About the owner: Hi! We're David and Nancy, and we live in Daphne, AL with our two school-age kids, so we have been making this house available to guests to enjoy as well.
We designed and built this beach house after our original house was destroyed by Katrina, and put a lot of time and thought into how to do it right. The end result is a 'Key West'-style cottage, but with all the amenities of home.
Why the Owner Chose Dauphin Island: We have lived in various Gulf of Mexico beach towns since 1990, and fell in love with Dauphin Island's quiet, rustic charm. There are very few places left where you can drive down a two-lane road along the beach, and see what the towns along the Gulf were like in the days before high-rise condos became the norm.
Most of the vacation homes on Dauphin Island are single-family beach houses sitting right on the beach. No traffic, no crowds, just a quiet barrier island to enjoy beach combing, fishing, shelling, kayaking, kite-flying, grilling dinner on the deck, and star gazing at night.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: There is nothing like staying right on the beach. Being able to simply walk down the steps and be on the beach is wonderful. Sitting on the deck reading a book while listening to the waves, playing on the beach with the kids and then coming inside for lunch, are great memories, as are chasing crabs at night on the beach with a flashlight, or sitting on the deck and marveling at the beautiful night sky and millions of stars!
