House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8) Dauphin Island West End Beach
About Kristen West
We are a fun loving family of 5. My husband (C.O.) and I (Kristen) are the proud parents of three girls. We live in Missouri and are excited to get to spend time in Dauphin Island at our home away from home and to share this home with others. We enjoy all of the activities that the Island has to offer and feel blessed knowing our girls will grow up in such a great environment on the Island making priceless memories. Dream Big LLC purchased this house in 2017

Why Kristen West chose Dauphin Island
This property is very special to us. My husband visited Dauphin Island when he was 16 and his family took a detour on their memorable trip to the Olympics in 1996. He knew then that he wanted to return to Dauphin Island and dreamed of owning a home there someday to share with his family. We think that you will find the house is uniquely situated on the Gulf with views of all the Island has to offer from the sunrise in the east, the Gulf to the south, the Sound to the North and the sunsets to the West.
What makes this House unique
Island Lure is located midway down the West End of the island and sits directly on the gulf side beach. It is a very short drive or bike ride to the far West End of the Island, which has lifeguards and various other attractions/vendors during the summer months. Additionally, it is only a short drive from the local grocery store, shops, restaurants, golf course, Estuarium and Fort Gaines on the East End of the Island. The house offers a wide variety of outdoor space to hang out and relax from a full sun porch on the south side of the house to the shade on the west side porch and all underneath the house. There are dual staircases allowing access to the beach from either side of the home. It has been professionally decorated to provide a laid back atmosphere for your stay so that you can rest, relax and recharge before heading back to reality.

Great location and layout. We enjoyed sitting out on both sides of the deck and listening to waves. Very nice and communicative owner.
Thank you, Randi, I try :)
Beautiful house directly on beach. Had an amazing stay of relaxation.
Everything went smoothly. Great communication and would definitely stay here again!
Thank you Sarah! Appreciate your feedback!
Very easy process and Kristen was so nice and quick to respond to any questions. House is very spacious and comfortable. A few light bulbs were out, appliances are dated but work fine. Back deck is rough so watch kiddos feet. Other than that it’s a great place, closet full of beach chairs, sand toys and umbrella! Very quiet and no crowds at all so super relaxing!
Thank you! Glad it was a good trip. We are planning to update the built in oven and microwave this year (purchased, just need a gap in reservations big enough to remove and install!) The gulf wind, water and salt are hard on decks and that is something we are hopeful to address in the next couple years... hoping to even extend the deck, tbd! Thanks for staying with us!
We enjoyed our week, the house was perfect for our big family. The host was very responsive and accommodating. There is a new house being built that blocks the view of the Gulf. Lot of construction workers and construction vehicles but they were friendly and accommodating. The new house is almost finished so construction should be minimal.
We had a great, relaxing vacation. Accommodations were just right.
Good access to the beach. Beach chairs/gear were definitely a nice touch. Fully equipped kitchen. Nice plentiful stock of towels. Master bath tub was very nice. Ocean view obstructed by new house build. Owner was very quick to respond. House was nice. Deck needs work. Dauphin island was super friendly and quaint.
