Dauphin Island, AL   Dauphin Island is a 14 mile barrier island in the Gulf of Mexico, located 33 miles south of the City of Mobile, Alabama.  The island is the only one of its kind off the Alabama Gulf Coast and accessible via a 3.2 mile bridge that connects the island to mainland Mobile.  Visitors can also arrive by auto-passenger ferry, which runs daily from the tip of the Fort Morgan Peninsula across Mobile Bay to Dauphin Island.  Once the island, visitors are able to relax in a more secluded gulf beach destination, free from the crowds that flock to traditional vacation destinations, like the Florida Panhandle or the Orange Beach.   Search Dauphin Island Waterfront Real Estate for Sale   There are many activities, outside of soaking up rays on white sandy beaches, to enjoy during y...

  Officials Work to Boost Dauphin Island Tourism   Senator Ben Brooks, R-Mobile, sponsored a bill that will allow Dauphin Island and other south Mobile County to set up an organization to promote attractions and lure visitors to the area.“The local tourism development folks will have a much stronger tool to use,” said Sen. Brooks.  The new tourism organization should be promoting local spots within months. His bill doesn’t actually create a new tourism promotion group. Instead, it gives cities and counties the authority to jointly launch such organizations by passing their own resolutions. Regional leaders have some legal work to do before the group can get started but they are looking to act on it quickly.   Search Homes for Sale on Dauphin Island, Alabama   William Barrick, serves on ...

Bucking the trend for higher and higher insurance premiums for coastal real estate and homes, the new luxury Holiday Isle condominium residences on Dauphin Island, Alabama (a barrier island south of booming Mobile, Alabama) has announced the results of the new insurance coverage. The new rates are almost 1/2 of previously quoted rates.  This is a testimonial to the superior building principles employed when this 7 story, gated condominium residence with attached parking garage was built.  Included in the coverage are both pools and parts of the unit owners built ins ina total departure from the normal standards.  Information from Holiday Isle LLC Prices and more info  Marion Laney at ACP Real Estate Insurance discussion video

A new marketing campaign to target potential visitors within a 250 mile area of Mobile Alabama has been announced. The theme of the promotion should have a direct effect on my beach home market on Dauphin Island.  As our warm gulf waters and white sands are only 30-40 minutes from Mobile, Dauphin Island will be the natural SunSand and Surf location to "Chill Out".  Check out the beach view from the Dauphin Island webcam.

The power of one photo.  Dauphin Island makes it onto Webshots! This morning I checked email and saw a BUNCH of emails from WebShots commenting on a photo of "Dune House" I had posted.  At first I thought it was bogus as my account showed no comments.  Then the emails kept coming so I figured out that a photo of the sleeping porch at "Dune House" was the featured shot in the Home and Garden section.  No forewarning from WebShots, I was pleased about the recognition but a note to notify me would have been good. The moral is the old law of unintended consequences.  I placed this photo on Webshots to ease the chore of imbedding it in multiple sites and in response to renter inquiries.  Certainly never expected it to be chosen as a featured photo with all they have to choose from.  Anyway e...

This has been a great summer for us on coastal Dauphin Island.  Although sales continue to be slow, the home and residential lot market has stabilized with several new closed and pending transactions of homes and lots. Home construction continues on all parts of the island and inquiries from 2nd home buyers, full timers and investers about local builders continues to grow. With such a good vacation rental market and a growing residential market in Mobile the prognosis is for continued strengthening and a return to appreciation in the mid-term. Publicity over our towns new West End public beach on Dauphin Island increases profile among nearby buyers who remain our principal source of home sales.  The press about the billions ThyssenKrump and Northup Grmana/Airbus/EADS are now or plan to ...

One of the areas I enjoy focusing on I have dubbed the "ForgottenGulf" .  This area encompasses coastal Alabama and parts of Mississippi.  My favorite subject in this area is Dauphin Island, which for unknown reasons was labeled as "destroyed" by hurricane Katrina by media outlets.  Nothing could have been further from the truth and has just added further veracity to my term for the region.  Yes there was damage, I lost a cottage that had been on the glorified but glorious sandbar called the WestEnd.  It sat a few hundred feet from the hightide line, it had survived many storms at 13 ft above sea-level and was destroyed by another home hitting it.  The house directly behind it was practically untouched.  The reason I say the damages were overblown is I have another home 1 mile to the Ea...
