About Donna Brown

Husband and wife bought this condo new in October, 2012. We live in Mobile and always wanted a place at the beach where we could spend some time relaxing and enjoying our family. This was the perfect location because it is only a 45 minute drive from Mobile and we like the laid back atmosphere of Dauphin Island. We plan to rent to travelers who share our enjoyment for clean and comfortable lodging and beautiful surroundings. We want our visitors to relax and enjoy themselves and hopefully like it so much they'll want to return year after year.

Donna Brown purchased this condo in 2012

Why Donna Brown chose Dauphin Island

Holiday Isle is not just a condominium complex, it is a resort. The property is extremely well maintained by the staff, the common areas are always clean and well-kept. The covered parking garage is very nice, and the gate to the garage is coded for guests and owners only.

What makes this condo unique

We love the view from our 5th floor condo, and the spaciousness of the rooms and the balcony. We can sit on the balcony and enjoy the sunrise in the morning and the sunsets in the evening. We also like the view from the 2nd bedroom, where you can see the Dauphin Island bridge and watch small planes coming into the airport, which is only a few blocks from the condo. We also like the fact that the front desk to the property is staffed during business hours, 7 days a week and there is a security guard on duty at nights on the weekends.

Worth Every Penny! Clean, comfortable, gorgeous view, and wonderful amenities

  • 5 of 5
The reservation process was very easy with a simple email to the owners. I started out with lots of questions and each time the response was quick and helpful. The instructions for getting in the condo seemed simple enough, but the lock box, if you've never had experience with this particular type, can be tricky. We had no idea where the number pad was. Don't attempt to get into it, retrieve the key, and piece it all back together with one hand. Once we entered the condo we felt like we were on vacation. It was more than we could imagine. The pictures do not do this place justice. The kitchen is well stocked with almost everything. It helps to look around in different drawers, cabinets, and even in the drawer under the stove. We loved the coffee pot, just place a cup underneath and push in to fill up. Also, no need for bottled water; the refrigerator has filtered water. Loved that! We also had the convenience of the trash chute being right outside the unit. The 2nd bedroom was well appointed and comfortable. It was a plus to have a door to the bathroom from the second bedroom. There is enough seating for 6 at the dining room table plus 2 stools at the counter. That came in handy for when we made dinner for our son and his 2 buddies that were camping out at Fort Gaines. As for the bed in the master, if you're not used to a foam mattress it may be a little strange. The first night I had a problem because I was sleeping in a strange place. I opted to grab one of the many extra blankets/throws in the condo and snuggle up outside on the lounger. It was a great place to sleep. The master bath is huge. It doesn't seem like it is in the photos, but it has lots of room and extras like hair dryers. We had fun looking through the telescope and watching a wedding take place on the beach and watching fishermen in boats. In the living room there are movies and games for evening time when a person may not be down at the beach or the pool. We expected the patio to be rather small and were pleasantly surprised to find that it was quite the opposite. It was a great place to have breakfast in the morning and lunch in the afternoon. So many things are provided that were helpful: paper towels, toilet paper, hand soap, dish soap, laundry detergent, and more that I'm sure I've forgotten. Overall we absolutely loved this place and plan to stay in this same unit. The condo is clean, comfortable, has gorgeous views, and wonderful amenities in the complex. It's worth every penny!

Lovely Condo

  • 5 of 5
Communication was good before we got there. Condo was immaculately clean, with everything one needed to enjoy the stay. Kitchen had everything to use to prepare meals. Even had coffee for the coffee maker. Views were really good of the beach, with comfy furniture on the balcony.

Lovely vacation

  • 5 of 5
We made our first visit to Dauphin Island for our local schools' Spring Break. It was a lovely, peaceful and highly family-friendly location. The weather was fine - plenty warm enough for a few days on the beach.

The condo was absolutely delightful. It is very well-appointed and beautifully kept. It looks straight over a great stretch of beach and there are a couple of eateries right over the road. We hope to visit again in years to come!

Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay at Dauphin Island. We felt at home from the minute we walked through the door. The owner has great decor taste, the beds are so comfy, and it had everything we needed for our stay. We loved having our coffee on the balcony every morning, and also enjoyed several naps there as well. There isn't a negative thing to be said about this condo, or the owners. They are fabulous to work with, and were very helpful when it came to recommendations of things to do, see, and places to eat (Rainbow Pizza was great!) Wish we could have stayed longer, but we will definitely be back!

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your trip to Dauphin Island. We love that our balcony stays shaded in the summer so we can still enjoy the beach scenes even in the heat of the day.

Holiday Isle on Dauphin Island

  • 5 of 5
It was a wonderful stay on Dauphin Island. The condo was A++ including the décor and the practical items needed. The balcony is huge and the view is fabulous. We saw at least 15-20 dolphins as we walked along the beach one evening. Highly recommend this unit!

A wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5
We go to the coast almost yearly, but this was our first time to stay on Dauphin Island. This is a very quaint place that is laid back and not commercialized like other places. A great place for our family.

The condo is really nice and has great views and access to the beach. The facility has a lot to offer and we would definitely consider returning.

The owners did a great job of answering our questions, and helping provide suggestions for a better vacation. She was very nice and pleasant to work with.

A neat place and community.

Dauphin Island
Car: recommended

Come to Dauphin Island and experience nature at its finest and a charming, historical town that is both peaceful and relaxing. Off the beaten path, Dauphin Island is a short drive from Mobile, a ferry ride from Gulf Shores, and a world away from crowded beaches, long restaurant waits, and heavy traffic. During your visit, you might consider a day trip to nearby Bellingrath Gardens or visit Mobile’s Gulf Coast Exploreum and IMAX Theatre, USS Alabama, and historic Oakleigh Garden District. Perhaps you might like to day trip to the Mississippi coast casinos to catch a show or just see the sights. We also recommend visiting nearby Malbis and Fairhope for some great shopping and antiquing. There are so many things to do within driving distance from Dauphin Island, even the most energetic visitors will have a hard time seeing it all!

Dauphin Island is one of the top birding spots in the Southeast. An incredible 347 species have been reported on the island. Spring migration is the first landfall for many Neotropical birds who make the 600-mile flight across the Gulf of Mexico from the Yucatan Peninsula. Under adverse weather conditions, large flocks of exhausted birds of many species may seek shelter on the Island in a truly spectacular 'fall-out'.

Fall migration, which begins as early as July, can also be a very rewarding time on the Island for birders. During this time, shore birds begin to gather on the Island to store up energy for their long, Neotropical flight. The Island is also ideal for birding in winter, even in the absence of the fall migrants. Many permanent species reside on the Island , and a variety of waterfowl, seabirds, and shore birds fly in during the winter season.

The entire Island is a Bird Sanctuary in which rewarding observations can be made in any of its public areas including parks, beaches, dunes, wetlands and quiet streets. The Alabama Ornithological Society meets yearly on Dauphin Island in both April and October to enjoy the birding, fine fellowship, and great seafood. Visitors are always welcome to participate in field trips and other such activities. Anytime is good birding time on Dauphin Island.

The Dauphin Island Sea Lab and Estuarium is an exciting educational facility highlighting the four key habitats of coastal Alabama: the Mobile Tensaw River Delta, Mobile Bay, the Barrier Islands and the Northern Gulf of Mexico. It includes the 10,000 square foot Exhibit Hall and Living Marsh Boardwalk. This facility is a showcase of the plants, animals, and other natural resources found in the Estuary and its surrounding marine habitats.

Take advantage of your choice of fishing guides and charter boats located right on the Island. The fishing is great!

Visit beautiful Bellingrath Gardens. Mr. Bellingrath once said “The Gardens are like a beautiful woman with a different gown for each week of the year.” With the camellia blooms in winter, the azaleas in spring, roses in the summer, chrysanthemums in autumn and our famed Magic Christmas in Lights during the holiday season, Bellingrath Gardens and Home is a 65 acre estate of year-round beauty.

In addition to touring the Gardens, the Bellingrath Museum Home and the Fowl River aboard the Southern Belle River Cruise, come experience the Bayou Boardwalk, Mirror Lake, the Great Lawn, Asian-American Gardens, the 2004 Top Public Rose Garden in the United States, Butterfly Garden, Formal Garden Terraces, and more!
