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 Dauphin Island

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.

Great Place for Family Fun!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Beautiful location and just a short walk from the beach!

  • 4 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Sound Retreat! The house was beautiful and the location was great! There was a quiet beach a short walk from the house that was excellent for she'll hunting! While we were staying there we went for a walk on the beach one morning and a beautiful crane flew right up to the beach just a few yards from us and proceeded to walk within 5 feet of us and even posed for pictures. He was simply beautiful! Such an amazing experience! We saw lots of rays, crabs, and mullet fish, and even a very small shark! It was a wonderful vacation, only wish we could have stayed longer!

The property was very nice but...

  • 1 of 5

The property itself was very nice. Fully stocked kitchen. Plenty of towels. The knifes were dull and the iron had something on it that ruined my husbands shorts.

The reason they only got one star is we were blamed for damages that were not our responsibility. They refused to return our deposit because they claimed we left the hot water running in the kitchen and the sink overflowed and ruined the wood floors. We did NOT leave the water running. We walked through the entire house to make sure everything was in order.

Owner's Response: These renters left on Thursday at 10am my husband went down on Friday at. 8 am to check on house before he went to work and found HOT water running in sink! And kitchen flooded with water! Ruined wood floor, subfloor and insulation layer was soaked with water. Sink was draining but slower than water flow. I'm sorry these renters think they didn't do this but obviously they did! No one else could have. Sometimes people make mistakes. I'm sure this was nothing they meant to do. But it happened!
