Dauphin Island house description

Bay front on the North Sound side (Gulf beach is right across the street, with easy access---about 300 feet).

Soothing water on both the front and back of the house! Stand in your living room and look at the beach through both the front and rear windows! This place is so unique---where else do you find a true beach island like this? Whenever we go out to the house, we come back completely recharged and happy.

Pet Friendly! Bring your whole family---we welcome all friendly 2 and 4 legged creatures!!!!

Relaxing!
Like a step back in time! Dauphin Island is still largely untouched by high rises, condos and large developments.

Our house is perfect for just chilling out on the water, walking along the beach, looking at the stars on the deck! We're on the north side of the sandy beach, perfect for small kids and dogs, but footsteps away from the Gulf side with the breakers. The Gulf beach is about 100 feet on the other side of the island (the island is pretty narrow there) and there are NO houses on the Gulf beach where we are, so it's like having the best of both worlds---your waterfront house overlooking the bay and your private beach on the Gulf!

Everything included---complete kitchen, bedding, TV, washer/dryer, cable TV and internet access. PETS ARE WELCOME!!

Email us about our pet friendly Bed and Breakfast hotel in New Orleans,...packages are available if you want to visit the beach plus stop in New Orleans too!

Keywords: House on narrow western part of island, directly on beach overlooking north bay (shallow, calm waters, very private beach). Gulf beach, with breakers, directly across street, with easy access. See both bodies of water from inside house.

                  Location

                  Beachcombing, birdwatching, watching the dolphins, bicycling, boating, playing in the surf with the kids and the dogs, sailing. Small golf course on island. Relaxing and enjoying one of the last small communities on the Gulf Coast that's largely unspoiled! A true island, that makes you feel you're someplace totally different and serene the minute you arrive! Private, beautiful nature, great for writers, artists, folks who want a break from glitz and commerce!

                  Why Dauphin Island:
                  We love this place and we love taking our poochies to the beach. They always enjoy it!!! We are so busy that alot of times we find it hard to get away. We want other people to enjoy what we have enjoyed for years. Thus the reason for renting our beach house.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Dog Friendly!!! There are not alot of dog friendly beaches on the Gulf Coast. So please bring your pooch and enjoy.
