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.

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!

My family and I go to the beach every year. This year I brought my new husband's family and they had a great time. My time was ruined from the moment i started unpacking. The house was dirty, it needed a deep clean and updating. The pots and pans couldnt be used, the drawers in the kitchen were filthy. The blinds in the kitchen and one in the upstairs bedroom were broken. And the bed in one room was slanted!!! There were only 4 chairs on deck for 10 people, and no table, no lounge chairs for the sun and one chair on the upstairs deck was broken. There was no hammock as stated...and under the house was trash. My family was happy but I was not!!! 4000 dollars is a lot to pay for a place this bad. The upside...i called and emailed the property manager and they fixed what they could while we were there, and were very pleasant. BUT what makes this place their money is NOT the house, but its place on the beach. So if u dont mind a house in desperate need of an update and a deep clean, then u will love the beach...and the island is amazing. But this way!!!

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.

Our entire family of 9 persons,consisting of 2 grandparents, 2 children and their families stayed at Island Sunrise for a week beginning June 25, 2016. Although the travel time was much more than anticipated, the house was exactly as described on the website to our delight. The layout was perfect for our family, especially the open living area. The decks were great and thankfully they had been screened so that our little one, age 1, could not fall through the railings. The beach area was larger than anticipated after the reviews that we had read. The water temperature was extremely warm, almost to the point of not being refreshing and was pretty dirty with large globs of jellyfish-like balls everywhere. Other than that, our stay was fantastic. I do believe there needs to be more eating establishments as the selection for our night out was minimal. We had a couple of issues that were resolved in a timely manner with the house; cable was out for a time and the grills were pretty dirty; management responded very quickly. We would definitely recommend this property to friends and relatives.
The location was great, the house was nice but it was not as expected, they need updated pics, main living room had faded denim sofas, pics posted showed very pretty yellow and blue stripe sofas. bedrooms were different than pics also. A light had been broken outside upper deck when we arrived and they sent some young teen guys to clean it up and they swept it and it fell on below deck and several of us got glass in our feet on the 1st night. Air unit downstairs was not working 1st night but they did repair the next day. 2 lounge chairs on upper deck was completely broken and laying on floor of deck and a refrigerator drawer was broken and made it hard to use it and drawer below it in frig. We reported all these things upon arrival and at departure. I would recommend this house to a friend but would tell them to ask about all these issues before booking.
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!
The house and surrounding area was great. The house was great with plenty of room and great views, most of the time spent at the hosts and not on the beach was spent on the giant deck overlooking not the beach. Not too far at all from plenty of activities away from the beach. Kitchen could have been stocked a little better as far as pots and pans and the beach wasn't very large (beach erosion).. if I'm nitpicking. Would and most likely will return.
A wonderful property! Lovely house, very comfortable and spacious. Huge deck with hammock, much enjoyed by all. Our family of 7 adults and 2 children loved our week there and hope to go back. Basically has a private beach, the water was very warm. The boardwalk makes it so nice to get to the beach. Island Resort Management staff are easy to work with. We loved it!
