Other things to note

Walk to gulf beach but do not park on street or surrounding homes. Obey the speed limit at all times on the island. Great grocery 20 minutes from the island on high way 193 (Dauphin Island Parkway) -Greer's Old Bay Market. Great charter boat fishing from DIs Marina. Great pizzas at Island Rainbow just 3 blocks from house. Skinner's seafood has great local seafood --- you cook or they will cook for you. Ship and Shore is a small local grocery and hardware store to pick up stuff you forgot....Daupin Island is a small family centered place unique compared to the fast pace of modern life. Best gulf front resort for slowing down and breathing in nature at its finest

We could not have had a better experience. The atmosphere was wonderful, and it was the perfect spot for our family to enjoy beautiful weather and special time together. Thank you, Jan, for sharing your beach home with us. We can't wait to come back!

Big beautiful home on the water with an old time bay house feel. Lots of art, antiques and well done shabby chic, huge comfy sofas, stunning view from the living room's wall of windows, delightful screened porch, shady waterfront veranda downstairs. Loved every minute.

We had a wonderful stay. This property has all a vacationer would want: great hosts who communicate quickly and kindly, great location on the water, large dock, covered parking, plenty of room, and nicely appointed interiors. If you need some peace and quiet or want a place to call home as you explore the island, this is a fantastic choice. A great option for a family or couple getaway. This was a great Airbnb experience!
