Relax & enjoy the serenity of Dauphin Island! Our beachfront Condo is our favorite vacation place!

Explore the many activities on the island such as kayaking, biking, fishing, swimming, surfing, or visiting the Estuarium, shops, restaurants, and many historical landmarks.

The Island is loaded with history such as Ft. Gaines, the Indian Shell Mounds, the Ancient Oaks, Shell Island Light House, & Middle Bay Light House.

About Janet L Hyde

I'm a Georgia native and an avid beach goer. I currently live near Sandy Springs, GA and visit the island every chance I get! I've been in the interior design and hospitality business for many, many years. Still loving it!

Janet L Hyde purchased this condo in 2005

Why Janet L Hyde chose Alabama

My family and I fell in love with Dauphin Island. Its sugar white sand beaches, French heritage & history, and peaceful atmosphere made this an unforgetable place. I take great pride in maintaining a clean and beautiful home-away-from-home for my guests. I enjoy keeping the design updated and fresh.

What makes this condo unique

We enjoy spending time on the patio overlooking the ocean, going for long walks on Dauphin Island and connecting Sand Island, collecting shells, eating wonderful fresh local seafood, visiting with friends on the island, shopping in nearby Fairhope, and relaxing in the sun/swimming in the ocean. Paradise! :-)

Wonderful island respite away from the fast pace

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed the time I was at your condo. The beach decor was great and the view and sound of the ocean was so calming. On clear days you can see Sand Island Lighthouse. It was quiet and spacious place to come back to each day.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is exactly like the pictures. It was very clean and well decorated. The balcony view was gorgeous! The owner was easy to work with and our stay was flawless. The island is very quiet and we had the beach to ourselves the whole trip. The pizza across the street and down the road a bit was very good as well! Will stay again!

Perfect family vacation spot

The property was just as described. Very nicely decorated and wonderful view from the balcony. The kids enjoyed the pool after spending the day at the beach. We will return.

Welcome Vacation

  • 4 of 5

We had a really good time in Dauphin Island. The condo was as advertised - very nicely furnished, all amenities. While it might not seem important, the mattresses were fantastic!! After night #1, both of my husband and my son wanted to find out what the mattresses were so we could get the same at home!

Beach was very nice and pretty quiet. It was not a crowded beach at all and a good walking beach.

A few suggestions...

  • 5 of 5

This property looks exactly like it does in the photos. And, as many say, it is very tastefully decorated with nice (and comfortable) furniture. The location is ideal if you want access to a pool and the beach. We used both daily. We spent most of our time on the balcony when we were at the condo. We ate all of our meals out there, coffee and a book in the a.m., glass of wine in the p.m. With that said, if you plan to go in the summer months, there are A LOT of families with kids so the pool is LOUD when you are on the balcony. We have kids so we didn't mind so much. :) Otherwise, the island never really feels busy. We saw dolphins almost every morning, too!

My suggestions to make the stay at the condo even better:

1) Update linens and towels - obviously this condo gets rented out a lot resulting in many towels and sheets being frayed and torn including some stained towels and blankets. I washed all towels and some sheets we used first because it didn't all "look" clean, only to find out that they were stained. :( And, maybe just take the bath rugs out completely and provide towel bath mats for when people bathe....the rugs looked very grungy and dirty. I just folded them up and set them aside when we were there.

2) It would be nice if the condo was stocked with certain staples such as, toilet paper, garbage bags, coffee filters, dish soap, and aluminum foil. We bought all of that and left it there. I understand that it is not necessary for owners to provide that but it would be good to know in advance what is needed. I'd prefer to just have to buy food when I do a vacation like this.

3) Adding grab bars in the shower stalls would be ideal (there is literally nothing to hold onto when getting in or out) or something on the bottom of the tubs to prevent slipping.

4) Even though the table on the balcony is awesome, it's huge! It takes up a lot of space and it would be nice to have a couple comfy patio chairs out there.

Again, these are just suggestions to make the stay even better.

We would definitely stay at this condo again.

Owner's Response: Hello Becky! Thank you for your suggestions. I do take the suggestions of my guests seriously and try to accommodate. I visited my condo for Labor Day and refreshed the sheets, blankets, towels, & bath rugs. I typically do this the end of every summer season as this is the busiest season for rentals. My cleaning service also knows to check the condo for any wear & tear and issues every time they clean. (Occasionally someone will stain a sheet or towel and hope that no one notices.) I used to keep more handy items in the kitchen and it is just too difficult to keep them replenished for each guest. I hope you will visit again soon! Best, Janet
