Why Dauphin Island Real Estate, Inc. chose Dauphin Island
We love Dauphin Island, a wonder of nature and full of history - a barrier island on the Gulf of Mexico . The population is about 1,300. The town is included in the Mobile metropolitan statistical area. The island was named for Louis XIV's great-grandson and heir, the Dauphin. Our 'laid-back' atmosphere is prized by folks who enjoy serenity and natural beauty. The eastern, wider portion of the island, is shaded by thick stands of maritime pine trees, but the narrow, western part of the island features scrub growth and few trees. Dauphin Island is home to Fort Gaines, Dauphin Island Sea Lab, The Estuarium public aquarium, the Dauphin Island Airport, boat ramps, a fishing pier located on the Island's eastern end, historic sites, several restaurants. Beaches attract tourism, and fishing is a popular activity in the waters around the island. The island is connected to the mainland by a 3.5 mile long bridge. Although the entire island is a bird sanctuary, the main one is the 164-acre Audubon Bird Sanctuary. Dauphin Island is the first landfall encountered by many birds as they migrate north from Central and South America, and as a consequence many species can be found resting there before continuing their journey. In 1519, the Spanish explorer Alonso Álvarez de Pineda was the first documented European to visit, staying long enough to map the island with remarkable accuracy. The island's French history began on January 31, 1699, when the explorer Pierre Le Moyne, sieur d'Iberville, D'Iberville later decided to locate a port for Fort Louis de La Louisiane (Mobile). Fort Gaines on the eastern tip of the island was built between 1821 and 1848. It was occupied by Confederate forces in 1861, and captured by Federal troops during the Battle of Mobile Bay. The phrase, 'Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead,' was spoken by U. S. Admiral David Farragut just a few hundred yards from Dauphin Island's shore. We love 'The Island' as much as we know you will!
What makes this House unique
There are so many reasons to love Dauphin Island. The atmosphere is quiet and laid back ( you are on Island Time ). The beaches are beautiful, white sand, miles of beach to walk and enjoy shelling, fishing, birding, watching the dolphins (lots of them)! The SUNSETS are fantastic...Dauphin Island is Alabama's 'Sunset Capital' Good'Nuff provides you with an awesome deck overlooking the views to the south, east and west. You are also close to the island-wide bike trail which is great for biking, running, or walking. There are no traffic lights on the island and life is truly low key. This will be the most relaxing vacation you can remember.
This home is absolutely beautiful and had everything to make our stay comfortable!! We loved that every room has it’s own private bathroom for privacy. The views from the deck are amazing!! We watched dolphins play every day!! If you want to escape reality, this is the place!!
Fabulous house on the island!
We have stayed at many VRBO properites over the years and this was the BEST furnished home we have ever rented. The kitchen had everything we needed and then some. The furnishings and the design of the house was perfect. We had an amazing 2 week stay!!
Great vacation rental.
We had a great time staying here. House was very nicely decorated and the kitchen was well stocked. Nice fenced in area for our dog to take care of business.
Amazing! This was the first time we visited the island. I grew up on the ocean so my standards are a little high. We travel to beach locations on most of our vacations. The whole goal is to find a place that has great people, great seafood, great rentals, great beaches and most of all a place we can literally "checkout" from the real world for a little bit. We definitely got that and more! The house was perfect. In a perfect location. The house has everything you could need and more! The beach near the house was clean, water clear, people friendly. The porch was great for hanging out on during the day when we weren't in the water (no having to carry umbrellas down,chairs, coolers like we usually do- the house is close enough). The beds were awesome- slept the best I have in years. Thank you for opening your house to us. We will be back😁
It was a wonderful vacation, dream come true.
This was a special vacation for my family. Everything was so wonderful. We spent a week at Dauphin Island and enjoyed every minute.
