About Joseph Baldwin

I was born and raised in Mobile, Alabama. I have been vacationing with my family on Dauphin Island since I was 5 years old. I currently live in Theodore, Alabama, about a 30 minute drive from DI. I have been a nurse for the last 37 years and an ultrasononographer for the last 14 years.

Joseph Baldwin purchased this cottage in 1955

Why Joseph Baldwin chose Alabama

This house has been in our family since about 1955. It was built by my grandmother on 2 lots. The lots were purchased before the bridge was built and the house was built shortly after that. We have spent the last 1 1/2 years renovating it. We have put lots of tender loving care into its' revival and we love it.

What makes this cottage unique

This pretty little cottage is in a prime location for birdwatching. It is close to the center of town and a very cheerful home away from home. The house is at ground level and there are no steps to climb.

Quiet and relaxing

The house was perfect for our needs, it was clean and well stocked. The owners were super kind and easy to work with. We loved being close to a few of the island's parks.

Perfect little retreat

  • 5 of 5

This has to be the most comfortable place I have ever stayed in. The cottage is just right for a small party looking for a quiet retreat. It is well located, well stocked, and lovely to look at. I hated to leave! The owners are easy to deal with and very accommodating. I will definitely be back!

A charmer in every way!

  • 5 of 5

Dauphin Island is a quaint, friendly, simple beach life kind of town. There are small parks with walking & biking trails all around & practically no traffic. The beach was calm, clean & pet friendly & just a very short drive from the cottage. The Birders Cottage is a wonderfully cute & comfortable little charmer with everything you need or want. We highly recommend spending as much time there as possible!

Just right!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at Birder's Cottage twice now and we're already looking forward to our next trip. The owners are so welcoming and have taken great care to make sure the cottage feels like home. The kitchen is fully stocked, the beds are comfortable and the whole house is as clean as a whistle. Dauphin Island is a treasure and this little cottage makes it easy to relax and take in all the island has to offer.

Comfortable, clean & accommodating

  • 5 of 5

The Birders Cottage went above my expectations. The property was so comfortable for my family of 4. The beds were extremely comfortable, furniture and layout were perfect.

Birders Cottage was the cleanest place we have ever stayed in.

The cottage had a few extras that we had forgotten, which really made us feel accommodated. Full kitchen, deck and grill and laundry.

The home is in the perfect location as well.

My family & I are already planning to return.
