This is your Sweet Home Alabama!! "SET SAIL" has a complete wraparound porch with french door entrances to and from each bedroom, and water views from all. Three large bedrooms with queen beds, with the fourth having a set of bunk beds and sleeper sofa. Air-conditioned, and ceiling fans throughout! You will love your large well-equipped kitchen with its lengthy breakfast bar and dining area, and the living area with an elegant gas Fireplace. In addition, you'll have a comfy family area with a brand-new Vizio Smart TV and large table for board game playing. WiFi or plug in, you are connected for free! Sit on your decks and enjoy your views of the spectacular sunrises and sunsets! This is a perfect getaway for families and friends, couples and romantics!
Sunbathe on the lower deck facing the Bay, or on your private beach with a tidal lagoon for fishing or swimming! Your own shade pavilion is great for napping, as you listen to the fish jumping or birds flying in the skies above. An outdoor shower is under the home to rinse off after a day at the beach. Grill your fresh fish, crabs or shrimp bought or caught locally. Go shelling along the water's edge. Relax with your wine on the comfy sofa in front of the fireplace. Greet the mornings with coffee and the sunrise on your deck or your own private pavilion. Set Sail has a screened-in deck great for eating 'outdoors' or using the two camping cots on hand for sleeping, which kids love. There is also a little public skateboard park just down the road, and a swimming pool/cabana at the local golf club.
We are pet-friendly, too! Quick and easy access to restaurants, Island activities and shopping. Dauphin Island is only several miles long and 1 3/4 mile wide at its widest spot! 45 minutes to Mobile Regional Airport, 2.5 hr drive to New Orleans, and a ferry ride over to the Gulf Shores area. Other nearby airports are Gulfport, MS and Pensacola, FL. In addition, the Island has its very own smallcraft Airstrip. A Golf Course minutes away, here on the Island, overlooking the waters of the Gulf of Mexico. A public beach with activities/vendors is on the West End in the Spring and Summer. If you visit us in the Fall, it's even more quiet on the Island and the weather is balmy. We have even been swimming in the Gulf in November and February!
Dauphin Island is an unforgettable resort destination, yet without the crowds or fastfood chains of other coastal towns--not even a stoplight! We have been designated as the "Sunset Capital of Alabama" and it is well-deserved! The Island is also proud to have been designated as a bird sanctuary and dubbed the "Birdiest Coastal Town in America"! its Audubon Sanctuary is not to miss. Visit the world-reknowned Sea Lab and Public Estuarium here on the Island. The Island is rich in history, and is a haven for a great many of the Gulf Coast's well-known artists and craftspeople. We have our own Arts & Heritage Council and Gallery here. You won't walk anywhere on the sand without coming across beautiful seashells at your feet. The clean, shallow emerald water is warm and the birds and waterfowl who inhabit and migrate through are everywhere. Visit the waves of the Gulf beach across the road, or your own backyard which is a private beach on the gentle Bay. Take a fishing charter from the Island's marina, because here, fishing is King! Hang out at the local pubs! Eat some oysters. The people are warm and friendly - it's the South!
Located on the West End of historic Dauphin Island, the first French settlement in the southern United States, 'Set Sail' is a large, beautiful newer-built 4 bdrm home on the Island's exquisite powder white sands, with direct views of the Gulf of Mexico to the home's front, which is just across the road, and the Mississippi Sound (Bay) to its back. The Island is just south of Mobile, Alabama (the birthplace of Mardi Gras!) and is accessible by a bridge to its North and an auto ferry at the Island's East.
We love everything about Set Sail and know y'all will, too!

About the owner: We are Captain Jim Cash and Mrs. Valerie Cash, we enjoy boating, traveling, the beach and relaxing! We previously lived in Marina del Rey, California, which is a yachting community at the ocean on the West Side of busy and hectic Los Angeles, only getting to visit our Island home, Set Sail, on occasion, and decided to permantly move to Dauphin Island almost 3 years ago. So we bought a second home here and took up residence, and now we are able to enjoy Set Sail more often, when we do not have guests there! The great thing is since we live so close now, we have the opportunity to make sure Set Sail is kept up nicely, and we love that our guests want to come back again and again. We have a teriffic vacation property management team right here on the Island (Island Resort Management), and they are exceptional when it comes to hospitality and looking after Set Sail. We care very much about our great beach home and our beautiful Island! We also take pleasure in bragging to our Los Angeles friends that there is not even a single stoplight here on Dauphin Island! Paradise Found!
Why the Owner Chose Dauphin Island:
Dauphin Island is 50 mins from Mobile Airport, 2.5 hrs from New Orleans. The beaches are incredibly powder white, uncrowded and the water is warm. There is fishing aplenty.

And of course, Southern Hospitality abounds.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Peaceful beach living! Water views on all sides of the home. Swimming, fishing, sailing, birdwatching, relaxing, local Southern food!
