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.

Excellent location, beautiful unit, great owner!

  • 5 of 5

The unit was actually on the beach! Being on the top floor it was extremely quiet and the sound of the waves was soothing. Storms came through but the view from the porch was amazing! Dolphins were great to see and the best condo we've ever stayed in. Everything was comfortable, classy and clean! The gated beach access was great and very private for the small development. Had internet questions and owner answered immediately. I would never bring my own chairs, renting the really nice ones from Ike's Beach Service as the owner suggested was truly the best. Loved being able to walk down the beach to go to the restaurants. Step down the stairs and be on the beach. Cool in the pool and enjoy coming in out of the heat to enjoy a sandwich and a/c. Did not want to leave, it was simply to wonderful! We will be back. Absolutely can not figure out why people write less than perfect reviews, this place is the ultimate! Thank you for sharing it with us!!

Beautiful place but not without problems

  • 3 of 5

The penthouse is beautiful and beautifully decorated. It had plenty of room for our family. You can not get any closer to the beach than you can here!! That being said we did have problems with it. Our biggest problem was we were not aware of the fact that there is NO elevator, only a very tight 3 story staircase. So be prepared to haul all your beach gear everyday. It is an older unit so we had problems with the plumbing. The shower in the main bathroom would not drain so we could not use it and the jets in master bath are broken. The air conditioning does not reach third bedroom so it was extremely hot. There are broken tiles, broken windows and screens, and one of the kitchen chairs was broken. The unit was in desperate need of new rugs as the ones in the bathrooms were disgustingly dirty. The owner and maintanence man were made aware of all problems.

Beautiful home with amazing views!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful home! Right on the beach with amazing views of the gulf. It was wonderful to be able to open the doors at night and be close enough to hear the surf. The owners were very gracious and made sure all our needs were taken care of! They gave us ideas for places to see and things to do. The place was clean and the beds so comfortable and huge!!! I would highly recommend this rental for your gulf stay!!
