Our hope was to not only purchase a home for our enjoyment, but also have it available to share with the world.  Because of its beautiful surroundings, our prayer is that this home can be an inspiring and rejuvenating refuge where people can recharge as they relax in quietness and peace, appreciating the sights and sounds of God's Creation.  The name Soli Deo Gloria means ‘To God's Glory Alone’.  We invite you to make our home - yours.”

We love this property for our family stays! We were in need of a few days away but couldn’t get too far away from home. This was the best staycation! Love the pool and the privacy the house offers. Also, that it’s pet friendly! Also, love the comfortable feel of the house and the views are wonderful! Exactly what we needed!

Every minute of our stay at Soli Deo Gloria was AMAZING! There was more than enough room for our family. In the spacious kitchen, there was plenty of service and cooking ware. The coffee bar and ice maker were a special treat! The location was perfect for a family. It was in eye view of the basketball/pickleball/tennis court. The private pier was very convenient, and the pool was very clean.  The view was breath-taking and could be seen from just about every window. Having a laundry room on both the 2nd and 3rd floor was also very convenient. I cannot say enough amazing things about our stay at Soli Deo Gloria and the representatives from Harris were very responsive and courteous. Our family would definitely stay here again. Our week was one of the best of our lives!

Soli Deo Gloria was the perfect home for our large group. plenty of space to spread out and we loved that each Bedroom had its own private bathroom. It was also, the perfect location with beautiful views and easy access to both the beach and the lagoon in addition to enjoying the private heated pool. It was like Vacationing in Paradise without ever needing to leave. I would also highly recommend renting from Harris Vacations. Everything from making the Reservation all the way to Check in and check out was smooth and their customer service was always friendly and accommodating. I was extremely impressed with the response rate when i called with maintenance questions. Not only were they quick to return my call, but someone was immediately out there to help me. Thank you to Ryan and one other gentlemen that I failed to get your name for your help with the lights and grill and for your kind and friendly service and thank you to Lanette for always being so helpful and answering all my questions every time I called.

The location of this property was ideal for us because it was quiet and not congested with cars or people. We could enjoy the lagoon and the beach, both at our fingertips. The heated pool was a plus. The large garage was perfect for us because we brought our foldable Brompton bicycles and there was plenty of garage space for them. We loved the large kitchen and ample table space for eating and enjoying games and puzzles. Everyone had a private place to sleep and we enjoyed all the bathrooms.

Can’t say enough great things about this home- it was even better than the pictures! The location was incredible- very short walk to the beach AND on the lagoon. 180 degree picturesque views of the serene lagoon from huge windows. The beautiful decor, the large open space, the elevator- we didn’t ever want to leave! Being on the lagoon side was ideal- we rented kayaks and were able to keep them on the private dock all week. The kids spent so much time in the private heated pool. We are already making plans to come back!! ❤️

Soli Deo Gloria was amazing! Very aesthetically pleasing! The design of the home was very thought out and provides a very clean and organic feel along with amazing views. A very short distance to the beach and the pool is a nice option when we didn’t want to go to the beach. Property manager was always quick to respond Overall the house is definitely a 10/10!

Our stay at this beautiful home was the best experience we have ever had in beach rentals! The house was clean, stayed nice and cool, was convenient and had all we needed and more! The “Sonic ice” ice machine was the frosting on the cake! Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful home with us! We are already trying to decide when we can rent it again!!

We had a great time. Great location close walk to beach. Did not have to worry about not finding spot on beach. From the house there is a great view of water. When not cloudy enjoyed seeing the colors of the sun rise and a very short walk out on the public dock got to see beautiful colors of the sun set on water.

Our large family stayed here for the Christmas holiday and it was a great space for us. The location was great, large comfortable living spaces, easy access to the beach and nature trails, and everyone slept comfortably. The elevator was also a plus for elderly family members. The lagoon views were gorgeous and there was great morning birdwatching with a cup of coffee. Property management was easy to communicate with and everything ran smoothly. Also a plus we could bring our furry family members! We will absolutely stay here again.

My family and I just stayed at a property in Gulf Shores, AL and it was a wonderful experience. They were very helpful answering any questions prior to arrival and during the time of stay made sure that nothing was amiss. I highly recommend this company.

