Kowabunga is a great Dauphin Island Beach house with many amenities, including a small, private heated dipping pool, a Game Room, roof-top deck and great Gulf Beach location. No wonder it’s one of our most popular Dauphin Island beach rentals!
This pet-friendly Gulf-side elevated beach house sits just one house back from the Gulf, and so it has tremendous views! The rooftop crow’s nest offers a panoramic view of the island. This home also has a small Game Room, which is great for those times that the weather isn’t cooperating! The game room is also the 4th bedroom that has a sleeper sofa and a bunk bed.
This elevated, two-story home has a Master Suite on the first level with a private full bath. There is also a half-bath off the kitchen. The Great Room is large, open, and has a flat-screen TV over the fireplace. The Second Level has three bedrooms, two of which share a “Jack and Jill” half bathroom with shower. There is a third, full bathroom on this level, and a Game Room (great for night time, or rainy days). The rooftop has a “Crow’s Nest” which provides panoramic views of the Island.
This house may be Pet-friendly, with prior written permission.
As with all of our Dauphin Island Beach Rentals, all linens and towels are provided, WIFI, along with a fully-outfitted kitchen. There will be a starter pack of toilet paper, paper towels, and trash bags; please plan on bringing more for day 2 ;). A great beach vacation is waiting on you! Pool is heated October 15 thru April.

Comments and Reviews from our Guests
Michael Dixon says
Great value and location
great location and value. we will probably rent again!!! lots of room. plenty of bathrooms. Quick response on maintenance. wifi worked great. Needs a good deep cleaning. oven glass top was broken. Air conditioner filter needed to be replaced really badly, air got warm on Friday night. Sink in upstairs bathroom was clogged. grill had been misused by a previous guest. It was new, but someone had cooked on it. It smoked up the whole downstairs. Unable to use all week.. Its a lot of stairs for people with mobility issues, but a really great home overall…
Thank you for staying with us and for the review. We have replaced the stove top and would definitely encourage you to reach out during your stay anytime there is something that needs attention. We did follow up on the items you left in your reveiw. Thanks again and hope to see you again.
How large is the pool?
4′ x 8′ and 48″ deep.
Does this rental allow the apparent easy access to the beach or do you have to go elsewhere?
This property has direct access to the beach. Thanks, DIBR
How fast is the WiFi? Unfortunately I have to work while we’re hoping to be on Dauphin Island. And how fast is cell phone service if I were to use a cell phone hot spot? Thanks for your time!
The home is serviced with radio-based internet (as is most properties on the island at this point). Internet speeds will vary, typically 10 to 30 MBS. Cell phone reception is typically one to two bars on the island.

Very interested in this house for the last week of June 2022. Also was wondering if you have any idea about the two connected houses right in front of this one? We will be have a family reunion and wanted to be close to everyone, so will be renting several houses. Also where do you find promo codes for discounts. Thanks todd
The houses in front of you are called Beach Music (https://www.dauphinislandbeachrentals.com/vacation-rentals/beach-music/) and Rainbow’s End (https://www.dauphinislandbeachrentals.com/vacation-rentals/rainbows-end/). You might also consider Knee Deep (https://www.dauphinislandbeachrentals.com/vacation-rentals/knee-deep/) which is across Shell Ct from you. To receive promo codes, you would just need to sign up for our emails. We typically do not have promos for summer, however.

How rough is the water here and does it drop off like the west end public beach
The water would be the same as you have experienced on West End Beach. The size of the waves is dependent on the weather. It can be relatively flat or very large if there is a storm. The Bay Side is much calmer if you are looking for that type of experience.
Amber Rohling says
Do you drive on the sand to get to the house? Or do you have to park somewhere and walk?
You can park in front of the house. The driveway is sandy, but there is a base of crushed concrete. Two vehicles max.
