About the property

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

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.

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!!!!!

Amazing View - Amazing Place

  • 5 of 5

I can summarize this stay in one word, "Wow." But let me explain why.

First, the view is amazing. This condo and the one next to it are the farthest out on the beach of any other condo in the area. That means if you are on the balcony and looking around, you don't just look straight into another giant high rise condo building. You get a great view of the beach and also great views of the sunrises and sunsets.

Second, the condo itself is very well done. The condo is very modern and very well maintained. When not on the beach, it is a comfortable place to kick back and hang out. The condo is well furnished with pretty much everything you would want, including cable TV, Internet and a kitchen stocked with what you need to be able to cook a meal in. There are also some nice touches to help make it feel like a home away from home.

Finally, the owner was very easy to work with and very helpful with any questions we had.

In summary, we really enjoyed our stay here and will certainly stay here again. We made some very magical memories on this trip that will be lasting a lifetime.

It was very clean, smelled wonderful, and was so peaceful! Beautifully done inside and the view is perfect! The bed was so soft and the towels were hung perfectly. Very safe and secure. I couldn't have dreamed of a better place to stay. I will certainly be coming back. You can count on it!

Had Everything We Wanted and More!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay here was wonderful! The views of the beach, and some frolicking dolphins, was uninterrupted. The furniture was comfortable and seated everyone well. The beds were large, clean, and helped ease away all the stress from pre-vacation. Being located where it is, we had easy access to awesome food and entertainment! The owner was solicitous and helpful in recommendations. He responded whenever we contacted him about anything. I can't image staying anywhere else. Thanks for sharing your home with us!!!

Great Place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time at Gulf Shores with family and Harbor House Penthouse was a great place to enjoy the Gulf. Really nicely furnished and we did not find anything missing that we needed. It was clean and ready to go for us and we really enjoyed the views and the size of the Penthouse. Would recommend this to anyone who does not need an elevator (handicap) as you do have 3 flights of stairs to climb, but no waiting for an elevator. It was not noisy and the grandkids enjoyed the pool when the Gulf was flagged for jellyfish. I would definetly come back here.
