About The Owner
Hi! We're David and Nancy, and we live in Daphne, AL with our two school-age kids, so we have been making this house available to guests to enjoy as well.
We designed and built this beach house after our original house was destroyed by Katrina, and put a lot of time and thought into how to do it right. The end result is a 'Key West'-style cottage, but with all the amenities of home.
The Owner purchased this cottage in 2007
Why The Owner chose Dauphin Island
We have lived in various Gulf of Mexico beach towns since 1990, and fell in love with Dauphin Island's quiet, rustic charm. There are very few places left where you can drive down a two-lane road along the beach, and see what the towns along the Gulf were like in the days before high-rise condos became the norm.
Most of the vacation homes on Dauphin Island are single-family beach houses sitting right on the beach. No traffic, no crowds, just a quiet barrier island to enjoy beach combing, fishing, shelling, kayaking, kite-flying, grilling dinner on the deck, and star gazing at night.
What makes this cottage unique
There is nothing like staying right on the beach. Being able to simply walk down the steps and be on the beach is wonderful. Sitting on the deck reading a book while listening to the waves, playing on the beach with the kids and then coming inside for lunch, are great memories, as are chasing crabs at night on the beach with a flashlight, or sitting on the deck and marveling at the beautiful night sky and millions of stars!
Guestbook comments from the owner
We have been taking the winter to make many upgrades and improvements at "Island Time"!
The entire interior has been freshly painted, and mahogany floors were installed in the living room, hallway, kitchen/keeping room, and the utility room.
We have also gone through and updated some of the furniture, and added new housewares (knives, pans, and small appliances).
Our calendar for 2012 is filling up quickly, so if you'd like to reserve our beach home, please don't wait long!
