|Minimum Stay||2 - 7 nights|
Wall Street sits closer to the Gulf than all of the homes nearby, giving it a very private and secluded feel. Many of our guests continue to rent Wall Street because of this great feature.
Inside you will find the main living area, kitchen, dining area, and living room all directly beach front. The views and sounds of the Gulf literally fill this entire space. The kitchen was remodeled in the winter of 2009 with new living room furniture was added in 2012.
The master bedroom is located on the second floor has a queen bed and full private bathroom. These are the only rooms on the second floor giving you ample privacy. The other two bedrooms are downstairs and both have queen beds. We also provide a queen size blow-up mattress to accomodate a guest to sleep in the living area.
Wall Street also has access to the beach front pool that serves the other three beach front homes we have next door.
You might ask how such a uniquely Southern beach cottage came to have the name of Wall Street. This home is next door to Wings of Eagles and for years Steve Harris had tried to convince the owner to sell him the property but he would not part with it. In 1989 the owner of Wall Street, the house was not yet named at this time, came to Steve after having had a particularly rough year in the stock market. The owner needed funds and sold the house to Steve. Fittingly Steve named the house Wall Street.
If you party is larger, please consider: Wings of Eagles, Summer Wind, or Summer of 42 for additional space. These homes are all next door, are beach front, and share the community pool.

We love people of all ages, and we want everyone to enjoy our homes. However, we do require that an adult 25 years or older to reserve the home and be present at the home during your entire stay. We do not rent to anyone under the age of 25. We have no exception to this policy.
This property is one of 20 vacation properties managed by Harris Properties Management, Inc. Harris Properties started by Steve and Becky Harris in 1983 with the purchase of 'SH 59' (now known as 'Catalina,' VRBO #318060).
Gulf Shores and Fort Morgan are the most beautiful beaches in the south. We have powder white sand and beautiful blue waters in a family friendly area!
I had one of the best times at the beach this year at Wall Street. The views were breath taking, clean beach, great weather, fishing interesting. Location was unbelievable being so close to the water. The home was clean and great lay out . Your staff was very cooperative with the couple of issues that were taken care of. Will plan to come back again next year.
We just returned from a stay at Wall Street and want to share our experience.
The pros: The home is very close to the beach. You really do feel like you have a private area all to yourself because the home is set closer to the water then other properties. The shared pool is nice to cool off in when you want to change up the scenery with kids. Gulf Shores itself has many kid friendly activities however please note that this will be a 30 minute drive away at minimum.
The cons: The management company is very clear on this however please note that they do not provide enough “necessities” for your visit. Dish soap, laundry soap, etc are up to you to bring. Only 1 small roll of paper towels and 1 roll of toilet paper per bathroom were provided as well as only 1 incredibly thin trash bag that ripped when only half way filled. We were there for 3 nights with 3 adults and 3 kids and were given 8 towels and had to go out and buy laundry soap. I would think for this length of stay and at this price, they would provide more essentials.
In addition to this I'll be honest that the home fell short of my expectations. I would expect a little more when in actuality the home was a hazard with broken tiles and carpet nails protruding from the ground where carpet was apparently ripped off. We all inadvertently stepped on the nails and had to end up putting towels over the spots to prevent further injury (remember towels are in high demand as well!). I am understanding of general wear and tear (example the paint is cracking, the refrigerator rusted, the floor is warped) on a rental property however this property was in disrepair and in need of some attention before welcoming more quests to the establishment…….especially those with small children.
Signage in the property said that they would only come for repairs over the weekend in case of an emergency so we did not call the management company. Of course now they are saying they would have come to repair it if I had called…..
My husband and I, our two daughters, and our two dogs rented this place for a week. First impression was that it needed some maintenance. with that said, who cares what the inside of the house looks like when the view and the beach are what we were here for. We rented kayaks for the week from gogokayaks.com. the stove only has 2 burners that worked, (didn't discover that til day 3) and our master toilet had an issue which the management place responded quickly and efficiently. We loved this place! Dogs and all! It was so private and quiet. Everyone was respectful and loved the dogs. We were barely inside, because the sound of the ocean just draws you closers.
We just arrived today. We were greeted with roaches, a dirty, run down house, blood on the "clean" pillowcases, a toilet in the master bathroom that isn't attached to the floor. We are very disappointed in the house. The views are beautiful but the house is not.
The winter of dec 14 thru Mar 2015 . This was the first time for renting Wall Street. We were so happy with this cottage, it make you feel you are on the beach alone. It is the only house this. CLose to the ocean. At night all you see is stars, sunsets and water. It is very relaxing. We enjoy this type of vacation and would recommend this property that enjoys the same
Wallstreet is BY FAR the best placed I have ever stayed at on the beach. You feel like you are the only ones on the beach since the house sits out further than any others. It was VERY clean and had everything we needed for a great stay. Having access to the pool was PERFECT for us since we have a 3 yr old that would get tired of the sand. Myself and my family will FOREVER stay at Wallstreet during our future visits. FYI try the Sassy Bass for dinner, it is FABULOUS and a great little quaint atmosphere.
My first impression entering the home was the amazement of how clean it was!! I love the rustic feel that Wall Street exhibits. Although my stay was during the holiday weekend, it was incredibly peaceful. The private location was wonderful! I was able to disconnect and relax for once! Having access to the pool was a HUGE plus for me. I thoroughly enjoyed it!!!
