This was the perfect weekend get away for my mother and father in law they enjoy the stay very much!

No this house is not right on the beach, However this is the next best thing. Perfect location, perfect views, and still feel the ocean breeze while sitting in the hot tub on the huge deck.
Timothy & Catherine N. Dec 2021
We loved everything about it! Best location on that sugar white sand. The house was super spacious! Awesome beach front hot tub! Fully equipped kitchen and great table for family games. We love the sun beaming through the window sunrise to sunset! Our dogs had a blast romping around on the deck!
Timothy & Catherine N. Dec 2021
We enjoyed every minute of our stay at the Picture Perfect! The house is beautifully decorated, spacious and super clean. The view from the house is amazing and the neighborhood is very quiet. We would highly recommend Picture Perfect to our friends.

Nice house on the island

Beautiful large home in a gorgeous and quiet location. Flexible sleeping arrangements for our family with young kids with each room having a bathroom and tv. Loved the hot tub on the deck facing the Gulf. The under the home parking was great right near convenient outdoor storage daily for our beach wagon (we were grateful for boogie boards in there we borrowed!). Great, private outdoor shower and hose upstairs for washing out our cooler and the sand before entering the home and the hot tub. Great ice maker in the freezer and the full kitchen was perfect with plenty of dishes and pots and pans. Enjoyed the counter seating and the large table in the beautiful grand room. Full sized washer, dryer, and dishwasher which we used often. WiFi was great and when we needed to reach Vacasa to have it fixed, had immediate and great service at all times of day. Can’t say enough wonderful things about the location! Beach just across the street through a beachside parking lot was convenient because of the pavement and not having to walk through someone’s yard. We were able to camp out daily on a quiet spot on the beach and marvel at our sandcastle staying the whole week because of how private the beaches really are. Our first family trip since the COVID pandemic and we felt very safe. My young kids loved their first trip to the beach and we loved the hot tub with the kids asleep just right inside the home. We’d definitely stay here again!

The house is a beautiful. I have never rented a beach house before. The house inside was perfect. Everything was so clean & neat. It had everything you needed. It was so close to the beach you see it from the back porch. We brought a beach cart with our stuff & walked over a small road & we we were on the beach. The house has an outdoor shower & a storage room that had a tent, water stuff, toys & a beach cart. We could see dolphins throughout the day. In the morning you could sit on the back porch & see them following the fishing boat. When we were swimming it was like you were swimming with the dolphins, because they were close. The beach across the house was private & quite. Dogs are allowed on the beach across from the house. The island doesn't have a lot of things to do or restaurants. It's a relaxing vacation place. I loved it. The house & island were perfect. Vacasa was very organized and was very clear on trip rules for the house/ beach which was hardly anything. We are definitely going back to this house. The kids loved it too! They didn't want to leave. It was a dream come true. Best vacation ever!

The house and views are great! Just a short walk to the beach and the hot tub was a bonus!
Timothy & Catherine N. Jul 2021
The house is very spacious. The beach is just across the street, with no long haul for all of your gear. We cannot wait to go back.
Katie W. Jun 2021
This home was the perfect size for our extended family vacation and the proximity to the beach was awesome. The hot tub made for a nice bonus as well.
LaDonna T. Apr 2021
Overall pleased with home. It’s not directly on beach, but a quick walk away. Well furnished and beautiful decor. One of the beds needs a new mattress and has a dip in it, but we moved to another bedroom and had no issues with that mattress. Hot tub was great. Plenty of space to park at home, some beach toys provided, outdoor shower a plus.

Beautiful home!
Yale M. Feb 2021
The house was located in a great spot with views of the ocean on both sides. Newer home with plenty of room for a larger family. Hot tub, handicap elevator off deck to avoid stairs & great decks. I highly recommend it!!
Taddy N. Feb 2021
The house was beautiful and comfortable. The maintenance team was quick to respond when the weather got crazy and dislodged the grill from the deck. We had no problems and our stay was exactly what we wanted. We would stay again in any Vacasa home!
Timothy & Catherine N. Dec 2020
This place is truly picture perfect!! The house was spotless. The kitchen had everything we needed. The views!!! We sat on the huge porch and enjoyed views of the white sands, dolphins jumping and birds diving! It's just a few steps to the beach where we spent the days relaxing until the sunset. Then we finished the day in the huge hot tub! The big table was perfect for family meals and card games. There is so much more I could say. We are definitely going back soon. Thank you for sharing this lovely home with us!
Mike K. Dec 2020
This home was immaculate!!! There was a hick-up the first night in a different home, so we were moved to "Picture Perfect" & that is just what it was!!! The staff was extremely attentive to whatever needs or wants that we had. It was so VERY NICE to get away to some Peace & Quiet. There's not a lot to do this time of year on Dauphin Island however, we did manage to do some sightseeing and a little shopping. Everything we purchased was handmade in or around the area. We had a great time. Thank you so very much for the relaxation.

