Dauphin Island is truly a place like no other. Away from the hustle and bustle of city life, you’ll feel the difference as soon as you drive over the bay on the magnificent high rise bridge and take in a deep breath of fresh Gulf air.
A historically significant location, Dauphin Island and the the fort, Fort Gaines, was vitally important in the Civil War. The fort, now retired, stands guard overlooking Mobile Bay and the Gulf of Mexico and today, Dauphin Island thrives upon its emphasis on low-key, family oriented vacations. Forget road congestion, water parks and outlet malls – the island doesn’t even have a need for a traffic light. Instead, envision bike paths, walking trails, seven miles of white sandy beach and simplicity, centered upon outdoor recreation and the environment.
Relax & enjoy the serenity of Dauphin Island. Our beach front condominium is located in the newest building on the island, 'Holiday Isle' It is a seven story condominium complex with a gorgeous view of the beach. Enjoy the beach, read a book on the balcony, watch the dolphins, find seashells in the sand or go out and explore the many activities that our island has to offer. Covered parking is available at our condo door. Our condo is located on the same floor as the social center and the fitness center. The Social Center is where you can hang out with family and friends, watch the big screen plasma TV, cook in the large kitchen, or just gaze at the pool, beach and water views. Elevators & stairs are located catty corner to our unit with access to the first floor lobby, the pools, the sauna and the boardwalk to the beach. Our unit is professionally decorated with quality furniture and accessories for your enjoyment.
The Holiday Isle complex is gated and offers 24 hour patrolled security. There are 2 levels of covered parking. The tennis court is on the third floor with additional parking and a wonderful view of the Mobile Bay and the Bay Bridge. One of the pools is an outdoor pool that is half covered so you can sit and watch the kids in cool comfort. Or, go to the other side of the pool and work on your tan! The outside pool is gated and controlled by an access gate. When you exit the access gate, you walk across the wooden boardwalk to the beach. The inside pool is great for rainy days and evening swims. The hot tub, sauna and steam room are located next to the indoor pool. The lobby is staffed from 9-5 every day with friendly island natives. The lobby has an incredible rounded column style salt water tank of beautiful fish as its focal point.
Take a long stroll on the white sand beach. Relax, read a good book and listen to the waves. Go antiquing in nearby towns. Wait until you see the crabs that scuttle around at night! Take a bucket and your flashlight and try to catch them! If you want to go out for dinner or entertainment, there are close restaurants and bars on the island. The restaurants, shopping and entertainment of Mobile, Alabama is less than 30 minutes away and the CASINOS await you in Biloxi, Mississippi. Zipping over to the Biloxi casinos takes approximately an hour. Gulf Shores, Alabama has a huge outlet mall and entertainment strip and it is just a car ferry ride over the bay away.
Enjoy the golf course, just a few minutes away, with its beach views. Go boating. Rent bikes and ride on the trails throughout the island. Visit the gorgeous and quiet Bird Sanctuary. Rentals are available for boats & fishing. Charter boats are available at Pelican Reef Marina.
The Island is loaded with history such as Ft. Gaines, the Indian Shell Mounds, the Ancient Oaks, The Shell Island Light House, & Middle Bay LightHouse. It is a great place to enjoy every holiday & local events. Check out the Dauphin Island, AL Chamber of Commerce website for information about events such as Mardi Gras, The Fishing Rodeo, The Sailing Regatta, Bike Week and more.
If you are ready for a fantastic get away, please visit our island and stay in our condominium. Our motto? 'It's 5 O'Clock Somewhere!' Call or email me for more information. :)

About the owner: We are the original owners of the condo. We have enjoyed many happy times here and we welcome you to visit and create your own wonderful memories on the beautiful Dauphin Island!
Why the Owner Chose Dauphin Island, AL, USA:
Dauphin Island is the best kept secret of the United States! A totally unspoiled beach without the commercialization of neon signs, pancake houses, putt putt golf courses and crowds and crowds of people. When you cross the bridge onto the island, you just breathe a huge sigh of relief and all anxiety fades away. Google 'Dauphin Island' and see all the great things about this island beach resort!
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The view, especially at sunset, is my favorite part of our unit. Hearing the waves and feeling the ocean breeze is just mesmerizing. Walking the beach in the morning and hunting for crabs at night with my kids are my favorite activities. I enjoy the facilities at the complex as well. We are located on the best floor, the second floor, with covered parking and quick access to the fitness center and the social center which is also located on the same floor.
