Dock of the Bay was simply wonderful! My family of five stayed here and really enjoyed the beautiful home and location. The house is so cozy, comfortable, and well kept. The location is perfect for boat watching, wildlife watching, fishing, and crabbing. We loved the screened in porch with beautiful views. My family had an excellent time and hope to return!

Nice representatives. Beautiful property. We will come back. Loved the bench on the dock and the screened in porch.

This house was just what we were looking for: quiet and on the water with lots of birds and boats to watch. Fishing wasn’t great, but it was pretty cold. Dolphins visited right up to the pier occasionally. We loved the house and its location.

We have stayed at Dock of the Bay twice now and I posted a review after the first visitWe truly loved our stay both times and lol I actually have been keeping an eye on reservations in August because we are planning a visit then. The house is awesome and both visits we have enjoyed everything about the house . We have never experienced any issues. It’s always been very peaceful and we have had everything we need . Booking is easy and no issues with the air or anything! It’s become our place to find some peace and quiet and enjoy the view from the back porch and the dock! The only thing I would say is if the elevator worked that would be great but if not I will still return and recommend this house to friends and family !

We were very happy in Dock of the Bay last August. Great location. Quiet. We seemed to be the only rental on the leafy street and our neighbor was very nice. We loved sitting by the water.Accommodation was very comfortable except for the bunk beds which were not comfortable and not stable.The kitchen was really well equipped which we appreciated as we always cook.We were told there was no outside grill, but there was one there. That was a bit annoying as we had dragged ours along!I would definitely stay there again!

We really enjoyed our stay at the dock by the bay house. We had plenty of room for all of us. The dock was where we gathered every night for some night fishing and relaxing. A bonus was watching the dolphins every morning and evening. Thank you!!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our time in this home on the bay, and it suited our needs perfectly as a family of 5 adults plus 2 grandparents. It is a lovely home set back off the road in a quiet area and on the water. There were beds for all 7 adults, and the fact that it had 2 1/2 baths was very nice. We made a couple of meals in the well-equipped kitchen (Keurig and drip coffee maker, pots and pans, muffin tin, measuring cups/spoons, colanders, etc.) and stored lots of food in the refrigerator. Our guys enjoyed fishing from the long pier with non-slip decking (the only change I would make would be some sort of covering over at least part of the pier's deck.) They caught fish almost every day, we watched the beautiful sunsets each evening, and even saw a few dolphins swim by. The back screened porch with a lovely swing allowed those who wanted to be inside/outside to have a nice spot with such a great view. Part of our group even ate one of our meals on the porch at the high table and chairs. There were gracious plenty towels which was really nice. And best of all, there was plenty of comfy seating for all 7 of us to gather in the den each evening where we played games. The only real issue we had the entire time was that the internet at times was very spotty. I am sure that is more an internet provider issue than an owner issue. We just used cell data when it went out. Thanks so much for a very enjoyable home away from home!!

Easy to use and book stay. We booked a year ahead and had a flexible payment plan thru the year. Easy on line check in. When I did make a service call about internet it was taken care of within the same afternoon.

Really enjoyed this house. Loved the location. Lots of stuff to do in the bay, a short drive to the beach, and lots of great restaurants nearby. Kids were able to fish from the dock. Saw multiple dolphins. The dolphin tour boats pass by multiple times a day. House had everything we needed for our stay.

