Space 2,300 sq. ft.
Property type house

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

We purchased Beach Walk in December 2009 and finished a total renovation of the property in the first half of 2010. Not only will you find new carpet and fresh paint but new furnishings and a totally updated kitchen with all the amenities.

A large deck overlooks the gulf and you can walk straight to the white sand beach on our private boardwalk and we provide a wagon and pull carts to help you carry all your towels, chairs, toys, etc. When you return from the beach there is an enclosed outdoor shower with hot and cold water. The home is kid friendly and yet has all the adult comforts you want for a beach vacation.

We invite you to enjoy our beach getaway for your next vacation.

About Susan

On our first extended family vacation to Dauphin Island we had photos taken on the beach by a wonderful photographer Patrick--Memories Photography from Fairhope, Alabama. We plan to make this a tradition as our family grows.

Susan purchased this house in 2009

Why Susan chose Dauphin Island

We vacationed here with our family and stayed in Desoto Landing and fell in love with the area. Desoto Landing is a gated community on the east end of the island that offers all the benefits we were looking for. A secure environment and a pool, tennis courts and playground. Our family also enjoys golfing so that was another benefit. We started looking for property on that trip and returned several times until we found the perfect home for us; right on the water and we can just walk out the door and be on the beach. The island is very laid back and a great contrast for our busy lives at home, and yet there is plenty to do on the island and the surrounding area when we want something different.

What makes this house unique

We enjoy playing all kinds of games--shuffleboard, ladder golf, washers and more. There is a large covered area that provides shade for those hot days when you need a break from the sun or if there is a rainy day it won't stop the fun. You can still see the beach and hear the waves while you play undercover--lots of fun for all ages.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. We really enjoyed eating outside and our walks on the beach. Our 4 year old loved the pool...The first few days there were biting flies but the weather cooled down and ran them off. Dauphin Island has been a fantastic vacation. The photos of the property on-line don't do it justice. Thanks again, we hope to come back again one day.

Beautiful Beachfront Home in Gated Community
average rating of 4.5 based on 47 reviews

We loved the house and the proximity to the beach, as well as the fun things to do on the island.

  • 4 of 5

The house was fully stocked and very convenient for 4 adults and 6 kids. The beach and water were a little underwhelming, but that's really not the property owner's fault.

Amazing House in Desoto Landing!

  • 5 of 5

This house is all you could want on Dauphin Island. We just got home late last night from a fantastic week at this property located at 609 Hernando. Wonderfully maintained, stocked with extras throughout, a fabulous kitchen with all you need to cook gourmet meals, a boardwalk literally to the surf, beach games, toys, wagon, all included and available for your use. Privacy and shade on the beach from the trees.

Pack and play, booster seat, kiddie forks, spoons. It's unbelievable and so convenient. The beds are comfortable and the bedding is much nicer than most rental properties.

You will not be disappointed!
