The Gulf shores of Alabama hold many dear memories for our entire family.

Leah Cosgrove purchased this cottage in 2012

The Rookery is a step back in time. It is a place of peace and relaxation; family and fun. Awake to the sounds of birds chirping and fall asleep to the sounds of the Gulf waves. Far enough from the high rise condos and crowded beaches to create your own special moments yet close enough to Gulf Shores to enjoy all of the restaurants, shopping and entertainment of a big city. Step out the front door of this cottage into a sandy paradise surrounded by beaches and the Bon Secour Wildlife Refuge. The view from every window reminds you that you are somewhere special. Walk the beach or bird-watch along the many nearby nature trails. Play tennis, ride bikes, swim, cook-out and just enjoy.

10 minute leisurely walk to the beachfront, 10 minute drive to the historic Fort Morgan with ferry boat to Dauphin Island. A full-service mini-mart (including pizza, ice cream and a liquor store) located across the main entrance to the Rokery for neccesities or a quick meal; Gulf Shores shopping, restaurants, and endless entertainment opportunities

SUPER VACATION SPOT!

  • 5 of 5
Condo is immaculate...it has everything you could possibly need! The entire complex is well maintained and clean. Great spot to be out of the hustle and bustle of downtown but close enough to be convenient. We had 3 generations on this trip and we all had a terrific time.

GREAT CONDO! EXCELLENT OWNERS... OVERALL PROPERTY ASSOCIATION NEEDS MAINTENANCE

  • 4 of 5
Beach Access is right across the street! This particular condo is one of the nicest properties we've ever stayed in! The condo is well stocked with things, We brought Kitchen stuff with us, but this place has it so you don't need too! Also, we experienced the pool being dirty, I notified the owner and she immediately notified the maintenance men for the property... The pool and hot tub were nice and sparsely attended. There is a wade in area in the pool which was perfect for my mom and my 2 year old.
This property would be a great place to stay if you had multiple families meeting at the beach as most of the community seems to be rentals.

CAPTAIN, U.S. NAVY (RETIRED) GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I traveled around the world. After 30 years of service we longed to visit the Gulf Coast where our journey first began. We chose the "Shell Shack" at the Rookery for its excellent interior designed furnishings, exceptional cleanliness, proximity to NAS Pensacola and, especially, its exceptional tranquility and communality with nature. Many a sunrise we experienced with birds, surf, sand, and wind. An unfettered walk on the shore line with the only people in sight for miles being us.

STRESS-FREE, EXTREMELY RELAXING

  • 5 of 5
We had the best time at the Shell Shack! The pictures don't capture how much room there really is in this cottage, plenty of space to spread out and relax. There is not one thing the owners haven't thought of to make your stay as comfortable as possible. We really felt at home the moment we opened the front door. The whole community at the Rookery make you feel welcome and part of their fun! We would recommend the Shell Shack to anyone wanting a relaxing, stress-free vacation where there is plenty to see and do, but at a relaxed pace so you don't need a vacation AFTER your vacation.
Thank you for opening your home and sharing this little piece of paradise!

HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5
This place is by far AMAZING!!! Very clean and neat. Has a "homey" feel as soon as you walk in the door. The community was also very clean and quite. My family loved staying here. Has everything inside you can imagine in case you forget something. My daughter is 18 months old and had no trouble getting around in the house or adjusting to it. If you are looking for a quite get away close to ocean this is the place!! You are close to the pool and hot tub and the picnic grounds and grills and the ocean access is just right across the street. The beach is not crowded or loud with lots of teenagers which was a plus to our family. I recommended this place to anyone looking for a WONDERFUL place to stay at Gulf Shores/ Fort Morgan!!!!
