Take a break and make your way to the warm sunshine and slow lifestyle of Dauphin Island. Regardless of whether you have come to explore the local shops in town, chill on the beach with a good book, or lounge by the shared pool right below the condo, you will have plenty of ways to use each day. When you return to home base each evening, the private balcony will be just the place to kick back with a glass of wine as the sun goes down. Plus, the full kitchen can be the hub for reminiscing at the breakfast bar as the chef of the group prepares something tasty for the whole gang. When it is really time to settle in, everyone will love splitting a bag of popcorn and cozying up on the white sectional for a movie night!

What I loved was that it was quiet, but the bedding situation was disappointing. 1 pillow per person, no blanket and the fitted sheets wouldn’t stay on the mattress. I have pics of how we woke up every morning with the corners off. There were no spare sheets to try to fix the problem and none were offered when I called Vacasa about the roaches and also told them about the bedding.
The kitchen had roaches and I found them every day. I called Vacasa and they asked for a picture. I took a video, sent it to them. All I got was a text from the caretaker that she was told pest control was needed and that she would alert the HOA. We never saw anyone during our time we were there. We ate out every meal instead of cooking the food we had brought with us to keep from dealing with the roaches ourselves. I sealed everything in ziplock bags to keep from bringing anything back home.
The bathtub was also not clean. I ran a bath, turned on the jets and black hair shot out of the 2 jets that worked. There was also soap scum on the sides of the tub. This was my 3rd visit to this condo and 4th atDauphin Island. There was a huge difference in the cleanliness and quality of the furnishings which have been changed out since a year earlier. I have pics and video if you want them.
We apologize for the flaws you experienced with your stay, Tabatha. Pest control did spray the same day you contacted us, and we're sorry if local staff missed informing you. Housekeeping has been notified of your other concerns. Thank you!

We enjoyed our time in 201A. Codes to get into the condo were provided the day of arrival and we had no issues with those. For anyone that is confused by the pictures and description, the home does have a king in 1 room. The second bedroom has a free standing twin and a bunk bed which is twin above a full. The pictures are incorrect at the time of this review. As mentioned in another review, the view from the balcony is a bit blocked by the palm trees. Maybe a few more plates in the kitchen would be nice and possibly ones suitable for kids, I was a bit nervous with my young boys using the ceramic plates and dropping them. Again, we had a nice time and the unit served its purpose.
Hi, Wade! New photos have just been taken for this home and will be uploaded to our site shortly. We apologize for any surprises. The homeowner has purchased additional plates for this home that should arrive soon. Thank you!

This condo is lovely and well equipped. The only suggestion would be to add lamps in the living area. I really do not like overhead lighting. The TV setup was not easy to use. Never found the local stations. Really a nice place and highly recommened.
We appreciate your feedback, Diane, We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay. We're always trying to improve our homes and services and rely on guest experiences to help us know how to best do that. Thank you for staying with us and we hope to host you again.

What a great unit overlooking the Gulf!
The condo was large and provided everyone with their own space and privacy.
It has all the comforts of home.
I would highly recommend this unit.
The complex also offers a heated pool and a boardwalk to the beach. We really enjoyed our stay and Vacasa made all the arrangements necessary. The unit was clean and well
stocked with clean towels and kitchenware.

Vacasa communicated ahead of time and the app also made it easy to check in and out. The unit was well-maintained, comfortable, had a beautiful view, and was perfectly situated on a quiet beach with just a few cute little souvenir type shops and eateries nearby. The heated pool was wonderful, too, even though our December stay was unusually warm.
David C.Dec 2021
The place was clean, spacious, and had everything we needed.
Matt S.Dec 2021
Bright and cozy condo with everything you will need. The unit has 2 huge bedrooms and a spacious living space with all the comforts of home. The balcony overlooks the gulf, the beach, and the pools. It really is a spacious unit. The unit was clean and working with Vacasa was great! I even locked myself out of the unit at night and Teresa quickly came to let me in.
There is a lit boardwalk to the beach- this made the walk to the beach very easy.
The unit also provided bikes (under the stairs) and beach chairs for us to enjoy. I highly recommend #201 and Vacasa. I will definitely be back!
Jay M.Dec 2021
The rental of the condo was flawless, the vacasa app is easy to use. The condo was very clean and well maintained. The pools were clean and well maintained also. The beach and ocean views from the private balcony was relaxing and beautiful. Dauphin Island has great people their hospitality is very welcoming. Look forward to having the pleasure of staying here again.

The house was wonderful! We especially enjoyed the view and the heated pool!
ANN M.Nov 2021
The cleanness, the beautiful water, the heated pool. Wish we could of had 206-A like our last visit with you. It had a much better view of the water and their elevator was working. The palms hide our view and was hard lugging all our luggage and etc. up 2 flights of stairs, they did fix the elevator the last day. My legs are still sore. Please let me know if and when #206-A is available in Feb. -April next year.

WE LOVE OUR VACATION HERE .. EVERYTHING WAS SO NICE ....LOVED OUR APARTMENT AND LOVED THE BEACH....
Steven L.Sep 2021
The location was excellent...the condo was clean, roomy, and easy to find. The only hiccup was we lost the door key on our first trip to the beach...Vacasa sent Teresa to give us another key in less than 15 minutes. Nothing hurt except my pride for losing the key. Wonderful stay... would do it again!

Super nice Condo on the Beach

Suzanne O.Jul 2021
The condo was nice and location was great!
The issues we had was when we checked in at 4:00, the condo was still being cleaned. We waited about 10 minutes and got too hot so we decided to leave for a bit. We got back around 5:00 to check in again and our key box code wouldn't work. After about 10 minutes on the phone with customer service, we realized our key box (201-A) had been switched with the neighbors key box (201-B) because they couldn't access their key either. This made it a bit if a stressful situation after having to stand in the heat waiting and then leave due to our room not being done yet.
The other issue was that the condo wasn't very clean. There were stains on the cabinets and towels. Dust, bugs, and trash under the beds and couch (I'm assuming from the previous renters). Some of the dishes in the cabinets still had grease on them and were still wet. Therefore, we had to rewash most of them.
I had messaged before our trip and asked if there was a Keurig so that we could bring K- cup pods and was told there was one. However, it did not work. We had to then leave again to get ground coffee for the regular coffee maker.
Although I understand things happen, and we enjoyed our stay the best we could, I believe it could have been a little less stressful if it had been cleaned properly and before check in. The condo itself is very nice. It just needs a really good deep cleaning.
Hi, Suzanne! Thank you so much for staying with us at Dauphin Island. We do apologize our inspector misplaced the key and for any stress it put on your stay. Housekeeping will be working on reaching our high standards. We hope to see you again!
Stacy W.Jul 2021
I loved the openness of the locals. They were willing to share all the information of the island with us. I also loved that the beach wasn’t crowded. However, with the holiday it was hard to find open places to eat. Very stress free and I would love to visit again. Food was excellent!
We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your visit! Thank you so much for taking the time to share your valuable feedback with us. We passed your comments along to our local manager to review and we appreciate guest’s preferences as a means to continually improve. We look forward to hosting your next stay!

VACASA’s local management team and housekeeping went over and beyond to make our stay happen. This unit became available the very day we arrived on DI. We booked the unit while on the island when our prior accommodations fell through. Everyone had about 45 minutes notice it was booked. They went over and beyond to make our stay happen. This is a beautiful unit and equipped with most everything you will need. Very spacious and handicap assessable which was very important to us. Will book again!
