Why Pat Bullard chose Alabama

This house gives you the feel of being at the beach, but the privacy of a yard. Located in an area of the island that is easily accessable to all activities.

What makes this cottage unique

This house is all on one level with entrance access under covered parking for easy loading and unloading. The house is pet friendly and family friendly. The large back yard is great for pets as well as families for games and grilling out. The dunes behind the house are its best feature . It is the best place to spend the evening watching the sunset over the gulf.

Relax, Refresh, Reconnect

  • 5 of 5

My family reconnected from across the country for a relaxing vacation together. The house and yard were wonderful. It was well maintained and conveniently situated for long strolls along a beautiful beach. We relaxed in the back yard and enjoyed an evening fire. We all left refreshed and already planning a return.

Comfortable, easy living

  • 5 of 5

Pat's house was roomy, clean and comfortable. We were so happy with how dog friendly it was making our stay even more relaxing. This was our first trip to Dauphin Island and this house was a good home base so we could explore the island. We sure enjoyed ourselves.

Nice, neat and clean

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Sunset Dunes. It was nice to come home to a house that everyone could spread out in, after a long day of activities. There is a good selection of cooking ware and utensils. The only downside is you need to wear shoes when walking on the Dunes. They have a lot of sand burrs in them. Over all it was a good house at a good price. We will be returning.

Great house, perfect area.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time on Dauphin Island. This was our third stay on the island in 10 months and we picked the perfect house for the hot weather. The trees provided much needed shade, the location was perfect... Even the fox was a fun surprise. Not to mention the comfortable beds. We will be coming back soon!

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

Sunset Dunes was perfect for us and our pups. It was one level, quiet, and a quick drive to the beach at the country club. Although the fence didnt have gates, we brought baby gates and filled in the two openings. We never left our pups out alone, but felt secure letting them explore the backyard while we were outside too. The house and setting made this the most relaxing vacation we've had in years.
