Location + Surroundings
This property is located on Dauphin Island, Alabama, where it is situated right on the beach. At high tide, the waves of the Gulf of Mexico splash directly below its deck, and guests can enjoy views of the Gulf from almost every room of the cottage. Natural highlights of the island include the Audubon Bird Sanctuary, which encompasses 164 acres of woodlands laced with walking trails and filled with pines, live oaks, and magnolias, as well as a swamp, marshes, dunes, and Gulf beaches.
As its name suggests, the sanctuary is a prime spot for birdwatching, with 420 species having been documented in its boundaries to date. Other points of interest on the island include the historic Fort Gaines, which was built in 1821 and played an important role in the Battle of Mobile Bay during the Civil War.
The property is about 55 minutes from Mobile, where guests will find the nearest regional airport, and an hour and 40 minutes from Gulfport, where the nearest international airport is located. Read More
