About the Property
HGTV Featured Home in Gated Community with Community Pool/Beach/Tennis
This beautiful home is located on a cul-de-sac -- just a few minutes walk from the private community beach, swimming pool, tennis courts, and playground. Kids and adults alike will enjoy the ground-floor game room which has a snack kitchen, small pool table, and is adjacent to the outdoor living space with gas grill and outdoor dining area and deck overlooking the dunes. The ground-floor also features a bedroom and bath. The main floor is the main gathering area. The spacious dining table is ideal for family meals and games; and the comfortable living area is adjacent to the screened porch and open kitchen. Two bedrooms with queen beds and a full bath complete this floor. The master suite is on the third floor -- with access to the upstairs screened porch and a luxurious bath with separate tub and shower. A bunk room is adjacent to the second bath on this level. Make sure and scroll to the bottom of the listing to see a link to our web album with lots more pictures of our home!
A study with a porta crib (and fax machine!) provides a quiet getaway for reading, games, or sleeping!

There's a lot to do on Dauphin Island! Visit the Dauphin Island SeaLab and Estuarium, Fort Gaines (a historic Civil War fort), and beautiful nearby Bellingrath Gardens. The whole island is a bird sanctuary. And especially during the spring and fall, you can see many different types of birds on their migratory trips.
Charter fishing is great.
You can charter boats for both fishing and sightseeing. Enjoy taking a boat ride to see the historic Sand Island Lighthouse.
You can also take a car ferry ride across Mobile Bay to visit the Gulf Shores area -- with its water parks and outlet malls. There are several seafood restaurants on the island, as well as a chocolate shop, bakery, and an ice cream shop! You can ride bikes on the bike trails which cover most of the island!
Our home is just a short drive to Mobile, Alabama, where you can visit many area museums such as the Exploreum Children's Museum or our brand new Mobile Museum of Art. In season, enjoy a Bay Bears baseball game, and the Mardi Gras! Mobile has a wonderful family-oriented Mardi Gras celebration.

Our home is great for kids, and our family is happy to share our 'toys'! We have a nice selection of family games, puzzles, a big can of beach shovels and buckets, and a great space for the kids to play downstairs. Our cul-de-sac is quiet, and we have a big driveway and sand for digging! ...moreless

Year Purchased: 2002
About the owner: Our family built our Dauphin Island getaway in 2002, as a place to escape, relax, and build family memories with our own family of 3 boys. We live in nearby Mobile, Alabama and are custom homebuilders, so if you decide you need your own Dauphin Island home, we can help with that, too!
Why the Owner Chose Dauphin Island, AL, USA:
We love the East End of Dauphin Island for its quiet, residential feel. Located near the end of a cul-de-sac, we love the beautiful dune views and quiet street. Our neighborhood has a private community pool, private neighborhood beach access, and a tennis court. You can easily take long walks on the beach, down to the Audubon Bird Sanctuary, and back to the neighborhood via the bike/walking trail.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Because this is our personal family home, it is equipped how we like it to be! You'll find lots of coffee cups (Julie prefers tea, however), dishes, and cooking utensils. The kids will enjoy the big bucket of sand toys, scooters, and bikes, which we are happy to share with you though we can't 'guarantee' them. Our home was designed to provide a comfortable main living area for gathering with the whole family, yet also provide several different 'getaway' spots such as the back deck, hammock, or 3rd floor porches, when you just need a little quiet time!
