Sit back relax and enjoy the beautiful sunsets and breathtaking views of Little Dauphin Island from the covered back porch.

You can bring your Kayaks and launch from back. Also plenty of room for the boat. There is a public boat launch closeby at Estuarium. You can watch the boats sail past,the dolphins swim, the fish jump and the pelicans fly by or walk to the water with your fishing rod and catch the big one!!!


March through May is the spring neo-tropical migration where birds from Central and South America stop over for a rest on thier long journey. As many as 324 species have been seen on the island.

Its the perfect place for bird watching. Dauphin Island won Americas birdiest city award in the small coastal city category 2006!!! Guess what Dauphin Island won 2007 also !!!Our home is on the same street as the Shell Mound Park and Goat Tree Reserve. so walk from your home to bird watch .

This beautifully-decorated three bedroom, two bath home sleeps a maximum of six. It includes one king, one queen, and two twins.The open floor plan allows you to prepare your meals in the well equipped kitchen while watching the kids play air hockey or pool!! (The table flips for either pool or air hockey ).

We have a video library for those rainy days also books for the avid reader. my mom loves to sit on the deck and read.The golf course is close by with beautiful ocean views. One of our favorite things to do is go to Skinners and pick up some fresh shrimp for dinner. You cant beat the freshness !!!

Bring your bikes its a short ride to the beautiful white sandy beaches.If you have never experienced the beauty of the gulf coast . now is the time. You can load up the car for a 2 minute drive to the pier and beach. We are one block from Bienville Blvd.Not far from the Ship and Shore(the local grocery/hardware store), Grab the flashlight stay until dusk and go crabbing.

Kids love the excitement of crab catching!!Our son spent hours catching crabs in the back yard !! He actually caught 20 blue crabs which we boiled and ate!! Come enjoy the quiet island living and great family fun.We are on a quiet street with lots of singing birds...

You can now rent kayaks delivered to the house and launch right from the backyard.

About Maureen Schlegel

Kurt and Maureen

WE love the quiet island life !!!!

Maureen Schlegel purchased this house in 2005

Why Maureen Schlegel chose Dauphin Island

My best friend and her husband bought a condo here and we came to visit from San Diego Ca.We fell in love with this quiet little island.There are no crowds no matter when you are here if we were on the beaches in San diego it would be difficult with our 7 yr old because of the amount of people ( wall to wall) and the partying.Plus the water is so warm and calm!! Dauphin Island is like going back in time!! no crowds beautiful white sand beaches!! GREAT FOR FAMILIES!!

What makes this house unique

We enjoy the beautiful water views and the constant parade of boats.The neighborhood is quiet with lots of birds and close to the major attractions. The birding attractions are on our street!! Which I didn't know untill after we bought it!!We are a short bike ride to Fort Gaines, the Estuarium, We love the air hockey and pool tablmme and the beachy decor!!!It Just feels like home when we come over the Dauphin Island Bridge.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have felt very comfortable in your beach house.We have really enjoyed the pool/airhockey table!We love the ease of the kitchenand livingroom area. Everything was very comfortable and homey.We hope to be back!!

Very Relaxing Trip!

  • 5 of 5

We have nothing but positive things to say about this property. It was very comfortable and met our needs in every way. My boys old and young all enjoyed playing pool on downtime from beach and sightseeing. Maureen was reachable when needed and she was very accommodating. We left a little early due to fear of hurricane, but it was our choice. If we ever travel that way again, we hope to stay at Baywatch again.

Great Winter Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent four days on the Island. Bay Watch was a very comfortable retreat from the Chicago cold with all the comforts of home. The new grill on the porch was put to good use with some terrific steak and seafood from The Common Loon and Skinners.Bicycling around the island is a joy, but be sure to bring bug spray for the noseeums if you visit in March! We will be back.

Enjoyed our stay, however, washing machine was broken and we could not wash anything.

  • 4 of 5

Was very relaxing other than the fact we had no washing machine and had to wait on a repairman to check the machine and still could not repair it. Wasted one whole day of vacation! The owner did give us a $200 refund on our rental.

Owner's Response: The washing machine did break. It was only 2 years old. I offered to have my cleaning lady let the repair man in but they insisted on staying. I gave them a very generous refund for not having a machine and the inconvenience.

relaxing and peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 (plus our dog) just enjoyed 9 nights at Bay Watch. From the moment we arrived, all our stresses from the long drive quickly disappeared. The house is a lovely decorated 3 bedroom, 2 bath house with a fully stocked kitchen. It was incredibly clean upon arrival, and we felt completely welcomed. It truly felt like home. Our children (as well as the adults) loved playing pool and air hockey so much that now we might have to get one for our house in the near future. The deck, equipped with lots of comfortable patio furniture, was perfect for watching sunrises, sunsets, or enjoying the afternoon breeze. One day we had kayaks delivered to the boat launch right behind the house and kayaked from our own backyard. We also really enjoyed cooking shrimp and red snapper from Skinners market in the kitchen. The owner had everything we needed and some to cook a nice dinner. Thank you for the lovely stay at Bay Watch! Stoll Family from Missouri
