Dauphin Island house description

Please check our calendar
KIDS LOVE OUR HOME FROM CRABBING AND FISHING IN THE BACKYARD TO THE AIR HOCKEY TABLE READ ALL OUR GREAT COMMENTS !!! MAXIMUM OF 6 people
Sit back relax and enjoy the beautiful sunsets and breathtaking views of Little Dauphin Island from the covered back porch. You can watch the boats sail past,the dolphins swim, the fish jump and the pelicans fly by or walk to the water with your fishing rod and catch the big one!!!

FOR THE BIRDERS IT'S LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION !!!
March through May is the spring neo-tropical migration where birds from Central and South America stop over for a rest on thier long journey. As many as 324 species have been seen on the island.
Its the perfect place for bird watching. Dauphin Island won Americas birdiest city award in the small coastal city category 2006!!! Guess what Dauphin Island won 2007 also !!!Our home is on the same street as the Shell Mound Park and Goat Tree Reserve. so walk from your home to bird watch .

This beautifully-decorated three bedroom, two bath home sleeps a maximum of six. It includes one king, one queen, and two twins.The open floor plan allows you to prepare your meals in the well equipped kitchen while watching the kids play air hockey or pool!! (The table flips for either pool or air hockey ).

We have a video library for those rainy days also books for the avid reader. my mom loves to sit on the deck and read.The golf course is close by with beautiful ocean views. One of our favorite things to do is go to Skinners and pick up some fresh shrimp for dinner. You cant beat the freshness !!!

Bring your bikes its a short ride to the beautiful white sandy beaches.If you have never experienced the beauty of the gulf coast . now is the time. You can load up the car for a 2 minute drive to the pier and beach. We are one block from Bienville Blvd.Not far from the Ship and Shore(the local grocery/hardware store), Grab the flashlight stay until dusk and go crabbing.

Kids love the excitement of crab catching!!Our son spent hours catching crabs in the back yard !! He actually caught 20 blue crabs which we boiled and ate!! Come enjoy the quiet island living and great family fun.We are on a quiet street with lots of singing birds...

You can now rent kayaks delivered to the house and launch right from the backyard.
SMALL WELL BEHAVED PETS ARE ALLOWED ON A CASE BY CASE BASIS No smoking . ANY EVIDENCE of SMOKING THE DEPOSIT WILL BE FORFEITED.There is also a $400 refundable damage deposit. Weekly unless noted by daily rate. 50% due at time of reservation the remainder due 30 days prior to arrival.

                          Why the Owner Chose Dauphin Island:
                          My best friend and her husband bought a condo here and we came to visit from San Diego Ca.We fell in love with this quiet little island.There are no crowds no matter when you are here if we were on the beaches in San diego it would be difficult with our 7 yr old because of the amount of people ( wall to wall) and the partying.Plus the water is so warm and calm!! Dauphin Island is like going back in time!! no crowds beautiful white sand beaches!! GREAT FOR FAMILIES!!

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          We enjoy the beautiful water views and the constant parade of boats.The neighborhood is quiet with lots of birds and close to the major attractions. The birding attractions are on our street!! Which I didn't know untill after we bought it!!We are a short bike ride to Fort Gaines, the Estuarium, We love the air hockey and pool table and the beachy decor!!!It Just feels like home when we come over the Dauphin Island Bridge.
