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. 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.

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.

Good location...right on the beach

  • 4 of 5

Nice place, right on the beach. There was ample space, it was nicely decorated, and actually looked better than the pictures. That said, it is part of at medium sized condo lots of people around, shared pool, etc. Not a problem, just couldn't tell from the picture that there are other buildings like this one around you. Also, no complaints but it could have used a few items commonly found in rentals like this. There was only one dishtowel, no hot pads, very limited paper goods, and minimal kitchen ware. Overall, it was a nice place though with a great view of the ocean.

Its one thing to select the perfect place when you travel to an area that has such beauty as the Gulf Shores area. But when you factor in the hospitality, dedication of the owner, attention to detail and the overall communication with return calls and emails from the owner, this was more than a 5-star stay. The owner, Denny was beyond owner who understands customer service. To summarize, Denny is an individual that gets it and he provides top service. The penthouse is perfect for a vacation. The position and scenery of the unit to the beach area allows to literally set out of your door and onto the beaches for ease, less hassle and minimal carry and sweat when toting your beach gear! The layout of the penthouse provides adequate square footage and amenities for an enjoyable stay. THIS IS NOT A PLACE FOR A FAMILY OR CREW TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF....respect the premises, control the sand in the unit, respect the renovation and time that Denny has put into the house. If you will leave as I and my family. Its well worth the money spent. WE WILL DEFINITELY BE RETURNING! Thanks Denny and the Gulf Shores area!
