Your Dauphin Island beach house rental sits parallel to Gulf Shores at the southern end of Alabama, facing the Gulf of Mexico. It’s about 40 miles up the highway to Mobile, a cultural hub on Alabama’s Gulf Coast. Dauphin Island guards the entrance to Mobile Bay, and it’s about a thirty mile drive across water and land to Gulf Shores’ town center.
Chances are you’re staying in a Dauphin Island vacation rental to enjoy the island’s pristine beaches, like Public Beach.

For a dose of adventure, rent a kayak and paddle around the bay, or launch your boat from the East End Landing for an afternoon on the waves.
