Overview

About the property

Interested in Purchasing Unit? Contact Owner for Details

Beautifully decorated, 2 bedroom / 2 bath, bottom floor condo located in the center of non-commercial Dauphin Island, Alabama. Steps from the pool. Park in front of door and still have a clear view of the Gulf of Mexico from the patio. No steps, no parking deck, no hassle! Enjoy the white sand beaches and beautiful Gulf of Mexico without the hussle and bustle or high cost of commercial beach locations. Perfect for quiet get-a-ways with the family.

Unlike other condos in the area, ours is on the first floor where parking is at the front door - no stairs or elevators. The back door opens up to one of the two pools (condo has a heated and an unheated pool), - making it the perfect unit for a family with small children who need to be supervised while swimming...right from the patio! It's also great for mature couples who do not want to go up and down floors to get to the pool. But don't think you won't have an ocean view..... even on the bottom floor, you can view the Gulf from the patio!

Also making it the perfect family unit is a 'Bunk Room' - that can sleep up to 5 kids comfortably! Don't forget the pull-out couch in the living area for any 'extras'....

The master bedroom has a king size bed and the master bath has a jaccuzi tub. All rooms have TVs, DVD players and VCR's. Plenty of board games, poker chips and cards and I-Pod player for entertainment for all ages.

Our condominium complex is the farthest from the public beach and there is empty beach for 1/4 mile to the West so it is the least crowded condo on the beach. With two pools, we also have the luxury of 'spreading out' when lounging poolside - so you won't feel crowded or have to fight for pool chairs.

Spend an afternoon sitting on the beach or fill your days/evenings with endless walks on Sand Island. Every day you will experience a magnificent sunset from the beach or from the boardwalk.

If you want to get away from the peace and serenity of the Island, it is only a 30 minute drive to historic Mobile, Alabama or a 45 minute ferry ride across Mobile Bay to Gulf Shores, Alabama for endless entertainment and shopping. Golf courses are available just north of the Island.

If you are unable to preview the video of our unit on this web site, i will be happy to email you a link to it. It is worth viewing!

Keywords: # 110 at The Inn at Dauphin Island. Quiet, Uncrowded, Beachfront, condo, bottom floor unit, perfect for families with children.

About Stephanie Constantine

We are a family of four who live in Mobile, Alabama. We love Dauphin Island!! We stay there once a month in the summer and a few other times during the year - when it is not rented. We take pride in it as our second home and hope our renters will look at it as their 'home away from home' too! It is a safe community where our teenage kids can 'roam the Island' with their friends and stay out of trouble!

Stephanie Constantine purchased this condo in 2003

Why Stephanie Constantine chose Alabama

My family rented this unit with some friends when my husband returned from a tour of duty in Kuwait in 2003. The condo was less than a year old. We loved it and bought it the next month.... We have survived two major hurricanes since then... Ivan (2004) and Katrina (2005)... both required total redecorating of the bottom floor units due to flooding.

What makes this condo unique

The beach is right in front of our condo...easy walk and even in the summer, the beaches and pool areas are not crowded and are quiet. Some condo properties are close to the public beaches and they tend to be more crowded on the beaches. Our condo has empty beach to the West with no public access or other condominiums.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was our first time to Dauphine Island and we absolutely loved it. Not commercialized, busy, or crowded which made it a perfect place to feel safe to let small kids have a little freedom. While there are not the other attractions you find at other beaches, we found that to be a huge positive because it was much less distracting for us and the kids. We just focused on playing on the beach and in the pools the whole time without having to plan to go here and there. No one got bored while we were there and we never left the condo. To top it off, this condo is on the bottom floor so we did not have to lug kids beach and pool toys through a lobby and up the stairs or elevator. Access the pool and beach directly from your private patio and we were still able to see the sandy beach and ocean from the bottom floor. Thank you so much, we will plan to come back and highly recommend this island and condo.

Little Slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed your condo for the second time and it's beginning to feel like home! The beach is different every day and we saw the dolphins many times. Its so nice to step out the door and be right on the Gulf. We had a blast at the Mardi Gras parade right on the island. See you next year!

Will definitely be going back!!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay on the island and this unit was a great home away from home! After spending an afternoon in Gulf Shores I would recommend anyone looking for a relaxing get away to stay on the island. Everyone we encountered was very nice and the whole island is very low key. The condo was adequately stocked and very comfortable. Thanks for letting us stay!!

Good time at this beachfront condo

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six enjoyed our stay at this condo. It was very convenient to be located right next to the pool. The condo was nicely furnished as well. One word of caution - whoever built these condos unfortunately put the AC units on the back of the building. These are noisy and prevented us from being able to hear the waves from the ocean from our condo. Still overall had a great time here!

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed this condo. It's so close to the pool and the boardwalk to the beach. The bunk room was perfect for the teens. The kitchen had enough of whatever we needed to cook. The Inn was perfect for our family gathering. We had family staying in the units in both sides of us. The kids loved "condo hopping" for dinners, movie night and playing games.
