About Lisa and Scott Marlowe

I have always loved the beach and sun. I enjoy the serenity and peacefulness that our vacation home on the bay provides. I hope that when you visit 'SOL-MATE' on Dauphin Island that you enjoy it as much as i do!

Lisa and Scott Marlowe purchased this house in 2013

Why Lisa and Scott Marlowe chose Dauphin Island

Sunsets, sunsets, sunsets.....My husband and I looked for quite a while for the perfect little vacation home. You can change the carpet or paint the walls but you can't change the views that a home offers. 'SOL-MATE' provides an almost endless view of the sun setting over the sound in the afternoons.

What makes this house unique

'SOL-MATE' just feels right. There are bigger homes on the Island and nicer homes on the Island but, I don't think that I would trade Sol-Mate for any of them. SOL-MATE doesn't feel like it was furnished from the 'vacation house superstore' It has character and history. SOL-MATE has an authentic value to it that draws you in. It often seems that the house was built just so I could have a glass of wine and watch the sun drop into the bay. With so many houses just 'stuck' into the sand everywhere, SOL-MATE seems to belong where it is, as it is.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Scott and Lisa,

Everyone had a great time! I was definitely in my happy

place! The accommodations were spot on and the view left me speechless. I

loved everything about it! We are already planning our next vacation back

to sol-mate and it can't be soon enough! Thank you for sharing your

beautiful home and making our stay memorable!

Great vacation in wonderful house!

  • 5 of 5

We had another great week at Sol-Mate with our 2 kids, ages 6 and 8. So much to do and the house was fully equipped with everything we needed to make it a holiday we won't soon forget. Thanks to Scott and Lisa Marlowe for everything!

Wonderful property!

  • 5 of 5

We immediately fell in love with this house upon arrival. The small details inside and out make it a wonderful place to relax and stay. The owners were very responsive to all our needs and responded within minutes. Overall our stay was wonderful and will look forward to returning ! Lots of properties around the island did not have as much outside equipment and detail as this one . We loved the outside grill, hammock and TV. The kids fished off the doc most days and caught lots of fish :) it was a perfect spot to launch a kayak off as well.

Wonderful place to stay. On the sound and close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the house a lot because it's set up for out door living. And it's very relaxing to look out to the sound.

It's everything and more!

  • 5 of 5

It was just as described. Beautifully and comfortably decorated. Well stocked for those items you might forget. We so enjoyed walking right out the door and down the stairs to the dock. Finding each light switch was so easy. The "everything you need to know --book" was so helpful. Y'all are very organized. We befriended a tall bird on the dock, and both days he enjoyed the small fish we caught off the dock. The outdoor grill and firepit/TV was such a nice luxury. I had forgotten my fleece blanket and when sitting on the couch I commented about that--then looked down to my surprise--there was a small basket of blankets!! Thank you!!. Also, the cable and internet were a nice bonus. Thank you so much for opening your home to us.
