About Kimberly or Hal Vaughan
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
Why Kimberly or Hal Vaughan chose Jackson County
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! Remember to add chicken to your grocery list to keep traps baited and crabs fed. 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.
What makes this House unique
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!

Perfect vacation getaway!
We had an excellent time renting from Hal and Kimberly, we could not of asked for better homeowners. The house was perfect, the view was amazing, would definitely come back here. The grandchildren loved the pool and crabbing, and we liked having the house on a dead end road, so didn't have to worry about traffic. The best night was when Hal cooked up the crab and they came over and had supper with us, they are both so fun to talk with, it was the best night of the week. They had everything you could think of needing in the house, and answered any questions that we had. They probably got sick of us! And their little dog liked to keep us company, which was awesome!
The Most Amazing Vacation Ever
Honestly, I don't know where to begin!!! From the minute we arrived at Dolphindale it was perfect; Hal (the owner along with his wife, Kimberly) was there to greet us and show us around the property, answer any questions we had regarding stores/restaurants, he was very helpful and made sure all our questions were answered.
The house was BEYOND clean!!! My gosh it was spotless and had everything (and then some) to make us feel at home; after we got back from the store picking up food/drinks, Hal already had a cooler filled with ice sitting on the porch waiting for us! And from then on, if we ever needed ANYTHING, all we had to do was contact Hal and he was always so pleasant helping us.
One day Hal emptied the crab baskets while my family watched and he took the time to educate us about crab catching, then Hal cleaned the crab, cooked them and after they were done cooking he gave us all a big smile and said "Enjoy! And if you need anything just let me know". And boy did we ENJOY, it was the best crab any of us had ever had...thanks to Hal!!
Honestly, there is so much more that literally made our vacation so enjoyable that I could go on and on!!!!!
So, let's just say.....It was the best vacation ever and we are already planning on going back next year!!! And even our two teenage children said, "I would much rather be here than at the beach in a condo, can we please come back here next year for vacation".
Beautiful and peaceful
Fifth year we have stayed at Dolphindale and have never been disappointed. Kim and Hal are now like family. Beautiful property with fantastic view of the sunrise and sunset on the water.
Best beach house in Ocean Springs!
We've stayed here several times and the house is always immaculate and inviting. I honestly don't know how they keep it so clean. It never seems to be aging. It feels like we are coming home each time we go. Kim and Hal and their friendly neighbors and pets feel like family at this point. All the amenities like the pier, pool and hot tub are awesome and make our vacations complete. I recommend highly!
Wow! What a fantastic family escape!!!
From the moment we pulled up to the beautiful and fresh teal colored home to the moment we left past the dolphin mailbox we had the most amazing time. Kimberly and Hal were kind and gracious hosts, so hospitable and fun to talk to. We loved soaking in the sun on the pool deck and spending our evenings in the hot tub. The kids LOVED swimming in the pool with the fountain but their favorite part was crabbing right off the dock! We enjoyed nearby Ocean Springs as well as a quick trip to the beaches and casinos of Biloxi. The views from inside and outside were amazing plus the amenities are top notch.
We truly enjoyed our stay at the Dolphindale and the Ocean Springs area. Highly recommended!!!
