Gulf Shores House Rental Photos and Description

5 bedroom, 5.5 bathroom, sleeps 15

Day Dream is a large professionally decorated 5 suites/5.5 bathroom Gulf Front home located in the Dunes gated subdivision in Fort Morgan. You will love our local amenities: 2 pools, exercise room and hot tub. Everything is so close by and convenient. The pools are only 50 yards from the house and the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico only 45 yards away. The board walk right off the deck makes the beach access easy and convenient for everyone.

Our immaculate home was designed to welcome everyone. The elevator makes it easy to transport your luggage and groceries and it comes handy for those that might need extra help going up and down to the beach.

We have thought of every detail to make your vacation enjoyable and stress free. We provide several amenities for children such as a Playstation, high chair, bed rail, booster seat and beach toys.

The adults fare even better. We have plenty of sitting space in the living room to enjoy our brand new 42” plasma TV. The kitchen is fully accessorized with brand new dinnerware, a dining table that seats 10 people + 4 bar stools. Additionally an ice maker and an array of small appliances will make your stay easy and convenient.

Our five suites will allow you to enjoy much deserved rest after a full day at the beach. Two of our 5 bedrooms are Gulf Front and you can enjoy the gulf front deck on the second floor. Our sleeping arrangements are flexible and will work for most groups, we have: 4 king size beds, 2 twins, 1 day bed, 1 roll away bed and 3 sleepers. All bedrooms feature a TV + DVD player.

Although a captivating and relaxing home like ours is all you need to hang out with family and friends, we understand that sometimes turning off completely is not possible. Bearing that in mind we also offer you with Wireless High Speed Internet.

To top it off, the proximity with the water will allow you to relax and marvel over the simple pleasures of children’s laughter, friends’ chatter and the dolphin choreography you can often observe from our gulf front decks. Your vacation at Day Dream will be unforgettable!

FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
We took all our kids and grandchildren and also another couple with us to this house. We arrived right after hurricane IKE. We were still able to stay since the oner of the home was able to get her repair person there to make sure everything was in working order.Great location if you have little ones going to the beach. Well equipted with amenties for children 2 and under and toys for the beach for 2 and up.Would stay there again with out hesitation. There is a walmart 20 miles from house were we went and done our grocery shopping.We did not go into town as we were content to just use the beach and the pools that were provided.

Great for a large family!

  • 4 of 5
The house and the location were wonderful! This house is perfect for families wanting to vacation together but still have their own space with each bedroom having their own private bath. The beach was beautiful and we were able to leave our chairs and tent out each night. The kids had a ball playing on the beach and though the pool seems a bit far, it is an easy walk. The grocery store is 20 minutes away but we planned ahead for that. The elevator was a life saver as we had a person in a wheelchair. It also was helpful when loading and unloading luggage. The weather was absolutely beautiful this time of year! The only downside to the property was the response by the property managers. The half bath was unusable and the downstairs lights were all blown. We notified housekeeping immediately after arriving but after four phone calls and no response, we emailed the property managers. The half bath toilet had a note from previous guests that it was not working and I am sure when the place was cleaned that it was obvious that there was no lights downstairs or on the upstairs hallway stairs. We checked in on Saturday. The property manager did call on Monday and stated that someone would be out that day to take care of everything. We called back Tuesday and were told someone would be out that day. Tuesday afternoon a maintenance man did come out and fix all lights but said he would have to come back the next day to fix the toilet. The issue was we had small children coming in from the beach as well as a handicapped person and they had to go all the way upstairs to use the bathroom. The maintenance man did not show up the next day and we received NO notification when he would be back. On Friday, I again called the property manager and was told it had been fixed when in fact no one had ever returned to fix the problem. The manager did call back and apologize and said the maintenance man would be back that afternoon to fix it. I thought, Why bother? We were leaving Saturday anyway! The property manager didn't seem to mind that we were inconvienced because I was told they were having major problems with a condo. To be honest, I could care less. We weren't renting a condo, we were renting a beach house that we expected to have functioning bathrooms. The fact that the property managers did not take the time to make sure the issues were handled is what bothers me. We would love to have rented this place again next year if issues had been handled accordingly.

Comfortable House

  • 4 of 5
An extended family group of nine of us stayed at this property in April 2014. The photos and description are accurate, although the room colors are not quite as bright as suggested by the photos. The decorating is pleasing to the eye but there are a few areas of wear or chips in the wall paint. The rental agency (Bella Beach
Properties) was polite, responsive, and honest whenever I had a question or concern. We loved having 5 bedrooms, each with an attached full bath. The washer and dryer worked well and were handy to have. An ice maker (separate from the fridge) can keep a lot of drinks nice and cold. The view out the living room windows of the Gulf of Mexico is awesome, since this property is just across the dunes from the beach. Beach access is super easy, just down a boardwalk. The beach was clean and not at all crowded during our stay. We enjoyed being far from the crowds in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach, but be aware that the nearest grocery store is a good 20 miles away. Consider this property if you like getting away from the crowds and spending time with family or friends at the beach.

