About Loni

Local resident lived in this house for 10 years. Offshore supply boat Captain and local Real Estate Broker. Currently live in Mobile and close enough to respond to any issues that might arise.

Loni purchased this chalet in 2001

Why Loni chose Royal Lagoons

'Captains Quarters' was purchased as my primary residence in 2001 and was not rented out until recently. I settled on Dauphin Island because it is the most 'laid back', relaxing place I have ever found. The fishing is fantastic, the beaches are beautiful, and the Sunsets are phenomenal!

What makes this chalet unique

Sunsets, sunsets, sunsets!!! Fishing and crabbing off the 36' pier. Swimming or shelling a 10 minute walk on the beaches of the Gulf of Mexico. Scooter or jet ski rentals minutes away. Bike trails, best birding in the Southeast, Audubon Park, historic Fort Gains, Dauphin Island Sea Lab and Estuarium. The best offshore Red Snapper and sports fishing in the Gulf and inshore speckled trout, white trout, flounder, crabbing and red fishing on the private pier. Mobile Bay Ferry available for day trips to Fort Morgan or Gulf Shores. The casinos of Biloxi are 1 hour away and New Orleans a short 2.5 hours away.

Best View Ever!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here over July 4th and had the best time. This was our second trip to the island and we are already planning next years trip. The house was spotless and had everything we needed for our week stay. Loni was great to communicate with and answered any questions I had. The view here is AMAZING!! Our boys enjoyed fishing off the pier and I enjoyed early morning quiet time outside listening to the waves. This house will be one we rent again!!

Beautiful setting and lovely home

  • 4 of 5

Our only suggestion to improve on our stay would be to have the wall switches labeled especially in the living room. Labeling all switches throughout the house would be helpful.

The decorations were great and we loved the turquoise color.

Extra 9 volt batteries in the house would be helpful because we had a smoke alarm beep and pulled out the battery.

What a wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not do it justice! When we walked inside we were amazed by the charm of the place and the beautiful views of the bay. And then to step outside onto the decks and the! And it has all the basic necessities for a nice vacation. It is such a sweet comfortable home and we had a great time.

Fun fall getaway

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful place on the bayside of DI! It's was perfect for our family of 5. The upstairs kid area was cozy and comfortable. The master bedroom was roomy and inviting. We cooked 3 nights in the well equipped kitchen. Fishing off the pier provided much fun entertainment! DI is our favorite getaway and we look forward to coming back!
