Our home is a comfortable and roomy 5 bedroom, 5 bath ocean front property with no obstructed views and literally within a few feet of the Gulf of Mexico. Sunrises and sunsets are absolutely amazing to watch from the porch and this island is truly the Gulf’s best kept secret. It is decorated in Mediterranean, bright and cheerful with a comfortable family friendly decor. The house sleeps 12 - two king size bedrooms, two queen size bedrooms, and 2 queen beds in the 5th bedroom. An extra large open floor plan with living room, 8 person dining table, 6 person bar and modern kitchen w/ granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances provide ample space for everyone to spread out and relax. You can rent bikes, kayaks and other island toys and the very well maintained bike trail runs from the west to the east end of the island. The island is known for it's great fishing! Skinner's, local fisherman, brings in fresh shrimp and the catch of the day and is one of our favorite places!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: We are empty nesters living in North Alabama and have recently decided it's now time to slow down and enjoy the pleasures life has to offer. Every weekend we can, we load up as many of our pups as possible and head down to the beach for some fun and relaxation.

Why the Owner Chose Dauphin Island, AL, USA:
After visiting Dauphin Island with friends who own a vacation home on the island, we fell in love with the quiet, laid back atmosphere and decided to buy a place of our own! This is truly paradise for us! This beach is very low key and the locals are very friendly - just the way we like it. There are not a lot of restaurants but there is a great bakery and a couple of good seafood hotspots. It is truly the place to go to unwind and spend quality time with family and friends. We find ourselves retreating more and more often to the ISLAND!!!!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
There are so many reasons we fell in love w/ this house - it has windows across the front that provide plenty of light and a terrific view of the water. After long walks and beach combing on the west end; we love sitting outside with a glass of wine in the evenings watching the sunset and listening to the waves crashing on the beach. Long bike rides or just being lazy curled up on the deck with a good book makes for the perfect beach day. This is truly the most amazing thing we have marked off on our 'bucket list' and we totally love the lack of high traffic and crowds you have at most beaches. It's truly magnificent! If you like a little more excitement and adventure on your vacations, you can drive onto the ferry at the east end and it'll take you across to the Gulf Shores area for entertainment and more dining choices!
