About the owner: Since our 2 sons were small, we have always had a boat and enjoyed fishing. Now that we have 5 grandchildren who range from 2 years old to 14 years old, we enjoy family outings to the islands off the Alabama coastline. Red Snapper, flounder, and other salt water catch await fishermen. They all love to go to Shell Island and pick up beautiful shells and make footprints on the smooth untouched sand. You can only get to the island by boat. We work in the forest and real estate industries. The times we spend at the River House make memories for a lifetime.
Why the Owner Chose Dauphin Island: The boat launch on the deep water canal is perfect to launch our boat. It is quiet but is close to so many fun activities.
The Unique Benefits at this House: We enjoy visiting Dauphin Island Sea Lab, the Civil War forts and Bellingrath Gardens. It's a quiet place to sit and relax and do nothing. We would like to share our get away with you.
