“Nice condo, decent walk to beach!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

We booked our condo on VRBO. Covered parking and the facility is kept up well. Indoor/outdoor pool...very clean with plenty of seating. We never had to wait on an elevator and were able to park super close to our unit. Expect a good 10-15 minute walk to the beach though (even though the condos ARE beach front). We were told the water used to be very close but after hurricane Katrina the shore line has slowly moved out. The beach is nice and not crowded. This was our first trip to the area and were surprised to see multiple oil rigs in the distance. If you can get past that, this is a great place to visit!

For a thousand a week this was by far the best stay I've ever had. I bought a crab trap and caught and ate fresh crab. It was an experience of a life time! I would recommend it to anyone. The only down fall was the walk to the water but worth every step.

The building and amenities are very nice. Property well kept up. Staff was very nice and helpful. Gave me quick overview of island for eating, shopping, etc. Booked through ACP Real Estate on line. Was easy and efficient. Liked that they did not have a 3 night minimum. View from room was great. Would stay here again!

We were here for a long weekend leading up to the 4th of July. We used ACP Reality (loved them), and stayed on the 7th (top) floor. The condo was so spacious and well done- we had 4 adults, 3 kids with us. The kitchen had everything you might need or think you might need, and the washer/dryer was necessary. We loved the 2 pools, especially the outdoor pool. The only thing we did not enjoy was slogging through the warm/ marshy water to get from the condo to the beach. The beach was amazingly calm and uncrowded. We would definately come back here!

Room Tip: The upper floor is the way to go.

This was our first stay on the island. We used ACP reality for booking and will continue to use them for years to come. Very friendly and knowledgable about things to do and information for your trip. The room was comfortable, great view of the ocean. We used the grills downstairs by the pool area twice. The only problem we had with this condo was the king bed was not very comfortable. It creaked and made noise with every move either of us made. May just need maintenance or replaced.
Great kitchen appliances and we found everything we needed for basic cooking. I would suggest bringing your own cutting knives and larger skillets if you plan to cook a lot which we did due to fresh seafood on the island. Cant wait till June we are coming back! !
Worst part of the trip: Leaving!!

This is my second visit to Dauphin Island and my second visit to Holiday Isle. My family loves this condo complex. We were even more surprised with the wonderful accommodations with Condo #608. it is well appointed and perfectly stocked. One of the nicer condos I have rented over the years. My teenage daughter commented on how much she likes it because it feels like home. You can't beat the beauty and privacy of Dauphin Island. I am constantly recommending it to friends.

Our condo owner, Julie, made our vacation top notch. We used a 'by owner" website . She was so easy to work with and answered our multitude of questions (it was our first visit) patiently and thoroughly. The condo was decorated beautifully and had all the upscale amenities for a restful stay. Very well stocked! The complex is well taken care of and we loved the pools, sauna, fitness center and especially the beach. We grilled out on the large grills by the pool and enjoyed an adult beverage while gazing at the beach and watching the kids playing in the pool. Our condo was very well located on the second floor with front door covered parking and far enough away from the outside pool to enjoy the quiet from the balcony. We spent a lot of time on the balcony because it is so large and had great views up and down the beach. The sand is very, very clean at the beach. Dauphin Island is uncrowded so our kids enjoyed biking the island. There is a great bird sanctuary to visit and the bike trails go everywhere. Sea Lab, the Fort and the ferry ride were awesome. We saw dolphins while on the Ferry ride. The Ferry travels across the mouth of the Mobile Bay to another Fort on the other side and then we drove to Gulf Shores for the outlet mall. What a change from peaceful Dauphin Island to the commercial Gulf Shores, AL. We will return to Dauphin Island again and again for our summers.

Room Tip: our second floor room was perfect. floors 3-7 have to use third floor level uncovered parking deck...
