Overview

About the property

Built On The Beach, You Cannot Get Closer To The Water Anywhere In Gulf Shore

Following Hurricane Frederick in 1979, the Federal Government established the CCL (the Coastal Construction Line) which prevented any structures to be built in front of that line. Frederick was devastating to Gulf Shores and many properties were obliterated. Harbor House was built before the CCL went into effect and was built far onto the beach. All the other buildings were built behind the CCL leaving the 2 Harbor House beachfront buildings far in front of them. Essentially this has created a view from the top floors of these buildings that is simply breath taking. There are no obstructions. South, East or West you can see it all. In the mornings, the dolphins come out and play, sometimes it's the stingrays that follow the waves right up to the beach. During storms, there is no better place to watch everything roll in. Unobstructed views.

Condos have a very square feel to them, apartment type living. These Harbor House Penthouses are more beach cottages sitting up on top of apartments. With an open-air feel, great fenestration on the Gulf and vaulted ceilings you realize they are homes, beach houses sitting up with a view you will smile about for years to come.

Exceptional!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Penthouse A1 and the name says it all "A1!!" Everything was very up to date, spacious, and well-maintained. We spent one of the most relaxing weekends ever. We loved the lay out of the condo. The owner was great to work with; made check in very simple. It was in the heart and soul of everything!! We hope to go back soon!!!!!

Girls Weekend Fun

  • 5 of 5

We had a girls weekend at this condo and it was perfect! With 8 women getting ready, we never ran out of hot water. The condo is very convenient to the beach, small grocery store across the street, and fun restaurants and bars. We definitely would come back! Denny was great to work with, and answered all our questions right away.

GREAT PLACE !!!

  • 4 of 5

My family including grandchildren stayed in the Penthouse during the hot July days. It is a wonderful condo, everything is updated with all the extras.

It was very clean, roomy, close to the water and had a great view of the Gulf.

I would recommend this condo for anyone looking for a roomy condo and close to the beach and local restaurants.
