Hi, my family and I are looking to relocate and Dauphin Island looks to be absolutely beautiful and is a small community which entices us even more, can anyone tell me what the job situation is there as I am a CPA and my husband is a plumber. Also, what if anything is available there rental wise and price ranges, thank you so much!!

There are no jobs on the Island unless they are temporary. Island Plumbing does most of the plumbing work there and as far as a CPA goes there more than likely be no jobs on the island. Mobile would be where you would find jobs and that is about an hour from the island. In the summer season temporary jobs in vending and such may be available. As far as rentals they are mostly vacation condo rentals and such. I don't remember seeing much housing for rent.I lived there for a short period of time this year. It is a beautiful place to live, very small and quaint. There is one school, and one skateboard park that I remember. There is one store on the Island that carries everything, but very expensive to shop there. Bayou La Batre is where we done our grocery shopping, with the exception of incidentals which we picked up at Ship N Shore on the Island. Hope this helps.
