This'll Do-Thank you for the wonderful stay at This'll Do last week! The house was clean and newly remodeled. The deck is awesome. The beach is right out the door. The neighborhood was great for dog walking. We loved it. :)
Great Beach Vacation!-we just stayed at this'll do and left out last week. it was beautiful. the home has been remodeled and on the beach. perfect for 6-8 people and it spey friendly. Harris properties was wonderful to work with and very easy to book from. we def will be using the company again !!
Well, I'm back home from Gulf Shores. Stayed at the This'll Do this past weekend. Such a charming, awesome little beachfront home. Completely remodeled inside, super clean, great open layout. Loved spending time on the newly built deck where I had a continuous breeze from sun up to sundown. Loved so much decided to stay an extra day once I got there. Just didn't want to leave!
Beautiful view of the ocean!-Loved being right on the beach and just steps away from the water...very convenient! iIt slept 3 adults and 5 children comfortably without being crowded. We had a blast! However, even though we spent a lot of time on the beach, with little ones needing naps we did spend time inside and the air conditioning seemed to have a hard time cooling during the day! Overall we enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back!
Best family trip ever-This was the best family trip we have ever had together. We rented This'll do and That"ll do. The houses were very nice, clean and hospitable . The views were breath taking. There was something for every age level. From my three year old niece to my sixty-eight year old dad.. We didn't just rent a beach house for a vacation we made memories that will last a life time. We are already planning next years trip back to Fort Morgan. Thanks a million Harris Rental Properties. Carly
Amazing Location!-We traveled with our Daughter and her fiance and also our dog and the trip was amazing. Our dog loved the trip and you are literally the closest you can get to the beach in Fort Morgan. We can't wait to go there again in the future!
Excellent location, comfortable house-We (Mom, Dad, 2 teen boys) spent Oct 4-9, 2014 at This'll do. The best feature of this house is the location just feet from the beautiful waters of the Gulf but away from the hustle and crowds of the beach resorts. The house is modest but has everything you need for a nice stay-plenty of towels, W/D, a stocked kitchen. This is not a luxury rental, but then again the price is very reasonable and the location is unbeatable! We like to vacation alone as a family of 4 to get time with just us and this home is small enough that we can afford to do this but large enough to sleep 8 people comfortably if you have a larger group. We stayed in the same house 4 years ago and there have been some nice improvements since then including new paneling, remodeled bathrooms, wireless internet and a second TV (flat screened). There are a few things that could be improved including replacing the deck lounge chairs,having more windows with intact screens to allow them to be left open during the fall months without worrying about bugs, and the living room furniture has seen it's better days. If you are looking for luxury, this may not be for you, but if you want a comfortable, affordable beach house just steps from the water that has all the essentials, This'll do is great! We have stayed twice and would choose it again for a future trip.
Perfect Beach location-The first thing that you notice when entering the house is the beach! The house sits directly on the white sand beach with beautiful views of The Gulf. The house was clean, beds were comfortable, and towels were aplenty. The beach was absolutely perfect with miles of walkable shore. The Gulf water was warm, the surf was high the week I was there with a rip current, but according to many local people, that was unusual. At night, the lights of the oil rigs sparkle on the horizon and the sound of the crashing waves are background music. This house is definitely a beach house/cottage but is exactly what a beach vacation should provide. Bring your beach chairs and beach towel. Then, sit back with a book and have a real vacation.
Great Location-A really good place due to location.
Exactly on the Beach!!!-Don't know that you can any closer to the water.... built right on the beach. Although the house is a bit dated.... It is complete for staying on the beach. Only time we spent in the house was at night to sleep. Clean upon arrival, however, trash cans out front were over flowing we arrived late Friday afternoon and were not emptied when we left Sunday morning. Sleeping is comfortable for 4 adults and 2 kids. We had 6 adults and no kids and I would just say it was not an ideal set up. Property manager pleasant and easy to work with. Would stay again.... just not with 6 adults. Thanks for sharing your home. We had a blast!
Beautiful view of the ocean!-I loved being right on the beach and only steps away from the water...very convenient and neighbors were good,great family atmosphere! Although the house was a little dated and could use a few new appliances, it was very clean upon arrival and it slept 3 adults and 5 children comfortably. We all had a blast! Even though we spent a lot of time on the beach, with little ones needing naps we did spend equal time in the house.Overall it was a wonderful vacation, will definitely be back!Note from Management, We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay with Harris Properties. We hope to host your next vacation!
