Take a look at our Dauphin Island home with PRIVATE POOL # 99032 or our River Cottage #241969 (3 br/3bath waterfront home which sleeps 9!).


Welcome to Harmony!

This home was featured on HGTV in 2008! Escape from the crowds and enjoy this quiet residential community on the EAST end of Dauphin Island. Our private beach is peaceful and relaxing! This beautiful home is located just a few minutes walk from the private community beach, pool, tennis courts, and playground. Discover the East end of Dauphin Island....

Kids and adults alike will enjoy the ground-floor game room which has a snack kitchen and is adjacent to the outdoor living space with gas grill and outdoor dining area. The ground-floor also features a bedroom with a queen sized bed and bath.

The main floor is the main gathering area. The spacious dining table is ideal for family meals and games, and the comfortable living area is adjacent to the large porch and open kitchen. Two bedrooms with queen beds and a full bath complete this floor.

The Master Suite is located on the upper floor... with access to the upstairs porch and a luxurious bath with separate tub and shower. A bunk room is adjacent to the second bath on this level, and a study with a portable baby crib(and fax machine!) provides a quiet getaway for reading, games, or sleeping!

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2002

                  About the owner: Our family loves Dauphin Island. This is a photo of us on the back deck of our home. We built our home in 2002, and have enjoyed many fun times at the home. Our boys enjoy skimboarding, playing on the beach, and having friends down to the island to visit. We love to relax on 'the most comfortable sofas in the world' and on our screen porches and back deck.

                  Why the Owner Chose Dauphin Island:
                  We chose Dauphin Island because it is a great getaway only 45 minutes or so from our primary residence, yet seems a world away. When we cross the bridge to the island we feel like we are on vacation, even if it's just for the weekend! We love that the island has some of the best food around! We love cinnamon rolls from Lighthouse Bakery (if you ride a bike to get it the calories don't count), and pizza from Island Rainbow. Fresh shrimp from Skinner's is a favorite dinner.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Our home is located on the East end of Dauphin Island, in a quiet, residential area with private neighborhood pool and beach. We hope that visitors to our home will feel like they have their own beach house for the week they are there. Our home is well equipped with everything WE need, so you will probably find everything you need! This is not just a 'rental home', it is our second home, and we love sharing it and Dauphin Island with our guests.
