About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bathrooms Condo With Stunning Beach And Ocean Views

This is a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom beachfront condo, beautifully decorated with a full compliment of utilities.

Come and spend a relaxing few days or longer in our beautiful beach front condominium. Holiday Isle has everything you need for the perfect get away. Our condo is located on the 4th floor with easy access to elevators and stairs. These take you to the lobby, indoor and outdoor pools, steam room, sauna, communal grilling area, tennis court, fitness center and boardwalk right onto the beach. There is covered parking and the complex is gated with patrolled security.

Within our luxury condo you will find beautiful, light beachy decor, two bedrooms (1 King, 2 full beds), two bathrooms, internet access, TVs and DVDs, a well stocked kitchen with stainless steel appliances, laundry facilities, and very comfortable outdoor seating areas with fabulous views of the beach and Gulf of Mexico.

Dauphin Island is the best kept secret on the Gulf Coast. It is a natural barrier island linked to the mainland by causeway and bridge and it has a wonderful laid back atmosphere that pulls you away from everyday life. The entire island is a designated bird sanctuary and offers wildlife enthusiasts and bird watchers the opportunity to see a host of migrating birds every year (nearly 350 species of bird have been spotted on the island). There are local grocery stores, gift shops, a bakery, restaurants, and even an old fashioned arcade for youngsters to enjoy.

On the east end of the island there is historic Fort Gaines (“Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead”!), the Dauphin Island Sea Lab, the Audubon Bird Sanctuary, the Mobile Bay ferry and numerous boat launch sites. To the west there are two sandy public beaches where visitors can enjoy beach combing, picnics, bird spotting or simply relaxing in the sun and the sea. A bike trail runs the length of the island and bikes can be hired at a couple of locations. For the slightly more adventurous other activities include kayaking, fishing, kite surfing, golfing and boating. Plenty of deep sea and inshore charters are available at the marina.

Every year the island hosts a variety of events such as the Alabama Deep Sea Fishing Rodeo, the Sailboat Regatta, the Battle of Mobile Bay celebrations, the Alabama Coastal BirdFest, and also Mardi Gras parades, seafood festivals, fun runs and art and craft shows.

So, enjoy a glass of wine on the balcony watching the sun set, glimpse the dolphins jumping just off the shoreline, or have a stroll onto the beach and watch the crabs scuttling around once the sun has gone down! Dauphin Island is the ideal place to relax and recharge your batteries. Come and experience it for yourself…

About Steven Chard

We have lived in southern Alabama for 7 years and fell in love with Dauphin Island when we first moved here from the UK (yes we are British!). We have children and dogs that also love the beach and the ocean and so spend as much time as possible on the island either on the beach, in the sea or in our boat. Having a busy life in Mobile, D.I. is the perfect place to relax and un-wind.

Steven Chard purchased this condo in 2015

Why Steven Chard chose Alabama

We have been fortunate enough to travel to many parts of the world through work and vacation but there are few places that we have fallen in love with as much as Dauphin Island. The fact that it is so peaceful, stunningly beautiful in all seasons and very welcoming makes it ideal for those wanting to escape from busy lives. The beaches, ocean and wildlife are spectacular. When the opportunity came along to buy a little piece of this stunning island we jumped at it. We hope you enjoy your time here as much as we do.

What makes this condo unique

The view from the 4th floor of Holiday Isle is a little slice of perfection. The sun rises and the sunsets change throughout the year but each one is breathtaking. Many evenings are spent enjoying a glass of wine relaxing on the balcony just taking in the sights and sounds. Pelicans, herons and a host of other birds can be seen but the biggest joy is spotting dolphins just off shore.

Last minute trip

  • 5 of 5

My husband wanted to take one last beach trip and he chose Dauphin Island in stead of our normal Destin or Gulf Shores location. We searched and searched and found the perfect unit, #404 on Dauphin Island. The unit was great, the location great and we had a wonderful time. Steven was excellent to work with and would recommend this property to everyone!

This was the first time visiting this part of coastal Alabama. The condo was very clean, quiet and the balcony faced the ocean. We were a bit disappointed to see so many ocean drilling sites which you can see from the balcony but overall, we enjoyed this cozy condo.

We also enjoyed visiting during the off season and true to the advertising of the condo - wonderful sunsets!!!

Pleasant and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our recent trip to Dauphin Island. This was our first time visiting this part of Alabama. The condo was larger than most of the two bedroom ones that we have stayed in. It was also nicely decorated. I don't like the feel of sand on the floor, so the carpeted living room area was nice. The bed was a bit too firm for me, but most are. The rest of the family slept well. The beach was beautiful, just hate those pesky mosquitoes at night. Overall a great condo and vacation. Thanks!

Owner's Response: Dear Karen, We are glad you enjoyed your time at Dauphin Island. Sorry about the mosquitoes!! They really are not usually a problem at DI but all the rain over Labor Day weekend caused a breakout. The weekend you were there was particularly bad and I can say that from first hand experience!! Thankfully the town has been spraying and the situation is much improved. We do hope that you are able to make it back to DI again for a mosquito free break. Thanks again for staying at #404.

Dauphin Island is a delightful secret nestled on the Gulf of Mexico. Crossing over the DI Bridge feel the stresses and strains of life ebb away as you immediately relax into island life. Whether you come to the island to enjoy the history of Fort Gaines or Fort Morgan, the wildlife of the Audubon Bird Sanctuary, the fascination of the Estuarium or the relaxation of the beaches you will enjoy every moment here.

There are many other ways to while away your time such as fishing, bike riding, boating, kayaking, kite surfing, swimming or beach combing. The island is 14 miles long and only 1 3/4 miles wide at the widest point and so very easy to get around. There is a seasonal shuttle bus that travels the length of the island so you don’t even need to take the car out.

The entire island has been designated as a bird sanctuary and thousands of visitors come to experience the annual migrations.

Mobile is only 30 minutes away and Gulfport, Biloxi and Gulf Shores are all within easy driving distance. On the island there are several stores that sell every day groceries, a bakery, a number of restaurants and bars, a golf course, Island Heritage and Art gallery, Skinners for fresh fish and a ferry service that crosses Mobile Bay.
