About Jim or Jan

We are two former Postal Workers who retired to the Beach.

We like to say: RETIRED POSTAL GONE COASTAL

Jim or Jan purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Jim or Jan chose Gulf Shores

We purchased the cottage new and lived in it from 2005 until 2008 when we moved to another cottage within walking distance. This is our only rental property and we take care of it ourselves, no management company. We also do the cleanings unless we are back in Southern Indiana visiting the grand kids.

What makes this cottage unique

The Rookery community is quiet and family oriented. No high rises here. Parking is right in front of the cottage. The view from the porch is the Bon Secour Wildlife Preserve. There is no place like it for a quiet get away or family vacation.

The pot of gold at the end of the rainbow...

  • 5 of 5
This lovely cottage was the perfect home away from home for our recent girls getaway. It was so cheerful and bright and spotlessly clean. The wonderful owners (Jan and Jim) thought of every little detail to enhance our stay, even down to the star-shaped ice cube trays!
The washer and dryer were a great perk.
We enjoyed watching the hummingbirds from the screened in porch and especially the serenity of the beach, just across the street.
The location was great - quiet and off the beaten path.
Definitely plan to return!

Enjoyed our stay!

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at the cottage. The beach is a quick drive across the street (wouldn't have been a bad walk but with kids and gear, driving was easier)...and the beach wasn't crowded at all! The pool in the community was nice as well...kids loved it. The cottage is well maintained, clean, and had many necessities for our stay, even washing machine detergent! It was very nice to wash our beach clothes before heading home! My only complaint would be the comfort of the beds. Thanks again, Mr. and Mrs. Hashem, for a wonderful place to stay!!

This cottage was very nicely decorated and very clean. The owners were helpful and very nice. We loved the pool and tennis courts. Only advice is to remember the bug spray. We would definitely stay here again. Thank you!
