About Linda and Greg Black
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.
Linda and Greg Black purchased this House in 2014
Why Linda and Greg Black chose Dauphin Island
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!!!!
What makes this House unique
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!

Beautiful property. Great view.
I loved my stay. However I didn’t like seeing the cockroaches. It surprised me a bit because the home is immaculate. Although I guess bugs are part of that climate. Regardless this is a great location, great home. My family built great memories at Wake and See and I will be back!!!
We loved it!!!
The house is right on the beach and the sunrises/sunsets were spectacular. We highly recommend! :)
We all had a fabulous week here. I highly recommend staying here. We had 12 in our family staying here and we had plenty of room. It's was so nice having a bathroom for each bedroom. The decoration made the atmosphere! Would most definitely stay here again. You literally walk down the steps and you are on the beach. Beautiful house!
A gorgeous house on a gorgeous island.
My family and I stayed her Aug. 12-19, 2017- 10 adults and 1 child. This house was great. Clean and tidy when we arrived. A bathroom for every bedroom is an awesome perk.
The pictures do not do this house justice. It is a very spacious property. The kitchen/dining/living room is huge. All the bedrooms have ample room and well furnished. We didn't feel like there were ten of us in the house.
We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. Give it a try, you won't regret it.
Thank you for your review and we love knowing what our guests enjoy about our home and their stay. We hope to have the opportunity to have you as our guest again in the near future.
Beautiful house with lots of room!!
This is a beautiful property with the beach as your backyard. It had all the kitchen appliances you would ever need and an open floor plan with lots of dining and living room space. The bedrooms were spacious and slept 10 adults comfortably. There was plenty of room for air beds for the kids. There are other houses close but it was still like we had our own private beach and we never heard from any of the neighbors. This house was great for our family with 10 adults and 4 children. We look forward to spending another vacation on Dauphin Island in the future!
Thank you for taking the time to write a review about our home and your vacation. So glad you and your family enjoyed your stay on the Island and would love to have you back as our guests for your next Island vacation.
The perfect week!
This was our first trip to Dauphin Island and I hope it's not the last. Wake and Sea was perfect for our family. We had 3 adults and 7 kids staying all week. The 5 bedrooms are perfectly arranged and big. The kitchen had everything we needed. There was plenty of seating for eating and relaxing. We felt like we had a private beach. Even with all the properties around us rented the beach in front of the house was always just our family. It made watching the kids from the deck or while prepping meals easy. Walking up and down the beach and looking at lots of rentals before our trip I can honestly say that if you have a larger group there isn't a better property. Don't forget your bug spray- we were surprised by how persistent the mosquitos were at night!
We always appreciate our guests taking the time to write about their vacation on the Island and so glad you liked the house. We usually come down in the spring and fall so haven't experienced the mosquitos which would definately not be fun but I hear they were worse this year because of all the rain! Thanks again and hope to have you as our guests again on your next trip to the Island.