This house was surprisingly spacious, very clean, and well stocked. We loved the effortless walk to the beach across the street. Every view from the front and back porch was breathtaking. Kids enjoyed the hot tub while the adults enjoyed the views. Great house at a great location!

So first off, this place is absolutely beautiful. Ive stayed in a lot of condos and this by far was the most spacious, and homey.
We stayed during a hurricane. Not our smartest decision. My family and I are from Tennessee so we are used to tornadoes and high winds but nothing prepared us for these type of winds. I thank God for such a well built condo. The living room is all windows, which concerned me, but like I said, that condo could not have been built better. I felt so safe.
Lastly, thank you Vacasa. I rarely do reviews but your team was incredible. They stayed connected with me and made sure we were safe, and had everything we needed.

10/10 recommend
Jennifer H. Oct 2020
We loved this house! Very spacious and clean. It’s not directly on the beach but the walk across the street is nothing. You’d do the same walk from a condo on the beach. You could see dolphins jumping from the house! The sunsets were amazing from the porch. There was more than enough room for 10 people and a golden retriever. This was a perfect place to stay even after hurricane Sally. Dauphin Island is amazing.
Donna M. Aug 2020
This house and location was perfect for our family vacation. It was very COVID safe with no crowds. The beach is just right across the street and just a couple of minutes away. The only issue we had was with ants, even a few decided to come home with us! Be aware of the washing machine sounding like it was going to take off! This house is very spacious and we loved that everyone had their own bathroom! We are already talking about renting this house for our beach vacation in 2021!
Manager response:
We will do our best to get rid of those pesky ants. Thank you for staying with us!

Home is clean and spacious with tasteful decor. Beach is very close (walkable with children).
Kathryn F. Jul 2020
We loved the privacy of the bedrooms and the wide open living room/kitchen area. We spent most of our time lounging on the back porch and in the hot tub if we weren't at the beach.
This was a perfect getaway for us, our kids and grandkids. I loved the private access to the beach right across the street. The grandchildren loved catching crabs at night. The hot tub was perfect for the rainy days or nights. The beach felt secluded and private. The house was perfect for our family of 10, including 3 children, ages 4, 2 and 1. The picnic table below the house was perfect for the rainy days for the children to play in the sand without getting rained on. Rain or shine, there was plenty to do with this house!
We enjoyed staying here. Thank you for a picture perfect family getaway!
Glenn A. Jul 2020
Picture Perfect was just that! The decor was appropriate and Comfortable. A bathroom for every bedroom was superb. The kitchen was accommodating and created a great space for our family. The back deck was spacious with a great view with easy access to the beach. The outdoor shower came in very handy. We are already planning another visit to Picture Perfect!
Thanks for the Memories!
The house is a 2 minute walk to the beach front. We had the best time catching crabs at night and even left our nets and boogie boards for others to enjoy. The hot tub was amazing almost every evening. Be sure to bring your own laundry soap, trash bags, and dish washing pods. The WiFi didn’t work for half of our trip but we didn’t mind. We didn’t get great cell phone signal either but again- isn’t mind! This trip is just what we needed and Dauphin Island has our hearts! Be sure to bring frozen meat because the closest grocery store is dollar general that doesn’t have produce. Overall an incredible trip and 10 of us enjoyed every second. Storms move quick, naps are a must, and we enjoyed every single second!

This home was absolutely beautiful and perfectly situated with amazing views. It was well stocked with cooking supplies and so clean! The bonus was the awesome hot tub with a view

Picture Perfect was absolutely perfect!
Lee V. May 2020
Had a wonderful stay.
Lara E. Mar 2020
Hot tub in March was perfect and to a full day at the beach! Well stocked kitchen for cooking just bring salt, pepper and coffee along with your other spices and condiments. Don't forget to stop at farmers market and fish market on way in. Seashells galore and gorgeous waves will bring our family back soon!
Robin A. Mar 2020
Beautiful home, great location, comfortable, well appointed. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Will book this location again! My only notice to future renters is that while the kitchen has great cook wear/dishes if you plan to cook be sure to bring all ingredients with you: salt, pepper, sugar, spices, there is nothing stocked.
Tyler H. Mar 2020
Loved the beach across the street, hot tub was great for the family and kids, and the house was better then expected! Getting ready to plan a family reunion here again, very soon.

The views, the decor, and the hot tub.
