This open floor plan with its spacious area is perfect for 8 people or 2 (plus children). It is beautifully decorated and supplies the GREAT views and sounds of the Gulf Coast. This was our second time to rent the same place!!!
James F. Sep 2021
The house was amazing. Kitchen was well stocked for cooking the a/c was amazing. The view to the ocean was awesome. The hoses at the bottom of steps were great for hosing off after a day on the beach. The Vacasa staff was excellent with any needs we had. Tvs in every room with Roku we’re great I would definitely book this home again. Also all the beds were very comfortable. I think that is a big plus to have nice mattresses and pillows.

This was our second year in a row to stay at Waves or Grace! Well equipped kitchen, nice spacious floor plan, and tastefully decorated. The location on the island is perfect! We absolutely love this Beach House & plan to stay here again!
Melissa P. Aug 2021
Waves of Grace exceeded my expectations. The location was perfect and the house was beautiful. In the morning we would drink coffee on the deck and watch for dolphins. The house was right on the beach making it perfect to swim or just stick your toes in the water whenever you wanted. The attention to details did not go unnoticed. From the well stocked kitchen to the beach toys outside and garden hose to wash off sand, everything needed for a relaxing vacation was thought of. I would highly recommend this place for your next vacation destination.

We brought the family for one last trip before summer ended and it was absolutely perfect! The house was so beautiful, the layout was perfect and the beach was so peaceful!! In the mornings we were able to see dolphins from the balcony while we had our coffee. It was perfect!
Melissa K. Jun 2021
Dauphin island is our favorite beach getaway! This house was absolutely perfect for our growing family!! We will definitely stay here again!
Lynn D. May 2021
We have rented many beach home and Waves of Grace is by far our favorite. It’s well stocked, clean, beautifully decorated and the best ocean view ever! The beach is clean and it felt like it was our very own because we arrived off season. The weather was just perfect. Thank you for sharing your stunning home with us.
Angelica H. Apr 2021
The home was just as pictured and absolutely gorgeous! The kitchen had everything you would need to make breakfast, lunch, and dinner. There were towels, dishwasher, and washer and dryer on-site. There were limited beach towels and only two beach chairs. Also no beach toys, so you might want to bring your own of these items. There is however a really awesome swing under the house that we used literally every single day - might have been my kids favorite part of the house. That and the large tv in the living room. My husband and I were also extremely disappointed in the dining options on the island, which mostly consist of fried bar style food. The beach is also different than most of the other beaches I have been to in the gulf area, with rough waves. My son loved it for riding the boogie board, but be aware it’s not water you want to wade in. There is a cute kids park on the island and the Bird Sanctuary was beautiful! If you like to get out and walk, you could go there everyday. Overall, it was a lovely trip and the home was gorgeous. But knowing these things above will help you plan and come prepared.

We loved everything about this beautiful home. It was spotless when we arrived and vacasa was easy to work with. My family really enjoyed each having our own bedroom and bathroom, but also fantastic shared spaces for gathering. They deck overlooking the ocean was a lovely place to spend time relaxing, the large kitchen table was a great place to enjoy meals and games, and the large comfy couch allowed us to sink in and watch movies after the sun went down. You can watch the sun rise and set from the deck. Highly recommend this home!
Matthew F. Feb 2021
Everything was perfect. Highly recommend.
Lauren P. Feb 2021
This vacation home was absolutely Beautiful! We enjoyed how it was on the beach and could open the back door to listen to the waves 24/7.
Connie O. Jan 2021
The house was absolutely beautiful. It has a marvelous view of the water and the deck was plenty big for our family of 9 to enjoy the views. It was wonderful to sit and watch the dolphins and listen to the waves.
Navaz D. Dec 2020
This is the second year we have stayed at Waves of Grace for Christmas. The house is perfect for our two families. It is very comfortable, stylish and set up perfectly for togetherness and privacy. We highly recommend this house EXCEPT next Christmas because we are gonna be back!!!
Alicia H. Dec 2020
This house is by far the best house we have stayed in DI! Waves of Grace is absolutely fabulous. Very comfortable and fully stocked. A week is definitely not enough time to enjoy the peace and beauty of this island.
Jonathan M. Dec 2020
Great house. Perfect for our family getaway.
Sonya G. Nov 2020
Beautiful comfortable house!
Susan M. Oct 2020
This is the most perfect beach house for families! We had three families that included 6 adults, a six year old, 2 three year olds, and a four month old baby. The layout of this house was wonderful, its so spacious and we never felt cramped at all. The bunk room was great the the kids, they even provided a pack and play for the baby to sleep in. The huge porch facing the beach was amazing, plenty of seating for everyone! The furnishings and decor were great too. We will be back there to stay for sure!!
Barbara L. Oct 2020
The house and location was amazing. The staff at Vacasa was a pleasure to work with. We will definitely be back.
Tawnya F. Oct 2020

