About Patricia Houston

We love Dauphin Island, it is quiet and peaceful. Great place for kids and families. My husband grew up in Mobile. I grew up in Baldwin County. We live in Mobile. We have been married for 25 years and have two children. We have been bringing our kids to DI all their lives and love it. We are about to be empty nesters! So we wanted something that we could enjoy with our children and their future families. Sound Retreat is a great location.

Patricia Houston purchased this House in 2014

Why Patricia Houston chose Silver Cay

We have been going to Dauphin Island swimming and fishing for 30 years. We had begun looking for houses to purchase last year and were waiting for the perfect place. We found it on Sandpiper. It was a fixer upper which we love. My husband is a great handy man! He can fix almost anything! My daughter, son, and I enjoyed painting , redoing the interior, and making it our own. It was a family affair! We are glad to share our home with other families to create special memories!

What makes this House unique

Great spot for getting to beaches or just viewing the beach. It is quiet and peaceful. The front porch is cool and has great sunset views. The back porch is great for sunning and watching stars at night. The stars and meteor showers are spectacular! Under house is always very cool with wonderful breezes great place to take a nap! Dock is great for catching crabs and fishing.

The master bath shower head was the best "rain" shower head I've ever experienced. My only suggestion is to please get a decent kitchen Knives for our next visit. πŸ€“πŸ‘

                                                                  A true retreat

                                                                  Laura B.

                                                                  The house was very clean and well equipped. Plenty of room to stretch out and relax. The area was very quite. This is a hidden gem on the island. The kayak and paddle board added to the amazing stay.

                                                                  We enjoyed our stay, just too brief. Staying on the canal was a plus for me. Accommodations good.

                                                                  Miriam C.

                                                                  We enjoyed our stay on Dauphin Island.

                                                                  Delicia M.

                                                                  Over all the house was nice. Most of our day was spent at the beach. Our boys enjoyed fishing in the canal, riding the bikes and using kayak we also enjoyed sitting on the decks in the morning & evenings. I think the house could use a few updated upgrades such the TVs, washer and dryer, deck furniture, a private shower beneath the house to REALLY wash the sand off & also a screen door on the back sliding glass door. Although we didn't receive our deposit back because of their plumbing issues our trip was pleasant & relaxing.

                                                                  Awesome! Very quiet and peaceful. Great getaway.

                                                                  My kids loved fishing and crabbing in the canal, paddleboarding and kayaking and they came with the house! The house was clean and very spacious. I particuly loved the breeze off the Bay and relaxing on the deck. The house is located in a very quiet calm spot on the island so we could really relax. The beach at the bay was like a private beach and the actual Beach down the road had great waves! Underneath the house where the swing is was a perfect place to watch the children play while sitting in the shade with your feet in the sand <3 We will rent again!
