Great Highly recommend! We had a great stay. The house was right on the beach and very clean. We had a few issues with leaking and it was fixed very quickly without any issues. The house is perfect for families who have to walk back and forth to the beach multiple times with kids because it is so close! We will definitely be staying here again.

Extended Family Stay The house was exactly as pictured. Plenty of room for our extended family. We had five adults and two young kids. Right on the beach, behind the sand dune of course. One level living was great. View from the large table was great. Property manager was great from booking to meeting us there the first day. Beach equipment is not provided, but many guests leave behind items like sand toys, chairs and umbrellas. We brought our own chairs and sun shades that we set up each day. Area is nice and secluded, only sharing a beach with the guests staying at the houses on either side, which was well over 20 feet of separation on the beach. Nice upper deck table and chairs. We'd rent again. Don't hesitate to book!

Perfect Family Getaway I am so glad that I read the reviews before coming down to this property. The house was just as described. The pictures don’t do it justice. It is within steps from the beach, which made for a very easy access To the bathroom For little kids and older adults. We have three families and each felt that they had enough space, particularly with the children having their own room. One disappointment was that although the AC was adequate for 95% of the house, the bedroom facing the ocean was a bit warmer than everything else. Also, the Internet was fairly slow. Beyond that, Metri was wonderful and had left us the most incredible key lime pie I have ever tasted. Also, my mother left the house and was halfway to Ohio before realizing that she had taken one of the house keys. Metri was Gracious and accommodating and completely understood. We will definitely rent from them in the future for our family vacations!

Right on the Beach This was our 3rd year to visit "Here to Dream" as a family. We like the openness of the living-dining-kitchen and the huge table which will seat 8 or more which is in front of the large picture windows. The beach is far enough out of town that it is relatively private, even during holidays. The 4 bedrooms and 3 baths accommodated our family of 8 beautifully. 5 TV's, Wi-Fi for everyone and games and puzzles were provided. Demitri is an attentive host and will help with recommendations if asked. We enjoy staying here.

It's always a treat to stay at Here to Dream We've stayed here several times and enjoyed it every time. If you have issues or questions, the property manager, Metri, responds quickly to phone calls or texts. The property is located away from the hustle and bustle of the main part of Gulf Shores, so it's always quiet and tranquil. Even with seven adults in the house, it's roomy enough to not feel over crowded. As an aside, the HVAC system works flawlessly, which is important as the temperatures varied from the mid-80s to the mid to low 30s during our stay. We'll be returning.

A Great Place to Stay It's right on the beach facing the Gulf and has a wonderful view of the water. The open plan living-dining- kitchen is airy and spacious. One of the best things is the big table in front of a wall of windows where the group can eat, play games, and visit and everyone can find a seat. The four bedrooms and three full baths were fine for our family of 8. The kitchen is well stocked and all appliances worked well. The location is far enough from town that the beach is pretty quiet and almost feels private which our family appreciates. There are three decks and a floored area under the house with a picnic table and grills. The manager greets guests upon arrival and is very helpful. The air conditioner works great.

The Perfect Calm If you are looking for peace and tranquility at the beach, this home will be your ticket! Location is perfect. Very quiet, your own private beach and gorgeous sunrises every morning from the dining room table and views of the ocean all day. The home was comfortable and had adequate space for our family of nine and the kitchen was stocked well. <br/><br/>Demetri was excellent to work with and even left a welcome gift for us! <br/><br/>The only things that I would add as a &#x201C;needs improvement&#x201D; would be that it is due for a deep cleaning and new mattresses would be great. Deep cleaning such as the floors were really in need of sweeping out from under the beds (I always look for items that might be left) and the baseboards were in need of cleaning. I should say that I am a &#x201C;clean freak&#x201D; and notice details that many wouldn&#x2019;t however. The rest of the home was cleaned well such as bathrooms and kitchen and we were very comfortable. <br/><br/>If we go back to Gulf Shores then we would definitely stay there again!

We like the location of the house being down a ways from town and away from the condos giving you almost a completely private beachfront that incorporated with the closeness of the house to the ocean makes it hard to leave when the weather is nice.

They are hanging out side and are rusty. No one should use these. Bottom drawer of dresser broke. But as I said these are small things that would take no time to fix.

It was close enough to see each other when one was taking a turn on the beach and trade off so we both got time inside with the baby and outside in the sunshine! Close and convenient to shops, restaurants, etc, but we mainly just stayed at the house- we didn't feel we needed anything else! The manager, Dimitri was wonderful to work with- I'd recommend the place (and any place Dimitri rents) for ease of rental and hospitality. As with most beach rentals, there was a bit of mold around some of the vents and the occasional piece of furniture that was a little creeky, but overall everything was comfortable, bright, and well maintained. We didn't feel like we needed anything else- already thinking we'll email to reserve again as soon as we find out when we get vacation!

This was our second year at Here to Dream. We thoroughly enjoyed the white sand beaches and the water was beautiful. Our house far exceeded our needs. We were pleased at the steps taken to assure that the house is comfortable for everyone. We are looking forward to returning next year.

I stayed in Here to Dream with 13 others and we had a spacious and relaxing stay. When there was a problem the landlord responded immediately and was very easy to go a hold of. Also the house is so close to the beach and there was not a lot of external noise from neighboring homes.

We had a great time at "Here to Dream" beach house! Demetri was a great host. We couldn't find a vacuum, so he brought us one the next day along with two rugs for the patio doors. Our only complaint is that the floors and sofa weren't very clean (sand on the floor and food under sofas). Demitri took pictures and said he would address this issue with his cleaning crew.

PERFECT and PRIVATE location! Management (Demetri) was very helpful and friendly. Outdoor chairs are in very poor condition and showers need a storage shelf to put all hygiene items on so everything is not on the floor. Couches definitely need to be cleaned as well. Would definitely go back though! Love all the windows in the living room.

Beautiful beach home, with everything you need for your stay. This was my families first trip to the gulf for vacation, and we are already looking forward to next year. You are so close to the water it's almost surreal; the days were spent enjoying everything Gulf Shores has to offer, with a mad dash home to get into the surf. The area under the house is wonderful, you can pinic out of the sun, and the swing is a wonderful place to relax and read a good book. Demetri was wonderful, answering our questions, brought us a couple of outdoor chairs to replace some that were in disrepair, and the family loved the Key Lime pies. We ordered chairs and umbrellas from Ikes for our stay, which made sitting on the beach for the sunset, the most calming part of the day; just a beautiful and wonderful trip for everyone.

The location was excellent if you like privacy. The decks were great for relaxing and sitting in the sun. We loved the bright views and convenience to the beach. Some minor tips.... the kitchen door could use some weather stripping around the frame... lots of small bugs were able to come in around the door all week. Kitchen cooking items were dirty when we arrived, so we had to wash alot before we used them. Furniture was fair (main living area). Demetrious was friendly and very helpful when we called with questions.... none better than him! Loved the keylime pie upon our arrival. Yes, we would stay again :)<br/>

The facility was great, (a few tricks to get the microwave to work) The beach was great. Far enouph from the resorts to have better privacy. Less worry about small children. The older ones would rather have been walking distance to down town, but it wss only a short drive, and parking didn't seem to be an issue. Lots of TV's and bath rooms, we didn't have to share till it hurt. (the pocket doors could use adjusted so the latches work) <br/>Over all, we had a great week.