I do have to mention a few things that somewhat detracted from an otherwise excellent stay. During our stay, we had a good rain storm with wind-driven rain whipping in off the Gulf. The windows on the Gulf side of the property all leaked water, enough to soak a pair of shoes that was too near the window. The carpets and flooring got wet. The gas grill works but is in a poor state of repair, having wheels that fall off, an igniter that does not work, and one side of the handle unattached. You will need two people to move the grill out since the wheels fall off. The starter amounts of supplies such as garbage bags, toilet paper, and dish soap, were adequate only for the first day. We had to get more of these things right away. The stereo system is a nice addition but the subwoofer only made a loud buzzing noise and had to be unplugged. I could not get the fireplaces to light (I gave up rather quickly, though). The high speed internet was good for keeping in touch and checking email but not fast enough to stream a movie. The property lacked instructions for how to use the internet, fireplace, stereo system, intercom, telephone, etc. It also lacked information about which two of the three nearby pools you have access to, and how to get into the exercise room (you need a key).

In spite of these things, we really enjoyed our stay and would rent this house again.

A WONDERFUL FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
Our family enjoyed a wonderful week at "Day Dream"! There were 11 of us - 5 adults and 6 children. We found "our home" with the directions supplied to us quite easily. We loved the proximity to the gulf and the gorgeous view off the back porch. The water was beautiful as well as the beach - which we found not very crowded.
The first day we encountered a few problems which the owner addressed immediatley and solved to our satisfaction. Although we never used the elevator (we liked the exercise of going up and down the stairs), it was an added feature that I am sure others would appreciate. The house was VERY comfortable and the fact that there were so many bathrooms, was a real plus. Between the fridge and the icemaker, we always had plenty of ice. We loved having the dish washer because we ate a lot of meals around the big kitchen table.
My husband, our adult children and I would definitely recommend "Day Dream" for a family vacation. Our only suggestion would be to get your supplies before settling in. There is a grocery store now named Bell's that had everyting we needed and got most of our provisions there. We never went to WalMart, but I understand it is also available.
Our family had a wonderful time visiting various attractions in the area. We went to the museum at the Naval Station in Pensacola. We took the car ferry to Mobile and visited the alligator farm. We went to Lulu's for dinner which the kids loved.
Enjoy your stay at "DayDream". It is a wonderful vacation for all ages!!

CB-APOSTOLIC TRAVELERS (birmingham, alabama)-fun in the sun

  • 5 of 5
When we turned the corner in the sub-division to begin looking for the house, the picture on the flyer lead us right to it. My GPS (navagation on the car) needs to be updated because it guided us to the street before the one the house was on! But hey, the color of the house was a sure giveaway. Once in the house, everything was just as it looked on the pictures off the computer. The bedrooms, the sofa sleepers, the daybed, the roll-away bed were more than enough to accommodate the needs of our family. The master master bedroom with the whirlpool was the talk of the group; so, so nice! WE NEVER RAN OUT OF HOT WATER; HOW ABOUT THAT! The open floor plan for the living room, dining room and kitchen was great! TVs in every room a big plus. Beach access 1 min, pool access 1 & 1/2 min, just great. Our age range was 3 yrs. old to 79 yrs. old. OH, what fun we had. We would love to spend our next summer vacation in the same house. The big food stores are on the main road (hwy 59) but hey, if you got cars that's no problem. There are stores on Fort Morgan Rd in case you needed something really quick. Once we got there, we made a list for the groceries we would need for the days we would be cooking and eating in. Breakfast was cooked every morning. What a great time we had eating together in one place; all fifteen of us. My father had a great time going from deck to deck on the front & the back of every level of the house just sitting around taking it easy. People as you can see we had a ball and are looking forward to coming back on next year. OK, go on & make your reservation to stay at DAYDREAM, you'll be glad you did!!!!!! We would also like to thank the owner for opening up this home for us to have a nice home away from home to sit back & relax and have a peaceful stay.

Needs Work

  • 2 of 5
This house leaks buckets during a heavy rain (upstairs, downstairs, beach-facing side, road-facing side). One corner of the dining table was essentially cordoned off as you'd get wet just sitting there! Spent two days trying to contain the water and another two days drying the place out to get rid of the musty, wet smell. The outdoor shower on the boardwalk is broken. We had a deck chair collapse on us due to rust and rot. And only the bravest of souls dares tackle the dark, understairs closet where beach toys (some were very nice) and assorted shoddy beach chairs are piled in utter disarray. Property could use a good thorough cleaning as well!

Otherwise, the house is roomy and mostly comfortable. The WiFi was broken when we arrived but the owner was very responsive in getting it quickly fixed. We hate to give a poor review but the rate is rather excessive for a house in desperate need of repair and cleaning.

Owner's Response: I always wonder why guests that make positive comments write their names and guests that place negative comments omit their names ...
I understand the complaints. This family was stranded inside the house for a full week because of non-stop rain. Nobody can be happy under those circumstances. The rain and wind came from all directions, day and night. All gulf front houses exposed to that kind of weather will present leaks. We have since worked on main leaks and are doing further work presently.
We have cleaned and organized the toy and beach chair area as well which naturally gets very messy during the season as guests do not follow our instructions of rinsing and replacing items where they were found. We always take action immediately when an issue surfaces. The WIFI issue mentioned by the guest is a good example.
I encourage you to also read the comment from the family that stayed the week of 6/22, 3 weeks after this family with the negative comments was at the house. It is hard to believe they are reviewing the same house!
One entire week of rain will make anyone unhappy, but unfortunately we will suffer the consequences with the negative comments.
