Bedding details: King: 2 | Full: 2 | Twin/Full Bunk: 2 | Sleeper Chair: 1
Pelican’s Perch is a large 4 Bedroom Beach House directly on the Gulf of Mexico beach. This 2300 sq ft home sits on a private Gulf of Mexico half-acre lot with a two-level gulfside deck to enjoy the great views. This property has it all inside and out. There are 4 bedrooms. Each bedroom has a flat-screen television and access to a bathroom. There are 2 master suites with king-size beds; 1 master also has a twin pull-out for additional sleeping. Each master has sliding glass doors to access the gulf side deck. The 3rd bedroom has 2 full-size beds. The kids’ retreat has 2 duo bunks, a double bed on the bottom and a single on top. The kitchen is a dream with lots of counter space and is fully equipped with everything you need to cook a family dinner at the beach. The kitchen also comes with a regular coffee maker as well as a Keurig. There is a wet bar off the dining area equipped with a small sink and a mini-fridge. The dining area has a long table that will accommodate 10 people. There is additional seating at the breakfast bar for 5 people. The living room is beautifully decorated with lots of comfortable furniture to read your favorite book, watch tv or relax with the family while enjoying the gulf views. Out on the deck is another dining table that seats 6 people. There are outdoor lounge chairs to enjoy the sun, on the sun deck, or plenty of seating in the shade, on the covered porch. There is also a gas grill.
This property is on a highly desirable through lot. This part of the island only has one row of houses on the gulf side, giving you more privacy and a more personal beach experience. These are rare and rent fast!

On a scale from 1 to 10 this house is a 9.5! Location, location, location! Walk off the back deck and in only a few steps you toes are in the water! The covered back deck is perfect for coffee in the morning or dinner in the evening. We stayed in another house where by 8am the deck was too hot to sit on or enjoy. The interior of the house was amazing. The large dining room table was great for games and eating. I can not give the house a 10 because of a few very fixable issues. For a house that sleeps 15 the kitchen needs to have more than one skillet (makes cooking some things a real challenge). The pillows were WAY too soft, it was almost like not having a pillow at all, unless you doubled it over. The previous renters left some unbagged trash in one of trash cans and I guess the garbage collectors only pick it up if it’s in a bag. After some rain and then some heat that trash can was nasty. At least on of the toilet seats was very loose. The vertical blinds going out to the deck from the living room had a few blinds off and rolled up under one of the chairs in the living room. I know all of these are petty complaints, but it does prevent a 10 out 10. Bottom line, THE HOUSE IS AMAZING. Word of wisdom to any going to Dauphin Island is get your groceries some where else other than the island. $10 for Blue Bell Ice Cream!

Beautiful home and a perfect location.
The communication provided before, during, and post trip was outstanding. The office kept us informed of Hurricane Zeta. Available parking area, choice to stay or leave. We chose to stay to mark it off our bucket list. Beautiful beach and shell collecting before and after Zeta. The house withstood a Category 2 Hurricane. At no time did we feel in danger. Adam and Teri you guys did a wonderful example of customer service. I’ll give you guys a 10!
Thank you so much for staying with us and the nice review! We are so happy you enjoyed your stay! Adam,Terri and the whole team at Dauphin Island Beach Rentals

This is a beautiful home! We had a very enjoyable two weeks. There were minor details, however, nothing worth mentioning. The kitchen had every thing you could possibly need (including several fry pans and also a very large stock pot). The wet bar with the additional drink fridge came in very handy. The bedrooms were plenty big and well appointed. Same with the bathrooms. Lots of extra towels plus travel size amenities. The stacked washer/dryer were a challenge for a short person like me, but, the hubbie was able to see what I couldn’t. The living room had ample seating for the number of people the house could hold, a problem we’ve had with other rentals. The deck had plenty of furniture including lounge chairs, table and chairs for six and even rocking chairs. It was rather cold while we were there (Jan) so we didn’t use the deck quite as much as we would have otherwise. It was still nice though to be able to step out there when something exciting was happening. Dolphins swimming by almost every day, shrimp boats, large container vessels, planes, etc. We enjoyed the home so much we have rented Pelican’s Perch for a month this coming winter. Have absolutely fallen in love with Dauphin Island and this home just made it all the more special. This was our second extended trip with many day trips in between. Cannot recommend this home highly enough. As I said, we are renting it again so that should speak volumes.
Thank you so much for staying at Pelican’s Perch! So glad you enjoyed it and hope to see you again! ~Dauphin Island Beach Rentals (DIBR)

Four families/ten adults with four kids fit comfortably
Why do we come to the beach? To see the Gulf and stay in pleasant accommodations. Let’s maximize that opportunity with a full width, covered deck adjacent to a full width uncovered step-down deck.
Tip for this rental: Place the small kiddy pool at the first landing. As swimmers enter the deck steps they can rinse off majority of the sand. Helps keep the floors much cleaner and the stay more pleasant. A quick empty/refill every morning makes the transition from beach to sand-free living much simpler.
Thumbs up for the new decking addition @ the front steps! Transporting all the food/beach paraphernalia from cars to rental was a much better process this year than last.
So glad you guys enjoyed Pelican’s Perch! You were awesome guests and thanks so much for taking the time to write such a thoughtful review!

Is there a bathtub in this unit?
Yes, the common bathroom has a tub. The three private bathrooms are all shower only.
I am a bit confused between the description and the photos. The description says there is a lower deck but this is not seen in any pictures. Also, there are only three of the four bedrooms pictured.
The back deck is a two-level deck. I have reworded the listing to make it less confusing. Thanks for letting us know about the missing picture. We will get a new one uploaded as soon as it’s empty!
