About Sally Teague

Why Sally Teague chose Alabama

This house and this location is special to our family. We have a large family and this house has been the center of many family gatherings, celebrations, and holidays. It's location on the Sound has always offered us the peaceful sanctuary just when we've needed it.

What makes this house unique

Very clean, open and airy cottage with stunning view of both the sound and the gulf. The house sits on the Mississippi Sound and is right across the street from the Gulf of Mexico. In the cold months, enjoy sitting by the warm fire. Awesome wade fishing and perfect beachcombing and swimming. This is the absolute best place to watch a sunset on Dauphin Island.

Girls vacation 2017 happy and salty

  • 4 of 5

Great location! Loved having a screened in porch! Bird watching with a cup of coffee in a comfy chair, doesn't get any better than that. Beach was quiet and clean. My only complaint which isn't really a complaint is two things. White couches that the owner stressed that you keep clean but when we got there one arm of the couch looked like someone really enjoyed a bag of cheetoos! I am OCD so this stressed me out, a candle on the coffee was broken and there was some crayon markings on the deck, nose prints (kids) on the mirror above the couch and on the french doors. ( I know that sounds like more than two things but its just about house keeping so # 2 in shower head in master bath should be a hand held since the shower in so small. Other then that I would stay here again and again! Did not want to leave!

Soundview on Dauphin Island

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home! Everything in the listing was exactly as I found it. It is obvious a home that is loved by owners. Very relaxing with beautiful beaches behind the house and the public beach just a few short steps down the road. For the ladies who like to shop, must stop by "Happy Octopus" on the island - wonderful selection in such a small space. Must take a trip on the ferry to Ft Morgan/Gulf Shores up to Foley to the "Tin Top" restaurant - 5 stars for excellent seafood and selection!!! Well worth the drive. This was the best trip and best beach home for a relaxing re-energizing time. Sally, owner, is the best to work with. Thank you much Sally and family!!

Restful retreat

  • 5 of 5

Just spent a week at this lovely location with my best friends. The cottage was very clean and well kept. Kitchen was the best stocked rental I have had the privilege of staying in. The views were wonderful. I really enjoyed having the screened in porch with view of the sound. Would have enjoyed having a table on the porch so we could have had meals out there. There no longer is access to the gulf across the road due to new housing construction. However, it is an easy walk/drive to public beach and the sound beach in front of house is nice and easy access. We would have appreciated having chairs that we could use at beach as we had traveled over 1,000 miles and had no space to bring our own chairs. The smaller of the three bedrooms is very small and wasn't conducive to two female adults for a week. This bedroom would work nicely for two children or one adult.

All that being said - I would recommend this cottage to all my friends and family and would stay there again in a heart beat! It is really wonderful - location, location, location!!!!!!! Clean, clean, clean!!!! Well maintained!!!!!!
