4 couples stayed for 3 nights! Great house with all the comforts!! Will definitely come back!!!
Samantha C. Sep 2021
This was our second trip to DL and this home was perfect! The pictures dont do it justice of how big this house is. You are directly at the ocean and we collected the best shells we've ever seen. Will definitely be back to this exact house in the future.
KENDRA C. Sep 2021
We love the home, it was beautifully furnished in every room and such nice features. Vacasa is always focused on taking care of us on this trip which the island was recovering from hurricane Ida and on our previous trip where we were successfully evacuated by Vacasa before hurricane Sally came in. If it were not for them we would’ve been stuck on the island for the entire time. They went above and beyond educating us and getting us out of there safely to our cars!! We appreciate the Vacasa Dauphin Island them

This house has a great layout that suits our family very well! We love being right on the beach and love how much outdoor seating is available. The vacasa staff was great to meet any needs we had.
Manager response:
We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay! Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us.  We look forward to hosting you again!

This is our second year renting this home. It’s perfect for my children and grandchildren. We couldn’t ask for a better location and the people on Dauphin island are very nice and friendly.
Kelli K. Aug 2021
This house was amazing. Perfect for our family get away. The island is everything we want in a vacation! Small, friendly people, lots of fishing, and laid back! We will be returning yearly! 💖
Ileana T. Aug 2021
Truly enjoyed our week at Five o’clock somewhere!
The house was spacious and well appointed.
Steps from the water but still had plenty of beach to enjoy. Wonderful for our family vacation!
Tamara S. Jul 2021
This home is perfect. It’s proximity to the water was worth the trip alone. The home was super clean, the decor is fun and it really felt like home.
J.W. P. Jul 2021
Clean and comfortable. Right on the beach. The house could use a little TLC but it didn’t matter. Loved it. Loved the deck. Would stay there again
Scott M. Jun 2021
We enjoyed our week at Dauphin Island and It's 5'Oclock Somewhere. Overall the house was great and you can't beat the location - right on the water! The unusual high surf had washed away the bottom section of steps on the beach side, but they were replaced the very next day! Great work by Vacasa.

The only issues were the ceiling fans in the main living area didn't work and there were some kitchen things that were lacking- like a functioning bottle and can opener. There are areas of the house that could use some freshening up - paint and stuff, but that is expected with a home on a rental program. The deck railing overlooking the beach is also a little loose and could be reinforced.

The living area is huge and easily accommodated our group. The beds were all comfortable and there were plenty of towels and linens for our group of 10.

We loved our annual trip to the island and will be back to DI next year!
Manager response:
Hi, Scott! Thank you for letting me know about your visit. The owner will be replacing the ceiling fans in the near future. The can opener has been replaced, and we will address the deck railings. We hope to see you again!
Deborah W. May 2021
The location of this property is wonderful. Plenty of living & sleeping space, and the outside deck is spacious and comfortable. Our only problems this trip were the issues of the codes for entry weren't functional, and the ceiling fans in the living area wouldn't work. The local office staff were very prompt in response to get the issues resolving timely. Wouldn't have any reservation about recommending this property.
Steve G. May 2021
Great clean awesome place! - Thanks to the owners and Vacasa!! PERFECT place on the beach.
Nellie G. Apr 2021
The house was beautiful from the decor to the layout. It was very spacious and we loved the fact that we were literally on top of the beach and water. There was never an issue as to who controlled the television as each room had its own television. Linens and such was very well stocked.
Colleen K. Apr 2021
We couldn’t be more pleased with this house! It is perfectly situated on the beach, with clean sand and plenty of space. Linens were soft and clean, beds were comfy; the house felt clean and everything worked well (tv, showers, thermostat, washer/dryer, kitchen amenities). Natural light flooded the living area. Our first night we saw dolphins right out back! There were plenty of chairs on the deck. We did bring our beach tent and glad we did for extra shade. The kitchen had a Keurig and we brought our own pods. There were lots of pots, pans and some left over dry goods in the pantry. We brought two 4 year olds with us and they had a BLAST running circles around the deck.
Sarah J. Apr 2021
This is a great house for multiple families, the living room area is very big, the pictures do not do it justice. We were all pleasantly surprised as usually photos will make things appear bigger compared to reality. Not the case here. The house is a little worn, but I’d say typical for a place that stays booked up. Everyone that stayed from grandparents to grandkids were very happy and comfortable with this home. The deck is perfect (and big), even a covered area for an escape from the sun if needed. Vacasa is always top notch, no complaints and we will continue to rent their properties.
Jennifer S. Apr 2021
The setup of this home is terrific. 2 bedrooms and 2 baths on the west side and 2 bedrooms sharing a bath on the east end.
King beds in each adult bedroom were great.
Lots of sand - but wow - you couldn't get closer to the water.
Several condiments and starter items available in the pantry. Super helpful! We had multi-generational family here. It was great!
Michelle F. Mar 2021
We loved the view, how close the house was to the water and the cleanliness of the house!
Ted W. Feb 2021
Spacious and couldn't be closer to the beach. We have already booked for next year. Add a bottom step to the beachside stairs by next year. :-)
Carrie C. Feb 2021
Great place for our two families to spend a couple of days. The kitchen was well-stocked and the central heat worked well!
Sam B. Feb 2021
Great place! Perfect set up for our 3 couple winter get-a-way from the cold north. Kitchen was well appointed and the gas grill was well used since we ate at home due to COVID. Since high tide came under the house, I don't think we could have been any closer to the gulf!
Laura g. Jan 2021
It’s 5 O’clock Some Where was a wonderful retreat. Highly recommend for any time of the year. Everything was there and the property rental company was wonderful to work with. Dreaming about our next trip back.
Beth B. Jan 2021
Took a last minute winter getaway. I’ve stayed at several homes on the island and this is a short list of favorites. Location is great, right on the water. Plenty of kitchen supplies (soap/etc), toilet paper to get started! The layout is ideal for two families to share the home. Shower heads with a handheld shower head would improve the house (make hosing the kiddos off easier). But overall, I would absolutely rent this house again. Thanks for loaning us your home!
María H. Sep 2020
We enjoyed our location and access to beach. Great for two families. House was clean.
Keoni N. Sep 2020
My buddies and I rented the home during the last tropical storm to surf and kiteboard for the weekend.... can surf and kite in front of home too! Highly recommend this place!
Thank you!
Jennifer G. Aug 2020
Right on the beach. Great deck space with ample seating. Open concept house perfect for kiddos. Private beach space away from neighbors. Would defiantly book again!
Janet E. Jul 2020
Our favorite features: The house is located right on the beach and the large deck has room for everyone. We would definitely like to stay here again!
Sandra M. Jul 2020
We loved the location and everything about this house. It was perfect for our family vacation. The house was very clean and well maintained. We would love to vacation at this home again.
Gina W. Jun 2020
First of all, this home was spacious and situated right on the beach. It had plenty of extra blankets and pillows available, which was nice. Each room had a Smart TV with the ability for you to login to you Netflix or Prime accounts to watch your favorite shows and movies. The WiFi also worked well. The back porch also was well finished and very nice. I do wish there was a gate at the top of the stairs. We chased a baby around the deck constantly and a gate would have definitely helped. The kitchen was well stocked with pans, dishes, and bowls. The backdoor gave us a scare when our 15 month-old successfully opened the door. Luckily, we found a baby proof doorknob cover on another door in the house. We thought we were in the clear, but he got it open again (maybe it wasn’t closed all the way, I’m not sure but the door was very hard to close and none of the kids in our party were able to successfully close it without help) and took off running our the door to the deck stairs. We caught him in time, but a gate at the top of the stairs would have helped. We brought a baby gate, but the opening at the top of the stairs was too wide so it was useless.

