We loved the house! It was clean and all the new updates made to the house and deck looked GREAT!!!-It was amazing walking out the door to a beautiful new deck and only a few steps to the water! We loved relaxing in our chairs on the beach while the kids fished, made sandcastles, and searched for seashells. A few mornings we watched the dolphins swim by and one day they even put on a pretty good show jumping around:) There is a small grocery store/bar and grill only a street or two down which was really convenient. I would definitely recommend this house and hope to book another trip for next year!!!
We will never stay at a beach condo again!-We love staying at Harris Properties beach houses! They are literally right on the beach...there is nothing to obstruct the view of the ocean. The beaches are clean and not crowded. The house was clean when we arrived. Kitchen was stocked with utensils and dishes, house was well furnished and decorated nicely. We stayed in This'll Do and That'll Do because we have a large family. The houses have similar floor plans and we were pleased with both. We like to take a plastic pool for the critters that the kids catch...last time, there were starfish!
Location is great-The three bedrooms 2 bath worked well for our group. The deck was partially covered which made it great to sit out on in sun. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook meals. The price was reasonable for beachfront rental. It does seem that the rental is fairly older, which in this salty air, brings on improvements. I would've liked to pull under house out of sun but that was not possible. I have rented many places on Fort Morgan road during this time of year. It did seem because our house was next to beach access for the other houses back off beach that it was a little more congested at our beach part in front of rental. All in all, I would rent this house again.
First family vacation with grandson(22months) and we had a ball. Lots of good memories. Good chance we will do this again except stay longer. Loved it
Great Time-Had a wonderful time at Fort Morgan, staying at That'll do. The timing was perfect, had the beach pretty much to ourselves and just enjoyed the scenery and the ocean. That'll do was a great place to stay, a few minor things wrong, but nothing worth complaining about. Great place, and the Harris group kept in touch to ensure all was fine. We had a great time, thanks.....
Such a great vacation-Our second stay was just as good as the first. Love being able to drink my coffee on the deck in the morning and watch the sun rise over the ocean. Plenty of room for a family and love that it is furnished with everything that you need. Will for sure return next year
Yes, that will do!-We visit the Fort Morgan area each year in September and have stayed in That'll Do for the past five years. We wouldn't stay anywhere else. We have a fantastic time no matter what the weather brings. The house is the perfect size for us and has all the amenities one could need. We consider it our home away from home. In fact, we have already booked for next year. If you want to rent an affordable beach front home in great locations, with the most amazing views, contact Harris Properties. The staff there have always been so friendly and helpful to us.
VACATION-Had a wonderful week. House was very clean and ready. The only problem was that the air conditioner did not keep the house cool. Some evenings were very uncomfortable. We thought about purchasing fans to help. That complain aside, the house was just right!! Look forward to next year!Note from the manager: I am glad that you had a great time on your vacation even though you encountered an issue with the air conditioning unit. We did have our AC company clean the air conditioner coils (which has to be completed from time to time) in the unit and we have additional repairs scheduled for after the season. I hope you will visit us again at That'll do.Brian Harris with Harris Properties
Very Enjoyable! Awesome Views!-Very enjoyable awesome views. Couldn't ask for a better spot on the beach. Would've liked a later check out 11 maybe. Lots of people to rush out the door by 10. Very accommodating on everything. No pull out couch but there is an air bed but bring extra blankets for it. Would look awesome with new paint outside and new deck. That's just my opinion. All the colorful houses around it and love the orange. I'd prob add a back splash to outside rinse of spot to save your wood. All in all loved it and would Def come back.
Everything we needed!-We had such a awesome time staying at That'll do! The house had everything we needed and being right on the beach was such a treat! I highly recommend this place. Thanks for the amazing stay!
Staff was helpful!-Responsive to requests, can't beat location close to the water. Staff was helpful with suggestions for local entertainment and services to meet our needs.
