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!

We stayed at this cottage in August 2013. There were 4 adults and 2 children. We had plenty of room. The bedrooms are spacious, and the office was really nice too. It is beautifully decorated and the floors are gorgeous. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed, and the island in the middle was useful for our buffet style suppers. There is an outside shower to wash the sand off your feet before entering the house which was a big plus! The pool is huge and just a short walk from the cottage. We went to the beach which is about 3 or 4 blocks across the hwy. We had no trouble parking and really enjoyed the ocean. We all enjoyed the peacefulness of the area.

I thought it was a great deal, one of the bedrooms is called an office, but to us, it was a movie room. It had doors that could close and it was away from the other bedrooms. It had the largest tv and a couch(sofa sleeper) in it. We were able to turn it loud and it wasn't disturbing our son who was asleep in his own room. We went with out 2 year old and this was our first family vacation, we really loved it. The setup was great, b/c our little one has an early bedtime, and we could just relax and know that he was safe. There are a few breakables in the house but easily put away so young children are easily accomodated. We went in the off season and it was so romantic and serene. The water was a little chilly, but the weather was perfect.

Wonderful beach vacation!

This beach cottage was wonderful! We stayed there with 4 adults and one toddler and had plenty of room. We could have slept 4 other people! The house was very clean and had everything we needed. The appliances are new and clean and work very well. There are tv's and dvd players in every room plus cable which helps when you have little ones! The beds were extremely comfortable. The owner of this cottage is very nice and prompt. I had no issues getting a hold of her ever and she was very helpful in giving ideas of things to do while on our vacation. The public beach right across the road is beautiful and clean. We went 4 days to the beach and had a blast! I love that there are pools at the Rookery. They were very well kept with plenty of chairs and tables. We meet several nice people at the zero entry pool! Gulf shores just down the road is a great place to do souviner shopping and go out to eat! We took a dolphin cruise on the Cold MIL and it was amazing! I would definately recommend this property! I'm pretty sure we will be coming back to stay again and bringing even more friends and family with us!

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.
