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.

Beautiful place to relax
Sound Retreat was the perfect place to spend some time relaxing with my family. The house has everything you could wish for to ensure your stay is comfortable. The beds are extreamly comfortable, and the rain shower in the master is incredible. So much so that everyone uses it after our days at the beach. The house is in a perfect position for days on the sandy shores of the Gulf of Mexico. (We drove all our stuff over in the car, unpacked and took car back to the house...it’s only a short walk back). Evenings we strolled the bay side beaches and looked at the amass of shells and hermit crabs.
I could not recommend Sound Retreat highly enough. We took advantage of the bicycles, and enjoyed coffee and beverages on the two porches. (Bring your ground coffee to make use of the coffee maker). Patricia was very prompt with any queries we had, and her care for this property clearly shows.
Thank you for your kind words. We are so happy you enjoyed your stay at our house and on Dauphin Island it is a special place. We hope you have a chance to return again soon!
Great time at a great house moments away from the beach
We had a great stay at the sound retreat! Perfect location, lots of space and very chill vibes! We’re already planning on coming back next summer, hopefully for a longer stay!
Thank you glad you enjoyed Sound Retreat! Dauphin Island is a quiet relaxing place, we would love to have you back again.
My spouse went to Dauphin Island for our anniversary and we was not disappointed. Patricia made our experience wonderful with her lovely-tidey home that was very welcoming. The house is all that is described and so much more. Location was great, loved crabbing out the back door-plus!!! Patricia has been very prompt to reply from day one, thanks Patricia for allowing us to stay at your home.
Loved having shells on one beach and nice sand on the other! Beds were very comfortable also. My daughter especially enjoyed the neighbor’s cat coming for a visit.
Great location. Kids caught fish right off the dock!
Great house. We had the 3 of us plus my extended family visited multiple times. Plenty of room for eveyone. 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. 🤓👍
A true retreat
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.
Bellingrath Gardens, MS casinos, Gulf Shores outlet malls, lending library on island, Fort Gaines and Dauphin Island Estuarium.
