This place was amazing. One of the best houses we have rented in the gulf. This was our first trip to Dauphin Island and we would rent this house again in a heartbeat. The house was extremely clean upon arrival and the beds were very comfortable. The owners have stocked this house well and the kitchen was loaded with appliances and dinnerware. That's a big bonus for us as we cook more than we go out. The wifi could use a better boost as it was super slow, but that could have been an issue due to the past hurricane. Kudos to the owners and Vacasa management team for a delightful rental. We can't wait to come back next year. The Brewer Family of Tennessee.

This was our first time to Dauphin Island, we enjoyed our stay, The house was very roomy. With Covid -19 restrictions we opted not to eat out, and the kitchen was well equipped with everything needed to made ours meals. The beds were very comfortable,
We liked having the Gulf only a few steps away.
We left 2 days before Hurricane Sally hit, we hope the island will recover, we plan to return someday, to the Island and Surfside.

This beach house is everything a family could want in a vacation home. We highly recommend it and will be staying here again.
Bonnie H. Jul 2020
Loved the layout. Lots of room to gather but also had the bedrooms on the sides for privacy.
Gwyn P. Jul 2020
This was a beautiful family vacation home. Very spacious with views of the ocean from almost every window. Couldn’t have been any more convenient to walk out the door and be right on the beach. The dolphins put on a show every day. Will absolute plan to stay here again.
James P. Jul 2020
Beautiful house, all the room and amenities we needed for seven folks plus a coupla' kids. Only twelve feet away from the water; that can never be beaten.
Diana D. Jul 2020
This beautiful house is literally just steps away from the ocean. We loved being able to hang out on the massive wraparound porch and underneath it, too, when we needed shade. The beach was so private that we left like we were the only ones there most of the time! Will definitely return!

Great house, perfect location.
This was the perfect house and location for a family vacation.
You basically have a private beach so no worries about crowds.
I highly recommend.

Perfect house for relaxing family time. Down the steps from the balcony, and you are at the ocean. For the family members that don’t need too much sun, seating on the sand under the raised house means no need for sun umbrellas. Sitting on the deck with the sound of the ocean waves while the dolphins are seen swimming is amazing. No waiting on elevators, as the parking is right under the house. Every bedroom has an ocean view. Perfect family vacation!!!

We have rented seven homes on Dauphin Island over the past several years. We rented this home twice because we liked it so much. It's a great location and the home is very clean and large.

If this isn’t five stars, I don’t what would be!

Location was the best. Beautiful house and spacious for 10 people
Alicia H. Nov 2019
This home is beautiful, so comfortable and situated perfectly on the beach to have incredible views from every direction. The large windows and wrap around deck will have you watch every sunrise and sunset this gem of an island has to offer. The layout was great to accommodate my husband, his mom and sister and my mom. This house will not disappoint. We hope to be back soon.

