Year Purchased: 2005
About: We have enjoyed a wonderful life travelling ALL 50 States, most of the Canadian Provinces, and several Central and South American countries. Of all the places we have been, we love our home in Georgia, which is in the woods on a private lake. BUT we have also enjoyed the beaches/coastline whenever we could. Growing up in Washington State, many times we went to the cold, but beautiful, Pacific Beaches. Now we enjoy visiting the warm, Gulf 'coast' beaches, and what better way then on an Island. We were introduced to island rentals years ago, and ultimately buying a second home near a beach led us to Dauphin Island with both beaches and many activities while here. We have been able to share it with ourselves and others for the last 9 years and wish to do so again via this rental venue. We hope, whoever you are, that you will enjoy all that this home and Dauphin Island have to offer, as we have done.
Why Silver Cay, Dauphin Island, AL, USA:
When we decided on Dauphin Island we looked at many homes that were available at the time. (Our sales agent was very patient.) We ended up with this one because of the Great Room entrance, the ability to have camaraderie with everyone, whether in the kitchen, living room, dining room, or reading area, as all of this was so open and spacious. The bedrooms are located in the 'back' of the house, so one can have 'Peace At The Beach' when activities settle down for the night. However, before you go to bed, we hope you have sat on the front porch to enjoy the water views and the beautiful Dauphin Island sunset. Another thing that I really enjoy is getting up in the middle of the night and going out on the porch in the quiet, light breeze to view the startling bright moonlight when there is a full moon. I have taken many close-up pictures of it over the years that we have been coming here.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Dauphin Island is not just an Island, but it is a town of ~1,300 year-round residents plus another 2,000 'part-time' residents, like ourselves, who come here on a regular basis. Dauphin Island has all of the basic services, activities, and points of interest as any other city. If that is not sufficient, then Mobile is less than an hour away with all of the 'big city' services you could want, including Tillman's Corner, which is on the north end of the Dauphin Island Parkway (Highway 193). However, to us the main emphasis for this location is in the name that we gave it: 'Peace At The Beach', which is what it represents to us and for you the visitor to the island. We hope that you would find the same Peace and Happiness that we have enjoyed coming here. Another important aspect of Dauphin Island is for the Christian traveler. Dauphin Island has a variety of churches: Baptist, Methodist, Episcopal, and Catholic. We have found Dauphin Island Baptist Church to be a welcoming and scripturally sound church with a well-spoken Minister and his young family who live on the island nearby.
