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 Dauphin Island
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!

ANOTHER WONDERFUL HOLIDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THIS WAS OUR SECOND TIME STAYING AT DAUPHIN ISLAND AND WAS JUST AS WONDERFUL AS THE FIRST. THANK YOU AGAIN SANDY FOR YOUR THOUGHTFULNESS AND SHARING YOUR HOME WITH US. BEAUTIFUL MEMORIES!!!
It was my pleasure to have you back to our home on Dauphin Island and we are so glad you had time to relax and make new memories!
Do come again!
Relaxation at its finest
Thank you for sharing your beautiful home on Dauphin Island with us! We have stayed in many condos in various places around the country and your home tops my list! The layout is fantastic and your finishes and hospitality are absolutely beautiful. The balcony is very spacious with comfortable furniture and the sights and sounds are mesmerizing... you have no choice but to relax.
We visited Fort Gaines, Audubon bird sanctuary, Bellingrath gardens (just beautiful!), and the fantastic sugar sand BEACH morning, noon, and night :) My kids loved every minute of our stay as much as my husband and I. We enjoyed the indoor and outdoor pools, fenced in tennis court on the third floor, and ping pong on the second floor.
Sandy, you were an absolute pleasure to talk to and work with, pure epitome of southern hospitality! We would absolutely recommend this beautiful condo to anyone visiting Dauphin Island.
Thank you so very much for the sweet note!
We are so pleased that your family was comfortable and enjoyed your stay at our Second Wind.
And, having the indoor pool, tennis & ping pong is great treat for the all guests during your vacation stay.
We enjoyed having you and we look forward to having you back very soon!
Great place and great people
Thank you so much, and it was our pleasure to have your family back again for your spring break! Looking forward to seeing you in 2019!
Another wonderful stay in this gorgeous property.
This our second year in the condo, and our ninth year on Dauphin island. This home is beautifully and comfortably furnished, with a well stocked kitchen, and amazing balcony furniture. We spend at least several hours every day on the balcony reading and watching the sunsets over the ocean. The Walkers are the nicest people you could hope to meet and are very attentive to anything you may want or need to enhance your stay here. We are already looking forward to next years stay.
2nd, 3rd, 4th Wind, it's all good!
I think this is the fourth time I've stayed in Second Wind at Holiday Isle. And it's still as great as the first time. The owner is an absolute pleasure to deal with and at this point feels more like a friend than anything else. Second Wind is appointed with everything you need as usual. Just bring yourself, some family or friends, and some food and you are set. I can't express enough how comfortable the balcony furniture is. I might have to apologize to the surrounding guests for the light snoring I did out there, lol. Stepping into Second Wind is like stepping into another dimension. You are immediately transported to a comfortable serene relaxing environment. We love it here and it's quickly becoming the highlight of our year. It's like a reset from all the stresses of the real world. Second Wind is such an appropriate name.
Don't forget to try Miguel's Beach and Baja while you are on the island. Delicious!
Thanks again for the wonderful time!
First time Island visit
Our first trip to Dauphin Island was an adventure. Sandy and Jerry are fantastic owners and so very helpful. We went through our first hurricane (Nate) and they offered the most updated information. The condo is much more than the pictures show - it is like home and everything we needed was there. Beautiful views of the ocean and great seating on the patio. The Walkers hospitality is like none I've had before in any vacation rental !! Certainly look forward to coming back to Second Wind😎�
We look so forward to having you and your family back to stay at our Second Wind, to enjoy the balcony for some great rest & relaxation! And, next time with no hurricane! :)
You and your family were a delight to meet, and just the kind of nice folks we love to share I home with!
Do be in touch!
Dauphin Island is a splendid place to share family time, enjoying all of nature's beauty.
