Location

Car: Recommended

Dauphin Island is a barrier island located three miles south of the mouth of Mobile Bay in the Gulf of Mexico. Enter the island by crossing a three mile long high rise bridge which opened in 1982 after the original draw bridge was destroyed by Hurricane Frederic in 1979. An automobile ferry from Fort Morgan offers an entry point on the eastern end of the island. The island is approximately 14 miles long and 1 ¾ miles wide at the widest point. The eastern six miles are inhabited while the western 8 miles are undeveloped and privately owned. Approximately 1300 permanent residents call Dauphin Island home. The number of residents soars during vacation and holiday times. The entire island is a bird sanctuary and thousands of visitors come to experience the annual migrations from Latin America.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: I live in New Orleans and own three beachfront condos, in Pass Christian, Mississippi and Dauphin Island, Alabama and a mountain getaway in Sapphire, North Carolina. I have my kites and my birding interests. I don't like to walk across the highway to experience the beach. I like to live on the beach. So here you have direct beach living with nothing but raw nature between you and the sand, dunes and water.

Why the Owner Chose Dauphin Island, AL, USA:
This is island living at its best. Having lived on several islands in the Aegean Sea, I know the experience of island living. I know how it feels to see the mainland in the distance while knowing you are not part of the mainland environment. You are in a separate, different world inducing an island state of mind. The rawness of this barrier island captures that sensation. On the island you can experience the intimacy of nature and the beauty of the shimmering Gulf of Mexico in its primal, unadulterated form. The island is a unique place, and this unit at the unique Holiday Isle resort offers everything: opulent condo, luxury resort, with truly incredible views of the beach and Gulf of Mexico from this special high-rise condo (while of course staying high and dry!). I am a birder. The island is a major stopping point for birds migrating back and forth from Latin America. I like to watch the herons, pelicans, cormorants and other sea and air creatures while enjoying the spacious balcony, using the powerful optics provided. Of course I also like the amenities of a quality resort, in an opulent setting, and we certainly have that here. On the island you witness the divine sense of nature in a pacifying setting without the unnecessary and distracting trappings of modernity and commercialism so prevalent on the mainland. Enjoy the unique harmony of this haven of serenity suitable for undisturbed reflection.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Huge balcony with stunning views in all directions--south, north, east & west. You'll find nothing like it on the mainland! The whole island is a bird sanctuary. Please use our high-power binoculars and scopes and our tripods. We have a great library focusing on birding, boating, the Gulf of Mexico, and regional wildlife and history. Extravagant furnishings and distinctive original modern art ! You know you are on an island when you see the Gulf of Mexico before you and Mobile Bay behind you. This is NOT Orange Beach or Destin! No fast food joints! This is supreme luxury and beach living as it was decades ago, except you experience the wonders of the Gulf of Mexico from 80 feet in the air and in an opulent and extremely comfortable setting. You will not see a traffic light or a crowded beach. You will experience relaxation and stupefying views you will remember and cherish! This resort has all desired amenities: an outdoor pool overlooking the ocean, an indoor heated pool with hot tub, steam room, sauna, tennis court, and a state-of-the-art work-out room overlooking the pool and ocean. This beautiful 6th floor, 3 BR, 2BA condo is brand new and incredibly spacious! No bunk beds! Enjoy knock-out views, including miraculous sunrises and sunsets! Experience serenity as the seclusion and tranquility delude you to feel that your family is alone on the island! We appointed this condo with quality furnishings for selfish reasons -- because we wanted it to be perfect for us. Expect quality linens, elegant decor, and a well-stocked kitchen, pantry, laundry and bath. We want our guests to enjoy the condo and island and not worry about the picayune details, e.g., toiletries, detergents or condiments! You will want to come back. We want you to come back. Stay at Dauphin Island's Holiday Isle Resort. Let the crowds stay on the mainland! Enjoy the seclusion! Experience the Redneck Riviera like your parents did, but with 21st century luxuries!