That'll Do, did!-In spite of the fact that it rained the entire time we were there we had a good time. You said that'll do slept 11, and therefore the kitchen was set up to accommodate 11. This was great as we ended up playing games all weekend. A problem we have run into in the past. Condo slept 8, but table accommodated 4! The cottage was very nice and all agreed we would consider coming back. Here were our problems. When I found the cottage online it showed a green cottage. Was a bit shocked to get to green cottage and find it occupied. Then finally an astute old lady noticed the orange cottage said that'll do. As noted, we are "old ladies", 60's & 70's. The pictures we looked at and the description said trundle bed in living room - it turned out to be a bunk bed which none of us could get to the top bunk. It also said a sleeper sofa. The sofa and love seat are obviously new, and very comfortable to sit on, but not a sleeper sofa. So this did cause some sleeping problems. The way we see it, it accommodates 9, if 2 can climb to top bunks. So sleeping arrangements were not as comfy as you led us to believe. Cottage actually sleeps 9, not 11. Happy our porch had a partial roof. Cottages would be much more appealing with a coat of paint. Loved the water pressure for showers. Loved having the washer dryer for our towels as with 9 women no one knew who used which so we just washed them when all was done showering! Loved the list you gave us for things we may need. Wish you had printed a list of what was there. We could see the coffee pot and microwave in the pictures, but did not know there was a vacuum, broom, dustpan, mop, iron & ironing board. On the whole, though, we loved "That'll Do"Note: Sorry about the confusion about the sleeping arrangments. We have moved away from using sleeper sofas but the unit should have had a premium blow-up mattress. We feel that this gives us both better sleeping and sitting comfort.We hope that you come back to see us again soon,Brian Harris
Comfortable-This beach house was perfect for us... I am not your high class type. It was comfortable and fit us.. yes it could use some new paint or a screen on the window but besides that it was awesome. Just a few steps away from the water. Only complaint I had was it is at the public beach entrance for other houses and we always had people in front of the beach house. Had a great 7 days and would return at anytime!!!
"That" certainly will do!-Loved our stay at That'll do. The beach was beautiful. The house is as pictured and clean upon arrival. We will be back.
That'll Do Beach House-We did enjoy our stay, but the house needs a lot of refreshing and updates. All the screen windows were torn on the beach side of the house plus the kitchen window. The couch and love seat in the house were really dirty, almost to the point that you did not want to sit on them. One eye on the stove did not work. There are a lot of loose boards on the deck that made it feel unsafe to walk on. I am not sure we will rent that house again.A Note from the Manager:Thank you for choosing to rent That'll do. I am sorry that you found the home in need of updates. We actually have living room furniture being delivered this week (First week of December 2014) and we have our annual maintenance scheduled for next week.Thank you for taking time to let us know about the items that need attention. Brian Harris
We'll definitely be back again next year!-This is the second year we've rented a beach house managed by Harris Properties. Last year we rented This'll Do and this year rented That'll Do. Both homes met our expectations and we'll definitely be back again next year!
Great time!-Very quaint beach house. We had a great time. Wound certainly go there again. Loved that it was a bit off the main area and more quiet. The only negative was that there were no hangers in the closet (easily fixed).
Great house! So close to the water!-We had such a blast! The beach front was totally worth it and we spent hours admiring the beach! The house was just right for our family and we had no trouble with anything. Thanks Harris Properties for the excellent vacation!!
A Great Experience-My family stayed at That'll Do the week before Memorial Day weekend. We loved having the beach to ourselves! We saw sting rays, dolphins and a ton of different types of fish. We found the home to be spacious, comfortable and clean, and the drive into town when we wanted to go souvenir shopping or out to eat very manageable. Overall we had a very positive experience at That'll Do and look forward to our next trip to the Gulf Coast!
Had a terrific time in That'll Do!-Had a terrific time in Fort Morgan with our family!! We will go back :)Loved the sound of the waves at night, right by the ocean. I would say it was between 30. 50. FEET to the ocean. We were glad we picked the house with the covering on the porch, due to the kids getting sun-burnt. WAS A GREAT TIME AND WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND STAYING HERE!! HOT WATER AT ALL TIMES!Thank u Harris Properties for making our vacation a memorable one.
Perfect for our family of five-We just returned from a four day vacation at That'll Do. The house is older but perfect for our family of five. It is directly on the beach. I think that is the closest house to the water I have seen on the Gulf. The views were beautiful. There were a few maintenance issues that were no big deal and fixed while we were there. We had some issues getting on the internet but finally figured it out. This house is great for kids and actually had more beds and another bedroom that we didn't even use. The house is a 15 min drive to lots of restaurants and stores in Gulf Shores and a short walk on the beach to a pizza place with grocery store. If you stay be sure to check out the old ship wreck on the beach. Just take a right on the beach and it is a few houses down. Very cool! The kids LOVED it!
