Great Vacation

Here to Dream was just what my family had been dreaming of. It was the prefect place to enjoy some time together. We’re already “dreaming” of a return trip next year.

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!

Here to Dream

We've stayed at Here to Dream for almost 10 years now. Every year coming back marks changes in our families, children and lives. It's become part of our family tradition. Demetri is amazing, the house is always great, and the experience is always memorable. Here to Dream feels like coming home.

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.

Fun in the sun

Every one enjoyed their time at the beach. The house was well kept and suitable for a family vacation. It is far enough from downtown to be more private and less hectic but close enough to get whatever you may need.

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. Demetri was excellent to work with and even left a welcome gift for us! The only things that I would add as a “needs improvement” 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 “clean freak” and notice details that many wouldn’t however. The rest of the home was cleaned well such as bathrooms and kitchen and we were very comfortable. If we go back to Gulf Shores then we would definitely stay there again!

Beautiful view

This house is lovely. It had everything we needed and had beautiful views of the beach. We loved walking straight out into the beach from the home. We will definitely be back again.

Absolutely Excellent!

This is paradise. The home is designed to see the ocean front from kitchen to den...absolutely breath taking. The decor is gorgeous and makes you feel like you are in your own dream home. Lovely.

Another great stay!

This was our family's second stay at Here to dream. And just like the first time everything went flawless. We frequent the Gulf Shores area and have lots of experience with other properties and had no problem coming back to this property for a second time knowing between the house and the property manager Mitrie we would be taken care of. 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. Has before nature was there with a key lime pie and to answer any questions for us we had and give plenty of suggestions local activities and restaurants. Cleanliness of the house and upkeep seem very satisfactory we're fortunate to catch some great weather. If you're looking for privacy lots of beach time a comfortable house with lots of room we highly recommend this property.

Here to Dream

We had a wonderful experience in the Here to Dream house over spring break! This house had plenty of room for our family and the view from the family room was amazing! House was clean and fully stocked with everything we needed. Loved the Key lime pie waiting for us on arrival. Great hospitality, awesome service, amazing views = a perfect vacation! We will be back for sure!

Great Location, Beautiful View

We've stayed in Here to Dream five times and really enjoy it. The house is far enough away from the main drag that it's always peaceful. Since we stayed during November, we had the added benefit of watching the Blue Angels practice.The Property Manger, Metri, is a pleasure to deal with and is quite responsive. We've already made our reservation for next year.

Great Escape!

We stayed at Here to Dream and it was a perfect place for my family. There were 7 if us and there was tons of space, very easy access to get to the beach and very secluded from the hustle and bustle that you get when yo stay in the condos further down the strip. We had our own little stretch of beach to enjoy for an entire week. Metri was very helpful and offered some suggestions to help us make the most out of our stay. We had a blast!

We were 5 adults and 5 children under 6 enjoying this property 100%.It was our third year. The rate is very reasonable, the property is perfect for us and Metri is always a "guardian angel" and he is quick to respond to any issue. It feels like home.

My daughters wedding

It was a wonderful experience. The house was everything we imagined and more. Plenty of room, open space and very secluded beautiful beach. We were there during the music festival at the hangout and it was a madhouse at the "T".That's the beauty of being on west beach, you don't have have to get in that mess unless you choose to. I will definitely be back.

Family Beach Week

We were pleased with our stay at HereToDream. The accommodations were fine for our extended family of 6 adults and 6 kids. The bunk room became kid central. The location was superb; so nice to just walk a few steps to the beach. Metri was responsive to needs and gave suggestions. Brought in cooked seafood from S&S was super!! Everything in the house was as expected.

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. This was our second year to vacation here.

Fit our Family Perfectly

A great but functional "older" beach home but as close to the beach as they come which was very nice. But it had everything we needed and the property manager ("Uncle" Metri) was incredibly helpful and thoughtful (checking on us multiple times during a one night tropical storm.) A very positive experience for all of our family!

Visited on "September - 2018

Clean and Easy

The house was clean and in good repair when we arrived. It was plenty spacious for three families with kids. Booking, check-in, and check out were as easy and can be and Mitri was very easy to deal with. Will definitely consider working with these good people again when we return to Gulf Shores.

Everything was just perfect! Our daughter was married on the beach at Hear to Dream.

Thank you Paradise Gulf Properties for allowing us to give our daughter her dream wedding.

Here to Dream...and we did.

This great place was as advertised and more. No coastal beach house is closer to the water and none has a better view. Metri, the manager, was competent, responsive, informative and charming to boot. If you come to stay, don't pick our week because we're coming back!

We had a fantastic week at "Here to Dream" located right on the beach. It's an awesome location away from crowds and so close to the water for our many trips back and forth with young children.

Awesome beachfront house

It doesn't get any better than this!! Location of this house is perfect--you step out the back door right onto the beach. Outdoor porches on both sides of the house and on the lower level mean there's tons of areas for relaxing in the sun or shade. The house is very comfortable and has incredible views of the water from the living room. Kitchen is fully stocked with appliances/pots/pans, the table is nice and big to accommodate everyone, and all the usual amenities are in place (t.v, dvd player, wifi). Metri is attentive and available to make sure your stay is perfect. This house will not disappoint-we would absolutely stay here again!

It's well supplied for your needs. Demitri is very nice/ helpful.
