About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 2 1/2 Baths with an outside shower, (Sleeps 12}

We are glad you found our vacation home. For us, it has been our home for the past seven years. We are excited about others finding out what we know. We are now making our house available to rent and now everyone can find out how Dauphin Island is one of the Gulf Coast’s best kept secrets. We feel like we have the best of both worlds here. We have one of the most spectacular views from our back deck looking out over one of Dauphin Island’s inlets, with a long view toward Mobile Bay and the entry to the Gulf of Mexico. Our front porch offers another amazing water view with a stunning sunrise. We are just a couple of minutes from the beach so we have you covered whichever you prefer during your stay. You could hang out by the pool or take that short journey to the snow white sands of the island. There is a boat lift available for the avid fishermen and pleasure seekers. No worries about the hassle of launching your boat each morning!

Our house has a great layout inside. You could come with just your family or use it for a multi-family gathering place. We have two bedrooms on each side of a large family room with jack-and-jill baths in between providing plenty of privacy for each family if you are sharing your vacation with others. The downstairs 5th bedroom room is perfect for the kids with queen bunk beds and a pull out couch but is not accessible from inside the house. There is also a half bath that is easily accessible from the pool deck. The kitchen is open toward the family room giving it that warm, open feeling. It is fabulous for the cooler seasons as well because you can open the doors and feel the breeze through the screen doors.

Our back deck is a winning part of this story. You will not want to come back inside once you have relaxed on the deck and simply gotten lost in the view. There is always a beautiful sunset. You will see boats passing by and the peacefulness of the water on a calm or breezy day. While you relax on the back deck, you can keep an eye on the children swimming below in the pool while soaking in the hot tub. I told you that you won’t want to go back in.

No matter how long your stay is, you will not lack for things to do. Right from our home you will be able to swim, fish, kayak and go boating. Dauphin Island is a great place to go for long walks, bike rides, bird watching, or just laying out on the beach or by the pool. You can even catch a ferry that runs between Dauphin Island and Gulf Shores for extra shopping and entertainment.

Dauphin Island will give you what most people want from a vacation. A chance to escape the busy and noisy life. When you go home, you will know that you have been rested and recharged. We hope you will love our home as much as we do. Thank you, Steve & Cathy Vickers

About Steve Vickers

We have lived in the Theodore, AL area all of our lives. Our children were born here and now have families of their own. We have been very blessed to be able to purchase this home and would love to share it with your family.

Steve Vickers purchased this house in 2010

Why Steve Vickers chose Pass Drury

Dauphin Island has always been a special place to us. It is close enough to home that we can jump in the car and come down any time we feel like it. This is where we brought our children when they were young and could not imagine wanting to go anywhere else.

What makes this house unique

Our favorite times at Dauphin Island are when the whole family is here. We hang out and visit on the porches and the kids love the pool. We have a pontoon boat and we frequently take it out to sand bars and for sunset cruises. There are many dolphins around our area and they are lots of fun to watch as they are playing in the water. The kayaks also keep everyone entertained. We have three kayaks on the property and we will be glad to let you use them instead of renting. Our home is on an inlet with a no wake zone, which makes it very safe even for the little ones to kayak. We also fish right from our dock when we don't feel like taking the boat. Ft. Gaines and the Dauphin Island Sea Lab and Estuarium are just a bike ride away. We have several bikes available, if needed, of various sizes so you won't have to rent them or bring them with you. The ferry can be taken to Ft. Morgan for easy access to Gulf Shores. You have to try out The Bakery for breakfast and The Common Loon for lunch or dinner while you're here, too! The public beach is a couple of minutes away or you could go to the West End beach (about a five minute drive), which has many amenities, like water slides, music, parasailing, rentals, and a concession stand. There is a small fee for parking, but it is well worth not having to walk a long way to the beach.

Paradise Found!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd stay at Island Pleasure and we will continue to return! The home offers something for everyone - kayaks and bikes, a pool and hot tub, and plenty of space to relax and catch up with one another. Steve and Cathy are very easy to work with and their home is the perfect place to spend time with family. I miss sitting on the back deck with my sisters watching the beautiful sunsets and will always cherish the memories we've made at Island Pleasure. Can't wait for our next visit!

Multi generation family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had an extended family vacation with 12 adults and 2 toddlers, the house was perfect. Able to dock our boats and the pool was enjoyed by everyone. We rode bikes, kayaked and cruised around in golf cart. We went deep sea fishing and cooked almost all meals...the kitchen was well equipped and had everything we needed. Will definitely be booking again!

What a splendid home to rent for a party of ten.

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay. The only drawback was possibly the bunk room downstairs. Three boys intending to stay down there were unable to be together due to sleeping arrangements however the rest of the rooms were very clean and spacious. The living and dining/kitchen area were great to feed the three families staying. The dish washer and washer/dryer are a great asset as well as the wet bar. The pool, hot tub, decks and dock were utilized to the full extent. The golf cart was nice to be able to utilize to see the neighborhood. If we decide to take family vacations to the South again we will definitely check into the availability of this home.

The owners were also very nice and quick to respond to questions and concerns. It was nice to meet Steve personally and receive the southern hospitality.

June from Iowa.
