The Birds Nest - This snug cottage is immediately adjacent to High Dunes (can be rented separately) both similar creature comforts to the big house, High Dunes, but on a more intimate scale. It is decorated in a West Indies style with bamboo flooring and art and travel souvenirs from Africa, Mexico and the Galapagos. The cottage features a king bedroom suite with full bath attached and an additional bathroom with an oversize rain shower. A loft with two twin beds overlooks an open floor plan that features a modern kitchen with a five burner stove top, convection/microwave oven, and stainless steel refrigerator. Three full size wicker sitting chairs, a pull out queen sized sleeper sofa and a wood burning stove make a cozy comfortable living room. The Bird nest also has full internet access, “55” screen T.V. DVD player, and a large library. An easily operated elevator takes you and your luggage more than 60 feet to the Nest with plenty of parking below.
Dauphin Island is a charming island community that still has an active fishing fleet, a small grocery store, gift shops, a bakery, restaurants and an art gallery. The town also boasts historic Fort Gaines, Dauphin Island Sea Lab and Estuarium, and an Audubon Bird Sanctuary. There is no need to drive with a bike trail that runs the length of the island. The Mobile Bay ferry runs regularly between Fort Gaines and Fort Morgan, the old civil war forts guarding the Bay (Damn the torpedoes full speed ahead!) providing travelers access to Fort Morgan, and more populous sites on the eastern side of Mobile Bay including Gulf shores, Daphne, and Fairhope.
The island is home to number of events and festivals including the Alabama Deep Sea Fishing Rodeo, the Sailboat Regatta, the Battle of Mobile Bay celebration, and the Alabama Coastal Bird Fest along with Mardi Gras parades, seafood festivals, fun runs and art and craft shows. Dauphin Island offers a range of water sports, fishing charters and sunset cruises.
Escape the throngs and take advantage of the best kept secret on America’s gulf coast.
Relax and savor the gentle ocean breezes while sipping your coffee on a spacious front porch. Listen to the calls of the Morning Doves and watch the Pelicans and Blue Herons coast gracefully over the gulf.
Our family fell in love with Dauphin Island in the eighties and built our vacation retreat.
