The house was a little more run down than we expected, but nothing major. We arrived on a Sat. Great stay until Monday morning road was 6" underwater. IRM team said "it's just high tide". By 2p it was 8". They would not evacuate. We left on Monday anyways and by Wed the road was 4 FEET under sand and water and electric were cutoff from West End. Was VERY disappointed IRM AND local government didn't want to protect guest. Our NEW Mini Van would have been totaled. Sand was not cleared until following Monday.
Positive note everyone at IRM was very friendly when I spoke with them.

Island Escape is the perfect house for families to enjoy a week together. The open floor plan on the first floor is great for eating together.

We really enjoyed Dauphin Island and being able to use this house makes the trip even home enjoyable. My only note would be that it was not as clean as the last time we rented it. There was sand everywhere, wet towels in the washer, the tub was dirty, the outside of the refrigerator was really dirt as was the inside kitchen trash can. They weren't a big deal - but thought you would like to know. We will be back in 2020 :) Thank you for helping make our vacation great!

Wqe love coming to DI every year and we are always staying in different house. This how was great and we loved it. We had a few things that could use some minor improvements.
Please fix the tile at the sink. I know the rug was covering but everyone was tripping on it so we moved it. Then everyone was stabbing their toes with cut tile pieces. There was a big pile of trash under the house that could go away for a nicer area, but it wouldn't stop us using the house again. Other than that it was great.

This home was perfect for my husband and me, our three grown children, son-in-law and two small grandkids. Everyone had their own bedrooms and bathrooms. The house was beautiful, spacious, modern and well-equipped kitchen, wrap-around deck so we could always get out of the wind or into the sun. The beach area right off the house is gorgeous.

This is not a place to come and do serious shopping or hanging out with big groups... not what I wanted anyway so it was nice - peaceful - great walks along the beach... food was average imo (at the restaurants) with two exceptions - the bakery (a must visit) and Miguel's Beach'n Baja (a must visit). Sorry folks - have had seafood all over the world - average is a high rating with that in mind.
The unit needs a little tlc on the cleaning side - I am tall... I cleaned the top of the refrigerator - but the microwave vents and other areas looked to have not being cleaned in a year... it was bad... most people would not notice.
Everything else was as I said - awesome and I would come back... and I probably will... with bikes and kayaks... :) thank you for an awesome stay

House was great! Only complaint about the house was the soiled furniture covers. Could have used a washing. Only complaint about Dauphin Island is the construction. All day long heavy equipment going back and forth. Very noisy. I understand there is nothing the homeowner or rental company can do about that but it ruined our vacation.

Enjoyed our time at Island Escape

The house is great! Great location! The house has plenty of room.

Our group of 10 (parents + 8 adult kids) had a great week overall at Island Escape!
Positives: Great views from deck and "crows nest", clean home, basically a private beach, easy check in check out, plenty of kitchenware/towels, etc., walking distance to West End Beach.
Negatives: Only real negative is size of shared parking area on Vargas. There were 10 vehicles between the 3 rentals and it was like a jigsaw puzzle the first couple of days. Our advice is to communicate early with your "neighbors" to work out a system. We were also able to work with renters next street west to park there as there is only one home using that lot. Obviously if another home built that won't be possible but works for now.

This was a family vacation that included married children and in-laws. We all loved the house and there was plenty of room for everyone. I especially enjoyed sitting on the deck just watching the waves. I grew up in Mobile and we used to come to Dauphin Island to the beach. It has been years since I have been back but I loved the quiet family atmosphere that you still find at Dauphin Island. We only had one problem with the house which was repaired promptly by the Management Company. I would recommend Island Escape and hope that we can make it back next year. I would also recommend that anyone coming with children take a ride on the ferry. My 4 year old grandson loved it. He also like exploring Fort Gaines. As far as restaurants - the Islander's breakfast was great and the shrimp at JT's Sunset Grill was excellent.

