Dauphin Island condo description

Island Paradise! Want to get away from it all, we have the perfect place. You will fall in love with our peaceful, quiet little Island. Enjoy the beautiful uncrowded white sandy beaches.

You will especially enjoy our condo because it is on ground level, no steps or elevators to get to the pools or the beach. You walk out sliders to a private patio and two pools. Just a few more steps and you will find yourself enjoying the ocean breeze on the island's gorgeous beach. Enjoy the beautiful sunsets and or try some fishing as the dolphins play and swim by.

There is plenty of room in our 1500 sq. ft. condo. The master bedroom has king size bed also an ensuite bathroom with shower and a whirlpool tub, along with two large walk-in closets. The second bedroom has a queen bed with an ensuite full bath and the third bedroom has two single beds with its own bathroom as well. The living room also has a full size pull out sofa bed. Plenty of storage throughout. Perfect to share with another family.

The Island has very good seafood restaurants or enjoy cooking fresh seafood from Skinners, the local seafood market. The Island has many attractions such as an 18 hole golf course, souvenir shops, a bakery, charter fishing, an Estuarium, bird sanctuary and Fort Gaines. If you prefer a night out, the local pubs are a lot of fun with great southern hospitality. The kids can walk across the street to enjoy great ice cream or rent movies and bicycles.

This is a place you will come back to year after year. We have been bringing our two families to the Island for 10 years. It is truly a great place for kids and adults to play, swim, fish, go crabbing and most of all to relax.

                        I would highly recommend this condo and Dauphin Island to any family looking for a relaxing vacation. The condo is large, well maintained and everyone on the island is friendly. The weather did not cooperate but we found other things to do. We took the Mobile Bay Ferry to Gulf Shores one day. We went deep sea fishing another day and caught 29 fish. We went kayaking and planned to rent bicycles but ran out of time. We plan to return to Dauphin Island in the future but later in the year so we can experience warm sun on the beach.

                        Recommended for: Age 55+, families with young children.

                        Owner response: Thank you! Glad you had a good time despite the weather. Let me know when you plan to visit again!

                        If you are looking for a no-frills, clean, LARGE condo on Dauphin Island BOOK THIS NOW! Our family just vacationed there this month and had a fabulous time. The pictures do not do it justice! The unit is a true ground floor unit with a walkout to the pool from the patio. The beach was immediately beyond. AMAZING. We traveled with our kids, ages 10 and 13. It was great to sit on the patio at night and have a cold drink with my husband after we were done swimming in the ocean or pool for the day and still be able to keep an eye on the kids while they closed down the pool with all the other kids in the complex. Condo- The condo is clean and modestly decorated. If you enjoy elaborately decorated Tommy Bahama condos with tons of expensive nicknacks that your kids can break, this is not for you. Personally, I am not picky and I do not like to worry on vacation. I threw an extra clean sheet on the couch and both chairs in the living room and we were comfy. Everything in working order. THREE bathrooms for THREE bedrooms. Lots of space and privacy from the kids. Our beds were comfortable and the kids slept late every day with no complaints. Pool- The kids loved it. There was a maintenance man cleaning, testing and adding chlorine every morning. Plenty of chairs. Beach- Sand just like Destin on a much more expansive beach. Water was warm but murky...we came after a tropical storm so I don't know what "normal" is. Yes, you can see oil rigs on the horizon but I forgot all about it in the day and the lights at night are lovely on the horizon. The condo had several beach chairs for our use and a net for crab hunting the HUGE crabs at night. Food- This was the trickiest aspect of the trip. GO TO Walmart or another grocery before arriving on the island to get groceries and essentials. Food on the island is expensive whether in grocery or restaurant. We brought food onto the island and supported the local businesses after we ran out. Everyone was super friendly and quick to give advice or directions. The Island- Quaint, small, quiet, safe, friendly, beautiful. Thanks to the owners and the locals for sharing their little slice of heaven with our family. It was hard to leave and we can't wait to come back! Joe & Angie Lang & Family

                        Best spring break in years!! This condo is even better than the photos and descriptions, and all the kind words about dealing with co-owner Wayne are completely true. We rented on short notice, and were even able to extend a day with a mere phone call. My teen and pre-teen sons loved the wide beaches and dunes. They flew kites, dug massive holes with shovels, and built forts of driftwood. The condo is clean and shipshape. It is close enough to bike to the town center (some beach houses are at the FAR end of the island), and yet uncrowded and quiet. The option of a pool is great. We hiked through the bird sanctuary, went to the Estuarium, got daily seafood from Skinners and pastries from the Lighthouse Bakery. I can't say enough positive things -- we'll be back!

                        Myself and a group of ladies stayed here for a 4 days "GIRLS GETAWAY WEEKEND". I would say this is by far the most beautiful place any of us have been. The condo was wonderful, very clean and everything we needed was there. There was construction being done on the patios of the condo but this did in NO way interupt our stay. I wanted to say "THANKS" to Wayne for all his help and allowing us the opportunity to stay. I know you got several calls and emails prior to our visit and all I can say is you are a "VERY PATIENT" man dealing with all of us ladies. I would recommend this property to anyone. The Island was just BEAUTIFUL, the time we were there was off season so we pretty much had the beach to ourselves. We visited two of the local restaurants and had pizza from across the street one night. If you're into chain restaurants and lots of stores this is not the place for you. It is a laid back Island and I hope it remains that way !!

                        This was my first experience on Dauphin Island, and we loved it! It was everything as described and more! We loved the floor plan of the condo and walking right out to the pool! The board walk to the beach was also right there. It was peaceful and relaxing! Plenty of beach for everyone (unlike some places like Destin). It is like taking a step back in time to where going to the beach is about going to the beach, seeing and swimming with dauphins, building sand castles, boogie boarding. The owner was very easy to work with and was always prompt to call me back. I would highly recommend this condo to someone who loves the beach and is looking to get away from it all!

                      About the owner: Hi, Our names are Wayne & Dottie Ecker and Steve & Janet Aspin, from Birch Run, Michigan. We love visiting the Island and hope to spend our winter months there when we all retire in the years ahead. Our children have loved vacationing on Dauphin Island with us every year, they ride bikes and walk into town and we never have to worry. It is a southern 'Mayberry' town.

                      Why the Owner Chose Dauphin Island:
                      Vacationed here for 5 years before we purchased our condo. We fell in love with the Island, there is no place like it.

                      The peacefulness, no traffic, no chain restaurants or department stores, great southern hospitality, and most of all the uncrowded white sandy beaches. Direct access to pool and beach from ground floor unit. Easy loading and unloading from the parking lot to our unit.
