Step back to a time when families could vacation together at the beach with no condos in sight! At this wonderful beach retreat, dreams become reality! This four bedroom/three and one-half bath home is the perfect place for a family vacation. The large open great room and huge kitchen make togetherness ideal. Plenty of space for cooking, dining, watching TV and playing games inside. Outside, there is a large deck that is partially covered with stairs leading to the beach. Outside two of the upstairs bedrooms, there’s a screened porch that overlooks the waves below. Underneath the house is a cool, shady place for sitting in a swing or hammock while grilling the fish you just caught surf fishing!
Located in a gated beach front community, Island Sunrise is on the East end of Dauphin Island which is the perfect place for bike riding, exploring historic Ft. Gaines, taking a ferry ride across the Bay, learning about sea life at the local estuarium, and fishing and playing in the beautiful Gulf waters.
The master bedroom has a king size bed, flat screen TV and a wall of windows overlooking the water. It is located on the main floor. Upstairs are three more bedrooms and two full baths. Two of the bedrooms have king size beds and flat screen TVs and have a French door leading to the large screened in porch overlooking the water. The 4th bedroom has 3 twin beds. The landing at the top of the stairs has a large flat screen TV and bean bag chairs for the kids.
With 10’ ceilings and an open floor plan, the large kitchen is open to the great room and has lots of cabinet and counter space. There is also a large laundry room just off the kitchen and a half bath. There is seating for 8 at the dining table and seating for 4 more at a nearby table in the great room.
The great room has flanking sofas, two recliners, a flat screen TV and a fireplace. French doors lead to an open deck that runs the width of the house and that faces the beautiful beach which is only a few steps from the house via a short boardwalk.
The area under the stairs is the perfect place for children to choose a book, puzzle or toy from the built-in bookcases after a busy day on the beach.
There’s great fun and memories to be made at this beach front retreat!

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!