My family and I rented this house for a month, and I could not be happier with our experience. The house is in a marvelous location, and is equipped with practically everything you could even think you might need. It didn't have a whisk or a pizza cutter, but we contributed those for future renters. ;-) I have stayed in cabins in the mountains and places on the beach, and I've never stayed anywhere that was as well-equipped.
The views from the crow's nest are awesome, and there is nothing better than sitting on the deck listening to the waves and birds, and watching dolphins swim just off the shore. There was plenty of room for everybody to spread out and have their own space. The peace and tranquility of this island is just hard to express in words. In short, as my title says, FABULOUS! I almost cried when I had to pack up and go home.

Great time, very enjoyable

Our family enjoyed the week at Island Escape. The property was nice and the view from the balcony was fantastic.
Kevin J.on 06/18/2016
This was one of the best family vacations to date. The location and amenities could not have better. We will definitely be returning for future visit's. Thanks to the staff of Island Resort Management for taking care of all our needs. We look forward to see you guy's again soon.

This rental property was absolutely everything we wanted and more. The views are amazing, we had our own beach, also at night it was so cool to play games under the lights of the house perfect for Ladderball and Cornhole. Plenty of room, plenty of hot water during showers. I would recommend this for a large family looking for a beautiful get away!
Awesome time with the family over Thanksgiving..Had a couple very minor items to fix and within a couple hrs it was a done deal..Excellent customer service..House sleeps 13 and has a huge dining room table, but only can sit 5 in the livingroom..1 couch 1 loveseat..during the summer months I doubt that is an issue since everyone would be outside on the large deck taking in the dolphins swimming by..Overall a great house for a family get together
The house was the perfect size! We had 4 adults, 3 teenagers and 3 pre teens. Everyone had their own space/own tv's. Bathrooms/showers were never a problem- although more hooks to hang up wet towels in bathrooms would have been great! We loved that house was right on the beach! We had no idea there was a crows nest- that was so awesome to view sunrises and sunsets!! We also enjoyed the short walk down to the public beach to look for shells. The house was clean and very well stocked everything we needed to cook was there. - we would have appreciated some plastic tumblers for the kids vs. all the glass. We did have to send a maintence request and that was acknowledged quickly. There are quite a few things in need of attention around the house- especially door knobs and lights that will need to be replaced. And spraying for the bugs. I know it was mentioned they come from the trees?? There is not a single tree near that house for at least 5 miles.
The parking was not ideal . It was quite a trick to maneuver three houses worth of cars in the very small lot- plus unloading the car while climbing up the 'dune' to get inside.
Amazing property. The rental group was very responsive to the minor fix needed done and the serviceman was the within the hour. Fantastic views. Well stocked. Can't wait to come back!
We had a great time being together. The Beach area was just perfect. The view was wonderful. Saw lots of dolphins. There were a couple of issues and one was resolved immediately but the other never was while we were there. Also, a new a/c was being installed the morning we were preparing to leave which created a little more hectic trying to pack and all with them coming in and dodging each other. Wish they would have waited until we left which was before 10. Otherwise all was great!
Property is a decent property, lots of space and good layout. internet access was terrible and a significant drawback. Our second year and we were told internet was better but it was the sane as last year. We are going to get a different property next year. Location is good and beach access is outstanding.
Lovely house with a great view. We were kind of cramped with 13 of us, but had small children so it worked ok. Kitchen is nicely stocked & we had plenty of towels. There were a few minor things that needed to be addressed & we made a note of those for the owners. When those get done, it will be just about perfect!
We had two families at the house, totaling 12, and we had plenty of room. There is a "bunk" room, connected to a smaller room, where we had all of the boys sleeping (6 total), and they had plenty of room. The downstairs area is great for a large group - large dining table, kitchen bar with chairs, so plenty of room. But, the porches are amazing! We had wind from all directions while were there, and we were always able to move chairs on the porch to a quiet side of the house. We also setup a volleyball net on the huge empty beach area next to the house. We all had a great time and really loved the house.
Took our children and grandchildren for a Christmas vacation and it was the best! The home has all the necessities and it very comfortable. Plenty of room to have your own space and a great table for playing games and family dinning. A quite area of the island and the view were spectacular and great for long walks and family gatherings. Thank you all for making our trip a memory to remember!
