About Sandy Walker

As we were growing up, our parents worked very hard, and could often be heard saying, 'I'll be fine if I can just sit for a minute and catch my second wind!' So the name of our home on Dauphin Island is called 'Second Wind', where we look forward to spending time with our children & grandchildren and those we love, just relaxing, laughing, enjoying the island, the beauty of the gulf, making memories as we catch our 'Second Wind'!

Sandy Walker purchased this condo in 2014

Why Sandy Walker chose Alabama

We loved the ocean view from the large balcony, and we so enjoy the sunsets here during all seasons! The huge kitchen and spacious living areas work well for our family. And, Dauphin Island is an easy drive from our home in Mississippi, as well as very drivable for our children in Nashville & South Georgia.

What makes this condo unique

We fell in love with Dauphin Island on our first visit! The 'simple life' was just perfect for sharing time with our family! The island doesn't have a stop-light! Who wouldn't love that after a work week in Memphis! We found that it creates many opportunities to make memories together on the beach enjoying nature! We feel that vacations should be enjoyed; not one spent in a waiting line for a restaurant!

Again, the island is a unique place, and our unit at the beautiful Holiday Isle complex offers everything for your comfort: luxury accommodations at a luxury complex with truly breathtaking views of the beach and Gulf of Mexico from this beautiful 5th floor location!

Second Wind is 5 stars!

  • 5 of 5

Second Wind was all that was promised! We have stayed in several beach condos and this was one of the most comfortable, well decorated and made my family feel at home. Sandy does a wonderful personal touch and attends to each detail to ensure your rest and relaxation. We love the community, the fresh seafood and the pools were a life saver on the rain days! Best equipped kitchen ever!

The condo was very quiet, staff was very helpful and everything was kept clean and fresh! We look forward to returning soon!

Home away from home, amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Sandy was super awesome to work with. She checked in with us to make sure we had everything we needed and had gotten settled. This condo is beautiful, out of a magazine. We brought our 3 children and everyone was so comfortable. The view from the balcony is a dream and I'll never forget the quiet mornings with coffee :) We'll be back!

This was our first trip to the beach with our children and was so relaxing. Dauphin Island is a wonderful vacation spot for families!

Fantastic Home!! 🌞

  • 5 of 5

Sometimes when you see a property on the Internet, the picture is usually a outdated photo when the property was at it's best. Then when you arrive, you're unsure if it's even the same place? This is definitely not the case with property. The photos don't do it justice. Very well decorated, quality and comfortable bedding and a kitchen stocked with everything you can think of. Actually, the entire home was stocked with every amenity imaginable. Even shampoo and body wash. Our family throughly enjoyed our stay and loved Dauphin Island and it's laid back way of life. Sandy was great to work with. She answered every question and was so hospitable. She made our experience even better. It was wonderful!

Owner's Response: Tennille, It was my pleasure to share our home with your family - and glad that you noticed that we had stocked everything you need - so hopefully, it makes your vacation easy and relaxing! And having the kitchen stock with good equipment and some of the basics makes it easy to enjoy a meal "at home" after a busy day on the beach. And, it is our intent & goal to keep our home "looking like new"! We take extra care with housekeeping, and maintenance to keep it as a "5 star accommodation" on a beautiful beach! So glad you enjoyed the comfy beds! Looking forward to having your family back next year! Sandy
