Description

Our condo is designed with relaxation and comfort in mind.

KITCHEN: The open floor plan features a spacious kitchen fully stocked with everything you need for preparing meals. In addition to standard dinnerware and cookware, we have small appliances including a George Foreman indoor grill, large crockpot, stick blender, electric griddle, electric mixer, and full-size blender. We even have a spice rack and condiments available.

DINING: The dining table seats six with additional bar seating for three.

LIVING ROOM: The living room has two new leather power recliners and a power reclining couch with USB charging ports. It also has a large smart TV, wireless internet, and cable tv.

The sun room is adjacent to the living room and has a view of the courtyard and a twin day bed with trundle.

BEDROOMS: The "Captain's Quarters" has a king bed with luxury linens, tv, and an en suite bath with tub/shower and fluffy towels! The adjoining sun room, our "Happy Room" has been converted to a space for your children to enjoy. It has a day bed with trundle, tv with DVD player, small desk, books, games, puzzles, DVDs, etc. We also have a pack-n-play and booster chair for your use.

The "Flamingo Room" has a comfortable queen bed and tv. The second full bath is across the hall. It has a shower stall and shares the fun "flamingo" theme!

OUTDOORS: Walk right out the door and within 2 minutes (we timed it!) your toes will be in our beautiful white sandy private beach! No elevators, steps or large lobbies. Watch the dolphins and shrimp boats in early mornings. Enjoy the gentle waves of the East End beach or venture down to the public beach on the West End of the island for more waves and beautiful scenery. To add to your enjoyment, we provide a beach wagon, chairs, beach toys, towels, and a small charcoal grill for your use. There is also a community-shared pool and outdoor shower.

SECURITY: Dauphin Surf Club is primarily a residential complex in a secure, gated community. You can rest easy knowing you are in a safe place.

If you are coming to the beach to get away from hustle and bustle, crowded beaches, and traffic, then Happy Joy Condo at Dauphin Island is the place for you.

Additional Property Information

Gated community, no stairs

Dauphin Island is a different kind of beach town. There are no chain hotels or restaurants and no high rises. Restaurants are family-owned. You won't encounter the crowds and traffic that are common at other beaches. Local attractions include the Estuarium (also known as the Dauphin Island Sea Lab), Fort Gaines, Mobile Bay Ferry, Audobon Bird Sanctuary, and Cedar Point Fishing Pier.

In nearby Mobile, you can visit the Mobile History Museum, historic downtown Mobile, or the USS Alabama.

Dauphin Island has been designated as the “Sunset Capital of Alabama,” so you haven’t lived until you’ve experienced the approaching dusk of day from any point on the island. Located at the southernmost point of Alabama – 3 miles south of the Mobile Bay – Dauphin Island feels worlds away, but is easy to reach.

"Happy Joy" Steps to the Private Beach!
Relaxing

My family had a great time at “Happy Joy” condo. It was amazing to be so accessible to the beach. The condo had everything we needed. The only thing we could have used was a few more days!!! Hope to be back soon!

"Happy Joy" Steps to the Private Beach!
We loved Happy Joy!

We enjoyed our stay at Happy Joy. We appreciated that there were plenty of baskets & hooks in every room, shampoo/conditioner in the shower, and that beach chairs/umbrella/boogie boards/sand toys were provided! The space was perfect for families with kids - coloring books, pack-n-play, highchair inside. The beach was shallow with plenty of waves to keep kids of all ages occupied! The owner was quick to reply and help us with scheduling changes. Thanks for a great trip!

"Happy Joy" Steps to the Private Beach!
Perfection!

My husband and I (senior citizens) were longing for a quiet beach after a year of suffering from Covid-19 shut in. This vacation was exactly what we needed! This property is so clean and had everything we needed! It’s a short walk to the beautiful beach and pool! We had a wonderful night's rest in the comfy, king bed! We would highly recommend it and we are looking forward to our next visit! Great vacation!

"Happy Joy" Steps to the Private Beach!
Wonderful stay!

Joy was wonderful to correspond with prior to our arrival, with very detailed instructions that were easy to follow. The condo was just as described, and perfect for our family of two adults and 3 small children. The welcoming touches of toys and books for the kids were amazing! Having a wagon of chairs and beach activities to take to the beach was perfect. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed for preparing meals. We can’t say enough good things about the stay! Thanks Joy, we hope to be back!

Kick off yr shoes, exhale, and relax!

My fiancée & I took a week at this amazing condo to ‘get away from it all,’ and are so happy with the result. The beach is so close you can hear the waves from the front door! Inside, the condo is super-clean, with amenities everywhere! Laundry detergent, dishwashing pods, black washcloths for makeup removal, decked out kitchen, good WiFi... you’d be hard put to find something missing. We spent plenty of time on the island, but you’re also in striking distance of Mobile, Biloxi, take the ferry to Gulf Shores, or take a short drive to Ocean Springs (the Walter Anderson museum is definitely worthwhile.) Yum it up at the Lighthouse Bakery on the island (danishes are crazy good,) Spot of Tea in Mobile, and Sugar Rush Doughnuts & Coffee in Bayou La Batre for breakfast. Po’ Boys for lunch at Pirate’s, and grab dinner at Catalina’s in Bayou La Batre or Islanders on Dauphin. Everyone is super-nice. We kinda had a hard time finding a bad meal. Joy was very receptive to our needs, and the on-site manager, Dee, seemed ready to help at a moment’s notice. We didn’t need her, though: the place was rock solid from the get-go! Go! Enjoy!

"Happy Joy" Steps to the Private Beach!
This was the absolute most relaxing short vacation I have had with my husband in over 30 years.

We found the most wonderful place to just go relax for a few days and our Host, Joy, made it so easy that I felt like I was home with all the comforts. We only had to get the food we ate because she had everything you could possibly want right there. I had a few questions and she stayed in contact immediately until she had an answer for me. I will be going back again next year when my husband and I need a quick getaway from the stresses in life.

Beautiful Condo

We had a relaxing vacation in this beautiful condo! We were the only ones on the beach and enjoyed searching for pretty seashells! The condo was perfect and had everything we needed. Everything was extremely up to date and well cared for. The beds were so comfortable. We would absolutely stay here again!

The perfect place for our short Fall excursion. Ideal for families with young children.

Happy Joy Vacay

We rented this condo with plans to stay for one week. After only 2 nights, we had to evacuate due to Hurricane Sally. Joy, the owner, was immediately in touch with us working out with us what we needed to do. She stayed in contact with us the whole time. After evacuation, she continued to stay in touch with us to make decisions on what we should do. We are very, very thankful for the kindness she has shown us.
This condo is an excellent place to stay, perfectly located close to the beach. Newly remodeled and has super comfy beds!! Although Sally took this trip away from us, we will be going back to Dauphin Island and we WILL most definitely be staying at Happy Joy.

Home away from home

We really enjoyed our stay and was very comfortable and felt at home! Everything was very clean and we had our 2yr old grandson with us and he loved the beach toys! I loved that we had our own area on the beach and no problem walking 2 minutes, the beach wagon and chairs were so nice to have to use! I now want a flamingo room! Thank you so much for sharing your home! We will be back! :)
God Bless, Amanda
