My family & I enjoyed staying here. We loved having the swimming pool & beach right in the back yard. Everyone had an awesome time.
Hi Karren, thanks for the review! We are glad to hear everyone had a great time! Thanks for your feedback and we hope to host you again soon!
This was our 2nd year staying here for our family vacation. We love the location and the pool. The internet is only so-so, there was no broom, the pool light was out, & the upstairs a/c is questionable (we took fans this year), but no place is perfect & we had a great time & we will be back.
Hi Connie, thanks for your five-star review! I have added a maintenance order for the pool light, AC, and put a purchase order in for a new broom. Thank you for letting us know about these issues so that we can address them. Thanks for letting us find your perfect spot in the sand!
Old wood on railings caused splinters in hands. Furniture uncomfortable. Furniture/decorations old and unattractive. Kitchen well equipped. Nice beach. People next door took up entire pool area. Will not be back. Thank you
Walter, thank you for the review as these help us take corrective actions to our properties. We will look at the railings at the property to see what can be done about splinters. The furniture is as pictured as in photos. Unfortunately in a duplex the amenities but be shared with both sides of the property, a private home with a private pool may be a better fit for you and your family. We hope that you will give us a chance to host you with a better stay.
Good not great
This house is in a really great location. It's right on the beach, you can literally walk off the back deck and you're right on the beach. The beach behind the house was not crowded at all and we felt close to a lot of main attractions in Gulf Shores. It accommodated our party of 12 really well, which included 5 children. There were a few downsides though, and I will get into them, but they did not overshadow the good. We arrived shortly after check in time, and there was a painter working on the house and blocking the end of the driveway. He was polite and happily moved his vehicle for us, but we didn't understand why we weren't at least informed that there would be people painting the house during our stay. We were told there is parking for four vehicles and that is true, but we didn't know the driveway would be one car wide, which was a minor inconvenience at times when the driver at the front of the driveway needed to leave and the other two families had to back out and then back in. The pool was not heated, which basically made it unusable in late March unfortunately. Overall though, it was a very positive experience.
Hi Kayla, thanks for taking the time to write a review, as this helps us improve the quality of our guest's stay. This unit is a duplex, and we weren't informed the other side was being painted by the owners of the other side. Also, we apologize there was a miscommunication on the pools, as we did not advertise it as heated. We hope your stay was enjoyable, and we look forward to hosting you again soon! Thank you for letting Harris Properties help find your perfect spot in the sand!
Great location, unfortunately the house didn’t meet our expectations......
The great location of the home was the only positive. Dirty would be an understatement. Every bed had sand in the sheets. There were numerous signs of water damage. The presence of mildew was downright disgusting. A new cleaning crew and a painter would do the place wonders. Hopefully our young children will only remember the beach when they look back on their first trip to Gulf Shores.
Hello Clint, we apologize that this unit did not meet your expectations. We will conduct a mildew inspection of the unit and we will follow up with the cleaning company. Next time, please give us a call upon your arrival so that we can make any issues right for you. We will have our Director of Guest Relations reach out to you in regards to the issues that you experienced.
