  • The place to go for a very relaxing beach and pool experience!

    "We visited the beach club in mid-October, and speaking for a family of 4 young girls who love the beach and the pool, the trip could not have gone any better! Weather: The weather ranged between the low 80's and upper 70's as our high each day, and don't believe that we saw a cloud in the sky the entire trip. The outdoor pools were turning a little chilly (so we used the heated indoor pool on many occassions), but the ocean was still at a very reasonable temperature to go in. The nights were very pleasant, which allowed us to leave the master bedroom door open to fall asleep to the sound of the waves. Condo Unit: Daryl and Nancy have done a tremenous job providing a gorgeous condo with about every amenity you would need. We cooked many meals inside the condo, and the kitchen had it all, which made cooking hassle-free! We had our 18 month old with us, so using the condo's high chair and pack-n-play made for very easy traveling on our part! Also, made good usage of the pool toys, surf boards, chairs, etc...a closet nearly overflowing with beach-gear! In terms of the condo...perfect! An unbelievable 17th floor view... comfortable beds, chairs, and couches...and soothing decor. I can't say enough good things about care that Daryl and Nancy put into this unit. Beach Club, in general: The Beach Club provides a lot of great amenties, but it definitely slows down in October (which is actually one of the perks we liked for a very relaxing trip). The Club House restaurants and snack stations were all closed when we were there, which meant we had to eat elsewhere for those days that we spent at that pool. They did provide many activities during the week, and while there were some enjoyable ones (movie night at the pool, smores on the beach, popsicles after lunch), many were a little underwhelming or too expensive. The playground on site is nearly unusable for very small kids (i.e. 3 and under), as there is a lot of rust and chipping metal on much of the playground flooring, and the swings are meant for older kids (we expected to spend more time there, but it just wasn't reasonable with small kids). But the Beach Club is just a few minute walk to the local restaurant and ice cream shop...a frequented destination for us! Overall, our family had a blast on this trip! We will definitely be returning in the near future."

  • Great Vacation

    "Great Vacation spent at Grand Pointe. The condo was very large with each bathroom having its own king bed and full bath. The balcony was fantastic with a superb view of the gulf. Seemed to always have a cool breeze on the balcony. Pool both inside and outside, and the beach just steps away from the condo. Condo was very clean, luxuriously furnished, and we will definitely stay there again. Dealing with owner was a pleasure."

  • Gena and Ken Cranford

    "We just got home from "The Island" yesterday! We had so much fun and hated to leave. Your home was beautiful. We love the spaciousness, the comfy beds, and the beautiful views from the front and back porches! Dauphin Island is beautiful and peaceful. No traffic! Our daughter was sick and unable to go with us as planned. She was heartbroken and wants us to go back so she can go! We plan to look at for a long weekend in February or March! I will be in touch! Thanks again!"

Known as the "Heart of Dixie," Alabama borders Tennessee, Georgia, Mississippi and Florida. Though the capital of Alabama is Montgomery, the most populated city is Birmingham and the oldest city is Mobile, which was founded by French colonists.

For anyone looking to escape cold, wet winters, the climate in Alabama ranges from mild to hot with summer temperatures climbing to 100 degrees - perfect for a warm getaway. Winters are less harsh here, with temperatures ranging from 30 to 60 degrees.

History buffs will enjoy exploring any of the state’s 36 national historic landmarks and more than 1,200 locations that are part of the National Register of Historic Places. All of Alabama is steeped in rich and interesting facts from its beginning up until the present time.

The museum is home to more than 1,500 permanent pieces relating to space exploration. The U.S. Space & Rocket Center also offers two camp programs where people can stay on-site and learn more about space with the U.S. Space Camp or aviation with the Aviation Challenge. Along with displays, you can also check out the Spacedome Theater, Rocket Park and Education Training Center that houses NASA’s Educator Resource Center.

Along with the elephants, you can visit with rhinos, giraffes, birds and other creatures.

With more than 500 animals, there’s plenty to see here, including elephants, penguins, zebras and more.

USS Alabama Battleship Memorial Park: One of the country’s most unique military attractions, The USS Alabama Battleship Memorial Park provides an exciting experience for the whole family. Located on the western shore of Mobile Bay, the park features a collection of wartime aircraft and ships. The USS Alabama is a national historic landmark and a great way to pay respects to soldiers who have fallen in the past.

Bryant-Denny Stadium: In Tuscaloosa, you’ll find the home of the University of Alabama and Bryant-Denny Stadium. Originally the football shrine was built to honor the university’s first president, it was amended later to also honor the famous Alabama football coach Paul “Bear” Bryant. Alabama is also home to one of the United States’ oldest college rivalries between Auburn University and the University of Alabama. If you visit during football season, taking in a game between the Crimson Tide and the Tigers is sure to be entertaining both on and off the field.

Huntsville Botanical Garden: While visiting Huntsville, be sure to stop at the Huntsville Botanical Garden. Free and open year-round, it’s home to a butterfly house as well as a variety of gardens, including aquatic, wildflower, fern, rose and others. Spend the day meandering through each space and savor the natural beauty everywhere you look.
