. My kid even mentioned she loved how is was just our family and not crowded on the beach.

Love the Beach
Posted on: 7/8/2013
This was our first stay at Dauphin Island. The beach house was just great! Everything seemed brand new and of such good quality down to the linens. The house is really large (bigger than the pics)and the location was perfect! Right on the water, we watched dolphins play behind shrimp boats, heard the ocean waves,watched the pelican and seagulls,saw rainbows,lightning far off, etc. Check-in was easiest we’ve ever had.Rental agency stopped by to make sure everything was in working order and were quick to address any of our concerns. Would definitely rent this house again!

The place is beautiful except for the cockroaches
Posted on: 8/14/2013
Dauphin island is beautiful. Yhe location of “Simple Pleasures” so close to water is perfect. The home itself is comfortable and spacious and it’s because of this that I’ve rated the property 3 stars. The home is showing signs of wear with peeling wallpaper in the bathrooms and stained carpeting in the master bedroom, but most disturbing are the cockroaches! I tried to contact the maintenance service several times regarding the cockroaches, I left several messages and did not recieve the courtesy of one return phone call! We stayed the first week of august, and paid over $300.00 per night, in my experience, I’ve come to expect a higher degree of care and cleanliness for such a price. My advice to the owners is to find another management and maintenance service!

It’s a lovely place except that we shared it with cockroaches.

The rate for this house during our stay was approximately $305.00/day during high season. It is a beautiful setting being so close to the water, sun and sky were magnificent! The interior is showing it’s wear in peeling wallpaper, dirty carpets and plenty of cockroaches! I tried to contact maintenance on several occasions regarding the cockroaches, but I did not even receive the courtesy of a return phone call. I had problems reaching the Management staff prior to arriving also. It seems that once you’ve paid for the place they’re done with you. My advice to the owners is to find another management and maintenance group that cares about those renting and the property! I gave the property a 3 rating, which I think is generous considering the cockroach infestation and lack of a response in dealing with them.

True to its name

Perfect for our large family of six kids from age 5 to 13. Close enough to watch the kids play from the deck and build sand castles in the shade under the house! Simple enough not to worry about the kids destroying something valuable and lovely enough for a pleasurable stay!

A good beach vacation
Posted on: 11/6/2013
We had an excellent week. The house is ideally located right on the beach with a quick access to the white sands of the Gulf. It was well furnished and ready for our enjoyment. All in all, we had a good time and there are no complaints whatsoever, but I would like to point out to the owners a couple of maintenance items that could use some attention. One of the folding doors to the master bedroom is either off the track or needs adjustment, two or three light bulbs need replacing and a couple of the eastern facing windows of the living room could use either curtains or adjustable blinds. Themorning sun puts a bad glare on the TV screen. (We like to watch the morning news) These comments are in no way of a complaining nature. We would go back again.

A peaceful and charming escape.
Posted on: 11/6/2013
As you know we have been vacationing in Dauphin Island for years.Its a easy destination from business life, New Orleans and the nature of the island is so beautiful.The week in this adorable house was perfect. The view of the Gulf from every corner , the private porch was very relaxing.The house is clean and offer every thing you need ;even an easy driveway and good parking under the house.If I had 2 suggestions:1/ I will buy wood furniture for the porch instead of your plastic chairs. When we came in ,I saw the screen damaged and I am sure they have been flying with the wind and cause the cut in your screen.2/ Built a little shade under the house to avoid to bring the beach stuff in the house and the sand ah…ah…! It’s hard to not bring sand when you have to put them in the house closet( even if it’s rinse well).We will rent this house again for week-end or week, it wa sthe perfect gateaway for us 2, we enjoy evry moment.

Awesome location but cockroach, stones and electrical wire in t
Posted on: 11/6/2013
The location is prime, on the beach, just a small patch of sand before the sea. But arriving with several dying cockroaches in the entrance and bedrooms is not fun, even if we were aware of that because of previous review. So thet seem to try to take care if the issue. It looks like there was previously a house closer onto the beach and sea because just in from of the house, there are remains of an electrical wire just where the waves break, and remains of big stone or concrete. Tricky with kids. We had to go into the water on the side. Also, don’t try to reach on the phone the rental management, their voice message box is full, and it seems to be a constant bummer. So we sent an email about internet access and got a respond next day.

Couldn’t ask for more!!
Posted on: 2/26/2014
We had never been to Dauphin Island before. It’s our new favorite place. Simpke Pleasures was absolutly awesome too. It was very clean and I’ve never seen a house so fully stocked!! Especially the kitchen. You guys thought of everything. Loved the deck outside and the fact that we were right on the beach. The kids had the run of the beach and all the shells. Sorry we came home with 4 buckets of shells the kids collected so I hope they left the next group some:)We had two families with kids and had plenty of room for all. Thank you so much for everything! We will definitely rent Simple Pleasures again.
