About the Property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

A Peaceful Paradise Awaits You at Catalina

Graced with seemingly endless gulf and beachfront views, Catalina is the ultimate tropical paradise in Gulf Shores. Whether you're gazing out from the breezy comfort of the covered front deck or from the glamorous master suite with a full private bathroom, you'll see the soft and sandy shores of the Gulf of Mexico stretch as far into the horizon.

Meanwhile, the interior of this lovely home boasts a spacious living room that opens to the dining room area, as well as a fully-equipped kitchen with appliances, cookware, and plenty of countertop space for sharing meals and moments together.

Inside Catalina

Entering from the wooden porch, step inside this lovely, cottage-style home decorated in clean whites and wood tones. Wide windows throughout provide exquisite views of the beach, just steps away, and the living and dining areas provide plenty of space for your group to gather for meals you create yourself in the fully-equipped kitchen. The master bedroom has a queen bed, while the second bedroom is setup like a guest bedroom, with two full beds and a twin. Each bedroom has its own accompanying bathroom. If you need to wash any clothes during your stay, there is a washer and dryer next to the kitchen entrance.

The Backstory on This Serene Vacation Home

Named for the famous WWII flying boat, Catalina has the distinction of being the original beach cottage first purchased by the Harris family in 1983. It is now owned by Becky Harris, and is conveniently located close to other Harris Properties vacation rentals, such as Fountain of Youth, Point Clear A, Point Clear B, and Bellingrath. This arrangement is ideal for larger groups of friends or family members that all want to enjoy each other's company without feeling confined to sharing a single house together.

Fantastic features of this home include its beachfront accessibility, as well as its handy distance from local attractions like the Fort Morgan Historic Site, the Fort Morgan Fishing Pier, and the Fort Morgan Public Boat Launch. Fort Morgan Historic Site is excellent for hiking and history buffs, allowing you to explore not only the physical remains of the once important fort, but also to learn more about the past with the help of costumed actors who depict what life was like while living at the fort.

Also nearby are Gulf Shores Marina's bait shop, fishing pier, and rentals for boats and boat slips, and two delectable restaurants known as Tacky Jack's Restaurant and Sassy Bass Restaurant. Tacky Jack's is located at Gulf Shores Marina and pairs great food with incredible views of the water, while Sassy Bass Restaurant is a jack-of-all-trades, offering takeout pizza and catering to your convenience needs at its package store and general store.
