Dauphin Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 2 1/2 Baths with an outside shower, (Sleeps 16)

We are glad you found our vacation home. For us, it has been our home for the past two and a half years. We are excited about others finding out what we know. We are now making our house available to rent and now everyone can find out how Dauphin Island is one of the Gulf Coast’s best kept secrets. We feel like we have the best of both worlds here. We have one of the most spectacular views from our back deck looking out over one of Dauphin Island’s inlets, with a long view toward Mobile Bay and the entry to the Gulf of Mexico. Our front porch offers another amazing water view with a stunning sunrise. We are just a couple of minutes from the beach so we have you covered whichever you prefer during your stay. You could hang out by the pool or take that short journey to the snow white sands of the island. There is a boat lift available for the avid fishermen and pleasure seekers. No worries about the hassle of launching your boat each morning!

Our house has a great layout inside. You could come with just your family or use it for a multi-family gathering place. We have two bedrooms on each side of a large family room with jack-and-jill baths in between providing plenty of privacy for each family if you are sharing your vacation with others. The downstairs 5th bedroom room is perfect for the kids with queen bunk beds and a pull out couch but is not accessible from inside the house. There is also a half bath that is easily accessible from the pool deck. The kitchen is open toward the family room giving it that warm, open feeling. It is fabulous for the cooler seasons as well because you can open the doors and feel the breeze through the screen doors.

Our back deck is a winning part of this story. You will not want to come back inside once you have relaxed on the deck and simply gotten lost in the view. There is always a beautiful sunset. You will see boats passing by and the peacefulness of the water on a calm or breezy day. While you relax on the back deck, you can keep an eye on the children swimming below in the pool while soaking in the hot tub. I told you that you won’t want to go back in.

No matter how long your stay is, you will not lack for things to do. Right from our home you will be able to swim, fish, kayak and go boating. Dauphin Island is a great place to go for long walks, bike rides, bird watching, or just laying out on the beach or by the pool. You can even catch a ferry that runs between Dauphin Island and Gulf Shores for extra shopping and entertainment.

Dauphin Island will give you what most people want from a vacation. A chance to escape the busy and noisy life. When you go home, you will know that you have been rested and recharged. We hope you will love our home as much as we do. Thank you, Steve & Cathy Vickers

About Steve Vickers

We have lived in the Theodore, AL area all of our lives. Our children were born here and now have families of their own. We have been very blessed to be able to purchase this home and would love to share it with your family.

Steve Vickers purchased this house in 2010

Why Steve Vickers chose Dauphin Island

Dauphin Island has always been a special place to us. It is close enough to home that we can jump in the car and come down any time we feel like it. This is where we brought our children when they were young and could not imagine wanting to go anywhere else.

What makes this house unique

Our favorite times at Dauphin Island are when the whole family is here. We hang out and visit on the porches and the kids love the pool. We have a pontoon boat and we frequently take it out to sand bars and for sunset cruises. There are many dolphins around our area and they are lots of fun to watch as they are playing in the water. The kayaks also keep everyone entertained. We have three kayaks on the property and we will be glad to let you use them instead of renting. Our home is on an inlet with a no wake zone, which makes it very safe even for the little ones to kayak. We also fish right from our dock when we don't feel like taking the boat. Ft. Gaines and the Dauphin Island Sea Lab and Estuarium are just a bike ride away. We have several bikes available, if needed, of various sizes so you won't have to rent them or bring them with you. The ferry can be taken to Ft. Morgan for easy access to Gulf Shores. You have to try out The Bakery for breakfast and The Common Loon for lunch or dinner while you're here, too! The public beach is a couple of minutes away or you could go to the West End beach (about a five minute drive), which has many amenities, like water slides, music, parasailing, rentals, and a concession stand. There is a small fee for parking, but it is well worth not having to walk a long way to the beach.

Excellent House Excellent Location

  • 5 of 5
Our famiy vacation included ages 20 to 84, everyone had a fantastic time with beautiful views from the multiple balconies and charming & comfortable furnishings in the house.
You will sleep like a baby on this vacation.
Fishing off the pier and swiming in the pool were daily activities, with biking, kayaking and golf cart rides when the fish weren't biting.
This is a great house for a family vacation and an excellent location on the island. You will be happy you came and enjoyed Island Pleasure.
I can't thank the Vickers enough for sharing their beautiful home with us.. I wouldn't stay anywhere else on Dauphin Island. Thanks

Couldn't stay off the porch...

Couldn't stay off the porch...

This is the perfect example of when you DON'T want to give a great review because you don't want other people to find your PERFECT vacation get away!! From the initial email contact, to our arrival, to contacting the owners for a question during our stay, to our departure, this was the best and most relaxing vacation I've ever had! Thank you, to the Vickers for sharing their beautiful home with us! If I made a list of everything great about renting this home, the review would be too long, but the tops on the list are...1. the back porch, 2. peaceful/sunsets, 3. kayaks/bikes, 4. the dock, 5. perfect bedroom/layout. And the list could go on.

Owner's Response: Thank you Maurica and family, you guys are the kind of folks that make us glad we decided to make our house available. We appreciate the care and the comments that help us make changes for our future guest. The porch is our favorite gathering place as well. There are so many different areas to relax from the swing, the hammock, to the pool or hanging out by the grill with the smell of dinner it's difficult to pick the best area. Hope you have a chance to visit us again!
