About Lisa and Scott Marlowe

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

Why Lisa and Scott Marlowe chose Dauphin Island

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.

What makes this house unique

'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.

Fun vacation house

  • 4 of 5

Loved the house and location. Since it was late March, we had cool weather and rain so we didn't get a lot of beach time or warm sun, but the dock and house itself kept us entertained. If it was summer, I think all the space under the house would have been a perfect place to escape the hot sun. We had 5 people in the house and had plenty of room. The bathrooms were a bit cramped and the shower heads were pretty low for our tall crowd.

Sunsets were great. Since we were often cooking dinner at home, we often hung out on the decks and dock as the sun went down. We also made plenty of bird friends at the dock. We loved the upstairs bedroom with the private balcony but would have liked to have screens on the doors so we could get a little airflow without bugs coming in.

We rented three bikes (not easy to find bike rentals on the island in March) and used the additional two bikes provided to tour the whole island. We would have been happily entertained for a week if it had been summer. As it was, we ran out of things to do after four days and were ready to head home as planned.

Restaurants on Dauphin Island are not good.

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you enjoyed the house, but we wish you would have had warmer weather during your stay so that you could have enjoyed your experience to the fullest. Dauphin Island's charm is the relaxed atmosphere and quaint lifestyle that is so hard to find on the Gulf coast these days, but even that can be hard to enjoy during the last attempts of winter's cold interruptions. We hope that you and your family will return in warmer months and see why we love this little island so much and yearn to return as soon as we cross the bridge to return home. Thank you so much for staying at Sol-Mate. We really appreciate that you chose Sol-Mate for your vacation home. Have a great summer!

AMAZING!!!

  • 5 of 5

Sol-Mate made our weekend perfect! The house is beautiful and equipped with everything we needed and more. The view is incredible. We enjoyed the home so much that we forgot to go to the beach as much as we thought we would. The beach was quiet and gorgeous, and very close to the house. Loved the decor. The beds are comfortable as well which was a relief. The owners are fantastic. They have thought of everything. We enjoyed staying at the house and cooking dinner while viewing the amazing sunset. We will be going back to Sol-Mate every chance we get. Thank you so much for opening your home to us. We can't say enough!

We are working hard to add new amenities to Sol-Mate for our guests and we hope that you return soon to experience the 'cooking deck' and the 'game deck'. Thanks again, Lorie. Hope you have a great summer!

Spring Holiday

  • 4 of 5

I stayed at Sol-Mate for a week during March 2015. It was lovely... very comfortable, nicely decorated, and I felt right at home. The house had everything I needed for my stay (including a bicycle, which was great for riding the bike path that runs the length of the island!), and the owners provided detailed information/brochures about things to see/do around the island. The house is in a quiet, residential neighborhood. It was a very relaxing and peaceful vacation. So nice... I particularly enjoyed sitting on the back deck watching the sun set over the water, going to the West End Beach (it was sunny and in the 70's all week), and the pizza at Island Rainbow! The owners were great about responding quickly to any questions I had. Dauphin Island just felt like a nice, safe little community - everyone I met was friendly, and I could easily walk or bike anywhere I wanted to go. It was an entirely carefree vacation.

Mardi Gras at SOLMATE

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at SOLMATE. We traveled there from Houston to enjoy Mardi Gras in Mobile with family and friends. Despite some bad weather the house was comfortable and nicely decorated. For warmer times of the year the dock and fishing lights were very nice. The water was a good depth for swimming for children. The deck goes completely around the house and the back deck looking over the bay was very comfortable.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much! We are so glad that you chose to stay at Sol-Mate for the Mardi Gras festivities. We would love to have you back down for warmer weather! The island is awesome year round. Please come back and check out the new outdoor addition that we are adding to the house. And don't forget, returning guests receive a discount. We so appreciate that you chose Sol-Mate for your vacation home!!!

Christmas Treat

  • 5 of 5

Sol Mate made our family Christmas gathering an extra special treat this year. With my grown children spread out from Texas to Virginia, Dauphin Island made the perfect gathering spot and Sol Mate was the star. The comfy beds, beautiful sunsets, walks on the nearby beach and the friendly heron that greeted us each day made for a peaceful and restful Christmas for us all.
