About the area

We have been beach lovers for many years, but this is the most beautiful area we have ever been to. You feel as though you are on an Island with water surrounding you. The drive out to this area is so beautiful that it is hard to describe. You see the Bon Secour nature reserve, the bay on 1 side and the ocean on the other side. Having cranes and other tropical birds walk up to you on the beach is peaceful as you watch the dolphins play in the ocean. A ferry boat at the end of Fort Morgan can take you and your vehicle to Dauphine Island where there is a Sea Lab, Audubon Bird Sanctuary and Fort Gaines, an old Colonial fort to tour. Take a tour of Old Fort Morgan from the Civil War and visit the State Park at the end of the peninsula in Fort Morgan. There is a seafood restaurant, an American cuisine restaurant, pizza and Tacky Jacks locals restaurant and bar. The 3 restaurants, 3 convenience stores, seafood market and gas station on the Peninsula are quite convenient. You are in a beautiful secluded area but only a few miles to Gulf Shores and Orange Beach happenings like concerts,water parks, The Track and miniature golf. In this family oriented area there are plenty of things to do to keep everyone busy from the kids to the golfer. We enjoy the natural beauty of this area with no high rise buildings obstructing our view.

“Just what the doctor ordered”

Reviewed 25 Jul 2016

My little family truly enjoyed our stay! With life being as stressful as it is right now this Vacation and home away from home were just what we all needed!! The location was great! The house very welcoming! The beach was great! My husband and I agree we will be planning on a return trip!! Thank you for opening your home to us! We will always remember our stay and the memories we made!

“"Island Dream" is truly a dream!!!”

Reviewed 12 Jul 2016

My family rented this beach house for a week and could not have been happier. It was as advertised and much more!!! It was very clean when we arrived and the house was fully furnished with everything you would need...towels, pans for cooking, grill outside, beach chairs and beach towels. Brenda, the owner is extremely helpful and courteous. The Gulf is a short walk from the back and the bay is a short walk from the front. There were plenty of places to set up on the beach and very nice to swim. If we decide to ever vacation in the same area, we will definately rent "Island Dream" again!!! I

Owner's reply: Angie thank you for your nice review. I am so glad your family had a good time. This is what we love to hear. The house is in an awesome location with views of water from every window. We try to make Island Dream feel like home to all of our guests. Thanks, Brenda

“Awesome place to relax”

Reviewed 29 May 2016

This was a great place. My wife and kids came during a huge music festival in Gulf Shores, but this end of the island was not affected by the business in town. Easy beach access and a couple restaurants nearby made this the perfect place to relax.

“Peace and Quiet”

Reviewed 3 Apr 2016

We have frequented Gulf Shores/Ft. Morgan for the last 25 years, so we have watched the area grow and change with the trends. Island Dream House is everything you need for a peaceful respite from the bustle of everyday life, but it has the amenities and location to rest and recharge without being off the grid completely! The house and grounds are aptly described in the posting -- very comfortable and easy to make yourself at home in. Although we were there during a windy and cool spring break, we had a good time. Check out Acme Oyster House, Wolf Bay Lodge, King Neptune's, nearby Dauphin Island, and for fresh seafood, gourmet fixings and a great wine selection, Blalock's Seafood. We would definitely stay at Island Dream again.

Owner's reply: Michelle, Thank you so much for your nice review. I am glad that the house met all of your needs. This is an awesome area to visit with all the natural beauty and still convenient to stores and restaurants. I enjoyed our conversations about your travel adventures, as well. Thanks, Brenda

“We love the beach!”

Reviewed 9 Aug 2015

Island Dream is a perfect house for relaxing at the beach. We loved the downstairs outdoor shower, the decks and the views of the bay and the gulf. Just a 3 minute walk to the beach. House was well maintained and clean.

“Home sweet home!!!”

Reviewed 6 Sep 2014

The house was great, the location out of this world, the house had everything and more that you would need for a rental beach house. The area was quite and perfect! Just what I wanted for my vacation away from the city. We weren't to close to the main area of the gulf shores but it was close enough if wanted to go. But for me, I was happy just sitting on the porch and looking at the beach. The owner Brenda was wonderful and she really made us feel at home as if we were family visiting the beach house. It was such a pleasure to be in the house and I will definitely visit again!! Thanks again Brenda for everything!!! We will have this wonderful memory forever!!!

