Beloved by families (and their pets) for generations, Dauphin Island remains a popular beach destination for tourists across Alabama and the rest of the country. Dauphin Island vacation rental owners value the island's small-town feel and close-knit community; it's a part of why they choose local people to care for their homes year after year.
Local care is better, so we invest in our local Dauphin Island staff: our employees—not contractors—are highly trained and have access to the greater company's resources. They're available 24/7 to attend to guest-related emergencies, follow up on maintenance requests, and even check on your home in case of inclement weather. They know what it takes to rent a vacation home on Dauphin Island because they live in the area, and love the island as much as you.
While there are no regulations exclusive to short term rentals, getting your home ready could require some attention to local government rules. Whether you're re-painting, making an addition, or building a pool, you'll need a permit to move forward. Additionally, homeowners must abide by the dune and tree ordinances, which are meant to protect your property and the property of your neighbors. While not subject to a per-night booking fee, guests staying in vacation rentals must pay a four percent state lodging tax, a two percent Mobile County lodging tax, and a five percent Dauphin Island lodging tax.
Rent with a local team with the marketing, technological, and customer support resources of a major company. Contact us and find out how you could earn more, worry less, and rent with ease when you work with a full-service Dauphin Island vacation rental manager.

Owning a second home shouldn’t be your second job. Vacasa takes care of the details so you can enjoy your home.
In 2009, after assuming responsibility for his wife's family vacation home, our founder Eric Breon struggled to find a property manager capable of providing quality care and a satisfying financial return. This is how Vacasa began—with a vision to deliver a seamless experience for vacation home owners, through innovative technology and local staff, wherever guests want to travel.
In the last decade, thousands of homeowners have joined the Vacasa family, and we now manage more than 26,000 vacation properties around the world. We’d love to help you discover the Vacasa difference: earn more, worry less, and rent with ease.
