About the Property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bath Beachfront Condo

Dauphin Island has one main road, miles of untouched beaches, and not a high-rise in sight. You can ride your bike 14 miles on a path from one end of the island to another, underneath Spanish moss and past sea oats. Steeped in history, it's a place where nightlife consists of boiled peanuts and Bushwackers and where fish caught in the morning is served at lunch and dinner. No chain restaurants or high-rise hotels here.

Go for unplugging, landing your big catch, and visiting one of the best bird-watching spots in the South.

This spacious 2 bedroom 2 bath condo is available and ready to give you all the comforts of home. For couples and families who love to relax and spend quality time together, this beautiful condo is just the ticket. The thing is, you might not want to leave the resort once you’ve arrived, so you will be delighted with the amenities this beautiful condo offers:

5th floor unit with breathtaking views of the Gulf of Mexico, where you can relax on the balcony and enjoy both the sunrise and the sunset. From the second bedroom, you can enjoy a fantastic view of the Mississippi sound, Dauphin Island bridge, and Dauphin Island Airport.

This condo has plenty of seating on the spacious balcony, including a dining table for enjoying meals and plenty of comfortable seating for relaxing with a book. During the summer months the balcony stays shaded, making it easy to enjoy being outdoors even during the warmest days.

Gorgeous kitchen with granite countertops, stainless steel full-size appliances, fully stocked with dinnerware, cookware, coffeemaker, blender, toaster, mixer.

Enjoy the beautiful dining area which seats six around the table. It’s the perfect place for meals or playing a game of cards or dominoes.

The living area is super comfy and there is a nice 39” flat screen TV in the entertainment center, as well as a Blu-Ray DVD player. There are games and DVD’s provided for your enjoyment.

The master suite is pure relaxation. The king-size bed will give you sweet dreams on the high quality foam mattress. If you’ve slept on one before, you know what a good night’s sleep is. The bed linens are crisp and clean, beautiful high thread count sheets and duvet cover. There is also a 39” flat screen TV in the master suite. The master bath has a large granite vanity with double sinks, a jacuzzi-style bathtub and separate full sized shower.

The second bedroom has a queen-size bed with the same high quality foam mattress and wonderful high thread count sheets. There is a small TV/DVD combo in the second bedroom.

The laundry room is equipped with a full-sized washer and dryer and has an iron and ironing board. We have some housekeeping supplies available should you need them during your stay.

For your convenience, each rental comes with a supply of laundry detergent, dish washing liquid, dishwasher powder, trash bags, coffee filters, paper towels and extra toilet tissue. We offer this bonus to our guests to help make your stay as hassle-free as possible.

Cable TV, free WIFI and local calls are included. We have three cruiser-style adult bicycles and helmets available at no additional charge, we just ask that you keep them locked when not in use (locks provided). We also provide beach towels for use at the beach and pool.

Holiday Isle Resort is located ON THE BEACH. The resort offers both indoor and outdoor saltwater swimming pools, hot tub, sauna, steam room, tennis courts, BBQ grills, state-of-the-art exercise room and much, much more.

Car: Recommended

Come to Dauphin Island and experience nature at its finest and a charming, historical town that is both peaceful and relaxing. Off the beaten path, Dauphin Island is a short drive from Mobile, a ferry ride from Gulf Shores, and a world away from crowded beaches, long restaurant waits, and heavy traffic. During your visit, you might consider a day trip to nearby Bellingrath Gardens or visit Mobile’s Gulf Coast Exploreum and IMAX Theatre, USS Alabama, and historic Oakleigh Garden District. Perhaps you might like to day trip to the Mississippi coast casinos to catch a show or just see the sights. We also recommend visiting nearby Malbis and Fairhope for some great shopping and antiquing. There are so many things to do within driving distance from Dauphin Island, even the most energetic visitors will have a hard time seeing it all!

Dauphin Island is one of the top birding spots in the Southeast. An incredible 347 species have been reported on the island. Spring migration is the first landfall for many Neotropical birds who make the 600-mile flight across the Gulf of Mexico from the Yucatan Peninsula. Under adverse weather conditions, large flocks of exhausted birds of many species may seek shelter on the Island in a truly spectacular 'fall-out'.

Fall migration, which begins as early as July, can also be a very rewarding time on the Island for birders. During this time, shore birds begin to gather on the Island to store up energy for their long, Neotropical flight. The Island is also ideal for birding in winter, even in the absence of the fall migrants. Many permanent species reside on the Island , and a variety of waterfowl, seabirds, and shore birds fly in during the winter season.

The entire Island is a Bird Sanctuary in which rewarding observations can be made in any of its public areas including parks, beaches, dunes, wetlands and quiet streets. The Alabama Ornithological Society meets yearly on Dauphin Island in both April and October to enjoy the birding, fine fellowship, and great seafood. Visitors are always welcome to participate in field trips and other such activities. Anytime is good birding time on Dauphin Island.

The Dauphin Island Sea Lab and Estuarium is an exciting educational facility highlighting the four key habitats of coastal Alabama: the Mobile Tensaw River Delta, Mobile Bay, the Barrier Islands and the Northern Gulf of Mexico. It includes the 10,000 square foot Exhibit Hall and Living Marsh Boardwalk. This facility is a showcase of the plants, animals, and other natural resources found in the Estuary and its surrounding marine habitats.

Take advantage of your choice of fishing guides and charter boats located right on the Island. The fishing is great!

Visit beautiful Bellingrath Gardens. Mr. Bellingrath once said “The Gardens are like a beautiful woman with a different gown for each week of the year.” With the camellia blooms in winter, the azaleas in spring, roses in the summer, chrysanthemums in autumn and our famed Magic Christmas in Lights during the holiday season, Bellingrath Gardens and Home is a 65 acre estate of year-round beauty.

In addition to touring the Gardens, the Bellingrath Museum Home and the Fowl River aboard the Southern Belle River Cruise, come experience the Bayou Boardwalk, Mirror Lake, the Great Lawn, Asian-American Gardens, the 2004 Top Public Rose Garden in the United States, Butterfly Garden, Formal Garden Terraces, and more!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Husband and wife bought this condo new in October, 2012. We live in Mobile and always wanted a place at the beach where we could spend some time relaxing and enjoying our family. This was the perfect location because it is only a 45 minute drive from Mobile and we like the laid back atmosphere of Dauphin Island. We plan to rent to travelers who share our enjoyment for clean and comfortable lodging and beautiful surroundings. We want our visitors to relax and enjoy themselves and hopefully like it so much they'll want to return year after year.

Why the Owner Chose Dauphin Island, AL, USA:
Holiday Isle is not just a condominium complex, it is a resort. The property is extremely well maintained by the staff, the common areas are always clean and well-kept. The covered parking garage is very nice, and the gate to the garage is coded for guests and owners only.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We love the view from our 5th floor condo, and the spaciousness of the rooms and the balcony. We can sit on the balcony and enjoy the sunrise in the morning and the sunsets in the evening. We also like the view from the 2nd bedroom, where you can see the Dauphin Island bridge and watch small planes coming into the airport, which is only a few blocks from the condo. We also like the fact that the front desk to the property is staffed during business hours, 7 days a week and there is a security guard on duty at nights on the weekends.