Owner's reply: Thanks so much for your review. I am so glad you had a great visit! We look forward to serving your travel needs again in the future. The short drive to the busy tourist area is worth it just to stay in an all natural area where there are unobstructed views of the Gulf and the Bay and just enough stores and restaurants to meet your needs . Brenda

“So perfect and cozy!!!”

“Comphy Cozy”

Reviewed 19 Jul 2013

This was a great house in a great location. There is a great view of the water out of every window. The only thing that I hated about the trip was the day that we had to leave.

Owner's reply: Felicia, Thank you so much for your review. The location is awesome and we are so glad you enjoyed Island Dream. We hope you and your family will visit us again soon. Thanks, Brenda

“2-Water View!”

Reviewed 29 Apr 2013

Great get-away with daughter, sil and infant granddaughter - well appointed home with all the amenities. Tastefully decorated and comfortable with generous rooms for cooking, eating, sleeping and best of all - relaxing! Especially wonderful? The two decks! Two decks for wonderful views of the bay and the gulf...and the incredible white sand...and the sunsets...a wonderful get-away for this rain-weary north westerner!

Owner's reply: We hope you will visit again soon and enjoy our awesome water views. Thank you for such a nice description of the house. Brenda

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. It was very clean and well equipped with kitchen and bathroom accessories. We filled the home with 6 of us and had a great stay. Affordable and we wished we could have stayed another week.

Owner Supplied Testimonials

Island Dream is situated perfectly to enable visitors to enjoy both the beaches on the Gulf and bay with a short walk. The views from both decks are wonderful and no better spot to sit with a glass of wine and experience the famous Ft. Morgan sunset. The owners were more than helpful with our plans and are real people, not someone working for a rental company. We truly enjoyed our stay and hope to visit again! Wayne

We had an amazing time at Island Dream. The house is so beautiful and so clean. We were immediately impressed with your attention to detail that you have maintained in the home( furniture, artwork, patio chairs, kitchen appliance/cookware, etc). We loved the outdoor shower and bathroom downstairs. Kimbra

Great House!
We enjoyed our family vacation at Island Dream. The short walk to the Gulf and the bay made this a great beach and fishing vacation. Happy Traveller

Thank you for sharing your wonderful beach house with us. The place was very cozy and the kids loved having their own cool rooms. We enjoyed looking out to the Gulf and the Bay from each side of the house. The time spent on the beach are memories we will cherish forever. Thanks again. We hope to return in the future.

We had a wonderful week! Thanks for the beach house. We enjoyed many good restaurants and shopping at Tanger Outlet. We took the ferry to Dauphine Island one day and enjoyed it. Best of all-crab hunting on the beach every night. The kids loved it.

We loved the house and the beautiful beach. The kids boogie boarded most of the week because the waves were high. The last day ,though, was amazing. You could see forever in the clear water.
The Culbreaths

This was our first beach experience in Alabama. It was a great week for our family. We spent lots of time on the sand and the weather was outstanding for the most part. We really enjoyed the house and it was a good place to congregate after a long day outside. Thank you for your hospitality.
Ken and Renee

This is our first beach vacation. This house is great,very comfy and cozy, a big help of feeling like home. We absolutely love the views from all the windows with water everywhere you look.
We saw dolphins playing in the water. Awesome! Graham Family

What an awesome place in a beautiful setting. We spent the week and wish it was not over. We visited Dauphin Island by way of the ferry ride and toured the Fort. All fun. We spent much time at the beach and wished for more.
So glad we found Island Dream and Brenda

I love this town! Fort Morgan is so beautiful and the history is amazing! We had so much fun fishing and hanging out on the beach. Fishing from the pier was the best. I caught the biggest fish I have ever caught in my life. Thanks so much for such a comfortable and cute place to stay that made this a great vacation. We will be back.

We had a wonderful time at Island Dream and the beach this week. The weather was perfect and our families spent lots of quality time together. We cannot wait for next years vacation.
Thank you,

Our stay at Island Dream was just what we needed in a vacation. There were 6 adults and 1 child and we had plenty of room. We had an awesome time as a family.
The weather was great, the beach was fabulous and our vacation was quite delightful.
Thank you,

We had such a nice time staying in your beautiful beach house. I love how you have decorated. I don't think I could have wished for anything better. The walk to the beach was easy. I would definitely recommend Island Dream to a friend and would like to return here myself. Thanks so much, Natalie
