About Michelle Harris

We have owned this condo since 2005. Our family loves to spend time together at the beach. We have made many wonderful memories at this condo and it feels like our home away from home! We hope you will visit & make it your home away from home as well! It is also the perfect location to take your grandchildren as we are directly on the beach with indoor and outdoor pools. So convenient to everything you need for a relaxing getaway. Beach chair service available online.

Michelle Harris purchased this condo in 2005

Why Michelle Harris chose Gulf Shores

We love the privacy offered by being next to the State Park and Pier. We also like the convenience of being in Gulf Shores but only three miles to Orange Beach! This location is convenient to all restaurants, shopping, etc. The condo is perfect for a small family and is directly on the beach. No more long walks to get to the sand and water!

The indoor, outdoor pools, hot tub, sauna, fitness room, covered parking really complete it! We have the same guests come back year after year!

What makes this condo unique

Not as crowded as most condominium complexes

due to being located next to the State Park and fishing pier.

Walk to the popular "Sea N Suds" Restaurant, Waffle house, the Pancake house at the Best Western and The Hang Out.

Indoor and Outdoor pool plus hot tub and sauna. Only steps to the beach!

4.5 STARS!! Great location, great size condo, easy beach access and pool! Overall, we loved it!

  • 4 of 5

The condo was the perfect size for our family of 4! Walked right out to the beach! Great balcony looking out on the water/beach! Nice having no other building to the one side due to the State Park! Refreshing pool that is shaded in the afternoon- or go inside to the other pool and hot tub! The washing machine and dryer were very convenient! Quieter location, yet easy and quick access to the shops and restaurants. Does have limited covered parking. Would recommend having more than 2 total rolls of toilet paper and 1 paper towel roll, especially for a week's stay. Bring soap and dish soap. We enjoyed our time and would come back again!

Very clean and well maintained

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this condo! It was at the end of the condominium row away from the hustle and bustle of other tourists. Easy access to and from the beach. We will definitely recommend this to other people that want a perfect little getaway. Can’t wait to stay next summer! Thanks Michelle!

Can't wait to return!

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay & can't wait to return! The condo was very clean. The view from the balcony is amazing. We enjoyed the beach being less crowded because the condo is right beside the state park. The owner, Michelle is a pleasure.

*As a side note about the area, not relating to the condo.*

This was my family's first time visiting the gulf coast. All the pictures I had seen showed beautiful clear turquoise water. When we first went to the beach, I was shocked to see green water. I later learned that this is algae bloom & common in this area. This did hinder our vacation some because we were looking forward to spending time in the water. I do understand that the algae is harmless but it's not what we expected.

Also, if you're looking for fun activities to do in the area, The Fun Boat Dolphin Cruise is awesome & we loved visiting Fort Morgan.

Perfect getaway for a family!

  • 5 of 5

First off, Michelle is WONDERFUL to work with! She was helpful, and happy to explain everything each step of the way. She also responds very quickly when you message her. The aroma of clean scent hit me as soon as I opened the door, everything was clean and ready to use, kitchen is fully equipped if you want to cook or refrigerate, also had a standard coffee pot and kuerig, plenty of linens provided, bath essentials and the decor was very nice. The best part of this room is undoubtably sitting on the balcony viewing the ocean and pier and listening to the waves crash. You can rent chairs and umbrellas on the beach and there are tons of beach toys and pool floats in the common area next to the pool left from the people before. There are tons of restaurants close by with fantastic food and many activities to do alone or as a family. We toom a dolphin tour, which was my favorite activity! There is also a fantastic Tanger outlet mall close by. I wouldn’t hesitate to stay again, great place and reasonable rates.

Great condo in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here before & still love it; 4th floor gulf front unit, nice & quiet, bike to State Park trails - now even better thanks to pedestrian bridges - or walk 15mins to the Hangout and other restaurants, also like the new appliances and updates!
