I have always loved the beach and sun. I enjoy the serenity and peacefulness that our vacation home on the bay provides. I hope that when you visit 'SOL-MATE' on Dauphin Island that you enjoy it as much as i do!

Lisa and Scott Marlowe purchased this house in 2013

Sunsets, sunsets, sunsets.....My husband and I looked for quite a while for the perfect little vacation home. You can change the carpet or paint the walls but you can't change the views that a home offers. 'SOL-MATE' provides an almost endless view of the sun setting over the sound in the afternoons.

'SOL-MATE' just feels right. There are bigger homes on the Island and nicer homes on the Island but, I don't think that I would trade Sol-Mate for any of them. SOL-MATE doesn't feel like it was furnished from the 'vacation house superstore' It has character and history. SOL-MATE has an authentic value to it that draws you in. It often seems that the house was built just so I could have a glass of wine and watch the sun drop into the bay. With so many houses just 'stuck' into the sand everywhere, SOL-MATE seems to belong where it is, as it is.

TOES IN THE SAND

  • 4 of 5
Just returned from a week at the beach, and Sol Mate was our home away from home. The owners thought of every detail from beach toys to a gas grill to make sure our stay was comfortable. The kitchen is well stocked for cooking, plenty of dishes, glasses, etc. I fell in love with the outdoor shower!! What a convenience, especially with 3 kids! Thanks, Scott! We had a lovely time!!!

FEBRUARY VACATION VISITING OUR CHILDREN.

  • 4 of 5
We found this home to be comfortable and inviting. The location worked well for us and while we were disappointed that the weather was not warmer it didn't stop us from enjoying our stay on the island.

Owner's Response: Thank you! We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay! We were hoping that the island was immune to the effects of the winter that we have all witnessed this year. But it seems that even the little paradise of Dauphin Island could not escape this winter's grip! Thank you so much for visiting. We really hope to see you back!! (Maybe in the spring or summer?) (:

LITTLE PIECE OF HEAVEN

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our experience!! Morning coffee sitting on the deck watching the dolphins play and hunt. The sunsets while sipping a glass of wine. The hammock under the house....it was a little piece of heaven. Thank you Scott for helping to make our experience wonderful. We arrived and it was just as if we were walking into our own home. Everything we needed was there. The fishing was great, the neighbors helpful. Mere words are difficult express the lovely time we spent in your home. Thank you again for allowing us to share this/

Owner's Response: We are so happy that you and your family enjoyed your stay at Sol-Mate. We have tried to make it a "home away from home" for everyone who comes to visit. It sounds like you enjoyed the same things that we love about Sol-Mate and the island life (A glass of wine does go well with those gorgeous sunsets) Thank you so much for your lovely comments. We appreciate your visit and hope to see you again at Sol-Mate!
