CLOSEST ROOKERY TO THE BEACH

Fort Morgan Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Get away from the sardine canned condominium lifestyle and hurry up and wait atmosphere and come to where you only have to share the golden beaches and sparkling pools with just a few others. Relax in the shade of margarita lifestyle living--no stress, no hurry--a true get away from it all! Also, if you need more than one unit for your group, we work with our next door neighbor in booking whenever possible.

Located approximately 14 miles down Highway 180 from Gulf Shores is the Rookery, a development of quaint cottages. It has two pools; (a large one with a tiki bar across the bridge and a smaller one just behind us). It also has an outdoor jacuzzi.

Our cottage is the first one as you enter which makes it the closest to the beach. Public beach access is across Fort Morgan Road. Turn right leaving the Rookery, go 1/2 block and turn left on Cortez. The beach is straight ahead. Total distance is approx equivalent of three city blocks.

There are two top rated golf courses within a few miles: Kiva Dunes and The Peninsula, and several more within driving range. At the western end of Hwy 180 is historic Fort Morgan and a ferry that takes you on a 45 minute journey to Dauphin Island.

This unit is completely furnished in beach chic style comfort and freshness. It has one king-size bed, one queen-size, one set of twin beds and a queen-size sleeper sofa. All have great mattresses! There is no phone so we suggest bringing your cell.

There are two TV's connected to Directv satellite with local channels available and a DVD player. Internet is provided via a wireless router.

Each bath has a shower and tub. The kitchen comes with a full-size stove, refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave.

There is a washer and dryer. Dishes and linens are provided. Everything you need is within a few miles, so if you do not want to leave, you do not have to.

To get an idea on our location compared to the pool and beach, scroll down this page to location. Click satellite and zoom in with the '+' button. Our unit is the first one on the left after you turn in to The Rookery.

Long term rental rates are available.

GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
The landscape, location, and front/back design of this unit gave us much more seclusion than other units at the Rookery offered, and it was something we enjoyed. Ron was very easy to work with and its a place we would definitely consider staying at again.

QUIET AND CLOSE TO THE BEACH

Sunny, clean, and spacious place. Easy walk to the beach. A nice quiet change from the busy high rise condos. Ron was very easy to work with.

The cottage was absolutely wonderful ~ Bright, clean, peaceful, and close to beaches with so few people they're almost private. The pools were great for evening swims & sitting on the porch in a gulf breeze was so relaxing. We're trying to plan for other times to go back and enjoy again!

We had a wonderful time. The house was very clean,equipped and plenty of room for 3 adults and 7 children that went with us. It was also no hassle with renting..(Thanks Ron)It was far enough away from all the traffic and close to the beach. We also enjoyed the zero entry pool. Count on us being a return guest.... our stay was from July 7th-11th

We found the house to be as advertised by the owner. It was a bargain as opposed to the on the beach houses. It was out of the way of city traffic (14 miles from Gulf Shores but near a great beach about 400 yards away). It was well furnished and the kitchen well equipped as a three bedroom 2 bath house with a nice laundry. The ceiling fans were nice to assist the air conditioning with the cooling. It was convenient to the beach and pool. It was in really good shape and spacious enough for our 5 adults and 4 small children. The owner is very thorough with details and things are as he says they will be.
We were there in June 29 - July 6,2009.
