Property description

Dauphin Island is a great place for a vacation during any season. Check our calendar for available dates.
This 1100 ft. fully equipped 2-bedroom-2 bathroom condo is waiting for you on Dauphin Island. Located on the first floor for easy access with private parking right in front, it is a short walk to the pool or the boardwalk to the beach. The condo has reliable wi-fi, free long distance and local telephone service, and a new 40-inch HD TV and blue ray player.

The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need for preparing and serving meals. There are plenty of towels, beach towels, and bed linens. We try to keep the pantry stocked with the basics (salt, pepper, hot sauce) so you don't have to bring them. We invite you to use anything in the pantry, just replenish it if you use all of anything. When you book I will provide a complete list of pantry items available in the condo. We also supply starter rolls of paper towels, TP, and some laundry soap but you will need to bring more for your stay.

Dauphin Island beaches are beautiful and clean. Bring your suntan lotion and sandals and leave the stress behind as you relax on beautiful Dauphin Island.
The beaches aren't crowded and it is almost like having your own private beach.

Our condo unit owns the property to the beach and you can enjoy the beautiful uncrowded creamy white sand beaches and warm gulf water. The gulf is assessable by a boardwalk with seating areas to enjoy beach sunrises and sunsets. The island is beautiful year round with sunny summer days and cool evening coastal breezes. Winter offers moderate temperatures and is usually warm enough to enjoy walks on the beach and other outdoor activities. When we visited in January 2016 we walked barefoot on the beach and waded in the Gulf water.


This is a non smoking unit with no pets allowed. The condo association does not allow renters to bring boats or trailers on the property. We rent by the week (Sat. - Sat.) or month only, see calendar for availability. The rental price covers all charges including clean-up fees. A $100.00 reservation/security deposit is added to the weekly rental rate. This security deposit will be returned after departure and inspection of the unit.

Dauphin Island is a very laid back and non-commercialized community but there is plenty to occupy your week. Visit Fort Gaines (a real civil war fort), fish off the pier or charter a boat for sight seeing or deep sea fishing, take the ferry to Gulf Shores/ Fort Morgan, visit the Estuarium or the Audubon Bird Sanctuary. There is a newly constructed skate board park on the Island. Several restaurants and a bakery are located on the island and fresh seafood is available to prepare in your fully equipped kitchen. The local “Ship and Shore” provides all your shopping needs. It is only 30 miles to Mobile if you want to go off island and Bellingrath Gardens (20 miles) makes a great day trip.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: My husband and I are retired and enjoy traveling. I am a retired art teacher and my husband worked in information systems. Although we are retired we keep busy. I am active in the Missouri State Art Education Association and my husband served as Mayor of our community for 28 years. He retired as Mayor in 2015 and we have enjoyed having more time to travel.

Why the Owner Chose Dauphin Island, AL, USA:
My husband and I fell in love with Dauphin Island while visiting our daughter who owns a condo in the same complex. Dauphin Island provides a great vacation for families because it offers the safe and relaxing atmosphere that only a small town can provide.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Our condo is well maintained and very comfortable with lots of extras. We want our guest to feel at home. You can see the gulf from the condo's gulf room. It is an easy walk from the condo to a beautiful creamy white uncrowded beach. The property between the complex and the beach is owned by the complex so there is lots of privacy.
