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 Gulf Shores

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.

Wonderful/Relaxing Break

  • 5 of 5

My family did a very impromptu Thanksgiving Break vacation to the beach. We booked the Penthouse and headed to Gulf Shores for the week. Our goal was to have family time, beach time, and have a Thanksgiving dinner. We wanted a place where we could be ON the ocean. Wanted to see the beach first thing when we woke up. Wanted to sit on balcony and listen to waves while having coffee in the morning or a glass of wine at night.

With that said...we booked the Penthouse. I have to say that all of my expectations were met. I am picky about beds and them being comfortable....and I have to say the beds were great. You are truly right on the beach....There were plenty of dolphins to see and stingrays were abundant as well. I always judge a place I stay by asking myself, "If I went back to Gulf Shores, would I book the same place or would I look for something different?" I would definitely stay here again. Thanks for having us.....and maybe this becomes a tradition!

Close to it all!

  • 5 of 5

When the owner told me it was on the beach, I really didn't expect it to be directly on the beach!! The place was beautiful and well kept. Everyone loved watching the dolphins from the porch and going to restaurants was also close by. We would never consider going anywhere other than here now! Thank you for allowing us to stay in your home!

The Best of Everything!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in many high rises and hated the large number of people and having to wait for elevators. Here there were none and it did not even matter. It is literally on the beach. You walk down and you are in the sand. It was so relaxing and quiet. There were very few people on the beach in comparison to those in front of the towers. We fell in love with the small complex. The owners were responsive and kind. Everything was an absolute dream! We look forward to coming again soon!!

All was perfect

  • 5 of 5

I can't express how awesome this home was ,everything was as described the views were breathtaking, very clean , we had our own personal dolphin show every day and all day in front of the rental. everything is there that we needed for a weeks stay, I saw other reviews complain about it being on the third floor and no elevator I can assure you I'm an old guy with bad knees and had no problems walking the stairs and carrying my luggage . you need to know that ahead of time , then there will be no reason for anyone to complain about the lack of an elevator .looking forward to possibly another stay next year

Family Vacation II

  • 4 of 5

The penthouse was wonderful. It was in a great location. So spacious for a 13 month and a 4 year old to run around in. There was 5 adults and the two little ones. Everyone had room or a place to go to. Loved my mornings drinking coffee on the balcony, listening to the waves. There was a few hiccups that I am sure the owner is going to fix. Over all, we had a great trip.
