We had a very relaxing stay on Daulphin Island. The condo was nicely kept. The boardwalk gave easy access to the beach. And I loved that we could park our car right on the third floor parking structure only a short distance from the condo.
The only issue we had was the one of the kitchen chairs was in need of repair. Luckily we noticed the legs being lose and did not sit on it.
My family and I spent 3 nights at holiday isle. When we arrived the condo was absolutely spotless. I was very impressed. The only problem we experienced was that some of the pots and pans were rust very badly so we had to go buy some. But I would definitely recommend this condo and we will be back.
Holiday Isle is a seasoned, but well-maintained condo facility on Dauphine Island. Rental units for Peak season were a bit less expensive than Gulf Shore proper units. Also, we shaved about an hour-and-a-half off of our driving time due to the proximity of Dauphine Island to us.
Our condo unit was spacious and wide unlike many of the shotgun models you see elsewhere along Gulf Coast. Outdoor pool was clean and kept up. Workout room and tennis courts were nice features. Three-level gated parking garage was great.
Only drawback was walk to the beachhead, which apparently is continuing to expand due to dredging of Mobile Bay (this is what a local told us). The boardwalk is one of the longest I've ever experienced to get from your condo to the beach. And then there is a pretty good walk from the end of the boardwalk itself to water. The sand was fine, the water good. I could have done without the panoramic view of the off-shore oil rigs. I realize oil is a big part of the South Alabama-Louisiana economy, but...
Dauphine Island is a quiet, quaint fishing town. You have limitations of dining options, but there are some jewels, such as the Lighthouse Bakery and Miguel's Mexican.
Grocery shopping is limited, so make sure you load up on groceries before you cross the bridge into Dauphine Island or do what we did and take the ferry across Mobile Bay into Gulf Shores and shop there.
The condo was nice, and I would consider staying again. The beach and pool were never busy or overly crowded. There are not many "tourist" attractions, which is one of the main reasons we decided to try Dauphin Island. Mini golf (the owner was incredibly sweet and offered to take our picture)and Dauphin Island Sea Lab were the most fun for my children, ages 6 and 9. Lighthouse Bakery is absolutely delicious, cinnamon rolls are to die for. Pirates Pleasure has the best dinner, everything tastes great. My only complaints would be the guestroom mattresses are little uncomfortable (we have Tempur mattresses at home, so nothing compares). There were a few very small maintenance issues with the condo, but other than that, everything was clean, comfortable, and enjoyable!
We enjoyed our stay at the condo. Owner might consider replacing patio furniture and eating utensils were sparse. Other than that we were very satisfied with the unit. Being able to access unit directly from parking was a real plus
