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 Dauphin Island
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.

A Perfect Holiday
I have stayed in Steve and Emily Chard's condo before, and I was eager to return. The balcony is very spacious - my friends were impressed with it. We ate dinner out there each evening, and the view is stunning. I spent a lot of time relaxing on the balcony.
The Condo is very well equipped with modern appliances and the kitchen is really well organized - easy to cook and easy to clean up.The decor is very nice without going overboard on the beach theme - it is a relaxing atmosphere. Unloading and loading up your car is also very easy with carts made available and no stairs to climb! I had an injured knee this trip, so I greatly appreciated the easy access.
The complex has a heated pool, a sauna, a hot tub, and an exercise room - we took advantage of all of these. The reason I picked this location to begin with is for the security the complex offers (I was travelling alone my first visit). But I chose it again because I loved the location on the beach and the condo is very spacious and well equipped.
The sunsets (and sunrises!) are beautiful on this beach - dolphins swam by almost every day and I got in some wonderful birding. The beach itself if gorgeous and the swimming is fantastic.
The owners could not be nicer. I changed my arrival date twice, and they went out their way to accommodate me. I highly recommend this unit for a few days or as long as you can stay - I sure did not want to leave!
Newly refurbished condo is lovely and comfortable
Condo has recently been redone with new floors and paint and is very nice. All the furniture is quite comfortable, too. Everything worked well and we really enjoyed our stay, even extending it an extra day.
We had a great week-after Christmas, relaxing stay at the condo. Very nicely appointed with everything we needed! Thanks!
Lovely Beach Condo
Stunning sunsets from the balcony. Clean, well equipped and on the beach!
Good Facility and Great view
We love Dauphin Island and this is our preferred property to stay when we visit. The owner was very helpful and accommodating.
Clean and quiet.
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.
