Wonderful stay in a beautiful cottage.

  • 5 of 5
Oh how we enjoyed our stay at this condo! Not only was every exchange and encounter easy, but this condo has everything one would need. We ate out very few times, due to being able to utilize all of the amenities in the kitchen. Our group was able to enjoy several sunrises on the beach VERY nearby. As a larger group, we certainly enjoyed our stay and would return to this area and this condo. We made full use of the washer/dryer, wifi, and all kitchen accessories. Might I also add that the décor was beautiful. Lots of fun photos and paintings!!!

A wonderful, quiet, clean place to stay

  • 5 of 5
Loved the cottage! We stayed 7/6/14-7/13/14. The owner was so easy to deal with from the booking thru check out. It was such a nice, very clean, secluded place. The kitchen was fully stocked with anything you might need. The internet was alittle slow but, really, WHO CARES!!!! :) We most definitely will stay in this cottage again when we get back to Gulf Shores!

Peaceful- Great Customer Service- Clean

  • 5 of 5
My family has vacationed at this cottage quite a few times. Before, during, and after our stays, we have always had excellent customer service and communication with the owner! Southern hospitality! The cottage is beautifully decorated, clean and the area is family friendly. Amongst all that we love about our stays here, something else that is special to us-- the genuine friendliness of the people in the area! Looking forward to our next stay!

Loved The Cottage!!!!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I booked this cottage in hopes of a wonderful, relaxing vacation - and we were right!!! The owner has the kitchen full of everything you need to prepare & cook meals. We loved the outdoor shower, where we and the kids could rinse the sand off; loved the zero-entry pool for the baby; comfortable mattresses; and lots of space! We will definitely be back and would recommend this cottage to anyone wanting to vacation in Gulf Shores! And, thank you Jenny for making the process so easy!

Nice place, owner was non responsive

  • 1 of 5
The property itself was nice, far away from the action of gulf shores and quiet. Nicely furnished and a good kitchen Clean upon arrival. About a 20 minute drive to the Hangout and other fun restaurants/locations on the strip. It is attached to another unit, the listing didn't really make that clear, but it wasn't an issue as there was noone staying there during our trip.

Pool was a two minute walk. Grills were by the pool, so it was a hassle to grill out, the equipment itself was nice. Second pool was difficult to get to, and small.

Beach was a 15 minute walk or 2 minute drive away. Gorgeous sand, and cleaner and nicer than the beaches in Gulf Shores, especially for the kids.

LOTS of gnats, making the pool unusable for most of the trip, although the beach was still nice. The locals said it was due to an unusual amount of rainfall. Hey, when in Rome, right? It is a wildlife refuge, so that was not unexpected. Just be aware that you can't even sit on the balcony if you are sensitive, the bugs go right through the screens.

Internet did not work, phone did not work, DVD players did not work, sent the owner 4 emails before she responded. Claimed she was "sick". If this seems petty, we did have three small kids on the trip under age 7, so we needed some distractions while in the condo. Plue, free WIFI is listed right in the title of the condo advertisement.

Upon return home I have emailed, called and texted the owner regarding my security deposit, with no response. This is frustrating, as I have only requested a timeline, and she cannot even provide that.

The only reason this is a 1 star review is because of the owner. With the amount of communication routes available today, there is no excuse to treat people like this especially when we were spending our hard earned money on our first vacation in three years, with three little ones.

Based upon the property and location, I would have easily given this 4 stars with a little communication, and the free WIFI as listed.

We love the Rookery! :)

  • 5 of 5
This was our third stay at a property at the Rookery and by far the best. Our stay was great! We were able to relax in the condo, at the beach and at the pool. It was exactly what we needed. The booking and check-in process was seamless, and the accommodations were wonderful. We were pleasantly surprised by how wonderfully the kitchen was "stocked" with all of the necessary dishes and utensils we needed to cook our meals there rather than eat out every meal. The beds were so comfortable, we were all able to sleep in. :) We hope we will be able to stay here again sometime!

Notes:
The Rookery was designed to be a natural quiet resort and is located adjacent to the Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge. There are several golf courses near by and this unit is only 15 miles from Gulf Shores Parkway, without any of the traffic and crowds. A marina, boat dock and restaurants are nearby. Alabama's Gulf Coast offers a wonderful variety of inshore and offshore saltwater fishing. Driving west from Gulf Shores along Fort Morgan Road brings you to the end of the peninsula, where Fort Morgan stands guard to the mouth of Mobile Bay along with its sister, Fort Gaines on Dauphin Island, a ferry-ride away. You can also visit the Estuary located on Dauphin Island, or the Gulf Coast Zoo in Gulf Shores. Waterville is a water park in Gulf Shores, while The Track offers amusement park rides & an arcade. At the Rookery you will also find nature trails, tennis courts, a barbecue area, as well as a bike path. A short drive to Foley offers the Tanger Outlet, a large outlet mall.
