KIDS LOVE OUR HOME FROM CRABBING AND FISHING IN THE BACKYARD TO THE AIR HOCKEY TABLE READ ALL OUR GREAT COMMENTS !!! MAXIMUM OF 6 people

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!!!

FOR THE BIRDERS IT'S LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION !!!

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 Alabama

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!!

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.

Nice place

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the lovely home for New Years. It was perfect. Large open concept in the kitchen/ living room. Perfect for family fun. Enjoyed the view from the back deck and living room. We can not wait to rent again during the spring or summer. The owner was very helpful with our NYE plans. What a gem.

Bay Watch Weekend

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I (and our animals) greatly enjoyed our stay at Bay Watch. I grew up in Mobile and my grandparents live on Mobile Bay so we wanted this to be a trip home for me to visit my family that could also be a vacation. I also wanted my husband to experience the bay area and island as I did growing up and this definitely gave us that experience. The house is very welcoming and made us feel right at home as soon as we walked in the door. I drank my coffee on the porch every morning and miss it already. We LOVED the pool table and played everyday with my family. The house contained everything we needed for our stay. There were many times where I got a little worried because I forgot something and then found it conveniently in a drawer or cabinet 2 seconds later (i.e. extension cord, can opener, coffee filters, etc.). You can fish from the front yard which we did and easily launch a kayak there as well. My husband and I loved our hike at the Audubon Bird Sanctuary and our pizza and snow cone lunch at Island Rainbow. We also wish we had gotten even more pastries from Lighthouse Bakery. The rest of our trip we ate mostly seafood. If you don't have a way to catch it yourself (which we did since family was nearby with a shrimp boat and we brought our own fishing reels), you can drive to Skinner's right down the road. Based on another review I read before leaving, we did bring a TV from home since it is football season and we'd have family over to watch. It is not even a complaint, but if a bigger, high quality TV is important to you, the tv's here are a little outdated and on the smaller side, but they didn't bother me at all while it was just me and we had plenty of other things to do anyway. The internet is also very good so no worries there. If you want a nice, clean, welcoming home on a great little island with nice people and a place where you can just take a deep breath and relax, then this is the place to go. We will definitely be back.

Bay View

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough about this property. Bay View has a beautiful view. Very nice for a morning cup of coffee on the deck. The master bedroom mattress was to die for. Kitchen had everything needed. Very clean, roomy and furniture was comfortable. We truly enjoyed the pool table. The only down side was the tv's. They are very outdated and it would be wonderful to have a full size tv in the living room for all to view.

Awesome Stay

  • 5 of 5

What more can we say. Bay Watch was the perfect spot for our Dauphin Island getaway. This was our first trip to the island, but it certainly will not be our last as we have fallen madly in love with everything about it.

Bay Watch was clean and well equipped with everything we needed for our stay. The house was perfectly sized, and we were given all the info we needed to find the house easily and gain entry without a problem.

The early morning sunrise is spectacular from the deck, and we were content to just hang out there when the afternoons got too hot to want to be in the blazing sun.

The house is close to all the amenities, and should you need to do a big shop while you are there as we did on our first day - the nearest Wal-Mart is only a 20 minute drive away on the outskirts of Mobile and it is a lovely drive up the coastal Dauphin Island Parkway.

All in all, we cannot recommend Bay Watch highly enough - it is the perfect spot.