ALLEN T. Sep 2020
House and deck are awesome. Clean and felt right at home there. Recommend it highly.
Shea T. Aug 2020
This beach house has it all! We enjoyed everything about it; the amenities, location, decor, floor plan are all top notch. We wanted for nothing because the Property Mang Staff are excellent. We will be back next year! Thank you!
Patrick S. Aug 2020
This home was fantastic. The kitchen, dining and living spaces are much larger than they appear in the photos, providing plenty of space for two families with teenagers. The back deck looking out at the Gulf was my favorite place. The bedrooms were large and very comfortable. The bathrooms are well appointed- like a luxury home. Can’t say enough great things about the quality, the space, the location.
Jason E. Jul 2020
Beautiful house within steps of the beach. Very nice set up and well kept. It has all the amenities you need. Will be going back again!
Kristin D. Jun 2020
The home is beautiful and so welcoming! We couldn't get over all the details in the decor and the ample seating for dining and lounging - indoors and out. We appreciated the extra efforts of hospitality - tons of sand toys plus wave boards, kids beach chairs, a little plastic wading pool, high chair, pack n play, beach towels and ample bath towels! The view is fantastic, and you are literally right in front of the ocean, hardly a walk to set up camp along the shoreline. This was our first time to the island, and we really liked that it was laid back, not commercialized and crowded at all! We had a great time!!!
Stefani W. May 2020
We had a relaxing family trip in this beautiful home. Our 3 year old had a blast finding shells on the beach each day and the shaded swing area under the house was perfect for a quick break from the sun but still allowed our son time to dig in the sand! The house was very nice and the kitchen had plenty of things for us to comfortably cook the whole week.
Rachel L. May 2020
Convenient house with great amenities. Couldn’t be more convenient being in beach. Nicely appointed house and very easy to stay in. Only improvement would be quality of WiFi but other than that top notch beach house.
Katie J. May 2020
Everything was perfect! The house is gorgeous and equipped with everything. This vacation home has been well prepared to give you the best experience anyone could ask for.
My family will be returning for years to come.
Cherish V. May 2020
You can look at the pictures all you want, but they do absolutely no justice for how beautiful this place is. We are already planning another trip to visit again. This place has everything you can possibly need on vacation even with kids. Leave the high chair and pack n play at home because they provide that as well which is a major plus. I cannot say enough good things about our stay. We can't wait to go again.
Alexa D. Mar 2020
The house was exactly what we needed... we had two families (11 people) staying at the house and the space/configuration was perfect. The kids loved the bunk beds and the adults loved the en-suite bathrooms. Location is perfect, right on the ocean. Decor and amenities were great! Kitchen and laundry were well stocked. We will hopefully be booking again next year!!
Dennis W. Feb 2020
Great house and location
Marquita F. Jan 2020
This house is amazing and the owners went over and beyond with the decor and attention to comfort for there guest and they made sure they had everything needed in a kitchen.
Michael H. Dec 2019
The home was beautiful. My wife and I felt at home. The sunrise and sunsets were incredible. The location was also amazing. We already miss having coffee on the deck in the morning while watching the waves crash into the sand.
Daryl E. Nov 2019
This beach house was beautiful and very clean, we have never stayed in a beach house before and I can say we really don't want to leave this was an incredible place to unwind from our busy work schedules thanks for sharing your home.
Kea A. Oct 2019
This was absolutely The BEST BEACH HOUSE on the Island. The house had EVERYTHING! No need to bring anything! We walked in and the house spelled so fresh and clean. I'm OCD so this was major to write. The beds had brand new sheets which was a major plus and bed was so comfortable. The house was RIGHT ON THE BEACH. Best Location Ever! And the DECOR was Sooooo beautiful! Thanks for sharing your home with us!!! The Shorts! Atlanta,GA.
Y W. Sep 2019
Beautiful home steps from beach, had everything we needed with 3 babies. Would booked this home again. Thank you for a marvelous time.
matilda h. Aug 2019
Being directly on the beach was the main goal. Grandchildren loved the beach access. The house was beyond perfect. The theme was beach setting and had a great style. Although we came prepared this house had items still that we had forgotten. Netflix which the kids enjoyed and wifi was great. Thank you for the memories
Abby H. Aug 2019
Beautiful house and beach! We loved everything about Waves of Grace! Sooooo clean! Not one negative thing to say! We are just sad that we had to leave Paradise!

Amy M. Jul 2019
Waves of Grace is perfect in every way! It's beautiful. It's clean! It's well thought out and has well-appointed furnishings. AND it's just steps from the water! You will not be disappointed here! We had everything we needed to accommodate our family of 6 adults, 3 teens and 4 littles. A great time was had by all!!!!
Eric M. Jun 2019
The location was perfect, the house was beautifully decorated, and the layout was wonderfully accommodating.
Corey H. Jun 2019
This house is just as advertised! Right on the water, perfect for relaxing days on the island. It was the perfect location to celebrate my parents' birthdays. We watched dolphins swimming from the deck every morning. We enjoyed the shade and swing under the deck. House was well appointed and comfortable. We'll definitely be back!
Thomas D. May 2019
Waves of Grace is so spacious and gorgeous! We enjoyed it all so much. It was so perfect being right on the beach, the deck is perfect! Also loved having a table that can accommodate our whole family!
Kathleen L. May 2019
Loved the location. Almost private beach, minimal road traffic, quiet. The open floor plan in living - kitchen area. Nice bedrooms spaced apart with 4 bathrooms. Will go back next year
amy s. Apr 2019
The house was amazing and we really liked how close we were to the beach. We could sit on the porch and watch the kids in the water.
Karen C. Mar 2019
Being with family, playing on the white sand beach in front of the house, the gorgeous spacious house with large deck, quiet surroundings, beautiful laid back island.
Addie P. Mar 2019
Beautiful home & fabulous view!
brandon e. Mar 2019
The home was beautiful and well appointed. My sisters brought our mother who is battling leukemia down for a break. The peace and tranquility of this place truly was a clam in our storm. A place to just stop and breathe. With its position on the island both the sunrise and sunsets are spectacular. I captured some of the best photos of my life. 1 minor hiccup with the keybox but the vacasa maint. guy was there in less than 10 minuted from being called. Even though we arrived at almost 10 p.m.
Manager response:
We were so honored to host your family during such a special time, Brandon. We love knowing that this home provided serenity to you, and that you were able to capture these memorable moments in time. We would love the opportunity to host you again in the future!
