Very relaxing vacation
Posted on: 7/25/2013

We had a wonderful familiy vacation at Island Retreat.  This house is beautiful, very clean and spacious.  Sitting on the deck at night listening to the waves was wonderful.  Although this house is 2 houses away from the surf it is still very convenient, without the higher price of staying gulf front. You still have nice gulf views, espeacially from the upper deck.

We can’t wait to come back next year.  Thank you for sharing your beautiful home.

Unforgettable Family Time
Posted on: 7/31/2013
The home was spacious, comfortable and lovely with good views of the beach. The location was quiet and close to the beach, and we all felt safe there with our small grandchildren. This was our first family gathering with our children, spouses and grandchildren, for the occasion of the dedication of our youngest grandson. My parents visited for a couple of nights, and once we had gotten them up to the main level, I’m not sure who enjoyed themselves the most — our 3-year old on his first beach trip or my parents. (My mother had a severe stroke a year ago.) Our visit could not have been more special and memorable. Thank you!

Not too bad
Posted on: 11/6/2013
Besides ants inside the kitchen, the beach house was nice. I would not recommend bringing small children/toddlers. There are too many glass objects and the stairs was a problem. I should’ve brought a gate to keep the kids from wanting to climb. I was hoping the ocean water was going to be more clear like Orange Beach, but it was more on the brown side. Also, the beach is pet friendly. There were dogs everywhere. Wasn’t really a fan of that because people don’t clean up their messes.

Nice place

To simply say we enjoyed our stay is an understatement! There were a few small things that need attention, but overall the place is beautiful. The kitchen is well-equipped.

Great visit!!! Lovely house
Posted on: 10/27/2015
My family and I stayed at the Island Retreat house for 4 nights in October. Our group consisted of me and my husband and our three year old son, my mother, and my brother, his wife and their twin one year olds. There was plenty of room for all of us. The house was even more lovely than shown in the photos on the advertisement. We had everything we needed and everything in the house was in working order and good condition. The beachfront was just a short walk away. We loved every minute and hope to return soon. Thank you for a terrific experience.
