This was our 6th year visiting Dauphin Island and our 3rd stay at Surf Club with 2 of those visits staying in Surf Club A-5. Our family is so happy to have found this gem of a condo. It has everything you need (minus food and beverage)to stay comfortable and happy for an entire week...or longer! The condo is clean and is decorated very nicely. We really liked the remodeling that was done to the condo in late 2017, to make way for a 3rd sleeping space. The teens really liked having the twin beds versus the shared air mattress that was previously provided. The condo itself, is perfectly positioned directly across the courtyard from the swimming pool; and short walk down the boardwalk to the beach. We also like the sense of safety we feel on the property with its gated, security code entrance, knowing the public beach-goers will not be coming in and out at all times. We are all looking forward to our next stay. We have most definitely found our "home away from home" at Surf Club A-5 and appreciate the condo owners for sharing their little slice of heaven with us!
We had 4 adults, 2 teens and 1 toddler. I was afraid the condo wouldn’t be big enough for all of us but it was a perfect fit! Took a play pen for the tot and it fit perfectly in the master bedroom with room to walk around. We had such a good time and was able to prepare and cook all meals inside or on the grill. Neighbors are very nice as well . Not too far of a walk to the beach, the pool was too warm but that’s expected in mid summer. We all loved our stay and will definitely return. I would suggest getting the gate code to get in the parking lot if you plan on getting there after closing time as we did not.
This condo was clean and exactly as pictured. The kitchen was well-equipped and appeared to have all new appliances. The beds were very comfortable. The beach was great and only a short walk from our condo. We also enjoyed the pool. We loved Dauphin Island! Peaceful, no traffic problems, good restaurants We took the fairy a couple of times to do some shopping in Gulf Shores, visit Fort Morgan and the Pier. It was easy getting on and off the ferry and absolutely no problems. Very reasonable round-trip tickets.
It was just as described. Plenty of room for six although we didn't have six. Very clean, had everything in the kitchen including a cheese grater!
Dee, the manager was very helpful, although we really didn't need anything. The walk to the beach was shorter than Google Maps made it look. Nice surprise.
There were a lot of shells and small rocks on the beach, not so bad you couldn't walk on it or anything, and it made it easy to find shells.
Restaurants are few but the food's tasty. If you're gluten-free you may want to pack for that.
There is one small grocery/hardware store that has a pretty good selection, but the meat is all frozen and veggies are a bit limited, although they seem to restock every day. Shop before 11:30 am and it's a lot quicker checking out.
If you like to wear water socks bring them with. They run about 15 bucks on the island. Food cost is a little higher but not that bad.
There was plenty of space between set-ups at the beach. Not very crowded at all.
About the only problem we had was getting in to the unit. The office is closed on Sunday and Monday. We got there on a Sunday and we weren't told the real estate office was off property. After a few phone calls and a short drive we got the keys, but the paper-work said we were in a different unit. After closer inspection we noticed the keys had the unit number that was on our contract, and we went to that unit and got right in.
I would recommend the place, but if you're looking for a big loud party go somewhere else. It's a low-key family place, and that was just fine with us.
LOVED THE CONDO. IT WAS BEAUTIFUL, CLEAN, UPDATED.. WOULD RECOMMEND IT TO ANYONE... TOTAL RELAXATION....
We had a great time at this condo and Dauphin Island. The location was perfect. There are no balconies in these particular condos so first floor was a great option for us. Condo was clean and provided almost all our needs. It is a very short walk to the beach and the pool was clean and refreshing. We had a blast.
Very friendly and easy to work with. The unit was as described. The area is very nice, quiet and friendly. The only negative we had was that it described the pool as heated and it wasn’t. Also the condo units would be a little more appealing if some of the units had small patio’s outside their patio doors where you could sit in the evenings. Definitely will be back again
Great time very happy with the place a few upgrades needed. very clean !
We loved this place! Very spacious and clean. The beach was steps away and we had a great covered porch to store beach toys and chairs. I loved the outdoor shower near our condo so we could be sure and get the sand off of us. Beautiful white sandy beaches. Will be back!!!!!
