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.

Love Dauphin Island!!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great week on Dauphin Island even though we didn't catch very many fish, but I feel we should have done more homework about fishing in the sea before going there so that's the way it goes. House was clean and comfortable, our group was 4 adults. It was nice to stay late at the West end beach and then come back and throw a supper together and be done with it. West end beach is only about 3 miles from this house and was wonderful. I would advise if you want to go on a charter fishing trip, call and reserve it ahead of time as in the off season they don't run as many charters. We rented a pontoon boat at the marina and that was very fun. Very quiet island . I would go back again.

Loni was very easy to work with; answered all my questions in a very timely manner. House had everything we needed for our stay.

Best View Ever!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here over July 4th and had the best time. This was our second trip to the island and we are already planning next years trip. The house was spotless and had everything we needed for our week stay. Loni was great to communicate with and answered any questions I had. The view here is AMAZING!! Our boys enjoyed fishing off the pier and I enjoyed early morning quiet time outside listening to the waves. This house will be one we rent again!!

Perfect Getaway

  • 4 of 5

Much larger inside than it appears and plenty of room for a family and very comfortable.

The westerly facing decks and dock allow for beautiful sunsets over water and great fishing and crabbing opportunities. The beach is a short walk and has a private feel due to the lack of large hotels on the island. The island is quiet and family oriented.

The only reason I gave this place 4 stars is that it was not fully stocked. From towels to kitchen disposables (dishwasher detergent, trash bags, etc) there is room for improvement. Make sure to bring what you need as the lone 'grocery' store on the island is over priced.

Still a great place and great location for a relaxing escape or a family beach vacation.

Great sunsets!

  • 4 of 5

This is a great house with the best sunsets!

only issue, there is no where to have shade or get out of the rain outside. We brought our own ez-up to put it on the pier.

Captain Snappers restaurant at the Marina was awesome, they have fresh seafood! the best!

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.
