              Location

              Dauphin Island has the Audubon Bird Santuary which is the home of many migrating species.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2000

              About the owner: I love the outdoors especially my time on Dauphin Island with my husband Phil. We have spent many incredible hours walking & talking on the beach, watching sunsets, relaxing on the porch with good friends, seeing the night stars away from the lights of the city.

              Why the Owner Chose Dauphin Island:
              We bought our beach house in 2000 for ourselves and our two labrador retrievers because Dauphin Island has dog friendly beaches. It reminded Dot of what beaches were like 30 years ago in South Carolina, family friendly, uncluttered and fun.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Our house is on West Beach which is all single family homes with no condos. It is walking distance to the beach (you don't have to cross the road to get there). You can hear the waves crashing, the sea gulls and buoy sounds and the dogs love it as much as we do!
