Kick Back in Your Private Dauphin Island Beach House

Dauphin Island is a small barrier island located in the Gulf of Mexico just off of the mainland of Alabama, and it provides you with a superior location for a relaxing getaway. While the area has fewer than 1,300 residents to give it a quiet ambiance, it has numerous gorgeous beach vacation homes that have spacious accommodations, a full kitchen, large decks and great beach views or beach access. Altogether, your vacation house on Dauphin Island is the perfect place for you to relax on your getaway.

Beaches

Visiting the beaches is among the most popular activity to enjoy while visiting Dauphin Island during the summer months as well as on warmer days during the spring and fall. From the comfort of your Alabama beach house, you may be able to enjoy beach access just a few steps away. There is also a Dauphin Island Public Beach with a long wooden walkway and various amenities for you to enjoy. Off the beach, there are deep sea fishing excursions and other types of water-based excursions that add to your fun.

Dining

You may want to cook out on the grill on the patio of your vacation home from time to time, but you also may want to sample some of the local fare at top notch restaurants. Popular restaurants that are known for quality food and drinks on the island include Pirate's Pleasure, Skinners Restaurant, JT's Sunset Grill, Islanders Restaurant and Barnacle Bill's Marina Grill, to name a few. Be sure to sample at least a few of the local restaurants while you are visiting Dauphin Island to enjoy the relaxing experience of having someone else cook for you while you are vacationing.

Attractions

There is much to see and do while visiting Dauphin Island in addition to spending time at the beach. The Dauphin Island See Lab Estuarium and the Audubon Bird Sanctuary are both wonderful places to relax with nature and to learn more about wildlife in the area. You can learn more about the history of the area with a tour of Fort Gaines or with a visit to Indian Shell Mound Park. Check the hours of operation and schedule for these venues before you arrive so that you can plan out your trip.

Weather

Like much of the rest of the Gulf Coast region of the United States, Dauphin Island has a humid subtropical climate with warm temperatures throughout most of the year. The area is known for having humid, hot summers with average highs between May and September ranging from the lower to upper 80s. However, record highs reach the 100s during these months. During the winter season, the average high is in the high 50s and low to mid 60s, giving you a mild winter season to enjoy. Snowfall is very rare for Dauphin Island, but the area receives more than 61 inches of rainfall each year. Both the peak of winter as well as the peak of summer seasons have significant rainfall.

How to Get There

Dauphin Island is a very small community, and it does not have a local airport into which travelers can fly. However, both Mobile and Pensacola are a short drive away and have international airports that you can travel into if you are arriving by air. If you are traveling by car, take Interstate 10 into Alabama. Then, take the small county road 193 south from the Interstate to the island. Keep in mind that this road is the only road that crosses the bay for access to the island.

I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: This was our family's first stay in a condo. Overall we were very happy with the experience. This unit did have an issue with the bedrooms not getting cool enough with the air but not bad enough that we wouldn't stay again. We were on the third floor and able to park right next to our room which was convenient. The pool area and access to the beach was very easy. During our stay in April there were very few people on the beach so it made for a relaxing trip. I was disappointed with the late checkin process. No one is there after 12 on Saturdays. When we booked the condo we were told there was a parking lot for our boat. We later discovered after much confusion that the "parking" lot was a grassy section on the side of the road. My husband was very disappointed and did not appreciate having to leave a very nice boat on the side of the road. On Tuesday we did have a manager offer to pay for boat storage at another place but by that point we only had one night left. This is definitely something that needs working on. The number to call if you have an issue after hours does not connect you with someone local so that was frustrating as well. These little issues will not prevent us from coming back but does help us know what to clarify for our next trip.

Reviewer Comments: This is the 14th or 15th year we have stayed at the Inn or the pink confos-so clearly we love this place. I love walking right out the door and onto the beach. Having the pools is a plus. My blood pressure drops about 10-20 points as soon as we drive over the bridge to the island. The staff are as friendly, patient and kind as can be. I know I'll be back!

                                                              We have been staying in vrbo's for years and I have to say this property was my favorite. This is a chefs paradise / the kitchen was filled with everything you need . I'm very fussy about decor (I'm a designer) this home was done with class. Every room was beautiful and furniture was clean ( they have white couches). You are only steps away from the white sandy beach . We were there over spring break and we felt like we owned the beach. The weather was a little rainy so we ventured out to many places. New Orleans, Biloxi, mobile and had great adventures. We had two 17 year old and two 20 year old kids with us and they all had a great time . We will definitely be back !!
