"Island Time" has a great layout for a beach house, with a large kitchen and "keeping area" on one end, and a living room on the other end of the house. The third bedroom is a "bunk room" with a TV , so in the evenings, there is plenty of space for everyone. 

This great beach house is less than one hundred feet from the Gulf, one of the closest houses to the water on the Island. You'll enjoy great views from just about every window, and can sit on the deck and dolphin-watch.

What an awesome stay!

This house was perfect for a great, relaxing vacation. The house is very nice! It does need a more thorough cleaning and the cookware could be replaced but was presentable overall. This is the reason for not giving an excellent review. The views would be hard to beat! Drinking coffee on the deck every morning with the breeze from the ocean while watching dolphins and shrimp boats was my favorite hands down. It was spectacular!

A week of relaxation

Great location, very restful. Beds were very comfy. Owner very quickly responded when air and ice maker went out. Kitchen utensils and cookware in poor condition. We planned to cook since island had few restaurants and had to go buy knives and pan. We still had a great vacation!!

Hi Nancy,


WOW, what an AMAZING week on Dauphin Island. We absolutely fell in love with it. Island Time was PERFECT. The week went by WAY TOO FAST and we did NOT want to leave. I have never seen the kids have so much fun at the beach. We certainly have so many cherished memories from this trip. The kids especially loved seeing the dolphins swim and jump by the beach house. They are still talking about it. Thank you so much for making our family vacation a place that we definitely want to come back to.





Thank you for letting us know about your stay at Island Time.  We are so happy that you and your faimily enjoyed your stay and were able to create new memories

Please let us know when you would like to return to Dauphin Island.  We are already accepting reservations of next summer

Thank you again for staying with us


Spectacular,restful,quiet,immaculate, pet friendly, ON the gulf cottage

When life gets overwhelming and hectic, this is a spectacular,restful getaway. The cottage was immaculate and well appointed. At high tide, the water laps at the bottom of the stilts upon which it rests. It has WI-FI and Comcast cable tv. The unit was so easy to rent. Dauphin Island Beach Rentals were great to work with. I got the key stuck in the door and they were here toot sweet. The deck had a gate at the top of the steps which was great for my dog.This definitely is a place I hope to return to. Be aware that here are a lot of steps. L

We loved our trip

  We loved our trip and your beach house! The Christmas tree was such a surprise. Everything was perfect. You make booking effortless with your efficiency and professionalism.
The sunrise/sunsets were glorious and the location to West Beach Park was fantastic. We walked to the end everyday and sometimes twice.   The surf was surprisingly close. I worry about the future for you and hope Dauphin does not have any more storms. . Everything was perfect for us. We had plenty of supplies and necessities. However, with the great food at the Common Loon and Skinners we barely ate at the house. We came for walking on the beach and eating the great shrimp and that is exactly what we did. Thank you once again for sharing your home another year with us.

Wonderul Rental Home to Build Family Memories!

This was our first trip to Dauphin Island, AL. Island Time II was perfectly equipped for our family vacation needs while enjoying time away from home. The Island was filled with history and charm. We couldn't ask for a better rental. The heated pool was a bonus for our 5 year old as he gazed out at the pool. The plexiglass helped greatly by keeping out the elements. Also, the security of the locking gate was extra peace of mind. Renting Island Time II added to our memorable Holiday Season. Exceptional service and attention to detail from The Meyers/Meyer Realty. We will be back again.

great vacay!!!

This house was a wonderful choice.Fully furnished with ample space. I was able to enjoy the sound and view of the the ocean and beach right from the porch.Very very relaxing environment. Not a lot of traffic or noise. Also liked the fact that there were not other houses sitting right next door to this one,good privacy.Loved the double doors off of living room and bedrooms, being able to hear the ocean at night time was great. If you want a relaxing calm vacation with all the comforts of home this is the place to stay. Its a little chilly in Feb,and water to cold to get in,but a great house. It also has a heated pool that would have been great to use,but heater was not working at time of my stay. But other than that no other complaints.Would definately consider returning to this house.

Spring Break on Dauphin Island
Posted on: 11/14/2012
Our family of 4 adults (ages 40-80) and 3 children (7,5,2) just spent a relaxing week at Island Time II on Dauphin Island - What a great house! Things we loved... great single story floor plan, very neat and clean house, plenty of laundry detergent and dishwashing soap, lots of beach towels available, linens supplied and beds made upon arrival, easy access to house upon arrival with key in lock box by back door, ideal distance to gulf, nice beach chairs for use - FYI - I was skeptical about the pool, fearing our children would not want to venture to the beach but that was definitely not the case - They started the day in the pool (perfect size, perfect location) and then once an adult was ready to head to the gulf they were happy to leave the pool - and of course the gulf water is beautiful- Then in the evenings we ALL enjoyed the toasty warm pool when the March afternoon temperatures started to drop -
