Hal and Kimberly Vaughan both born and raised right here on the Gulf Coast in South Mississippi. We have 4 children, Trinity, Michelle, Little Hal, and Pierce, ages 39 - 21. We are a retired business owner and housewife with an empty nest and extra home.
Kimberly or Hal Vaughan purchased this house in 2008
We have owned a summer home on Belle Fontaine Beach since 1961 and lived here permanently since 1980. We have two homes side by side and after our youngest daughter left for Ole Miss we decided to live in the smaller home. We live next door to rental in the small Pink House and renting our Big Green Mini Mansion. We are available for any questions or problems and happy to help with needs such as activities, directions, restaurants etc.
Otherwise we RESPECT YOUR TOTAL PRIVACY!
If you have children, just let us know and we'll make sure our crab traps are baited and hopefully full of crabs! Interested in crabbing or fishing from our pier? Let us know and we'll do our best to show you how to catch crabs, speck, flounder and red fish! Night time is the best time to fish. Crabbing during the day.
Our View is Fabulous! Either Sunrise or Sunset, both are outstanding! Our home has 12' ceilings and all rooms are large and open, with many windows giving you the look, the feel and the smell of the Mississippi Gulf Coast something we have loved our entire life. While sitting on our porch you can see Horn Island, Round Island, Dolphins/Porpoises almost every day, what a sight! Shrimp Boats, Pelicans, Eagles, Egrets, Sandhill Cranes, Mullet Jumping and now and then we have a deer or a fox on the beach, you never know!
This summer my family and i stayed here for the second year in a row. The owners are very personable and generous with their time in answering questions and helping find things. The house was prefect for us. We were traveling with a 8 month old and a 4 year old. We didn't have any trouble with the kiddos settling in and feeling safe. The pool was lovely and being a bit out of town was nice and quiet. There was an osprey nest at the end of the street! A high light for my animal loving boy.
WOW! Simply the best, more than we ever expected in every way! My well travelled children (16 & 12) are both eager to return. The owners were more than hospitable! Did anyone ever really stay here before we did? Could we have possibly have enjoyed it more? ONLY if it were longer!! Thank you Hal and Kim for sharing "THE best kept secret in South Mississippi" with us, we will be back ... more crabbing, more relaxing ~ it was a home away from home! P.S. ~ Shhhh we hesitated to write a review so we'd not have to share the secret!
This was our family’s second trip to Dolphindale and we will continue to be visitors 2-3 times a year at least. The property is fantastic. Being right on the water with 300+ foot pier is such a huge amenity. Between fishing and crabbing you could spend all day on the pier. Should you want to do something else, the spa and pool are a great way to spend your day. The property is huge and there is a beach just a few yards down the road.
True to its name, there were plenty of dolphins swimming around while we were there.
I cannot say enough about the inside of the house. The owners thought of everything. Great bedrooms and bathrooms. The kitchen and den open up to one another, as well as to the game room which has a ping pong table and pool table.
Kim and Hal are great owners and are there to assist you in anyway possible. They give you the feeling that you have known them for years. It seems like there only goal is to make your stay better and more memorable.
We will be back soon for our third stay soon.
My wife and I took our son, daughter-in-law and three grandkids to Dolphindale for 4 days. We were very impressed with the accommodations, the pool, the location...quite frankly, everything. Hal and Kimberly took care of everything to make sure we were happy, and we were. We ate most of our meals at the house (great kitchen) including pounds and pounds of shrimp we purchased from a local fisherman that set up each day on the main highway through town (look for signs.) We even bought a cooler so we could take some home. The house is magnificent...I highly recommend this place! I would not hesitate to stay here again in the future.
We enjoyed ourselves immensely! Beautiful home and stocked with everything you would need. We cannot wait to come back again.
Where do I start? We have rented from various locations and this home by far is the best home I have ever rented. The description and pictures do it no justice! The home is absolutely immaculate. Everything you need from large laundry room, extra fridge, huge kitchen, pool table, games. The pool is wonderful if you want to cool off and just relax. Hal is good to warm the jacuzzi so ready for use after your long day. They have thought of everything to make you very comfortable during your stay. Fishing and crabbing off the pier was fun, the neighbor Joe was wonderful too. Hal and Joe are nice to help teach you about the fishing/crabbing. Kim and Hal are the best host/hostess one could ask for. If you have any questions, they are just a text away. Enjoyed visiting with them, wish we had more time to do more of that! (NEXT TIME KIM AND HAL!!) Kim and Hal are like those that you feel you have known for a long time. They are the nicest people you will meet, so accomodating. Downtown Ocean Springs was a short drive away and has the best food and entertainment in our opinion! It was fun walking through Downtown and visiting the various shops, etc. Dauphin Island was a short drive and the beaches were just beautiful. Had a great time in Biloxi at the casino's one night and also was a short drive. And our furbaby was also very comfortable. She enjoyed the home as well, especially any attention she received from Kim and Hal! We truly feel we made new friends and hope to see them again soon! If you are looking to rent in the area, look no further, this by far is the best home you will ever rent! It was hard leaving, but we will be returning! Thank you Kim and Hal for an absolutely lovely vacation, we can't wait until next time!