We stayed at Dock of the Bay. The home was in great condition.Very clean and all the furnishings were good. It is a very quite neighborhood. You are away from the hustle/bustle of OBA but close enough to drive in. Approx. 10 minutes to the Perdido Pass. Approx. 5 minutes to the wharf. For boaters, be sure you bring along 200=/- feet of water hose so you can wash down your boat (if you care too) as there is no water or electricity at the dock. Be sure to bring at least 4-5 heavy lines to tie your boat. I was able to tie my boat up using the dock and the pilings that are provided. Be sure you point the bow of the boat towards the ICW or you can risk a swamping over the stern. Yes, there is a lot of heavy boat traffic and this is not a "no wake" zone. There are lots of larger vessels daily coming from the wharf. This is the ICW, so there are a also a few barges and tugs that come through as well. We were there a week and my boat stayed on the water all week except one night and suffered no dock rash. It about a 5 min boat run to the wharf, 25 minutes to perdido pass, 60 min to Ft McRee (Pensacola), 10 minutes to the boat ramp off the ICW (just west of the wharf).Harris Vacation Rentals was so very easy to work with. After our reservation was made, I hade several questions. They were answered immediately if not a quick call back was given. The communication was the best I have seen with constant texts and emails. The check in was flawless. The check out was flawless. The home condition was clean and all the provided linens and towels were in good condition.My only complaint is the lack of options in the event of a cancellation or adjustment of a reservation. It seems you have to book these homes 12 months out. It is very hard to forecast with a busy family's an exact date for travel 12 months out. They leave no flexibility in the event of a reservation modification. Yes, they offer insurance as an option and I purchased it but there are many conditions that have to be met to take advantage of the insurance.

Great get-away house. Quiet area with unbeatable sunrise and sets. The house was comfortable and had everything we needed. The home it's self was spacious, beds were comfortable, with plenty of blankets. The kitchen was good, it wouldn't hurt if they added 1 sharp knife, but other wise well stocked with room for multiple cooks. The back screened in porch was special, it felt old in a good way, porch swing with the beautiful view and sounds of the bay. The dock was great for fishing, and for keeping our boat. The yard was fantastic, plenty of room for yard games. I would definitely book this home again

Perfect Getaway!

by Ronda
We were a little hesitant about the location but it was absolutely perfect! The house and neighborhood were so relaxing and quiet but everything was just a short drive (minutes) away - shopping, restaurants, groceries. We loved waking up and watching the fishing boats troll by and seeing dolphins as we had our coffee every morning! We would definitely stay here again!

The most wonderful thing about this property is the screened in porch. My family loves sitting out there and watching the bay. I personally had a lot of fun fishing off the dock didn't catch much but some catfish in a few tiny little reds. My son took the kayak out across the bay and caught some nice sized reds. It did rain most days we were there so we only got in one beach day which was fabulous the water was warm the beaches were white. The home was very clean. I did find the kitchen very disorganized and spent the first few hours trying to get stuff so we would be able to Cook. I suggest that you bring a nice fry pan. The griddle works perfectly for making your pancakes, the electric wok was great for cooking up some scallops, and the electric fry pan definitely does not work. There are many plates and cups so you will not have to worry about having enough for your family. We brought our favorite spices in marinades. There are plenty of clean towels in the bathrooms. There is also a small supply of detergent, shampoo, conditioner, body was and dishwasher soap. We had a couple maintenance calls while we were there and Harris properties was rapid to respond. We could not figure out how to use the elevator to bring our things upstairs. There is a handicap bathroom but it does not have a shower stool. I've had multiple back surgeries and would've preferred to of had a shower stool available. My grandchildren had a wonderful time with the weather the Wi-Fi was wonderful for the kids. We also had a lot of fun playing Uno. It was a wonderful family vacation. We definitely are thinking about renting this vacation home again

Our family really enjoyed our stay at Dock of the Bay. The location is ideal, close to everything but secluded enough for great relaxation and privacy. We all fished from the dock, relaxed on the screened porch and ate lots of delicious seafood. We hope to return to this wonderful property soon!

Perfect location and layout of the house

by Paul
The dock, the bay, the ease of the ocean front was wonderful. We even saw “sea sparkle” in the bay one night! That was a thrill. We went crabbing and spent many hours on the deck soaking up the sun. What an amazing few days in Gulf Shores.

We really enjoyed our stay here. It was a great location close to everything . We used the boat dock for our boats and it was nice. We even meet the Neighbour's who came over and introduced their self. He was nice and even offered us to use his dock. Would defiantly stay here again.