My family and I had a wonderful experience with the property at Soli Deo Gloria. The only issue that we ran across was the outside grill. It was not very useable and even after trying to clean out the leftover grease from the trap and cleaning off the grill itself, there was so much yucky residue at the bottom of the grill itself that I decided not to use it. I had brought my own propane take and tried to burn off some of the stuff but it still wasn't where I felt comfortable enough to grill on it. I just wanted to make sure someone was aware of this because I would imagine that unless it is used often, no one really checks this.Overall though, we thoroughly enjoyed our time there and it was an amazing experience. Thank you for the quick responses to all of our questions.

The property was great. Located a short walk(100 yards) from the beach and community pool. The private pool and boat house were great as well. Very quiet and private community. The beach was very private. The home was very accommodating for us and we had a total of 19 people. Each of 5 bedrooms had a king sized bed and full bath. The 6th bedroom had large bunk beds that accommodated 4 girls with room to spare. We all agreed that this was the best place we have stayed on the beach.

My family and I had a great time at Soli Deo Gloria. It was the first time that any of us have been to the Gulf Shore area. The house was awesome. With having some little grandchildren, we were so glad that it was just a short walk to the beach. I would highly recommend this house to anyone. We did have some issues with the AC one day, but someone came out and fixed it right away. That was greatly appreciated.

We were blessed to stay at the beautiful Soli Deo Gloria in Gulf Shores Alabama. An inviting spacious oasis buffered by a massive lagoon on one side and the Gulf of Mexico on the other. If you love nature and water this is the place for you. Private yet close to countless eateries and shopping. Tennis, basketball court, and a community pool are offered as well as a private pool on site. The house itself was new, modern and clean stocked with everything you need to start your vacation from the second you open the doors. A beautiful kitchen on one floor as well as a handy kitchenette with full size refrigerator microwave and dishes and sink on the other floor. Creative use of space makes for an inviting surrounding. This place is huge. Multiple families can certainly coexist while still having the privacy you may desire. The deck space surrounding the second and 3rd floors offers tons of room for grilling, stargazing or just taking in the natural beauty of your surroundings. The beach was clean and we never felt was overcrowded. Quite the opposite. Sunsets can be enjoyed from either a community boardwalk overlooking the massive lagoon or from the white sandy beach of the Gulf. Our stay was filled with fun and created many memories and I'm sure we will be returning. Vacations are for living it up and this house certainly made us feel like we were high rollers.

Enormous house with all the amenities described in the listing. Things not mentioned online, but noteworthy: they have a ping pong table with paddles and balls; there's a communal tennis court across the street from the house; there's also a community pool; the house is 3 stories, but has its own elevator which makes it easy to load/unload from the car; it's a gated community at the very end of Hwy 182 so there's little to no traffic, other than residents; the beach is a 3 minute walk away and the sunrises and sunsets are stellar from the shore. Things to know BEFORE you book: although VRBO will send you a list of suggested items to bring, you won't get this info until after you reserve/pay. So it may be helpful to know that each bathroom only has 1 roll of toilet paper - you are expected to bring more; same with paper towels, you'll need to bring some if you'll need more than 1 roll. The owners do supply plenty of dish and laundry detergent, but we still brought extra as my wife has an allergy to certain detergents. If you like to cook, you'll need to bring all your own spices, oils, etc - there are none. If you need foil or plastic wrap, bring that, too. And if you want to grill - there is a nice Charbroil on the top deck - you may need to purchase a tank of propane as this is not provided by the owners either. Overall, the property is awesome, quiet, and perfect for a large group or family getaway. And none of the "suggested items to bring" are meant as a complaint from us, just good info to have prior to arrival.

We had the distinct pleasure of staying at one of the properties managed by Harris Vacation Rentals. The property is Soli Deo Gloria. We believe that this is the best property where we have ever vacationed. The location, the amenities, the attention to detail, the warm inviting decor, the feeling of home was so welcoming. We were impressed with the spectacular views of the gulf and the lagoon. Sunrises and sunsets were magnificent. We enjoyed the many balconies that allowed for enjoyment of the views and gentle gulf breezes. We made good use of the private pool for evening relaxing swims. We have decided this will be our annual family get away. We've already booked for next year! Thank you for a great experience.

Fabulous House

by Jennifer
We all agreed this has been our favorite family beach vacation. The house is in the best location!! The lagoon on one side and the beach on the other. The kids enjoyed fishing on the pier and playing basketball on the court. The space in the home was generous and well equipped. We are already planning for our stay next year. Thanks for sharing your beautiful home.
