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.

A group of 9 women have been going to the beach, usually Fort Morgan,together for over 20 years. We decided to try something different and try Dauphin Island. What a good choice! The house we stayed in was perfect for us! We like to cook and the house had everything we needed. Enough pots, pans, serving dishes, plenty of plates, cups, glasses and utensils. There was also enough seating for all of us. The rental agency was top notch. They were very helpful and friendly! We will definitely rent from Island Resort Management agiain and hope to stay in Surfside again!

Our vacation at Surfside on Dauphin Island was perfect!
Jamie R.on 06/09/2018
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.on 06/02/2018
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.on 05/12/2018
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!!!

The best time is when you never want to leave.

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.

The house is perfect for family time. The kitchen has everything needed.
Michael M.on 09/29/2017
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.on 09/09/2017
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.
Pamela P.on 08/19/2017
House was amazing - right on the beach. Island Resort Management went over and above to ensure we had a great stay.
Becky B.on 08/05/2017
This was our second trip to Surfside and loved every minute. Can't wait to come back next year!
James H.on 06/10/2017
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.
Jamie R.on 06/03/2017
Surfside always exceeds our expectations. This is our 3rd time renting this beautiful beach front home and we already have it rented for next year. It truly works fantastic for our family, and everything about this home is perfect. From the spacious clean rooms, to the wrap around deck, even down to the additional ice maker in the kitchen there is nothing more that we could desire or need from Surfside. Always a pleasurable experience with this home and with Island Resort Mangement.
Dustin M.on 05/20/2017
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.on 04/15/2017
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).
Denese L.on 03/18/2017
Our family was looking for a larger home for our combined 10 family members to enjoy warm sand and ocean waves. Island Resort Management helped us with that search by suggesting Surfside, a lovely, bright home directly on the gulf beachfront. IRM were very accommodating and helpful. Our stay was perfect in every way. We left sun-kissed and rested. Thank you to the owners for sharing their home. ??
Jamie R.on 06/04/2016
Surfside is the absolute perfect home for a great vacation. From the spacious kitchen and living areas to the large bedrooms and comfortable beds it has everything you need for a wonderful vacation on Dauphin Island. This is our vacation home of choice, have stayed in it twice now and have reservations already for future stays. Definitely the best on the beach
Terry M.on 05/14/2016
Our week was great, the entire family was able to be with us to celebrate, we had such a great time, the house was awesome would definitely rent this one again.
Richard W.on 05/07/2016
Absolutely perfect in every way. Plenty of room for our family with 7 adults and 2 kids. Beautiful views from everywhere in the house. Very comfortable beds. Direct TV with plenty of channels just in case you came to the island to stay inside. Awesome wrap around deck. Perfect distance to the beach. Plenty of seating for outside. New grill which we used every night for 7 nights. Has an under counter ice maker which was a nice very nice plus. Make sure you check out the Fort, Sea Lab and the bird sanctuary as all are very cool things to explore if its cloudy and not a good beach day. They only thing I will advise you to bring is extra TP and some trash bags but we knew that coming in so it's not a big deal to me at all. BOOK IT NOW before I do because we WILL be back!
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
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.
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.
Island Resort Management has an amazing staff! We absolutely loved our house Surfside. Perfect fit for our family. The house was spotless and they provided everything we needed. Loved the huge windows that overlooked the ocean which provided the most beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Seeing the dolphins from our front deck was amazing as well.
Thank you Island Resort Management and the owners of Surfside for providing our family the most amazing vacation. We will definitely be back next year!
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
We had a great stay at Surfside! Everything in the pictures are exactly what you get. No surprises. We will come back!
Great location and comfortable home.
The house was great and as nice as on the pictures. Location was great too. The only downside was the cockroaches inside the house. The house needs pest control badly. The rental company agent was just "sorry" when I told her, not really professional. This should not happen.
our family had a wonderful week here...this house is by far the best house we've stayed in over the many years we've been coming...so comfortable. We are checking spring break dates for next year so we can stay here again!
My husband and I and five friends rented Surfside and we had an absolutely wonderful vacation. The house has a great location with beautiful views and a clean, wide stretch of beach that's uncrowded. The common areas of the house have lots of comfortable seating and the table is nice and big, for communal meals and playing board games. Only a couple of small downsides - the gas grill doesn't work very well, though it is functional, and the blender doesn't work at all. Still, worth a five star rating because the rest of the house is just great. Also, it was spotless when we came in, and the rental company was friendly and responsive. We couldn't have asked for a better stay, really. Highly recommended.
What a wonderful week on the island. The house was clear, perfect location and has the best deck. Please fix the blender before I return next year. :)
