About Cathy Havard

Our vacation rental homes are individually owned by people from across the United States and beyond. They rely on Dauphin Island Real Estate, Inc. to be their management agency because they want professional management by the 'Dauphin Island Vacation Experts'. Our owners use their properties many times throughout the year. They enjoy the Island as much as we know you will!

Cathy Havard purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Cathy Havard chose Alabama Gulf Coast

We love Dauphin Island, a wonder of nature and full of history - a barrier island on the Gulf of Mexico . The population is about 1,300. The town is included in the Mobile metropolitan statistical area. The island was named for Louis XIV's great-grandson and heir, the Dauphin. Our 'laid-back' atmosphere is prized by folks who enjoy serenity and natural beauty.

The eastern, wider portion of the island, is shaded by thick stands of maritime pine trees, but the narrow, western part of the island features scrub growth and few trees.

Dauphin Island is home to Fort Gaines, Dauphin Island Sea Lab, The Estuarium public aquarium, the Dauphin Island Airport, boat ramps, a fishing pier located on the Island's eastern end, historic sites, several restaurants. Beaches attract tourism, and fishing is a popular activity in the waters around the island. The island is connected to the mainland by a 3.5 mile long bridge.

Although the entire island is a bird sanctuary, the main one is the 164-acre Audubon Bird Sanctuary. Dauphin Island is the first landfall encountered by many birds as they migrate north from Central and South America, and as a consequence many species can be found resting there before continuing their journey.

In 1519, the Spanish explorer Alonso Álvarez de Pineda was the first documented European to visit, staying long enough to map the island with remarkable accuracy.

The island's French history began on January 31, 1699, when the explorer Pierre Le Moyne, sieur d'Iberville, D'Iberville later decided to locate a port for Fort Louis de La Louisiane (Mobile). Fort Gaines on the eastern tip of the island was built between 1821 and 1848. It was occupied by Confederate forces in 1861, and captured by Federal troops during the Battle of Mobile Bay. The phrase, 'Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead,' was spoken by U. S. Admiral David Farragut just a few hundred yards from Dauphin Island's shore.

We love 'The Island' as much as we know you will!

What makes this cottage unique

There are so many reasons to love Dauphin Island. The atmosphere is quiet and laid back ( you are on Island Time ). The beaches are beautiful, white sand, miles of beach to walk and enjoy shelling, fishing, birding, watching the dolphins (lots of them)! The SUNSETS are fantastic...Dauphin Island is Alabama's 'Sunset Capital' Good'Nuff provides you with an awesome deck overlooking the views to the south, east and west. You are also close to the island-wide bike trail which is great for biking, running, or walking. There are no traffic lights on the island and life is truly low key. This will be the most relaxing vacation you can remember.

Exceptional!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely were blown away by our stay at our beach house. Everything pictured and promised was there, but even more. The supplies were beautiful, dishware were plentiful and matching which was fun! The house decore was gorgeous. Our house felt like home immediately. The arrangement of the rooms in the house made noisy fun we all had together hard to hear for anyone trying to sleep or rest. What a view of the ocean and a simple, easy walk right out the back deck stairs.

We are definitely looking to rent this one again. Thank you for helping our family create some of our very best memories.

Great property

Very well appointed house, confortable. Nicer than the photos look, which is more often the opposite. I highly recommend this house, just not our week.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying in vrbo's for years and I have to say this property was my favorite. This is a chefs paradise / the kitchen was filled with everything you need . I'm very fussy about decor (I'm a designer) this home was done with class. Every room was beautiful and furniture was clean ( they have white couches). You are only steps away from the white sandy beach . We were there over spring break and we felt like we owned the beach. The weather was a little rainy so we ventured out to many places. New Orleans, Biloxi, mobile and had great adventures. We had two 17 year old and two 20 year old kids with us and they all had a great time . We will definitely be back !!