Peaceful stay-My Husband and I stayed here with our fur baby. It was so peaceful to wake up each morning and have a cup of coffee while having a front row seat to the beach. Even the living area gave us amazing beach front views. It was partially secluded perhaps due to the season but we had an amazing time. It was much needed. Highly recommend a stay Here

Another enjoyable vacation-This is our 3d straight year spending family vacation at Gulf Shores and in a Harris Properties beach-front rental.This'll Do was a mostly good experience - I would have preferred the paved drive way to be extended closer to the steps; also, our modem was not marked with an accurate password.However, when I called the Harris properties office, Lynetta worked the modem password issue for us and soon provided us the correct password - kudos to Lynetta!All-in-all we thoroughly enjoyed our time at the beach and we appreciate how Harris properties helped make it happen.All the best,Scott Note: Scott, thank you for your nice comments about This'll do. You are correct, the driveway stops about 35 feet from the steps due to it being washed away by high tides. I am glad that you enjoyed your stay and hope that you will return again soon!Brian Harris
Perfect location-When you walk into "This'll Do", all you see and feel is the beach. The house could not be be in a better spot. The beach is beautiful, clean, quiet, and expansive. Dolphins can be seen off the shore in the early morning and evening. The house is clean, and beds are comfortable.Unfortunately, the second thing that is evident when stepping into the house is stale cigarette smoke despite the promise that the house is non-smoking. Turning off the air conditioner and keeping the windows open helps dissipate the smell. Windows need to be proper open because they are not in good working order. The kitchen has only basic items, don't look for the cheese grater or garlic press. We needed to buy a couple of things for cooking & left them there for the next guest. (I traveled from Boston to Gulf Shores so it was not practical to pack kitchen tools.) I enjoyed my week on the beach. The house is definitely a beach house that has a great deal of wear and tear, but if want to be at the beach without worry about sand on the furniture, this is the place for you.Note: Nancy, thank you for the nice comments about This'll do. I am sorry that you encountered a smoke smell in the home. All of our homes are strictly non-smoking and that should not have happened to you. I will let the owner know that they may need to consider a wider variety of kitchen items as standard.I hope that you will visit us again soon,Brian Harris
I you want a perfect place on the beach, This'll Do, for sure!-This beach house and it's twin "That'll Do" are both within a frisbee throw of the sea. In high summer you'll get the sunrise and the sunset from your deck. We saw dolphins playing in the surf every morning and pelicans dive bombing the sea constantly. It is heaven.They are probably the last two houses to resist the "tear down and remodel" bug that has hit the rest of the beach, so be prepared for charming comfort instead of hi-tech luxury. Everything was clean and functional, though. Wifi was fast and easy to connect to, TV had a decent amount of channels to choose from, bring your own stereo if you need music. With Sassy Bass within walking distance, you don't even have to worry about the long trek to Gulf Shore supermarkets to stock up the fridge. They sell everything you need and have a cocktail bar and restaurant, if you don't feel like cooking at all.We were a little concerned having read some recent reviews citing the state of repair and decoration as being substandard, but the house has either been recently decorated throughout and given new window treatments; or the reviewers were grinding an ax because of some other issue. The deck is weathered and rustic - if you can't handle that, then maybe you would be more comfortable at one of the resorts, with the rest of the herd.Be careful when arriving at the house for the first time, the hard standing driveway does not extend all the way to the house, and you will need a 4X4 to navigate the sand.We hope to make this an annual booking. The weather, location and accommodation were exactly what we needed.Note: Norman, thanks for your kind comments about This'll do. You are right, this is a charming little beach bungalow, nothing fancy but we have guests like yourself that love it, year after year! The driveway ends about 35 feet from the house (it gets eaten away by high tides).Hope to see you here again soon!Brian Harris
Nice Vacation-Excellent beach house! Perfect location! Nice vacation!
This'll do...Enjoyed our stay-Enjoyed our stay at This'll do beach house. House well equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay. The beach was beautiful and the sunsets were gorgeous.
