Why Sally Teague chose Dauphin Island

This house and this location is special to our family. We have a large family and this house has been the center of many family gatherings, celebrations, and holidays. It's location on the Sound has always offered us the peaceful sanctuary just when we've needed it.

What makes this house unique

Very clean, open and airy cottage with stunning view of both the sound and the gulf. The house sits on the Mississippi Sound and is right across the street from the Gulf of Mexico. In the cold months, enjoy sitting by the warm fire. Awesome wade fishing and perfect beachcombing and swimming. This is the absolute best place to watch a sunset on Dauphin Island.

Perfect beach house that was very clean and well taken care of!

  • 5 of 5

This house was absolutely perfect for my family of 5 plus a Nana. The layout of the house is great and the kitchen is supplied with anything you would need to cook a meal with. The screened in back porch was perfect for watching those amazing sunsets without getting eaten up by the bugs. Outside shower was great for getting all that pesky sand off before going upstairs. Definitely recommend this house!!!

Very nice easily livable house. We took our groceries and beach supplies and had a great time. The only time we left was to go for a cup of coffee at the local convenience store! The sunsets were great along with some great fishing! The house was furnished better than anywhere we've ever stayed! Sally (the owner) was great! We will be back for sure!!!

Great house and location!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house with a wonderful view. The west side of the island is natural and quiet, and the water behind this house is calm so we didn’t have to worry too much about our kids playing. As opposed to the houses across the way on the Gulf side (which had the severe surf behind them and high winds). The screened-in porch was wind free and bug free. This house held two couples and two kids very comfortably. Sunsets are visible from the back porch. Our kids found tons of shells, hermit crabs, and saw dolphins up close in the water out back. It was a dream!

Absolutely wonderful house and location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Sound View for two and a half weeks and never wanted to leave. The sun was setting as we first arrived and the house is beautifully situated for views with a deck on three sides and a screened porch on the bay side. This house is on the west end of the island and from the porches you can see the Mississippi Sound just out back, the ocean across the street, and a long beach in the middle, with no houses. There is a bird sanctuary there and you can walk for miles with the ocean on one side and the bay on the other. We might see one person or two on each walk. You can buy fresh seafood just down the street and we became regulars at JT's Sunset Grill, also on the island. The house was bright and clean and we got very quick responses to questions from the owner. We look forward to returning.

The property was perfect for our family... right on the beach. The home was beautifully decorated, clean and comfortable. The owner was quick to respond and helpful when needed. We found so much to do on the island and surrounding areas. We can not wait to come back.

We had a great time! This house is perfect for our family of 4 with an extra adult. Everything is as advertised. The private beach was awesome, and the Gulf beach is a short walk across the street. I definitely would recommend this house for a great anyone looking to have a relaxing time.
