  • A very hospitable home. Highly recommended!

    "A great place. A home away from home. Excellent location for the fishing enthusiast and the island is the perfect locale for a family gathering. Exactly what we were hoping for. We're long time visitors of orange beach and this is amongst the best of our stays. Thanks for having us. We'll be back!"

  • Great place to stay

    "We stayed at the Blue Lagoon over the winter and loved it. It was comfortable and a great place to stay and enjoy Ono Island as well as the whole area. We have stayed in the area for the last nine years and this was the best ever. It is close to the gulf as well as many activities and restaurants."

  • Family Paradise Found

    "Perfect vacation spot for our family. Plenty of room for all of us and very relaxing. Fun for young children (ages 2-7 yrs), adults, and grandparents. The owner was always helpful and prompt to answer any questions. We enjoyed fishing off the dock, boating in the clear water and colorful sunsets. The house gives you the feeling of privacy and safety. I was concerned that the family would not be happy without a beachfront, but everyone enjoyed the private white sand beach. The location is only minutes away from the gulf beach, dining choices, and grocery store. 'O' Yes', I hope we can return again."

The Benefits of Ono Island Vacation Rentals

Ono Island is a long barrier island located in southern Baldwin County on the Gulf of Mexico in Alabama. It is bordered by Bayou St. John to the north and Old River to the south. Nearby communities include Orange Beach, Alabama to the west and Perdido Key, Florida to the southeast.

Unless you own or are renting a property on the island, you will not be able to get past the security guards at the entrance to the island. For those staying on the island, this is one of the great draws of the area. Privacy and seclusion are almost guaranteed as the only real way you can visit is if you own a home or are a guest in one of the homes.

Many of the homes are located along quiet stretches of beach. Staying in one of the Ono Island waterfront rentals gives you the feeling of having your own little bit of paradise. Take long strolls along the beach, look out for dolphins from the deck and enjoy a relaxing vacation.
