Wonderful Family Vacation
"We chose this Tropical Dunes house for our first vacation rental spring break experience. Our group included Grandma plus three families with five children ages 8 months to 7 years. Everyone loved the house with separate bedrooms but also a great common area for all to gather. The kitchen was equipped with anything we could have wanted. Porch and balcony provided beautiful ocean views.
Since we had young children we especially appreciated the chairs, bed rails, safety gates, plastic dishes, numerous beach toys and the cart we used for our numerous trips to the beach. The washer and dryer was handy for the wet towels and kids' clothes.
During our stay we didn't leave for additional entertainment since we spent all our time at the beach. It was a secluded beautiful beach area for swimming, playing in sand, watching dolphins, collecting shells and relaxing in general.
Our family enjoyed the vacation house stay and plan to consider this house for future trips."

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
My husband, our children and grandchildren had a wonderful vacation at Southern Surprise. We were blessed with beautiful weather for the week so the kids played in the pool and enjoyed the beach so much ! The house was great with everything you need for a relaxed vacation and was very clean and well kept. The location is far enough away from the busy area that you feel you are secluded and yet close enough that you can be at the shops and restaurants in minutes. We dined at Lambert's , Mikee,s ,Tacky Jacks, and Cracker Barrel, shopped the island stores, visited the park at Orange Beach, hung out at the pool and beach and played games all night. Loved everything and will definitely come back! I do wish the pool had handrails as I was not able to get in , however, having the elevator gave me freedom to go a lot more than I have been able to in past years at our other locations we have visited."

"We had a fantastic stay in the Sweet Dreams house! We rented out the full house and loved it. The owner was very nice and extremely helpful from the beginning of the booking process all the way through to our check out time. Sweet Dreams has a great location with a beautiful stretch of beach directly across the street and plenty of restaurants and other attractions very close as well. Also the private pool area in the backyard should not go overlooked. Its a fantastic area to have some privacy and still enjoy the beautiful weather."

"We stayed at the Southern Cross with two families (4 adults and 4 toddlers ages 2 to 5) and had absolutely amazing time. The property fully accommodated our personal needs. All bedrooms have individual bathrooms attached which was very helpful and convenient. The kids stayed downstairs while the adults were upstairs. We loved eating outside on the porch and truly enjoyed the close proximity to the beach, community pool and Little Lagoon pier as well as the private beach area. Walking across the street to the Gulf coast beach took less than a minute. The community pool was hardly used so we almost had it to ourselves during our stay. We spent most mornings at the Gulf and the afternoons at the pool. Grocery stores are within a few minutes by car. One night we went to THE HANGOUT and enjoyed some life music and ice cream with the kids. I highly recommend this property to any family with little ones. Mark the owner was always helpful and immediate with his correspondence. We will definitely return next year!!! Thanks Mark, we wholeheartedly loved our stay at the Southern Cross!"
