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
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!
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.
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 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.
property was better than expected.fishing out the back door was great.the island was laid back compared to gulf shores and orange beach.i will stay again but this time I won't leave the island for the whole week.some of the shops were not open at the first of the week,also the west beach is not open until Thursday.
Nice little get-a-way that's reasonably priced. Comfortable beds. Nice porches with good views.
Sound Retreat was amazing. The short walk to two beaches was perfect for our family of 5. The canal was a special bonus and we enjoyed fishing and crabbing. The house was clean, well stocked and adorable. We had such an amazing time and we will be back! Everything was perfect! Thanks so much for everything, and we look forward to renting again.
The Sound Retreat was the perfect place to get away from the crowds and enjoy a weekend at the beach. We had a wonderful stay and will be back! The house was exactly as described, the beach access was extremely convenient, and the island was very quiet. Dauphin Island is very low key and there is not a lot going on there which is exactly why we chose it. I highly recommend this rental.
