To help you get in the holiday spirit, the home will soon be beautifully decorated for Christmas, complete with Christmas tree! This charming and comfortable home is conveniently located a short 20 minute drive from the beautiful Bellingrafth Gardens and Home. You will not want to miss out on their gorgeous holiday light show, "Magic Christmas in Lights."

Ke O’hana Hale (The Family Cottage) is conveniently located on the Gulf side of the island, just a few steps from the water’s edge. We are certain this 1400+ SF, well-appointed and beautifully decorated, 4 bedroom/3 bath cottage will become your family’s favorite vacation spot. Great care has gone into planning every detail for our guests from soft, comfortable linens to every imaginable cooking need for your home away from home.

The floor plan includes an open living/dining area with lots of seating, beautiful views of the water, and large windows letting in lots of natural light. The kitchen is well appointed with everything needed for cooking family meals and includes a microwave, coffee pot, toaster, hand mixer, blender, crock pot, convection oven, dishwasher, and all the flatware, glass, dish, serving dishes, and cookware needed. The center island is great for food prep and also offers seating for 8. A rectangular drop leaf table offers additional seating for 2. A full-size gas grill is available for cook-outs.

There are 2 master bedrooms, each furnished with a king bed and private bath with single vanity and shower. The northeast guest room (mermaid room) is furnished with a set of twin beds and the center north bedroom has a full/twin bunk bed. The third bath is located off the hallway and is a single vanity with tub/shower combo. All bedrooms are equipped with flat screen TVs and DVD Blue-Ray players for your enjoyment.

The oversized covered porch is perfect for relaxing, dining, reading, or just watching/listening to the waves. When dolphins are swimming close to shore, they can often can be seen from the porch.

Dauphin Island is known for its shell collecting, fishing, bike and walking trails, a wonderful bird sanctuary, Estuarium and Sea Lab, and historic Fort Gaines. Other attractions in the Mobile area include the USS Battleship Alabama, Bellingrath Gardens, and the historic antebellum homes. Or, you can take the ferry from Dauphin Island to over to Fort Morgan in Gulf Shores.
