Overview

About the property

Nestled in the middle of Gulf Shores, this top story penthouse with almost 2000 SF was built far onto the beach and offers unparalleled views of the water. In fact, the other developments sit much farther back than this one does. A large 4 season porch is the perfect viewing point for dolphin watching. The unit has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and room to sleep 10! All cooking and dishware are on site.

Why owner/property manager chose Alabama

After searching for more than a year, we came across this unique property. Most condos are fairly small, but this one offered a 3rd story (complete top floor) view, without having people above. Being located so far onto the beach, we have been told it is the farthest reaching property on the beach. This in itself allows for incredible views of the water. We had little interest in being far back from the water or across the street. This unit was therefore ideal!

The Harbor House was AbsoPPP perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was excellent! It's directly on the beach with an amazing view. This was a family vacation so we rented the penthouse next to the property as well. It was just as spectacular. Everything was modern and clean. The beds slept so well and the rooms were spacious. The owner was very helpful and answered all inquiries promptly. The location was convenient to eating and shopping. It's 9 miles from Foley so you can enjoy Tanger Outlets and Lamberts. This was our first visit to Gulf Shores, the penthouse definitely made it a great experience.

Fantastic Beach Penthouse

  • 5 of 5

Rented this place for myself and some friends. The owner was very easy to communicate with and flexible when issues came up. It was clean, and we had everything we needed. The penthouse sits right on the beach, and the view is amazing. I would definitely stay here again in the future.

Great space and a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for our family of seven. The open living room, comfortable furniture and great TV made our morning and evenings very enjoyable. The nicely appointed kitchen allowed us to cook several meals and store all our groceries. Comfortable bedrooms and bathrooms all of which are tastefully decorated. The enclosed porch, literally on the beach, was a great place to watch the waves and walkers or to see the weather come in. We are already looking ahead to our next visit to this property!

We Didn't Get To Go

  • 5 of 5

Due to one of our gals falling and breaking her ankle two days before we were supposed to leave, we had to cancel our trip. She had surgery on that ankle a week later and is laid up for 6 weeks. Thank goodness we took out cancellation insurance!!!!!

It broke our hearts not to go and hope to rebook next year.

The Penthouse "Our Home away from Home"

  • 5 of 5

Harbor House Penthouse has the best view of the Ocean in Gulf Shores. We especially love the enclosed porch which has a sofa sleeper which my grandsons loved. The weather was beautiful and even though it was the first week October, they still enjoyed the outdoor pool at Harbor House. This penthouse is located close to restaurants, and entertainment venues and easily accommodated our family of 9 (5 adults and 4 children. This is our second trip to Harbor House. We hope to return real soon!

Great property! Perfect for a girls weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Myself and 3 of my friends stayed at the Penthouse over Labor Day weekend. The house was perfect! It is very spacious, nicely decorated and in a great location. I think our favorite feature was the covered patio. One of the days was pretty rainy so it was perfect to sit in there and look out at the beach. The owner was very nice and accommodating! I will definitely stay here again and will recommend it to others visiting Gulf Shores.