Surfside was perfect for our October vacation. There was ample space for all. Well equipped kitchen provided everything we needed - love the extra ice machine. We have stayed several times at Surfside and several times at other properties - this home is by far our favorite. Especially love that the wrap around deck is gated so that our dog is always safe. Will be back next year :)
Vickie B. Sep 2019
The house was absolutely immaculate with a fully stocked kitchen and top of the line appliances. It even has a freestanding ice maker! The beds were large & super comfortable. I have nothing but compliments to give! The outside was equally nice with a huge wraparound deck which allowed us to get out of the wind, which was quite strong all 4 days. Lots of lounge & deck chairs were available also. We used the gas grill one day and it worked well. Being directly on the beach was so nice!!! If I have a suggestion it would be in relation to the sand accumulation underneath the house. The picnic table was almost completely buried but we managed to dig it out! We didn’t see any info on when the garbage ran so that would have been nice to know. Once again, this is a wonderful rental and our family really enjoyed it!!
Cheryl C. Sep 2019
The home was in a perfect location and had all the amenities we needed for a wonderful trip
Craig I. Aug 2019
We just came back from a week at Surfside. It was fantastic. The location of the house was perfect. It is literally steps to the ocean. There were 8 of us and we fit good. The kitchen had all the pots and pans we needed. The ocean view from the living room was spectacular. We saw tons of Dolphins. Our dog was able to come with and it looked out really good for him as well. When we come back to Dauphin Island, I would love to stay here again.
Carolyn R. Jul 2019
Love the layout of the the the closeness to the water
Lisa E. Jul 2019
The location of this beach home is perfection! It is very well stocked with everything you’ll need to make wonderful vacations memories. Our second visit to this home did not disappoint. There are a few maintenance issues that need to be addressed but did not prevent us from thoroughly enjoying this beautiful home. It’s perfectly situated in the middle of the island, and even tropical storm Barry didn't damper our fun. Thank you for sharing your home with guests.
Bill L. Jul 2019
This house is in a perfect place for enjoying the sand and surf. Just steps from the waters edge. The house itself was also very nice. It had all the comforts of home and the kitchen was well equipped with all the necessities and way more. The ac also works very well, which is always nice for a summer trip down south. We stayed for the week of July 4th and they even had a great fireworks show on the island that lasted a full 30 minutes. I can't say enough good things about Surfside. It was just such an awesome place and we can't wait to go back next year.
Jamie R. Jun 2019
This is our 5th year staying in this home and it was wonderful as always.
Shannon B. Jun 2019
Surfside is AMAZING! The location of the house couldn’t be better...down the steps and you are on the beach. The layout inside the house gives everyone plenty of room to move around and not feel crowded. The sun shines in at just the right spots too but blinds are there, if needed. Ample amounts of linens, dishes and start-up supplies were made available too. Most of all, the place is super clean! Our family totally loved Surfside!
Michele T. Mar 2019
Our 2nd trip to DI, and Surfside was a lovely home for our week long stay. The home is equipped with everything you would need for time at the beach. Lovely, tasteful furniture for lounging, new appliances and terrific kitchen, comfortable beds, the home was immaculate when we arrived and we are neat freaks so that was important. We send our sincere thanks for sharing your beautiful beach home with us. We cannot wait to go back to DI & Surfside to relax and enjoy the wrap-around deck, and gorgeous sunsets again!!
Christine C. Sep 2018
We had the best time at Surfside! The place has so many widows, that no matter where you looked you saw water. The open floor plan is just wonderful. The house is very spacious. There were 8 of us and we had plenty of room. Would highly recommend staying here. I'm sure we will be back.
Carolyn R. Jul 2018
Love Surfside...fits our families needs..wonderful location..have been going to Dauphin Island for over 20 just a wonderful place and have been staying at Surfside for about 5 only complaint is the pots in the kitchen..we cook a big dinner every night and had to go out and purchase pots because most of the pots have rusty bottoms..and the wi fi is very slow ..we have already booked for next year and are looking forward to returning
Kevin O. Jun 2018
Our vacation at Surfside on Dauphin Island was perfect!
Jamie R. Jun 2018
We had another great vacation week at Surfside. The house is always immaculate and clean and well stocked. This was our 4th stay in this beautiful home and we always recommend it to our friends and family. Plenty of room for everyone with all the amenities that you would ever need. Perfect location right on the gulf, plenty of parking area and views that are so amazing. Great for multi-families as well.
Sonya C. Jun 2018
Surfside is an awesome vacation house, the great room is huge with 2 sitting areas and kitchen! Our kids and grands had the greatest week ever! It's steps from the beach and the house had a double hose to reach a small swimming pool we set up on the beach for the babies. The only thing that can make it better is the deck being refinished, we had a small problem with splinters. I will be leasing this house again on our next visit.
DJ J. May 2018
Surfside has the best views, on all sides - feels very private due to the fact both neighboring houses are set further back - this is a hop skip & a jump to the water which makes it feel like your private beach - wave sound on the deck is spectacular - the north view provides a glimpse of the beautiful bay waters - I packed a lot of unnecessary items that were provided which were lacking in other rentals - living and gathering areas are exceptional!!!
Maggie T. Apr 2018
The rental property was so much more than I would have ever expected. Well furnished, perfect location, enough room for family/friends/pets. Will definitely look at booking this home again.
Amy L. Mar 2018
Great house, very spacious. The wrap-around deck is great and there were plenty of lounge chairs. Beds were comfortable and it was nice having two living areas. Saw many dolphins and the sand on the beach is perfect. We plan to return.
Cheryl R. Feb 2018
The best time is when you never want to leave.
Ellen E. Jan 2018
This is by far one of the best houses we have rented. Here is my list, 1)close proximity to the water, 2)spacious, 3)nicely equipped, 4)beautifully decorated, 5)massive deck - gated to keep the critters in, 6)superb views of gulf and bay, 7)open floor plan front to back in the grand room, 8)allows pets, 9)lighted steps 10)lots of deck seating, 11)we could chat with our fishermen from the deck. Our ninth trip to the Mobile Bay area (gulf front), second time in this particular house, best house by far. Although January/February trip was cooler than we had hoped. Duh - right? We appreciated the nooks at each corner of the house to escape the cool breezes.
Mary Jean S. Nov 2017
The house is perfect for family time. The kitchen has everything needed.
Michael M. Sep 2017
We had 3 families which ranged from ages 78 to 4 and everyone enjoyed their stay. This was our third year on Dauphine Island. We have 2 fur babies in our family that come along also.
Alta S. Sep 2017
This w as our 5th year at Dauphin Island Alabama. The same rental (Surfside) through Island Realty. We are already booked for next year. We love it.
Becky B. Aug 2017
This was our second trip to Surfside and loved every minute. Can't wait to come back next year!
Carolyn R. Jul 2017
Have been coming to Dauphin Island for quiet a few years...never disappoints..we love the quietness,the small town atmosphere..the word "relaxing" applies to Dauphin Island
James H. Jun 2017
Stayed @ Surfside for a week in June. Loved the house!6 adults 4 children. Only thought as to what could make it better is a wind screen at the outdoor shower atea. If the wind is coming from the gulf, the shower blogs away from you out into the sand. You can't rinse off. Either a wind screen or a hand held shower.
Donnelle P. May 2017
We had a great stay at Surfside! Everything in the pictures are exactly what you get. No surprises. We will come back!
Dustin M. May 2017
Me my wife and three kids and friends stayed for a week and didnt want to leave. Everything you could ever need down the little things are in the house. Very impressed!
Donna J. Apr 2017
Best beach house ever...we even had an Easter egg hunt on he beach for the grandkids. Also, had a couple of treasure hunts.

Only complaint; could use new pots/pans. I even made a trip into Mobile to Walmart and purchased a large skillet (left it there for future guests as the ones that we supplied were basically unusable).
Brian P. Mar 2017
Great location and comfortable home.
