Property description

Treat yourself to a get-away to the beach at this cottage by the sea!

Car: Recommended

*There is a MARINE LIFE MUSEEUM that has a little movie, interactive displays, and a gift shop. Great for all including children.

*There is a BIRD SANCTUARY with a small lake. The trail through the bird sanctuary is a boardwalk and leads to the lake. A nice walk or outing for everyone.

*There are WALKING TRAILS throughout the woods that lead to the beach at the Bird Sanctuary.

*There is a Fort with a museum (FORT GAINES). This is a great site to see even if you just visit the outside. It has a great view of the historic LIGHTHOUSE.

*Visit the SEA LAB where students from all over the world study Marine Biology.

*There are PARKS for the children.

*There is a COUNTRY CLUB where you can eat, play GOLF, rent JET SKIS, PLAY TENNIS, or enjoy a public SWIMING POOL right on the beach.

*Going to the BAKERY is an experience in itself. The menu is delightful and the atmosphere is so cozy and sweet. Dine in or take out.

*You can FISH from the many fishing piers on the island, charter a boat, or fish right from the beach steps away from 'Morning Glory.' (fishing license required) Inquire at Ship n Shore, and they will direct you.

*Suggestion: Rent BIKES and travel the whole island! The bike rental offers kiddie carts that attach onto the bikes so that your little ones or pets can travel with you. The bike path is conveniently accessible at the driveway at Morning Glory.

*Suggestion: Rent KAYAKS! They deliver right to the beach for you!

*Great PIZZA and SNOWBALLS at the Rainbow!

*Chevron offers great hot food on the go! Breakfast, Lunch, and Pizza.

*Great hamburgers at the 'Pink Pig.'

*Great Breakfast and Lunch with an incredible view at 'Pirate's Pleasure.'

*A fun restaurant with a view is the 'Islander.'


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1987

About the owner: This beach cottage we call 'Morning Glory' has been in our family for about 30 years! It has been a place for us as well as many other families to make special and lasting memories while building strong relationships. For others, it has been an amazing refuge for a much needed get-away. Our mother bought this house after a terrible hurricane and transformed it into a 'home away from home' for her family and for those who just needed a place to go! We sincerely hope and pray that you will have the 'best of the best' times at the Morning Glory!

Why the Owner Chose Dauphin Island, AL, USA:
We encourage you to choose this property because it is prepared just for you with the greatest of love for the island, and a heartfelt desire for you to enjoy!
