About Jimmy Paulk
Residents of Mobile (35 miles north of this property) allows us to personally oversee the property when it is not rented insuring it is kept in proper condition both in terms cleanliness (professionally performed post/pre every rental) but also completeness encompassing adequate towels in the baths, as somewhat of a cook myself adequate pots, pans, sheets, pizza bricks, measuring cups & spoons, scale and more than the 6-8 place settings of plates and flatware found in many rentals. We understand the rental of this condo is a vacation experience for most and we have attempted to provide a place that meets or exceeds guests expectations.
Jimmy Paulk purchased this Condo in 2007
Why Jimmy Paulk chose Dauphin Island
For some 50 years I have grown up in Mobile and watched the coastal areas experience significant change after the devastation caused by hurricanes; through the years Dauphin Island has kept a small town charm and lifestyle setting it apart from the much heavier populated and commercialized beach front communities of Gulf Shores Eastward into the Florida Panhandle. Missing until 2007 was a first class commercial grade residential building providing amenities consistent with a structure of this size such as indoor and outdoor pools, sauna, steam, whirlpool, gated parking garage and units with tall ceilings, granite counters, etc. It truly makes for a great getaway without having to forgo any creature comforts afforded in modern resort developments.
What makes this Condo unique
What we have done with our unit is take a solid shell and made it a home with the furnishings and decorations. Our unit features extras including hardwood floors with rugs in the main living areas, glass tile backslashes in the kitchen, accent paint in kitchen and master bath and custom lighting additions. Please take a moment to view the pictures of our furnishings as we opted for choices beyond the typical rental package assortment.

Perfect weekend getaway
This is our second time staying here, once in 2016 for an adult trip and this time as a family trip with 3 kids, and both times we had a wonderful time.
Usually we wouldn't look for a place on the bottom floor, but you are far enough away from the pool that you won't hear anything at all, even when on the balcony/porch area. There is parking right outside of the front door which makes loading and unloading a breeze since you don't have to wait for an elevator.
There are several places to grab food within walking distance, the beach is clean and quiet, the pools (both indoor and outdoor) are large, there is plenty of space in the condo to not feel crowded, plenty if cookware, plates, and even a few supplies for washing clothes and dishes. (We especially appreciated the condiment container when we realized we didn't have any when we cooked hotdogs for lunch).
We are definitely looking at the calendar to see if we can squeeze in a week trip next summer with the family to Dauphin Island, I think we are all leaving in agreement that we like it more than Gulf Shores/ Orange Beach/ Perdido/ Pensacola - just as pretty but with a quieter beach!
We loved our stay at Jimmy's Place. Easy in, easy out.
We really had a great time in Dauphin Island! Fresh fish at every meal was not hard to take. The property was great and dealing with Jimmy,the owner,couldn't have been better. Didn't want to leave!
Absolutely gorgeous accommodations!!
Everything from the gorgeous furnishings to the amazing comfortable master bed mattress you can not go wrong by picking this condominium for your next vacation. Even where the condominium is located at makes everything so much simpler when your loading and unloading from your car. Communication from the owner is also spot on!! I had a few questions when we got there and they were answered in minutes.
Our best condo ever!
We had the best relaxing vacation ever. Our condo was very comfortable, it was beautiful and was stocked with everything including salt and pepper, although we did run out of trash bags, paper towels and toilet paper, but I bought extra because of reading other reviews of guest that also ran out. It was great having a washer and dryer, we also brought our own laundry detergent and fabric softener. There were some toys in one of the closets for the kids to bring to the beach and make sand castles. There were even binoculars to look out at the ocean which we didn’t use, didn’t notice them till the last day but again we brought our own. The balcony was big and spacious, we loved sitting out there in the evenings, wish we would of bought some bug spray because we kept getting bit by something that was not visible so we kept our legs covered up. There were several places to eat at across the street, not far down the road was Skinners, one night we bought fish and grilled it and while we were there we placed an order be be picked up the next day at a certain time, they had our shrimp and crab legs cooked when we got there and we had a nice meal back at the condo. The potatoes and crab legs were good too. Although the shrimp and corn was way over cooked, if we had not picked them up at closing I would of brought them back and ask if they could cook us some fresh ones that we could peel and eat. One day we drove down to where the ferry was located and did some sight-seeing. They had bicycles and kayak’s out side under the parking deck, we never found out if we were allowed to ride or rent them. We went to the beach twice, once during the day and once during the night with our flashlights, there were a lot of small crabs. The reasons we only went twice was because it was a far walk. We swim at the pool all the other days, the pool was small and crowded. As big as the complex was you would of thought there would of been at lease two pools and over half the pool was always in the shade, that was a bummer. We did enjoy the hot tub and sauna. This was our first stay in AL and probably our last. We like the clearer water in FL better.
Great property, highly recommend
Condo was really clean and updated. Great location on the island. Great view of the beach.
