Hurricane Delta Update: October 6, 2020

Hurricane Delta is projected to impact our area as a major weather event. The predicted impact is currently Friday PM (Oct. 9) or Saturday (Oct. 10).

We have made a decision to prep our homes for the coming hurricane Delta. Our maintenance team is currently working through 10 groups of homes or “zones” to prepare homes for the storm. They are working in two, two-man teams at the current time to address the needs of each home and owner.

We are currently allowing guests with a check-in date of Today Oct. 6th through Sunday, Oct. 11th to selectively postpone their vacation or move back their check-in date.

Notes on postponement

> You will need to reserve a time in the same home within 18 months of your current check-in

> If you have trip insurance and would like to cancel, we strongly encourage you to file a claim..

No Reservation Check Ins Through October 10, 2020

Update: Tuesday, September 22, 2020

We do not feel like our homes or our area will be ready for a proper vacation over the next few weeks so we are going to cancel, refund, or post pone all reservations from 9/27/2020 -10/10/2020.

We are in a heavy crisis and reconstruction phase in Gulf Shores, Orange Beach and Fort Morgan and we are preparing our area and our homes to be enjoyable for our guests to ensure you get the Harris experience.

Please give us a few weeks to repair and assess and we will send out another update on October 5th.