That'll Do... for sure-We had a great time at That'll Do! The weather made everything even better and we were able to take full advantage of how close the house was to the water. My group and I couldn't get over how awesome it was to be able to walk out on the deck and see the gulf right there. It was perfect for us to be able to walk 10 feet and be on the beach. It really made it worthwhile being right on the beach. We made a lot of great memories. I am hoping everyone will want to do something like this again within the next year. It also made it great that we could say That'll Do throughout the trip... Thank you again for being so helpful.
Awesome-We spent the fall break at That'll do home and it was great. It was the last time I would be able to spend time with my oldest granddaughter as she was in her last year at college. Plenty of room, great view from the deck, clean beach and safe for my youngest granddaughter. So many memories for my golden years to remember. Everyone at Harris Properties were so helpful and professional in helping me with this reservation this year. Will do this again..(need new frying pans).Note from HPM: We are doing our bi-annual kitchen inspection on 11/01/2013 and will be sure to put some new frying pans in That'll do.
Another Amazing Stay!!-We absolutely love staying here. It is the perfect beach house for us. We feel sorry for the people staying in Condos, because this is the only way to go. Fort Morgan is such a beautiful, non-commercialized area. Hope it stays that way! We even got to see sea turtles hatching during our stay! So thankful we discovered Harris Properties and Fort Morgan!
Exactly what we needed!-We loved our trip and That'll Do was exactly what we needed! Great for our nine month old puppy, plenty of play room inside and out. This is an older home so you don't have the latest and greatest in way of kitchen ware. If planning on cooking fresh catch, I would recommend that you bring your own pans due to the wear/scratches of the ones provided. Besides that, all you need to pack are bathing suits! Great location, great view, great vacation!
ANOTHER GREAT RETREAT!!!-ONCE AGAIN WE HAD A GREAT RETREAT!!! OUR 11 LADIES HAD A WONDERFUL TIME! THIS WAS THE THIRD TIME WE STAYED ON THE BEACH EITHER AT THIS'LL DO OR THAT'LL DO. BOTH HOUSES ARE JUST WHAT WE NEEDED-PLENTY OF SPACE AND WELL STOCKED.THE ONLY ISSUE WE HAD WAS THE SEPTIC SYSTEM IS EXPOSED FROM THE LACK OF SAND AND THE OCCASIONAL SMELL. ALSO THE THRESOLD/ENTRY INTO THE FRONT DOOR IS LOOSE-THIS COULD CAUSE SOMEONE TO TRIP.ALL MINOR DETAILS COMPARED TO THE SURROUNDINGS!WE'RE ALREADY PLANNING OUR FALL GET-TOGETHER!THANKS ELISABETH AND HARRIS PROPERTIES
Another Great Stay at That'll do-Had an amazing time. Weather was perfect this year, no tropical storms. If you have never stayed at Fort Morgan, you need to try it. Same goes for "Harris Properties." This is the second time we have stayed in "That'll do" and we love it. It is in a great location and fully furnished. We never had a problem with the wireless internet and our group had 4 adults with separate wireless devices! We're ready to plan next year's trip!!!
Must Rent!-First time in Ft. Morgan. That'll do is an excellent spot! It's right on the beach, nice and quiet, plenty of room, wonderful views, and cheap! I will definitely be using Harris Properties again! The pictures of the house do it justice. One great thing about the house is that since it's up on the stilts, you can relax in the shade out of the sun and still be right on the beach.The only reason it got 4 stars instead of 5 is because the internet was choppy (but who goes to the beach to browse on the internet?) You need to seriously consider this place!
Absolutely Loved It!!!-We had our stay booked for Labor Day Weekend and Tropical Storm Lee hit! We still had a great time and one full day of sunshine. The house was the perfect size and was furnished with almost everything you would need. Really enjoyed the large deck. It is located in a nice quiet section of the Fort Morgan Peninsula. We are booking for next year!
