Gulf-front home in a gated community w/ easy access to the beach & amazing views
Enjoy a gated beachfront community, and beautiful views of the water from the private screened-in deck. The large open great room and huge kitchen make togetherness ideal. A large, partially-covered deck has stairs leading down to the beach. Outside two of the upstairs bedrooms, there’s a screened porch that overlooks the waves below. Underneath the house is a cool, shady place for relaxing in a swing or hammock while the fish you caught today cook on the grill!
Island Sunrise is on the East end of Dauphin Island, which is the perfect place for bike riding. Explore historic Ft. Gaines, take a ferry ride across the Bay, learn about sea life at the local estuarium, or fish and play in the beautiful Gulf waters.

Enjoyed our stay with 5 adults and 2 kids. Great location on the beach. Walk down the stairs and you are in the sand. Close enough for walks through the bird sanctuary. House is big enough for everyone to enjoy. House was very clean on arrival. Kitchen had what you would expect for plates/utensils/glasses/appliances, etc. Some additional outdoor seating for the back deck would have been nice, but bring your beach chairs and you will be all set. The reviewer that mentioned the deck w/nails sticking up is correct. Some repair of the back deck is needed, but just wear your flip flops and you will be all set.
Second time staying in this home. Teenage kids and little ones all had their own space and was able to get around for our daily adventures easily with the all the bathrooms the house has. Love the beautiful views and how spacious the house is. Dauphin Island does not disappoint! Home had everything we needed for our week. Back porch needs some TLC due to nails being raised but we used shoes out there and had no problems. Can't wait to come back. Vacasa was also very easy to deal with and would recommend going through them for future vacations!
This home is on the beach..right out the back door. Large room's, livingroom, dining room, kitchen have open concept. This home is very comfortable and close to site seeing. They supply enough basic stuff to get you started until you can get to store to purchase what you want. More than enough room for parking.
It was a great house for our family celebrating our parents 50th wedding anniversary. I loved it was in a Gated, small community
Immaculately clean upon arrival. Very spacious and well laid out. We had 6 adults and 2 grandkids, could not have had a better experience! Brought a lot of cookware, but everything we needed was already stocked. Didn't use the grills but there were propane and charcoal (small) grills. Beach access right out the back door. I highly recommend this property.
Great location we had a great time. Suggestions would be to maintain the back stairs as nails are sticking up and we had to put shells over them so no one would have a nail go through their foot. Front door bolt is Very hard to lock/unlock. Rugs were left in drier and by the way makes a horrible noise. Kitchen pots/pans are horrible, either scratched up or rusted. Foods pieces in the silverware draw, hair on glasses. Pillows were awful...bring your own! Make sure to bring everything as they only supply 1-2 dishwasher tabs, bring a filter for the coffee pot! Also UPDATE your website! The pictures on there DO NOT look like it is NOW. The furniture is different and lost part of the dock during a hurricane! Also That so called gaming area is the landing upstairs where there is no room and no TV was even there. Oven only seems to cook on Top Rack, put anything in the middle takes forever. Ice maker on Fridge does not work properly.
We stayed here the end of July with 11 people (4 adults and 7 teenage kids ages 10-16) and it was perfect. Plenty of space, perfect location on the beach and so peaceful and relaxing. Great deck to chill on all day long, beach was wonderful, we took a tent for shade. You can walk each direction on the beach for at least 45 mins. each way. This property has been "lived in" but I have pretty high standards and felt very comfortable. Lived in= spots on carpet, scruffs on the wall, etc... Nothing that will stop a perfect vacation, nor anything I would consider surprising in a beach vacation rental. But, if you have really high expectations you might be disappointed. We would 100% go back, but have too many other places on our list. Highly recommend renting bikes for a day and explore the island, we did a fun island "hop" of all the local restaurants and it was really fun.
We had three families staying at the Island Sunrise home on the beach. Literally steps to the beach. We sat on the back deck and watched the dolphin swim by every morning. The house is not perfect but it is very functional for a large group with children. Luxurious, nope. Peaceful, exceptionally. Relaxing, for sure. Will I rent again if returning to the Island, definitely!! Great rental and will recommend to all.
This was a great family house. Plenty of room for all 5 grandchildren and 6 adults. Loved the house. Need a little care on some of the nails that had popped up on the deck. We will be back again next year!! Family loved it!!
I traveled with 6 adults and 5 children and this house was perfect! Amazing deck for hanging out on, fished from the beach, beautiful sunsets. Couldn't have asked for more. Exactly as descibed!
Relaxing, we took the whole family the second time. We will be back. We love Dauphin Island.
Our first vacation at Dauphin Island was a very good experience. The whole family enjoyed the stay. The house was beautiful and the layout was perfect. The location was right on the beach. The views were spectacular. The businesses we visited were staffed with friendly helpful people. There was minor repairs needed on our rental such as nailhead needing nailed in on the deck but nothing that lessened our enjoyment during our stay. We will definitely be returning.
Simply amazing! Loved the house, location, and quality family time!
We had the best time at this home and location. Private and very low key is what we were looking forward to. The home was great and fit us and our 6 kids perfectly. We had 4 teenagers and they were never bored and loved walking the beaches in the morning and at night. Being close to the bird sanctuary was nice because we were able to take walks. We were close to the Sea Lab and Fort Gaines and was able to experience them both during our stay . Home is conveniently located close to the ferry boat and we enjoyed our day in Orange Beach. Never knew how close they were! The water was amazing and loved seeing all the dolphins swim past all parts of the day. Property was just like the photos and we would love to come back again!!!!! Already talked to several people back home and all are attempting to book vacations!
We had grandparents , adult children and grandchildren. All enjoyed the home and had a great time! Nicely furnished and directly on the beach. Minor maintenance issues were handled quickly and graciously.
