Dauphin Island house description

Amazing views, blissful sunsets, ocean breezes, and the sound of waves lapping at the shoreline await you at this fabulous, newly built, pet-friendly, beachfront home located directly on the Gulf of Mexico.

Villa Delphinus (named for the leaping dolphin constellation) was built 2008 and has a large, wrap-around, partially covered deck for panoramic views of the Gulf and Bay. The interior is bathed in that magical seaside light and features a vaulted living room, bamboo flooring, 2 bedrooms with queen beds and sleeper sofa in the living room, 2 porcelain tiled bathrooms, and spacious, open living, dining, and kitchen areas.

This home has new, high-end furnishings, appliances and amenities for your ultimate comfort and convenience, including: a fully stocked kitchen with microwave, coffee maker, toaster oven, blender and multiple TVs; full size washer & dryer; large Weber charcoal grill; WIFI, cable TV/DVD and phone connections; and linens/towels provided.

The living room features oversized windows overlooking the ocean, flat-screen TV/DVD combo, and sleeper sofa. The master bedroom with private bath has separate patio doors that open onto the ocean-side deck, and both bedrooms have cable TV and all new furnishings.

REGARDING WIFI - We are on an island, and WIFI is not always reliable due to weather and other changing conditions. IF Internet is imperative to you during your stay, please consider bringing an Internet device such as Verizon MIFI Jet Pack or set up your iPhone or Android as a back-up HOT SPOT. We can fix most issues with just a phone call from you during your stay, so give us a ring if you need something.

Villa Delphinus is located on the quiet, residential West End of Dauphin Island and is perfect for walks, bike rides, bird watching, fishing, exploring nature by the sea, or simply watching the dolphins play among the passing shrimp boats.

This beach house is also just a short walk to the new West End Beach, where you can enjoy bands, horseshoe and volleyball tournaments, jet skis, kites, and a variety of food and beverages all day long.

Once you get a taste of island life here, we're sure you'll want to make this little slice of paradise a permanent vacation destination! Check us out - our availability calendar is current and accurate.
