About John Reeves

My wife and myself have two daughters. My oldest graduated from Samford and got her Masters from Auburn. The youngest just graduated from Auburn.

John Reeves purchased this house in 2000

Why John Reeves chose Dauphin Island

Cargo lift just installed. I enjoy the three levels the house offers. Large decks front and rear so there is always breeze in your you like. Three separate central air and heat units so everyone gets their 'way'. Golf Cart. Top of the line mattresses give you a great nights sleep. Fantastic flat screen TV with impeccable clarity. Top quality components throughout the home - we built it to retire in and we took it to another level. Located at the end of the cul-de-sac it offers a very peaceful existence. Great view of the water and Lighthouse. I angled the house to be a direct view. Lots to love about the place!

What makes this house unique

Great House located in a gated subdivison with pool, tennis court, playground and white sandy beaches. Saltwater pool has restrooms and showers. Boardwalk takes you to the shoreline.

Custom built home with lots of features. Even has RV hookups - sewer and power.

I own a Condo next door for 'OVERFLOW" - if needed.

Everyone has their own space and won't feel crowded.

Good fit and layout for our family. Good location. Nice shady decks.

  • 4 of 5

We liked the gated community, beach was great and the House accommodated our family very well. For a family that really cooks, the kitchen was a little small. We could not get all of us around the dining table comfortably. I just think if it sleeps ten you should be able to seat ten. Living room needs more seating as well. Overall it was a good experience

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We were on the island for a family reunion and the "big house" became the gathering place for our 23 member clan (10 stayed here; the others were at three condos next door). The place has bikes, kayaks, a green egg grill; shell nets, plenty of deck chairs, a basics-equipped kitchen and a golf cart. John was responsive to all our inquiries and requests (we're a read-at-night family; I requested night table lamps and they were there that afternoon!). The beach is right in front and the kids were in the water all day.

We voted unanimously to come back in 2020.

Amazing home!! Will definitely return next year!!

  • 5 of 5

This house is beautiful inside and outside!! Very clean when we arrived!! Spacious rooms enough to accommodate the whole family!! They had bicycles, golf cart, tennis rackets and everything you could think of!! By far my favorite vacation location to date!! Gated community full of great friendly folks!! The kids went from the ocean, to the pool, the tennis court and rode bicycles all day and night!! All around fun for every age!! Nothing like waking up having a cup of coffee and watching the waves crash in from the back porch!! Oh and the beach is pet friendly which is awesome!!

Extended family getaway

  • 5 of 5

The house is amazingly well equipped, and it was very clean when we arrived. We were eight, including my wife and three kids, my parents, and my mother-in-law, and we had room to spare. The entire trip was absolutely perfect. Mr. Reeves was courteous and helpful at all times, and my damage deposit refund was prompt. I travel a good deal for my business, and I am accustomed to being let down by hotels that looked a lot better online than in real life.

The opposite was the case with this house. I was pleasantly surprised to find the house and the gated community well beyond our expecations. We will definitely be back, hopefully soon. Thank you for a great vacation.