WONDERFUL TIME-We really enjoyed our stay. Loved being so close to the beach. Thank you for allowing us to bring our beloved pet. She had so much fun. It was her first trip to the ocean.We arrived late and with our poor eyesight we overshot the drive way and ended up in the sand. We called a Tow Truck to get us out. $200I would suggest putting up a barrier or fence at the end of the driveway. An information book with local attractions and places to eat would have been really nice to have.Thank you!
Great Vacation-Loved the house. Loved the location.

The Great Little Getaway!!!-I was really impressed with the beach house and location. Nothing more satisfying than waking up to the sound of waves roving back and forth. And ohhh yeah don't forget the sunrise... absolutely gorgeous.Thanks for the great weekend.
Amazing! Very relaxing and quite.-We stayed for Spring Break 2013 and the house was perfect and the beach was clean and beautiful! I would recommend "That'll Do" to friends and family and all other properties. Very relaxing and quite.
Great Location for a Family-The location of the house was great, right on the beach! A short drive to town so that your not around all of the craziness of Gulf Shores, unless you want to be around all of that. Our Family enjoyed our vacation and the beach. The house is a bit older than what we expected from the pictures that were posted. This is our first vacation rental that we did, I felt the price was high but figured we would check it out anyways. After being there I still feel that its higher than I would have like to spend, however the kids loved being able to go down to the beach and we could see them from the porch which allowed us to relax. We plan to be back next year as it was a great time and very relaxing.
Excellent location truly on the beach!-We loved this place, very clean, right on the beach, had everything we needed. The deck was great to watch the sunrise! Just be careful if you come late and night and it's dark - the driveway is not well lit and we ended up in the sand!Manager's Note: Yung-Mei, I am so sorry that it was dark when you arrived and that you got stuck. There is a street light that is out that are working to get fixed so that future renters will not have that same issue. Brian
This Will Do-Really liked this beach house & closeness to the water. Would stay here again. Had great neighbors who welcomed us with a beverage from sassy bass. Clean beach & sand. Liked logistics of inside house. Everyone we encountered at Harris Property was wonderful....would like to compliment Elisabeth for her excellent customer service skills!
The house worked very well for us!-Enjoyed staying right on the beach. The house worked very well for us. Was great to have the option of eating out or cooking in. Loved drinking coffee in the morning while watching the waves!
We really enjoyed our stay at This'll Do and look forward to coming back next year.-We really enjoyed our stay at This'll Do and look forward to coming back next year. Your staff was very friendly and helpful and the place was well kept. It was a nice relaxing time with good friends just what we needed. Looking forward to next year.
Great Getaway!-Our family enjoyed our time staying here. We will definitely be staying here again. Loved that the beach was not overcrowded with people. A great place to bring your family!
It was the best retreat we've had so far!-I wanted to let you know what a great time our ladies had this weekend at This'll do.It was the best retreat we have had so far! The sound of the waves alone (which you can hear inside the house) was worth it all! Our nine ladies had plenty of room and all the beds were comfy! Well stocked kitchen-plenty of seating, beautiful beach- sunrise and sunsets!!! House could use a few cosmetic upgrades but all in all, well worth the money! We will book again next year! Thanks for sharing paradise with us! God Bless You!
The house was perfect for us.-Just wanted you to know what a wonderful time we had in Ft Morgan. The beach was beautiful, the water perfect! The house was perfect for us. So nice with the kids not having to pack up to go to the beach. No lunch with sand in it, being able to watch them from the porch and when the baby needed a nap, well we were able to put him down with out having to make all the others come in!
Any closer to the beach and you'll be in the water!-If you like the beach, you can't get any closer than this house! The location is out away from the condo crowds (you don't have all of the crowding issues on the beach)! Its location is still close enough to Gulf Shores attractions that it is not an issue (20 min drive). This house is perfect for 2 families with children. Plenty of room for everybody!
Gulf Shores Vacation 2009-Everything was great. Loved the location it was beautiful and peaceful. The beach was wonderful and clean. All the houses around us were rented by families which was great. We had a wonderful family vacation. We will definitely be back.
Wonderful!!-Simply wonderful. We loved the stay and the beaches were so soft and clean. Thank you, we'll be back.
Perfect house!-The house is so cute and very cozy. Thanks so much we'll be back!
