Escape to Dauphin Island! This paradise features beautiful beaches, a historic civil war fort, a public aquarium, a golf course along the Gulf of Mexico, fresh seafood, fishing charters, a bike trail and so much more! Visit Fort Gaines, a historic Civil War fort. Watch for birds in the backyard or at the Audubon Bird Sanctuary. Have delicious cinnamon rolls at the Lighthouse Bakery, and play golf with a view at the Isle Dauphin Golf Course. The white sand beaches are beautiful, and you can also charter a fishing boat to explore the gulf waters, or rent a kayak and explore on your own! Fresh seafood is everywhere. Catch your own or buy some 'right off the boat' at the local seafood shops.
Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: We are Steve and Julie Kenney. We are homebuilders (need a beach home, anyone?) and have three sons. We love Dauphin Island and all there is to do, and the time we spend together, just hanging out at our Dauphin Island homes with friends. Our boys are active in Boy Scouts (our oldest, now in college is an Eagle Scout!), and we love to travel and stay in vacation homes when we do!
Why the Owner Chose Dauphin Island, AL, USA:
We purchased the property this home is built on in 2004, the day before Hurricane Ivan flooded the 50 year old home that sat (flat on the ground). We loved this property because of its unique setting on the island - a large, grassy, beautiful location along Salt Creek - just a minute from the beach!
