About the property

Chalet, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Comfortable, quaint, and cute are words often used to describe this tropical A-frame located on the Mississippi Sound. A wrap around deck shaded by palm trees leads down to the water and the 36' fishing pier. Fish or crab from the pier, or boardwalk, soak up rays on the deck, or watch the tug and barge traffic pass by on the Inter-coastal Waterway. 10 minute walk to the beach. WiFi provided.

Queen bed in the downstairs master, 2 full beds in one bedroom and a daybed with a 'pop-up' trundle in the other upstairs bedroom sleep 8 people comfortably.

Full bath downstairs across from the Master Bedroom with double vanity. Full size washer and dryer in the bathroom area.

The fully stocked kitchen is complete with everything you need to prepare a full course meal for your family and is open to the living area with views of the pier and Mississippi Sound. The breakfast bar will seat 2 or 3 and allow you to supervise the kitchen action. The Living and Dining area with 25' vaulted ceilings, has great water views, a flat screen TV with Dish Network service, comfortable leather furniture, and a tasteful Nautical Decor.

Head upstairs via a Heart Pine staircase with a brushed aluminum stair rail to 2 bedrooms and a full bath.

About Loni

Local resident lived in this house for 10 years. Offshore supply boat Captain and local Real Estate Broker. Currently live in Mobile and close enough to respond to any issues that might arise.

Loni purchased this chalet in 2001

Why Loni chose Dauphin Island

'Captains Quarters' was purchased as my primary residence in 2001 and was not rented out until recently. I settled on Dauphin Island because it is the most 'laid back', relaxing place I have ever found. The fishing is fantastic, the beaches are beautiful, and the Sunsets are phenomenal!

What makes this chalet unique

Sunsets, sunsets, sunsets!!! Fishing and crabbing off the 36' pier. Swimming or shelling a 10 minute walk on the beaches of the Gulf of Mexico. Scooter or jet ski rentals minutes away. Bike trails, best birding in the Southeast, Audubon Park, historic Fort Gains, Dauphin Island Sea Lab and Estuarium. The best offshore Red Snapper and sports fishing in the Gulf and inshore speckled trout, white trout, flounder, crabbing and red fishing on the private pier. Mobile Bay Ferry available for day trips to Fort Morgan or Gulf Shores. The casinos of Biloxi are 1 hour away and New Orleans a short 2.5 hours away.

Great Get Away

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful. Absolutely wonderful. One of the best vacations I've had. The house was awesome, the fishing was great, and the neighbors were quiet. What a great combination. Loni was very nice to deal with. And very patient with my questions. You can't go wrong here.

Great!

  • 5 of 5

Our experience renting the Captain's Quarters was, in a word, GREAT from start to finish. Working with Loni to make the reservations was simple and pleasant. She made everything easy and was always quickly available if I had a question. The cottage itself was very clean and comfortable and the views of the water had us sitting outside at every opportunity. We had everything that we needed to cook the several meals that we prepared and we slept wonderfully on the oh so comfortable bed in the master bedroom. It was a great overall experience and we will certainly be back. I would recommend this property and these landlords highly.

Magical!

  • 5 of 5

I recently spent a few days here and couldn't have been more pleased. The home is absolutely beautiful and charming and there is a view that is simply breathtaking. I can't say enough good things about this rental, about my stay and I look forward to returning again in future. They are pet friendly too which worked out for this chihuahua momma :) So glad they got to join my on our magical adventure! Oh, and the recommendations for dining were great. Thank you so much, Loni, for making this a truly memorable experience!
