Why Deanna Tagert chose Silver Cay

We chose to purchase this property when our grandchildren were born. Since its purchase, it has been used for family gatherings and a place to for Nonnie and I to leave the worries of the world behind us and spend time riding bikes, fishing, walking the beach, etc. with our family. the grandchildren are grown now and we thought others might enjoy doing the same.

What makes this house unique

The relative safety of the protected waters and the shallow depth directly in front of the house helped us choose the property. Perfect for family.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for allowing us to stay at your beach house. This was our second time and we love it. Our kids have had the best time swimming, looking for crabs, and enjoying the view.

Perfect home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Very accommodating. It may not be luxurious but for a blended family of 7 it worked out great! Having a washer and dryer let us unpack right into our closets. It was a 5 min walk to the gulf and we could fish the calm waters of the Mississippi Sound behind the house. Many hermit crabs live in the sea wall for the kids to investigate. Dauphin Island is the undeveloped paradise we were looking for. From Ft Gaines to the Sea Lab and to The USS Alabama. I don't think we had a dull day and were never rushed because it was all so close.

Always excellent!

  • 5 of 5

I've been visiting DI for several years and have stayed in Nonnie's multiple times. It always feels like a home away from home. It's clean and comfortable. The bay access is second to none. I love this place and will always try to book here first.

Awesome- highly recommended!!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time in Dauphin Island, over the thanksgiving holiday. The owners were extremely accommodating, very helpful, and that price can't be beat! The kids caught jellyfish and hermit crabs right from the little beach in the backyard. The neighbors were so friendly, and the house was absolutely perfect for us. If you're looking for luxury, look somewhere else, but if you're looking for a spacious, clean, and comfortable home with THE BEST views on the island this is where you want to be. We would definitely stay here again!

We truly enjoyed our stay! We like how the island in unincorporated.

We spent a lot of time fishing in the Mississippi Sound- caught catfish & sting ray!! We also spent a few hours each day at the West End Beach- absolutely beautiful :) Other things we did include- A walk through the Bird Sanctuary, Aquarium and Ft. Gaines. We found a couple of great places to eat seafood. We are already talking about what we will do when we come back...thanks for sharing your home with us!

Non-commercialized, family oriented vacation destination. The Island offers a variety of stores and restaurants. Waterville USA and Fort Morgan is a ferry ride away for a great day trip. Bring your bikes and discover the island on the island's biking trails that run the length of the island. Attractions on the island include the Estuarium at the Dauphin Island Sea Lab, historical Ft. Gaines, the Indian mounds, Alabama Coastal Birding Trail and Bird Sanctuary sites. Come fish on the beach or the fishing pier, charter a deep sea excursion or a boat to sight see.
