About Cindy or Richard Lowden

Having grown up in this area, Perdido Key will always remain the most beautiful beach in the world to me, grew up watching the Blue Angels practice overhead every week and lived for those walks in the sand, sea shelling, crabbing, fishing and swimming in the Gulf of Mexico.

Why Cindy or Richard Lowden chose Perdido Key

It is perfect for fishing, boating, surfing, skiing and walking on the beach. A quiet area that is right in the middle of Perdido Key State Park, close to NAS and downtown Pensacola, Orange Beach and Gulf Shores.

What makes this house unique

Being on the water is so soothing, nature's therapy, with just a short walk over to the beach, making it ideal! Whether enjoying the view of the water from the deck or fishing from the dock, it is always enjoyable. The open, large floor plan allows the whole family to spend time together comfortably.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our guest said, "Thanks for letting us use your home, it's beautiful. Dan is going to miss the fishing & I will just miss that beautiful beach. So have a great year & be blessed."

First time visit to The Dolphin House

  • 5 of 5

It was wonderful! The beautiful home was well equipped for all our needs. With easy access to the canal and close to public beach, this home was perfect for our family. We will be coming back again.

Spacious House in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean upon arrival and more spacious than I expected. The beach is a short walk away. See my primary pros and cons below. We would definitely rent here again if returning to Perdido Key.

Pros:

- Kitchen was spacious enough for multiple people to share the food prep work and had everything we needed to cook with

- Master bedroom had a comfortable bed and updated TV with built in streaming services

- Outdoor shower made keeping the inside tidy and sand free much easier

- Beach toys available to the kids was a plus

- Plenty of parking space for sharing the house with family members driving from different location

- Loved the hammock under the back porch and the deck areas for sitting outdoors in the afternoon/evening.

- The Cranium board game we found in the living room cabinet was a super fun family game.

- Extra beach towels provided in the laundry room were very handy since we didn't have space to pack ours for the trip.

Cons:

- Upstairs mattresses are older and not very comfortable for older people, fine for kids

- Upstairs TVs did not have any cable or any way to use them. I would suggest removing them if no plans to update. It would free up a little space for luggage in those smaller rooms

- Living room TV did not have the built in streaming services that the master bedroom TV has and the cable channels are pretty limited

Second stay in this home, and will return.

  • 5 of 5

You can find my initial review among those below, in which I listed pros and cons of the property. I won't rehash all of those, here, but I will say that most of the cons (which were inconsequential when compared to the many pros) have either been addressed, or there are workarounds.

For example, I was incorrect when I assumed that there was not proper lighting to illuminate the entire stairway up to the house. There is, it's just that the switches are strange red horizontal levers, so you may miss them at first--just keep flipping things, until you find them. :) I also found that there was indeed a pump for the kayak buried beneath some things in the outdoor closet. It did not work well, unfortunately, but I purchased a cheap pump from Dollar General, and left it in the closet, for future use. Regarding the road in front of the cul-de-sac being busy and a bit dangerous to walk alongside, we discovered that there is free and available parking at the Visitor's Center just down the road, which is right across from the boardwalk. So, you can easily solve this problem by just driving a couple of minutes to the Visitor's Center, parking there, and then using the crosswalk to get to the boardwalk.

The only remaining con is that the upstairs tvs continue to be very old, do not have cable or hdmi access, and now do not even get over-the-air channels, as those being broadcast are now all digital, and the tvs are too old to include a digital converter. Basically, they are just taking up space in the rooms, at this point. However, that is an extremely small inconvenience to a beautiful house, and when you go to the beach, you're not really watching much tv, anyway.

See my previous review for a more complete list of the pros of this house, but they include that the owners are very easy to work with, the house is very pretty, it is very well stocked with cooking, hygiene, linen, and play supplies, majorly cutting down on what you'll need to pack, and there is access to recreational fishing right off the back dock, with an extremely private beach just down the road. In general, you will not regret booking a stay here. As I mentioned, this is our second stay in the house, so far, and we will likely book it next year, as well.

A great place to relax, and enjoy the beautiful beach!

  • 5 of 5

Our 7 week stay at the Lowden's townhouse was very enjoyable! The location to the beach was wonderful - just across the street and a short walk. The unit itself is spacious, attractively appointed, clean, has a well stocked kitchen ( Cindy even bought a crockpot upon my inquiry!), has comfotable beds, and is in a quiet neighborhood. The dock in the back of the house on the canal, provided fishing opportunities for our young grandsons, and the beach toys and chairs made trips to the beautiful shore both comfortable and enjoyable. Finding sand dollars on our walks was always fun!

Joe Patti's Seafood Co. has WONDERFUL fresh seafood, the Perdido Kids Park, NAS museum, The Wharf, Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo, and library also provided local enjoyment.

Cindy was always available by phone or email if needed.

We would highly recommend this property and hope to return in the future!

Thank you Cindy and Richard!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review. We are thrilled that you enjoyed your vacation. We, too, enjoy the quiet beach that always has seashells and being close to NAS is so convenient and the shopping, restaurants and theatre at the Wharf...We love Joe Patty's too, in downtown Pensacola and so many other wonderful places! It's all good! There are plenty of things to do for children! We will look forward to having you again in the future!

Car: necessary

This amazing waterfront house in Perdido Key is on a large canal connecting to Old River. Walk to our beautiful pristine beach just a few minutes away with a boardwalk. Easy access to Interstate 10 and 65 makes it a breeze getting here.

Being right in the middle of the State Park, there are no high rise condominiums to block views and the beach is just a short walk. The dock is just steps away from your back door and makes it so easy to walk down the stairs and go fishing, take a swim, or sunbathe. Lounge chairs and a big umbrella on the dock helps to protect from the sun or you can sit on the deck and observe dolphins gracefully coming down the canal on occasion. Just minutes away you can find awesome casual or fine dining restaurants, or visit the Naval Aviation Museum. If you like baseball, Pensacola is home of the Blue Wahoos if you would like some sports entertainment. The kitchen is ready with everything you need and large flat screen TV in the living room for your use.

With 3 bedrooms and 2 & 1/2 baths, you can comfortably have 8 to 10 people stay in this home.
