Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: I am retired from the fire department and bought the home from my family. Two months later hurricane Katrina totally removed the house from the lot. We rebuilt finishing March 2008.

Why the Owner Chose Dauphin Island:
The original house was built by my grandfather in 1956 for the pleasure of his daughters family. As a child I had full freedom running the beach with very few houses in sight. In 2005 my family wanted to sell and I did not so I bought it from them. Hurricane Katrina totally removed the house from the property two months later. Heart broken, I began to rebuilt on August 12, 2007 finishing March 21, 2008 naming the house 'Grace Like Rain', with my first rental client checking in on 3/22/08. When you experience it yourself, you will understand my love for the location.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
THE PRIVATE Plunge POOL: House features an elevated fiberglass pool. We have a Private, heated Pool facing the Gulf beach of Dauphin Island. House Books Quickly. Pool is Pre-Set @ 90 Degrees oct thru mid May however, that is not to imply that it will be 90 degrees or even be warm enough during the winter to swim. (PLEASE NOTE THAT WEATHER CONDITIONS MAY CAUSE POOL TO BE HOTTER OR COLDER THAN SETTINGS) POOL SIZE IS 8'X15'(4 feet deep). (holds 10-12 People) We cannot guarantee performance and function of the pool and no discounts will be given due to any issues with the pool. The house itself is better than advertised. It is well stocked and everything you would need is available and works. A perfect place for a large group. The living/dining/kitchen area are spacious, with plenty of room for everyone. Great location on the beach. Vacant lot next door same owner. Volley ball net and tether ball.
