About the property

Brand new furniture! Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, Sleeps 4-6

Quality is evident everywhere in this 2 bedroom/1 bath condo. The soft colors throughout this condo are very relaxing and just what you need to unwind at the beach. The sounds of the ocean can lull you to sleep each night along with looking out your bedroom window and seeing only a sky full of stars. The pure white sand on the beach is what made Gulf Shores famous. If you love to go “shelling” this is the place to be.

This condo has been completely redecorated from top to bottom and has all the comforts of home. Comfortable seating in the living room area along with a new flat screen TV for you to enjoy, if you can tear your eyes off the ocean view right outside the door. The kitchen has stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, a beautiful backsplash and every small appliance you need, coffee maker, microwave, toaster, mixer, and blender. And of course, a washer and dryer for your convenience.

The master bedroom has a queen size bed with luxurious bedding that contributes to a wonderful night’s sleep. A door from the master bedroom goes out to the balcony. Two bedside tables along with good lighting help for nighttime reading in bed! The guest bedroom has twin beds. The sofa sleeper opens to a queen size bed.

This unit is located in the heart of Gulf Shores at 913 West Beach Blvd. Only 9/10’s of a mile from the intersection of Highway 59 and Highway 182. We are in a small complex that consists of only 36 units, all units are accessed by stairs, no elevator on premises. This unit is on the second floor. The complex is very family oriented. We have two grills on the property for our guests. Under the unit is covered parking for two vehicles. A small convenience store is located directly across the street. This is a no smoking and no pets allowed condo.

All of the fun things to do are within a 10 to 15 minute drive. The largest Farris Wheel in the Southeast, a Waterpark, Zoo, Amusement Park, miniature golf, parasailing, three 14 screen cinemas, Tangler Outlet Mall and of course the best seafood restaurants in the South.

Great Location, Comfortable Accommodations

  • 4 of 5

As we personally prefer smaller, less crowded (and less elevator-constrained) accommodations on the Gulf, Harbor House was pretty perfect for us. You won't find a better beach access or view, in my opinion. The condo was amply furnished with everything we needed, and then some. Beds were comfortable, and there was plenty of seating for our small group of four. The only issue we had was WiFi access, but Angelo and his wife were responsive and helpful when we contacted them. Looks like we just got caught in a transition between wireless providers.

The only helpful suggestion I'd make is that ceiling fans in the master bedroom and living room would be great.

Thank you, Angelo, for providing such a nice place. If we find ourselves in Gulf Shores again, we'll definitely stay here again.

Great beachfront location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Harbor House 8. Despite some issues, Angelo was responsive and timely, even refunding one night's stay due to us having to leave early to attend a funeral. The condo is set up nicely, we even used handmedown sand toys and ice chest that were left in closet. The only issue is we couldn't find the sheet set for the pullout couch, on the last day, we saw them tucked in a small box under the side table (seemed they should have been in closet, but no big deal, we made do with blankets lol!). My only suggestions would be curtains in the master bedroom as the morning light was very bright (the second bedroom was nice and dark), and a ceiling fan in the master (as there was one in guest room). Otherwise, the condo was very clean and decorated nicely, the TV and DVD functioned well, the balcony was wonderful to eat out on, the kitchen was well stocked with cookware and dishes and we enjoyed the blender for beer-itas! The best thing about the condo is the accessibility to the beach as you simply go down 2 flights of stairs and are on the sand! It did get old taking everything down and setting it up daily (especially with two very young children), but this isn't the condo's fault as it is a new ordinance in Gulf Shores. There are chairs with umbrellas available to rent right in front of condo if you prefer. We loved the location as close to many restaurants, right across street from grocery and how the unit was smaller and quieter than many of the high rise condos next door. My sons also enjoyed the pool especially when shady in the afternoons. Overall, we had a great stay and would recommend renting from Angelo and staying at Harbor House, it really was a wonderful unit and affordable compare to many others. Thanks!

Perfect vacation getaway spot with an amazing view

  • 5 of 5

Beverly is a dream to work with. We were very pleased with every aspect of our 3 day stay. Everything in the condo was just as Beverly had described, and the view was absolutely breathtaking! This was by far the best vacation spot for us from the room to the location and of course the view was the best part! Thank you, Beverly! We will definitely be returning next year!

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

Harbor House is one of the best locations in Gulf Shores. Close to the water and many activities. Condo is comfortable and very clean. Dolphins every morning and beautiful beach. I would recommend renting the chairs from Ikes. Beverly was very nice to deal with and we had no issues. We will be returning to the Harbor House.

This was our first trip to Gulf Shores. The location was exactly what we hoped it would be - many great restaurants nearby, lots of shopping, and access to the beach for walking and shell hunting. This condo has all the amenities and is comfortable and updated (because it is located on the second floor you will encounter outdoor steps). The manager, Beverly, is a delight to work with - prompt, courteous, friendly and professional and had lots of suggestions for activities in the area, We are looking forward to a return trip!!

Owner's Response: Thanks for those kind words.....this unit is really pretty and the view is unbelievable. This past winter was not as warm as we would expect for Alabama in the winter...but if you are from Michigan I guess you know how to grin and bear it. Looking forward to seeing you next year. Thanks for the review, Beverly

Have stayed at Harbor House twice before. We stayed in the Penthouse both times since all our family was going to be with us. This is the first time we have stayed in this unit, since the majority of time it was just me and my wife. Definitely not disappointed. Our 3 daughters joined us the latter part of the week. There was plenty of room. Only had one minor problem after a severe thunderstorm came through. Noticed a leak in the ceiling of master bedroom. Notified the owner. Within an hour someone came by to check out the situation. The remainder of our vacation was fantastic. Would recommend this unit to anyone. Hoping we will be able to go back to Gulf Shores next year and hope we will be able to rent this same unit.
