Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Silver Cay, Dauphin Island, AL, USA:
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!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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.
