Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)
This house features wrap-around decks on 3 sides to fully enjoy the great views of both the Gulf of Mexico and Mobile Bay.
The Gulf-facing side has a large deck with a great picnic area for those beach-side lunches. It also has many deck chairs and beach chairs to watch the shrimp boats go by, with dolphins and other wildlife in their wake.
The Master Bedroom has a Gulf-view balcony, its own huge, private bathroom, and a King-size Luxury Memory-Cell Foam bed. Bedroom #2 views the Gulf and the Bay and has a brand-new Queen Memory-Foam bed . . . Bedroom #3 views the Bay and has a set of bunkbeds and also an additional Full-size bed.
Dauphin Island is a beautiful barrier island that is largely undeveloped. You won't find any high-rise condos or crowds . . . It's a great place to 'get away' and swim, fish, shell, walk the beach, ride bikes, or just read a book or work on your tan.
This house was built new in 2006, and is truly a beachfront cottage with all the amenities of home that we know you and your family will enjoy!

About the owner: Hi! We're David and Nancy, and we live in Daphne, AL with our two school-age kids, so we have been making this house available to guests to enjoy as well. We designed and built this beach house after our original house was destroyed by Katrina, and put a lot of time and thought into how to do it right. The end result is a 'Key West'-style cottage, but with all the amenities of home.
Why the Owner Chose Dauphin Island, AL, USA:
We have lived in various Gulf of Mexico beach towns since 1990, and fell in love with Dauphin Island's quiet, rustic charm. There are very few places left where you can drive down a two-lane road along the beach, and see what the towns along the Gulf were like in the days before high-rise condos became the norm. Most of the vacation homes on Dauphin Island are single-family beach houses sitting right on the beach. No traffic, no crowds, just a quiet barrier island to enjoy beach combing, fishing, shelling, kayaking, kite-flying, grilling dinner on the deck, and star gazing at night.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
There is nothing like staying right on the beach. Being able to simply walk down the steps and be on the beach is wonderful. Sitting on the deck reading a book while listening to the waves, playing on the beach with the kids and then coming inside for lunch, are great memories, as are chasing crabs at night on the beach with a flashlight, or sitting on the deck and marveling at the beautiful night sky and millions of stars!
