This condo is exactly as described, clean and very well maintained. The owners are also very easy to communicate/work with. We really enjoyed our stay at the Rookery! It is a secluded community, in a quiet area of the Gulf Shores, that allows you to relax and enjoy your vacation, without a lot of other people around. We had coffee every morning with "Fred," the small (2-3 feet long), resident pond alligator, while sitting on the porch. There is a fence that prevented him, from visiting up close and personal. The full kitchen there enabled us to cook meals whenever we wanted. There was plenty of room for all six of us to be together in the condo. The pool is a 2 minute walk away. The beach is a 5 minute car ride or a 10 minute walk away. We enjoyed both of them every day! We also enjoyed great seafood at a reasonable price at Tacky Jack's restaurant and Bubba's Seafood House in Orange Beach. We highly recommend making advanced reservations for a dolphin cruise out of Orange Beach, as well as walking out on the state pier there, to see the boats and the fish they catch! Our kids also enjoyed riding the Ferris Wheel and the light show at night at the Wharf shopping center there. We look forward to another vacation at the Rookery soon!