We had trouble with the electric reclining couch. It got stuck with the legs out. The silverware is heavily tarnished and many of the knives are extremely dull. Also, we were hoping there would be a blender to use, but there was not one. I suggest being more specific at listing things available in the home on this page. We had trouble closing the doors by the washer and dryer, they kept jumping the track and we eventually had to just leave them open. The lock for the pocket door for the hall bathroom wouldn’t latch to lock properly. I also couldn’t get that bathtub to plug, which for us, with a baby, we really needed that.

All in all, we really enjoyed our time at this home and would definitely consider staying again. I think with a few upgrades and safety measures it would be absolutely perfect.
Robert M. Jun 2020
The house made our family beach getaway perfect! Plenty of great-sized bedrooms and bathrooms. The living area was spacious and comfortable. Beautifully decorated and the beach was just a few steps away from the back door. The huge deck was an added bonus that made our time there even more enjoyable! We definitely want to return again and again!
Virginia O. May 2020
This house on DI is amazing. Location is perfect and the house is wonderfully setup. Perfect for 2 families to share. We wi be renting every year!
Jake R. May 2020
Well-appointed and very spacious house with an absolutely enormous wrap-around deck for all to enjoy! Steps away from the water, and sweeping windows in the main room give you perfect vantage to watch all the outside activity. We'll visit again!
Robert L. Apr 2020
Beautiful big deck with lots of furniture. Outstanding views in both directions and only steps away from the beach and water. Lots of shells and pelicans, and a few dolphins as well. House had great amenities as well - Dish TV with Movie channels, grill, WiFi and comfy furniture. Would definitely return!
Larry P. W. Mar 2020
The house inside was great, plenty of room for six adults. Kitchen had all cooking equipment needed. The home, house keeping, was fine. The view was was great, home sits almost in the water edge.
Amanda B. Mar 2020
We loved everything about it! Our family with 5 kids and grandparents were guests. It had everything we needed and more: extremely clean, very nicely furnished, comfortable beds, full kitchen and plenty of towels! I can not think of one thing that would have made our stay better at Its 5 o’clock Somewhere. In fact, I was able to relax and not worry about what time it was at all.....
Annaleigh B. Jan 2020
Everything was perfect!
Ian B. Dec 2019
Great place - right on waters edge!
Leah M. Oct 2019
I love how spacious the house was! Nice big rooms with amazing lighting from the windows. We especially liked having so many bathrooms for each family to have their own! There were plenty of cooking utensils and pans/pots. I know most people like to eat out but we prefer staying out so it was nice having a somewhat complete kitchen! We were concerned about not bringing a tent to shade our kiddos during the day, but it worked out perfect because with the house being so tall we were able to just move our chairs below in the shade to get away from the sun!

Only downfall is that our checkout time was 10 which was a little difficult with the kids and having to pack my families things and my moms. We left a little later, but I don’t think it impeded anything with the house.
Terry W. Oct 2019
The location was perfect; directly on the beach with ample parking. There are plenty of chairs on the enormous beck and the structure was in good repair. The house itself is very tastefully decorated. The furniture is comfortable and sturdy. The three full bathrooms came in very handy after we spent hours playing in the waves and all needed to clean up for dinner. The kitchen had everything we needed, and I enjoyed the gulf view while cooking inside as my husband grilled on the deck. By far my favorite house on the island to date!!
Martha R. Oct 2019
We loved the close location to the water. The staff. Peyton and Lindsey were great. Loved the openness of the house. Thanks!
